We had a wonderful stay at the villa! It was exactly what was described, even more beautiful. The house was in perfect condition, any little issue that came up was immediately attended to by Simon. We did rent a car but also went to Malaga city by train, visited the small town of Mijas and went hiking in the surrounding mountains. Shopping in the close by town of Fuengirola was not a problem at all when taking the car, we always had everything we needed. Debbie and Simon were kind enough to not only meet us at the villa and come check on us during our stay, they also gave us a cell phone with spanish service so we could call them or a taxi or anything at anytime which was very thoughtful and useful. We had the nicest evenings and hottest days even at the end of September and spent a lot of time at the pool enjoying the fabulous view. To our delight all the rooms were absolutely beautiful and every one of the almost 20 people we had staying there was content with where they were staying. Also it was so much fun discovering the house, there’s always something new, a new path to the pool or through all the rooms you haven’t seen yet. There was more than enough places to be even when the sun went around the house (The sun goes up exactly behind the pool site and you should definitely take a morning to look at it.). We had the most wonderful and relaxing time, we all just wish we could’ve stayed longer!
