“Beautiful villa and gardens”

people found this review helpful

First time we stayed outside nerja. This villa is just outside the main centre of friglianna. We have kids of 15 and 13 and the villa was perfect for us. When we entered there was a collective wow from everyone. The apartment which you stay in is part of a very beautiful looking villa so you benefit with the gardens and pool of a large villa. The swimming pool and gardens are stunning. The patio area and furniture are perfect for a night at the villa. Friglianna is beautiful and restaurants are really good. We used to drive in in the evening and get taxi back.(8 euros) I walked to get car in morning (About 30 minutes hilly walk). Adam the owner was always available with information and booking process was easy. Would definitely recommend. One tiny moan was from one of the kids who said the wifi isn't great.
Thanks again Adam for being so helpful.

“Utterly beautiful ...”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just returned home after a one week stay at Casa Isla Bonita and I honestly feel quite privileged to have stayed there. There isn't anything to fault, the outside area around the pool is utterly beautiful and the views are captivating. Inside, the apartment is cool and spacious, the beds are comfy, the kitchen is well equipped and we were even lucky enough to have some fresh fruit waiting for us on arrival.
I can't wait to come back here and in some ways I am reluctant to write such a glowing review in fear it is forever booked up!
Our son is aged 8 and has Asperger syndrome, so this was his first holiday and I think we may have set the bar too high as no other villas will come close! He is obsessed with nature and was delighted by the abundance of wildlife and on the last day, there were a pair of eagles circling over the mountains that came quite close, he was in heaven!
Thanks for letting us share a piece of your paradise!
Nia, Dom and Noah

“Beautiful Villa with lovely views”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

We are a family of four with teenagers aged 17 (while we stayed at the villa) and 15 and had a lovely 2 week stay in August. We hired a car from Malaga airport and the directions provided by Adam for the villa were perfect.

On arrival, via Lidl which is only a mile down the hill towards Nerja, we found everything to be perfect and this remained the case throughout our stay. The visiting gardeners and pool cleaners were so unobtrusive as to not really notice they were there. The BBQ was brilliant and we used it almost every night and pool and patio furniture were fantastic.

We ventured to Nerja for lunch twice, and Frigiliana for dinner once (be prepared for the hilly walk if travelling on foot) and would recommend the waterpark at Velez Malaga if you have children.

If you're after a completely relaxing break then this is a fantastic villa to hire, and reasonable priced as well!

Thank you for your kind words and compliments.
We certainly make a lot of effort to maintain our apartment at the highest level. It's great when we get recognition for the effort.
I will pass your compliments on to the maintenance team.
Thank you again

“Fantastic gardens”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Excellent and cool apartment, well furnished, clean and finished to a very high spec. The outside space was definitely the highlight. Gardens and pool were well maintained and we also made full use of the barbecue and outside eating areas with stunning views over the gardens towards Nerja and the sea. Tempting not to leave the place but it is well placed to visit Malaga, Granada, Frigiliana and the sights around Nerja (caves, market + Rio Chillar walk). Adam very helpful throughout. Definitely hope to be back !

Never stayed in a villa before, always a Hotel, and after staying here, I have happily changed my mind. Beautiful villa, stunning outside area, everything was just so simple. Nothing negative to say, just perfect.
