About Tina Soderlund-Boley

We are two generations of a Finnish / Swedish / English family who decided to buy a place together where we can meet up and do what we really enjoy the most:

- socialise

- swim and soak up the sun

- golf

- relax

- explore

This will hopefully turn up to be the meeting place for us in early spring and autumn when it is dark and grey up in the Nordics.

Tina Soderlund-Boley purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Tina Soderlund-Boley chose Marbella area

We decided to buy a property on Costa del sol since we all love the climate there. Also the access to Golf courses made it an great option for parts of the family :)

Aldea blanca as such - we just loved it from first sight. To us - it has everything we want from a holiday home.

The kids loves the four pools!

Grandma / Grandad loves the green surroundings and how quiet is is despite all restaurants around it. It is beautifully kept...

Parents - golf, shopping, restaurants & bars are appealing!

A luxurious apartment set in beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic apartment situated in a quiet area with local amenities yet the lively Puerto Banus only minutes away by car. I stayed here with four children ranging from 4 to 14 in age. The apartment is very spacious with two terraces which catch the sun at different times of day. It is modern and airy and has a feeling of luxury. It has wi-fi, tv, DVDs, board games, beach toys .... home from home in many ways. There are three pools on the complex, all very nice, the two smaller pools were very quiet and we had it to ourselves on more than one occasion. There are great restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk from the apartment so there is no need to go into Puerto Banus. There is also a market there each Saturday which is worth a visit. Puerto Banus Itself is probably 20 minutes walk although just a few minutes in the car. The beach at Puerto Banus is great although there are other beaches along the coast if you hire a car.

It's not crucial to hire a car if you want to stay local although if you have young children I think the walk into Puerto Banus would get tiresome for little ones so I would definitely recommend hiring.

The owner was very helpful and there are people on hand if you need any guidance whilst you are there.

Overall a fantastic apartment offering quiet or hustle and bustle if you wanted. Would definitely recommend it.

Great apartment in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Booked this for a girls holiday. 6 adults, was a little concerned that the pull out bed may not be sufficient for 2 adults but it was more than adequate and the beds were all comfy and roomy! We all loved the apartment, the living area was ideal with a huge L shaped sofa, 2 terraced areas both with tables and chairs. Kitchen also above adequate, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer (not needed as weather was so hot!). decor was nice so did feel like a treat to be staying there. There were herbs and spices in the kitchen and cooking oils. Some herbs on the terrace also. This is a lovely complex, not your average soulful less blocks. Traditional style with different angles and terraces, all white washed with different angles framing pretty views. The landscaping around the villas and pool areas is stunning and beautifully maintained. Pools also well maintained and we had them to ourselves! A quiet area but only a 10/15 minute walk to town. Supermarket and cafes nearby, would not hesitate to recommend this place if you are visiting Puerto Banus but want a bit of comfort and style. Helpful communication from Tina. Enjoy!

WOW Factor - Fantastic Apartment / Complex

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 son’s (age 15 and 11) stayed here for 2 weeks during the first 2 weeks of August. From the moment we booked this, Tina has been very helpful and provided us with plenty of information to help us with our stay. Tina also arranged our transfers from the airport to our apartment (transfer cost 75 Euros).

From the pictures we were expecting the apartment to be spectacular and we wasn’t disappointed. Everything within the apartment is high quality, state of the art kitchen with everything you need to cook any type of meal. The balcony on the back was my favourite place to relax, whether it was for breakfast or a nice glass of wine after returning back from an evening meal.

The bedrooms are very spacious and all rooms are fitted with air con which was needed at night. My son and I have said that we have never slept so well in our lives.

We did spend a lot of time around the pools which are very well maintained along with the gardens which are very nice. All 3 pools we used had a life guard present for the majority of the day. You can get some great family pictures with a lovely background. The big pool was quite busy but we spent quite a lot of time around the pool near to the apartment which we had to ourselves quite a lot of the time.

There is a large supermarket, 5-10 minute walk away but the mini-market around the corner has a good bakery which is useful for breakfast. Also there is another complex 5 minutes away with shops and restaurants. Market day is Saturday, it can get quite busy but worth a look.

The port it worth a visit but as someone has mentioned the prices are very high on the front for average food. However the views are fantastic and its quite pleasant seeing how the other half live.

One of our regrets on this trip was not hiring a car. If you are planning to do more then one trip which requires transport, you would be better of getting a car. It cost us 75 Euros to get a return from Gibraltar, add on the airport transfers and you could hire a car for less.

I feel the apartment is in an ideal location, 5-10 minute walk into Pauto Banus or you can walk 5-10 minutes in the opposite direction to find some ‘price friendly’ restaurants. One restaurant I highly recommend is an Indian called Taj Mahal – we visited this place 3 times and they are highly rated on trip advisor.

All in all, we all had a very relaxing trip where we felt right at home 1000+ miles away. We are highly likely to be in touch with Tina again.

Great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a couple of friends in Tina's apartment while being in Marbella for a week. The apartment is spacious and perfect for 4-6 people. Its located in Aldea Blanca which is a gated community so its quiet in the evening. There is a pool 20m from the apartment (we haven't seen many people using it so it felt like it was our own private pool) and there is a bigger pool within 500m.

The apartment has everything you need and there is an AC in every room which is nice because it can be very hot in Marbella.

Tina was very helpful and knew everything we wanted to know. She provided a pick up service from the airport to the apartment so we didn't have to pick up the keys etc. which was pretty nice.

We would definitely rent this apartment again since we had a great time.

Fantastic Apartment in a great location..

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Aldea Blanca Casa for our wedding anniversary week and had a brilliant holiday mainly due to the excellent accommodation. The apartment is perfectly located; close enough to walk into Puerto Banus (10-15 minute steady walk) but far enough out to be nice and quiet in the evenings.

There is a lovely pool a few metres from the apartment which is protected by locking gates for safety. The complex has a larger pool but we never used it due to the convenience of the closer one. There is plenty of space round the pool to use the sun beds already provided by the owners, also beach towels which were great to save space in our cases.

The kitchen is very modern and has everything you need to cook a meal and eat outside on the private terrace overlooking the pool and gardens. Out front there is a BBQ provided...

Tina was very helpful with information on the apartment and surrounding areas, all you need to do is ask.

Aircon in every room which was very welcome in the warm evenings.

All in all excellent and we would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a relaxing break with all the mod cons.

It’s like having a luxury hotel suite with private pool at a fraction of the cost!

There is no need to hire a car, take the direct bus from the airport to Marbella station (6 Euros each) and a 10 minute taxi ride (20 euro) to Aldea Blanca.
