Guestbook comments from the owner

Before I even start commenting how amazing the villa/ holiday was I must start in saying how brilliant the pre-service was, nothing seemed too much trouble and Karen was always answering any questions we had, or providing advice which was great seeming we had a little one.

The villa, lake and surrounding area are beautiful 'proper Spain' - being surrounding by mountains, valleys, quaint villages and the bluest lake I've seen was 'well words can't describe.'

Karen's dad 'Ray' lives next door and is always on hand or popping up to see how you are, whilst bringing wine.

The villa is great - its perfect for a family holiday, our little one was 14 months and it was great for her.

If you're thinking about booking this villa, don't - bloody book it !!!!

I'm more than happy if you want to email me to find out any thing more on but trust me you won't be disappointed in this place.

Outstanding scenery

  • 4 of 5

Loved our stay. For us as a couple the location was wonderful in that the views surrounding the entire villa were exceptional and the total privacy was superb. We did have an issue with the cleanliness of the pool while we were there but were assured that this would be looked at. The cleanliness of the villa itself was excellent with everything inside that you could want. Even though we had a couple of issues it would not put us off returning to spend another holiday.

Fabulous Villa in Stunning Location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely villa in which to spend a holiday. It has the most amazing views. We had unseasonably cold and windy weather for the week we were there (early April) so unfortunately we weren’t able to make the most of the beautiful swimming pool and outside area as it was too cold. The hot tub saved the day for us all and we enjoyed it very much. Sitting in the hot tub, looking out across the lake and to the snow covered mountains was a truly amazing and memorable experience. The villa is up in the mountains and it is a short drive to village shops and facilities. The coast towns such as Nerja are easily accessible and the roads are good. We had some difficulty with the hot water supply whilst there but this was dealt with appropriately by Dennis and Karen. We are happy to recommend this villa.

Lovely, clean Villa for the family with superb view!

  • 5 of 5

We had one week in this lovely villa in October (Had meant to leave a review long before now!) A family member of the owner greeted us with a very warm welcome and some useful information on the surrounding area. The villa was spotless on arrival with a very generous welcome pack of goodies. The villa is very well equipped and felt like a home from home.

The view from the villa is fabulous and we particularly enjoyed sunrise and sunset. The pool was heated which we really appreciated having 2 young children. We were able to use it every day.

There are some lovely local restaurants 5-10 mins drive away. Large supermarket and shopping centre with Zara, H&M, Dunnes etc around 15-20 min drive away.

We hope to return again and explore the surrounding area more next time. Found it hard to drag ourselves away from the lovely pool and view!

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

This is the third time that we have stayed here, which speaks for itself as a recommendation The villa is spacious, clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's a great place to relax and just look at the view, especially in the morning as the sun rises. Looking forward to a fourth visit in the not too distant future.

We have truly found a gem of a property. Everything is perfect!!! The location is great if you want pure peace and quiet away from it all. The view you can never tire of. The villa cleanliness was immaculate and is very well equipped. The welcome pack you are greeted with is plentiful and enough there for breakfast and drinks most days. There are three good sized bedrooms with plenty of storage and all with en-suites which are also of a good size. The pool was amazing and was perfect for those long hot days. Dennis, the villa representative is extremely helpful and very informative. We will definitely be back

Lovely house, beautiful view!! Helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

From the first email karen was extremely helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.

From the moment we walked in the house was as nice as we expected....thoughtfully furnished, fresh, clean & modern.......the view was better than any pictures! We had lovely weather & found the house in a quiet spot whilst being in a great position to get anywhere....Valdez Malaga, shops, markets etc.

Karen's uncle Dennis, who now takes care of things, was excellent. He was very helpful when we first arrived, was thoughtful by dealing with the pool when we were out but popping by to see all was well. It was a perfect balance.

We'd like be to go back.
