This is a beautiful house, modern , clean, elevated and very big inside. Its got everything you could need. With a beautiful marble floor and fabulous heavy curtains.
Its got a fantastic huge TV, with lots of wonderful ENGLISH SPEAKING News channels English, Russian, American, all English speaking (this is becoming more difficult to get in Spanish houses).
The hosts Caroline and Jeff are really sweet and will do anything they can for you.
Their rental prices are also very reasonable and fair.
There is also a beautiful swimming pool there and a HUGE veranda for strolling around. We even met Caroline's Mum, Tessa who was a lovely nice lady.
Mellihia is a very nice town also. With a fabulous Catholic church and lots of history. A great beach also - if you get the weather.
However.....an honest review is not a balanced review if it does not also include the negative and bad points also. So here's the negatives.
They charge you for EVERYTHING ! and try to sell you lots of rubbishy tours. You'll even be charged for HEAT !! and wait for it..... you,ll also be charged for the WASHING MACHINE !!
My wife and I have been travelling the world for nearly 40 years - and we've NEVER been charged to use a washing machine.
Also, the check out time is ridiculously early - at 10am No Villa or hotel anywhere throws you out at 10am.
If you do check out later - they'll charge you 25 euro.
Even if there is nobody else checking in the same day - they'll still charge you 25 euro. I thought this was a bit mean and grabby.
These though are only small complaints and are not that important and would never stop me staying there again - or recommending to anyone else, to stay there.
Its a beautiful house. A beautiful place. With beautiful people.

We stayed at the Villa High noon upper villa in late October early November 2017.
Pre arrival, Jeff (the owner) could not have been more helpful. He arranged airport transfers (turned up to get us himself!) and his wife Caroline sorted out a hire car for us. They also arranged babysitting for our 2 year old so that we could have a few peaceful adult dinners.
Very comfortable with good children's facilities. We have one 2 year old son who is very active. The cot provided was great for us... If you have an escape artist toddler then consider bringing a travel cot or putting them in a bed. The rooms were dark enough for daytime naps with the curtains drawn. Jeff and Caroline provided a very nice high chair. In the outdoor cupboard there were a few toy cars and trucks that our son really enjoyed, as well as multiple buckets and spade and a few pool toys.
The beds were very comfortable. There is a family bathroom and a shower room. There is a fold out double sofa bed in the living room, so theoretically one could sleep 8 in this villa. The kitchen has a gas stove, grill and oven, fridge freezer and kettle. Everything was scrupulously clean. Outside there is a barbeque, washing machine (available for a €10 fee) and multiple washing lines. There's plenty of room to stretch out on a sunbed or run around with toy cars! A nice surprise was the tortoise that live in the garden. He comes out for his lunch every day. Our son was thrilled.
The pool is accessed via stairs and is in front of the lower villa. The pool is gated and not easy for little hands to open. It isn't heated - not a problem for us as the sea was warm. Once again it was really really clean.
The surrounding area has plenty of decent shops for basics, a supermarket and a small playground. Jeff's family live on the top floor and everyone was really kind and friendly.
Overall it was exactly as advertised, Jeff and Caroline made us really welcome and it was as easy as a holiday with a toddler can be.
We'll definitely be back!
Stayed at villa Highnoon in Sept 2017, the villa was ideal for our group of six people with two couples having double rooms and two others a twin bedded room. There was also a very comfortable extra double bed in the quite private end of the living room on which one person chose to sleep throughout the holiday.
We decided to use our hosts for the transfers to and from the airport, good choice with them giving us a tour of places of interest, shops, eating places as well as some of the local bars etc. Our hosts could not have been more pleasant or helpful, anything we asked / requested was provided and speedily to.
The nearest eating places were a mere five minutes walk as was the nearest bar. Shops ie supermarket was only another five minutes farther on and newspapers fruit shops etc the same.
I would highly recommend the villa upper highnoon to anyone who wants a highly relaxing stay with plenty of space both inside the villa and outside - the sun terrace is really good with shade available if required and very good facilities all round an excellent choice.
We booked both the upper and lower villas, for all our family. This is our sixth visit to "Highnoon" and was excellent as usual. The upgrades to upper Highnoon are great. We all loved the pool, which was clean and well serviced. Lovely views from the terrace over the valley and to the sea. We plan to visit again soon.
From being met at the airport to the return journey we could not fault this holiday. The villa is spacious and absolutely spotless and contains everything you could need. The pool is fabulous and cleaned daily. The supermarket is a short distance away and reasonably priced. Restaurants are also within walking distance albeit uphill!!! Caroline and Jeff, the owners are very friendly and helpful. I would have no hesitations about recommending this villa
