Malaga and Gibraltar airports are both 38 miles from the property and a 40 min drive on the motorway. We can recommend independent taxi drivers, including a 7-seater taxi service for your journeys to/from the airport. We do recommend you hire a car for your stay.

Marbella - 10 min drive, Puerto Banus - 10 min walk and San Pedro - 4 min walk. 150 metres walk to the beautiful San Pedro beach, which has beach bars and restaurants including where Princess Diana and her two sons used to eat regularly.

You could also take a drive to Gibraltar (about 40 mins by car) which is very good for shopping (don't forget your passports). Tarifa, just past Gibraltar, has the finest beaches in Europe. There are many historical sights to visit and Seville is only just over a 2 hour drive away and is spectacular. You also have the Sierra Nevada ski resport, which is approx 2 hour drive and is worth visiting there in the summer as well. It is 11,500 feet high and has amazing scenery.

During the winter months, it will probably be too cold to swim in the pools as they are not heated. However, we will provide you with details of heated indoor swimming pools in the area. Depending on the climate, the pools will be closed each winter from October/November and will reopen the following March/April.

Excellent for what we wanted. 20 mins stroll along the promenade to Puerto Banus, 5 mins by car, 500 yards from San Pedro beachfront and easy to find. Lovely house with plenty of room and storage space for a family holiday. Everything needed for full self catering holiday was provided - home away from home.

Fully-equipped & comfort for perfect family hol

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleasantly surprised on arrival that the property was as advertised and fully-equipped to accommodate the size of our party. We chose this property due to its location close to San Pedro beach but also as a base from which to run day trips to Marbella, Ronda, and the countryside. Flashy Puerto Banus is a couple of minutes drive or a decent walk away for nightlife. The property is in a quiet residential area which we enjoyed for its peace and quiet. The master bedroom with ensuite is huge. The other bedrooms were set up as twin bedrooms, both spacious and sharing an ample bathroom. The lounge, front garden and upstairs terrace were good for socialising. The pool area was spotless although we spent most of our relaxing time at the nearby beach. If you're looking for a holiday rental that feels like a very nice home from home from which to explore the San Pedro/Puerto Banus area then this is a very good choice and very reasonably priced in relation to what is being offered. The owner was communicative and helpful throughout. We particularly liked sunset drinks at the nearby beach bar before heading to the town of San Pedro which has a more Spanish feel to enjoy tapas and drinks.

Great property in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this property as a short last minute break for myself and my husband. The booking process was very smooth and efficient. The house suited our needs perfectly. The facilities provided were excellent and the house was clean and well maintained. The location was great and just as described on the website. There is also a visitors folders packed with lots of local information, which was great! All in all, a great holiday and I would be very happy to return there again.

Fantastic Mini Break - highly recommend to all!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was around a 20 minute walk from the centre of Puerto Banus in a quiet residential area. This made for a nice daytime stroll along the beach front but probably not what you need at night when you are wearing heels. We did however have a very helpful taxi driver who picked up us every evening to save our feet. The apartment was certainly in a peaceful location away from all the hustle and bustle which was nice. The only thing I wish could have been a little closer was a shop. Again, it was only a 15 minute walk away but unless you have a car you may need to get a taxi back if you have a lot of shopping to buy.

The house certainly exceeded our expectations. It was very spacious (there were 5 of us staying) both in the bedrooms and in the living space. There were a couple of outside areas that we could sit in which were pleasant on an evening. The swimming pools were also much larger than we expected with the only down side, for me, was that the water was a little too cold to get in. We were warned that the electricity in the area wasn't always great and we may experience power cuts but this certainly didn't happen in the few days that we were there. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of wardrobe space (even for 5 women).

The air-con was definitely needed as temperatures were in the 30's every day and this was available in every room. There wasn't anything in particular that we required that wasn't supplied. We didn't use the washing facilities but there is a separate utility room if this is required. We also didn't use the television but the tv in there was huge so I'm sure this wouldn't disappoint.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Puerto Banus and would highly recommend this apartment for families and for groups. I would certainly consider coming back here with my family (or friends) another time.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Having never used this website before it came with the usual nerves about what to expect . However this property was lovely!! clean and bright and just as described on this website. We were a group of 6 and there was plenty of room within the property for us all . The garden area and bedroom balcony were ideal to watch the sun go down. Stacey was brilliant and very helpful in the run up and during our stay , it was so reassuring to know if there were any issues or questions I got a response straight away !

The property is within a community which was very clean and tidy and everyone was very friendly . The pools were also very nice and clean and well maintained but the beaches were a short 2 minute stroll away. We found you could choose left or right from the promenade , left taking you to Puerto banus and right to San Pedro . I was amazed how close the property was to Puerto Banus , we hadn't hired a car so had anticipated needing taxis but this wasn't the case. We did get taxis a few times but purely out of choice not neccessity and these were super reasonable around 7-8 Euro. What we liked most about the property was the area , that you were just a short stroll away from the hustle and bustle but could come back and relax and feel safe and secure in the property . I would definitely stay here again :-)

We did find there were only mini supermarkets near by but this wasn't a huge issues or inconvenience for us as we ate out a lot as there are a lot of lovely restaurants in the near by towns , so for essentials these mini marts were fine and kept us well stocked for breakfasts, light lunches etc If you need to do a larger shop there are supermarkets in Banus but would probably need a car or a taxi back , but restaurants are so reasonable it would be a shame not to try the local cuisines ! :-)

Fabulous holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great holiday in this lovely house which is in a great location. The house itself had every facility that we could wish for. We were very comfortable and the TV and wifi were great too. San Pedro is a short walk from the house and Puerto Banus is a slightly further walk (approx 20 mins) but well worth seeing. Beautiful designer shops, luxury yachts, restaurants, bars etc. See how the other half live! We would love to go back and would not hesitate to recommend.
