We love its peace and tranquility surrounded by the olive and fruit trees. The view from the balcony takes full advantage of the elevated position of the house, looking over to top of Frigiliana and Nerja, over the Mediterranean and on a clear day you can make out the mountains of Morocco; just incredible. We were the in February so the lovely woodburner was very much appreciated in the evenings. The area is so varied with many things to see from beach resorts, to stunning mountain landscapes to fascinating historical sites. We love it so much that we are already booked for 2018!

The managers Boz and Polly Cannon have been our managers two times before in an other appartments, LIke always there was no reason to complain. You get a good explication how everything works in the property. There is always a welcome present and thei even dont forget the birthdays. As well, thei are very helpfull if you have any problems that requieres a doctor, dentist etc. and help you to find one. there is a little balcony perfect for breakfast in the morning sun and there is a wunderfull rooof top terrace for each one that needs the sun for the rest of the day. There are hiking advices, games to play etc. A good place to stay.

From the start of enquiry Mike (the owner) responded immediately. In fact from our first email we had a phone call within 20 minutes. The Cabin was perfect for our stay. Fully equipped throughout,clean comfortable and cosy the heating was great at night when it became cooler. Wifi was excellent. The pool and garden areas are stunning and immaculate, lots of trees and greenery. If its privacy you like as we do then look no we didn't see another sole during our stay as it's up a private drive. Mike the owner was great help giving us advice on where to go and things to do, always at the end of the phone if needed. A more genuine person you couldn't meet. The area itself has lots to do and is very traditional. Shops bars and restaurants are a handy 10 minute walk away. The coast is a 20 minute drive away as are several huge shopping centres. One thing we did notice is how friendly the local Spanish people were compared with many other parts of Spain we have visited. If you make the effort to say hello your never get away the next time they see you. We liked it so much we're booked for another week soon. Thank you Mike for all your help and advice. We're see you very soon! Dave Abbott and Family Perth Scotland
