The fusion of Mediterranean and Caribbean features create a charming and harmonious atmosphere where quality is the trademark..
Massive old wooden entrance doors lead from the house’s private parking area into a stone-walled courtyard with a fountain ensconced amongst verdant and colourful Mediterranean plants and flowers, ideal for al-fresco dining on warm summer nights. Blue framed glass doors open into a spacious and sunny lounge with comfortable sofas and a wood burning stove. At one end of this room is a TV/video/DVD and music area, with bookshelves full of an ample selection of Spanish & English videos, books and board games for all ages and interests.
A colourful and rustic styled kitchen, fully equipped with state of the art appliances ( ceramic hob, oven, extractor, fridge/freezer, micro-wave, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, coffeemaker, kettle, etc), will meet all culinary needs. A huge archway connects the kitchen with an open plan area that is comfortably divided into a cosy sitting-room, with its eye-catching modern fireplace set against the backdrop of stone walls, and a dining room with seating for 8 people.
Terracotta tiled stairs lead upstairs to the first floor where four ample double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, are located. Two bedrooms have queen-sized beds and share a secluded terracewith mountain views. The other two bedrooms have twin beds and overlook the village. All bedrooms have airconditioning and are decorated and furnished to the highest standards together with a careful selection of top quality bed and bath linen. Ample sized bathrooms are equiped with modern sanitary ware, three with large walk-in showers and the fourth with a whirlpool bath. There is a pretty powder roomdownstairs. The house has a modern, electrical central heating system and a smoke detector system.
Outdoors, there is a wide choice of areas for everyone. The two-level patio leads up to the fruit orchard and garden area where a large 11x4mswimming pool, that can be floodlit for those summer-night dips, overlooks the valley and surrounding mountains. There are sunloungers and outdoor furniture for sunbathing or resting in the garden under shady trees. A covered porch and barbecue area complete this unique accomodation where you will want to return time and again.
This beautiful and tranquil setting is the ideal spot for that “get-away-from-it-all” holiday, for family get-togethers, common interest groups or those who simply wish to “disconnect” from everyday stress and rediscover life’s simple pleasures.
In Xaymaca, a cleaning service is included twice a week, which can be extended upon request. The owners take care of pool and garden maintenance. Upon your arrival, you will be greeted with our “welcome basket” which includes seasonal fruit, drinks, wine, bread, butter, tea, coffee, etc. to help you recover from your journey and plenty of information about the area.
Located on the edge of the small village of Benimeli, Xaymaca is only a few minutes walk from the village square which boasts a cultural centre, bar/restaurant serving local and international cuisine, a grocery store and bakery.
