We’ve been working hard over the festive season to bring even more options to you for your activity holiday accommodation choices. Over the past few months a few people have asked for more choices along the “B&B” lines – something a bit less formal than a full on hotel experience, but still with quality rooms, decorations and still close to the beaches and the old town.
Well, Julie has managed to find an absolute gem in Casa Roja – the Red House. This is a super casa, run by Manuela, her partner Alvaro and Kana the labrador.
All the boxes are ticked, as it is just 10 mins walk into the old town, and the same or slightly less to the beach and water-park. And, as always, with our activity holidays staying here we take care of all the transport to and from the activity sites, so you have no driving or parking worries while on holiday. The house is decorated superbly in a traditional Andalucian style, with local themes and colours used throughout. All the rooms have been named after the locally grown tropical fruits such as Chirimoyas, Granadas (pomegranates) and Mangos.
The house has a two floor layout, with communal areas in the upper level and the bedrooms and accommodation in the lower level. The living room is surrounded by a lovely terrace, from which you can enjoy the views of the tropical crops and the surrounding mountains. The spacious gardens of the house contain the swimming pool for summer use. There is also a barbecue area for your use while you stay – and you are also welcome to use the kitchen whenever you wish, which is well equipped with everything you need during your stay.
Casa Roja easily sleeps 14 px – with a further 2px able to be accommodated on sofa style beds. There are five spacious bedrooms, all air conditioned and decorated and finished to a high standard, with three of them having double beds with terrace (Granada, Mango & Aguacate), one of which (Granada) has a sofa bed so can accommodate 3px.
A further 2 twin rooms (Chirimoya & Papaya) are furnished with two single beds, and again one of these is also available with an additional sofa bed / folding bed for occupation for 3px.
There is also a further large “bunkroom” (Guayaba) which is fitted with with bunk beds. This sleeps up to 4 persons and is offered on a shared accommodation basis, or it may be reserved for dedicated use for children’s occupation or small groups subject to availability. This gives great flexibility as it is ideal for, say, two families with families as you can park all the teenagers in their own bunk room!
All rooms share two separate bathrooms: one of them with shower and a bath, the other with shower. Television is available in the living room, with some English channels such as BBC News, CNBC. Full tea & coffee making facilities as well as a large fridge are available in the kitchen, which is always available for your use.
The house is conveniently located in the Los Pinos area of Almuñécar, and has super panoramic views over the chirimoya fields in Rio Verde towards the mountains of Sierra de la Almijara and the Valley of Rio Verde, yet as mentioned is only a short 10 mins walk to the beach or old town – even less to the feria where the Friday and Sunday markets are held.
