A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Joxean's place for 2 weeks this summer and very much enjoyed our stay. The flat was clean, bigger than we expected and really nice to live in.

Joxean was a lovely host, welcoming us with cheese and cider on our arrival!

We got lots of tips from him, several ideas of trips we wouldn't have made otherwise. Bilbao was fantastic, and very easy to reach by train (the station is 5 minutes from the flat). We also traveled to San Sebastian and little places by the sea like Zarautz and Getaria, one of our favourite spots during our stay.

When we weren't travelling, we enjoyed very much Deba's beach, quite long and with lots of waves for the kids.

All in all, it was a fantastic stay. Not having a parking space was indeed a problem, but we never spent too much time searching. In the end, we walked or took the train anyway.

Thank you Joxean for such a lovely stay !

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking your time to fill your review in. I give some suggestions to better know the real basque way of life, that don´t appear on common touristic brochures. When my guests tell me about their interests I can make better recommendations to satisfy them.

Great base for 4 adults, 3 kids in Basque country

  • 4 of 5

A fantastic host with great local knowledge and a nice location in Basque country add up to a winning formula at this well-appointed flat in Deba. The only challenge with this property was finding street parking as everyone in Spain seemed to be going to beach towns amid the heat wave. If you stay at Joxean's place, you have to take him up on his recommended lunch spots at small towns in the nearby hills, and the 15 K hike from Deba east to the next town is stunning - cliffside views and lush farmland made this a highlight of our trip. The local beach in Deba is nice, and far less crowded than the understandably popular beach at San Sebastian.

Outstanding Location in the Beautiful Basque Count

  • 5 of 5

I, my fiance', and my two youngest children (college age) spent a week in Deba in this apartment and highly recommend it as a vacation spot in the delightful Basque region of Spain.

Arrangements with Joxean, the owner, were smooth and pleasant. He greeted us upon arrival and treated us to local apple cider and cheese followed by an extensive discussion of the attractions in the region, complete with tons of brochures and helpful maps.

The apartment was perfectly sized for our group and had all the amenities we needed. It was very clean and well kept.

The location is good. I estimated an 8 minute walk to the beach, 1-3 minutes to markets, restaurants, bars, pharmacies. and the train station.

Great beach with surfers and occasional topless woman.

A pleasant 50 minute train ride will take you to glorious San Sebastian.

The fantastic Geopark is nearby with outstanding hikes which take you to magnificent views of the unusual coastal regions.

Finally, I must say that Joxean, our host, is a delightful, gregarious man who is an enthusiastic supporter and explainer of Basque culture, food, and attractions.

Our last night I asked him to join us for dinner at the restaurant of his choice. Two of our party went hiking that morning and had not returned by 8 PM that night. Joxean helped us by talking to the local and regional police and showing up in person. When the hikers returned we all had an outstanding time at Urberu Sagardotegia (Cyder house Urberu), an authentic cider house in the hills nearby (to which Joxean commandeered a taxi there and back)

Joxean showed us how to obtain unlimited cider directly from the barrels with spigots that spewed forth across the floor. The monkfish and steak were outstanding!

Deba has almost no American tourists. We were often asked by residents why we had come there. The people are very friendly with varying amounts of English spoken. It is a delightful place to stay off the bean path of tourists.

Owner's Response: What can I say after a so kind review? I got my aim, guests satisfaction. Thanks, thanks a lot! My guest had invited me to dinner last night with them before two of their friends delayed their coming back after having been hiking. The rest were worried. I went to Deba and communicated local and regional police the description of hikers, but finally they appeared in last train. Apparently they had been hiking in some areas beside the sea without phone service supply. What a better way to celebrate it than retaking our previous plan and I booked a taxi which is for 9 people and went to Urberu Sagardotegia, a typical cyder house where they serve perfectly grilled natural and fresh products. It was a lovely time and I will miss them.

Great base for a family holiday.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and very spacious and had everything you might need for a stay including things for the beach, although looking a bit tired in places, especially the patio.. The town is lovely and the beach is great - very clean and great waves, although it does take longer than 5 minutes to walk there - at least 10. Joxean, the owner provided a very good customer service. He is very accommodating and a mine of tourist information about the general area.Beautiful part of Spain too. Good local restaurants both on the beach and in town, all recommended by Joxean. All in all a good week.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, even if I don´t understand what does "it is a little tired - decoration wise" mean. The outside space may be the terrace, which is 11 m2, and I admit that my walking is much faster than average.

Good base for beach holiday in a lovely small town

  • 4 of 5

Very good base for a beach holiday in a lovely small town, perfect for young children. The apartment is clean and spacious and has every facility you might need for your stay including things to take to the beach. The only cons are that it is a little tired - decoration wise, the outside space had limited use, and we would definitely say it takes more than 5 minutes to walk to the beach - 10 at least. Joxean, the owner, is very helpful and accommodating and a mine of tourist information about the local area. Beautiful part of Spain too.

Family of four, parents and two teenagers

Property description was accurate down to the essential Wifi.

The apartment was clean and well maintained. Joxean met us and advised on all the tourist information leaving a supply of brochures on the attractions etc. Joxean was available to phone is required. We would return to the apartment.

We travelled to Bilbao, San Sebastion, Getaria and Gernika arriving back in time to visit the beach. We travelled by car and train, the station being about 200 yards away.

Meals in the square were good value and we enjoyed the Zahato Bar/Cafe.

The area reminded us of a much warmer Donegal (Irish County).

Owner's Response: It's a pleasure reading that you would repeat the stay in my apartment, because that's my aim. If you want to know the real Basque Country, here you'll find it, in a small and safe town close to the cities.
