Getaria was the perfect base to explore the Basque coast. We enjoyed being able to walk to the two beaches, stores and restaurants in town. For more variety, we took the very short drive to the surprisingly bustling town of Zarautz. We spent our days exploring - 30 minutes to San Sebastian (again and again - we loved it), and an hour to both Bayonne (very much worth the trip) and to Bilbao (a must if only for the Guggenheim).
The apartment was perfectly situated. The pictures in the listing did not do justice to the view. The balcony is directly on top of a cliff overlooking the Atlantic. We watched sunsets and surfers, and the crashing waves lulled us to sleep at night.
The apartment is small but comfortable and well provisioned. And our host was so welcoming and helpful throughout our stay.
