We stayed for a night but what a mistake this was! It is too short a time to be able to disconnect fully from everyday life, but it was fantastic. Linda was great with her knowledge of all things natural. All in all truly exceptional. Looking forward to return in a couple of weeks time.

It was lovely meeting you both & big thank you for your fabulous review!
We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast conversation, we think we could have continued all day as it was so interesting!
We have introduced a few new breads to the breakfast buffet from the local bakery so when you are next over hopefully you´ll get chance to test them out, fig bread, chocolate & orange rye bread, olive bread, sunflower bread etc., and our neighbours are now supplying us with freshly picked oranges for the breakfast juice & home grown produce, they´re delicious!
Hope all goes well & that you are both feeling fine.
Looking forward to seeing you soon.

I stayed in january for few nights and what I could say I really had a great time, Linda was very helpfull, service in the morning was very good,you have an open kitchen with drinks with plenty of options. if you want to relax and disconect from work it's the place to go, not far away from the mall center and few minutes drive form the beach.

We stayed in the villa for four nights (relax suite) and we loved it. It was everything we hoped for and more.
The urban villa has been the pure definition of the word relaxing, the atmosphere around the house feels like home. we had a beautifull terrace to enjoy the sun and the pool was lovely as well.
Linda proves to be the perfect hostess. Everything from breakfast to dinner is managed according to the guests' wishes. We felt very welcome.
We would definately recommend this chique boutique hotel to anyone who is looking for a place to relax and to have daytrips from. 
Go and experience it! We would love to go back already, we are only home for a week...

Thanks for your fantastic review but the pleasure was all ours!
We are already organising the villa for Christmas with Goose for the 24th & Turkey for the 25th December, so plenty of delicious food, pine christmas tree, bubbly, music & maybe even some dancing? Even the garden is getting into the swing of things as we are planting the beautiful red poinsettias all over, so if you manage to escape we are sure you will love it even more.....

It was lovely meeting you both & hopefully we will see you very soon.

The awe inspiring location of this small hotel is only one of the amazing experiences of staying there.
The accommodation is unique and excelled all expectations. The ambiance, food, service and facilities were excellent.
I have stayed in many hotels and self catering villas in and around Marbella over the last 20+ years and have never been more comfortable than my stay at the Urban Villa last week.
I will definitely be staying there the next time I visit Marbella.

Room Tip: All the rooms are unique .....follow the description on the web site.

Big thank you for your amazing review, it always makes us feel good when reading such great reviews. We are always so enthusiastic to ensure our guests have the best stay ever but after reading your review it just gives us an even bigger push and are even more enthusiastic & working even harder!
We agree with you & are so fortunate to have such a privilaged location with "awe inspiring views" above Marbella where you can see the coastline of Africa & Gibraltar. It is true, all the beds are definately so comfortable.
Shame you won't be able to stay over Christmas as we have all sorts of nice surprises installed & house decorated in the festive mood.
Enjoy the UK & have a great trip back to America.
See you both soon.....

The Urban Villa truly is a little gem in the hills above Marbella - everything you could want from a small boutique establishment The Urban Villa offers complete relaxation(!), yet is still only a few minutes drive from Marbella Town. We arrived with the intention of staying 1 night ... 5 nights later we regretfully left!! Having finally risen from our magnificent 4 poster bed, most of our days were spent on the sunloungers on our private balcony! In the evenings we ventured to our favourite restaurants and also experienced 'Casanis' in the heart of Marbella Old Town (on recommendation from Linda, the owner of The Urban Villa) - similarly we cant recommend this restaurant strongly enough now!! One of the evenings we opted to stay 'in' and had a light dinner on our balcony with a drop of vino - dining in the outdoor air as the sun set, you can't beat it! We were then invited by Linda to join her for a g & t on the terrace off the main sitting room - a wonderful evening of stories & adventures & in such a picturesque setting! As a couple that like to literally put their feet up & switch off on holiday, The Urban Villa IS the spot in which to do so!! We can't recommend The Urban Villa strongly enough! Best of luck Linda in your new venture - the perfect host & as guests, assured a truly memorable stay! Looking forward to returning very soon! x

Room Tip: The King Suite - top floor of this beautiful traditional villa to yourselves with private balcony offering uninterrupted views of Gibraltar & North Africa
