Lovely stay in Tarifa

  • 5 of 5

We are a Dutch couple that stayed in chalet dos for two weeks. We had a great time. The park was restful and we had lots of privacy. The chalet was well equiped, so that we cooked every evening in the outdoor kitchen. We had sunbeds and beach towels. The beach was a ten minutes walk. In the evening we cooled down in the quiet little pool. If you want rest and quiet, this is the place to be. We will come back!

Fabulous Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great Escapes was our first time as a family holiday away from a hotel environment. We booked three chalets together for me and my wife, my teenage daughters and my parents.

My parents loved chalet dos as it was open plan and airy and easily accessible from its garden area. Its outside terrace afforded us all a lovely area to sit and eat together and enjoy the beauty of the grounds and the sounds and sights of nature all around us.

Brian the owner, has created a remarkable place to totally unwind and get away from noise, traffic and all the everyday stresses of modern living.

wonderful time in chalet dos

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the chalet Dos. Jenny and Brian are greatly hosts. Everything was perfect. We had an excellent view on the cost of Marocco.

This calm and quiet area was a really great adventure. Bying the fresh fish in the market and preparing it on the gas- barbecue in front of the chalet is a pleasure.

We recomment the visit to anybody. Dear Jenny an Brian: Thank you for this wonderful time. We will visit this lovely place certainly.

La quiétude de Great Escapes

  • 5 of 5

On garde un merveilleux souvenir de notre voyage à TARIFA. La quiétude de « Great Escapes », un berceau de tranquillité dans un jardin typique andalous entretenu d’une main de maître par Brian avec tous ces petits messages « zen » ; on a été bercé dans un univers de calme et de sérénité ; cette lumière, la chaleur, les images, l’air d’Andalousie et le ressac de l’océan. On a la tête remplie de moments magnifiques : la concentration des cigognes avant l’envol de la migration vers l’Afrique ; les vautours qui planent le matin au dessus de la falaise, les meuglements des vaches quand elles recevaient le foin. Les patas negras et les chevaux qu’on a croisé sur le chemin.

Mille merci à Jenny et Brian pour l’accueil, leur gentillesse, leur disponibilité et leurs conseils. On va essayer de ne pas oublier trop vite cette lumière, la chaleur, les images, l’air d’Andalousie.

Renewed, Relaxed, and certain to return!

  • 5 of 5

The second week of our 2-week holiday in Spain was spent in Great Escapes. We did not know what to expect, as we had never stayed in a wooden chalet before.

We could see immediately that we were going to have a truly wonderful experience. The chalet was not only perfectly clean and extremely well-cared for, but was also equipped with plenty of homely comforts such as a book shelf of good holiday reads, constant hot water, very comfortable sun-beds, and more than sufficient supply of such things as toilet paper, washing-up liquid, and other basic kitchen supplies (oil, salt, etc). We were very impressed!

The site also had a wonderfully relaxing small swimming pool with shower which was a great luxury after hours spent enjoying the local beach. It was a lovely way to relax and cool down.

Brian and Jenny were the perfect hosts, attentive, full of local knowledge, freely giving tips on where to park, shop and dine, but also giving one space and privacy, thus allowing guests to completely unwind. Unlike our previous week, which had been more expensive, Brian and Jenny obviously take pride and pleasure in their work, and continue to ensure that their accommodation is of a very high quality.Guests enjoy the benefit of their generous spirit.

At the end of our week in Great Escapes we felt renewed, relaxed, and certain that we would return!

It is a perfect spot for exploring the rest of the Costa de la Luz (The Coast of Light) which offers unspoilt beauty and spectacular sunsets.

  • Chalet Dos is completely independent of chalet uno, tres, cuatro and Moments. The grounds are so designed so that guests have plenty of space and privacy. The outdoor pool is shared by the chalets but the beauty of the beaches means it's rare all the chalets want to use the pool at the same time. PLEASE NOTE the facilities at Great Escapes are for the use of guests only As we have 5 chalets, visitors to the chalets are not allowed in order to prevent noise disturbance for our other guests. We also value the security and well being of all our guests at all times and therefore do not allow casual visitors to chalets.
