Saladillo Benamara Villa Rental Photos and Description

Traditional beach-side Andalucian villa with pool, 4 bedrooms, sleeping up to 8

Casa Casquet is a quaint 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa sleeping 7/8. All rooms and accommodation are on ground level. The living room, dining room and master bedroom are air conditioned to help with the summer heat, and a log burning stove provides a warm focus during winter months. The fully fitted kitchen includes a dishwasher, and a washing machine is to be found in the adjoining utility room. TV, CD, DVD and iPod players are provided.

Outside, the villa is surrounded by mature hedges creating a private and secure environment. The main outdoor area faces south, and it is here you can enjoy outdoor living at it's best, whether it is in (or lounging beside) the pool, or escaping to the shade of the patio for lunch or a siesta. A BBQ area is situated at the side of the villa.

This property is ideally situated for those who enjoy a beach-side location in a comparatively quiet area.

This area is also known as the 'Costa del Golf', and with good reason. There are numerous courses within very easy reach including some of the best in Europe - Finca Cortesin and Valderrama, as well as many offering a less stern test.

El Saladillo is a good base from which to sight-see, with a number of the Pueblos Blancos within a short commute.

Great holiday in a great place

  • 5 of 5

We spent a really great holiday in Casa Casquet. Its a very clean and neat ville with a wonderful big swimming pool. The contact with Ian, the owner, was always friendly and nearby the house, Francicso, a very nice and helpful guy, takes care of everything. The beach is only a 100 meter walk and next to the ville there are supermarkets, Bars and restaurants. The description of the ville was matching, although the fotos don´t show entirely how lovely the place is. We totally recommand the ville and we´re planing to spend another holiday there because we got everything we expected and even more.

A great holiday for the Fisher family

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 6 adults and 3 children ages 1,2 3,we found the villa ideal especially being on one level.It was clean and well kept,we appreciated you supplying all our requirements for our grandchildren ie travel cots,high chair.

The outside space was ideal ,both the children and adults enjoyed the pool and making use of the BBQ area.

The weather was fantastic throughout our stay (24 May-3rd June)Wish we had booked for 2 weeks.

Loved it! Perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Villa for a month and had great time! The pool area is the best feature of the Villa. The pool is big and there is a lot of seating areas. Kids loved it. Inside there is four big bedrooms, a nice kitchen and a dining area where you easely can be 8 people. The standard inside is ok. It is not luxurious, but it has everything you need.

The service from the owners and the local agent is the best!

I hope that we get a chance to go back.

Sommerurlaub September 2015

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus bietet alles, was man für einen Urlaub benötigt an Komfort. Auf dem Grundstück hatte man von morgens bis in die Abendstunden Sonne und eine Erfrischung im großzügigen Pool war da echt klasse. Das Meer haben wir täglich in 2 Min. (ca. 150 Meter) fußläufig erreicht und es war überhaupt nicht überlaufen. Zwei Gaststätten waren auch gleich am Strand. Auch Lebensmittel konnte man im ca. 15 min zu Fuß erreichen. An der Tankstelle haben wir uns täglich Baguette zum Frühstück gekauft. Ausflüge mit dem Mietwagen nach Gibraltar, Estepona und Marbella waren auch sehr interessant.

Der Hausverwalter mit seiner Frau vor Ort war sehr nett, der Pool wurde mehrmals gereinigt und ein Gärtner kam zur Pflege des Gartens. Die Kommunikation mit der Familie Cahoon war auch perfekt und es gab keinerlei Beanstandungen.

Wir waren 10 Tage im Haus und die Zeit war viel zu kurz. Ich denke wir werden sicher nochmal ein Urlaub hier verbringen. Das Haus Casa Casquet können wir jederzeit weiterempfehlen.

Owner's Response: Hi C, I'm delighted you had a good time at Casa Casquet, and thanks very much for the review - it's always great to hear back from our guests. As you say, I think that the location is the villa's greatest appeal but we are undertaking some work at the villa over the winter months - some landscaping and renovations - so if you do decide to holiday with us again hopefully it will make your stay even more enjoyable. Thanks and best regards. Iain & Louise

Casa Casquet is a delightful private villa, set 150 metres along a quiet lane from the unspoiled sandy beach of Saladillo. The residential area of El Saladillo is one of the longest established on the coast, and as a result is a peaceful haven not blighted by high rise buildings or plagued with crowds.

El Saladillo is roughly 10 minutes drive from Estepona (West) and 15 minutes from Marbella (East), and is approximately 45 minutes by car from the nearest airport at Malaga.

The villa is ideally situated for anyone who enjoys a lazy beach holiday, golf (there are any number of tremendous courses locally including Finca Cortesin home of the Volvo World Matchplay and Valderrama of Ryder Cup fame), excellent restaurants (including some great chiringuito's a short walk along the beach), tennis, horse riding, water-sports, dolphin & whale watching, Selwo 'safari', swimming (the villa has it's own heated pool), or as a base to explore the region including the famous Pueblos Blancos.

Golf: Very convenient to a great selection of local golf courses, including:

Los Flamingos - ranked GOOD by

Finca Cortesin - ranked EXCELLENT, #10 in Spain, by

Marbella Club - ranked VERY GOOD by

La Reserva - ranked VERY GOOD, #7 in Spain by
