This is more like 10 star!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from spending two weeks in this fantastic apartment. It was beautifully furnished and equipped and I loved the wall hangings and lights. The use of wifi was extremely useful and it worked well. We tended to use the top terrace with a warm breeze and wonderful views over to Tangier on a clear day.

The locals made us extremely welcome and we loved exploring the narrow streets and surrounding area – Cadiz, Jerez and Barbate. For our first week the town was still very buzzy with buskers entertaining us at all times of day but it was much quieter the second week, restaurants had started to cut back their hours, there were fewer tourists about and it was much cooler.

For ease of parking we would recommend the free area by the Tourist Information Centre with a 5-10 minute walk uphill to the apartment.

Thank you Josh for sharing your wonderful apartment and thank you to Puri who welcomed us.

Great flat in a lovely town

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here and loved the flat as well as the town. The location in the Plaza de Espana is really lovely, the flat is well equipped and more than fulfilled our needs. The terraces are great (but overlooked by tourists visiting the ramparts opposite). A few comments to add to that said by previous reviewers:

If you don't like hair raising ascents as indicated by Kristi, take the second turning up to Vejer coming from Tarifa rather than the first. It is much easier. Being in the centre of town there is no parking but it is easy to stop to dump bags off and pick them up again. There is a pay car park just round the back in Calle Corredera but it is very expensive. On some days we were lucky enough to be able to park a bit further down on the same road, otherwise there is a big parking lot off Calle los Remedios about 10 mins walk. Both these options are free. As for WiFi, the town service is not expensive and fine for emails and general browsing but not for heavy streaming.

We made several trips out to Gibraltar, Tarifa, Jerez, Cape Trafalgar (I always wondered where the battle took place), various villages. We also made a day trip to Tangier, but to be honest the only point in doing that is to be able to tick off that you have been to Morocco.

Overall highly recommended.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

There is absolutely nothing not to love about this stunning apartment! It's spacious with every amenity you could ask for...clean modern bathrooms, spacious bedrooms, large kitchen/dining room, two spectacular rooftop terraces with 360 degree views of everything from the the ancient wall right next door, the towns central plaza & fountain to never ending views of the coastline.

With its fantastic location we were able to comfortably take two day trips, one to Barbate & a couple of smaller towns & one to Tarifa. For cautious drivers, the drive up and down the road climbing to Vejer is winding and narrow & takes some getting used to!

Josh was amazing and eager to help with arrangements and suggestions. Take his advice and eat in the lovely courtyard dining just across the street at Califa.

The key to the apartment door does take some serious finessing but it gets easier with experience.

We did miss not having wifi in the apartment but it was available at most cafe' s and restaurants in town.

I can only hope that we will have the opportunity to return to this beautiful town and stunning apartment someday!

Owner's Response: I want to thank you Kristi Moore very much for her great review. Regarding not having wifi, I regret to say, as the season in Vejer is short we don't contract wifi. However the local wifi is available and appears when one turns on their computer. We are not allowed to advertise for other companies but it is the only wifi service in town but at a reasonable cost. We ourselves contract it's service temporarlily when using our apartment in Vejer.

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

We just had Christmas in this apartment and it was perfect. Spacious enough for the three of us - we even changed our plans for a night away so that we could maximise our time on the roof terrace! I slept like a log as it's very quiet and pitch black with the shutters closed. A lovely kitchen to cook in as well - we finished up cooking a lot as the layout of the kitchen is very conducive to communal cooking and hanging out. Little touches, like the beer fridge on the top terrace, was very welcome. Comfy beds, reliable internet connection, good hot showers (a hairdryer would have been handy for us baggage-limited Easyjet flyers) and the lovely Puri to welcome us made the trip perfect. We'll be coming back and have already recommended this apartment to our friends. Thanks again for a lovely experience!
