“A lovely spacious villa with beautiful views”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We had a lovely time with friends at Casa Del Buho.

I think the price paid was a premium price and the villa wasn't Premium as it needed some work around it as it was looking tired in places. A broken toilet seat and shower (which we were not told about upon arriving) and the pool (although working on a timer) had gone dirty and green not even half way through the two weeks we were there.
For me the pool is a big part of a sun holiday and this one needed some TLC as it was green around the tiles, there were broken tiles and some sharp edges which found childrens feet.

But, the views were amazing, the space you had within the villa was great for two families to stretch out with plenty of sun and shade for when you needed it. The facilities available were great. Couldn't get the TV to work but the WIFI worked great throughout the villa.

I would go back to this villa but not for the price we paid if it had a bit of maintenance to the pool.

These last two reviews are from same families staying at the villa at same time. As previously stated the toilet seat was on order and now been replaced and at no point was the pool water green, but was regularly checked and maintained as sun tan lotion can cause problems in the very hot summer months. I would like to just add that all guests so far that have holidayed at this villa have all been more than happy and im just sorry these two families felt disappointed with the house.

“Holiday 29/7/15 to 12/8/15”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a fantastic holiday at Casa del buho, The house is beautiful and very spacious we went with friends and there was plenty of room, although there were some negatives in the top bathroom the toilet seat was broken, in the master bedroom the shower was taped up so we couldn't use it properly and when you had a bath once you pulled out the plug the water ran down the wall in the bedroom over an electric point we dare not use that socket! We were told by Clair that it would be sorted but never was Infact we never once saw Clair her husband Tim did come to see to the pool when it's filters stopped working who was very polite, we did have to email twice and rang Clair's phone but she never answered would I go back to this villa? Probably not.

I did email these guests numerous times and i told them the toilet seat was on order which has now been replaced including the sliding pole for the shower which did not affect the shower working, as to the bath leaking into the downstairs this is the first we have heard of it so will now look into the problem. My husband simon went on a few occasions to check the pool and explained the pool was working but on a timer. I am sorry you were not happy..

We arrived back from cassa del buho yesterday after a 10 day break.The villa is a very spacious property spread over various levels.It it extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need a true home from home.The pool was fantastic and the scenery was glorious.I couldn't fault this place at all it was simply brilliant.Clair the house manager was only a phone call away and nothing was too much trouble.If you want a holiday in the sun away from the crowds to chill and completely get away this is the place for you we loved it it's exactly as the pictures show.Thanks Clair

“Wonderful villa with spectacluar views”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

Just returned from a fabulous week with another family at Casa del Buho near Comares. The beautiful, well equipped villa is very spacious and has lots of little shady spots with a courtyard with an olive tree and bougainvillea near the outside dining area. We enjoyed eating the figs and lemons from the trees on the property. The views from the villa and the pool were spectacular and the table tennis was a big hit!
It's a 10-15 minute walk up to two of the restaurants on the outskirts of the pretty hilltop village of Comares, but to get right to the heart of the village may take up to 30 minutes in the heat! We also visited table mountain restaurant in Los Venturros - about 5 minutes drive. The villa is off the beaten track, high up in the mountains. It was fabulous for a get away from it all break. We were happy to potter in the local area, and even did a bit of cycling from the property, but if you wanted to do a lot of visits, be prepared for a 30 minute drive back down the mountain.

“Excellent living”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very nice house with an exceptional view of the mountain. Fully equiped kitchen.
Very nice landlord who even helped us with a breakfast package since we arrived at night.
If you arrive in Malaga be sure to travel via Velez Malaga, othwise you will have quite a trip ahead of you.

“Peaceful and picturesque taste of rustic Spain”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Very spacious villa with plenty of room for a larger group. I travelled with a friend and a total of 5 children, aged from 9 to 13 years. This is such a relaxing environment with gorgeous views, super pool and a range of areas in which to eat or simply soak up the sun. If you've ever done a James Villas holiday just think Best of James and you've got the idea. The owner was great, even arranging for us to be picked up and dropped back at Malaga airport - a big ask when there are seven people to ferry around! A super 'bolt hole' and definitely worth a visit. (The table tennis was a hit with the teenagers too!)

“Wonderful find”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have been hearing rave reviews about this villa for years from friends who regularly holiday here After our first visit we can now understand why. Where to start? The views? The villa? The position? We were totally overwhelmed by it all. The villa is so comfortable and easily accommodated the four adults and four teenagers in our party, with its three bathrooms and very generous layout. Most of our time was spent either next to or in the pool which has unbelievable views across the mountains and down the valley to the sea. When we were persuaded to leave the villa we would nip up to the picturesque village of Comares for a spot of people watching and fab coffee in the square. It has been one of the most relaxing holidays we have for years. A big thank you to the managers Simon and Clair. Not only was the villa immaculate and in great working order but we were also very grateful for the transportation to and from the airport
See you next year !!!
