“Stunning, beautiful and worth every penny”
Reviewed 18 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My wife and I just returned form our wedding in Nerja where we stayed at the villa with friends. What a superb experience and lovely place.
Casa La Buena Vida is situated at the highest point of the main road through Punta Lara and is simply beautiful. it worthy of celebrity status as are many villas in the area. The view is stunning and probably could not be better with it overlooking the whole of Nerja and the seafront.
The bedrooms are great as are the pool and kitchen areas. There is pool room and television (x2) (why you would watch telly I honestly dont know!).
The ONLY downside to this villa is its location in terms of getting to and from Nerja by taxi. Taxis will come to the villa but at a high cost of 17e each way (into Nerja). If you are driving and dont mind the extreme gradients which are 1st gear jobs all the way then you will love this place.
Not for the inexperienced driver or those with little cash for taxis! A large group can easily split the taxi costs but there dont seem to be mini buses.

Congratulations on your wedding and thank you for choosing our villa. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. Regarding taxis - these all tend to be very smart Mercedes cars and I agree that although there are 7 seater taxis available, larger minibuses are not.

17 euros is the normal fare but when this is shared between (say) four people, it can be cheaper than paying for parking.
