About Jane Gould

I am lucky enough to be the resident owner here at 'Casa Madden'. I live here all year round, together with a few 4 footed best friends. I really enjoy welcoming guests to the house. It's great to see how much people relax here and enjoy the garden, the natural surroundings and of course, the local scenic wooden dune walkways and beaches. I am always on hand to share local info about restaurants, travel etc so guests get the most from their stay. I regularly hear things like 'I wish we were staying longer' and 'we will be back!' which really says it all.

Jane Gould purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Jane Gould chose Marbella area

The first time I entered 'Casa Madden' I just knew I had to make it mine - it was love and I was spellbound. Dilapidated and in need of much care but after nine months of refurbishment work the first guests arrived and ever since, everyone who has stayed, has enjoyed the same 'Casa Madden' magic that I felt that first day. Set amongst pines with nothing but nature and the Mediterranean Sea to look at, no buildings to spoil the view and the wonderful mountains behind - it has the 'wow' factor. The garden has a tropical feel and blends into the natural surroundings here. It's so peaceful and uplifting - quite addictive really!

What makes this apartment unique

If you want to really 'chill' and enjoy time out in a lovely home next to nature and the beach yet be in easy reach of Marbella and walking distance to local Cabopino marina with great choice of local restaurants then 'Casa Madden' is for you. This is a real paradise that you may want to keep a secret. The newly completed scenic wooden walkways through the dunes to the local beach are a plus and as on site owner I am discreetly at hand to help with local knowledge questions.

Lovely getaway location

  • 4 of 5

Nice place, small but has everything and spotless. The roof terrace is a great space to relax even in the evenings. The location is beautiful, backing on to the sand dunes nature reserve and till only a few minutes from the main activity centres.

A perfect place to enjoy your Kindle and Martini & Lemonade

  • 5 of 5

Our 2-week holiday at Casa Madden’s patio apartment was the most relaxing holiday ever. The apartment is safe, clean, quiet and equipped just as described. The bed is very comfortable and the walk in shower is fantastic. It’s a short walk to the sandy beach and local restaurants. The owner Jane is a wonderful lady, who did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. And we love Beau (the friendliest dog on earth), who came to “check-up” on us from time to time. (Alex – the cat prefers his own company:))

Thank you for looking after us Jane…Your Casa truly is a very special place!

We will be back...

Relaxing, comfortable and idyllic

  • 5 of 5

Jane is so welcoming and makes you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive to when you leave. The apartment is private, secure, extremely clean and well equipped.

Short walk to the beach and restaurants and within a few miles of the airport, Puerto Banus and Marbella. Perfect for a romantic getaway.

Will definitely visit Jane again.
