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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Beautiful simple open plan house-perfect for a couple.Fantastic location with views across to Morocco. Was a good 15 minute walk downhill and across the main road to beach,not a problem for us but may be for others.Very light and airy and quickly cooled down once the doors were opened and the constant breeze in this area flowed through.This is a...

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... More

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... More
