On arrival 3 massive and out of control dogs surrounded the car. Once we had got past them, we had to wait 4.5hrs for the cleaner (owner of dogs) to finish. She hadn't cleaned the floor so we had to get on our hands and knees to sweep and mop - her 3 dogs hadn't helped in terms of the...

I am sorry you felt this way.. we changed the sheets twice for you that week but it seems that was not enough.. the cleaner is normally very good and we have not had any complaints in the last 5 years other than sometimes her dogs can get over enthusiastic..

We stayed at the Wallpaperhouse in August. The Location is stunning, beautiful views over the Sea to the moroccan coast. Very romantic and secluded, you only hear the birds and the wind in the trees. The House is thoughtfully designed, Even though it does get pretty warm when all doors are closed. The downside ist that the House definitely needs...

We stayed at the Wallpaper House in April. It was absolutely lovely. It is in a secluded location on the edge of the Natural Park, with amazing views to Morocco from the terrace. Boston Beach House is close by but both are secluded, lovely and tranquil. There's great walks on the ridge into the park from the doorstep, with fantastic...

Amazing place . Breakfast on the terrace with a cooling breeze , lazy mornings in nearby Tarifa town , long lunches and afternoons on the best beaches in Andalucia , then a glass of Cava back at the Beach House . Will be returning without a doubt this year , it was utter bliss .

Not quite on the beach - but the views from the mountainside down to the coast were beautiful. Set in the midst of a national park, we stayed in the smaller of the 2 houses - the Boston beach house - having found it via Trip Advisor. The house itself is open plan - a beautiful, airy retreat which is...

This is our second visit to Boston Beach house. The location,design, ambience remain fantastic but my comment would be that shabby chic is delightful but faulty sun beds and a knackered BBQ are just that!!

We stayed at El Concho with our twin girls of 9 and 17 year old son. All five us had a really lovely relaxing time and loved the position - surrounded by nature, cliffs, eucalyptus trees, with beautiful sea views with Tangiers twinkling in the distance at night. El Concho is very simple it's design and amenities - but it...

This is one of the most wonderful places I've ever stayed. It's so romantic my boyfriend decided to pop the question and we got engaged at El Cancho, with the stunning backdrop of the Med and Morocco. It's beautiful, tranquil and relaxing. It's hard to find anywhere like this to go on holiday anymore. Its simplicity is so appealing. You...

Awesome place to stay for a couple or maybe a couple with a kid. Although there are two double beds, you're essentially in one big, partitioned room so there's virtually no privacy. The only door is on the bathroom! For a couple its wonderful. You're up on the hillside with views over to Africa and down to Tarifa beach. You...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Two contemporary pre–fab beach houses perfectly positioned at just 250 metres from one of the best beaches in Europe, yet at the same time very secluded - a place of real tranquility - due to their location within the Natural Alcornocales Park. The attractions of Tarifa town are 3km away; once a Moorish stronghold, the town retains these influences, but is now better known for its international ambiance and world-famous wind and kite surfing. The property 'El Cancho' - so named for the razor-ridge outcrops that run through its 1-hectare plot - the houses are staggered down its grassy hillside and nestle in an ampitheatre of rock topped with jagged pinnacles and native pine forest. Positioned high above the well-known Hurricane Hotel, El Cancho offers possibly the best view in the area out to the Straits - where the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea meet - and with the minarets of Tangiers twinkling only 14km away. ... more   less
