LUXURY SEAFRONT HOUSE IN GREEN OASIS, PRIVATE GARDENS, HUGE POOL PLUS DALI!

San Feliu de Guixols House Rental Photos and Description

3/4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, AC, Wifi, and easy access to enormous communal pool

At our house we have the best of all worlds - luxury, space, relative peace, enormous pool but with easy access to the shops, the beach and the rest of the Costa Brava, including the three major Salvador Dali buildings - his house, Gala's 'castle' and the Dali Museum itself.

Our beautiful, very spacious, house is set in a discreet development next to beautiful pine woods and directly overlooks the sea.

It is one of the largest houses in the development, with living accommodation arranged over three storeys and is of a high quality specification and design. It accommodates up to six people very comfortably indeed. We limit occupancy to six deliberately as we want to keep Maremar beautiful for guests.

You will also be thirty seconds from the enormous shared swimming pool, set in landscaped gardens, with all its delights.

The house boasts a very spacious living room with two three-seater sofas, dining area and full width glass doors leading out onto the large terrace and private gardens with their fabulous views along the coast of the Mediterranean and out to sea.

There are dining tables accommodating six people comfortably both inside and out, although you will doubtless want to spend most of your time outside.

The American kitchen is modern and well equipped. It is especially good for convivial gatherings as the cook is not excluded from what is going on in the living room and beyond. We love to cook and have equipped the kitchen accordingly.

We have three double bedrooms...

The master bedroom is very large (the full width of the front of the house), with balconies overlooking the sea, the front gardens and the pine woods, and a luxurious en suite bathroom in travertine and marble.

The second, to the rear of the house, overlooks the landscaped gardens and the woods.

The optional 'rooftop penthouse' double bedroom up on the second floor is virtually as spacious as the master bedroom and has direct access to the rooftop solarium, also looking out to sea. You can choose whether to use this as a bedroom, as another sitting room or, heaven forbid, an office!

Finally, we have a twin bedroom, overlooking the gardens with two single beds.

This means that the accommodation can be configured to the needs of any six people. So as to maintain the quality of this property, occupancy is strictly limited to six people.

All bedrooms have luxury mattresses, duvets and linens that we like to use ourselves.

The family bathroom has a bath and shower and there is also a separate downstairs shower room. We believe in 'fluffly' towels and have kitted out the bathrooms accordingly (but please do not use them on the beach!)

As mentioned earlier, on the second floor, there is a private solarium where you can sunbathe in seclusion, looking out to sea from time to time and saying hello to the seagulls as they go by. The solarium is off a large space which can either be configured as the 'penthouse' bedroom or as a large chill out area.

We have equipped the house for our own use. This means that we use high quality fixtures and fittings such as Bosch, Miele, Hansgrohe, Phillipe Starck etc. All rooms have been individually styled with solid oak flooring and high spec tiling etc.

We have two lawned areas, one directly off the terrace and another down some steps, past the ancient olive tree at ground level. So you are spoilt for choice of aspect when it comes to sea and coastal views. At the rear there is a wide gated drive which will take two cars easily. It is flanked by borders containing native flowers, bushes and small trees such as an almond, a fig and a tall cypress (the Catalan symbol of welcome).

The communal pool is about 50 metres from the house and is about 20m long and six to eight metres wide (it is an unusual shape!). It is in lovely landscaped gardens with lawns (for sun bathing after a dip) and conifers.

We have a 'pool box' which contains beach towels and various pool toys/games which you are welcome to use. If you like to SWIM rather than just splash about in a tiny pool, then this is the place for you! There is also a paddling area to one side of it for tiny tots.

Sant Feliu de Guixols is a mere 5 minute drive away or 15 minute stroll through the woods or along the coast road. In the summer months there is also a tourist 'train' which travels along the coast and up to the house, so you can easily get a lift down to the beach or the shops!

We have had guests who have decided to base themselves completely at the house, sun bathing, swimming and taking the occasional stroll into town, with the most exciting thing they have done being the walk down some pretty precarious steps to the bottom of the cliff and the beautiful cove below.

But if you are more adventurous there are many more things to do and see than you can cram into two or three weeks. You never have to stop!

We are resisting cluttering up the living area with TV etc. But our high speed Wifi access means you can stream whatever entertainment you wish to your own devices. And the Bose stereo system plus books and games available have been all that we have needed for a real chill out.

The place is beautiful off season too, bringing other charms to bear such as the wild sea, the complete peace and the chance to use the fireplace in the living room. Sant Feliu's strapline is 'open all year round' and this is absolutely true with, for example, Carnival taking place in February.

In April you can hunt wild asparagus in the woods and late summer is the time for a wild variety of mushrooms.

We love coming to Maremar ourselves. There is really not much more we can say!

We are a semi-retired couple who have a few properties to offer our discerning guests from around the world.

We love travel, cooking, music from everywhere and the arts.

We love passing on gems of information and little bits of what we call 'magic'. After all, it is these things that make a holiday memorable.

We like to ensure that our guests have the best time possible at our properties and do not get dragged into the mundane aspects of staying in a self catering property. The only shopping you should have to do should be fun!

Lucy Noble purchased this house in 2003

This property provides a luxury experience rather than a cramped one, giving you the very best of both worlds for a beach holiday. Sant Feliu, the town, the life and the beach are a very short distance away. But our house is in an oasis of relative calm and tranquility.

You have clean sands, rocks with crystal clear waters, cork woods, pine woods, wild asparagus, posh shops all in one small area.

You can stay put or wander around seeking Art, history, architecture, nightlife, cuisine or whatever takes your fancy.

We come here for our holidays and want to share the experience with like minded people who want a little more luxury from a seaside rental.

Much more space, comfort and facilities than most other similar properties - or at least that is what our guests have been saying!

Access to the guest only areas of our website which tell you what's on and where and also gives you lots of tips and ideas for things to experience, see, try and taste.

Being self employed, we always used to work from here. So the Wifi is reliable and the top floor can be used as the most charming, out of the way, office if you have to work! But it's also great for meditation, yoga, or just chilling out.

High specification decor and facilities.

Unparalleled, uninterrupted views of the sea and the length of the coast.

Very large pool - excellent for people who want exercise and space rather than a place to splash about in.

All the benefits of a beach holiday without many of the drawbacks, noise, cramped surroundings, discomfort!

With Sant Feliu de Guixols you have a real, authentic Catalan town and we can help you make the most of it. This is not a 'holiday resort' with all the attendant noise, bad behaviour and tourist traps. Many guests comment on how great it is to have a real Catalan experience but in a place where foreign guests are understood and welcomed.

9.5 of 10!!!

We had a great stay at Maremar. The views were terriffic, the house comfortable and well maintained, the terrace was ideal for enjoying leasurely breakfasts, excellently designed shower in the master bathroom, very quiet at night, many good restaurants in town, close to the beach, Girona, and just over an hours drive to Barcelona and Camp Nou. One point to be aware of is that the house is at the top of a hill, so a car is essential. The weather was in the low 20s (Celcius) most of the time and very comfortable - and there were even a few people (Scandanavians?) swimming in the ocean. We can highly recommend staying here and even our children gave it 9.5 out of 10. Thank you, Peter and Lucy.
Owner's Response: Dear Julie and family,

Thank you very much indeed for you generous feedback! It is great to receive such a review from an October stay (we too love Sant Feliu de Guixols in Autumn).

Sant Feliu is equally alive in winter, what with Christmas, New Year, Three Kings (which is always really special) and Carnival in February (with the bizzare festival which is the "burial of the sardine (!!!!)).

We do get mixed feedback as to how necessary a car is (see other reviews). My sister has stayed at Maremar without a car and she uses a taxi to get back up to the house with shopping bags, which is the main time you miss having a car. And of course in the Summer months there is the Tourist "train" (on wheels) which always goes as far as the Ermita and quite often up to Maremar itself. But there is no doubt that walking up to Maremar from Sant Feliu is an uphill event!

We are so pleased that your children enjoyed Maremar, especially the pool. hen we heard they were swimming in October we were very impressed indeed!

Thank you once again for your kind words,

We look forward to welcoming you again to Maremar.

With warm regards,

Peter and Lucy

Comfortable, well equiped home with a great view

As described this is a very spacious and light house with a great view. The rooms seemed bigger than the photos indicate. We were a group of three couples meeting for a reunion and there was plenty of space of all of us. We loved sitting on the terrace for breakfast and dinner. It was also very relaxing to lie on the loungers reading a book and looking out ot sea.
The house is very well equiped and was very comfortable with good quality furnishings. It was refreshing to have a music system rather than a TV and the CDs were great. It was clean and well maintained and Lucy sent us lots of information about the area, things to do and info about the house.
Sant Feliu is a proper town with some great restaurants and bars. The market is a delight. It is a great centre for exploring Catalonia by car, boat and bus. We hired one car between us and took it in turns to walk to and from town. The walk is 15 minutes down and 20 minutes up throught the woods.
Thank you Lucy and Peter, we had a great week and will certainly recommend Maremar to friends. We hope to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Kay and friends,

Thank you so very much for your wonderful review - we are delighted that you enjoyed staying at Maremar as much as we do - ah yes, the view!

It is such a great place for a reunion such as yours. Comfort, conviviality and yet enough space to do your own thing.

I think we have mentioned that we love September/October ourselves in Sant Feliu. It is still very active and there is lots to do, but without the peak of tourist crowds you tend to get in July/August (although, even then, it's not too bad because it is a living town and not so much a "resort"). There is so much to do, see, taste and experience all year round and I guess that's why we landed there!

Thank you also for your kind words re our telling you what was on in and around Sant Feliu de Guixols. We do have a bit of an inside track, knowing locals etc and we want to share this with our guests to make sure they have all the choices they can to have the best time possible.

We look forward to seeing you again - you were exemplary guests and are welcome back any time!

With warm regards,

Peter and Lucy

This outstandingly situated house exceeded all our high expectations (unbelievable view, spaciousness, short distance to beaches and city, beautiful pool area as well as quiet and peaceful residential complex) and matched the detailed description on its homepage .
Magnificent equipment allows the occupent to relax and enjoy the stay right away. The manager contributes to this by his outstanding customer service.
As a result of our amazing experience we will firmly recommend this house to good friends and relatives.
The near surroundings give the inhabitants numerous possibilities to organize their leisure time.
Owner's Response: Dear Jörg and family,

Thank you so much for your very generous review of Maremar. And thank you for being such marvellous guests - you are welcome back at any time!

We also love the location and design of Maremar. It is perfect for people like us all who want a calm, comfortable base from which to enjoy the Costa Brava and further parts of Catalunya. And there is so much to do, see and experience at any time of the year.

We work hard to keep Maremar like a very comfortable home from home which is why we have it exactly how we want it to be when we are there. We are delighted that you like it too!

With warm regards and very best wishes,

Lucy and Peter

Does what it says on the tin!

Lucy and Peter could not have done more to make our stay more enjoyable. There was lots of information on the house and the area, and even an info pack on Barcelona.
The house, with a great outside eating area with magnificent views of the coast a few feet away, was very well equipped, comfortable and clean. The huge pool, although shared with a number of apartments, was never busy as there was the option of the beach nearby. The town of St Feliu is a gem - unlike some of the other very built up towns along this coast, no buildings over about 6 floors, lots of old character buildings, and a great daily fresh food market. There were lots of good restaurants to choose from, and although it was busy, being August, we had no problems getting a table.
We would recommend this property to anyone, but both the pool and the town are particularly suited to families
Owner's Response: Dear Rob, Carolyn and family,

Thank you so much for your great review of Maremar - we really appreciate it. And thank you for being such wonderful, considerate guests.

The feedback we are getting from a lot of guests is that our location is very authentically Spanish - not a typical resort at all. And Maremar gives you the comfort (and relative peace and quitet) whilst having great proximity to the festivities and fun. We want our guests both to feel at home and to be able to enjoy what is different and wonderful about Catalunya and it sounds like you did just that!

We too spend a lot of our time out on the patio when we are at Maremar. It is so relaxing to watch the colours of the sea change and the boats/ships on the horizon.

We are so glad you enjoyed Maremar and would love to have you visit us again.

With warm regards,

Peter and Lucy

Our luxury four bedroom home, arranged over three storeys, is situated in a small, peaceful, yet modern development overlooking the sea just a short distance from the lovely town of Sant Feliu de Guixols (a fifteen minute walk into town through the pine woods or along the coast road).

The house has its own private garden with an ancient olive tree and use of the communal facilities including an enormous, beautifully shaped, swimming pool (with separate paddling pool) in its own landscaped gardens.

Our house looks out directly onto the Mediterranean so you can enjoy unparalleled views along the coast and out to sea, watching boats and cruisers go by and the fishermen's lights as their small boats serenely 'chug, chug, chug' at night.

Sant Feliu de Guixols is a relatively wealthy, staunchly traditional market town on the Costa Brava. Although it boasts every amenity, it has a village feel about it with a fishing port, lovely beaches, rocky coves, a marina, a lovely tree-lined promenade and a maze of narrow streets in the old town centre.

It has all the facilities you need but is unspoilt by mass tourism. It is popular with both Catalan and visitors from abroad as it combines all the best that Catalunya has to offer - sun and sea, fabulous food, a relaxed lifestyle, art and design, museums and historical monuments and easy access to all that the region has to offer.

The curved sandy beach in Sant Feliu is wonderful, with easy swimming protected by the port's breakwater. And just around the headland to the next bay of Sant Pol lies another fabulous sandy curved beach where Catalan celebrities come and moor their boats offshore to take the sun and swim and then eat in the wonderful restaurants along the beach front.

And don't forget the multitude of coves you can get to down cliff paths or by boat, with the opportunity for snorkelling in the crystalline waters.

It is only a short drive to each of the three Salvador Dali museums (the main museum in Figueres where a lot of his work is displayed, his house in Cadaques (which is a must see) and his wife Gala's castle/home in Pubol).

The Greek and Roman settlement of Empuries is also close by, and the medieval villages of Peretallada and Ullastret.

Or just visit the delightful Costa Brava fishing villages such as Calella de Palafrugell, Tamariu or Llafranch or the fishing port of Palamos. Platja d'Aro with its bustling night-life is only a 20 minute drive away. You will be spoilt for choice.

Catalunya is rightly famous for its food. In the Sant Feliu markets you can find locally caught fish, seasonal vegetables and fruit so self catering can be a real delight. Or go to one of the many restaurants along the seafront promenade, on the main Rambla or in the narrow streets of the old town.

Sant Feliu is a town that is alive all year round with a large weekly market, plenty of shops, restaurants and bars to cater for all tastes. It holds many festivals throughout the year and in July/August hosts a spectacular summer festival with live performances by top names in the specially erected tent by the port or in the Monastery Gardens.

And if you fancy a trip to Barcelona for the day, it is only about 100km away (1.5 hours by car) with bus services from Sant Feliu and easily accessible train services too.
