About Shirley

We bought the villa as we loved the stunning views and convenient location. It is very secluded but there are other villas nearby and Albox with all its amenities is within walking distance and only 5 minutes by car. We intended to use the villa as a holiday let but eventually hope to retire there ourselves.

Shirley purchased this villa in 2012

Why Shirley chose Mojacar area

We just fell in love with the tranquillity of the area and just love the peace and quiet that the villa offers. Also in Albox which is only 5 minutes car drive away there are a multitude of restaurants and tapas bars. Also the local people are so friendly and helpful.

What makes this villa unique

The healthy life style, the beautiful climate and the fact that the sun shines almost every day. It is near to golf courses, beaches, lakes with beautiful mountain walks surrounding the villa.

Brilliant villa, perfect pool!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 2 wonderful weeks here and highly recommend the villa. The villa itself was well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The pool and surrounding patio area was perfect! Certainly rates number one out of all the villas we have stayed in over the years. Our two boys loved every second spent in the pool. The screen was ideal, keeping most bugs out! We actually had a mozzie bite free holiday :) Already missing breakfast by the pool! The roof terrace was ideal for watching the sunset in the evenings and star gazing at night.

The owners have looked after us well, thank you.

We ventured out and about. We would highly recommend a visit to Negratin Lake, near Baza. Great place to swim.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay at our villa and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Like you, we also enjoy the Florida screen as it protects against insects but still allows guests to obtain a good tan. We hope you return and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

What a fab villa has everything you could want on a holiday. Sunbathing by the pool with the bonus of a screen covering keeping the flies and bugs out. BBQ for dinner then relaxing in the hot tub in the evening. We arrived to a lovely welcome pack and the villa absolutely spotless. Albox is a good base for travelling to beautiful spanish towns and beaches. I would love to go back and would have no hesitation on recommending this villa. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the 5 star rating it was a pleasure to have you and your party stay and look after our villa so well and enjoyed the welcome pack. We are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday and that you found Albox such a good location. It is a typical Spanish town with all the amenities necessary for travellers plus being near many other places of interest and the coast is only 30 minutes away. It was also good to hear that you found the Florida screen over the swimming pool area so useful for keeping flies and bugs at bay while you enjoyed the sun plus use of the hot tub in the evening where you can relax and enjoy a drink or two. You are first class guests and we welcome you back at any time to enjoy our villa. Thank you for choosing our villa and we look forward to seeing you back again. Best wishes, Shirley and Fred

5 Star

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd stay at this fantastic villa and hopefully wont be our last, it has everything you need for a relaxing holiday, private, quiet, but only 5 minutes by car into Albox, recommend the Rambla Cafe for breakfast and Little India for a good curry.

The pool area cover is fab as you don't have to worry about insects when eating outside and the hot tub is a lovely added bonus as it was a little too chilly in April for us to brave the pool so used the hot tub every day instead.

Thank you Shirley, we will be back!

January In Spain

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent January in Spain, house Hunting, We hired Villa Sonadores as a base for our search and didn't consider this as a holiday, The Villa very quickly became the yardstick by which we measured all the homes we looked at as it had everything we wanted, The weather was fantastic, we had coffee outside each morning gazing at the wonderful views, and so our search very quickly also became a holiday, The facilities are excellent, louise and steve who were on hand to help were very helpful, there is everything you need in Albox and just a short drive away, I cant think of a reason not to holiday here,

Owner's Response: We are pleased you found all you wanted at our villa. We have tried to offer a home from home atmosphere and originally chose the villa for its tranquil location and wonderful views of the surrounding mountains, yet on the outskirts of Albox which is a quaint Spanish town that has many amenities and facilities such as a sports centre, bowling alley, restaurants and bars. Despite this it has still retained its Spanish charm and within easy reach of the more commercial coastal resorts. We look forward to your return and hope you eventually find your dream home in the sun.

Relax - you certainly will

  • 5 of 5

Relax, we certainly did.

We really enjoyed our two week stay at Los Sonadores. Whilst the villa is situated a couple of miles out of the town of Albox, it is a quick drive down to the town and parking on the road is easy and free of charge. On several occasions we enjoyed the cooler morning temperatures and walked the distance, it takes approximately 40 minutes at a relaxed walking pace.

The villa is very comfortable and we felt very much at home. It is an individual property set in its own very private and secure gardens and we enjoyed the daily luxury of a private well maintained swimming pool and hot tub.

After two weeks of fine weather and relaxation our only regret was not having another week (or two) there.

A huge thanks to Shirley & Fred for letting us share their home for a brief time, and also to Steve & Louise for hosting us whilst we were over.

Owner's Response: Thank you for giving us a 5 Star review and we are very pleased you had a relaxing time at our villa. We also loved its perfect location in a rural setting with stunning views of the mountains and yet so near the town of Albox. It is good to know you found the villa comfortable and as you say, it felt like home. We appreciate the care you have taken of our villa and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Many thanks. Shirley and Fred

The pictures do not do this property justice. Stunning villa, very peaceful, gorgeous pool and hot tub surrounded by a beautiful backdrop of mountains. Louise and Steve were excellent when we arrived, Shirley was so helpful with our initial booking and kept in touch. The layout was superb and the covering over the pool was a godsend, not only because we were travelling with children, but it also gave protection from flies and the sun without hampering the tan!

Albox is a great place and there is a Lidl and Mercadona down the road as well as 4 English supermarkets and a great café where you can get a full English. Also highly recommend the Happy Garden the Chinese Restaurant.

All in all, a perfect holiday and one I recommend highly.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you and your party enjoyed your holiday at our villa. It is especially pleasing to know our visitors appreciate the beautiful mountains and the setting of the villa, as this was what first attracted us to it, with its secluded, peaceful and private setting yet still close to Albox with all its amenities. It was also gratifying to note that you enjoyed the pool and hot tub and found the covering over the pool useful not only for the children but as protection from flies and the sun without detracting from a tan. We know Louise and Steve will appreciate your kind comments as they always go the extra mile to ensure our visitors are well looked after throughout their holiday. We do hope you and your party will return and we look forward to hearing from you again. Many thanks. Shirley

There are beaches like San Juan and Villaricos close by and also have a Sunday market. The resort of Majacar is approximately 50 minutes drive away. These beaches have been given the blue flag award for cleanliness, they never get overcrowded which makes them extremely safe for children.

The nearest airport is Almeria which is approximately 1 hours drive from the villa. Murcia airport is approximately 1 hours and 50 minutes. Alicante is approximately 2 hours 15 minutes. All airports are accessible by the excellent motorway system. Most budget airlines fly to these airports and to appreciate the area we fully recommend car hire.


The small town of Albox is only 5 minutes by car. The coast is approximately 30 minutes drive away depending on which coastline you choose to go to.

Further Details:

The local town of Albox is only 5 minutes drive and has an array of shops, banks, chemists and supermarkets with a selection of cosmopolitan restaurants including English, Italian, Chinese, Indian and French.
