Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Fuengirola - Villa Blanca

The owner, David Greene, whose profile appears in this ad further down, lives in Fuengirola too so he is just a few minutes away from the Villa. He also makes a point of welcoming his guests personally on arrival, showing them around and handing over keys etc.

Fuengriola, Costa del Sol: The Costa del Sol is certainly the best coast in Spain in terms of infrastructure, general standards, facilities and weather. The most sought after section runs between Malaga city and Estepona. The town of Fuengirola is 20kms from Malaga airport in the direction of Estepona and is exactly halfway between Malaga and Marbella. It is therefore perfectly located and Fuengirola is probably the best coastal town in terms of size, accessibility, beaches, facilities and amenities, choice, standards and costs. Villa Blanca sits right at the western edge of the town and benefits from a quiet cul de sac location just 250 metres in a straight line from the best beach and has fabulous panoramic sea views. It is also within walking distance of a large shopping mall and supermarket as well as dozens of restaurants and bars without being within earshot of any of them....ideal.

Fuengirola also has its own aquapark, cinema complex, zoo, water sports, equestrian sports, medical centres as well as several golf courses within a few kilometres.

I am a British Chartered Accountant and I came to live and work in Spain in 1998 after a long-ish career in corporate finance. On arriving in Spain, as a complete change of lifestyle, I opened a very successful French restaurant which I later sold very well. I then owned and ran a small, successful real estate office but closed it when the property market went quiet here in 2006. I earlier lived for 16 years in Belgium and speak French and an improving Spanish too. I am a friendly and approachable guy and I want to make sure that my guests have a great time and really enjoy the Villa. Thankfully, I seem to succeed in that. I expect high standards when I go on holiday and I always assume that my guests expect the same from me.

I live in Fuengirola too so I am just a few minutes away from the Villa should the guests need me for any reason. I also make a point of welcoming my guests personally on arrival, showing them around and handing over keys etc.

David Greene purchased this villa in 2002

I bought Villa Blanca because of its fabulously original open-plan split-level interior layout, very high ceilings, loads of light, fabulous terraces and garden as well as the amazing panoramic sea views. Another important factor was the location on the edge of town but so close to the beach and so many facilities including restaurants, bars, the Myramar shopping mall etc...perfect. I completely renovated it in 2004 and, in 2006, I extended it significantly and installed a super private pool of 32 m2. Most of my guests say the photos do not do the Villa justice especially the panoramic sea views. It is not necessary to hire a car as all you need is accessible within walking distance. However, the Villa is also ideally located as a central point to visit so many places of interest, sports and other facilities, shops, and other towns.

I think that the unique benefits of Villa Blanca can be summarised as follows. If anyone contemplating a self-catering Villa holiday makes up a list of all of the criteria they are seeking (eg spacious, luxurious, private exclusive use of the facilities, fully-equipped, walking distance to beach, shops, bars restaurants, etc, super sea views, private pool, loads of local amenities, excellent transport links, close to airport, fair-pricing etc etc) then Villa Blanca is one of very very few that can tick all of the boxes.

A Wonderful Holiday Villa!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 23-Oct-2012
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2012
This was my second stay at Villa Blanca! Having previously been there with my family, I went instead with three friends to celebrate my birthday. What a fantastic place to be, and a wonderful time of year to escape the English grey drizzle! The villa was perfect, with fantastic views. It was clean, welcoming and full of light. A real Godsend. We loved being within walking distance of the beach and the shops. I am currently pestering my husband into booking this fab villa again next year! You only live once....treat yourself...you wont be disappointed!
Owner's Response: It is very rewarding to know that the considerable efforts put in by myself and my small team (cleaners, gardener and handyman) are recognised and such appreciation for us expressed. Many thanks to these guests for taking the trouble to write a review. I am blessed with having bought a super-located but older Villa in 2002 which I immediately completely renovated and updated. In 2006, I extended it significantly and levelled the garden with retaining walls and put in a super pool. The location, high standards and style of the property seem to attract high levels of demand and the feedback is always so positive. After 6 seasons of renting out Villa Blanca, and despite the economic climate, demand has never been higher. Do I have the best holiday Villa in and around Fuengirola...yes I believe I do...but perhaps I am a little biased hehe.

a gem of a villa in a gem of a place!

  • Review Submitted: 27-Jul-2011
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2011
I stayed at villa blanca with my family earlier this month and can honestly say I had the best break ever! having never stayed at a private villa before I had ceratin reservations about what it would turn out like, but I needn't have worried! The villa itself is totally stunning, it is very spacious and the pictures I had seen beforehand really do not do it justice! Outside, there are numerous terraces to chose where to drink your gin and tonic, well-kept gardens, a fantastic pool and stunning views.
we did not have a car, but that was not important as it is just a stroll to the beach and local shops, bars etc. I am booking in again for next year, and probably will get in quick to secure the year after too. The owner david is a super friendly english guy who went out of his way to make sure that we were happy and knew to call him if we had any problems (which we didn't). An amazing villa in a fab place...I miss it already!!

Owner's Response: It is great to get feedback like this so thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. I, along with my small cleaning and maintenance team, do our best to ensure that everything is tip top for all my guests. I am fortunate to have a super villa in a fantastic location but also try to ensure that my rental rates are competitive so my occupancy levels are excellent especially between May and October. This period is often sold out by the end of the previous year so booking early is best....oops am sounding like a salesman now. It is also a great place for a winter break and I think my rates for that period are unbeatable for the standard of accommodation. Thank you once again for your comments.

Fabulous !

  • Review Submitted: 08-Sep-2010

We stayed at the Villa Blanca this August 2010 and have to say we had a fabulous time . We took our grandaughters aged 15,14 and 9 . The pool was superb as was the whole set up . We were met by the owner who showed us around and told us where the local shops were and how to get out and about . The villa is of a very high standard and well worth that little bit extra as it is in such a good position and the views were exactly as the photos on the website , even better actually being there ! I would highly recommend this villa for a family holiday or 3 couples .The beach is a 5 min walk away and can be seen from the main terrace .

Owner's Response: I am very pleased that these guests had a great time and thank them for their kind comments. It makes the hard work involved in keeping up the standards in all respects and at all times so worthwhile. Thank you.

A Fabulous Place to Stay

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 23-Sep-2008
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2008
This fabulous villa is home from home in the sun. Myself my husband and my teenage daughter stayed there for a week in August and were joined on our second week by my sister-in-law and two nieces (in their 20's). The villa was perfect for everyone, plenty of space so we were definitely not on top of each other.

The villa is convenient for everything, shopping, bars, beach, restaurants and even a cinema and you will find the owner a really helpful and friendly guy.

A fantastic place to stay and I would recommend it to everyone. Will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: I am so pleased that John and his family enjoyed their stay and appreciate them taking the trouble to write a review. I do my best to ensure the Villa is in tip-top shape for all my guests and help and advise whenever possible on everything I can. The main thing though is that I am blessed with a fabulous property in a superb location even if I say so myself. I only started renting in 2007 and the response has been much better than I expected...mainly, I think, due to the property itself, the location and setting fair rental rates.

Ticks all the boxes

  • Review Submitted: 12-Sep-2008
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2008
We had a fantastic week at the Villa end of August 2008. The villa is ideally situated for shops, beach and restaurants. Bikini beach is a short 5minute walk from the villa and has its own beach restaurant and bar.
The modern Miramar shopping centre is close by which offers everything one might need or have forgotten for the holiday.
The villa is really spacious and cleverly laid out with numerous patios overlooking the sea. The pool is perfect and very private and we enjoyed the villa so much that we often spent the day around the pool relaxing.
I would recommend the villa to everyone.

Notes:
There are some 18 steps leading from the garden entrance to the villa which, internally, is split level. Therefore, we do not believe the villa to be ideal for persons who are wheelchair bound or who have very restricted mobility. In all other respects, the Villa is ideal for a family holiday for all ages and is a complete home from home with lots of space all finished to very high standards and very close to all facilities.
