About Kate Petrides

I am a doctor specialising in back pain and sports injuries. I have been married for 26 years to Kate who organises the bookings for our villa and we have three teenage children.

Kate Petrides purchased this villa in 2000

Why Kate Petrides chose Coín

Finca Tropical is quiet and secluded for a relaxing holiday, but is only a few minutes away from the shops, bars and cinema in Coin. The views are stunning and the garden is big enough for the famous Finca Olympics which includes events such as Avocado and Spoon racing and tug of war over the swimming pool - losers get a dunking!

What makes this villa unique

Finca Tropical has a large enclosed garden, private pool and outdoor barbecue area. The views are stunning and the town is very pretty and traditional with lots of tapas bars. There is a Fiesta every August with parades and outdoor bars and everyone parading around in their traditional Spanish costume.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for letting us stay at the villa. We loved it!

Only the weather made the stay anything less than perfect. Pool each day, several breakfasts on the patio and on the rainy nights cosey meals indoors. Barbeque brilliant. Views magnificent. Six adults no arguments due to spacious accommodation.

Thank you

I am glad you had such a relaxing holiday, that is what Finca Tropical does best! I hope very much you come back to visit again as you mentioned you would like to! Thanks again Kate

A good holiday get-away

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for Xmas - to 'get away from it all'. It did the trick perfectly. What was good?

The location, the furniture and fittings, the garden, the table tennis table (and I'm sure the pool is super in better weather - we hit a coldish spell for Andalusia), the local 'carers' and the personal contact to the owner. Convenient distance from Malaga Airport, good for other sightseeing, too. W-Lan and British TV!

I'm sure it is completely different in the summer, but Andalusia at Xmas is lovely with all the citrus fruits on the trees, and Coin was a riot at New Year's Eve!

Less good - the electricity and water supplies. The beds.

But all in all, we were very happy with our choice of Finca - despite slightly below-average weather. Many thanks to the owners! All information provided is accurate and correct.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that clients find this a relaxing holiday even in the winter. The electrics and water issues are being repaired as we write this. You wont believe the views and the quiet! From the owners of Finca Tropical and Villa Maria

Our stay was great. The spot is lovely (views!) and the location perfect; you can reach everything easily by car. Very good possibilities for hikes in the mountains. The house is very nice, for good and bad weather. The heated pool is great! One little downside is that the fourth bedroom can only reached from outside the house. For some things in the house (e.g. electricity, pool heating) we needed some help, which was provided immediately; The service was perfect. This gave a very good feeling.

So, excellent holiday, very recommendable!

Me encanta esta casa!

  • 5 of 5

Alquilé esta propiedad en nochevieja de 2009, a amigos y a mí nos gustó tanto que la volvimos ha alquilar en nochevieja de 2010. Esta casa me encanta por que aparte de tener capacidad para muchas personas es muy acogedora y Karen y su marido son muy buenos y agradables con los huespedes siempre atentos de que no falte de nada. La distribución de la casa me gusta y la pequeña habitación fuera de la casa es muy bonita te sientes como en casa aparte la casa tiene juegos y en el porche una canasta lo cual, no da pie a aburrirse. La piscina esperamos probarla este año que ya estamos pensando en alquilarla para verano aunque hay que darse prisa pues esta muy solicitada. Lo pasamos tan bien en nuestra estancia allí que pensamos repetir siempre que podamos.

Coin is an attractive, unspoilt Andalusian 'white' town about 25 minutes drive inland from the coast. It has all amenities including a good variety of shops, bars, restaurants etc., and a large hypermarket. The villa enjoys a semi rural location peacefully located on a hillside about 5 minutes by car, out of town. Finca Tropical is 25 minutes drive from Puerto Banus, Marbella and the sea. There is a small local shop for every day essentials about 15 minutes stroll from the Villa. Clay pigeon shooting, horse riding/trekking, rifle shooting, quad bikes, go-karting, cycling, wolf park, fishing, beautiful walks and nearby lakes, tennis/country club are all activities to be found within easy reach of the villa. Finca Tropical is located in a peaceful, semi-rural position well away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Wonderfully safe for children.

Other Activities: A concrete area by the villa is ideal for rollerblading, remote control cars, ball games, etc

Golf: The nearest golf courses are Alhaurin Golf and Lauro Golf, both within 15 mins drive. There are literally dozens of other golf courses within 30 mins to one hour's drive, to suit all standards.
