The Villa is rustic with fireplaces, covered terraces and with an outdoor barbeque area with a nice bar. The garden is full of flowers and palms; a perfect place for the children to play. All rooms are furnitured with beds in nice conditions, in the kitchen there is all your need for 12 persons.

The pool is filled with salt water. Salt water is very gentle to your skin, eyes, and hair. The pool is 100% automaticly driven so the pH is always at the right level.

About Hans

I am Danish and living in Denmark. I was born in 1967. I work in Spain from 1995 to 2001 and during that period I lived with my family in the villa..

Hans purchased this villa in 1999

Why Hans chose Benalmadena

I bought this villa because I love the typical Spanish rustic style. We wanted to live in a safe, quiet, established neighborhood. it was also very important for me and my family that is walking distance to shops, restaurants, and most importantly to the beach.

What makes this villa unique

Saltwater Pool

Dissapointing - owner cancelled last minute

  • 1 of 5

We booked this apartment 7 months in advance of our stay, but were informed 3 weeks before we were due to fly (and after we had paid the full amount and damage deposit) that the owner had double booked. Our booking was cancelled and we were given a full refund within a couple of days, but we were left with 3 weeks to find a new place to stay.

We had a great stay at the Villa (spacious and luxurious)

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Villa and will if we are going back to Costa del Sol definitely consider booking the villa again. The Villa was spacious and luxurious with great outdoor facilities such as the swimming pool where we enjoyed afternoon drinks and relaxation. During breakfast and dinner and evening relaxation we enjoyed sitting in the covered terrace area which could easily fit 12 people. Great spacious kitchen with all necessary appliances and good spacious bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. The villa has a great view to the ocean and are placed in a very quiet area. The only disadvantage with respect to location was that in the morning around 9 o'clock and in the afternoon around 5 o'clock parrents blocked the street while collecting their kids in the local school just around the corner. In general we were very content with the place and had a great vacation. Thank you.

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa was lovely and clean and on arrival we were shown where everything is and told about the area. Our 2 families had the best holiday ever. The added bonus of children's toys and games was great. All rooms were very spacious and rooms that didn't have air conditioning had fans. The kitchen was fully equipped to cater for large parties and the bar area was great. There is a separate 1 bedroomed flat attached to the house. Security at the villa is excellent. Pubs and shops are within 10 minute walking distance but it is a bit of a hilly walk back to the villa. The marina is an excellent place to visit but is about a 45 minute walk or 10€ in a taxi. I would have no hesitation recommending this villa and hope to return again

Would definitely recommend a stay in this lovely traditional villa on hill top. The villa was very nice and tidy with a fantastic swimming pool and sunbathing area, the BBQ area was great too with a lovely covered seating area to the rear of the property where we spent a lot of time during the evening!.

Would recommend this to family's with young children as it has high walls all around the property (so children cant escape!!). The villa is situated on top of a hill with sea views from front of property, if you do not like hills then may be a good idea to hire a car (has a large drive way), was absolutely fine for us as we do a lot of walking anyway! if you walk down to the bottom of the hill and onto the beach are a couple of very good restaurants. Overall very nice holiday enjoyed buy all , and villa was very good value for money!!! , we will be booking up again!

Lisbeths 60 års fødselsdag i Gitanilla

  • 4 of 5

Kære Hans Kurt

Så er vi tilbage igen og vores ferie i "Gitanilla" er slut.

Alt i alt har vi haft en dejlig uge i din villa hvor vi havde god plads til 12 personer, 7 voksne og 5 børn, der repræsenterede 4 generationer.

Min mor på 82 år boede i lejligheden og hendes eneste klagepunkt var en stikkontakt der ikke virkede- ellers "kunne hun da godt bo der et par uger mere".

Vores to sønner og deres familier boede i stueetagen og der var fin plads til dem der. dog var de ikke så begejstrede for at sove på sovesofaen i biblioteket, men det er man vist aldrig rigtig glad for - en seng er meget bedre at ligge i så det er ikke kun i din villa det er sådan.

Vi var ikke så begejstrede for møblerne i stuen - de er store og ser meget hyggelige ud, men vi syntes ikke de var så komfortable at være i.

Ude i patioen kan jeg sagtens forestille mig man opholder sig hele tiden i sommertiden - der er da pragtfuldt. da vi var der var det for køligt til at sidde der bortset fra midt på dagen og en enkelt aften hvor vi fik prøvet din nye pizza ovn en dejlig aften hvor vi desværre havde det lille uheld jeg har talt med dit servicefirma om.

Jeg ved ikke hvad man kan gøre for at de store møbler kan fremstå mere indbydende - de var meget støvede i puder og hynder og bagefter ærgrer det mig lidt jeg ikke bare fik vasket betrækkene - det havde nok gjort en stor forskel.

Vi oplevede at dine el-artikler fremstår lidt slidte - opvaskemaskinen fik vi kun til at virke godt på glasprogrammet og vaskemaskinen har lidt problem med balancen når den centrifugerer. Kaffemaskinen er slidt ved filterholderen og den er meget længe om at lave kaffe.

Oppe på 1- salen hvor vi havde taget ophold, var vi helt fortabte i din udsigt - både når det var lyst og om aftenen - det er nærmest "formidabelt" - det blev vi aldrig trætte af.

Igen - alt i alt en dejlig villa som vi havde meget glæde af i sidste uge.

venlig hilsen fra

Kurt og Lisbeth

Owner's Response: Kære Kurt og Lisbeth Det glæder mig at i havde et godt ophold i villaen og at i var tilfredse med det meste. I sommer har vi ordnet de fleste af de punkter som i nævnte. Nye puder i møblerne i patioen og alle hvidevarer er blevet udskiftet til nye i bedre kvaliteter. Tak for jeres tilbagemelding og velkommen tilbage en anden gang. Med venlig hilsen Hans-Kurt
