Further details indoors

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.

Further details

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 Andalucia 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.

Mijas Costa

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 Marbella is around 10 miles distant, 15 mins by car.

"Everything you could want from a holiday house with an incredible view"

We've had a wonderful 2 weeks. The house is of an exceptionally high standard. Everything you could possibly want is included with lots of unexpected extras. The outdoor area is not done justice by the photos - it is huge and the outdoor kitchen is perfect. We were barely indoors! But the real selling point is the view of which we never tired.

"Genuinely luxurious - NOT"

I have deliberated over whether to give this anything higher than a 3. The others in our party wanted to give a 2. We stayed in the villa for a 2 week stay in early June 2013. My group has rented many… More

This is very disappointing and at odds with nearly all other recent reviews. Why did this group take over one year to make a review? Spanish electrics are not as in the USA or UK but we have a new circuit breaker in place so downtimes are very rare. We have never claimed the pool is heated, in the Spanish sun it is extremely useful to cool down! I don't know what this group of ladies expected but 95% of other European guests have truly enjoyed our villa. C'est la vie.

"Excellent Villa"

Our stay at Casa Poco Loco was really enjoyable.On arrival we found the villa very clean. The terrace has a fantastic view and we spent most of our time there utiliising the barbie and outside fridge and freezer. As previous Villa owners we can definately recommend Casa Poco Loco.

"If Carlsberg did villas, it would probably be the best villa in the world!"

My husband, our 3 boys (aged 9, 7 & 4) and I stayed in Casa Poco Loco for 1 week. We had a fantastic time. The villa surpassed all expectations. It has everything you need and more. We loved the outdoor kitchen - we probably only used the indoor kitchen once! The pool and the jacuzzi were excellent. Although the pool isn't heated, it was still warm from the sun. The best part of the villa is the is spectacular both day and night. In the evening, it was lovely to spend some time in the jacuzzi then lay down on the sun-loungers and look at the stars. A car is a must in our opinion. There are lots of places to visit and we would recommend visiting Mijas town in the mountains...very picturesque. It was a very relaxing holiday....probably the best family holiday we've had in the sun. We will definitely go back again.

"Beautiful Villa"

I have deliberated over whether to give this a 4 or 5 star review - if there was a 4.75 option I think I would have gone with that! Firstly, this villa is absolutely beautiful with undeniably breathta… More

"A fabulous villa with great outdoor living facilities"

The villa was superbly positioned in terms of view and accesibility for supermarket and restaurants.
The outdoor kitchen was important to us as we like to bbq at lunch, this was excellent.
A great find which we would certainly look to revisit

"A place to feel at home"

Casa Poco Loco is a house that is thought through very well and offers plenty of space for the extended family or a group of friends. It is well-maintained and you notice that the owner keeps improving it. It is therefore easy to feel at home. The outside space with the kitchen and BBQ is great; you can spend the entire day outside without having to run up and down. Nothing is missing and everything works. We also enjoyed the choice of TV channels and the W-LAN - it keeps you connected. It is tempting not to leave the house all day … but when you do, there are plenty of things to discover, and the location of the house is ideal.

"Wonderful villa, superb location, just a couple of things need sorting"

We stayed here in Feb 2014 for a week, when the weather was cool in the evenings but warm during the day. The villa is fantastic, big and spacious and very well-equipped; note that only one room has … More
