Overview

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 Linda Murphy

We are Patrick and Linda Murphy and we are 68 years old and are now retired. We used to own a hotel in Cornwall, which we sold in 2000 and we moved to Spain shortly afterwards. When we were first in Spain we lived in Villa Higueras and now we live just five minutes away. This means we are always close by if required for any problem. We look after the villa personally to ensure that all guests are very comfortable.

.

Linda Murphy purchased this villa in 2001

Why Linda Murphy chose Mijas area

After we sold our hotel, we came to Fuengirola on holiday and liked the area so much we decided to buy a home here. 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 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

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was lovely to meet you and considering it was February/March the weather was wonderful, which really helped with the horse show. I hope to see you again perhaps next year if there is another horse show at the Hippodrome. I am so pleased the villa proved to be a successful place to come home to each night and you felt at home there and were able to enjoy all the villa's facilities.

Perfect family holiday .

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this villa for 2 weeks with my husband and 3 kids (12,7,3) this villa is perfect for families and couples.

The day we arrived we had a problem with our car hire and we had to get a taxi to the villa (50 euro from airport) I emailed Linda straight away and she came to the villa within 20 mins to help us out and then Patrick took my husband to the airport to pick the car up , I really don't know what we would have done without them .

My first impressions of the villa when we arrived was that it feels a lot bigger inside than the pics look , we felt at home straight away it really is lovely . In the evening you also feel really safe as all the windows and patio doors have guards over them that lock as well as the locks inside , the area itself feels really safe anyway it is a really fabulous location as it is very private with no one looking onto you . We had a car which I think you really need , fuengirola is about 10 mins in the car and mijas pueblo village is about 10 mins away too which I recommend you go for dinner it was stunning ! There is take away places about 5 mins away if you don't want to cook too. We did a large shopping and made a few bbqs, we all loved it . The kids have a fabulous time in the pool it was a really great size , it feels a lot bigger when you are actually in it.

Overall this holiday for us was amazing .

I highly recommend this villa .

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane and Mark for the review. After such an bad start to the holiday with the problem with the car hire, it was lovely the holiday turned out so well for you and you enjoyed everything. It was no problem to help sort out the car for you, we are always on call for anything at all. It was such a relief when Pat and Mark went to the airport to get the car! Quite a lot of guests comment on how the villa is a lot bigger than they thought from the photos, maybe I should take some more photos to try and show the villa better. We are so pleased that the villa felt like home and hope to see you all again. Linda

Car: recommended

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.
