“Authentic Costa del Tropical secluded garden oasis!”

Patrick offers a fantastic opportunity to get away from the tourist traps and the routine of every day life by providing a tranquil and calming setting hidden away in the Costa del Tropical.

A warming welcome by Patrick and the dogs (Dino, Hector and Bruno) to a very well establish garden enclosing beautifully authentic Spanish villas. We stayed in the smaller of the two available, perfect for a couple.

A well appointed kitchen offering everything one would need to self cater for a break, linked to a sitting room with views over the garden and out to the mountains in the distance. Off from the sitting room you'll find the roof terrace providing a perfect place for sun bathing or enjoying a drink whilst the sun goes down.

The bedroom is furnished with what's needed and is typically what you'd expect in a Spanish property. The decor of the entire villa is exactly what the mind conjures when thinking about Spain.

The gardens are extensive and offer many spots to sit and relax, we favoured breakfast in the morning outside to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. A number of spots are also available outdoor cooking, including near the pool.

We visited restaurants and attractions locally, we very much enjoyed the food at La Barraca in Alumencar and found wonderful tapas at La Trevelez in Motril. We also happened to find La Flor de la Canela which is an amazing ice cream parlour. The Motril tourist website was very useful as were guides offered by Patrick on his website and in person.

We'd definitely recommend Casa Pequena or the other cottage if you were wanting a little more space within the villa. We very much look forward to returning sometime in the future

Many thanks Patrick - a superb holiday!

Craig & Cleo.

Liked best: Garden to relax in and the general atmosphere. We felt very much left to our own devices
Liked least: We prefer a firm mattress but completely understand the memory foam mattress available is of a high quality and would not rate the experience down on this basis at all.

Delighted you appreciated the ethos of the casita and enjoyed pottering and helping with the numerous flowers and plants. Yes, the bed is a standard Spanish double from the 19th Century (recent mattress though!) carved wood with footboard so not ideal for long people! If over 6 foot tall perhaps choose my other rental home here (El Apartamento) also listed with Tripadvisor with many posive reviews too. The gardens are so lovely: long balmy nights in Summer, occasionally travellers have been known to sleep outside under the starry skies or on the roof!

Many thanks for your positive review. Always lovely to hear traveller feedback and that Casa Pequeña continues to be a super holiday base. True the local beaches are often deserted in October, despite the lovely sunshine, 27ºc today! Hope to welcome you back in the future: Chico is still hiding from Dino & Hector in the gardens - plenty of secret places and trees to climb...

Lynney & Chris many thanks for your kind comments. Pleased that you enjoyed your month in the sun with the lovely Great Danes and relaxed in the sub-tropical gardens - my dog Hector does miss their company. Hope to welcome you back to this oasis one day...
