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. It costs no more to hire a car, than it will for taxis to/from the airport. It is very easy to park directly outside the house and it is a very quiet, tranquil location, although only minutes walk from all the high life and many activities, restaurants and shops that you could ever wish for.

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.

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.

Payments via credit and debit card payments online (service fee applies) or by phone, PayPal or direct bank transfer. To avoid service fees for payments online, you can pay using your debit or credit card over the phone, or by PayPal, whilst still maintaining the security of your payment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The location of this beautiful townhouse was superb, walk out the security gate, turn right and you can see the sea within a 2 minute walking distance straight ahead. It's also ideal for the nightlife in Peurto Banus, a 10 minute walk via the sea front or few minutes in a taxi which cost apprx 8 Euros so if your sharing the cost with friends its even better



The house was absolutely beautiful. The pictures are fantastic but do not do this little gem the justice it deserves until you are physically in the house. Spacious, private, secure, modern, spotlessly clean and the 60 inch plasma with the available Wifi was excellent



The facilities were top class, there was nothing we needed that this house didn't provide. Had way more than what we expected. Great Hairdryer!.



The description of the property on the website is accurate.



The owner of this property was fantastic the whole way through since booking to arriving home. Always answered my calls or if unavailable returned my call very promptly. Really informative with the emails sent before we travelled with the maps and every possible thing you would need to know about the apartment and much more. Te "Welcome Pack" is also pack with information, detailed which is what you need but very easy to understand.

It was in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse was very spacious with a nice patio and small garden which we used every night to chill out, the property was very clean but could maybe do with a lick of paint to brighten it up, overall I would recommend it. We'll definitely go back to it again. Stacey is also very helpful with any problems incurred.

A quiet refuge in a pleasant suburban setting.

  • 4 of 5

The townhouse is located in a quiet residential area at some distance from the commercial centre. We occupied it for two weeks at the end of Feb and beginning of March. The house is probably not the best choice for the winter months. There is no central heating. The bedrooms have wall mounted AC/heating units which worked well. A similar unit in the ground floor lounge did not function. A portable electric heater was totally insufficient, and we had safety concerns regarding a portable propane heater, (most jurisdictions do not permit propane bottles indoors). As a result we found the ground floor uncomfortably cold most of the time. The bedroom windows could not be closed securely, and neither could the patio door to the back garden. Therefore, we felt we needed to close the roll-down metal shutters at night, and whenever we went out. There is no secure parking - only parking on the street on a first come basis. Walking to the marina during the day is pleasant, but takes considerably more time than stated. Going out for dinner usually involves driving on the A7, a hair-raising experience. A very large TV has more English language channels than we have ever experienced, and was an appreciated feature. There was no housekeeping or towel exchange for the two weeks we were there, but the washing machine worked well and most days were sunny enough to do the drying outdoors. A coffee maker would have been a welcome addition.

Owner's Response: First of all, I would like to thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your 4 star rating, which is very much appreciated. I'm sorry that there were areas of disappointment. I will address each point below: - There are very few homes in Spain that have central heating and the house is not advertised with it. - The AC/heating unit in the lounge is brand new and still under warranty. The problem turned out to be just a timer setting on the remote control, which I could have explained to you, had you contacted me. - Most Spanish homes have Calor Gas heaters as there is no natural gas in Spain. They are perfectly safe and work very efficiently and no doubt, would have warmed the downstairs area for you. - We do not advertise secure parking. We state that there is parking in the road outside the property. - Most people are able to walk to the marina in the time we stated. Obviously it does depend on how quickly an individual walks. - It is not necessary to drive on to the A7 to find restaurants. There are several restaurants within a 10 minute walk in each direction from the house. The details are given in the visitors information folder in the house. - We do not advertise the house with a towel exchange service. It states that the house is cleaned prior to and following your arrival. As you can see from the above, most of the issues could have been resolved if you had contacted me. It really is such a shame that you didn't. I am sorry that you were disappointed with certain aspects, but hope that you enjoyed your holiday overall.

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.
