“A perfect beautiful getaway”
Reviewed April 13, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Three of us stayed at the bigger of the two villas and we had a truly great time. The villa is beautiful and very comfortable. The three bedrooms are just stunning and the beds extremely comfortable. We all slept very very well. The villa was very well organised and immediately felt like home. Simply stock up the fridge, sit back, relax and enjoy. The views are great and it has easy access to so much to do and see in Spain. The pool is great and you can even spend the whole day there, without having to move very far at all as there is a fridge and everything you might need poolside. We didn't have time to use the BBQ, but we will when we go back. Casa Cruz is a real find and a lovely bit different from the usual tourist trails of Spain. We cannot wait to go back and take more people too.

“Just WOW!”
Reviewed December 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

My husband and I spent Christmas in the casita at Casa Cruz. Dave and Al were the perfect hosts and the accommodation is lovely. Everything you could possibly need in the house is available, from a 'welcome pack' on arrival, to towels and dressing gowns for guests to use both in the house and by the pool/hot tub. We were extremely impressed at our hosts knowledge of the area and they were only to happy to give us tips and recommendations about good places to visit. I can honestly say that we had the most relaxing holiday we've ever had - our only problem was that we only booked for a week and it passed far too quickly!!! We will definitely be returning and can strongly recommend Casa Cruz to anyone who wants to see real Spain beyond the tourist areas. Special thanks to Dave and Al the perfect hosts - we really couldn't have asked for more.

All in all a great holiday at a great destination.

“Relaxing Holiday in a Beautiful House”
Reviewed July 27, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My boyfriend and I along with six friends rented Casa Cruz and the Casita for a week and had a brilliant time. The house is well-equipped including everything required for in-door and out-door dining, some pool games and UK television.

Dave and Al are very friendly, and due to us arriving late on the Saturday night after the shops had closed, had provided some food and drink supplies.

I would 100% recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a relaxing, reasonably secluded holiday with a group of friends.

“What more could you ask for?”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This lovely house had spacious rooms and decorated with style and taste and was spotless. The location was set in a rural peaceful location, but was still close to Granada and Cordoba. We played golf in Antequera, walked around the lake in Iznajar, which was a beautiful place to explore , and we found plenty to do in the area , We always ended the day in that lovely pool. We had an excellent meal in the local village which even catered for the vegan diet. So we definitely go back again.

“Stunning”
Reviewed May 28, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a great find. David and Alan were so welcoming and could not do enough to make us feel at home. The welcome pack was indeed welcome. Traditional villa, attractively presented and well equipped. There was a great pool and areas to relax in. Lots of walking areas in fantastic countryside. Lake Iznajar is not far and there are boating activities and barbecue area around the beach. Lots of shade too. David and Alan are continuing to find ways of making their great property even more attractive with lots of planting. Can't wait to go again.

“Had a fantastic stay at Casa Cruz”
Reviewed April 27, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Had a fantastic stay at Casa Cruz, arrived on a late flight but the Owners Dave and Al waited up late for me to arrive, they settled me into the Casita and, as I looked around, I loved how well presented it was.
I found a fabulous welcome basket which was loaded with all the essentials.
The location was lovely with just the sounds of the wildlife and the occasional olive picker. Casa Cruz is totally away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, idyllic with the rolling hills and olive groves.
I really enjoyed the pool area, catching the wonderful Spanish sunshine and didn't want to leave the Villa but I'm glad I did, as just a short drive away was the Town, Lake and Beach of Iznajar with shops and bars, and fantastic scenery.
I’m not easily impressed but by far one of the nicest holidays I have ever had, I will be rebooking very soon. Thank you Dave and Al for making me feel very welcome in your beautiful Casita.
