8/10 Good

Cool House
The house and the location is areally beautiful. Within minutes you are in the city and the access to the beach in is a good walking distance. There were three downsides regarding our stay. The not communicated construction side next door was awful… If you spend a lot of money for a week, travel across europe and you receive the information 2 days prior to your stay is not ok. The noise was on a level, which was not acceptable . Additonally when we arrived we went for a dive in the pool. Shortly after, some friends of mine cut theier feet, because there was everywhere shattered glas around the pool. From the kitchen down to the pool. So first things first, we cleaned for 1 hour straight until it was safe again. And the somehow the chlor in the whirpool discolored all of our swimsuits.

Best villa we’ve ever stayed in
I knew the villa was going to be amazing, having read all the reviews, but it really IS amazing! Nanette was so helpful at every point, even organising a last-minute drop-off meal for our event from the local restaurant. The villa was immaculate, and was very well equipped. The hot-tub was such a bonus as we had 3 young children (3,4,6) who treated it like a baby pool. I would recommend to anyone.

Beautiful vacation home!
This property and home is truly remarkable. Beautiful pool and jacuzzi overlooking the Spanish coastline. The beach is only 5 minutes away and is relaxing and beautiful. The home itself was updated and clean with multiple beds and bedrooms! We can easily see ourselves coming back with our children and family in the future. The town is very close but be mindful that this is not a typical tourist location, which is both good and bad. Practice your Spanish! There was some construction next door, and although it was completely out of her control, the owner and host went out of her way to ensure us the peaceful vacation time away from our busy lives! Her recommendations and suggestions led us to great food and an amazing adventure in Morocco as well! Hopeful to come back and stay for at least a week next time!

Yet again…..AMAZING!!!
This is our second time at this property and it still is the most amazing place to stay for all ages! We had such a rough start with our flights from Chicago, Nannette the owner was absolutely FANTASTIC helping us out. Once we got to the house every worry washed away with the beautiful views and the warm ocean breezes. House once again had EVERYTHING a family needed. We travelled with kids ages 7-14. Pool was perfect, the game room was top notch. Ping pong area was SO MUCH fun and well thought out. More than enough room where the kids were busy and adults enjoyed wine on the balcony. It was heaven. You can’t beat Zahara for location world class food, nice drives to Vejer, Gibraltar and more great historical towns. Can I give it a 10 star rating?

Exceeded expectations
Our family included 12 people from ages 6 to 82 and it was the perfect location for all of us. The layout of the house was wonderful and the view was spectacular. The details provided for our comfort was beyond our expectations. Nanette was amazing in communicating with us right from the beginning and until our departure. She gave us valuable assistance with restaurant suggestions and reservations as well as any information we wanted about the community. We would be delighted to return there again in the future.
