It is a well designed open plan living space with the following zones.
A double bedroom area which has plenty of storage and a lovely shower room leading from this area which gives the feeling of an en-suite and spoils you with a large walk in mosaic tiled shower plus of course WC and basin. It is curtained off from the living area.
There is a cleverly planned Spanish influenced kitchen with a fridge freezer, 4 ring gas hob, microwave and plenty of cooking utensils and crockery. It also allows you to cook a paella, drink a glass of vino and gaze across to the sierras with the minimum of effort.
The sofa itself is opposite the satellite television with some English channels and DVD player, but often the 2 metre windows will focus your eyes towards the living picture beyond, especially if the eagles are floating on the thermals.
There is also a table in front of the patio doors which tends to be mainly used when alfresco living becomes less appetising in winter. Wi-fi is available.
The aim of our studio as with all of our rentals is to give functional and comfortable environment for you to relax in whilst on holiday.
Outside of the studio are tables and chairs in your own area and rustic stairs leading up to the pool terrace.
We have added a Jacuzzi for use in the Autumn/Winter months.

We had such an amazing time here. David took us from the airport and we had beautiful, funny and touching conversations. He was really helpful and since we came to the place, we felt totally private and at home. Not mentioning the breath-taking mountains and birds flying in the sky, flowers blooming all around, pool with hot sun and perfect place for sunbathing (we got even a bit too much of the sun 🙂 there is also a very nice 20/30 min. hike up to the city of Comares, genuinely recommed to have some walks there - the road is really beautiful, the city is calm, authentic and not spoiled by tourists at all. We would love to come back when there is a chance.! Greetings from Lithuania!
If you want to visit an authentic part of Spain; look out at stunning, spectacular views every day; go trekking on the mountainside in warm weather (even in winter) or just relax and chill out in an apartment in a fabulous villa with a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, great hosts and unbeatable prices, yet still only 40 minutes from the beaches of Torre del Mar (if you can drag yourself away), then Vine Ridge Retreats near the village of Comares, is the perfect place for you. We have just stayed there for one week and wish it could have been much longer.
It was the first time we had stayed in accommodation where the owner was on site and were not sure how it would work out. But it couldn't have been better! David (the owner) was very friendly and welcoming and put us at our ease right away. Throughout our stay he was always there to answer any questions and was very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. We were there house hunting and he went out of his way to help. His advice and knowledge were invaluable in pointing us in the right direction for first time buyers in Spain. Although David was always there when he was needed he was also careful to respect our privacy and to give us our own space.
In summary; Vine Ridge Retreats is a great place to stay for the reasons mentioned, and many more, but no review would be complete without a mention for David's three little helpers- AKA Bruno, Charlie and Chico – three of the cutest and friendliest dogs you will ever meet. They made an enjoyable experience even more enjoyable.
Needless to say: we will be back!
WOW WOW WOW.... what more can I say... we loved it .. from the moment we got there till we left... a great warm welcome from our hosts.. making us feel at home straight away... the villa was amazing .. spotlessly clean and every thing you could need for your stay... the views are amazing.. words cannot describe the views.. go and see for your selfs.... we WILL be back as soon as we can.. highly recommend staying here.
Our 3rd vist to Vine Ridge and it just gets better each time we come.David and Jacqui are the perfect hosts along with the dogs,Chico,Bruno and Charlie.the views are breathtaking and this being our 3rd visit we are still transfixed by the beauty.the rooms are well equipped for self catering and are very clean with brilliant poolside views.getting about in the car was easy and trips upto the local village of Comares takes just 5 mins.for us its the ultimate chillout location and seeing rural spain at its finest.we met some lovely people at the poolside and can't wait to go back.
We have been visiting Vine Ridge Retreats since 2015, staying at both the Vine Ridge and Poolside Studios. Our latest stay in the last week of June only reminded us of why we keep coming back! -The breath taking natural views from the studio and Poolside, the hospitality of our hosts David, Jacqui and the dogs, Chico, Bruno & Charlie!, relaxing days spent by the pool, long Sunny days ☀️, evening BBQ's, days out at the beach in Nerja & Torre De Mar, eating great tapas and drinking wine, exploring Velez Malaga old town & the hilltop village of Comares. Vine Ridge is simply the most tranquil and restorative place to relax and recharge the batteries and we'll be returning very soon!
I am losing count of the times I have returned to this Axarquia idyll - I think it's about five! Initially the stunning views and the natural peaceful environment provided the lure but it is also the warm welcome from our hosts, David & Jacqui, as well as the breakfast visits from 'The Boys' - the dogs Charlie, Cheeko and Bruno who are fantastic company. It's a beautiful drive either up to the Moorish hilltop town of Comares or to the friendly resort of Torre del Mar. I have got into the habit of hiring a road bike from Biciterraneo in Torre at least for one day to explore the quiet hill roads within a few kilometres of the coast for a very reasonable cost. It was so refreshing to wake up to the pleasantly warm Spring sunshine streaming in through the large patio windows of the Studio and to know that everything was on hand for a comfortable stay - including a couple of cold San Miguel beers in the fridge! Freesat TV also works well and the shower is always good and hot. See you again very soon David & Jacqui. David
Vine Ridge is indeed a retreat. Hidden in the Axarquia hills near to Comares, it provided everything I could possibly need for a 'get away from it all' break. The studio is great and contained every mod con to make me feel comfortable and at home. It is an easy drive from there to Comares, a gorgeous village nearby, perched on top of the mountain. Or else, if I had felt energetic, I believe that the walk over the hills to Comares is only about 30 minutes. I was an almost daily visitor to the village; I loved to explore there, climb through the streets, visit the landmarks and take in the stunning views. The people are very friendly and helpful, particularly in the cafe in the village square. I enjoyed sitting there in the sunshine watching the life of the village pass by.
David and Jacqui are excellent hosts. I highly recommend Vine Ridge Retreats!
Got back yesterday from what i can only describe as heaven, we've had an amazing 9 days at vine ridge studio. The views are fantastical, the hosts an absolute pleasure, and the three friendly little dog's just completed our holiday. Can highly recommend this.
Our second visit to Vine Ridge, and we weren't dissapointed, The Welcome, both human an canine was just as warm as our first visit. We hired a car with a little more power so it was easy to get up to vine ridge. Booking is easy with David and Jacqui and we can see a third visit when we want to recharge our batteries again.
this is a review i have been meaning to do since we were there in june 2016, now feb 17.
From booking to arrival went as smooth as silk with David & Jacqui, the girls and of course the wonderful dogs. Its a fun drive up to vine ridge, but when you arrive the view is Jaw dropping, and we sat there day or night drinking something soft, and something stronger sometimes just admiring the views. we just wanted to rest, but on the times we went out we found no problem getting good food. it was so relaxing we felt fully recharged to face the world again after 2 weeks there. when we want a similar break we wouldnt hesitate to go back to vine ridge
