My boyfriend and I stayed in Casa Limones for a week in August and had a lovely relaxing time. Only a 30-40 minute drive from the airport it was easy to find, and makes a great base for exploring other areas, if you can bare to peel yourself away from the sun loungers and pool! The casa (cottage) was well equipped, and even came with a welcome pack of water, beer, wine, crisps and cakes. The pool is shared between both the casas however the couple in Los Olivos barely used the pool, it was like having our own one all week. The place is extremely peaceful, the only noise you have to contend with is the sound of cicada beetles and the howling dogs in the valley during the evenings. The air-conditioning was a welcome essential in the evenings and as for mosquitoes, well neither of us got bitten (although we did use the repellent spray just to be sure). Car hire is essential if you want to go out (and also to get to the supermarket) as nothing is within walking distance. Maureen was non intrusive but on hand if you need anything. She provides an information pack with supermarkets, recommended restaurants, beaches etc, however we discovered a lovely restaurant (not in her pack) in Alhaurin called Santiago's - the food and wine was delicious. Her 2 boxers were very friendly - came to visit a few times but tended to amuse themselves. The only (minor) problem we found was that the fridge didn't seem to get very cold, a little concern when storing meats and wanting an ice cold beer, but the freezer worked fine.
A great find and would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from a fast-paced life to a relaxing haven away from it all! Thanks Maureen.
