About kenneth Seal

My wife Esther, teenage daughter and I live and work ten minutes drive from our Villa Mexicana in Torrox. We take pride in our villa which is our second home and are responsive to any of our renters needs. Since we are local (Nerja), we deal with our guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. We are always available for help and advice during your stay.

kenneth Seal purchased this villa in 1998

Why kenneth Seal chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We brought la Mexicana in 1998 after searching for some time for a quiet location with views near to the coast. The villa when purchaced was an old avocado farm. The house is still set within avocado groves but has been transformed into a modern dwelling with all the comforts of home. We like this area for the variety of activities and interests it provides. We are near to the National Park boudary of Sierra Tejeda and Alhama nature reserve which is great for walks and peace and quiet but equally close are historic towns and many beaches. So there is always something to do!.

What makes this villa unique

The rural location with its views and proximity to the coast, together with the intimacy and freedom of a self contained a villa which is a great base for enjoying and discovering our area.

The villa is really beautiful and in an idyllic location. It really is home from home and very comfortable with all the creature comforts.

The scenery and views are stunning from the pretty terrace and the pool is very well maintained with excellent water quality.

Ken and Esther are absolutely delightful and made us feel extremely welcome.

We will definitely return.

Wow what a place to come and relax

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa about 15 years ago and thought it was about time we went back to check it out.

Wow we loved it before but now it is absolutely beautiful and even more space which is fantastic.

There's room for 6 people to sleep very comfortably and places for everyone to get their own space if they need it and plenty of space for everyone to have a get together.

The owner's Ken and Esther are so lovely and we were made so welcome even before we got there.

The contact and information was first class and if we had needed anything I'm sure we would have got it, they were so helpful.

Will we be going back ? most definatley , will we be recommending the villa and it owners to everyone we know , YES YES YES

This is a lovely villa set in the mountains of Spain, and yet only a short drive to the coast - the views are wonderful. If you want to experience the 'real' Spain, this villa is perfect. It is very private and easily accessable from the main routes by car. Local villages, Frigiliana and Torrox are lovely villages for daytime or evening visits. The villa itself is clean and comfortable and the service from Ken and his wife Esther is exceptional - they also call in a couple of times during the week to clean the pool and ensure everything is ok. I would highly recommend Villa Mexicana and would definitely stay there again.

Spanish paradise

  • 5 of 5

Dilemna : I speak the truth saying that we loved everything about this place, risking having it fully booked all the time and not being able to go back... or lie...? Let's be trueful...

We live in Paris so when we go to holidays, we love quietness, nature, sun... but we love going out in restaurants or tapas bars as well. You can combine all this in La Mexicana. The house is set apart in the hills with virtually no neighbours but Torrox, Nerja are easily reached by car. The pictures are trueful, the house is spotless, we would recommend this house to anyone we know.

Four visits and more to come

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming here since 2004 and intend returning in 2012. Everything is as described, everytrhing is clean and well maintained. The location is excellent - secluded, good views and easy access to the restaurants in Torrox, Frigiliana and even Nerja. Drives up to Competa and Lac Vinuela are delightful and the coast from Torre del Mar up to La Herradura is within easy reach. The best restaurants locally are El Figon in Torrox Pueblo and Los Caracoles halfway to Frigiliana over the hills, also Costa del Sol on the coast going east from Torrox Costa. We really love "mooching about" in Frigiliana where the story of trhe three cultures is told via ceramic plaques on a well marked walk. All-in-all a wonderful hideaway holiday home in a beautiful location. Thankyou.

Villa in Andalucia

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described - everything one needed and it was extremely clean and welcoming - not to mention beautifully furnished in traditional style.

The location in the foothills of the Almijara Mountains was secluded, with fantastic views yet in easy reach of the beach and restaurants aplenty.

It was exactly what we were looking for. My husband and another couple spent two weeks there in June and loved it.

The covered patio area, sunny terraces and pool were great for swimming, sunbathing, reading etc. At night we barbacued and watched the sunsets-. We loved the peacefulness of the villa.

Great base for exploring Andalucia and for accessing the smaller white traditional villages of Competa, Archez, Frigiliana and also the lovely town of Nerja, which we loved.

The owners Ken and Esther are very friendly, full of local knowledge knowlegable and generally very helpful. It's very reassuring to know that you have someone neaby to call if needed.

This is a beautiful and comfortable villa,

and I would recommend it to anyone and will definitely be back in the
