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

Please note a end cleaning charge of 140 Euros needs to be paid locally upon check out. This is based upon decent check out. In case of an excessive need for cleaning, additional costs are calculated (15 Euro per hour additional cleaning) Also note: The villa has great views and is built against a mountain slope. Therefore: The car is parked below (at the street or at the garage inside the 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.

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.

Es war ein traumhafter Urlaub in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Die Aussicht allein ist schon eine Reise wert. Das ganze Haus ist sehr komfortabel ausgestattet und der Pool und der schöne Garten laden dazu ein auch mal einen ganzen Tag am Haus zu verbringen. Es ist herrlich ruhig und der Wind sorgt dafür, dass auch die Temperatur angenehm ist. Mit dem Auto kann man zahlreiche schöne Ecken Spaniens erkunden. Der Kontakt mit den Vermietern war sehr herzlich und unkompliziert. Jede Frage wurde in kürzester Zeit beantwortet. Wir kommen sicher irgendwann wieder.

Great stay and scores of options

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay. Marcel's home is in a spectacular setting, with a full view of the sea and surrounded by a national park...absolutely beautiful. As long as you are ready to drive, you have scores of options for day trips around Andalusia, and Marcel is ready from the moment you make a reservation to provide recommendations for what activities might best suit your family

Book the house now. Just do it! This house is the perfect combo of luxurious finishes and breathtaking views. We only had three nights there, but I easily could have stayed a week or two. The are so many outdoor spaces to curl up with a glass of wine and stare out at the ships passing by, and the clouds moving across Morocco. The kitchen is well fitted (decent pans in a rental-- finally!), just be sure to stop at the Carrefour before getting to the house, because once you arrive you will want to settle in and not move for a while. Marcel is an amazing host-- full of great ideas of where to go and what to do beyond what you will find on Trip Advisor. His mother-in-law met us at the house and was lovely and welcoming. There was a generous gift of fruit, wine and chocolates waiting for us.

Alles war fein

Wir haben mit unseren 3 Söhnen 2 Wochen in der Villa verbracht und jeden Tag genossen. Wir können die Villa nur weiterempfehlen und möchten die Hilfsbereitschaft und Freundlichkeit von Marcel und seiner Familie speziell hervorheben.

Next time I stay longer

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? With the view of course. As a boy I grew up with tales of Nelson and Hornblower, the Napoleonic wars and tales of men of iron sailing the straits of Gibraltar. The villa is on a point a few hundred feet above the straits! Walk a bit up the street an you can see Gibraltar, look out th bedroom, the living room, the hot tub, the pool and there is AFrica 10 mikes away. Once you get past the view, well appointed kitchen, lots of gadgets we didn't use, but if your a cook, you would be right at home. The master bedroom has a comfortable firm king size bed, a welcome change from hotel beds. Great shower, while I'm not a hot tub person, my wife loved the one up top of the house looking at the straits. If your outdoor focused, walk around the development and get up high and enjoy the views. Also, go to Tarifa, do not stop, do not bypass it. Cool beach town with lots of fun spots to poke into. While January is not swimming weather we saw many kiteboarders in the water having fun.

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.
