“An apartment with a view!!”

What can I say, Vine Ridge is truly, truly amazing. We arrived at Malaga airport and picked up our hire car. The directions David emailed were great although we thought we were going too high... just keep going!! The initial drive up to the apartment is pretty hair raising but once you have done it once or twice you are okay and the views are astounding! David and Jackie made us really very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. There was a welcome pack in our apartment with wine, eggs, water etc which was so lovely and a little guide book of things to do in the area. Being an adventurous couple we drove to Granada and to Malaga for the feria. Would recommend stopping over if driving long distances though, which we did. We also walked up to Comares which was charming and had days on the beaches of Torre del Mar and further down. The nearest supermarket is in Benemagosa - 20 mins drive down which has everything you need to stock up with. We stargazed, cooked home made paella, had lovely barbecues and shared lazy days with our books by the pool with the Andalusian mountains as an inspiring backdrop.. This is the real Spain!! David and Jackie, thank you once again for this special taste of paradise. We shall return when we start out living in Malaga!! Once you try this you will never go back to an all inclusive holiday in touristy Spain!! We will return and I never say this about a place!! Cheers and best regards, Hannah & Paul

Never been to coastal Spain before but will surely go again after this. Lovely scenary, lovely people and a lovely way of life. It's peaceful, chilled and spectacular too. The accommodation is exactly as described and the hosts have mastered the art of making guests perfectly welcomed and at ease. Great walking territory, plenty of resonably well marked routes so bring good shoes. And if you hire a car, pay a few quid extra to get one with enough of an engine to get up the hills. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place.

If you want the hustle and bustle of city life, don't book here, however, if you want to relax, breathe fresh air and take in stunning panoramic views of coast, mountain, sky and valley you surely wont be disappointed.
The poolside studio where we stayed is pretty small, but great value and as long as you are organized it is perfectly functional and has everything you will need inside and out.
The drive up to Vine Ridge is "an experience" to say the least, particularly the first time, but once you have been up and down its fine, just don't bring the Ferrari !!!
David and Jacqui are great hosts and always available when needed, a good source of information and advice about the local area, and their three dogs are a pleasure to have around, each a different character but combining to make a great team, great fun and we thoroughly enjoyed their company.
A very pleasant week.

A lovely review thank you and we are proud that although the pool side studio is our smallest rental it is always well received and suits most guests needs , our boys make many guests holiday and the views and the nearby village of Comares are the icing on the cake, thank you once again.

“Great place to chill out and recharge your batteries !”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We feel so lucky to have come across this place. Nestled up in the Comares hills with unforgettable views - it was just the tonic we needed after a hectic December in England. We hired a car and explored the surrounding area, which in our view is probably high on the 'most spectacular' list for this part of Spain. Nerja, Frigiliana, Malaga are all within an hours drive - the local villages being well worth a visit too, Christmas lunch at the local Table Mountain restaurant was delish ! One afternoon we walked up the old donkey track to Comares from the apartment and rewarded ourselves with coffee and a very large brandy in the local bar !
The apartment was clean and well stocked - with all you require for a self-catering holiday. Hosts David and Jacqui were so helpful, knowledgeable and friendly, and their doggies Chicco, Charlie & Bruno a delight !
All in all a fabulous week was had .. Christmas in Comares - perfect. x

“Lovely relaxing break in a stunning location”
Reviewed November 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed in the apartment which was perfectly equipped for our stay. If you want a relaxing break away from everything then this is for you. The accommodation was as described on owners direct / the owner's website and David was more than happy to help if we needed anything / had questions.

We hired a car for our stay which was essential, although there are walks from the apartment. We would recommend getting a car that is one or two steps above the most basic - so ford focus or similar as the track is pretty steep but the view is worth it (we drove around the area and could not find a view to match the one from the balcony at the apartment).

We visited the El Torcal National Park which is well worth a visit, the Cueva Nerja and saw flamingos at Laguna de Fuente de Piedra.

We had a great week and would definitely recommend this to friends / family and we will hopefully be back sometime.

A lovely review and it is special to us when valued guests appreciate our honest advertising, we want happy guests and repeat customers and that is what we get, I would say that if you like walking then you can survive without a car as the amazing village of Comares is only a 30 minute walk away and we offer a great value airport pick up service,if you want to explore more than a car is needed.Thank you once again.

Vine ridge really is the loveliest place to stay to explore Malaga and surrounding Andalucia. We went with the idea of fully utilising the retreat part planning to relax and read etc. We had a lovely first day enjoying the lovely pool and amazing views , enjoying an ice cream or a cold drink from the honesty fridge (a great idea) however being used to more active holidays we just couldn't help but explore, especially after finding the very informative folder of leaflets and ideas in the apartment. We travelled to Gibraltar, Maro, Nerja, Estapona, and Balamadena via a ferry trip from Malaga port. These trips a very doable in a day, although we were usually out at sunrise (a very respectable 8am) and back after dark. This actually meant we didn't see to much of our lovely hosts David and Jacquie Cullimore, however we still felt very warmly welcomed, and they can offer a wealth of information on the area and make recommendations etc. In essence we really loved the apartment which had everything we needed, the little welcome pack in the fridge was indeed very welcome after arriving after dark, the apartment is spotless and the proper double bed very comfortable. We know all guests will enjoy as there is something for everyone and you would enjoy it just as much if you never left the apartment or clocked up over 500k as we did. The views have to be seen to be believed and its a photographers paradise. Go book it now x
