About the property

Villa in Maro, Nerja, Costa del Sol - Access to the Urbanisation is by wide tarmac roads. Peaceful and quiet location.

The villa is walled all round and is very peaceful and private. It is set in a small urbanisation with views from the balcony of sea and mountains. It is only a short drive to Nerja and its numerous beaches. There is an excellent bus service within walking distance from the villa to all villages along the cost and to and from Malaga airport. There is a discotheque in Nerja for the young at heart or one can simply relax by the pool. There are lots of seaside towns to visit, especially driving east. This area enjoys the best weather on the coast. The facilities are excellent with a high standard of cleanliness. If you bring your own laptop with Wifi installed you may be able to go on online from our wireless antennae.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thank you Dilcia & Eric. We didn't feel a need to leave the villa as it had everything to make our holiday perfect. So peaceful and relaxing. We will certainly recommend it to our


Sasha, Joanne and Birdie

Had a wonderful week in the villa. It has a very relaxing ambience and it has been almost impossible to tear oursleves away from the pool area, even at midnight!! We really couldn´t have picked a better place. Will have to check our commitments when we get back to see when we can make it next. Here´s hoping. Jane & Maria.

We have had a wonderful holiday. Villa and pool have been perfect. First time we have had the use of a gas barbecue - wonderful! Stops all the arguement about how soon to light the charcoal. But your interesting stories and jokes Eric were probably the highlight. Dilcia and your daughter Marisela were lovely and very welcoming. Thank you so much. Linda & Roger.

Notes on accommodation: Ceiling fans are fitted in the lounge, diner, and bedrooms. All windows are fitted with mosquito mesh which can be retracted if desired. The bedding has new memory type mattresses and is kept in an immaculate and hygienic condition throughout. The villa is detached and stands in its own grounds with sliding windows, allowing through ventilation from front to back. It is always cool and fresh. Outside: There is a balcony with sea and mountain views which is equipped with a retractable sun blind. The pool is ceramic and its dimensions are 8 x 4m, with a shallow and deep end. Steps lead into the pool from the shallow end. It is regularly sanitized and automatically filtered daily. There is a gas barbecue on separate patio away from the pool surrounds. The patio around the pool provides sun and shade all day. Loungers with soft cushions are provided and the parasols mounted on casters can be easily moved to where needed most. The high walls around the villa give complete privacy and a table with chairs is there to use for breakfast, or for a casual drink of whatever takes your fancy. In the renting season the pool temperature is at 82 degrees fahrenheit or around 25 degrees centigrade, whichever you prefer. We do not think it necessary to use pool heating as we believe a pool it is there to cool you down after a spell of sun bathing. Cleaning / Towels / Linen : Towels and bedlinen are included. Beach towels are not provided. Pool is vacuumed and sanitized every 4 days taking approx 1 h. Other: A new patio separate from the pool surrounds is where the charcoal barbecue is. There are chairs and a table and ample space for recliners in this area.

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 3 weeks and it was the best holiday ever! The villa was very comfortable, clean and easy to live in. The kitchen is adequately equipped with toaster, coffee machine etc. to ensure that meals can be cooked easily. Crockery and cutlery are sufficient and very clean. The washing machine works well and is outside.

The peace was astounding, no undue noises, very few cars came up the Lane, the pool area is very private and lovely to use as the owner cleans it regularly.

The owner is a lovely, very helpful lady.

The views from the windows and terraces are fabulous. There are regular buses within a short walk going into Nerja for shopping, lovely beaches and large choice of restaurants, but to fully explore the lovely surrounding, a car is the obvious choice of transport. The restaurant on the Balcon de Maro is worth visiting and can be reached on foot. Maro beach is also only a walk away and the caves of Nerja are reached in 5 minutes walk.

The tower of Cerro Gordo is worth the 10 min drive and the short climb up to see fantastic views.

For someone wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday this villa is an ideal choice.

One thing would have made the stay even more perfect, the television only has spanish programmes, it would be good to have satellite programmes too.

Car: recommended


Easy walking distance to the pueblo of Maro where there are small shops and several restaurants. It is only a short drive to Nerja with its numerous beaches. The coast or motorway roads take you to many beaches and promenades along the coastline. A large Super Store with ample shaded parking, is located off the E15 A7 autovia at Torre Del Mar.


Malaga airport is approximately 50 minutes by taxi or hire car and about 90 minutes by the excellent bus service which goes to the terminal at the Cuevas de Nerja (actually the cuevas are at Maro close to the villa). Directions from Malaga to the villa will be sent in good time. Taxis are expensive and if not hiring a car we suggest that you take the train by the airport to the bus station in Malaga and then bus it to Las Cuevas very close to the villa.


Maro is within walking distance. Nerja about 5 K's away. It is an interesting town with lots of restaurants and bars usually with live popular music in the evenings and good company. Torrox Costa, Caleta and Torre Del Mar driving west have very long beaches and promenades. Lots going on along the Torre Del Mar area, especially for children There are trampolines with bouncing supports above them. Great fun.

Further Details:

On the clip board you will find a drawing showing where the beaches and supermarkets are. They are not far but may be closed on Sundays. If you are arriving on that day we would be happy to buy some provisions for you beforehand if you let us know what you would like. If you intend to use credit cards you will have to take your passport along with you to support it. There are plenty of cash points in the main towns.

There is no better location for mountain walks or mountain biking with an unlimited variety of treks to choose from. Behind the villa traffic free access takes you into the green belt where you can spot all type of wild life especially the mountain goats or cabras as they are are called locally. These walks are fairly isolated and the higher you go the fresher it becomes with panoramic views of sea and mountain. There is always a cool refreshing breeze higher up. For those with a bent for flat walking, there is a paved walking path from Maro to Nerja which is popular with visitors and locals alike, especially in the cool mornings and evenings. This walk follows the coast line and the sea is always in view.

The Nerja (Maro) caves are within walking distance. Close to the caves there is a park area with numerous benches located in the shade, a childrens playgound with slide and saw saws, ecetera. Tables and benches under cover are ideal for taking snacks or relaxing generally.
