Subject: Re: Carabeo 60 1d 1dCAR1123 Date: Fri, 16 Dec 2005 22:21:22 +0100 From: "Barbara Dudman" To: "Jil Clark" Hello Jil, Our holiday was too short, but we enjoyed it very much! When we walked through Nerja we discovered that we rent the best place in the whole village. Even when it was november, we had very sunny times at the beach (with paella) and loved to see the beautifull little streets, with their shops. So I thought I want to come back with my daughter (7) who loves the sea and swimming into it, in a good season for that. She has her holiday at the 14the of octobre untill 21. Can you please find out for me of Carabeo 60 1D is still free at that time? (2006). Thank you very much! Hope to hear from you, With regards, Barbara Dudman

Subject: Re: the shirt Date: Fri, 12 Aug 2005 18:58:30 EDT From: Sueday24ataol.com To: jilclarkatnas.net Hi Jil, many thanks!! yes you have the correct address and thanks so much for sorting this for me. We were at Malaga airport when I realised I'd left my shirt behind and it took a while before we could get the pay phone to work. Next time I'll get the kids to check my room after me! We had an absolutely fabulous time and despite nearly melting out there at times, we are now missing the heat! Nerja is a beautiful place and perfect for families, even those with young teenagers. The villa (Oasis de Capistrano - Tetuan 32) was actually better than expected (the photos on line didn't do it justice), lovely and clean and well kitted out and we appreciated the provisions left for us. Once again many thanks Sue Day

The apartment was wonderful and we shall no doubt wish to return - it is an idyllic setting and the climb fron the beach up to the top floor kept us from getting too fat!. Also good to meet Nick - reassured him we are not harbouring hooligans! kind regards Katy

Everything went as planned, no delays at the airports, lovely weather (not too hot!) and a beautiful and convenient appartment. The only negative point was the fact that we had to return home after two weeks... But... we are already looking forward to our holiday of next year, so I wanted to ask you when approx. the prices for renting appartments for next year will be on your website? Thanks in advance for your answer. Kind regards, Kris

Subject: Tamariu Date: Thu, 9 Jun 2005 13:45:31 +0100 From: "Bourke Suzanne" To: jilclarkatnas.net Jil My parents, brother and niece have just returned from Tamariu and had a lovely time and had a great apartment rented through you. My husband and I are now thinking of visiting in September (around the 10th but can be flexible with dates as long as the weather is still good) and I wondered if you could recommend an apartment for 2 people with a balcony/terrace and with a view of the sea. You have so many apartments on your website that it's a bit baffling! I look forward to hearing from you. Regards Suzanne Aldridge

We had a great time and like you said the apartment was great. So great that if its free in October for 1 week, week commencing Sat 22nd or Sun 23rd that would be great. If you haven't got it available something in the area will do. Thanks for everything Jo Richards
Subject: Las Fuentes de Nerja 1G Date: Wed, 25 May 2005 16:56:06 +0100 From: shrewsburyatfurrows.co.uk To: "Jil Clark" jilclarkatnas.net Dear Jil I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful holiday we had in Nerja last month, and to apologise for the delay in writing to you. The apartment was brilliantly located, and as you suggested, perfect for my parents as walking into the old town was pretty much on the flat. We loved Nerja, it was fabulous. Thank you so much for all your help. Everything went very smoothly including the taxis which you and your office arranged, were on time, and the drivers were very helpful. HelenStay in Nerja at Tuhillo apts 1H April 30 to May 17th, 2005 Dear Jil : Just a few words to summarize our stay at Tuhillo that ended May 14th, 2005. The only words that come to mind is “Fantastic”. Tuhillo is, by far, in our view the best place to reside in Nerja. The setting is perfect (on a cliff facing the ocean with steps leading down directly to Burriana Beach, marvelous pool in a wonderful garden, all amenities close by and, of course, a short five minute walk to the center of Nerja and the Balcon d’Europe). The apartment was excellently furnished and met all our needs.... Bernadette and her staff were very helpful. We misplaced the advice of the linen pick up and procedure so, upon our call, she sent somebody the next day. We also missed out on gas for the water heater and again she gave us the proper instructions and sent a replacement container the next day. Here are a few comments on restaurants we discovered. 1. The small Cafeteria Bahia just in front of Tuhillo merits to be mentioned. Their food is very good and the price is very affordable. Probably one of the best values for your dollar. There is no view but you see the action on the street from the patio. 2. Restaurant “34” is very good but quite expensive. 3. Antica Roma, just a few houses down from “34”, has a fantastic setting but, unfortunately, the do not make the grade in Italian food at all. 4. On Burriana Beach, we preferred the Jose Cruz installation in contrast to AYO, Jose Cruz has much better service and a better choice on the menu. 5. The best quality we found in a restaurant was at La Fonda on Calle Gloria. There is a terrace on the second floor that gives a panoramic view and a wonderful ANDALUCIAN patio where we ate. All seven in our party (who chose different meals) found the food excellent. La Fonda also has a marvellous Tapas bar across the lane from the restaurant. Again, a place to recommend. 6. By far our most amazing discovery was a little Italian restaurant called Bella Italia on Calle Almirante Ferrandiz. Excellent Italian specialties at very affordable prices. A must to try. We also ate at various interesting restaurants in towns either close by or during our visits but I wanted to specify certain restaurants in Nerja. Even though we still have a number of areas we wish to discover in Europe, we will certainly come back to Nerja in a few years. Thanks to you and your associates for a wonderful stay. Best regards, Jacques Lucas Montreal, Canada P.-S. My spouse and I stayed over in Nerja for three additional nights and we chose to try the Paraiso Del Mar Hotel which is adjacent to Tuhillo. A very nice little boutique hotel with wonderful amenities. If you would have clients who come in before or wish to leave later on after a stay in Nerja, this is certainly a recommendation to make. FYI Hotel Caribeo is much more expensive, no access to the beach and more compact in lieu of rooms, terraces, etc. J.L.
Subject: RE: Villa Aritza Date: Sat, 1 Jan 2005 17:49:19 -0600 From: "Joyce Duesman" joyceduesmanatsolbroadband.com To: "Jil Clark" jilclarkatnas.net Jill, Just wanted to let you know, we had a nice visit to Nerja. The house was lovely. The weather was great while we were there. It did get cold at night and Bernadette did provide us some electric heaters for the bedrooms, when we addressed it with her. That was important because my cousin is recovering from cancer and we could not afford for her to get sick. That house probably needs heat set up in the bedrooms for winter rentals. One note--- we left before our cousins and they noted that the back garden took a hit from a really bad windstorm our last night there. A large potted plant blew over and broke. They meant to mention to Bernadette but forgot to when they returned the key. Thanks for filling the pool, it really made the back yard enjoyable and we were able to use the backyard grill one day and cooked out. The DVD was great too and we were able to watch alot of great movies that my cousins brought. Thanks for arranging that for us. I assume that DVD deposit check will be torn up---correct? How is that handled? Thanks again for making our holiday in Spain so special. Joyce Duesman
Subject: Thanks from Anders and Liisa! Anders & Liisa's first day at the Garden Apartment Date: Sun, 31 Oct 2004 12:59:55 +0100 From: "Anders Norestig" anders.norestigattelia.com To: "Jil Clark" jilclarkatnas.net Hello Jil! We are just back home in Köping, Sweden again after a very good week, see some photos. Liisa in the Garden Apartment poolWe do appreciate the arrangements you did for us. The Garden Apartment was excellent - we liked it a lot with it's open area / windows. It was very nice to sit on the terrace as well down at the pool. There is a cafe, Cafe del Mare, along the road at Burriana Beach owned by an former English actor. Very very good - do recommend to book a table in advance. We drove some 1000 km during this week - down to the Hot Springs Gibraltar - well ... Frigiliana yes!!!! Alhama (what an excperience to drive in the old town) - we did find the hot springs - they are two km on the way to Granada - turn left just before the Alhama River - small but hot. Granada and Alhambra yes!!! And a lot of other things.... Does Inter Sol also operate outside Spain? Thanks Anders & Liisa
Subject: Re: Holiday in Nerja Date: Thu, 28 Oct 2004 21:28:02 +0100 From: "Julie Costard" To: "Jil Clark" jilclarkatnas.net Hi Jil Thought I'd write to thank you for all your help arranging our holiday in Nerja this year. We had a great time staying in Las Fuentes which was just the right size for us with all mod cons and a good sized pool. As we'd mentioned to you when booking, my father-in-law finds it difficult to walk very far and Las Fuentes was ideal, being in the centre near to shops/bars and only a 5 min walk from the Balcon de Europa. Despite being so very close to the centre of the town the apartment was very peaceful and free from traffic noise. Thanks too for your restaurant recommendations. Nerja has many excellent places to eat to suit all tastes and budgets and your recommendations helped us to find many of these. Thanks for all your help and your quick replies to my (many) e-mails are much appreciated. We will be in touch soon to arrange next year's holiday! With best wishes. Julie Costard

Subject: Thank You for a Great Time in Nerja Date: Mon, 27 Sep 2004 13:19:25 -0400 From: Paul Fournier paul_lizzieathotmail.com To: jilclarkatnas.net Hi Jil This is something I meant to do whilst we were away in Europe, but never got around to doing. I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at La Hacienda in Nerja last February/March. Everything turned out perfect, the condo was cute and comfortable, and Nerja is a pretty, if not noisy town (especially at rush hour). We rented a car at Malaga airport and found our way to Nerja, and La Hacienda, in the dark. That was a bit tricky. We also went to Granada, Frigliana, and along the coast to Gibraltar. The south of Spain is beautiful. Actually, the whole trip was great. We were in Europe for 5 months and the time just flew by. We arrived back in Canada on July 13. Great experience, great memories. Once again, thanks for all your help and if we ever go back to the south of Spain, we will keep Nerja and La Hacienda in mind. Paul Fournier

It was so much more spacious then we imagined, lots of seating, good facilities and very clean.

We did indeed 'fall on our feet' ! Thanks for all you assistance. We will be back ! Regards Colin Shaw (and family)

Just a quick note to tell you what a great holiday we had at the parisio blanco villa. The villa was absolutley fantastic, very clean comfortable and everything we needed just to hand .The kitchen from a mothers point of view had everything you have at home ie . microwave cooker/oven fridge freezer, washing machine.

This villa has the most fantastic pool , which by the way you need a key to enter , so very exclusive and private with beautiful gardens . It is very close to Burriana beach so most evening we made our way down there for a meal . The restaurants were all great especially AYO'S were you get the most fantastic paella.

Had a great time, Miami45 was very good with wonderful views. We have been to Nerja now for the last 6 years so why stop now! We are thinking of going again next year 2005, around the same time 23 July to 6th August. We spotted La Hacienda this year and wonder if there is a 1 bedroom appartment available at that time. Also do you think the appartment would be nicer inside than Miami, which was good. Look forward to hearing from you re availability and price. Regards. David Wilson.

The flat was perfect especially the new upgrades that had been added since our previous visit in 2002 and the weather couldn't have been better. Bernadette said they were planning additional upgrades to the flats for the coming year. Could you let me know when 70 and 72 Carabeo are available for next June, July and August. I'm trying to do a little advance planning. Many thanks, Monica

The apartment was fine apart from complete water failure in Nerja the day we departed, so we were not able to clean the BBQ - apologies for that. Also could you pass on our thanks to Nick, who not only turned up with a lovely bottle of champagne during the week, but also completely surprised us when we celebrated Alison's 40th birthday at restaurant 34 last Wednesday with cracking bottle of Cava on behalf of Nick and yourself. As we both said - we'll have to get married every year! Many thanks, and we will be sure to recommend Intersol to our friends and colleagues. Steve
Subject: Nerja - Los Pinos Date: Sat, 24 Apr 2004 17:42:11 +0100 From: "Ian Thomson" k.thomson33atntlworld.com To: "Jil Clark" Hi Jil we just got back. What a beautiful place Nerja is. Real charm, variety and mellow atmosphere. Not sure how it might be in the Summer though! Found everything in order. Had a snoop around some of your other 'urbanizacions' too for future reference perhaps - particularly atBajamar which we had originally hoped to book. Weather was lovely of course. We kept on bumping into people who were saying that they were moving out there! Makes you think. Our son enjoyed himself v. much as it was all accessible especially the food and the beach - though too cold to actually swim I think and a heated pool would have been really special. ! Great little general store just down the road was a useful discovery. the only small thing is.....there should be smoke alarms! (We brought our own!!) given gas cookers / lots of people smoking etc. I know that each property is differently organised/equipped. We had German language TV!! (not my favourite, but it had its moments). Anyway, really couldn't fault it overall, property was extremely clean, well equipped, well located as per the description, very friendly and discreet maintenance people and very good value! So back here, amazingly it is v. warm - like summer - so that was a nice transition. Back to work too soon. Hope you are well. Regards and thanks. Angela. ********************************************************
