Cheap Summer Rental in Almería, Andalusia, Spain + Cat Sitting

My house is a cosy two storey property that looks like a bungalow from the street, but has a habitable basement as it is on a hill. There are terraces on both levels and a lovely garden room on the side of the house. The kitchen is my pride & joy. It’s 3 minutes drive or 10 minutes walk from the beach, marina and shops and restaurants etc. Fabulous views over the golf course and sea and a community swimming pool across the road. 40 minutes from Almería airport. You would share the house with 3 cats that are friendly, although one is likely to only come home for food until he gets used to the idea of people being in the house. One is a bit clingy and needs lots of TLC when I am away; the other is a little softy. They spend most of the summer outdoors anyway.

I will be away for 14 weeks from late June to mid-September. The house is available from Saturday 25th June till Saturday 18th September. Rental by the week – minimum 2 weeks. Cleaning can be arranged @ €7/hour – min. 3 hours week. End of rental clean compulsory. Airport transfers may be available, but there are car hire firms at the airport which I would recommend in any case.

Ideal for spending a beach/day trip vacation in Southern Spain. My home is small and cosy, but with all mod cons (wifi, Spanish cable TV) – including the 3 cats! The views are spectacular and there are so many places to sit outside you will be spoilt for choice. Late in the evening after walking back from the marina and the vibrant square, sit on the balcony or in the decadent garden room and relax with a nightcap enjoying the sound of the sea, the crickets and the balmy summer breezes. If you are golfers, it is ideal. There are diving clubs within reasonable driving distance – I drive 100km to mine on a Sunday morning and am home for lunch. There are stables 5 minutes walk away if you like to ride and of course the beach is just a 10 minute stroll. The Alhambra in Granada is about 1 3/4 hours by car – you need to book in advance. Rental includes use of A/C which is essential here in summer. Welcome pack of basics in fridge etc + complimentary wine package.

Rates: House is 2 beds/2baths – sleeps 4

Family and facebook friends : €130/week + final clean

Friends of friends: €175/week + deposit + final clean

Others: €220/week + deposit + final clean

If you work in GBP you probably know the rate. The US $ is about 1:1 at the moment give or take.

Rental agreement requires cat care and at the very least not actually killing my plants.

Unfortunately due to insurance I cannot offer my car in the deal. Smokers welcome. Children welcome – could probably find a cot if needed. There are a copule of extra beds that could be put up, but would have to negotiate.
