About this listing
This is a lovely double room within a large house situated within a complex next to a golf course.
Plenty of space , large garden with space to sit out to eat, sunbathe or just be. Communal swimming pool. Private garage. Cycling lane all the way to town - or 10 minute drive to town and beaches.
We have two lovely dogs - they have their own space in the garden , but take care - they are very affectionate - we are sure you will love them!
We are situated behind Fuengirola on one side, and La Cala de Mijas the other way - both within a 10 min drive - with beaches, restaurants, shops and all the other infrastructure. Within a walk, there are some small shops, some outdoor eating places and a few of the best 'Venta's' (Spanish traditional roadside restaurants, but with a twist) - they are now full on Restaurants,a nd although still quite economical, no longer just a menu of the day can be found - the food is very good.
On the subject of food, I love to cook - and I pride myself on cooking great healthy world cuisine - especially Asian and Spanish, so do not hesitate to ask.
Plenty of good books to read and films to watch - although I recommend you go out and see the sights - or spend the time outdoors - we have a lovely big garden where you can eat out or lounge on the double futon mattresses under the shade of the trees.
There are lots of birds - and the communal gardens are like a tropical Island!
Please do not take the house towels out of the house - we have plenty of beach towels for pool and beach use - just ask!!
If you are out late, please respect us and the neighbours when you come in!!
Please read our books, but if you haven't finished one, speak to us about taking it or not when you leave - the chances are we wont mind - but it is very sad when people just help themselves.
Share your thoughts - and criticism with me - I prefer to know so I can improve whatever it is .
We had a really lovely stay at Belindas and Simons place. The home is really lovely, and the hosts incredibly accomodating. Five out of five ice creams for sure!
This was our first stay with airbnb. Simon & Belinda were very friendly and helpful. It was lovely home with a lot of character, we especially loved the garden area. Shame we could not spend more time relaxing there. Hope we can go back some time for a longer stay.
we spent a marvelous time at Belinda's even though we didn't see her!!! but her husband Simon has been fanstatic with us and our little boy loved it there!!! we recommand highly this appartment for cool and relax holydays in a nice place with lovely people, thank you again for everything, see you in Sri Lanka maybe!!!! Sarah, Thomas and Theodore.
Hiya!!! Simon thinks you are amazing!!! he really enjoyed having you to stay - shame I missed you by just a few days - maybe next time, Or visit me in Sri Lanka!! I have some interesting animals over there!!! monkeys in the trees ... I 'm sure Theodore will love it there!
Well what can I say, our stay was very fabulous. After 5 days in Madrid we came to Belinda's friendly, busy but very comfortable home. I am travelling with my 11 year old daughter and she also made friends in the complex..... We paid a little extra for a fabulous vegeterian feast once a day... As vegeterian's this household was very accommodating and they went on a week long vegeterian experience with us. It was seriously great Vego feasting, swims in the pool, fabulous chats with with interesting and inspiring people.... We will definitely be back.... The week was exactly what we needed to get into the relaxed state of our holiday.... But could easily have stayed a month.... Belinda and Simon are fabulous hosts.... The family and friends that I met where all fabulous... It truly made it such a memorable stay.... I recommend this highly... Many thanks for your open home and fabulous hospitality.

About the Host, Belinda
Having had a very busy life - now starting to call down a bit..... sort of.
I have four grown up kids who have taken over my life for a long time - and I have been running a busy production company in Spain for many years.
My favourite pass-times are traveling and food. When at my place you will eat well, for sure.
I want to make it special when you come and stay - I appreciate constructive criticism .
I love quirky people - love sudden spurts of madness and letting my hair down, but am quite calm and responsible most of the time . If there is a live concert it will take me out and i will probably be the last one home, but otherwise I don't go out much.
I am one to mix in with the locals and love the local food and markets - will spend hours chatting and finding out more - I help a charity in Hikkaduwa called Manacare - they do great things - I just give them my love and help a little if i can.
I love to read - real life experiences - travel books - all about Asia.
I am a bit of an artist and love all form of art - from photography, to painting , though fabric design and interior design and recently have been making 'mandalas' which I find very therapeutic.
My motto: smile and be happy and dont interfere in how others lead their lives - we are all different!
