About the property

Mirador Del Estrecho

A haven for a great family holiday, this 6 person/ 2 bath / double Jacuzzi luxury villa has a private infinity pool and is set in the borders of a national park with breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Morocco. You will not be disappointed.

The swimming pool is salt based (instead of chemical chlorine) and provides you a carefree and great swimming experiences.

Only 100 meters from the sea with plenty of walking activities including stunning coastal walks with some great fishing spots as well. There is also whale and dolphin watching nearby should you want to see these amazing animals.

If that sounds a bit too strenuous you can choose to spend your days lying by the pool listening to the sound of the waves of the Atlantic as they crash gently on the shore.

Large covered terrace with sitting area overlooking the pool, garden and the sea. Modern, bright interior. Floor to Ceiling Glass Windows from living / sitting area onto terrace giving panoramic views of the sea.

Five minutes drive to the nearest beach with several restaurants and bars. Please note this is the nearest sandy beach however there are several coves with pebbly beaches within direct walking distance of the villa.

Getares around the corner (5 minutes drive) and Tarifa (25 minutes) with the great food and drinks, and peaceful and quiet and very Spanish experiences

If you want complete relaxation we can arrange for a massage or reflexology session by a qualified practitioner in the comfort of the property (cost not included in rental price).

Guests will have access to the whole property. The living space is approx. 150 m2 with an 500m2 garden, including infinity pool and 3 terraces and balconies

I am available to deal with any queries arising during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Even our house in Germany is beautifully too with lot of huge glass fronts. But what is missing is the view to the ocean. That was breathtaking good. Thanks a lot for all. We will miss it and hopefully we will be back sometime in the future. Brigitte and Juergen

Note: The villa has great views and is built against a mountain slope. Therefore: The car is parked below (Private in the garage inside the property terrain) and from there you need to go up about 25 wide and easy steps to the entrance of the house. This is for most people not any problem, but if you have reduced mobility or if you hate stairs, then please consider carefully if this place will make you happy. Note that the villa is in a natural park, therefore there are no shops and only 2 restaurants directly at the villa within walking distance. All you may need though is within 5 minutes drive, but I just want to make sure you know.

Fantastic Location and Service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over Easter 18. It was well located overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar and the mountains of Morocco - great place to vessel and bird watch the day away with a cold beer or two! The facilities were really good. Marcel and his support team was very attentive both before and during the stay including a welcome bottle of chilled Cava and a cake on my birthday . The toilet paper issue turned out to be no problem after all. The local restaurants were OK. Tarifa was especially good and in particular the outside bar at the Dos Mares on the beach - a real hit with my grown up family.

Thank you Marcel for a wonderful holiday!

1. Marcel is a fantast host. His communication is A+++++++ 2. Example - Marcel's wife was in labour when we arrived and he still managed to contact us with vital information about our stay. CONGRATULATIONS Marcel and your family on the new arrival. 3. The property is amazing and the views to Africa are incredible. 4. The property is a good drive from most places. I love driving so it wasn't a big deal but for many the twisty roads in and out will be a challenge. 5. The restaurant in town was very good and we would recommend. Other than that, we didn't eat close by. We ate far out of town or went to the Supermarcado for some supplies. 6. Our kids loved the pool. 7. We loved watching the kids in the pool and looking at Africa. 8. After we booked we were told we could not flush toiled paper. At first this was very foreign and off-putting to us, however, it turned to not be a big deal at all even for our 12, 9 and 4 year olds. 9. Ultimagtly we recommend Marcel and his place. 10. Marcel - A+”

We spent a week staying at this fabulous villa and it was great. The accommodation is as described, very well kitted out with everything you would need. The view from the pool area overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar is breathtaking and watching the raptor migration overhead was amazing. Tarifa is about half an hour a way and is well worth a visit. The booking was very straightforward and Marcel the owner was very helpful throughout.

Casa de ensueño en la que te relajaras como nunca en pareja o en familia. Espectaculares vistas, piscina preciosa y para los peques hasta juegos para poder jugar, no falta un detalle, tienes utensilios hasta para hacer tartas y presentarlas.... perfecta! Por las noches puedes disfrutar de las vistas del estrecho mientras te tomas un champagne en su estupendo jacuzzi, las habitaciónes y decoración top! Jardín, barbacoa, hamacas, terrazas, Wii... unas vacaciones como en casa pero en un paraíso. Y lo mejor la atención y los detalles por parte de Marcel, Veronica y su simpática madre Ana. Un placer haber podido disfrutarla y esperamos poder volver y visitaros cada año! Muchos besos desde Alemania!

Just spend a week at the villa, the location is simply stunning, the pictures look great but no picture can ever do justice to that view. Over the sea to Morocco, we sat for hours watching the sea, sailing boats, large birds coming over amazing. The road in and out is a challenge so we did stock up on the supplies, my brother in law is a bird watcher and was in bird heaven, we saw Eagles, vultures, buzzards and black kites all coming over the hills or over the straits only yards above the villa decking areas. Pool was a bonus as it is a bit bigger than it looks on the pics and a nice temperature. Nights skies are great and also watching the lights come on in Morocco from the bottom decking. There is a very good restaurant on the bottom road below the villa, which also has a large more casual bar / pool area down stairs. The check in and out was easy and Marcel was there to go through the various systems. I think the description of the villa is very accurate but as I said no pictures will ever do justice to that view it's simply stunning.

About the region:

The Costa de la Luz provides a welcome contrast from the development of the Costa Del Sol. Endless unspoiled beaches set against a backdrop of rolling hills provide the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries. You can choose to be on the beautiful beach all day, lazy by the pool or explore the natural parks, Spanish / Andalucian city life, nearby pueblos blancos and or the nightlife of Tarifa. For a change, you can easily take the ferry to Morocco (35 mins) to explore another continent! There are also several golf courses within easy driving distance.

About Punta Carnero and Getares, Algeciras:

Punta Carnero is within a natural park, whilst still close to the Andalucian city of Algeciras on the one hand, and surrounded by national parks on the other hand. There are endless walking activities and also the opportunity to fish should you wish. There are some amazing cycling tracks and horse riding is also available nearby. There is also a water park nearby. Tarifa is 15 minutes by car and boasts some of the best windsurfing and kite surfing in Europe.
