About Kate Petrides
I am a doctor specialising in back pain and sports injuries. I am married to Kate who organises the bookings for our villas and we have three children. We have had many amazing family holidays in Coin at Villa Maria and Finca Tropical.
Kate Petrides purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Kate Petrides chose Coín
The villa is situated in a beautiful and peaceful location but the traditional Spanish town of Coin is nearby with its restaurants, cinema and shopping. There is a large terrace area with stunning views across the valley.
What makes this Villa unique
Amazing views, tranquil location, comfortable villa. Large private pool. Airconditioning and Wifi. Plenty of space to play outdoor games and relax by the pool. Lovely shaded dining area by the pool.

Please turn off the air conditioning during the day and keep the windows closed to prevent insects coming into the house.

Relaxing break with fantastic mountain views
Just finished our week break at Villa Maria in Coin
The place took a little finding at first but once there, what a lovely place
If we needed to know anything a quick message to Kate the owner and straight away she was there to give us little snippets about the area.
Villa Maria is a lovely mountain retreat with fabulous views and has everything you possibly need, better wifi than we have in the U.K. Coin town is just a short drive away with plenty of places to eat and drink
Mijas is just 30 mins away and is well worth the trip.
Would strongly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a chill out week, we even had eagles soaring over in the afternoon sun to give us a display while we lounges around the beautiful pol area complete with a nice shaded dining area to escape the hot sun
Well worth the trip and hope to return soon

I am glad you had such a relaxing week at Villa Maria and enjoyed the pool and dining terrace. Coin certainly has plenty to offer in the way of tapas bars and restaurants and it sounds like Mijas was a hit too. Hopefully you will return and explore the area more in the future. All the best Kate
Can't wait to go back!
***No hire car required***
We loved our stay at villa Maria, so much so that we asked to stay another week! To do this without a car you need to WhatsApp A1 taxis with the GPS coordinates of the villa (provided by Kate) and where you want to go.
The taxi driver helped us take out our rubbish and with all our shopping.
The villa is beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking. The pool was lovely and very well maintained.
Kate and Simon were extremely helpful and made our stay as comfortable as possible.
We give it 5+ stars and can't wait to go back
Colin and Stevie
Glad you had a good holiday! You are welcome back any time!
Villa Maria in Coin
The outside space is lovely, the pool is clean and big and the view into the valley is lovely. However, there is no view to the pool from the villa unless you look out of a bedroom window. Not great if you need to watch young children. The inside space is small with just two bedrooms. The kitchen and living space is fine and the choice of TV good. The one really bad thing were the beds, they were very noisy and so unconfortable (very hard). They really need to be replaced. Air conditioning was good.
Thank you for your review and I take on board your comments about the beds. I am sorry you did not find them comfortable and I have arranged to replace them as I like to ensure the comfort of my guests. Regarding your comment re the visibility of the pool from the villa, I am afraid that is something we cannot change. However, I feel that the gated pool area contributes towards safety of young children, discouraging wandering from the front to the back of the villa where the pool is. There is no substitute of course for rigorous supervision at all times of young children around water.
All the best
Lovely villa and location.
Stayed in villa Maria for a week in July 2015 with my husband and teenage daughter and we all loved it. Beautiful views from the pool area :) It's not the biggest villa but has everything you need and we felt very relaxed and comfortable here the Wifi is perfect :) The location is a little remote but we liked that and you are only a 5 minute drive into town. The village of Coin has everything you need, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and is very traditional.
Was easy to book the villa, professional service and I recommend to all. I fell in live with the villa and town and would return in a heartbeat. Many thanks for a perfect holiday.
Shhhh....don't tell everyone about it!
Excellent location, beautiful views, great pool, good facilities - no wonder there are so few reviews; everyone wants to keep it to themselves!
For a 2-bed villa this one is very spacious, both inside & out. Kitchen large & well equipped, with large open counter to living room, which makes cooking a much more sociable activity. Shower room is quite small but functional, all clean & well-maintained. Bedrooms have ample storage, mattresses could be more comfortable but OK for a week or 2.
The outside space is idyllic: large pool & shady terrace, peaceful west-facing views till sunset, fruit trees to harvest... Sadly the pool shower does not work for some reason, but the pool itself is great & sun loungers are more comfortable than most. Owner was responsive to queries & refunded deposit promptly.
Coin is a nice, unpretentious town with plenty to do if you want - really only 5 mins away when you get used to the route. We recommend the 'ventas' (type of rural, family-run restaurant in this area) for authentic, local, good value food.
Marbella is only about 20 mins away on a good, fast road, well worth visiting the covered municipal market for fresh fish, meat, veg (& excellent kitchen knives!), the picturesque old town for interesting shops & tapas bars - oh, and the seafront, of course!
We'd be quite happy to come back here every year, & certainly will return again soon.
Peace perfect Peace..
Villa Maria is a wonderful place to getaway and relax surrounded by avocado, figs, oranges and lemon trees.
The property itself was very clean and contained everything you could ever need. It was like a home from home and we all felt very comfortable there.
The outside area is excellent, with good size pool, loungers and eating area with tables and chairs which is in a shaded postition. The views are spectacular and the sky at night breathtaking.
I wouldnt recommend the property to elderly people or young party people as you have to drive up the windy hill to reach "civilisation".
Villa Maria is the perfect place to get away from it all, a place to stop and relax and this was exactly what it gave us.
Coin is an attractive, unspoilt town, about 25 minutes drive from the coast. Coin has a good range of amenities including shops, restaurants, bars etc., and a large supermarket. Villa Maria enjoys a semi-rural location peacefully located on a hillside about 5 minutes by car from Coin. The views across the valley are wonderful. Puerto Banus, Marbella and the beaches are jus 25 minutes drive away. The villa is about 5 mins by car from the town. There is a small local shop about 15 minutes stroll from the villa which stocks day to day essentials. If you are looking for a peaceful break away from the crowds with lovely scenery but within easy reach of the town and beaches this is an ideal location. A wealth of activities are available in the surrounding area and there's a superb choice of golf courses to suit every standard.
Other Activities: Beautiful walks in surrounding countryside. 25 mins drive to a wide selection of beaches
Golf: The nearest golf course is Alhaurin el Grande and Lauro golf both within 15 mins drive. There are dozens of other golf courses within 30 mins to 1 hour's drive to suit all standards. Clay pigeon shooting, quad biking, tennis, cycling, horse riding/trekking, rifle shooting, Go-karting, wolf park, beautiful walks, lakes, fishing, country club all available within easy reach of the villa.
