Beautiful house. Nice swimmingpool. View was magnificent . Shower first floor wasn’t working well.
I can recommand this house.
Hi harry, Thanks for your feedback and nice words. .Happy that you enjoyed your stay. True the views are fantastic!
Let us know if you wish to repeat your visit.
Best regards, Maria, Jose.
Superb hilltop house with pool and spectacular views!.
We booked 10 days as a family of 5 in early October 2019 and, in case the weather was chilly, we requested the pool to be heated (extra cost). However, it was not really needed as the weather was fantastic, as was the pool and the rest of the house. There are 4 bedrooms, kitchen, pantry, and a lounge/diner with both an open fireplace and a wood pellet stove (needless to say we needed none of these!). The main bedroom is downstairs, as is a bathroom, and is therefore suitable for less-abled folk. The outside BBQ was used most days, and there were more than enough sun loungers for all of us. There is a large patio to the front and side, all on the same level, including around the pool, with sufficient furniture to sit in the sun or shade. The upstairs terrace would benefit from some furniture!. The concrete drive up to the house from the road is very steep, but easily do-able in any car in 1st gear!.
The house location is just about perfect, being south-facing and getting the sun on the patio all day from sunrise 'til sunset. It is some 5 mins drive to Comares, and Benamargosa is 20 mins away. We did our main shopping in Velez-Malaga (30 mins) where there is a wide selection of shops and restaurants, and the beach at Torre del Mar is a further 5 mins away. However, we preferred to stay in the mountains, and the views from the house are just spectacular. We drove further up the mountains on several days and visited some lovely restaurants, where the views are amazing.
We walked down to the nearby El Molino bar/restaurant several times and, although the menu and food looked good, we chose to cook on our own BBQ!. They had music there one or two nights a week when we were there. The other restaurant next to El Molino is Table Mountain, which is re-opening in early November 2019 after being refurbished. This will be a Steak House, bar, shop, and Ice Cream parlour!. Additionally, there are a number of good restaurants in Comares and Benamargosa.
If you are looking for an active nightlife and bars-aplenty then this is not for you!. If you want peace, quiet, friendly locals, spectacular views, and enjoy listening to the tinkling bells of goats across the valley (and the wayward rooster who prefers to crow in the afternoon!) then this is paradise.
The host Jose met us on arrival, and Maria was very helpful with excellent communications during our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Ventorros, and hope to return soon. Highly recommended.
Wow! what a comprehensive and heartfelt review! thanks Martin.
Very happy you all enjoyed your stay and experienced the local life and visited other places too. That is correct, the Table Mountain restaurant will be re opening its doors soon.
October is still surprisingly warm, very pleasant in fact.
Do let us know if you wish to come back please.
All the best
A lovely hill top villa.
A lovely property, I would have given it 5stars had it had air conditioning, though fans were provided.
Hi Sharon, thank you for having stayed at this house and for your comments . Hope you repeat your visit one day!
Away from it all
The first drive up the mountain is quite spectacular - a little hairy at times but you soon get used to it.
The Villa is spot on - very clean and the pool just the right size. Very much a place to go and chill-out away from the masses, the local bar is basic but very welcoming with simple but decent food.
Comares is an easy drive and we found it pretty easy to park, Torre del Mar is the nearest beach about 45mins away which has some nice beach restaurants and certainly the end of the beach we went was 95% Spanish.
The Villa had everything we needed - there isn't any aircon but by keeping the shutters shut during the day it stayed cool enough. WiFi was a little sketchy but the 4G signal was pretty decent.
All in all, had a fantastic holiday
Thank you Henry for this well composed appreciation, very happy you enjoyed your stay and thanks again for taking the time to write with details about your experience. We are always trying to improve with new ideas, etc to make the guest s stay memorable. Do please let us know if you wish to come back one day. Best regards, Maria for Jose.
Amazing views and peaceful villa.
We had a great time staying at the villa, there was 7 of us 2 separate families plenty of space.
The pool was great which we had heated as we stayed the first 10 days in June. The kids swam pretty much everyday so made the most of it.
The views are stunning after you get used to the drive up the mountains!
Weather was fantastic while we were there.
Comares is a lovely rural village where you can get bits and pieces at the local shop. We found going to velez Malaga to the bigger shops was easier for stocking up with food. Really nice restaurant in the village serving great food at very good prices, it was called Mirador de la Axarquia.
Villa was very clean and tidy when we arrived.
Great communication between Jose and Maria, Jose came and sorted any little problems we had.
Only thing I would note would be a guide to washing machine temperature as we had to guess a bit.
We have also let them know there are a few loose tiles on the steps into the swimming pool which were a bit sharp.
Overall we had a really lovely stay and would highly recommend it.
Missing being there already!
Thank you for taking the time to write such a positive and extensive review. Very happy you found everything to your liking at the villa and you and the kids enjoyed the house and pool and visited Comares..
Thank you for your feedback. All taken on board. Please do let us know i you wish to repeat your visit!
All the best! Maria and Jose
Review 17-09-18 to 219-09-18
The four of us arrived back on the 29-09-18 after having a fabulous holiday at the villa.
The villa was very clean and the views were outstanding and we would not hesitate to use again.
There are a couple of things that we feel could be improved. The main outside furniture is getting old and rickety and could do with replacing. Cushions on the Rattan furniture would have also been nice and maybe some outside furniture in the upstairs bedroom that leads out onto the terrace would also have been nice to enable you to sit and take in the views and watch the glorious sunrises.
There are only 2 mirrors in the villa and feel one in each bedroom would have been better.
The trampoline over the car port area has still not been replaced which does not give the best first impression of the property.
We had enough towels to use for inside and out but guess if there were more people staying this could be a bit short.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa if you want a lovely peaceful surrounding then this is the place for you, and if you don't mind the 30 to 40 minutes drive to Malaga or Torro Del Mar.
The pool was lovely and we did have it heated and was used every day.
The only drawback we had was in the evening when sitting outside we were plagued a bit by big hornets which is not ideal but of nobody's doing.
Jose was more than helpful and checked a couple of times to make sure we were all ok and to see if we required anything.
Thank you Sarah for your comprehensive review. Happy that you all enjoyed your stay and made the most of the heated pool Suggestions are always welcome and we have revamped the villa as we do each season, with new furniture, extras, etc.
Do let us know if you wish to come back. Regards, Jose, Maria.
