Villa overview - owner's description

Detached villa located in the hills with a beautiful view of the sea and the coastal towns of Vélez-Málaga (11 km) and Torre del Mar. The villa is ground floor and has a well-kept interior. Next to the private swimming pool with sun terrace you will find lounging chairs at your disposal.

The villa is modern and has a light feel and has a spacious, modern kitchen. The master bedroom has a private bathroom with the shower in a round room. The other two rooms share a bathroom. The house has a spacious terrace and around the private pool is a sun terrace with that beautiful view.
There is a pleasant trail to the top of the hill (1 km) where you can find the ruins of the Bentomiz castle, a former Moorish fort. A fantastic spot for a picnic in the shade of the olive trees. In Algarrobo-Costa (9 km) you'll find wide beaches and long boulevards for a perfect and pleasant stroll. Do your shopping in Torre del Mar (15 km, market on Thursdays) or in Málaga (45 km) of course. This city has a beautiful shopping street in its bustling center and lovers of culture will be very pleased indeed.

We were received by Pepe in the village and then followed him to the house. My partner speaks and writes Spanish well and that helps with calling and calling. A lot is written on the site about that road. If you see photos on the site with that amazing view, then you understand that you are on a mountain and that the road to that house is not a dual carriageway. But it is easy to do and largely paved (concrete) There is, incidentally, another route that is also easy to do. When you drive back from the house, go straight ahead where you would turn left. There is a pole with a plastic bottle on the left side of the road as a marker. The accommodation is fantastic. Spacious, modern and wonderful swimming pool. And then that view. Awesome. We also read on the site that kitchen inventory was limited. That apparently helped. Very extensive inventory. Even a cheese slicer. Everything was clean. The hard beds we found excellent sleep. On the last day we only discovered a storage room with all kinds of extras. From cool box to high chair, extra mattresses, etc. In the immediate vicinity there is not much to do. To the beach at torre del mar is 25 minutes drive. Beautiful beach, fast deep sea. We also drove around a lot and visited places in the morning, had a nice lunch somewhere and then back to that lovely house, swimming, watching the sea, and in the evening first a beautiful sunset and then a beautifully lit Velez-Malaga below you. We have had a wonderful time and can heartily recommend this house

The house had a fantastic view of the sea and mountains. By previous comments we were already aware that the road to the house was not obvious. We have therefore rented a jeep, which was not superfluous. The road is not reserved for every driver. Fortunately my husband is a good driver, because I did not dare to drive there. We thought we had a lot of barbecuing in the evening, but the bbq is too small for that. In previous comments it was also mentioned that the beds were very bad. Before that, I called a Belvilla employee and he confirmed that negative comments are always being acknowledged and addressed. Well I can now confirm that we slept on a boxspring frame of Ikea (nothing against Ikea) without mattress, something paper thin on it. Even our 3 children complained about the beds. The air conditioning, only in the living room, does not make up for the rooms. It was reported that the people of the key service could only learn Spanish (Pepe and Maria, by the way, very friendly). In itself no problem, with some years of Spanish lessons behind and google translate this works fine. However, I find that the owners easily get rid of it. A small information folder with information about separate waste or not, where depositing, doctors, ... would be welcome. In the end pay 3,130 euros + 75 euros costs. Luckily the view and nice pool made everything right.

The period in which we are going is really quiet. The pool is cool, the high season is over.

Hautphenne Jul 2017

The road to the villa is not only the last 200m bad but the full road from down to the villa, once upon a while it is worth to forget about the 15 minute ride. The accommodation is good but the person who guides you and guides you (Pepe) speaks Spanish only, what a find out how everything works, results (sorry) The surroundings are pretty beautiful. A hairdryer and mosquito net could be a plus.

Peters Nov 2016

PEPE was extremely friendly but ....... not speak a word about the border that were very difficult to communicate maakt.De beds of very poor quality !!! Knives forks spoons, kitchen utensils is very but very minimal .. As you far from civilization afzit quick incident the evening, a restaurant visit is not possible. We had been without water 2 days and 1 night no power. The villa is beautifully situated there can not argue about it. Still had very good time.

Overlaet Oct 2016

It is the second year in a row that we booked this villa. This villa is for 6 persons. We were with z 'n two. Beautifully situated on a sunny slope with super view over the sea. The last part of the way there from Arenas is delicious adventure. Be sure to rent a car which is slightly higher off the ground, like a Juke or Captur. Meanwhile found more nice restaurants in Torremolinos, Torre del Mar and Marbella.

Spacious house with stunning views of sea and mountains. Very quiet area. Beautiful sunsets. Unfortunately, some maintenance to the furniture inside and out and pool. DVD player malfunction. Beds were very poor. TV channels via satellite many German, but BVN. Sympathetic keyholder Pepe speaks only Spanish. By car 20 minutes from beach / sea / spa. Mountain road home full of potholes, drive in 1st or 2nd gear. Last leg home sharp and very steep slope! Wifi fee, works well. The white village of Nerja is 40 minutes away and very cozy, well worth it! Granada 1.5 hours drive. Malaga 45 minutes. Despite the stunning views we would not rent this house again because of the way and very bad beds.

Vellekoop Sep 2016

Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Unfortunately only accessible by bad, steep roads. Rent a diesel car.

Winkel Aug 2016

The view and the house make their way back gut🙃

Rijper Jul 2016

The road to it was ready to swallow ff creep-by-stealth-through road from Arenas. Luckily there was another route to the coast that went a bit quicker, but not for people with vertigo. After a few days accustomed route well and it was home, despite not quite tip-top shape, a haven of peace! Highly recommended for those looking for peace and not fear me for a mountain route. A 4-wheel drive is recommended, but we came up with our rented Ford Focus there too!

Popping Sep 2015

We have a fantastic week polite Vista Maravilla. With unique location and breathtaking view of sea and mountains. The journey towards it was chilling spanning steep roads, for drivers with nerves of steel. Fortunately, the manager drove us, otherwise we would probably not even found.The house was lovely, fully equipped, with a cozy outdoor kitchen terrace and a nice pool. Only thing was that we found the beds rather rickety.

K. Steenssens Jul 2014

Super House: beautiful, clean, beautiful location \/ view, all present, nice swimming pool, room for much improvement. had a great holiday! Note: Cars must be sharp enough to the mountain roads.
