2 bedroom & 2 bathroom apartment (sleeps 4 adults), with stunning views/pool
Very spacious and high quality 2 double bedroom/2 bathroom completely independent apartment, recently refurbished, located on the entire bottom floor of a large villa with a stunning 1800 square meter garden (ideal playing space for children). The owners live in a separate part of Villa Juana and respect the tenants privacy during their stay (as is confirmed by our reviews).

The apartment, garden, lower balcony, pool and garage (for one car) are not utilised by any other tenants during your stay. The pool is also not utilised by the owners when tenants are renting.
Fantastic sea and mountain views. One of the most rural areas of the Costa del Sol. The villa is located in an exclusive urbanization with excellent/easy access from the main coast road and is literally a stone's throw from the beach. The property is fully enclosed and safe for children. Very quiet and peaceful area but still only a 5 minute drive or easy bus ride to urban centers such as benalmadena costa or fuengirola.
Is renting a car necessary?: Although a car is recommended for site seeing, it is not required. All the essentials are within a maximum of 15 minutes walk from the villa.
Train station: 15 minutes (Malaga to Fuengirola);
Bus stop: 5 minutes (Malaga to Marbella);
Beach: 5 minutes;
Supermarket (open 7 days a week): 10 minutes;
Restaurants/bars: 10 minutes;
Tennis courts: 15 minutes;
More information on the local area: The villa is situated in one of the most beautiful, quiet and less urbanized areas of the Costa del Sol. The main street outside the house is a windy and scenic 2km route up to the idyllic Benalmadena Pueblo (local village). If you enjoy walking/hiking, it is a very enjoyable 25-30min walk up to the village. Once in the village, you have panoramic views of the whole area and there are plenty of options for eating, drinking and you can find all the services of a normal town (ie. supermarket, banks, post office).
If you walk in the other direction (south), you will find yourself on the beach within 5 minutes. Once on the coast road, you can enjoy a walk either west or east in which you have beach after beach to choose from .
What to do?: When staying at Villa Juana, you can spend your whole time relaxing around your private terrace/balcony/pool and garden. For the more adventurous, there is plenty to see both culturally and nature wise in and around the province of Malaga.
If you rent a car, within a one hour drive you can enjoy scenic drives that lead you to beautiful Andalusian mountain village such as Mijas and Ronda. For those who thoroughly enjoy unspoiled/protected beaches, within a 45 minute drive East of Villa Juana are the wonderful beaches of Nerja.
For those who are into sporting activities, it is very easy to go hiking around the area as it is surrounding by local mountain and hiking paths. In addition, the neighbouring urbanisation (Torremuelle) has several tennis courts (only 7 Euro an hour and surrounded by lovely scenery).
Culturally, an easy/cheap train ride to Malaga centre has a lot to offer: from Moorish ruins, a Roman amphitheatre, a wonderful cathedral, the museum of Picasso.

Nice holiday home
A spacious, clean, apartment on the lower level of a house, overlooking a garden and the sea. There is also a small balcony and a small dining terrace outside the entrance to the flat. Beds were very comfortable. We found the kitchen a bit sparely equipped. E.g. we bought a strainer for draining canned food and washing vegetables.
A few steps lead to the upper level, where the pool(area) with sun chairs and stunning sea view, is situated. The villa is situated in a quiet area, separated from the village road by a wall. Although the front yard of the owners flat is situated on this level, we were never disturbed.
On the contrary the owners were very friendly, discrete and helpful at all times. We did not have a car, but the eve we arrived the landlady took us to the nearest supermarket (about 1,6 kilometers) for shopping breakfast and basic stuffs, and drinks. This happened also later during our 17 days stay.
If you do not travel by car, please be aware of the fact, that the villa is situated up a rather steep winding road approx. 250 meters from the main coastal road (N340). The distance to the nearest supermarket ( Mercadona, excellent by the way) is approx. 1,6 kms and to the nearest restaurant and taxi station a little under a kilometer. Taxis are cheap, but you should know the number, if you have to call for one. When we went shopping for food, we normally had a nice walk to Mercadona ( 30 mins.) and took a taxi back home with our purchase.
Thanks for you kind comments. As far as the kitchen being sparely equipped is concerned, we have never had any complaints in all our years of renting. In addition, if a strainer or anything was missing, then you by all means just should have asked my parents (my mother probably has 5 in her kitchen)! Anyhow, we will check the kitchen to see if things have gone missing along the years.
All the best,
Spacious and comfortable apartment with stunning garden and pool area
We were looking for somewhere to get away from it all to recharge batteries and we weren't disappointed.
A lovely, spacious apartment beneath the owners villa with plenty of natural light. A large lounge area with corridor off leading to an indoor dining area, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A/C in lounge and bedrooms. 2 triple wardrobes in main bedroom so plenty of hanging space.
The main attraction for us was the garden area and pool and expectations were met 100%. Owners keep both clean and tidy and even though Taysir and Sonia are around at times, they're extremely discreet and do not interfere with your privacy.
We did not hire a car but knew the area having stayed nearby last year. We travelled about by bus and train. To get into Benalmadena costs you have about a 15 min walk to the bus stop but coming back there is a stop at bottom of road to apt (5 min walk uphill). Just have To be mindful last bus around 22.20. To get to Fueringirola you hop in bus at bottom of road. Not sure of return time of bus but we caught train back to Torremuelle and walked back (about 15 mins). Caught train to Arroyo de la Miel (beware - station up steep hill too). Plenty of places to eat and drink in all. There are some small bars and restaurants within 15 min walk from apt too.
Took train from airport to Torremuelle and then got taxi and for 2 of us it was just over €10.
Fantastic holiday and sending Taysir and Sonia our best wishes and thanking them for their hospitality as we even spent an enjoyable evening with them before we had to return to normality. Thanks too to Tareq for the pre holiday communication and sorry we missed you due to our flight dealt and our subsequent laziness next day.
Thank you very much for your very detailed, kind and honest review. You were great tenants. I am down here now with the girls and having a great time! All the best.

Thanks for your comments Carl. Hope you had a great stay. Tareq, Taysir & Sonia
Wonderful week in paradise
We had such a lovely stay in Villa Juana and couldn't have asked for anything more. The apartment was spotless, the pool and outside area were perfect for lounging around, and the hospitality we received was exceptional.
We rented a car so found it very easy to get around, and there is a garage to park your car in within the villa with a remote to operate the door. Even without a car, the beach is only 5-10 mins walk away, so it's very accessible however you choose to get around.
Small, personal touches made such a difference - from the coffee machine (with spare filters) to the anti-mosquito plugins, we didn't want for anything and the hosts are clearly experts in what they do!
Thank you so much for making our holiday perfect - we'll definitely be recommending. Sophie and Jake x
Dear Sophie and Jake, thanks for your great feedback. Really happy that you enjoyed your stay! Kind regards. Tareq, Taysir and Sonia
Highly recommend this property
The property was well maintained and very clean. Likewise the pool which was fantastic. Tay and Sonia the owners were very helpful and Sonia even took us to the Supermarket when we arrived and also up into the Pueblo as we didn't have a car.
Although living in a separate part of the property you wouldn't know they were there most of the time.
The location is nice and quiet away from the main busy area in Benalmadena. Buses and taxis were available if you wanted to venture further afield which worked well for us but otherwise would recommend hiring a car.
The views from the Villa were fantastic and also the position meant that the property inside stayed relatively cool which was nice.
We had some great meal out, both in restaurants down near the beach at Play Bonita and also up in Benalmadena Pueblo.
We had a lovely time and would thoroughly recommend.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Juana.
Tareq, Taysir and Sonia
