The pool is literally at the doorstep and the garden is very well kept and looked after. Lovely surroundings! It has been bliss spending long days by the pool under a bright blue sky, and from the patio there is a full view of the pool area, so keeping an eye on the children is easy. The house itself is very spacious and boasts a total of four floors. The rooms - and every part of the property - are clean and inviting, and the best thing was that it is decorated in such a way, that it is easy to stay there with two small children (ours were 3½ and almost 2). There are no fragile bits and bobs that can be knocked over and the surfaces are easily wiped over and kept clean. For that purpose the kitchen is well-stocked with products although guests are not obliged to make use of them during their stay. There is also a washing machine, and even an electric citrus juicer for when you feel like collecting limes straight from the tree outside the kitchen windows. Dierk, the realtor who administers the property, was always just a text message away and helpful with advice or service. Benajarafe is a lovely, quiet place and doesn't have an internet cafe, for example, so he was kind to print and deliver some documents to us. He didn't have to but he goes out of his way to keep the service at top level. If we book another holiday in that part of Andalucía, we really would not hesitate to check if the very same property is available. Highly recommended.

Was a 30-40 min journey and cost is €40. Apartment was very clean and homely with mod cons eg tv, wifi, air con , fully equipped kitchen and bathroom with washing machine and tumble dryer. Loved that it was beachfront and walking distance to many restaurants, bars and shops. The supermarkets were very cheap and we were able to buy a lot for our money when doing our shop. The area was nice and quiet not too busy when out and about. Not really a tourist area. Was our first self catering holiday and enjoyed the freedom from hotels dining times. Made full use of the kitchen as well as going out to explore. Was nice to have our own check in and out times. We went to: Legends bar: Great bar with cheap food and drinks. Carman: Amazing paella and seafood. Taj Mahal: Very enjoyable Indian at a good price. Kebab house: Good price and tasty takeaway. Aquavelous- was closed when we arrived :( Swimming pool: opening times 11-15 then 17-20. Closed after the 15th September. Beach: spent most of our time on the beach. Very nice.

We were an extended family of 18 with three very young kids and a few friends. The owners met us on arrival (despite us being quite late) and they were thorough and helpful in advising what to do, what not to do, local eateries, shops etc. The villa and garden had plenty of room for all of us, and enough areas for people to have space when needed - the pool area, table tennis area, outdoor dining, and the villa itself - so even with 18 people, it didn't feel crowded. The villa accommodated our large group well, with enough kitchen and dining stuff, and enough chairs, table space etc (and two high chairs). In August it was pretty warm, so we always ate outside and made use of the BBQ on a couple of evenings. Internet access in the main villa building was good. Satellite TV gave us a few UK channels. The villa and garden faces south west, and you get good views with the sea visible a couple of miles south. Gardeners appeared later in the week and did the grass, tidied up, topped up the pool etc. All very efficient. There is a good Mercadona supermarket in Torres del Mar - probably 10 mins drive (tip, don't buy carrier bags, buy a roll of handled bin-liners - you'll need them). A few days into our holiday, the kitchen tap failed. We emailed the owners and they came out, assessed the problem, arrived next morning with a new tap. They also helped when we were looking to hire a wheelchair for a day. Great response and support. Excellent overall. Definitely a good villa to hire if you comprise a large group.
