Built in the 60’s in a sought after lower part of Salobreña Old Town, amongst Spanish neighbours, the house is unusually spacious for its location, luminous and with good proportions, approximately 75 sqm. The property benefits from being a 10 minute walk (600 meters) to the sea front, and 5 minutes walk to the town centre, where a municipal market, large supermarkets, banks and shops are found. The property is located in a particularly quiet cul -de sac with no traffic noise. There is car access to the front door, at street level.
All is included so you can relax: kitchen utensils, fast speed WiFi, bed linen, towels, a welcome pack of food and of course, immaculate cleaning. Following recommendations from tourist and health authorities, before your arrival we will have laundry-cleaned linen, towels & cloths; deep cleaned sofa & rugs; and disinfected frequently touched surfaces such as light switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles & remote controls.
The house is arranged over two floors and two sets of stairs, conveniently separating the living and sleeping areas.
On the ground floor, stairs lead into a large open plan kitchen, a living room and a terrace. The terrace has a southeast orientation, receiving the sunlight from the morning until well into the afternoon, ensuring protection from local winds, and a mild & pleasant temperature inside the property all year round! White laminate floors, original stone walls, a generous corner sofa, vintage table and lamps, air conditioning /heating, ambience lighting, books, WiFi, a 65´SmartTV… even an original school blackboard!
Downstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms with HVAC overlooking a quiet pedestrian street, a metro tiled bathroom with an extra large shower, and a toilet. If staying with small children, safety gates in stairs can easily be fitted. With a queen size (150cm) bed and two single (90cm) beds, the house can sleep up to maximum of 4 people. We also have a baby cot.
Car is not essential, but advisable for those who wish to explore nearby towns and beaches. Parking spaces are generally found at the end of the street, and on the parallel road, Ladera de La Cruz. Parking can take longer to find during the Summer months, Easter and Christmas. A bus (number 2) runs from the modern part of Salobreña through the Old Town, past Al Salam, and up to the Castle.
As a Spaniard spending most of my time in London, Salobreña has all I am after whenever I go back to my country: authenticity, great weather, & beautiful surroundings. In 2005 I decided to look for a town house with potential until I found this one. I now enjoy decorating it to make it a comfortable, safe, spacious and stylish home in which to spend a holiday. The last major upgrade has been carried out in April 2019 fitting a wooden floor in the living room, but I keep introducing small improvements all the time.
You guessed it - this is not a beach apartment nor a villa with a swimming pool, but rather a charming town house in which to feel part of town life, a privileged base from which to explore the Costa Tropical, a calming space to work from, a safe place to retreat after a day out.
