“Another Big Wow”
Reviewed 14 January 2017 for a stay in May 2016

We book through carina and Jesper every year however this year was the first time we stayed at Hierro Pena...our party this time consisted of 4 adults and a 4 year old. As always we loved our stay, we know Los Romanes very well now and although this particular house was more remote than where we would normal stay it was perfect and we had, as always, so much fun. The track is very bumpy and up a steep hill but once you've taken the journey a few times you get used to it. As always we shop at velez malaga, a 20 minute drive and walk along the front at torre del mar, about a 30 minute drive or visit the beach at Nerja, a 45 minute drive.....we eat out at El Charcos in Los Romanes and ALWAYS visit Chez Spice, the Indian Restaurant (part tippee) in the hills at Los Romanes..... Would highly recommend if you want to get away from EVERYTHING! Only thing I would comment on is there is no sofa in the lounge and the wall mounted Tv faced into the kitchen so if you (well the kids) wanted to watch a film etc of an evening maybe, you couldn't..... Hopefully changes have been made :) thanks Carina and Jesper, see you in July!

“Yet another "Wow"”
Reviewed 28 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is the third villa that we have rented from Carina & Jasper. It again has the most amazing views and is situated up in the hills from Los Romanes. We were a group consisting of 2 grandparents, 2 daughters and son-in-laws and 3 grandchildren. Every thing that you would need is at the villa, lots of space to spread around and welcome shaded areas. The road to the villa has 2 hairpin bends and deep drops off the sides...but no real problem with careful driving!The views of Lake Vinuela as you drive down to the beaches are wonderful.
This is really a lovely area of Spain and the cost of living is so reasonable, eating out at the village restaurants is so good and cheap!
Many thanks to our hosts...Carina & Jasper...see you next year.

“Can't fault this exclusive offering epic full hideaway absolutely idilic”

Am writing this sitting watching the sun go down on a beautiful Moroccan inspired terrace.
The only sound is from the birds on the hillside. Spotlessly clean and wonderfully styled it is far better than the photos would have you believe. The property has all you could want all mod cons dishwasher microwave wireless internet etc etc. large selection of DVDs if you can tear yourself away from the views ....the pool is as inviting as it looks and its all ours non of the usual hotel throng! You will need a car to get here but we can't fault the experience. Excellent value for money recommended for anyone who wants to get away from it all FABULOUS. 06/06/2014 If you have booked this your in for a treat!

“Beautiful idyllic villa”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

When you first follow Carina up the winding narrow mountain roads- it's quite an experience!! But what awaits is an absolute delight. A quaint and beautiful farmhouse with stunning mountain views. Very clean and well stocked with everything that you need, including wifi & a DVD player. Plenty of tea lights for sitting out at night under the stars!
We arrived quite late on a Sunday evening & Carina had taken the trouble to stock the fridge with a few essentials for breakfast; bread, local cheese & ham, yogurts and even a bottle a bottle of fizz which was a nice touch. The kitchen was so well stocked to cook you needn't worry about dining out all the time. Carina even left us some local spices.
There are some excellent local restaurants nearby though which Carina left us cards for. Shops; You can get a few essentials at Los Romanes co-op but there is a Eroski hypermarket at the Velez-Malaga junction for the big shop which is better.
We would definitely stay here again. If you want a relaxing chilled out & peaceful holiday where you don't need to see another soul! This is the place for you.

“Beautiful house, full of character and attention to detail that made for a very relaxing stay”
Reviewed 19 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

After a delayed flight and long journey,with our three tired children, we were met by Carina in the early hours and shown to the house. Up a steep mountain lane in the dark the loveliest house awaited us and made the waiting around for hours and hours at the airport all worth it.
This house had everything we needed and more. A fully functional kitchen, equipped with everything you could possibly need, comfortable beds, clean and uniquely decorated bathrooms, air-con for a good nights sleep, the all important wifi (for the teenage boys to continue to function), a good sized swimming pool and the most amazing setting with views across the mountains you could never tire from.
But it was the attention to detail and little touches that really made this house special: candles, tea-lights and lanterns to light in the evenings, beach towels provided so we didn't have to fill our cases with them , beautiful soft furnishings to make things so comfortable, napkins, soap, washing-up liquid, even cotton buds!! Small thoughtful things that made a such difference.
We spent our days lazing by the pool (whilst the kids never got out of it) and then either having a bar-b Que or eating at one of the excellent restaurants in the area.
We also benefited from our teenage boys having their own self-contained part of the house downstairs where they could lay-in undisturbed and stay up, late not disturbing us!
There was also enough room for my mother to come out and join us for a week.
All in all we had the most relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable time at this property and will certainly be going back.
