Villa in Torre del Mar, Costa del Sol, Spain - Secluded Position In A Residential Area Of The Town Accessible To Town, Beach And Motorway
Villa Canaveral is luxuriously appointed and provides a tranquil haven away from the bustle of a busy town centre just minutes away. The villa stands in the centre of its plot, surrounded on 4 sides by sun terraces and landscaped garden. The villa provides truly spacious accommodation over 2 floors. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The main bedroom boasts of a separate dressing area and this could also be used as an additional sleeping area if required. This bedroom also has a separate sun lounge which in turn leads out to a canopied balcony giving views across the town. The well-furnished reception areas each provide a good variety of spaces in which to chill-out. The main reception area additionally opens out directly to the pool which benefits from uninterrupted sunshine throughout the day but natural shade is also provided by a variety of exotic trees giving the seclusion and tranquillity that this property particularly benefits from.

Stunning family property
This is the second time we have hired this lovely family villa, it is everything you would want from a large property great for a larger group. The owner is very easy to deal with answering emails very quickly. The property is easy to access, very close to all facilities, even the local water park which is great for families. Flat easy walk to the beach where there are plenty of restaurants and sun beds but if you want to stay in the property the bbq area is lovely for a relaxing meal. Pool kept very clean as the pool man comes a couple of times a week and always phone numbers on hand if you need help. Only down side is car parking, would be lovely to park car on the property instead of in the road which is a bit tight for turning (recommend parking at the bottom of the road and walking up). Can not recommend this villa highly enough and would stay again.
Fabulous spacious accommodation and ideal location
We have just spent 2 weeks in this amazing villa which exceeded all our expectations in every way. Our first impression was how spacious it was (with a few rooms we didn't even go in!) and what a lovely family feel it had about it. The kitchen is large and well equipped and there was a very welcome 'welcome' pack waiting for us that had everything we needed and more for a quick lunch on arrival. All the bedrooms are of a good size and we were lucky enough to have the master bedroom which was really lovely with its own sun room and balcony. As stated in a previous review, the photos really cannot do this villa justice. The pool is larger than it looks; we had 4 children (in our party of 10) who had a great time in it and it is maintained every 3 days.
The villa's location is perfect (no car required!). Although it is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac it is literally a few minutes walk from the nearest supermarket and only a few short roads back from the sea. Even the water park is within walking distance! The main restaurants (of which there are loads to choose from) again are only a 5-10 minutes walk with a few bars being even closer. Torre Del Mar itself seems to have escaped the main British tourist influx and we hardly heard any other English people so you can get a real authentic Spanish experience here. The beach was quiet, clean and had numerous chiringuitos along the promenade and the sun beds were only 3 euros to hire for the whole day!
I found the owner very helpful and quick to respond to any queries I had before the holiday and there is also a British contact near the villa if you have any questions during your stay.
All in all we cannot recommend this villa highly enough and would definitely stay there again. We felt really at home there and were very sad to leave. You won't be disappointed.
We know Torre Del Mar well and wanted to bring the family out for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. This villa was ideal. The location for town is perfect with quick access to the town centre yet the beach is in easy walking distance. There were six adults and four children aged from 4 to 12 in our party. The accommodation is to say the least high quality, impressive and spacious. It is well cared for and fully equipped with everything needed. The grounds are private, and well equipped for outdoor eating - which we did everyday we were there. The pool was great, cleaned half way through the week and all the pool toys floats etc the kids could wish for. The arrival instructions were explicit and easy, and the welcome pack first class everything to get you started after a long journey, from drinks to bread, cheese, ham and snacks for the kids.
We had great weather and hardly used the lounge and study but both would have been great if we had had to be inside.
The Villa is well described and everything was as the owners described if not better. We have no hesitation in recommending it whatsoever - our daughters and their families loved it and are already talking of going back.
Great holiday spot for the larger families or groups. You won't be disappointed.
We stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in August. We were a mixed age group , ranging from 1 to 57. We had 4 children under 10 and 7 adults. The first thing you notice when you arrive is huge size of the villa. All the bedrooms are large but the master bedroom (which I was lucky enough to be in)is possibly the biggest bedroom I have ever seen. It also has a wrap around balcony which was perfect to retreat to when you wanted a bit of privacy or quiet. The kitchen was also large and had everything you could hope for available. The villa is in the perfect location for a holiday break. A car is not needed at all unless you want to go out exploring the surrounding area. We arranged a pick up and return from the airport to the villa with Malaga Transfers and the mini bus with a trailer for the luggage was 226 euros including the return journey for all 11 of us with 1 baby seat and 3 boosters. The villa is at the end of a quiet cul de sac. It is a short 10 minute level stroll to the beach and only 2 minutes to the nearest bars/restaurants and good sized supermarkets. The town is a very Spanish resort and thankfully we never saw a karaoke bar or any groups of drunken Hen/Stag parties. There are some lovely Spanish tapas bars all over the town but you will also find Chinese and Indian if you fancy a change. There is a water park within walking distance of the villa and the younger ones in our group went a couple of times and said it was worth a visit. Everything considered, we thought the villa was just about perfect for our family holiday. We would definitely return here and would recommend this villa to every one. A lovely house in a great location with everything you will need
The photos of this property do not do it justice. Recently had a special family holiday to celebrate a birthday and everything was perfect. With all adults in the party each room bar one had en suite and the only room that didn't was next to the bathroom. Kitchen well stocked with utensils and bbq easy to use, the supermarket only 5 minutes away made catering for ourselves so convenient. Pool was cleaned three times during our weeks stay so property is well cared for with a phone number on hand in case anything goes wrong. Owners very easy to communicate with when booking and making payments. A ten minute walk brings you to the heart of Torre Del Mar with plenty of Spanish speaking bars and restaurants. Would definitely return with my family again or recommend to anyone.
Stayed in this villa for the first 2 weeks of July. Fabulous. Excellent location at the end of a quiet cul de sac 5-1mins walk from the beachfront. The villa is beautiful inside. The master bedroom itself is enormous! Lovely big kitchen (though could do with an extra couple of sharp knives!) and we had a variety of good and drink waiting for us on arrival which was a nice thought. Living room and study are nice to but rarely used by us during our stay. None of the 3 TVs can get many uk channels including ITV and BBC1 though like I said we weren't in the living areas often so didn't affect us. Pool area is great and the pool itself was a lovely temperature though the greenery round the pool could do with a tidy up. Lots of sun loungers and also some foam mats to lay on these. Pool table in the marquee round the back of the villa was great for the kids in our group. Owners were also easy to contact and were only too happy to answer a couple of questions we had before travelling. I'd definitely come back here and would recommend it to anyone thinking of torre del mar.
