This Villa is absolutely amazing!! Booked for a joint 40th. Arrived to find champagne and birthday cake with 40 candles and lots more! So clean and tidy. The owner and her team were excellent. We will be rebooking!!! Thank you x
This villa is absolutely amazing, so much so that we've booked to return next year. From the moment we booked Catherine was so helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. The villa is spacious, clean and a fantastic layout and the welcome pack on arrival is an added bonus. The walk down to Marbella is approx 25 mins, and the supermarket up the road is great. If you want a 5* villa in the heart of Marbella then look no further, this is the one. We can't wait to return and highly recommend booking.
We had a great holiday stay in villa especial. Great location for old town Marbella , supermarket just along the road. Catherine provides everything you need to make your stay enjoyable lots of extras,pool table table tennis sky TV keeps kids happy. Catherine also helped with transfers and Zac was there to greet you on your arrival and on hand if any problems. Will certainly hope to be back soon .
The villa was very spacious and in a great location. It had a lovely pool in quiet surroundings but was convenient to the old town of Marbella, taxis, coach station etc. It was well equipped and suitable for a family of all ages. Cathy, the owner was incredibly helpful and ensured that we had everything we needed for our holiday, even providing toiletries in the bathrooms and bedrooms to condiments and spices etc in the kitchen. We all had a wonderful time and would certainly return!
A really lovely villa......fantastic accommodation and very well-equipped for our extended family get-together. The villa has a wonderful flow to all the rooms, and lots of different areas for everybody to relax and enjoy their holiday, including a great pool in a walled and private garden. It's located in a friendly local area, convenient for transport links and shopping, and walking distance to the beautiful old town of Marbella, the Marina and lovely stretches of sandy beaches.
A fantastic villa set in a quite residential area with a beautiful mountain backdrop. The heated pool allowed constant enjoyment even on the few overcast and breezier days. Our teenage son was perfectly at home camped in the games room with the xbox one and pool table at his disposal!
The Mercadona Supermarket, a two minute walk up the road that was more than sufficient to cater for all our needs and stocked well known english brands as well as a bakery, plenty of fruit and veg and fresh fish and meat that was a joy to cook on the BBQ.
A two minute walk down the hill you find yourself at the main Bus station and Taxi rank for trips into town, to the beach and beyond.
All rooms were fully air conditioned and superbly decorated throughout.
Catherine (the owner) was immensely helpful throughout booking our stay and advised on transfers and arranged for Cots and high-chairs for our twins, nothing was too much trouble and on arrival we were also presented with a lovely welcome pack to get the holiday started.
I would certainly recommend this villa and if returning to Marbella would certainly hope to stay again.
Taxi from villa to the beach was 6-8 Euros
Taxi from villa to Orange Square 6-7 Euros
Taxi from Villa to Puerto Banus was approx 15 Euros
It’s hard to know where to start, as there are so many wonderful things to comment on from our fantastic holiday at Villa Especial.
There were 8 of us during our stay - 2 families: 4 adults & our 4 grown up children in there 20’s and the villa accommodated us beautifully. The moment we all walked through the door it felt like we’d walked into a small piece of Spanish luxury.
Without question the Villa is superbly equipped and has everything you could wish for, the attention to detail is second to none and the facilities are perfect for all ages. From… Internet TV, excellent WIFI signal, fitness room, game’s room, BBQ and even down to inflatable toys for the pool – touches that made everyone happy!
It’s easy to get to the Villa from the airport - we decided not to hire a car but there are taxis directly outside the airport terminal together with a bus which takes you directly to Marbella bus station from where the villa is just a 5-minute walk.
The villa is superbly located, a short walk to Marbella Old Town and only a short taxi or bus journey to Puerto Buenos, there are also a number of golf courses close by. The local well stocked supermarket is only a 2- minute walk from the villa.
Villa Especial is itself a beautifully charismatic, truly Spanish style house. Inside, the decor is a stunning mixture of modern and traditional themes. The pool area, where we spent most of our time, is great with comfortable sun loungers, chairs and sofas, a perfect venue for enjoying a relaxing early evening cocktail. It was a real pleasure to stay at this special place and we all look forward to our next visit! Thank you.
