I am utterly delighted to have met Ana & felt privileged to stay in her lovely home, the house in which her Mother used to live. "Santa Ana" quite literally gave me a shoulder to cry on, welcoming me with open arms, when I arrived following a traumatic & upsetting housesitting experience on a nearby Cortijo. I really can't thank her enough, & I can't recommend her highly enough as an Airbnb Host! She is a truly kind, thoughtful, & generous person, & the sort of woman that restores one's faith in the rest of humanity. As well as this, Ana is warm, friendly, speaks excellent English, is very knowledgeable, & whole a lot of fun! We had a great time meeting each other, chatting, & getting to know one another a little, during the few hours in the evening we spent together. (I have no doubt however that if I had wanted to be left alone, Ana would have respected that. I had asked for Ana to visit me, if she had time, after work. She is great company!)
Ana's house is absolutely lovely. I felt very happy to be staying in a genuine family home, & to inhabit the space that used to be Ana's mother's. The price is amazing for a spacious, comfortable, & quiet house, with fully fitted kitchen & bathroom, & a very comfortable bed. There are 2 sitting rooms, one with the wonderful mesa camilla for warming one's toes. In the other I was offered a log fire. There are 2 bedrooms, with 1 double, & 2 single beds, so 4 people could stay here very comfortably.
Velez Rubio is a quiet, typical, & friendly Andalucian town which serves as the gateway to the Sierra de María-Los Vélez Natural Park, an amazing place to explore. From the front door of Ana's house one can clearly see the great Mount Maimon, & from further down at the bottom of the road, the breathtaking Mount Muela Grande. This space is not known or that well visited by many tourists, so if you enjoy quiet & spectacular mountain hikes in the sunshine, with eagles soaring above you, this is the place to come.
Ana, thanks so much again, you are my Airbnb Superstar, no doubt about it! *****
