“Awesome outdoor entertaining, great view and pool”
Reviewed June 11, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Such a great property - particularly the outdoor spaces. There's a big outdoor kitchen, bar area and quite a few spots to hang out and relax. Pool and spa are great - our kids spent most days in here.

Charlie and Louise were great hosts. I felt like they really went out of their way to help, including organising our grocery service so we were completely set up. And the pastry/bread delivery was a nice touch!

We didn't particularly love the surrounding towns (but we are from Australia so pebble grey beaches are a bit foreign to us!) but this property makes up for it. You don't need to leave and if you are looking for somewhere to chill out, well this is perfect.

Just one thing I'd note....we had 3 kids (6, 6 and 5 years). Whilst the property was fine for these ages, I would be cautious if I had smaller kids. There's quite a few stairs down to bedrooms and you'd want to watch kids don't try to climb over balcony etc. Anyway this is a minor point cause I'm pretty sure the owners did say it was more suitable for older kids.

Overall this is an amazing property. And made even better by the friendly owners!

“Stunning villa”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This was our second holiday at the villa and it has lost none of its wow factor. The views, the pool, the outdoor areas all make a perfect recipe for a relaxing holiday. Charlie and Louise have done a fantastic job with this villa and they go out of their way to ensure that you have a wonderful stay. We will be returning to El Cuadrado next year.

“Simply perfect!”
Reviewed August 28, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The pictures on the internet were extremely impressive, but nothing could have prepared us for the real thing – it surpassed all expectations. The villa is outstanding and we are extremely grateful to Charlie and Louise for letting us stay at their home. We can honestly say that we have never stayed in such a luxurious villa and the view was breath-taking. We certainly made good use of the pool and the outside kitchen and eating area, and the pastry delivery service was the icing on the cake (pardon the pun!). The villa was extremely well-equipped and we didn't want for anything.

On behalf of the McDonnells, the Stonells and the Keeble, thank you so much for making our holiday so enjoyable and one of the most relaxing.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed September 7, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The owners, the setting and the house itself were all amazing. We had a wonderful week and will definitely return! The house is superbly laid out with space for everyone, a downside could be the road down to Almunecar which you certainly wouldn't want to do at night! However we took this as a plus because we hardly went out and thoroughly enjoyed being in the house, in the mountains with the wonderful pool, relaxing atmosphere and superb views. Next time we'll go for longer and do a large shop before we go up - as we did this time on the owners advice.The owners have thought of everything and there was a great welcome basket (more than a basket!). The house is extremely well equipped, the bedrooms are lovely as is every part of the house. A wonderful break.

“Amazing villa”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This summer we had an excellent vacation in Almunecar. The villa ‘El Cuadrado’ is really amazing, very spacious and stylishly decorated. The outdoor kitchen is fully equiped and makes cooking very attractive with views on the mountains and the pool. The very best was the absolutely warm welcome by Charlie and Louise who are really top hosts. Also Yannis, the cook we booked for 1 dinner on site, is highly recommended. The outdoor terrace, where we spent most of our time, is spacious and again, very well decorated (morrocan style). The bar has a large integrated fridge, very convenient for storing all drinks. It was very hot during our stay, so the airco in the master bedroom was very welcome during the night. Others bedrooms were a bit hot, this is the only negative point we can mention.

“Beautiful ”
Reviewed August 22, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a beautiful villa situated up in the hills ( mountains!!) and the perfect place to just chill. It's a wonderful layout and plenty of spaces to chill, relax. Luckily our daughter is 12, I wouldn't take a younger child here, steep steps etc. There are no faults with this villa, we enjoyed a lovely week.

“A fantastic villa in a breathtakingly beautiful location - already looking forward to returning....”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a stunning villa situated high in the mountains with a glorious view over the Sierra Nevada and the sea.
The villa itself is a joy. All the rooms are well appointed and the decor is restful with clean lines and beautiful colours to increase the sense of tranquility and peace. Great pool and jacuzzi, fantastic lounge and additional sunny and shaded seating/relaxing areas all around the property. Seven of us stayed for the week; plenty of space to eat together but also to relax and have your own space.
Great kitchens - the inside kitchen is functional and well stocked with every appliance/cooking utensil/crockery you could possibly need. Outside there is a second kitchen with barbcues and additional seating areas.There are herbs and fruit gowing in the garden - mint great for mohitos (as recommended) and figs and pomegrates for breakfast. Oil and herbs etc. provided for cooking. We loved cooking outside but also followed recommendations for local restaurants. Guide books for the area abound.
The owners Charlie & Louise are lovely; starting the week with a 'welcome' pack of different food and alcoholic beverages was great and much appreciated and it set the tone for our break. Charlie & Louise are very thoughtful owners and go out of the way to ensure a 5* plus experience for their guests. All makes for an absolutely fantastic holiday. 100% recommended. We have stayed in luxury villas throughout Europe and this stands right at the top in tems of value, layout, facilities, views and management.
