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.

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!

A beautiful villa in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Villa Paradiso for a week and couldn't have asked for more. We were in a party of 10 ranging from 1 year old to 65 years. The villa was ideal as there was enough space for each family to have their own privacy whilst staying together.

The villa was exceptionally clean and very well-maintained. Everything that we needed was provided including travel plugs, towels including beach towels and plenty of toys and games for the kids to enjoy which made packing much easier.

Susie was excellent throughout the booking process, in the run up to our holiday and during our stay. She was always on hand for any questions we had and could not do enough to make sure our stay was enjoyable for all.

The village itself is stunning and we particularly enjoyed the river run - a fantastic experience.

Thank you so much for everything - we hope to stay again one day.

Beautiful, just as promised

  • 5 of 5

The villa is gorgeous and very well appointed. There were 12 of us, we cooked quite often and there was enough kitchen equipment, plates and glasses for all of us, which I find quite unusual in a villa. The maxi bar is a fabulous idea, even though we went straight to the supermarket and didn't expect to use it, we still found ourselves needing things that were supplied in the bar. The villa is situated in a lovely quiet street with great access to the village.Susie was extremely helpful both during the booking process and whilst we were there. I would definitely go again.

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Were do I begin?.........

What a wonderful holiday! We travelled to Benahavis and have just enjoyed a week at Susie's villa as a party of 11 (3 families) with ages ranging from 7 to 53 - each and every one of us were blown away with the stunning villa and its stunning surroundings. It is truly a home from home with Susie ensuring you are short of nothing during your stay. We loved the maxi-mini bar and would recommend this to anyone staying at the villa. The decor, space, lovely bathrooms, kitchen, pool, garden and fabulous blaconies with exceptional views all are first class! I could go on (& on & on!!). Susie is an excellent owner and very helpful, always there at the end of a whatsapp message to answer any queries or requests.

The village itself is a wonderful place with many restaurants and bars where you are spoilt for choice. We enjoyed a few tasty lunches and evening meals in the village!

The men & boys loved the mountain walks, fishing and especially the river run whilst us ladies enjoyed the ice cold cava, sunbeds and pool!

I cannot recommend Susie, the stunning villa, the area and all it brings to your holiday enough - We have never experienced holiday blues like this after a holiday before! xx

Our 3rd stay at this lovely Villa (May 2016)

  • 5 of 5

A blissful week spent at the lovely Villa Paraiso and the village of Benehavis.

May 2016 was our 3rd stay at the villa and we love it’s charm. It’s location, at the lower end of the village, means that it is the first building that takes your eye when driving up to Benehavis and when you arrive and open up the door to enter it’s bright generous spaces you can feel ‘right at home’ very quickly. With a fabulous big kitchen and lovely bedrooms that open up onto a large balcony, accommodation in the villa is generous in the extreme and the garden is terrific for spending sunny days in, with your own heated pool to boot!

Whether using the villa as a place to chill out and relax or as a base for heading out on day trips to Ronda, Gibraltar, or the white villages, etc then Villa Paraiso is an excellent choice. Susie has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the fridge and kitchen cupboards are well stocked too so you are up and running as soon as you arrive (see her ‘Maxi-Bar’ list for details).

The village of Benehavis, as well, is excellent. It’s little streets are full of good quality restaurants and bars. We tried Los Abiancos, La Torre, Rufinos, & La Escalara for meals this year, Chicos for drinks & tapas (a must), and we always went to Las Canas Viejas for breakfast. All were very pleasant indeed.

There are other activities in and around Benehavis. Make sure you spend time just walking the village and the surrounding area to appreciate the landscape that it is set in (Susie has a list of all the local walks in her information folder). The area is full of wildlife and flowers and check out the nearby river and the rocks that the locals (and visitors) use for exciting ‘river-run’ activities.

We always enthuse about Villa Paraiso and Benehavis when telling our friends and family about our visits there and we hope we can return for another visit in the future.
