this town house in Mijas Pueblo couldn't be beaten on it's location, as the views from all of the terraces are stunning. we loved to sit out in the morning with our coffee and watch the hawk hunting.
the village itself is so clean with fantastic restaurants, and friendly people. We visited this village 2 year ago and since then it has had beautiful fountains added to the main square, as well as a lift to the higher level. the local residents take great care and pride in their village and the plants and hanging basket display is stunning.
Mijas is easy to reach by train and bus from Malaga airport but seems another world away once there, as it is so tranquil, but with all necessary amenities. I can't wait to return!
However, I would not use this property again, it is a beautiful old town house with lots of lovely features and the pool was fantastic (while we were there the pool maintenance man came and I can vouch that it is spotless clean) unfortunately, the house itself was not! the back stair to the pool was filthy and thick with dust, and in the master bedroom there was dirty underwear from previous visitors, under the dressing table. the house had all necessary equipment to make a good stay but I felt we could not use the kitchen for hygiene reasons, and so; had to eat out all of the time. In general the house had a bit of a run down feeling and could do with some upgrading, particularly the kitchen and en suite and loo off of the kitchen. I do expect more comfortable living conditions for the price, I have booked many holiday properties and another in this village(which was unavailable) and for less cost or around the same. I have never had any issues, so I have come to expect a certain standard.. I booked this from the pictures and will say they are accurate but it was the things that cannot be portrayed that disappointed. Although, as I have already mentioned the location of this house could not be bettered. if the house was to be upgraded then I would definitely not hesitate to return. if the owners do upgrade, I hope they retain the character.
please, don't let my review put you off as we did enjoy the stay for the views and the pool. Also, I am a bit OCD when it comes to cleanliness.
What a wonderful holiday we had in this beautiful village .the house was everything we could have wished for and more .breathtaking views from every window .swimming pool fabulous .I could go on and on .it was just lovely to stay here .
Where do we start! Firstly the house, well what a beautiful house, comfortable with all the amenities you needed! The terraces (3!) had the most wonderful views and the pool area was so tranquil. We always stay in fincas, Villas, houses but this is the best yet. Secondly the location could not have been better. The house is in the old part of the village, but only a few minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle of this beautiful village with lots of lovely little shops, restaurants etc. The views are just amazing from the village and really do take your breath away. There is just nothing negative we can say about this property and Ariane was very quick and efficient with her responses to us when booking.
We will definitely be back and maybe as soon as next year, we loved it!!
