I set out in October last year to find a villa for a 'Big Birthday' which would meet pretty exacting criteria and which would appeal to grown-up daughters and their boyfriends/ friends as well.... near an airport with direct low cost flights to Edinburgh, pretty much guaranteed sun in late May / early June, 3 double bedrooms, pool, space for everyone to do their own thing, walking distance to at least some bars/ restaurants, near coast, taxi-able into Marbella / nightlife, bit of a wow factor etc etc. Casa Poco met all of these and more. As others have said, the outside kitchen complete with second dishwasher and fridge freezer is a great facility and saves much carrying. The bedroom layout where every room has direct pool access also suited our type of family group. Nigel was very helpful and reassuring when making the booking and Ellie from the agency also could not be faulted. I called her one evening with a minor problem and although I was just asking where something could be found to resolve it, she turned up in person to offer help within just 5 minutes. We all thought Casa Poco Loco was great and the only regret was that a week was too short to make the most of all the facilities! Views were fantastic (Gibralter visitble on several days)

What a wonderful villa fully equipped. Very comfortable in and out. The welcome by the agent was friendly and informative
Great location 5 minutes walk to 3 restaurants and super market. 15 minutes to the beach area and more restaurants and super market's. We managed without a hire car as we like to walk every where. We have already booked to return 2015

“Genuinely luxurious - NOT”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

I have deliberated over whether to give this anything higher than a 3. The others in our party wanted to give a 2. We stayed in the villa for a 2 week stay in early June 2013. My group has rented many houses/villas/casas around the world and I would have to say this was the most disappointing. We would not recommend this villa for the money. After reviewing all the descriptions and pictures, we expected a whole lot more than what we got. The “genuinely luxurious” statement in the description is absolute over statement. The only thing that saved this villa from a 1 was the patio area and views.

Firstly, this villa is a tri-level space with breathtaking views off the patio. The patio area is the real living space of the villa with the outdoor kitchen. We spent most of our days enjoying the sea air and sunshine. The outdoor kitchen was handy as long as you did not want to plug in any additional appliances. We tripped the circuit breaks daily. Depending on the location of breaker, it was multiple times a day. The Pool was not heated and could be a little cold when first entered. One safety issue worth mentioning is that there is no hand hold for the steep steps in the pool, getting out was a little tricky when your feet are wet on slick tile. The hot tub was large enough for 4 people, but we were not able to use it. The water was so overly chlorinated that it burned your eyes to get near it without the cover. We attempted one soak and it ended up with blue fingernails, skin irritation and bleached out suits. We alerted Ely, but got no resolution other than to say the pool man would look into it. The main Kitchen in the house was so small and so lacking in basic needs that I would not have categorized it as a kitchen, but an efficiency. It did not even have on standard oven, just a portable toaster oven appliance. I understand that vacation is about indulging, but we went self-catering just so we could eat in on occasion. Luckily there was a BBQ on the patio. The bedrooms were large enough for our needs, but if you were looking for 2 double beds, then you will be disappointed. The Master bedroom is 2 twins put together and not a double/queen as described. The Villa was defined as 3 bathrooms, but what it did not say was that the third bathroom was on the main level where as the bedrooms were on the lower level. Using the 3rd bathroom was very inconvenient for our stay. Water backing up in the showers was also a major concern. Having a car is a must, even though we were told a bus line was near-by, we never saw a bus. We contacted a scooter company for rentals, but in the end decided the area was not conducive to using a scooter (fast traffic on the main road and no intersecting roads to stay off the main highway). The idea that we had to unlock and lock gates going into/out of the house was not nice. We had issues with the locks sticking making it difficult to unlock or lock so we ended up leaving a few unlocked for the duration. The villa is on a busy residential street that has many cars parked on the curbs. A proficiency with backing vehicles into small narrow spaces is a must. The smaller the car the better. The car port is angled so you will either have to back in for easy pull out or pull in for harder back out. Watch out for the Big gates on the entrance to the car port.

This is very disappointing and at odds with nearly all other recent reviews. Why did this group take over one year to make a review? Spanish electrics are not as in the USA or UK but we have a new circuit breaker in place so downtimes are very rare. We have never claimed the pool is heated, in the Spanish sun it is extremely useful to cool down! I don't know what this group of ladies expected but 95% of other European guests have truly enjoyed our villa. C'est la vie.
