About Tracy Mellor

My husband and I love travelling all over the world but feel particularly at home in Puerto Banus. We stayed at Villa Pandora and loved it so much we bought it!!

For us, it's our home away from the winter cold of the UK and we are happy to share it with you for you to enjoy a private villa in the sunshine during your hard earned holidays.

Tracy Mellor purchased this villa in 2013

Why Tracy Mellor chose Marbella

For us, Puerto Banus is a fascinating place to stay. The port is full of boats, fast cars and designer shops and spending your time with a coffee people watching is great fun.

It comes alive at night and has something for everybody - great restaurants, chill out bars, tub thumping music bars and night clubs.

Best bit about Pandora itself? It's a 5 minute walk away from the port and provides peace, quiet and complete, unoverlooked privacy whilst still being on the doorstep of the action.

The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and Marbella itself (great for shopping!) is only 10 minutes by car.

Being the Costa del Sol of course, the weather is lovely all year round. Even during the winter months, the temperature is often in the mid 60's.

Come see for yourself!!

What makes this villa unique

There were a few things that stood out about this property for us but without a doubt the main one was the enormous roof terrace.

Its an absolute sun trap, getting the sun all day long.

It affords an awesome view of the mountains and valleys.

Its perfect for a drink watching the sunset pre dinner.

Its a great space for entertaining and partying.

The other big pull for us with Pandora was the pool terrace because it is completely private. When you're sunbathing by the pool you cannot be seen by anybody - you could sunbathe in the nude if you so wished!! Although the pool man does visit once a week :-/

My husband loves the sports bar right at the end of our street too :-)

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Fantastic Holiday Again"

This is the second time and again we had another fabulous stay. The Villa has everything you need and Pandora is spacious and fully equipped. There are 3 good bedrooms and the bathrooms are great with very powerful showers. The inside is well equipped with all kitchen facilities and the outside has a fantastic pool and large seating area. We spent a lot of our evenings by the pool having a barbie which was great. There are also some great restaurants nearby and fantastic shopping facilities.

The famous port is also a five minute walk away if you fancy a bit of retail therapy or a nice meal out or nightlife.

This really is a fabulous spot. We are now booking for next year.

"WOW! HUGE roof terrace, spacious villa, fab location"

We have stayed in this villa four times and have already re-booked for September and November - you have to book early as it gets full very quickly.

The villa is clean and ready for us whatever time we get there.

The villa is really spacious and has a lovely light and open feel to it. It is only ten mins walk to the Marina, to the beach, to the supermarket and even less to the fab tourist market on Saturday mornings.

I'm going with girlfriends for my 50th in Feb cos its perfect for a healthy retreat with the sauna and Jacuzzi bath and plenty of room on the sun terrace if you want to hire the local beautician (number in the villa) for a massage. Not to mention the night life in the port

#"fantastic villa"

We booked the villa for my sisters hen do and it was totally perfect. If you book I would highly recommend booking Debs to come and cook for you. Fanatic BBQ food! The villa is a great location. Short walk to to the beach. Try Gios round the corner for breakfast.

The roof terrace is HUGE far bigger than it looks on the photos and the views are to die for. We spent each night up there before going out with a glass of champagne.

I highly recommend this place.

Fabulous villa

  • 5 of 5

Villa Pandora is fabulous, there was 7 girls ( age range 25-45 ) and the villa was perfect. Plenty of space and different seating areas, we loved the roof terrace with amazing views and a lovely shaded dining area. Plenty of space and sunbeds around the pool for all of us.

The villa was exceptionally clean and well equipped , lovely towels even for the pool. A large supermarket was a short walk and a few bars and nice restaurants were close by ( can recommend the Italian ) It took us around 15-20 mins to walk to Ocean Beach Club and La Sala & port area. Its location couldnt be better as its in a lovely quiet residential area with gorgeous views yet close to everything you need.

I cannot recommend Tracy the owner & Charlie the manager enough for their service and help. We organised a minibus transfer to & from the airport through Tracy and was very efficient and stress free.

We stayed 3 nights and this was definately not long enough, all of us wish we had stayed longer just to chill around the pool and have tapas on the roof terrace. Puerto Banus is a lovely place but the Villa just made the trip amazing. Cant recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa located close to all amenities. We did not require a car, walked to supermarkets,restaurants etc. A very short 10 min walk to the main harbour area.

The villa was clean ,secure and equipped with virtually everything you could need. Great satellite tv! Loads of outside space, nice sized pool which is completely private. The icing on the cake was the fantastic views on the roof terrace . Booking was very easy and thanks to Tracy for being so flexible when we had to alter our plans slightly. Hope to return very soon and would highly recommend this villa.

Absolutely outstanding!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Get away trip with 5 girls and we barely left the villa the whole time we were there as it was so beautiful! From booking the owner Tracey could not be more helpful and very responsive and full of useful information. Charlie the property manager did our grocery and alcohol shop for a small fee and she must have read our minds as got everything perfect and more - definitely worth doing! Location very quaint and peaceful with amazing views and local restaurants and shops. 10-15 min leisurely walk down to the port and beach. 3 spacious bedrooms and bathrooms so ideal for groups. Fully equipped kitchen, tv, internet, BBQ, music docks but our favourite part was the roof terrace were we spent 90% of our time drinking wine and bathing in the sun! Tracey even offered to allow us to stay longer when our flights got cancelled with Monarch airlines going bust which helped relieve some stress! Highly recommend and hope to return again next year!

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our holiday in Puerto Banus having stayed at Villa Pandora.

The villa was superb in every way, it felt like being at home (but with the sun!) The pool was great and to top it all off the roof terrace with its views was magnificent.

Would highly recommend this villa, the booking with the owner was easy and they provided us with all the information (and more) that we needed.

To top it off we were met at the villa by the property manager who was friendly and really helpful.

Absolutely stunning villa, definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, this has got to be one of the nicest villas I have ever stayed in! The views are next to none and it's within walking distance of everything. It's beautifully decorated inside and out and was the perfect place for our holiday. Tracy was extremely helpful when we were organising everything, which made the whole experience much more enjoyable and stress free. Overall our stay was amazing and we're already planning our next stay for 2017!

Luxury and Peace

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four guys who stayed here for 1 week, we had a great time and found the Villa quite easily. The villa is well equiped and the pool was warm and clean, the roof top patio is fantastic. There is a supermarket nearby and a great tapas bar beside it. The owner was very helpful and we could recommend it and will stay there again. It is about 15 minutes walk into the centre of Puerto Banus. Villa was quiet and secure. First Class !

All the following beaches of Puerto Banus area are a 5-10 minute walk away:

Nueva Andalucía Beach

Levante Beach, also known as Puerto Banus beach Awarded a prestigious Blue Flag for its water quality, cleanlinesses and facilities.

La Sala beach, one of the coolest and most exclusive places to be in Puerto Banus, swimming pool, private beach, parties and restaurant.

And, of course, the world famous Ocean Beach Club with champagne celebrations that are organized during the summer months.


Malaga airport is approximately a 40 minute drive away. Car hire is not essential whilst staying at Villa Pandora as everything you could need is within walking distance.

We can arrange airport transfers and, should you want it, car hire.


The exclusive, designer, celebrity town of Puerto Banus is a 5 minute walk from Pandora. The picturesque Marbella is only a 10 minute drive away or why take an hours stroll to it along the beach front?

The fantastic shopping of Malaga is about 40 minutes away by car as is the tax free shopping of Gibraltar.

The beautiful, very Spanish Seville is only a 2.5 hour drive away whilst Granada is slightly closer at 1 hour 50 mins.

You could even go skiing for the day - be in Sierra Nevada in 2 hrs!

Further Details:

Everything you need is on your doorstep at Pandora. Only a couple of minutes walk away there is a Supermarket, a Barclays bank, a hair and beauty salon, an 'everyday' Italian restaurant and an elegant, classy Italian restaurant, a sports bar, a gym, a spa, even a fish and chip shop!

A short drive away is the large shopping centre of La Canada - where you can buy everything home and fashion wise.

The quaint and picturesque streets of Marbella are also only a 10 minute drive away - why not enjoy the restaurants around the beautiful and famous Orange Square?

For the active - golf courses abound in this area of the world! Or why not saddle up and discover the hills of Andalucía with a horse riding trek in Monda - very close to Puerto Banus. Or, at the water sports centre try your hand at jet skiing, wakeboarding or just a leisurely dolphin watching experience?

There are not many places on this earth where one has the option of going to the beach for the day or donning skis and boots and hitting the slopes.
