Stayed for one week with teenage children and had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Kirsten (owner) had thought of everything! We will definitely return.
We had such a great stay at Villa Magarita we really did not want to leave. On arrival the first thing you notice is the beautiful pool, and a great outdoor bar/bbq area next to it - the best way to relax after a long day traveling. The villa is situated a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Marbella and Puerto Banus ( great if you like that thing) but to be honest we didnt go out much. The villa is in a quiet area and a great place to escape and unwind. There are many local supermarkets nearby, and a few larger ones that stock a range of international goods ( although these can be pricey.) A trip to the local market was a great way to sample many locally produced goods which were delicious. The Villa had everything you could possibly expect to find in your own home and more - one of our favorites - the ice maker! Most evenings we enjoyed dinner on the fantastic covered veranda. The villa was spotless, and on arrival the owner was there to show us around and ensure we had everything we needed, apart from that she was only phone call away, and a great source of local information. The main bedroom is huge and airy, and I must say the pillows were great ( sorry I have pillow OCD! ) We love to cook - the kitchen was a delight, lots of space and equipped with everything you could possibly need - I may have mentioned the ice maker - i did become obsessed!! There is a beautifull lounge - which we barely used as most of our time was spent outside. We really wished we could have stayed longer and hope we can come back to the villa next year.

We couldn't have asked for more for our short get-a-way! Super location - central but tranquille and peaceful, lóvely house - it felt like being home instead of being in a vacation house, fantastic welcome by the owners with a 'me casa, tu casa' - how incredible! And everything super clean and nice and neat... amazing. We just loved everything in and around and about Villa Margaritha and we will definitely return! Our evenings at the private pool, overlooking the riverbed and seeing the sunset in th emountains.... Just bliss!
This was our second time staying at this gorgeous villa and it was every bit as good as the last!
This villa has everything you could ask for, beautiful setting, extremely well equipped and extremely clean.
It has many quirky elements, that make you feel you are in a home away from home. The property is well maintained and very spacious. A caretaker visits every other day to clean the pool and water the beautiful plants and herbs. It is very private with no one onlooking the pool area. It has a lovely outdoor BBQ area and surf shack area where we could sit at night, when the children went to bed and enjoy a glass of wine.
San Pedro is about a 25 min walk away and is a beautiful Spanish town with lots of lovely bars and restaurants. We often walked the 5 mins to the Barcelo hotel and got a taxi from there to San Pedro , Peurto Banus is about 10-15 mins in a taxi, for those looking for more lively nights.
We found Kirsten and her husband extremely pleasant and helpful, from the booking to the checkout. We accidentally lost the key to the villa and were delighted with how understanding they were in coming all the way from Marbella to let us in and replacing it all within an hour! Kirsten also helped us with a parking ticket we picked up and went way out of her way to sort this for us, due to our limited Spanish. We had our full damage deposit paid back in full, within days of returning home, as we had treated the villa with the respect we would treat our own home.
I would not hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone and will definitely be back!
We are a family of 4 who have just came home from 2 weeks staying at villa margarita where we returned after a similar stay last summer. The villa was wonderfully maintained and Kirsten was more than helpful to any request that we had. Every 2 days the the caretaker would come and maintain the gardens and clean the pool to a good standard. The surrounding area is very peaceful with views over a wooded area to the rear of the property with no other homes looking into the pool area. We would definitely recommend this villa to any family looking for a quiet base to explore the beautiful Costa del sol.
