In the mature garden there are various tropical shrubs and plants which amazingly release their perfume at night .

The bar and BBQ are the ideal entertainment hub with lighting and an additional fridge there is also an additional gas BBQ for those who prefer this method of cooking or to cater for large groups.

Why Annabel chose Mijas

Villa Carlito is ideally situated in a beautiful quiet area but so near Mijas Pueblo and Fuengirola . Once at the villa you will immediately relax and feel at home . The villa is not over looked and set in a mature garden so if you are sun bathing ,having a swim ,cooking your BBQ or just letting the children run off steam your privacy is assured .

We liked this villa as we have the best of both worlds . Traditional Spanish life in Mijas village with great restaurants one of our lunchtime favourites is a little Spanish restaurant serving home cooked food a

Their 3 course amazing menu is €7.50 well worth a visit .

Similarly there are fantastic restaurants in Fuengirola which stay open to the small hours of the morning .

We have collated a selection of places that we think you may enjoy the information is in the villa guest book .

What makes this villa unique

Villa Carlito has a non over looked private pool and garden and is set in a beautiful area with mountain views yet so close to all amenities making an ideal holiday home for all age groups .

Pool Heating: we offer to heat the pool for you at a non profit charge £120 per week. The water is lovely and warm ideal if you enjoy an early morning swim or as the pool has lighting , a late night dip swimming under the stars . Bliss .

Car rental is not essential as there is a bus stop nearby which runs up to Mijas village and down to Fuengirola . There are also ample taxi's nearby which are regulated and charge reasonably.

Mijas Village is a beautiful white washed traditional village with wonderful restaurant and bars also great shopping .

Family and friends holiday

  • 4 of 5

I contacted Anabel several times before and after booking to ask a few questions about the villa and the local amenities. Anabel was always quick and positive with her responses. The villa was perfectly placed for us as we tend not to need much on our doorstep. There is a good bus service at the end of the road which we used on a couple of occasions to pop into Fuengirola. There is also a Lidl and an Aldi on the bus route which are on the outskirts of Fuengirola. The villa has a lovely pool, plenty of sunbeds and shade and a great gas BBQ as well as a large table and chairs for dining out. Sally, the property manager is on hand and she certainly went above and beyond to ensure we had a good holiday. Thank you. We would recommend this to families/friends who are looking for a relaxing holiday.

Brilliant villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

A spacious and extremely well equipped villa located in the perfect place to enjoy both the beach and the stunning mountain views from Mijas. The pool was stunning and well worth the additional cost of heating as it ensured we had comfort and warmth in the pool whatever the outside temperature. We had plenty of space both outdoors and indoors for a family holiday with 7 adults, a 3 year old and a baby. Owner and property manager were really accommodating and couldn’t have more helpful or welcoming. The villa made our family holiday something special. Would love to go back again!

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from seven relaxing days in this beautiful villa. Everything was perfect - the pool was warm, the beds comfortable, very clean and well stocked with essentials and the facilities were excellent. We loved the quiet location but central position of the villa for visits to Mijas and the Fuengirola. Thank you to Annabel and especially thank you to Steve for his excellent directions and for a warm welcome. We are already looking forward to a second visit!

Perfect for a lovely family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from my stay in Mijas at the villa and we had an amazing time. The villa is lovely and spacious and has absolutely everything. It's also very secure and very private. Mijas is a beautiful location and there is so much to do closeby. We had a car but my brother didn't so his family used the bus which was so easy and cheap to get around (even with a 2 year old!). Annabel and Steve were amazing and made my first family holiday with my 5 month old so easy, they couldn't have been more helpful. Steve was on hand for an issues (just us not being able to work stuff, no actual problems!) and was always round to help within literally 5 mins- he was amazing! Highly recommend this!

Owner's Response: Hi there Sophia , thank you ever so much for writing such a lovely review it really means a lot to Steve and I . We are so glad that you managed to relax and have a good time particularly as it was your first holiday with new baby as I know it's a big step traveling with a new baby so far away from home. I hope you and your lovely family will regard Villa Carlito your own home in the sun. We would love to see you back again and there will be a warm welcome for you all. Keep in touch Best wishes from Annabel and Steve

Great property, loved it...

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property... we loved the seclusion of the property yet found it totally accessible by bus/taxi to travel either up to Mijas or down to Fuengirola.

The property is very well equipped, especially the kitchen/BBQ area. The owner & on site property manager were both great to deal with & ensured we had a wonderful stay. We hope to return to the villa for future holidays.

Fantastic stay at Villa Carlito - thank you Annabel and Steve!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Villa Carlito – it was just the right size for us (4 adults and 6 children including 2 infants). Annabel was such a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to our stay and couldn’t have been more helpful with our various requirements(!). Steve was also on hand to help with anything during our stay so we were well looked after. The kids spent most of the week in the pool and the pool gate was a godsend for the little ones! We cooked most days and the villa is very well equipped in terms of cooking utensils, towels etc.

We hired two cars and although we spent most of our time at the villa with a couple of excursions to the beach in Fuengirola, and an evening out in Mijas. We had a lovely meal at the Secret Garden in Mijas (Argentinian Barbeque recommended!) and there were enough shady spots for the kids. We ate at Valparaiso on the last evening as we wanted somewhere within walking distance of the villa, and although the setting is lovely with great views, we didn’t think it was very good value for money and were surprised by the very large bill!

We had a brilliant holiday and would not hesitate to recommend the villa and the lovely Annabel and Steve to anyone looking for a break close to Mijas/Fuengirola.

Thanks very much Annabel and Steve!
