Stunning, roomy, quirky and sociable house.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic. Frank and Luisa were very accommodating from the start and checking in and out of the house was a breeze.

The house is huge, well appointed and has lots of hidden surprises. The pool is very pretty and once you jump in the first time it's a struggle to leave it. I am a converted natural pool fan as a result.

The beach is a short stroll away and is great for activities or lounging.

Thanks again for letting us stay and hopefully we'll be back.

Magical stay

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully peaceful property with stunning views to Africa and the surrounding hills and countryside, everyday offered wonderful family time; dinners on one of the many verandas, shady poolside snoozes after lunch, early morning runs and swims, evening walks to some lovely bars nearby. Not just a luxurious house, but a really special place; with many special spots within the house so everyone had their own space.

The description was accurate but didn't really prepare us for the breadth of what was on offer. Really well maintained by the lovely Luisa and her staff. Very clean and lovely linen. Would recommend the Tesoro and the Miro restaurants nearby, plus any local cafe for the Andaluz breakfast!

Beautifully decorated with individual touches in abundance, the most sublime of pools with water lilies and frogs on hand to gaze at...truly an amazing place for a large family. We loved it and we will be back.

We had a fantastic week, there were four generations, thirteen people and a year old baby in our family party.

The house was beautiful and had everything one needed, the natural pool was a highlight so enjoyed by us all, the sea and beach so close at hand,

Beautiful villa and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning villa and perfect for groups/families - there's plenty of space for everyone to not be on each others toes. Everything's been thought of down to the little details. The natural swimming pool is beautiful and we enjoyed a lazy day around it - as well as the strawberry patch at the bottom of the (huge) garden and a sunset walk to the sand dunes that you can reach by a 5 minute shortcut. The hosts are friendly and helpful, and quick with communication in the lead up to booking. We just wish we could have stayed longer, a weekend wasn't enough!

A very special villa

  • 5 of 5

The location is good; easy to access and within a few minutes walk of the beach and sand dunes. However, it is the villa itself that is so special and the garden with its natural pool, complete with frogs and terrapins, is amazing and beautiful. The villa is cleverly designed so that a large group (we were 13) can choose to be with others but there is also space for privacy. The beds were comfortable and the rooms decorated with some lovely touches,including hand-painted scenes on the walls of two of the bedrooms, although they are quite variable in size and amenities. Luisa was helpful in giving local advice and sorting out any minor day to day problems. We were there at the end of May and the weather was perfect; warm and sunny. People should be aware that the wind is very strong - good for kite surfing and keeping temperatures comfortable but this may not suit everyone. We spent some enjoyable hours wandering in Tarifa and Cadiz and particularly enjoyed visiting the nearby Roman site at Bolonia.

Owner's Response: We are pleased the house was so special for your extended family holiday, the pool is an original feature which everyone enjoys. The Tarifa area does have a lot to offer all ages and interests, apart from the wind for kitesurfers and windsurfers, the roman ruins and some great white villages to visit, castles and foodie restaurants... We would be delighted to welcome you back anytime.

Dream house

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year booking to stay here, in a perfect world I would never leave and this would be my home forever. The house itself is magical. The decoration is beautiful yet low key whilst containing every single mod con you can think of. We have a large family and it accommodates all of us and any friends that visit whilst we are there. The beach access is a wonderful treat as you walk out of the back garden onto the dune. If it is windy there is a large garden to retreat to with slides and swings. All in all we love staying at this house and fully recommend it to anyone considering a visit.
