A separate guest house provides the 3rd double bedroom, shower room, and new chIldrens bedroom and shower room.Access to the truly stunning large covered terrace from kitchen is the summer central living area for the whole property which includes gas barbie, outdoor kitchen, jacuzzi, a pool table and dining and lounge seating (sofas) areas with TV and music system and open log fire. From the pool are views of the valley from a viewing platform where you can enjoy the sunrise or sunset or just use it simply for sunbathing purposes on the double 'chill out' bed complete with roof, Moroccan cushions and privacy curtains. Or laze with a drink on the Swing for 2.

The new children's room and shower/wc increases the accommodation so a total of 12 could be housed very comfortably but not totally suitable for 6 couples. A mix of adults and children would be much preferred due to number of single beds.

All linen and towels (inc. beach/pool towels) are provided and are costed into the weekly rental.

There will be a £400 returnable security deposit to be paid with final balance and prior to collecting the keys and which will be returned upon departure providing there are no breakages or damage to the property.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. 14 of us in total and plenty of room for everyone. Loved the outdoor space with seating, music, table,pool, darts and hot tub. With a fridge, Bbq and hob outside meant the adults hardlly spent anytime indoors.. but the tv and wifi kept the kids happy if indoors. Rick on hand the whole time should anything go wrong. Can't fault the place. Car absolutely necessary. Hope you revisit in the future

Best villa in costa del sol

  • 5 of 5

2nd time we've stayed, wouldn't stay anywhere else. Lots of room, very clean and owners very helpful and can't do enough to help with your stay . Not forgetting the very adorable dog who just makes the place feel like a home from home. Would recommend anybody to stay.

Amazing villa with epic views

  • 5 of 5

We was a group of 14 with 6 of us adults and 8 kids and had plenty of space, this villa is by far the best villa we've been to, it had everything you could need and more the pictures don't do this place justice. when we arrived we was blown away by the villa and then had the privilege to take in the stunning views, the outside lounge area was a real treat for us as we spent most nights out there with the music playing and with some of us playing darts, using the pool table and the arcade machine and just chilling out in general a real plus point for us. The supermarkets are just 10mins away and there is a lovely little town that has everything you need about 10mins away as well. The bbq was special for me really great and had a lot of use from us as well as the jacuzzi. The owners Rick an Annie were really helpfull, Rick was there straight away if we needed anything or had any problems and he was real gentleman you were absolutely fantastic Rick so thank you so much. And thank both of you for letting us stay at your villa and letting us experience such an amazing, outstanding an impeccable place we will for sure always have lovely memories from there and can't wait to do it all over again, so hope to see you guys again next year thank you!

Fantastic villa with great outside space & views

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at this villa in June with 5 adults and 2 children and had a brilliant time. The accommodation was spacious and immaculately clean with everything you would need for a break away. The outside seating area and BBQ was a great addition and the BBQ was used almost every night. The Jacuzzi, dartboard, pool table and bowls made for great evening entertainment, when we weren't admiring the views with a drink in hand. The pool area and sunbeds were clean and well maintained, with plenty of space for everyone. The location of the villa is great for the airport and local supermarkets and not far from the coast to get to beaches. Everything was close by, but the villa was quiet and relaxing with great views across the mountains. We would highly recommend this villa for families or groups of friends.

Amazing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely brilliant. Stayed here a couple of years ago and had a great time. Returned this year to find the improvements made it even better. You won't be disappointed as there is everything you could possible want. I have already booked three weeks for next year. The town is only a couple of minutes drive but you proabably won't want leave the house that often. If you're looking for somewhere to chill and enjoy all the home comforts and more then look no further. You won't find better value. One small negative is the lack of air con in the children's room as it can get quite warm in there, but everything elso makes up for this.
