This wasn't our first time to Casa Melody but this is the first time that we have been able to leave a review anywhere.
The property and facilities are first class and everything that you could possibly need is there including washing machine. We arrived as always to a fantastic welcome pack. No matter what time you arrive you will be able to have a drink and something to eat thanks to Margarets' welcome pack. There are even English teabags and coffee.
The villa is set amongst orange and lemon trees and you are welcome to help yourself.
Everything is maintained to the highest standard and each time we have been there have always been improvements. This time there was an extended patio and a hot tub.
Margaret and David are always around to help or advise you if you need anything and are really good hosts. That said however, they are not 'all over you' and allow you your privacy.
Estacion de Cartama is ideally situated for Malaga, Torremolinos and Benalmadena on the coast but also for the lakes a little further in land. The lakes make a good day out too and you can even rent pedaloes there.
The village boasts several surpermarkets, more bazaars than you can shake a stick at, lovely authentic Spanish bakeries and dozens of restaurants to suit all tastes. Also, because it isn't over touristy like the coast, one finds the prices to be much more reasonable in the bars and restaurants.
It is recommended that you have a car and I agree with this. There are taxis in the village and the train runs very well I'm told but I would hire a car even if I didn't use it.
I could go on for pages and pages here to be honest. It is always a pleasure to arrive and heartbreaking to leave. David and Margaret are fantastic hosts and we will be returning and recommending.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 10 March 2016 for a stay in October 2015

What can I say other than this place is absolute heaven on Earth. The accommodation is comfortable, relaxing and the owners so wonderfully friendly and welcoming. It is within easy reach of Malaga, Torremolinos and other resorts if you are feeling adventurous but if you just fancy lounging around then it is equally wonderful, with a lovely pool to cool yourself down in on a hot day. Thoroughly recommend this place 11 out of 10 :-)

“Just the ticket bob on”
Reviewed 25 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Our second visit to Casa Melody but our first time in winter it was lovely.
Margaret and David were once again the perfect hosts nothing to much
trouble. Since our last visit they have extended the patio area and
installed a new hot tub which my wife especially loved . We stayed for
11 days and the time flew by the perfect winter break and the weather was
kind to us blue sky and 23 degrees .Thank you Margaret and David hope
to see you again in the summer.

“Perfect holiday”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Everything that has already been said about this location and the lovely owners, Margaret and David are true. We could not have had a better place to stay and Margaret and David were the perfect hosts. Although in our 60s we brought 3 little boys with us who had never been to Spain before. They loved the pool and the toys that were there for them to play with. Margaret brought us cakes and jelly and David bought pool noodles specially for them/us. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday. Many thanks.
