Absolutely Stunning !

  • 5 of 5

The location and the villa is a piece of paradise ! We are a family of 2 adults and 3 children and we absolutely loved our stay.

The villa is just beautiful, very homely and furnished to a high standard with all mod cons that you would need during your stay. The pool was perfect and the sea views absolutely sublime. Paul and Debbie are genuine, lovely people and made our arrival simple and very welcoming. On arrival they had kindly got in some shopping essentials to settle us in.

Cabopino/Calahonda is a lovely area and we will definitely return !

We cannot think of a single (not even a tiny !) negative to say about our week in this great place. We made some fantastic memories. A holiday well worth every penny !

Beautiful villa set in a quite and private location with breathtaking sea views above Cabopino. The hosts Paul & Debbie were very helpful and accommodating. The villa was spacious with a lovely pool and garden for comfortable and secluded sun bathing. We would highly recommend this villa.

Fantastic villa, that totally exceeded our expectations. The view is amazing. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned after spending a fantastic two weeks at this villa. When we first arrived we were greated by Debbie, Paul & their son whom could not have been more helpful. Our first impression of the villa was "wow". The pictures on this site do not do it justice. The grounds, including the pool are amazing with lots of seating areas for sun and shade, all with spectacular views. The villa itself is luxurious with everything you need and is only 5 minutes drive from Capabino marina which has some lovely restaurants and a nice beach. We also spent time in Elvira, which is only 10 minutes drive from the villa and I recommend the Beach house for lunch/dinner. I would definitely recommend holidaying at this Villia; we have had the most amazing time and are already thinking about booking again for next year.

Disastrous Holiday

  • 1 of 5

We were due to stay for a week from 9 July 2016. On arrival the pool was so murky that you couldn't see the bottom. The villa owners agreed that there was a problem, but did not know what had caused it, and could not give us any indication as to when the problem might be rectified. The pool was fundamental to our booking & so we made the difficult decision to leave the villa and try to find alternative accommodation.

There were other, less significant issues with the villa (air conditioning not working, jacuzzi not working, broken furniture, doors and fire exits bolted shut, and general standards of cleanliness), but the lack of pool was our main concern, and the principle reason for having to leave.

We have asked the owners for a refund of the rent which we have paid, but they have steadfastly refused.

Owner's Response: On the Guest's arrival the pool was CLOUDY not MURKY, the pool cleaning company were called and said they would attend the following day (Sunday) at 10.00am to rectify the cloudiness. These guests were offered an alternative villa with private pool which is only five minutes away but they declined. They were told they could stay there and move back to the Cabopino Villa as soon as the pool cleared. We immediately reacted to the client's complaint and a resolution was in place for the following day. With regard to other comments it's probably best to read other reviews and make your own judgement.
