Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time at the cottage. The info on the website is accurate and helpful and we received a warm welcome. The meet and greet facility at the airport made our experience of Spain pleasant and enjoyable. The cottage is beautifully furnished and with all the facilites required for a comfortable and peaceful time. Set in beautiful surroundings. Warm air scented with orange flowers nearby, which brought happy childhood memories. Vera and Mojacar beaches are fantastic. Sally and David were perfect hosts and have been thoughtful in creating the perfect getaway. Thanks for a fantastic relaxing 2 weeks.-------Wonderful! Perfect location, will not be staying anywhere else when visiting Spain on future planned trips. ......Stay far exceed our expectations, nicest place we have ever stayed, would certainly recommend.

Peaceful and relaxing

Relaxation and peace
This was the most relaxing holiday we have had. Being picked up at the airport was fantastic and took out the hassle that usually starts a villa holiday! The cottages are so peaceful and having Sally quickly pop her head in to check all was ok was perfect. We will be returning.
Perfect relaxing break
We enjoyed a wonderful relaxing break at Casa Jardine, we could not fault Sally and the accommodation.
We were collected from the airport and chauffered to the cottage in the hire car that Sally had arranged for us, we never had to worry about a thing.
The cottages were spotless and provided all the essentials we needed for our stay from all the kitchen appliances to free SKY channels on the TV and a wide assortment of books.
We would have rated the cottages with 5 stars if they were air conditioned, the fans did help a bit with the hot nights but were a little bit noisy.
The cottage is very spacious for 2 people and the grounds are well kept with olive trees and a pool.
We hired a car through Sally which is essential to get around and was very reasonably priced.
We would highly recommend to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing break that this is the place, we will certainly be returning soon.
My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Jardine. The property was in immaculate condition and very well equipped.
As we did alot of travelling during our stay in Almeria, it was always pleasant to return to the property after a long and dusty day.
During the days we spent lazing around the property, the pool was just perfect for cooling off when the temperatures soared.
The surrounding orchard even provided figs and oranges which was a pleasant addition.
Vera, the nearest town, is a 5 minute drive away and is not walkable. This was the only slight downside we found, as we usually enjoy walking out for dinner in the evening. That said, it was very pleasant to dine in the property and added to the relaxation of our holiday.
The wooden shutters are an attractive and essential feature in keeping the heat out - it was nice to shave in the morning with the wooden shutters opening onto the orchard and the Sierra beyond.
A thoughtful and useful feature is the net mesh across the windows allowing you to have them open without worrying about any nasties flying in.
A lovely and relaxing cottage.
we wanted quiet holiday just to relax and, thats exactly what we got! can't praise this accomodation enough. it was a home from home as far as what was provided within the accomodation. With discreet but very helpful hosts. Within a central location if you want to get out and about. Hasa la vista!
From the Owner
“Buying our home in Vera was an easy choice having had a holiday home in Mojacar for some years. The area is ideally situated with access to the nearby beaches or a peaceful drive into the mountains, whichever takes our fancy. We love the site of our home with the surrounding views and felt that others would also enjoy staying here as well, as the area offers a diverse range of lovely places to visit.”

- Notes on accommodation: We have through our own experience of renting on our trips away, have tried to create what we would wish to find in our perfect holiday home. With this in mind we feel that with the rural aspect, within easy reach of all amenities and close to beaches, together with the spacious accommodation, this is what we feel we have achieved. Together with the large gardens providing privacy and peace and quiet, the cottages are ideally suited for both young and more mature couples. 4 mountain bikes are supplied with free use for our guests if feeling energetic! ! Sorry! We do not allow pets to stay in the cottages. Outside: The cottages are set in private gardens amongst olive and fruit trees. There are 2 large covered terraces, and a large patio area around the pool with sun loungers. Tables and chairs are on the terraces, perfect for dining outside. Barbecues are also provided and several seating areas are dotted around the gardens
