“The perfect getaway in the sun.”

Reviewed 30 Aug 2015

This property gets full marks in every respect. The Casita is not only perfectly placed for a secluded peaceful holiday but is also only a 10 min drive from all the facilities you could possibly need. Stock up at the local supermarket in Coin and you will want for nothing. From the fully functional kitchen including dishwasher, beautifully tiled bathroom, and the totally private swimming pool. There is air conditioning in the bedroom and living room although we preferred to open all doors and windows, close the bug screens and enjoy the warm breeze that seems to come along the valley in the afternoon. The owner could not have been more accommodating and should you require assistance it's only a phone call away. I would recommend you take a hire car and the owner will be able to provide you with information of a good hire company in Malaga Airport!

“Gorgeous, romantic retreat”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2013

What a wonderful little find! We have been meaning to write this review for some time as our stay at the casita was truly delightful. After a troubled start with fears over the awful fires speading across the region and then having our hire car broken into and our hand luggage (including passport, work phones and car keys for the car sat at the airport...) stolen whilst in the supermarket (in Malaga) we arrived rather exhausted at the casita. Fortunately we were thrilled with what we found, it was immaculate, had all the mod cons one would not usually expect in a small villa and was in the most idyllic location. Here we virtually stayed for the entire week! We had planned to visit lots of places my partner had not visited before but in the end a couple of trips back to Malalga to sort the passport at the embassy and another to the police station allowed for a stroll around the old town and Picasso gallery. Then a trip to the white washed town of Mijas and one of the smaller beaches sufficed. Instead we cooked delicious meals, lay by the pool and read. Utterly perfect for our needs. The casita itself is very isolated with only one larger house next door and a farm and a few houses down the road. It is certainly not in walking distance of any amenities. This suited us perfectly as we loved the peace but some may not like this isolation. However the standard of the property is excellent and the fact that it was 10 minutes to several towns and then less than an hour to the larger cities was a real plus. The only difficulty we had was with the directions as anticipated by the owners! Perhaps a clearer set of instructions may help future guests but having been there I recognise how difficult this may be. Maybe a re-jig for easier following?? I'm very lucky to have a partner who is a geography lover and loves maps which was pretty essential in this case! We will most certainly be back. Thank you.

“Wonderful retreat in the hills but within easy reach of coast and country”

Reviewed 13 Jan 2013

Booking process for this property was very easy. Owners friendly and helpful and were happy to adjust my booking when I had to re-schedule holiday due to family illness. Casita beautiful inside and out. Lots of outside space to enjoy with gorgeous views and a stunning pool. Breakfast on the ample terrace was a joy. Very convenient location for Malaga Airport (car needed), yet within easy reach of the coast and beautiful inland villages and national parks. Variety of places to eat, and purchase provisions, nearby. Just been here for a second time and it will not be our last. Perfect for a couple. Best memory would be opening the bedroom french windows in the morning and listening to the birds!

“A BILL WITHERS MOMENT - JUST THE TWO OF US!!!”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2012

This Casita is the ideal retreat for a Couple wanting peace and tranquility. It offers everything that you would need for a romantic escape. From the lounge, kitchen, bedroom, en-suite bathroom and indoor fascilities everything is catered for including basic Sky TV. The outside area is excellent with a fine dining area and a plunge pool to die for after too much sun (even in October), The privacy is only surpassed by the excellent views in all directions of the Campo and Guadalhorce valley. We have been in several types of accomodation in the Malaga area and this is up there with the best. That first feeling you get when you enter a well maintained and clean property did not dissapoint and the small welcome pack was appreciated for a late arrival. From first contact to departure the owners were first class. We will be back!!!!!!!

“the perfect quiet retreat....”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2012

This little villa up in the hills of coin is just perfect for two, looking to have their very own private getaway. The villa facilities are excellant, a real home from home, but with the added bonus of sunshine, a private pool, gorgeous views, and complete peace and quiet. Your only a short car ride away from all the local resorts. There was always somewhere to eat if you wanted to go out, but well equipped local supermarkets if you wanted to stay in..... and an even bigger bonus for me was there was no mosquito's...... You do need a car to stay at this villa, but that is a good thing as the views driving around the hills and mountains are just gorgeous. The photos of the villa on the website are exactly as it is, so no disapointments there. I would definately go back. I just loved it......

“Little gem of a cottage”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2011

We enjoyed staying in this pretty little cottage. It was very well appointed and had everything we needed. The only thing we could have had more of in May was sun - it rained and was windy. On the sunny days having the pool was a real bonus. Very easy to get to the lovely towns and villages around including Antequera, Rondo, Malaga, Marbella - but the house itself is off the beaten track which suited us. The owners are very nice and were very willing to help when needed.

“Fantastic Little Hideaway”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2011

Great little place. Perfect for two. Everything you could want. Plenty of space. Kitchen very well equipped. Comfy sofas with freesat TV. Efficient air con. Comfy double bed. Lovely patio area with seating for 4 with views over hills. Lovely private plunge pool. Almost at the end of a quiet road with only the occasional sounds of horses from the rescue centre down the road. Car parking o/s front door for one car. Spiral stairs are a feature but no good for anyone with mobility issues/small children. Suggestion to owner. Put a bed settee in lounge and becomes great place for family of four or two couples. This is second time we have used it (using the large villa next door too for the rest of the gang!) and I would definately book it again.

“Wonderful - cant wait to return!”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2011

Had a great time in this cottage. It was so peaceful at night , we slept so well. The cottage was very clean . Karen who cleans it was very helpful during our stay. The welcome pack was a nice extra. We loved sitting by the pool and seeing the shepherd taking his sheep down the hill. Also loved eating dinner out by the pool. Loved Alhurin el Grande, it was nice to sit having a coffee with the locals during the day. Great restaurant there called Santiago which we went to twice. We went to Mijas while we were there, which was a lovely Spanish town in the mountains and also visited Puerto Banus, where we liked to sit people watching! Cant wait to go back, already booked for next year!
