What a find..... the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday so far. The Cullimore family are the most inviting hosts you will ever meet. Nothing was a too much . It was difficult to leave the pool and the amazing view. But when we eventually did we discovered the beautiful beach at Nerja , it was so refreshing to jump in the sea, our six year old enjoyed snorkling and saw some beautiful fish. Our children (aged 6 and 5) were made very welcome they had enough entertainment to last several months, not the mention the dogs (Charlie, Bruno and Woody) and guinea pigs. The Cullimore girls looked after them so well and we really appreciated the babysitting facility which gave Steve and I an opportunity to hike up the mountain to Comares, there are few words to describe this 20 minute walk, apart from breathtaking. We will be back this time armed with our hiking boots. Lastly thanks to Jacqui for the best door to door driving directions ever. Its difficult to discrible this holiday to our friends, we just want them to see for themselves. Thanks Jacqui, David and Girls. See you again soon

Owner's Response: This review is so pleasing to receive, this lovely family were our first guests who were not couples and it was great that they enjoyed "Vine Ridge" and it family facilities as much as we hoped they would,we strongly believe that it takes a family to understand what another family need and require on their holidays and our philosophy appears to be working.Logic says that if the children are happy and content then so are the parents and this is what we aim to achieve at "Vine Ridge".We are so pleased that the reviews keep coming and the feedback is positive.Our children love the babysitting and it appears many of guests children love being looked after, it is not often on a family holiday that the parents can have some quality time to themselves.We look forward to seeing many of our guests next year and offering yet more facilities.

Great Owners, Superb Views, Very Homely

  • 5 of 5
From the beginning of the booking process David was always at the other end of the email to answer ALL my questions.
We arrived at the Villa and David and Jacqui were present to greet us. We have book an apartment and a villa just behind vine ridge (Petes place).
The apartment was very homely and had everything you need for a break, welcome pack was provided for a cuppa and the honesty bar came in handy (50c for a beer!)
Our friends arrived and had the villa, the villa is all lovely and shiny as you would expect from a new build, the pool and facilities are top class.
The drive in is an experience, but gets easier each time you do it. The drive is more than worth the stunning views.
I have to mention the dogs, I feel my soft spot was for the chico as he still has the puppy factor!
We made da day trip to Marbella and Puerto Banus with ease in the hire cars!

Owner's Response: A lovely review from a great group of friends that fully appreciated what Vine Ridge and our new 3 bedroom rental just above, that we now manage, has to offer.
It was a pleasure to make the booking process easy and lovely to see that they enjoyed the area and our 4 legged friends.

Thank you once again for a fantastic review.

super tucked away gem.

  • 5 of 5
after the most horrendous year we booked this place in the hope of sancturary and we were not dissapointed. david, Jackie, their girls and 'the boys' made sure our stay was welcoming and the best possible experience. our little studio was more than comfortable for ourselves and our 12 year old, it was immaculately kept. the views are STUNNING - i cannot emphasise that enough, so much so that on the 3rd day we set our alarm clock so we could sit out and watch the most amazing sunrise over the mountains.we are not birdwatchers, but can imagine this would be a good spot for those who are - we saw numerous eagles which were beautiful to watch. So, if you want seclusion but near enough to town and coast to get to, if you want the most caring and attentive hosts, a lovely little swiming pool with the added bonus of a fabulous bed on the patio that you can lie and look at the scenery from - this is the place!....we found true peace and calm, and we will be back. many thanks david and gang...your place rocks!!

Brilliant second visit

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit to Vine Ridge was even better than we had remembered. We expected/feared that Comares would have been "discovered" and be full of English bars offering fried breakfasts. Instead, we were delighted to find how little it had changed in four years.

From the studio, the views are stunning and the air is almost silent - lying by the pool admiring the view is a perfect way to spend the holiday. Although we hired a car - with good intentions to explore the area - it's extremely difficult to find the motivation to leave the pool. Whereas normally a need for bottled water or desire for wine/ice cream would do it, David and Jacqui have introduced a poolside honesty bar equipped with various drinks and a selection of ice cream. And there are homemade pizzas available to buy for an evening meal. So the hire car had very little mileage on it when we got back to Malaga airport!

The studio itself is very clean, very comfortable and perfectly equipped for self-catering. It's full of little homely touches (such as all the little carved wooden games) that go well beyond the usual sparse holiday accommodation. The Sky tv and the Wi-fi provide a link back to the English-speaking world should you need a dose of reality.

David and Jacqui are friendly and incredibly helpful hosts. Having arrived on a Sunday (no shops open) before a bank holiday Monday (no shops open), they let us borrow food and toiletries until we could get to a supermarket! Another talent of theirs is the foolproof directions from Malaga airport.

We got exactly what we wanted from this holiday - peace, quiet and relaxation. It's not (as my grandmother misheard from "Malaga") Magaluf but it's the perfect place if you want to see a more unspoilt Spain.

Thanks to David, Jacqui, the girls and the dogs for another brilliant holiday!

Owner's Response: A very kind and helpful review which proves that the added touches to Vine Ridge are being recognised and appreciated by our guests.
Comares is very unlikely to change due to its mountain top location and it always gets under peoples skin and draws then back to it's magical location.
We often say that guests discover Vine Ridge first and then Comares, but either way long may we both continue offering a lovely holiday experience.
Thank you once again.

Comares is a picturesque 'blanco' village uniquely nestling 739 metres above sea level, with amazing views from the sea to sierras.The village is reachable within 1 hour from Malaga and 1hour 20 mins from Granada.

Within the hour the amount of attractions available are numerous and diverse ranging from walks to go-carting , pony trekking to water parks ,beaches to historic cities , Spanish bars to English cinema , Air -condition shopping centres to cobbled street villages and golf courses to sandy beaches.

Nerja with it's quaint beaches and famous caves is also only 1 hour away and you can be parked and skiing at Sierra Nevada within 2 hours.

If you simply want to relax then the Andalucian countryside lends itself wonderfully to picnics, birdwatching , star gazing , painting and dramatic photography .

Many people are amazed as to the flexibility of this region of Spain which allows such a 'varied vacation' to be easily achievable within its boundaries .

Notes:
'Vine Ridge' Studio and Apartment are positioned next to each other and although designed to allow for a individual holidays they also adhere themselves to be booked together, because in total can accommodate 8 in total. Allowing for large families to have an 'Excellent' Value for Money holiday whilst allow independence within each rental. As we are also family focused please don't be shy in asking for anything upfront which may make your stay more comfortable for your children , remember we have been there ! With the added addition of the New Pool Side Studio in 2011, we can now accommodate 10 guests in total, so even larger families or groups can be catered for. There is still the aim though for guests to have their own privacy which has worked well in the past but as like minded customer tend to come this wonderful part of Andalucia, the communal areas such as pool, do work well. This advert is for the larger studio, please see our website for info. WWW.VINERIDGERETREATS.COM
