Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

First of all I would like to thank owners for such a lovely holiday!

This villa is perfect for summer stay with children. Children can enjoy swimming in the pool and playing in the garden while adults can enjoy spectacular sea view! Villa is situated in private quiet place, but not far from good grocery store, where you can buy all you need. Typical Andalusian villages like Benalmadena Pueblo and Mijas with good restaurants can be reached by car in 15 minutes. Rooms are clean, kitchen well equipped. I will definitely recommend this villa for family stay!

Beautiful Location, Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back from 10 days at Villa Mariposa, and had a fantastic time.

The villa is set in a peaceful location, with beautiful views of the sea. We were lucky enough to pick some lemons and limes off of many of the fruit trees within the garden to help flavour our Sangria! The pool was clean and well maintained by a lovely Spanish man who also tended to the garden. The villa was very clean and tidy, with everything we needed for the perfect holiday.

The process of booking the villa was very simple, the owner was quick to respond to any of our questions and gave us some helpful advice about booking transfers.

The beach isn't too far away, but not walking distance (in my opinion), the roads are quite hilly and windy and not safe to walk on with children, so we used taxis. You can get a bus at the top of the urbanisation to the marina which is quite a pleasant bus ride and very easy to do.

Locally there are not many bars/restaurants, which was fine for us as we Bbq'd at the villa, but if you want to eat out every night then this is a bus ride/taxi ride away!

I would definitely book this villa again and would definitely recommend!

Villa Mariposa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Villa late July 2013, Our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The views are amazing and the area is very quite. You are not overlooked by any neighbours so makes this Villa perfect if you like your privacy. Will definitely be going back at some point. I would not hesitate to recommend this Villa to anybody.

Great little place

  • 4 of 5

All in all a great holiday. I travelled with a group of 8 22-year-olds looking for a quiet villa with plenty of places to travel, and we found it here. Upon our arrival we were greeted by a friendly couple who made sure everything was in order before we unpacked.

The villa, although admittedly smaller than we expected judging by the pictures, contained everything we were hoping for. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen appliances worked without a problem and there was a lot of security (a safe is available to use and the main entrance is guarded by fencing secured with a padlock) - this aspect was stressed to us as we were made very aware of the crime that exists in the area by our greeters. A cleaner also visited every morning to keep the outside of the property in order (gardening maintenance etc), but he did not disturb us at all.

The property is situated at the top of a large slope of woodland, containing many trees and bushes; upon talking to the locals, we discovered this area had become known as 'Death Mountain', although I suspect that name is used in a tongue-in-cheek fashion. Beyond the slope, the view from the villa is wonderful; panoramic views of the sea make for an ideal horizon to gaze upon as the sun is setting.

If you want to get away from the areas which are heavily populated by English people, I suggest taking a short taxi to Mijas, a beautiful little town which immerses you in the Spanish culture with fine buildings, food and dancing. Make sure to ask about 'El Barellious', an important historical figure in the town.

This a very satisfactory holiday. I'd recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and well-equipped villa in Spain. I'd also recommend this place to families with children of all ages.

We had a wonderful holiday,fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Mariposa Villa and yet again we had a lovely holiday.The villa was spacious and comfortable, clean had everything in it we could possibly need, we felt there just like at home. We loved the pool and the beach was just 5 mins by car. What is more Benalmadena down town is beautiful. Brilliant for a nice walk. You can eat cheap and delicious Spanish dinner. Safe and quiet area, drive easy to park 2 cars. Brain and Petra are really friendly and very helpful hosts. We definitely plan to come back there again!! High to recommend!!!

Car: recommended

Villa Mariposa is located in a very favourable position, with easy access to motorway, between Mijas mountain village and Benalmadena Pueblo (village) and Benalmadena world famous marina, cable car and waterparks for children. If you wish to experience panoramic views and surrounds from the mountains, I recommend the cable car. For your enjoyment there is beautiful stretches of sandy beaches from Benalmadena to Fuengirola; many first class golf courses nearby and restaurants to suit everyones taste and budget in beautiful surroundings. If you wish not to drive, Carvajal train station is close to our urbanisation, running regular service to Malaga airport and the city. Also a circular bus is running regularly; Many famous shops and malls close by i.e. El Corte De Engles, La Canada; Marbella and Puerto Banus 20 min drive; 1 hour drive by motorway direct to duty free Gibraltar and further to famous Cadiz where the great battle of Trafalgar took place in 1805.

Other Activities: Flamenco dancing; wine and culinary tasting; sightseeing; castles; art
