The Space

Hello everyone!

We invite you to spend some relaxing time in our charming Ibizan style house with sea motives where we hope you will forget about the daily routine and stressful times.

Our guesthouse has 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen, 1 living room-dining room and two bedrooms: 1 double, and the other one, can be adapted according to your needs; double, 2 singles or bunk-beds. Outside you have outdoor furniture to chill out while reading a book, drinking a gin and tonic or eating a meal with your loved ones. Dont´t forget you can use our barbacue and enjoy fresh eggs just laid by our 3 chickens.

Please note that we also have a cot and a high-chair available. If you are going to need them, please let us know.

Once you are here the options are endless. If you are into sunbathing your days away, this is the place. We are sorrounded by Blue flag beaches less than a ten-minute-walk from the house. In high season you can practise free tai chi and yoga every day, use the library facilites or go to the weekly movies on the beach. For the keen cyclists a trip to the nature reserve of el Desierto de las Palmas is a must, or to cycle along the green way to Oropesa del Mar. In this town you will find Marina 'Or. Other activities avaiblable are: horse riding, hill walking, golf, water sports or to go sight seeing to places as charming as Morella, Villafamés, or Peñíscola, among many others.

There is no doubt the summer is a busy time in the area. Many festivals take place in the area. In Benicassim: the reknown FIB (12 al 15 julio), Rothotom (17-24 agosto), Classic guitar festival(30 agosto - 6 septiembre), the lnternational Magdalena festival every year in March, San Juan in June, etc.

Our house is situated in a residential area of the sea district of Castellón, el Grao, and at the beginning of the seaside area of Benicassim. This is a quiet area and in a couple of minutes by foot you will be in the seaside zone with restaurants, beach bars, supermarket, etc. Public transport is available near by and within few minutes you can arrive to the heart of Benicassim or to the nearest city, Castellón. In Castellón or Benicassim you can catch trains to anywhere in Spain, Valencia not to be missed and it´s only 1 hour away by train. Castellón is located 278 kms from Barcelona, 76 kms from Valencia and 268 from Alicante.

Please note that we have a number of bicycles to be used at your own leisure, ranging in sizes.

This is an undiscovered area of Spain by mainstream tourists which has lots to offer and where you could, no doubt, recharge your batteries.

Free pick up from airport, train and bus depot, if possible,

  • It was great. We had such a good time. The house is beautiful end equipped with everything we needed for us and our 2 kids. The garden was perfect and both kids felt comfortable exploring it, saying hi to the chickens, playing with the bikes and using the trampoline. There are nice beaches close-by and bikes with a trailer for guests to use. Monica and Robert are very good hosts. They provided us with all we could have wished for plus a lot of good recommendations on how to get around. We can only recommend it!

  • My fiancé Janelle and I stayed at Robert and Monica's property and had an amazing time. Robert picked us up from the train station, got us settled, had some food and drink in the fridge for us, showed us around and if we needed to go anywhere Robert would drop us there and pick us up again which far exceeded our expectations. The property was ideal for us, was clean, had all the items one would have at home, bikes that we could use and even outdoor furniture. This was our first experience of AirBNB and it really was quite a special stay. We would definately stay here again and highly recommend this property and especially the hosts. Robert even got in touch about some items I left behind to see if I wanted them posted back to NZ. Thanks for the great stay guys, everything you did for us was amazing and really appreciated. Kurt and Janelle.

  • Mónica y Robert son encantadores, así como su casa, repleta de detalles, cuidada al máximo con mucho mimo y limpísima. Tiene un encanto especial por pequeña y cuca!
    Detalles como los que tuvieron al recibirnos con una botella de cava en cubitera, la nevera y armarios llenos de productos a nuestro servicio sin coste alguno, unos bomboncitos en la habitación, etc...
    Todo esto junto a la disponibilidad plena de bicicletas, patinetes, utensilios de playa como palas, sombrilla, tumbonas, mapas de la zona y explicaciones, etc.. han hecho que hayamos pasado unos días fantásticos en su casita y que no quisiéramos volver a la cruda realidad de la ciudad!!!
    Un beso enorme para los dos, que casi no nos pudimos despedir, y otro para el pequeño Robert!

  • Casita con un encanto especial y unos anfitriones insuperables. Encontraréis un espacio acogedor y te hacen sentir como en tu casa. Cuidan hasta el mínimo detalle: tienes agua, leche, café, azúcar...en fin, lo necesario para después de un viaje no tener que preocuparte por ir a comprar hasta el día siguiente y con tranquilidad. Ha sido una suerte haber encontrado este alojamiento. Lo tenemos cerca y creo que repetiremos.

  • My parents and my grandmothers stayed with Mónica and Robert for almost a week and they had a wonderful time. The house is very cute, clean and has everything one needs for a perfect vacation. Mónica and Robert are the best. They are very welcoming and friendly and helped my family a lot. We can highly recommend this place! IThank you Mónica and Robert!

  • Wow! What a perfect little place. Stayed here with a couple of friends and it really was a Mediterranean escape. The house is beautifully designed and has everything you need. It's in a lovely quiet area but just a short walk from an incredible beach that stretches for miles. Robert and Monica are perfect hosts. Their place is just next door and they were very welcoming but also considerate of our privacy. They are very helpful with local advice.

    I can't recommend this place enough!

  • Hemos pasado diez días estupendos en casa de Robert y Mónica. Simplemente increible su trato y disponibilidad. Hemos cenado y comido juntos con ellos varias veces, y parecía que éramos amigos de toda la vida! Inmejorable. La casa muy bonita, adapta para estar comodamente con dos niños. Al llegar la nevera estaba llena (bebidas, agua, leche, pizzas, postres, yogures, etc.). En el exterior tienen piscina inflable, suficiente si un día por lo que sea no apetece o no se puede ir a la playa. Además nos dejaban utilizar también el jardín de su casa, que tiene un columpio y una cama elástica, y los niños estaban entretenidos todo el día. También nos dejaron sus bicis con el carrito para llevar a los niños. La playa está a 15 min andando más o menos, que con niños pequeños puede ser un poco pesado. Por eso nosotros preferíamos ir en coche, pero nunca hemos tenido problemas de aparcamiento aunque fuera Agosto. Desde luego lo recomendamos, y si volvemos en la zona de Benicassim seguramente intentaremos volver a esta casa.

  • Very good place! Wonderful clean house for 4 members family where you can find everything you need. Own parking. Ten minutes by walk to the beach. But the most important thing - it's the people who we met! Robert, Monica and Rob, thank you very much! We were very glad to meet such a wonderful people. We wish your family all the best!

  • I stayed with Monica and Robert for one most pleasurable week. As a starter, the fridge was stacked with cold drinks and all the basics for a first - and more - meal. The pool - unannounced to us - was the favorite place for the children :-) which gave me more spare time then expected.
    We received every help / assistant / beach accessory we could think of. Monica and Robert were more than helpful to sort out all questions about possible excursions, trips to the town, shops and more.
    We enjoyed a great evening together with them and little Robert of course having a gorgeous barbecue in the main garden.
    All the amenities we enjoyed would make a real huge list, but here the most important ones:
    *The house is great. Not big but for 4 it has all you could ask for.
    * The private yard + additional parking also is perfect.
    * Nice and big bathroom and an outdoor shower
    * There is a baker man coming every morning round 10 am: perfect if you plan to enjoy a calm and easy morning 'at home'.
    * A washing machine is accessible for the guest: great to have!
    * As a special treat, sometimes there are fresh eggs directly from Monicas and Roberts hens.
    * Water boards and sea toys were borrowed to us: good if you fly in with limited luggage allowance :-)
    * The area is quite nice, the beachfront great and well kept. Plus we liked that the houses facing the beach just had 3 or 4 levels. If you had your share of masses of high buildings covering every spot close to the sea, you will definitely enjoy Castellón de la Plana.
    * If you want more bars, touristic atmosphere, you can opt for the beach in neighboring Benicassim.
    * Just to mention it one more time :-) Great host who will make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
    So we definitely recommend that place! It works for a couple as it is not too big. And with children - I had 3 with me - it also proved to be perfect. So if we visit the area again, we definitely will return :-)
    Thank you Monica and Robert!
    Kerstin, Antonia, Talia, Karabo wish you all the best

About
Hola! Nos gustaría que nos conozcáis un poco antes de llegar a "Escapada Mediterránea": My marido es Robert, irlandés, nuestro peque Rob, es "spairish" y yo, Mónica, soy española, pero he vivido tantos años en Irlanda que parte de mi es irlandesa, no lo puedo evitar. :). Hace un par de años decidimos cambiar el paisaje verde de Irlanda por el Mar Mediterráneo y nuestro "pequeño sueño" se hizo realidad cuando construimos nuestra pequeña pero encantadora casa de huéspedes y así conoceros, personas que venís de muchos países y de diversas culturas. Creemos que el lugar donde vivimos es un sitio privilegiado, está rodeado de montañas por un lado y del mar Mediterráneo por otro, kilómetros de playa y festivales y tradiciones todo el año. Si bien esta zona es más popular en verano, fuera de la época festival es idónea para disfrutar de unos días de tranquilidad y relajación. Ofrecemos precios especiales para estancias largas en invierno. Contáctanos. Nos parece importante que nuestros huéspedes se sientan como en casa y por este motivo, hacemos todo lo posible para que vuestra estancia aquí sea un placer y os llevéis un recuerdo bonito de vuestras vacaciones. Valoramos que las vacaciones son un período muy importante para todos y "muy corto". Si bien no llevamos mucho tiempo como anfitriones de Airbnb, de momento no hemos tenido más que experiencias geniales con nuestros huéspedes. Solemos organizar una barbacoa o comida juntos y así nos conocemos mejor y compartimos experiencias, pero sólo para aquellos que les interese. Nos gusta respetar vuestra privacidad y estamos disponibles para lo que necesitéis. Nuestro moto es: La felicidad no es un destino, es una forma de vivir. Por cierto, hablamos español, inglés y francés. Hi! We want you to get to know us a bit more before you arrive to "Mediterraean Espacade" My husband Robert is Irish, our little one, Rob is spairish, and I, Mónica, am Spanish but I have lived in Ireland for so long that a part of me is also Irish, I can´t help it. :). A couple of years ago we decided to change the Irish scenery for the Mediterranean sea and we made our "little dream true" by building a little but gorgeous guesthouse to have people from many countries and diverse cultures visiting us. We believe the place where we live is a privileged placed, sorrounded by both, mountains and sea, and many festivals and traditions all year around. Although this area is more popular in the summer, outside high season is the perfect place to have some tranquil and relaxing days. We offer over wintering special rates. Please contact us for more details. We deem important that our guests feel at home and for this reason we do everything possible to ensure that your stay here is a pleasure and that you take away with you many happy memories from your holidays, a short but very important time for all of us. We have been hosts of Airbnb for less than a year, but we have been extremely lucky to have had many of you staying with us and so far we have had nothing but great experiences. For those interested, we normally organise a lunch or dinner to get to know each other and share experiences. We value your privacy and we are available for whatever you may need while in our house. By the way, we speak English, Spanish and French. Our motto is: Happiness is not a destination, it is a way of life!
