About the property

3 Aircondtiioned bedrooms,1 kingsize,1 double,1 twin and 2 full bathrooms

This villa is very spacious and airy with marble floors throughout. There is an entrance porch and hallway which leads to the lounge and bedrooms. The lounge has two sets of patio doors leading onto garden and BBQ area. Two of the bedrooms also have patio doors leading onto a terrace. The lounge, dining room and kitchen are large and open plan with a breakfast bar. Wireless internet has been installed to which ipads, tablets, mobile phones, laptops etc can all be connected. There is UK television with BBC, ITV, channel 4 and other channels. The television is a flat screen model. The villa has full air conditioning/heating throughout all bedrooms and lounge and the lounge has an additional open fire. Both the bathrooms have electric heaters for winter bookings.. There is also a utility room adjoining the kitchen which houses the washing machine. The private pool is kidney shaped and as the garden faces south there is all day sunshine. In the garden there is a pool table and a table tennis table which is very popular with both the young and not so young! A car is highly recommended and the villa is only a 4 minute drive to El Coto which has 4 restaurants and bars, supermarket, chemist and pizza take away. The nearest restaurandt/bar is La Luna which is withing the urbanisation Campo Mijas and is owned by an English couple The large hypermarket is a 6 minute drive with Fuengirola and its beaches just 7 minutes away. Mijas is approximately a 10 minute drive.

The villa is accessed through electric gates which can only be opened by a secure code or remote control which makes the villa very private and secure. The gates close immediately after you go through them. When you drive through the gates you drive down a driveway to the villa and the parking for the villa is right next door to the gate so to take your shopping etc inside is very easy.

The main bedroom is very large with an ensuite bathroom and a king size bed and patio doors onto the terrace and garden next to the swimming pool. The other bedrooms are one double and one twin room and they share the other large bathroom.

This villa is particularly private, quiet and peaceful as there are no main roads nearby and when you wake in the morning all you can hear is the birds singing.

About David Ainscough

I am David Ainscough and I am the property manager for the villa on behalf of Linda and Pat. Unfortunately Linda’s elderly mother in Uk is very unwell and they have asked me to look after the property for them. Nothing in the villa has changed except I will be looking after the property and guests. Myself and my wife Karen have lived in Spain for a while now and my wife Karen’s parents have lived here for 17 years. I used to be a chartered accountant and am now having a complete change of direction in my life which hopefully will be far less stressful and much more enjoyable. I assure all guests that I will look after them personally to ensure they are comfortable in the same way as Linda and Pat have always done.


Why David Ainscough chose Mijas

We chose this area to make our new home because we have spent so much time year over the years when visiting Karen’s parents and we just love the area. We like it because there is so much nearby with lots of shops, restaurants, sandy beaches. Fuengirola is also very central to visit lots of interesting places on the Costa del Sol.

What makes this villa unique

When you stay at Villa Higueras we make sure that the villa is a place that you always feel at home in. We always keep an eye on things so that everything is just what our guests want, which is why we have installed the wireless internet as we felt it was an important thing to have for people on holiday to keep in touch with both family and business etc. The villa is very conveniently located as it is quiet and private but also a short drive to shops, beaches and restaurants. As we live so close we look after everything personally and should our guests have any problems we can be there within 5 mins to help in any way we can. The villa is always kept up to date with appliances and we have put in a new fridge and a flat screen television

Lovely Villa but access quite difficult

  • 3 of 5

The villa was clean and is well laid out and has everything you need, although some of the facilities could do with upgrading or replacing. Having internet access and English TV is a bonus. We enjoyed our weeks stay - we know the area very well and the weather was perfect- but it is essential to have a car as there are no local facilities you can walk to. The claim that it is suitable for the elderly or infirm is somewhat misleading. Certainly the villa itself is, being on one level, however the access to it is via an extremely steep drive which requires very careful clutch and handbrake control to negotiate when exiting and I dread to think what you would do if you met a neighbour on one of the bends coming in the opposite direction. We did have a problem with mosquito bites but I guess that can be a problem anywhere with a hot climate but maybe the high hedge around the property and being surrounded by undeveloped land could be a factor, in any case I would recommend taking a repellant and ensure the bedrooms have plug-in repellants.

Lovely 9days away!

  • 5 of 5

Great villa, spent 9nights here with our 2 daughters and found it absolutely ideal for a family holiday. Short drive to major resorts and attractions. Large supermarket only 5mins away which was very convenient.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We initially booked to stay here for just over 4 weeks but ended up extending to 6 weeks. It has everything you need and was great for our whole family including our dogs.

Linda and Pat are lovely people and incredibly helpful if you need to contact them about anything.

The villa was in a perfect location for us (close enough to the beach and town but far enough away to be nice and quiet), although you do need a car if you are going to want to get out and about.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased you had a lovely time and the weather was really good for December/January. As you know we do try to be available for any of our guests should they need us for anything at all and it worked out great for you to be able to extend and enjoy the villa and the weather. As the villa is a quiet private location it is ideal for someone who wants a peaceful holiday whilst being near enough to the town for an evening out and shopping in the large hypermarkets. We both look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

We definatly share the excitment of the other reviewers. We were a bit affraid of being disapointed, because we had high expectations, but everything was really super!

We hope to visit the villa again sometime.

From our point of view a car is nesesary, because it will make it much easier to visit the surounding cities and beaches. It is very difficult to drive down the driveway in a big car, but then we parked the car in the street without any trouble.

A little thing we were wondering before we arrived was the dept of the pool. It is 1m deep in one end and 2m deep in the other end. So it fits all.

The owners of the house also get our warmest recomendations! Very very kind and helpfull, both before and during the stay. Really there was NOTHING bad to mention

Owner's Response: Thank you Tina for such lovely words and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I remember you had that big 7 seater van and although you did drive it up and down the driveway a couple of times I am pleased it worked out when I suggested it was completely safe outside the electric gates. I am also pleased the pool was perfect for you and the children and the special bed we got for the little one worked out so well I do hope we get to meet you and your family again, particularly when you left here it was hot and sunny and you arrived back in Denmark to 16 degrees. Thanks again and hopefully see you all again. Linda

Fuengirola is just 20km from Malaga airport and has fabulous beaches which stretch for approx 5 km from Torreblanca to the Moorish Castle at the other end. Our villa is very centrally located as within a few minutes drive you can reach Fuengirola with its beaches, restaurants, shops and bars. Mijas Pueblo is also just a few minutes drive, this a very Spanish style village with the most panoramic views, there is also a vast selection of restaurants, bars and many souvenier shops. If you are keen on golf, there are many golf courses nearby, the nearest one being Mijas Golf. The Miramar shopping mall with its cinemas, restaurants and shops is approximately 10 minutes drive and is perfect for a day out. Primark is a recent addition to this shopping mall and is very popular. Fuengirola is also well known for its zoo as it is very popular and is located right in the centre of the town, although when in the zoo you would not know this. It is a lovely zoo for all ages. Tivoli world, Aquapark and Lew Hoads tennis club are all nearby.

Golf: On the Costa del Sol there are numerous golf courses, many of which are within 10 minute drive from our villa. Mijas Golf and La Cala Golf are very close.
