Amazing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Returned last week after 2 glorious weeks at Casa Jose, didn't want to come home. The Villa and pool are fabulous, better than description, they were spotlessly clean and has every thing you could possibly need The location was just right for a perfect private get away.

We can't thank Sue enough she was a Fantastic host always on hand if we had any questions and made some great Tapas!!!!

Can't recommend this enough for a beautiful rural holiday.

Hopefully we will be back next year.

Owner's Response: Rachel and Dave Thanks for your lovely review. It is such a beautiful spot and so private.I know that you loved the views. It is so peaceful in the area and glad that I was only along the track if you had any questions that you needed answers to. There are so few places for 2 of that size to rent and really happy that you enjoyed your stay at the Villa. Hope to meet up again next year! And thanks for asking me to your place for a BBQ ! Best wishes Sue.

5 star we love it here

  • 5 of 5

This was not the first time we have visited the Casa and definitely will not be the last!

The house has everything we could possibly need for a relaxing, peaceful and tranquil holiday away from the hussle and bussle of London!

The Casa is always kept clean, and Sue and Ken are wonderful hosts who will do as much as they can to help you with anything you may need.

For those who do not want to be completely cut off from the rest of the world the WIFI is brilliant and reaches all the way down to the pool area.

It goes without saying that we will be rebooking for next year and would recommend this holiday to EVERYONE.

Super relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Ariving and taking the last turn of the main road, you think you drive into the olive fields. And you do but then a few 100 meters along there is a great house where we had an excellent two weeks of holidays. Ken and Sue are excellent hosts, the great views and quiet surroundings had us relaxed in no time. The house is equiped well and very cool even in the 40C sunny weather.

Situated right in the middle between Cordoba, Granada and Malaga it is an excellent sport for both relaxing and reading books as well as seeing the sites and rich Andalucian culture. It is spots like these that define relaxing holidays. We had a great time and can recommend this for everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you Frank for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the peace and quiet of the Villa. We were having a heat wave in May and it is still very hot now. I think the Villa is well situated, so that visiting Granada, Cordoba and Malaga is quite easy and then you can return to the peace and quiet and relax by your own pool. I bet you found the area very different from Holland ! We hope to see you again. Regards to both, Sue and Ken. P.S. Thanks for watering the plants so efficiently at the Villa...they are really looking good!

We had a fantastic time at Casa Jose and didn’t want to come home.

The villa is perfect with everything you need and more.

We were very lazy and didn’t get out much, perfect, just what we needed.

Ken and Sue were fantastic, lovely people who we now call friends.

Can’t recommend this enough for people wanting to get away from it all in a rural, beautiful setting.

Owner's Response: Hi Stu and Karen, Thank you for your lovely review. We had great fun meeting you both and 'ditto' about the friends bit! Thanks for cooking us such a wonderful meal and to Karen for such a fantastic sweet! Glad that you just recharged your batteries - ready to get back to London to go to work. There is no need to see the sights if you just want to chill by the pool with your kindle. Hope to see you again soon - and yes - you should have stayed longer than the 2 weeks! All the best to you both. Sue and Ken

This was such a great holiday! The villa is well furnished and spacious with beautiful grounds and a well-kept terrace area around the pool. It is located in a stunning area of Spain, that is secluded enough to make you feel as though you are getting away from it all, whilst only being a few minutes drive from shops, bars and supermarkets. Inside, there are leaflets, brochures and written notes explaining a wide variety of places to visit in the local area. We were happy to be lazy and stay by the pool for the week, but there was plenty of choice should we have wanted to venture out. From the moment we booked. Fantastic Holiday

Owner's Response: Dear Thomo. Thanks for your review. It was lovely to meet you both and look forward to seeing you next year! Really glad you chilled out at the Villa and re charged your batteries. I hope you had time to visit Iznajar and the lake and went canoeing ? It really is the 'real' Spain in this area and we are very proud of our local supermarket in Algarinejo! Take Care and speak to you soon. Kindest Regards Sue and Ken

Just returned from a week at Casa Jose. The villa and pool were excellent - spotlessly clean, spacious and very well-equipped. Everything you would expect and more for a relaxing and luxurious break, and perfectly placed for that visit to the Alhambra in Granada.

I cannot praise Sue and Ken too highly. They were the perfect hosts. Friendly and welcoming, giving us all the privacy we wanted, but on hand (in the villa next door) when needed. Nothing was too much bother, before or after we arrived, and they really helped us out when we needed their advice on a local issue. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Ahhh - Heather and Roger - thanks so much for your review - we really enjoyed meeting you both, even though it was only to say 'hello' and 'goodbye'! I was going to e mail you and say thanks for leaving the Villa so clean and you didn't need to clean the BBQ ! It made my changeover so easy. Glad you relaxed and enjoyed the pool and the villa and it would be lovely to meet you again. Kindest Regards Sue and Ken.
