About the property

Villa| Calahonda |Costa del Sol | Mijas | Spain | Peaceful Location | 5 Min Walk to all Amenities.

Homely and quaint, Luz Villa offers spacious, flexible accommodation. Ideal for a large family to spread out and use the whole villa or alternatively it is laid out in such a way that 2 small families can share, with the only shared facility needing to be the kitchen and the pool.

On the ground floor there are 2 double bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, terrace. The lower ground floor has a double bedroom with double doors onto a small terrace by the pool, sun lounge and bathroom. The hallway leads to the garage, through a lockable door.

Long summer days can be spent chilling by the pool, exploring the amazing golden coastline and venturing up into the stunning Andalucian mountains.

You can also enjoy Autumn/Winter days in the mild temperatures by exploring the mountains, coast and pretty Spanish villages and come the evening curled up in front of the woodburner, we like to crack open a bottle of red and enjoy some great family time together. ****Please note that the sun doesn’t get into the garden until late morning in autumn/ winter****

Our local housekeepers are two English ladies and are always on hand should you need anything.

Airport transfers can be arranged.


It is now a legal requirement for us to hold copies of ALL guest’s passports for the duration of your stay. We must have received email/scan or photos of these 21 days before travel. Should we not receive copies and guests are stopped by the Spanish Police or if we are investigated by the authorities we would have no option but to forward the local fines on.

About Karen Wilson

Hi I'm Karen from Holiday Cafe, I am extremely privileged to own our house on Rhodes and help friends run and market several other properties 'Villa Petra' & 'Luz Villa'.

My family & I visit all the properties regularly and can assure you they're all fantastic!.

Appreciating how hard we all work in order to enjoy annual holidays in the sunshine I make it my mission to ensure the whole process is as easy as it can be and promise I'm always at the end of an email / phone.

So if you're wanting an easy, enjoyable experience with guidance from someone who loves all things Mediterranean look no further. Contact me today for more information.

Why Karen Wilson chose Mijas

The area is peaceful yet everything you need is within walking distance, including a good choice of restaurants, both Spanish and international. Great sandy beaches, bars, cafes and a supermarket.

There are some truly great places to visit which can be accessed by car or public transport such as Marbella, Puerto Banus, City of Malaga, Mijas Pueblo , Seville, Granada and many more.

If its excitement and action your wanting then why not try Go-Karting, quad biking or four wheel drive trailing. All are available close by.

The Costa Del Sol is of course famous for it's amazing golf courses and there are plenty to choose from within a very short distance of the villa.

Villa Luz has everything you could possibly need and really is like a 'home from home'

What makes this villa unique

I have special offers and discounts available for winter let, under occupancy and long term lets. Please get in touch for more options and information

There are several great things about hiring a private villa

No opening & closing times on the swimming pool

No fighting for sun loungers

Eat & drink what you want when you want

Go to bed as early or as late as you like (the area is so peaceful you won't be disturbed!)

Be up at the crack of dawn or sleep til lunchtime if you choose.

Don't fancy dressing for dinner, no problem stay in your swimwear & BBQ

Explore the area & soak up local culture

Flexibility with arrival & departure times

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your villa with us. It was an ideal getaway for me and my friends. Lazy mornings by the pool with coffee and strolls around the local shops and beaches was just what the doctor ordered for us busy mums. Thank you Steve & Chris we will hopefully be making this an annual thing.

Claire Bowen & friends

Had a week there with 3 golfing mates. Villa was ideally located and a reasonable rate. We were able to drive to the 4 courses we played in less than 30 minutes. There's a bar 5 mins walk from the villa before getting a cab to Fuengirola, Puerto Banus or Cabopino. The pool/ garden was great for relaxing. Am planning to book again this year.

Chris Hicks

Wow - what a week. Just what the doctor ordered. When we arrived at La Luz we had expectations, but the villa certainly exceeded them. It was clean and welcoming and the surrounding area is stunning. Thank you - we will definitely be visiting again.

Home from home with sun and a great pool.

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Villa Luz in August. There was 4 adults and 2 children. The house is perfect for this kind of group as the bottom half has a bedroom and bathroom and the main living area have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom.

The house is great. Clean, spacious and has everything you could need.. including tea bags ,coffee which was great as we were on a late flight. The pool is fantastic and completely private. Great blow up rings and lilos. The house is great . Can't be faulted and the area was nice and quiet. Theresa was lovely and was very accommodating which was really appreciated. The area itself is fairly quiet . There are bars and restaurants however if you have small kids it's not that easy to just hop on a bus to go to the bigger towns, there is a 10 min walk and then up a flyover and down another small walk to the bus stop which is tough in the heat with a buggy and small kids. We got taxis which ended up being very expensive and if you are travelling in a group of 6 or more it's very hard to get a six seater taxis as only two are available in the area. So we had to pay double as we had to get two taxis for each trip. Maybe we just were not organised well enough. That aside we had a ball. The kids loved the pool and the house and for us the house made our holiday. Karen has been so professional and friendly answering all our questions. She put us at ease from the start and I would deal with Karen again without hesitation . Thank you for the use of a great house we had a great time.

Lovely property with a great pool in a quiet location. Within walking distance to shops/beach/bars

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Villa Luz-the villa and pool were both great. Walking distance to local supermarket and within easy reach to the beach and boardwalk. The Villa recommended Alex their driver for airport pick up, he was great-even took us to get our shopping as he had spare time! Teresa who also helps run the property was lovely too!

Would recommend and stay again!

Fabulous family holiday at Villa Luz Calahonda

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by Teresa who gave us an informative tour around the villa and information about the local area - shops, restaurants, beaches etc. The villa was clean and very well equipped, and a perfect layout for our family - the lower floor bedroom with patio doors to the pool, large bathroom and lounge ideal for ourselves (grandparents) and two bedrooms and bathroom, kitchen and main lounger/ dining areas on the ground floor - ideal for our son, daughter in law and two granddaughters. The weather was perfect during our stay and many days were based around the villa and pool. The garden is completely private with high hedges offering a mixture of shade and sun throughout the day.

A car is not essential for this villa and we had trips to Marbella, Mijas, Benalmedia using local buses, only using our car for local beaches. A local Supersol is just five minutes walk and there are many bars and restaurants within a 10-15 minutes walk.

Overall an excellent holiday and we would definitely hire this villa again when next holidaying in this area.

Lovely property, nice quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great vacation here. The three bedrooms are all really nice and spacious and the downstairs section gave a much needed escape for Mum from time to time. The pool garden area was great and the house really well equipped.

The area is fairly quiet which we prefer but plenty of amenities in walking distance including the very good supermarket cafe. Other areas are all really close if you have a car - we went to Marbellla, Mijas beach, Fuengirola beach to name a few in our one week stay.

Very nice home and location.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here for 6 nights with my Grandma and Aunt while visiting the area for a wedding. The house was very nice in a quiet neighborhood. Great proximity to a grocery store and delicious local cafeteria, as well as the beach and very nice golf courses. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

The nearest beach is a pleasant 10 minute walk from the house. There are beaches all along along the coast road with La cala and Cabopino just 5 minutes by car and Puerto Benus and Marbella approximately 20 minutes by car. All are sandy with sun loungers, cafes, bars and some have watersports available.


Malaga airport is a 20 - 30 minute drive along the main coast road. Car hire is not essential as there is plenty to do on your doorstep, however the Costa Del Sol is well worth exploring. Public transport is easy to use and frequent.

Malaga Airport has numerous car hire companies to choose from or you can arrange online prior to your arrival.


The villa is situated in the heart of Calahonda.

La Cala : approx 3 miles

Cabopino: approx 5 miles

Puerto Banus: approx 20 miles

Further Details:

Whilst the Costa Del Sol is well known for it's golf there are numerous other activites that take place in the area. Why not enjoy a game of tennis or hire a mountain bike and head off road into the hills.

The house is within walking distance of a large supermarket, bank machines, a variety of bars and restaurants and the beach. Also within walking distance is the local car boot/flea market that appears most weekends.

Within driving distance are numerous wonderful villages, towns and tourist attractions. There's the Dolphin show at Benalmadena as well as the wonderful port where you can sit and watch the boats coming in and out or why not head down to Cabopino where there is a large sandy beach with plenty of watersports, great restaurants and a marina.

Close by there are two waterparks to choose from and both are great for all the family.

If you fancy heading into the mountains then you'll be spoilt for choice with the wonderful little villages you can find. Mijas Pueblo is an unspoilt traditional village perfect for exploring then sitting back with a coffee and watching the world go by.
