Previous owners used this villa as their second home. Five 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 and our new large telescope brings everything into close up.
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. Last year we added a full size table tennis table and a large gas barbecue - both have proved very popular. And for 2014 we have put in, due to popular demand, a large telescope on a tripod.
|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 that offers two lounges 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! Last year we have added a table tennis table and a large gas barbecue. You are welcome to use gas from the previous clients but once exhausted we would ask you to replace the bottle (from nearest petrol station) so that the favour can be maintained for the next guests.
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 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 bookings in 2014 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.
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.
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.

"Superb Villa - You will not be dissapointed."
Well what can we say ! What a stunning stunning Villa with views that we never got bored of. We had the most relaxing family holiday we have ever had. Simply beautiful with fantastic views and surrounding areas. Our best family holiday to date. We had 14 days of full sunshine and it was a real effort to muster up the energy to even bother to leave the villa....in fact we didn't for the first 4 days as it was so relaxing. The Villa was sparkling clean when we arrived. This Villa surpassed our expectations and whilst the photos of the property are nice we dont think they do the external patio, pool and outside kitchen area enough justice. There is a very good quality gas BBQ which meant we literally lived in this patio area alone.
The Villas Air Conditioning was also really good quality which enabled a good nights sleep. If you are unlucky enough to experience bad weather, this Villa provides such a homely feel you will still be able to feel relaxed and on holiday.
Its a big world, so not one for visiting the same place twice, but this Villa really has tempted us and we have already recommended it to friends and families. Would recommend La Cala (about 2km back toward Mallaga) - Lovely beach, lovely village feel and lovely restaurants. I think one of the restaurants was called El Gusto (or similar) and the food was absolutely fantastic (its not a pizza and chips venue though if you have 'fussy' kids). One tip, if you are the 'get up and get at' type and you want to visit the local towns (Puerto Banus and Marbella) do it early as whilst all parking seems to be free, its finding somewhere to park freely is the problem !!
If you book your holiday at this Villa, you will not be dissapointed.

"A wonderful relaxing break ahead of Christmas"
“Really enjoyed our stay at Casa Poco Loco.
The accommodation was excellent and comfortable, while the layout was such that it gave us real flexibility, with plenty of room to "escape" for a bit of peace and quiet. The bedrooms were equally comfortable with lots of storage space. And everything, including bathrooms and kitchen, was clean and tidy on arrival - and easy to keep that way.
The view was stunning from the house and the pool area which had both sun and shade all day long. The pool itself was a good size (not just a dipping pool) and the jacuzzi added that touch of luxury. Particularly liked the fact that the pool area had its own outdoor "kitchen" with a fridge, sink and food preparation area. No need for any of us to miss out on the sun.
Have already recommended it to friends and family.”

"Spacious villa with stunning view."
The villa was easy to book, and we were provided with a useful welcome pack.
On arrival it was better than expected, very spacious inside and out.
We were greeted by a friendly agent, that was most helpful. Plenty of restaurants and shops. All close to the beach. Found the locals very helpful too. I most enjoyed sitting in the hot tub looking at the stairs.kids love the pool.
A great base to explore the area.

"Great Villa position trading off the views - with little attention to detail"
On our arrival we were met by Elly (the Spanish agency representative), I don't know if she was very busy or just tired as her welcome talk/ walk through was certainly NOT welcoming - the blinds … More
This is a villa that at the peak of the Spanish property market would have sold for over £800,000. As such there any number of special features that we feel need covering on arrival. So we employ a professional Managing Agency and at our cost have a personal meet and greet service at the outset of the holiday. What Ellie was doing was going through the various features and controls that are in place. Hardly negative at all - basically all the poor girl was doing was her job. Her reaction is 'these people wanted to find fault from the moment they arrived.' We have an ongoing maintenance programme. The sad fact is that guests break or damage items and don't tell us. Yet to date we have never withheld a penny from the £500 damage we collect upfront - probably just too nice! Dealing with some of these 'points'. How can we be criticised for having two lounges?? Most families appreciate the separate area for the children. Don't understand about the small 'dark' bedrooms. Two lead directly onto the pool and have light from windows on two sides of the room - maybe they kept the shutters, curtains closed? The beds are not 'rock hard' - my family sleep in them often very well. The first thing this group did was to demand 2 more sunbeds even though we do not advertise 6 sunbeds just that the villa sleeps 6. So, we went out and bought two sunbeds! And a parasol! Again not advertised. Good to know the villa was 'very clean'. It should be, after every client we spend at least 10 maid hours cleaning everything thoroughly. This group contacted us with just a very few of the points they now list. I took what they said about the lack of 'essential' everyday items at face value and arranged for my agent to repay them for anything that they had bought. In fact she tells me that every bathroom had a toilet roll, soap, the kitchen had black bags, dish washing fluid, a few dishwasher tablets etc. Just what you would expect, nothing more or less. There were a set of plastic items for poolside use but they obviously couldn't find them. We have had problems with the chlorine element in the pool. It can a bit trial and error but this is the first I have heard from this group about any problems of this nature. I believe that Timm our poolman, gardener has now perfected the right combination. It does seem strange that the next family came in the same day as this group left and have a wonderful time. If you want to find fault, you will inevitably find it. I see every rental from the view of the client and our only wish is for people to enjoy the great facilities and location. As I mentioned we have a continual maintenance programme to rectify any matters that may arise. Out of 40 rentals we have just these two reviews. I will now go out and ask previous guests to write a review if they have the time. The comments above are certainly not representative of the experience of the vast majority of rentors.
