Notes on accommodation

Linen/towels & cleaning of the Villa


All bed linen and towels are provided (normally one bath towel and one hand towel per person), but you will need to bring your own beach towels. A weekly change of linen will be provided & if you prefer we could leave the fresh linen with you,

We will also need to service the swimming pool & Gardens; this may be more than once during your stay in order to water garden plants & maintain pool hygiene, (however you will be informed of this if needed).

We will never arrive at the Villa unannounced or without notifying you first. We aim to provide both services on the same day and at the same time and will arrange with you when it is convenient; our time spent at the Villa is kept to a minimum (usually less than 1hr) we want to respect your privacy during your stay at the Villa. We can either service the Villa when you are out or while you are at the villa which ever you prefer, this will be carried out by (us the owners only) who will be here to greet you with the keys to Villa Amarilla on your arrival!


The villa may not be suitable for the very elderly/infirm as there are several stairs around the property (stairs are gated at the bottom & can be locked), if bringing young children, parental supervision is always recommended e.g. when there is a pool, stairs or walled area etc. We do have several prickly plants around the gardens and if touched can cause skin irritation, so again if you have children supervision is recommended. (See terms & Conditions)



Swimming Pool


The pool here at the Villa is not heated but can be used from April to the end of October The size of the pool is 10m x 5m approx and has inset lighting for those warm evenings when you can’t resist taking a dip (It’s like bath water between July & September).  The depths of the pool are painted on large stones which are located by the poolside. The shallow end is (1.2 m deep approx) with walk in steps and the deepest end is (1.9m deep approx) with metal steps.


We always advise that no child of any age is ever left unattended, without adult supervision at any time by the pool area.

We have safety information at the Villa

Garden areas


The drive is privately gated and has been landscaped to give a Mediterranean look and feel we’ve planted it with palms, lavender, grape vines, and lots more. In the gardens below we have 2 Lemon trees, a few Almond trees, Manderine, Grape vines, Aloe Vera, different varieties of Cactus, lots of sweet Honeysuckles, Jasmine, Bougainvillea, lots of ground covering plants & lavender.

We have 3 large shaded terraces one of which is the gazebo area with fantastic panoramic views and are linked to the newly built BQ area!


We also have Spanish Chino stoned areas & white washed walls that have rustic Mediterranean pots inserted with lovely flowers over hanging leading under the bridged walkway entrance to the villa. Both areas lead to the barbecue area where we are sure you are to spend a few nights of your holiday barbecuing some marinated fresh Meats & Fish with a chilled glass of wine.


The Spanish supermarkets sell fantastic Meat, Chicken, Beefsteaks, and Racks of ribs and a lot more, fantastic on the barbecue. You can buy charcoal from the local supermarket in Comares.  The fish here is very good especially the prawns you can buy 1 kilo of tiger prawns feeds 4-5 people for as little as 6 Euros (just under £4) you can ask to have it cleaned for you.


Located in Torre del Mar is an English run shop named EASTENDERS, they sell English sausages/Burgers/Chips/pork pies/Gammon steaks etc as well as English sauces/cereals/stock cubes/sweets/cakes/crisps most things that you might miss! But to save money you could bring your own as they are more expensive than at home bring squeeze plastic bottles not glass.  




There is plenty of lighting in side of the villa and out side too! We have inserted pool lights as well as other lighting situated around the pool, with additional lighting on the terrace above and under the arched terrace below as well as to the sides of the Villa & BQ area.


The lights located along the drive way can be turned on at night if you are venturing out.


We also have extra lighting out side in the planted areas of the gardens these are cane garden lights that can be used then topped up with special oil so you can enjoy a little ambiance of an evening whilst dinning with loved ones, friends or family, (extra oil can be brought from a shop called LA CASA in the multiplex shopping centre El INGENIO only 35 min drive approx from the Villa).


There is ample room for everyone in the gardens of the villa especially if you are coming to stay with family or friends you can all have some privacy of your own where you can relax.

General Information


Rubbish & hygiene


We do ask, and is very much appreciated if you leave the property clean and tidy at the end of your stay, with dishes washed and rubbish cleared (rubbish must never be left for hygiene reasons) for one it will attract rodents, Cats, Flies, Ants etc and did you know that rat urine attracts Snakes! Yes I did say Snakes, I can say honestly because we have always kept everything clean and tidy and free from rubbish the most we have had to deal with is ants, flies & wasps (we have learnt from pass mistakes), I would also advise that you must cover all food, it’s best not to leave anything uncovered or left over food & drink outside in the garden. This is especially important in the summer months. The Villa will be cleaned after you leave and if found to be in a dirty state extra cleaning charges may be deducted from your DS/Deposit, I have never had to do this due to the respect of guests.


Telephone Facilities


Villa Amarilla doesn't have a telephone. Mobile phone cover at the Villa is generally good but varies locally, depending on the terrain; you will find information on telephoning to and from Spain in our welcome folder. Don’t forget to set your mobile phones to roaming before entering Spain!


Ancillary services


If there is an Emergency during your stay at the Villa, please contact us the Owners and will do our very best in trying to help. You will find all our contact numbers in the welcome folder at the Villa.


Privacy & Noise


The Villa enjoys a rural location so any noise will not be a problem, our Spanish neighbours are really pleasant people but do not overlook or encroach on your privacy, we always have a few BQ’s and party nights at the Villa with family or friends when we are here so please relax and enjoy yourselves. At fiesta time you may hear some Music in the distance, celebration fireworks will be let off. This is the norm throughout Spanish pueblos. But the most you are lightly to hear are the sweet tinkering bells from the goats being herded in the distance




Villa Amarilla is a non-smoking villa, of course you are permitted to smoke in the grounds of the villa we provide sand ashtrays in areas around the villa for anyone wishing to smoke this is to ensure that all of our guests have a comfortable stay in side of the villa and that all of the rooms are free from odours.


Extra charges


We do not charge any extra for Air conditioning, cots, highchairs, electric, heating, gas (logs for the wood burner provided during cooler months) these are provided free of charge. The price you are quoted for the holiday Villa rental is the total cost. There are no hidden extras.


Security booking deposit


We do ask that you pay a 30% security deposit at the time of booking and that the total amount of your Villa rental including the damage security deposit is paid 6 weeks before your arrival. (A reminder will be emailed to you 1 week before the due date) Book now to avoid disappointment, and to take advantage of the cheap flights offered by discount airlines.


Arrival & Departure


Guest’s arrival commences at 4pm and ends at 11am on day of departure. This is to ensure that we have sufficient time to prepare the Villa for our next guests. We therefore recommend that you book your travel to fit in with these timings. There is, of course, more flexibility with early or late season bookings or if we do not have a change over you. This could also include extra days etc.


Season dates


Our Villa is available for holiday lets from Jan until December. Early and late season can be a little chilly, especially of an evening; we recommend warmer clothing for these dates. We have heaters in the bedrooms and extra blankets as well as a log burning fire in the lounge (logs supplied free during the colder months), the air conditioning is hot and cold so can provide extra heating if necessary, the climate here is coldest usually from Jan - early March although can not be guaranteed.
