Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Christine,

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,


Hi Christine,

We all had a fantastic time and thought Casa Mica was beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality, we would love to potentially return in the future.

The property was extremely clean and the pool was fantasticreated.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment and were fortunate enough to be the last lot of people who were also able to book the house itself! There is also a 1 bedroom casita but we did not use that.

The apartment was ideal, the private terrace had amazing views over the mountains. The pool was superb.The location was perfect for us, close enough for a quick trip to Albox for provisions or a short walk to a local bakery.

The owners, Christine and Colin were absolutely lovely and full of local knowledge.

Can't recommend this place highly enough.

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

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, however you say that you would have given this a five star rating had there been more to do in the locality, but you yourself said that you did not want to spend time away from the villa as it had everything and more that you wanted.

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.
