The Beach House was the backdrop for a perfect family vacation. My family rangeded in age from 85 to 2 and everything that makes home a home was at this beautiful location. Pack your bags and have a wonderful stay.
We had an amazing week’s holiday in this villa which is like a home-away-from-home! The house is decorated to a very high standard with all of the mod-cons you could possibly need and there is a great feeling of space inside. The kitchen, sitting room and master ensuite bedroom are huge. There is also a brand-new bathroom just off the kitchen which is handy for when you have to come in from the pool and don’t want to get the carpet down to the other bathroom wet. There is also a lovely shaded dining area right beside the barbecue which we used for lunch and dinner every day and a relaxing area with soft couches just beside it.
The house is so comfortable that some days we never even left, but the beach (Playa Artola) and Cabopino Marina are just a short, easy walk away. The location was ideal for us because it’s away from noisy tourist areas but the restaurants and bars in Cabopino are close by. To get to the beach and the marina there is a wooden walkway that goes through beautiful, natural dunes with fantastic views of the sea. The towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus are also a short car drive away and well worth a visit.
I would also recommend the house for people with children. In our group we had 2 small children and a baby and they loved playing in the beautifully kept garden. (There is both shade and sun so you can pick which you want depending on the time of day.) There is also the option to have the pool heated (which we asked for) so they could get in first thing every morning and stay in for hours without getting cold. The water was even warm enough for my baby to get in every day and he loved it. There are steps into the pool – again, very good for small children - as they can sit there and splash for hours and also for old people who would have trouble climbing up “ladder” steps.
Lesley, the house manager, did a shop for us the morning we arrived so we had all the essentials, toiletries and food to make a late lunch for ourselves when we arrived and we were able to relax with a glass of wine instead of having to rush off to the supermarket. We were especially grateful for this service as it made travelling that bit easier for us all.
All in all we would definetely recommend this house and will hopefully be back again in the not so distant future.
We recently returned from a wonderful and relaxing family holiday (5 adults and two kids). The villa was in an excellent location. It was within easy walking distance to the beach and restaurants (10-12 mins) yet in a lovely quiet residential area.
The villa and gardens were beautifully maintained and exceptionally well equipped. While we ate out most evenings we returned from the beach for lunch and a lazy afternoon by the pool most days. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of outdoor seating and shade at the dining table, sofa area and sun loungers. There were also lots of pool toys and floats and a kids playhouse.
Lesley, the manager, was extremely helpful and stocked the kitchen (for a small fee) based on a shopping list we provided upfront which avoided the need to visit the supermarket upon arrival. Both Lesley and Bernadette were also very helpful in returning an item we left in the villa after flying back home to the US.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa with us.
