Really nice Finca, exactly as described! Owner is brilliant to deal with
The property is very spacious both inside and out, with lots of different areas for families and friends to have communal activities as well as space away from each other if needed!
Bedrooms are all a good size with comfy beds and furnishings, and importantly have aircon that makes the heat of August in Spain liveable.
The living areas were good - lounge had a couple of large sofas which were older but comfy, plus a large tv with netflix/freeview for when you want downtime. The dining area had a large table to seat 8/10 easily, and the kitchen was very large with all of the white goods you'd expect including 2 large fridges for the essential drinks! Tap water is safe to drink as you would in the UK.
Outside was the best bit of the finca for our family - the terrace outside the kitchen was our home for the 2 weeks we stayed at the property. Great views, plenty of furniture, a gas bbq, an outside covered dining area and overall feeling of space made for a lovely experience.
The pool was safe and clean - not too deep (4 ft maybe) and had plenty of seating and plants/trees to make it feel both private and attractive to look at.
You're not overlooked at all in any area of the villa so you can wander around in any state of undress should you choose!
The property is about 15mins drive from shops in La Cala de Mijas where there are Lidl/Aldi and local supermarkets with plenty of excellent choices in food/drink. Fuengirola, Benalmedena, Marbella and Malaga are all within about 30mins drive and are bigger towns with more choice in shopping and food.
The property is in a lovely group of 5 or 6 houses and it's quiet, so there are no noisy neighbours/tourists or deliveries to worry about. Also, it's in an area of fantastic beauty surrounded by mountains and valleys, and as it's relatively remote with no street lights and dark skies, the stars at night are something special.
Top tips -
The Bioparc in Fuengirola was a good 1/2 day visit for all ages, Aquavelis water park was brilliant and much quieter than Aquamijas, dolphin spotting from Benamedena was brilliant and worth every penny.
Get a map and a correct phone number from the owner, the directions are a little vague and it's a bit further on than you think!
Overall, it was a great property with a fantastic owner in a lovely area of Spain. Would recommend and will probably be back!
Fantastic Location, Fantastic Villa, Fantastic Host.
We had an excellent holiday. The area and villa exceeded our expectations. We could not have asked for a more friendly and helpful host. Steve added that little extra, thank you. We will definitely recommend and return. 10/10
Thank you for such a positive review I am really glad you had a wonderful time at my property and hope to see you next year
Great stay at Finca dos Santos
Fabulous spacious property with so many outdoor and indoor sitting areas around it. In a lovely garden setting with great views. Lots of kitchen appliances - most of which we didn't use! Not far from Mijas and exceptionally convenient for golfers playing at La Cala Golf. Steve was very helpful and gave us clear directions for our arrival. He even got in breakfast items for us due to our late arrival. Gated entrance with plenty parking.
Thank you for a great review . Glad you found the property to your likeing and you enjoyed your golfing holiday
Lovely house, stunning views
My family and I stayed at the finca for the second year running in September 2018 and it did not disappoint again. The finca is lovely, lots of indoor and outdoor space with a variety of seating areas. The pool area has sun for the majority of the day and the pool is perfect for children, still lovely and warm in late September. Outdoor dining area easily seats 8 and there is a great gas bbq too. Great rental house that I would highly recommend.
Expansive property in a secluded area
Very spacious and full of character. Steve would do pretty much anything for you and is a good source of information and is not far away. It was let down a little by the services (electrical, plumbing and fittings) however if I could give 4.5 stars I would. You will need a car to get around. Would we go back! absolutely.
Thank you for your comments. I am not sure what you mean about the electrics and plumbing fittings as I check the villa before every arrival to make sure everything is in order. It would be helpful if guests mentioned when they are staying any problems they have .Thank you for a 4 star rating
beautiful villa with stunning views
Enjoyed our week in this spacious and comfortable villa. The location is really special with beautiful views over the river bed and into the hills. The villa has been tastefully decorated in a characterful way. Steve the owner is on hand and very helpful with any questions or special requests.
