I organised a trip to Villa Anadaluz for 2 familes including 4 adults and 6 children ranging from 10 months to 9 years in age for Christmas 2017. We also had parents in law staying nearby and visiting us at the villa and the space was more than ample for everyone to eat, relax, cook etc . As the trip was over Christmas the owners had arranged for some Christmas decorations / trees in the house which was very much appreciated. We were met on arrival by Maddi to collect keys and get a brief tour of the house, Maddi had also stocked the fridge with beer, wine, cheese, ham etc which was particularly helpful as we had arrived late at night. The heated pool stayed warm enough as long as it was covered at night and we were pretty lucky with the weather so the kids were happy to be able to swim every day.
The immediate area around the villa is quiet (more houses of the same style) and feels safe and the main A7 road is close by for trips to Marbella, Estepona and lots of nearby supermarkets and La Canada (huge shopping centre). The outdoor space is also huge and the front garden is seperated / gated from the back so young children can play outside in front of the house without the worry of having access to the pool.
This really is a fantastic, very spacious house that is a great option for the type of Christmas trip that we planned. There is a full UK TV package including sports and kids channels to keep everyone occupied in quieter moments in both living areas. A typical day for us was breakfast outside in the sunshine, swimming in the pool with the kids, a trip to Marbella or Estepona for a walk on the beach / old town and either cooking or eating takeaway (plenty of local options) at the house in the evening. The generous, friendly approach of the owners and local assistants makes a huge positive difference to the experience of renting this house and i would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends and family.
Perfect holiday retreat.
Lovely views from the balconies, amazing location and facilities the villa provides everything you could ever need.
10/10 would definitely stay here again!
The villa was excellently equipped and with lots of space, everyone was able to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The heated pool and table tennis table were a great hit with the children, and we all had a stressless holiday. Thank you to the owners for making us all so welcome.
Villa Andaluz is an excellent villa, having all the amenities that you could wish for and serves as a perfect place to relax, swim and enjoy the luxurious surroundings.
The villa is owned by Anne and Rob Garnett who are extremely nice, kind and caring people, who are very well served by Sarah and her staff of cleaners and gardeners, all of who have been with Anne for many years.
I can thoroughly recommend this villa, where our party of six will be returning to for our third visit next year.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the lady who looks after the house and were given a detailed tour of the property which is on 3 floors. We were amazed at how much equipment, crockery, cutlery and kitchen appliances were available. No need to bring anything, it is all there. The villa was spotless, the pool was clean (tended regularly)and the garden very tidy and with plenty of furniture for hot, lazy days! The villa is quite large with plenty of room to relax and the dining area on the terrace was our favourite place. There are gas bbq's in the garden which we used some evenings and ate out on others. The villa is not far from restaurants and small supermarkets. Although we used the car for these, you could walk if you feel energetic enough. (uphill on the way back!) Two large supermarkets were a little bit further along the main road. We would recommend Lola's Bar (down the hill and turn left) for tapas where were made to feel very welcome and looked after. Would advise booking though as it does get busy. We did not go out and about much as this was a definite 'chill out' holiday but did visit the local beach one afternoon, which has a very nice restaurant, and a little trip to Peurto Banus. All in all, a superb holiday villa, really comfortable and we felt very much 'at home' whilst staying there.
Fantastic stay in this lovely villa. Garden & pool area fantastic, secluded and sunny! Short drive to supermarkets and restaurants, golf. Enjoyed our week could have stayed longer. Everything you need, home from home. Owners very helpful. Plenty space for a few families. Would visit again.
