Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly as stated. Private quiet all the equipment and facilities you would have at home. Brian was great with quick responses to any emails or queries. Our party was a family group of 4 adults and 3 children we had plenty of space and room. Shops were only 5 mins way. I would say you will need a car to get the best use of this villa. We loved it and hope to return soon.

Stunning views and very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as shown on the website, or even better! Entering your private garden, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, two massive palmtrees, lemon trees, it all looked beautiful in quiet surroundings.

Just a jump in the pool, or a steak on the barbecue, everyday we have enjoyed the house and its garden.

The house is cosy and well equipped. Easily accessible, no difficult mountain roads and supermarkets only 5 minutes away from the house. We will be back soon, thank you very much for sharing this great place Brian and Petra!

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.

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
