What a fantastic place, idyllic location, wonderful accommodation and a fabulous welcome. Will be visiting again later this year with friends and would recommend Yurts Tarifa to everyone. Date of visit 21/6/2017 for two nights.
We booked to stay here at Yurts Tarifa in September 2016 across my wives 30th birthday and it is a really beautiful, well appointed site and the yurts themselves are very clean and spacious. The whole site is very well looked after and Saira and Denny have done an amazing amount of work to make this place stunning. The beds are comfy, the shower areas are spotlessly clean and lovely to use and the kitchen area is really incredible, with use of a cooker, gas barbeque, plenty of glasses, cutlery, crockery, utensils, pots and pans etc.. We had our toddler with us and she loved playing on the trampoline and ‘fishing boat’ in the small play area, and she loved meeting all the animals – Noche the cat, Bob the dog, Pedro the donkey. And then she also named several of the animals we met whilst around the area too – ‘Monday’ the white horse in the field with Pedro, ‘Acorn’ the friendly old retriever who walked us halfway into town along the dust track, plus other assorted ‘Turmeric’ the cow, ‘Billy’ the goat, ‘Leaf’ the frog etc. It was very kind of Saira, and her children Leon and Layla to show us their chickens and guinea pigs etc... Saira also arranged the kindest act by baking us a birthday cake, and due to allergies, intolerances and the after affects of cancer treatment she managed to bake us an amazing birthday cake which I very much appreciated and my wife enjoyed (along with myself and our daughter) free from gluten, dairy and soy. Worth every penny and so accommodating to our requirements, she really made an effort to help us and it was a wonderful cake – and very well enjoyed too! It was evident that nothing was too much trouble. We met some interesting and lovely people staying in the other yurts, and the relaxed atmosphere extended into the town of Tarifa – a nice collection of old town and modern amenities. Plenty of places to eat including Saira and Denny’s very own tiny vege restaurant. We also ate at the Eco Cafe during the day and both were reasonably priced and good value. A small beach by the port was okay, and travelling slightly further afield with transport was advantageous as the beaches close by was large and beautiful – and very windy – take a wind break, or wind surf! We would definitely recommend staying here for a nice relaxing break…
I was a bit apprehensive when we booked as we are not really campers and I was unsure about sharing a bathroom. We booked because the place looked interesting as did the eco ethos and it was really good value. The site is beautiful and each yurt has its own area to sit in which I really liked. The yurts are large, really comfortable and very well serviced. They have an electric supply and electric lighting. The large double bed was clean and really comfortable in fact the yurt was amazing. I had wondered if it would be really hot inside but it was really well ventilated particularly with the Tarifa winds. There is an element of sharing. The two bathrooms are shared with the three yurts and the kitchen dinning area is also shared. We were fortunate that the couples we shared with were considerate and friendly. I will start with the kitchen: It was large, clean and really well stocked with everything you need. It is joined to a beautiful seating / dinning area and comes with a dedicated black cat and sometimes Bob the dog. The bathrooms are also clean and well serviced with plenty of hot water. I would have preferred that there was a bathroom per yurt but it didn’t spoil the stay for me to share. Saira and Denny were charming hosts and have done a fantastic job in providing a high quality site whilst maintaining their dedication to looking after the environment. I happily joined in with recycling and saving water and energy without feeling pressured into doing so. The site is down a fairly long unmade road and is a couple of kilometers out of Tarifa. This was no issue to me, in fact it was a positive but might be an issue if you have no transport or want to be right in the town. All in all we had a fantastic stay which included a superb takeaway from Saira’s restaurant, and we will return in the future.…
Thanks to Saira and Denny for a wonderful couple of days! I recommend this place to anyone that wants a relaxing break away from the Spanish hype! Yet only 10 mins drive from central Tarifa. The Yurt was perfect. Comfortable and tastefully furnished and cool at night. Kitchen and bathroom put my own to shame! Loved all the resident animals too. Your finishing touch of fairy lights everywhere made it a really magical experience! Glamping is truly the way forward!
Loved this spot. The yurts were very large and well appointed. There is a kitchen on site with a refrigerator and stove and storage space for food as well as utensils and dinnerware. Next to the kitchen hut is a covered patio for eating and just relaxing after a day of exploring. There are two shared bathrooms that are large with walk in showers that are hot and inviting after a long day. If you are adventurous and looking for something out of the ordinary this is for you. If you are looking for luxury you probably want to look someplace else. It is beautiful and comfortable, and relaxing.
My husband, daughter and I stayed at the yurts for 4 nights recently. These are in the most beautiful setting with great gardens and furnishings in the yurts themselves. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a relaxing break with a rural feel yet only 5 minute drive from town.
We had such a fantastic weekend at the yurts with two other families! Looking forward to our already booked next visit! A place to make memories, relax, and get away from it all! The owners could not have been more friendly. Kids could explore, adults could relax...We loved it!
The yurts are set in rolling green hills near Tarifa, great for coastal wallks or taking it easy with a good book. The yurts and facilties are beautifully designed and spotlessly clean. They are run by a friendly family and we loved being greeted by Bob the dog in the mornings. Thanks for the great stay and we hope to return. Nic and Al x
I can't recommend this enough. Denny and Saira's place was absolutely beautiful and idyllic. The yurts are specially designed by them and are lovely. Denny and Saira went out of their way to look after us and help us. I would say that it is worth thinking about how to get in to town and back and the evenings. It is about half an hour to walk and the track is a bit bumpy, so sometimes the taxis don't want to go down the track to the house. We hired bikes and the ride into town was easy and really enjoyable. Denny and Saira also have a restaurant in town which was lovely. The food is reasonable and really tasty. It was one of the best holidays I have had and I would attribute that mostly to the fact that the place was so lovely.
I normally approach any sort of camping with dread, I was really worried about the Yurts because it was really hot. What a fool I was, they were fantastic. They were spacious, nicely decorated and cool. We had breakfast next to the shared kitchen were we met a number of friendly people. Our hosts were generous with their time and really welcoming. The yurt camp was in an isolated area of beauty. There was a beach which was almost empty nearby and the town was walkable if you were feeling energetic. We had a brilliant time in Tarifa eating, drinking, swimming and whale watching. The whole experience was brilliant and so good that we intend to break a rule and return.
