 Testimonial
"Casa y Campo - Karen O’Hagan has been our property manager for the villa we own in Bedar as well as the project manager for the various building projects we have undertaken since we purchased the villa.

As Property Manager, Karen is an absolute must for the smooth running of the villa. She handles everything from making sure the gardens and pool are perfect, the cooks and tour guides have their dates when guests arrive, the villa is spotless and everything on hand for the guests coming in, right down to the last detail! She personally greets our guests to make them feel welcome, gives guidance on how things work in the villa and is on hand should anything go wrong or answer any questions. Karen is very knowledgeable and is passionate about this beautiful region of Spain. It helps that she is fluent in Spanish and English – a blessing for our guests! We consider Karen as essential to our rental business as well as for our own sanity! Nothing is too much trouble for Karen.

We have had a number of projects undertaken to the villa and since we cannot be there Karen has become the project manager for us. She has a great eye for
 colour, design and detail. This is so important especially when you are putting your whole trust in someone else to choose paint, stone, fabric etc. It can be daunting but with WhatsApp we have managed to work with Karen and choose tiles at warehouses, bathroom fittings, paint colours, furniture, soft furnishings, plants – you name it! Karen is such a professional and undertakes projects as if it were being done in her own home!

Just as important as her professionalism is Karen’s integrity. She is absolutely trustworthy right down to the last penny. This is crucial when you are owning a property remotely. You need to feel reassured and be assured that you will not be let down or ‘fleeced’. If you are embarking on purchasing a property, want a property manager for your rental business or you want to build and want a project manager we wholeheartedly recommend Karen and Casa y Campo. We are confident that you will not be disappointed!"
