Guestbook comments from the owner

Our guests have become our friends, and keep returning. Here is the latest comment:-

May/June 2012 - TEN OUT OF TEN for this marvellous find -

My 88 yr old mother and I recently spent one of our best holidays ever staying in Linda and Dave's brilliant apartment. Fantastic location, simple and very comfortable - with everything you need for a relaxing enjoyable time. Terrific hosts, terrific place. Hoping to visit again.

Another comment from our good friends:-

What a lucky find on Owners Direct site, we wanted somewhere close to all the action but far enough away to be peaceful and La Casita has it all. The apartment has all that you need, basic but comfortable. The pool is fab and the views are exceptional. Dave is extremely hospitable and goes out of his way to make you welcome. We have already made a booking for a 5th return visit.

We had a fantastic holiday. We had car hire problems and Dave and his son-in-law, Colin, helped us out so much. I can't thank them enough. It's not often that people put themselves out for others but thank God they did otherwise we would not have had food and would not have been able to get around until we sourced a car.

The house is in a perfect spot, close to the airport, beach, restaurants...everything.

The house was lovely and clean and the pool was the perfect size for us (2 adults, 2 teenagers). I can't fault it and would happily return.

Holiday Away From the Tourist Areas

  • 5 of 5

Just coming to the end of a great three week stay. The accommodation is fairly basic but comfortable, with a kitchen, living area with TV, two bedrooms and a shower room, and is a good base for exploring the area. There is a large garden, a small enclosed patio area shaded by lemon and orange trees, a number of other patio areas to sit on and a good pool. The owner, Dave, and his very friendly dog, Sam, live next door and Dave is very friendly and helpful if you need anything. The area appears to have a mainly Spanish population with few tourists evident, this does mean that things, like restaurant opening times, reflect local lifestyles (20:30). If you do not want to use a car, and you don't mind walking, the facilities, such as supermarkets and local restaurants, and open countryside are a reasonable walk away, and if you are keen you can walk into Torremolinos, as we did on a number of ocassions, although we did get a taxi back a couple of times. There are also two railway stations within a 25 minute walk, or you can drive, that will take you to Malaga, or Torremolinos and on to Fuengirola, in the opposite direction. If this is your type of holiday we can recommend it.

Our holidays in Spain

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 3. Me, my wife and our daughter who is just 19 months old. I can not thanks enough to the owner of the property for such an amazing holidays. It was exactly what we were looking for. The place is not faar from airport, it is not noisy and everithyng is prety near. The owner of the property and his dog became a part of the family. It is nice that they are very friendly and provide as much space to visitor as possible. You will hardly notice that there is somebody else, but whenever you need something just shout dave and he is there for you to help.

I am sorry I know it doesnt seems to be a profesional and objective review but thats how we feel about the holidays we just had. Thanks a lot to Linda and especially to David for an amazing holidays and for giving us an oportunity to share the property and enjoy the life for at least 10 days. Some people may say it is not for them but for us it was a piece of heaven.

The first thing our daughter did every morning was to check the swimming pool and especially her best friend Sam. David was very nice and been almost like a grandfather to our daughter. Thanks a lot Dave for everything.

Thanks a lot.

best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing holiday!!!! 5* host would do anything for you and feels like part of the family. The pool was fantastic and the view over Malaga bay is beautiful, especially at sunset. The cottage has everything you need and I would recommend this to anyone for a perfect getaway. 100% will go back again and again. If only holidays could be longer :-)

Best Ever Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is handy for the airport, no long expensive transfers when you arrive or depart.

Dave is an exceptional host and went out of his way to help in any way he could, nothing is too much trouble. We were made to feel at home straight away and left feeling like we were leaving a family member behind.

The cottage felt homely and had everything we needed for our holiday and more.

This is no tourist accommodation this is head and shoulders above anywhere I have ever stayed before, the pool, the view, the host, the accommodation were amazing.

If you want a home from home away from the tourist areas but close enough to see the sights of the Costa Del Sol this is the place for you.

We would all return again and again.

La Casita, Churriana, Malaga

  • 3 of 5

Staying at this semi rural hide away for six months was a perfect retreat for me and my 2 dogs. Located 15 minutes walk from a typical Spanish village. It is down a steep hill which is better going down then back up, but on the plus side, the views are fantastic. I would suggest hiring a car, which I did but I am a pensioner. However, Dave the owner of the apartment, is always willing to take you to the supermarket and will help out any way he can. There is a local bus at the bottom of the hill which takes you to Plaza Mayor (shopping Centre) there is a train here which goes to Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola. Stay on the bus after shopping centre and it will also take you to the previously mentioned resorts. All in all a really good experience.
