8 bedroom villa to rent in Marbella, Costa del Sol
April 2019

It is a spectacular house with an outstanding interior design. Let´s say "kitsch" and that is not ment as criticism. My grown up children just loved it. Absolutely not a "normal" house, but perfect for a celebration. We spent some wonderful days there and we were 19 for dinner one night! We had catering from DeliFreshGo recommended by the owner. They were fantastic! Good food and excellent service by George and Jean. Two dinners and three breakfast that was outstanding! The only thing that was a bit irritating was the neighbours dogs that kept barking a most of the time :-( But overall a fantastic stay in an extraordinary house.

3 bedroom holiday villa in Marbella, Costa del Sol, with swimming pool
March 2019

All sides image and functional apartment. Sheltered and comfortable terraces. A neat apartment that was already 17 years old, which was mainly reflected in the wear and tear of some of the furniture and the small sound of air conditioners. The sofa group should be changed. It has sometimes been luxurious and magnificent, but in its present state it is below the other level of the object. The senses of our team sensed the odor of moisture damage? All in all, a really hot and safe destination. Good traffic connections.

4 bedroom villa to rent in Marbella, Costa del Sol
August 2018

we stayed here from 01.08.2018-10..08.2018 I can honestly say this is the best villa me and my family have stayed in. It was clean and spacious even when you have three teenagers with you they had space for privacy by playing with the pool table and playing darts in the ground floor living area, pool and surrounding garden was excellent, we couldn't keep the kids out of the pool. Its a 20 minute walk to the beach (just go through the tennis club gates).. There is a super-market bottom of the street and also a small café called Mamas bakery which is amazing. The bus route into Marbella is just in front of the supermarket and is route number 220 which comes every 30 minutes and only costs 1 Euro 20, cross the road and the same bus will take you to Fuengirola for the same price. Just be mindful the villa is on a hill, its fine walking to the beach, shop and bus stop but can be tiring on the leg muscles on the way back up to the villa. I will definitely be looking to book here again, thank you for an amazing holiday in your villa, we had an amazing ten days.
