We really enjoyed our stay at this spacious, well equipped villa. The views were fabulous. The owner was very quick to respond to any problems we encountered. I would not however agree with the statement that a car is not necessary. I personally ( a pensioner) could not manage the extremely steep incline back to the villa each evening. The nearest grocery store is also further up a very steep hill. Benalmadena Marina is a 20 minute drive away in a taxi. I would recommend this villa to a friend but only if they hire a car.
The villa was stunning with fantastic views and excellent facilities and had a real homely feel to the villa. Placed on both the edge of Benalmadena and Fuengirola you have the option of going in either direction, but for a lovely beach you do not have to go anywhere else. Having such wonderful views of the wide area, you are located in an elevated position and that should be considered for anybody that is not a walker should you be without a car.
