Absolute Perfection. My wife and I have just returned after a very pleasant 9 nights at this property and we can not fault one thing. The studio apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The views were magnificent looking down the valley. The hosts Alick and Debbie were very welcoming, went out of their way to make sure we had the holiday we wanted (peace and relaxation) and are very knowledgeable about the area. The hosts had arranged a local taxi company to do the airport transfers for us, the driver was polite, professional and punctual.
This is our 5th stay at Casa Rey. Always love coming here and now feeling like a home from home. The appartment is perfect for us, giving us all the facilities we need for two weeks. The location is truly amazing, stunning vews to enjoy at breakfast on the terrace or by the pool on a lazy day :-) and easy to get into Competa for supplies, a coffee or beer in the square or a meal in any of the great restaurants in the area. You really do get the best of both worlds being up in the mountains - on days when it is cloudy/wet on the coast it is often beautiful at Casa Rey and vice versa. It is also a great base to explore Andalucia, this year we spent two days in Seville, just an easy 3 hour drive away :-)
Lastly, but definitely not least, Alick and Debbie are perfect hosts, ably abetted by Timi and Maddie who entertain us during our stay :-). Thanks you to all four for making our stays there so special :-)
Yet again another fab holiday ... we returned after last year ... we love it here and can’t wait for next year already looked at flights .... amazing views lovely sunsets gorgeous pool and lovely people thanks Debbie and Alick
We had a wonderful relaxing week staying at Casa Rey. It's just as described by the other reviewers - the apartment contains everything you need to make yourselves at home and be comfortable, including a good kitchen area for cooking dinners, and then you can sit out with a glass of wine listening to the birds, watching the ever changing light on the hills opposite as the sun goes down, and the goats cascading down followed by the goatherd and his dogs. The surrounding area is beautiful, we did a lot of walking - local villages, up into the Sierra (stunning views), and out on the coast, it's all good. And the pool is great! It definitely ticked all our boxes, and we may well be back... Thanks Debbie and Alick (and Timmy and Maddie!)
Lovely little apartment. Fantastic views over the hills and very peaceful location.
We had a great week at Casa Rey. Debbie and Alick really made us feel welcome and gave us plenty of ideas for things to do. We also had exclusive use of the pool which was nice.
Roughly 30 minutes’ drive from the coast and a 30 minute walk into the village of Competa where there are local shops and restaurants. Malaga too is a nice city (just over an hour to drive) and we would recommend the Segway tours. Great fun.
A perfect base for visiting both the beaches and pretty villages in the hills. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
Having just returned from our 2 week holiday at Casa Rey apartment I can honestly say this is the most wonderful and amazing holiday location. The apartment has everything you need and is fully equipped to 5* standard. The pool and the view is just breath taking. To sit out and dine looking down the mountain to the sea is a joy to behold. To have all that and then to have the most fantastic hosts in Alick and Debs this makes for a holiday in a lifetime. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and they both speak perfect Spanish to assist. Lastly the two dogs Maddy and Timmy are the icing on the cake for us as a couple and we thoroughly enjoyed their company. Don't be put off if you are not a dog lover as it's down to you if you want to interact with those two characters.
