Interaction with Guests
My guests are free to contact me whenever they fell the need to, I am available to them 24 hours. Any questions, or doubts I will be there to help them. On arrival I will drop by the house to explain anything they need or want to know and to greet them, of course :) .
I really like my neighbourhood because it is a relaxing area, not too close or too far from anything.. If you like peace, you have it, if you want noise, you can find it easily close by.. I love the fact that the beach is right in front, the supermarkets are close and restaurants if I don´t feel like cooking!!
I use a car but in case you don´t have one, the train station is only a 8 mins walk and the bus station even closer.. about 2.. The airport in 15 kms.
Other Things to Note
This is a family house, nice and quiet.. please respect that. :)
I am not keen on big parties and loud music as I do like to respect my neighbours, it´s fine to have a small intimate party but always respecting the rest.
From Jun 15 - Sep 15, 2015 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
We stayed with our family of 5 persons in the Benalmadena house Casa Curva. We enjoyed our stay a lot. We arrived without any troubles in a clean, tidy and cosy home with nice inner and front gardens and a terrace. The beds were clean, comfortable and there was lots of space for all of us. We enjoyed our evenings in the front garden. The house is near to nice beaches and any kind of restaurant, bar or shopping centre.
Vietettiin kuukausi isommalla porukalla Carinan talossa. Peruskokoonpanomme oli 3 aikuista ja 3 alle 5 vuotiasta lasta. Kaksikerroksiseen taloon mahtui hyvin useampikin perhe (Saimme vaihtuvia vieraita) samaan aikaan kolmen erillisen makuuhuoneen ja kahden wc:n ansiosta. Talo on lapsiperheitä silmälläpitäen erinomaisesti varustettu (Pinnasänky, matkasänky, syöttötuoli, kylpyamme, paljon leluja ynm). Kattoterassi oli mahtava ja keittiö erinomaisesti varusteltu. Sijainti oli juuri oikeanlainen sopivan matkan päässä juna-asemalta (Torremuelle) sekä useammastakin rannasta (Hotel Playabonitan ranta paras - n.200 metriä talolta). Läheltä löytyi lisäksi kaksi pikkukauppaa sekä kolme ravintolaa joissa tarjoiltiin erinomaista paellaa sekä tapaksia.
Kommunikointi Carinan kanssa pelasi sujuvasti sekä puhelimen että internetin kautta (talossa wi-fi). Muutenkin hän vastasi ja auttoi aina tarvittaessa nopeasti mikäli kysymyksiä ilmeni.
Omaa rauhaa arvostaville ja Fuengirolan yltiöturismia pakoon haluaville talo on ehdottomasti suositeltava vaihtoehto.
We had a very nice holiday at Carina's house. We stayed 3 weeks, the first week with an other family so the house was filled with 4 adults and 4 children from the age 4 and downwards. It is easy to stay with kids, baby cot, high chair and toys available, fenced outdoor terrace and well equipped kitchen including washing machine. And two big bathrooms.
5 min walk to a family friendly beach, and restaurants, bar and supermarkets in the same route. The house is old, but nicely renovated. No air condition, but at least in September it was easy to keep the inside cool during day, and ventilate through windows at night. The street Brujula is a dead end, but easy parking in the street. The house is close to the busy trafic in Carretera Cádiz, so smaller kids can not walk outside the terrace alone. The house lies close to an partly dry stream, with shrubbery and staws, so we didn't feel like living close to other tourists. But the area is popular for walking dogs, and when the stream is dry, the floodgate is an OK passage to the sea. Not with strollers though..
We had a rental car the whole period, and visited some great parts of Andalucia - Malaga, Ronda, Mijas, Gibraltar etc. All towns and cities we visited had easy to find public parking - so travel by car is easy!
Carina is easy to communicate with, and helped us with tips on where to go, restaurants and shops. Thanks!
I want to thank Carina for hospitality. She is a gracious host and gave us many great suggestions on places to visit, restaurants, history of the local area, and insider tips that made our stay that much better. The villa was the same as in the pictures, very cozy and nice. The villa is self contained and had everything we needed for our stay Short walk to shops and restaurants and a beautiful seafront.
Nice villa, beautiful and very friendly owner! My family enjoyed staying here! Highest recommendations!
HOUSE VERY BEAUTIFUL. photos of the house can't show beauty of an interior completely. Details of an interior are picked up with taste. The kitchen is equipped with modern equipment: there is a toaster, a blender and even a juice extractor.
Each bedroom has own style. Each of us easily decided on a bedroom choice: the bedrooms for parents, for teenager, the nursery in which there were many children's toys and books.
Patio was pleasant to us in which it is very good to have dinner during a heat, and in the evening comfortably to talk with a glass of good wine. It is possible to have a good time in the living room listening music, playing on the piano, relaxing in the comfortable sofa.
Very good location - a beach across the road, the British supermarket of 3 minutes on foot, there are couple small shops with walking distance, near some bars and nice restaurant near Torre Muelle :-) On a tren it is possible to reach to near cities, the airport, Malaga etc.
On the car probably it is more comfortable, but we didn't rent a car and went by public transport that it is very comfortable too in Spain.
We brought with ourselves the best impressions. It is difficult to write about all. With pleasure we recommend this house for rest.
And "Los muchas gracias" of Carina for fine hollidays!
The house was perfect, it was 1 min. walk to the beach.
The house is nice and well equipped. The bathrooms are very nice, also the new kitchen is nice and very well equipped. We were pleased with unexpected things - the ventilators in the bedrooms, grill, beach umbrellas, tea, coffee, milk and sugar in the kitchen. We had enough privacy and space in the house, even if we were 9, all together. The children were happy in the child bedroom.
On the beach is a nice, friendly and cheap Restaurant Bar Playa Torremuelle. The supermarket is about 3 min. walk and train station of the Renfe is 8 min. walk. It was also easy to park the rented cars in front of the house (we can recommend good and cheap Vals Rent A Car). It is easy to get to Torremolinos and Malaga within few minutes. The Gibraltar, Granada and Ronda were about 1,5 hour drive from the house.
The beds were comfortable, and also it was nice cool temperature inside the house even if it was outside 31°C and more. The house seems to be very safe, and the neighborhood is quiet and very nice. We can only highly recommend this place.
Great house, with a lot of space and good facilities. There was no wifi during our stay, but the host is going to arrange that. The house is far away from the big hotel buildings of the costa. A small beach in 5 minutes and 3 simple places to have dinner. You do need a car at this location. There is a big road passing at 50 meters which causes quite some noise, so having dinner outside is not so relaxed.... After a while you get used to it.
About the Host, Carina Nicole
Hi. I am a single mum, born in Spain, australian parents. Lived in Spain most of my life. I went to school in Australia when I was 6 and then came back to Spain. Then went to english and spanish schools. Worked in Lima, London, Paris and Spain. I love traveling, adore Asia, specially the food.. would love to go back some day soon. At the moment I am working in my second hand book shop in Torremolinos and bringing up my 6 year old daugher. At the same time I am renting out my house and am enjoying it as I get to meet many people from all over the world.
I recommend this house because it is in a really nice position. The house is nice and comfortable and in summer it is specially nice because of the indoor temperatures. Big thick walls. :)Calle de la Brújula Benalmádena AL 29630
