Overview

About the property

Holiday lets, flexible booking,

You will be very comfortable in Casa Cuatro at Lauro Golf.

It is a modern, spacious Spanish townhouse on four floors. It is built to a very high standard with full air conditioning (heating and cooling); marble floors; marble worktops; double glazing; burglar alarm, fully fitted kitchen with modern appliances. It has everything you need for a short break, a holiday to a maximum of 2 months!

It has two en-suite bedrooms, it sleeps four in great comfort and there are comfortable sleeping arrangements for two more persons in the Torreon (tower room). It has a large lounge dining area with a 47 inch (119 cm) flat screen TV which receives 90 TV channels and 16 Radio stations that British people are familiar with. It has a DVD player and a good selection of DVDs.

The lounge leads through to the patio and on to the garden which adjoins the golf course.

Please email me for golf course and aerial photographs and my 19 page ‘Introduction to Spanish’. It’s always appreciated when you speak some Spanish; this will get you through most situations.

ASSURED OF A COMFORTABLE STAY IN A SPECIAL PLACE

The accommodation is freshly prepared for your arrival. The welcome pack emailed to you includes directions from the airport and some Spanish driving tips. Our key holders will meet you at the property; give you your keys, make sure you get in safely, show you how to use the alarm system and answer any queries.

Casa Cuatro appeals to everyone who likes to experience the fascinating, real Spain and not just the coastal strip promoted by tour companies. This is ‘front-line golf’ living in a countryside setting with all the amenities at hand. The clubhouse – 200 years old and with plenty of history – is a sunny Spanish patio for alfresco dining. It is open to non-golfers from early morning to early evening and provides a good selection of tapas and bar meals.

BAR LA RISA – just walk past the clubhouse, this English-run bar welcomes children and has food and drink throughout the day, quiz nights, curry nights, happy hour.

A SPECIAL PLACE TO EXPLORE A FASCINATING AREA

The Guadalhorce Valley, a rural area of outstanding beauty, is the main area for tourism and leisure in Andalucía. Its towns and villages faithfully preserve the old traditions, such as the Carnival and Semana Santa (Easter), in a characteristic setting of whitewashed houses.

LOCAL ACTIVITIES

Lauro Equestrian Centre, clay pigeon shooting, cycling, Sea World, Tivoli World Fun Park, Benalmádena Marina and Crocodile Park.

SHOPPING

If shopping is your thing then there’s a huge selection: Marbella, Puerto Banús, La Cañada, La Trocha, and Plaza Mayor all within easy commuting distance.

EATING OUT

There is a huge variety of restaurants in the local area offering Spanish, Chinese, German, Indian cuisine.

The local ventas (restaurants) offer a menu of the day for 6€ which includes a bottle of wine for the table! Have lunch about 1.30 pm and enjoy the excitement of a Spanish lunchtime.

At Casa Cuatro you’ll be in the beautiful Spanish countryside and you don’t need to be a golfer to appreciate the immediate surroundings either.

Our welcome pack has a list of local restaurants. If you would like to have a copy please request a welcome pack through this website.

We keep a visitors book at Casa Cuatro; you can see their comments reproduced exactly here in the reviews section.

We are a 5 star rated property and holiday experience.

Why David Jones chose Malaga area (Costa del Sol)

We believe we have the ideal property for families and friends wanting to rent a house for a holiday. We have 2 comfortable sized bedrooms, both en-suite, and our licence permits us to have 6 guests in total because we have another room for 2 more persons. Take a look at our reviews and you will see how comfortable our guests have been. The house is a short walk to the facilities of the Lauro 27 Resort, so it’s ideally placed, too. Winters can be chilly at night and summers can be hot. We have full air conditioning in the lounge, dining room and in both bedrooms. We have ceiling fans in both bedrooms too, so despite the heat in high summer you'll still be able to sleep at night. For the winter we have a log-burning fire to keep you warm. It's a modern fire with an automatic sensor and fan to blow clean warm air into the lounge. We provide olive logs for our winter guests. If you've lit the fire and you go outside you'll be able to appreciate the wonderful smell of the olive wood burning; but not in the house as all the smoke goes up the chimney. Relaxing is the aim of most of our guests and we have a 3 burner gas BBQ so you can spend as much time outdoors as you like. If you're a golfer, the short walk to the practice green, driving range, clubhouse and first tee will be appreciated. Lauro Golf is an exceptionally well maintained course open all year round and it can reach 22 degrees Centigrade in January so that's very welcome if you live in Northern Europe. If you're not a golfer there's so much more to do and see and at Casa Cuatro you'll be very well placed to see it.

What makes this house unique

Stay here and you'll be inside the quiet seclusion of a premier Golf Course with no through traffic. That is what the residents of Urbanización Lauro Golf and our guests value most. And yet you're a 3 minute walk to a choice of 2 Bar Restaurants, the golf clubhouse, padel tennis and a bus stop. In 10 minutes you can be in one of 2 towns with all the amenities of modern life. In 25 minutes you can be on the beach and experience the Chirringitos (fish restaurants) unique to this part of the world. To venture further afield the nearest motorway connection is 12 minutes away and it's a similar distance to the nearest railway station which will take you the short journey to Málaga and then you can explore much further afield with Spain's impressive AVE high speed trains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Spoilt for choice of patios, with its welcome cool marble floors make this a luxurious retreat. Love the mountain views contrasting with the gentle ‘clunks’ from the golf course. It’s really very comfortable indeed – you seem to have thought of everything! Oh, perhaps a bin upstairs.”

Owner's Response: Stuart, Janet, thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. You have summarised very succinctly exactly what is special about Lauro Golf and we’re sure this will be a great help to future visitors. Yes, the pool is still a great attraction and the refurbishment of the clubhouse this year has really made a huge difference and without spoiling its character. We’re glad you and your family had a good time and you’ll be very welcome to return. Best wishes, David and Jackie

A lovely house in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

A delightful house in a very pleasant setting. It really did feel like somebody's home. It was well equipped, comfortable and the view from the back terrace was idyllic. We particularly liked the serene setting here with a glass of chilled fizz and the BBQ in the warm sunshine. If you are looking for a really comfortable house outside Malaga then I could recommend Casa Cuatro unreservedly.

Wonderful spacious house with mountain view

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our vacation at the Lauro Golf resort. This was our second trip to a town house rental at a golf course in Spain. We liked everything about the house. A nice view of the mountains from the upper floor. A quiet garden terrace next to the living room. TV, air condition, and appliances were all of great standard and simple to maintain. The rooms are large, homely and well maintained. Our children loved their bedroom and were surprised to have their own bathroom. In Sweden, the bathrooms are separated from bedrooms and placed in hallways. The only "smudge" we had all week was the pool in the common area. It turned green one day. Other than that we had an absolutely lovely stay.

Great and refreshing time

  • 5 of 5

we really enjoyed the house, the calm sourrounding, the swimming pool close by, the BBQ...

We loved the whole region, the nice white villages, the beaches, the food, Ronda, Gibraltar...

We also appreciated John and Suzan, the way they welcomed us and how they were available one day we had problems with one of the shutters.

Our kids want to come back ;-)

Yes, we are very fortunate to have such a wonderful arrangement and we’re glad we can share it with a nice family like yours who appreciate it as much as you do. We’re also pleased that your 6 week visit to Spain was productive and we’re sure you will have good memories of Casa Cuatro and the Costa del Sol. Please grant your children their wish and come again soon. Many thanks and best wishes, David and Jackie

THE URBANISATION

Lauro Golf is a very attractive and safe urbanisation INSIDE a golf course in the Spanish countryside off the main road with no through traffic.

It is ideal for those who like to rest on holiday in a tranquil location with the assurance of good weather and yet have easy access to mountains, beaches and shopping.

THE HOUSE

Casa Cuatro overlooks the first tee, the pitching and putting green and the Clubhouse. From the solarium and the master bedroom there are stunning views down the first fairway and across to the Sierra de Mijas.

From the second bedroom and the terrace you look across the wide Avenida, the fifth fairway and down to the Guadalhorce Valley. In the distance you can see the Sierra Nevada (snow covered in winter), the bay of Málaga and the airport.

LOCAL AMENITIES

It is a ten minute drive to supermarkets, post office, bars, restaurants, shops, banks, doctor, dentist and all the facilities and services you would expect from a modern European town.

GOLF:

LAURO GOLF is a highly rated 27-hole golf course; this is what makes it special:

• Lauro Golf is a parkland style course with breathtaking views.

• It receives a very high level of maintenance and is always in top condition.

• It has nine lakes, some challenging holes and numerous almond, olive, orange and a few pomegranate trees.

• Open all year round.

• English speaking.

• Driving Range, pitching and putting green.

• Golf School gives individual and group lessons.

• Open to non-members.

• Soft spikes please.

• Pro Shop hires every conceivable type of equipment for golfers – clubs, buggies, trolleys etc.

LAURO 27 RESORT facilities include:

Padel tenis (paddle tennis).

Swimming pool.

Lawn Bowls

Clubhouse open to everyone, serving food and drink all day until evening.

Pub/Restaurant - an English run pub serving food and drinks all day.

SKI

The Sierra Nevada is a top class ski resort with first rate facilities and warmer air temperatures than other resorts. It has hosted numerous international ski events. With a season from the end of November until April, the Sierra Nevada accommodates skiers of all abilities, with plenty of beginners’ slopes through to extremely testing black runs. The ski station is a two hour drive on the A-7 and A-44 motorways; follow Granada and then 'Estación de Ski'. There are two principal areas: Borreguiles has the ski schools, cable car stations and main ski lifts; Pradollano is the ski village, with hotels, restaurants and shops. There is an active nightlife in the resort, from small intimate tapas bars to larger, international restaurants, catering for all budgets and culinary tastes. It’s worth visiting the attractions in Granada city.
