Where do start? This home is stunning with incredible views of Gibraltar and Morocco. The pool is private and wonderful. The deck off the master offers incredible views and is a wonderful place to lounge with your coffee in the morning or a book in the afternoon. The location is perfect - access to great restaurants and beaches within walking distance and a short drive to explore Gibraltar or take the ferry to Tangier. Paige was the most accommodating host with recommendations for restaurants and an introduction to Aziz, our private tour guide in Tangier. We can't wait to go back! You will not be disappointed.”

What a stunning home we were so privileged so stay in over Christmas - perched high on a hill looking onto the most stunning views. The property was extremely spacious & spotless. A spe ial mention for the local town Sotogrande - lovely restaurants & great ambience. Highly recommend ”

We rented El Nido for a small gathering (my mum, my sister, me and our two younger daughters). It was perfect. Plenty of space for everyone, an abundance of seating areas and astonishing views. I could quite easily have just stayed on the Deck of Dreams all day but felt like I should go down and be sociable :) We walked down to town each evening for dinner (plenty of choices both nearby and ten minutes further walk at the marina) and sometimes for the beach or groceries. Easy walk down and not too bad back up! The villa is well equipped with plenty of everything, it has an air of generosity which makes for a relaxing environment. Everything was clean and working. ”
