Photos do not do this villa justice!

  • 5 out of 5
The "bean's" review for the 7th of August 2010 is to the letter to what we would have written. Just to add our two pence worth....the views are simply fantastic and the peace and quiet is brilliant. We have three children from 12 to 2 and they have all enjoyed staying here. The weather a tad hot at midday 42c but this is why they have a siesta and to be honest the cool mountain breeze we didnt notice it much. The only vistors we had walk by was the goat herdsman. Once again I cannot stress enough about the views and the villa being simply beyond words.

Pro's. This place has everything for the perfect quiet holiday. You could make some noise and no one would notice if you did. We have never said that we would visit the same place twice; but Louise (my wife) has said that we could come again. Alan and iLin are the perfect hosts quick to answer any questions before and during the holiday.

Con's. Asked the whole family and they came up blank they all liked this villa. My only advice is the cooker...This is how picky i am having to be to think of a fault. The cooker takes ages to warm up to temp.

Many thanks and recommend you book in advance to avoid disappointment as we did nearly a year ahead to ensure we got this villa. We all had a lovely family holiday.

Simon, Louise, Connor, Brody and Lucas.

Fantastic get away from it all villa

  • 5 out of 5
Our second visit to Casa Sydney - and we don't usually visit the same place twice (so that tells you how good our first visit was!).

The villa was every bit as good the second time around - a testament to the care that is put in to maintaining the high standards set by the owners Alan and Ilin.

This villa is about 5km drive up a mountain road (which has been considerably improved since our last visit) - and so is a perfect haven of peace and tranquility. The nearest neighbours are about 300 metres away and the nearest village is in the valley below.

The villa has everything you could possibly need including a fantastic spanish barbeque. The pool is immaculate and is looked after twice a week by Alan to make sure that it stays tip-top.

Also improved this year has been the addition of broadband internet access, which certainly helps if, like us, you need to stay in touch with home while you are on holiday.

The facilities inside the villa are beautifully looked after - spotlessly clean throughout and very comfortable - definitely home away from home.

This villa suited our family (parents who are senior citizens, and us and our teenage kids) - there are two double rooms, one twin bedded room and two bathrooms (one en-suite).

The nearest beach is about a ten minute drive away, and the supermarket is about the same - so when visiting this villa a car is a MUST.

If you want to get away from it all then this is definitely the place to go! (and if you want to be in the middle of the action down at the coast, then it probably isn't for you).

We love this villa, and the owners definitely can't do enough for you - the perfect hosts!

What a welcome to a fantastic villa

  • 5 out of 5
What can be said about Casa Sydney that other guests haven't said before, We found the welcome given by Alan & Ilyn to be the best by any other villa owners, we arrived at 9:00pm so did not see the area until we woke up the next morning and yes it's all and more what others say, Fantastic views, Great villa and away from everyone else but you can go down to the beach only 6kms away or go to the centre of Malaga only 20kms away.

The property was imaculate and had everything you would require,

Alan recomended a great place to eat in Torre del Mar called the Vila Malaga, well worth the journey and fun if you can't speak Spanish trying to make yourself understood, Just ask Alan for the recomendations and the phrases needed to ask for the way it's cooked.

we would and already have recomended this villa to our friends & neighbours as a great place to stay.

We will be back.

The best Holiday EVER!!

  • 5 out of 5
My dear owners,

This was our second time at Casa Sydney!! Many thanks for the unforgettable holiday in you’re beautiful villa, we know we pay for it but de price is more then reasonable for the fantastic location at Macharaviaya. The peace that the location offers is unforgettable and more than beautiful!! You really come to peace at Casa Sydney!! We enjoyed the views, the pool and the NEW BBQ!! And off course the special surroundings! You have the choice to enjoy the peace or to go down the mountain to the beach and sweet people of Andalusia in Rincon de La Victoria, the place to be if you don’t like the big tourism!

Dear A and I, Thanks for the fun time and we will speak to you very soon

Lot’s of love from Holland, the land of “alles is onmogelijk and a broodje frikandel”

Absolutely perfect villa!

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I have just (literally!) returned from our holiday at Casa Sydney, and this villa is so beautiful and the welcome from the owners so friendly that I felt compelled to write a rave review about it straight away!

My family (including my OAP parents and two teenage sons) went to Casa Sydney unsure really what to expect - choosing a villa for this age range is difficult! But Casa Sydney was absolutely perfect for our needs. The villa is exceptionally well equipped and is spotlessly clean throughout. It is about 5km up a mountain road from Rincon de la Victoria, and as such is perfectly tranquil and peaceful - the loudest noise that you hear at this villa are the local herd of mountain goats bells tinkling. For rest and relaxation, this villa is absolutely perfect.

Inside the villa, the owners have taken every care to ensure that the facilities are absolutely spot on, from the beautifully fitted kitchen (for those who want to cater for themselves), to the very comfortable bedrooms (all air conditioned). - and everything has been very tastefully completed. Add to this the English TV that is provided - and I shudder to say it - but even our elder teenage son was happy!

Outside, there is a terrace area which is shaded from the heat of the sun during the hottest part of the day (for those who wish to take respite) and the pool area is a perfect size for all those who want to laze around in a cooler place.

The owners of the villa have very thoughtfully put together a drawer full of information about local attractions, but also have provided very detailed information about the simpler things - such as the local supermarkets. Add to that the information that they gave to us about local restaurants, and they even took the trouble to explain the Spanish words that we would need to order our food to our liking!

I cannot praise this villa highly enough - we have rented six villas from Holiday Rentals, and this one is the best by a very long way. As such I sincerely hope that when we come to book next year's holiday this villa is still available!

Having said all of that I would say don't book this villa if:

- you don't like peace and tranquility! (if you want to be in amongst the nightlife of the towns then this might be just too quiet - even though they are only 15 minutes away).

- you don't intend to hire a car (as you will definitely need it).

The perfect holiday in the hills of Andalucia

  • 5 out of 5
Casa Sydney can only be described as 1st class holiday living accommodation. Perfectly situated high up in the hills near Malaga.
The description regarding location , layout and facilities is 100% correct and more !
We vere given instructions on how to find the villa from Malaga airport. We followed this and had no problem,while our hosts Alan and Ilin were there to meet us. They showed us around their beautiful house , and as we arrived at the weekend, they had provided us with all essentials to meet our needs until the following monday.
After unpacking we sat down on the terasse, and shared the bottle of champagne and vine provided by our hosts ,and whilst enjoying the beautiful sunset we could feel the tensness of our journey being replaced with a lovely relaxing feeling . Then we knew this would be a perfect holiday.
The house itself, swimming pool,and remainder of the property was perfectly prepared for our arrival, giving us an immediate feeling of luxury.
Panoramic scenery around the local landscape and further down to the meditaranien sea. Warm summer evenings descending into darkness while monlight nights create a torchlight shadow on the sea giving a feeling of cerenity and warmt.
To be honest the advert for this villa does not really do it justice, as it has much more to offer than what is indicated. The villa itself is situated no more that 10 min drive away from ’ civilised suburbia’, Local to an excellent golf course and access to the main east/vest motorway along the cost of Costa del Sol.
With a car it is easy to get to the beach, shops and resturants no more than 15 min drive away.
We highly recommend Casa Sydney if you are looking for a ’peace and tranquility ’ holiday in the sun, and not a ”charter fever” holiday.
Our hosts Alan & Ilin were extremely kind and helpful tho-ought the whole period giving advise on places to visit and things to do.To be honest we felt perfectly at home.Our warm thanks to them both in creating this palace in the sun !
We would very much like to return to Casa Sydney !

The villa is located about 6 kilometres inland from the main Malaga-Nerja motorway at 1500 ft above sea level, close to the white villages of Macharaviaya and Benaque. It's in a rural setting,the surrounding countryside is covered in almond trees, vines and mangoes. The villa is not overlooked and there are very few houses in the vicinity, ensuring total privacy. The villa is on a minor side road with virtually no traffic, making it very quiet and peaceful.

10 minutes drive down to 18 hole Añoreta golf course,18 hole par 72, designed by Jose Cañizares, and 15 minutes away from the beach. Eroski hypermarket is 20 minutes away and Carrefour hypermarket 15 minutes away.
