About Sarah McNulty

We are a family of 4 inc two teenages.We moved here in 2001 and haven´t looked back.We came for some adventure and a good- hearted place to bring up our kids & have not been disappointed.

The beauty, culture and history of Granada has kept us stimulated and we have all grown to love this place ,its people and the lifestyle .

Sarah McNulty purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Sarah McNulty chose Albaicín

We were stunned by the beauty and feel of the Albayzin on our first visit.Later we started to inquire about houses for sale. Our house was the first one we looked at and the search stopped there .It was only a shell but it had & has an atmosphere hard to capture in a photo.The previous owner was Laura de los Rios the niece of Garcia Lorca- Granadas famous poet.She bought it for its light atmosphere and privacy all rare qualities in the houses here.

It is our desire to live here in the near future. A thank you to all our guests for helping us in this quest.

Also we are very lucky to be able to drive to the door of the house as the Albayzin is a restricted zone & many of the cobbled streets don´t have access.To keep it quiet & traffic free our street has a barrier that is up between 11am -2pm & after 8pm( you can always exit!)If you arrive during these times just park up and walk down to the house-When the barrier lifts you can bring your car closer.

What makes this townhome unique

The Caves which would have been the original house . They are always cool in Summer and warm in winter we are very lucky to have them as an integral part of the house .

Our house is only a few minutes from the city center but above the pollution Also a few minutes from the sierra behind the Albayzin -for endless walks or cycling.

The incredible sunsets.

Unique, charming, and the best way to do Granada

  • 5 of 5

Just picture postcard pretty. It was comfortable and well-equipped, with plenty of room for five adults. (I do have to say that no one in our group found the “cave” bedroom very appealing). The neighborhood is great, with many good restaurants and shops. After stays in Barcelona, Madrid, and Sevilla, the Albaicín seemed a “world apart” in the perfect way. The walks to San Nicolas viewpoint and “down the hill” to the Old Town area are short and easy. There are plenty of buses and taxis to bring you back again. Love this house!

San Geronimo, Ca.

Great location to all there is to see. Very nice hosts. Funky, fun neighborhood. Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were there, my wife and I, with a daughter, her husband, and two young daughters. All had their own rooms. Plenty of space in the Albaicin neighborhood. This was a comfortable place to stay in one of the most unique neighborhoods we have ever stayed. Rich history. Narrow short streets to get lost on. Great views of the Alhambra from our two decks. We were here six nights. No complaints. Loved it.

Review of Calle San Luis, 14, Albaicin, Granada

  • 5 of 5

This attractive house in the Albaicin section of Granada is located in the old historic part of town. The house is convenient to the Alhambra, wonderful local restaurants, markets and central Granada. With its narrow cobblestone and winding streets, it is easy to get “lost” but also very interesting. Driving a car in this neighborhood is not recommended and access is limited. The area is hilly and could be difficult to navigate for someone with a walking problem, although taxis and buses are inexpensive and readiy availble to access the neighborhood.

The house was pleasant and full of character and contained everything needed for a comfortable stay. We were three female friends; the 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms gave us adequate privacy and more than enough space (we didn’t use the extra cave bedroom during our January visit). The kitchen was well supplied. We had breakfast in the house but ate our other meals out. Sarah and her husband, Bert, are gracious and thoughtful hosts. Many amenities were provided including coffee, tea and other groceries for us to start off with. Sarah was easy to communicate with and responded to all our inquiries in a very timely manner. On a personal note, I accidently left my presciption sunglasses in a local store. Sarah and Bert tracked down the glasses and mailed them back to me in the U.S. One couldn’t ask for more responsive people. In addition, our taxi back to the airport was arranged for us by Sarah and Bert; our driver, Pedro, was on time, helpful, efficient and inexpensive.

The only downside to this house for some people could be the stairs leading up to the main level and the stairs in the house from the main level to the bedrooms. The addition of handrails would be helpful.

Thanks to our hosts and this lovely home, we had a wonderful visit to Granada.

A Perfect Setting in the Albaicin

  • 5 of 5

The location of the house in the Albaicin was a perfect base for our visit to Granada. Located in the old historic part of town, the house is conveniently situated to many activities including the Alhambra, local restaurants, markets, and central Granada. With its narrow cobblestone streets, it is not recommended to bring a car. Taxis and buses are inexpensive and readily available to access this neighborhood.

The home was comfortable and full of character for our family group of 5. My nephew enjoyed sleeping in the cave! And the other bedrooms gave everyone else more than enough space to spread out and relax.

Sarah was a very gracious hostess. She was easy to communicate with and full of helpful recommendations for having an authentic Granada experience. She put us in touch with Rafael, a local architect who gave us a full day walking tour on the history of the Albaicin and Granada. I think he made a lasting impression on my nephew, a 4th year architect major.

The house contained everything needed for a comfortable stay. We ate out most nights, but decided to have a small family celebration on New Years Eve. We picked up provisions at the local shops and markets and had a lovely New Years Eve feast! We even watched the fireworks displays from surrounding plazas from our terrace at midnight.

Thanks to this lovely home and hostess we had a terrific stay in Granada and will return to this house given the opportunity.

Our group of four loved this house.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four loved this house. The location is excellent and the house worked very well as a base for sightseeing and also for relaxing and reading and enjoying the glorious views. Sarah has decorated the house tastefully and comfortably and the terraces and entrance give a delightful open flow through the house. October is also a beautiful time to be in Granada with snow on the mountains and clear, warm, sunny days. We had all our meals on the terrace. I highly recommend the house.

Homey house, steep stairs, interesting neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

The house was comfortable and homey, although the three levels and steep, slippery stairs are not appropriate for some guests. The neighborhood was interesting and authentic, with good restaurants, as well as convenient for scenic walks and local buses. Owner was helpful, but could have been quicker to respond to inquiries.

Owner's Response: Thank you Martha for your feedback and although our house is advertised as a town house it is good to have it re affirmed for those with difficulties on stairs. I feel I did my best by accommodating their early morning arrival , arranged a personalised tour from our house and booked a taxi for their departure . The hospitality of guests is my highest priority and always respond as soon as I possibly can to any inquiries
