Stayed: November 2012
My husband, parents, and 7-month old son stayed here for three days at the end of our 16-day trip in Andalusia. The owner Miguel, as another reviewer posted, is an extraordinary person and went above and beyond for us. He started off by calling to arrange to escort us to the property (since they were doing construction on one of the roads and the detour would be too confusing). I can imagine it would have been very difficult for us to have navigated the streets and detour without his help. When we arrived to the property he gave us a complete tour and showed us how everything works, and had indeed stocked the fridge and left a beautiful spread of fruit and snacks out for us! We inquired as to where the nearest pharmacy was (so we could get medicine for my teething son) and he generously offered to drive down and get the medicine himself and was back within minutes with the Spanish equivalent to baby Advil, just what we needed! Towards the end of our stay, I called Miguel to inquire if he knew of any medical clinics that were open on Saturday (my husband had a very rare and potentially life-threatening allergic reaction to OTC medicine he brought with him - which has never happened before). Miguel was such an angel - he called a doctor friend of his and within minutes was at our door with a cab and escorted us to the ER, helped translate, stayed with us the whole time, and even went to the pharmacy to fill a prescription while we checked out.
Despite all the medical chaos that happened in Granada, this was by far our favorite vacation rental of the entire trip (perhaps ever!!). The house is incredibly beautiful and well-equipped. It is just below the famous Mirador de San Nicolas (lookout point where people go to see the night views of Alhambra)...and so you essentially get your own private view from nearly the same vantage point - both from the top terrace as well as two of the three bedrooms. We had tired of going out to eat for every meal by this point in the trip so we cooked in for a few meals and also went to a few of the nearby restaurants. There is a small convenient store at the end of the street where we picked up more bread and some spices, but we had stopped at a Carrefour grocery on our trip in from Ronda to stock up as well.
We loved this place so much we've already talked about coming back during warmer weather (probably a whole different experience as it was too cold to use the pool and outdoor spaces much in Nov).
