“Fantastic stay, would reccommend”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This Villa was fantastic, we have never stayed in a villa before but we will be going back next year.
Great location, and really good views from the top terrace.
Short 10 min walk to the shops for essentials, but the car is handy for big shops.
there was a large group of us including 2 children and a bay. The Villa is well equipt for all different ages.
Carlos was fantastic and came every morning to tend to the pool, he was extremley helpful with any queries we had and was ony a phone call away.
I was a bit worried about paying the deposit into his account but everything was fine and above board.
The pool was a perfect size for everyone. The Villa is very spacious.

“great stay”

this villa is ideal for those wanting a relaxed location yet within walking distance of bars and shops.
its on a hill in arroyo about a 15 min downhill walk to the train station and another 15 mins to bonanza square, but you need a taxi back costs 8 euros from bonanza, about 35 min walk to beach.
its got all the facillities you need and a good size pool, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs sleeping 4 and 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms downstairs.
Carlos the owner really looks after you hes always at the end of the phone if you have any problems [ we had a problem with no hot water downstairs and after a phone call he was there to fix it straight away] and he comes round early in the morning usually before we got up to clean the pool.
he took us for a ride in his car when we got there to show us benalmadena and the local supermarkets and when we got back he left us his car for any more trips to the supermarket, which you need carrying water bottles and shopping is no fun in the heat, but lidl is only a 10 min walk away.
the only extras you pay are for electric we paid 35 euros for the 10 of us, and don't be put off from paying the deposit into his bank, we had our doubts but it worked fine you pay the rest on arrival with a £400 damage excess which he gives you back.
i would have no hesitation in recommending this villa we had a great time but its not really suitable for people with dissabilities or old people there are quite a few steps up to the property

We stayed here from end aug - sept 2014.. We were a family of 10 with average age being 18 - 65 we found this villa fantastic.. The owner carlos couldnt do enough he even left us his car what was brilliant for the supermarket runs.. The villa is lovely and spacious and even with 10 of us we didnt feel cramped.. The beach and marina is bout 30-40 min walk.. I would definitely recommend this villa and will definitely be going back.. Thank you carlos for letting us rent this lovely place xx

Just returned from Villa Jara had a brilliant stay, went along 9 adults and 4 small children.
Carlos the owner couldnt of been more helpful from start to finish. The villa itself was very spacious and accomadating for a large party. Enjoyed the stay so much looking to book again for next year.

Supermarkets are in walking distance and the beach is a 20 minute walk max, you can see Tivilio World from the villa window and the kids loved visitng Sewal a short taxi ride away. Their are some small bars 5 mins walk away called Alfee and Shakers bar with quiz and kareoke nights if you did want to escape for a few hours.

The marina by taxi cost 10 euro and there you will find 100's of shops and resturants.

Thank you Carlos and hopefully we will see you again next year :)

“Spacious villa with fantastic views of the locality.”
Reviewed August 19, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We chose this villa as it was big enough to sleep 10, as we were travelling to attend our daughters wedding, with extended family. This is a very spacious villa where it was impossible to get in each others way. The owner was very welcoming and accommodating. He was not living in the villa but came occasionally to water the grass and see to the pool. He left us his phone number and was insistent that nothing was too much trouble, even offering to help on the wedding day! The outside of the villa offers various levels with sitting areas so you can find sun or shade what ever suits you. If we are travelling with a large group again we will certainly look here first.

“the best place I've been with family and friends under 1 roof just perfect ....”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

What can I say Carlos the owner did everything from picking us up from the station , drove us to the supermarket and left us his car to use during our stay.
The villa is a great size and ideal for a large family or two families sharing ,the kids loved the swimming pool and the WiFi so they all could use their I pads on evening whilst we took in the views over a glass of wine on the roof terrace . It is approx 10 mins walk to the railway station in the town centre arroyo de mile which is the ideal/easy way to get direct from the airport for €2 each they run every 20 mins and are always on time ! The beach is about 20 mins walk (in the heat) A taxi back was €8 The cable cars are a must the views are stunning I was hesitant as don't do heights but loved it . Tivoli world is a 10 minwalk and aqualand is about €10 in a taxi .lots of great places to eat and drink , bonanza square is great and the marina is lovely with moonlight boat trip for €5 inc free drink and lasts about 30 mins . I would highly recommend this villa and will be back ,many thanks Carlos for your hospitality

“Exactly as advertised”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The villa was exactly as advertised on the web and as described. The owner Carlos was absolutely fantastic and he was there to greet us and give us a tour of the villa. He also took us shopping in his car and waited for us outside the supermarket to take us back to the villa with our groceries. He is very friendly and left us to do what we liked. The villa is very clean and spacious, the pool was very clean and a nice size. I booked the villa for a family birthday and will definitely book it again.
