Driving onto the Punta there is a breathtaking view over Herradura Bay. There is a mix of individual villas, small developments and apartments all enjoying wonderful views due to being high above sea level. Las Gaviotas is just below a lighthouse surrounded by tropical gardens.

An ideal place to holiday, the villa fulfilling all needs if you want to stay home but only a short walk or drive down to the beach to enjoy water sports and a large variety of bars and restaurants. For a day out you can drive up into the mountains or visit some historic cities and monuments. You will never be bored.

Family break

  • 5 out of 5
We had an amazing week at Las gaviotas. A great location close to La Herradura & the marina beaches. The area is still very Spanish, the locals are very friendly and even happy for the children to try out their basic spanish!
The views are absolutely breathtaking from the villa. The villa is immaculately clean & well equipped for a family holiday, the terrace is well kept by the gardener. the pool was a huge hit with the children & there is nothing like a poolside bar-b-que in the sun.
All together a lovely week, we have booked our slot for next year!

The views are spectacular, the villa is in a perfect spot for relaxing and the restaurants in the area are excellent so, all round, a great holiday location. Casa Nicky is beautifully decorated, the beds are comfortable and the car hire company Nicky uses is very efficient. Thank you for a perfect break!

Wonderful villa with absolutely stunning views

  • 5 out of 5
Really enjoyed our stay at Casa Nicky. The views over the med are breathtaking and we spent hours with a glass of wine gazing off over the bay. The villa itself is very light and airy, excellently equiped and spotless. The pool is a real gem, perfect for cooling off in and big enough for a few lengths. La Herradura is really lovely, a nice balance between secluded,tranquil hide away and lively costal resort. A short stroll takes you straight to the beach, cafes and restaurants. Granada is definately worth a trip and the Sierra Nevadas are amazing.

Nicky was brilliant start to finish, sent us great directions, gave really handy advice and even referred us to the perfect hire car company. I would highly recommend staying here and would love to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking time to write a review and of course I'm delighted it's such a good one! I am also very pleased you enjoyed your holiday so much and experienced the location in the way I do. Nothing like the glass of wine on the terrace watching the activity on the water!!

Amazing tranquil paradise on the Costa Tropical

  • 4 out of 5
We rented this privately for a week and found the location, setting, views and neighbours to be amazing. Excellently located close to La Herradora, the Marina and Almenacar offering everything you'd ever need.
The villa has stunning views over the bay, is beautifully clean and well equipped with an amazing view of the full moon through the bedroom window! Highly recommend and look forward to going back soon.

A serene and tranquil idyll - a gem of a discovery

  • 5 out of 5
The photographs here are impressive, and they don't exaggerate; to actually be there is breathtaking.

This beautiful and lovingly cared for villa provided my wife and me with a week's break that we shall treasure.

The local town of La Herradura, about one mile distant, has many restaurants and small shops, with greater shopping and dining options just round the bay at Almunecar.

During our short stay we enjoyed drives along the coast to nearby Nerja and the beautiful Frigiliana, then to the stunning mountains of the Sierra Nevada. There are lots of attraction within a relatively short distance.

But if you don't want to travel, then the villa alone is sublime. A typical daybreak is breakfast by the pool, with the sun rising over Almunecar across the bay, and (thanks to the good 3G coverage) BBC Today program via a smart-phone. So while there is selective seclusion, one may remain in touch via phone, Iplayer and email.

There are plenty of local walks - down to the town, or up to the light-house or round and down to the Marina Del Este, and no matter which way you look, the scenery is magnificent.

I would suggest taking binoculars and/or telephoto-camera, because from the terrace one can spend hours simply watching the fishing activity in the bay, particularly in the dark early-hours when the local fishermen use lights from their boats to entice the fish.

I would unhesitatingly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am delighted you enjoyed your holiday. You seem to have captured the essence of the area in the way I do. There are lots of places to visit and explore but local facilities are great and most importantly you can relax at the villa. Sit in the sun, read your book, then swim to cool off and as you say, there is always activity on the water below to watch. Perfect!

Amazing little place... I want to go back.

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Nicky at Las Gaviotas is perfect if you are after a quiet place to stay, but within easy access to surrounding beaches and towns.
The views are amazing and you never tire of looking out across the med.
The villa itself has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. You can tell it is much loved by Nicky. We had a perfect stay there. Thanks so much Nicky!

La Herradura and Almuneccar are popular holiday resorts. The Spanish from Madrid and Granada areas come for their holidays and it is not dominated by foreign tourists. It remains traditionally Spanish with little English spoken but the restaurant menus do have English, French and German sections. You are definitely holidaying in Spain. The house is situated on Punta de la Mona which is a very rugged, residential peninsular with spectacular views on the eastern end of the horseshoe bay of La Herradura. The Marina del Este on the Punta has waterfront restaurants, a Diving Centre and other water sports on offer. There is also a secluded beach with a beach bar/ restaurant

The local town is La Herradura which is a small village situated in a beautiful bay. It has a daily food market, small supermarkets and many restaurants and bars.

The next town along the bay, to the east can be seen across the water from the terrace is Almuñecar. This is larger with a weekly market on a Friday, a daily food market, larger food stores and many shops. Offering similar activities as La Herradura and the Marina del Este there are various water sports and a water park. Almuñecar has a castle, aquarium and other cultural attractions which allows it to appeal to a mixture of different interests.

A spectacular, winding coastal drive to the west takes you to Nerja which is a popular destination in the summer. It has huge caves which have regular musical performances but are also open daily for visitors to walk through. The picturesque village of Frigiliana is just inland from Nerja and has whitewashed houses with terracotta tiled roofs and red geraniums in window boxes along narrow,winding, cobbled streets. A delightful place to go for lunch and browse the artisan shops. Between the house and Nerja there are nature walks which offer very different views depending on the time of year.

Both Malaga and Granada are within a one hour drive from the villa and are both beautiful cities. Malaga has many museums, art galleries (including Picasso's home) and historical sites such as an atrium from the Romans. Granada is also a great day out with similar attractions to Malaga but also has La Alhambra which is beautiful and offers tours in the day and evening with different options. It is advisable to book ahead as it is a popular destination.

There are also many wonderful towns in the mountains which offer visitors to see something a little different and the drive alone is an experience up thin, windy roads. There are also olive groves on the plains which appear at the top of mountains after the scenic drive up.

There are a huge variety of activities that can be had both close to the house as well as day trips.
