We stayed for 5 days in August as part of a longer trip. The house, gardens and pool are exactly as described and very comfortable and in excellent condition. Pool and terrace in particular are really nice and private. The area is very suburban and not touristy, for us that was a great thing, but it does mean you need a car or taxi to get to restaurants etc.
Just a word of note the owner does actually live on site in an apartment underneath the house which we were not really aware of. However they are very discrete and we never saw them unless we needed to during our stay.
It would have been 5 star except location was a little more distant than expected and we had a few niggles with power cuts etc during the our stay. If you have a large car, 4X4 or minivan beware the parking is a little tight and not much manoeuvre room. The nearest beaches are a 20 minute walk, parking is tough but nice area once you walk through the less nice apartment blocks and very much a locals area with great range of beach side restaurants.
This is a good base to visit other areas being a very short drive to the main coast highway, Nerja only 30 minutes away etc.
Overall a very well spec'ed and comfortable villa in suburban Malaga with excellent hosts who were very helpful before and during our stay.
PS - A kettle would be a fantastic addition for British visitors
Perfect villa for our stay, more than enough room for 12 of us (6 adults and 6 kids). The villa is huge and has a great outdoor area. Felix and Luis were very welcoming and showed us around the villa and gave us information about the local area. It was Malaga holiday week so no supermarkets were open on the Sunday/Monday so Luis took us to a shop in the town where we could buy food. The local beach and seafood restaurants are nearby, we found meals and drinks to be very reasonably priced. Malaga is only a short drive away or the bus is only €1.50. The kids spent most of the week in the pool as we relaxed in the sunshine. Great holiday in a beautiful villa!
