We have just returned from spending two weeks in this wonderful little corner of Cortijo san Rafael, just outside Frigiliana, and have no hesitation in recommending both Villa Dachita, and it's owners Javier and Rosario, to anyone.
The villa is exactly as described in the write up, spotlessly clean, with good showers, comfortable beds, plenty of kitchen equipment if you have a mind to use it, and a great view to sit watching the sun go down with a cold glass of - whatever you prefer!
Javier and Rosario are consummate hosts - helpful and available, but not intrusive. I was a little wary, this being the first time booking on TripAdvisor, but my concerns were groundless. My biggest worry is that if I share just how great they are - we'll never be able to book one of their places again because they'll be full!!
A couple of things to note - the villa is a couple of miles out of Frigiliana town itself in a residential area, and the parking space is tight - not really suitable for larger or low slung cars, though we parked a little further up the road without a problem

“Perfect place to unwind”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in September 2013

This was our third visit to Dachita and, as always, we felt totally relaxed from the minute we arrived. We really enjoy our stays in this lovely little villa (which is so cosy and full of character), and never want to leave. Although conveniently located just off the main road between Nerja and Frigiliana it still feels really tranquil and "away from it all" The villa is spotlessly clean and really well equipped, with everything you could possibly need. Rosario and Javier also provide a really generous welcome pack, which definitely goes beyond "the basics". The views from the terrace and the rooftop pool are fantastic - look out for the eagles above the mountains! Rosario and Javier are the perfect hosts. Nothing is too much trouble and we know they are just a 'phone call away should we need them. Would thoroughly recommend, and are really looking forward to returning - soon, we hope! Thanks Rosario and Javier for our wonderful holidays.

“Relaxing week at Villa Dachita”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We spent a week at Villa Dachita in June, having booked directly with Javier and Rosario. Directions provided to the Villa were detailed and accurate, and Javier was quick and responsive to questions by email.

The villa is situated half way up the road from Nerja to Frigiliana, with views out over the Nerja valley and the sea. A small parking space is situated directly below the villa on a steep road - very large rental vehicles might struggle. It is important to note that the villa is on a hill, and there are steepish outdoor steps to get to the swimming pool, so it may not be suitable for those with mobility issues. That said, I was 6 months pregnant when we were there and I had no problems!

Inside the villa was very clean and tidy. A handy welcome pack with ham, eggs, bread, croissants, juice, bottle of wine was provided, and the kitchen has all necessary items. The bathroom is a good size and best of all the shower is hot and powerful.

The views from the terrace are stunning. The swimming pool is situated on a separate roof terrace, which felt private and sheltered. The area that the villa is in is very quiet and peaceful, yet only a 5 minute drive from either Nerja or Frigiliana. On a few days during our stay, a dense sea mist came in over Nerja, and we sat smugly in the sunshine - if we were visiting the area again I would make sure was at a similar elevation above sea level as it must have ruined a few holidays.

The villa has all the main English TV channels plus CD player and plenty of CDs and books. The free wifi has a strong signal and we were both able to use it while relaxing by the pool.

Javier is a fabulous host - he called in briefly at the beginning of our stay to check all was well, and provided us with a few mobile numbers should we need any assistance. We felt secure in the knowledge he was available if we needed him, but he lets his guests have the privacy they desire.

This was our second trip to the area. Frigiliana is a lovely little village with plenty of restaurants and little shops to wander around. Granada is less than an hour and a half away, and there are lots of beaches within a short drive.

We would thoroughly recommend this villa to couples or small families.Thanks Javier!

“Perfect location and beautiful place to stay”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have just returned from a very relaxing week staying at this property - beautiful location, 10 minutes from the beach and 10 minutes into Frigliana village by car. The accommodation is extremely well equipped and very comfortable and having arrived late afternoon the welcome pack of wine, water, bread, juice etc was very welcome! The views are spectacular and it is very quiet with only the bird song disturbing the peace. The only slight disappointment was the size of the pool, which I think is slightly misleading in the pictures as it is dipping size only not swimming size. However it was still very welcome to cool off from quite hot days in May. Many thanks for a lovely stay.
