Villa in Bahia de Casares, Nr La Duquesa / Estepona, Costa del Sol - Set In Private Secluded Garden With 16m Pool And Sea Views, Short Walk To Beach And Bar
About Nikki Jeffrey
Julian and I fell in love with this part of Spain on our pre-honeymoon! Good friends allowed us the use of their villa and we loved it so much we decided to buy. Jamie our son was born soon after and we have now enjoyed 19 years of holidaying at Bahia de Casares and its surrounding area. It is very much home from home for us and we want you to enjoy the villa as much as we do. It is very child friendly - i.e. no overly expensive furnishings for you to worry about! And as there is only 1 point of access to the garden/pool it is very easy to keep children away from the area by closing this one door. As well as a great family villa, Julian has enjoyed boys golfing weekends and I have enjoyed many girls weekends! Jamie is also now enjoying holidays with his friends.
Nikki Jeffrey purchased this Villa in 1998
Why Nikki Jeffrey chose Casares
This part of Spain is so easy to get too - either via Gibraltar Airport or Malaga Airport, the latter of which is serviced by countless airlines. The flight time is approx two and a half hours so if you catch an early flight you can be enjoying a swim and drinks by the pool by lunchtime! The villa, pool and garden provide a secure, secluded setting but within a few mins drive you can find many shops, supermarkets, beaches, bars etc and although a busy part of the coast it is not built-up like the resorts closer to Malaga. We always have to spend at least one day at Puerto Banus to people watch and admire the cars and yachts in the harbour. Unspoilt areas can still be found in the traditional fishing and mountain villages. This is not an ultra modern 5* villa - it is around 40 years old and is on an established urbanisation with a mix of villas and apartments. However it is well furnished and equipped and will provide a comfortable stay for your holiday. The key feature of our villa is the lovely private pool and garden which provides a relaxing and secluded setting for you and your family to recharge your batteries! We do our best to keep on tops of things that need doing/replacing - for example last year it was mattresses to bedrooms 2 and 3, sofas and dining room chairs. Any suggestions during or after your stay are welcome.
What makes this Villa unique
Once we step inside it feels like home and we love the peace and quiet of our private garden and pool. Our friends and family often come with us and they too consider it their second home.

Perfect Villa for a Relaxing Holiday
We usually fly into Malaga and turn left, so this was our first trip down this coast and what a delight. A short drive south of Estepona, the villa was easy to find and was a complete home from home. It's an older property and it wouldn't describe itself as luxuriuous, but it's none the worse for that. There was everything we wanted for a two week stay, during which we did very little except laze around and in the huge pool (you can really swim lengths in this one!) and soak up the sun in any of several sun traps this property has to offer. There's even a fridge/freezer outside near the pool - handy for G&T's on the terrace!
We cooked most of our meals ourselves in the very well equipped kitchen, with produce from the easily accessible local shops.
If we weren't venturing out, once the sun had gone down, there was a variety of TV channels to choose from and a good wi-fi signal for internet too.
And it was just a short walk, or car ride if you're feeling especially lazy, to a long and practically deserted sandy beach. We drove out for the day to Casares and Ronda but that's about as energetic as we got!
Considering it's not far from the main road, we were amazed how quiet it was, sitting in the gardens watching birds swoop low over the pool!
Returning home to Yorkshire, the temperature drop was more than 10 degrees...I think it won't be long before we're heading back!
Nikki has a great villa a real home from home.
An older villa which has real character with a large pool in a lovely private garden and is very peaceful.
All amenities are a short drive away so what more could you want.
Stayed here before and it's still absolutely lovely. All you need for a chill-out holiday is here at hand. Nikki (the owner) is always so helpful and communication is excellent.
Really enjoy this villa!

A beautiful villa in a super area, the swimming pool, garden and outdoor terrace lovely.
Everything in the villa is very nice, making it very comfortable and relaxing to stay in. The owner was very helpful in providing details and helpful tips, and would definitely like to return. The pool and the outside area is beautiful too. Loads to do in an interesting part of Spain which was new to us.
Fabulous holiday villa was just perfect for us a real home from home
What a great place. The villa had everything you could need and watching the sunrise from the top terrace was just perfect . Great time had by us all - the pool was awesome! Slight issue when we arrived in getting into the villa but it was very quickly sorted out by the owner which was great. Communication has been excellent throughout.
It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay! Thank you for your review Pauline, it's always good to hear what our guests think and how we can improve our service. We look forward to welcoming you back should you choose to visit this part of Spain in the future.
All the very best
As the villa is on the coast the local beach and bar is a 5-10 min walk. A short drive will find many other beaches at Sabinillas (2km), Estepona (6km) both of which offer loungers and umbrellas for a small fee and showers/wc, beach bars and a safe environment for young children. Further afield you can easily reach Sotogrande (12km), Puerto Banus (17km) and Tarifa (50km) where the Atlantic meets the Med with its long sandy beaches and host to windsurfing competitions.
Malaga Airport (90km) - approx 50 min drive. Bus travel is available but we have not yet tried it (change at Estepona and then taxi from Sabinillas).
Gibraltar Airport (40km) - approx 30 min drive. Recommend that you walk through the border and take hire car/taxi from Spanish side.
Car hire is highly recommended.
Sabinillas is the nearest village (2km) with wide range of amenities - supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, restaurants, beach and promenade etc.
La Duquesa (4km)- pretty port and harbour overlooked by bars and restuarants.
Estepona (7km) - large Spanish town with all amenities, long sandy beach and promenade with playgrounds for young children.
Puerto Banus (17km) - lively cosmopolitan port to people, car and yacht watch!
Casares (12Km) - described as a 'spilt paint pot' in the mountains.
There is a communal pool on the urbanisation that guests of the villa are entitled to use from May - Sept. This is lovely for a change of scene or for slightly older children who may want to escape the adults for an hour or two. It is not attended so children must be supervised by you.
Fashionable shopping and lively nightlife can be found at Puerto Banus and Marbella - about 30 mins drive.
Further afield you can explore the beauty of Ronda, Seville, Cordoba, Granada or even cross the Med and explore the markets in Africa for the day.
