Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a brilliant time thank you, you have a lovely villa.
We couldn't fault anything the exterior of the villa is very pretty, the secluded location was just what we wanted nice and quiet, the supermarket in Albox was easy to get too and had everything we needed, the interior of the villa is very nice, the living room is nice and spacious, the dinning room and kitchen perfect as was the bathroom, the bedrooms and the storage in them were ample, the hot tub, bbq and outdoor table area was were we spent most of our time along with the fantastic pool and bar. Honestly when we arrived and it was just as good as the pictures looked, i thought it was perfect. If i was to own a villa in Spain it is exactly what I would want.We will defiantly be back with our partnersRegards,

Once again, thank you for an a

Amazing place, beautiful setting. Exactly as the photos show. Very well equipped, everything you need and then some more. Could not ask for more hospitable hosts, Christine and Colin were wonderful, extremely accommodating. there was a booklet that Christine keeps in the house with all the local amenities and restaurants as well as cultural and useful stuff to do in the area. The house was extremely clean and comfortable. My wife was so impressed that she could keep up to date with her Soaps and family using the reliable Wifi service. The pool area and hot tub were extremely well kept and clean. The pool area consisted of a very nice bar and a number of sun loungers. It's an absolutely idyllic visit. Hope to go back soon.
A peace of paradise
There was absolutely nothing I could fault, the house and gardens where perfect. Extremely clean. Very comfortable beds, the superking size was especially good. We did not want to leave the villa as it was so very comfortable. The swimming pool was amazing, much larger than we expected. There was a good wi fi, and all the UK tv channels, up to date films and box sets. Thank you for letting us stay at your amazing villa
The villa I have ever stayed in
Casa Mica is much more beautiful than the pictures show in reality. The house and gardens were spotlessly clean, there was plenty of room for us all, 10 people in total. Christine and her husband, could not do enough for us, there was even a welcome pack on our arrival. We spent a lot of time at the property, as the swimming pool was huge, and the jacuzzi, was lovely to spend time sipping a bottle of sparkling wine. There are plenty of attractions close by, which was highlighted with a booklet that the owners had left at the property. The local beaches which are easily accessed by good roads, around 30 minutes by car. I did particularly like the the villa was not stuck on the top of a mountain road, it was very easy to find and the drive was a pleasure. There are lots of local bars and restaurants in the town of Albox, 5 minutes drive, and one of the biggest weekly markets that I have seen. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone who would like to stay in a luxurious well priced holiday property. Me and my family cannot wait to return in the very near future.
Lovely house with pretty patio garden and good-sized pool, well-presented and maintained.
Our famiy group of 3 teenage girls, 2 middle-aged parents and 4 grandparents really enjoyed staying at Casa Mica. The house was clean, well presented with good features such as the jacuzzi, good TV with channel/film choice and adequate Wifi, as well as good kitchen & utility facilites. The pool was a pleasure - clean and a good size. It was lovely to look out at the mountains from the balcony and enjoy pretty plants & pots whilte wating al fresco on the patio. Christine and Colin were very friendly and helpful, they pop in regularly to make sure that everything is just right, water plants etc. The poolside bar with honesty box was a nice additional touch. Albox town is an easy drive with some nice places to eat and an interesting market. We really enjoyed ourselves, but found the area maybe not as interesting as some other places in Spain but the house is wonderful - we don't hesitate to recommend it.
My husband and I wanted a Romantic holiday to get away from it all and Casa Mica exceeded our expectations.
It is a very private villa, yet close to town too. Our days were spent picking oranges from the trees in the gardens, making juice, going to the local bakery and obtaining fresh hot bread, swimming and relaxing in the Hot tub, with all its soothing jets.
The villa was very clean, airy and spacious too, with lots of storage space. It was good to have home comforts of washing machine, dishwasher, dvd player etc.
We did venture into town and enjoyed the ambience of the area and local culture.
Highly recommended. Looking forward to returning.

Wonderfull Holiday at Casa Mica
we just wanted to Thank You, as we had such a lovely holiday at your villa. As a large group of mixed ages, (4 adults, 2 toddlers & 2 teenagers), it is always hard to please everyone, but Casa mica came up trumps. It is such a spacious villa, with secluded, safe gardens, a wonderful pool and the added bonus of the jaccuzzi, which was extreamly enjoyable.
It was also reassurring that you havea management company (Jackie & Dennis)on call 24/7 if we needed them. They were very knowledgable about the area and gave us some great tips where to go to visit and eat etc. Also, your notice board and info folder were also a great help.
It was also a benefit to have a seperate dinning area in the villa along with an outside, covered eating area and seperate bar area too. The villa was also extreamly clean and fresh. It is obvious that you have seriously thought about ensuring that your villa offers the best experience possible and your attention to detail, was obvious, eg, games for adults and children, books, dvd's, pool inflatables etc etc.
The town of Albox was only 5 mins away where we ate some really nice tapas etc and the local Spanish bar within walking distance was truly Spanish and a lovely experience for all. Your villa location offers real Spain.
On the advice of Jackie & Dennis we also ventured to the coast and they explained about the 3 different beaches all Vera, Garrucha & Mojacar. They all offer different experiences and yet only 35 minutes away. The toddlers enjoyed the play parks at the coast and in Albox too, the teenages enjoyed the Spanish shops and street cafes in Garrucha.
We also drove in to the mountains and visited "The Monastry" which is so pretty and we had lunch there too, with some amazing views across the area, where we also saw an Eagle flying.
Again, thank you for having such a lovely villa and we can't wait to all come back again.
