Overview

Coin Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom plus sofa bed, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4-5

Set in the middle of our Andalusian fruit farm just a short distance from the Costa del Sol, the apartment has fabulous views over the neighbouring countryside. We’re surrounded by citrus groves (pick your own fruit!) and we’re very close to the bustling town of Coín; shops and restaurants are only a kilometre away. Our pool is yours whenever you want it, and it’s perfect for young children. Please visit our website at www.hotspain.com for more photos and information.

Why choose Casa Romana?: Our holiday home has been purpose built for use by our family and holiday visitors. It is unlike the average country property in that it has marble floors and granite work surfaces and is furnished to a high standard. It is fully equipped for everyday living, and as we live next door, you can ask us for any help or advice you need. The accommodation includes free wifi - with the big plus of a wonderful climate and peaceful surroundings.

Coín is just half an hour to the coast and Marbella and is the perfect centre for enjoying the beauty of the Andalusian culture and countryside. The coast has many great attractions, while near Coín you can enjoy hill and mountain walks, riding, tennis and golf. Ronda, Granada, Córdoba and Sevilla are all within easy reach.

Coín is set in the green and fertile valley which is the garden of the Costa del Sol. The views are spectacular and the region offers the visitor a perspective of the real Spain which is so different from the lifestyle of the coastal strip. Here you can enjoy the best of all worlds; the beaches, water parks and the attractions of the coast, while living in rural peace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A beautiful setting for the villa. We very much enjoyed our stay here. Can't think of a single thing the kitchen lacked! It was lovely to sit on the terrace most evenings and we were amazed at the temperatures for the time of year. Many thanks for your kindness in driving us to a doctor when Sam was ill. Because of his illness we were not able to make use of the pool - but we will next time! Thank you both once again for your hospitality and for the thoughtful gift on the morning of my birthday! Hope to see you again soon.

An idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

We found Casa Romana to be in an idyllic location, with beautiful views over the Andalusian countryside. The property is set in the owners’ fruit farm; we were able to pick our own fresh oranges every morning, make orange juice in the supplied electric citrus juicer and drink it on the terrace overlooking the orange groves.

The owners were very hospitable, the typed sheets of information about the property and the recommendations on sightseeing, restaurants, local supermarkets and shops were most welcome as was the homemade marmalade and cava.

The property was clean, tastefully decorated and exceptionally well equipped including a dishwasher, a television receiving British terrestrial channels, DVD player, a sound system we could plug our MP3 player into and shelves full of books both fiction and helpful travel, recipe and language books, as well as maps and leaflets on attractions close by and further afield. There was also a free WIFI Broadband connection and we found the laptop we hired from the owners to be very helpful to research sightseeing locations as well as keeping in touch with home. It is also possible to swim in the owner’s pool but we did not use it ourselves.

Although the views from the terrace are rural, the town of Coin is close by (we walked in a couple of times) with a range of supermarkets, shops and restaurants. There are at least 3 excellent restaurants within walking distance in the cool of the evenings; The Bohemia, El Fogon de Antonio and Casa Paco. We can also recommend the Hostal Santa Fe on the far side of Coin.

The location was only about 35 minutes from Malaga Airport and ideal for sightseeing. Trips to Granada (book in advance for the Alhambra!) and Gibraltar were about 2 hours by car and the spectacular drive to Ronda should take less than an hour if you don’t stop to take photos at every opportunity as we did! We also visited Seville, using the new Avant fast railway link direct from Malaga. Also, of course, the many and varied attractions of the Costa del Sol are only about 40 minutes away.

We have since bought our own electric juicer to keep at least a small part of our holiday experience alive!

Owner's Response: The computer's a new offering and Bob and Debbie were the first to use it. Very helpfully they added some new links, and we hope that future visitors will do the same so that we can build the best database in the area of places to go.

Peaceful, but location great - & lots of oranges

  • 5 of 5

We were the first in the villa that year I believe, but despite this we had weather to die for (topping 32c) and the villa was spotless. Kristina left us an (extremely welcome, after a warm drive) bottle of cava in the fridge and a bowl full of fresh oranges, lemons, and avocados on the side. Such a nice way to be welcomed to a new place. The town, Coin, is not a lot to look at, but you don't need it to be - it offers everything you need and the supermarket (Mercadona) is big enough to get lost in and stocks very tasty 2euro wine and 7 euro rum - so you don't really need much else..

The villa itself is big, light and well-equipped and has views of the orange groves and mountains, over which the sun would rise - which suited me very well when I had to get up early to study some mornings. The pool has an even more spectacular view and suited us well - I think we used it over 10 times in the 5 days we were there!

Phil would entertain himself with the wide selection of crime novels from the bookshelves, and I with the wide selection of sub-bathing spots.. only a quick email to Kristina, and 5 minutes later a dozen perfectly ripe avocados would be on our doorstep - a very attentive and welcoming hostess to match the villa itself.

Thank you, Kristina and all, for making us feel like we had a place to call our own. We felt truly and absolutely relaxed and at ease.

As for trips, I recommend Marbella - a very short but spectacularly beautiful drive, and the town itself is not as we expected (full of drunk students) but rather more traditional - the old town a little bit like a much lighter version of Las Ramblas in Barcelona! The beach was wonderful, and a wide selection of bars. We also went to Granada and the Alhambra, a very long drive but worth seeing if you enjoy historical landmarks. The streets were lined with merchants selling moroccan style jewellery, bags, clothes and trinkets - which I loved. We also stayed in Malaga town a couple of days before coming to Coin and I would recommend that to anyone visiting the region.

Excellent break

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation would defiantly recommend. The villa is set in a beautiful location with stunning views, loved the fact that we could go and pick our own fruit from the orchids and make our own juice. We were on a short to stay to an area I used to live in, to catch up with friends. Sorry that we missed meeting the owners kristina, maybe meet next time in the next few months. There was only one fault, it would have been nice to have sun loungers around the pool and the pool was not very clean. It was a very nice quite area we were not disturbed in any way.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. I am so sorry about the pool. After the winter it has been a problem. My cleaner hovered it every day and sent me mails saying it was fine . This is only an explanation, but not an excuse ! I would certainly give you a discount, if you return . Yours Kristina

A hidden gem of a locatio

  • 5 of 5

Just back from our fifth visit to Casa Romana feeling totally relaxed and de-stressed. The apartment is on the outskirts of Coin, a rural Spanish town about 40 minutes from Malaga airport. A pleasant walk into town. there are many restaurants,bars and supermarkets therefore no need to drive to Malaga for supplies. The accommodation is fully equipped inside and out for everyone's needs and we made very good use of the juicer on a daily basis for oranges picked from the garden. There is an abundance of other fruit including avocados to enjoy.

Coin is ideally situated to explore the coastal towns of Marbella, Fuengirola and Estepona and inland Andalusian cities of Granada and Seville.

Kristina the owner is very approachable and helpful without being obtrusive. It is very reassuring to know she is at hand for any assistance if required.

We are booked again for later this year and look forward to visit number 6.

Sadly not for us.

  • 3 of 5

Not what we were looking for. We never used the pool, as it was located away from the holiday rental and in front of the main house - due to a family bereavement during our stay we felt that it was not appropriate to impose. The neighbour's dog barked day and night, which was obviously out of the owners control, but nevertheless extremely disruptive. The cleanliness of the rental also needed attention, but we know we visited during a difficult time and didn't feel comfortable mentioning it.

On the positive side the fruit trees outside were beautiful and we loved squeezing our own orange juice. The kitchen was also very well stocked and the local supermarket superb. We have taken a long time to post this review, but have felt on retrospect that these issues needed to be raised.

Owner's Response: I am always sorry to hear about problems that could have been dealt with at the time. Obviously it was a stressful time for me with my husband's death. Regarding the neighbour's dogs , a solution has been found. I am glad you enjoyed the fruit. Kristina
