About the property

Spacious 5 bedroom villa with big terrace.

Casa Buganvilla is a lovely spacious house with a big living room and pleasant terrace. The living room has two very cosy sofas, and a TV set, it has air conditioning. There is one dining table inside and another one outside. There is a large attractive mature garden, with different areas for some relaxing time, in one of the corners of the garden there is a quite large fireplace for BBQ. It has five large bedrooms, one with one bunk bed and one single bed, two with two single beds, and two with double beds. Very spacious kitchen with all the equipment that you might need. It is very well located, as it is in a quiet street with plenty of parking, just 150 yrds from the beach and village centre.

Activities: In the summer months the park organises children's workshops and open air cinema. There is live music or theatre nearly every night in some of the nearby villages. We publish a calendar of events and are happy to make bookings for you.

There are several driveable tracks to do out of the village, towards the beaches, Mónsul and Genoveses,

This is a cycling and hiking paradise although not perhaps at the height of summer.

Beaches: There are over 20 beaches and coves within the park in easy driving distance and the majority are unspoilt with no hotels or construction of any type. Los Muertos, El Playazo, and, of course the nearby Genoves and Monsul, are unmissable.

One of the few Mediterranean marine reserves, the snorkelling and diving is quite stunning. There are several dive outfits in the park, some of them are in San José. We can arrange single try out dives or longer courses.

There are kayaks and bicycles for hire and kayak tours are available in the summer months.

About Simon

Simon and I, Dolo, came to live in Rodalquilar in 2011 with our two children, Laura and Pau.

We have always been in contact with the area, as I have family from Níjar. We both used to come here for our relaxing holidays and it’s always been a paradise for us.

Rodalquilar is a great village and we feel very happy here, as there are lovely people living. It’s small but with enough bars and restaurants and the odd shop or two. It has a relaxed laid back family atmosphere - a long way from the ‘Costas’.

We manage houses in different villages of the Natural Park and we think each village has it’s own advantages, depending on what you want for your holidays. If you are not sure where to go, just ask us and we can help you with it.

Cabo de Gata is a really stunning area with many different possibilities. It is a great place to enjoy nature and do lots of different activities around it: from trekking to trips on boats, as well as surfing, kayaking, doing geological walks, exploring the mines, watching birds . Lots of different activities that can be enjoyed all year round due to the wonderful weather.

We always try to keep our houses to a high standard, clean, well provided and we are always willing to help our guests with whatever is related to their enjoyment of their holidays.

Casa grande, muy bien situada

  • 4 of 5

Estuvimos nueve personas en Semana Santa y lo pasamos realmente bien. La casa es amplia y cómoda, y tiene dos terrazas, una a la misma altura del resto de las habitaciones y otra arriba, impresionante. Está situada muy cerca (andando a 5 minutos) del centro de San José y la playa, por lo que no es necesario coger el coche para nada si no quieres. La situación de San José es perfecta para hacer excursiones y ver todo el parque natural, las playas salvajes, el desierto de Tabernas y Sorbas, la ciudad de Almería y todos los pueblos tan lindos de los alrededores. Dolo nos trató muy bien, e incluso nos compró una cafetera nueva ya que la que había era muy pequeña para todos.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa for 2 weeks in September to celebrate my 40th with friends and family. It was my first time to Cabo De Gata and with 12 people coming out to spend their holiday to celebrate with me, I felt a little anxious about the villa and the area but as soon as I arrived I felt at home. The villa is lovely and Dolores even lovelier and so helpful throughout our stay. She was always at the end of a text providing recommendations on the best place to buy fish, etc (even tobacco!). The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The terrace was the perfect spot to enjoy the views. We ended up spending more time sitting on the terrace than sightseeing! The location of the villa was perfect as we didn't want to rely on driving around. Only a couple minutes stroll down the road and you're in the heart of San Jose which was a perfect haven. It had everything we needed for a two week stay and everyone so nice and welcoming. The lack of foreign tourists was just what we were after…the true Spanish experience.

We had a wonderful break here. This is the perfect villa for a group of friends and families with children.

The house is very nice and well kept, with an amazing terrace where we enjoyed our breakfasts and dinners.

There's anything you need and the property is very well located in San Jose.

Dolores is the perfect hostess and you just feel welcomed.

Relax and peace is granted!

We would definitely go back there any time.

Una atención sobresaliente

  • 5 of 5

Al llegar a la casa, la propietaria se dio cuenta que el aire acondicionado no funcionaba, al otro dia llegaron cuatro operarios con un aire acondicionado nuevo.Dolores actuó de forma muy correcta. La casa una maravilla, cocina y salón muy amplio, las habitaciones bien distribuidas, y una terraza, que por las noches invita a tomarse un gin, en plena tranquilidad de San Jose, me gustaría volver otra vez.

The house is just 150yrds from a sandy family beach, in the charming fishing village, San Jose, in the National Park of Cabo de Gata. The views from the house are really wonderful, the terraces are large and make this an ideal spot to chill out.

The village has a wide range of services in general: a good selection of restaurants, bars and night spots. The house is in a quiet street with plenty of parking, and in a couple of minutes walk you are in the centre of the village or on the beach.

The area has many attractions, apart from its beautiful beaches. There are excellent golf courses nearby, and it has been the setting for many movies, from the Spaghetti Westerns, Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones, Lawrence of Arabia, and many others.

This is a wonderful area for snorkelling and scuba diving and there are are quite a few snorkelling centres with a lot of options for trips with them. We have had other tennents doing snorkelling and scuba diving with the and we have very good references.

Golf: Alborán Golf is a stunning coastal golf course an easy 30 minute drive through the park from the house. Located in a province that boasts the highest number of daylight hours in all Europe along with the lowest rainfall, this is a perfect golfing location.
