Spacious, south facing villa with spectacular views of the Mediterranean, set in a mature, child friendly, green garden with beautiful large palm trees. Villa Estrella del Mar has a free form private pool, including air conditioning in upper bedrooms & Wifi - and is located in an exclusive residential neighborhood. The moment you enter the front door you will be impressed by the large, marble reception area and monumental, wrought iron stairway. The villa is approximately 250 square meters and features a large BBQ & outdoor entertainment area and has several terraces on various levels where you can enjoy the sun and the panoramic vistas. The beautiful furnished living room opens up to the covered, south facing dining terrace overlooking the garden and pool and has the marvelous blue of the Mediterranean as a backdrop.
For our winter guests we have central heating and a fireplace.
Costa Tropical: Villa Estrella del Mar is overlooking the blue Mediterranean and charming Salobrena, a typical white washed village with a historical Moorish castle on a rock. It is surrounded by sugarcane fields and fruit trees and has spectacular views in winter of the snow capped Sierra Nevada.
Salobrena has a long beach with a promenade, many beach front restaurants and a golf course but it still remained its unspoiled and original Spanish character.
This sunny part of Andalucia, called Costa Tropical, is well known for its exceptionally pleasant temperatures all-year round. Salobreña has the warmest temperatures during the winter in Europe, due to its southern location and sheltered position behind the mountains of the Alpujaras and Sierra Nevada.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Very spacious, garden space makes it very peaceful. Very well equipped. Overall thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Thanks Carol, we are glad you appreciate the peaceful garden of the villa and enjoyed your stay so much! We would love to welcome you back another time:)
Very spacious, well furnished and well equipped.
The house is lovely and very spacious and extremely well equipped. There are lots of games to play and a big box of Lego that we found very quickly. The decor is very nice. The pool is nice but not deep enough for my boys to continue working on their diving. We made use of the communal pool which is much bigger and deeper and is quite quiet so our boys could have a bit more fun in that pool. The view is pleasant although a little spoilt by a big house directly in your eye line. We preferred to sit on the bedroom balcony of an evening. Both terraces are lovely to sit on though. The details say 5 minutes to the beach. It is actually takes 6 minutes to get to the house from the main road up a very windy road and then a further 5-10 minutes to get to the beach. The property manager Gill was very nice and helpful and on hand any time we needed her.
Overall a lovely property.
Many thanks for your fine review. The pool in the garden is great to play in, float on an airbed and to cool off on a warm day. The large communal pool is indeed well suited to practice diving. An advantage of Salobrena is the variety of beaches, in atmosphere and distance, some nearby and others further away or more secluded. The beach of La Caleta is at the foot of the mountain and a very local experience. For sports fans it is worthwhile driving 10-15 mins to Playa Granada where -depending on the season- you can rent sailing boats, canoes and kite surf. The golfclub has its Los Moriscos clubhouse there as well which is great for lunch or happy hour to finish a fine day at the beach.
We loved it
From the moment you open the front door the villa takes your breath away.We took our daughters and their friends, ages ranging from 15 to 19 and no one wanted to leave after 2 weeks, 😞😞😞.
The villa is as shown on the internet but cannot portray the relaxing ambience.
The pool area is fantastic and the hammock a bonus, we used the barbecue and always ended our evenings on the outside terrace.We would definitely go back, this really is a "little"gem and Gillian the property manager was extremely friendly and helpful .
Great to hear your feedback and we are pleased that you and your family found the little things that make life a lot more relaxing such as the hammock under the palm trees, the pool and the BBQ area.
Hope to welcome you back soon!
Best Regards, Caroline
Summer Family Holiday
1 weeks family holiday with 3 kids from 13 to 6 years old, villa was perfect for all. 3 lovely bedrooms, great new kitchen, though not used much as there are so many wonderful restaurants close by. Great beaches to keep the kids happy close by. Lots of time spent relaxing by the pool in a quiet peaceful location. We recommend the villa and surrounding areas to all.
Thank you for sharing your experience of a stay at Villa Estella Del Mar- relax at the pool under the palm trees and enjoy time in the spacious villa is our goal for all guests in this fabulous region of Southern Spain. It's where you can enjoy Spanish culture, beaches, mountains and good food! We hope to welcome you back one day soon. Many Thanks!
Amazing holidays !!
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in august with my husband, our 2 teenagers and my mother. The Villa was perfectly equipped. The rooms were very comfortable and the swimming pool and the garden were very well maintened. The villa is very well located. 15 minutes from the most beautiful beaches of the Costa tropical. The supermarket is 10 minutes by car. We recommend the villa 100%.
Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Estrella del Mar. We strive to provide a relaxing setting indeed. The villa is only 10 minutes away from supermarkets and more importantly the beaches. Like back home location is key.
Great house, even better garden.
Very tastefully furnished and well equipped house with indeed wonderful views.
The garden all around the house is such a treat for city people like us. It was sometimes hard to choose where to sit, so many good spots.
We loved the big sized kitchen and cooking with the windows open, smelling the garden....
The area surrounding the villa, is quite and well taken care of (like a very regular garbage collection).
Enjoyed the village of Salobrena and had dinner in Almunecar a few times, which has a good and energetic city atmosphere. And ofcourse a visit to Granada ....just one hour.
Had a good time at the villa which is definitely also perfect for children: garden, pool, table tennis and there is even a big box of lego.
Villa Estrella del Mar is just 5 mins by car to the nearest beach. The villa is located on a hill overlooking the Mediterranean with the beach of Salobrena at the foot of the hill. A beautiful and scenic winding road will take you to the sea. The nearest golf course is only 8 minutes by car from the Villa. The green is next to the beach, as a matter of fact; the clubhouse is on the beach. You can enjoy a round of golf while the family builds sandcastles and relaxes on the beach. This combination is unique and sought after, you will be hard pressed to find this combination in other parts of the Costa del Golf. Needless to say that the weather is nice all year round so you can play in winter as well! Los Moriscos golf has 18 holes. In wintertime you can admire from the urbanization, the snow capped peak of La Veleta, in the Sierra Nevada, one of Spain's highest mountains, where you can ski in the popular ski resort Pradollano, only 65 minutes away!
