Guestbook comments from the manager

Its been a week of bliss for the 2 of us. Its not often we manage to get away on our own and your villa is a big place for 2 - but we loved everyday. Highlights were the pool, country walks and the local villages. Thanks for making the villa just perfect for our arrival and being close by when help was needed. Home now but we won´t forget our escape to Los Pinos!!

Dominant positioned lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Loved the dominant position of the villa and the peaceful location, having rented villas in this region before, nicely decorated /Tiled bathrooms / En-suite nice size lounge good facilities in the kitchen, possibly a bit more ovenware would be a bonus and things like butter dish, cruet set would be good, but we had a relaxing enjoyable holiday and thought the rental was very good value for money, enjoyed the pool some respite from the 90 degree tempretures we had all in all a very good rental and really good value for money would highly recommend . We rented as a couple but all good size bedrooms for a large family .

Owner's Response: The location and position of Los Pinos is special and unique......Looking out accross the hillside and with nobody next door! Not isolated though, a 5 min drive or 30 minute walk and you can enjoy 2 excellent bar/restaurants in Los Ventorros village. Thanks for a glowing review.

Lovely peaceful villa with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Los Pinos early May 2015 with friends.

The villa itself is in a lovely location, with fantastic views and provides complete privacy. It is very well laid out, so that if there is a group, you are able to be together or find your own space both in and outside of the villa. Plenty of seating, tables and sunlougers in all areas. The kitchen is very well equipped with an abundance of plates, cutlery and every conceivable utensil that you may wish to use. Absolutely everything has been thought of and provided at this villa.

We paid extra to have the pool heated and I fully recommend this to people visiting out of season.

The local Table Mountain bar/restaurant is very welcoming with staff happy to provide local information. There is a comprehensive menu with high standard of quality and presentation at very reasonable prices.

Comares is a beautiful small town, with a small, but well stocked supermarket. To reach this you have to park beneath the town and then walk up the narrow streets so therefore probably not the best for a large shop. There is a lovely small town, Riogordo, about 25 mins drive away with on street parking, providing a couple of small supermarkets, butchers, grocers, etc. Benarmagosa is probably the best for a good sized supermarket and being able to park outside, again about 25 mins away. About 10 mins further is Velez de Malaga, a much larger town with several supermarkets including a Lidl.

I fully recommend this villa and found the owner to be very quick at responding to all enquiries. Thank you and will certainly be looking to stay again.

Owner's Response: A very thoughtful, imformative and well written review. Many guests are pleased that there is an option to heat the swimming pool outside of the main season for a small extra cost. Thank you Dianne and we hope you will visit Los Pinos again...

Very good villa

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Villa, had all the necessary mod cons etc, air conditioning, TV/DVD, 2 bathrooms, great views, plenty of shade, BBQ, great pool.

We were well looked after by Carl at Homeaway, directions were good (although we preferred the return trip to the airport via Velez Malaga & Triana). Went to Table Mountain restaurant in the local village (only walk it if your are feeling energetic), very good food and wine. We were also in Comares, a small town about 10 minutes away by car, fantastic views, local shop with everything you need, couple of bars, information office, bank, tobacconist and some restaurants.

We would recommend to friends (we were only 2 people), but there is room for 8/10 guests comfortably.

Might even revisit next year

Owner's Response: Its good to know that Aiden enjoyed his stay at Los Pinos and thanks for commenting on the facilities. With 4 bedrooms it is usual for more than 2 persons to stay - for 2 it would be quite luxurious! Table Mountain and El Molino bar/restaurants are a great find and very popular with our guests; convenient also at around 2kms from the villa....Ideal for a little walking excercise before lunch or a 3 minute drive. Thanks Aiden.

Great house, nice pool and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice holiday with our family in vila Los Pinos. The house had an amazing view, and the terrace with the pool was very nice. We visited Comares, and it was an amazing city with a wonderful view from the top of the mountains. We can really recomand the house, and the nice place to others.

Group summer holiday with 4 adults & 5 children

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful group family holiday at Los Pinos. The property was very well maintained and clean. It had great facilities and a standard size fridge freezer which was great to stock up on food for a few days without having to shop everyday. The layout of the house was perfect for us with the children including our youngest 2yrs. Arthur was very helpful when we arrived late on the Monday evening and the cot had not been delivered and had arranged for it to be brought to the house within a few hours. The only point to make is that the drive up to the house from Malaga & Velez-Malaga is very windy around the mountains/hills with several hairpin bends, this did cause a few issues with the children feeling sick several times. Just be prepared for the journey. We did get used to it as the holiday went on. Thank you again. We would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: I am very pleased that Michelle and her family consisting of 4 adults and 5 children found the villa perfect for their Summer holiday. A local contact provides a 24 hour service for emergencies and help is always on hand when help is required during the day. Los Pinos villa is located near the beautiful hilltop village of Comares so yes, an uphill journey around bends has to be made to get there....But considering the stunning area and the views - its worth it! Thanks Michelle.

The sandy beaches of Torre Del Mar and the Mediterranean coastline is 25 km - 30 minutes by car, with Malaga City and Airport within a 1 hour drive.
