My husband and I were lucky enough to stay here for a week in Sept. The property is lovely and Nicky the owner was really helpful with nothing too much trouble.
We had full use of the garden and pool during our stay.
The property is on a nice quiet road with easy access to local shops and restaurants. San Pedro was a 15 to 20 min walk and cost about 7Euros in a taxi. We also walked to Puerto Banus in about an hour 15 min and visited Estopona and Ronda.
Overall a brilliant week we would highly recommend a stay with Nicky and her family.
This is a charming villa in a lovely quiet location but still within walking distance of all amenities.
The photos on the website are accurate although the pool was bigger than expected along with the mature garden with several different types of fruit trees (sadly not ripe whilst we were there). There is plenty of shade if required and the terrace is south facing and gets the sun pretty much all day. The pool is not overlooked and is very secluded, and we rarely heard any noise from the nearby properties.
Inside, the villa was spotlessly clean and the air conditioning worked well.
The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and plenty of storage space available. Alarm system easy to use and gave peace of mind although the area feels very safe. The TV was a bit flakey in that it seemed to freeze quite a bit but Gemma is aware and is working on a solution. Loads of English channels though, more than you could wish for.
The beach is an 8 minute stroll (walk straight down the road and it takes you too the pricey Maccao beach bar). The beach is a bit shingly and it wasn’t easy to get into the sea but is pretty nonetheless and plenty of room to put your towel down if you don’t fancy paying for a sunbed (20 euros for frontline at the Maccao but you can get them further along for 5 euros). Turn left at the Maccao and there are more Chiringuitos, all with sunbeds at varying prices. Eventually this brings you to the promenade which has more bars and restaurants - note that some of these are quite pricey and better value can be found in the town itself. Walking in the other direction from the villa (about 10 minutes) brings you to the charming town of San Pedro itself. Loads of bars, restaurants and very Spanish feel. I got a round of drinks for 4 euros for 3 of us in one of the traditional bars. Tapas is also inexpensive.
There is a Spar about 3 mins walk from the villa but for a better supermarket, carry on straight up to the Colonia Commercial Centre (there is a McDonalds here if that floats your boat), to the Dia supermarket. This place was extremely cheap (500 ml can of San Miguel for 37 cents for example) and you could also buy freshly squeezed orange juice here along with any other items you could need.
Gemma was a lovely host and I always felt I could contact her if any issues had arisen.
I would definitely return to this property and highly recommend it to anyone considering booking it.
