Our house looks out over the pool and the sea. From the windows and terrace, you can watch sunrise and sunset, follow the fishing boats and may even be lucky enough to spot dolphins just off the coast. On a clear day, you can have views across to Africa. You can see the coast from Motril to Punta de la Mona and all the surrounding mountains. La Rijana is entered through a remote controlled gate and positioned just below an ancient Moorish tower, in a peaceful, residential, exclusive area of Almuñecar, known as Los Pinos, (The Pines). It consists of 14 houses, most of which are second homes and so it is generally extremely quiet. The communal pool (10m x 8m with Roman steps), which overlooks the sea, is open all year. The house has rustic floor tiles throughout, is double-glazed and is equipped with AC and heating (modest use only). Fans are also provided for the bedrooms. The well-furnished lounge/diner has remote controlled TV, DVD, pay-as-you-go Wi-Fi and a Hi-Fi (jack socket / bluetooth for ipod etc). There is a collection of books, games, CDs and DVDs, together with a comprehensive information file. Please note that all UK channels may not be available. International channels are not available and no programme information or advance schedules are included. The kitchen, with granite surfaces, has induction hob, combination convection/grill/microwave oven, washer, large fridge-freezer, electric kettle and toaster, French coffee press etc and in addition, is well supplied with crockery and glassware for indoor and outdoor use. Despite the fact that here is a washing machine, I find it much easier to go to Speed Queen launderette at Calle Cristobal Colon 2, where you can wash and dry very cheaply in less than an hour and with help from the lovely attendant! Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms, all with sea views. The master bedroom, with king bed has an en-suite bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms have twin beds (bedroom 3 with a stow-away bed). There is a second bathroom. Both bathrooms have WC, shower, basin and bidet. Patio doors open onto a terrace which stretches over 2 sides, giving superb sea, mountain and pool views. There is a retractable sun canopy, teak dining table, side table and chairs and 2 sun loungers. The grounds • The house has its own parking space outside • Shared pool (10m x 8 m) with Roman steps • Gardens • Protected parking within gated community Please note: All guests must agree to abide by the rules of the residential community and the house and agree to respect the property and other residents. No party groups are accepted and noisy and irresponsible behaviour is also not acceptable. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VFT/GR/0095More

Many thanks for your very positive and comprehensive review. If I weren't there already, I'd definitely want to go!!

The house is in a great location, out of the bustle of the town but only a short walk to some wonderful restaurants. There are lots of water activities on your doorstep and only an hour from amazing Granada.

Thanks for your great review. For once we've had the opportunity of behaving like holidaymakers too, as all the family are out. We've spend 3 glorious relaxing days at different beaches and feasted at the beach restaurants!

Thank you for your kind comments and well done for spotting the dolphins this time - I obviously need to be a bit more watchful when I'm taking breakfast on the terrace! We look forward to your next booking with us.
