About David Greene

I am a British Chartered Accountant and I came to live and work in Spain in 1998 after a long-ish career in auditing and then corporate finance. On arriving in Spain, as a complete change of lifestyle, I opened a very successful French restaurant which I later sold very well. I then owned and ran a small, successful real estate office but closed it when the property market went quiet here in 2007. I speak fluent French and an improving Spanish too. I have been advertising here since 2007.

I am a friendly and approachable guy and I want to make sure that my guests are happy with everything and, thankfully, I seem to succeed in that. I expect high standards when I go on holiday and I always assume that my guests expect the same from me.

I live just a few minutes away in the centre of Fuengirola

David Greene purchased this villa in 2002

Why David Greene chose Fuengirola

I bought Villa Blanca because of its fabulously original interior layout and very high ceilings as well as the excellent panoramic sea views. Another factor was the location at the very nice West end of Fuengirola so close to the beach and so many facilities including restaurants, bars, the Myramar shopping mall etc...perfect.

I completely renovated the Villa in 2004 and, in 2006, I extended it significantly and installed a super private pool of 32 m2. In 2015, I added a super brick and granite built gas-fired barbecue which is a big hit with guests. Many of my guests have said that the photos do not do the Villa justice especially the sea views, interior and the beautiful garden.

It is not necessary to hire a car as all you need is accessible within walking distance. However, the Villa is also ideally located as a central point to visit so many places of interest, sports and other facilities, shops, and other towns.

What makes this villa unique

I think that the unique benefits of Villa Blanca can be summarised as follows. If anyone contemplating a self-catering Villa holiday makes up a list of all of the criteria they are seeking (eg spacious, luxurious, private exclusive use of the facilities, fully-equipped, all main UK TV Channels, fast WiFi signal, air-conditioning in all bedrooms, BBQ, walking distance to beach, shops, bars restaurants, etc, super sea views, private pool, loads of local amenities, excellent transport links, close to airport, fair-pricing etc etc) then Villa Blanca is one of very very few that can tick all of these boxes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had the most wonderful holiday, spoiled for choice on whether to lounge by the fantastic pool at the villa or visit the very many other towns and resorts close by. The villa is in a prime location for all amenities within Fuengirola and suited us perfectly. The villa itself is beautiful and very spacious with stunning views. Highly recommended and we will almost certainly return.

Debbie, Dave, Neal, Jo and Paul.



'Your photos did not do the Villa justice. The place was stunning and the views outstanding. We will be back.' Ros, Geoff and the boys



'We had such a great holiday and did not need the car after all. We think this was the best villa we have ever stayed in.' Mr and Mrs Johnston.



'The whole experience was great...we practically never went out except for food shopping and almost lived in the pool. Fabulous views and a beautiful house.' Betty Gardener.



Thank you David for such a wonderful holiday. The house was fantastic and the views to die for. Mary Weston

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Relevant for winter, there is underfloor heating in the lounge and master bedroom and bathroom. In the dining area and all of the other bedrooms there is heating and air-conditioning. The pool is not deep - about 145cm or 4 ft 9in with no deep end, so it is ideal for children but deep enough for all to swim in. However, as a simple safety precaution we ask that adults do not allow children to use the pool without supervision. The garden and pool will need to be maintained at all times and we would ask you please to understand that we will need to access these areas during your stay to ensure your continued enjoyment. We will of course respect your privacy and be as quick and discreet as possible. Outside: The private pool is 8m x 4m and 1.45m deep. Outdoor furniture includes a dining table and chairs and a separate table with benches. There are 6 sun loungers and a superb brick and granite built gas-fired BBQ. Around the villa there are 6 distinct terraces/patios giving everyone their own bit of private space when desired. There are sea views from most of the garden and terraces including the pool area. The garden is quite private and most of it is not overlooked. There are lots of flowers and plants typical of the region including some beautiful bougainvilleas as well as a good variety of roses, palmeras and jasmine. Utility Room: Laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer to rear of kitchen. Plenty of cupboard space and double sink. Cleaning / Towels / Linen: Fresh bed linen and towels are provided at the beginning of your stay but also changed weekly if you are staying two weeks or more. You may of course, if you prefer, use the washing machine and other facilities to do your own laundry.

Beautiful Villa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a week at Villa Blanca, have always wanted to holiday in a Villa and this was our first experience, for us any other villa will find it hard to live up to Villa Blanca.

David met us to show us round and we felt at home straight away, looking through the gate I couldn’t wait to get in.

A beautiful place with lots of levels, lots of outside space and seating, well equipped with everything you need, lovely furniture and decor. We were a group of four but even with six you have plenty of space and places to be alone if you want.

A short walk to the beach, supermarket, restaurants and Fuengirola

We didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to go back.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful place with us.

Judy & John with Lesley & Steve

Villa Blanca Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay at Villa Blanca, our first stay in any villa in this area which we have visited often.

Our first impression was that it was a very warm and welcoming 'home away from home' villa which is exactly what we wanted. Somewhere to relax, not overlooked, with views and facilities to match that perfect holiday home. We were met by David who showed us around. Very honest and open man who shared his passion for the place. We loved the fact that there were numerous places around the villa which you could sit and relax. In fact you could have dinner /breakfast in a difference place each night if you chose. We stayed with friends and the size of the place allowed for us to have our own personal space in addition to shared places without feeling in each others way. The villa is set on levels, the kitchen/dining area at the top, followed by the lounge with another dining area, then on to the lower floors where the bedrooms and access to the garden and pool were. On each level there are terraces to walk out onto.

We had fresh bedding and towels laid out and everything else except food was available from bin bags to swimming pool floats.

David was easy to get hold of (although we didn't need to) the paperwork was precise (although a little daunting at first) The weather and views were spectacular and very close to large shopping centres with activities and to Fuengirola town.

We definitely want to stay again.

Lesley, Judy, Steve & John *****

Thoroughly enjoyable family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday at Villa Blanca and difficult to add to the already glowing reviews. We atayed as a family of 2 grandparents, together with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren (6 & 4). David greeted us at the Villa and gave us a guided tour and even though there is a main road nearby by just down the hill, immediately we were taken by the lovely views across to the beach and sea, and were attracted to the terrace with it's big awning where we ate most of our meals and drinks in the evening. Our bedroom was at ground level with the en suite bathroom, leading out onto the garden and was perfect for us. The rest of the family had their own rooms and bathrooms away from us which worked well. The kitchen had everything we needed and we mainly self catered, with the some meals out in the daytime and evenings. The air conditioning was efficent (thank goodness!) and was used to cool the room ready for bed, and used the fan during the day as a back up when needed. It was hot, as we expected, and the main attraction for us was the pool especially the children who honed their swimming and diving skills. The beach and restaurants are all within reasonable walking distance and we made good use of the Miramar shooping complex with it's large and very well stocked supermarket. Because of the heat, we made sure we didn't have too much to carry up the hill and went every other day to buy food. The fish counter was great! Go in the morning to see the extensive choice available. David recommended a restaurant to us - the Coriander - which is an Italian/Indian restaurant (strange but true) and we ate there several times as we loved the food and service and suited the children for pizza and pasta and the adults for indian food. The pool is maintained often and the "pool-man" was just lovely, as was the cleaning lady. I wish we'd asked their names but we had lots of nice chats with them and they do a sterling job keeping everything in good order. We didn't need a car, nor would want one as we were quite happy where we were just relaxing. The other family members ventured to meet up with family docking at Malaga on a cruise one day and with advice from David, took the train from Fuengirola to Malaga. There was a bit of walking involved either end but the children loved the train ride adventure. Taxi to/from the airport should cost around 40-45 Euros. Just ask them to put the meter on. A great family holiday! Thank you David.

Great Villa & Location.

  • 5 of 5

This property was as stated in the owners description, possibly understated.

The villa is spacious, well equipped & provides a beautiful view of the med from the terrace. David (the owner) was very helpful & very pleasant to deal with, fortunately the villa was so good we did not really need to disturb him much over the course of our stay.

The cleaning lady & Gardener / pool man were also very warm & friendly making our holiday just what it should be, an all round fantastic experience.

The pool & surrounding area was perfect for us, as our party was 2 adults & 3 kids, all enjoyed the outdoor aspect of the holiday. There is a very good barbie area which we also took advantage off .

I would readily recommend this Villa (Blanca) without reservation, its location, 10 mins from a large shopping mall, the same from the beach just added to the holiday as there was no need for a car. If you read this review please believe me as someone who has had a few villa holidays this was a standout.

Thanks to David & his staff.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much Alex for your super review and I shall pass on your comments to my small team. We shall, of course, always do our utmost to maintain standards in the property and gardens although Villa Blanca's biggest attributes can never be diminished which are its size, layout, range of facilities and location just 400 metres from the best beach in Fuengirola and within walking distance of countless shops, bars, restaurants, cafeterias as well as the Myramar shopping centre just 650 metres away which includes the biggest supermarket in town.

Great holiday in a super villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Villa Blanca in July. We were a party of 6; 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 young children. The layout of the villa was perfect for us; with the parents and the children in the adjacent bedrooms and the grandparents in the bedroom leading out to pool! The villa was exactly as described and had everything we required; we particularly enjoyed the outdoor spaces and the children loved the pool!

The villa is close to the main amenities, with the Mirimar Shopping Mall about 10 minutes walk away and the beach is even closer!

David was an excellent host and met us on arrival to give us a conducted tour of the villa and advice on the use of the appliances including the a/c units!

This villa will be the first one we enquire about if we return to the same area in the future!

Lovely & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Villa Blanca is a lovely, light and airy villa. It is clean & tidy and the kitchen is well equipped. David, the owner, is friendly and was very helpful when we needed help. Local shops and the beach are close by. The beach is extremely clean and there are plenty of shops and restaurants along the front to choose from. From the villa, there is a lovely sea view and a view of the castle which is illuminated at night. We actually heard all of the Beach boys concert one night as they were playing at the castle. We particularly liked the retractable canopy on the balcony which was necessary as it was hot. The pool was lovely and welcoming, especially after a day out! We enjoyed our holiday very much and would recommend it and indeed return one day.

Location

Parque Acuatico Mijas
"Great fun and just 15 minutes walk. "
Bioparc Fuengirola
"Small but very well-designed and laid out. You can really get up close. Usually tigers, gori..."
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The beach is 400 metres from Villa Blanca and is a 3 or 4 minute walk. There are no major roads to be crossed to get there because there is a very convenient foot bridge over the coastal road some 200m from the property. The beach here is very wide, made of golden sand, and popular and there are a number of bars and restaurants as well as the Beatriz Palace hotel.

Travel:

Malaga airport is 20 kms i.e. 20 minutes drive away from the Villa. From the airport, one can take a taxi to the Villa or the train which goes to the Centre of Fuengirola. Marbella is also 20km away in the other direction. The beautiful mountain pueblo of Mijas is just 5 kms inland, Gibraltar is some 110 kms and Puerto Banus some 25kms. There are many other super places to visit including the City of Malaga (20 kms), Ronda (70 kms), Tarifa (120kms), Granada, Antequera, Cordoba, El Chorro lakes,

Distances:

The Villa is located at the west end of Fuengirola. To walk into town is quick and easy. The start of the town's pedestrian beach-front promenade is approximately 350 metres away, about 3 minutes on foot.

Further Details:

The new Myramar centre is located within a 6-7 minute walk (about 700 metres) from the villa and comprises Fuengirola's largest supermarket (Eroski) and several dozen independent shops and boutiques selling clothes, jewellery, furniture, toys, electrical and many others. The shopping centre also has its own multi-screen cinema and a selection of restaurants and fast food outlets.
