“Spacious, convenient town house but cleaning issues and difficult access”
Reviewed 13 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

person found this review helpful

Casa Mirador has many attractive features and being situated in the middle of the small gastronomic town of Benahavis, not the least is its minutes-away location to a dozen or more great restaurants. It's Tardis-like size was great for the two of us; large lounge/kitchen area, two spacious bedrooms and up and downstairs shower and toilet with well equipped kitchen and utility room, although we found the washing machine door was broken and not in use for us so had to resort to hand washing.

An upper and lower terrace overlooks rooftops and the Gran Hotel Benahavis with mountains behind in the distance, but for us spoiled by not having been cleaned; a cigarette end, old drinks can, food crumbs and dust-matted hair in the corners remained from previous occupants. We had to clean all this up ourselves at the start (and end) of our week. Nevertheless a request to leave a generous €50 for the cleaner was honoured although no-one appeared at all during the week.

There is a Weber gas barbecue on the larger upper terrace which was filthy with grease and stale meat bits from previous occupants. Despite informing the owner about this immediately nothing was done and we had to tolerate it the whole week. We weren't inclined nor had the materials, to clean it ourselves and it smelled and attracted flies in the heat. The rest of the house was very clean however and the owner has already paid us £50 compensation but we'd rather have had a properly clean house to start with.

Something the owner can't do anything about however is the very difficult access and objectionable neighbours who strongly objected to getting the car closer up the hill section to load/unload luggage and shopping. From your car park space you otherwise have to walk a total of 60m on the flat, 30m up a steep 1-in-3 hill, a further 27 steps up, then across a small square and 13 steps down with another 3 up into the house. The owner misleading calls this 'a little stroll'. For us in 33 degrees C heat, it was exhausting and perhaps the one reason we will not be returning.

We're pleased that like you appreciated the spaciousness and quality of our Spanish home and it's great location in the heart of the village. Parking in a mountain pueblo is not without its drawbacks though we have always been grateful that we can park our hire car in a safe place (viewed from the house) that doesn't involve navigating the villages some what narrow streets. Though other guests have chosen to park in the covered church car park which doesn't involve the hill or steps you found difficult.
I'm sorry that the previous guests did not leave the BBQ in an acceptable state and we will consider not offering the BBQ in the future if this ever happens again. I'm pleased to say the washing machine has been fixed, so guests can continue to avoid airline suitcase charges knowing that they can freshen things up during their stay at Casa Mirador.

“Fantastic house a real gem”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Having been to Benahavis many times we wanted to find somewhere with nice views and close to the main streets...Casa Mirador delivers on both counts spectacularly....

Make sure you park in the high street or free public carpark if you can, then it's a dead easy walk....

It has a perfect location and the owners have refitted the house with style and imagination using quality fixtures and fittings.

It has two lovely balconies, the top one is large enough for a BBQ, 4-6 sun beds, and a table and four chairs, both have uninterrupted views to the mountains.

All the restaurants and shops are about a minutes easy walk away and the local pool which is brilliant about 10 mins walk down the hill and about 15 back, cheap at 4euros for entrance and a sun bed....great pool bar a cafe thee as well....

Two nice size bedrooms and two bathrooms, both we great showers!

Can't recommend it highly enough....Nice job Jenny!

Thank you so much for reviewing your recent holiday in Benahavis. It's lovely to receive such kind comments. Casa Mirador is our second home and we furnished it with things from our English one...wish we had the new shower room at home too!
The village pool is a real bonus and often hardly used so glad you got to enjoy it.
We hope you'll return again to Benahavis and when you do, take rest at Casa Mirador.

So kind of you to post a review about your stay at Casa Mirador. It's lovely to hear that others have enjoyed our little haven as much as we do. Benahavis certainly has an abundance of really good restaurants which are just a stroll away. So having made it to our house, there's no hills to climb, whether it's for that coffee and pastry in the morning or the full on dining experience in the evening...though that does mean you can't walk off those pesky little calories!

“STUNNING !”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This apartment is stunning. You will not be disappointed ! The views from the balcony and the terrace are the best as you enjoy a glass of wine. The location is superb .. 50 metres from front door to the village eateries.
The owners certainly know how to cater for every holiday maker with everything you could possibly want in the apartment from fabulous toiletries to cling film!
There are no negatives to post !

“Home fro home in benahavis”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Thank you Jenny and Glen for arranging the sunshine enabling us to take advantage of the local beaches. You have clearly put in a lot of thought about what makes an ideal holiday homeThe attention to detail and perfect location in the village has made this a wonderful experience The golf courses on the road to the village are stunning and we wished that we were golfers to enjoy this facility. We have loved being in the house, particularly sitting out on the terraces.The location provides peaceful mountain views as well as convenience to local amenities The local restaurants have been welcoming and cater for all taste. We have eaten loads ,drunk a bit and laughed for hours.

Response to review:Thank you very much for your kind comments, we're glad other people enjoy our home as much as us. We feel very lucky to have found the village and a charming house in which to spend our holidays. Like you we are not golfers but with so many fabulous courses on our doorstep perhaps we should take it up...maybe walk off some the calories consumed in the great restaurants!
