The Summer Months: The beach of Isla Canela is unlike most beaches in Spain it is very quiet and relaxing and has many beach restaurants providing locally caught fish and fantastic Spanish food. It is a very unhurried atmosphere and in no time you will want to return. We recommend you visit Ayamonte Town in the evening and return after dinner to park up on the beach and enjoy the local bars and entertainment and then just stroll a few meters back to your apartment without the worry of getting cabs or driving, or enjoy the fantastic views from the balcony with your favourite tipple as you watch the excellent sunset over Portugal. There is a train that picks you up opposite the apartment at takes you to Isla Canela Marina (Punta Moral)where you can sample all types of food and drink, then at the end of the evening you catch the train back to the apartment and need never have to drive whilst on the Island. There are also some fantastic hotels offering nightly cabarets and children's entertainment.

Golf Course bookings and discounts:

If you are interested in playing other golf courses other than Isla Canela such as Castro Marim, El Rompido, Quinta de Ria, Quinta de Cima, Benimor, Islantilla etc then we can arrange for tee times,discounts and club hire delivered to your apartment for as little as €25.00.

We have a local company who can deliver Golf Clubs direct to your apartment.. Please let us know at time of booking.

About Robert

My name is Robert. I have spent many weeks in Isla Canela and Ayamonte and find it to be Spain's hidden treasure. We named the apartment after my daughters, Casa Chareb. Charlotte & Rebecca. X

Robert purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Robert chose Huelva Province

The apartment has fantastic views and is minutes from the beach. you can pop home for lunch on the balcony. There is everything close by. The sunset towards Portugal in the evening is stunning and sets just before 9.00 PM so get your drinks ready to enjoy. The apartment is one of three on our floor and is fully secluded. Its just perfect and with free Wifi..

What makes this apartment unique

The view from the balcony is breath taking. The location to the beach is the best. quiet and secluded Balcony. Fully equipped for that family holiday or romantic break. The gardens and pool are the best kept on the Island by the keep Manola who is very helpful..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Robert,

Just a short note about last week in Isla Canela. The instructions on how to get to the apartment were very precise and accurate. We thought the apartment was lovely and the description on the Holiday Rentals website was very accurate too.You were right about the sunsets on the balcony. We tried most of the restaurants in the Playa area. The fish restaurant was excellent if you like shell fish which my wife did. The Chinese one was very good as was the Andulusian. The resort, for us was just what we wanted. Quiet, no nightclubs.

The beach was very good and the sea surprisingly warm..


Your apartment is really lovely and very home from home!

The pool & grounds are kept lovely & clean. The beach is clean & relaxing.

The ice-cream parlour opposite the apartment was wonderful. We went into the marina via the little train which was a giggle & found restaurant there we really enjoyed.

Thank you again for a lovely holiday.

Ideal Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were recommended the apartment by family who have visited before, and as a young couple we thought we would try the area. On speaking to Robert he did point out that the Location of the apartment was ideal and the views were fantastic(no building work in progress). we enjoyed evenings sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down with our favourite tipple. The apartment has everything we could need and we made it our own for the duration of the stay.The area is very laid back and slow which we wanted and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Robert gave us some really helpfull tips and hints with regards to car hire and places to go and things not too miss, unfortunately we were to relaxed to do everything. so maybe next year we can do it. Thank you again Robert.

Hemos estado como en casa

  • 4 of 5

Hemos estado una semana en Isla Canela en casa de Robert! Y la verdad es que nos hemos sentido como en nuestra propia casa.

El apartamento está totalmente equipado! Por tener teníamos hasta una nevara para ir a la playa y un par de sombrillas.

Esta fantásticamente situada, a menos de un minuto andando de la playa...Para los días de mucho viento el apartamento tiene piscina que ayuda a complementar el día de playa!

Cerca de unos cuantos restaurantes y chiringuitos para comer o cenar! En cualquiera se come muy bien.

Lo único de mejora sería tener mejor señal de wifi ya que nos conectábamos pero no iba correctamente!

Por lo demás genial unas vacaciones para no olvidar, sobre todo alguna cena en la terraza viendo la puesta de sol.

También queremos agradecer la hospitalidad de Jon que nos recibió el día que llegábamos.

Felicidades por la buena experiencia que nos han ofrecido.

Lovely scenic getaway with a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit here and once again we had the most amazing week enjoying the pool, large beach and the wonderful local restaurants. The tapas place only a 3 min walk has amazing Spanish food! Everything and anything we needed to know could be answered in the detailed manual Robert has provided, making for a relaxing trouble free holiday! The apartment was very clean and had everything you could possibly require. We will defiantly be returning again soon, those sunsets on the balcony will be missed.

A hidden Gem on Spain s Costa del la Luz

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at your apartment. Situated right on the beach, fantastic views and sunsets towards Portugal. We had a couple of days where it was cloudy but we went to Portugal shopping in Monte Gordo. Booking with Robert was seaml3ss and he asvis3s us on things to avoid and car hire. Having fast wifi was a god send in keeping in touch with family at home. We are already planning our next stay on Isla Canela.

Thank you again.

Justine & Robin

The weather is warm all year round but can get very hot in the summer months. Please Note: There are many apartments for rental on the Island.
