About Isabel Dalton

I am from the north of Spain, but have lived for almost 30 years in London with my English husband.

Living in the UK the thing I miss most is the sun, particularly in winter. We have bought the house with a view to spending a lot of time here on retirement, but unfortunately that day has not yet arrived. We hope you love the house and area as much as we do.

Isabel Dalton purchased this house in 2011

Why Isabel Dalton chose Ronda area

We were attracted to the area by the beautiful countryside and by the winter sun. Although Ronda is close to the coast it still has a very Spanish feel and there is a sense of space and tranquility in the area.

At first we looked outside town, but when we found this house we felt it offered the best of both worlds, having a pool, great views, immediate access to the countryside plus all the convenience of town. A 3 minute walk in one direction and you are in the main shopping street, and 3 minutes in the other direction you are in open countryside.

We want to visit a lot in the winter months when it gets cold at night so the log-fire and underfloor heating were a real attraction (many local properties are not well heated).

What makes this house unique

Perfect location.

Great outdoor space with swimming pool.

Sauna.

Large garage (parking can be difficult in Ronda like many Spanish towns).

Guestbook comments from the owner

1) "I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say that we have an absolutely wonderful time staing in your house in Ronda -- it exceeded our expectations and is the best location we have had in all our years of coming to Ronda."

2) "we loved your house here in Ronda. We will recommend to others",

3) "it’s a very fine, tastefully and well equipped house, we like to come

back for, and we´ll recommend it for our travelling friends."

4) "All in all it was a wonderful time and one of the best weeks of my life. I have a feeling that I’ll be returning before too long and I’ll certainly be in touch about future rentals."

Location was great though a bit hard to find the first time. Lovely large house, very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We were 2 couples sharing and we were pleasantly surprised by how close it was to the most lively shopping and restaurant streets and how close to the famous gorge and the walks both below the bridges and above where the famous bull ring/museum can be visited - and yet the street was quiet and residential. The house has plenty of room to spread out and the walled pool patio was a pleasure to relax in. There was a washer AND dryer for quick travel laundry needs and, though many travel with mobile music, it was nice to have a CD player with lovely Spanish guitarists to listen to while relaxing with a pre-dinner drink.

Once you know how, it is surprisingly easy to find your way to the main highways in and out of town. Ronda itself is even more charming than we expected.

House in residential part of Ronda near town.

  • 4 of 5

We mostly enjoyed our stay here although I would mention a few issues:

1. We were met by a man that showed us into the house but very little else. He wasn't the usual person who did this so perhaps he didn't know how to show us.

2. We were only given one set of keys to the house. Given that this was a 4 bedroom house, that seemed strange. We were two couples and when we split up during the day we had to coordinate to make sure someone with the key was home - not convenient.

3. Corner on the stove hood is very sharp - should have a warning. Three of the four of us hurt ourselves on it.

4. Be warned that there are very steep steps to the main part of town from the house. We managed by taking our time but if you have any walking issues it would be a big problem.

Ronda is a pretty town and the surrounding countryside is just beautiful.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay, but sorry that you had a couple of issues. The person meeting you was not the normal one, so he may have explained less than normal; please accept my apologies. A 2nd set of keys is normally available on request; again sorry if you were not given one. We will cover the corners of the cooker hood with something protective. Kind regards Isabel

Ideal house

  • 5 of 5

The house was ideal for our family of 4 couples with a 11 month old. The underfloor heating and sauna were an extra bonus.

Very good location to old Town and new and also easy access to large supermarket and road to north Ronda and south. Car parking in garage ok but tight, but large parking below in square. The information at house was good and helpful..

The perfect holiday home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We found this property easy to book and the owner was very helpful, our contact in Ronda was easy to get in touch with and on arrival was at the house to meet us, show us round and pass on the keys.

The house is situated on the edge of the old part of town, walking up or down the street brings you to all the tourist sights, up the steps at the top of the street above the house you will arrive on a long street where you will find a large supermarket, butchers, fruit shops, chemists etc and if you continue further you will come to the bus station and off to the right the train station. You can walk to most places in 10 - 15 minutes so a car is not necessary. Ronda has an excellent train and bus service so you can easily visit other towns and be in Seville in about 1 3/4 hours.

The house is well maintained, nicely furnished and cleaned to a high standard, you will find everything you need to make your stay comfortable. The house stays really cool if the shutters are left closed which is just what you need on a hot summers day.

The outside space at the back of the property is very private with high walls. It gets the sun from lunch time through to early evening and if it gets too hot the shaded area has comfortable seating and a large table and chairs for alfresco dining. The BBQ is also ideal for the days when you don't want to cook indoors or eat out, wood is provided for this and can be found in the spacious garage below the house. We spent most of our time outside when we were not walking or sightseeing and we swam everyday in the pool which is a decent size. A local man does pop in from time to time to make sure the pool is serviced and kept clean.

We are keen walkers and all of the walks which we had planned in advance started from the Bario San Francisco part of the town which is located just the other side of the Almocabar Gate to the town. The walks are well signposted and offer stunning views of Ronda, the paths are bordered by beautiful wild flowers, butterflies and song birds were everywhere and we saw eagles and vultures soaring high above us.

There is so much to do and see in Ronda, the tourist information office opposite the bull ring has really helpful English speaking staff and they provided us with leaflets, maps and ideas for trips out.

Eating out is a great experience as there are so many Tapas Bars, Restaurants and Hotels with panoramic views. There are prices to suit every budget.

We can certainly recommend this lovely property.

Charming house!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful Spanish style house with lots of charm! Centrally located and an easy walk to all sorts of eating places, shopping, and sights, we greatly enjoyed our 5 nights here. The bedrooms are comfortable, the apartment was clean, fully equipped, and beautifully decorated. It was a bit chilly to use the pool but we did enjoy the courtyard and the comfortable furniture out there. Contact with Isabel was easy, and she quickly responded to every question I had. We used Ronda as a base for touring some of the Pueblo Blancos, and found that we enjoyed our time in Ronda so much, that we stayed in town at the house more than we had planned!! The only glitch was that using the attached garage became a problem when neighbors were constantly parked in driveway or in front on street (street is VERY narrow and steep). It was easier to park down the street and walk to house.....the only way we could be insured of getting out!! No big deal...we did love our stay here and highly recommend this lovely place!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review; I am so glad you enjoyed the stay. I will speak to the neighbours about the parking issue; I believe that they are normally considerate, but local visitors and tradesmen can be indisciplined about parking. Apologies for any inconvenience. Isabel
