What an amazing place. Thank you to Maureen, Bobby and the lovely little Bella, for making our stay everything we wished for. We stayed at Casa Limones a beautiful little cottage off the beaten track. The Casa has everything you need for a peaceful, quiet, relaxing break. One bedroom, with a big comfortable bed, a bathroom with a shower and a cosy living/kitchen space. Outside there is a pool, sun loungers (which Maureen supplies towels for x) and three terraced areas where you can relax and soak in the views, one of which has a sea view and the other is perfect for watching the breathtaking sun sets - amazing. Although I mentioned being off the beaten track, you are within driving distance 20 mins or so from Mijas, 10 or so to Fuengirola and lots of other places worth a visit, but I'll let you explore those. I can't recommend this place enough, its perfect for couples who want and need a bit of shush time, Maureen has got this so right and is very helpful, but at the same time acknowledges your privacy and does not intrude at all. Thank you Maureen we will be back. xx P.s - thought I should mention, Bobby and Bella are bouncy friendly boxer dogs so much fun and great to have a round. Oh and another bonus, Maureen very kindly supplies you with a welcome pack - perfect. Go on give it a try you know you want too. xx
“The most beautiful view”

We stayed at Los Olivos at the end of September so I am a little late posting my review. The little villas are set in the mountains and you feel like you are miles away from everything. Actually Mijas is only a short drive. We also visited Marbella and Grenada and Ronda whilst we were there.. There is lots more to see but we found it hard to tear our selfs away from the view from los Olivos.We could have spent our whole holiday looking at the amazing view over the mountains. We enjoyed the visits from the dogs and watching the goatherd moving his sheep and goats across the mountain paths with the help of car service brooklyn to newark. Hope to be back next year.
“Wonderful stay in Casa Limones”
Reviewed October 7, 2014
My partner and I spent a week in Casa Limones, our first visit there and definitely not the last. The cottage is lovely, and the owner Maureen had thoughtfully left us some provisions on arrival such as milk, coffee and most importantly a bottle of wine. The views from the cottage are stunning, you feel off the beaten track and yet there are so many places to visit within easy driving distance. Bobby and Bella, Maureen's Boxer dogs, were very well behaved and lovely to spend time with. The pool area and swimming pool are kept nice and clean and are perfect for lazy days. I can't wait to go back next year!

We enjoyed a wonderful week at Casa Limones in late August. The property was just what we wanted - spotlessly clean, so many wonderful little details to make our stay comfortable. The thoughtful and welcoming Maureen along with Bobby and then new addition to the 'team' Bella, certainly charmed us both. This property has been well thought out with 3 seating areas - shade, view and pool side and only a short drive from the coast or wee white villages. We will certainly be returning and look forward to more time spent relaxing, enjoying the views, and simply lazing in the pool. Don't miss the local fruit and veg from the nearby garden center, do visit Mijas Pueblo and take a little time to explore the 'old town' in both Malaga and Marbella.

We had a fantastic two week break in casa. We wanted a quiet place and that's what we got. We were warmly welcomed by Maureen the owner and Bobby her friendly boxer dog. The welcome pack was excellent. The cottage overlooks 365 degrees of mountain views. Everything we wanted for perfect getta way so perfect for couples. the pool was lovely and relaxing. The terraces are very spacious so we had lots of areas to look at the moutains or read a book. Alfresco in the evening was splendid. We were greated each morning by Bobby who we took a shine to. He is very friendly and we took him for many walks which we found therapeutic. We also met Maureen's new puppy Bella, who was so cute. We particularly enjoyed our trip to ronda. Stunning place. Overall we would highly recommend casa for couples who want a tranquil holiday away from hussle and bussle. Maureen was very helpful if needing anything. We will certainly visit again. Brilliant holiday yvonne & Andy chesterfield.

Los Olivos is the perfect place for a quiet get way, a truly relaxing environment with spectacular surroundings. The pool was refreshing and clean; the cottage tastefully decorated and Bobby was always a pleasant visitor- especially at BBQ time. Maureen is very helpful and went out of her way to make our stay as pleasant as possible. Her recommendations of beaches and day trips are perfect. We will recommend the place to all of our friends and family-perfect!

We're just recently back from a very happy stay at Los Olivos. Felt said to say goodbye. Highlights included: delicious meals thanks to my husband with stunning sunset views over the mountains (why does food taste so much better outdoors?!), the lovely company of Bobby the dog and Oscar the cat who are both very welcoming, sipping beautiful wine under the stars at bargain prices from the local supermarkets. We made good evening use of the sun loungers by spotting some shooting stars at night - very special memories thank you. The pool is wonderful - refreshing in the day, lovely to lie on lilos and read our books, and got so warm by evening it almost felt like a giant soothing bath tub! Maureen looked after us with the welcome drinks and snacks and helped us to give instructions to the breakdown man sent by the car hire company.

This was our first stay at Casa Limone and it was just what we were looking for. Clean, comfortable accommodation with great facilities in a tranquil setting. You get the best of both worlds, peace and quiet, privacy, a truly relaxing environment, beautiful scenery and you're well located to reach Mijas Town in 20 minutes, the coast/beaches in 20 minutes, the coast/beaches in 20 minutes, walks in 10 minutes as well as being well placed to visit Ronda, Nerja and more. Maureen is there if you need anything and very discreet if you want to be left in peace. Beano & Bobby are lovely company (Boxers!). You have everything you need in your own private setting. We will be returning and would highly recommend.

Rita B London, United Kingdom“Spectacular!”
If you want to get away from the hub bub of the usual holiday destinations then this is the place for you! From the very start when we were met by the delightful owner Maureen it was a holiday to remember. The views are magnificent and it is a truly tranquil place to relax either by the pool during the day or the terrace of Casa Limones sipping wine and taking in the wonderful surroundings. We were surprised at the welcome pack including a bottle of cava waiting for us and how comfortable the accommodation was. If you want to drag yourself away from all of this, Maureen's extensive welcome book gave us lots of good advice of places to visit and she was always available to offer good advice and her lovely dogs Beano and Bobby who are so well behaved were a joy. The most relaxing holiday we have had for a very long time and we will definitely return!
Room Tip: Both Casa Limones or Los Olivos have spectacular views and are both very private.

We wished for a week of sun & relaxation, easily accessible and easy on the bank balance, Los Olivos delivered in every way. Just a 40min drive from Malaga, with excellent directions from Maureen (the owner), we wound our way up through the hills to Mijas, a beautiful Spanish town with amazing views of the coastline. Upon arrival we were greeted by two friendly boxers (Bobby & Beano), who turned out to be cracking company for our entire stay. Maureen has really thought through what you'd need to make Los Olivos a home from home, it has everything you need, and if you can't find it the welcome pack certainly tells you where you can. We spent our week relaxing on the sun loungers, and BBQing during sunset, a perfect way to unwind from the madness of London. We'll definitely be going back sometime soon.

This was our second visit to Casa Limones and we loved it just as much as the first. It was the perfect way to spend the week after our wedding, reflecting on happy memories whilst relaxing in the most beautiful surroundings. Casa Limones is perfect for couples; it has everything you need and we were more than happy to spend most of our days by the pool. On this visit, we also made fabulous day trips to Sevilla and old Marbella, and the new road makes such a difference to travelling around the local area. We would recommend a decent size rental car to tackle the hills. If you're thinking about booking, we would wholeheartedly recommend it. Alice and Paul xx

I have recently returned from spending another wonderfully relaxing week at Casa Limones. It really does have all the ingredients to enable me to switch off from the moment I arrive. So peaceful and totally tranquil. I'm already missing soaking up the sunshine and dipping into the pool. Special thanks to Maureen, the proprietor, for yet another fantastic holiday. I'm definitely looking forward to the next visit! I love this place!
Room Tip: Either of the cottages are perfect - the website is very detailed.

I count myself lucky to have found this little gem whilst looking online for a holiday destination for my husband and I! Since e mailing Maureen, the owner, I knew we were going to have a special holiday in a beautiful location and when we arrived it was more perfect than we could have imagined. We stayed in Los Olivos which has wonderful mountain views and overlooks a typical Andlucian olive grove. Maureen made us very welcome and the little touches such as the chilled cava, beer and local delicacies in the fridge were all part of the experience. Waking up every morning to yet another beautiful sunny day was fab as was the breakfast on the terrace overlooking the mountains. We enjoyed evening strolls from the house, using the pool and the company of Bobby and Beano the cute boxers. The accommodation itself was comfortable and the bed was super comfy (especially in my pregnant state)! All this just 45 minutes drive from Malaga airport but away from the busy hustle and bustle of the large resorts. It is simply idyllic and I am really looking forward to returning with the new baby next year. Thanks for a wonderful holiday!

We managed 2 trips before our first baby arrived and we had to take a break from any holidays a while. We most definitely plan to return soon as holidays are back on the menu again. I have no hesitation recommending the cottages to anyone looking for a super chilled holiday in the sun. The views are incredible. The rural location is peaceful and beautiful yet you are still perfectly located for a short drive to the beach, restaurants at the local town etc. We were big on eating out yet there is something about the cottages that makes even the most adventurous not want to leave. It allowed us to completely switch off and all we wanted to do was lazily hang out round the pool and have BBQs in the evening and take in the views. Maureen is an exceptional host and will ensure you have everything needed for a safe and comfortable stay. We fell in love with her gorgeous dogs who would come and say Hi most days and were calm and well behaved and just provided some very welcome company whilst we relaxed in the evenings. We missed them when we were home. Very much look forward to taking the little ones to visit some day soon. We miss the cottages and have really fond memories of our stay there. Cannot recommend highly enough, please see for yourself.
