About Nick Westby
The property was our family home and has seen many family gatherings over the years. We now live and work in the UK but still enjoy holidays at the villa. Feel free to call us with questions or even just to get to know more about us. We do not use management agents and we handle all bookings directly. We have a local family taking care of the house who we have known for over 10 years and they are on hand for any support you may need.
Nick Westby purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Nick Westby chose Almuñécar
We travelled throughout Spain looking for a place to live. We had lived in France for a while but found the climate warmer and drier and the friendliness of the Spanish people appealing. After 2 years exploring all the Spanish coastline we decided on Almunecar, because of its micro-climate, culture and natural beauty. This property was perfect for our needs as we were close to the beach and to the promenade. You can walk into town in 35 minutes along the beach front. You are only 55 minutes to Malaga airport and 75 minutes to the skiing village in the Sierra Nevada. The views from the lounge and 5 of the 6 bedrooms are across a beautiful bay and to the Marina. You can also see the beach. We often see shoals of fish and dolphins in the bay. I keep an eye on other villas to see how we compare on price and on facilities and we improve the house every year. I believe you will find it very difficult to get a better venue in a better location with a better view at this price anywhere in Portugal, France, Spain or Italy.
What makes this Villa unique
This house has something for everyone. Big pool, lots of sunbathing terraces, grass area with hammocks, 100m2 sports court, play equipment, gymnasium (with weights punch bag multi gyms). Without a doubt the biggest selling point is the views and the proximity to the beach and the promenade to walk into town. As we property professionals say LOCATION is the most important and this property is in a perfect location. Just high enough for an amazing view but close enough to hear the sound of the waves. Just 5 minutes walk to the promenade and its bars and restaurants but no noisy traffic or disco music. Everyone is happy at Casa Felicidad from the Grand parents to the parents to the children of all ages. You are just 50 minutes to the city of Malaga and 60 minutes to the historic city of Granada where you can enjoy the world famous Alhambra and the General Life.The magnificent Nerja caves are just a 15 minute drive.

Nice villa but needs a little updating, great views once you have climbed the killer hill
We were very pleased with the villa and the view. The facilities were very good, pool and the sports area were great. There were one or two small problems on arrival that were quickly sorted out by maintenance. I think it only fair to point out that the villa was at the top of a steep hill although taxis were available. I would also point out that for people arriving on a Saturday most food shops are closed on a Sunday but overall we had a lovely time and would recommend the villa to friends.
Super property for family holidays
We had a fantastic time in Casa Felicidad, it was ideal for a large family holiday. Brilliant views, great weather lovely restaurants and tapas bars to visit.
Beautiful villa, lovely views and location.
Celebrated my 60th birthday here with my family. All ages loved the facilities , accommodation and surrounding area. Brilliant for all ages. The little ones especially loved the basket ball court, and I managed to score a few baskets too. We would highly recommend it.
Amazing views with a great location.
We loved this villa as it had great views and was just a short walk to the beach. The weather was fantastic considering it was November.
Less than 5 minute walk to get on to the promenade with lots of bars and restaurants. Scenery is breathtaking and we even saw dolphins in the bay!
The owner was really helpful before and during our stay and we were delighted with the service.
We have already recommended the property to friends celebrating a 60th birthday. 10/10
Lovely, friendly villa for a perfect holiday
We stayed at the villa for two weeks. Everything went as planned and the villa was exactly as described, or actually even better. It had everything we needed, the pretty city of Almuñécar was closeby and we made several daytrips to interesting places by car as well. It suited very well for our sporty purposes since we organized homeschooling with training activities for young athletes from Finland. We can absolutely recommend the villa for anyone who wishes to get a stressfree, easy and comfortable stay in Almuñécar.
Thanks for your review. I am delighted you had a good time. It is a great area for outdoor adventures with rock climbing, walking and traversing canyons as well as all the sea sports. We look forward to your next group visit. You can also use the sports stadium facilities but just ask me in advance.
The Costa Tropical region
Granada is in Andalucia and home to the Sierra Nevada ski resort and the Alhambra Palace and Generalife. The Alhambra was recently voted as the eighth wonder of the world. The ski resort is normally open from the end of November to the end of April. The Sierra Nevada has hosted world championship skiing and snow boarding and is less than 1 hours drive to the coast. There are also many bars restaurants, snowboarding park, fixed rail toboggan run, birds of prey etc.
The historic city of Granada is lively and vibrant all year around due to the well preserved architecture and its status as an international university city. Amazingly under-developed and stunning and retaining genuine Andalucian style and charm. A very safe city and region by comparison to other regions of Spain and is very popular with Spanish tourists as well as international tourists all year around. The coastline is called the Costa Tropical and enjoys a genuine micro climate of cooler summer temperatures and warmer winter temperatures, due to its location directly south of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, which protects the coast from cold continental winters and the extreme temperatures of inland Spanish summers. Granada is the only province to still give FREE tapas with your drink so enjoy great cuisine for free. The Costa Tropical has Nature Reserves where you can enjoy breathtaking scenery and exhilarating walks. Seeing Ibex, mountain goats, wild boar and eagles is not unusual if you know where to look. There are great canyon walks with fresh water waterfalls and pools. The area is home to a substantial Marine reserve so the snorkeling and scuba diving is some of the best in Spain with a wide variety of fish and marine life. In brief the Costa Tropical is where mountainous countryside meets the Mediterranean sea. It is green and tranquil with nightlife in the town. A perfect mix.
Almunecar is the resort capital of Granada and was identified as the number one resort for Spanish people to go on holiday (Observer news paper). It is to be the new home of a 7 star hotel resort provided by Banyan Tree Group. Almunecar has a host of activities from a castle, water park , sports facilities (football, tennis, paddle etc), boat cruises, boat hire, best scuba diving in marine reserve, nature walks in natural reserve parkland, cannoning, waterfalls, abseiling , rock climbing, parapenting/hang-gliding, schools (language, flamenco, cooking, art, hang gliding, scuba), great snorkelling, paint-balling, 4x4 adventures, quad bike excursions, archery, etc. There are a choice of horse riding facilities and three golf courses to chose from 15 minutes to 40 minutes drive. There are 5 museums in Almunecar and a castle. They have concerts and jazz festivals in the Botanical gardens. La Herradura ( a village within Almunecar township) is the host to the world famous Segovia classical guitar competition. There is an amazing aquarium with underwater tunnels and sharks. There is a water park just a 15 minute walk along the promenade from the centre of town. Fishing trips can be arranged from the exclusive and beautiful Marina Del Este in La Herradura. There is the old town to explore with its old cobbled streets, Phoenician ruins, Roman ruins, museums, botanical gardens, flamenco shows, famous Bonsai tree exhibition. A wide array of restaurants from giant paella on the beach, to Asian fusion cooking, to cordon bleu quality chefs from all around the world.
Almunecar is famous for its massive firework display and fiesta in August and its huge Easter processions which attracts over 100,000 visitors from all over the world.
