Villa La Sirena Details
Villa La Sirena is divided into two separate living spaces that are adjoined by a common patio as was typical by early Moorish architects. We refer to these distinctive living spaces as Side A, and Side B.
Side A features an expansive wrap around porch and large living area with a cozy fireplace that functions as a favorite year around gathering place to read, eat, relax, and entertain. Decorated in a stylish Mediterranean décor, the numerous windows from the living area provide gorgeous views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.
Side A’s living room comes complete with two large sofas, television, a DVD/VHS player (with a selection of movies for all the family), and satellite system.
A separate dining room with French doors, opens onto the patio, and comfortably seats 8 people. Next to the dining room is the kitchen which is fully outfitted, and equipped with a large refrigerator/freezer, ideal for keeping your San Miguel chilled. The kitchen has plenty of cutlery, crockery & glasses in which to prepare meals. Off the kitchen, is a utility room with a washer and dryer and a line to hang your bathing suits to dry.
There are three bedrooms. Two are on the main floor, and have built in wardrobes and bedside units with drawers. One has an en-suite bath with shower, and the other has a full size bath and shower just outside the bedroom door.
The third bedroom overlooks the patio and pool area and has an en-suite bathroom, and private balcony/terrace. It can only be accessed from the patio, and sits within a strand of trees which provides privacy from both villas.
The exterior structure of Side B features a three story, castle-like tower with a spiral staircase leading to the Master Bedroom and a roof top terrace that serves as a relaxing spot to watch the amazing sunsets and star-filled evening skies.
You enter Side B via the common patio and walk into a bright living and dining area with windows facing south to the sea. There are two bedrooms in Side B, and they are split over two levels. The downstairs bedroom is large enough to accommodate two sets of bunk beds plus a sitting area with large bay windows overlooking the rose garden and sea. The top two bunks are single beds and the bottom two bunks are each double beds.
A large bathroom with a walk-in shower and separate bath is located up a half flight of stairs from the bedroom and living area. On that same level, a small but fully equipped kitchen provides easy access to preparing and serving meals in the dining area or patio.
Off the kitchen, an internal staircase built within the castle tower takes you to the spectacular Master Suite with en-suite bath, and oversized balcony facing out over the sea. This is a breathtaking space where you will spend evenings gazing out at the fishing boats and listening to the steady crashing of the waves as you doze off to sleep.
The entrance to Villa La Sirena features a curved staircase leading up to a wrought- iron gated entrance. As you walk through the gate you will step into a historic Andalusian patio featuring Moroccan detail. This split-level patio is a common area for the two almost adjoining living spaces. A few steps up takes you to several landings—the top landing giving you access to a private pool with a sweeping view of the Mediterranean Sea. Next to the pool you will find a fully fitted outdoor kitchen and covered dining area large enough to seat 12. It is uniquely designed for entertaining groups and families and is perfectly situated with beautiful views across the water.
There are so many places on this property to relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the Costa Del Sol. Stroll through the beautifully landscaped rose garden with its distinctive flowering trees, and look for the two ideally placed hammocks each having beautiful views overlooking the Bay.

The villa was really great. We had so much room to spread out and enjoy the weather, space, grill, pool etc. It is a fabulous sanctuary. Don't overlook Malaga because the guide books play it down. It is a wonderful city just 30 minutes away. Thanks for sharing your home with us Jim!”
