The Studio and Apartment were opened in 2009 to a high standard but with realistic pricing to help people discover this stunning area of Spain.In March 2010 we have added an even better value pool side Studio to Vine Ridge

We have 3 children at local schools, 3 dogs , numerous Guinea Pigs and 1 Rabbit .

Our aim is to allow couples and families to enjoy the beautiful Andalucian surroundings ,which both 'Vine Ridge' studio and apartment are designed to achieve .

The views still give us the 'WOW' factor after 3 years of living here and we are confident that they will do likewise for you .

We can offer baby sitting and Taxi services and hope that all our customers holidays will be enjoyable and fun at a very 'Realistic' price .

About David and Jacqui Cullimore

We are David and Jacqui Cullimore and along with our 3 daughters and to a lesser extent 3 pet dogs run Vine Ridge and also the other properties we manage or help with bookings for our friends.

Our desire to move to Spain was fuelled by the better quality of life and also to give our 3 children the opportunity to be fluent in another major language, whilst giving us the chance to work for ourselves in a great industry , who doesn't love a holiday and we meet all our valued guests in one of their happiest and most relaxed time of their year.

David and Jacqui Cullimore purchased this apartment in 2008

Why David and Jacqui Cullimore chose Comares

The atmosphere of the area coupled with the stunning location.

This is the real and untouched Spain, great value prices in bars/ restaurants etc, with stunning views all round.

Vine Ridge has flexibility with 3 rentals to allows us to meet guests needs from single travellers to extended families and groups of friends, fairly unique as a rental.


What makes this apartment unique

Possibly one of the best views in Spain !

Excellent place and amazing value

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend the Cullimore's Vine Ridge for a beautiful,relaxing and fully equipped studio to come and stay. We have stayed there 3 times and are about to book again for next year. The views are stunning, it's quiet and once you've driven the track its no problem. David and Jacqui are perfect hosts, they are there if you need them but not intrusive. Elder daughter Gemma cooks fab homemade pizzas to buy that we can recommend if you fancy a break from cooking or going out. The dogs are so friendly and come for a visit every morning. Vine Ridge is excellent value for money, you will not find better. The outside area is big with plenty of seats and various bbq that we used almost daily on our last holiday. The double bed is lovely for star gazing. What more could you want for a truly relaxing holiday.

Owner's Response: A very pleasing review from a great couple who once they discovered us have started to become regulars and also introduce their friends to this amazing area of Spain. It is lovely that everything we have worked hard to achieve is appreciated by all our valued guests and recommendations and repeat business was always the first thing we were looking to achieve when we set up Vine Ridge. Many thanks once again.

Lovely couple, amazing views....loved the dogs!

  • 4 of 5

We were very well looked after by David and Jacqui. Beautiful views from the apartment and we loved the dogs, they made the holiday for our little boy! The apartment was lovely, with pretty much everything we needed. The track up to the apartment was pretty hairy but we got used to it. Comares was very picturesque and we loved the bar in the main square. Our only criticism would be that the outside/communal areas could in our opinion be neatened up a bit with regards to the sunbeds and bbq area. Otherwise we would highly recommend staying at Vineridge and would certainly return!

Owner's Response: A pleasant review from lovely guests and it is appreciated that they like the effort that all at Vine Ridge including the our popular dogs make to provide a great holiday experience, plus they enjoyed staying in the apartment which we are very proud of. The final 5 minute drive to Vine Ridge does lead to the stunning views and over the years all our guests just plod up and appreciate the end result, which usually leaves them speechless once the views are witnessed. We strive for 5 out of 5 at Vine Ridge so a little bemused about the communal area comments, as we are not sure why 8 sunbeds , 4 of which were new this year and 4 BBQ's ,3 which customers can move to their desired location and one which is big enough to cook for 10 guests alone , plus the very popular Victorian bed with Moorish influenced covers which guest seem to love is not to their taste, but feedback is appreciated. As per usual thank you for taking the time to write a review and I hope when they return we will be getting a 5 out of 5. Many thanks.

Tranquil paradise with internet access.

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice little studio apartment with a view out onto a beautiful valley. As with a lot of inland Spain, the views are stunning.

The property is easy to find and the track you traverse, to get to it, is pretty good (easily achievable in a Panda).

The pool is lovely, it is very quiet and there is a track that provides a pleasant walk up to Comares, a little village perched right on top of a rocky edifice.

For peace and tranquillity, look no further. Relax and chill.

I am an explorer, however, so my only minor gripe was that it is quite a long way from anywhere, though the more commercial coast (not really my thing) is not too far away. For the intrepid, there are plenty of mountain roads to explore and even higher villages but I would recommend Antequera's Alcazaba, via El Torcal Natural Park, which is beautiful in June. I also visited Ronda but that's a fair old distance but so worth it. There is a nice lake, to the north, but not much around it.

If I was the chilling by the pool type, this would have been 5 stars but I do like the historic architectural side of Spain so the remoteness was a massive plus but also a technical minus. The eating places, in Comares, were also reasonable with the one by the racket courts being the best.

Good shower, didn't watch the TV, played CDs on the DVD player. bed was comfortable. Good Wi-Fi.

Owner's Response: A great review from a well traveled guest and so many lovely points mentioned in reference to Vine Ridge, the local area and further afield. We would just add that if you look at our website under the "places to see section" we cover off everything from on our doorstep , to a 3 hour drive away and all in between. For example Malaga is the same distance as Antequera just one hour and the old part is charming and historic and Granada is only 2 hours away with it's world famous Alhambra Palace. So peace and tranquility but also history, culture and beaches are all achievable from Vine Ridge. Thank you again.

Great Owners, Superb Views, Very Homely

  • 5 of 5

From the beginning of the booking process David was always at the other end of the email to answer ALL my questions.

We arrived at the Villa and David and Jacqui were present to greet us. We have book an apartment and a villa just behind vine ridge (Petes place).

The apartment was very homely and had everything you need for a break, welcome pack was provided for a cuppa and the honesty bar came in handy (50c for a beer!)

Our friends arrived and had the villa, the villa is all lovely and shiny as you would expect from a new build, the pool and facilities are top class.

The drive in is an experience, but gets easier each time you do it. The drive is more than worth the stunning views.

I have to mention the dogs, I feel my soft spot was for the chico as he still has the puppy factor!

We made da day trip to Marbella and Puerto Banus with ease in the hire cars!

Owner's Response: A lovely review from a great group of friends that fully appreciated what Vine Ridge and our new 3 bedroom rental just above, that we now manage, has to offer. It was a pleasure to make the booking process easy and lovely to see that they enjoyed the area and our 4 legged friends. Thank you once again for a fantastic review.

'Vine Ridge' Studio and Apartment are positioned next to each other and although designed to allow for a individual holidays they also adhere themselves to be booked together, because in total can accommodate 8 in total. Allowing for large families to have an 'Excellent' Value for Money holiday whilst allow independence within each rental. As we are also family focused please don't be shy in asking for anything upfront which may make your stay more comfortable for your children , remember we have been there ! With the added addition of the New Pool Side Studio in 2011, we can now accommodate 10 guests in total, so even larger families or groups can be catered for. There is still the aim though for guests to have their own privacy which has worked well in the past but as like minded customer tend to come this wonderful part of Andalucia, the communal areas such as pool, do work well.
