“We had a most fantastic time at Steve's and Rosie's villa. It was our second visit and we couldn't be happier. We were lucky to be given this opportunity to enjoy our family time at this fabulous property. It is very clean, very comfortable, fully equipped with an amazing swimming pool and various terraces where you can relax, cook, eat or play ping pong with kids. The views from the villa are spectacular and so relaxing. Full spectrum with widespread sea view right in front of you, mountains on left and right hand side and Mojcar town just below you. Unbeatable! Communication with Steve and Rosie has always been very good and their knowledge of the area is great and very helpful. Consider yourself very lucky if you are given the opportunity to visit and relax at the villa. Thank you so much for having us again Steve and Rosie! ”
“Steve has been very kind and helpful providing any kind of information or help you might need. We have enjoyed a lot our week in his property . I would repeat the experience without any doubt. Thanks Steve form his help ”
“Steve and Rosie's house is a real gem! A perfect location, stunning views, an infinity pool to dream of, a wonderfully and lovingly decorated interior... You name it, it has it all! Add to this the extraodinary hospitality Steve & Rosie are so effortlessly displaying and there you have your dream holidays! Steve was always reacting very fast to any kind of question we had and was so helpful by giving us fantastic tips for what to do and where to go. So many tips, that we couldn't even experience them all during our 9 day stay. If you get the opportunity to do a home swap with Steve & Rosie you can truly feel privileged and prepare yourself for a fantastic, carefree time. Thank you so much for everything!”
“ Outstandingly beautiful location, magnificent property - a truly wonderful opportunity. I was lucky enough to spent a couple of weeks in August 2019 in Steve and Rosie's home, with my daughter and an elderly friend. We were absolutely blessed with this swap. The villa occupies what is arguably the best location in the Mojacar beach area - high enough on the hillside for panoramic sea views from the pool, sheltered and rooftop seating areas, and yet within walking distance to the sea front, beach, supermarkets and a cafe or two. A slightly longer walk or 5 min drive/bus journey takes you into Mojacar itself, with a fine supermarket, and several lovely sea front restuarants. 10 mins inland takes you to the 'old town' - a gem of a place to visit, perched at mountainous heights, with ancient narrrow and winding cobbled streets, and dozens of tucked away bars and restuarants, several with views to day dream about (I know I do!). The villa is wonderfully spacious and has a feeling of serenity. The two large indoor living areas are both very comfortably furnished, the kitchen is abundantly supplied with much more than everything you need, including a fresh coffee machine, and our hosts were kind enough to leave staples and kitchen basics for us to use. There is even a small bedroom downstairs, which is perfectly adequate, but not airconditioned so only for those comfortable with fan cooling! Enroute upstairs there is a creatively-designed landing room which appears to be used for art projects, and adds a touch of distinction to the overall indoor space, which has a lovely high ceiling - I don't think the photos do it justice! The bedrooms are roomy and attractively decorated, plenty of room for six people to stay comfortably. My favourite area, which really has to be seen to be appreciated, was the outdoor verandah and eating area, which is equipped with a very good and almost new barbeque. The hanging chair here was the perfect place to enjoy the amazing view, and a space to the left had a three piece suite, again perfect for lounging, reading, or enjoying the view. A hammock is hidden under some trees in the garden a few meters from this area - something kids and adults alike would love! The inifinity pool was perfect - my daughter practically lived in it - and Steve and Rosie generously provided inflatable toys etc.. and even a parasol or two to take to the beach. I can't finish without mentioning our on-site personal assistant, who became a friend during our stay! Amanda, who lives opposite, is full of wisdom and local area knowledge - she was on hand practically for a couple of houshold maintenance queries, and couldn't have been more helpful - any questions we had, whether about the villa or pool, or local area - we accompanied her on her weekly trip to Garrucha market (which is a MUST to visit - the fresh produce put our supermarket offerings to shame) - she was always available, and a real delight to spend time with. She will also tell you where are the best beaches - and ask her about her off-the-beaten track walks, if you are game! Although it has taken me ages to write this review (sorry once again, Steve!!) I can honestly say that I daydream about our holiday on a very regular basis. The experience was a true gift; and I couldn't be more appreciative. If you are lucky enough to find compatible dates, jump at the chance! I am dying to visit again! :) ”
“If you are looking for a place for a relaxing summer holiday, by a great pool, beautiful views and plenty of sunshine, look no further than Rosie's and Steve's villa in Mojacar. It is fantastic!!! We had the most amazing time here. Rosie and Steve are top, top hosts. Great communicators, very helpful, they know the area inside out and have plenty of really good recommendations. From the moment you come to the villa, you feel at home. We were greeted by a lovely neighbour Amanda who showed us the ropes and made us feel very welcome and comfortable. The house is very well equipped and clean. All en-suite bedrooms are very cosy and the beds are comfortable. There is air-con in every room. There are a lot of outside areas to enjoy. Terrace at the top where you can watch a sunrise and relax in the shade during the day enjoying spectacular views. The main terrace outside the living room which we mainly used for breakfasts and other meals is so nice. An area around the table and then another section with armchairs and a sofa. Then another level down where you will enjoy a really comfortable, infinity pool with a nice bar and most importantly perfect water temperature (30 degrees). Villa's location is amazing. It is on top of the hill, unobstructed by any other building in a perfect distance to the sea. You look down and see beautiful white buildings of Mojacar, mountains to your left and mountains to the right. The whole, vast and beautiful spectrum of white Andalusian buildings, trees, mountains and a sea. It is very special. You'll be lucky to find a nicer view. Also, it is right in the centre of the town, very close to the shops, bars, restaurant and a beach but tucked away up on the hill that you don't feel as being in the town centre and can't hear any traffic whatsoever. It is no more than 5-6 minutes stroll down the curved, quiet road. Mojacar itself is a very pleasant town. It has a lot of different restaurants, some with live music in the evenings. There are very nice beach bars with great seafood and paellas. Also a beautiful old town on top of a very high hill. And most importantly full of sunshine. We are very grateful and happy that we could spend our somehow short but amazing holiday at Rosie's and Steve's villa. Thank you very much for having us! Jarek & family”
“It is hard to do this justice in a review! This was our first experience of home swapping and I can happily say it was our best family holiday ever. Rosie and Steve's place is just incredible, it is on a hill with views over the ocean and the mountains meaning you get to glimpse both sunrise and sunset. The property has a great outside space and we were spoilt for choice with areas to sit and relax. The highlight of course is the pool! The infinity pool looks over the view and we could have all just sat in there very happily all day. The home was really well equipped and we were able to make use of beach things. It was also great to be able to cook in such a well equipped kitchen. We ate in most of the time. There was also some really lovely little touches, such as boxes left in our rooms with toiletries, gifts for the kids and even swimming medals. We also loved the area, Mojacar. It had a lot going on without feeling like it was just some big beach resort full of brits! We had dinner at a couple of the restaurants along the beach and also enjoyed live salsa one evening. The house is only a 10 min walk from shops, beach and restaurants (although coming back up the hill is a killer in the heat!) Steve and Rosie were lovely to deal with and so helpful, giving us lots of tips etc. Their neighbour Amanda was there to greet us and help if we needed her during our stay. We could happily come back here every year (in fact we all wanted to live here!) We are total home swap converts now and looking forward to our next trip. Thank you so much Rosie and Steve! ”
“We were very happy that Rose and Steve shared their beautiful villa with us. The villa is in a wonderful location, with different terraces with different views over the blue sea. Mojácar is a small nice town with a beautiful beach and nice places to eat and a charming old center. In the surrounding you can see beautiful nature (Gabo de Gata) and beaches, you can see cultures, go to markets. For evereybody there is something to do and the sun does always shine. Although we didn't meet Rosie and Steve, they were very hospital at a distance and gave us tips tricks about the environment. In short, we had a very good hoilday in Villa Nardo and Rosie and Steve are very sweet and good hosts. ”
“Rosie and Steve were our very first Love Home Swap guests and we couldn’t have wished for more perfect guests. They were very reassuring as it’s the first time we’ve had strangers in our house and were very relaxed about everything. Communication was really clear as we didn’t meet but were able to discuss queries before and at the beginning of their stay. We came home to a spotless house, watered veg and a mended hose (which I’d been meaning to fix for months) Perfect! We hope to make it out to their beautiful looking place in Spain at some point when travel gets a bit easier. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steve and Rosie as perfect guests who will look after your house. Thanks to Rosie and Steve for easing us in and we hope to be in touch in the future.”
