There is something for everyone on this coast - lively Fuengirola is just 6 minutes away. Our house is located only twenty minutes from the airport and only 400 mts. from the beach, supermarkets, restaurants, buses and taxis. It belongs to Mijas Costa. Its one of the most picturesque villages of Andalucia. Surrounded by many golf courses, covering all the province of Malaga. On the east side is the Port of Benalmadena. On the west is Puerto Banus and Marbella, enjoying fame and luxury. In just twenty minutes away, you will find the Marina Selwo Aquarium in Benalmadena and the Tivoli amusement park. In Fuengirola you find a Zoo and Aqua Park
We have just returned from spending a week at this lovely villa, which is only a 5-min walk from the beach.
We chose this villa as it has plenty of bedrooms (4) and bathrooms (3) to easily accommodate our large family of 4 adults and 4 children, and when we arrived we were definitely not disappointed. It has bags of space, lots of cupboards/storage and being over 3 levels we never felt on top of each other.
It has all the mod cons you would expect and plenty of plates, cutlery etc which can often be lacking in holiday rentals. It also had useful things like strong shopping bags and clothes driers (with plenty pegs!) so you can hang up your washing or wet towels outside on one of the many balconies or terraces. The pool was a good size and there were lots of sun loungers plus there are 3 different eating areas outside (on the various levels) which again made this villa such a pleasure to stay at.
For us the location was also key as we didn't want to rent a car so deliberately chose somewhere close to Malaga Airport (approx 30-mins by taxi) and we wanted to be able to walk to the beach, restaurants and a supermarket. There are lots of family-friendly beaches nearby with beach bars and we visited these a lot. There are a few restaurants near the villa - one of our kid's favourites was Papa Luigi's which served simple but good Italian food (pizza, pasta) and had very reasonable prices. There is a supermarket within the nearby Los Amigos Beach Club resort which we visited daily to stock up on all the usual essentials.
For a larger supermarket you can get a bus to Fuengirola (the stop is a 5-min walk from the villa), which has a large shopping mall called the Miramar and also a large Lidl. In fact we visited Fuengirola a couple of times as it is so close (10-mins by bus) and very cheap to travel to by bus.
You can also get a bus to Marbella (the stop is on the main road about 15-min walk from the villa) - this bus also stops at all the towns on the way to Marbella. We particularly enjoyed walking around the old part of Marbella which was very pretty and very traditionally Spanish.
Throughout the whole booking process and prior to our stay, the owner has been very quick to respond and was very helpful when answering my questions.
So overall, we enjoyed a fantastic week staying at this villa which had everything we needed and more, plus gave us easy to access to so many great places. We hope to return again in the future.
Comfortable, spacious and well kept house. Owner is helpful and fast with communication. Many places of interest are within easy reach (Marbella, Malaga, Gibraltar, Ronda, Sierra Nevada, Granada, Torcal de Antequera, etc..)
The only thing wrong with this villa was that our stay there ended too soon!
The photos on the web site, although showing the house in a great light, certainly did not do the villa justice. The sea looks farther away in the photos than in reality and the house was much bigger. Very Spanish in style but with every conceivable mod-con. Even large Tesco like shopping bags were provided. Great quality air con in every room, Large private pool on lowest level, 3 bedrooms on first floor close enough together to keep and eye on young members of the family without them feeling isolated, 2 bathrooms and showers on this floor, and a beautiful very large bedroom with en suite, walk in wardrobe and jacuzzi bath on the 2nd floor. The living room, dining room and kitchen were also on this floor as well as an terrace dining table and chairs. There were enough sun loungers, sun chairs, tables, chairs and furniture outdoors to equip a small army! (Unlike previous years where the villas were sadly lacking in enough sun loungers and seating. The free house Wi Fi (2 networks) was very welcome and useful to the younger family members who could keep to date with developments from home on facebook, e mails and internet without worrying about mobile phone rip off charges whilst abroad. I was very impressed with the standard of everything in the villa. Everything was in a new condition and extremely well maintained, also it was well equipped with a large fridge in the kitchen and a large fridge freezer in the utility room. It is more like a small boutique hotel than villa. It is truly great and the best property I have stayed in to date. I would recommend it to anyone, but is particularly suitable for a large family or party up to 8 very comfortably without the over crowed feeling. I would give it 10/10 on every level.
I could go on and on but if you like me only read a few lines of a review this will do. Denis, N/Ireland
Diese Villa ist einfach großartig!
Liebevoll, stilvoll und sinnvoll eingerichtet, extrem gut verwaltet, betreut und gesäubert, wundervoll gelegen und geradezu verschwenderisch luxuriös gebaut.
Das sind die griffigsten Attribute, die mir zu 'El Capricho' einfallen.
Wir durften (leider nur!) eine Woche im Oktober dort verbringen und haben eine wunderschöne spätsommerliche Zeit verlebt.
Das Haus und die dazu gehörigen Außenbereiche bieten mehr als genug Raum um sich aus dem Weg zu gehen, aber ebenso viele schöne Ecken, um sich zu treffen.
Diese sind unterschiedlich gestaltet, sodass man je nach Wetter, Anlass, Sonnenstand, oder Windrichtung entscheiden kann, wo man gerade essen möchte (z.B. grillen im Patio, oder neben dem Pool), wo man gemeinsam sitzen möchte (draußen auf der Terasse neben den Schlafräumen, am Pool, oder direkt vor dem Wohn-/Essbereich, oder vielleicht drinnen im sehr kuscheligen Wohnzimmer mit Kaminofen,...), oder wo man einfach nur chillen möchte. Für alles ist gesorgt. Das Gepäck muss nicht überfüllt werden, weil es eine Waschmaschine (und sogar ein Bügelbrett und -eisen) gibt. Das Einkaufen ist super möglich in der großen Einkaufsmall, die mit dem Auto in 10min. erreichbar in Fuengirola liegt und für den kleinen Einkauf im kleinen Supermarkt, der am Fuße des Hügels in 4min. zu Fuß erreichbar ist. Für die Einkäufe stehen im Haus zwei Kühlschränke und ein Gefrierschrank zur Verfügung. Wir waren zweimal essen im nahe gelegenen, hervorragenden Fischrestaurant (es gibt nicht nur Fisch), wo netter und guter Service und angemessene Preise existierten und auch wenn im Oktober das Meer nicht mehr wirklich warm ist, war es am Strand sehr schön. Wir wollen so bald wie möglich wiederkommen und raten allen, die sich einen ungetrübten Urlaub leisten wollen, das Gleiche zu tun. Vielen Dank an dieser Stelle auch nochmal an die norwegischen Besitzer! We really had a great time!
A short distance away is La Cala golf and country club; several more courses including El Chapparal, Miraflores, Mijas golf, Santa Maria, Rio Real etc are all within a 10-minute drive. Sophisticated Marbella with its designer shops and Puerto Banus are only 15-20 minutes drive away
