About David and Jacqui Cullimore
We are David and Jacqui Cullimore and along with our 3 daughters and to a lesser extent 3 pet dogs run Vine Ridge and also the other properties we manage or help with bookings for our friends. Our desire to move to Spain was fuelled by the better quality of life and also to give our 3 children the opportunity to be fluent in another major language, whilst giving us the chance to work for ourselves in a great industry , who doesn't love a holiday and we meet all our valued guests in one of their happiest and most relaxed time of their year.
David and Jacqui Cullimore purchased this Studio in 2008
Why David and Jacqui Cullimore chose Comares
The atmosphere of the area coupled with the stunning location. This is the real and untouched Spain, great value prices in bars/ restaurants etc, with stunning views all round. Vine Ridge has flexibility and allows us to meet guests needs from single travellers to extended families and groups of friends, fairly unique as a rental. WWW.VINERIDGERETREATS.COM
What makes this Studio unique
This is one of 2 stunning rentals at Vine Ridge Retreats. The lovely 8 x 4 m is our private pool but shared by both rentals and that is likewise with the Jacuzzi. So we have a maximum of 5 guests.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Lovely place !!!
Fantastic views,David and Jacqui great only problem was weather wasn’t great,accommodation was lovely
Thank you for a lovely review and yes sadly this lovely couple were a bit unlucky with the weather, hopefully we will see them back and the Sun will as per normal be out.
Wonderful place, we will go back next year , I think this says it all.
A great couple who have never been back to the same places twice , so to know they wish to return is indeed very special , it always makes us proud to get repeat guests and recommendations and to know we have picked a stunning area of inland Spain to live and share Vine Ridge Retreats.
Great views and all you could need in the apartment. Lovely hosts and very informative about the local areas with some great recommendations. Short distance to Comares and not far to Torre Del Mar for fantastic seafood at the chiringitos.
A great couple and so pleased they enjoyed what we offer at Vine Ridge Retreats, lovely to able to experience the rural side of Spain but only be 30 minutes from the beach, partly the reason we chose to start our business here.Hopefully we will see them again soon.Thank you once again.
Amazing views. Hosts friendly and helpful.
Truly amazing views. Helpful friendly hosts. Comfortable studio. Car advantageous as slightly isolated. Table mountain restaurant highly recommended. Camino del Rey a must for walkers.Overall a very enjoyable stay if you're looking for something other than a beach holiday.
These were lovely guests , totally relaxed in the tranquil environment and loved the views and local village, thank you for a great review.
What a delightful place for our December escape! The location is idyllic- quiet with amazing views of mountains and sea, a perfect place for those who love both. Comares is an utterly charming village with interesting history. It’s a nice walk up the hill from Vine Ridge. The studio apartment was lovely and comfortable with internet and all we needed to cook.
David and Jacqui were very kind and full of useful information about the area and activities. The dogs really helped make us feel at home. Despite the chilly mornings the pool was great for a refreshing dip, followed by a warming soak in the jacuzzi.
Many thanks to our wonderful hosts, we hope to return soon!
A lovely review from a great couple who 100% understood what Vine Ridge and this incredible part of Spain has to offer all year around.
The new addition of the Jacuzzi has helped offer valued guests a place to relax and soak up the views in the off season and our 3 friendly dogs always offer a warm welcome.
Thank you once again, all out reviews are appreciated.
Not to be missed
We spent a wonderful week at Vine Ridge. Before we even arrived we knew it would be special.The drive up the mountain was an adventure and quite exhilerating the higher we climbed.wonderful reward arriving at Vine Ridge. The views were spectacular and right in front of our studio. Wonderful to wake up to each morning.David and Jaqui are brilliant hosts so helpful and informative. Charlie, Bruno and Chico are a delight greeting us each morning,although the doggie biscuits may have helped. The pool area is really lovely and you can float about and take in the view or catch an eagle on the thermals. The poolside bed is a great idea. We laid on it at night to watch the stars and saw two shooting stars in one night. The studio was bright,modern and spotlessly clean with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We are not surprised folk return all the time Vine Ridge is certainly a wonderful experience and we highly recommend it
A review we are very proud of and I think pretty much sums up what we aim to offer at Vine Ridge, all I would add is that we have the added bonus at Vine Ridge that you can walk up to the stunning village of Comares in about 30 minutes.
Thank you once again to yet another lovely guest.
Comares is a picturesque 'blanco' village uniquely nestling 739 metres above sea level, with amazing views from the sea to sierras.The village is reachable within 1 hour from Malaga and 1hour 20 mins from Granada.
Within the hour the amount of attractions available are numerous and diverse ranging from walks to go-carting , pony trekking to water parks ,beaches to historic cities , Spanish bars to English cinema , Air -condition shopping centres to cobbled street villages and golf courses to sandy beaches.
Nerja with it's quaint beaches and famous caves is also only 1 hour away and you can be parked and skiing at Sierra Nevada within 2 hours.
If you simply want to relax then the Andalucian countryside lends itself wonderfully to picnics, birdwatching , star gazing , painting and dramatic photography .
Many people are amazed as to the flexibility of this region of Spain which allows such a 'varied vacation' to be easily achievable within its boundaries .
