Guestbook comments from the owner

To get a flavour of the holiday you can look forward to, please see many of our lovely testimonials on our website: www.paradisemarbella.com.

PM, Newcastle. What can I say, other than totally gobsmacked by the entire place and great value for money. The villa is superb - the website is extremely accurate, what you see is what you get! Pure luxury and exactly what we were looking for. Everything from the towels to the bedding are top quality. We instantly fell in love with the place and were so glad that it was available for our week. We were that impressed we did not pick up our deposit - we just left it with Susie for our next visit which was booked while staying at Villa Paraiso - roll on September!! Book early, you do not want to miss out on this one I promise!!

JH, Derbyshire:Superb villa, excellent location, great amenities. Benahavis is a wonderful little village and brilliantly located. All in all it’s a lovely villa in a lovely village in a lovely part of the world.

Wonderful family break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa as a family of 10 with 4 children. The entire group loved the villa and the kids had a great time in the pool, which had the added bonus of being heated. There were plenty of toys and DVDs for the kids and the Maxi bar got us through the first night and a few days after.

Susie was amazing and easy to communicate with during our stay.

The village of Benahavis is amazing with lots of restaurants. Location is 20mins from Marbella and is worth visiting.

My brother and I did the river walk on our last day. This was a highlight of the holiday and is definitely recommend.

Would definitely recommend.

Paradise - the Villa - the Town - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa with all the amenities you could wish for – it felt just like home!

Susie, the owner, really looks after you before the holiday, with lots of useful information – even pictures of the road signs and supermarkets to look for on the way from the airport! On arrival she talked us through lots of useful local information and has gone to a lot of trouble to type it out so you can read it at your leisure.

The pool was heated to 31 degrees and the gardens are well kept, with some fruit, which you can pick. The Maxi-Bar really is well stocked at normal supermarket prices.

Their website gives lots of details, which you can trust, because they are all true, so I don’t need to repeat them here.

The street leading up to the fabulous town of Benahavis is very steep and tests your fitness, then continues as a gentle slope up to the village centre, where there are lots of bars and restaurants.

Our group of 3 adult couples plus 6 youngsters ranging from 6 to 18 all thought this was an amazing place to stay and so much better than a hotel. Even our refundable deposit was returned quickly to us! Thanks Susie!

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

A great house with 6 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, big kitchen and best of all; a lot of different seating options out in the garden and balcony. We were 10 people in our party and we went there to celebrate my 50th birthday. When we came to the house, the owner Susie, had decorated the entire kitchen for the birthday celebration! It was lovely! Such a personal welcome! Susie also guided us through everything we needed to know about the house, the village, things to do, what to see etc. Susie's maxibar was filled with everything we needed for the first couple of days. Food, snacks, drinks, ice cream...you name it. No need to rush to the supermarket :-) She lives in the village, so if we needed anything she would be there in a few minutes. We felt really safe and very well taken care of.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with other family members and no one had a bad thing to say. The only complaint that any of us had was that we couldn't stay for longer. The villa is lovely and in super location with plenty of views to enjoy. There is plenty of space within the villa to get away from the rest of the group to relax in the peace and quiet. There is plenty of seating areas throughout the villa and around the pool. It is a short 5-10minute walk in to the village where there is plenty of places to eat/drink. Would recommend doing the river walk which takes about an hour (5mins from villa)

Lovely Villa in Lovely Village

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great stay at this wonderful villa. It is ideally situated on the edge of the village. The house and surroundings were beautiful. Very clean and well equipped, a real good quality "home from home".

The heated pool, terraces and gardens were great for a relaxing day.

All the outside seating areas were really appreciated with lots of choice for sun or shade.

Susie the owner had everything covered with lots of info and advice.

Many basics were supplied in addition to the renowned "maxi bar" which came in handy at supermarket prices.

This is the best equipped villa we have ever been to and we would thoroughly recommend the villa and the village without hesitation. Wish we were still there!

Travel:

If you are here just to chill and take life easy then it is easily possible to manage a stay in Benahavis without a car due to the amount of amenities within the village and our "maxi bar" and on-line shopping options! Then just travel by taxi for the few trips out, however it usually proves more cost effective to have a hire car for the whole of your stay.
