About the property

Villa in Marbessa/Elviria, Marbella, Costa del Sol, Spain - Peaceful Location, 1 Minute Walk to Beach

This beautiful villa is located in the quite neighbourhood of Marbessa only about 100m from the beach and within a minute's walk of several restaurants. It sleeps 8-10 in a total of 4 bedrooms: 3 Double bedrooms (2 en-suite), 1 with twin bunks. Master double is huge and on its own floor; it has a large ensuite shower and its own private balcony. One double has the twin bunk room adjoining and is opposite the large family bathroom. A further double has en-suite shower. There is a large bright lounge dining room (with a real fire!) with a separate kitchen. The villa is ideal for a large family or two families sharing, being in a lovely secluded location within a well-kept walled garden, but gets the sun all day long. There is a large patio next to the heated private pool, and there is a covered area with pool and table tennis tables near to the outdoor barbeque. There is a supermarket nearby but it's also only half a mile to the N340 and close to the E15.

About Evelyn

Hi, I am Evelyn and we are a family of four with two young children. We travel a lot because my husband is a consultant in the oil industry. This is our family "home" when we have a chance to stay in Marbella. Welcome!

Evelyn purchased this villa in 2010

Why Evelyn chose West Costa del Sol

We'd like to live here permanently in the future sometime!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is detached and gated and perfect for family and very close to the beach, just 100 metres.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a great time in your villa - thanks for letting us use your holiday home! Lisa McCarthy - Aberdeen

What a great place! The location close to the beach with lovely restaurants nearby was fantastic. It was over too quickly... "Uncle" Bryan from Dublin.

Had a great time - fantastic

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely spacious villa in a walled garden with a garage in a quiet neighbourhood very close to the beach and with plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. Own pool. We had 5 adults and 4 kids with us and it was great. Home from home. You probably need a car to get about if you want to sightsee or go to Marbs, but you could also get a taxi to/from Malaga if you just want to laze - everything you need for a family hoiday is within pretty close walking distance. When we couldn't quite find it on arrival, we phoned Evelyn and help was immediately available. Overall a great family holiday apartment.

2 star villa- thankfully in a 5 star location/plot

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here for a week in April- and we were extremely disappointed with the villa. Old, tired, ingrained dirt and stains, mould on bedding, highchair filthy and unusable, drawers full of sand, dirt, dust and hairs. Ants, leaks, only 1 bed room has shutters, dirty patio, dirty sun lounger cushions are just a few of the issues we encountered. Specifically asked owner if any building work was in the vicinity and she said no, villa next door but one being rebuilt. I have left a full review on another trip website with photographs. Had to wash all the bedding (after cleaning the scum and mould out if the washing machine machine). Photos are not an accurate representation if the condition of this property.

We would not stay here again if it were free- filthy.

Few positive points- nice pool and outdoor space, fab location and nice welcome hamper of all the food and drink essentials needed. Owner very nonchalant- was sorry to hear about our issues and hoped our stay improved!! Guess what- It didn't.

Shocking prices.....for 2 star accommodation. I would seek legal action if we had paid the rates they're asking for over the summer.

Great Holiday and Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday. We stopped in this villa with 3 grandkids for a week. It was lovely. Very spacious and clean and well equipped - just like the description on the web site. Also very safe and private with a nice surrounding wall. Nice garden and lots to do and the pool was fantastic, they almost lived in the pool, and the kids liked table tennis. We had a couple of small queries on arrival and Evelyn the owner was immediately available on the phone and very helpful. The beach was about 2 minutes walk and was lovely with some nice restaurants and bars to choose from. There are a couple of nearby supermarkets. We hired a car from Malaga airport and would recommend this for this location but the villa has a huge garage . We have already recommended this villa and Marbella to friends and relatives.

my family and i was on a two weeks break to mabella, honestly this is my best holiday on record as my family had fantastic time. the atmosphere was quiet and very private, the beach is just a stone throw from the villa and a brilliant view just to mention a few. the bedrooms was very clean to high standard, i couldn't fault it. and the owner was very helpful whenever we are short of information. i am definitely looking for a summer holiday next year as we couldn't have enough of our stay in mabella

What a shame about our holiday - we arrived to find a major building site next door and cockroaches (still kicking!) in the kitchen. Not a great start and both totally unexpected. The owner, Evelyn, had not told us about the demolished villa next door which was right in the middle of being rebuilt and when we contacted her during our stay to vent our disappointment she claimed to know nothing about it. She claimed the manager of the property, an English lady called Valerie, had only just told her... Our holiday was completely ruined by being woken early each weekday morning to the sound of drills, diggers and workmen - the excessive building noise carried on throughout the day save for mid-morning and lunch breaks and we were totally overlooked by the workmen whilst in the garden and pool. Worth noting, privacy in these areas will still be lost once the new villa is completed. We had two days with lorries parked outside, engines running and horns blaring to attract workers' attention - several times we had to ask them to move lorries so that we could use villa's garage. The cockroaches that greeted us on arrival were replaced by several more throughout the week in both the kitchen and one of the bedrooms - traps set by the maintenance man did not deter them, I also found one running around the dishwasher late one night which was not a pretty sight. Besides these two major problems we found the villa much older and shabbier than the internet photos portrayed. In our opinion, the manager was not doing her job regarding cleaning (kitchen cupboards, shelves and cutlery drawers were dirty and clumps of hair were found in the master bedroom, garden furniture filthy), the garage was cluttered with disused chairs and other litter, and we had to request a locksmith to adjust locks on the front door and some patio doors. TV & DVD did not work. We had a very disappointing and distressing holiday, a great shame as the villa is well-placed for the beach plus restaurants and bars and would have provided a pleasant holiday had it not been for so many problems. Evelyn, the owner, was not particularly helpful or considerate and offered a paltry 10% refund on our rental as compensation for all the problems - I will never rent from her again.
