Lovely villa! Great views fabulous pool, everything we needed, Tony was very accommodating and helpful, wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this villa we were three couples and two children and was plenty of room for us all. The only thing that must be pointed out is even though the village of Benalmádena Pueblo is very close by there is a very steep hill to climb to get there, but a totally stunning village when you get there.Read more
We had an excellent time in the Villa la Sirena, 12 family members of all ages celebrating a 50th Birthday. Facilities were excellent, slight problem with the electric tripping when catering for a large number but nothing we could not overcome. The pictures on the website do not do the property justice, we would thoroughly recommend.Read more
Casa Sofia and its owners were brilliant. I cannot fault a single thing. Our flight from Southampton UK was delayed by 5.5hrs and our plan to arrive in daylight with enough time to go food shopping etc was dashed. It was a pretty stressful start to the holidays. Our children's faces when we arrived at the Casa Sofia helped make up for our delayed flight though. Everything about this place is awesome. Communication with owners was very easy, prompt, clear and welcoming. Almost don't want to write this review because I want to keep this Villa a secret ;-) Thank you team Casa Sofia.Read more
Fantastic. No complaints. From arrival to departure everything was most enjoyable. That goes for the whole family. The area also, restaurants beautiful villages. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa. Would love to return. Thanks to Rafael. The Harkins family.Read more
This is a nice villa with all you need for a relaxing holiday away from tourist areas, but still within easy driving distance of all. Rental and communication was simple with good directions to villa from airport, but advise the access road is steep and rough so be prepared upon arrival with a decent rental car. The villa is comfortable and airy with aircon to all rooms, a great pool and patio area with excellent views down to the sea. Catering is made easy with a good selection of cooking facilities including a small but serviceable barbecue to enjoy outdoor cooking in the cooler evenings. We went with a 6 month old baby and cot/high chair were supplied upon request. The pool was great with ample sun loungers and cushions to accommodate all and the property has several opening doors that provide a cooling breeze throughout the day. We enjoyed our 12 night stay at Casa Las Yucas and visited many of the sights of the coast and region, Torrox Costa is a particularly nice beach with a good promenade and plenty of restaurants to enjoy good food, it never appeared to be that busy. Well stocked supermarkets are within easy reach by car at Velez-Malaga and Arenas and the coastal resorts nearby. A good quality, private, quiet property, with excellent views that is situated away from busy tourist areas.Read more
We had the most wonderful stay at Casa 10.Communication with Jerry was great right from the start.We had very clear, accurate directions to the property. The villa has everything you need for your stay , we haven't stayed anywhere that was so well equipped. Good WiFi, big telly, English channels, comfy beds, great pool ! We love Andalusia and the area, Tolox is a lovely village with an easy walk from the villa to get your morning fresh bread, and a little market on a Wednesday, filled with fresh fruit and veg. we went from Tolox on a day trip to Ronda and Cordoba , both beautiful places. We hope to come back,as it was such a wonderful place to stay.Thanks Jerry !Read more
