Luxury Accommodation in Zahara - Top level & 2 mins walk to the fantastic beach
- english, french, german, spanish
We are a German couple living in Frankfurt. I love horse riding and Alex plays soccer in his free time. We both enjoy skiing/snowboarding in winter and kite surfing in summer.
Why Iris chose Tarifa
My husband has visited Zahara already as a kid and when we came here together, I instantly fell in love with this place with its long and broad white sandy beaches, enough wind to enjoy the kites most time of the year, the spanish hospitality and the terrific food. So we decided to buy something here to be able to enjoy it ourselves for several weeks a year, but also to share it with others who enjoy it as much as we do. We maintain our apartment in Zahara according to our own high standards and hope to share it with people who enjoy this place as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
Zahara stands out as a village full of history with the Almadraba, local flavours, great places to visit in proximity like Cadiz and close to the Kite-surfing paradise Tarifa

Zahara - Beach Paradise!
All our correspondence with Iris, the owner, was excellent. She responded quickly to all of our queries. Stanley, the caretaker, met us in the village and guided us to the apartment. He walked us through the condo and explained how everything worked. Iris provided a wonderful welcoming gift of meats cheese, assorted soft drinks and juices, wine, beer, bread, and fresh fruits. The condo has two floors. The top floor has one small bedroom and the master bedroom with an adjoining bathroom. There are air conditioners in both bedrooms and they work perfectly. The views of the beach and ocean are excellent from the master bedroom windows. The bottom floor has one bedroom, a sitting area with a TV, a dining table, and a kitchen. There is one air conditioner on this level and it does a nice job of cooling the entire floor. Also on this level is a huge balcony or patio with wonderful water views. There is a table for dining and additional seating on the patio. It’s a perfect spot for enjoying a morning coffee or a glass of wine while watching the sun set. Because this a penthouse or top floor condo, you will usually have a nice cool breeze coming from the ocean. There is a small market just steps from the condo complex. You will be just a few minutes walking distance from the beach and many restaurants and bars. If you tire of the beach, there is a lovely swimming pool with life guard and lounging area in the condo complex. The condo is in a gated community with an underground secure parking garage. There is an elevator located right next to the condo so you don’t have to carry your bags up 3 flights of stairs. The village of Zahara is a 3-5 minute drive where you can enjoy more bars, restaurants, and shops. Zahara is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. Thank you Iris for sharing your home!

Beautiful roof top terrace close to the beach
Spacious apartment with a beautiful roof top terrace were we enjoyed unforgettable sun sets. Perfect for a family of four like us, close to the beautiful beach. Perfect infrastructure with pool, beach equipment, a little supermarket and a fish shop were we bought every day fresh fish. The only downside from our point of view: To claim luxury the apartments really needs a little renovation, especially the bathrooms.
Very comfortable and well equiped appartment in great location
Firtsly dealing with the owner and the caretaker to check in and out was very easy. An Englishman living in Spain deals with keys etc and it was very easy to arrange to meet him at the only petrol station in Zahara and be shown the way, the car parking, how everything works etc. The owner will give you his details in advance. I texted the day before and got a reply from hima nd then called him on the day when we were getting close.
The appartment is about 1.5 miles from the centre of Zahara de los Atunes in the direction of Atlantera. It has stunning views over the beach and a superb terrace with lots of seating. We enjoyed walking into the 'village' for restaurants, shops, the small market etc. We stayed in November which is very quiet - this suited us as we don't like the crowds and had about 7 miles of beach to share with about 5 other people! However, do be aware that all of Atlanterra (swimming pools, shops etc) closes out of season. The village of Zahara has shops that do stay open - good supermarket and some restaurants; or if you want more the town of Barbate is only 9k away and has everything you would need.
The appartment is very well equiped and very comfortable. The beds are excellent - memory foam matresses and a selection of pillows. Plenty of towels and T towels. The kitchen is as well equiped as mine back home with lots of utensils and saucepans etc. I was able to cook 'proper' meals like stews and oven items just as I would at home. It was particularly nice having a large fridge and freezer so that we could stock up for a week. I also used the washing machine twice and it was easy - bring your own washing powder/capsules.
We happened to be at the appartment when the owner was also staying in Zahara and we met her briefly - she was very kind and gave us recommendations for restaurants and kitesurfing a little further down the coast.
I highly recommend this appartment. It's a home-from-home.

Fabulous accommodation in a wonderful resort
This fantastic apartment is set in Atlanterra, about 1k south of Zahara. Atlanterra has been a delight with its superb wide and long sandy beach, various beach bars and lovely restaurants. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped, the crown being its huge terrace with sea view. We have a had a wonderful holiday here and would return in a moment to both the apartment and Atlanterra. Watching the sun go down on the horizon from a beach bar with your feet in the sand and a drink in your hand will be very missed by our family!
Great location, very hospitable!
We are a family of 5, and we stayed here for 4 nights June 14-18, 2016. Stanley greeted us & took us to the apartment and showed us everything we needed to know. Upon arrival there were fruit, breads, meats, cheeses, wine & pastries welcoming us! The apartment was clean & spacious. My husband & I are very organized & thou rough people & we have discussed many times what we would provide for people if we had a rental property. This apartment was pretty close to exactly how we would have done it. Books/cd's/movies/spices/some goods/beach chairs/knee boards, etc! The washer/dryer/dishwasher worked great! The proximity to the beach was great! The ONLY bad thing was that the pool was locked & we had to climb the fence to use it! The view of the ocean was breathtaking! The owners even had brochures & suggestions for anything you needed or wanted!
We do recommend this apartment!
