There is a separate apartment with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fitted kitchen, lounge/dining room and games room. The apartment has its own entrance, terrace and parking so it is totally independently from the main house, but shares one of the terraces for easy access. All living areas and bedrooms have air conditioning and heating. The properties are situated in beautiful grounds with a mature garden and a children's play area. The garden makes an excellent venue for a special celebration or party. These properties are ideal for family or friends that want to holiday together. Only a 5 min drive away is the beautiful little village of Mijas, which nestles comfortably in the mountainside at 428 meters above sea level. 7km away you can enjoy all of the usual beach activities in Fuengirola. We recommend to maximise your sightseeing and shopping experience that you hire a car but if not there is a regular bus service between Mijas and Fuengirola just a short 5 min walk away. The property can sleep up to 22 when using the three sofa beds in Villa bedroom 1, 2 and in the games room but there will be a fee per person for more than 18 guests.

A great find!
Stayed at La Jacaranda late May for a week with 21 family members, and what can I say, the property certainly did not disappoint! It’s an absolutely stunning villa with beautiful views, great size, very clean, nice pool, and the owner Debbie was a second to none host… so efficient & helpful she really made the whole booking process a doddle, and throughout our stay if we had any queries she would respond within a short time via whatsapp. Getting about the area around the villa was made fairly easy by the regular buses at the top of the road (which was around a 5 minute walk away). The bus going up the hill which was only a short bus ride takes you to the picturesque hillside town of Mijas. When staying at La Jacaranda you can’t miss the opportunity of visiting this beautiful unspoilt place, despite many people being around when we visited 2 or 3 times it didn’t feel overly busy nor commercialised by any means, so it’s a real gem. Even the children in our party (aged from 8 months to 8 years old) really enjoyed it there what with plenty of tasty eatery’s, ice cream shops, a nice play area up by the church, and stunning views along the hill walls and gardens, so the town was good for all ages really, and importantly as well felt very safe. Going from the villa again but taking the bus down the hill on the opposite side of the road takes you to Fuengirola (approx a 15 minute bus ride) which was a nice seaside area, again good for all ages as the beach felt clean with nice sand, it’s more commercialised as it’s a large place but didn’t seem overcrowded or spoilt by holiday makers by any means at the time of year we went (I can’t comment how it would be for any other time of year though as it was our first time this side of Malaga). Anyway, in summary, we had a fantastic stay at La Jacaranda and spending time in the local area, and hope we can return again at some point in the future as either a large family stay or a group of friends. Thank you Debbie for letting your wonderful house out! :-)

Fantastic villa
I have just returned from a holiday in La Jacaranda and I loved every minute of it. For me it was the perfect villa, there was 25 of us on holiday and I was worried about people having there own space however the villa is that big it was easy to relax by yourself. The location means you are close enough to find easy transport to either Mijas or fuengirola but also out the way of any busy main road which is perfect when you have small kids. The fact that Debbie was always at hand to answer any questions prior to going and also helping to return items that were left, is a very special touch and gives it that personal touch you don't get at hotels. I can't recommend this Villa highly enough and will definitely be back. Will miss those stunning views from the pool side. Until next time..

Espectacular views
19 of us had a fantastic time at this villa. The rooms are lovely and the views of the mountains and coast are spectacular. Seeing the sunrise and sunset from one of the many terraces is a treat! Debbie the owner, is fabulous and she made the whole process stress free. We highly recommend this villa for a large group of friends and family. We would love to go back. The location is perfect, quiet but within very easy access to explore the Costa del Sol.

Such a beautiful place
Me and my friends had the most wonderful time staying at La Jacaranda. The house is beautiful and the views are exceptional. Mijas is such a cute and pretty areas of Spain. So many great places to eat and lots of little gift shops. You can spend hours strolling up and down the white washed lanes and coming across more bars and cute little shops. Debbie is the perfect host. Her communication leading up to the holiday was brilliant and during our stay she was so helpful with information about surrounding areas and transport etc. I think the cost of staying at la Jacaranda is extremely reasonable and we would definitely go again!

Great holiday
We stayed at la jacaranda for a week and it was home from home. It has absolutely everything you need for an relaxed villa holiday. The outside area at the front of the property is great of an evening to sit, chill, play table tennis, board games and bbq. The kitchen had a great supply of equipment , sharp knives, cooking utensils, Loads of crockery and cutlery, we had a weening baby with us and there was even a hand blender so his mum was able to make fresh food for him. Debbie was a great host, a couple of our party members asked for an early check in only a few days before we arrived and she did everything she could to accommodate this as well as meeting us on leaving the villa. We had an amazing time at la jacaranda and if we had the opportunity to all go on holiday together again we would definitely consider going back x

The PERFECT PLACE
Words cannot express what a gem La Jacaranda is, but I will try! We recently stayed for 5 days with our families and had our wedding here. We are from the States and booked La Jacaranda site-unseen and prayed that the pictures were a true reflection of the space... It was more than I could have dreamed of! The home was large enough to accommodate our wedding of 35 people and very comfortably slept 15 people. It was very clean and the grounds were impeccably kept. The location is great - very close to the center of Mijas, the beach, restaurants, and grocery stores. This place is perfect for large group gatherings. We grilled out one day, had a pool party another day, and of course our wedding. Our hosts Debbie and Simon were remarkable - They have a binder in the home that could answer any possible question and were so easily accessible by phone and email. Communication with them was easy and very prompt and they are such kind people. I know others are also having weddings here so if you're contemplating it don't hesitate! We had our ceremony on the main terrace, dinner in the garden, cocktail hour on the front terrace, and dancing back on the main terrace. Our guests could not believe their eyes and we could not be happier with the decision to book this villa. Thank you Debbie and Simon!!!!

Absolutely perfect, amazing stay
We stayed here for almost a week at the end of April with a large group of family and friends to celebrate our wedding....and we could not have hoped for a better venue or location, the pictures do not do it justice, it's perfect. We were looking for somewhere to stay which could also accommodate our ceremony, after a lot of searching we came across Debbie's place and made some enquiries-from our first communication Debbie could not have been more helpful and accommodating, she answered every question really quickly and gave us loads of advice and local hints and tips. The villa itself is stunning, it fit 23 of us more than comfortably across the bedrooms with plenty of communal space and loads of outdoor areas , it never felt too crowded. The rooms are lovely, particularly the master suites with views to die for! Pool area is great, again loads of room and there's also a play area for kids and a lovely peaceful garden area. We held our ceremony on the large sun terrace, overlooking the hills down to the sea. The pictures are awesome, and the experience unforgettable. We then had a BBQ meal round at the covered terrace at the front of the house, catered by Audrey who was recommended to us by debbie who was also fabulous! This villa is ideal for small to large groups for any purpose really, but a cracking venue for a wedding or other special event. We can't thank debbie enough for everything and would highly recommend it....thanks again Debbie!

Homely stay
La Jacaranda has a very homely feel. It's not a show-home where you daren't touch anything in case you leave a mark, but that's good as far as I'm concerned. You had the feeling it was your own place and my guests were coming to stay with me. The gardens are excellent, as are the views. A great place to relax and have fun.

About the neighborhood
There is so much to do in the area and so many places to visit. For the children and adults there are water parks, theme parks, zoos, dolphin shows, tree top adventure and many parks and of course beaches. There are now water parks in the sea, boats to hire and many different types of water sports. If sightseeing is your thing then below I have picked three of my favourites but there are many more. Malaga City (29km drive) is dubbed the Capital of the Costa del Sol. Once considered the poor cousin of Andalusia's capital city, Seville, it now competes successfully for attention, thanks to its profusion of quirky museums and it's delightful pedestrianised centre. The Picasso museum is a must see. Muelle Uno is the latest addition, a contemporary leisure complex in the port where you can shop in the designer stores, eat in the varied selection of restaurants while watching the cruise ships. In addition there is new party district called SOHO that is bringing a new bohemian edge to the city. Puerto Banus (39km drive) is located in the Nueva Andalucia suburb of Marbella, 6km to the west of the town centre, just before you reach the small town of San Pedro de Alcantara.Although it may at first appear as a developed old Spanish fishing village with an impressive mountain backdrop, Puerto Banus was in fact designed and built in 1970 by local property developer José Banús as a luxury marina and shopping complex. Officially named Puerto Jose Banus, after the architect who designed the town, Puerto Banús is known as Costa del Sol's playground for the rich and wealthy that come here for the beaches, the beach clubs and the buzzing nightlife. The shops and restaurants reflect this expensive lifestyle, with plenty of designer names on offer around the marina. If you enjoy people-watching and are there during the summer months you'll never be short of popstars or reality TV stars to spot. If sports cars and big boats are more your thing, don't worry, there are plenty of Ferraris and luxury yachts to admire. EL CHORRO – 82km drive Imagine three stunningly beautiful turquoise coloured lakes bordered by pine forests. A tranquil retreat where you can swim, hire kayaks or peddle boats or picnic on the lake shore. Hardly sounds like a typical Andalucian scene, does it! But west of Alora that is what you will find. Malaga's 'Lake District' is in fact three artificial lakes created by a dam built across the dramatic 200m. high Guadalhorce river gorge, known as the Garganta del Chorro. Watch out for the eagles which continually circle around the sheer cliffs. From your journey through the Valle de Abdalajis you will arrive at the small village of El Chorro and your first sight of the dam and gorge area. There is a small bridge across the middle of the gorge, built during the construction of the reservoir between 1914 and 1921. A day out not to be missed.
Getting around
We recommend that you hire a car to make the most of sight seeing and for convenience for shopping etc. However we do have a bus stop at the end of our road that has a regular bus service to both Mijas Pueblo and Fuengirola. Fuengirola has a train station that has a service to Benalmadena, Plaza Mayor, Airport and Malaga Central and a few more stops in-between. We also have a reliable taxi service in Mijas Pueblo who knows where we are. Therefore if you don't want to drive then there are plenty of transport options.

How to get there
1.On leaving Málaga airport following all signs to Algeciras which will take you onto the A7(N340) – DO NOT GO TOWARDS MALAGA . Stay on the A7 (N340) in the direction Algerciras for about 15km. Keep going until you see junction 214 at which point the A7(N340) forks, the left fork going off to the toll road and the right fork remaining on the old road signed Fuengirola/Algeciras. Do not get into the middle lane but keep right at this fork. About 1 Km after this fork the road forks again to the right at junction 213. Take this slip road signed Fuengirola/Mijas (black on white sign). At the end of the slip road is a large roundabout. Turn right at this roundabout towards Mijas. (A387). Drive straight on towards Mijas - straight on over three roundabouts. The first has three olive trees, the second three other trees (not sure what!!) and the third three olive trees again. Road turns into dual carriageway (overtaking lane) – after first roundabout – after the third one you go round 3 or 4 bends and take first right into our estate - Los Espartales II. (There is a white wall with all the house names on, and four different coloured bins). Go straight down the road and round a right hand bend. Carry on straight and bare left up a small hill. We are first house round the left bend. Park outside second gate on the left. Its easier than its sounds!! Full address is: La Jacaranda, Urb Los Espartales 12, Mijas 29650
