It is comfortably furnished throughout in a homely manner with many extras available to guests. The pool terrace is a sun trap from where you can watch the sun rise and set whilst not being over-looked. You have excellent views of the sea and can watch the ocean cruise liners as they arrive and depart from Malaga. There are also good views of the Mijas mountains behind the villa.

Ample shade is provided by sails and a sunshade and a decked area leading off the lounge provides a comfortable place to relax, with an inviting double sun bed to catch the last rays whilst enjoying a cool drink before the nights festivities.

The dining area leads off the kitchen and seats 6 people. From here you walk out onto a level pool terrace with the hot tub, pool and sunbeds.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Third time here and it feels like coming home. As ever Bob, you are the most fantastic host and out night with you in the Gin Bar, Nautica and Bordega Charolais was the best. The following day proved we needed to be here longer to truly follow the 'Spanish time clock' - we were wrecked!! Had a wonderful time in Malaga, a good City break venue - and Julie found her Flamenco Bar - in the diary for next time. Free traditional Flamenco by the Cathedral. Have enjoyed some amazing balmy evenings (out favourite bit) we just love it here and can't wait to return. Villa Floyd and Bob are little gems. Thank you so much

Everything was as promised; met at train station by Bobs friend; short distance to villa; Villa was spotless and the pool area magnificent. The welcome pack was all we needed to get lunch and much more. Bob was always available with little tips - the perfect host. The villa is in an excellent location; would strongly recommend it and we will return

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Your smiles told me you were enjoying your stay at Villa Floyd and it was a pleasure to help you with a few suggestions of best restaurants etc. Las Islas is within easy walking distance and I was very pleased you rated this the best one you visited as it is a favourite of mine. Your entry in the visitors book might rate as the best ever, many thanks and I hope to see you both again at Villa Floyd one day.

Perfect host, great home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated great. Lots of privacy and only 10 min walk to the beach. Bob is a great host; when we arrived there were groceries for the first few days, including bread, fresh strawberries and even cookies for our kids! Bob had some great advice on were to go and we tried them all. From places to visit to where to eat; everything was spot-on!

The house has sun all day so you can use the pool all day as well. And in the evening, when the kids went to sleep, we've enjoyed the jacuzzi several times. We love to try different places and houses but if we will go back to Fuengirola in the future, Bob is the first one we will contact again.

Thank you for everything Bob and give our love to Svetlana. Anouk is still very happy with all her presents... :-)

Private, convenient, sun most of day, all you want

  • 5 of 5

In over 20 years of villa holidays we have never had such a thoughtful and comprehensive welcome pack.

The villa's kitchen has just been refurbished and you can gaze out to sea from it. The sea is also visible from the pool area which has a table and chairs. The sun is on this area from about 7am to 8.30pm, but, being high up, there is usually a breeze and plenty of shaded areas are provided.

Don't choose this villa if steps and stairs are a problem for you. They were no problem to us and Villa Floyd is definitely on the short list of villas we would like to re-visit.

We did hire a car, which was convenient but, being so close to Torreblanca railway station, it was not essential and we didn't use the car for trips to Malaga or Fuengirola.

Bob is very friendly, helpful and was always available when needed.

It was great being close enough to walk down to the sea where there is a wide selection of eating places. We would advise that you avoid Chicken Jack, but all the others we tried were great, especially Curro Playa where there is a Friday night Flamenco show'

All in all, a great holiday, much helped by Bob's input. We hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Nigel, thank you for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Floyd and appreciated the new kitchen and general upgrades throughout the villa. The welcome food and drinks pack allows guests to relax on arrival and not have to rush out to the supermarket when the poolside is the place to be.

Notes:
Villa Floyd is extremely well located in a quiet residential area, yet with easy access to the sea front, with miles of 'Blue Flag' beaches that are spotless, rocks to clamber over and a gentle sea where children can play. The nearby town of Fuengirola and all points between Malaga and Fuengirola are easily reached via the excellent local train service. Malaga is a gem to visit, the home of Picasso, which you can visit, together with his Museums, the Cathedral and the Old Town with its delight of Tapas bars. The whole area is designed for families, it is safe and secure and with some hints and tips from the owner of Villa Floyd, you will see the very best of this section of the Costa del Sol.
