Overview

About the property

Villa in Benalmadena Pueblo, Peaceful Location, 5 Minutes Walk To Shops, Bars And Restaurants

Our villa is ideally situated just 5 minutes stroll from the centre of the popular Andalusian village of Benalmadena Pueblo. Here you can find an abundance of bars and restaurants, both Spanish, English and indeed Irish to cater for all tastes. The ports of Benalmadena and Fuengirola are only a 5 minute drive away from the villa where plenty of nightlife and entertainment can be found. It's a short drive up to the sleepy village of Mijas if you prefer a more tranquil setting. We have a fully stocked kitchen featuring a washing machine, fridge and all appliances to keep you happy while on holiday! The villa also has air-conditioning. The pool area has amongst the best views in the village. The pool area also has a selection of loungers to relax and take in the rays. The outside patio is also fully furnished and dining alfresco with the Med in full view is an experience to die for. The gardens to the rear are fully stocked with orange and lemon trees which guests are free to sample.

Why Stewart Spence chose Benalmádena

Location Location Location

stunning views, great village atmosphere but also close to the biz of Benalmadena Port, Fuengirola, Torremolinos etc.

Walking distance to an abundance of restaurants, bars.

I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and America but this is where I can really relax.

What makes this villa unique

Heated Pool option (Additional Cost ). Few Villas in Spain Have this. Most villas require a car this is not the case with our villa. The views are to die for. Free Lemons and oranges from our own trees at most times of year.

View wonderful, accommodation great, but demolition/building site next door was intolerable.

  • 2 of 5

The property was more than adequate for my family's needs.Besides a fly infestation when we first arrived which needed pest control treatment, the heating in the pool cut out a couple of times and needed repairing and algae in the swimming pool we coped reasonably.The main problem was a building site next door! For all of our stay the noise and clouds of thick dust from first thing until early evening. It was almost impossible to eat outside .In consequence three of our family are seriously suffering with respiratory problems .So all in all what should have been a wonderful holiday experience turned into a bit of a nightmare.The local agent was told about the building site which was impossible to miss and had been going for some time before our arrival. He seemed unable to deal with the issue,although the smaller problems of flies and heating in the pool were addressed promptly. His comment about our problem was that he was only a phone call away but we had already asked him to deal with the building site situation and nothing had improved. In this country it is illegal to drill off rendering, or through walls and girders etc etc without water to ensure the clouds of dust do not occur and are not inhaled. It is common practise with hotels these days to forewarn customers about building happening in close proximity to the holiday accommodation. Surely this should also be a requirement for villa/ apartment owners to do the same especially since it has such a huge impact upon the holiday itself. Constant noise of drills, cement mixers, hammers etc aside, the biggest issue has been and continues to be one of health through the inhalation of clouds of dust. We paid the top price for this accommodation, had no notice at any time that it was next door to a building site and have returned home in a poor state. This really needs to be addressed as I would not want any other holiday makers to think that they were going to have a fabulous holiday , and then be faced with what we were. I do think its possible we were there at the worst time for pollution and noise. Had we been forewarned we would certainly have chosen another villa. This is an issue that needs dealing with promptly.

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah In response to your review, firstly although I already know from communication with your husband the issues with regard noise and dust from the next door property what was never mentioned by your husband was any issue with regard the pool or fly’s. I have since spoken to our local agent who has confirm that they was an issue with fly’s which was rectified and also that the pool heater had tripped, my understanding was he was there within 2 hours to sort the heater, my understanding is this only happened once. He has advised that whilst you mentioned Algae on the phone there was no evidence when he called to sort the heater. There was no further mention of this. These issues are within our control and apologies however as you will appreciate things will trip or break and it is how these are fixed is what counts. I hope you would agree that these were rectified quickly and effectively. This bring me to the main issue, the noise and dust from next door. I cannot agree with you more and I myself would not be happy with this disruption. The issue I have is that this is totally out of my control and whilst I contacted the owner whilst you were there and received assurances that this would be kept to a minimal this was obviously not the case. The property Next door was sold this summer and the new owners have been doing a lot of work, we were not aware of this and work involved at time of booking or indeed the extent of work until it was happening. When we were aware of the work this was monitored and we had be assured that the heavy work had been completed, I also asked tenants prior to yourselves who had advised there was not an issue, as you will see from reviews end September and beginning of October. As you will be aware I have been in communication with your husband in order to try and assist, his last comments were “So incredibly kind of you to offer an unlimited time offer too” I have also spoken to owner next door and have been advised all work will be completed by the end of this year 2017, whilst this is no consolation I hope you will agree that this was beyond our control. Best regards Stewart

Amazing villa with views to die for!!

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our stay at this beautiful villa In Benalmadena Pueblo and we had a wonderful time. The villa is all it says in the description. It is very spacious, light and airy, immaculate and the furnishings are lovely. The views are to die for!! The pool is great. The village is a delight and is just a short walk from the villa. There are lots of excellent restaurants in the village. We had 2 favorites this year - La Fuente in the Square and La Pala D'Oro. Although, to be honest, we have never had a bad meal in any of the restaurants.

There is a bus stop just in front of the villa which takes you up the mountain to Mijas Pueblo which is really beautiful or you can travel down to the coastal resorts in no time at all.

I would highly recommend this villa and would like to thank Stewart for the great service and support before we went and the staff he has on site who attend to every need if necessary. Can't wait to visit again!!!

Lovely villa. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our first villa holiday, travelling as a party of 8, ages from 7 to 70+. The villa and pool were lovely and clean. Location wise it was within 1/2 mile of a supermarket, 3/4 mile from Pueblo village centre. There is a bus stop at the bottom of the street which takes you into Benalmadena or up to Mijas. Stewart the owner was very helpful, and happy to answer any queries regarding our holiday.

Amazing 5* Villa & Service

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 8 nights at this wonderful villa. The villa is exactly as it states in the description. Very clean and tidy, modern and spacious, the view is amazing, it has everything you need for your holiday. Customer service is highly rated too as nothing is too much trouble, correspondence is so easy and either Stewart or Sage get back to you straight away. We have stayed at other villas but it would take a lot to top this one! The pool is a good size and the sun loungers are very comfortable too. Aldi supermarket is about a ten minute walk and has everything you need and if you cannot manage to carry everything back up to the villa you can ring a taxi from the supermarket, there are supermarkets down in the village too which stock everything you need are very cheap compared to the shops in Fuengirola or Benalmadena. There is an off licence and tobacco shop as you walk down on the left hand side where you can get wines, beer and spirits at very cheap prices. The buses and trains are regular if you want to venture out and about ( if you want to be down near the marina stay on the train until it reaches Fuengirola but if you want to be nearer all the lovely restaurants then get off at Los Boliches ). The villa is in easy walking distance to the village where there are lots of lovely bars and restaurants, highly recommend Sopranos which is on the corner as you head into the village on the right hand side. The square is a lovely place to sit and have tapas and a glass of wine. Taxis into Fuengirola are around 10 - 12 euros if you want to get there quicker, 10 minute drive will get you to the main part and Los Boliches beach is the best in the area, try and get onto the part of the beach where Paco has his sunbeds and if you get on the back row he has a sprinkler system which lightly sprays a fine mist of water on you which you will need when its as hot as it was for us. Dominiques restaurant is highly recommended in Los Boliches, also Sams sports bar for a bit of tapas or lunch. We will definitely be back to this beautiful villa, thank you so much Stewart for letting us stay at your lovely spanish home, thanks to Sage too and the cleaners who do a fab job of keeping you happy while you are there. Amazing !!!

Coast/Beach:

The easiest way to get to the beach is by the bus or in the car. We have an easy bus route that takes you from right outside the villa down to the markets, Tivoli world, beaches or port in around 10 minutes. The award winning beaches in both Benalmadena and Fuengirola are also a 5-10 minute drive. Our favourite is Playa Bonita Beach which is a gently shelving beach great for the kids.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Malaga, which is around 15 minutes away from the villa. We can recommend a company for collection and returns to and from the airport. Please note that a huge advantage of the villa's location is the fact that a car is not essential due to the proximity of the village and the availability of taxis and buses further a field

Distances:

2 minute walk to Benalmadena Pueblo. 5 minute drive to beach. 5 minute drive to ports. 25 minutes to Marbella/Puerto Banus. 10 minute drive to Mijas. Regular markets on various days.

In close proximity to the villa we have a Carrefour Express, Mercadona and a Lidl. A 10 minute drive away is the large Myramar Centre in Fuengirola where you will find the Eroski Hypermarket, also an 'English' Iceland close by and plenty of clothes and shoe shops, Zara, Mango etc.
