Casa Secreta, as the name suggests, is a secluded detached villa - yet it combines privacy with accessibility. With a garden overlooking a lemon grove, it has stunning views of the coast and surrounding countryside as well as a heated floodlit pool and fully equipped BBQ Terrace. Electronic gates lead into a private driveway, which provides ample parking space, with the lovely village of Mijas a five minute drive away. Mijas La Nueva itself has two communal pools, tennis court and bar with restaurant, all within a short walk from the villa. The villa has been beautifully furnished with a well thought out ground floor living area, with white marble floors. The main entrance opens into a spacious hallway and dining area, with steps down to a large south facing lounge with patio doors leading onto the terrace, garden, BBQ and pool area. There is a television and music room,with full UK TV BBC ITV Channel 4 , leading off the lounge with panoramic floor to ceiling windows. There are three first floor bedrooms, all south facing.

About Donald Macdonald
We live in London and have enjoyed many visits over the last sixteen years to this lovely location. The nearby village of Mijas is charming with really friendly local people. Our pool and garden maintenance has been carried out by the same people from the village since we bought the Villa! Throughout my business career customer satisfaction was always the focus and I have carried that forward in retirement to this holiday letting project. Although the Villa was in excellent condition, complete with designer furnishings when we acquired it we like to add improvements each year to enhance the holiday experience. We have recently refurbished the kitchen, bathrooms and upgraded the garden and pool furniture.
Donald Macdonald purchased this Villa in 1999
Why Donald Macdonald chose Mijas
We chose this villa because of its privacy, its stunning views and it's proximity to the pretty village of Mijas.
What makes this Villa unique
Although within the attractive urbanization of Mijas La Nueva the villa has a very private and secluded location, overlooking lemon groves looking down to the coast and Mediterranean Sea.

We had an amazing time at Casa Secreta. The villa had great views and was secluded without being remote. Not overlooked at all and a short (ish) walk up the hill into Mijas (or 7 Euro taxi!). Good size garden and the heated pool was great. The kids had the time of their lives in what is a very special villa. We made fresh lemonade using the lemons on the lemon trees (as well as garnishing the odd g&t). I cannot recommend this place highly enough.
Perfect and peaceful villa
We all loved the villa, the location was extremely private and the pool and villa were perfect. Midas is great but don't try the walk up to the town in full sun, it's tough but a lot easier coming home but that may be due to the beer😃 All you need for a great break.
Beautiful , secluded villa. A real gem.
My family and I have visited Casa Secreta three times so far . We absolutely love it.When looking for our perfect holiday we look for stunning views, beautiful surroundings , privacy and great location. This villa ticks all the boxes. A short car ride from Malaga brings you to the villa up in the mountains next to the white village of Mijas. The villa itself has everything you need for a relaxing holiday where all you want to do is lounge by the pool, eat outside and enjoy the views. The pool can be heated but we have never needed it. The property has a secure gateway and is surrounded by trees which give you total seclusion and safety. The villa is always spotlessly clean and the pool and garden well maintained. There is a lovely sized lounge and dining area but in three years we have never eaten indoors. Bliss. A five minute walk from the villa will get you to the communal pool and the Carob Bar which is situated next door to Villas in Mijas where you collect your keys to the villa. We have eaten a couple of times in the Carob bar and the staff were very welcoming. A 25 minute walk gets you into Mijas village centre where pretty shops can be found up and down the quaint streets and around the main piazza. Restaurants in abundance with great sea views and friendly waiters.
When booking this holiday I found the owner Donald and the local agents to be extremely helpful . All contact was by e-mail with prompt replies and helpful hints to help us enjoy our holiday. I would recommend you give this villa a visit and like me you will be back for more.
Many thanks Helen for that very helpful review.
Looking forward to your 4th visit!
We had a great week at Casa Secreta chilling by the pool, barbequing in the evening and just relaxing in the peaceful surroundings of this lovely and spacious villa. Everything is spotless and well maintained. Lovely private outdoor area with a view. About ten to fifteen minutes drive to supermarkets in Fuengirola. Mijas is walkable – about twenty five minutes. The villa had more or less everything we needed. The kitchen is well equipped. Barbeque and outdoor furniture are in excellent condition and the beds are comfy. Wi-fi is excellent and the air-con very efficient. The communal pool and tennis court are five minutes stroll away, the Carob Bar is definitely worth a visit for a meal. Casa Secreta ticked all the boxes - so glad we booked and we all agree we'd definitely stay again. The local booking agents were very helpful - very straightforward booking process, great communication and excellent directions to get there! Highly recommended.
Very pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Secreta.
Hope to see you again in the future!
Great Summer Holiday!
Casa Secreta is a wonderful villa. The peace and tranquility of the area mixed with great views is a must for those visiting Mijas! We have used a number of villas in the Mijas area and Casa Secreta was one of the best. The property was very clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this villa to my friends and relatives. The pool was big enough for the 6 of us and outside area with the bbq was great for many a dinner in the evening. The restaurants in Mijas village are very good and value for money. The people are very friendly and very good with children.
Best holiday ever!
