We are really excited to announce that we, ‘The Hamiltons’ of Hamilton Homes will be featured in Series 5 of Channel 4’s, Sun, Sea and Selling Houses. We are now on the final countdown as the airing date – 4th April 2022 gets closer and closer!
Sun Sea and Selling Houses
Sun Sea and Selling Houses is a feel-good programme about British Family Estate Agents in Spain and Portugal. It observes their lives in and out of the office. Viewers watch the British Family Estate Agents search and try to find the perfect home in the sun for house hunters. At the same time, they get sneak previews of life behind the scenes.
‘When we were approached to take part in the series, we were really positive about it. This is a chance for us to show you what we love about the Costa del Sol. We really enjoy finding properties for our clients. Ultimately moving to Spain is a lifestyle change – it is not just about the property but about the new life people are looking for. Sun, Sea and Selling Houses gives viewers a glimpse of what living here is like. You get the full picture’. Andrew Bacarese-Hamilton, Director of Hamilton Homes
We, The Hamiltons are honoured to be joining ‘The Garners’ of Spanish Property Choice and ‘The Rodriguez Family of Casas Manuel, who starred in the past 4 series, alongside two other new family agents from Mijas Real Estate and Ideal Homes Portugal. There are so many similarities between us agents, we all love where we live and love our work. However, we are all showcasing different areas. It will give viewers an idea of the diversity between different parts of Spain and Southern Portugal. We are excited to be part of the team of agents and really thrilled to be filming in the Western Costa del Sol. Watch the video below to see what our area is like!

‘It was really great fun filming – it made me fall in love again with Spain and with our area. I loved the fact that we were being filmed as a family. We have three daughters and they are a very central part of our lives. Our youngest daughter has special needs and it was nice that she was included in the filming – popping in, here and there, really going with the flow’. Shani Bacarese Hamilton, Hamilton Homes

So what was it like behind the scenes?
So some things you may not know about the programme are:
- All our clients are genuine buyers
- Nothing is scripted
- Covid Restrictions and 2 metre rule added its challenges
‘We are who we are’ – Nothing is scripted! We had a lot of fun adhering to Covid Restrictions – if we look awkward when we are walking it is because we had to keep 2 metres between us and our clients! In some episodes, you will see our faces poking over a door as we show clients around, just because due to Covid restrictions we couldn’t always fit in a bathroom or kitchen!!!
We also loved our time with clients and crew! We started filming when things were just opening after lockdown – it was really great to do physical viewings again and meet people from all walks of life.
‘Filming takes about two and a half to three days per client, and we film 3 property viewings in that time. At first, I thought it sounded like a lot of time but I really loved that Shani and I could use it to really understand our clients, to get to know them, and also answer any technical questions they may have. We made some great friendships along the way’. Andrew Bacarese-Hamilton
‘It was exciting! I actually really enjoyed working alongside my husband – I loved working as a team. It was fabulous to spend quality time with our clients, finding out what they really wanted, why they really wanted to move to Spain’ Shani Bacarese-Hamilton
