About the property

'La Mirada' is light and spacious, built on a sloping plot of 1,000 m2, and surrounded by gardens. The entrance is in the north garden with a lemon tree, olive, bougainvilleas and hebiscusses. The sloping west garden with steps leads to the pool area, with a large pool (5x10 m) surrounded by terraces, palm trees, lemon tree, roses and a lot of plants. Along the east side is a shaded garden with fruit trees. The house itself is spacious and light. The large entrance hall with vide gives access to the modern fully equipped kitchen and adjoining storage room, to the living room with adjacent tv-corner and dining area, to the guest's bathroom, to the master bedroom with built-in bathroom, and to a staircase hall. Upstairs is a study which overlooks the vide/entrance hall and opens on to the roof terrace. Downstairs are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms around a hall which also gives direct access to the pool terrace and shaded east garden, with the BBQ corner; there is a coal- and a gas-fired BBQ. Along the south side of the dining room, living room and TV corner (which all have sliding doors) is a big terrace with a lounge set; in the covered part near the TV corner is another lunch/dining table. Large marble stairs connect the main terrace with the pool area. Master bedroom and bedroom 2 (downstairs) have built-in wardrobes; bedrooms 3 and 4 have chests of drawers and share a wardrobe in the hall in between them. All (8) beds have the same size, 90x200 cm. The bedrooms have airconditioning; the living area remains quite cool by itself due to some natural circulation. Around the pool are 8 deck chairs and there is more outside furniture which enables you to find always a sunny or a shaded place to relax throughout the day. The garage is next to the entrance hall.

The large modern kitchen has 2 fridges (with deep freeze), microwave, oven, dishwasher, electric cooking (by induction), espresso machine etc. A washing machine and a tumble dryer are in the adjacent storeroom.

The housekeeper comes on Wednesday and Saturday mornings to check the pool and water quality, and to do some gardening.

About Jan Reneman

We used to have a holiday home in Northern Spain, in Blanes (Costa Brava) for more than 15 years. We sold it a few years ago and started our search for a new house which would meet our most important criteria: along the Mediterranean, close to a nice beach, good seaview, excellent climate to escape from the Netherlands when the sky gets grey, near places of interest, good food and entertainment. We tried Tuscany, the Italian and French Riviera's without success until we found it here, in the Costa del Sol in Andalucia, the heart of Spain. We bought La Mirada in 2011, modernized and extended it so that it can accomodate our children with their families or friends, and of course ourselves from time to time. We find it a very pleasant house with lots of space, and always full of light.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a short note to say it felt like a real privilege to stay in your lovely villa, Jan. All our group thought it was perfect, always easy to find somewhere cool in the mature gardens and the pool was fantastic for all of us, young and old.

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was superbly appointed and had everything our family (there were 6 adults) could possibly wish for.It is in a lovely location- a short walk from the beach- but we only went there once because the pool area is so good. All the rooms are tastefully decorated and the showers are fantastic. We will definitely be visiting again. Can't wait!!

Car: recommended


The sandy beach with the simple but cosy Triana restaurant is at walking distance: 400m. Along the beach you walk in 15 minutes to the pretty port of Cabopino which offers restaurants and bars and facilities for surfing and sailing. Along the coast towards Marbella you will find a variety of beaches, from quiet ones to luxury beaches with entertainment; many restaurants.


Malaga is the nearest international airport, at approximately 35 minutes by car. Use or hire of car is recommended.


Marbella's very nice old centre, beautiful boulevards and Dali sculptures are only 10 car minutes away. A few miles further is the jet-set port of Puerto Banus. From there, it takes 10 minutes to reach San Pedro de Alcantara, a traditional Andalucian village. The historical city of Ronda, home of the bullfight (40 kms) and the nature reservation near Ojen are nearby. Malaga is interesting with its Picasso museum and moorish fortress. And of course Granada (2 hrs), Cordoba and Sevilla (3+ hrs).

Further Details:

Local supermarket at 1 km. Larger shopping area with supermarket, shops, banks, restaurants in Elviria (urbanisation), at 2 kms. La Canada is a very big and modern shopping mall at the outskirts of Marbella (15 km along the A-7) with anything from supermarket, drugstore, audio-visual retail to shops with luxurious goods, clothing etc. In Marbella itself you can find shops of any kind, good medical facilities, and many good restaurants and tapas bars.
