Situated in the Upper Town area of historic Gibraltar. Octopus House is a world class home, in a world class location. With uninterrupted views across the Strait of Gibraltar towards Morocco and Spain you will be transfixed by the beauty day and night, in all weather. Our completely redesigned and refurbished town house is split over two levels on the upper slopes of Castle Steps giving the interior spaces breathtaking architectural proportion.
Our home is the perfect choice. You will find all the style and comfort that you need for a business trip, holiday retreat or an extended stay. Everything has been considered, from the thoughtfully designed fully equipped kitchen, which includes quooker on tap boiling water, soda stream for carbonating drinks, and all other utensils and appliances needed to create beautiful meals. There is 'Sonos' integrated sound system throughout the house which can connect you to an infinate stream of music. The wrap around upper terraces are perfect places to sunbathe, snooze and entertain. The sunrise and sunsets are the thing of dreams. Hours can be spent gazing out over the water towards Africa and Spain... (Worth noting that you don't get traffic noise in this house)
The living room and studio are versatile lounging and working spaces. All TV, WIFI etc is availble for use by guests. There is a log burning stove and we can supply local olive wood.
Three bedrooms, sleeping 6. (A day bed in the studio can accomodate a 7th guest). The bedrooms are connected by a plant filled balcony which gives more privacy, and a quite space to relax and swing in the hammock...
One large family bathroom and one ensuite shower room to the master bedroom.
There is a fully equiped utilty room (washer/dryer etc) on rear upper terrace.
The most important thing to note about Octopus House is the step access. This house is not suitable for guests with significantly reduced mobilty. The architectural nature of the maze of streets and passages in the Upper Town district means walking up steps is the norm. Our house is positioned half way up Castle Steps which leads to the Moorish Castle. One can drive to the top of the steps and walk down, but inevitibly staying in this amazing house means walking, up and down flights of stairs.
Free parking is available in our area. However I would suggest doing things by foot and bus in Gibraltar. Rent a car for trips in to Spain and to the beaches around Tarifa.
Guests will have the entire property to themselves.

The top terrace is unsuitable for young children.
