About Diane & Steve
We bought our beautiful Spanish retreat in June 2011; it was the views from the house and modern interior that clinched the deal! We live and work in England until we can afford to retire and base ourselves in Mijas. The house is used throughout the year by our family but we do rent it out when its free. It's set in the Spanish hills and is only 10 minutes by car or bus, from the sea. Our shared pool and the local municipal pool provide relief from the heat. We simply love the house, the village and the surrounding area. The weather is glorious, the people friendly and the food and wine tremendous. Good walking and cycling with easy access to skiing in the Sierra Nevadas suit our active lifestyle. Travel for the UK is easy with short and simple transfer from Malaga airport.

Why Diane & Steve chose Mijas
This location is a small piece of Spanish paradise. If you can imagine an area that isn't over built and spoiled by overzealous developers, this is it. The beautiful, lively village of Mijas is set up on the hillside overlooking the Mediterranean. The house is quiet with magnificent views of both hills and sea. You wake in the morning to birdsong and peacocks calling and sensational bedroom views. The lively village has many attractions and events every month. If you want a dip in the sea its 10 minutes down the hill either by car or the regular bus service at 1.25E. Our house has steep driveway access, so a car is recommended. The house benefits from a lift from the garage on the top of the house to all floors. A beautiful modern, comfortable house makes this an excellent holiday base. Mijas Heights has its own pool for use by residents and holiday guests only; it is normally quiet and has plenty of space for sun loungers. It also has a couple of picnic tables, showers and a poolside loo!
What makes this House unique
The village has many excellent restaurants and bars; most are reasonably priced. It is only a 5 minute walk to the nearest village 'supermarket' that has a good range of products. If you need more choice there are larger supermarkets and excellent shopping in Fengirolla. The village is friendly and relaxed. Our house is private, peaceful and well designed. It is difficult to feel any of the stress of modern life when you sit on the terrace and soak up the sun and panoramic views, so you return home feeling refreshed and invigorated. If you feel you need to cool down when it gets hot, it's a 100 meters to the pool or a short trip to the beach and a swim in the sea. If you play golf there's are a selection of courses near by and it's great hilly bike riding country for the fit.

We loved our week in Mijas which is the most gorgeous village we came across in our stay in Spain. The house had spectacular views and was perfectly located to walk to the village. We found the house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay and the hosts were great.
Proximity to town is fantastic. As is the bedding space. Views are pretty amazing.
Great spot. Very short walk to the main square. Heaps of space. Nice pool and views
CONVENIENT LOCATION PERFECT FOR OUR NEEDS
An easy walk to the countless restaurants of Mijas Pueblo. A great base to do day trips to Gibraltar, Córdoba, Granada, Nerja, Ronda and Malaga.
Well appointed property with amazing views.
We would have loved to have had a toilet in the shower room on the bottom level where there are 2 bedrooms.
Great location, shame about the steps to the villa and the distance to the communal pool
This is a very comfy house and definitely a home away from home.
A couple of things that weren’t clear in the description were a) to access the communal pool you need to actually leave and lock the property behind you, as well as carrying the sunloungers with you and b) the steps from the entrance down to the property are really steep and would not suit anyone with mobility issues (or who suffers from vertigo!).
If we had been aware of these two things and still gone ahead with the booking the rating would be higher. As we only realised it when we arrived we were disappointed.
Great apartment, stunning location
Property was pretty much perfect for our 2 families. Having the extra living space for the kids was ideal. Appartment clean & well equipped plus view is amazing. Hosts were so welcoming and helpful.
Beautiful property with breathtaking views
Myself and 4 friends had a fantastic few days in Mijas. The property is in an idyllic location, just a short walk away from the shops, bars and restaurants with stunning views of Fuengirola and the ocean.
On arrival, the property was in an immaculate condition. The villa is very well equipped with all the essentials for cooking at home and the air conditioning is a god send in the hot weather! There are sun loungers which can be used by the beautiful communal pool as well as two spacious sun terraces which enjoy the sunshine all day long.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the villa and would recommend it to others. I already look forward to returning again next year!
Special interest holidays:
Walking; there is an abundance of walking in the area with a range of routes from Mijas Pueblo itself; maps from tourist information in the village. Using the bus or car you can access other walking routes of varying intensity/difficultly
Rock Climbing in the village. Horse riding. The Lew Hoad Tennis Centre is 5 minutes drive and can be accessed by the local bus service. The area is very popular with cyclists - both road and mountain bikers. Beware however, you need a strong pair of lungs and trained legs to cope with the hilly terrain!
The village has a large, well shaded community swimming pool a kilometer walk from the house; it has a well priced restaurant and entrance is 50 cents!
The many beaches of Fuengirola are a 10 minute drive by bus or car with those at Benalmadina and Torremolinos 20 minutes drive.
The nearest airport is Malaga which is a 15 minute drive. Car hire is recommended but not necessary as public transport is good and our house in close proximity to the village centre. However you can catch a train from the airport to Fuengirola. Walk 300 metres to the bus station and catch the Bus No 122 (Costs 1.25 euros) to Mijas. This will take about 45 minutes depending on bus times.
The town of Mijas is a 2 minute walk; village centre a 5 minute walk. Fuengirola 10 minutes drive or bus , Benalmadena 20 minutes drive or bus. Malaga centre 30 minutes drive or 30 minutes from Fuengirola by train (E1.40), Marbella and Puerto Banus 30 minutes drive or bus.
Mijas has many shops, 3 small supermarkets, a local indoor market and a good selection of restaurants. Fuengirola and Benalmadena both have larger supermarkets and an excellent selection of shops, bars, restaurants and nightlife.
