Thank you Jon. You are fantastic also.
Impressive home, to relax and unwind.
We have a wonderful few days in this beautiful house. Our party of nine adults had plenty of space to relax and unwind. All rooms are large with comfortable beds and excellent bath and shower facilities. We did a lot of cooking during our stay, and found the kitchen to be well stocked with good equipment for almost any meal. The host was very understandable with our late arrival thanks to a delayed flight, even going so far as to leave us with an evening snack when we final got there.
The property is very private and surrounded by trees on all sides. It sits on the side a hill so the tress do not obscure the view of the country side . to much. The house is only about 20 mins drive from downtown San Sebastien and there is a large supermarket about 3 mins drive away. Getting to the house from Bilbao airport is very simple, and takes just over an hour.
Thank you. The group was also very nice. Very good visitors.
Perfect vacation home!
This house is fantastic! The living area has a variety of rooms, for reading, watching television, using the internet (yes, it has wifi) or having a conversation or two with dear friends. The kitchen was very well equipped, with a good size clothes washer and dryer, and a dishwasher. Plenty of dishes, pots, pans, and cooking utensils made cooking easy, although the location is near so many excellent restaurants we cooked less than we usually do. We are a mixed group, two couples from England, two from the USA, and one from Sweden. We have been meeting somewhere for a vacation every year or so since 2009 and we all agree this is our favorite house! Joxe is a great host as well, with a table full of recommendations for things to do and see nearby.
Thanks. You are also a wonderfull people. Kind regards.
Sept in San sebastian
We are six couples in our sixties and seventies. We had a wonderful week in oiartzun, the week before the film festival in San sebastian. We went to botanic garden in Asia, hiked the camino in pasajes de san Juan, went to the beach in hondarribia and hendaye and san sebastian, ate pinxtos like crazy, played handball in the court downstairs, made wonderful dinners, enjoyed all the space, and had a terrific time. Jose was great.
We also had a great people.
Thanks a lot!
We had an excellent time staying in this magnificent house. As you can see by the pictures, there are many rooms as well as areas for hanging out, reading a book, enjoying a cocktail, or taking a nap! (my personal favorite was the hammock =). The house is truly a masterpiece and the owner Jose does a fantastic job taking care of it. Jose was an excellent host, answered all our questions, and even helped us make dinner reservations we we arrived late on the first night. He was available whenever we needed him. This area of Pais Vasco is gorgeous with tons of small villages, beaches, pintxo bars, and hiking paths explore. The town of Oiartzun is quaint with friendly locals eager to chat and explain their rich culture and history. I will for sure be back at some point in my life!
We had a wonderful time at this fantastic place. If you are coming to the San Sebastián area I heartily recommend you use this place as a base. The host, Joxeanjel was charming and could not do enough for us. The house itself is secluded, secure with lovely grounds. The facilities are excellent with all possible needs catered for. Joxeanjel also recommended a visit to Zuberoa, a wonderful, charming Michelin Star restaurant within two minutes' walk of the house. A lovely, small discreet restaurant with a nice homely feel, lovely relaxed service from a very well-informed, friendly team who put us at ease. I particularly liked the fact that they had an extensive wine list (book!) with wines to suit every budget, not always the case in 'fine dining' restaurants and were so helpful in helping us make the right choice. And the food was amazing too! 😊�. The house is around a 20 minute drive to the heart of the beautiful San Sebastián and its beaches. The house is surrounded by lovely countryside with lots of countryside walk and hill walks. There is a 15km cycle path which runs close by which takes priority over the cars. Excellent! All in all the perfect escape for a large family or group (we were 12) Thank You!
Thank you. You also are a very nice family.
