Great location to explore the area.
Great owners. A new venture for them & they could not have been more helpful. We wish them all the best.
Thanks Steve, much appreciated. Good luck for the future.
It was the perfect, relaxing getaway!
My husband, myself and our 3 children (6,3 and 7 months) stayed in villa jacaranda during the last week of August! We were looking for a quiet, relaxing place away from it all and this villa was EXACTLY that! We stayed on the top half of the villa which has the pool, BBQ, bedroom and living space with sofa bed, bathroom and little kitchen. The older kids loved being in the perfectly sized pool all day with the inflatables provided, and the little one enjoyed crawling about in the outside space which is clean and safe for little ones who tend to put everything in their mouths! The villa has big bars on the glass doors in the bedroom and living room which is great to make sure little ones don't escape and end up in the pool unsupervised! We lay in the sun all day on the sun loungers provided and just enjoyed the scenery and peace! We went for a walk around the villa and came across lots of different fruit trees which the children enjoyed picking! Andy was great at communicating both before we arrived and throughout our stay reminding us of Steve the pool man coming round to clean the pool and just making sure we had everything we needed.
The villa is quite easy to get to from the airport and is very handy to the motorway which gets u around Malaga, shops are close enough but we only ventured out twice and spent most of the time in the villa. The drive up the mountains to the villa was a bit scary the first time round seen as there are no street lights at night (we arrived at night) I wouldn't suggest trying to drive up there for the first time in the pitch black but once you see the road it's much easier and probably safer and u have an amazing scenery going up! The villa is pretty complete with everything you'll need during your stay with the added bonus of both air condition which we used at night while we were there and a log fire outside which we used once (mainly for marshmallow purposes)!
I would recommend this villa to anyone (all ages) who wants a relaxing week away from the stress of every day life!
A great villa in a fantastic location with a lovely pool and views
My wife, my daughter (15) and I stayed at Villa Jacaranda from 3-17 August 2017. The villa is at 400m in the hills just beyond Torrox Pueblo and only 20-25 minutes to get to the local beaches. Torrox Pueblo takes about 15 mins to reach and has a lovely friendly town square, cafes, banks, small shops, bakery, patisserie and most things you want. Torrox Costa is about another 10 minutes and has bigger supermarkets. We used Mercadona which was recommended by Andy and Carol, the villa owners, and a good choice.
The villa is easy to get to from Malaga airport and has everything you need including air conditioning, washing machine, dishwasher, fridges and sleeping for 8. It is split on two levels and with only an external staircase is well suited for two families sharing or a larger family with teenage / older children who want their own space. The three of us all stayed in the upper part of the villa. Both parts have their own kitchen including cookers and fridges, pots, pans, cutlery and Andy & Carol have made sure you have all you need. We were generously greeted with some wine, beers and water in the fridge. Both levels also have their own living spaces and bathrooms although the lower bedrooms are both doubles and whilst separate they are essentially one space. Wifi was excellent.
We were the first people to stay since the new owners have taken over and they are clearly still doing a lot of work to bring the villa up to a very high standard but we were very happy with the facilities, space and support we had for our stay. A couple of early minor problems were immediately dealt with by Andy who responded to texts very quickly and, on one occasion, phoned to talk me through things and make sure we were happy.
The pool was cleaned each Tuesday but is beautiful, clean and clear and linen was changed after the first week of our stay with thoughtful and courteous reminders by text in advance.
The gardens are large and with the ongoing care they are now clearly getting could be a delightful feature.
Outside there were inflatables provided for the swimming pool along with sun loungers, dining table, parasols and a lovely seating area to the side of the property with shade. The pool is more of a plunge pool but was perfect for us, and we were able to dip in during the heat of the day and splash lazily. Young children would need careful supervision.
Very happily recommend this lovely villa. Andy & Carol were always helpful - we had a fabulous stay.
Dejlig beliggenhed og udendørs faciliteter.
Superfin feriebolig i smukke omgivelser og masser af dejlige udendørs hyggekroge når vejret er til det. Eneste minus måske den lidt kedelige indendørs indretning - f.eks. mangler der et spisebord ovenpå. Alt ialt havde vi en fin oplevelse.
Beautiful sunny mediterranean villa!
We really liked this mediterranean villa, which is well situated in the mountains not far from the beach. The place gives a sense of freedom and quietness, and is yet only 15 minutes driving to Torrox village. It actually consists of two separate appartments, each fully equipped and with comfortable living- and bedrooms. It is especially suitable for two couples or a family with grown-up children, like us, with enough privacy for each. The stairs outside are the only connection. The great terraces all around provide at any time suitable places to relax, in the sun or in the shadow, windy or quiet. We also enjoyed playing ping-pong there.
