TRIPADVISOR & SAWDAY’S REVIEWS 2021 – JUNE 2022

Holidaying here since 2017

We have been coming here since 2017, only interrupted by COVID! It is peaceful and charming, and the pool is a great boon, Both cottages have advantages. Off season, Olivos has a fire, and magnificent views, or lovely if you are a non swimmer. Limones is also lovely and next to the pool. You could not wish for a better host than Maureen. We will be re-booking!

Lovely pool

The perfect spot for our first trip abroad. Los Olivos was comfortable and well equipped for a self catering holiday, Maureen supplied us with a welcome pack which was a great start. Fantastic views of the surrounding hills and countryside and very quiet too. You can use the lovely pool adjoining Casa Limones. Once on the main road there are plenty of places to visit within a reasonable drive including Mijas Pueblo, Marbella and Mijas Costa. Maureen was a great hostess and there is plenty of local information available in the cottage.

Perfect rural getaway

Los Olivos has the most amazing view across the valley and we’ve loved watching the sun change the mountains from dusty pink to a lush green from the terrace. It’s the
perfect rural getaway, secluded and private but a short drive away to well-equipped shops. Maureen is the perfect host and has thought of everything to help you to relax into a comfortable stay in her gorgeous finca. The gardens and pool are immaculate and we’ve enjoyed the company of her gentle and friendly dog. We can’t wait to visit again soon!

Soaring eagles above the hills

We stayed in Los Olivos. An idyllic setting with delightful scenes of soaring eagles high above the Andalusian hills and colourful spring flowers opening up in the sun amongst the olive trees. Ideal to have a swimming pool to dip into across the road and then retreat to our own space to contemplate and enjoy the magnificent sunsets.

The changing light on the mountains

Absolutely wonderful to be able to travel properly again after the last two difficult covid years…. we stayed in Los Olivos and this little corner of Andalucia was absolutely perfect for us. Maureen has thought of just about everything. The houses, the pool and gardens are beautifully maintained and the reality truly matches the photos. The coast is rather busy but it’s lovely to explore the white hillside villages and then come home, have a dip in the pool, sit on the terrace with amazing views, sip something cool and and watch the
light changing on the mountains. Simply idyllic!

TRIPADVISOR
Idyllic and so very relaxing

“We had a great stay here in Los Olivos. The cottage is just as wonderful as everyone else has said in previous reviews and Maureen has thought of everything anyone might need. The pool and gardens are lovely and of course the views are incredible. Highly recommended.”

TRIPADVISOR & SAWDAY’S SPECIAL PLACES REVIEWS 2019

Simply Stunning

A beautiful, peaceful retreat away from the hustle and
bustle of the main resorts but within easy reach of many
popular attractions. The pictures don’t do this place justice,
it has to be seen to be believed! Maureen is an excellent
host and the cottages are fully equipped with everything
you need to enjoy a relaxing, refreshing holiday. We loved
watching the sun set over the mountains each evening with
a glass of wine and looking out for local wildlife. We
returned home feeling rested and relaxed and keen to
return again in the future.

Amazing Cottages with Superb Views

A superb location with wonderful views and fantastic
accommodation. My husband and I were lucky enough to
stay in both cottages and both were delightful. The
swimming pool and garden is a real bonus and is beautiful.
The host Maureen is very helpful and provides a useful
complementary welcome pack which is a lovely touch.
There are 2 lovely boxer dogs Rosy and Bobby who are so
welcoming and well behaved. It really was a pleasure to
stay in the cottages, you really do not want to leave this
little piece of paradise. Thank you Maureen.

Who could ask for anything more

After visiting Casa Limones and staying in the Olivos
cottage for 15 years we said goodbye this August – not that
it lacked anything! On the contrary! The years are catching
up with us and our trip from New York, but we recommend
this beautiful cottage, so conveniently situated halfway
between all those amazing beaches and the mountain
towns including, of course, Mijas Pueblo itself. We have
been delighted with every aspect of this property, whether
it means watching the countless changing scenes the
mountains assume every day or the wonderful care
Maureen takes for every aspect of the ideal get-away. Don’t
wait to book – we would if we could!

Tranquil mountain hidaway

This is the perfect hideaway for those couples wanting
privacy…the views are stunning and the night sky is
something to behold…The finca is beautiful…cosy and
comfortable full of rustic charm….exactly what we were
looking for. The only downside was the pool wasn’t
heated…we’d have loved to have used it. Maureen was
very welcoming but allowed us our privacy to enjoy our
holiday

Christmas at Los Olivos

A great Christmas escape without having to travel too far
to find a milder climate. A lovely peaceful location with
stunning views. Cottage is well presented and comfortable.
Good location to reach Mijas, Marbella, Malaga and Ronda –
a little further afield. Maureen was very helpful and always
replied quickly.
