About Amanda Cooke

I am a painter/designer.

Amanda Cooke purchased this house in 2006

Why Amanda Cooke chose Nuevo Portil

Over the years, I have rented quite a few holiday homes and more often than not, have been disappointed with either the standard or its location. As we all work hard throughout the year, our vacations are important and for these reasons I have ensured Sunflowers is of a very high standard and I have also selected its location very carefully.

What makes this house unique

On arrival, you will be greeted by my housekeeper who will hand over the keys and show you around Sunflowers. You will have her contact details should you need anything during your stay.

I also have a website with more information and photographs:

Beautiful area, very Spanish which is what we wanted. Very close to the beach and other amenities (fabulous cafes along the beach!!!). The house was spotless and very tidy when we arrived, we could not have hoped for more!

Need a car to visit other areas (although I am told there is a bus but not very often) which was not a problem for us at all, surrounding areas are fabulous with great shops in Huelva, although a bit of a long drive but totally worth it!!

All in all we had an amazing stay and would definately return soon!!

Great quality accomodation, in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice at Sunflowers in July with our toddler and loved it. The house is well furnished, with quality bedding, the decor is exactly like on the pictures, the house is comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the housing complex high quality. It has an underground garage and the pool is very well maintained and has a lifeguard (Spanish regulations).

We were met upon arrival by Amanda's rep locally and everything went seamlessly both times. we found the house upon arrival very clean.

Nuevo portil is located in a pretty untouched area of Spain, with plenty of restaurants and shops nearby and the beaches are wonderful.

The fact that the house has Wifi is a definite bonus and it also has a good stock of DVD and English books.

The terrace is great for having lunch and dinner. A great accommodation at a good price.

A very good family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well fitted and furnished holiday rental on 3 floors.A lot of thought and taste has gone into the house and it works very well.The efficient aircon was brilliant in our "high season stay".

Patios were well shaded if needed and well used.The garden access to the pool area,and the pools themselves were tremendous,particularly for the 2 small children in our party.

The information folder and local maps were great.The owner could not have been more helpful.

The area is great and very Spanish. Fish is definitely on the menu.

Golf courses here and at Rompido were good but overwatered and only open at 8-8.30.

Visit highlights were; the beach;Ayamonte;Seville;and La Rabida.

I would strongly recommend the villa and area.

Wonderful villa in a lovely part of Spain but !

  • 2 of 5

We rented this villa for a week with friends and family and children. The villa is in wonderful condition and has everything that one requires when staying in a self contained villa. Everything seems to of been thought of in great detail down to the supply of books and dvd's. This part of Spain is very Spanish and is good if you wish to get an idea of how the Spanish live. I would say that the food was not very good unless you absolutely love seafood and don’t mind eating it for lunch and dinner for the duration of your stay. Overall I would say that I would definitely visit that part of Spain again and if you really want to visit or even stay somewhere quite charming then visit a place called Ayamonte which is about 45 mins drive away and very easy to find travelling by car.

Our only one issue was the problems we had in getting our security deposit back, which took over a month, along with a lot of communication between ourselves and the owner, only to then receive it and find that money had been deducted and no reason giving. Due to the reason above I personally would not recommend friends to this particular accommodation, however, the location is a definite.

Owner's Response: It did take longer than usual to pay back the security deposit. Unfortunately the renter failed to add in this review that she took the main security lock key and the back door gate key back to UK! Plus I was not informed of this until 4/5 days later and not by her but by someone in Espana who had seen my property open. I called the renter immediately who admitted she had these keys in her handbag. I am not sure why she did not contact me myself. My property had been left unsecure for 4/5 days. I made arrangements for new locks/keys which cost well over 65 Euros plus I had to pay someone in Espana to do this for me. I woud like to add that the renter insisted on paying the security deposit by cheque a couple of days before arrival as she was having problems with her bank. I also gave this renter a good discounted rate on the normal rental price. So after she had returned my keys I posted her security deposit RECORDED DELIVERY to the address she gave me. She called a few days later to inform me she had not received it. I tracked and then called the Post Office to be told someone had signed for it! Obviously I was very concerned. First of all, my security keys had been taken back to UK and property left unsecure. Then I was told by Post Office someone had signed for the recorded delivery cheque BUT the renter was telling me she had not signed for it! I established the cheque had not been cashed, then stopped the cheque and made a bank transfer to the renters bank as requested. I charge £250 security deposit and returned £225...only deducting £25 for the replacements locks/keys. It should have been over 65 Euros. I am disappointed this renter has not told the full story of why her deposit refund was delayed. She was also offered receipts to show I was well out of pocket. I should have charged her the full amount ie 65Euros + man power but wanted closure on this so charged a small amount of £25 which I feel was more than reasonable.

Sunflowers is very well maintained and very clean.

The interior of the house is beautifully furnished to a very high standard with first class appliances with a well fitted kitchen.

The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels provided, even a huge beach towel each.

This property is exactly as advertised, probably better. It certainly shone out from anything else. I would go as far to say as it is the best holiday rental I've stayed in ever.

The owner had a fantastic information book in the property giving us plenty of ideas of where to eat, where to go etc. Also emergency and useful numbers which was a great help.

The restaurants in this area's are slightly more expensive than other Costa's but you get what you pay for and the food was excellent and the service too.

The whole area reminded us of what Spain used to be 30 years ago. Take a Spanish phrase book with you! No, don’t. The owner had even provided a phrase book and plenty of local maps too.

We didn’t have a wet day but there were also plenty of dvd's, books and indoor games available.

The beach was about a 10 minute walk and beautiful.

The swimming pools were sparkling.

We didn’t want to leave Sunflowers and will certainly be returning.

Nuevo Portil
Car: recommended

Huelva (the closest city to NP) has excellent shopping facilities and claims to be the “Flamenco Capital” with many of the buildings dating back to the 15th century.

South of Huelva is Matalascañas which is packed with local restaurants and a beautiful long sandy beach. Close by is the Donana National Park where you can see a huge variety of birds and Lynx, all amongst beautiful scenery, which includes marshlands, pine forests, sand dunes and freshwater lakes.

A city not to be missed is the beautiful and vibrant Seville which is approx a 40 minute drive from Huelva. It lies of the banks of the Guadalquivir River and is one of the largest historical centres in Europe.

West of Nuevo Portil is the pretty fishing village of El Rompido (5 minute drive) where you will find excellent beach restaurants serving tasty good value local and international cuisine.

A definite must is a visit to the border town of Ayamonte as it typifies the ambience and architecture of this area.

Other Activities: Water Park and Karting 10 minutes away
