BEAUTIFUL LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL VILLA

  • 5 out of 5
We've just come back from 10 days at Villa Mariposa, and had a fantastic time.
The villa is set in a peaceful location, with beautiful views of the sea. We were lucky enough to pick some lemons and limes off of many of the fruit trees within the garden to help flavour our Sangria! The pool was clean and well maintained by a lovely Spanish man who also tended to the garden. The villa was very clean and tidy, with everything we needed for the perfect holiday.
The process of booking the villa was very simple, the owner was quick to respond to any of our questions and gave us some helpful advice about booking transfers.
The beach isn't too far away, but not walking distance (in my opinion), the roads are quite hilly and windy and not safe to walk on with children, so we used taxis. You can get a bus at the top of the urbanisation to the marina which is quite a pleasant bus ride and very easy to do.
Locally there are not many bars/restaurants, which was fine for us as we Bbq'd at the villa, but if you want to eat out every night then this is a bus ride/taxi ride away!
I would definitely book this villa again and would definitely recommend!

VILLA MARIPOSA

  • 5 out of 5
Stayed at the Villa late July 2013, Our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The views are amazing and the area is very quite. You are not overlooked by any neighbours so makes this Villa perfect if you like your privacy. Will definitely be going back at some point. I would not hesitate to recommend this Villa to anybody.

GREAT LITTLE PLACE

  • 4 out of 5
All in all a great holiday. I travelled with a group of 8 22-year-olds looking for a quiet villa with plenty of places to travel, and we found it here. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a friendly couple who made sure everything was in order before we unpacked.

The villa, although admittedly smaller than we expected judging by the pictures, contained everything we were hoping for. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen appliances worked without a problem and there was a lot of security (a safe is available to use and the main entrance is guarded by fencing secured with a padlock) - this aspect was stressed to us as we were made very aware of the crime that exists in the area by our greeters. A cleaner also visited every morning to keep the outside of the property in order (gardening maintenance etc), but he did not disturb us at all.

The property is situated at the top of a large slope of woodland, containing many trees and bushes; upon talking to the locals, we discovered this area had become known as 'Death Mountain', although I suspect that name is used in a tongue-in-cheek fashion. Beyond the slope, the view from the villa is wonderful; panoramic views of the sea make for an ideal horizon to gaze upon as the sun is setting.

If you want to get away from the areas which are heavily populated by English people, I suggest taking a short taxi to Mijas, a beautiful little town which immerses you in the Spanish culture with fine buildings, food and dancing. Make sure to ask about 'El Barellious', an important historical figure in the town.

This a very satisfactory holiday. I'd recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and well-equipped villa in Spain. I'd also recommend this place to families with children of all ages.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY,FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second time staying at Mariposa Villa and yet again we had a lovely holiday.The villa was spacious and comfortable, clean had everything in it we could possibly need, we felt there just like at home. We loved the pool and the beach was just 5 mins by car. What is more Benalmadena down town is beautiful. Brilliant for a nice walk. You can eat cheap and delicious Spanish dinner. Safe and quiet area, drive easy to park 2 cars. Brain and Petra are really friendly and very helpful hosts. We definitely plan to come back there again!! High to recommend!!!

BEST HOLIDAY HOME ON COSTA DEL SOL!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family has enjoyed 3 lovely holidays at Villa Mariposa and will definitely return here for our next visit in Spain! The villa is located at a peaceful urbanizacion La Capellania, close to shops and motorway. The area is safe as there are surveillance cameras at the gates of the urbanizacion so everyone entering and exiting the area will be recorded. The villa itself is private and safe and offers breathtaking views overlooking the Mediterranean. During the years we have rented other villas on Costa del Sol but have to say that Villa Mariposa has been one of the best ones! We feel comfortable staying at the villa and have never had any problems during our stay. The owners are reliable and all the arrangements with them have gone extremely smoothly and without any problems. If you are looking for a relaxing and carefree holiday, I am happy to recommend this villa for a perfect holiday home. We are already looking forward for our next visit to Villa Mariposa!

EASTER HOLIDAY

  • 1 out of 5
The villa maraposa was a rather tired looking villa much as expected from the photographs. We arrived very late at night due to our flight being canceled. It took some time for us to open the door as the handle was missing. We were a party of six adults and four children. We moved beds for the children so they didn't fall out of bed and found dead spiders and dust. Bed linen was old and pillows yellow. Most days it was windy and the windows rattled The lay out of the villa was good and the views spectacular. You could walk to the pub and shops coming back was all up hill all the way.

The pool was nice but too cold in April the children had wet suits but snagged these getting out of the pool due to the rough stone flags laid round the pool.

The gardener was extremely intrusive using a garden vac for hours and actually watered the grass arround us and laughed when we pointed out that we were getting wet it was so bad we rang the care takers and asked them to ensure he did not come back whilst we were there.

The weather was reasonble I understand for that time of year not a lot of sun but we were expecting this as it was early in the season. We did have sunny days towards the end of the ten days

We had problems with the hot water it was Luke warm at best there was not enough sun for the system to heat the water so we were relient on the back up system this would not heat enough water for two people and we were ten. We called the care takers out several times and e mailed the owners we were eventually told by the care takers that the system was broken. If I had wanted to shower in cold water and boil water to bath the children and wash up I could have gone camping. On the Easter Sunday we found the sun was stronger we had hot water around two pm that still meant boiling water for washing and washing up breakfast and lunch pots. We all had to take very quick showers in the afternoon and I do mean quick as the system did not provide for the sixe of the party.

Extremely disappointing and I would not recommend the villa to anyone

Owner's Response: At the beginning of Robinson's stay at my villa I received an e-mail telling me there was a shortage of hot water. I then tried to make a contact with them but they never answered their phone. On their return home they e-mailed me complaining water was not hot enough. At the villa if the sun is not shining the solar system is not adequate but for this there is a back up electric system to use clearly marked out at the villa, but for some reason it seems they did not use this facility. My management explained to them what to do and also set thermostat on water heater in the separate apartment to hot not maximum because it's possible for elements to cut out due to a lot of calcium in the water which is prevalent in Spain, but nevertheless the element is easy to reset.
Regarding furnishing of the villa most has been replaced in the last three years. For example, the lounge leather suite is only two years old including all leather chairs around dining table and new side board and mirrors. All bed mattresses have been recently replaced. All pillows have protective pillow cases besides the main covers which match the bed linen. All sunbeds and cushions for outside use were replaced in February 2012. The villa and surrounding balustrade walls were newly painted beginning of this year and a new terrace and balustrade wall constructed outside the attached apartment in 2011.
The gardener comes three times a week to clean pool and water the gardens and clear away leaves particularly in spring time (April) as they will block up the swimming pool. He tries not to inconvenience guests but he has to carry out his job to keep up the standard of the villa surroundings.
My management did their best to resolve the problem of hot water but it seems there was a communication breakdown and it is sad for me to receive such a negative review which I find very unfair under the circumstances and as it is my personal villa I am there often and improving the villa all the time.

Villa Mariposa is located in a very favourable position, with easy access to motorway, between Mijas mountain village and Benalmadena Pueblo (village) and Benalmadena world famous marina, cable car and waterparks for children. If you wish to experience panoramic views and surrounds from the mountains, I recommend the cable car. For your enjoyment there is beautiful stretches of sandy beaches from Benalmadena to Fuengirola; many first class golf courses nearby and restaurants to suit everyones taste and budget in beautiful surroundings. If you wish not to drive, Carvajal train station is close to our urbanisation, running regular service to Malaga airport and the city. Also a circular bus is running regularly; Many famous shops and malls close by i.e. El Corte De Engles, La Canada; Marbella and Puerto Banus 20 min drive; 1 hour drive by motorway direct to duty free Gibraltar and further to famous Cadiz where the great battle of Trafalgar took place in 1805.

Other Activities: Flamenco dancing; wine and culinary tasting; sightseeing; castles; art
