“What a great place!!”
Reviewed October 4, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Trip advisor shows the location in the middle of the water! It is a little fishing village, so quaint and lovely - even with the shipyards across the inlet. We loved all aspects of the stay. Accomodations were great, too bad we didn't have more people to fill up all the beds! Taking the ferry across the inlet was great fun. The walk along both sides of the inlet were great. The rebuilding of the Portuguese whaling boat from 1500s was very interesting. We hiked up the mountain and across to San Sebastian along the Camino Norte - notfor the weary!

“What a great find!!”
Reviewed September 20, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My wife and I, along with two friends, stayed at UNCETA HOUSE for three nights. The owner Jorge met us at the car park two minutes away from the flat. Walking to the flat on the cobbled narrow street, we got a welcoming feeling already. It is a beautifully designed flat and, in fact, looks better than the photographs on line. Jorge spent some time with us showing us the flat and going through some of the detailed information available the flat and the surrounding area. He was extremely friendly and helpful.
Pasai Donibane, where the flat is located is wonderful, with narrow streets, local bars, restaurants and some shops. It is easy to get to San Sebastian. Just take the small passenger ferry across to the other side (three minutes) and a 15-minute bus ride. If you are feeling energetic, you can take a coastal walk over the hills in to San Sebastian.
If you want somewhere local, interesting but near to the fashionable area of San Sebastian then we have no concerns about recommending this flat and area. We loved it and would be happy to go again.

“Wonderful accomodation in great location”
Reviewed September 10, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed here for 5 nights and had a very comfortable stay. There are good fish restaurants within walking distance of the property and San Sebastian is just a short boat trip and a 10 minute bus journey away. On our arrival Jorge was very helpful and provided plenty of information on things to do, places to eat etc. If I were to revisit this area I would definitely stay here again.

“Awesome place to stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We (family of five from New Zealand) have just spent a week at this gorgeous house. It is everything the photos and descriptions say. It was great to be out of the city but it was easy enough to catch a ferry and a bus even though we speak no Spanish. Jorge was very easy to deal with and even accommodated us arriving at 10PM and I had accidentally booked for 2 not 5 people but it was no problem. The village is lovely and we did some great walks, the views are spectacular. We even walked to San Sebastián around the coastal cliffs, an easy two hour walk. The kids swam in the harbour - joining the locals in jumping off the seating in the square but it was easy enough to get to Gros for a day. The only downside is that the Internet connection was very slow, the area not the connection as even on 3G it was slow. Highly recommend as a pleasant alternative to San Sebastián.

“Lovely, spacious condo”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were on holiday visiting family in Hendaye, France and our cousins found this lovely condo for four of us to stay in (two couples) The space was perfect. Open floor plan, high ceilings, very clean and two bathrooms was great! The owner was very nice and accommodating and was able to speak enough english to explain everything. The little village is sweet and all the locals were so nice and even tried to teach us how to say certain words in basque. Very nice accommodations would recommend to friends and would stay there again!

“A delightful modernised apartment in an authentic Basque fishing port close to San Sebastián”
Reviewed April 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2015
1
person found this review helpful

My wife and I and our 31 year old son stayed for a week. The apartment is clean and newly modernised with full cooking and washing facilities. We chose to eat out most of the time in the excellent local restaurants. San Sebastián is 20 minutes away - a short ferry ride and then a bus to the centre of Isan Sebastián. Only one quibble is the limited parking in the adjacent free car park, but a free spot appeared after a patient wait.

“Lovely property - full of character and well appointed”
Reviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our family of five (3 pre-teen daughters) had a great week in this lovely property. The owners were very helpful and speak reasonable English. It has been recently refurbished to a high standard and has tons of exposed beams and stonework. It is very open-plan (which was fine for us) but be aware that only one bedroom has a door on it and the property would not be suitable for toddlers.
The garden at the rear is accessed via stairs and side passage to property and gets the sun in afternoon/evening. The property opens on to a (mainly pedestrian) narrow cobbled street on which you can wander easily to local shops/restaurants etc. and makes you feel very much a part of the local area.
Pasaia Donibane is a working Port area but San Sebastian is easily accessible and very attractive.
