It’s all about the view
We had a lovely, relaxing stay at the villa. The booking process was easy and communication with the owners was responsive and prompt. The agents in Spain, Liz and Barry, were so helpful and it was reassuring to know they were there even if not needed.
The villa itself is a lovely space with everything you could need but the real selling point is the view which is probably more stunning than the pictures suggest.
WOW.. What a view!!
My wife and I had the pleasure to stay in this property during August with our two boys 7 and 10. . We have rented many Villas over the past 10 years and we look for privacy, but not remote, near restaurants and beaches but not too close, plenty of room so that we are not on top of each other (we have two boys!) and a good sized pool.... This villa ticked all of those boxes and more.
The villa is a great size and maybe a little too big for a family of four as we didn't use the lower ground floor at all. Most of the rooms have a ceiling fan which is great if like us you don't like to use the aircon. However aircon is available in all rooms.
I could be harsh and say the décor is a little dated but this is a rental and is in rural Spain and not Puerto Banus.. its priced appropriately and it would not stop me booking again.. This really is grasping at straws to provide a balanced review!
The kitchen has more utensils than I ever seen and on the whole the villa is well equipped.
The pool is a great size and not too deep for young kids of 7-10 years old.
All of the bedrooms are a great size and everything is spotlessly clean. Also more bathrooms than we could all use!
Also as you can see from the pictures.. which don't do it justice.. the view from the front of the house is amazing.. so special..
The management team of Liz and Barry is a great service and really makes you feel welcome to the villa. Liz and Barry were on hand for an initial greeting to local recommendations. We also had a small issue with tree roots blocking a drain whilst we were there which could have been a real headache but had zero impact on me other than one whatsapp message to Liz and Barry.. Barry jumped into action and arranged a resolution and turned up to ensure full resolution so that I would not even need to speak to the drain company. They provide a great service and all villa rentals should have a Liz and Barry!!
The location is excellent though you must have a car. The town of Salobrena is a 5 minutes in one direction and Almunecar is 5 minutes in the other direction. Both towns have beaches, restaurants, supermarkets etc. Both towns are very Spanish holiday resorts and are thankfully devoid of package holiday hotels and English bars. We found that many Spanish we spoke to were local of had holiday apartments here and lived in Madrid or central Spain.
Overall I would absolutely recommend this villa!!
Not to be missed
We all had a wonderful relaxing stay at this lovely spacious villa.
The views from every angle were breathtaking. The pool and pool area was a hit with all ,beautiful pool,sun loungers,bbq and a wonderful seating area.
Loved the unspoilt town of Salobrena traditionally Spanish with good restaurants and great food.also Nerja, Frigiliana and Granada are well worth a visit.
Liz and Barry were very welcoming and helpful during our stay at the villa.
Would highly recommend a stay at this beautiful property.
A jewel with an amazing view!
This villa is a jewel! The pictures on the listing are great, but the view and the property are amazing in real life. I have often booked properties with high expectations, but faced disappointment once seeing the reality. This time - the opposite. Nothing but positive surprises.
The communication with Debbie was easy and nice, and Liz and Barry in Salobreña were absolute fantastic. Nicest British people I have met in a long time :) If there was a question or a challenge, they offered their help without hesitation. We had a minor issue with some plumbing, but Barry fixed it in no time.
The rooms are nice, and the villa offers privacy as well as social areas. Perfect for families, and groups that don’t know each other that well. We were here working with a team, and the villa really facilitated our creativity.
The view! The view! The view!
You need a car, but you’ll enjoy driving around this part of Spain. The town of Salobreña is small, but very nice. Great dining options, as well as a nice beach. Nerja is 20 minutes away, and it’s a beautiful little town as well with much more action.
Highest recommendations 👍👍👍👍👍
We arrived at the villa and were speechless at the views! We thought the photos were amazing and the reality surpassed them by a mile!
Debbie was so wonderful at communicating with me as we planned our trip and then Liz and Barry could not have been more welcoming. They showed us around, told us all we needed to know, showed us the house manual (most thorough house manual I've ever seen!) and added me on What's App to stay in touch should we have more questions. We were more than fine in and with the house but needed a recommendation on a horse riding place nearby - Liz responded right away with Laura's name and contact info - I spoke with Laura and set up the most amazing day for all of us! Thank you, Liz!
The only sad part of our trip was having to leave and I'm trying to figure when we can come back! Thank you!!!!
our Golden Anniversary vacation !
We really wanted somewhere special this year after several holidays in Spain, and this was it ! The views are spectacular ! Plus the activity along the expanse of blue sea, yachts, boats, a seaplane landing, even the Spanish Air Force display team over Motril ! The villa is very spacious and has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay. The pool is private and welcoming with plenty of seating. Several supermarkets within a short drive. The lovely Nerja not too far away with some nice restaurants, one of our favourite places ! Altogether the villa is an ideal place to chill ! Hopefully we will be back !
Alfamar is a charming residential area situated just a short drive up the main coastal road and overlooking the beautiful hilltop town of Salobrena, and the lovely old Andalucian town of Almunecar. The Costa Tropical is typified by its rugged coastline with mountains coming right down to the sea, and retains its true Spanish character. A breath of fresh air for those tired of other over-developed areas of coastal Spain but with all the required facilities. Blessed with the warmest winters in mainland Europe due to its sheltered position.
