Casa Barco (The Ship House) is situated in a quiet road in the village of Rincon de la Victoria, just 18km from the city of Malaga. Built in 2013, the 4 double rooms and 1 twin are beautifully furnished with 5 ensuite bathrooms. The house has spectacular sea views, which can be enjoyed from all over the house and garden, and a saline freshwater infinity pool. Extensive garden includes areas shaded by pine trees, a gazebo with barbeque area and a trampoline. Steps down to two local beaches and towns. Supermarket 5 minutes drive. The house featured in Homes by The Med (Channel 4): Costa del Sol
We are a British / Spanish couple living in Madrid, who finally managed to build the house of our dreams.
We have three children and have made this house as child friendly as possible.
Monica Lozano purchased this villa in 2013
We fell in love with the plot of land 13 years ago, and it took 10 years and an economic crisis to convince the owner to sell it to us and to build the house. There simply isn't any other property with these views in the coast, we regularly see dolphins jumping in front of the house! (video on request). We use the house ourselves but would love for others to be able to enjoy it as well. It is also very conveniently located for shops and supermarkets, as well as the beach. We can provide tips on activities, restaurants, etc in the area, and recommend guests visit the city of Malaga, which has gone through a major refurbishment and is now a vibrant city with plenty of cafes and restaurants. Day trips to historical sites such as Granada, Ronda and Sevilla are feasible and there are bike tracks and golf courses nearby.
What makes this property unique is the calm of living right in front of the sea with 180 degree views. We have furnished the house as our home and the garden offers multiple spaces to enjoy the views and just relax and unwind. It is always painful to leave!
What a view!!...more than 180 ° on the extraordinary Mediterranean Sea.
But also, what a house !!
A lot of places too chose for resting, inside and outside, for every instant of the day.
Materials are high quality and very nice : exactly as we like (we live in a very modern loft in Paris).
Very well chosen pieces of furniture everywhere in the house. (probably coming from Bali, as a lot of art pieces).
Can you imagine a table on a terrace sheltered from the sun almost all day long, next to the kitchen, and with a magnificent view on the pool, the garden and the sea, which can seat 20 persons and we were only 3 couples.
The rooms (5) are very comfortable and big, all with bathrooms, and the ones on first floor, with a terrace giving some more views on the sea.
A kitchen with all what is needed to cook and we used it a lot.
Finally, the garden and the swimming pool…
The pool is splendid, with its taupe paving which favors the temperature of the water.
We were there at the beginning of June, and the pool temperature was 28 ° at least, while the sea, was only 21 or 22 °. .
Malaga is very close: a lot of very nice pedestrian streets, as a lot of city in France should have it, and two splendid museums : Picasso museum and an annex of the Centre Pompidou.. And of course, don't forget to visit Grenada and the Alhambra, it's only 90' drive.
Thanks Monica for your welcome, and your help throughout our stay.
The house is all automatic (lights shelters and music) and is also manageable on Internet, and if you don’t know how to open or close all the shelters at once.. Monica can do it from outside…
Yes, we recommend this house, and will love to come again.
Martine & Georges
We were ten adults celebrating birthdays and wedding anniversaries. The villa was lovely with scenic views and relaxing pool. Also had several different seating areas so you could easily keep out of wind or sun if wished. Nice gardens and good access to local amenities. Public transport to Malaga easy to use and very reasonable. Beach side restaurants with good menus.
We were there, all three generations (13 altogether), to celebrate grandma’s 70th. Casa Barca was perfect with all facilities and views you can ever dream about – great house, lovely and spacious garden with a barbeque dining area, the great pool perfect for all ages and not to forget the sandy beaches just a few minutes’ walk away from the house.
We rented bikes in Ricon de la Victoria for local sightseeing and shopping and enjoyed the short bus ride to Malaga for added cultural events and sights.
A truly stunning villa. Amazing views, stunning pool area and beautiful furnishings. Only a short hop to great restaurants (tried all the recommendations and all were great). Would equally recommend staying in and enjoying one of the best views in Malaga. Rare that you rent a place that turns out to be better than the pictures.
Excellent home with elegant furniture. Beautiful garden and pool area directly at the sea. Probably the most beautiful house to rent east of Malaga. A place for a perfect holiday.
I don’t have words to explain the experience in casa Barco. We spent 5 marvellous days, impressive place in a unique location and you can find it in a comfortable 30 minutes from Malaga airport! I’m not sure if I can include the video that I took the first morning after waking up to give a flavour, but, the views were unbelievable – just like being in a remote island in the middle of the ocean! And this is not all; the house has many other fantastic aspects, the quality and style of the decoration, the swimming pool, the distribution and spaces … and just 5 minutes from the beach. Just marvellous!
5 minute walk (via steps) to Cala del Moral beachfront and 10 minutes walk (via steps) to Rincon de la Victoria beachfront. Both beaches have bars and restaurants. Both sandy beaches with sunbeds available in high season.
Nearest Airport: Malaga (AGP), 28km - 20 minutes by car
The house is situated between two towns, with Rincon de la Victoria the largest, a 10 minutes walk away (or 2 minutes in car). Malaga is 20 minutes away by car, and there you can visit the Picasso Museum, Pompidou Centre, the old town, the port and new marina and water front, the cathedral, bull fighting ring, etc. The motorway between Malaga and Motril is 1km away and Nerja/Frigiliana 30 minutes drive.
There are some beautiful Andalusian villages like Benagalbon just 15 minutes from the house. Shopping mall with Carrefour and cinemas is about 8 minutes drive. Nearest supermarket is Mercadona in Rincon de la Victoria, 2 minutes in the car or 10 minutes walk downhill (15 minutes back!).
