Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Albaicín - Hemingway

2 bedrooms, views, wifi, free parking, outside terraza, cable TV, 2 person bath

Please note that the price stated on this site is not correct, please contact me for the correct price.

The Space

This is a home from home and I want you to be feel completely at home when you stay here. The house is on three floors: there are stairs up from the entrance gate to the first patio with the jasmine pergola and the front door. The bedrooms and bathroom are on the first floor and the one the second floor, there is the lounge, kitchen and sun terrace. I really like cooking and entertaining so the kitchen is fully equipped with an electric oven, hob, dishwasher and normal cooking utensils, plates, glasses, fridge/freezer, etc. and also a washing machine. There is a table and chairs where you can eat outside in the summer months.

Guest Access

With the exception of the top terrace (staircase locked with a key), guests have access to the whole house. It is yours for the duration of your stay and I want you to feel at home when you are here.

Interaction with Guests

Personally when I go on holiday, I prefer to be left to my own devices to settle in and explore the place at my own pace. Basically, I want you to feel at home and so I will leave you alone. However, having said that, I am always available 24/7 at the end of a phone to solve any problems you may have, to offer advice, recommend places to go, organise taxis, etc. I will also provide you with detailed arrival instructions which will explain how to get to the house without any problems as I know just how to difficult it is to drive through Granada because of the one-way and restricted resident traffic systems. I am not very good at cleaning and so I prefer to employ a cleaner who will do it better than me. This is the woman who will also meet you and show you the house. I look forward to seeing you soon and hope that you will enjoy 'mi casa y barrio' as much as I do.

The Neighborhood

What can I say? I might be biased but I think this is the perfect neighbourhood. It is a short walk up to the Plaza Larga where are still traditional small, local shops, small supermarkets, a bread shop, a daily vegetable market and a flower market on Saturdays. If you fell like eating out, there are plenty of tapa bars and restaurants, and squares where you can sit out, enjoy a drink and just people watch. For that really special occasion, there are also some fantastic restaurants set in some of the old carmenes in the Albaicín. There is even a restaurant with gardens where you can see a flamenco show while you eat.

On the other hand, walking down the hill, you quickly come to Calle Elvira with its lively nightlife and the Gran Via (the main thoroughfare of Granada). This is where the modern centre of Granada starts.

Getting around

Granada is such a small city, the best way to get around is on foot. If you do come by car, it is possible to park directly outside or near the house.

However, 50 metres down from the house there is a bus stop where you can catch the C1 circular bus which links the centre of Granada and the Albaicín.

Taxis are also cheap in the centre of Granada.

Other Things to Note

The heating uses an automatic system which can be controlled via internet. It should always be warm when you arrive. If at any moment you feel cold just phone me and I will put it onto full power immediately. (10 000 watts) There is no reason for anyone to be cold no matter what the weather.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The accommodation was very good. Bedrooms basic but cool. Living area excellent, particularly the terrace with table, bbq etc. Generally a lovely cottage, well equipped, good bathroom & kitchen, beds ok, stairs seriously difficult, lots of steps up to property, terrace gorgeous, yes generally not bad - I know, I look after 400 properties in uk west country!

Great Little Apartment in Albaicin

  • 4 of 5

Nice little house to spend a few days in Granda. John and Sarah were very responsive and even fixed a heating issue while we where there. Their site to Grandad is extremely useful, so was of great advantage to book with them and find out about their website as well as the little pamphlet they have prepared with information surrounding the house. Not right in the middle of the routes route, so nice to feel like a local, but also a short walk to the viewpoint and the interesting plaza larga.

Owner's Response: Although the purpose of renting the house is to make money we are not really satisfied unless the guests are happy and we do everything in our power to make their stay pleasant. The heating system is controlled over the internet and I can easilly give extra heat if requested. It would normally take less than 2 minutes to do. We are very happy that the guest enjoyed their stay.

Haus in Granada

  • 2 of 5

Leider ist die Einrichtung des Hauses etwas in die Jahre gekommen, uns hat der Charme gefehlt.

Auch mit der Sauberkeit waren wir nicht optimal zu frieden, im Badezimmer war es sehr dunkel, da nur 1 von 4 Glühbirnen funktioniert hat.

Die Lage ist zentral, am Wochenende jedoch etwas laut, da viele Menschen vor dem Haus durchgehen.

Das Haus ist für einen Kurztrip empfehlenswert, länger würden wir dort jedoch nicht wohnen wollen.

schönes Haus im Albaicin

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt mitten im Albaicin, dem schönen alten Stadtviertel Granadas.

Es ist ideal zum Erkunden der Stadt. Die Einrichtung ist praktisch, wenn auch nicht neuwertig. Lagebedingt hat man Geräusche von der Straße, ist aber dafür mitten in der Stadt. Und da ist das nun mal nicht zu vermeiden. Auf der Terrasse hat man eine schönen Blick auf das Gässchen und die gegenüberliegende Stadtmauer. Für körperlich etwas gehandikapte Leute ist zu berücksichtigen, dass die Wohnung sich über 2 Etagen erstreckt und auch der Weg ins Bad und zurück Treppensteigen beinhaltet. Bei Anreise mit dem Auto hat man das Problem des Parkens. Nur mit viel Glück findet man in der Straße einen Platz. Direkt vor dem Haus ist ein Behindertenparkplatz, der meistens frei ist und zur An/Abreise genutzt werden kann. Das Haus ist mit ganz wenigen Abstrichen sehr empfehlenswert. Ich würde es jederzeit wieder buchen.

Estancia ideal.

  • 5 of 5

Ha estado muy bien. La casa es muy bonita y todo perfecto. La zona ya la conocíamos y sabíamos que es de encanto y la recomendamos.

Si vuelvo a ir me gustaría repetir en la casa y cenar alguna noche en la terraza....aunque en granada se sabe que las tapas en los bares son estupendas
