Hi Liz,
We had a fabulous stay in Villa Tropical, which had everything you could possibly want from a holiday rental. The accommodation was of a very high standard, clean and comfortable with lots of small touches that made the stay more special (including the welcome pack and wine!) - the booking process was very smooth and our arrival was also well managed, with Rachel at Costa Tropical escorting us to the villa and spending lots of time showing us all its features. The outside space is exceptional - we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner out on the balcony soaking up the wonderful panoramic views of the bay. The villa - and its warm and inviting pool - became a home from home very quickly and we were very reluctant to leave at the end of our stay! We love La Herradura (a relaxed, authentically Spanish village with great food, bars and beach) and will definitely be back.

Liz, just a short note to say thank you for your use of your villa. The villa
was great,
very confortable and well equipped. 
The view from the terrace was outstanding and we were fortunate enough to see a magnificent electrical storm one night. Our fitness levels also increased walking up and down the steps. Local restaurants were good and we particularly like the Moroccan restaurant near the church.

Thanks again
Gillian from Scotland.

Hi Liz,
Just thought I would let you know that we had a great time in the villa.

Hello Liz & Keith,
Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely villa last week and thank you for my birthday card and bubbly - it was really appreciated. The villa was so clean and comfortable, so please also pass on our thanks to Alan & Sue (we were particularly struck by how clean all the windows were!) In the meantime Best regards

Hi Liz
We have just come back from your wonderful wonderful villa!!! David & I had an absolutely fabulous 10 days at the villa. It has everything we could possibly have wanted. Also there was something everyday that we had not noticed before. We have had the best weather we have ever had in Spain in October (we have previously stayed in Nerja) Every day apart from yesterday has been very hot so we have used the pool every day.  A sea fog came in yesterday. We hope to go back to your villa next October.
Mucho Gracias
- Elaine & David Newland xx

For the use of your fantastic villa. 4 days back already, and we're already contemplating booking next year. On arrival, we were all blown away by everything your property had to offer us all. We had an early scare with us having a different number on the safe - with everything locked in, but your lovely mates Alan & Sue soon sorted us out.With the aid of your 'guide', we took in most of the great choice of bars/tapas, the food in particular was excellent. We all had our favourites. We took in the 'special paella' on the beach on Sunday afternoon and then took in the World Cup Final Sunday evening at a local bar - great celebrations. Later in the week, I even managed 2 great early morning bike rides up the coast - so again thanks for the use of all equipment (BBQ was great also -Market fresh fish / food was great value for money - and again excellent produce.
Finally, on our last night (Friday), we felt honoured to be present for the 'Virgin del Carmen' festival, it really finished off the holiday with a bang - especially with the amazing firework display finale - and concert in the main square. There's been so many highlights that I'm beginning to get even more depressed with the Manchester rain!! Thanks again. I'm sure we'll be in touch very soon.

Hi Liz.
Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for letting us stay in your lovely villa for my 60th Birthday. We had a wonderful week, and when we were at the villa, we spent most of the time up on the roof terrace. Howard and I loved Herradura and to stay in the old part of the village was a bonus and to sample a little bit of 'real Spain' was a real treat. Thank you once again. Sue

Hi Liz
Just back from your villa. What a lovely house you have, I am green with envy. Thank you so much for letting me stay there. Visited Cerro Gordo, Nerja town, Aquavelis at Torre del Mar, the caves and beach at Maro plus several visits to Herradura beach. One problem - we only had one week, big mistake, it should have been two. Regards, Dave

Hi Liz and Keith,
We are home safe and sound after a wonderful week at your fabulous villa, trust me, we were dragging our feet all the way home :)  Villa Tropical was our little slice of heaven on earth, we can see why you love it so much.  Our family had the best time and can't say enough about the warm Spanish weather and friendly people, so fun.  We enjoyed all the amenities of your wonderful home, it was so nice to have the pool and the party room to play cards and hang out with the teenagers (which is a rare treat).  And the views were absolutely memorable, just amazing!  We couldn't have asked for a better family vacation before heading home to the "States".

Thanks again and all the best--

Hi Liz,
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the stay in Villa Tropical. Everything was perfect, in fact. The house was lovely, spacious and full of light -and the location was superb. It was in walking distance to everything - one really does not need a car for this house. Just a few minutes down to the internet cafe on the Plaza, and a few more minutes for shopping in the food hall. I worked in the morning and afternoon and relaxed on the terrace during the middle of the day. The kitchen table was very good for working, including good lighting and an electric socket nearby for the computer. A super house, so well kept and clean. I felt really privileged staying in a house which was so personal - you must love this place!

Dear Liz + Keith
A belated Happy New Year to you and a big thank you for letting us stay in Villa Tropical! We had a phantastic time with mostly sunny weather, and liked La Herradura and the neighbouring towns and villages a lot. (We can recommend Otivar, which is a little bit of the beaten track, on a small road that leads from Almunecar towards Granada. There is a restaurant with absolutely fabulous food)Villa Tropical feels very personal and welcoming, and provided us with the right environment for a family holiday. Everything was in perfect working order, and after having eaten out the first couple of days we started cooking our own dinner a bit more often. Because temperatures dropped quite quickly after sunset we moved the large glass table inside and spent long evenings upstairs eating, chatting, and listening to music. We actually watched TV only once for the news. I am sure the memories from this holiday will stay a long time with us.
Best wishes - Robert + Andrea
