About Mr John Wood
My wife and I live in Cornwall UK. Both retired with family and Grandchildren. We have spent many holidays with family in Spain and have always loved the weather, scenery, culture and food. We spend our winter months in the villa away from the cold and damp winter in the UK which gives us the best of both worlds. We especially love the villa because over the years it has become our second home, we spend many hours gardening in the warmer climate enjoying the peace and serenity it offers.
Mr John Wood purchased this Villa in 2002
Why Mr John Wood chose Torrox
The reasons for buying the property and its location were several, firstly we fell in love with the Costa Del Sol many years ago when holidaying with family and friends. The location of Torrox was so appealing being central to the towns, the coast and motorway. Torrox being advertised as having one of the best climates in Europe, which also sold it for us. The property location we chose for the reasons being local to villages, Nerja, Torre Del Mar, Caleta Marina, banks, post offices, restaurants and night life. It is also just off major roads with access to Malaga airport, whilst being away from all the noise associated with it. The views from the property are spectacular accessed via 3km from the town of Torrox via a part tarmac/concrete part dirt road used quite frequently by other owners.
What makes this Villa unique
The home with all its amenities, the private swimming pool, the peace and quiet, the half acre garden fully enclosed growing many species of fruit. The views of the sea, mountains, town and surrounding countryside and lovely walks. Torrox town is literally ten minutes away by car, Torrox Costa 15 minutes ride, where you have all the amenities you could need. There are gates at the entrance to the property giving it security, with ample room to park your vehicle. There are also more gates to keep the pool safe for young children. Internet and English programs on TV should they be required. The property was constructed for us by a local registered builder in 2002 and for both ourselves and guests we would hope it is home from home, with added benefits.

Fantastic return visit
This is the second time we have stayed at Casa Joanna and we loved every second yet again.
We have stayed in various villas in Torrox over the past 10 years but this one is definitely the best for us in our opinion.
We love the layout and the spacious feel around the villa and the pool.
The villa is totally secluded and not overlooked at all and the views are amazing.
The little things that also separate this villa from the others for us are the good, constant wifi connection and the large American fridge freezer with ice maker.
We will definitely be returning again next year
Thank you for your review. We are glad the Villa lived up to your previous stay and that you enjoyed your holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back with us again soon. John and Joan.
Peace & quiet & views!
Lovely well equipped & maintained villa, a real home from home & better than your average rental property. It's 10 mins up a bit of a rough track but the views once you get there are sensational looking over picturesque Torrox and down to the coast !! We were met and taken up to the villa by Steve who was happy to answer any questions and told us when he would be round to check the pool. Not the villa if you like to be at the centre of the action but if you are looking for a peaceful relaxing break look no further. A refreshing pool with a large level area around it with sunbeds and a good large brolly, a very welcome covered patio for breakfast and lunch and plenty of parking space. The house is very well equipped - plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, comfortable beds, spacious comfortable lounge with sofas, a good tv and music centre, everything you need in the kitchen. Some nice places to eat and drink down in the village especially in the pretty square with lots of umbrellas hanging to great effect. Very close to good road networks so easy to go exploring - we went to Granada on a cloudy day to visit the Alhambra and the coast is only 10 mins from Torrox. Good Wi-Fi and mobile phone coverage. We were only there for a week and came back wishing it had been longer!
Thank you for your lovely review. We are happy that you enjoyed the villa and that everything suited you for your holiday. The views are quite something aren't they! We hope that you will be able to return in the future and maybe enjoy that longer holiday! With our best wishes John and Joan.
Great property - perfect for a family of six, definitely need a car!
Overall a very positive stay. The house is well maintained, spacious and has a lovely pool and outlook over Torrox, the hills and the sea. The house has air conditioning in the lounge and one bedroom which helps on a hot evening. The house has everything we needed - dishwasher, wifi, DVD, UK tv, washing machine, fridge and freezer and worked perfectly. We used the house to relax and enjoy the pool but also had some good day trips. Granada, the Caves of Neja and Frigilano are all good places to visit. Aquavelis is a great day out with the kids. The couple who look after the property are extremely helpful. Local Mercado in Torrox Costa was a good supermarket to use and there are local shops and a bakery in Torrox itself. The house is accessed by a steep mountain road which is unsurfaced in places - its fine once you've done it once but you definitely need to hire a car. We flew into Almeria on Iberia flights from Heathrow via Madrid which worked well. We would definitely recommend it for a relaxing week or two!
Thank you for your kind review. We are happy that you and your family enjoyed the villa and that it had everything you needed. It's good to see that whilst you were able to enjoy some relaxation you could also have fun exploring and visiting the area. We will for next year be installing air conditioning in the remaining two bedrooms - for those hot evenings - to make it even more comfortable! With our best wishes John and Joan.
Relaxing family holiday in a superb villa.
This was our 2nd time staying in the villa, the 1st being 2 years ago. We have been coming to this area of Spain for about 8 years, and this villa is a fabulous find. The track is rough towards the end but absolutely fine. It was so lovely going back to somewhere we knew. You never tire of the stunning views once at the back of the property.
You overlook lovely Torrox Pueblo with the sea in the distance, and to the right are the mountains - gorgeous!!
Lots of lovely meals/tapas had in Torrox and in nearby Competa ( in particular Restaurant El Pilon) and the beaches visited at Torrox Costa and Burriana in Nerja.
The villa is just home from home, very well equipped but with added sun and a pool !!!
Great communications from the owners throughout the whole booking process.
I would definitely recommend this villa for a fabulous, relaxing family holiday. We will be returning again, I am sure!
What more can I say!!
Thank your for your kind review. We were happy to welcome you back to the villa and are glad that it suits you so well and that it feels like home from home. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Kind regards John and Joan.
Fantastic spacious peaceful villa
We have been staying in different villas around Torrox for the last 10 years and I can honestly say this was my favourite.
Very clean and very spacious I loved the layout.
The pool is fenced off with gates that can be locked to stop toddlers wandering too close if needed.
There is a winding track to the villa but this is worth every step when you see the stunning views.
We were met by a Freind of the owner of the villa just off the motorway and he lead us up to the villa which completely took the stress out of finding it.
He also sorted any problems we had out which was only one small thing but he was out to help within the hour.
We will definitely be returning soon.
Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our villa. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. With kindest regards John and Joan.
Relaxing, peaceful Villa.
We arrived for a family holiday, with two teenagers and a 12 year old for a 15 night stay. Wonderful villa, stunning scenery which you only appreciate once at the back of the property. You look down over the lovely village of Torrox, to the right you have the stunning mountains and in the short distance ahead , the coast. There is a good size pool with gradual step entry with lights you can use for night swimming - lovely ! The villa was clean and well maintained. All of our meals were eaten under the veranda, which was lovely. There is a BBQ but you cannot use in July or August due to fire risks (which we found out upon arrival) but after speaking to the owner when we arrived (as our holiday covered the latter end of August and beginning of Sept), he said that with due care and attention using charcoal not paper, we were allowed to use. There is Wifi in the villa, which is invaluable with teenagers! The villa is home from home with the added benefits of the sun!! The lovely villages of Frigiliana and Competa are very picturesque and worth a visit. Nerja is a larger town further down the coast which is lovely too, with a wider range of watersports. Torrox Costa is the nearest beach, this also has pedaloes for hire. To be honest, the road/track leading to the villa was a little worse than we expected but having seen it the following morning in daylight and having driven a couple of times, it was fine. Great communications with the owners, both before and during our holiday. You are met by the Meet and Greet agents, who are were friendly. All in all, a fabulous holiday for my family and we would love to return to the villa one day. We would recommend for a relaxing, peaceful holiday.
