Villa Jacarandas is a delightful bungalow style villa. A small ramp can be supplied free of charge on request to make the villa 100% wheelchair friendly, the road entrance and gardens are already wheelchair friendly, the area around the villa is virtually flat. The lounge area has plenty of sofas to relax in and listen to music on the Stereo, watch satellite TV or maybe a DVD when you want an opportunity to get out of the sun. The dining area has a dining table that will comfortably seat 6 people. The fully fitted kitchen has everything that you require to prepare a simple salad - to accompany the steaks sizzling on the gas BBQ - or to a 3 course dinner! Situated in Calahonda the head of a cul-de-sac, but adjacent to shops, bars and restaurants and Calahonda beach, an ideal location for a relaxing holiday in the sun.

About Steve

Originally from the UK [Midlands] I have lived and worked in Spain since 1993, I just love Spain, the people, the food, the climate, the outdoor life and quality of living. I have done a lot of work to the villa over the years and equipped it with everything my guests should need for a relaxing holiday. I live close by, so I’m on hand if you have any problems, otherwise you won’t see me!.

Steve purchased this villa in 1999

Why Steve chose Mijas area

I bought the villa because of its ideal location, at the head of a quiet Cul-de-sac with no passing traffic, very quiet and private, yet only 2 minutes walk from all amenities and 5 minutes walk to the beach. Also 2 minutes walk away is the taxi rank and buses to either Marbella of Fuengirola directions. Puerto Cabopino and the protected Artola Dunes are just 4 minutes drive away, or you can walk there along the beach. reenpeace recently stated that the coast from here to Elviria is the only true tropical coastline in the whole of Europe. Puerto Banus is also 15 minutes drive away, a good place to visit, but not so good to sleep in the area!

What makes this villa unique

Being all on one level my villa is ideal for families with children of all ages, and older folks who are not so handy on their feet or don’t like stairs. Also ideal for guests who don’t want to hire a car, or drink and drive.

Being close to so many Golf courses my villa is an ideal base for golfers. For guests who want to tour,the road access from here is great, via the N340/A7 dual carriageway or the new motorway AP7 as the access is just away 2 km up the hill. Seville [Sevilla] and Granada are less the 2 hours drive away. Gibraltar 40 minutes, Cadiz, Tarifa and the Atlantic coast just over 1 hour.

Being so close to the sea the weather is very temperate, the unique micro climate in this area is cooler in summer and warmer in winter than the surrounding areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brilliant villa. Very clean and close to everything. The owner was nearby and on hand to help with any questions I had. The villa was very clean and well-kept. The pool was brilliant, we could keep an eye on the kids while relaxing on the terrace. There was sun and shade for everyone. There are plenty of restaurants, bars, shops and the beach, all within an easy walk. Very useful if you want to have a drink and not drive. Buses run from the main road just around the corner. The villa itself is very quiet so could not hear any noise from the road. Affinity Surrey

Just like home! Thanks so much for a wonderful stay! The villa was very well appointed, making our extended stay feel as if we had the amenities of home - a much appreciated comfort while travelling with small children! And, the beautifully maintained garden and patios meant that we could maximize our time in the fabulous weather! We appreciated your helpfulness prior to and during our stay.

Excellent villa, wonderful holiday

  • 3 of 5

Lovely villa, just as described in write up. The villa, pool and garden have been well maintained, the pictures are a good representation but it is even better when actually there. The little touches (like clocks in bedroon, well equiped kitchen, even candles and safety lighter) to the big things (like excellent gas bbq, TV with Sky and DVD player) make you feel at home straight away. Steve the owner was helpful and organised from booking, providing directions etc beforehand, there to meet and show us round, happy to give advice on the area and refunded deposit the day we left. The location is great, good size supermarket literally at the end of road, shops and resturants all in close walk. Would recommend the Jammy Olive Cafe (just round corner) and La Mandragora (in El Zoco centre). The beach just a short walk over the fly over (so no worries getting kids there safely). Whilst all you need is in walking distance when at the villa it is very quiet and peaceful. We loved our stay here, would recommend this villa and would definitely book again.

An amazing place to stay with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent 7nights in this Beautiful villa, this was our second visit. We first spent a week there over six years ago and knew we would always go back. The villa is clean and spacious and has everything a family with children could need, wifi and children's tv channel! The pool is raised so an added bonus with smaller children and very very private. Lots of outdoor space to eat relax and for the children to play. All buggy friendly! There are shops, bars and restaurants within a 2minute walk and a supermarket for all your grocery needs. A short walk over the bridge or under the pass and you are on the beach which again is beautiful. There are taxis and bus stops 2mins from the villa, we took the bus to Furengirola for a morning, which took about 15mins. The location is excellent as there is no hustle and bustle a very peaceful place yet not too secluded! Steve is always at the end of the telephone and happy to assist at any hour, we arrived past midnight yet we were still greeted warmly and Steve still

Had the time to show us the ropes!

We would highly recommend this villa, and Calahonda we loved our stay and will certainly go back!

Great place for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Met by Steve the owner on arrival and given the tour of the villa, everything is as described very well equipped, clean and of a high standard, the best place we have stayed in after many visits to the area over the last 12 years. Steve very friendly and helpful with information about the area.

Great barbeque for those days by the pool. Also many restaurants within walking distance Farfallas being one of our favourites always good food and the owner attentive and keeps good wine.

The new boardwalk on the beach has made a significant improvement to a walk by the sea to La Cala and seems to have increased business for the beach restaurants in the area, especially Antonio's where the bacon and scrambled egg breakfast is real treat after the walk there and fuel to get you back.

Without doubt we would recommend this villa for a family of all ages or anyone who wants a quiet retreat from the daily grind.

Beautiful Villa is Calahonda

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, clean, very private villa with all sorts of little extras to make your stay perfect. The private pool and bbq area are a real bonus which made our stay relaxing. The owner, Steve, is very friendly and helpful.

The villa is close to shops and the beach but is ideally located to explore the Costa del Sol. We hired a car and this villa made a good base to return to. So whether you want to explore and/or relax by the pool I would recommend this accommodation for a holiday.

Hopefully we will return as we had a great holiday! We are missing the bbqs and the pool!!
