Q: How is the property equipped?
A: Information about features of the property can be found in the property description. Besides that you'll always find a fully fitted kitchen with all kitchenware and utensils needed for a self catering property (cleaning products etc). Flat screen TV and wireless internet is also standard. Almost all our properties have WiFi vía optic fibre or satellite, with the possibility to stream your favorite subscription channels, or conect to the website of your country´s public TV channels. In many houses there is satellite TV with reception of ASTRA, which allows you to see several English language news or sports channels. There are only few properties which, due to poor satellite reception, do not have internet conection.
Q: How big are the beds?
A: The traditional Spanish bed sizes are: double bed 140 x 190 cm, single: 90 x 190 cm. However, during the last decade, owners have changed the rather small size in terms of central European standards to normal queen size (150 x 200 cm). Double beds have a 220 x 240 cm cover and usually 2 cushion rolls of 70 x 30 cm. In winter there are duvets with covers. Please let us know if you want to have 2 individual blankets or duvets for the double bed.
Q: Are linen and towels provided?
A: There is 1 set of linen and 2 hand towels + 2 bath towels for each guest. Additional sets can be ordered in advance or picked up on the spot (7€ p.p.) Please bring your own beach towels.
Q: ¿Is air condition standard in all properties?
A: You can see in the property description if there is air condition in the house or apartment. Thanks to the moderate climate of the Atlantic Coast of Andalucia, temperatures do not rise to extreme temperatures as in places like Seville, and fans are usually sufficient to cool down temperatures on hot days.
We are also aware that air condition consumes a lot of electricity, which increases not only the rental price, but is also contributing to the climatic change (the power mix of the electricity provider Electra Conilense or Endesa has a big proportion of fossil fuels and nuclear power).
Q: Are the properties suitable also for the winter season? ¿How are they equipped?
A: Not all villas and apartments are suitable for the winter, because they have been built as summer houses and are missing good thermic insulation.
Few houses have central heating, but thanks to the moderate temperature this is not really necessary. A chimney or wood burning stove in combination with a radiator or gas heater is sufficient and more economical. We also persuading our owners to install efficient pellet stoves. There should be a hot air heater or radiant heater for the bathroom. In case the heating devices of the property are not sufficient, you can rent a mobile gas heater from Casa Andaluza.
Heavy woolen blankets for the beds are past. All properties we offer for winter rentals have duvets with covers.
Q: Are cleaning products in the property?
A: We advise owners and cleaning teams to leave detergents for washing machine, dishwasher and general cleaning products and utensils in the property. There should be also a kitchen roll and waste bags.
Q: Are there some basic products in the kitchen?
A: We advise owners and cleaning teams to leave oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and maybe also other non-perishable products.
Q: Are there beach chairs, umbrellas and beach towels in the property?
A: These items are not standard yet, but often they are provided by the owners or have been left by other tenants. We might also have some in our office to lend you.
