Great sea-view, beachside apartment with large swimming pool, at the foot of the beautiful Getares beach.
Lovely situated in the strait of Gibraltar, with it's amazing views on Africa (only 14.3 km in a straight line from the apartment), the kilometers-wide sandy beach at the foot of the apartment, food and drinks, and peaceful and quiet and very Spanish compared to major tourist destinations.
The apartment has a fenced garage for your car. A car is nice to go around, but not needed as sufficient and many shops, bars, beach, and restaurants are within 200 (!) meters walking.
Public transport is sufficiently available, though not very frequent so that requires some planning (especially to airports)
We spent 5 nights in Marcel's apartment and found it to be a great base to explore the area and to just relax on the beach. The apartment is clean and light and just a very short walk to the beach, where there are a couple of restaurants and icecream cafés. We tried them all during our stay - it's quite a small village which was perfect to us. The pool was nice and clean as well, someone came every day to take care of it.
It was a real nice experience renting with Marcel. Quick to reply on any question and with good tips on places to go and see. The process of getting and returning the keys was also smooth.
The reason for not handing out 5-stars is simply that the balcony was too small to sit on, which to us is something we really enjoy to do, both for breakfast coffee and a drink at night. Now we only used it to dry our towels and bath gear.
Thanks for having us Marcel!
Nos hemos sentido como en casa, los anfitriones geniales!... muy atentos y pendiente de todo detalle para que nos sintiéramos a gusto.
El apartamento es tal como se describe en el anuncio, vistas geniales y todo muy limpio, comodo y con todo lo indispensable!! muy cerca de todo y a metros de la playa... sin duda volveremos y no dudamos en recomendarlo
We enjoyed our stay at Marcels. The apartment was exactly as advertised and the location excellent for day trips. Having a washing machine available was a real plus. We especially enjoyed the light and views from the apartment. Marcel made himself available to answer any questions. He was very attentive. We would recommend this space.
My host, who spoke English & Spanish, got in touch with me right away and helped me find the apartment location in the town. He referred me to two excellent restaurants. The location in Getares is very convenient to the beach and the delicious local restaurants & stores. Getares is a lovely, low-key Spanish coastal town, and the people there are very very nice. We enjoyed staying in this easy-going apartment while touring Gibraltar and the Algeciras region.
About the region:
The Costa de la Luz provides a welcome contrast from the development of the Costa Del Sol. Endless unspoilt 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 Getares, Algeciras:
Getares is surrounded by the Andalucian city of Algeciras on the one hand, and 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.
