|Further details indoors|
We have installed Fujitsu General, remote-controlled air conditioning which is super quiet and can also be used to provide heating in the cooler months. The house is next door to the pool so it is easy to keep an eye on the children from your terrace. We also provide a good quantity of glass and tableware, a cocktail shaker (essential) and we have a full range of baby and toddler items available. The house will be cleaned to a very high standard prior to your arrival and bedlinen and towels (except beach towels) will be provided. There is also a safe for your valuables. We work harder to create that home-from-home for you.
|Further details outdoors|
All of the garden areas are communal and tended daily by our own gardener. The pool is cleaned daily and the water tested to ensure good quality bathing. There is also a shower. In the lower garden area are two swings and a slide and these are very good quality, hardwood construction. There are many palm trees, jacarandas and a feature bougainvillea hedge at the lower entrance to Mi Jardin.
There is a shopping centre at the entrance to the urbanisation and this has a Carrefour supermarket, a bank, Italian restaurant with great pizzas to eat in or take away, tapas bar, dry cleaners, internet café,excellent Indian restaurant, hairdressers and Spanish bar/ restaurant. All of the cafés and restaurants have tables and chairs outside on the pavement so you can relax with a drink while you watch the world go by. The white Andalusian village of Benalmadena Pueblo is only 3 kms. from the house and you will enjoy strolling through its peaceful cobbled streets and taking lunch at one of the many cafes and restaurants.
The Costa del Sol region
This part of Spain is protected from the northern climate by its 'Sierras' and so enjoys a fabulous climate all year round. Travel inland a little way and you have the traditional Spain, try a day out at El Chorro and swim in the freshwater lakes. The city of Malaga is a gem with its paved streets, the famous Picasso museum, the cathedral, its many restaurants, cafés and bars. Try Malaga's oldest tapas bar 'Logüeno' (Log-wen-o) or stroll along the Alameda Principal with its many flower stalls, the colours are overwhelming. Then you can walk up the paved Calle Larios and maybe take coffee and 'churros' in the Café Central in the Plaza de la Constitución. Head further east and you have Nerja with its famous caves.
At the heart of Benalmádena is the old white Andalusian village of Benalmadena Pueblo with its narrow streets with flowers growing everywhere, so much colour. The Plaza de España is at the heart of the Pueblo and has cafés, restaurants, craft and souvenir shops and the fountain of the young girl, the symbol of Benalmadena. This too is the real Spain as the locals go about their day-to-day business and some of the older village folk sit on a bench in the shade of the orange trees and just chat away to each other.
For the children there is Tivoli World just a bus ride away in Arroyo de la Miel and a little further on is the World famous Benalmadena Marina which has won worldwide acclaim for its architecture. The marina has more activities and restaurants than I can list here so put it on your itinerary.
Within walking distance of the villa is the Altos del Higueron shopping centre which has a Carrefour supermarket, a bank, an Italian restaurant which has superb pizzas to eat in or take away. Then there is the Taberna del Frasco bar, a dry cleaners, internet café, excellent Indian restaurant, hairdressers and the very stylish 'Punto Rojo' restaurat and bar. All the restaurants and bars have tables and chairs on the pavement so you can sit and sip your 'mojito' whilst watching the world go by.
For those who like to shop there is the excellent Corte Ingles at Mijas Costa and this has top names at surprising prices especially during the sales. Within this beautiful department store is the Hipercor supermarket which sells everything from air conditioners to zip fasteners (couldn't think of anything beginning with Z). Within Hipercor is its own bakery, delicatessen, superb fresh fish counter and Spanish takeaway food counter where they will prepare you a paella of your choice and they make a gift of the 'paellera' - paella cooking pan - to you: superb!

"Home from home with extras - sun and pool"
The villa is well situated but a car is a must - this is indicated in the advert so not a shock. It has parking a very short stroll from the front path which shields you from very infrequent vehicle movement by a well kept lawn.
Terrace is spacious with a great awning for shelter, good size table and plenty of chairs and lounges. New seat cushions were delivered during our stay although there was nothing to fault of the previous ones.
To save on weight you can hire pool towels from John & Kay to use around the terrace and the pool which is in a fantastic gated lawn with play equipment showers and mature trees. Taking a book and sitting in the shade next to the flowering bushes was idyllic.
The beds are comfortable with good quality linen. There is ample more drawer and wardrobe space for the max number of adults and oodles of coat hangers too.
The living area is big, light and airy with ample seating, shelves and drawers for all the other bits we use on holiday all with a sea view.
Security was not a concern nor flying insects or stray lizards when windows open due to discreet window nets, added to the sun shutters and the wrought iron bar work we felt safe all day and all night. The security does not reflect a need in the area just sensible planning of the owner.
The kitchen has all you need to cook anything from a boiled egg to Sunday Roast with matching cutlery and crockery with no chips or dubious staining. The sea view from the kitchen made cooking a must.
The washing machine is in the porch so it can be used at night with out too much disturbance to sleeping.
The electrical equipment, tv, dvd, docker is good quality and the Ipod docker saved on a phone charger too.
We had a great stay, any hiccups which were minor and just 1 of those things were dealt with promptly by John and the community neighbours were helpful too.
Carrefour and Lidl are a drive up the hill, in expensive and well stocked.
My husband and I had a great stay and are returning in Sept 2013 too.
Thank you Jeanette and we have just installed a new washing machine so even quieter! John, Kay and Michael
