Guestbook comments from the owner

'Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Gaucin. We enjoyed every minute of it. The house was perfect, the sun was shining and the white village treated us so well. We will return.' Vår Staude, Norway 2014

'We have just returned from an idyllic week in Gaucin. We had to let you know how much we loved Casa Mihrab. From the moment that we arrived and received a warm welcome from Esther and Brett we settled into the lovely, relaxed way of life that the house and village afford anyone staying there. The views from the top floor were to die for and we have returned both recharged and refreshed having walked for miles in the surrounding hills, just perfect.' Len+Teresa, UK 2013

The house is delightful, fully matching the promise of the website. It is characterful and spacious within and, of course, the views from the terraces are wondeful. Alan + Elaine UK 2012

Cosy little home from home .

  • 5 of 5

Recently stayed in Casa Mihrab a delightful house set in a small quaint Spanish village.The house exceeded our expectations ,everything you needed was on hand making it a home from home.The house was immaculate,spacious and delightful.The spectacular views from the terrace can only be described as breathtaking .

The village of Gaucin although small is full of character and friendly and offers a good choice of places to eat out. It also provides a good base if you need to travel to other areas of interest.

We should like to thank Brett & Esther for their warm and informative welcome.Lastly a big thank you to Jennie & Mark for all your help and information .We would not hesitate to stay again in Casa Mihrab again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to give our home and Gaucin such a great review. The amazing expansive views were the first thing that made us fall in love with Gaucin. Our majestic mountains, Crestellina and El Hacho coupled with the ability to see Gibraltar and the Riff mountains in Morocco down the Genal valley presents a beautiful unspoilt vista which alters through the seasons and never fails to impress, drawing you back to the timeless beauty of nature.We hope you come back to enjoy it again soon. Best regards Jennie and Mark

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We find the pace of life in Gaucin and the wonderful open views immediately relaxing. Once there you can easily meet all your daily needs by pottering around the village which is for us a joy. We have taken time to create a comfortable home from home for ourselves and we are so pleased you felt that as a guest. Best wishes Jennie and Mark

We loved the village of Gaucin and this house!

  • 5 of 5

The previous reviews are accurate....the house is spacious, nicely furnished, a perfect place to relax and read after touring or hiking. I can't say enough for the views from the terrace....breathtaking. As we sat out the first night, gazing at the stars, we could hear goats or sheep in the hills around us. Linens are excellent quality and the house was spotless. Fun little resturants and bars around the town. This is a get away from it all kind of place. We loved it.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for a great review. Gaucin and the house are a haven for us to relax and restore too. The big open views are truly inspirational and the fact you just have to potter out to bars and restaurants without driving adds to our enjoyment. We hope you will return. Best regards Jennie and Mark.

Beautiful property with epic views

  • 4 of 5

I was so happy to have such a nice house to myself for the week. The kitchen is fully fitted and modern and the bathrooms are up to date. It's truly a great deal for one or two people wanting to get away from the tourist hoardes of the coast. It's central and parking is just up the street. The neighbours all said hello and were friendly. The views from the roof terrace are worth the price of admission alone!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It was the village that we both fell in love with first; the relaxed way of life, friendly people and of course the stunning location. We couldn't believe the astonishing views from the house and its location which were the main reasons we bought it. It never fails to revive and restore us when we stay and we hope it does the same for our guests.

Lovely character property in village of Gaucin

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Casa Mihrab. Wonderful location and the house is very well equipped. Top lounge is very comfortable with stunning views and a very nice terrace to sit out on. Went on 2 hikes with Paul who is very knowledgeable on the area and plants and birds. Favourite restaurants were El Atico. Fantastic food and views to match. Also enjoyed La Fructosa. Very welcoming, fabulous food, would have loved to sit on the terrace but unfortunately too cold. Would recommend casa mihrab and many thanks to Esther and Brett the welcoming housekeepers. We hope to be back next year.

Lovely home from home in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Casa Mihrab. The house exceeded our expectations - it was bigger than we expected and really well equipped with everything we could need for a week away. UK TV was a nice touch and the wifi worked perfectly too. The beds were comfortable and everything was spotless. The views are stunning and the top terrace is the perfect place to watch the sun go down. There was some noise from the road out the front but not enough to bother us. Gaucin, when we were there, was very quiet and quite a lot was shut up for the season, but still an attractive town and in a lovely area for walking. Note that if you arrive on a Sunday you will struggle to buy food until the next day!
