"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.

The Space

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.
Spectacular white sandy beaches with horse back ridding, surfing & yoga classes at sunset are just 12 km away.

You can see more of this designer & artist in hotels scattered along the coast to Tarifa, most notably the Hotel Punta Sur where she designed the lobby, restaurant, bar, garden entry & a lake with peacocks, a palm tree & a waterfall. Her fireplaces are the centerpiece of the restaurant & lobby. "Valdavaquerros" (worlds windsurfing mecca) has a totally unique fireplace sculpted of her hand made porcelain tiles in the shape of a windsurf.

  • We absolutely loved our stay at Debra's beautiful home in Vejer! The house is by far one of the most lovely places that I've ever stayed. It has been built with such consideration and passion that it's impossible not to feel instantly at home. Debra is fantastic and a wealth of knowledge on where to go and what to do. We only wish we could have stayed longer!! Thank you Debra we'll see you again very soon!!

    Portia & her friends were GREAT guests & a treat to meet as people, I loved having them & look forward to having here back, anytime! They belong to a new breed of high-class travelers who travel light and are easy going with a great appreciation for where they go. I was proud to have them here, to welcome them to Vejer and share with them what I love most.

  • Debra's architectural masterpiece is truly sensational. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the wonderful space that Debra has created. Debra was extremely helpful, providing us with local restaurant and other recommendations. We would highly recommend Debra's house and Vejer in general.

  • We had a warm and wonderful welcome by Debra. She made us feel at home from the start. Her house is impressive in the way she restored and decorated it.
    A perfect place to explore Vejer and its surroundings. The view from her terrace was stunning.
    Debra was a real support, she knows 'everything' about Vejer.
    A place to remember and to visit again.

  • Debra's house was the perfect place for us to unwind after a busy time back home. The house reflects the thought and attention that makes it so beautiful and unique. We really enjoyed the town, the tapas and the local beaches but most of all the many wonderful mornings and evenings that we spent on the roof terrace.

  • The place is spacious, really beautiful, gorgeous roof top. It's perfectly situated near the ancient wall. It is quiet, only sometimes the nearby bar is a bit noisy in the evening. All in all: We enjoyed our stay a lot!

  • What a fabulous house and a perfect host! The eclectic layout, functional kitchen, and spacious terraces with spectacular vistas of Africa and the Barbate delta provided an ideal base from which to explore the town and its captivating surrounds. As for the enthralling, picturesque village of Vejer, we thoroughly enjoyed our brief affair and could have happily entertained the notion of something more substantial. The community, the yoga, the tapas bars, the hiking and biking, the food the landscape, the views, the everything! The total experience was exceptional..... Muchas gracias to the vibrant, soulful and energetic Debra for making our stay in Vejer De La Frontera a very memorable and educational stay.

About
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!
