Thank you David, Jacqui and Sally because Thanks to you we spent a great stay in Alcaucin. The villa was clean, well located, and we enjoyed the swimming pool. It's was great time for all of us and we appreciated this quiet place and the wonderful view. We recommand this villa for sure !

It really is the most magical place for a family of four. Our children love the pool which our little girl learned to swim in last year, and our youngest gained loads of confidence this year, so they were practically never out of it. The pictures and description of The Cabin are very accurate and Mike goes out of his way to ensure you have everything you need, without being obtrusive. Alcuacin is a delightful village just up the road and for any other amenities, Torre del Mar is about 20 minutes away by car where there is a huge Lidl, a Water park, McDonalds, a Shopping Centre, and of course the beach. It really is worth everyone of the 5 stars that I, and so many others have rated it. We will be back.

The villa is a perfect resting place for any family and I would fully recommend; fully equipped with everything that you need. It's a no brainer - hope to be back soon...
