Testimonials

The following are just a few comments from some of our satisfied clients

Lesley & Derek own Cadizcasa. We have known them since 2005 and they are fantastic. They helped us with the initial purchase of our house and all sorts of things since. They keep our keys and check the house regularly. They are extremely helpful & knowledgeable not only about house purchases but everything to do with finding your way around the systems and helping with absolutely anything and nothing is a problem. Lesley speaks fluent Spanish and is always happy to help with official business. They are completely straightforward and honest. Can't recommend them highly enough. Hope you like what you see. We have many photos if you want to see some! Best regards Carolyn & Jim

We were absolutely delighted with the apartment in Calle Sopranis, which allowed us to feel part of the neighbourhood while still enjoying modern amenities. The decor is tasteful and the huge terrace made such a difference, letting us have quiet breakfasts outside and watch the sky change at sunset with a glass of wine in hand! The fish market was another huge bonus and we look forward to our next stay in Cadiz. Regards, Anne and Dave from South Africa

Dave and Anne

Thank you for the use of your lovely apartment. Good location and it has been just great. We really enjoyed cadiz and the apartnment and we leave with fond memories.

Lori mack

The apartment is in an ideal location to explore and saviour the delights of staying in the of city of Cadiz but with the added benefit of a superb outdoor living space that allows you to relax enjoy the sun and to be away from the excitement of the city. We thoroughly enjoyed the combination and would highly recommend the apartment for anyone visiting Cadiz with the owners being very accommodating, helpful and informative. We will certainly book again on our next visit Neville

"It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Derek and Lesley in the listing and sale of our home. While we have bought and sold a number of houses in Spain, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence when dealing with an Estate Agent, we genuinely couldn't recommend them highly enough" Daniel

Daniel

Buenos dias derek, Many thanks for everything. We've had a brilliant week and have loved everything about this city and your apartment. Hope to come back soon. regards, Jean and stewart

Jean and Stewart McAra

Hello Lesley. On the assumption that the sale goes through next Tuesday as planned, we would like to thank you and Derek for everything you have done for us over the past 5/6 years with the house in Lebrija. Although we did not use the Lebrija house that often, you have managed it for us exceptionally and we will always be grateful to you both for what you have done. Would recommend Cadiz Casa to anyone without reservation – I hope the new owners will be using your services if they are thinking of letting it out. All of our best wishes to you and Derek for the future. Kind Regards Andrew & Aileen

Andrew Thomas

Hi Derek I just wanted to let you know that we had a lovely week in your house. The house itself was immaculately clean and had everything we could want. We thoroughly enjoyed Lebrija - what a pretty town, and the locals appreciated our attempts to speak Spanish and loved Jessy and Jesua's Canarian accents! We found it a great base to explore the surrounding areas. Many thanks Lisa

Lisa

Bonsoir Dérek, Nous voulions vous dire que nous avons été très content du séjour à Lébrija, dans cette petite ville typique du sud de l'Espagne. Nous avons bien apprécié votre accueil ainsi que de la rapidité avec laquelle vous avez solutionné le problème du chauffe-eau. Nous espérons avoir laissé l'appartement dans un état correct. Bien cordialement Monchicourt JP Good evening Derek We wanted to tell you that we were very happy with the stay in Lebrija, in this typical small town in southern Spain. We enjoyed your hospitality and the speed with which you have solved the problem of the water heater. We hope to have left the apartment in a reasonable condition. sincerely Monchicourt JP

JP Monichourt

Hi Derek, I hope you are well? The house has been great. Extremely clean. Thank you once again for all your help, it's been a pleasure. Regards Tonya

Tonya

We had a great time at this lovely apartment and very spacious roofterrace in el Barrio Pópular, the ancient heart of Cádiz. Close to the tapasbars, restaurants and also the city beaches. It was perfectly clean and we had everything to our convenience. The ceiling fans helped to keep the warmth of. We didn't miss the lack of airconditioning at all. The owner is very helpful, and reacts almost immediately when you have a question. We stayed here for 2 weeks and we can recommend this apartment to everyone!

Inge

We had a fantastic week in Cadiz, Derek the owner was very friendly and helpful, and explained everything about the apartment. The apartment was beautiful, clean and just as described in the listing. Getting there: We arrived by train after a week in Fuengirola, via one night stop in Seville. We organised the train tickets in the UK which was very easy to do however we nearly missed our connecting trains on the way home due to the late train from Cadiz to Seville (Dos Hermanos) so I would give myself more than 20 minutes in future. However apart from that it was very easy to get around on the trains and we would definitely go back to Cadiz. The people were very friendly, the tapas bars and restaurants were amazing and there was usually some form of busking outside the cathedral every night. We loved the little narrow streets to walk around, the markets all the little squares and the beaches! We will definitely come back because we didn't have enough time to do everything we wanted to do and we would recommend this property to people as long as you can manage stairs to the top of the Penthouse, it was worth it every day!

Dear Derek, I have returned to Taiwan on July 8 safely. I would like to express my sincere appreciation for all your kind help for our stay at Lebrija. This was my first travel to Spain. I’ve long heard about people’s hospitality and it proved true because I did experience so. People in Spain do add high value to our travel. In particular you provided lots of extra assistance, which made our stay even more enjoyable and beautiful. We lost our luggage and you were always so patient and being willing to help. We (me and my travel partners) were all touched by your kind act. Words cannot fully show our appreciation. In the future if you visit Taiwan, please do contact me. Let me do something in return. Wish you and your family healthy and happy. Thank you thank you thank you !!! Best regards, Bonita

Bonita Hsu

Absolutely perfect in every way! The location was central to everything yet very quiet. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable, and though there was no air conditioning, there were overhead bedroom fans and several floor fans that kept the apartment a very comfortable temperature even on the hottest days. The owner Derek met us on arrival and was very knowledgable and helpful. I ended up forgetting my iphone charger and Derek was great about shipping it back to me at no charge. I really can't speak highly enough about this apartment, it exceeded all of our expectations, as did the town of Cadiz. Review Submitted: 17-Jul-2014 Date of Stay: Jun 2014

Cindy Lackey

Booked this apartment through cadizcasa and have to say it lived up to all our expectations. The booking process and pre arrival correspondence with Derek (Cadizcasa) went smoothly. Arrived via train and the apartment is no more than 10 minutes walk from the station and we arranged to meet Derek in the main square - no problems and he took us to the apartment. This is located on the top floor of a converted merchants house and is exactly as shown in the advertisement. Very comfortable, spacious, good air con and great views from the sun terraces. It is located right in the heart of the old town, but very quiet, and ideally located for bars and restaurants. We loved Cadiz, very reasonably priced bars and tapas, a bit of culture if you want it and great beaches. We used the local bus (very easy to use) along the seafront and jumped out where the beach gets a bit quieter. I would recommend Cadiz and this apartment wholeheartedly.

Stephen G

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed staying at the penthouse apartment - it was so well furnished and equipped, a real treat, especially the two terraces. Cadiz itself was very much how we left it a few years ago; whilst it was obvious that times are a bit harder, it was great to see it still pretty vibrant with the cruise ships as much a necessary evil as they were last time! We love it in the evenings once things quieten down a bit. We hope to come back again in due course and would certainly recommend you to anyone heading your way. Cheers and thanks again.

Andy and Laura Q

We would highly recommend this lovely home for a holiday of comfort and excellent amenities. The local village, a short walk away, is typically Spanish and showcases the strong community values. Evenings are a pleasurable experience of eating and drinking local specialities and watching the folks enjoying their family lives. Everything was such good value and cheap by UK standards. The house is as described and has everything you could want. With roof top, balcony or patio to sit out on you are spoilt for choice. If cooking at home is your thing then the local supermarket is really excellent with a wide variety of fish as crazy prices (cheap!). A great base from which to explore the area with Cadiz, Jerez and Seville within easy reach. Horse racing on the beach, flamenco, Sherry houses and great markets there is something for everyone. Bar Madrid offers wifi connections and such friendly service a great place to start and finish the day. We couldn't fault anywhere that we ate and loved the fact that no one spoke any English! A wonderful holiday was had by all. The whole experience has been fab from the information shared before booking to letting us in the house 3 hours earlier than expected! Loads of towels and sunbeds and a beautifully clean home.

S Doyle and family

Thank you for organising the wonderful house in Vejer. We had an amazing holiday and are looking forward to booking again with you for next year.

Denise and Martin

Since you have been managing my property and overseeing my rentals, I have not had one sleepless night. Quite a contrast to how things were with our previous agent. Having seen how you do business I am disgusted at the poor standards I have tolerated. Thank you so much for the excellent service you give. I would recommend you to anyone.

S Suttie

Lesley and Derek at Cadizcasa have looked after our property acquiring clients for Long term lets for several years and in that time their expertise and advice has been invaluable. They take the hassle out of letting property and have provided a complete service for our property management. Communication concerning all aspects of the management is always prompt and efficient and attention to detail is excellent. No problem is too great for them to deal with, from the initial contract through to clients exiting. All in all an excellent total all year round service!

Kevin and Denise

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cadiz city. The city is beautiful and very Spanish - just what we were looking for. The sun shone continuously and the tapas and red wine flowed, it was bliss! We stayed in the apartment ref 20505 in the Old Town and it was perfect. It is spotless, with lots of space and great facilities, and very central to bars, restaurants, tourist info office, bus stops and the train station. The lovely beaches were a short bus ride or 10min walk away through the lovely narrow streets. For a real taste of Spanish family life check out the beach at Playa de la Caleta on a Sunday afternoon - wonderful for atmosphere! Thank you to Derek and Lesley at Cadiz Casas for making us feel so welcome and comfortable, and for the accurate directions from Malaga! We would recommend this wonderful company to anyone looking for a break in Spain - reliable and stress free!

Sandra Niall and Cera

Nosotros en un principio no sabíamos si alquilar a Cadizcasa, pero desde un primer momento y cuando conocimos al agente (Leli) supimos que no íbamos a tener ningún problema y así ha sido. Hemos alquilado dos años y siempre hemos tenido respuesta a nuestras peticiones, no se puede pedir más, la casa está en muy buen estado y hemos disfrutado mucho en ella. No duden en alquilar con esta agencia porque es seria y eficaz. Les estamos muy agradecidos por habernos hecho fácil estos dos años.

Jorge V, Lebrija

I would like to take this opportunity to tell you personally that I enjoyed my holiday in your penthouse apartment immensely. The apartment was good, breakfast on the terrace in the sunshine was brilliant and the location was probably the best in Cadiz. ideal for walks in any direction. Please give my regards to Derek, he was most helpful.

Peter

Simplemente agradecerle el trato dispensado. Hemos pasado unos días geniales en el apartamento que nos dejaron. Muy bonito el piso, muy limpio y genial. No dude que el año próximo volveremos y que siempre que algún amigo quiera ir a cadiz les pondré en contacto con ustedes.

Rafa Espinoso

It was bad news, it never rains it pours! However, every cloud has a silver lining. The silver lining was revealed to me (again) by the professional way in which you dealt with the matter. So a big thank you to you both.

Mr Newman

Thank you so much for your swift response and your infinite understanding! It is nice to hear that people appreciate our flat and good news that the neighbours are happy- again entirely thanks to you and Derek.

S Court

We don´t know how we would have survived without Cadizcasa. We are so grateful for all of your help, delivered in such a professional and friendly manner. We feel very lucky to have been "looked after" by you!

N & S London

I would just like to say what an excellent Newsletter you produce. I am bombard with Newsletters about this and that but yours stands head and shoulders above the rest for its content, sound advice and readability. I look forward to the next edition.

Ian and Joan Coulter

Thanks for a wonderful stay and the ease with which it was all organized. We enjoyed this latest immersion in Spanish culture very much - the area was new to us, and it has so much to offer. We wish you continued good luck with your business!

Ingrid + Clive

We wanted to thank you so very much for your help in finding our new home in Spain. We found your website when starting our search in the UK, and from our first contact with your company we were delighted with your professionalism and competancy and general know-how in manouvering through what we thought would be a minefield of finding our new home. You had a wide range of well-maintained properties for us to view. Your explanations of the rental contract made it seamless for us to move in with no trouble. Indeed, the after-care service is just as good as ever as you are there for us when we have any 'moving-in niggles', thank you again.

Ann and Kevin

Thank you for a fabulous holiday. My family have all enjoyed Vejer and are asking to come back again next year. The house was very clean and well furnished. The pool was close to the house and well maintained. Your advert was very accurate regarding distances and amenities. We have all enjoyed our holiday and will come to stay here again.

M. Sadovich

Just wanted to say thanks for the work you had done on the house before our arrival last week. Really pleased with the results.

A. Quaile

Best cleaned house we have ever stayed in. We will come to visit again next year.

M Klass

God bless your keyholding service, I would be lost without it and thank you for all the extras you do at no charge.

Claire

Thank you very much for the efficient and courteous service we have had. The house is in better condition now than it has ever been since we started to rent and all the clients to date have commented on the high standard of your service. It means a lot to us to know that you are there taking care of our investment. Many, many thanks.

I Geddes

Thank you for your candid and highly informed assistance. We have looked several times in the Chiclana area but you were the first agent to explain the exact legal situation to us regards buying property. I shudder to think what might have happened if we had not found your website. Many thanks for your friendship, honesty and help.

A.Buckingham

Just a quick note to say how much we have enjoyed our week in Cadiz. It has been a great city to explore, and an excellent jumping off point to enjoy what the wider region has to offer. The flat has been an ideal base, we have really enjoyed it here.

Mike and Sue Keir

I would like to thank you for the excellent service you have provided over the past year and for getting our rental property on its feet and earning us a good income. You are by far the best rental agents we have dealt with. You are efficient, thorough, courteous and friendly. Thank you for all your work.

R. Winston

Your restaurant recommendations were excellent and we had some very good food which we will remember for a long time to come. It was a pleasure to be in the hands of experts and we will certainly book with you again and would recommend your company to anyone. Last but not least thank you for dealing with the airport when our cases went missing. We would have been stuck without your translation skills. Best wishes and we hope your business continues to be a great success.

P & S James

I am very happy to give some feedback after this long 2 year rental as I was really very pleasantly suprised at the state of the house and contents. Also your management has always been most efficient in terms of rental collection, bill settlement and unexpected repairs and the liaison with the tenants for the arrangement of the external painting. To summarise efficient, effective and very pleasant and reliable management. Totally reliable which has always given me such peace of mind. Thank you.!

Ms V Bell, Vejer de la Frontera

I certainly want you to market my properties on your website as I regard your company as one of the best in the area.

S.Marley

Thanks for everything you have done for us this year, you have both been totally awesome and have eradicated our Cadiz experience from the nightmare it was becoming- we cant thank you enough. Our kindest regards

Steve and Ros

I would just like to say thank you for your tenacity in keeping our sale on board. I know you worked very hard and I think a lot of agents would have given up. I spoke to the buyers the other day and they asked me to thank you also for all you did to help them in difficult times. Best wishes for the future and we will certainly recommend you to all our friends.

John S

We would like to say a big thank you for sorting out the problems in our apartment. It was really upsetting to arrive and find the place flooded with sewage and to not know who to turn to. It would have been impossible for us to sort without your language skills and knowledge of the system. Everything is back as it was and we just had a great week there which we never thought would be possible again. Many thanks

SRL

Just a quickie to say a H U G E thank you for the latest newsletter. It was so interesting, thorough and informative, and brought us right up to date with the situation in Spain - as you know we are back in the UK ! We really appreciate all the hard work that has gone into the making of the newsletter, and trust you will be rewarded in terms of the continued success of your business.

Roger and Elly

I never thought renting would be so straight forward and stress free (that’s for me, not yourself)!

S Litter

Thank you for the time you gave us and your endless patience when we came to look for property in the Costa de la Luz. You were very honest with us and you made us sort out in our minds what we really wanted to buy. Not only are you very competent estate agents, you are nice people and dealing with you has been a complete pleasure.

Louise and John

Derek and Lesley were a huge help to us in the sale of our Spanish house. We could not have coped without their friendly and efficient service. We had complete peace of mind that the property was safe in their hands and professionally marketed. They were scrupulously honest in all of our financial dealings together and provided a good service when we sold through them

Ken and Jenny Grist

We stayed just off the Plaza de Espana so discovered the garden at the Califa first day. Vera Cruz was closed I'm afraid, but we didn't starve in Vejer! The best meal we had while we were there was at El Campero in Barbate even if we did have to eat it standing up. Anyway we're now back home in what feels like a very cold UK. Despite Derek's bad feeling about the wind we had a wonderful week. We appreciate we were lucky with the weather at this time of year and we loved Cadiz and surrounds. We took the ferry over to El Puerto Santa Maria and also made trips to Sanlucar and Jerez, visited a few Bodegas and ate very well in each place. The apartment was perfect for us. We made very good use of the terrace (though I resisted the temptation to barbecue) and ate there most evenings. The fish in the market was just too good to pass up. We plan to spend more time in Spain from next year (when I retire) and we'll certainly want to come back to Cadiz. I hope when we do we'll be able to stay again in your lovely apartment.

Peter and Beverly, France

We are back in Belgium after staying in your holiday town house in Lebrija. We had a wonderful time there and would like to thank you for this. We will recommend this apartment to our friends and family.

Giusy, Belgium

The house has been great and we would definitely recommend your service to anyone wanting to let long term. Thank you for sorting out the problem with our car and for your patience in explaining all the ins and outs of living in Spain. Lucy will be calling you for a holiday let for her and the kids as I mentioned. For now all we can say is a very big thanks to you guys. You deserve a successful business and we will not forget you.

Jim and Cheryl

We just wanted to thank you for the excellent service you have given us from the first call we made to you. It was a worry for me coming here for 6 months as you know but you made it seem very easy. The winter has seemed shorter than back home - must have been the sunshine! The decision has now been made that we will be moving here permanently so you are not getting rid of us as we will definitely be using you to find our new home in the sun. Thank you again for everything you have done for us.

J & P Waterstone

"I met Lesley and Derek of Cadizcasa when they first showed me round the property we bought in Spain and then I was told that they could help out with furnishings etc.- This was just what I needed. They have helped make the purchase in Spain stress free and everything they have done for me has been very good value. I have used them for everything, furnishings, electrics and building work. Lesley must have spent hours in the shops looking for the best value bedding and smaller items for the house. Photos have been emailed to me and different suggestions have been offered when I was not sure about anythying. Different price ranges have been offered so I could choose something in my budget. Friends went to stay in my house last week and they have said to many people how nice everything is. I had to admit - I did nothing - Lesley and Derek did it all!! If we bought another property in Spain we would definitely use them again for everything. I could not have managed without them".

Maureen, El Ejido

We have been extremely satisfied with the quality of workmanship and timeliness of completion with the variety of jobs Cadizcasa have undertaken for us - including plumbing work, electrical work, carpentry and tiling. Their response when we had a "weekend emergency" was first class! We would and do happily recommend their services.

J & A, Lebrija

Lesley and Derek at Cadizcasa have been invaluable in helping to set up and furnish our holiday home. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is accomplished with the minimum of fuss. They have the contacts and the know-how and are never further away than a quick email. We depend on them in getting things done.

Gerard and Eileen Galvin, Basingstoke

Lesley and Derek at Cadizcasa have been looking after our house in Vejer since we completed on it in 2007. Not only are they extremely courteous and friendly but there is no end to their talents and capacity for problem solving!!! All we have need to do is email them with a request, no matter how ridiculousand it gets sorted out. This would include not only all the usual keyholding aspects but also completely organising from purchse to getting our lighting, heating, shelving, security and shopping for us pre arrival. Meeting up in Carrefour to help us (non Spanish speakers) purchasing beds, sorting out various bills at the townhall, purchasing small household items when we dont know where to get them!! In fact the only thing we havent persuaded them to do is babysit. In short they allow us to feel totally relaxed about being non resident knowing our house is in a safe and conscientious pair of hands, it is rather like having a good relative looking after the place.
Many thanks.

Mrs L Niemy, Vejer

On the fridge/freezer front, you have come up trumps again, it is perfect . We managed to get to Chiclana and got some sausages and bacon from the English butcher you recommended and they were great, will be certain to use again.

Dick

Thanks ever so much Leslie - once again what would I do without you.

Maureen.

You always kindly switch everything on for us.When /If the gas needs replacing I find great difficulty with the boiler.Its because I am not used to it and would like to familiarise myself more. Thanks again for everything.

Regards Stephen

We bought a holiday home in Vejer two years ago. Cadizcasa have provided invaluable help and advice about how things work in Spain, have helped sort out bill payment problems for us and came to our support when the electricity got cut off. We strongly recommend their services.

A Cameron, Vejer

Having bought and sold houses in Spain, we can thoroughly recommend Cadizcasa for a first class professional service.
They are excellent guides to the area, they know so much! There is no pressure with Derek and Lesley they simply guide you through the process.
At a time when it is not always easy to sell property, Derek and lesley secured the sale of our property at a good price, their negotiationg skills are excellent. We were also receiving calls from other agents in the area keen to sell our house..........at a much lower rate. We stuck with Derek and Lesley trusting them to secure a better deal for us, which they did.
If you want to buy or sell your property on the Costa de la Luz, they are the agents i would trust implicitly, they work tirelessly on their clients behalf, we know!
I also think it goes to show what exceptionally good people they are, as they work for charities in the area, and no one has to do that! without their support alot of animals would have gone hungry last winter. Well done you!

D & I Morris

I would be happy to recommend Lesley and Derek at Cadizcasa to anyone buying property in Spain. Their knowledge of the area, culture, language skills and instant efficiency in getting things organised have made buying a property and maintaining it afterwards as stress free as possible. We would be lost without them!!

Sian and Carl

Thank you so much for our wonderful weekend in Spain. It was more like a holiday.

Judith and Adrian Piper

Thank you for the considerable amount of time you spent with us showing us around the area. Also the beautiful church and castle. The whole visit went very smoothly and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mr F de Souza

Many thanks for your care and help during our visit. Our trips around were very helpful. Looking forward to seeing yu both again. Lots of luck

Barry and Shirley

We want to say a huge thank you for being just the greatest hosts, for not only showing us the properties but for showing us around so much of the area. You both made a three day visit so interesting and diverse, with your knowledge and expertise.

Joy and Mike Wilby

I must say that I was very impressed by the friendly nature of your staff. Everyone offered constructive and honest advice. Although we never felt at all pressurized into making a decision to buy your staff did a superb job in helping us come to a decision.

David Williams

Just to thank you once again for the help and kindness that you showed to us both on our trip last week. We had three enjoyable days and met some very nice people.

Brian and Carol

Thank you both for the friendly way you showed us round on our recent visit. It made our trip so much more enjoyable. Hope to see you in the near future. Best wishes

Ernie and Mo

We bought a holiday home in Vejer two years ago. Cadizcasa have provided invaluable help and advice about how things work in Spain, have helped sort out bill payment problems for us and came to our support when the electricity got cut off. We strongly recommend their services.

A Cameron, Vejer

I would like to thank you both for all your time and patience showing us around the Costa de la Luz and the house site. We are thrilled to have bought our new house and are looking forward to moving in, be it as a holiday home or perhaps even full time! The temptation to move permanently is becoming overwhelming...... Again, thank you both for the very professional, honest and welcoming visit.

Cari

Thank you so much for your care and kindness. It will be mentioned many times when we talk to our friends.
Love

Beryl and Jack

Just to say thank you so much for your hospitality and kindness on our recent trip to Spain. You gave us a very enjoyable and informative few days and we came away feeling we had made some new friends already. We are very excited about our new future which will include our new villa. It was great to meet you and look forward to seeing you in the not too distant future.

V & R Simmonds

Just to thank you for your help and advice with regards to our property.

L& T Mountford

We have been working with Cadizcasa since meeting Lesley and Derek when we began the long process of purchasing our house in the Costa de la Luz in 2006. Since we signed contracts earlier this year, Lesley and Derek have been invaluable. They have organised pretty much everything that has needed to be done in order to get the house up and running, including negotiating with utility companies, sourcing furniture and lighting and arranging our first tenants for us. We have found them to be trustworthy, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly and can recommend them highly to anyone in our situation.

Gaynor Egan and Sean Gilbert

If you have a property in the Costa de la Luz in Spain, then Cadizcasa handles all your needs with friendly, sound, honest advice and service in all aspects of rentals, sales, furnishings and legal matters. They take the hassle away!

Kevin Rowen

Thank you so much for making our weekend very special and for the in-depth information you gave us enabling us to decide that we would definitely like to buy the property in such a lovely area. Your approach is very professional and meant a great deal to us.

L & S, Costa de la Luz

Many thanks for your time and patience.

Sally and David Brand

We have recently returned and although we have not purchased a property on this occasion we would like to say how wonderfully you treated us. Nothing was too much trouble and we were relieved to find that there was no "hard sell" during any part of the trip.

T & L Johnson

Thank you so much for all your friendly help, advice and friendship you gave us over the weekend. We had a great time and have decided to go ahead. We cannot wait to move to Spain.
Love

Clive and Anthea

Thank you once again for all your help in finding our "Houses in the Sun".

John & Jenny, Wendy & Dave and Jed & San

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for a brilliant three days and to say how helpful you were. You went our of your way to show us some lovely sights and views and really made our trip worthwhile. It seemed like a holiday to us. Nothing was too much trouble for you and it really made the weekend for us.

G Ellis

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our recent visit to Spain. We really appreciated the time you spend with us, showing us around the area.

John and Anne Cornforth

It was one of the things a lot of people think about but never do, a place in the sun. After a lot of soul searching etc we decided to go for it and began to research Spanish property on the internet as a start of the process.

We put together a list of options/requirements that had to be met.

*It must be accessible from more than 1 airport with good roads.

*It must have a Train Station. (not everybody drives).

*Typically Spanish.

*Big enough with supermarkets, banks, shops, market, bars, restaurants etc

The list is endless, but we found a property that met all our criteria and booked an inspection trip with the company who were advertising the property.

This inspection trip with Lesley and Derek McEwan went very well and we decided to take this a step further. The next step was to look at the cost of purchase, what extras need to be added (IVA this is a purchase tax, NIE number, Solicitors fees, Bank Account, etc). The property was Off Plan (when will it be completed), stage payments (what percentage of purchase price and when), how do you transfer money, Spanish Mortgage. These are some of the questions you need to ask.

Then when I enquired how I go about the next steps of utilities, furnishing, solicitors, builders etc. I was told that Derek and Lesley at Cadizcasa can help.

I contacted Derek and Lesley and explained what I wanted and could they help me, I got a positive response and we decided that they would hand hold me through the process.

The first step was to look for a solicitor to handle the process and Derek and Lesley were able to recommend a couple so we had a choice and decided on a company called DN Law. This company met all our requirements, our solicitor, Vanessa Nacher was English speaking, they gave us an up front estimate of costs for the purchase of our house, this went smoothly, there were no surprises and the bill was as per estimate.

The next step was to get the house habitable and this was where Derek and Lesley were invaluable.

The house was completed but, without a kitchen (This is normal in Off Plan builds). This was good news as we could have the kitchen and appliances we wanted.. Electric Oven, Gas Hob, American Fridge, Dishwasher, Washing Machine, Microwave etc, what style units, worktops and was able to send photos of our requirements. We were given a range of prices and goods so we could pick what we wanted to our specification and budget, they even got the American Fridge in the sale with a discount that they passed on to us.

The next thing was Air Conditioning (be careful with this as when they advertise pre installed Air-Con, this means that all the ducting and grills are in place but you need to purchase the actual A/C unit). Yet again we were given a list of prices and specifications and a cost to install. Finally, was the last of the big things, the boiler. This again met our requirements and was fitted to a high standard. These were the 3 big items and our expectations were exceeded.

General furnishing came next and the list was endless:- sofas, dining table and chairs sideboard, chests of drawers, beds, garden furniture, barbeque, lighting, TV (another deal with a 200 euro saving in the sales), DVD, Freeview etc. Yet again, with modern technology we were able to get exactly what we wanted with price options to meet our budget.

Finally came all the pots and pans, towels, cutlery, bed linen, kettle, toaster, kitchen utensils, bathroom fitments etc the list seemed endless, but as always this was all delivered in a timely manner as everything was completed for my first visit to my new house.

I cannot thank Derek and Lesley enough for the service they offered to make the experience of buying my property in Spain an enjoyable one, their attention to detail and advice was second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
