Beyond fabulous! Staying with Mark and John was absolute bliss - like finding home in Spain. The house was beautifully decorated and inviting and we really enjoyed getting to know John and Mark - great company! John set us up with a delicious breakfast each morning (amazing coffee) and this kickstarted many happy days exploring the charming town of Salobrena, hiking in the beautiful Sierra Nevada, or simply relaxing. We'll be back!

My stay at Casa Carmen lived up to my expectations. The location of the house was perfect for exploring the old town of Salobreña and the views from both the bedroom and the rooftop terrace were amazing. My room was lovely with a very comfortable bed and it was a bonus to have a delicious breakfast. I saw little of Mark but John was pleasant and helpful, even meeting me from the bus on arrival so that I wouldn’t have any difficulty in finding my way to the house. I visited in mid-October and the bars and restaurants closest to the house, and some of those on the beach, were closed but there were still plenty to choose from.

Response from Mark And John:
Thank you for your kind comments. Yes we acknowledge that car parking can be a little difficult on our street, particularly during the height of the tourist season and this was why we mentioned to you in our prior email exchanges "... generally there is adequate on street parking near our house. Be advised however, that some streets in Salobreña are very narrow so a small model car is best." Of course there is also the small free car park just nearby and also generally plenty of on-street parking in other streets and roads close by. We're glad you enjoyed your stay!

we were made to feel very welcome by our hosts, john came to meet us in the town and led us to the property. Their house is in a stunning location with fantastic views and the description is entirely accurate. The local area is quiet, beautiful and et within a classic Spanish white town. The standard of accommodation is boutique hotel quality wrapped up in an intimate bnb package. Excellent ! Best air bnb we have stayed in ,within 5 years of using the site.

Mark and John extend the warmest Andalucían welcome to you to their lovely home in the heart of the Casco Antiguo of Salobreña.

If you’re looking for calm, tasteful and tranquil surroundings with inspiring views in the heart of the old town: then look no further. Similarly, if you are seeking a bolt hole from which to go touring this beautiful region John and Mark will give all the help and guidance you need and they will set you up with a hearty breakfast with fresh orange juice and ground coffee (or teas) whatever you prefer. Whatever your needs are they will try to meet them.

Their professional pasts means that they can cater for many tastes and personalities, and the one thing you can be sure of is their desire to make your stay as joyous and memorable as possible. John has retired now, but Mark is currently working as a Cultural Attaché, and they are both dedicated to making sure your stay with them is an enjoyable one. You will find the bed linen is fresh and welcoming. The beds are the most comfortable; as are the pillows, and the shower room will more than luxuriate you.

The house is diverse and full of quiet areas, which offer opportunities for reading (there is an extensive library), listening to music, socializing, gazing at the views, lapping up the sun on the roof terrace or just simply relaxing and doing your own thing. Located at the foot of the 10th Century Moorish castle and a stone’s throw from some of the most popular bars and restaurants in the old town, and only a short walk to bakeries, markets, banks, shops and the beaches you have the best of all worlds. The views from the castle are splendid and the culinary treats, which await you, will seduce you to return time and time again.

This region in particularly famous for its seafood, the skewers of pulpo and sardinas cooked over an open wood fire down by the beach, washed down with your favourite tipple, healthily punctuate the plethora of joyous aesthetic distractions, which surround you. Or for vegetarians there is no shortage of gorgeous salads showcasing the plumpness of the local produce. And for meat lovers: you are never far from some of the best jamon iberico in Spain.

The winding wooden terrace steps, just in front of the house, that lead you up to the castle await: what are you waiting for?
