Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was the first holiday for five years with family. I couldn't have picked better. the place was wonderfully situated, it was clean, spacious, BBQ, near shops and supermarket, a little beach - not that there was much need as the pool was so lovely.

Just a fantastically restful week, and will definitely be booking again. the agent was also excellent.

Couldn't recommend it more!

Great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from Casa Mara on a family holiday. 1st impression of the villa was fabulous! Owner was great with communicating with us & gave us all information needed. There was 3 local supermarkets all in about 10mins walk of villa & 2 larger ones a short 10min drive away, we actually went nearly everyday for fresh food to the local supermarket

. The villa was like home from home with everything you need.

Like 1 of the reviews says it just needs a few repairs here & there just like home would & a few thing are looking a little tired but it does look like the owner is starting to renew things. The shower room was clearly brand new & was lovely!! You don't exactly need a car as lots of things are close by but if your wanting to venture further afield then I would recommend to do so. All in all couldn't fault it & would defiantly recommend & return to Casa Mara, maybe next year!

Great villa, fab location

  • 4 of 5

Great villa, stayed for 2 weeks in July with 4 adults and 2 children (1.5yrs & 3yrs).

Everyone had a great time, short walk to local supermarket which you can get your everyday basics from, and about a 10min drive to local lidle which was great VFM. We didn't hire a car but be aware of local cab services, we hadn't stayed in a villa in Spain before only hotels and wasn't aware that the taxis will only collect you if you are in their area, unfortunately the taxi driver didn't tell us this on our first venture to the lidle and the lady at the taxi office just kept putting the phone down on us when we called for taxi to get back to the villa, luckily a lovely Spanish lady spotted us stranded with a trolley of shopping and helped us get a taxi.

The villa itself was great. Very clean with all the luxuries you would have in your own home. Garden toys were most appreciated and the kids loved them.

Would highly recommend a visit to simbads restaurant by the beach about a 7min walk from the villa, great setting and very child friendly. Food was amazing.

Would advise the owners to leave out a visitors book that everyone can write in at the end of their stay with comments and top tips, and putting together a ring binder with villa / local information that guests can refer such as alarm instructions (to refer back to as was a lot of information to take in when you have just arrived after traveling with 2 babies) and list of local restaurant with directions of how to get to them etc.

There was a few running repairs needed to the villa but just small bits that you would have in your own home.

All in all a lovely villa in a quite area with Good local amenities and no need for car hire. Great holiday

Excellent Service, Perfect Villa, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this villa with three friends, It was everything we could have hoped for and more. It's plenty large, has a fantastic private/non overlooking pool (with optional water volleyball facilities which we loved), great cooking facilities, sun beds and fantastic entertainment systems for the nights in. It's close to a small supermarket and the sea (with lovely beach restaurants). Marbella central is a short car/taxi drive away so close enough to the action but in a quiet upmarket area. The owner was excellent in communication with their property manager on hand to give us some great tips & help with any problems (not that we had any).

We had a wonderful holiday in Casa Mara. The villa is beautiful, spotlessly clean and well maintained. The garden and pool are very private and catch the sun all day.

There are some lovely restaurants and a small supermarket within walking distance. Don't know what more you could ask for for a family holiday.
