We have stayed in this villa this last august, from 17th to 30th. The experience of spending two weeks of our vacation there has been wonderful, just like the last 3 consecutive years we’ve been renting this house. The situation is unbeatable, the same as the house itself (special mention to the enormous terrace, the amazing sea view from the balconies and almost all the bedrooms, and also to the comfortable living room) and the peaceful atmosphere that has allowed us to make the most of our holidays and find the relaxing time we had been looking for. The easiness for booking and for solving any problem related to the duration of our staying, the cleaning and other facts such as the inclusion of additional beds is definitely another important factor that has made us choose this villa the last 4 years (and some more in the future, we hope). Due to all these things, we sincerely recommend this house to people looking for spending a relaxing vacation time and enjoying a beautiful and lively small town as Almuñecar at the same time.
The villa is in a stunning location and initially would have been as described , however , due to lack of investment the villa is in great need of refurbishment even to the point of numerous light bulbs require replacing.
The first impression was not good with dead flowerbeds and very rusty gates. The villa had been repainted but paint was peeling off doors and shutters and gates hadn't been painted giving an uncared for impression.
The kitchen was very small and most unpleasant . It contained
Fowl smelling drawers
Ant infested cupboards
Water damaged units
The bedrooms were not clean, one smelt badly of cats, all except one had ants (some nights in the bed)
The bathrooms were again in need of attention with rusty baths and water damaged units.
The balcony/terrace/patio had dangerously damaged old furniture and exposed electrics. Not very relaxing with young children.
The walk to the seafront ,shops and restaurants was via a very steep hill and only really for fit people.
The shared pool was very good but had no sun beds or shades.
Overall I felt cheated due to the run down state of Villa Mimosa. I have never yet in 45 years of travel stayed in a place as bad as this and certainly would not recommend this to anyone.
