Peaceful Area

  • 3 of 5

If you enjoy remote areas and enjoy hiking this is a great area! Seven days was a few days too long for my friend and I even with day trips to Granada, Nijar, San Jose and other close by attractions. Upon arrival we were met by a local woman who didn’t speak any English and was very “rushed” in the orientation of the house. In this rural area due to limited power supply the power goes off periodically for about 5 minutes or so at a time so ensure you have a flashlight handy at night. After finding a dead cockroach the first night we asked if there was another house we could transfer to but was told it was not possible. If we spoke Spanish we would have felt comfortable leaving this location earlier but were not certain we would find other accommodations. In regards to the house:

Pros: Clean (although a dead cockroach was found on first day which we were told was “odd”, we didn’t see anymore after the first day), washer and a clothes line to dry clothes, secure doors and windows, second half bath was nice to have, spacious and quiet (no road traffic)

Cons: No toilet paper when we arrived so Esther asked the local women to bring over a few rolls, when we ran out we were told that we had to buy our own. Unclean blankets, no soap, one dish towel (it would have been nice to have two). The walls are paper thin so when the neighbours would leave their dog in the morning when they left for work he would cry for around 30 minutes, we would also hear him late at night when we assumed the owners would go out for the night.

Owner's Response: In response: I think that your comments a little negative about your experience are due to the fact that you did not clearly understand the house rental habits in Spain: - Toilet paper just like any other product of personal consumption is not included when you rent a house in Spain. For courtesy, in our house you will always find a couple of rolls of toilet paper on arrival. If it was not, it was for a little forgetfulness, but this did not cause you any serious problem because 10 minutes after you asked for it, a person went to the house to take it. What we could not attend was your request to return toilet paper after 6 days of your stay, on Sunday afternoon. Sorry but it's not a hotel, it's just a rental house. - Regarding the cockroach, you are the first person to complain about that subject and you can check it in the amount of positive references that there is about our house in Homelidays. -The blankets like the rest of the bedding in the house are always spotlessly clean and there have never been any complaints. -the person who waited for you at the arrival of the house, went to look for you while you went around with the car quite lost, to take you to the same door. I do not know if you can expect some more service but certainly not in our country. - Regarding the problem you had with the power goes off, maybe you do not remember that I explained to you that it had been a general problem in the town due to the nearby storm. It is not usual as you could check the rest of your stay. -Yes, the person who received you does not know any English but she has never had any problem giving the keys to people of different nationalities: English, French, Dutch, Italian, German ... perhaps for her sympathy. -When renting a house in Spain, is not included an online service of tourist guide. Even so I answered the continuous sms that you sent me the first two days. Finally, for your information, if you ever rent a house again in Spain I inform you that it is also customary to take the garbage to the clean points located to deposit it. I mention it for the quantity of plastic bottles and 7 bottles of wine that You left without recycling. I recommend that in the near future you decide to choose a hotel instead of a rental house because in Spain the type of service that your demands does not exist and that is why your degree of satisfaction is so low. Greetings.

"Very peaceful place in a small village.

Close to the house there is a nice beach with sand and rocks (about 5 minutes walk). You can found other lovely beaches with the car.

The house is in googd condition and quite big.

The washing machine was very useful."

4.10-12.10 2017 8 Tage zum Genießen

  • 4 of 5

Schönes Apartment sehr ruhige Lage, mit Sicht auf die Berge. Mitten im Nationalpark sehr zentral gelegen. Auto ein muss da kein Busverkehr vorhanden. Trampen nach langer Wanderung zurück zum Ort sehr einfach. Der Ort selber (La Isleta del Moro) beschaulich mit einem kleinem Tanta Ema laden und jeden morgen mit frischen Brot. Der Nationalpark ist sehr schön zum Wandern und Bademöglichkeiten finden sich an den vielen Buchten zuhauf . FKK überall möglich außerhalb der kleinen Dörfer.

Vacaciones inmejorables

Han sido unos dias increibles en un entorno incomparable. El duplex fue perfecto, super tranquilo y al lado de la playa. Muy limpio y cómodo. Tambien mencionar los restaurants de la Isleta. En general unas vacaciones de ensueño. Repetiremos.

Owner's Response: Nos alegramos mucho de que hayan disfrutado. Cuando quieran volver serán bien recibidos en Casa La Isleta o si quieren cambiar o son más personas: en Casa La Calilla , en San José. https://www.homelidays.es/gd/dash/814.8291610.4348360 Seguro que también sería de su agrado. Un cordial saludo.

La Isleta
Car: necessary

To take the "Mediterráneo" Motorway of Almeria to Murcia. About 25 Kms before Almeria, take the turn-off for San Jose. 5 Kms before arriving in San Jose, take the turn-off for "La Isleta" (it takes approximately 3 Kms)

The zone is a welcome to rest and ideal for scuba diving, and many other outdoor sports. In the village there are two scuba-diving centers which are open all year round. It´s also very interesting to do some excursions in the nature reserve by foot, by bicycle, by 4X4 or even by boat along the coast discovering the many extra-ordinary beautiful coves. In La Isleta there are several restaurants in which you can savour excellent fish of the day, paella and other typical food from the region.
