Villa Karina is a stunning and valued addition to our Andalucian collection. Set high in the Punta Lara hills, its elevated position means the villa is accessed by a steep track road where the views across the surrounding countryside and the coastal town of Nerja are second to none. Inside the huge open plan lounge and dining room is tastefully furnished with neutral colours and the added benefit of air conditioning. Upstairs a mezzanine hallway overlooks the lounge and leads to two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom. Patio doors open up on to the covered terrace, pool and barbecue area, providing the perfect place to relax and enjoy some of the best views in the region. Nearby Nerja is just fifteen minutes away by car and is home to some great shopping, restaurants and atmospheric tapas bars whilst the beaches at Torrox Costa are equally easy to reach.
Lovely villa. Pool slightly small, but OK. I never stay again in the same villa! Directions complex, but accurate. Google map location is wrong!

when my father in law lost his glasses the reps, were extremely prompt in returning his call and took him to the police station to translate for him. this enabled him to make a very speedy insurance claim when we returned home. it was their friendliness and efficiency that helped our holdiay be even more enjoyable.
the views from villa karina in nerja are stunning, i didn't want to leave and will definately return.

Generally, love the place, stayed here before.
3 reservations about booking again.
For us, we think that the beds need improving as there was some discomfort and comment from everyone. The last thing you want on vacation is a bad night's sleep.
Also, we think the master bathroom needs a refresh, the over bath shower is quite awkward to use and we ended up using the one on the upper level.
Finally, the TV/SAT instructions don't appear to match the system installed and we found it very difficult, if not impossible to find stations. There was only one programme we wanted to watch whilst away (sporting event) but we couldn't find it anywhere. Gave up in the end and didn't switch the TV on again but it wasn't an issue on holiday except for the one thing we wanted to watch, which we ended up watching online.

really nice villa. lovely views. Only two minor issues - maps. please for the love of god add a map on how to get there and where the bins are. maps are easy to do, and easy to follow - pages of text are not. and the instructions on where the bins are don't really even make sense 'turn right rather than the usual left when you get to the main road' - eh ? what usual ? what 'main road'.
other than that, though clean villa, nice pool. get a nice bit of wind most days. There's a hot tub too and air con is very powerful. As with nearly every villa I've ever rented, all the knifes are blunt..but all minor issues. I recommend this villa 100%.

Sutton Coldfield Family (the eldest child is at school)
Amazing location but some of the outside equipment was in poor condition. Directions were perfect by the way.

Having eventuality finding this villa!! Not easy in the dark, it was well worth it!! Absolutely 10 out of 10, what a beautiful location, the villa it's self, was large, with everything you could possibly want to have a great relaxing holiday, or in our case, ( honeymoon) the pool table, and hot tub, were a bonus!! The pool, a great size, and very well maintained, the outdoor BBQ, was equally good, as you can tell, we had a great time there, as I'am sure anyone who chooses this villa for there holiday, ( once you've found it!! )

This is the 5th time we have used James Villas, every time gets better but I doubt we could better this. The views from Villa Karina are staggering, unbelievable sunrise ( if you can wake up early enough) and mesmerising sunset, we even saw two firework displays for free. The villa itself is clean and captures the sun from dawn til dusk. One word of warning, as we are a couple we hired a small pugeot 108, big enough for two with luggage , but struggled to climb the steep mountain track. I would suggest something a bit more powerful. Would we return? Of course we would ,and we have never stayed in the same Villa twice but this could become our relax retreat. If you are looking for a Villa away from the crowds, free from the noise and looking for peace Villa Karina is for you. We highly recommend it, supermarket is about 500mtrs from the foot of the mountain and Nerja beach another few kilometres away. A visit to Frigiliana is a must, the views are equally stunning from there and such a pretty little village. We could go on and on about this holiday but suffice to say Book It you won't be disappointed.
