About the property

Luxury 2 bed, 2 bath garden apartment with large terrace, A/C, free golf

Luxury holiday apartment in the El Soto de Marbella golf resort includes 4 adult and 4 child swimming pools (closest to the apartment just 50 metres away) tennis, table tennis and paddle tennis courts as well as 2 boules areas, all surrounding the beautiful 9-hole (par 3) golf course. There is a golf school onsite plus a fitness centre, sauna and a massage room. Marbella's origins are as a small white-washed fishing village, but has now grown to be one of the most cosmopolitan places in southern Europe. Its historical centre has a Moorish and Andalusian flavour, with narrow streets that are decorated with flowers and invaded by scent of orange blossom making Marbella definitely worth a visit.

El Soto de Marbella is centrally located on the Costa del Sol, close to sea, mountains and all the entertainment you would need. In the neighbourhood you'll find the sandy beaches of La Cala de Mijas and Elviria and the beautiful ports of Puerto Banus or Cabopino offering water sports and outdoor activities. Nikki beach is less than 10 minutes away by car. There is an onsite clubhouse open 7 days a week. Close by is Kudu bar and restaurant with fabulous views over the Costa. The famous German tennis school is also close by where you can have a coffee or lunch overlooking the courts and again with a super view down to the coast.

The apartment is fully equipped with separate kitchen, 2 bedrooms, air con, wifi, private garden and large covered terrace.

The apartment has been fully refurbished in 2017 with all new furniture inside and out.

Lounge with large L leather sofa, double sofa bed, TV and breakfast bar to kitchen plus dining area for 6 people.

4,000 TV Channels including all Sky movies, Sky Sports, on demand etc etc.

Clubhouse is a few minutes walk across the golf course via a path. The clubhouse has a bar and restaurant and is open every day.

A car is recommended though to see the local sights. The nearest supermarkets are in Elviria which is a 7 minute drive. It is 10 - 15 Euro to Nikki Beach. If you want a taxi it is easy to order from the clubhouse 30 minutes before you need it. There are plenty at the taxi rank in Elviria to come back.

Check in - is between 4pm and 10pm. If you arrive after 10pm but before midnight there is a late arrival fee payable locally of 40 euro. If you arrive after midnight the fee is 50 euro.

If you require a mid stay change of bedding and towels and apartment clean this is available and payable locally at a cost of 60 euro.

Welcome food pack can be pre ordered at a cost of 40 euro - this is paid for when you check in direct to the agent on site. There is also a luxury welcome pack available including wine and beer for 70 euro.

If you require cot hire please let me know. This is paid for direct to the agent and is 30 euro per week

About Rob Harwood

I am originally from Liverpool now living in Cheshire where I run a property management business. .

Rob Harwood purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Rob Harwood chose Ojén

It has been my dream to own a bolthole in Spain for quite a while and after 2 years of searching up and down the coast I found El Soto de Marbella earlier this year. El Soto is an oasis of calm with spectacular views of the gardens and mountains from the apartment. With a lively and friendly Club House, gym, tennis/paddel tennis courts, boules pitch, 4 large pools and a 9 hole golf course (great for practicing your short game!) all available to those who own here it really is a fabulous place to spend some time. There is also a lovely playground for the children.

My girlfriend and I have enjoyed refurbishing the apartment and hope that you enjoy our home from home as much as we do.

Great Relaxed Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

For the perfect relaxed week away we couldn't have chose a better place to say.

The apartment was immaculate with everything you could possibly need at hand.

We stay in El Soto at least twice a year and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Great apartment, great complex, great location and very importantly great hosts.

Thanks very much Rob

Wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

We spent three weeks here in July. Everything in the apartment is as discribed. The owner has a quick response to every question you have. Check-in was done smoothly as well as check out. Thanks Rob, Peter and Jennie. We felt we were very well looked after.

El Soto is a peaceful place to spend holiday. It's worth the drive up the hill. The view is amazing. Open and beautiful.

We can highly recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate a second to book it again.

Superb break!

  • 5 of 5

What a glorious apartment! We arrived at night, it was very dark so we eagerly awaited morning so we could put the shutters up and oh my goodness the view of the sunrise from the terrace was beautiful! The apartment itself was spotless, and felt very luxurious. There was everything we needed. We visited the clubhouse several times to be warmly greeted by very polite, friendly staff. The food was lovely. The service was great. They sell water and a few other bits if you can't be bothered going to the supermarket. The grounds were well cared for and the little paths meandering through the complex were well lit. We were a party of 4 mums who were looking for total relaxation and we were not disappointed. We relaxed by the pool most days, and found the surroundings very calm and chilled. It was straightforward to get a taxi into town, we did it once but preferred the quiet chilling of the pool! We would definitely visit again, either as a couple or another girly break it certainly ticks all the boxes. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Lovely relaxing weekend away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a weekend break with some friends. Beautifully furnished apartment, recently refurbished to a very high standard. The complex is also of a very high standard, with spotlessly clean pools and very well maintained gardens. You feel secure thoughout as the whole complex is fenced and accessed through locked gates. There is a good restaurant and friendly bar in the centre of the complex where we had a good meal on our first night. On the next night we went to Elviria which is 10 mins drive or taxi where there are more restaurants and bars, also a decent sized supermarket.

A great short break! Hope to go again soon.

Absolutely lovely experience

  • 5 of 5

Booking this property was quick and painless and owner response to any query, regardless of nature, was instant and helpful. In addition to help provided by the owner there is a on site agent Jennie who is brilliant and will provide you with any advice and help you need.

Property itself is newly refurbished and spotless with all the amenities as listed and is maintained to a highest level. There is a choice of activities and number of swimming pools within beautiful gardens. Club house provides meals ,and entertainment on certain evenings and there is a couple of nearby restaurants.

Within short driving distance there is large choice of shops and restaurants and some lovely beaches too.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property to anyone looking for a lovely holiday.
