Description

The Space

Built in the slope of Salobreña´s rock, arranged over two floors and two sets of stairs, conveniently separating the living and sleeping areas. The decor combines original features with a vintage touch. The perfect base to explore the area.

As a Spaniard spending most of my time in London, Salobreña has all I am after whenever I go back to my country: authenticity, great weather, & beautiful surroundings. So in 2005 I decided to look for a town house in the town, and found one that had a lot of potential. Since then I enjoy decorating it to keep it as comfortable, spacious and stylish home in which to spend a holiday. The last major upgrade has been carried out in December 2013.

It is not a beach apartment nor a villa with a swimming pool, but rather a charming town house in which to feel part of town life. It was built in the 60's in a sought after lower part of Salobreña Old Town, amongst Spanish neighbours. The house is unusually spacious for its location, luminous and with good proportions, approximately 70sqm.

It is built in the slope of Salobreña´s famous rock, and is arranged over two floors and two sets of stairs, conveniently separating the living and sleeping areas. If staying with small children, safety gates in stairs can easily be fitted.

On the ground floor, steps lead into an large open plan kitchen, a living room and a terrace. The terrace has a southeast orientation, receiving the sunlight from the morning until well into the afternoon, ensuring protection from local winds, and a mild & pleasant temperature inside the property all year round! White floors, original stone walls, a generous leather corner sofa, vintage table and lamps, aircon/heating, ambience lighting, books, boardgames, WiFi, a large satellite TV, bluetooth speaker, DVD… even an original school blackboard! everything contributes to being a space for sharing and relaxing, and an unusually large one for a town house in Salobreña!

Downstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms overlooking a quiet pedestrian street, a subway tiled bathroom with an extra large shower, and a toilet. The decor combines original features and local materials, with a vintage, non fussy touch. For more photos visit flickr jorgepostigo.

The property is located in a particularly quiet cul -de sac with no traffic noise, there is car access to the front door, and parking spaces can be found in the same street and nearby area. The property also benefits from being a moments walk from a small food shop run by local people, a 10 minute walk (600 meters) to the sea front, and 5 minutes walk to the town centre, where a municipal market, large supermarkets, banks and shops are found.

Rita, the housekeeper, is a trusted and resourceful local lady who is responsible for welcoming you, handing out keys, cleaning and resolving any issues you might have. She only speaks Spanish, but manages to make herself understood to all guests! Although I live in London, I am of course also available on email and mobile 24/7.

Guests have access to the whole house. Everything is included so all you have to do is relax: kitchen utensils, WiFi, bed linen, towels, a welcome pack of food and final cleaning. When booking for ten days or more a 3h weekly cleaning after the first week is included in the price rent.

Although I do not live on site I am available 24/7 on mobile and email. During your stay, the housekeeper, a lovely local lady, is available to sort out any issues on the spot.

The Old Town of Salobreña is alive with locals, they are friendly people who will talk to you if prompted. This is the real Spain, not a secluded area for tourists.

Car is not essential, but advisable for those who wish to explore nearby towns and beaches. Parking spaces are generally found at the end of the street, and on the parallel road, Ladera de La Cruz. Parking can take longer to find during the Summer months, Easter and Christmas.

With a queen size (180cm) bed, two single (90cm) beds, and an inflatable individual bed, the house can sleep up to maximum of 5 people. We also have a baby cot.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the whole house. The price includes everything so you just have to relax: WiFi, kitchen utensils, towels, linens, welcome pack, 3h hours weekly cleaning for stays of ten days or more, and departure cleaning.

Interaction with Guests

Rita, a local woman utmost confidence, resolute, friendly, and knowledgeable expert in the area, is in charge of your reception, handing of the keys, and cleaning. She will answer any questions you have and you can call her during your stay should you need to. And although I live in London, I am of course also available 24 hours via email and mobile.

The Neighborhood

The Old Town of Salobreña is full of life, neighbours are discreet and friendly people that will talk to you if prompted. This is the real Spain, not a tourist enclave!

Getting Around

A car is not essential but is recommended, especially if you want to visit towns and beaches in the area, and there are many! Most guests hire a car in Malaga airport or Granada. In high occupancy periods (Christmas, Summer) it can be difficult to find a parking spot in our street, in which case you can try the parallel street Ladera de la Cruz. Salobreña has taxi services and a regular bus route across the Old Town.

Other Things to Note

The house can hold up to 5 people, with 1 double bed (180cm), 2 single (90cm), 1 inflatable mattress (90cm) and a cot. Both bedrooms have blackout shutters.
