About this listing
"Heaven" & "La Juderia Suite" joined, recently separated to offer more options for those who want less space. This is the original house in it's luxurious, spacious dimension.
Perfect for couples, can accommodate 4-5.
2 ba, 3 terraces, 3 beds
Nestled right inside the ancient 10th century old town wall, just under a main stone archway, some say the house's foundation is one of the ancient tower that protected the town from the pirates & the Berbers.
Today it is journey into another time & space, an inspirational experience from a home built with imagination, creativity, elegance & beauty. The owner's "personal masterpiece" as writes the New York Times, "It's like a fairytale", (see (website hidden) to read the full page profile piece).
3 terraces with 360 degree views to enjoy the sunrise & sunset, where the light of the full moon pours onto the master bed. Views are of Africa & on a clear night Tangiers sparkle at a distance. Other views overlook old Vejer, the Castillo, a palm tree & the ancient streets of the "Juderia", (commonly the oldest street of the ancient towns).
Spaciously designed & lovingly filled with details such as hand made tiles, platters & lamps. The bathrooms are accentuated with 1920's glass tiles that were made for the 1927 Universal Fair in Seville. Each one is unique & one of a kind. The staircase is is hand forged with an original design as are several windows & doors. Look carefully into the pattern & you'll find a medieval symbol of eternal well being. Colorful bougainvillea & sweet scented stephanotis flowers climb the patio & terrace walls. The fireplace is a work of art, hand sculpted by the artist, (architect & owner), using her own hand made ceramics.
Fitted with all the modern amenities, 2 bathrooms, 2 entries & 3 terraces. The master bedroom has en suite bathroom & the living room is designed as a studio with a huge sleeping nook over 2 mts wide & a loft above with a 2nd bathroom for who is sleeping in the living room or loft. The music room flows into a large high ceiling living room & the kitchen also has a large dinning room table & overhead fan. The 3 overhead ceiling fans & thick walls keep it cool even on the hottest days.
Cleaners are available, suggested 2 x per week.
There is a completely independent apt suite downstairs if you would like more space with a shower bathroom, kitchenette & a private courtyard with street entry.
Shops & restaurants are all near by. The "Antigua Correos" on Juan Bueno has unusual & very beautiful things he has brought from Turkey, South America & of course, Spanish pieces.
Spectacular white sandy beaches with horse back ridding, surfing & yoga classes at sunset are just 12 km away.
You can see more of my work as an artist & designer in hotels scattered along the coast to Tarifa, most notably the Hotel Punta Sur where I designed the lobby, restaurant, bar, garden entry & a lake with peacocks, a palm tree & a waterfall. My mosaic fireplaces are the center piece of the restaurant & lobby. "Valdavaquerros" (worlds windsurfing mecca) has a totally unique fireplace sculpted of my hand made porcelain tiles in the shape of a windsurf.
Street is La Juderis 8, coner of calle Trafalgar, Juan Bueno & La Juderia. Best to see my directions & not depend on GPS!!!

Other Things to Note
correct wifi code is
(phone number hidden)
right faucet in kitchen has filtered water, in bedroom is a large, flat screen "Smart TV" with internet.
In full summer heat I place a silver lining in the terrace door to block the heat. It is easily removed, so to see the terrace door, flowers & the moonlight at night, or keep it to block morning light.
Please keep door to terrace closed & locked to avoid unwanted stray cats & the occasional adventuresome soul that finds his way over the old town wall!
Please be sure to lock the street door when you go out! People sometimes think it has an automatic lock, it does not!
trash is picked up every night except Saturday night, after 10 pm just outside the door to the right on the street.
Recycling is at the bottom of the hill, to the left & to the right. yellow is for plastic & cans, blue is paper & green is for glass.
The most fabulous apartment in the most enchanting place in Andalusia. The house is beautifully and artistically decorated in the Moorish/ Spanish style with plenty of character and eccentricity. Luxurious bedroom that opens out onto the most fantastic roof top terrace (with outside bath tub!) which overlooks the whole of Vejer and out to sea. Set in the old castellated, town wall and located in the charming old Jewish district, I could not recommend a better place to stay. Lots of great little bars and restaurants just a few minutes amble up the maze of old paved streets. Debra was super friendly and helpful. So enjoyed my stay, thank you. I will be back for sure!
Run, don't walk, to this place. It is unlike any place we've ever stayed. It was almost a shame to leave the apartment every morning (except that the beaches were fabulous) and it was such a pleasure to come home every evening. Every detail was extraordinary - whether on the rooftop patio, the sun-drenched bedroom or the serene living room. Charming Vejer was right out the front door so this was just perfect.

The house is even more beautiful then the pictures. Only stayed three nights but wish we had more time. Great location and Debra was extremely nice and helpful.
Debra is a wonderful host. She was waiting for us late in the evening at a roundabout close to her house, when we vouldnt find the adress at first.
During our stay in her terrific house she helped us with everything in a very charming and sensibel manner.
Everything was perfect!... Staying there a wonderful experience .
This house is amazing and one of my all time favorite airbnb finds! Highly recommended. My kids loved the unique spaces and despite the cool temps we watched the sunrise and sunset from the rooftop patio every day. We found Vejer de la Frontera incredibly charming with great restaurants and easy day trips. I can't say enough...we will be back! Debra was fabulous as a host!
Absolutely lovely place - Debra has restored this old house with such imagination and talent, curious and charming little corners, magical roof terraces and really fabulous bedroom. She is a delightful host and looked after us with great recommendations and local knowledge, clearly at home in this very charming town. As were we and very sad to leave - highly recommended.

About the Host, Debra
I am a creative being & very sensitive to my surroundings. I love art & architecture & refer to what I do as integrating art & architecture, the 2 things I'm most stimulated by. I also love music & being with other creative people that also have the need to share something of themselves with the world. I just started renting with airb&b & think it is a fantastic way to connect with people & places in a respectful & honest way!
