Now in its 9th year on the Homeaway site, this exceptional villa is popular with families and groups and has many repeat guests. Casa Los Mosaicos is
situated in the hills behind the Costa del Sol less than half an hour from Marbella, beaches and Malaga Airport and 10 minutes from Alhaurin Golf. With stunning views of the surrounding countryside, the villa is a tranquil oasis amongst the olive groves with its colourful mosaics, beautiful new pool and palm lined garden. Inside it is stylishly furnished complimenting the villa's modern yet rustic design with its double height lounge and five ensuite bedrooms. It also benefits from air con in 2 rooms, wifi, internet TV and surround sound DVD. Outside there are four terraces, a barbecue area and table tennis. It is 5 minutes from two lively towns - Alhaurin and Coin both with bars and great restaurants and is within easy reach of historic Ronda, the El Chorro Gorge, Malaga and Marbella with its shopping and beaches.
There were ten of us in our group, from ages seven to adult, and we all had a wonderful time. Both the owners and their local caretaker were very obliging.
The villa has been well equipped, and was spotlessly clean. It has plenty of space and facilities including a lovely deep pool, and is in a very peaceful rural location with fantastic views; yet at the same time it is only a short drive from the nearby towns' shops and bars. Certainly recommended.
Two families had loads of room to hang out. Great communal eating area out front. You will have to fight over the master bedroom!
Amazing living room/lounge area - huge. Palm trees really add something - bit of shade now and then and just looks great.
What we loved was the feel of a remote location while being just mins from Coin and Alhaurin - we also walked to and from the local restaurant up the road. Handy for all the costas too.
This villa is excellent, we were in a group of 10 - age ranges mid 20's-mid 30's.
Had everything we needed, large garden, good pool, great area for sitting out and good location in between two small towns and half hour drive to Marbella.
The owner is very easy to deal with and is easily contactable.
While staying here the caretaker Steve was extremely helpful, he has a vast local knowledge and without him out our stay wouldn't have been quite so smooth so this is another huge plus.
The only reason that as a group we rated this 4/5 was the lack of air con in some rooms but this certainly didn't spoil our time but was worth mentioning as those in our group in these rooms did find it tough at night but must be said it was 40 degrees several days.
Overall I would recommend this villa to anybody as the overall experience was well worth the money we paid.
We stayed at the villa for a family holiday of 2 weeks, along with our two toddlers. The house and garden were great for both kids and adults - lots of space, very easy to settle into, opportunity for sun and shade, choices of whether to eat inside or outside, kitchen vs BBQ etc. We had expected to spend our time at the villa, but quickly realised how close we were to so many things to do, from Malaga to Marbella, from Ojen to Mijas...and even the stunning mountain drive to Ronda felt much easier and closer than expected.
This property did not disappoint. It was a beautifully maintained villa, clean, picturesque, quiet and peaceful area and most importantly a pool that we used frequently. Our other fear was that this villa was far away from any major cities to visit but we managed to drive to Marbella (30 Mins) and Malaga (40mins) without too much difficulty and found the drive to both places quite simple, and pleasant.
Overall I would say that this villa has all you need if you are looking for a nice peaceful and relaxing holiday. It was amazing to have breakfast and dinner on the terrace with such beautiful views... it was a joy. We will miss the villa very much and hope that one day we can return and experience it all over again.
Lastly we would like to thank Steve (the property manager) who was very helpful on our arrival and gave us great tips about restaurants and places to visit and when we had a problem with the internet, he came immediately and was solved within a couple of hours. Legend!
We were a party of 10 adults and had a lovely, relaxing stay. The villa had everything that we needed, including a nice, large fridge and plenty of crockery, cutlery etc. The only comment that I feel I must make is that the tiles on and around the veranda are very slippery when wet - my son slipped down the steps and hurt his back.
Casa Los Mosaicos is situated between Alhaurin el Grande & Coin. Alhaurin is full of bars and restaurants and is a vibrant Spanish town. Coin has a brand new mall with a supermarket, restaurants and a cinema complex. There are also numerous country restaurants to discover. The Casa is approached by unmade roads and has a commanding view of the surrounding countryside. It is the best of both worlds, giving you the feeling of seclusion and tranquility, whilst being within easy reach of all the facilities you could want to make a perfect holiday - be it beaches, golf, shopping, historic towns, pueblo blancos or the great outdoors.
Golf: Casa Los Mosaicos is in the heart of golf country. Alhaurin Golf is less than ten minutes away with its Seve Ballesteros designed course and country club facilities including swimming pool, tennis courts and equestrian club. The picturesque white village of Mijas is just a little further away, with the choice of Mijas Golf and La Cala Golf home to the prestigious David Leadbetter Golf Academy. Miraflores Golf, Torrequabrada, Parador del Golf and Cabopino are also all in striking distance. Guests can improve their technique with the help of an exclusive Ernie Els Golf Clinic DVD available at the Casa. Casa Los Mosaicos is perfect for parties who want to enjoy a golfing holiday or for families who want to get the most out of the Costa and play some golf too.
