About The Owner

Hi, my name is Berna, I live in Ireland with my husband Charly, we both love Spain and speak the language. We spent 3 years searching for our ideal home in the sun and we bought villa Cuba Libre in 2006.

Our favourite city in Spain is Seville and we visit every year usually for the Feria in April, to visit the sights and to eat Tapas. We also go to the Feria of Horses in Jerez in May.

We love to spend time in Cuba Libre as it offers total relaxation.

We are very active and love to walk, cycle in the area and to swim on La Barrosa Beach.

We go to the market of Chiclana and buy fresh locally grown vegetables, fresh fish and meat for the BBQ.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

Why The Owner chose Costa de la Luz - Cadiz

We bought the villa which we named after our favourite drink, Cuba Libre (ingredients are: Cacique rum, Coca Cola, drops of Angostura Bitters, juice of half a lime and ice). We added a pool and patio garden with a built in BBQ.

This year we put in a Wood Burner which adds warmth and cosiness to the villa during the winter.

It is in the perfect location to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and relax at the same time. Chiclana is only 5 minutes drive away. Easy access to Seville, Cadiz, Jerez and Malaga.

The village of Pago Del Humo has a great range of bars/restaurants serving authentic food at very reasonable prices. It has a pharmacy, mini supermarket with daily fresh hot baked bread.

What makes this villa unique

Cuba Libre is convenient to a magnificent coastline that stretches for miles with golden sand and promenades, the beaches are never crowded and you have the choice of the more commercial or the tranquil stretches of unspoilt coast. The nearest beach is La Barrosa about 10 minutes by car. Water sports are popular here Trafalgar Surf, in Conil can offer you lessons, equipment hire and general help on where to go for the best surf.

This relatively unspoilt area is where the Spanish choose to take their holidays.

We supply beach towels, umbrellas and a set of golf clubs so visitors can travel light.

There are two bicycles available to rent at very reasonable rate to explore the countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Berna,

I just wanted to say thank you once again for the use of your brilliant villa. We had the best time. Everything went really well and the sun shone for us. The boys still love the pool and pass hours happily jumping in and out. Joseph and I love the peace and quite and the privacy and the comfort !!! The wifi is simply the icing on the cake.

So once again sincere thanks, we had a ball.Sonia and Joseph Callaghan

Hi Berna

Just a quick message to say Thank You. We are just back from your beautiful villa. We had a brilliant time all went so well. The wifi was a great new addition, thank you. The weather didn't disappoint and we missed the terrible weather here so it was all good. Hazel was once again a god send when we tripped the switch and had no water ! One quick phone call and all was restored.

I know you must be aware of it yourself but it really is a slice of heaven.

So once again Thank You. Regards. Sonia, Joe and boys (June 2012)

Enjoyable stay in a very untouristy location

  • 4 of 5

We had 11 nights in a well equipped villa with a very pleasant outside space including a pool, lounging area and barbecue.

There are a few issues when trying to manouvre the car due to limited turning space and the proximity of the neighbours gate resulting in a 6 point turn to get out of the parking space! We were also a little miffed to having to pay an extra €30 for the wifi, would it not be better to include it in the daily rate? That said, the starter pack was very welcome as we arrived very late on the first day and we did really enjoy our short stay in the villa that was very well located for Cadiz, Jerez and many beaches.

Perfectly located Holiday Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and found the place to be clean, bright and very sheltered away from the hustle and bustle but close to local beaches, restaurants and cafes only 10-15min drive to Conil & Playa La Barrosa. The pool was definitely a highlight of the property. we enjoyed many days out on the patio enjoying the sunshine and BBQ's. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Cuba Libre - the villa is very well equipped and the setting is really peaceful. The pool is great - especially at the end of a hot sightseeing day. There are many beautiful beaches in the area as well as some great places to visit - Vejer, Tarifa, Cadiz. We really enjoyed our holiday there and highly recommend the villa.

It was our first time (a) in Spain and (b) staying in a villa and I can honestly say Cuba Libre surpassed all our expectations. The villa is very well equipped (we were especially grateful for the air conditioning in the evenings!) and the pool is amazing and totally private. Berna (the owner) was extremely helpful and always responded quickly to emails. We had a problem with the wifi during our stay and between Berna and Leigh (the agent in Spain) it was sorted immediately. We have so many wonderful memories and are already planning our return visit.

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Great place to explore area, we played lots of golf, plenty of choice of courses and can do deals for ten games. Spent four weeks in Villa, Leigh the lady who looks after it was very helpful and gave a lot of tips where to shop etc in the area and is on the phone if you need her she is English so no problem with language.

Everything a short drive away, could walk to local bar restaurant but Villa is on unlit dirt road so drove instead. Pool was not heated but still we went in and it was March. Villa has all you need as per speck and the owner really helpful and responds to emails very quickly.
