BARGAIN XMAS 2011 DEAL!
30 PER CENT OFF. Dec 24 – Jan 2. See Rental Rates. £1500.
Park your vehicle at the top of the steps and wind your way down the many steps to the gates of the casa. Open the front door and you are greeted with the feeling of being on a boat, as all you can see is the ocean. Change into your swimsuit and jump from the rocks or from the steps into the sea. Snorkel and dive in the clear blue water.
During the Spanish Armada, it is said that a galleon sank and many divers now search the bottom for gold coins. The casa has lovely terraces overlooking the sea and an infinity pool on the edge of the rocks, which is private and secluded. Watch dolphins swimming in the bay and enjoy hours of snorkeling from the luxury of one's own house.
Casa Shalimar is a perfect artists/writers retreat. The interior is decorated in an eclectic, shabby-chic style, designed to be a comfortable home, not a show house...

GOOD FOR KIDS, BUT AS THE HOUSE IS SET IN RUGGED ROCKS, MOST OF THE HOUSE DOES NOT HAVE RAILINGS, SO IF CHILDREN ARE SMALL THEY MUST BE WATCHED. YOU CAN LOOK AT THE SITUATION FROM THE PHOTOS...moreless

Our favorite vacation spot EVER
Our favorite vacation spot EVER
Owner easy to work with. Accurate description. Clean. Helpful owner when making reservations. Beautiful views. Wonderful outdoor patio for eating and relaxing. Able to jump off the rocks right into the sea and also soak in the pool. Felt like our own private resort. One of our family's favorite vacation spots ever (parents with 3 teens). Also a nice 10 minute walk down to the village for fresh market food and bread each morning. The village is MUCH less touristy than typical southern coast. We are from California and not use to the rocky european beaches so the villa with its own pool and ocean access was awesome. Plenty of towels, kitchen stuff. The master bed was broken our entire trip but owner was nice to compensate us for the inconvenience and planned to fix it right after we left. If our family ever goes on a nice beach trip this would be our family's #1 choice. I would be careful staying here with little kids - easy to fall off the cliffs. Our kids, 13-18 yrs old were old enough for it not to be an issue. They would come here again in a heartbeat.

This villa is beautiful. The interior of the house is well appointed but the outdoor spaces is where this villa shines. If you like spending long lazy days beside the infinity pool sipping sangria; stopping only to enjoy snacks or dinner and wine around the outdoor dinning area while taking in breathtaking views; then this house is perfect. The village is friendly and idyllic, with charming restaurants and pubs. The beach is a short walk down the hill away and is nice but rocky. For sights, Granada is a short drive away and is bustling and historic. Almunecar is closer good for large groceries (like LITL). The complaints are few and minor, for instance, bring your own rock shoes as the house only has two pairs (which are small) and your own snorkeling gear since the house is limited. There is a wide and eclectic array of crockery in the kitchen, but it's missing some pieces like pizza pans and bottle openers (get twist-off or canned beer). Most of the sleeping pillows are down, so watch if you have allergies. There are only 6 lounge chairs for a house that sleeps up to 8 (one of which is a bit broken) but only 4 chair pads. However, these minor things soon fade away as soon as you step into the sun. For an ultra-relaxing holiday where I can get through the books I've been meaning to read, catch up on my sleep, work on my tan, or wander the village; I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Absolutely amazing place to holiday. The views from inside and outside of the villa are very impressive. The owner of the property has obviously spent a long time collecting furnishings and designing the interior and exterior of the property giving it character and elegance. We found the property managers extremely helpful and arrived to find it very clean and tidy property. The infinity pool offers great views and the terraces offer long days in the sun. With great shops and local produce in La Herraudura the villa is only a short walk to town. No hesitation in recommending this property and experience.

THE VIL WAS ABSOLUTLY SPECTACULAR FROM ENTERING THROUGH THE FRONT DOORS WITH THE OCEAN ENGULFING YOU. THE WHITE MARBLE THROUGHOUT THE VILLAS AS WELL AS THE ROMANTIC MASTER BEDROOM.THE OWNERS AND CARE TAKERS TAKE GREAT CARE TO MAKE YOUR STAY EASY AND STREE FREE. AND THE OUTSIDE TERRAZA AND POOL TOTALLY RELAQXING AND BREATHTAKING! THE ENTIRE AMBIENCE WAS TRULY MEMORABLE FOR ALL 4 ADULTS.LOCATION TO TOWN WAS A NICE WALK.EVERY DAY WAS PARADISE!!

About: We love the house as it is like a Morrocan Castle on the sea. The sound of the sea has a calming, almost magical effect and the village is just five minutes walk away. It is a truly unique property which we consider ourselves very fortunate to own and has also provided much inspiration for one family member, who has written more than a dozen published books while staying at the house.
Why Costa Tropical - Granada:
The house's close proximity to the sea made it a dream property. It has all year round sunshine. The village is fun and even has a lovely market in the centre. It is close to the historical city of Granada. It's less than an hour from the airport. Basically, it ticks just about every box you could imagine.
