Guests about this villa

“Der Urlaub war wieder wunderbar. Wir haben uns in beiden Häusern sehr wohl gefühlt. Tony und Cath waren wirklich sehr nett und hilfsbereit, wie von Vida Rustica beschrieben. Rondavels war einfach ein Traum. Dort werden wir sicher noch einmal hinfahren und freuen uns auch darauf, Pam wiederzusehen. Einrichtung und Ausstattung von Rondavels sind so wundervoll, so geschmackvoll und hochwertig! Und der Blick in die Natur ist wunderschön. Alles war perfekt organisiert. Klasse fanden wir, dass Vida Rustica vorher auch beschrieben hat, was wir in der Finca vorfinden (Olivenöl etc.). Dann weiß man, dass man dies nicht mitnehmen / einkaufen muss. Nein, uns fällt gerade nichts ein, was ihr besser machen könntet. Man kann euch nur empfehlen. Liebe Grüße aus Aachen,”

Kerstin und Ralf Maibaum, August 2018

Liebe Kerstin und Lieber Ralf, Recht herzlichen Dank für Ihr liebes Feedback mit Bezug auf die Villen La Cresta und Rondavels. Es freut mich, dass Sie Ihren Urlaub wieder so genossen haben und zufrieden waren über unsere Betreuung. Ich werde Ihre netten Worte auch an Cath und Tony und an die Pamela weitergeben; das wird sie bestimmt auch besonders freuen. Ich hoffe Sie in der Zukunft nochmals beraten zu können. Gerne bis ein nächstes Mal! Liebe Grüße, Maaike, Vida Rustica

“We absolutely loved our time at Rondavels. The views are stunning, the peace and quiet were just what we needed, and Pamela was very kind and welcoming to us – we are planning to keep in touch. The villa itself was well equipped, we loved having the large double bed rather than the 2 singles put together which is often the case, and being able to wake up to the expansive views. The pool was the perfect size also. I am already missing having an evening on the decking watching the sunset! I would very much recommend it to anyone, the space and privacy really couldn’t be matched by any hotel, or indeed many villas, and for a very reasonable price. We also found it very well organised. We very much appreciated the pack you sent us with information on nearby attractions – we visited the Cueva de la Pileta which were fascinating. And thank you very much for the clear directions taking us from the airport to the Villa.  All in all we were very impressed and are already planning when we might be able to return! Thank you so much for all your help, and no doubt we will be in touch again. Kind regards,”

Roisin O’Connor, July 2018

Dear Roisin, Thanks so much for your extensive feedback! How wonderful to hear that you truly enjoyed your stay at Rondavels. I have sent Pamela an excerpt…she will love to hear this! Looking forward to welcoming you again a next time, for some more peace and quiet and complete relaxation! Best wishes, Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rústica

“Beste Maaike, Wij hebben een prachtige en onvergetelijke vakantie gehad. Alles was perfect, het huis het zwembad, het uitzicht, de omgeving, Ronda enz. Ook het weer was uitstekend! Wij kunnen dan ook geen enkel minpunt bedenken. Ook de organisatie was perfect geregeld, niets op aan te merken. Wij hebben ontzettend genoten deze prachtige plek. Bedankt voor alles! De hartelijke Groeten van,”

Maria en Leen van Hanegem, June 2016.

Beste Maria en Leen, Heel hartelijk dank voor jullie feedback, heerlijk dat jullie zo genoten hebben! Ik zal Pamela de complimenten overbrengen. Graag tot een volgende keer, hartelijke groet, Maaike van der Gevel, Vida Rústica

“Unser Urlaub war toll, wir haben Haus, Ruhe, Umgebung und Andalusien sehr genossen. Vielen Dank für die sehr professionell vorbereiteten Reiseunterlagen, die in der Praxis sehr hilfreich waren. Die Unterkunkft war einfach perfekt, so toll gelegen und mit einem ganz besonderen Flair. Wir haben uns auch sehr über die Köstlichkeiten im Kühlschrank gefreut. Außerdem war war alles sehr sauber, mit viel Herzlichkeit eingerichtet und alles Erdenkliche vorhanden.

Bitte richten sie die Eigentümerin liebe Grüße von uns aus und dass wir mehr als begeistert von diesem traumhaften Fleckchen Erde waren. Wir werden sicher noch einmal wiederkommen!

Der Kontakt mit Vida Rústica war auch immer sehr, sehr angenehm und symphatisch und ich kann Vida Rústica nur weiterempfehlen.

Viele Grüße und eine gute Zeit, “

“Het verblijf in Rondavels was fantastisch. Enige opmerking is dat de week te snel voorbij was. Bedankt voor de goede service en het terugstorten van de borg. Groeten van…”

Abbey & Jeroen Vrolijk, August 2015

Hallo Abbey en Jeroen, Dat is heel fijn om te horen! Goed dat julle zo genoten hebben. Ik zal vragen of ze een week wat langer kunnen laten duren…:) Graag tot een volgende keer! Hartelijke groet, Maaike

“We loved Rondavells & have been very pleased with the services of Vida Rustica. Already we’ve been looking at your other properties for our next visit.  

For us, the Rondavells location was superb, so peaceful & quiet.  The property had everything we could have wanted in terms of furniture & equipment. There were also some lovely touches of quality, such as the bedding & pillows – so soft!

Wasps seem to be attracted to the pool area.  They did not worry us or spoil our fantastic week but some people might feel otherwise. We thought it worth mentioning.

Thanks again for a great holiday & hope to book with you again in the future. Kind regards,”

Sharon & Ian, August 2015

Dear Sharon and Ian, Good to hear that you loved Rondavels! It actually was the first villa in our portfolio, a jewel! With the drought in summer wasps are looking for water, and therefore will be attracted to the pool area. However as the owner has the whole area sprayed several times per year, this is fortunately well controlled. We are happy that you have enjoyed all the luxury of this well appointed villa! We are looking forward to advise you again next time, Maaike, Vida Rústica


“Wij hebben het fantastisch gehad in Rondavels. Prachtig huis met alles wat je maar kunt wensen. Meer dan compleet een keuken waar je kunt koken en daar houden wij van. Zeer attent dat er allerlei spulletjes in de badkamer waren net als in de keuken. Alles voor een uitgebreid ontbijt en niet te vergeten : Champagne!

We hebben genoten van onze wandelingen over het landgoed en de tuinen. Pamela gaf ons het gevoel dat wij bijna persoonlijke gasten waren. Bijzonder !

Zoals gevraagd nog een paar suggesties. Een extra parasol zou prettig zijn, de voet is hiervoor al aanwezig. Juni is nog geen echte wespen tijd. Wij hadden er ook geen last van. Er moet wel aandacht aanbesteed worden want de wespen waren reeds nieuwe nesten aan het bouwen in de houten daklijsten die daarvoor vanwege kieren een goede plaats vormen. ( Wij wonen zelf buiten en daarom vallen ons deze dingen op). Het is ons tevens opgevallen dat het skimmen van het zwembad niet goed werkt omdat de afstelling van de circulatie niet goed is. Met andere woorden er gaat tijdens het spoelen meer water uit dan er terug komt. Ik heb het water 2 keer bijgevuld. Ik vond het lastig om het Pamela’s te zeggen omdat dit beslist geen klacht is maar meer een tip om even op te letten.

Wij hebben een heerlijke week gehad en als het mogelijk is gaan wij zeker nog een keer terug. Maaike dank voor de goede organisatie en de meer dan goede beschrijvingen.

Hartelijk groet,”

Marlou en Erik Luters, June 2015

Beste Marlou en Erik, Hartelijk dan voor jullie leuke en nuttige feedback. Heerlijk dat jullie het zo fijn gehad hebben! Ik zal een en ander naar Pamela terugkoppelen, dan zal ze beslist weer trots zijn op haar huis en die twee dingetjes meteen oppikken. De wespen dat komt goed: ze heeft een contract met een bedrijf dat een paar keer per  jaar het hout komt behandelen tegen insecten, dat werkt gelukkig uitstekend. Geniet nog maar lekker na van je vakantie! Graag tot een volgende keer, Maaike


“Thank you for all your help in getting us booked. We had an amazing time in Andalucia and can’t wait to return!

The Rondavels were perfect. We’ve stayed in many self catering properties over the years and this is one of just two that exceeded our expectations and was faultless throughout. Pamela certainly knows how to make a home from home and attends to all the little extras for her guests. A truly valuable thing!

From arriving, our shoulders relaxed and it was pure bliss. Being greeted by 23 vultures overhead whilst eating breakfast on the first morning was probably one of the highlights too.

We will most certainly use Vida Rústica for our future visits to Andalucia!”

Best wishes, Melanie and Jeffrey Lucas, September 2014
