About this listing
A quiet high quality apartment with a large shared pool, 20 minutes walk to the sea, within easy reach of Spain's famous tourist cities Cordoba, Granda etc. Ideal for beach (& Golfers). Secure + private parking, Wifi, TV, large balcony + sea views
Marina de la Alcaidesa is a quiet development set on 7 miles of sandy beach, uncrowded and with just a handful of bars and restaurants. The apartment is fully equipped with a utility room with washing machine, a kitchen with Miele appliances, dish washer, oven, hob, toaster, fridge freezer etc.
The apartment has two bedrooms, the master leading onto the large balcony which is also accessed from the large living/dining room.
I've decorated it with bright sunny furniture, a very comfy leather sofa, large reading chair, and as i have a thing about lights lots of lights everywhere!
I wanted a peaceful and cosy space and the views from the balcony are down to the sea, all south facing. So apart from being homey its also a fantastic location form which to explore the area and region.
Ad I do not live at the apartment you have the whole space to yourself. I restrict lettings to 4 people although it theoretically sleeps six. The master bedroom has a double bed, and the second bedroom has a single which makes into a double. There is also a separate camp bed. The sofa in the living room could sleep two, so there are lots of options for how the space can be used. The flat is accessed either from the road, through a security gate, or from the private car parking underground, where guests have exclusive use of space 3, and take the list or stairs up one level. So if you have mobility problems it is still OK.
Interaction with guests
I do not live nearby, by the letting agent has a bar 3 minutes away and is available for key handover, welcome or any problems.(See www.casaonditas website for her contact details.)
The location is unique, while bars are 3 minutes drive away, for the Spanish coast the development is quiet, and the pool which is 30 seconds walk away is also quiet as its set on the side not in front of the apartment. There is an amazing amount to do and see in the region, Swimming walking and cycling are all popular and lots of golf on the doorstep. Sightseeing is incredible with Seville, Cordoba, Jerez Granada and Cadiz all less than 2 hours drive. There are day trips to Morocco and Gibraltar is worth a visit (and only 2 minutes away).
Within 5 minutes (uphill) walk is a golf club with bar and restaurant, 3 minutes by car and you have bars and mini mart etc, and a great Thai fusion restaurant ranked No.1 on trip adviser for food in the area. Within 15 minutes you have a huge choice of bars and restaurants many traditional serving tapas etc.
You need a car unless your whole vacation is on bike, which is feasable.
Other things to note
The water is very hot, so take care, and please take extra care with the marble floors in the bathrooms which get extremely slippery when wet.
Their is good wifi and a wide choice of TV channels, although the signal isn't good for TV in the whole area.
I've furnished the apartment for adult use. You can smoke on the balcony but not inside the apartment. Sorry - no pets. Please tie the curtains back when going in and out onto the balcony to avoid falling or tripping.

I like to make nice homes and creating Casa Onditas was fun and I hope you like it too. The area has a great atmosphere, and I chose it because it is surrounded by interesting places to visit. After a career in the leisure industry and management consulting I am heading towards semi retirement, have three grown up children and I enjoy cooking and travel and music.
