Space and comfort are the main characteristics of this large modern beach house (sleeps 10). There is nothing in front of it, other than a quiet street (only ever gets busy in the 6 peak summer weeks) and then the 100 meters of umbrella pines that stretch away to the low cliffs. It’s a 300m walk to the steps down to the beach, where you will find wonderful rock pools and fine views across to the island and castle of Sancti Petri. Walk in the other direction, and after 5 minutes you come to La Barrosa, with its good selection of bars and fish restaurants and its huge sandy beach, which stretches away 8km to Roche in the south. The house has a large, extremely well-kept garden, with pool, covered terrace, and plenty of lawn for running around.
Accommodation at Casa Rocio is on two main floors, although there is also a large playroom in the basement. The ground floor includes the large, fully-equipped kitchen, an also the large living area (sitting-room at one end and dining-room at the other), all of which open on to the terrace and the pool beyond. The bedroom wing has the main double suite, which also opens on to the terrace, plus three twin bedrooms, which share a bathroom. There is also a cloakroom and large laundry room. The first floor is home to the second double suite with its roof terrace, and also a large open plan office space that looks down onto the living room below.
This really is a house for those who want to beachcomb in comfort! You are close enough to the beach to walk through the pines for a swim before breakfast (unlikely to see anyone), before taking a hot shower by the pool. It is just 100m through the forest to a lookout gazebo (take your bottle of wine at sunset!), and then a 5-minute walk down to the restaurants for dinner (also on the beach!) And it is all in comfort, great comfort!
