Further details indoors:
Previous owners used this villa as their second home. Four years ago they employed the services of leading Spanish stylist, Paco Pena, to make this house as comfortable as possible. His unique touches are felt throughout in the style and quality of the furnishings. This is not your typical rental! The triple aspect lounge/diner makes the most of the sea views.
A few steps down takes you to the three bedrooms and bathrooms - each bedroom has the views of the Meditteranean and opens out onto the very large terrace, just metres away from the pool. All the bathrooms feature wetroom showers and are very modern. We saw loads of fairly ordinary houses until we came to this gem back in March 2012 when we bought it lock, stock & barrel! The secondary living area is very useful to give the children their own space. We will be constantly adding touches. Just in case anyone is bored or it rains (heaven forbid!) there is a PS2 with a variety of games plus a selection of traditional Board games for your use. Feel free to add to our library of books.
Further details outdoors:
The property is on three levels. You enter through secure gates with parking under a car port for two cars. You can also leave cars in the road. It is near the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Walk down a few steps to an entrance level featuring climbing plants and tub flowers, through the front door and you are into the main living area with separate wine store, lounge and two dining areas, kitchen and guest bathroom. There are exterior steps to the main terrace which has ample room for 6 sun loungers, adjacent to the private swimming pool and outside jacuzzi.
There is an outside kitchen for entertaining al fresco with tables and chairs. One small flight of steps down again and you come to the entrance of the 'vertical' garden with fruit trees etc. This does follow the natural slope of the land and the steps have no handrail so unless otherwise asked we intend to lock the gate for health and safety reasons. Although it is great to know that no-one can ever build in front of you it is not really usable. Sun bathe on the terrace!
During 2013 we will be adding a gas barbecue and a table tennis table for the terrace.
For the prime months we are looking for Saturday - Saturday rentals but outside of July & August we are always prepared to be flexible. Just ask. You will be met personally at the Villa by our Managing Agents, Gramova, probably Gracia or Ellie. They will show you round and explain how everything works. Our gardener/pool guy, Tim, may put in an appearance or two during your stay to ensure that all is perfect for your enjoyment. We change towels and linen weekly. For new bookings in 2013 we will be asking for a nominal refundable £500 deposit against breakages, damage, excessive cleaning etc. If you do damage or break something please let us know. The maid will check the inventory at the end of each stay.
The Agents always go through the inventory at the end of each rental but we like to feel that you will inform us of any mishap. We ask for a 50% rental deposit (non-refundable) and the balance 6 weeks prior to your start date. Once the deposit is paid - bank transfer works well - we will send out a pack with 'notes' on the property and full directions as to the location. It is just 25 mins drive from Malaga airport. Exact address for 'Google' afficiandos - 176 Calle Urano, Riviera del Sol, 29650, Mijas.
Looking for mainly minimum 7 day rentals. Could do less away from the prime months. Just ask.
Good to have decent notice but happy to move quickly for last minute bookings, subject ,of course, to availability.
The Costa del Sol region
I have to believe that if you are considering the Costa del Sol you know the advantages of a holiday in the region - great all year round weather, low cost and frequent short flights from most European airports, cheap car hire and currently a decent pound v the euro currency rate.
The Mijas Costa / Riviera del Sol area
Riviera del Sol itself is just 20 mins drive from the pretty picturesque cobbled streets of Mijas. Our villa is just 3 mins drive or 15 mins walk from a beautiful sandy beach with an interesting headland which offers long or short walks as you please. For a better and more detailed attractions of the area check out www.rivieradelsol.co.uk. Marbella is around 10 miles distant, 15 mins by car.

Any number of low cost airlines fly to Malaga airport all year round. We find that Easyjet offers the best times and deals more often than not. Car hire is incredibly cheap. Under £100 for 7 days all in is not uncommon. We recommend www.economycarhire.com.

We were pleased with, and surprised by, the unusual designer layout, giving bedrooms direct access to the lower pool and patio. While the choice of living and dining areas and the upper patio have... more
