“Superb!”
Reviewed 14 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Fantastic base to explore this beautiful part of the world. There's something for everyone- beaches, mountains, quaint villages/towns ... and the city of Bilbao! The bright apartment is spotless, fully equipped and very comfortable. Outside there is a spacious terrace with plenty of seating and parasols (should they be required). There is plenty of information about the area and its attractions in the apartment but owners Igor and Alice are more than helpful if advice is required. They were particularly helpful with our day trip into Bilbao which was very enjoyable and very accessible using public transport A week in Ibarrangelou is simply not enough .....!

“Fantastic apartment with incredibly helpful hosts that really make it”
Reviewed 5 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

I could not recommend this place highly enough.

Glasshouse is the ground floor apartment at the end of a row of houses, ideal for two people, but would work for three, with the third sleeping on the futon in the living room. The garden is lovely, with table and chairs and sun loungers out there too. The apartment is light and airy, with large windows. It's also less than a 10-minute drive to Laga beach, which is stunning.

However, I would say that Alice and Igor really make it. They were incredibly helpful, yet unobtrusive. They have compiled a large ring binder with details of the local area, tips, walks, driving instructions etc., but the hosts actually talked us through what to do during our stay and made several recommendations. Their enthusiasm for the area was truly infectious. There are many nice touches, such as cool bags for days at the beach, cooking basics (coffee filters, oil, salt and pepper etc.) and beach towels. The kitchen is also very well appointed with appliances. The bed is very comfortable, too. As non-smokers we were slightly concerned, but smoking is only allowed outside and there is no smell/trace of smoking inside at all.

That part of the Basque coast is beautiful and offers lush forests and unspoilt beaches. Other than it being a little cool on a couple of days (late May), the area had an almost tropical feel to it, due to its position on the Atlantic coast. It is very different to the more arid parts of Spain, but we did get some very warm sunny days, too (28C). Igor and Alice told us that it can get very hot in the summer (35C), so it would be an ideal location for a beach holiday, with Bilbao, La Rioja, and San Sebastian all within striking distance. This was our first visit to the area, and other than in San Sebastian and central Bilbao, we hardly encountered any tourists from the UK. Driving was very easy and the roads are excellent.

We wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely book again on a return visit.

“Exceptional stay!”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a wonderful week in the Basque Country. The appartment was very nice, the atmosphere was great. We were very fortunate with plenty of sunny weather and enjoyed the wonderful countryside and nearby sights. The local food was exceptionally well. We felt very welcome and for sure will return for another vacation.

Highly recommended: the apartment was clean, comfortable and cozy. It was equipped with everything we needed…like we really felt like home. Beautiful garden!

The place is very peaceful, ideal to rest and it’s located perfectly to enjoy the surroundings.

On top of that, Alicia and Igor are great hosts: always friendly and helpful…thanks again for everything!

“wonderful experience”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our stay in this place was a great pleasure. Forst of all, Alice and Igor made us feel extremely welcome, had so many good ideas what to do in the neighbourhood and further away - the style of their place is exactly how you see it in the photos and loved it, very tasteful and it was so well-equipped we did not have to ask for anything else. We arrived on a Sunday and found not only some homemade cookies but a bottle of wine plus cereal, milk, coffee and fruit for Monday morning. We had the garden to ourselves, WLAN was really good and for those who need TV: many many channels! So all in all one of the best airbnb experiences we have had yet. Thank you and gracias, Alice and Igor!!!! See you soon, so looking forward!
