About the property

Villa Rocio 2 in Benajarafe, Nr. Torre del Mar, Costa del Sol - Small Seaside Town, 1 Minutes Walk to the Beach

Villa Rocio, like the traditional village of Benajarafe, where it is situated, is both beautiful and peaceful. Situated in its own grounds with a private BBQ area and 10m x 5m pool, it is one of 2 villas that can be booked individually or together (together can accommodate 20+ people – see ref. S1408). A minute away from the beach and walking distance of local facilities; such as a local bakery, supermarket and chemist, there is little more needed for a stress free vacation. Comfort is key in this Mediterranean villa, with a spacious lounge and soft furnishings.

About c twine

Hi our names are Joe and Cath and we have been managing holiday lettings in Spain since 2002. We have a local on site manager who takes care of the day to day running of the villas for us. This gives our guests great peace of mind, who feel reassured they have someone at hand who speaks spanish, english etc.

We now have an established clientele who come back to us year after year. What our guests seem to like about our villas are: the cleanliness of the accommodation and pools, the very close proximity of the villas to the beach and the local airport, their convenient access to local restaurants, bars, a bank, supermarket and pharmacy, our secure parking arrangements, the spaciousness of our villas, their family orientation and quiet, realaxing and peaceful location.

c twine purchased this villa in 2002

Why c twine chose Vélez-Málaga

We bought Villa Rocio 2 because of its close proximity to the airport and beach which is only 200 meters away from the house. We also wanted to get away from the over developed and over congested concrete jungles to the west of Malaga where its difficult to move easily from place to place in summer. In contrast we liked the quiet and peaceful location of Benerjarafe which is situated within a popular and traditional Andalusian fishing village. We wanted a house which was easy to get to and from, but was sufficiently well located for our guests to get everything they needed within walking distance ie banks and cash points, a good selection of traditional but not overpriced restaurants and bars, a range of supermarkets, good beach facilities and an excellent local bakery etc.

What makes this villa unique

The main benefits of Villa 2 is its close proximity to the beach (only 200 meters) and its easy access to and from the airport and other tourist hot spots eg marinas (5km),golf courses(2km), large shopping complexes(5km) etc. Other benefits include being good value (Villa sleeps 14),the private pool, plenty of internal and external space, 3+ bathrooms, the indoor and outdoor alfresco BBQ and dining areas, large pool terrace area, seperate table tennis area, secure on site parking, on site Spanish speaking staff, a table tennis table, a bicycle satellite TV, all mod cons/dishwasher/washing machine, private and quiet location, good security on site/own safe etc, disabled access, air con in main lounge plus fans in all rooms, a wet room etc.

Great Relaxing Week

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night but were still greeted by a lovely care taker who explained where everything was and how it all worked, which can be a bit daunting when you arrive at night. She also was up early every day cleaning the drive, emptying bins and keeping things in order. The house was very clean and well furnished with all the things you would expect for a comfortable stay in a self catering house. A stones throw from the beach, some wonderful restaurants along the promenade (you could eat in a different one every night), a grocery store near-by and the best bakery just around the corner. The home is situated in a compound of two homes with a private drive and gated entrance which was a nice touch. There were only a few of us in the house so it felt like we could have a different room every night, the home is very spacious but appropriately furnished for dining or relaxing in the living room. It is well decorated and has a typical Spanish Villa feel about it. We will definitely be coming back.
