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.
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.
We read a lot of Debra's charme and hospitality in advance. Unfortunaly she has been out of town during our short stay, so we didn't find out if that's really true (but she stayed in close contact by mail). Actualy that was the only thing we missed – her place is simply spectacular. It's embedded in Vejer's old town wall, that alone makes it special. But the way Debra restored this house is the true sensation, you can see in every tiny detail how much she must like this old house. Favourite places for the kids: the electric piano and the bed with the curtain in the living room. The adults were stunned by the bedroom under the roof and the wonderful roof terrace. We'll come back, be sure.
Una casa maravillosa, ubicada en el centro de Vejer. Con todo lo necesario para pasar unos días estupendos y con todas las comodidades necesarias.
En cuanto a Debra, un encanto que nos ayudó a llegar sin problemas, nos facilitó toda la información y nos abrió las puertas de su casa en donde nos sentimos muy cómodos.

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!
