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.

Superschönes Ferienhaus mit viel Luxsus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Ferienhaus 2 tolle Wochen verbracht welche viel zu schnell vorrüber waren. Das Haus ist toll eingericht, der Garten mit Pool ein Traum. Wir hatten noch nie ein Ferienhaus mit so vielen Liegemöglichkeiten (Hängematte,Liegestühle,tolles Bett auf der Terrasse). Wir waren über die ganze Einrichtung und die Deko total begeister. Alles ist super, sauber und die Lage ist mehr als perfekt. Es ist abgelegen aber man ist in 5 Minuten im nächsten Ort mit vielen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten,Restaurants. Die Autobahn ist 15 Minuten entfernt. Wir hatten super Wetter, da es nicht so weit in den Berg liegt. Nick und Annie sind super nett.

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

We have spent 2 great wees in the House that went away way too fast. The house is great, the garden with a pool a dream. We never had a house with that many reclining options (hammock, beach chairs, great bed on the terrace). We were totally impressed by the decoration everything is great and clean and the location is more than perfect. It is secluded but it is only 5 minutes away from the next town with many shops, restaurants and interstate. It is about 15 minutes of driving to the next motorway. We had great weather as it is not so far into the mountain. Nick and Annie are really nice.

We are defenitely coming back!

Best Holiday Ever

  • 5 of 5

A piece of paradise in a stunning location. The accommodation is superb as it easily coped with 2 family's. Lovely views at all times during the day and the stars at night with the soundtrack of the wildlife in the background. Plenty to do for kids with Jacuzzi, Pool, Pool table and Arcade Game. Play your favorite tunes as load as you like as no neighbours to annoy (Rick i loved the original eighties cds lol). Everything homely is there for you even your own pet dog (oscar you are a star) who will look after you during your stay. Would love to go back one day which usually says it all.
