About This Listing
This central studio space has its own bathroom, double bed, and large roof terrace with seating and BBQ. The views over the old town are beautiful and make for an authentic Tarifa experience. Can be rented alongside the house below or separately.
The Buddha Studio and Terrace
Located in a charming corner in the centre old town, yet serenely perched high above it all, this comfortable studio extends into a big sunny terrace with great views of the Moorish rooftops and Tarifa old town.
The studio has a king size bed, a bathroom with a great shower, sink and separate toilet.
There are simple tea & coffee making facilities, kettle, fridge and toaster.
The studio is light and fresh with big double glass doors opening to your roof terrace, furnished with a chill out area and table and chairs.
There is fast WiFi connection, yoga mats, barbecue, hammock, towels, linen and beach gear....
Located very close to beaches, restaurants, bars and shops, free parking and there is an open late mini market at the end of the street. You really feel the ambiance of Andalucía in this neighborhood, yet it is a cool place to relax or take part in all the extreme sporting activities Tarifa has to offer; Kite-surfing, surfing, windsurfing, hiking, bike riding trails, horse riding, rock climbing, etc.
I prefer to rent the studio for a week minimum stay, especially during high season. This is negotiable during low season. Last minute inquiries always welcome.
Below the studio is the town house, listed on Airbnb as 'Tarifa centre Town House' both can be rented together if required and available.
Tarifa is a very special and unique place with a lot to offer. From this rental it is all on your doorstep for an authentic experience.
Interaction with Guests
As much or little as they need!
Tarifa Authentic! A quaint and quiet cobbled street just off one of the main streets of the old town. Walking distance to everything Tarifa itself has to offer and only a few minutes drive to all the main beaches on the coastal road. Access to all sports; kite-surfing, windsurfing, rock climbing, horse riding, hiking,
Our quiet street is pedestrianized; you can unload here, but not park. You are most likely to find free parking, very close by, outside the old city wall. There is also a public paid for parking lot there (300 m from the house).
The only parking and traffic jams we have in Tarifa occurs in July and August along the beach roads but not so much within the Old Town.
Directions to the Buddha studio:
Public transportation from Malaga airport is available. There is an airport bus to Marbella (and a few to Algeciras) and there you take another to Algeciras or Tarifa directly.
From Gibraltar you catch a bus in La Linea, 15 min walking across the border.
Sevilla and Jerez buses often pass Cadiz first. Check bus schedules on the net.
(website hidden) and (website hidden)
-Once here you are within walking distance to various beaches and good spots. A car is not an absolute necessity here as you can walk to everything from the house, if you mostly want to stroll around, catch some sun and relax. In the summer period there is a beach bus running up and down the coast road where a lot of the kite-surfing, windsurfing and surf action takes place.
You can get cheep deals on pre-booking one week rentals from the airport. Check the internet. Saves you time, as the public transport, can go slow, depending on connections.
Driving from direction Cadiz and Malaga
From direction Malaga: Take the first entrance to Tarifa half way down the curve.
From direction Cadiz: Take the 2.nd entrance into Tarifa half away up the curve.
- Make a left 200 m before the traffic light, down the hill between the old city wall and apartment building blocks. As you reach the bottom there is a little roundabout (Plaza General Cupon) with a statue. The little street called La Independencia, is the back walking way into our street.
-This is the most direct way and you get a sensation of where you are before finding a parking space..... If you have a lot of stuff to unload, take the other way in through town.
If you choose to take the first exit into Tarifa from direction Cadiz, you enter town by the main road (you pass poligono and the big surf shops). When you get to the one and only cross light in Tarifa you can make a right and then turn down the hill towards the sea/port, where you make a left turn. This takes you through the old town and to the church of San Mateo. Our street runs along the right side of the church from here. If you just continue along the road, you come to the roundabout (General Cupon), I previous talked about.
Let joy, love and respect guide your way :)
The Buddha space es un apartamento donde no he podido disfrutar de mis vacaciones. La ubicación es muy buena, en pleno centro de Tarifa, y la atmósfera es también muy buena, con cierta gracia de pueblo antiguo y un aire "chill-out". Sin embargo, la cama consiste en un colchón muy incómodo (pero muy incómodo!!) sobre el suelo, una ducha y un pequeño baño dentro de la habitación. No se dispone de armario ni de casi nada que pueda hacer la estancia agradable. Además, la habitación sólo dispone de unas cortinas translúcidas, por lo que el sol entrará directamente desde el amanecer. En resumen, estuve cuatro noches en la habitación y no fueron vacaciones en ningún aspecto. Creo que la idea es buena, pero falta calidad y seriedad
The apartment was very nice and clean. There was a moist feeling inside but i guess this was mainly because it had been raining heavily before our arrival and the air outside was very moist. Only real minus was the internet connection that didn't work during the whole stay. It was also somewhat difficult to lock/open the door from inside. We enjoyed the large terrace and the ambience of the old town. The room was lovely decorated and furnished.
Positives are as described: a very central location; a large terrace that catches the sun; lots of green plants; big mattress (this is on the floor, which wasn't a problem for us); good water pressure/heat; cosy touches like a daybed, cushions, candles and lanterns are provided. Suggestions: bedlinen and kitchen equipment could do with basic upgrading; even perhaps a (very) small indoor sofa for rainy times? Very loud, regular church bells might disturb some (I always bring earplugs). Unfortunately, little can be done about the Asbo neighbours.
Sehr gute Lage, direkt in der Altstadt gelegen, leider Sehr hellhörig, wegen des engen Raumes und der recht spärlichen Ausstattung kommt leicht ein Campingcharakter auf. Sehr schöne Terrasse mit tollem Ausblick. Preis- Leistungsverhältnis nicht so stimmig wie bei anderen Unterkünften.

About the Host, Victoria
I live in Spain with my family of three kids in the countryside. We love to visit Tarifa so much that we bought a house there. We would love for people to share the experience that we enjoy so much. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions.
