Very comfortable villa and great pool

  • 5 of 5

We booked out stay at the villa blind as it did not have any reviews. But we liked the look of it and someone has to be first. Then a couple of weeks before our trip someone did review the villa. We were not put off, by a couple of the comments and were looking forward to our holiday.

On our day of arrival, we had arranged to meet James at the villa at lunchtime. We didnt have too much trouble finding El Nido,the road is a bit bumpy but that's to be expected being up in the hills. The villa has everything you could need and is very clean and comfortable. The pool and patio was lovely, all enclosed by flowers and palm trees and the sun shining down on it all day. The outside eating area was perfectly shaded and lovely and cool. The previous review mentioned dogs barking. We did hear them but was not woken or put off by them, You are in the country and surrounded by woodland, would much prefer that than people shouting.

You can walk into town from the villa but it's quite a walk, (about 25 minutes)but if your feeling energetic, why not.

We visited many of the surrounding towns but found Mijas the most beautiful.

We had a lovely stay, James and Connie are lovely and are very accommodating.

PS ... Do not touch the buttons on the device,(on the cabinet) in the main bedroom, is not anything to do with the TV,............ it's an SOS...... and does work.....Thanks James for the late night call. Sorry😘

Gorgeous Finca

  • 4 of 5

Booking was easy and it was very reasonably priced. Connie was fantastic and met us when we got a bit lost and gave us loads of info on the area, which you can tell she really loves.

The Finca was really great, with the best garden furniture of any Villa we have rented anywhere. Pool was still a bit cold in May so we didn't really use it, but good size and very clean.

Inside was well designed with nice little perks like a heated floor in the bathroom, big fridge freezer and pool towels supplied. Would highly recommend the Tapas restaurants in nearby Mijas especially Tomillo Limon.

There are however three things which disappointed and that is why only 4 stars. 1st is the road up to the finca, it's pretty bad, it would have been nice to have been warned when we booked so we could have booked a 4x4 instead of spending the week crawling up and down it scraping the underside of the hire car. 2nd The barking dogs, I think there's either a breeder or a kennel just across from the Finca, and they howl and bark, on and of, throughout the day and night, so not really the tranquil setting we expected. 3rd and final was the hot water, showering was far from pleasant in both showers, you get about 90 seconds of hot water then it goes cold for 2 to 3 minutes, repeating over and over and if you have long hair it's quite a feat rinsing it.

Would we recommend the Finca?? If you hire a 4x4, take earplugs, for the odd canine cacophony, and go when the weather is hot enough to want cold showers ...then yes, it is fab value and the pool area really is gorgeous.

Owner's Response: Hi Penny, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are so delighted that you enjoyed your stay. It is a beautiful finca and as you said, very reasonably priced. The owner of this property has furnished the house nicely putting great thought into making it a comfortable and relaxing space for guests to enjoy. I have to agree with you, the garden and pool area is perfect. It is a shame that you didn't bring the problem with the showers to our attention, we were completely unaware of it. The next guests informed us so it has now been sorted. As regards your comments on the road and dogs barking, I am afraid there is very little that we can do about these. The rains in Spain can create pot holes in sections of the roads during the Spring time. Normally, the road authorities have them repaired before the tourist season starts but we have no control over when this happens. In the same way that there are disadvantages to city living such as noisy traffic and crowds, there are some disadvantages to rural living such as dogs barking and rural roads not maintained as well as roads in populated areas. I hope these inconveniences didn't mar your overall experience of holidaying in the Spanish countryside. It was lovely to meet you all. Best wishes, Connie

El Nido is in the most enviable location, looking down on the town of Alhaurin El Grande. This town is one of the most picturesque whitewashed Spanish pueblos in the Guadalhorce Valley. It is made up of an old and new part. All the services you might require are here with many shops, restaurants, banks, pharmacies, etc. There is also a medical centre on hand if required. A local market is held every Thursday.

Alhaurin Golf and Lauro Golf courses are just a short drive. Other local activities include horse riding, cycling, walking, mountain biking.

In Coin, about 7 minutes drive away, you will find a shopping centre that houses a multiplex cinema and a bowling alley. The coast is just a 20 minute drive away and Marbella is only 25 minutes away boasting a large shopping centre - La Canada, a must for all you shopaholics.

To get the most out of your stay, we recommend you hire a car. Malaga airport is just a 25 minute drive.
