About Steve

Originally from the UK [Midlands] I have lived and worked in Spain since 1993, I just love Spain, the people, the food, the climate, the outdoor life and quality of living.

I have done a lot of work to the villa over the years and equipped it with everything my guests should need for a relaxing holiday.

I live close by, so I’m on hand if you have any problems, otherwise you won’t see me.

Steve purchased this villa in 1999

Why Steve chose Sitio de Calahonda

I bought the villa because of its ideal location, at the head of a quiet Cul-de-sac with no passing traffic, very quiet and private, yet only 2 minutes walk from all amenities and 5 minutes walk to the beach.

Also 2 minutes walk away is the taxi rank and buses to either Marbella of Fuengirola with are just 11km away.

Puerto Cabopino and the Artola Dunes are just 4 minutes drive away, or you can walk there along the beach or the boardwalk.

Greenpeace recently stated that the coast from here to Elviria is the only true tropical coastline in the whole of Europe

Puerto Banus is also 15 minutes drive away, a good place to visit, but not so good to sleep in the area!

What makes this villa unique

Being all on one level it is ideal for families with children of all ages, and older folks who are not so handy on their feet or don’t like stairs.

The swimming pool has a 60cm raised surround so young children cannot fall in

Also ideal for guests who don’t want to hire a car, or drink and drive.

Lovely villa in great location!

  • 5 of 5


What a fantastic holiday we had – 5 adults and a 2-year old – the villa was ideal and even better than advertised. Spotlessly clean, spacious, well equipped and cared for, a home from home.

3 good sized bedrooms – the master bedroom has dressing room area and en-suite. Separate bathroom/shower for other 2 bedrooms.

As we had no desire to hire a car – location was key – the villa is within walking distance to shops and bars, beach and bus stops

Spent most of our time outside, around the pool, which was just what we hoped to do.

Great BBQ and inside/outside dining areas, lovely gardens, new sunbeds, pool was amazing (we didn’t pay to get it heated and as was in June were thankful as it helped to cool down), inflatables.

Very private with not being overlooked and very relaxed.


Prior to booking, during and after our stay – Steve (owner) was fantastic- helpful, friendly and unobtrusive. Gave us good tips on golf, places to eat out and visit, taxis and tips on where to shop. Deposit refunded days after we were back with a nice thank you email for leaving the villa so tidy, nice to be appreciated.


Large Mercadona supermarket and smaller supermarket selling Iceland and Waitrose goods – three minutes-walk away from Villa. Also cafes/butcher/bars/gift shops etc. in same area.

Special mention must go to Jammy Olive Café – what a gem – we used it for breakfast after trips to the beach or for a late lunch - always lovely.

Also SoBar for cocktails, friendly service from the Scottish guy, we didn’t have food but saw lots going out and all looked great.

Slowboat Chinese and Little India – we ordered takeaways to eat by the pool and thoroughly enjoyed, we also walked the 3 minutes to the shops one evening to get takeaway pizzas – all good.


As this was planned as a relaxing holiday we didn’t plan to go too far or do too much. The golf at Milaflores was good however at Cala Nova we found it to be excellent.

Bus service at bottom of road – one way to Fuengirola etc and other way to Marbella.

We had a good day out in Benalmadena, taking the cable cars to the top of the mountain and taking in the falconry display (1pm and 5pm) - really enjoyable trip.


Would not hesitate to book this villa again. Not one gripe!

For us - location and facilities were key as we did not want to hire a car, we never imagined that we could get somewhere so accessible while remaining so private and tranquil.

Fantastic villa and as described

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by this villa. It is very clean and beautifully maintained. It was perfect for our group of four adults and two young children. The raised side on the swimming pool added to the safety of the children. In my opinion the photographs do not do the villa justice. The living area is bigger than it appears in the photos. The outdoor dining area and BBQ are magnificent. The kitchen is fully equipped and also has a full set of plastic/outdoor dining plates, beakers etc. Steve (owner) is very friendly and shared useful information with us about the local area and amenities. He was incredibly helpful in assisting us on our departure as we were let down by our transfer company. We had a wonderful time and particularly liked the absolute privacy we had both in the garden and around the pool area. I would definitely recommend this villa and I would return.

Entspannung pur! Tolle Villa mit beheiztem Pool

  • 5 of 5

Steve´s Villa ist eine Oase der Entspannung. Der beheizbare Pool, der überdimensionierte Gas-Grill und die schön eingerichtete Villa selbst schaffen ein Wohlfühl- und Urlaubsgefühl ab dem ersten Tag!

Auch wenn Calahonda nicht unsere favorisierte Stadt geworden ist, so hat man sehr gute Möglichkeiten das Umland zu erkunden und ist innerhalb kürzester Zeit in Malaga, Gibraltar, Ronda oder Marbella.

To put all in a nutshell: We will rent the villa again!

Great Villa with Pool & Garden in Calahonda

  • 5 of 5

This is a great villa, close to all amenities, for a family holiday. I would have no hesitation in recommending such a well planned, clean & well maintained property. Steve, the owner, close at hand to deal with problems - not that there were any. Supermarket 2 minutes walk, restaurants 5 minutes & bus stops 10 minutes. Would not normally visit an Irish Restaurant in Spain, but BarBoru well worth a visit for quality keenly priced food & wine.

Lovely Villa as described on website

  • 5 of 5

My party of six adults spent 11 days at this extremely well equiped villa. We found the villa exactly as described on the website. The kitchen had everything you could ask for. When we discovered the microwave was not working I contacted Steve and he replaced with a new one within hours (extremely good service).

When we arrived we found the villa very clean and the outside area was well kept in fact we met the gardiners one day who were very friendly and helpful when we asked them about all the lovely trees, plants etc in the garden.

There were six loungers and a lovely shaded area where you could get a bit of respite from the sun. The swimming pool was just the icing on the cake.

There was a large back garden as well. In fact you could get the sun all day long if you could stand the heat!

The TV had all the UK channels which was a bonus as our men could watch the football.

There were poolside towels so that cut down on your luggage allowance which was very helpful if you fly with budget airlines.

All in all we had a great time at the villa and would recommend to friends if they wanted to rent a villa in this area. We used the public transport service which was just a 3 minute walk from the villa. We also used the local supermarket which was a 2 minute walk from the villa. The villa was also very well secured.

Just like home

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay! The villa was very well appointed, making our extended stay feel as if we had the amenities of home - a much appreciated comfort while traveling with small children! And, the beautifully maintained garden and patios meant that we could maximize our time in the fabulous weather! We appreciated your helpfulness prior to and during our stay. Everything made for a fantastic holiday!
