  1. This is my families 3rd visit to Nerja and second time staying in this beautiful villa. This time, for more space we took advantage of the new apartment. The villa is furnished to a very high standard and the owners have thought of every little detail. We were so comfortable and made use of the swimming pool and jacuzzi. The apartment was well laid out and furnished to a high standard. The only issue we had was with the shower in the apartment, which wasn’t draining properly, so my daughter and her partner had to use the shower in the main villa. This was an inconvenience, However Ann and Chris did all they could to resolve the problem. I’m sure this is just teething problems and will be sorted. We all love Nerja and I’m sure we will return again

    • We thank you for your honest review and for your understanding during this period, with what you say are teething problems. We also hope that this matter will be solved speedily and to everyones satisfaction.
      It was a pleasure to have you and your family stay at the villa again this year and we look forward to future visits from you.

    A lovely villa, fantastic location, very clean and great facilities. There are lots of little touches that make the villa very homely. Super quality kitchen equipment including nice glasses, cutlery and crockery. You have a choice of gas or charcoal BBQ. The pool area and hot tub are fantastic. We spent our first holiday with our 9 month old baby here and used the heated pool and jacuzzi daily. The location being a few minutes from the beach and old town make this a great place for a family holiday.

    • Hi,
      We’re so glad that you enjoyed your first family holiday in Nerja. It sounds like you all had a good time and thank you for your kind comments about the villa and for leaving the property in a clean and tidy condition on your departure.
      We would love to welcome you all back for another visit should you be able to come.

  3. We have recently returned from a family holiday at this beautiful villa celebrating my 60th birthday with our sons and their wives. From entering the villa all I can say is that we were extremely pleased with the presentation and quality of all of the furnishings, even down to the crockery and glasses. The villa is well laid out with plenty of space, the pool was checked and cleaned during our visit as well as the jacuzzi. Everything has been thought through for the comfort of your holiday. The area is quiet and not far from the beach which is easy to walk to – easier going down than coming back up like most of Nerja ! I would definitely recommend this villa.

    • Hello Sue,
      We are glad to hear that you enjoyed celebrating your birthday with your family at our villa. Thank you for your kind comments and we will pass them on to our team in Nerja, it is great to hear that people appreciate the efforts we all go to to make your stay memorable.
      We would love to welcome you back if you come to visit this part of Spain again.

  4. Excellent!
    Our first visit at this fantatic villa. 4 generations, from 2 to 83. No problems if You don’t have problems walking stairs. Lovely and well equipped villa. Heating the pool was perfect. Surroundings beautiful. Nice and cooled bedrooms. We can definitely recommend this villa to everyone searching an upmarket house for a nice visit in Nerja. Don’t forget to visit the caves or Frigiliana or why not bring your padel rackets!

    • Hello Stefan,
      We are glad to hear that the four generations of your family all enjoyed your first stay at our villa, and we appreciate your kind comments. We do try to make sure our guests all have a good time and it would appear that you certainly did this. We will be glad to welcome you all back should you choose to visit Nerja in the future.

  5. This is our third visit to this beautiful villa in Aljimar. It has a fantastic interior with every possible convenience and amenity with high level of comfort. The design is modern and yet homely. The outside areas are fabulous with beautiful private pool and plenty of seating and lounging areas. The 3 outdoor areas provide sun and shade in equal measures all day to suit everyone’s needs. The owners are wonderful to deal with and have agents who are always available should there be any problems, which I can say I have never encountered any. Overall this is the best villa we have stayed in and we have tried several over the past 12 years. Highly recommended

    • Hello SUzanne,
      We thank you for your very nice review and are glad that you enjoyed your time in our villa. We look forward to welcoming you back again next year as we know that you have already indicated that you are planning to return.

  6. Aljamar was our home for 2 weeks in July 2018 and we enjoyed every minute of our stay!
    We were a family of 6 spanning 3 generations (aged between 3 and 65) and everyone found what they needed in the villa – including plenty of space. The lovely pool area was the highlight for everyone and although we visited the blue flag Burriana beach several times (it’s only a 5-10min walk away), the kids were forever asking when we would be going back to the house!
    Ann & Chris, the local property managers, could not have been more helpful – from the point of booking to our sad departure to the airport to fly back home. Nothing was too much trouble and any small issue we had during our stay was fixed immediately.
    You really don’t need a car for this Villa (we didn’t have one – Ann & Chris arranged excellent airport transfers for us). 2 supermarkets are within a 10min walk away and the provided shopping trolley was really useful for stocking up on provisions. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants, with literally hundreds of them within 5 – 20min walk from the villa.
    The walk back from Burriana beach or the old town does involve a rather steep hill and we would recommend anyone with small children to take a buggy, even if your child is on the verge of not needing one (when our little one wasn’t in it, it was a useful ‘mule’ to make carrying our beach gear just a little easier!).
    Overall, a wonderful stay in a lovely villa. Thank you & we look forward to returning!

    • Hello Chris,
      We are pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed your holiday in our villa, and appreciate your kind comments about our house and facilities. We will of course pass on your comments to our team in Nerja, and look forward to welcoming you back should you come to this part of Spain again.

  7. We enjoyed a 2 week stay in Aljamer apartment, the apartment is furnished to a high standard. Very clean with all amenities and equipment you would need

    Both front terrace and swim pool areas are really nice areas,

    Chris and Ann who meet you are helpful, and Steve the Pool man was excellent too.

    Nerja is a lovely place, with Burriana Beach about 10 minute walk away (up hill on way back) and the main town about 20 Minutes away.

    Highly recommend the villa and definetley will return

    • Hello Neil,
      We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our villa and we will be sure to pass your comments on to our team in Nerja.

  8. We enjoyed a one week stay in Villa Miramar on the 6th Aug 2018 with all of our family – 6 adults and 2 children, 6 and 7. The villa is absolutely perfect with all the facilities you need, a real home from home and to a high standard. The villa was clean and everything in full working order. Chris was extremely helpful. There is a supermarket nearby and it’s a short walk to the beach – it is uphill on the way back. Nerja is beautiful with lots of shops, restaurants and bars, you don’t need to go anywhere else. There is something for everyone in this villa, if you want to chill out, be in the pool or work out in the gym!

  9. Stayed at Villa Miramar for 2 weeks in July 2018. Fantastic property with everything you need for a self catering holiday. Chris is a great guy and always avaible by phone or email. The pool guy Steve was also really friendly and chatty, we were really happy to sit and chat while he cleaned the pool! From the apartment to the main floor of the villa is 3 flights of stairs so just bear in mind if anyone has mobility issues. Would recommend letting Chris and Ann arrange transfers as the company they used were very reliable. The villa is in an amazing spot as the sun starts on the roof terrace first thing and stays in the sun until early evening. There are plenty of places to be in the shade if that’s what you want.

    • Hello Shelly,
      We thank for your very nice review and will be glad to pass your comments on to our team in Nerja.
      Should you think of returning to this part of Spain we will be happy for you to stay in our villa again.
      Linda and Alan

  10. Stayed at Villa Miramar for 1 week in August 2018, we were 10 persons between family and friends. In one word : THE Paradise.
    First o all, a big thank to Chris and Ann for their welcome and relationship. They facilitated our arrival by leaving our luggages at the villa what allowed us to go to the lunch befors to install our clothes. Chris and Ann are very kind, they made it easy for us to book a transfer for our outing in Malaga and Granada.
    Regarding the villa, what a villa! Everithing is perfect, the villa is furnished with great taste, the furniture is beautiful and the equipment of good quality as well as bedding. The villa is very well located in Burriana, the beach is 5 minutes walk and the center is a half an hour but it is still a pleasure to ride there but we get used it! The last hill is just a little feel for the return on foot. Otherwise, there is Nerja taxis easy to book for approx 5 – 7 euros.
    The villa I miss already, I recommend and for sure we will come back 🙂

    • Hello Isabel & Joel,
      We thank you for your kind review and will be only too pleased to welcome you back, should you choose to come to Nerja again.

  11. Returned from a lovely stay in this villa in Nerja. Lovely quiet location as it is in a very residential area, though easy 5 minutes walk to Burriana Beach area, with its many bars, restaurants and shops. We only went into this area once as the old town is fantastic. We visited with 3 teenage children, 19, 16 and 14 who stayed in the separate apartment. This was great for them to feel independent of us and it was furnished beautifully, though I would be very reluctant to do this with any younger children. Pool area is a great size and enough good quality sun loungers for all. For those who want some shade there are 2 seating areas and 2 brolley’s for over the loungers to help. The villa and apartment are split level and there are lots of steps so anyone with mobility issues or toddlers may need to give this some thought. Fine for us but did think had Grandma come with us she may have struggled. Bedrooms all of a good size, especially the master, all with superb air conditioning. A safe is provided for passports, cash etc. Lovely terrace with great views to laze on an evening and drink Sangria! Sky TV in all UK channels also available. A huge supermarket is a 10 minute walk away up hill with the empty shopping trolley and luckily downhill on the return leg. Note the main supermarket is closed on Sundays, so a much smaller one is all you will have. We took no toiletries with us as we knew we could buy them reasonably there. It’s the equivalent of a UK Tesco/Sainsbury size and similar in price. The old town is really beautiful and you can eat in the many restaurants from their special menus(of which there are many) from as little as 10 euros for a 3 course meal, to speciality steak and seafood restaurants. Its a great relaxing bustling typically Spanish small town. Would highly recommend.

  12. We have recently returned from staying in Villa 9C in Aljamar and had a wonderful holiday. The villa is extremely well equipped with everything and good quality furnishings and kitchen equipment. We found extra chairs and a parasol in the garage which we were able to take to the beach with us and a large selection of inflatables and lilos for the pool. We very much appreciated the seating and pergola areas outside leading from the lounge which were in the shade during the hot sunshine. Equally there were plenty of sunny areas around the pool and on the terraces. The hot tub on the upper terrace was just wonderful with fantastic views across the town and mountains, equally we enjoyed the same views from the large terrace leading off the lounge area. Burriana beach is a few minutes walk away with all facilities and many places to eat, drink and shop. The Balcon de Europa is about a 20 minute walk down and uphill again where there are a huge variety of restaurants to choose from and quaint shops along the narrow streets. The view across the mediterranean is superb from the Balcon de Europa and the area has a very relaxed atmosphere where you can eat, drink and shop. I would highly recommend this property as it really has everything you could possibly need and more.

    • Hello Janice,
      We thank you for your nice review of our property and are glad to see that you and your party enjoyed your holiday.
      Should you wish to come to this part of Spain again in the future we would only be too pleased to welcome you back.

  13. We have stayed in villas in Nerja a few times now. Each time there is always something you need to complete your holiday. When we arrived at your villa it is obvious that Chris and Ann go the whole hog to make it presentable. It has the wow factor when you walk in any room. The fact it was on practically five floors gave everyone a place to go if they wanted some space on their own. The oldest in the family is 70 the youngest is 6 years old.When we went shopping it is a long drag to lug your shopping bag.But there is a shopping trolley in the cupboard. When one of the grandkids broke his toys we found super glue in the toolbox. You literally didn’t want for anything.I’d give it 5 stars for presentation and 5 stars for every thing else. It was the best villa for everything. The sun came on the pool area around 1pm and we don’t use the pool till after lunch. It was just fabulous. The balcony for your evening meal we could eat and watch the sun set. What more can I say than it exceeded all expectations.
    Thanks for an unforgettable holiday .And thanks to Chris and Ann for working the Oracle behind the scenes.

    • Hi Robert
      Many thanks for your fabulous review. We are glad that you enjoyed yourselves.
      Chris and Ann can always be relied upon to go the extra mile.
      We look forward to seeing you back here again.
      By the way, an invoice for the superglue will follow.

  14. Met 10 personen: 6 volwassenen en 4 teenagers, waren wij een week in villa Miramar. Het huis is gebouwd tegen een helling en verrassend groot, van dakterras tot gym maar liefst 6 verdiepingen. De woonverdieping (keuken, eetkamer, zitkamer, terras) met de ingang op straatniveau was voor onze groep ruim genoeg om samen te eten en de zonsondergang te zien. Vanaf het terras een uitzicht naar beneden, in een groene vallei en aan de overkant een wijk met voornamelijk witte huizen. De keuken is voorzien van alle apparatuur en heeft genoeg bergruimte.
    Het hele huis is goed ingericht. 3 slaapkamers zijn op de verdieping onder het woongedeelte, met rondom een terras, dat uitkijkt op het zwembad. De andere 2 slaapkamers zijn in het appartement, waar onze 4 kleindochters het rijk alleen hadden.
    De ligging van het huis is erg fijn. Het laatste van een blokje van 5, gebouwd aan een soort vallei. Vanaf het zwembadterras leek het een groene oase, met een bijna tropische begroeiing. In de bomen huizen eekhoorntjes. De akoestiek in de “vallei” was heel goed, zodat het geluid van de bewoners van de appartementen aan de overkant te horen was. Wij waren er in de herfstvakantie, het was toen erg rustig, maar is het mogelijk in de zomer wat luidruchtiger. Het huis is niet aan te raden voor gezinnen met kleine kinderen, vanwege de vele (marmeren) trappen. Voor ouderen is het belangrijk om te weten dat de weg naar het strand behoorlijk afloopt, wat op de terugweg een goede conditie vraagt.
    Nerja zelf is een leuke plaats, met veel winkels en eethuisjes. Mooie straatjes, goed onderhouden en veel (palm)bomen. Ondanks dat het eind oktober was, na een hete zomer, was alles nog fris en groen. Om het dorp heen zijn veel villawijken, maar nergens is hoogbouw.
    Het Burriana strand is vlakbij de villa, een groot strand met veel voorzieningen. Maar lopend door het dorp kom je nog meer grote en kleine strandjes tegen. Sommige alleen met trappen te bereiken.
    Het is fijn dat we via Linda en Alan boodschappen konden bestellen, zodat we bij aankomst op zondag een gevulde koelkast hadden.
    Kortom: een fijn huis in een mooi sfeervol dorp, een oase in een kuststreek waar hoogbouw de toon zet.

    With 10 people: 6 adults and 4 teenagers, we were the last week of october in villa Miramar. The house is built on a slope and surprisingly large, from roof terrace to gym no less than 6 floors. The living floor (kitchen, dining room, lounge, terrace) with the entrance at street level was enough for our group to eat together and see the sunset. The kitchen is equipped with all appliances and has enough storage space.
    The whole house is well furnished. 3 bedrooms are on the floor below the living area, with a terrace overlooking the pool. The other 2 bedrooms are in the apartment, where our 4 granddaughters had the realm alone.
    The location of the house is nice. The last of 5, built on a kind of valley. From the pool terrace it looked like a green oasis, with almost tropical vegetation. The acoustics in the “valley” were good, so the sound of the apartments across the road could be a bit loud. We were there in the autumn, it was very quiet then, but it is possible in the summer a little noisier. The house is not recommended for families with small children, because of the many (marble) stairs. It is important for the elderly to know that the road to the beach is steep, which requires a good condition on the way back.
    Nerja itself is a nice place, with many shops and eateries. Beautiful streets, well maintained and lots of (palm) trees. Despite the fact that it was late October, after a hot summer, everything was still fresh and green. Around the village are many residential areas, but nowhere is high-rise.
    The Burriana beach is near the villa, a large beach with many amenities. And walking through the village you come across more big and small beaches. Some can only be reached by stairs.
    It is nice that we could order groceries by Linda and Alan, so that we had a full fridge on arrival on Sunday.
    In short: a large, comfortable house in a beautiful atmospheric village, an oasis in a coastal region where high-rise buildings set the tone.

    • Hello Anneke,
      We are pleased to hear that you and your party enjoyed your holiday in our villa, and appreciate your kind comments about our house and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you back should you come to this part of Spain again.

  15. We had a Superb family holiday in the Miramar. Our party consisted of me , over 70, and 4 young children but despite the steep hill up to the house from the beach area we still had a wonderful time. The house is extremely well equipped with sky tv and a great swimming pool area. Possibly not suitable for older guests or those with restricted movement for most it is a great position. Strongly recommended. Colin Sexstone

    • Hello Colin,
      Thank you for your review and we are glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at our villa, despite the hill. We look forward to seeing you again should you wish to visit this part of Spain in the future.

  16. We’ve just returned from a fantastic holiday in Nerja, which was made all the better by our stay in the beautiful Miramar villa.
    In all our years going on holiday this was by far the most impressive villa we’ve stayed in.
    It’s modern, very clean and very comfortable. The owners have thought of everything and guests don’t want for anything.
    The outside spaces are amazing, from the roof terrace down to the unbelievable pool/hot tub area, which has its own toilet, kitchen and barbecue area – it’s a space you’ll find very hard to tear yourself away from. My two sons loved it.
    The location is a winner too – only 5 minutes to the beautifully chilled-out Burriana beach area with its array of lovely beach bars, restaurants and shops.
    The old town is only a 15-minute walk away and is stunning with its small streets and vast choice of restaurants and shops to choose from. The view from the Balcon de Europe will take your breath away – no matter how many times you visit it!
    Nerja is hilly, so you’ll give yourself a work out walking to the villa and old town, but it’s a very small price to pay to be in such a perfect location.
    The communication with property managers Chris and Ann was superb, so we knew we were in good hands. It was lovely meeting them when we arrived at the villa.
    All in all, my family and I can’t recommend this villa highly enough. If you book it, I guarantee you won’t regret it. It has everything and more, and we will definitely be back.

    • Hello Ross,
      We thank you for your excellent review and are glad that you and your family enjoyed your visit.
      We look forward to welcoming you back again whenever you choose to come to Nerja again.

  17. Myself, husband and 11 year old daughter have just returned from an amazing week at the Aljamar villa. For us it was a revelation, enabling us to take time out from our busy lives and reconnect as a family. My daughter even rediscovered her playful side, and managed to stay off her tablet for a while! Because the villa was so beautiful and well equipped, we did spend most of our time there. Due to the time of year, the pool was not in the sun for much of the day, however with a bit of careful planning this did not prove a problem, as there was always a sunny spot to be found either by the fabulous terrace with it’s amazing views, or in the superb hot tub, so we literally chased the sun around the villa! We soon realised that between 3-5pm was ‘PPT’ – prime pool time, when the sun was directly over the pool, and built our day around that. We paid a little extra for the pool heating and hot tub, which in my opinion is absolutely necessary in October, as we wouldn’t have been able to use the pool without it. The pool heating was one of the reasons we chose the Aljamar, as we have travelled in the past in October and not been able to use the pool. The hot tub was also fabulous on the two cooler days we had. Yes, the walk up the hill from Burriana is a tad steep to say the least however the challenge just added to the fun for us! The villa is incredibly well equipped, a real home from home with lots of nice little touches like the games, books, dvds and pool floats. The service from all the maintenance and management team was brilliant. Chris and Ann responded quickly to any queries and the whole team is very friendly and helpful. We had an amazing time and would love to return, flight prices permitting (as we are bound by school hols). This is by far the best villa we have ever stayed in. We have not been abroad for 3 years, so there was high anticipation for this holiday – it did not disappoint.

    • Hello Alison,
      We are happy to hear that you all enjoyed your holiday in our villa and thank you for your very nice review. We look forward to seeing you again should you ever come to this part of Spain in the future.
      Thank you also for your comments about our on site maintenance and management team, as it is good to hear that they are all doing a good job for us.

  18. What a fabulous start to 2020… Aljamar Villa was simply perfect. Thank you. 10/10! We had a post Christmas Break seeing in the New Year and first week of January, where we enjoyed the terraces, beautiful views, and the ‘heated’ pool and hot tub. Seeing in 2020 from the Hot Tub watching the fireworks all around us was very memorable. The weather was in our favour for the trip, however for a winter visit we would recommend 100% the option of the pool to be heated. We used it everyday. Although we know the Nerja, and Burriana Beach, pretty well having visited in the past with relatives nearby, I still called Chris and Ann prior to booking to talk through our needs and they addressed each point as we are a family of five, with three children 6 – 9 years. The property is pictured accuratlely (in reality its better) as is the description to the location and very well equipped. Indeed, there is a walk down/up to/from the beach. It does not take long and is no hassle. We did it each day, and the kids handled this fine. (fyi for the elderly, it may be more challenging). Finally, I would also recommend to purchase the arrival hamper. Great value, and took the pressure off a little especially if arriving in the evening and you have breakfast sorted. I would like to thank Chris and Ann, they were immeadiatley available and responsive to us should we have needed them without being intrusive. They were a pleasure to deal with pre, during and post our visit. (from someone whom works in the hospitaltiy/hotel industry.. I can be sometimes too critical!).

    Wishing you all the best for 2020, and I am sure we will be in touch again with some dates!!

    • Hello Helen,
      We are glad to hear that you and your family had a memorable at time at our villa and we would gladly welcome you back at anytime. We will pass your comments regarding Chris and Ann on to them and it is good for us to hear that our guests are being well looked after.
      Thank you
      Linda and Alan
