Basque Coast: 115 m² fully equipped flat for 6 people, 5 min. walk to the beach, between Bilbao and S. Sebastian


This spacious 115 m² apartment is in a quiet area near the town centre. It is only a short walk from the beach, 5 min. All exterior windows with a view to the mountains and the marsh (where there is a bird observatory). Fully equipped for six people comfortably accommodated, no sofa-bed. There is also a cot and a high chair for a baby. 

We expect to have elevators put in by the end of 2016, that will reduce the size of mi terrace in a 25%.

In Deba, in the very center of the Geopark of Basque Coast (certificated by UNESCO), near the Flysch Route, between Bilbao and San Sebastian. Deba is safe and crime is very low or nothing at all. The temperatures are usually mild. An ideal climate for those who want to flee the sweltering heat.

great place to stay

 Opinión escrita el Aug 18, 2016 acerca de una estancia el Aug 2016
Deba is a great place (population approx 5,000). It is safe at all time day and night. There is a real community feel, with children playing late into the night and a party atmosphere - the main street full of people drinking/talking, children playing. At the time we stayed there was live music each night close to the beach. There is a convenient super market 100 metres from apartment. Beach at Deba has large waves which my teenage children loved. We used Deba as a base for travelling to Bilbao, Pamplona, Biarritz, San Sebastian and Bayonne. All were not too much more than an 1 hours drive. My personal favourite was Bayonne. The apartment is large and comfortable and easily fit 2 adults and 3 children. Joxean is lots of fun. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome.

Good location,especially if you come by train as we did.well equipped close to town centre & beach. There are quite a few stairs to get to the flat, which is not so good with luggage,but lifts are being installed, so won't be an issue shortly

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.”

We stayed at Joxean's place for 2 weeks this summer and very much enjoyed our stay. The flat was clean, bigger than we expected and really nice to live in. Joxean was a lovely host, welcoming us with cheese and cider on our arrival! We got lots of tips from him, several ideas of trips we wouldn't have made otherwise. Bilbao was fantastic, and very easy to reach by train (the station is 5 minutes from the flat). We also traveled to San Sebastian and little places by the sea like Zarautz and Getaria, one of our favourite spots during our stay. When we weren't travelling, we enjoyed very much Deba's beach, quite long and with lots of waves for the kids. All in all, it was a fantastic stay. Not having a parking space was indeed a problem, but we never spent too much time searching. In the end, we walked or took the train anyway. Thank you Joxean for such a lovely stay !
Owner's Response: 
Thanks for taking your time to fill your review in.
I give some suggestions to better know the real basque way of life, that don´t appear on common touristic brochures.
When my guests tell me about their interests I can make better recommendations to satisfy them.
