A great place to unwind! Gillian and Marylynne are great hosts, thinking of everything. Lovely quiet location, spotless, characterful rooms, managing to stay cool even in excessive temperatures! The pool is pretty unbeatable. Our 2 1/2 year old also loved it - especially the toys…

Daniel & Kimberley were a pleasure to host and were happy, considerate guests. They communicated wonderfully both before and after arrival which helps enormously. We would wholeheartedly recommend them to any AirBNB hosts. They left their casita in very clean and tidy condition.

Stunning villa and location. Well thought out design of apartments and very clean and tidy. Overall a peaceful stay in a wonderful part of the world, many thanks. However, we hadn't realised quite how remote it was - took a long time to get to nearest shops/restaurants. Wifi w…

Response from Gillian & Marylynne:
There are ‘autoservicios’ (small village supermarkets) in our local village just 2-3km distance away. For a good ‘international standard’ supermarket it’s a half hour trip into Rute. There is also a bar serving food in the village – but the owners were closed for a holiday. In late October (at the time of Toby’s stay) at least two other nearby cafes/restaurants are closed for the season. Wifi - technology in rural Spain can be challenging. Wifi availability is provided at a comfortable seating spot outside. Normally the log fire would be usable in October, However, we had a very dry summer which continued (unusually) right through October apart from one rainfall. Wonderful weather for guests but the danger of fire in the countryside (with all the olive trees and dried grasses) is huge. Lighting fires/log burners under these conditions is a fire risk in the countryside. As such we provided alternative heating in the form of a gas fire for the lounge.
