Charming country house with fabulous sea views, private pool, 5 minutes to beach



Updated: 18-Oct-2016
4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 1 Separate Toilet, Sleeps up to 8

Cortijo Coscojica is a tasteful, secluded house nestled on a small hill with superb views of the surrounding valley and sea. The house is peaceful and tranquil yet close to the bars, restaurants and nightlife of Mojácar. Built recently on the plot of a ruin, we have taken great care to retain much of the original charm of that building whilst incorporating many modern touches. The floor is laid with handmade terracotta tiles throughout and the wooden beamed ceilings are high, allowing for large windows, giving on to spectacular views.

There is a 4x10 metre swimming pool with its own pool house, perfect for sitting in the shade, and there are sun beds for those that enjoy sunbathing. There is a gate between the house and the pool ideal for keeping small children safe. The extensive gardens are well tended and planted with many different species.

Neither the house nor the pool are overlooked by any neighbours, as the buildings are set in over 7 acres of land.

The house is powered by the sun. There is an extensive array of solar panels discretely hidden on the roof. Due to the size of the solar system you are unlikely to ever be aware that all the power being used in the house comes directly from the sun. Staying here will reduce your carbon footprint! The house has all the usual amenities, including dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washing machine. There are ceiling fans throughout the house. There is shade for two cars in the carport at the front of the house; there is plenty of room for more cars just below.

The kitchen is extremely light and spacious, with a lot of counter space and a bar with 3 stools. It is fully equipped with a dishwasher, gas oven, a 5 ring hob and large fridge/freezer. Other kitchen gadgets include an orange juice squeezer, Magimix and hand blender.

The best, most unspoiled beaches in the area are nearby. Beyond Macenas there are several beaches that have no buildings on them - although there is a beach bar that was originally built for the film 'Treasure Island' at the end of the track.

Carboneras and the Cabo de Gata Natural Park lie a 10 minute drive to the south. Carboneras is still very unspoiled and has a fantastic selection of fish restaurants as well as an lively market on Thursdays. Further on lies Agua Amarga, the first of many pretty fishing villages in the natural park, and some the finest beaches on the Spanish coast.

We stayed here for two weeks this summer. The house is beautiful, lovely open plan layout and a real homely feel to it. We had an amazing time and are planning to return next year!

Both Tomasina and Jasper were wonderful and so welcoming. The house is very well equipped with everything from toys for my young son to a cool box and parasol for the beach. The welcome pack was a lovely addition and more than expected. We travelled with a 4 year old and two elderly relatives (85 years old) the house suited both age groups.

There are so many nice things to be said about this villa, we will certainly be returning.

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed home, great pool, great views. Close to great beaches and restaurants but far enough away to relax in privacy

A truly special villa

  • 5 of 5

I can not recommend this villa highly enough. I spent Easter week at Tomasina and Jasper's beautiful house along with my husband, two young children and our friends and their two kids. We all agreed it was one of our happiest holidays. The villa is not only beautiful and well designed, it is also homely and very well equipped , with good quality linen, lots of towels, loads of kitchen equipment, interesting art and history books and plenty of toys and films for the children. The views, the garden and pool area are stunning and our children were in heaven - playing on the rope swing, going off on mad cross country adventures and swimming in the pool. Tomasina and Jasper were also very kind and generous hosts. We promised ourselves that we would return!

Gorgeous place

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at this property with friends. The location is lovely with views to the sea. We didn't spend much time in Mojacar because it was so nice to stay at the house! The villa was great, really generously appointed and stylish. Everything we needed was provided. Best of all, our kids were able to run free around the extensive grounds. They played in the kids 'Den' outside, went off on adventures in the hills, swam in the pool and generally had a lot of freedom and fun. We loved every minute of our holiday and will be sure to return.

Close to of Apeldoorn (midst of The Netherlands)

One of a kind - very special

  • 4 of 5

Having rented a lot of villas and other house types in Spain and other countries, we found the house of Tomasina and Jasper very special. Very private and yet close to the beach, the mountains and some nice villages, we enjoyed every day of our 14 days holiday. Especially the swimming pool area (with its view to the sea and the bizar mountains surrounding) we like a lot. We have felt very welcome, nothing was 'too much' , the house is both simple and stylish, and we would highly recommend people to go to the Almeria area. Less touristic, beautiful nature, very nice wine and superb, affordable food (tapas)...Warm regards, Rob and Meta, The Netherlands
