My wife and I stayed at Casa Gaia for a 4 week period during Feb 2018 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely apartment. Everything was exactly as described on the website and contributed to a wonderful relaxing stay in El Cotillo. The apartment had everything we needed and we had been advised via email by owner Lola in advance that the only thing we would need to bring was mosquito repellent and sun cream. Normally we would take such advice with a pinch of salt and bring the usual tea, coffee, salt, washing powder etc. but we needn't have bothered as indeed everything we required was provided. The apartment benefits from a good sized balcony leading off from the two bedrooms which was great to enjoy the sun in the morning. The spacious roof terrace was our usual spot to relax and take in the sun in the afternoon. The balcony has a table and chairs along with a settee, seat and coffee table and the roof terrace has a table, chairs as well as sun loungers and cushions. Even sun hats are provided if needed! The bathroom is equipped with a great shower with virtually instant hot water. A washing machine is also provided which is a great bonus. The living room/kitchen is well equipped and is clean and tidy. The apartment has a great view of the sea from either the living room or the upstairs terrace.

The only issue we had during our stay was an initial problem with the wifi but this was resolved by the owner Lola after we contacted her.

El Cotillo is a lovely spot with beautiful scenery along the beach towards the lighthouse. The old and new harbours are within a 10 minute stroll away and are great for stopping up at a café for a coffee and cake and engaging in some people watching. There is a fantastic choice of good quality restaurants including Sottovento, Azzurro and La Ballena. For snacks and light lunches Ocean Deli and El Mentidero offer great value.

If you would like a quieter break away from the normal tourist hot spots then El Cotillo is certainly worth a try and nowhere better to stay then Casa Gaia. We would certainly love to return! Incidentally we had our deposit returned promptly within 7 days of checking out.

Perfect apartment, perfect location for first family holiday abroad

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip away wth our 9 month old baby and Lola did everything to ensure our stay was perfect. She was highly communicative and accommodating from the moment we made the booking. The apartment is so well equipped! Only things you need to bring as clothes, toiletries and travel adapters! There are plenty of spaces to enjoy the outside- the solarium and balcony both being wonderful lazing spots. The view from the lounge to the sea is perfect. Our baby enjoyed the spacious travel cot (large brought to accommodate a sleepyhead grand) and the highchair. We stayed in November and did not find the appartment too hot- 27C. I imagine Lola would provide fans if needed in the summer months. The pool was beautifully maintained, but is worth noting it’s not heated (24C) so we managed to buy our baby a wetsuit from Lashares which she also used daily in the beautiful morning lagoons at the beach 2 mins walk from the appartment (the best beach!). Only thing for me that would improve the appartment would be to put up a second blind in the east facing twin room to block light in the morning- we had a travel black out blind for our baby so it wasn’t an issue for us. Oh and the WiFi is a little slow/intermittent which just meant we spent more time talking and enjoying or environment that spending it on the net! :)

The location is superb- El Cottillo is perfect if you prefer a more relaxed, less touristy holiday that still has plenty of amazing seafood restaurants and places for cocktails whilst watching the sunset over the sea. The appartment is 2 mins from a supermarket, a great cocktail bar, brilliant eatery and in our opinion the best beach in el cotillo. We loved it and certainly hope to return!

Thank you Lola for sharing your little paradise getaway with us! Memories made forever! X

Little gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 weeks and found it a home from home. A clean, well cared for apartment with every utility you could wish for. I would recommend it to anyone.

The location is great. Really close to the superb beaches in El Cotillo and also to the supermarket and restaurants. Nothing to complain about at all.
