|Minimum Stay||4 nights|
Beautiful 3 bedroom villa with panoramic views to the sea, on the edge of the typically Spanish village of 'Mijas Pueblo' on the Costa del Sol in Spain and just 25 minutes from Malaga airport. The villa has its own enclosed garden and terraces with dining furniture and a BBQ - perfect for al fresco dining on the year round warm Costa del sol evenings! Indoors, there is a fully equipped kitchen including microwave, dishwasher and washing machine and an open plan dining/sitting area with Freesat TV and DVD. There are three bedrooms with ceiling fans and 2 bathrooms which include Egyptian white cotton linen and towels respectively. The communal pool has two areas suitable for smaller children together with a garden and sun loungers, coconut parasols surrounded by lush tropical plants. The historic town of Mijas itself has many restaurants, tapas bars and you can even get a ride home in a donkey taxi. Just 10 minutes away there are several fantastic beaches from Fuengirola to Marbella.
The beautiful villa with pool in Mijas Pueblo, Costa del Sol, Spain is located within walking distance to the centre of the enchanting village of Mijas, which is situated in the lowlands of the Sierra de Mijas mountain range and is surrounded by pine forest. The village nestles in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level and has a population of 7,500. The nearest main town is the Spanish sea-side resort Fuengirola (8km), Malaga airport is 25 mins by car. Mijas has managed to retain much of its 'white village' charm, with cobbled, narrow winding streets, dazzling whitewashed walls and breathtaking views. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy watersports, including sailing, scuba, windsurfing and canoeing along the many km's of golden sandy beaches from Fuengirola to Marbella, Puerto Banus, Estepona and towards Gibralter. Worthwhile trips to the flamenco town of Seville or indeed visit the amazing Alhambra Palace near Granada. From December to April the Sierra Nevada mountains near Granada offer great sking with amazing views over to North Africa
Andalucia and the Costa del Sol or affectionately known as Costa del Golf is a mecca for golfers with 60 courses in Andalucia and 30 alone in the Costa del Sol, including Valderrama host to the 97 Ryder Cup, and La Cala de Mijas which is the largest golf resort in Spain. For the golfing widow a trip to the huge La Canada Shopping centre in Marbella will more than soften the blow!
Other activities include the Aqua Park and Zoo in Fuengirola, Sea Life Centre or Big Game Fishing from Benalmadena and Dolphin spotting plus the legendary apes from Gibralter,
We all had a fantastic time especially sunbathing around the swimming pool. The villa was excellent in evry way and is in an enviable location.
The Villa was very comfortable and spacious and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. As the owner’s pictures depict, the views from the balcony, terrace are stunning. It is located just outside Mijas centre and takes about 25 minutes to walk to the numerous bars, restaurants and shops. We even made use of the pool – in October!
Would definitely recommend.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa, it was everything we could have wished for a beautiful setting with suburb views and equipped to a very high standard.
We definitely plan to go back,

This review is given a low rating as a result of the owner misleading us on wi-fi on site and several other factors that lead to a miserable experience. We didn't want to be there. Almost spent another 1200.00 on hotel but none really available. Then almost considered going home early.
I specifically asked in an email if there was wi-fi. The listing doesn't say there is. Here is the reply:
Thank you for your enquiry on my holiday rental (855101).
My property is available from 26-Jul-2014 to 02-Aug-2014 and wifi is available on site. If you have questions or would like to reserve the property, please call or email me.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.

We arrived to find no wi-fi at the villa. Called Mark immediately as my sister was working and needed wi-fi. We were told, after already paying and arriving,on the phone, that the wifi was at the bar down the street. That only opened at 5:30 pm each day. I guess i was supposed to infer that from the reply listed above. They deliberately mislead us by saying wifi was "available on site". Not cool. Very upset.
I knew there was no air-conditioning. The listing states this but says there are ceiling fans. Yes, small and not useful. It does cool down at night. But you can not open any doors or windows as geckos, moths and mosquitos overrun the place. We know. We spent the first night chasing large geckos out and then being eaten by mosquitos. Oh, and ants everywhere! We bought two fans @ cost of 40 euros. Left them behind for next guests.
Two rolls of bathroom tissue provided - we had to buy
One trash bag for the week.
No beach towels. We had to buy some. (left behind for next guests)
No broom. Just a vacuum.
Porches not swept, corners filled with debris and webs and leaves/bugs
Drying rack filthy, had to clean before using w/clean clothes
Pictures not accurate. Walls, decorations different and view blocked by trees now.
No white Egyptian bath towels as advertised...blue, cotton.
Stains on sheets, brown ??? and pink lipstick on my pillow cases.
The pool was as advertised. Clean and quiet. Was great once we bought our own towels.
Overall not what was advertised, misleading on wifi (would have never rented if known it wasn't at villa - sister working) and generally unkept/unclean.
Asking owners for partial refund.
A very comfortable, spacious apartment in a quite spot just outside the pueblo. As the info states a car is necessary as the walk into the middle of the Pueblo where everything happens is uphill and takes approx half hour, but for a peaceful paradise it's perfect. Super pool area too. As for Mijas, we last went 14 years ago and fortunately it has not changed at all. Full of character, spotlessly clean and loads of nice restaurants.
NOUS AVONS APPRECIE CETTE TRES AGREABLE VILLA AVEC UNE VUE MAGNIFIQUE SUR LA MER ET LA MONTAGNE. NOUS SOMMES ENCHANTES PAR NOTRE SEJOUR. LE DESCRIPTIF CORRESPOND BIEN A LA REALITE.
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Mijas.
It was so nice to wake up in the morning without wondering which weather we would have during the day ...
The villa was very comfortable and very well equiped.
We could appreciate the swimming-pool everyday and be relaxed in the isolated area. The place was very quiet and close to the pretty village where we could find restaurants, we could make different visits and meet welcoming people.
We would recommend without any doubt this villa for its good performance.
