About Sandra A. Gonzalez

My name is Sandra. I am an artist and mother of two lovely girls. My husband is Thai masseur and lover of nature.

Some years ago my husband and me moved from Barcelona to inland Southern Spain to live in a natural environment. We have happily settled into the Southern and relaxed way of life.

We bought the land and built the house ourselves. We wanted to build a new house, vibrant and full of good energy. We wanted to create a home for our daughters, safe and fun. With swings for babies, children and adults. Structures to hanging and a large sandbox where kids have contact with the outdoor elements.

A shaded area with hammocks to relax and enjoy quiet talks.

Weekends we like to go for a walk together. Also go to the beach or the river, where I like to paint and girls play.

Sandra A. Gonzalez purchased this villa in 2009

Why Sandra A. Gonzalez chose Guadalhorce (Costa del Sol)

Malaga has the best weather in Europe. We moved from Barcelona looking for sun almost every day of the year. We moved form one big city to the countryside looking for more quality of life. Coin is close to beach, but with the benefits of the country: fantastic walking, beautiful rivers, natural environment, close to Natural Parks… It is a relaxed and quiet place but with everything you need nowadays to live comfortably and close to many amenities. Beach, Marbella and Malaga city is really close. Also airport is half hour from home.

The property offers the perfect base for day trips to the Costa del Sol: Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, Puerto Banus

Also offers easy and fast routes to Ronda, Gibraltar, Sevilla, Granada, Córdoba and Cadiz.

What makes this villa unique

For us it was important to respect ecological construction criteria and obtain a bioclimatic house: cold in summer and warm in winter. The wooden ceiling insulation carries a natural cork and self-ventilating roof tiles, which provide a temperature difference of 15 ° C with respect to the outside of the house. The walls are built with clay bricks 30 cm wide, which provides a powerful insulation.

It is build for adults and children: many play areas, sandbox, relax areas, terraces, private pool…

My husband also offers professional Thai massage and reflexology.

I offer workshops with different technique:

ceramics, glass jewellery, painting for children and adults.

Beautiful villa and pool in quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The owners Sandra and Juan were so helpful and at hand with any queries. The villa was absolutely brilliant and the photos don't do it justice. It is very clean and there were toys supplied for the children. The pool is a very good size and the kids aged 9 and 2 loved it. We spent a lot of time at the villa chilling. Great sitting outside in the evening using the BBQ. A 5-10 minute drive into coin centre where the shops and supermarkets are. Would we go back again. Yes we would. The villa is half an hour drive from Malaga and Marbella. You do need to hire a car as it is half an hour drive from the airport and to get around.

Wonderful comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Nice location amongst fields and lovely mountain views. Little shop is 5 mins walk away, adequate for most things. Around 20 mins walk or 5 minute drive is Coin town with larger supermarkets Lidl and others. Airport, water parks and beach all around 30-45 mins away by car. Sandra and her family live next door in a separate house, totally private. Easy to contact her by phone if needed and always very helpful. Washing machine was very handy and the washing line outside. My son liked seeing the white horse in the field opposite everyday! He also loved the pool, perfect size and depth for children.

Big veranda with tables & chairs. Kitchen is well equipped with all kitchen utensils, plus kids plates and cutlery.

Kids outdoor toys plus toys and puzzles inside, tv. Lovely shower rooms. House seemed to stay very cool despite the scorching weather - netted windows kept the house cool and bugs out!

Thanks so much to Sandra & Family. A wonderful and comfortable stay and we can't wait to come back!

Excellent villa! Very private, clean and all the facilities you would need.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days arriving 10 June 2017, the villa is very private not overlooked at all; It is exactly how the pictures show.

We would definitely recommend you hire a car, we initially didn't and although there are local basic shops and a few bars we needed to travel further afield. We took a taxi from the villa to Malaga to the care hire office 35 minute drive by taxi which cost 35euro.

You can walk into Coin centre which takes about 25 minutes, the closest main supermarket is not walking distance, again a car is recommended.

The address for the villa was a little confusing for the taxi company we had (their fault), the exact coordinates for the villa using Google maps is: https://goo.gl/maps/PAF6Avw34h52

The owners Sandra & Jaun were fantastic, they leave you to it, the pool is cleaned every other day and was lovely. The villa is fantastic for children, washing machine was very handy.

Our children had a wonderful time 7 and 9 months, we wanted a change from an all inclusive hotel and this villa was perfect.

Thank you Sandra and Jaun

Home from home (if home has sunshine and a pool!)

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent choice for families with young children looking for somewhere safe and self contained.

We were 2 couples with 3 children under the age of 3 and the house gave us plenty of space to socialise and also be private when needed.

The pool is particularly excellent, being raised with removable steps and the children also loved playing in the sandpit and on the swings. There is a fantastic shaded veranda which was excellent for playing and relaxing and the indoor hammocks were wonderful.

Sandra went out of her way to find an extra toddler sized bed for us and made sure that we were all comfortable, nothing was too much trouble.

We spent the majority of the time relaxing at the house but also enjoyed trips to Marbella and Malaga and a beach day too!

We had a wonderful holiday and thank Sandra for fantastic hospitality!

Great spot for kids

  • 5 of 5

just back from 10 days stay. have 3 kids (ages 5,6,10) who loved the house. Pool was perfect for them, sand, swings etc kept them well entertained. We ended up not even going to the beach cause they were happy to stay in the garden. House was very clean and Sandra had a nice welcome pack for us as we arrived late at night. Pool was well maintained (every 2nd day) but was done early in the morning so didn't impact on us at all. Did get it hard to find the house once we got to Coin, but just rang Sandra and she came and collecting us. car parking is tight so if you've a big car you'd need to be careful. small shop in walking distance. Big supermarkets about 5 minute drive. Close to Malaga - managed a half day shopping in a nice outlet. Town of Mijas was about 15k, away and was really nice, good range of restaurants etc. Not much in Coin itself. Great place for young kids for sure. No problem recommending Sandra or the house.
