Overview

About the property

Exclusive area 150 metres from, beautiful setting with 5 shared pools, free Wifi, UK TV channels

El Rio is a 3 bedroom house which covers an area of approximately 1150 square feet, which is double the size of a good-sized two bedroom apartment. It is on an exclusive secure gated community and is in the most amazing location close to the sea, yet walking distance to the very upmarket Puerto Banus and San Pedro beach, which has wonderful beachside restaurants, Buddha beach and Mistral beach and also close to 5 star hotel Gran Hotel Guadalpin Banus. This area of is known as the exclusive "Golden Mile" which is in Marbella and surrounding areas.

The 3 bedrooms and lounge have efficient air conditioning units, which also produce heat if needed during the colder months. We have Internet television which has a huge range of channels including all UK stations, which can all be viewed on the 60" LG HD Plasma Home Cinema TV! We also offer an efficient free wifi service.

There are 5 large shared swimming pools and it is totally secure and has amazing tranquillity. The garden has a lovely new dining table and chairs on the terrace to seat 4-6 people, barbecue and sun loungers. The master bedroom also has 2 terraces. There are beautifully maintained communal tropical gardens on this estate, along with the many swimming pools. 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. There is a Tesco type supermarket nearby. Cot/High chair available upon request.

The accommodation will be cleaned prior to your stay. Towels (except beach towels) and linen are provided.

Check in from 15:00

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. Also James Hewitt, her former boyfriend, has a lovely restaurant within 5 minutes from the house. You will also be very close to the beautiful Buddha and Mistral beaches too. Puerto Banus is an exclusive marina often visited by the rich and famous. There are designer shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and beautiful yachts in the marina. In addition to the exclusive restaurants and shops, there are also more affordable shops and places to eat and drink. Las Brisas, Guadalmina and Aloha Golf Courses are all within a 10 min drive.

The Costa del Sol is one of the most beautiful areas on the Spanish coast, including the lovely Marbella, San Pedro and Puerto Banus There are lovely places to visit and shop, in addition to some beautiful beaches such as Buddha and Mistral. If you hire a car, there are beautiful mountain villages such as Ronda and Mijas, which are well worth visiting. 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. The Costa del Sol, Marbella area, was voted one of the top 3 places in the world to go on holiday to, by the New York Herald.

We can offer excursions in an air conditioned 8-seater minibus to Ronda, Gibraltar, Malaga, Granada, Seville and Jerez de la Frontera, to name but a few. pre booking us advised. Please enquire for details.

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.

If you would like to see a virtual video tour of the property, please contact me and I will send you a link.

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.

Relaxing and extremely pleasant holiday

  • 5 of 5

Super house in a lovely area with loads of rooms and ample space. Extremely comfy couches and great TV service. Stacey supplies extra towels which was fantastic with 2 boys who enjoyed the swimming pool and showering twice a day was brilliant. Great amenities in the house and comfy beds. We enjoyed the back garden too which is a lovely sun trap. The beach nearby is long but quite rough on the feet and would not be suitable for small children as the waves are quite big but our boys 11 and 14 enjoyed the swells. The restaurants are quite expensive nearby but the walk into Puerto Banus was only 20 minutes and extremely pleasant and there are more beaches with softer sand and quieter sea there and it was possible to find good reasonably priced restaurants. We particularly liked Picasso’s beside the port. We were there with other friends nearby for a wedding and the area of Puerto Banus is suitable for all ages. The only drawback is you really need a car. Although the supermarket is not too far away it’s quite a walk with heavy bags, so car recommended. Overall we had a great holiday and will hopefully be back again.

El Rio is a little Gem providing everything you need for a stress free break!

  • 5 of 5

El Rio is ideally situated for all your holiday needs be it sight seeing (with or without a car) a beach holiday or just lazing in the sun. The house has continuous hot water, comfortable beds, indeed everything for a most enjoyable stay and the small garden is a suntrap in the afternoons. We do not normally use the TV but it was a great addition during 2 days of inclement weather. All in all, the house was more than adequate for 5 adults for 2 weeks! The complex is well maintained and the pools are scrupulously clean although a little too cold for all but the most hardy in April. There are sunbeds around some of the 5 pools although I imagine they are in short supply at busier times.

There is a supermarket, with a good bakery, for everyday items about 10 minutes walk away and if you need a bigger shop then Lidl and Supersol, opposite each other on the coast road into Marbella, are recommended. The beach is 5 minutes away. It would be nearer but for construction work currently taking place on the front. Tourist attractions such as Gibraltar, Ronda and Mijas are all within an easy drive or there are buses. Puerto Banus is about a 20 minute walk and for the more energetic it is possible to walk to Marbella along the "front". There are numerous restaurants in San Pedro, Puerto Banus and Marbella. Do not be put of by appearances in Puerto Banus, the prices are competitive although avoid on Friday and Saturday evenings as "hen" nights abound. "Fantasia" within a short walk of El Rio serves very good pizzas and takeaway is possible.

Stacey is extremely efficient and answered texts within minutes. The availability of an early entry to and late exit from the property was very welcome and was just one example of how accommodating Stacey is to individual needs.

I frequently have been renting houses/villas in the Eastern Algarve and Southern Spain for 12 years and El Rio and Stacey are right up near the top of the list if not at the top. Hopefully, we will be back as there is so much more to see and do.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our family in February.

The house exceeded our expectations and met all our needs. Very close to the beach and Marbella town.

I would not hesitate to stay again what a beautiful place.

Our Brilliant Holiday Town House Stay in San Pedro / Puerto Banus. I would recommend this Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We have just got back from a brilliant holiday in a Town House in San Pedro. / Puerto Banus. The Town House made the holiday, its in a good location, and is very easy to find. There are 3 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms upstairs. Down stairs there is a wash room and toilet, a large living room / dining area. A well equipped kitchen which had all the equipment we needed. We had a problem with the lack of Hot Water, there was not enough to bathe 2 people. We sent a text to Stacey and she had an English speaking heating engineer there that same evening and when we came back from a trip to Gibraltar the next evening the Boiler had been completely re-newed. We really enjoyed our time in this Town House, and will be returning for longer next year. All windows have shutters making it feel very safe. Parking is very easy and convenient on the road outside, but there is also a dedicated parking bay inside the complex. There are swimming pools but we did not use so cannot comment. Stacey is at the other end of the phone ready and willing to sort out any problems that arise. We highly recommend this Town House and with Stacey at the other end of phone make for a very carefree vacation.
