About Ted

We left South Africa at the end of the 90s and looked for "the ideal" spot in Europe which in some way reflected the lifestyle and weather pattern of SA. Someone mentioned the south of Spain and we never looked back. The millions of visitors to the coast annually is testament to this. We built our home in the quiet surroundings of Finca Del Lago, just outside the village of Cancelada, overlooking Los Flamingo golf course. The house is spacious, surrounded by large lawns and provides all the luxuries for a great holiday, as a home away from home. The house is a few minutes from the beach and Cancelada Village is approximately half way between Marbella and Estepona.

                                                              Amazing villa , peaceful location ,welcoming hosts who are on hand to help with any issues.

                                                              Sarah D.

                                                              15 family members stayed here, we all had a great time. Villa is so spacious with lots of room. Pool was lovely and big , lots of outside space. 30min walk to closest village , we didn't have a car but I would recommend it, although if your organised the villa owners have an account with a local supermarket who deliver ( I would suggest placing the order before you arrive as we could only get a delivery time 2 days after our arrival date) a few nice restaurants in the nearest village .

                                                              Excellent time

                                                              Paul S.

                                                              We have now returned after a wonderful time together with my family at Villa Africa. The spaciousness of the villa, the grounds and pool, the location and quiet made it a great way to relax and enjoy each other’s company – our main objective. Our group spanned the ages of 6 to 92 and found the villa, extensive grounds and pool to be ideally suited to all of them. With good weather thrown in it made for an excellent holiday. Shades and awnings on the terrace meant that virtually all our time was spent outdoors including all meals.

                                                              The gardens were kept in very good shape and the attention to the swimming pool on a couple of occasions was valuable and essential for safety and enjoyment.

                                                              Lili looked after us very well and consulted us and kept us informed on those essential maintenance issues that crop up from time to time. Communications with Ted and Lili were prompt and efficient.

                                                              We mainly wanted a “chilled-out” week around the villa so did not venture out far apart from shopping, though some did the Caminita del Rey walk not far away. The local Mercadona supermarket’s fresh fish was very good.

                                                              We can thoroughly recommend this villa.

                                                              Better than we ever could have imagined.

                                                              Luke G.London

                                                              Where to start? From the moment we arrived at Villa Africa we were welcomed with open arms. We arrived slightly earlier than the check in time noted but Ted, Lillie and the cleaners sorted us out straight away. Ted even took a few of us to get 'supplies' from the local Lidl. A real friendly bloke and bended over backwards to ensure we had everything throughout our stay. The Villa itself is simply breathtaking. It has everything you could imagine. It catered to all 17 of our needs, and some. The taxis are very accustomed to the place, so taxi's weren't a problem. €20 to Puerto Banus, €40 to Marbella strip FYI. Can't thank them enough for allowing us to stay, it made the trip what it was, and that's down to Ted and co. We will be coming back, that I can be sure of. Once again, from myself, the stag and the lads, thank you so much. I can't recommend this place enough.

                                                              Fabulous stay in a beautiful villa!

                                                              Sophia F.

                                                              17 of us girls stayed at the villa for a long weekend. The villa was stunning, and every bit as good as the photos suggest. Everything was very clean and the owners were accommodating at meeting us for arrival. It was a little bit hard to find but well worth it, and there is a lovely wine bar 15 minutes walk away in the village. The owners also helped us find a yoga instructor to come to the house for us. If I had one criticism it would be that the utensils/pots/pans could do with updating in the kitchen. Over all we loved our stay and didn't want to leave! Hopefully we will make it back one day.

                                                              Perfect - I want to go back

                                                              I could not have asked for a more gorgeous venue to spend time with my friends

                                                              What a place

                                                              andy s.

                                                              We where a mixed party of 17 who had looked for somewhere to celebrate a joint 40/50th birthday, I had done some research and chose this property as from the website it looked as if there was plenty of room.

                                                              We booked a transfer from the airport but 1 of our party hired a car and went ahead with others whilst we waited for the transfer.

                                                              Initially there was a minor problem with finding the Villa on the Sat Nav and the transfer driver had a similar issue. But when we did arrive it certainly had the WOW factor.

                                                              We where met by the Owner Ted who handed over the keys and fobs so as we could open the gates.

                                                              All the rooms are big double beds most with ensuite

                                                              There where 3 bedrooms on each floor in the lower floor was also a games room with table tennis pool and fussball.

                                                              The kitchen is big and had plenty initially we couldn't get the dishwasher to work but worked it out eventually (you need to hold the button on the right down for several seconds)

                                                              I would advise at least 1 car if you are getting food shopping ect

                                                              There is a BBQ at the side of the house and on 2 of the 3 days we where ther we used it, the ALDI shop did some nice kebabs and chicken sausages

                                                              The pool is nice however a bit chilly lol

                                                              All in all a great property and we are certainly looking at coming back either with a couple of families or a group of friends.

                                                              The owner leaves his mobile no invade of emergency or any other problems

                                                              Ps we got taxi's to Peurta Banus in the evening and they where around €20

                                                              Thanks Ted for a memorable weekend
