Travelled as family of 10 (8 plus 2 kids) to this very good size villa. However found the quality and quantity of poolside sunbeds , outside dining tables, chairs and their cushions all sadly lacking in quality and numbers. As a family we were unable to all be seated around the outside dining table together as it only sat six with six old chairs. The Bath towels were of very poor quality. Well used and odds and ends sizewise. Even after complaining their replacements were still not very good standard. Considering the price of the villa rental the supply of quality pool and bath towels should be a pre - requisite instead of odds and ends and sizes provided. This is not the quality of product we have in our own homes so should not have to put up with on an expensive holiday rental. Also surprised to find out, upon our arrival, that the large pool in the adjoining grounds was and had been under major redevelopment for sometime. A few keen swimmers amongst us were left very disappointed !
Absolutely beautiful villa, so well equipped with everything you could possibly need..
Julia was amazing, so helpful and went above and beyond to make us feel welcome..the gardens around the villa are just amazing, and the pool is fab, although not heated its just the right size to be heated by the sun..
the surrounding area is just as lovely and so pretty, good selection bars and restaurants, if you looking for a bit more atmosphere and shops, head to Estepona, (taxi 18.00 Euros) its just fab, walking along the seafront with the little market stalls...
Puerto Banus, is 5 mins by taxi and has a fab market on a saturday and all the usual designer shops....
just wish we could have stayed longer.....
This was my first experience of renting a Villa and it was truly an amazing holiday in a traditional Spanish villa in a perfect location. Julia and Paul who manage the property were most professional and helpful from initial enquiries( always very prompt replies and loads of details provided ) to making our three week stay as trouble free as possible including airport transfers for all the family. The Villa is quite beautiful , marble throughout very large rooms and five beautiful bedrooms( all with AC) all with huge ensuite bathrooms, The terraces upstairs are stunning and all 4 of the bedrooms have one and some have two and lovely places to chill in the morning . The sun room and terrace downstairs great cool places and we manage to eat all meals outside and the barbecue was well used. There were 7 of us including a very active 3 year old grandson who loved all the toys provided at the stunning private pool which was safe for him as able to play on shallow steps and pool had an alarm fitted. There is a beautiful mature garden that provides lots of shade and lots of palm trees and very colourful bird life . Manalo the caretaker/manager comes everyday to do garden, pool and any maintenance that needed to be done and was only too happy to help if any problems arose and everything was sorted. The sandy beach was only a few minutes walk and we ate at both beach restaurants more than once and there is a playground next to one which was great for the grandson while waiting for the meal. An Aldi supermarket is only 10minute walk away and other Shops and a very good variety restaurants are a good 20min walk away but all on the flat and we managed without a car( and enjoyed the exercise) and used taxis on the few occasions we went out to Marbella( 15mins drive) However, the Villa and surrounding area were the main attraction for all our group and we had some very special family time. The Villa is so well equipped and comfortable it was like being a special guest in someone's cherished home and my partner and I had a week there without the family which was a treat.
A book of essential facts and helpful advice was provided with contact phone numbers and the few issues we had were easily sorted and Paul was even able to help my partner find a music shop to restring his banjo in Marbella and the acoustics in the Villa were great.
I would certainly return and have no hesitation recommending this rental.
After the disappointment of a cancelled booking elsewhere this was a real find that meant all the hassle had been worthwhile. A beautiful, spacious villa with more than enough space for our party of nine. Beautiful gardens lovingly tended by Manolo who was always willing to help with anything. Lovely alarmed pool perfect for kids and adults alike. Other pools across the road but no real need to leave the garden.Perfectly situated for local beaches and beach bars and about a ten to fifteen minute cab ride to Puerto Banus. A large, clean Aldi store within about a five minute walk.
Everything needed for your stay is provided, with a few extras on top!
Julia met us on arrival and ensured everything went smoothly during our stay. Please make use of her local guide to amenities as she makes every effort to keep this current and informative.
Would recommend to anyone and can't wait to revisit soonest.
