Stayed at La Jacaranda late May for a week with 21 family members, and what can I say, the property certainly did not disappoint! It’s an absolutely stunning villa with beautiful views, great size, very clean, nice pool, and the owner Debbie was a second to none host… so efficient & helpful she really made the whole booking process a doddle, and throughout our stay if we had any queries she would respond within a short time via whatsapp. Getting about the area around the villa was made fairly easy by the regular buses at the top of the road (which was around a 5 minute walk away). The bus going up the hill which was only a short bus ride takes you to the picturesque hillside town of Mijas. When staying at La Jacaranda you can’t miss the opportunity of visiting this beautiful unspoilt place, despite many people being around when we visited 2 or 3 times it didn’t feel overly busy nor commercialised by any means, so it’s a real gem. Even the children in our party (aged from 8 months to 8 years old) really enjoyed it there what with plenty of tasty eatery’s, ice cream shops, a nice play area up by the church, and stunning views along the hill walls and gardens, so the town was good for all ages really, and importantly as well felt very safe. Going from the villa again but taking the bus down the hill on the opposite side of the road takes you to Fuengirola (approx a 15 minute bus ride) which was a nice seaside area, again good for all ages as the beach felt clean with nice sand, it’s more commercialised as it’s a large place but didn’t seem overcrowded or spoilt by holiday makers by any means at the time of year we went (I can’t comment how it would be for any other time of year though as it was our first time this side of Malaga). Anyway, in summary, we had a fantastic stay at La Jacaranda and spending time in the local area, and hope we can return again at some point in the future as either a large family stay or a group of friends. Thank you Debbie for letting your wonderful house out! 🙂
