About the Owner

The Scandrett family consist of Nigel and Jackie with children John (23) and Stuart (19). We have visited the Algarve and Spain on numerous occasions for family and golf holidays. The climate is the key. Much warmer than the South of France and guaranteed sunshine most of the year. We have a high standard of living in the UK and were looking for something with a 'wow' factor that ticked most of the boxes similar to what we enjoy in the UK, albeit smaller. In 'Casa Poco Loco' (Spain - Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2014) and 'Casa Sirrah' (Algarve) we found it. Locations so close to the beach and the nearby proximity of golf, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars were key factors. Not typical rental properties. Everything designed to the highest standard - yours to enjoy!

Lovely and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property with nothing to wish for on an elivatted position with the most stunning views up and down the coast. The sunsets were just awesome to watch while sat on one of the many balconies on an evening. Was a very relaxing time away and would recommend to anyone

Lovely Relaxing Villa

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa. It is perfect for 4 people and had ample room to relax over two levels. Very nice pool terrace area with lots of space for lounging around and a big enough pool to play pool games. Barbecue was excellent and dining table a lovely size and position for the evening. Lunchtime was best on the upper balcony. You could easily spend your whole time here, but Malaga city is a great visit and especially Grenada where we stayed a few days in a split holiday.

Nigel, the owner was very good to deal with and maintained excellent communications.

We absolutely loved this villa!

The views from the terraces are amazing - in fact the pictures on here don't do it justice!

The villa over all was very clean, air con was very effective, especially in the bedrooms. The pool was deep for our six year old but that was a plus because it really helped her to practice her swimming, and there were swimming aids for her to use so we were never worried.

One plus that we didn't realise we'd appreciate so much when we booked it was the outside kitchen, especially the fridge - perfect for storing cold drinks without having to go back inside.

It is quite a steep walk back up from the beach and supermarkets/restaurants but we tended to walk down and get a taxi back for about 8 Euros.

The local shop 5 minutes walk away stocked a lot of items, so it wasn't necessary to go to the larger supermarket down the hill for every day items.

Restaurants we would recommend are the Pizzeria on the complex nearby, and we also found a nice one at the bottom of the hill called George's Bar - friendly staff, reasonably priced and good food.

We found the owner to be very friendly and helpful; all in all we had a lovely holiday and thoroughly recommend it!

Relaxing break in a lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa had everything we needed and more. The location was ideal, 30 minutes from the airport and close to some lovely locations. The house was spotless, well maintained and it had all the facilities we needed. It was great to have the jacuzzi to fall back on when it got a bit cooler on some days. I would recommend this property highly to anyone.

Unic Villa with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic stay at Villa Poco Loco, and loved the sunset and the view from the terrace. We stayed there with our tiny baby, and both the baby and us loved the jacuzzi and the tranquil surroundings. The Villa is huge, and even though we had the family visiting us, there was plenty of room to all of us. Both the owner and the agent where very helpful and kind and we even got to stay there for 2 extra days out of courtesy of the house because we where delayed due to the french air strike. We can highly recommend it to everyone who are looking for some relaxation in luxury surroundings.

Owner's Response: That's great to hear and nice to get it onto the 'Owners Direct' site. We have a Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor with over 20 recent very positive reviews but not many guests take the trouble to leave anything with the 'Owners'. Thanks to Sue & Steve Phillips and their family.

From the Owner

A well equipped and furnished large villa with private pool and jacuzzi with great views over the Med. The proximity of the beach, restaurants, bars and local shops meaning that you don't have to drive everywhere, although it might help. Please note that we do not allow pets or animals at this villa.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 20 Miles Nearest Barpub : at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Golf : at 0.75 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : at 0.5 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : at 0.2 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Max's Beach at 0.5 Miles Car: recommended


3 mins drive, 15 mins walk. Good sandy beach with two restaurants & bars. Interesting rocks and ability to go for long walks round headland.


25 mins from Malaga airport. 10 miles from Marbella centre. 20 mins drive to pretty Mijas village. Personally I would always hire a car and our welcoming pack/notes provide our recommendations for best value.


As above

Further Details:

We recently discovered within a 5 min walk a small complex of a supermarket, a Pasta/Pizzeria, a traditional Spanish restaurant and a Steakhouse/Grill, bar, hair salon, international paper shop. David Beckham and family have frequented one of them so that may either encourage or disencourage you! A further more extensive range of supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars are just at the bottom of the main road, 3 mins drive or 15 mins walk. But remember to get those views we are on a hill so you have to walk back! Take the car.

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable Damage Deposit £500

Booking Notes:
Depending on how far in advance of the booking dates you book we normally ask for a 50% deposit (non-refundable) and the balance 6 weeks prior to the date. We send you out a booking pack which includes notes on the property and contact details of local services. We will not let to parties under 21 years of age and for 2015 we will be asking for a nominal returnable £500 deposit against damage, excessive cleaning bills etc. You are met personally and seen out by our Managing Agents.

Changeover Day:
Would prefer Saturdays but out of the high season we will always try to be flexible.

Notes on prices:
For longer lets contact us for a deal. But please nothing more than 28 days. Through our first 3 years the bookings interest has been phenomenal. As the Marks & Spencer ad would say 'this is no ordinary villa', it is very high class accommodation in a great location.

Generally 50% on booking, balance 6 weeks beforehand. If over 9 months ahead then the deposit may be paid in two tranches of 25%.

  • Notes on accommodation: This is a very secure gated property with a video entry phone. There is a car port for two cars within the grounds. To get to the front door there are a few wide steps with a handrail. Internally there are also a few steps down to the lower level and externally a few steps to reach the terrace on the same level. We looked at nearly 20 properties. This one had the 'wow' factor. The owners showed impeccable taste in refurbishing the interior just a few years ago. It is very well situated for tennis or golf with the Miraflores GC a few mins away as well as their driving range which is separately run. All double glazed for a peaceful holiday. Has proved to be very popular with families, groups and golfers so do book early. Outside: The villa has two terraces. The main one - see picture with balustrade is very large and contains the private pool and jacuzzi. Due to their love of entertaining the previous owners took the unusual step of creating an outdoor kitchen with oven , dishwasher and fridge. This year we have added a very good gas barbecue. Please top up the gas bottles during your stay. The idea is that there should be some left from the previous clients but if it runs out you may need to buy another bottle from the gas station. There are recliners on which to sun bathe, a table and chairs, seating 8, for guests to enjoy al fresco dining. This a south west facing villa so it gets the sun most of the day and although the pool is not heated it will get very warm come the summer! Another odd feature that we liked was what we call the 'vertical' garden. This is below the second level terrace and is quite extensive but follows the natural fall of the land. During 2013 you can even pick your own bananas! See pic Utility Room: External wash/dryer. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: We give it to you spotless and clean/replace towels and linen at the end of each week. Any problems during your stay just call our managing agents. Some-one will be quickly round. In the hall you will find a booklet on the internal working of the house. Other: Pictures best show the whole property. The split level lounge has effectively a separate living area. Large comfortable sofas in both areas. Secondary living room very useful for the children with DVD/Plasma. PS2 and games supplied! And a great telescope!
