Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in New Golden Mile - IfIeld House

3 Bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 7

This beautiful west facing contemporary style villa is situated in a peaceful area close to the traditional Spanish town and port of Estepona. The villa is on 2 levels and has 3 large double bedrooms, all with brand new en-suite bathrooms. The villa has stunning views to both the sea and mountains and is surrounded by mature cork oak trees. The main living area is open plan, with a pitched ceiling and large picture windows on all sides. There are 4 terraces. One for outdoor dining, one for drinks and relaxing. The other 2 are off the bedrooms affording extra privacy. One of the main features of the house is a large infinity swimming pool in the treetops which cascades over to the valley below.

Holidaying at this villa will offer you a feeling of complete tranquility. For the active, very nearby is is tennis club and horse-riding equestrian centre and a choice of over a dozen golf courses within a 15 minute drive.

The villa is located 3kms from the popular Laguna Village and Puro Beach, a trendy polynesian style complex with shops and restaurants. Puro Beach itself is an all white beach club and pool where you can hire large bed-style sunloungers- ideal to laze on in the sun whilst you sip cocktails brought to you by a friendly waiter.

The area is also excellent for children. There's a lovely cove style beach in Estepona (Cristo Beach) which is shallow and sandy. There are 2 'chiringuitos' -spanish beach clubs here with a small childrens play area and showers.

Estepona itself is very much a traditional Spanish fishing Town. It has a long stretch of sandy beach with a promenade reaching the entire length. The Spanish people like to 'promenade' in their Sunday Best. The town has plenty of shops, and tapas bars and a lovely town square with orange trees and pavements cafes'. Although there is a population of Nothern European 'Ex-Pats' living here, they are in the minority and the town has retained it's charm and Spanish heritage.

Nearby there is Selwo Safari Park which is a must for children. Locally there are many varied restaurants. The closest Hipermarket is a 7 minute drive away stocking everything from fresh fish, wine, BBQ gear, clothes, sunglasses etc. There is a Sunday market at the local Marina and a large market on Wednesdays in the town.

For the explorer and culture vulture 'Ifield House' is ideally situated to get anywhere with ease. Malaga Airport is only a 40 minute drive, Gibraltar airport is also the same distance. The historic town's of Ronda and Malaga (Picasso Museum is a must see) are less than an hour away. Seville is 2 hours drive and Madrid 5 hours. The Atlantic coast with its wide surf beaches is an hour and a half away. Portugal is 4 hours, Gibraltar is only half an hour and for the adventurous amongst you, Africa is only 30 mins on the new fast ferry to Morocco.

The famous Puerto Banus is approximately 20 minutes drive and a must do event during your holiday. In the day time you can sit and people watch as the Ferraris and Lamborghinis drive past. At night it comes alive and you can party all night and onto the next day if you so wish.

On arrival from your chosen airport of Malaga or Gibraltar, our Local manager will greet you at Laguna Village, take you up to the house and show you around. He lives nearby and has lived in the area for many years so is a comforting person to have for advice.

We also provide a concise information book on local restaurants, shops, places to visit and emergency numbers.

LONG TERM WINTER LET AVAILABLE - NOV -APRIL: Looking for somewhere very comfortable to base yourself in luxury while you house hunt here on the Costa Del Sol? Or Just looking to escape for winter sun in a very comfortable home from home? Long Term Winter Let available (Maximum 6 months Nov - April). Special discounted rates apply.

About Grant and Joanne Parker

Grant and Joanne Parker moved to Spain in 2002, after living in Lodnon then embarking on a round the workd trip. We deisigned and built Ifield house ourselves and chose every, tap, tile and toilet! Both our boys were born in Spain, but we decided to move back to UK when they were about school. Grant's job also took him back to London, where he commutes to from Somerset.

Grant and Joanne Parker purchased this villa in 2003

Why Grant and Joanne Parker chose New Golden Mile

What can we say? We love this house and it was a real emotional wrench to leave it. We get back as often as we can. It is a real home and not a typical old fashioned style of villa rental. We left all our furniture there, and it has a contemporary feel with wooden floors and glass bricks. The main asset is the large infinity pool, which cascades over the valley. We chose green tiles to harmonise with the surrounding trees (the area is called Forest Hills)

What makes this villa unique

The fantastic pool, views and the fact it's only 5 minutues to the beach and town, yet it feels in the middle of nowhere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow- what an amazing holiday. We felt like were staying in an MTV cribs celebritry villa. It was so private here- we loved the fact that the pool is so secluded and we could splash about without upsetting the neighbours! Puro Beach was cool too. It was well worth hiring one of the big white sunbeds for the day. I can see some severe holiday blues coming.

A perfect holiday ...

  • 5 out of 5
We've just returned from a wonderful week in June at Grant and Jo's villa in Estepona. The pictures don't do the setting justice - and the pool is an amazing place to spend a morning, evening or a full day! The villa is home from home, only better. Every mod-con you need and great terraces to hide away in the shade. The location is perfect - far enough away from town to be peaceful, but near enough to make a quick trip to supermarket, shops and restaurants.

We were 6 people in total including 2 young children. It was great for kids as Jo provided a cot, toys and plenty of stairgates. Jo and Grant also helped us with a couple of great day trip itineraries. Estepona is a great family resort but also a great base for day trips. We hit Ronda in the hills, Verje de la Frontera (moorish village) near great beaches, Malaga and Marbella. All recommended.

All in all a perfect place to stay and ideal for a week or longer.

Owner's Response: Adrian and Catherine were a lovely family and really enjoyed their stay. They have children the same ages as ours (1 and 3) and were really gratefull to have all the toys for them to play with. They had never visited the Costa del Sol and being into culture, were pleasently surprised at how much there is to offer in the area. They found it a great place to base themselves and explore. They plan to come back later on in the year and we would welcome them back as they looked after the house so well.

Such a great find - Absoultue peace and luxury

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first family villa holiday and everything surpassed our expectations, from the ease of booking to Jo's helpful hints including recommendation of a car rental, great restaurants and some lovely beaches. There are 6 of us, our two children and we took my parents, but we never felt on top of each other as all the bedrooms are all en suites (The master one especially is breathtaking and just huge), all shaded with colonial style ceiling fans. There are several terraces, sofas for relaxing, reading, breakfasting, BBQ's or kid's iPadding (Kid's also happy as well as wi-fi they have all the sky movie channels)! The villa feels brand new, modern and stylishly furninshed. It's also West facing so you can enjoy the sun until it sets behind the mountain at 8.30pm. Everyone raved about the pool and decking area as it feels like your own mini beach club! The green tiled infinity pool is huge and set in the treetops and where we all wanted to spend most of our time as so quiet and peaceful but a short hop to Estepona town or Puerto Banus - So much so that we went out much less than we thought and have already booked it again for 2015. See you next year Ifield House.

A great Villa

  • 5 out of 5
We have been renting Villas for 15 years and this is one of the best.
It is situated in a cul-de-sac and is the only property in the road so no traffic, with the exception of Francisco the pool man and John who popped in to make sure everything was ok. Not necessary everything was. The valley views are beautiful and you can even see the sea. Everything is on your doorstep if you have a car. The Villa has an abundance of outside areas so there is always somewhere for those quiet moments and would suit the even the largest of families. It is a real home from home. The piece de resistance though is the pool area. It is the cleanest pool we’ve ever used and is a joy to swim in and relax by. All in all 10 out of ten!

A peaceful haven

  • 5 out of 5
We booked Jo and Grant's villa last minute and were delighted to find that it was everything (and more) that all the reviews had said. It is simply a stunning villa with every luxury that you would need. The location is superb for easy access to Estepona, Marbella and Puerto Banus.
We will definitely be returning next year, hopefully more than once!
Jo made the booking so simple, her instructions on how to get there were so seamless and everything is made so easy and stress free for you. A fabulous place to stay for peace, quiet and relaxation.

Ifield House -Great villa, peaceful location

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a week staying in Ifield House, Estepona. We were there with our 18 month old and had a great time. The house is perfect for a young family as there are plenty of places for them to be outside but not always in the sun and also the provision of toys, stair gates, high chairs etc makes life much easier.

The pool is beautiful although unless you are visiting in the height of the summer then don't expect to be swimming every day as it's not heated so can be a bit chilly - not that that put me off!! It's not the most suitable pool for young children as it gets deep very quickly but it doesn't claim to be either so don't want that to sound too critical!

The house doesn't have air conditioning but I can't say that we felt it was really needed and when we were there temperatures were around 27 degrees so don't be put off by that as the rooms are still cool and comfortable.

Jo was very helpful in providing information on activities and local restaurants to visit which was great.

All in all a very relaxing holiday was had, this is not your usual Costa Del Sol villa, it's a very comfortable home with a high standard of finish both inside and out.

We would highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Thanks to Claire and family for their review. They stayed the 2nd week of October and yes, the pool temperature does drop in the autumn. We lived in the house for 8 years and used to use the pool every day from mid April to mid October. We also have young children who were born in Spain, and the depth of the pool was OK as they were always in arm bands or rubber rings and couldn't touch the bottom anyway. It is a swimming pool rather than a walk-in paddling type pool. We also had a paddling pool for them by the decking which we filled up with warm water.
I'm glad they enjoyed their stay. Obviously we're biased as it's our house but we have left it as it was when we lived there so it does feel more homely than some rental villas.

I hope they come again one day

Hello,

We have just had 2 fantastic weeks at Ifield House. The weather was amazing, so hot and only May! We had never booked a villa online before and was not quite sure what to expect. Grant met us and gave us excellent directions with good recomendation for the hire car company. The villa I have to say is amazing. The pictures are ok, but when we arrived my wife could not believe this was where we were staying! Everything was new and very clean. The nice thing for us was that you could tell this was a home and not just a rental villa as it felt cozy with nice furniture and pictures. We did go out to a few places but our favourite thing was just lazing about enjoying the barbeque and swimming in the pool every day. It was so quiet with no noise, not like where we live in Berlin. The views were stunning with the big mountain when you wake up and one night we sat on the terrace at sunset and could see Africa! We hope to come back if you will have us next time. ;-)

The area of Forest Hills is 7 km from Estepona on the eastern side. It is an area of natural beauty with private villas set within the abundance of trees and stunning mountains as a back-drop. See the link below for peace and quiet.

A 2 mile drive down our quiet road takes you directly to your closest beach with with infinity pools, 4 restaurants and 30 designer boutiques. Estepona itself is a pretty, traditional Spanish town with an abundance of tapas bars, wonderful fresh fish restaurants and a long wide beach with a 2 mile long sea-front promenade. The town also has a bustling marina with bars and restaurants all overlooking the Yachts. The bars here open till late (4am) but for those wanting ´nightlife´ should venture to the glamour of Puerto Banus (15 min) or Marbella (20 min).

Notes:
We designed and built our villa externally in an Italian style, however the interior is very contemporary and designed for entertaining. 'Ifield House' is situated in a peaceful area close to the traditional Spanish town and port of Estepona on the Costa Del Sol. Please note: The property is on 2 levels, built over the edge of a valley in the treetops with further steps going down to the swimming pool, garden and decking area. Very young children would have to be supervised, although stair gates are provided. All bedrooms are shaded and from sun an have colonial style ceiling fans. The villa has stunning views to both the sea and mountains and is surrounded by mature cork oak and pine trees. The main living area is open plan, with a pitched ceiling and large picture windows on all sides. There is also a sky + satellite system and 37' state of the art LCD TV. The Kitchen is newly fitted in modern Wenge wood and silistone, with a professional stainless Bosh range oven and Bosh appliances
