Jaw Dropping Property on Spain's Costa Tropical
My wife and I have just spent and unbelievable week at this amazing property! I cannot say enough about Mara and all she does to make your stay as pleasant and perfect as it can be. The minute you set foot in the doorway you know you are in for a real treat. The interior of the house is more beautiful than the pictures. And from looking at the pictures that is hard to beat. As you move through the property it just keeps getting better. All the appointments she has brought into the house are just beautiful. Bedrooms, bathrooms, living areas. All are stunning with breath taking views from every room. Then you walk out onto the terrace and gaze out into the blue Mediterranean. I think I have found that " heaven on earth" place. The infinity pool is the exclamation point to this property. Its just Perfect.
Our week was highlighted by pristine weather. The location of the property is central to most everything you may wish to do. You are so close to so many things. We went hiking in the mountains just to the north and visited several of the quaint "Pueblos Blancos". Almunacar is a cute beach town full of fun and lively restaurants. Salobrena, which is just down the hill is a lovely town also with two pretty beaches and several nice dining options. Granada, an unbelievably cool town with the world famous Alhambra, is just a short 40 minute drive away. Perfect day trip. And then there were the days we just Hung Out. Although the house is located in an established neighborhood you will feel a sense of complete privacy.
As I mentioned earlier, Mara is a wonderful host. She will do everything in her power to make your stay an enjoyable experience. She is never more than a phone call away. I cannot recommend this place more. It is by far the most beautiful rental we have ever stayed in. Thank you Mara for this special opportunity.
Dear John dear Kris
I hope you had a good trip back. I don’t find words to tell you how much I appreciate your fantastic comment. Above anything I LOVE when my guests feel the essence of this special place who reaches the heart and the senses of the most exquisite souls! Yours are unique and I’m delighted to know that you were so happy in my home. Pass my blessings to your adorable Kris and I really hope that I will have the opportunity to meet you again! Huge hug to both of you and hasta siempre! Mara
A Special Place
Sometimes it is hard to say why a place is so special. It is the ancient mountains, the blue of the sea, the breeze, the birds, the trees. It is this house, the way it sits on the hill, it's design and it is Mara, her love of beauty, of peace, of the East.
An amazing week in a stunning situation, a beautiful Silver Anniversary and two very content teenagers. Thank you, Mara, we will never forget!
Dear Family J.
Thank YOU! These heartwarming and touching words go straight to my heart! I feel so happy that you've had such a magic time in my home celebrating and enjoying every second with your lovely family. I'm so greatfull that I was able to meet you all and please do come again, anytime! La Almendra Blanca will always be waiting for you :-))
Hasta pronto! Mara
This is such a beautiful place!! We had such a wonderful week!!
Mara and her beautiful home are both wonderfully warm and gracious! The view is the most spectacular we have ever seen. It was amazing to wake up to it every day. We slept with the sliding doors open to experience the beautiful Mediterranean breezes. The bedrooms are all private & the porches are lovely. The kitchen is fully equipped with various spices & supplies. The pool is incredible! We are a family of 7 plus a baby. Mara graciously allowed 7 rather than 6 and provided a daybed for our youngest son. Salobrena is a beautiful, charming and surprisingly "untouristy" town. We took day trips from our perch at Mara's place to Malaga, Morocco, Nerja & El Caminito Del Rey in El Chorro. An unbelieveable experience for our family! You will not be disappointed if you go!!
Dear Mary! It is with lots of joy that I go through your kind words. THANK YOU! It has been a great pleasure to meet your wonderful family and to have you all in my Villa. It's so nice to hear that you had a fantastic time here, this is the most important to me. I hope that you will be coming back soon and please send my warmest wishes to all of you, including baby Brooklyn :-)) Hasta prontoooooo! Mara
Paradise Found: Dream Villa Reality Better Than What We Imagined
It's challenging in the world of online exchanges to always be sure of what you are getting. Photos don't always tell the real story and you are never sure who you are working with. Let me assure you with 100% confidence that La Almendra Blanca is just as gorgeous and magical in person, if not more so. Mara, the owner, is incredible. We felt like guests in a friends home rather than renters. She helped us set up special plans and gave us advice, ideas and stayed in touch before and during our trip with any questions or concerns we had. I had trouble on my end with the bank transfer and she was overly accommodating, generous and kind. We had originally planned many activities during the week there but ended up canceling most to enjoy the beauty and serenity that can only be found in Mara's dream home. The views from every point in the house will take your breath away- you will feel like you are living in a photo shoot that is cozy and charming just like home. You must also go in to town and dine at La Bahia- an incredible place with wonderful hosts and a view you could only imagine in your dreams. Every corner and nook of the home is filled with beautiful pieces of art or fabric or plant life that Mara has loving curated over the years. The care and detail put in to this home are unparalleled. I have stayed in beautiful houses on four continents and this was by far my favorite. This home is forever etched in our hearts, as is Salobrena and mostly our dear Mara. The home has comfortable beds, great showers and all the little amenities you could want or need from a washer to beach umbrellas to a garlic press and more. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this home and honestly- words cannot accurately describe the magic this place holds. Do yourself a favor and book today- before I do! :-) Mara, my dear, we WILL be back! So many Besos and even more gratitude, thank you for sharing your home with us.
I can't express my feelings of joy and gratitude from reading your fabulous review. Being able to make you both happy was the greatest gift for me. Having you in my home and meeting such fantastic people has been a real privilege. Now I truly have a reason to cross the ocean and visit you one day!
Meanwhile I thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all your kindness and your loving words. My home will always be your home! Un beso enormous from Salobreña to California to both of you and for sure: hasta pronto! Mara
Beautiful villa in an amazing location!
Really gorgeous villa, exactly as described on the site. Views are amazing, and with everything you need. We'd go back!
Thank you Sally for your kind review! It was a pleasure having you in my home and I hope to see you soon! Best wishes to all of you
La Almenra Blanca
After looking at hundreds of villas all from Valencia to Marbella we chose the spectacular La Almenra Blanca. The booking process with owner Mara was simple. Always responding promptly to my emails. Mara was very helpful with directions and offering her assistance with activities in the area.
We spent one week from May 14 - 21, 2016.
We were greeted at the villa by Mara and she took her time walking us all around the villa, showing us where everything can be found. This villa was a dream to stay at.
The location on the top of a hill with complete privacy was perfect. We loved the typical Andulisian town of Salobrena with many shops and restaurants. We never got tired of the view of the sea, the castle, Salobrena and the Sierra Nevada mountains.
We have stayed at a few beautiful villas in Europe over the last few years and this one is by far our favorite!
Dearest Lynne & Family
Thanks so much for your words! I feel very happy that you had such a magnificent stay at my villa and that you loved this beautiful part of Andalucia, it is the best gift you can give to me!
I thank you again for your visit, your kindness (you are a wonderful family!) and also for the immaculate state of the property after your departure. It would be really nice to have you again at La Almendra some other time, or maybe I will jump over to visit you in Canada one day! I hope :-))
Meanwhile send my warmest regards to everyone, wishing you all only the very best! Hasta pronto
