About Andy Lee or Angela Hinton

We are based in Leeds, England and have owned our villa since 2003.

We bought because we just loved the area, the lake, mountains and beautiful whitewashed villages dotted all around in the mountains.

We holiday in Lake Vinuela every year and love it as much now as we did back in 2003 when we first visited.

Our knowledge of the area is pretty good and so if you have any questions about either the villa or the area, please don't hesitate in getting in touch

Andy Lee or Angela Hinton purchased this villa in 2003

What makes this villa unique

As soon as we viewed the property we knew it was for us and of course, our guests! It has uninterrupted views of the lake and mountains and we just love the peace and tranquillity that surrounds the villa. We were also very impressed with the easy access, as many properties in the area are situated along long unmade roads.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful holiday at your lovely villa.....the views were absolutely amazing. We would definitely like to go back some time.

Lovely Villa with Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed on Lake Vinuela before and it is just breathtaking! The area is just pure unspoiled vista. The villa was nice and clean and the new managers Ian & Debbie were very helpful when we needed help. My only negative comment is that there is very little shade during the day by the pool and whilst the canopy is there, you cannot all squeeze under unless packed like sardines or share loungers - not conducive to a relaxing afternoon I can tell you! I do think that investing in a decent parasol would make it perfect. There is a parasol base, but it is so heavy you cannot move it, but we did use the beach parasol there a few times and just moved the lounger about chasing the shade. One point to note is that it really is necessary to get at least some food shopping on the way from the airport as shops are closed on Sundays. The organic bakery in Los Romanes is fab and worth seeking out - especially their fruit & nut loaf for breakfast (best to reserve for the following day as they sell out quickly). Hotel Vinuela is really lovely for a nice evening meal - slightly more expensive than other restaurants but much cheaper than you'd pay in the UK for a top hotel meal. We were there on a jazz night and it was just lovely dining in the garden with fantastic service, live music and amazing food and wine (especially the local dessert wine). The watersports centre (Malaga-outdoor) at the lake was also really good - great value, fun and run by a lovely couple - nothing too much trouble. Many thanks Andy & Angela for the loan of your lovely villa.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments Mandy. We have noted your point regarding shade around the pool and there are now two extra large (3 metre diameter) parasols on the pool terrace. With regards Sunday shopping, there are two English mini market shops in Puente Don Manuel (10 mins drive from the villa) that are open on Sunday, where you can buy a selection of groceries. We look forward to welcoming you again to our villa sometime in the future.

Nice stay at villa maroma

  • 4 of 5

Just had a fantastic stay. Great views over The Lake and mountains. Everything In The House is Well functioning. 3 large sleeping rooms With aircon - Nice!. Large kitchen With all new owen, freezer etc.

Great pool area also With fantastic views. The pool area is not Connected to The main terrasse so you have to go around The House. It works! It Would be great if The pool area had some more sunshade With a Big parasol or something like that.

Thanks for The stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Mikkel, have to confess, we've owned the villa for 14 years now and we never take that view for granted! Just to mention we had a very large wind out canopy fitted on the pool terrace which can be partially seen in a couple of our photos, it provides shade for at least four sunbeds for the entire day. We had a parasol with the table and chairs, however, being in the mountains, it can sometimes get windy and we lost it a number of times! We therefore fitted the canopy instead. There are also a couple of natural shaded areas on the terrace provided by the rubber plant and the villa itself.

lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely break in Villa Maroma (April 2017). Just perfect, the villa was easy to reach a lovely location with great views over Lake Vinuela. The villa was immaculate with everything you need plus great little extras that make a difference - beach towels and cool box and plenty of seating by both the pool and the terrace in both the shade or sun. We were very lucky with the weather and know the area well so had some lovely trips and meals out but also made great use of the BBQ! and visited the Indian restaurant at the end of the road as it was so close! A wonderful time was had by all, highly reccomended - Liz, Steve, John and Joanne

Magnificent views, stunning setting & lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Two words: the views! I was really taken aback when we arrived at the villa - the scenery is simply breathtaking. This villa really does have such a beautiful outlook! Being in the London ratrace, my husband and I were keen to get away from it all and this place was perfect. We completely chilled out and we're already planning our next return. During the day we relaxed by the villa's pool or made the short trip down to Lake Vinuela where we had a picnic and a swim - it was so idyllic. The villa has absolutely everything you could possibly need and even inside the floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of the view too.

There was lots to keep us entertained during our week-long stay; we loved Torre Del Mar for the quaint coffee shops, bars and shopping as well as the beach.

The only thing is you do need a car but that wasn't a problem for us as it made it so much easier and convenient to get out and about.

If you're unsure of which villa to go for as we were - I'd say without doubt this one as it more than exceeded our expectations.

Thank you to Andy and Angela for answering any queries we had so promptly and for the fab stay in your beautiful villa - it really was a week of paradise and one of the best holiday's we've ever had. We will definitely be back!

Until next time,

Francesca and Nick Rogers

Nothing short of wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I don't normally give reviews, however in this instance I am only too happy to make an exception. We all had an absolutely wonderful stay. To put this in perspective, we have rented Villas on the east, the north and in a Valley to the west of the Lake in previous years. This is by far the best villa and location we have stayed in. The property has stunning views from the terrace and is extremely spacious and well equipped. We have already booked for next year.
