But we liked the look of it and someone has to be first. Then a couple of weeks before our trip someone did review the villa. We were not put off, by a couple of the comments and were looking forward to our holiday. On our day of arrival, we had arranged to meet James at the villa at lunchtime. We didnt have too much trouble finding El Nido,the road is a bit bumpy but that's to be expected being up in the hills. The villa has everything you could need and is very clean and comfortable. The pool and patio was lovely, all enclosed by flowers and palm trees and the sun shining down on it all day. The outside eating area was perfectly shaded and lovely and cool. The previous review mentioned dogs barking. We did hear them but was not woken or put off by them, You are in the country and surrounded by woodland, would much prefer that than people shouting. You can walk into town from the villa but it's quite a walk, (about 25 minutes)but if your feeling energetic, why not. We visited many of the surrounding towns but found Mijas the most beautiful. We had a lovely stay, James and Connie are lovely and are very accommodating. PS ... Do not touch the buttons on the device,(on the cabinet) in the main bedroom, is not anything to do with the TV,............ it's an SOS...... and does work.....Thanks James for the late night call. Sorry😘

                                                                                                      I spent a week here in July with my family, 4 adults and 1 child. Very easy to find from the airport and in a great location with a supermarket 5 minutes drive away and the cost at Torremalinos about 20 minutes or so away. The grounds are lovely with a fantastic pool area with great mountain views and a fruit orchard with more plum trees than you can count! The house itself was more than adequate although I did think the kitchen a bit on the small side, but it had everything that you could want. Beds where comfortable. I cant speak for the lounge area or the TV facilities because we didn't use it all week, choosing to spend all our time under the covered porch. All in all we really enjoyed our stay there. The only downside during our stay was that i think there was a wasps nest, maybe in the fruit orchard as there was a large number around all of the time and both my wife and grandson got stung. Also the little "yappy" dogs across the road, yapping all day and most of the night, although i do understand these are outside of the owners control. I do feel that if the porch was enclosed in a fine mesh, this would help reduce the wasps/flys, particularly at meal times. With the wasps gone and if someone would "neck" the dogs opposite, I would happily revisit this property again
