Dear Jil,

Back in Holland again we have only the memories of the beautifull weather and the wonderfull stay in the Garden Appartment in Nerja. The Garden Appartment is really a nice appartment. We enjoyed the pool in the garden.

Probably you have heard about ...

Once more, we had a wonderfull time in Nerja and espacially in the garden appartment. We became aquainted with Nick and learned that he is a very nice guy. Please remember me to him.

With kind regards,

Harry Zijlstra

From: "Barry Marks"

Hello Jil

just to let you know we had a great holiday and the Villa was very nice. Very comfortable. Also in case you get any further enquiries regarding the TV, it appears that there must be some kind of cable system since the incoming arial provided a number of channels including BBC1, BBC2, ITV, CH4, CH5, sky movies max , sky sports 1 and 2, eurosport, sky news, CNN and a number of other foreign channels.

I also was pleasantly surprised by the size of the pool, the picture does not really do it justice and the pool was bigger than it looks from the picture. (I took some video of the outside of the villa from which I can extract individual shots if you need any new ones, there may be something better I have not looked closely ).

I did notice one potential problem in the villa ...

Please do not consider this as in a negative sense as I have already mentioned we were very happy with the Villa and would certainly consider using it again, or perhaps any other properties you have if this is the general standard.

regards
Barry Marks

Hi Jil

Just a quick e mail firstly, to say how well the holiday went. The apartments were excellent and the pool area was more than satisfactory. Everything went like clockwork. Thanks for your help in sorting us out.
My next request is a bit of a long shot. My boss is going over to Nerja week after next and is looking for accommodation. In all there are 5 couples and the nights they require accomm for are 4th/5th/6th/7th Sept. Can you help at all. I would appreciate it if you could come back to me earliest you can.

Best regards

Just a quick note on the house. As a self catering family in the area for over twenty years, I have to say that the house was amongst the best equipped and maintained we have stayed in. There were no 'locked' cupboards, and plenty of general household equipment. It really is a credit to its owners.

Kind Regards

Dear Jil:

I can't thank you enough for all you did for us from the initial booking and progressive information to the final hand-holding during the decision-making the Monday before our departure. You went above and beyond. Thanks so much.

The accommodations @ Carabeo 68A were wonderful, 5star - location, view, amenities, everything clean & spacious. We were even pleased to find a safe, iron & board + loads of closet space (not mentioned on the webpage). And when you said everything was within walking distance, you weren't kidding. And not to mention the secluded roof-top sun terrace, plus falling to sleep to the sound of the waves ... ahhhhhh memories we will never forget. I could go on and on.

You'll be hearing from us again, and over time expect to hear from our friends.

As recommended, paella on the beach. see photo just to give our names a face

Thank you - truly you were a wonderful help to us.

Dear Jil:

We are thoroughly enjoying Nerja and are very happy with the accommodation; thank you for sugesting this unit. The sunny exposure and recent rennovations make it very pleasant. The service provided by Mendez & Bernadette is excellent. We are quite interested in coming back next year for the same period. Would you have a similarly nice location available just a little closer to downtown, perhaps overlooking the water (or is this impossible?)

Nick dropped in to see us in January while he was in town. It was nie to meet him.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Dear Jil,
Our holiday in Nerja was just wonderful. Thank you so much for recommending 72 Carabeo. Our holiday was a 'second honeymoon' to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary - and our first child free holiday for 17yrs. I can't imagine a more romantic location - it certainly topped the original honeymoon, a wet weekend in Cornwall! We loved the apartment and its position - our own house seems very quiet without the sounds of the sea in the background. We do hope to go back again soon - to Carabeo of course, although we'd quite like no. 70 with its roof terrace next time. We noticed that Bernadette's company were decorating no 68 - will this be appearing on your books?
Thanks once again,
Melanie Bridle

We had such a lovely time at the Residensol 13 that we want to go back again next year. Any idea when you will be taking bookings for September 2003?

Nerja is a beautiful place and we were fortunate enough to try some really good restaurants:

34 on Carabeo - we went there twice - excellent all round Pepe Rico - centre of town (not sure of street) a lovely lunch in the Spanish flower scented courtyard garden Sloans, Manuel Marin (off Castilla Prerez) - new restaurant opened in June, very friendly but needs more people to create a bustling atmosphere. They do a 8 course summer banquet and also Sunday lunch (Scottish owned) Los Barilles, Carabeo - tiny Spanish bar only open in the evenings serving platters of cured ham, local cheese and a charming Chorizo Inferno (pieces of chorizo served on a kebab over a flaming teracotta dish) - delightful atmosphere and very popular.

Please advise once bookings are open for September

Kind regards

Helen and Nick Kaminsky

Just a quick note to thank you very much for your assistance with our holiday this year. Everything went very smoothly from the minute we were picked up at Malaga airport. The apartment was very comfortable, very well equipped and handy for the main beach. Although some of the locals were saying it was cold for the time of year and very like Autumn it was fine for us and we had a great holiday.

Thanks again for your help.

Hi Jil

Just to let you know, we all had a brilliant holiday in Nerja. Our house was lovely - just what we were looking for. La Hacienda was a great place for Jack - he made lots of new friends and it was perfect as we left our front door open and he could come and go as he pleased (usually with other children following close behind). Nerja is a pretty village. We had an excellent meal in Frigiliana (hard work getting to the top but entirely worth it), great paella at La Restinga and we just had to go for a curry in Nerja one evening! We went to see the Caves and also took Jack to the water park in Torre del Mar (conveniently next to a shopping centre!) and spent some time with our friends in Benalmadena. So all in all a very relaxing two weeks. We would all definitely go back. Everything arranged by Inter-Sol couldn't have gone any smoother. Thanks very much.

Best wishes

Suzanne, Simon and Jack

Hi Jil, just to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had at Los Pinos .Number 11 was exactly what we'd hoped for, very well equipped, although 3 sunloungers would have been nice......... to save playing musical beds.Nerja is just as we remembered, we found some super places to eat where we hadn't visited before. We did notice quite a lot of building going on, and hope that Nerja won't become so built up that it loses its village feel. Thanks for all your help.

Hi Jil, just a line to say we had a fantastic time in Los Pinos 20, Nerja was as wonderful as ever, although a little more built up then the last time we were there I hope they don`t spoil it with too many more complexes, number 20 was very well equipped but three sunbeds would have saved some fights around the pool!!!! Langhams restaurant was new and we had a fabulous meal there on our second Saturday, it is well worth a try.All in all it was a brilliant holiday and I hope we will be back to Nerja soon,if you have any other areas similar (not too busy) I would be very grateful for any info Thanks again,

Hi Jill

I just wanted to pass on our thanks to you and also the family which allowed us to stay in their beautiful home - Hacienda 28.

The Villa was lovely, in an excellent location and has wonderful facilities. The view from the balcony stunning and a welcome sight in the mornings and to sit on and have a quiet drink at night.

We all had a great stay and really enjoyed ourselves in Nerja.

Please pass on our thanks to all concerned.

I just wanted to check that the keys were discovered when we left on Saturday morning. There was no answer at the door of the Club Hotel so I left the keys under the front door next to another set that had just been left by someone else vacating a Los Pinos house.

We had a fantastic time in Nerja and we were very happy with the accommodation. We will definitely be going back at some point,

To: Jil Clark jilclark@nas.net

I just wanted to send a note to tell you how much we enjoyed our stay in Nerja and our accommodations at the Bajamar I #7. The town was wonderful and we enjoyed trying as many different restaurants as we could. We used your suggestions for 34, AYO, and el gatto Negro and would definately suggest that you keep them on your suggestion list. There was an irish family who also visted those establishments and we give them " two thumbs up".

If I ever talk to someone who is considering the costa de sol, I would certainly recommend Nerja and Inter-sol. If you need to use us a a reference for other American famlies traveling with small children, you may do so.

There are so many places in the world to visit, I don't believe that we will be back to Spain or Nerja in the near future, but will have very fond memories of our stay there.

Good morning Jill,

I just had to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay. This was just perfect and the service was impeccable. We had a small problem upon our arrival with the gas stove ( in part due to our ignorance) and Bernadette sent her son right away to help and this on a Saturday night. We also had the pleasure of meeting Nick a real gentleman. Our only complaint is that it was not long enough...next time we will reserve at least 2 weeks.

Again thank you very much for your professionalism it makes it so easy. I just wished more people were like you.

Already having rented a house for a month in Motril, we discovered we were to have guests we had no place for. So I found Inter-Sol on eBay (of all places) and took my chances. Well, the Gods were smiling down at me when I did. My extra friends and I, via e-mails, secured Carabeo #72 with Inter-Sol, crossed our fingers and flew to Spain.

Although finding Carabeo #72 was a tad curious (and we found it before it became available,) once there we were stupified and drop-jawed. When at last we found it and we walked out on the little terrace alongside the apartment, immediately we saw Enchantment trickle out of its quaint door onto Calle Carabeo. Old world, and definitely European, charms worked their ways up from the small canteloupe-wedge slice of beach onto which waves crashed from the Mediterranean fifty feet below.

Our first glimpse came near sunset, and I swear there were Sirens humming on the rocks around which the water swirled. Now, once we took possession and could scope out the place, we were three times over more glad than when we first saw it. Although small, for a couple and a child (leave the child home!) we loved sunning on the balcony/patio, watching wierd Spanish shows on the TV, waking at sunrise to the sound of waves.

Listen, I am sure there are jaded people out there who may yawn and say, yeah, did that. But if you are open to the joys of days spent under the sun on the funnest place on the Med, go to Caja Carabeo in Nerja, find Ayo's at the far north end of the beach, say hello to Paco and eat his paella. You'll be annoying your friends with ooo's ahhh's and stories for weeks after.

Hi Jil we returned from Spain on Sunday. Just as you said , Nerja is a jewel , loved it. The location of Las Fuentes was
perfect , right in the heart of things. We had a personal relationship with Cafe Mirasol. The apartment was fine with a few
deficiencies... (issues discussed with owner - .ed) should be noted. However , we had a great holiday and definitely plan to
return , perhaps to another unit. By the way, your info packet was most helpful as was your entire organization. It was a
