About the Owner
Apartments "Villa Holanducia" is managed by a Dutch couple with 2 kids that have been living in the south of Spain for 9 years. We have a nice network of contacts with local restaurants, shops etc and we are very much willing to help our guests with reservations in restaurants, giving advice of where to go etc.
4.5 based on 6 holidaymaker reviews
The property is in a great location away from the main noise of la carihuela and the promenade but close enough to stroll easily to all there is on offer. The villa has a lovely pool area but is quite small which, although quaint and intimate, can be intimidating when in use by the owners family when they are visiting. At other times it's pleasant and peaceful. Beautiful canopied seating and daybed by pool but only two sun beds for use between two studios, one apartment and the owners. Tim and his wife live on site with their cute dog, and the other two properties also had dogs staying, which was not a problem for us but may be a considering factor for others who may not be used to dogs or have allergies. Our studio was upstairs, and very spacious with a shared terrace (no balcony) downstairs and a seating area. The terraces for each property did house a lot of the owners "stuff" which could be aesthetically improved upon but the overall appearance is rustic and Spanish/Dutch in style. secure property, as there is a key to access the street entrance as well as property front door. Although linen was due to be changed weekly and towels every other day, beds weren't changed at all in our 11 day stay and towels changed only three times. There is no general cleaning of the room included in price which I had expected but this was my error, as paperwork doesn't actually stipulate anything other than an exit clean. An information manual would have been useful giving details of local area, attractions, buses, emergency contacts etc., as I had no idea what was where and also where to empty bins as these need disposing of off site, and is the responsibility of holidaymaker. There is no microwave or integral oven but the kitchen is otherwise fully equipped and there is a washing machine which is an asset. Parque de Bateria is a short walk away and worth a visit and Napoli restaurant in carihuela is fantastic for pizza, cava and great service.

We stayed in the 1 bed apartment which was lovely and clean. The villa (owner on-site) is in a quiet back-street about a 5 min walk to the promenade. Good facilities, plenty of space for 3, although the third person would be sleeping in the lounge. Plenty of cooking facilities (if you need them, the fish restaurants on the beach are fabulous). We flew to Malaga and caught the train over the road from the airport - it costs about £1.50 each, they run every 20 minutes, (get off at Montemar Alto) then it's an easy 10 min walk to the apartment. Supermarket about 100 yards away selling everything you need, beautiful clean beach 5 minutes the other way with sea suitable for little ones. You can walk along the wide promenade in both directions, lovey for an evening stroll or to wear the little ones out! Usual tat in the shops but some sell good stuff. Fairly quiet, and a nicer option than Benelmadena or Torremolinos itself. Would thoroughly recommend a stay here either adults only of families.
Lovely little place
Had a great stay and its clear Tim is improving the area all the time. Lovely pool and sunbeds. Can't go into everything but what made our stay was Tims customer service when my wife was I'll. A true gent.
Me and my sister have been going to Spain for family holidays for years and this time when we decided to go away ourselves,we wanted to find a quiet,adyllic type of accommodation compared to noisy,crowded resorts.This villa was a gem of a find,the online presentation of the villa including the rooms,pool and general layout looked gorgeous but is even more enchanting on arrival.Our room was of perfect size and furnished lovely and delicately,the pool also great size too for a quiet swim and to cool down.The villa itself resides in a very peaceful part of the town which we prefer but within ten mins down the road has the beach,bars/restaurants.cute little shops and the gorgeous marina.The owner also is a lovely guy and on hand if u have any queries.would definitely holiday there again!!
LOVELY, QUIRKY LITTLE STUDIO
Myself and my husband came over to La Carihuela for a short stay from Thursday until Monday. What a lovely family we came to meet at Villa Holanducia. The drive from Malaga airport was approx 10 minutes and the beach I would say is approx a 10 minute walk, there is a supermarket less than a 5 minute walk from the apartment. The studio was very lovely and definitely catered for two people and possibly would fit in a third. It had everything you needed and I do think would be even great for a longer stay. It had a patio area which was great and was right next to the pool which was nice and shaded but you still got the sunshine. The apartment was very clean and is exactly as described in the listing, and the beds were also very comfortable. The beach is very nice and there is lots of shops and restaurants, much the same as each other but nice. The apartment is only around 10 minutes drive from malaga airport and is certainly very secure. We would definitely stay again and would think of taking over our children next time. We would definitely recommend Villa Hollanducia to friends and family.
Lovely Relaxing Haven Close to Everything
As we were travelling with our three month old son, we wanted to stay somewhere which was more intimate, not a resort, and reasonably priced which had a Spanish look and feel about it and we were so pleased to have found Villa Holanducia.
We stayed for nine nights in the studio on the ground floor and given it was advertised for two people, the addition of a portable cot for our son still gave us plenty of room. The apartment was as shown and described in it's listing, very clean and utilised it's space very well and was private despite being next to the pool, which we really enjoyed having at hand especially after a day out to Malaga or Sevilla on very hot days.
Given we didn't have a car we relied on walking, and the train to get about so the location was perfect. A bus stop, which we didn't use is located just a few metres from the Villa and most importantly, the Supermarket only a two minute walk, again on the same street.
Mireille and Tim were wonderful. Gave us space but at hand whenever we needed anything.
Unfortunately as we live half way around the world I dare say we would not make our way back to Malaga, however should we ever have the opportunity we would definitely stay again and recommend Hollanducia to friends and family.
From the Owner
“We had been spending our holidays for years before we bought a lovely villa with some apartments to rent out to our guests. The area is very nice for both families or couples without children and there is a lot of things that you can do within walking distance. Also there are a lot of different bars and restaurants for different budgets near the apartments.”
Activity and Interests
The beaches of La Carihuela are very child friendly and a lot of families spend their holidays on these beaches so kids will never be bored. From the apartments it is a 5 minute walk to the beach where there is also a large choice of bars, restaurants, terraces etc.
Málaga airport is a 10 to 15 minute drive from the apartments
Center of Torremolinos: 2 kilometer
Center of Benalmádena: 2 kilometer
Center of La Carihuela: 400 meter
The largest supermarket with a wide variety of products is situated at 125 meters from the apartments. There are a couple of banks within a 3 minute walk from the apartments and there are a lot of different restaurants, shops, bars etc for all ages.
There is a nice night life within a short range (walking distance) of the apartments which makes it a great place a well for those who like to go out a bit later as well.
