Our house is a majestic colonial building with an impressive patio with open arches and a refreshing waterfall. A great lounge to rest, read and have a cold glass of fine wine from local wineries sitting in one of its large armchairs. We have 4 rooms on the 3rd floor with high ceilings of the colonial style and 2 apartments on the roof to reach the maximum enjoyment of summer terrace.
Discover our beautiful patio, the common areas, the cafeteria, and the roof terrace and its views from the viewpoint in the video below:
The origins of House No. 6 go back to the community of “the wild geese”, Irish Catholic immigrants who fled from poverty and war to find a new life in Spain. Many of these immigrants included merchants who were involved in the Sherry wine business, including the original owners of the house, the O’neale family. For this reason we offer a wine tasting (On request). Henry O’neale would be the first of his family to set up shop in the city in the early 1700s and his first Spanish son Patrick O’neale built this house around 1750.
Patrick O’neale, the owner, was an Irish-Spanish gentleman who achieved great recognition and power in the Port of Santa Maria when he was named nobleman by King Carlos III. The land on which the building of Casa Nº6 is raised was bought when it was still part of the original gardens of the “Palace of the Dukes of Medinaceli”, and it built a building that would work for its commerce, wine. This explains the rooftop merchant observatory, which allowed to see in advance the arrival of the ships to the port, or the wide arches and other architectural aspects. After its commercial use and superior housing, it became a neighbor’s house with several families living in each plant. The patio would serve as a communal space, as it does today. Winner of the prize for the monumental patio of the year from the local government.
In 1998 the house was bought by a Spanish-English couple, Penny and Alan. At that time it was abandoned and decided to reform the entire house and turn it into a guest house keeping all the colonial charm of the house. Today after another intense renovation carried out in 2016, the house looks better than ever, after the continuous efforts of this couple, who have created a unique boutique pension in the city, able to immerse you in the history and relive the beauty of the colonial era together to the comforts of the 21st century.

We are located right in the center of El Puerto de Santa María, very close to the Prioral Church, ideal to get to the House or walk to all the places of tourist interest in the city.
The nearest airport is Jeréz de la Frontera, but it also has buses or trains from many locations, for example, Madrid or Seville.
Many of the travelers who come on holiday to the city opt for the option of arriving in their own car. By establishing three reference capitals, El Puerto de Santa María is 637 kilometers from Madrid, 110 kilometers from Seville and 237 kilometers from Malaga. The city has several accesses, but, for its simplicity, we recommend the entrance to the city by Valdelagrana.
