You do need a local map and car if you are not familiar with the area and you want to get out and about. The owners leave plenty of information on La Finca and the surrounding area. The welcome pack… More

We mostly enjoyed our stay. Arrived earlier than expected, caretakers were waiting. Place was clean. The pool was warm enough to swim in & good amount of utensils in the house. Beds comfy, nice shower… More
Some people aren't happy unless they look for something to moan about. The caretakers house is not right next door, it's on the next plot of land, out of sight. They can't see you and you can't see them. They do have a gorgeous 3 year old who you may hear now and again in the distance. My kids always drown Sofia out so I never hear her. She may leave the odd toy around to but I am not going to worry about that. We are in the country with 700 square meters of land to maintain so you may see a strimmer on the caretakers land. This is normal. He NEVER uses it when guests are in the house. It is possible you might get unlucky a Spanish neighbour with land may come and decide to use his strimmer though. It's like back home when the neighbour cuts his grass, HOW INCONSIDERATE.... My son has the habit of putting rocks in the sand pit, he fills up his dumper truck with them so sorry about that. The air conditioner had unscrewed itself from the wall and was vibrating loudly, it has been fixed now so no more loud noise. I have to turn the ac off at night because the kids get to cold. Make sure all the doors are closed otherwise it won't work. It's like having the heating on in winter and all the doors open and wondering why it's still cold inside. All are other guests have been completely happy and many rebook. If something isn't working just let the caretakers know and they will be happy to sort it out. Don't wait until you get home and then moan about it. That doesn't help anyone. To all who are thinking of booking Douglas Creek. You will have a lovely time I can guarantee it....
