About Nikki Jeffrey

Julian and I fell in love with this part of Spain on our pre-honeymoon! Good friends allowed us the use of their villa and we loved it so much we decided to buy. Jamie our son was born soon after and we have now enjoyed 16 years of holidaying at Bahia de Casares and its surrounding area. It is very much home from home for us and we want you to enjoy the villa as much as we do. It is very child friendly - i.e. no overly expensive furnishings for you to worry about! And as there is only 1 point of access to the garden/pool it is very easy to keep children away from the area by closing this one door.

As well as a great family villa, Julian has enjoyed boys golfing weekends and I have enjoyed many girls weekends! In a few years I'm sure Jamie will be partying with his friends too!

Nikki Jeffrey purchased this villa in 1998

Why Nikki Jeffrey chose Malaga Province (Costa del Sol)

This part of Spain is so easy to get too - either via Gibraltar Airport or Malaga Airport, the latter of which is serviced by countless airlines. The flight time is approx two and a half hours so if you catch an early flight you can be enjoying a swim and drinks by the pool by lunchtime!

The villa, pool and garden provide a secure, secluded setting but within a few mins drive you can find many shops, supermarkets, beaches, bars etc and although a busy part of the coast it is not built-up like the resorts closer to Malaga.

We always have to spend at least one day at Puerto Banus to people watch and admire the cars and yachts in the harbour.

Unspoilt areas can still be found in the traditional fishing and mountain villages.

This is not an ultra modern 5* villa - it is around 40 years old and is on an established urbanisation with a mix of villas and apartments. However it is well furnished and equipped and will provide a comfortable stay for your holiday. The key feature of our villa is the lovely private pool and garden which provides a relaxing and secluded setting for you and your family to recharge your batteries!

We do our best to keep on tops of things that need doing/replacing - for example last year it was mattresses to bedrooms 2 and 3 and this year it has been sofas and dining room chairs. Any suggestions during or after your stay are welcome.

What makes this villa unique

Once we step inside it feels like home and we love the peace and quiet of our private garden and pool.

Our friends and family often come with us and they too consider it their second home.

Home from home, fab place in the right place. 1000% thanks.

  • 5 of 5

Just right for us, need for nothing very private and equipped with everything you could wish for. If your into nightlife and music bars on your doorstep or holiday romances you need to book elsewhere. If you want sun, friendly people and good small restaurants with a bit of tapas it's heaven.....1000%

Home from home

  • 4 of 5

A lot of my opinions just mirror the vast majority of ones expressed in other guests reviews, we felt at home very quickly and settled into the holiday mood from day one,the house is tastefully furnished, functional and clean, the kitchen is well equipped and roomy and the dining area easily managed the five of us, down a flight of stairs to the living area, two very comfortable sofas and a large TV c/w sat tv and PlayStation 2 entertained everyone when we needed a break from the midday sun, bedrooms on the next two levels lead out onto the focal point of the property, the huge pool with plenty of sun loungers, bbq ,fridge and dining area, again everything you could want and more. My fav spot was the upstairs veranda when you wanted a quiet spot to admire the views of Gibraltar and Africa in the distance. The house is located about ten mins walk from the beach opposite and ten mins drive from supermarkets and restaurants aplenty, if you are feeling lazy there's a burger king nearby aswell, we spent a very enjoyable 3 weeks in the property and to be honest it felt like 1 week, stress free and relaxing. Nikki was a pleasure to deal with, every aspect of the rental was handled efficiently and in a very friendly manner and we wish the best of luck with all the rentals in the future.

A gem of a place

  • 5 of 5

This place is magnificent. A massive villa with lots of space inside and out. Ideally located for short car journeys to Puerto de la Duquesa, estapona or even Puerto banus. Nicola provides excellent information before hand and also within the villa about places to go, eat and shops, as well as doctors, petrol stations etc.

The villa itself is well equipped (although don't forget to bring plug converters) with all you need for the kitchen if you decide to stay in. There are lots of towels for beach and pool days and there is a machine (and detergent) for when they need a change. the outside areas have plenty of seating and there are also a couple of pool toys for the very large private pool. We never even made it to the communal pool! The pool is attended to by a local, who is very discreet but does an excellent job of maintaining the large gardens, complete with lemon trees, ideal for your Gin and tonics.

The property was very clean and tidy and feels like a home.

This was our second visit, the first some 14 years ago and wished we'd been back sooner. Will definitely be back next year

Outstanding! better than advertised super views of the Mediterranean confortable & truly delightful

  • 5 of 5

I can’t say enough about this lovely home. This is a great location from which we were able to take day trips to Malaga, Marbella, Gibraltar, Cadiz, Ronda and even Seville. The villa was even better than advertised and truly delightful. Exceptionally clean offering everything guests might desire including fully furnished kitchen with new appliances, rummy dining room and a great living room with large flat screen TV (satellite reception) great stereo system and two large comfortable sofas. The view from the living room and the two upper decks allow you to see Gibraltar, Morocco & Marbella/Malaga. Beach is a five minute walk and full service markets a quick ten minute drive. Dozens of restaurants within 15 minutes but we chose to eat in and enjoy the peaceful setting. My stay was in March so the chilly evenings required use of the automatic climate system which is quiet and comfortable. I have stayed in many villas along southern Spain and this is by far my favorite.

A big thank you to Nikki Jeffery for allowing us to enjoy this delightful home and all your help in making my stay so enjoyabe. I plan to return in early 2017 and stay for a month or more.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

As the villa is on the coast the local beach and bar is a 5-10 min walk. A short drive will find many other beaches at Sabinillas (2km), Estepona (6km) both of which offer loungers and umbrellas for a small fee and showers/wc, beach bars and a safe environment for young children. Further afield you can easily reach Sotogrande (12km), Puerto Banus (17km) and Tarifa (50km) where the Atlantic meets the Med with its long sandy beaches and host to windsurfing competitions.

Travel:

Malaga Airport (90km) - approx 50 min drive. Bus travel is available but we have not yet tried it (change at Estepona and then taxi from Sabinillas).

Gibraltar Airport (40km) - approx 30 min drive. Recommend that you walk through the border and take hire car/taxi from Spanish side.

Car hire is highly recommended.

Distances:

Sabinillas is the nearest village (2km) with wide range of amenities - supermarkets, banks, pharmacies, restaurants, beach and promenade etc.

La Duquesa (4km)- pretty port and harbour overlooked by bars and restuarants.

Estepona (7km) - large Spanish town with all amenities, long sandy beach and promenade with playgrounds for young children.

Puerto Banus (17km) - lively cosmopolitan port to people, car and yacht watch!

Casares (12Km) - described as a 'spilt paint pot' in the mountains.

Further Details:

There is a communal pool on the urbanisation that guests of the villa are entitled to use from May - Sept. This is lovely for a change of scene or for slightly older children who may want to escape the adults for an hour or two. It is not attended so children must be supervised by you.

Fashionable shopping and lively nightlife can be found at Puerto Banus and Marbella - about 30 mins drive.

Further afield you can explore the beauty of Ronda, Seville, Cordoba, Granada or even cross the Med and explore the markets in Africa for the day.
