Why rental manager chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

This property in Benajafe is very close to the beach but is not surrounded by houses , it is set in a large garden .

What makes this villa unique

This property is unusual as although it is easy walking distance to beach it is still very rural as all surrounding land is privately owned and undeveloped so not many houses ,no flats .

Lovely, relaxing and fun filled family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our stay at this villa, the kids (and adults) loved the pool and its so relaxing in quiet setting but 10 mins drive to the lovely town of torre de mar. The pictures are a true perception of the villa clean and tidy and everything you need. The owner Jan could not have been more helpful. She got us small amount of food in for our late night arrival and took us to the supermarket on the first day and arranged taxis for our trip back to the airport. We eventually hired a car but the bus is only 1.1 euros to torre. There is a café and restaurant with 10 mins walk on the beach front from the villa which were great, would recommend this villa and one day hope to return.

A lovely holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 2 children under 10) stayed at Villa Sol for 9 days, and can't wait to return! The house looks just as it is presented in the photos. It is charming, with lots of character, but well-kept, very clean and with all the amenities (dishwasher, laundry, fridge, running hot water, tv, wi-fi). The beach is moments away, as is the bus stop (we didn't bother renting a car). The landlord was friendly and very helpful. Since we didn't have a car, she took us to the store for our 'big shop' to stock up, and was always available if we had any questions. She had thoughtfully provided bread, milk, cheese, fruit and muffins which were life-savers when we arrived at midnight!

The house is spacious and comfortable, and the outdoor area with its colourful plants and creepers around the pool make this space private. The goatbells and sound of the sea are most relaxing. It was the perfect getaway for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for submitting a review. You and your family were lovely tenants and we would love it if you returned for another holiday! Next time we will include extra chocolate for a midnight snack.

Knusse woning op superlocatie

  • 5 of 5

Heerlijke week gehad in dit super knusse huis.

Wij waren met 6 personen en hebben genoten van de rust en de ruimte, de prachtige bloemen en bomen rond het huis.

Het huis ligt helemaal prive en strand is op loopafstand. Een auto is wenselijk wanneer je wat van de omgeving wilt zien, Torre del Mar ligt op 10 auto minuten en is een gezellig plaatsje met leuke eetgelegenheden.

In Benajarafe kun je ook goed terecht bij de diverse restaurantjes en de verhuurder van dit huis geeft graag advies hieromtrent.

De verhuurder is bijzonder gastvrij en heeft er voor gezorgd dat het ons aan niets ontbrak. Serviesgoed, bestek was er ruim voldoende, de oven werkte perfect er is zelfs een wasmachine. De mooie bbq hebben wij een aantal maal gebruikt, wat perfect ging.

Het zwembad zorgde voor verkoeling en veel plezier.

De woning was schoon en er lag een enorme voorraad handdoeken.

De bedden slapen heerlijk. Kortom......een adres om zeker nog eens terug te komen en zeker een aanrader!

Sluit ik af met te zeggen dat de ontvangst ook bijzonder hartelijk was, er lagen broodjes, vleeswaren en kaas op ons te wachten. Hoe leuk is dat!

vacances au calme près de la mer

  • 4 of 5

Nous étions 6 (3 adultes et trois enfants) , nous sommes restés 3 semaines dans un cadre de verdure et fleurs. Plage très proche à pied. La propriétaire très discrète et sympa.Tous les soirs spectacles de flamenco gratuit sur le paseo de Torre del Mar. Nous avons profité de la piscine plein temps car très bien exposée l'eau est chaude à toute heure. Maison entièrement protégée des regards indiscrets. Nous sommes repartis avec un regret.
