We booked Escondrijo on the basis of reviews from this site and the fantastic write up on Mr and Mrs Smith. I have to say we were not prepared even so for such a fantastic stay.
Escondrijo is tucked away down the beautiful Andalucian streets of Vejer de la Frontera, close to the gorgeous tiled and palm tree lines square of the Plaza de Espana. Once inside we blown away by the beautiful decor and endless personal touches that made this such a home from home.
The rooms are as fabulous as the pictures suggest, and the views from our balconies (we had the Woodburner Suite and the Hammock Suite) were breathtaking. The breakfast room/honesty bar area are perfect for enjoying a G&T before you head out and the delicious breakfast served each morning. The fresh fruit, yoghurt and homemade granola had me leaping out of bed each morning, and following that with a selection of brads/pastries, meats and cheeses we were well stocked to explore the area.
The rooms were gorgeous, with plenty of info on the local area and thoughtful touches like beach towels and travel adaptors meaning it took minutes for us to feel settled and at home.
Now on to the owners, Netty and Nigel. I have never had the pleasure of staying in the premises of a more welcoming, friendly and helpful couple. They did everything possible each day to make sure we had our plans organised, great suggestions of where to eat, they even sorted out or taxi's and ran around the square to find us when we couldn't find our cab on a night out. Not to mention their willingness to lend anything we needed, let us use the cute lounge and breakfast room to relax after check out for as long as we liked....I could go on. They really do elevate escondrijo beyond anywhere else I have stayed.
Needless to say our group are already saving up to go back. You will not be disappointed if you go here!
