A few reviews and thoughts about Casa Beni from people who have stayed there.
Our stay at Casa Beni was the most wonderful two week vacation we’ve had in 27 years of marriage – beautiful, beautiful villa – just perfect. It was all that was advertised, even more. We so enjoyed exploring the village a short walk away. In addition to letter perfect directions on finding the villa, the owner also sent us helpful information on restaurants and beaches. The local contacts provided, Sonia and Ian, were great! So helpful in suggesting adventures! Bahia de Tanit beach was fantastic. Went on the ferry to Tangiers – incredible. We’ll never forget our time here.

Casa Beni is a really lovely house. It is spacious, comfortable, clean and decorated with attractive ethnic touches. The view is tremendous and we never tired of it. The pool is fabulous – a good size and very clean and well looked after. We are a family with teenagers and a seven-year old and the children all loved the pool and the table-tennis table was a great bonus. There are lots of DVD’s to watch when the sun gets too hot. We really enjoyed the village – we were not expecting to find somewhere so unspoiled by tourism. It sits on the mountain-side up a long winding road. The villagers were really friendly and the restaurants were absolutely superb. There are lots of narrow streets, freshly painted white houses and flowers.
Angie is incredibly helpful and has thought of everything, and the couple who look after the villa do a great job and spent a long time answering our questions and giving us helpful information about the area.
We would thoroughly recommend the villa to anyone who wants to see the real Spain in very comfortable and beautiful surroundings.

Perched high on the mountain, the house and the view are gorgeous and the sunsets amazing. The village is very pretty and unspoiled.
Best decorated and equipped house of many we have rented. The owner’s sister lives 5 minutes away and is always available fo help find things around the house and is the perfect “tourist guide”.
No surprises. What you view on the internet site and what the owner tells you is exactly what you get!
Highly recommended. We definitely would rent again!

Even though the internet pages of Casa Beni promises a lot, we came to a house which went far beyond our expectations. And the village and surroundings offered perfect possibilities to relax somewhat off from the most touristic areas.
My wife and myself together with our four grown up children had a wonderful week at Casa Beni. We enjoyed the village and the Sierra Tejada National Park (some of us walked all the way to the highest top La Maroma). And after such excursions we always came back home to the wonderful and comfortable Casa Beni.
With the car all the nearby tourist centres close to the sea are easily reached.
Just sitting at the terrace and enjoy the lovely view and the silence was really wonderful.

Where to start, the villa is just fabulous obviously put together with a lot of love and style, with comfort a top priority. Loads of space and absolutely every thing you need is there. Waking up each morning with the blue blue skies, looking out at the amazing views, what a way to start the day.
There were five of us ranging from 17 to 46 and we all had a lot of fun in the pool and with the ping pong table and basket ball hoop. We only had a week, so we really made the most of our time at the villa and had a very lazy week. The village and the restaurants were a delight and the caves at Nerja are a must see. Thank you Angie for all your suggestions, we didn’t manage them all so I am afraid we will just have to go back.
I would recommend a holiday at Casa Beni to anyone.

We spent a week at Casa Beni in October 2010. The weather was glorious and the views are outstanding from the terrace- all the way to the Mediteranean. We especially enjoyed the white pueblos in the distance, their lights at night and the wonderful sunsets. Angie was great to work with and helped make our stay memorable. She has a book loaded with information about the surrounding areas. The house is well equipped and perfect for 6 people, each with private bath. I hiked far up the mountain, and we also walked to the village several times. We were in Europe for 5 weeks and this was the first time we were able to catch up on the news on English TV. Every night driving home, we watched for the goats on the road- a real treat. Be prepared for a steep climb by car!

My family and I spent two wonderful weeks at Casa Beni which if I may use a phrase from a well known advert: “It does everything it says on the tin”. The decor and attention to detail of the furnishings are a credit to the owner. Outside the views from the terrace are a delight, with the added bonus of the pool. The villagers are very warming to visitors and the food in the local restaurants especially the local dishes must be tried, none of your costal tourist food but meaty stews, roasted goat, rabbit, are all worth the short walk into the village. The Sociadad and the Bodega stand out.
The house keeper Sonia is a lovely woman and was at hand if we needed anything and, knows anything there is to know about the area around the village, a real gem. The only down point was leaving this wonderful place.
I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Casa Beni, I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.

We’ve stayed in many villas thoughout Europe and Casa Beni was, by far, the best equipped one. It really made us feel at home, we loved it and really hope to come again sometime soon.

What can I tell you that is not shown in the photos or written in the description of Casi Beni, without using all the superlatives in the dictionary ! It is a beautiful villa, in a wonderful position, with upbelievable views. Then you enter the villa and you find that inside nothing has been forgotten and so much thought has been put into providing everything that one might need, and of the highest quality. The kitchen made cooking a delight, and it was almost difficult to drag ourselves into the village to eat, but we did, and the restaurants were excellent.
The beds were comfy and so were the pillows ( so many rental properties stick any old pillow on the bed without a thought as to whether it is comfortable or not) not at Casi Beni – Angie has only provided the ‘best’ !
We loved the village and took a few walks around and about when we weren’t lazing in and around the lovely swimming pool. Who would want to leave this paradise when you have all that you could desire at your finger tips?
Conclude by saying that a week is definitely not long enough at Casi Beni!!
Jane from Thailand
My family and I stayed in this beautiful villa and were very happy in every way! Having never been to Spain before we were completely overcome by this villa, with its position in the village, its panoramic views and wonderful comfort in every room. The owner has paid attention to every detail making the kitchen a joyous place to be, all the bedrooms a delight to be in, and the patio a glorious sunbathing heaven. There are fabulous real Spanish places to eat and gorgeous walks straight from the house but if one can drag oneself away there are expeditions by car that could keep everyone occupied for months.

Casa Beni –
What a wonderful time we had
In Casa Beni, your wonderful pad
Table tennis and swims in the pool
And delicious tomato salads that made us drool
La Sociedad has served us well
And so many happy memories one cannot tell!
Reading our books and relaxing in the sun
And games in the evening – oh what fun.
