De eigenaresse Su is echt een sterk service ingestelde lady die een heel korte reactie tijd heeft op e-mails, App'jes of telefonische vragen. Bijvoorbeeld: Koffiezetter loopt slecht door? De volgende dag staat er een nieuwe. Vraag over een fietsroute? Binnen een kwartier reactie op de App! Zo kan ik nog wel even doorgaan... En dan de Villa: echt waanzinnig! Wij waren met 12 personen (ouders, 5 volwassen kinderen en hun partners) en iedereen was even enthousiast. De slaapkamers hebben heel fijne en goede bedden, het zwembad is echt geweldig en de tafeltennis, het tafelvoetbalspel met een WII zorgen voor voldoende vermaak. Goede Wi-Fi verbinding. De ligging met uitzicht op omliggende heuvels en de zee is perfect! Het is schoon, effectief ingericht en het ontbreekt de huurders werkelijk aan niets! Mocht je nog twijfelen, niet doen! Dit is echt een perfecte locatie. Wandeling naar de boulevard in Torre del Mar is ca 45 minuten. Met de auto naar de supermarkt is 5 minuten. Het ter beschikking hebben van een auto om de omgeving te verkennen of naar plaatsen als Grenada of Malaga te gaan is echt een must. Als je slecht ter been bent is het goed te weten dat de main villa vanaf de straat en het zwembadniveau alleen via verschillende "traptreden" bereikbaar is. Valt er dan echt helemaal niet af te dingen op Espana Escape? Wij kunnen niets bedenken in ieder geval. Su... THANKS!!

The cottage itself is well stocked, and the welcome drinks in the fridge were indeed very welcome!! We received a warm welcome by Abi who was at the property waiting for us ready to answer any questions we had. All the property facilities are as described, I cannot think of a single thing that is needed on holiday that was not provided. Our week was spent walking in the area which was fab; returning to the cottage, getting a drink and sitting on the beach, often with the beach to ourselves, was divine. Having breakfast on the terrace was lovely, although we did not have the time to take advantage of the sun loungers up there. Just 30 yards down on the beach is a lovely beach bar with welcoming hosts, good food which you can enjoy sat with your feet in the sand and your mind in heaven! We are back again this April for our second visit!
