I stayed at Casa Auriga with 9 other girls as part of a hen party.
The villa itself sleeps 10 very comfortably with 5 double rooms each with en suite. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious and clean the place is, we had so much room we didn't know what to do with it! The decor is lovely and there has been no expense spared with the fixtures and fittings which makes for a very comfortable stay.
The owners got us some shopping in so we had everything we needed on arrival. This is recommended as we got everything we asked for and meant we didn't have to drive to a supermarket when we got there.
The garden/pool area is well kept and has a lush view of the local area.
The villa is set in a pretty residential area near a golf course and in amongst some very pricey accommodation.
Puerto Banus is 10 minute drive. there is only one taxi firm which supplies the area and a word of warning must be had...they run the meter from the base unit so usually have 10euros already on the meter when they get to the villa. With 3 taxis for all of us this meant they were getting 30euros before they had even taken us anywhere! When we questioned this they refused to pick us up any more which caused difficulties in our transport throughout the stay. Luckily the friendly owners were on the end of the phone and we're able to give us some advice- apparently this is normal and unfortunately you have to pay it or walk! We ended up ordering taxis using another address a few doors up the road! Also, if you are using taxis leave plenty of time as they can be late!
What we are calling the 'taxi incident' did not spoil our stay at this lovely villa.
I would definitely return to Casa Auriga and will be recommending to family and friends.
Thanks to Shirley and Graham for the help, advice and hospitality.
