Bars & Restaurants on The Spanish Costa del Sol: Within easy walking distance are: Hotel Tamisa, serving bar meals and a full A La Carte menu, outdoor & indoor pool, excellent views.
Restaurant El Golf, owned by Antonio, serving the best food available with a 9 euro lunch menu, looking over the lake on hole 5 Mijas golf course, the costa del sol in all it's Spanish beauty & my favourite.
Just up the road an Authentic 5 star Hotel Biblios.
Hoyo 19 offers drinks & cheap but good food, whilst opposite is the Restaurant Barbecoa which is truly Spanish & my 3rd favourite with a full menu of barbecued foods. Just across the river is La Crenza with Cerveza at 2 euro's a pint and tapa's to match 2nd best in my humble opinion.
El Sid is situated on the Spanish barbecue are, opposite my villa, the internet cafe & bar offers what the name suggests, but just beyond is a gorgeous spanish restaurant. All of the above are within 5 minutes walk and just up the road there are a further 5 or 6 bars and restaurants.
Firstly a word about the owner, Andy. A true gent who allowed me to stay Sunday to Sunday even though his policy is Saturday to Saturday, who replied to every e-mail almost immediately and who arranged to have a forgotten camera posted back to the UK at no charge, thanks so much Andy, we had a wonderful stay.
Andy's representative in Spain is Fabian, another great guy who is always at the end of the phone should you need any assistance.
The house itself is lovely, clean and spacious with ceiling fans and air conditioning in every room, lovely, comfy beds and a small but well equipped kitchen with a large fridge/freezer, satellite tv with all the channels you need (except sports) and a basement games room with pool table, fusball and darts, a chance to win a few euro off the kids.
Outside a garden with sun beds , table, chairs and a bbq. Short walk thru the beautiful garden takes you to the huge, clean pool.
In the evening, when the sun sets in the garden, move up to the roof, table and chairs and another 2 hours of unbroken sunshine.
Overall, my three girls and I loved our stay here, yes, there are a few cats about but my kids love cats and they're not feral, the cats, not my girls!..
A car is essential as the property is a bit of a distance from town but there is a shop and 3/4 restaurants within walking distance.
If you're a golfer, your fourball couldn't find a better spot as its right on the edge of Mijas golf resort.
For a peaceful, relaxing, comfortable way to spend your summer break I would thoroughly recommend Casa Cornski
Thanks again Andy
The house is set over 3 floors with a really spacious games room in the basement which has a pool table, table football, darts board & board games with a family table & a sofa. You go upstairs to the small kitchen & large living room which is comfortable & clean with patio doors which lead out to the outdoor barbecue area with a table & chairs which is shaded from the sun. The back garden really catches the sun & has sun loungers which you are allowed to take to the pool if you want to. The pool area is just beautiful, you walk through the tropical gardens & then you are greeted by a massive pool which is surrounded by trees, flowers & grass, with an outside toilet block & some sun loungers & benches if you don’t want to lay on the grass in the sun. The pool area also has a couple of showers, it is all really clean & the water is just so crystal clear & bright blue. The house itself was very clean, it had aircon in every room & ceiling fans in the bedrooms. The beds were all divans, not those nasty cheap camp like beds we’ve experienced at other places we’ve been to & you could tell that the whole house had been cleaned & looked after really well by Fabian, the property manager & his team, he was really helpful. We had a really nice welcome pack with all of those little essentials you need after a long journey. There is plenty of parking outside in the cul-de-sac which leads to the complex or you can park in the underground garages. The whole complex of about 30 houses was lovely, secure, clean & well kept, just like the house. As a family home you can’t beat this place, it even had stairgates at the top & bottom of the spiral staircase which leads up to the comfy bedrooms & the sun terrace which has a sun lounger, table & chairs on it which allow you to catch the last of the sun as it goes down over the hills.
As a comfortable safe & secure family holiday home we couldn’t ask for any more & we will definitely be going back. The house is massive compared to those little apartment’s we’ve all experienced, it has obviously just been decorated & the only thing that could really improve it would be a sea view. The beaches are about 5 minutes away by car & I would definitely recommend a car as the villa is perfect for The Alahambra, Porto Banus, Marbella, Rhonda (amazing place), Gibraltar is an hour and a half away & Torremelinos for the kids fun fair.
The restaurants around the house are all pretty good, we didn’t eat in, we loved Restaurant el Go
This is a relatively spacious property, however, it can hardly be referred to as a luxurious villa with outdated and tired fittings and furnishing throughout.
It is a not a villa but a terraced 3 floor townhouse, in the middle of the row of similar properties, overlooked by similar rows of houses less than 10m at the front and the back.
The grounds are nice - the pool, filled with salty water, is clean, and pretty large, but there are no seatings, loungers, or anything but grass so you will have drag everything with you the 50-60m from the house.
Parking is outside the development on the main road, 50m from the property, with muddy crazy paving between the houses, so expect a struggle to get your luggage into the house and keep the suitcase wheels intact.
The central spiral staircase going from the (tiny) roof terrace to the basement is so narrow that there isn’t even enough room for a hand rail, so expect to struggle if you bring heavy/large suitcases with you. It can also be a real hazard for young children.
The garden at the back is tiny, with very high hedges/trees that hardly let any sun in, and is overlooked from all directions.
The general feel of the place is that it can do with some money spent on it. A few examples:
- Shower rail in the en-suite bathroom held together with masking tape
- Broken floor tiles in living area
- Cushions in living room smell terribly
- Broken toilet seat in the en-suite bathroom
- The main bathroom has no windows (it seems to have had an extractor fan at some stage, but it is not there anymore or simply doesn’t work), and it smells pretty badly after a day or two of use.
- Many missing/dead light bulbs throughout. The basement is so dark that apart from using the pool table it is barely useable.
- Some rather dangerous looking shoddy DIY electrical work
- No hand towels or hand soap provided
- Remote control for AC in basement faulty
- DVD in living room missing remote, so unusable
- TV receiver in basement missing remote so unusable
- UK channels promised, but streaming device was disconnected and with a faulty remote, so nothing but several Spanish-language only free-to-air channels.
Not the owner’s fault, but in the neighbouring development (20-30m away) there are two dogs that are left outside in the garden all day and bark constantly.
There are many other similar properties in the area, and we are certain that you could do better than this one…
The details of the property were fairly accurate. It was clean and well maintained, with all kitchen utensils ect as expected. The owner was very helpful and provided lots of important/very useful information before we went, and was always extremely pleasant with any questions we had. The games room certainly kept our teenagers very busy in the evening.
I wouldn't say it was a luxury villa. It was very comfortable, lovely bedrooms, although the en suit needed a little TLC.
The grounds of the complex were very well kept, but being a complex there was often noise from dogs in other nearby villas, and there were many cats wandering through the gardens.
The swimming pool was a good size, but the temperature was baltic and it was dirty. The surface wasn't cleaned in all the time we were there. Our children never used it. It was probably due to it being the beginning of the season, and the fact that there had been little or no sun to warm it up.
A local shop sold everything, and was open almost 24/7 which was really useful. The local hotel, bars and restaurants were very good and great value.
The villa was good value for money, and we would return, although it was further out from the resort than we thought, so a hire car was essential.
We did enjoy our stay very much.
We are a group of 6 peolpe who travelled to Malaga in mid february. The stay at Andys House was perfect, we got all we needed from the accomodation, the game room is teriffic and a perfect place to spend the evenings when you don't have eny plans for outside activation. The location is central with ovly 30 minutes frive from both Malaga & Marbella. You have also the activities restaurants alongside the coast in Torremolinos & Benalmadena not so far away. I would defninitely recommend this house for evetybody, wether you are traveling with family or friends.
Our flight times meant that we arrived very late, but Martin kindly met us to show us in. The gorgeous scent hanging in the air as we went through the garden was a delight as we arrived. The tropical garden / ponds are quite a feature - as we realised when we saw them properly next day During our stay, we took full advantage of the bbq area/garden in the morning, swimming pool on return from wherever we went each day, sun terrace in evening (bbq’d a couple of times too) games room later. Just enjoyed a most relaxing week in and around Fuengirola with family and hope to return.
Close to the beach, water park, fun fair, mountains, gorgeous Mijas & lots of bars & restaurants within easy walking distance but quiet at night so that you can get a decent nights sleep. For families there is lots to do & for golfers you are spoilt for choice with 15 amazing courses within 15 minutes.
