Clean,lots of light and homely

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed our stay.Carl and his wife made sure we had a splendid time.the private pool was the centre of it all...with the hot weather we spent most time in the pool.the view is magnificent,the cool breeze the the evening,the birds and sound of the crickets,the beds were Soo comfortable.i also enjoyed cooking in the kitchen as it has everything u need.

The drive to and out of the villa is a bit challenging but after a couple drives you get used to it.

Over all we loved it so much we will be coming back.

We enjoyed it, but ...

  • 3 of 5

We came expecting a honeymoon rather than the initiation ceremony we received.

That drive! I am comfortable driving a 7.5 tonne truck, but not this! Many times I wanted to shout "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here" but alas I am not a celebrity. Let me tell you it doesn't get any easier as the week goes on. Going out after dark was never an option.

Then there was the power cut, the ant invasion - by land and air. We even put our croissants in the microwave for safekeeping only to open it the following morning to watch the pastries march out on their own.

The villa is a little tired with light bulbs out, exposed wires and a severely limited choice of TV channels ... But, as we were told "it is on the market and the owner doesn't want to spend any money on it". The pool cleaner, when he paid his much awaited visit, was delighted to show us the "actual tarantula" he had scooped out of the pool.

Plus points - Malaga is lovely with lots to see. The caves at Nerja are simply stunning. Eating out was generally inexpensive and the food delicious.

Owner's Response: This review is written with some humor but sadly much of it is either untrue or exaggerated and so needs to be taken with a large pinch of salt! Of course there are no tarantulas in the pool which is maintained weekly. There was no power cut. Should a light bulb fail, there are assorted spare ones in the kitchen. The " exposed wires" are pre installation cables for aircon. The TV, DVD and WiFi are new and work well although I agree the choice of channels in English is limited; apologies. This is a country villa which is accurately photographed, described & good value. Hilltop Comares is around 4km away on a tarmac road which has no street lights so a hire car with lights is recommended! If you are seeking a busy Costa location with British facilities on the doorstep this is not the place. May not be suitable for truck drivers?! Thanks Lee.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the villa, well equipped and butter, jam, beers, eggs, milk etc in fridge ready for us to arrive. This views are stunning, comares is a beautiful village set in the mountains. Lovely eateries, we ate at table mountain and el Molina both very different but both very welcoming. Locals here are all very friendly. The beach resort torre del mar is a short journey down the mountain we really liked it there. The villa is situated in a fantastic position and made our many trips out easy, was always lovely to return to the peace and quiet of these wonderful mountains. In our party there was 5 adults 1 child ages 9, 17,42,50,64 and 74 and this villa was perfect for all ages. Can't wait to return.

Fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Villacarolina is in a fantastic location with wonderful views across the valley. Very quiet and peaceful just listening to the birds and watching the goats on the hillside. The house itself is roomy and we'll equipped and the pool was superb. We were met at the house by Carl who was very friendly and helpful and even had a cold beer for us on arrival along with some other basic groceries. All in all we had a great holiday at Villacarolina. Comares is a super little village with views to die for. There are some excellent eating places roundabout too. Certainly would recommend it and would love to return sometime.

Delightful villa in a perfect rural location

  • 5 of 5

We actually enjoyed navigating the twisting country roads and it was well worth the effort as Villa Carolina was all we hoped for when we arrived - private, peaceful, and in a very picturesque rural setting. We found it immaculately clean, modern, comfortable and well equipped. And the pool was a real treat in the unexpected heatwave with temperatures in the high 30s!

A perfect setting in which to sip a glass of Rioja on the terrace while listening to the birds and watching the goats wander the hillside.

There are a number of bars and restaurants in and en route to the nearby interesting hilltop village of Comares, which has stunning views and also offers a small but well stocked Coviran supermarket, plus pharmacy, ATM, etc. and provided all we needed to top up the supplies we had bought en route at the huge Eroski supermarket in Velez-Malaga.

We can't praise Carl and Maria highly enough. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they were extremely kind and helpful.

We have been to the area many times and this was one of the nicest villas we have stayed in and is excellent value too. Our 2½ week stay was not long enough! We hope to return next year and definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a rural haven in the real Spain

Owner's Response: As regular visitors to the Comares area is so pleasing that Judi & David rate Villa Carolina highly and would like to return. These kind words well describe what the villa has to offer. And yes, Carl & Maria are never far away if any help is needed. Thanks and hope you will visit again next year....

Car: recommended

Villa Carolina is situated in La Alqueria area of Comares on a sunny South facing hillside. Just a short drive from the pretty hilltop village, Comares has stunning views to the Mediterranean coast at Torre del Mar. As well as a small central plaza with a typical tapas bar the village has a good local shop selling fresh local produce, bread, wine & beers, etc.. The bank with cash machine, pharmacy, tobaconist ans several bar/restaurants make it a convenient place to shop and relax.

Villa Carolina is surrounded by countryside and perfect for walking; either directly from the villa or on the marked walks around Comares.

Torre del Mar is the nearest beach resort with a long sandy beach and facilities for all ages. Supermarkets and street markets are found here just 30 minutes drive from the villa.

Malaga is a one hour drive so visiting the old city with Castle, Picasso Museum and great tapas bars is a fun day out.

Granada & the Alhambra Palace is a must see day trip.
