About Tim

Hi, I'm Tim. Married with a small 10 month old daughter. Love the outdoors and outdoor sports, nature, wildlife and beautiful scenery much aided with a lovely glass of Rioja whilst watching the sun set. A big reason why we bought this farm house - it absolutely ticks all these boxes. Living in London this is the most perfect place to get away for as truly relaxing break.

Tim purchased this house in 2016

Fabuolus pool with a heavenly backdrop

  • 4 of 5

This was a complete change of pace from our usual of holiday with 3 young children 8,6 and 4 and it worked really well. I loved the house and found it very homely with plenty of bedroom space for us to spread out. The lounge accommodation is far more confined - the wonkey 4 seater table was not sufficient for a house that accommodates 12. There is a larger table outside which seats more, however the wasps prevented us using that. The pool is wonderful and is a really good depth for younger children giving the flexibility to dive in and hone their swimming skills. The backdrop and views are spectacular. I felt the description of the location of the house was more than a little miss-leading. There is one bar 1km away from the house and it is a steep incline on your return so a short 10 minute stroll it is not. Also the nearest supermarket is a 20 minute drive away. I went to Blanca to shop as I found the journey less perilous than the trip to Ricote. Plus in my opinion a more interesting town. The motorway network is great, no issues getting to the airport however Alicante is more like a 1 1/2 hour drive. Make sure you get fully comprehensive car insurance - the car will take a bit of a battering going up and down the track to the house. Lost 1 star as the house is far more remote than described and also the wasps were a significant issue, which we did not encounter anywhere else during our holiday - the problem was confined to the property. Overall a great relaxing holiday in a stunning spot.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review, I have taken this feedback on board and where improvements can be made, they have. The wasp nest that was found during the stay has been removed by a professional pest company and now is not a problem. The 'wonky' table inside has now been replaced to hold a full family of 12. Regarding the dirt track and the car insurance...!! I have visited with my family over 10 times with a rented car and never had any issues with any car rental company regarding damage. Indeed no other guests have ever mentioned this as an issue. It is approx 750m long so if you drive slowly there is no problem whatsoever. Glad you enjoyed the stunning views and location. It is in the country and a peaceful location 10-15 minutes to the nearest town and I hope the description makes this obvious. Tim

Beautiful house in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this beautiful house. The views are incredible and you have fantastic walks and scenery literally on the doorstep. Half of our party are running/ climbing/ cycling enthusiasts and the other half just wanted to relax in peace and tranquility, this house was an ideal choice for all. There are many pretty towns and villages within reach if you can bear to leave the property. The house itself is of a very high standard and it really was a home from home. Tim was always available if needed and went above and beyond to ensure our holiday was perfect. Almost forgot to mention the amazing swimming pool. We loved everything about the house and area. Perfect! Thanks Tim, we'll be back!

Best view ever!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house at a very special location up on a mountain. We loved the remote location although Murcia is only 45 minutes away. Next to the house a hiking trail with the most spectacular views starts. Be sure to leave early in the morning because it gets really hot during the day. You will definitely be happy with the great pool with fantastic views. By the end of the day you get a spectacular sunset. Thanks to the wind in the mountains, the evenings are nice and quite cool. At night you will see the most beautiful sky full of stars. The house itself is cool even during the day. The interior is simple but tastefull and Spanish. The satelite internet was available near and in the house in all rooms. The speed was OK for the six of us. The pizza oven is great fun, the pizzas were delicious. Tim was hospitable, nice and helpfull from the moment of booking until after we left. He even came all the way from England to fix some problems the previous guests left us with.

We loved our stay!

FUIYEZ CETTE MAISON!!!

  • 1 of 5

passez votre chemin..

Maison très isolé de (village de Blanca à 15min de voiture) véhicule obligatoire avec hauteur de caisse car route non goudronné, ni éclairé, en pente avec des grosses bosses...

Tim Le proprio est en Angleterre (clés envoyés par courrier 2 jours avant)

Lorsque nous sommes arrivés en soirée nous avons essayés d'ouvrir la porte mais LES CLÉS N'ÉTAIENT PAS LES BONNES!!! Nous avons appeler Tim mais ne décrochait pas, pas de réponses à nos mails.

Nous avons appelé notre contact Donia qui est... au Maroc!!! Personne inutile..

Pas d'aide possible dans les alentours puisque nous étions isolés et rouler de nuit dans ces routes est dangereux

Au bout de la nuit (c'est à dire à 23h dans la nuit noir et fraîche ) puisque Donia (qui se plaignait de notre ton plutôt que résoudre notre problème) nous proposais uniquement de payer 1 nuit d'hôtel (sans connaître les lieux et savoir que la 1ère grande ville Murcia est à 1h de route) avec enfants et personnes âgées, nous avons menacés de poursuites car Le proprio insistait sur le fait que nous n'étions pas à la bonne maison et que nous ne savions pas ouvrir la porte...

Nous avons obligé Le proprio à faire appel à un serrurier qui est arrivé à... 4h30 du matin (longue attente dans le noir avec faim, soif et froid)

Le serrurier à changer les serrures.

Le lendemain nous nous sommes rendus compte que la maison est infesté de guêpes impossible de profiter de la piscine, ni terrasse, ni même maison puisque les moustiquaires des fenêtres sont troués

Nous lui avons demandé de faire appel à des deratiseurs, celui ci nous répond que c'est normal d'avoir des guêpes ce ne sont que des insectes (plusieurs d'entre nous avons été piqués)

Après insistance celui ci à fait appel à ces personne qui on évacuer la maison plus de 2h Le produit pulvérisé était nocif (encore dehors)

Le lendemain les guêpes étaient toujours la et elles Le resteront jusqu'à la fin de notre séjour)

Piscine SALE nous avons du nettoyer nous mêmes, pompes coupés sans mode d'emploi (piscine squatté car maison non clôturé)

José nettoyeur de piscine est venu jeudi 5 jours apres, mais a refusé à cause des guêpes

Je passe les problèmes (ménage limité, propriétaire inexistant, frais d'appels vers étranger, presque aucun réseau et wifi inexistant, sens du service absent etc)

J'ai des photos pour preuve de notre nuit dehors, des guêpes, de la saleté, des échanges téléphone mails WhatsApp, une plainte envisagé

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The key issue was simply that the previous guests sent back an incorrect set which I simply forwarded on to yourselves. This was a genuine mistake and as soon as I heard about the problem I organised a locksmith to sort it out. We now have a better secure place for keys so they are always at the property.
