TRIPADVISOR & SAWDAY’S SPECIAL PLACES REVIEWS 2016

MAY 2016

“We had a very happy eight days at Casa Limones. Highlights were the Andalucian sun warming the terrace where we ate our meals, the sparkling pool, the views across the rugged hills and the distant sea, and the privacy. This property is ideal for a couple wanting time together, just to read and relax. We loved the silence, broken only by the breeze and the birdsong. Maureen is an ideal host, warm and friendly but never intrusive (she lives next door). Her two dogs and two cats like to meet the guests and we soon got used to them. In short, idyllic.”


SEPTEMBER 2016

“A truly great little find which had everything we needed, in a stunning location. Comfortable, welcoming and characterful. No hesitation in recommending this wonderful place to all lovers of a peaceful Andalucía.”


AUGUST 2016

“We have just returned from a most restful break in Casa Limones which is situated in a peaceful spot overlooking the mountains and coastline. The cottage was very clean and we had the pool to ourselves to enjoy refreshing swims during the hot weather. Restaurants and places of interest are close by – this is an ideal location with plenty of options for eating and sightseeing. Maureen is very friendly and helpful and provides a warm welcome for her guests, her welcome pack was much appreciated and most thoughtful. I definitely recommend Casa Limones for a relaxing vacation.”


“Fantastic holiday, we can’t wait to go back!!!!!!”

Reviewed August 4, 2016

We had a wonderful holiday at Casa Limones and Los Olivios in early July. We are two couples and so we had both cottages, it was really great chilling out around the pool together and having a dip any time we fancied it ….. The cottages are in the mountains, and you needed a car, but it is really easy to get to local towns and beaches, directions to the cottages given from airport,
were really clear. There are amazing views from both cottages, all windows actually!!!! The cottages are very well resourced and had everything we wanted, the welcome pack and basic food items provided was brilliant Maureen was very helpful, answering our questions before we went and a book provided in the cottages had good ideas for local trips whilst we were there. She was also around nearby if needed. We stayed in Malaga for one night before our holiday and visited the marina, Cathedral and Moorish Alhambra, which was a great start to a fantastic holiday. We were very lucky that the weather was great for most of our week, we went to local beaches and restaurants and ate outside for all our meals, it was such a relaxing and chilled out holiday. Most previous guests in the visitors book have been many times and we too will definitely go back again soon. Thank you Maureen, Stayed July 2016, traveled as a couple


“Beautifully relaxing!”

Reviewed July 15, 2016

We had the most wonderful stay here in this beautiful place, and Maureen was such a wonderful and friendly host! On arrival we were greeted by Maureen, who showed us to our cottage (Los Olivos), which had everything we needed for our stay. She made us feel very welcome and even made us a lovely welcome hamper, the perfect thing to arrive to after our journey, so we didn’t have to rush to the supermarket straight away. The guest book inside the cottage had many recommendations for places to eat and visit nearby, and helpfully listed everything from the nearest supermarket to local shopping and pharmacy etc. This is the perfect place to visit if you want to relax by the pool and take in the stunning views with a glass of wine and a good book. We enjoyed many a lovely evening cooking on the BBQ and dining outside in the company of Maureen’s pets Oscar the cat and Bobby the dog, both lovely friendly animals and very well behaved. We hired a car so we could drive from the airport, which was an easy drive following Maureen’s instructions. It was also helpful to have the car as this is a rural location, and we could drive easily to the supermarket, which wasn’t far, and also to surrounding towns and beaches. We enjoyed visiting the nearby town of Ronda, beaches, and El Torcal, a beautiful nature reserve with great walking trails, views, and a cafe at the end. This really was the perfect holiday and I thoroughly recommend to all! We will definitely be coming back soon!


“Simply superb!”

Reviewed July 4, 2016

Perfect location for relaxing and getting away from everything, can’t believe it’s just over half an hour from Malaga airport. The view from the verandah at Los Olivos is simply stunning, hardly another villa in sight, and sunsets behind the mountains add a special magic. We watched several raptors circling in the sky and many swifts. The swimming pool across the (quiet) road has similarly great views and is perfect for a day’s sunbathing. So many nice touches, from the welcome pack to neatly folded pool towels. Great location for days out too. Ronda, Mijas and Alhambra were on our itinerary and easily reached in an hour or two. Shopping was a doddle in a nearby supermarket where the food was of a good quality. We ate very well. The helpful file of local attractions and services had the added benefit of removable pages to take with you, brilliant idea. Our host was very approachable and friendly, nothing was too much trouble, and patiently answered our questions during booking and before arrival.


“You must go here!”

Reviewed June 8, 2016

Enjoyed our few days here in May. Fantastic weather which we could enjoy right up to the sun set thanks to the hill top location – loved the stunning 360 degree views. The beautiful, cosy cottage which was perfect for our needs. The nearby village of Mijas is very pretty and a trip to Ronda is highly recommended. Maureen is lovely and helpful but also leaves you to your privacy so you feel like you’re in your own private hideaway. The highlight, however, has to be the gorgeous friendly boxer dogs who we very much wanted to take home with us! Would highly recommend to anyone and look forward to a second visit!

“Aaaand relax”

Reviewed January 13, 2016

A lovely out of the way gem. In a quiet spot where you are left alone with your thoughts. Beautiful views and sunsets. The only sounds are the bells on the sheep flock and the gentle breezes through the olive trees. Handy for the beach one way and the mountains the other (great for cycling and mountain climbing). It’s the ideal setting to press the ‘reset’ button and think about life. Also Maureen is a gracious host. She left us lots of treats and goodies in our Welcome Package. I miss this place.
