About Joy Floody
Hi I'm Joy & my husband's name is Tony. We have been living in Spain for several years now & love the way of life.
Joy Floody purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Joy Floody chose Torrox
We bought Casa Joya in 2004 & although the house was much more basic when we bought it with no drive, pool or terraces we fell in love with the location & spectacular views & knew that we could make it into a beautiful home so we have made many improvements. . Believe it or not it was already named (almost) after me as the man who sold it to us had a nickname of Antonio Joya! We have travelled a lot around Spain & can't find anywhere that gives us everything we want like the Torrox area can. We have beautiful views, peace & quiet but with the lively tourist resorts only a few minutes away. We can walk the lovely hillsides or the beaches & promenades. We love it & hope you will too!
What makes this Villa unique
Casa Joya is situated away from it all but with lively tourist resorts on your doorstep giving you the best of both worlds. It offers a place to relax & unwind in a home from home enjoying the spectacular views with only the sound of the birds to listen to. You won't want to leave! With the annex as well you can bring along grandparents, friends, too.
No smoking in the house. Please respect the house and leave it clean and tidy. Thanks!
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
A little piece of heaven
Had a marvellous week at Casa Joya (well-named!). It looked difficult to access on the map, but Joy's detailed directions and the signs at the key junctions meant there were no problems, although you still had to be careful negotiating the narrow roads.
Joy and Tony were very pleasant hosts, calling in to visit on the 2nd morning to check that all was well. The location and views from the villa were stunning, and it was utterly peaceful:nothing to be heard except the occasional barking of a dog. Lovely pool, a very comfortable covered terrace where I had my meals, and a roof terrace from where I saw eagles on 3 occasions. Plus Sky Sports and BT Sports on the TV!
Add in a week's unbroken sunshine, dramatic sunsets and a magnificent array of stars visible at night, and you have the reasons for the title of this review!
Thank you Paul for such a lovely review. We're so glad you had a lovely time at Casa Joya.
A relaxing stay in a beautiful villa
The villa was very well presented, clean and tidy, and well equipped. Due to flight availability, we arrived very late but gaining entry to the property was no problem. A well equipped kitchen with all the usual appliances, a good selection of TV channels for the quiet evenings, nice sized pool and a spectacular view.
Lovely villa in a great location.
We have stayed in this area a few times before so knew the area pretty well, but had forgotten just how narrow and windy the approach road can be. But it is worth the trip for the views and peace and quiet. The villa is well positioned for sun all day. The pool is a constant 28 deg and is kept crystal clear. The various seating areas are great as you can have as much or little sun/shade as you choose. There are loads of easily accessible restaurants and bars within 20/30 minutes drive. The villa is well equipped and the aircon in the living room and master bedroom worked well. The tv and wifi were excellent, all the sky sports and film channels as well as regular channels. we had a great time and would definitely recommend this place as a fantastic holiday get away. Being 100% honest I must say the 2 single beds were very squeaky and noisy although comfortable, and the w/c plumbing is Greek style (no paper in the pan !) these 2 minor issues didn't spoil our holiday. Any minor issues were dealt with quickly by the maintenance crew, "Spiker " and his wife who are both lovely. All things said, we had a great two weeks of relaxation, good local food and enjoyment. Don't miss out on this villa.
We're so pleased you had a lovely holiday and thank you for your informative review.

Karen & JB
Thank you - so pleased you enjoyed rest and relaxation!
Perfect villa for a relaxing holiday
We have just returned from a lovely holiday at Casa Joya and can thoroughly recommend it for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday. The villa was spacious and modern with good air conditioning and wifi and also a variety of outside eating areas and a lovely terrace. We would start the day with breakfast by the pool overlooking spectacular mountain views and then go for a 40 minute walk around the mountain. Tony and Joy were lovely hosts and it was a pleasure to meet them and hear all about their travels. We are looking forward to returning in the future.
Thank you! We're very pleased that you enjoyed your time at Casa Joya. Hope to see you again!
