Overview

Axarquia (Costa del Sol) Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms sleeps 4

This stunning Casita which translates as cottage is located in a Hamlet belonging to the incredible hilltop village of Comares.

It is modern in build but traditional in style and has lovely arches and rooftop terraces that help make it a little more special than the average newer builds and looks as though it has stood in its grounds for decades not just years.

The cottage lends itself to being a honeymoon or romantic retreat for couples as it is positioned in a lovely secluded spot with one neighbour below, comfortable positioned far enough away with no one looking into your space or pool area.

The peaceful location is enhanced with lovely valley views and river walks in the dry summer months.

There has been no expense spared on the interior fittings and the quaint Moorish influenced furniture and fabrics combined with chunky wooden tables and cupboards are totally in unison with a great modern kitchen which is the focus of the front of the cottage and allows you to cook and look at the views whilst sipping the odd glass of wine.

The lounge area is spacious and airy and located in the back of the cottage with lovely patio doors leading to the great 8 x 4m pool, which has steps in one corner if you are toe tester and not a diver!

The terrace around the pool allows you to sun bath with one eye kept on the pool which will tempt you in on a regular basis.

The upstairs has 2 lovely bedrooms both with en-suites and the master bedroom also has a bath. The master bedroom has its own terrace, great for that morning coffee or orange juice whilst you contemplate the day ahead. Though the other bedroom with twin beds has balcony windows and pool views. There is also a lovely roof terrace for extra privacy and sunbathing.

There are mosquito nets on the windows and fans provided so the cooler night breeze will lead to a good night’s rest.

There is plenty of alfresco dining space for sun worshippers and shade seekers alike and you will find yourself moving around the outside of the cottage until the views and spot are in harmony with what you desire.

A car is really essential for this style of rental as you drive up towards Comares and then turn off 10 minutes down towards the river and the cottage on a mainly tarmac road, so a walk up hill in the summer months would be difficult but the location gives you tranquillity, peace and seclusion in equal amounts.

Although we believe it is a romantic location we are happy for families of four or groups to rent but we feel an £50 per week per person is fully justified for the extra numbers.

Come and discover this lovely cottage nestled below the comforting security of its nearby big brother village Comares and I guarantee you will return and recommend.

A truly relaxing break in a superbly eqipped villa

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a truly relaxing break in a beautiful villa, then this is the place to stay! The journey 'off the beaten track' is worth the effort because, once here, you feel far away from all the stresses and noise from the outside world. The owners have gone to great lengths to ensure that the villa is beautifully furnished and fully equipped with everything needed to ensure your stay feels 'homely' and not an everyday holiday rental. With plenty of terraces to sit for meals and drinks and the superb pool means we never ventured far and didn't need to. We found that the stunning hilltop town of Comares, a short drive away, catered for all our needs and once there had amazing views to the coast one way and mountains the other. Special thanks to David for all your help and advice and for making us feel very welcome.

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at this gorgeous villa. The weather was very hot and sunny, the views were fabulous and we made full use of the pool. We enjoyed watching the wildlife, particularly the swallows and dragonflies and were entertained by the local goat herders. We would recommend a trip to Table Mountain for food and the views from Comares are spectacular. The villa has all the amenities you could want, is beautifully furnished and David & Jacqui provided a welcome pack. A perfect 2 weeks of peace and relaxation - what more could you want.

Absolutely stunning property and location. No words can do it justice. If you want to completely relax and enjoy stunning views and crave peace, this is where you need to go.

My advice is just get there but be prepared to be sad when you leave!

A little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a week in this fantastic property. We have rented in various locations in Spain and elsewhere and can confidently say this is one of the best houses we have been to. The location is stunning, with superb views and absolute peace and quiet - just birdsong. The facilities are excellent, particularly the well equipped kitchen. The surrounding area is beautiful, with lots of interesting walks and trips, and good restaurants within easy reach. We hope to be back!

Wow Wow Wow!

  • 5 of 5

A truly beautiful casita in a beautiful part of the world. We had the most wonderful, romantic few days in this stunning property. The property has clearly been a home at some point and very much feels that way, as appose to other places we have stayed which felt like they were just holiday rental properties - everything that you need is there, and everything is TOP quality. This place has been loved by its owner, and judging by the guest book, by everyone who has ever stayed there. The pool was lovely (although nippy in October) and the terraces and balconies made perfect dining spaces in the evenings and idyllic breakfast spots in the mornings! We felt well and truly spoilt staying here.

We also had visitors - cats AND dogs, but they were all friendly and always a little bit peckish! Being animal lovers we welcomed them.

I hope we will return here one day, we adore the area and have visited many times, but Casita La Huerta was something special, and our long weekend here will stay in our memories forever.
