A great, central location for a stay in the Basque Country

My friend and I from Melbourne, Australia based ourselves in Deba for a short stay in the Basque Country to visit the sights and enjoy the cuisine and we weren't disappointed. We enjoyed the area very much and particularly enjoyed our day trips to San Sebastian, Gurnika and Bilbao. Joxean was a very welcoming host. He gave clear directions to the apartment, he met us on arrival, helped us with our luggage and moved his car so that we could park our car close to the apartment and then served us bread, cheese and cider of the region. He really couldn't have been more helpful and even guided us in booking the very best Michelin star restaurants. The apartment was clean and very much as represented in the photos, we had everything we needed for our stay in the north of Spain. The brand new elevators worked very well. We were also very pleased to discover that Deba is a stopping place for the pilgrim walkers on the Camino de Santiago. We met some very interesting people on The Way of St James and this added to our Basque Country experience.

Our early September stay in Deba
The apartment is well appointed, comfortable and tranquil at night. Joxean is a very welcoming and helpful host who gave us lots of good advice on places and restaurants to visit--and in reality many of the other Deba restaurants had great ambiance but only basic cuisine. As a couple we enjoyed the sunny balcony off the kitchen but it is small and the terrace off the main bedroom gets no sun and has no view. Deba is not considered a tourist attraction in itself, but the locals are very friendly as is the tourist office. The town is full of life in the evenings and the large sandy beach is popular with swimmers and surfers alike. The easy to access railway has a regular service all along the coast from Bilbao to San Sebastián. All in all we had a most enjoyable holiday with plenty to see and do. We were very happy with our choice of apartment.

Owner´s response:
It´s been a pleasure to host this couple, the ideal ones for an owner who rents his apartment.
In fact Deba is ideally located to visit Basque Country, most local people (population around 5.000) are really friendly, the beach is wide enough with all services at season and prices are lower than in the cities.

Lovely apartment in great location
We really really enjoyed our 2 week stay in Joxean's flat in Deba. The flat was spacious for two of us and great that it was really cool inside even when 38 C outside. It is really well equipped for cooking and relaxing , including good wifi and things for fun on the beach. All the rooms were a good size. The small balcony off the kitchen gets great afternoon and evening sun and has a good view onto the hills. We enjoyed sitting on a couple of chairs reading. The balcony off the main bedroom is larger but doesn't get much sun - it's good for drying the washing.

Joxean gave us a good welcome, helped us park the car and gave us lots of information and recommendations about the variety of things to do. There's plenty of leaflets in the flat. Generally small roads and parking can be tight in Deba in evenings and weekends when people come for the beach but where the flat is, is there are a few options. 

Deba is a great location, it's only 10-15 minutes walk through town to a good beach. A few minutes to the supermarket. It's five minutes to the train station where there's an hourly service to San Sebastian and Bilbao and places in between. In fact we'd say a car isn't needed! There are lots of lovely walks directly from the flat - we did a few that were circular and a few where we got a bus or train one way. 

The coast and hills were beautiful and particularly at low tide because of the geological flysch rocks.

In Deba there are nice places to eat, not particularly touristy, a good friendly local feel. The tourists generally are those on the Camino de Santiago trail.

Overall, a lovely flat with a helpful owner/host in a beautiful location and a relaxing holiday.

            Joxean's Deba Apartment

 Left on Oct 18, 2016 for a stay in Sep 2016    
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This apartment in the charming village of Deba was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equiped, the bathroom clean and spacious and we all loved the red leather couch. The views from some of the windows were lovely. Joxean was extremely helpful and welcoming from day one. He greeted us with a local snack of bread, cheese and sardines (or anchovies?) and poured us the wonderful hard cider that is poured from overhead. He had plenty of maps and suggestions for local activities and food choices. He was responsive to all of our needs during our time there also. The apartment is close to the train station, beach and everything in town. Parking was limited, but never a real issue. The biggest downside was the elevator construction that was going on at the time of our visit. It was noisy and smelly and the stairs that needed to be climbed to the third story apartment were challenging. Make sure this project is completed unless you don't care about climbing stairs and are out all day. The apartment could also be improved with better lighting and taking off the plastic sheeting on the beds and getting softer sheets. One other point would be to make sure you know how to use the appliances before Joxean leaves. We never did get the stereo system to work, but were able to figure out the stove, dishwasher and washing machine after experimenting and reading the guides that Joxean left in the bookshelf...all written in Spanish only, but with good illustrations.

Review on Airbnb. Stay in December 2015 by Ross J.
“Joxean's flat is in a great location in the town of Deba. He is an excellent host who takes great pride in the region of Spain in which he resides. He is very knowledgeable and is available by message if you have any questions. The flat is great for a family with a well equipped kitchen (several markets nearby), and good sized rooms. The flat also has a patio (we didn't use because of winter), and good laundry facilities. Joxean was very gracious about us being tardy for our meet-up appointment due to some car rental issues and is a really nice guy. We had a great stay at his flat and would definitely recommend it.”
