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

3 Aircondtiioned bedrooms,1 kingsize,1 double,1 twin and 2 full bathrooms

The villa is accessed through electric gates which can only be opened by a secure code or remote control which makes the villa very private and secure. The gates close immediately after you go through them. When you drive through the gates you drive down a driveway to the villa and the parking for the villa is right next door to the gate so to take your shopping etc inside is very easy. This villa is very spacious and airy with marble floors throughout. There is an entrance porch and hallway which leads to the lounge and bedrooms. The lounge has two sets of patio doors leading onto garden and BBQ area. Two of the bedrooms also have patio doors leading onto a terrace. The lounge, dining room and kitchen are large and open plan with a breakfast bar. Wireless internet has been installed to which ipads, tablets, mobile phones, laptops etc can all be connected. There is UK television with BBC, ITV, channel 4 and 5 and lots of other channels. There is a catch up facility which means all programmes on any channel in the previous 14 days can be watched at any time. The television is a new flat screen model. The villa has full air conditioning/heating throughout all bedrooms and lounge and the lounge has an additional open fire. Both the bathrooms have electric heaters. There is also a utility room adjoining the kitchen which houses the washing machine. The private pool is kidney shaped and as the garden faces south there is all day sunshine. In the garden there is a pool table and a table tennis table. A car is highly recommended and the villa is only a 4 minute drive to El Coto which has 4 restaurants and bars, supermarket, chemist and pizza take away.

About Linda Murphy

We are Patrick and Linda Murphy and we are 66 years old and are now retired. We used to own a hotel in Cornwall, which we sold in 2000 and we moved to Spain shortly afterwards. When we were first in Spain we lived in Villa Higueras and now we live just five minutes away. This means we are always close by if required for any problem. We look after the villa personally to ensure that all guests are very comfortable.

.

Linda Murphy purchased this villa in 2001

Why Linda Murphy chose Fuengirola

After we sold our hotel, we came to Fuengirola on holiday and liked the area so much we decided to buy a home here. We like it because there is so much nearby with lots of shops, restaurants, sandy beaches. Fuengirola is also very central to visit lots of interesting places on the Costa del Sol

What makes this villa unique

When you stay at Villa Higueras we make sure that the villa is a place that you always feel at home in. We always keep an eye on things so that everything is just what our guests want, which is why we have installed the wireless internet as we felt it was an important thing to have for people on holiday to keep in touch with both family and business etc. The villa is very conveniently located as it is quiet and private but also a short drive to shops, beaches and restaurants. As we live so close we look after everything personally and should our guests have any problems we can be there within 5 mins to help in any way we can. The villa is always kept up to date with appliances and we have just put in a new fridge, new washing machine and a flat screen television

Perfect family holiday .

  • 5 out of 5
I stayed at this villa for 2 weeks with my husband and 3 kids (12,7,3) this villa is perfect for families and couples.
The day we arrived we had a problem with our car hire and we had to get a taxi to the villa (50 euro from airport) I emailed Linda straight away and she came to the villa within 20 mins to help us out and then Patrick took my husband to the airport to pick the car up , I really don't know what we would have done without them .
My first impressions of the villa when we arrived was that it feels a lot bigger inside than the pics look , we felt at home straight away it really is lovely . In the evening you also feel really safe as all the windows and patio doors have guards over them that lock as well as the locks inside , the area itself feels really safe anyway it is a really fabulous location as it is very private with no one looking onto you . We had a car which I think you really need , fuengirola is about 10 mins in the car and mijas pueblo village is about 10 mins away too which I recommend you go for dinner it was stunning ! There is take away places about 5 mins away if you don't want to cook too. We did a large shopping and made a few bbqs, we all loved it . The kids have a fabulous time in the pool it was a really great size , it feels a lot bigger when you are actually in it.
Overall this holiday for us was amazing .

I highly recommend this villa .

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane and Mark for the review. After such an bad start to the holiday with the problem with the car hire, it was lovely the holiday turned out so well for you and you enjoyed everything. It was no problem to help sort out the car for you, we are always on call for anything at all. It was such a relief when Pat and Mark went to the airport to get the car! Quite a lot of guests comment on how the villa is a lot bigger than they thought from the photos, maybe I should take some more photos to try and show the villa better. We are so pleased that the villa felt like home and hope to see you all again. Linda

FANTASTIC

  • 5 out of 5
We have just had our family holiday at this villa in august 2013 . The villa and its location is fantastic and to top the holiday the owners linda & pat are the most perfect hosts and lovely people they are willing to help in any way. The photos don't do this justice . We have had a wonderful holiday and will talk about it for many years and we are planning to return to this villa soon . If your looking for a nice villa that's safe for the whole family then look no further , the villa has everything that you need , lovley pool and gardens and the villa has everything inside . It is in a very good location with mijas and fuenigirola only a short distance away . We will definatly be coming back . We know this part of spain very well and we were very lucky to find this villa and we had a perfect holiday
Thankyou Linda & Pat and hope to see you soon

lovely villa, fabulous owners

  • 5 out of 5
the villa was clean and tidy and just as we had expected from the pictures and description. everything that you would ever need during your stay is there and if it isnt the owners were more than happy to help obtain it. also this property is very secure and child friendly as well as private. for non drivers as we are, it was easy to get to public transport to go to the resort centre which wasnt far away. linda and pat the owners went out of their way to make our stay special. we would deffinately return here

Stunning, spacious Villa with fantastic hosts

  • 5 out of 5
We found Villa Higueras on the web but it stood out from the others as we were looking for something in a nice quiet, secluded and safe location with a pool and space for the kids to play as we needed a place to relax from the stresses of work. Communications with the owners, Linda and Pat, was fantastic answering all of our questions. We arrived at the Villa in the early evening and the sun was still shining so the kids just stripped off and jumped in the pool, where they pretty much spent the rest of their holiday!
The villa is very spacious, bedrooms are all great and the kitchen is fitted with all necessary equipment (especially a dishwasher!).
We had a small accident during our stay when my husband twisted his ankle and it looked quite bad. Pat and Linda were there immediately and did absolutely everything helping at hospital, etc, etc. Absolutely lovely hosts who are genuinely interested in making sure their guests are as comfortable as possible at all times who were contactable and at hand throughout our stay living only a few miles away. This is a real bonus, especially with young kids with floaties and toys turning up at random times throughout the stay! (Thanks Pat!)
Overall we can't fault this villa, spacious, clean, has all you need (Internet as well which is brilliant) swimming pool, pool table, games for kids and perfect hosts.
You will need a car to stay here as you will need to drive for supermarkets, beach, etc but you have a private, gated and secure parking so no worries about security. We had a fantastic holiday and thoroughly recommend Villa Higueras.

Owner's Response: Thank you Roy and Kath for such really kind words. It was our pleasure to help Roy when he twisted his ankle, we were all so relieved it was not broken so that the holiday could continue to be enjoyed. As you know we have the philosphy that we always treat our guests in the same way we would like to be treated when away from home. We do try to keep the villa as up to date with facilities as we can and whenever it is vacant Pat is always doing something at the villa and garden to keep it nice for everyone and we are so pleased you really enjoyed your stay at our villa. We will now look forward to seeing you again next May and fingers crossed no more visits to the hospital!!!!

Top Class Villa

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I came to this villa for a week at the beginning of May 2013. As in all the previous views the villa was immaculate and you get exactly what it says on the tin! And so private and secure. Linda and Pat were super helpful and you can see that they take care and pride in the villa. A car is definitely required if you want to go a bit further afield but not essential if you want to stay local. There is a lovely restaurant called La Luna which is only 10 mins walk from the villa which is run by another British couple - Georgina and Russell where you couldn't be made more welcome. The small town of ElCoto isonly about another 5/10 minutes walk wher ther is a small supermarket and a few more restaurants and bars with the front at Fuengirola perhaps another 15/20 minutes walk - very do-able but I would recomend a taxi back! Linda/Pat - thanks very much - we can't recommend the villa highly enough.

Car: recommended

Fuengirola is just 20km from Malaga airport and has fabulous beaches which stretch for approx 5 km from Torreblanca to the Moorish Castle at the other end. Our villa is very centrally located as within a few minutes drive you can reach Fuengirola with its beaches, restaurants, shops and bars. Mijas Pueblo is also just a few minutes drive, this a very Spanish style village with the most panoramic views, there is also a vast selection of restaurants, bars and many souvenier shops. If you are keen on golf, there are many golf courses nearby, the nearest one being Mijas Golf. The Miramar shopping mall with its cinemas, restaurants and shops is approximately 10 minutes drive and is perfect for a day out. Fuengirola is also well known for its zoo as it is very popular and is located right in the centre of the town, although when in the zoo you would not know this. It is a lovely zoo for all ages. Tivoli world, Hipodrome Horse racing, Aquapark and Lew Hoads tennis club are all nearby.

Golf: On the Costa del Sol there are numerous golf courses, many of which are within 10 minute drive from our villa. Mijas Golf and La Cala Golf are very close.
