I was born in Malaga, Spain of Australian parents, at the age of 18 I moved to Tarifa attracted by the windsurfing and was Spanish champion and also did the world cup, i was looking for a special place for many years and after living in the Costa de la Luz for ten years decided to buy La Casa de la Costa, at that time i meet Paco who has helped my family as a builder, gardener and above all as a friend. We run the Casa de la Costa and Casa del Estrecho together as a holiday rental house, so when i am not around Paco looks after everyone and I live part of the year in Australia with my family, and do all the bookings via email and organize with Paco the hand over of the keys to our clients via internet, we have been doing this for a while now and are both very happy to please our clients. Year purchased: 2000 Why the owner chose an apartment in this location After living for ten years in La Costa de la Luz, and looking everywhere for the perfect place, it finally came in the form of a run down finca (farm) just 3km for the center of Tarifa, immediately i saw the potential of the place, and although it is extremely difficult to get the refurbishing permits for building i went ahead, and after many head aches with local authorities managed to get the permits, and with Paco and myself built up the three houses on the finca slowly but surely, ten years later it was finished, La Finca de la Costa is considered to be one of the best properties in the hole of La Costa de la Luz (not boasting) and has THE BEST VIEW to Africa. It simply doesn't get better. The place is magical, situated between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, Africa and Europe. Unique benefits of the property Although just an 8 min drive from the center of town, but the last 800m is a dirt track which low sport cars can not access, but normal cars can access perfectly well, or a 25min walk, it seems like you are the only person in the world when staying at the property.Its the closest house to Africa and the biggest bird migrations pass just over your head (in season), as well as looking at the hundreds of different boats going through the straits of Gibraltar, sometimes we also spot whales and dolphins, and lots of space, no sounds of the modern world, just nature and peace, it is absolutely unique, words can not describe the place, one of the last unspoiled coasts in Spain, and there you are all alone!!! Just a complete relax without having to go to the Himalayas.
