Great location, but sub-par property
Firstly the positives are that this property is the most ideal location possible, with fantastic views, and a lovely swimming pool. Inside however, we were really disappointed, starting with the bathroom which promised a bath - this turned out to be cracked, and the taps sealed up (although not the drain I suspect as this bathroom had a really nasty smell even with the window open 24h). We didn't really get anyone managing the property down throughout our stay. The washing machine was leaky, the pans in the kitchen were stained or rusty. There was little to no information about bins and recycling - there was not even a bin bag provided in the kitchen for use.
The real problem with the villa was that it had the promise and potential to be fantastic, but the whole place just ended up feeling unloved. Ants managed to have control of the place due to gone or damaged seals around doors/floors, and really to make it a top knotch accommodation just needs lots of little things (but as a guest these little things all add up and disappoint).
I am sorry that you have found so many negative aspects about our property but fortunately you are the only one during all the years we have been renting.
First of all, all the guests are made welcome by our friend Madeleine who only lives 200 m from us and she makes sure that all the guests are informed about the rubbish collection, water and pool rules. If you didn't want to walk up to her house you could still have contacted her by mail or phone! During our clients' stay we have a gardener who looks after the garden and makes sure the pool is always clean. In general we try to solve all the problems as quickly as possible if and when the clients communicate with us.
The washing machine was not leaky (nobody else noticed it), all the kitchen utensils were renewed in May.
The only remark we admit to is the broken bath. Unfortunately one of the clients made a whole in the bath tub so we had to close it. However considering that there are altogether three showers and the outside temperature was about 30 C, we wonder if the bath tub made such a difference. Anyway October 2017 we have completely rebuilt the whole bathroom as you can see on the photos.
As to ants I am not surprised that you had an invasion. I don't think we have ever had a villa left so dirty as after your stay !!!!
We stayed at casa million in September and really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this lovely part of Spain. The villa was spacious and clean and had everything you would need for an enjoyable holiday. There are lovely views from the terrace and you can see the sea in the distance. There are no local bars or restaurants within walking distance but this suited us fine as we really wanted a "get away from it all" holiday. There are some supermarkets about 15 minutes away by car, so you can stock up on provisions easily. Pool and gardens are pretty and were cleaned while we were there. You are in the countryside but we didn't have any problem with Mosquitos - just plenty of docile wasps - so we ate lunch inside - evenings however were fine.All in all a great relaxing stay and we intend to return.
A wonderful holiday
We spent two weeks in September in this lovely villa. The weather was amazing, better than we had anticipated. The villa was the perfect setting, not far from Velez-Malaga but far enough out to be secluded. We visited the Alhambra, always worth a visit, the beaches, lots of the white villages and generally trundled around. The villa was the perfect place to return to, comfortable and well equipped. On those days we decided to chill, the pool and terraces were perfect. My only advice would be to watch out for the mozzies in the evenings. We are hoping to book again and I would recommend the villa without reservation
This is an amazing villa, with pool, a large terrace with stunning views, very functional and clean with absolutely everything you need for your holiday. Located close to Velez-Malaga with a short drive to the beach and great base for touring.
Schönes Ferienhaus in einsamer Lage
Nach anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten (Heizung) rundum persönlich schöner Urlaub.
Un bijou Casa Mio
Casa Mio nous a donné un temps merveilleux et relaxant. Belle, promenades quotidiennes dans les montagnes ont renforcé notre expérience de la nature et de notre condition physique. La maison a une cuisine top moderne où vous pouvez manger le petit déjeuner à l'îlot de cuisine et admirer la vue magnifique. De la terrasse nous pouvions voir la mer et par temps clair, même les montagnes de l'Atlas au Maroc. La promenade dans les environs de Torre del Mar, où de merveilleux restaurants de poissons portion fraîchement cuisinés poisson est une expérience fantastique. Alhambra et Grenade est devenu une visite très appréciée. Camino del Rey est situé à environ 1,5 heures de route de Casa Mio a été le clou du séjour. L'hôtesse Madeleine nous a donné super service et accueil chaleureux. Nous avons déjà le désir de retour à cet endroit merveilleux.
