About the property

Holiday Home in Almunecar, Costa Tropical of Granada, Spain - True Large Family House, Located On A Hill Overlooking The See, 15 Minutes Walking From The Beach

Villa overlooking the Mediterranean sea. Very sunny with large windows, decorated and equipped as a true family house. Ample outdoors facilities.

Fully air conditioned and ready to be used (bed linen, bath and beach towels and beach chairs are provided)

Large and sunny swimming pool, shared among 9 single houses, but seldom used.

Going by the pictures of the property, the main floor has a very spacious living room with wide windows over the Mediterranean (some are floor to ceiling windows), a bathroom and a large kitchen. On the upper level we find the Master Bedroom, with en-suite bathroom and a private sitting/reading area, two more bedrooms sharing an ample terrace over the sea, and a third bathroom. On the lower floor there is a very large bedroom with its own sitting and playing area, ideal for children (we have two portable cribs for additional babies).

The outside areas include a large porch with great sea views, a large and shaded BBQ area, a children play area next to the porch, a sun-bathing area and a garden. On the lower level there is a covered garage for one car.

You may notice that we have also included a picture of the outdoor children play area from the back porch, just to clearly convey the notion that the property is ideal for families with children: You can enjoy your time, while children safely play close to you, or play inside in their large bedroom with sitting and play areas.

Beach chairs are located at an auxiliary room on the right of the entrance gate (you have a picture of it among the property pictures), just at street level

The house is ideal for families or for friends sharing vacations together, but nor for bachelor parties or the like. You will be part of a very friendly community living in the area, and you will be expected to follow common sense and respectful attitudes.

About Jose Maria

We are a Spanish couple in our fifties, living in Madrid. We know the Granada area very well, since we were born the two of us in that beautiful town.

We enjoy going back to Granada from time to time, but we seldom manage to do so more than a couple of times during the year, and never for too long..

We wanted to have a house at the beach of Granada, at its most iconic town, Almunecar, large, full of light, with great views, the ideal spot for living there.... and this is the house you are renting. A true family house carefully selected to provide a very pleasant stay in town.

Jose Maria purchased this villa in 1999

Why Jose Maria chose Almuñécar

We are, my wife and me, from Granada, and we have known the area since we were small children. Naturally, we have a strong attachment for Almunecar, and we have spent years looking for an interesting property to have a house there.... we found it, finally, and we now propose you to share that property with us.

We were born in Granada, but we left this town in the early 80's. We now return there from time to time, but never for too long. This is the reason why we rent the house.

What makes this villa unique

Our house is on a hill over the sea, with more than 400 m2 and 150 m2 of construction. You will enjoy great views while having ample space around you in a fully air conditioned villa ready to be used (all bed linen, bath and beach towels as well as beach chairs are provided).

The living room is open to the sea, with a large seating area, a dining set and a fireplace. The large Master Bedroom enjoys a queen bed, great views, a reading area and a large bathroom. The second bedroom has its own large sitting area, ideal for young people to have their independence. There are two more bedrooms sharing a terrace. There are three bathrooms in total

The outdoor areas are very ample, including a children play area by large porch at the back and a shaded BBQ area

The house is 15 minutes walking from the beach

We share a very large and sunny swimming pool, seldon used.

The house is ideal for one or two families with children in summer, and for a couple for the winter

Mrs. Inger

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in the house from the end of january to the 7th february with my grandchildren just as last year. It is a wonderful place where you feel like home. Everything you need in the kichen is avaiable.

We should like to come back.

There was a problem with hot Water, you had to let the water run for a very long time and there was not enough.

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Inger, thank you very much for being a returning guest at our house in Almunnecar. This is the best publicity we can have. I am glad that you find the kitchen fully functional, and you are right that hot water takes some time to reach the upper bathrooms (we do specify that issue in the "Getting Started" welcome pack, but it could be better). It should be a problem of time, not of quantity. Still, and as you kow very well, the house is fully functionall because we use it ourselves during the year from time to time. Therefore, it is within our plans a complete remodeling of the en suite bathroom, providing it with an independant hot water source (not an easy fix, though)

Really enjoyable holiday

  • 5 of 5

For second year in a row, we chose Las Gaviotas for our family holiday in Almuñécar- family of 2 adults, 2 children and a dog. During the weekend we had relatives staying with us, we were 10 people in total. The house was even better than last year, as it now has air conditioning, which we used during the first days. During the last few days of our stay it was quite windy and we couldn´t go to the beach, but we didn´t mind, having such great views, the garden and the pool.The house is REALLY recommendable if you are looking for a place to relax and disconnect from routine . We will certainly have our family holiday in Las Gaviotas next year again !!

Owner's Response: It is always rewarding to have recurrent guests coming to the house (in fact, almost half of our guests return year after year to the house). Thank you for your confidence again this year. I am specially happy that you found interesting our recent addition of AC in all rooms. Besides being a concrete proof of our commitement to always improuve the house, I am sure AC is extremelly helpful is those special days in which the temperature just get too high Thank you again...JM

Fantastic house in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for a week with our children and their partners (8 persons in total). The house was up to our expectations and more. Clean, spacious, well-equipped and with a wonderful sea- view. We even spotted a group of dolphins from the terrace one morning.

The beach and a set of nice restaurants and small supermarkets are at walking distance. Town-centre is a bit far to walk, but if you don't mind a good climb on your way back, it is doable. Don't forget to go for an ice- cream at Jamaica Inn!

The surroundings - beach and mountains - provide stunning views, adorable towns and villages (e.g. Nerja, Frigiliana) and interesting places like Malaga and Granada.

Contacts surrounding the rental of the property were very friendly and adquate.

We would recommend the property to anyone!

Encantadora estancia con equipamiento ideal

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra estancia ha sido fantástica en todos los aspectos: las vistas de la terraza principal son increibles mirando al mar, la zona de jardín está perfectamente cuidada y la barbacoa es muy útil!! La casa está cuidada y tiene todo tipo de comodidades: aire acondicionado, camas cómodas, horno y placa de inducción. Los baños son amplios y luminosos.Es un barrio silencioso y muy limpio, con una vecindad tranquila y agradable. Sin duda repetiremos en nuestra próxima visita a la costa Tropical.

fantastic! spacious villa with great sea view in lovely part of Spain

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a real find - enough space for all six of us to relax easily, large pool and a short drive from any stuff you may need. The place is well equipped and clean and the owner friendly and provided some good tips for local dining. We had lovely days at various local beaches and towns, or at the pool (or both). Lots of great tapas and seafood out and some long meals straight off the bbq at the villa. The area is very nice and feels very 'spanish' with a cooling breeze to take the edge off the heat. I would definitely recommend this villa.

Nearest Airport
90 Kilometres
Nearest Ferry
15 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
1 Kilometres
Car: recommended

Almuñecar is full of bars and restaurants, from very simple ones to truly upscale choices like Calabajio.

Our house is on a hill overlooking the sea. For young people it is perfectly feasible to go and come back on foot (our children have always done so), while we, ourselves, we prefer to take the car to nearby parking areas (there are plenty surrounding the historical center of the town)
