What makes this house unique

This lovely house has the best, broad views of the Alhambra Palace in the historic quarter, lots of space, and features drive-up access, a rare quality in this ancient neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a very special, unusual house with gorgeous views of the Alhambra and the Albaicin. It's very private and spacious and tastefully decorated. Charles answers emails quickly. I had a wonderful stay!

Albayzin romantico!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Granada several times, we were delighted to find this beautiful, spacious house in the Albaicín. With stunning views from the two terraces and the bedroom it was an totally enchanting place. The house has everything you might need with a huge kitchen and relaxing lounge. Just 10 minutes walk from town centre, and in the midst of the historic village, the location was perfect. We will definitely want to stay here again when we are next visiting Granada.

Location, romantic, and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Our 6-night stay was perfection. The house is much larger than we thought it would be, with tons of indoor and outdoor space. We have stayed in the Albayzin before, and this rental was far superior, not at all cramped. Everything was sparkling, and the person who let us in was right on time, meeting us at the door. The location is perfect for exploring the UNESCO Heritage Site. We walked to a flamenco show one night, and walked to the Alhambra in about 1/2 hour. Bars and restaurants are nearby. The master bedroom is almost too big, with a very comfortable bed and fantastic bathroom finished in black stone. There are views othe Alhambra from everywhere!

Incomparable for the price

  • 5 of 5

We looked at a lot of Albaicin rentals before choosing this one, and were not disappointed. Most rentals are tinty and hard to acess; by contrast this place was bursting with space, especially the bedroom and the kitchen. Very tastefuly decorated. We loved the terraces with views of the Alhambra that take your breath away!

Excellent house rental in authentic Granada

  • 5 of 5

This house in the upper Albayzin has everything you could want--Alhambra views, terraces, and loads of space. We could walk to local bars and shops quite easily, and even walked to the Alhambra Palace entrance in about 25 minutes. You can drive up to the rental, which really helped for unloading our bags without hassle. The bedroom is amazing, with wonderful balconies and a private rooftop terrace.

Perfect location, fantastic views, and tons of space!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Granada is a wonderful city, and the historic Albaicin is a perfect place. We stayed for 7 nights in this wonderful rental with a huge front terrace, and another wonderful terrace above the gigantic master bedroom. Both have great views of the Alhambra. The kitchen is huge, and the living room very comfortable. Comparing this rental with others in the area, what really stood out was the amount of space and comfort on offer!

Tolle Lage und Aussicht, aber unsauber

  • 3 of 5

Wir stimmen den anderen, sehr positiven Bewertungen hinsichtlich Größe und Lage des Hauses zu, besonders schön fanden wir die Bäder und die Dachterrasse. Aber ansonsten waren wir ziemlich enttäuscht: Im Flur zwischen Wohnzimmer und Küche roch es intensiv nach einer hoffentlich nicht giftigen Chemikalie, was keine Gemütlichkeit aufkommen ließ, weil Wohnzimmer und Schlafzimmer keine Flurtür haben. In den Nachtischlampen steckten hässlich aus dem Schirm herausragende Stromsparbirnen unterschiedlicher Helligkeit und auch die beiden Spiegellampen im oberen Bad waren unterschiedlich hell. Auf den Arbeitsplatten der (riesigen) Küche waren viele alte Fettspritzer und es gab nur zwei kleine Kochtöpfe. Die Beine der Wohnzimmerstühle wackelten, der Fernseher funktionierte nicht, die Kamine waren voll Asche und angebrannter Holzreste, ihre Scheiben waren verrußt, der Duschvorhang im oberen Bad war total kalkig, hinter dem Waschbecken steckte eine alte Rasierklinge, viele Fensterscheiben waren dreckig ...

Die Wohnung könnte sehr behaglich sein - schade. Sie wirkt, als sei sie vor einigen Jahren liebevoll renoviert worden und würde jetzt nur noch lieblos unterhalten.
