About Terry Hannam

My wife and I have owned our apartment at Aldea Blanca since 2001. We fell in love with the complex after looking at many other apartments. Not only because of it's position beautiful sub-tropical gardens and pools but because its a well run and established community. With some owners living here on a full time basis. Easy excess to all amenities and beaches. Since retiring from business we divide our time between our home in Yorkshire and Nueva Andalucia.

Terry Hannam purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Terry Hannam chose Marbella area

After a lot of research we decided to purchase our apartment because of position to Puerto Banus and the coast.Knowing that the community at Aldea Blanca is well run with many residents live there on a permanent basis.Superb local facilities with everything in easy walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

Small private garden covered dinning terrace with table and seating for six persons. Community WIFI.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were surprised by location and atmosphere of the apartment. Well maintained sub-tropical gardens. Easy local shopping for groceries. Beautiful beach under 3km. VV, Netherlands.

We had a smashing holiday at Aldea Blanca/Apartment was spotless and fresh decor. It felt like home. Web photos don't do it justice. We used both patios at different times of day. We will be back. RH, Belfast NI.

The apartment has two really nice patios. We had dinner and sat out until 11.00 at night. Even had toys for our kids. Pools and gardens are fantastic. SP, The Wirral.

Apartment Spotless and Fresh felt like a home from home Fantastic gardens and Pools. Ralph Belfast.

Soacious 2 bed apartment Great location walking distance to Port.Always quiet at night. James UK

First class

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately for us we were all poorly, but the apartment was superb with an exceptional welcome pack.

Thank goodness it was such a lovely environment ,as we weren’t able to go out and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

We would definitely recommend Terry’s villa and hopefully return under better circumstances.

Fantastic apartment in beautiful grounds

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment, clean and very well equipped, a home from home. We arrived to find an amazing welcome pack to get our holiday off to a great start, wine, bread, milk, fruit, yogurts, cheese, water to name just some of it.

The grounds are very well looked after and just beautiful for a relaxing holiday.

The pools are great too with well kept surrounding gardens. Nice to have a choice of pools too.

A lovely walk into Puerto Banus using the route via the underpass described in the information pack.

All in all a great place to stay for a relaxing holiday.

Thanks Again

Simon and Sharon

Fantastic apartment, perfect for our needs.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this great apartment which was just perfect for our group of 3 adults and 1 child.

On arrival we were amazed at the welcome pack - a fully stocked fridge which even included 2 bottles of white wine, a bottle of cava and a bottle of red, marvelous start to the holiday!

The apartment itself had everything we needed for our weeks stay where we mixed self catering and eating out.

Terry was great right from our initial enquiry to refunding our deposit promptly when we got home. We met him at the apartment when he came with a blanket for the travel cot (hope your wife had a great birthday!).

The grounds around the apartment are immaculately kept and the pools are just great, we used the big pool as there was a shallow area for our grandson, it never got busy and we always found shade to sit under.

Good supermarkets near by for topping up the fridge.

We wholeheartedly recommend this apartment.

Seriously impressed

  • 5 of 5

The villa was clean, quiet, great location. The fridge and cupboards were stock with things you have at home - which was such a lovely touch. There were 3 bottles of wine - red, rose and white. Croissants.... the list goes on. I would highly recommend this to people who are wanting a relaxing break. Old town Marbella only a short taxi ride away is worth a visit

Location was good with local amenities never too far away. The upkeep of the gardens around the pool areas was to a high standard and added to the whole experience. Would i take the family again? Most definitely!!
