Très jolie villa avec vue exceptionnelle !!
La maison est très spacieuse et très propre à notre arrivée, la literie très confortable. Même si la température de la piscine n'était pas encore très chaude à cette époque de l'année, nous avons bien profitez des transats et fait quelques baignades (rapides!). Chaque chambre a un bel espace de vie et les 3 salles de bains très pratiques! La cuisine de la piscine est un peu encombrée et donc pas très utilisable mais la cuisine du haut est très grande et très bien fournie en vaisselle. Seul petit bémol, les chaises de la terrasse du haut ont vieillies et s'effritent. À proximité il y a des terrains de padels, c'était une bonne activité pour nos adolescents. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de cette villa et nous la recommandons.
Beautiful, spacious villa with spectacular views
We had a wonderful holiday at Calabaza in La Herradura. The villa was spotlessly clean when we arrived with plenty of clean towels neatly arranged. The bedrooms are all a good size with nice easy to open windows. There is a lovely big bath perfect for washing all the children after a day at the beach and the showers are nice and powerful. There was also plenty of hot water for a family of eight. The upstairs living room, dining room and kitchen is open plan with a high ceiling. It is a beautiful room that is very light and spacious. We really enjoyed breakfast on the balcony area which has the most spectacular view of the sea. Photos do not do it justice! The kitchen is large and modern with very good facilities. It was very easy to cater for a large family and we really liked the large dining table, which was also great for playing board games in the evening. The garden and pool area is beautiful with lots of lovely plants. The flowering jasmine looked and smelled wonderful! The TV with English channels was useful, cbeebies helped wind the children down before bed and the Strictly fans were happy! All the keys worked easily and there is a large area to park in front of the house.
La Herradura is a friendly, small town with a great beach and good local shops. There are lots of other beaches only a short drive away which we enjoyed visiting including Maro where we went kayaking. We also enjoyed walks in the surrounding hills which are beautiful and the wild herbs growing abundantly smell wonderful. There are lots of good tourist offices and the one in Nerja gave us a booklet with the routes clearly detailed. The caves in Nerja are worth a visit and we also enjoyed the castle in Almunecar. There is a lot to see and do within very easy driving distance.
Great communication with the owner and detailed information about the villa including good directions ensured a stress free holiday. We had a fantastic time here and thoroughly recommend the villa and the area.
Lovely villa with fabulous views
When you are a family of four with older children it is really difficult to find somewhere to stay that everyone likes. This villa ticked all our boxes. The pool was really clean and large enough to swim properly, plenty of sun loungers and shady areas to get out of the heat if you wanted to. The pictures, however, did not give us a true reflection of how fabulous the villa was. The view from the terrace is stunning - you cannot appreciate it until you are there! In the main living area there is a lovely, well equipped and re fitted kitchen which is open plan with the dining area and sitting room. There are doors to the terrace, barbeque area and the steps to the pool area. On this floor there is also the master suite and bathroom and a loo. Off the hall are the stairs to downstairs which have the remaining bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a laundry room. All the bedrooms are off a downstairs sitting room and another kitchen. This kitchen is for the poolside so you can pop in for a drink and a snack while you are sat outside.
Before we arrived the owner sent us very informative property details and very useful (and accurate) directions on how to get there. We would definitely go back for a holiday in the future. It is in a very good location, and so as long as you have a car, it is easy to get to lots of places and the roads are very good. And lastly, and the most important for our children, the WiFi was very good! The range was good and reached poolside - most important if you want to Snapchat while lounging in the sun!!
Fantastic property. Would love to stay again.
We had a lovely week at Calabaza. All facilities (aircon, showers, hot water, pool etc) worked perfectly and there's lots of space in the villa. The beach in La Herradura is great with lots to do. It's a 15 to 20 minute walk down to the begining of the bay but a steep walk back - we used the car after the first day!! Parking was never a problem, we always found a space on the front for free but there are car parks if you can't (one was 5 Euros for the day).
Would highly recomend taking a trip to Frigiliana
Only slight criticisms are 1. We had trouble locking the front gate - the key didn't always work 2. There could have better information provided about the local area - a simple map would have helped.
Thanks Martin and I'm really delighted you had a good holiday and that everything was working well.
I'm grateful also for your comments and I will investigate the lock on the gate and get it fixed if it is faulty.
I'm not sure what better information you wanted on the local area. There should be a very good guide book on Andalucia in one of the kitchen drawers as well as lots of local maps and restaurant cards. We are going out there ourselves in the near future and will check that all this is still in place in case someone has moved things around and it has all got hidden. Sorry if this was the case .
I look forward to welcome you back to Calabaza .
Location,the house, the rooms, the design and the views all excellent.
The negatives were the garden/pool furniture all being past their best before date, plus the downstairs kitchen area being used as a store room. This did not matter to us as there was just the two of us. The pool needed a clean.
It would have helped if the location of the key for the poolside entrance was explained, along with what to do if there was a power cut reference the trip switch. Both of these particularly so as all other instructions were very good. Simon's response was very good ( a nice man) but it would not have been necessary with these better instructions.
These points are meant to be helpful.
We had a great time and were very happy. Thankyou.
The perfect villa in a glorious location
If you are looking for a beautiful, spacious, large villa with a pool, an hour drive from the major airport, then look no further. This very well equipped villa, with the most stunning sea views, is a saunter away from a friendly and safe beach front, with a variety of restaurants, as well as trendy bars - so I feel its location caters for all age groups. It has a beautiful swimming pool, and is located in a quiet, safe neighbourhood. The hosts had excellent ideas for us, in terms of where to go and what to do, as well as everything in the house being well documented, ensuring a most comfortable, stress free stay. This is most definitely a villa we will return to.
