The host was extremely helpful and accommodating. Nice location and charming home.”
Eight of us stayed at El Nido after a bike excursion in Portugal. It was so very relaxing. The house is perfectly laid out for multiple couples and has everything one needs. It is close to food, sun and Gibraltar. Evenings watching the sunsets and watching the lights come up on land and boats in the Med. Very nice. And then there is the Southern Cross in the October sky. Thanks Paige”
Spacious and inviting! Stay here during your next trip to Spain.
On your next (or first) trip to Spain, you have to put El Nido at the top of your list for accommodations! It is a 5-bedroom home with a pool, spacious kitchen and dining entertainment area. The decor is inviting and the pool is a lovely amenity. There is also a rooftop terrace with direct views of the Rock of Gibraltar in the distance. The sunsets here are absolutely unforgettable! Not only is the home just stunning, you also won't run out of things to do in this area. On my trip, I visited Cadiz, Ronda and Gibraltar. Due to the prime location, I was able to pack in so many memorable day trips. If you love adventure, then you must make a day out of El Caminito del Rey, a hike path that isn't for the faint of heart but does provide the most wonderful views.”
A beautiful property with a fantastic view! Communication was easy and responsive. We absolutely loved the layout of the home — a fantastic kitchen/dining area that open up the pool and wonderful deck off the master bedroom that provided a breathtaking view of the Rock of Gibraltar from the bed! Highly recommend and hope to return. Thank you!”
