About Martin Bowker


We are a married couple in our 40's with one 2 year old little boy

We live in Cheshire UK

We own our own company and have worked very hard in order to purchase our fantastic second home in the Marbella area of Spain

It really is a second home and not a mass rental property. We are very selective and only want to let it for a small number of weeks per year in order to help cover the high running costs

You will not be disappointed with our home and we wish you a fantastic holiday

best regards

Martin,Kay and Beau

Martin Bowker purchased this villa in 2014

Why Martin Bowker chose Benahavís

We fell in love with the property the day we viewed it, last year. We had looked at 33 villas over a 4 day period and this was the one for us.

The original owner had bought it as an investment when it was built in 2007 but never lived in it, so when we took possession it was as new

The area is quiet and secure as its located on a manned gated community but its within 10 minutes of every amenity you would require

The villa is only 40 minutes from the airport and only 4.5 hours door-door in Cheshire which allows us to have short long weekends

What makes this villa unique

The villa is tranquil with the most beautiful views you could imagine

We have both Golf and beaches on our doorstep yet we are set amongst the rolling golf courses in the area.

We have rented properties in the past and I know its a gamble,as photos can often make somewhere shabby look great. This actually happened to a family last summer that rented a villa near to us. They turned up to non matching bedding that was psychedelic in colour and didn't even fit the beds. The towels were not fit to dry his dog-as he put it and the furniture was falling to pieces. He had paid top money and it was a complete nightmare. As they looked around our villa his wife started to cry. Subsequently they have just come back from having the best holiday at our villa.

Surprised? We think you'll be delighted

Total and Utter Luxury

  • 5 of 5

This villa is without comparison. The location and view is breathtaking . The villa itself is just stunning , with every luxury and comfort you could wish for . It is incredibly tastefully decorated , stylish , modern and so well designed . Incredibly well equipped for any profile of guest . With huge apologies to all other villas I've stayed in I can honestly say this is without a doubt the most beautiful villa I've ever stayed in. Easily worth the money , I would stay there again without hesitation. Martin is a very warm and welcoming host .

Beautiful Benahavis

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property. We stayed as two families of four with plenty of room for all of us. Martin, the property owner and our host, was always on call and happy to help with every little detail.

The house itself is furnished to very high standards throughout, from super linens and towels through to a well equipped kitchen and a well thought out downstairs area near the pool.

We loved the music system which is linked to almost every conceivable room and outside area.

The garden and pool is south facing so if you're a sun worshiper this is the place. There's also plenty of shaded areas if you need a break. Also there's a great sense of seclusion because the thoughtfully designed garden creates a very private space.

We couldn't really recommend this place any higher and were almost hesitant to submit this review because it could reduce our chances of getting a rebooking! But that would do a disservice to Martin.

Gracias Martin and family.

Absolutely stunning property with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

I must say the villa exceeded all our expectations. It was large, clean, modern and so well equipped- it really was a home from home.

I would recommend the villa to anybody thinking about booking a holiday there.

The location is perfect with easy access to the Golf or beaches as well as Puerto Banus, Marbella or Estepona.

There are many Restaurant's nearby- and Kay had recommended Ramos which is no more than a 3 minute drive away- it was the best Restaurant we visited.

Thank you Martin and Kay for all your help and advice, we will be seeing you again next year.

Beautifully designed property

  • 5 of 5

Our first impression of the property was how big it was, but it is so well designed and flows so well we soon got used to it. The bedrooms stay nice and cool downstairs and the large living areas upstairs are very comfortable. The large covered seating area was used a lot! The sofas are comfortable and there's always a lovely breeze when it's too hot to sit out. So nice to sit there with a coffee reading and admiring the view, it must have the best view around. Martin was quick to reply to a couple of problems we had, even late on a Saturday night which was very reassuring.

We went to Benahavis quite a few times to eat which is lovely and only 15 minutes away. There are many good restaurants nearby. It was unusual to eat next to the A7 motorway which is quite noisy, but don't be put off because there are some good restaurants down there. Restaurant Aba which is a Vietnamese fusion restaurant had excellent food. We bought great steak at the supermarket and barbecued it at the villa so didn't try out the steak restaurants.

We had a very relaxing holiday in villa which offered everything.

The villa was very spacious, immaculately clean and tastefully furnished. The gardens and outside space were very well appointed and well maintained. The flowers were lovely. As we were arriving very late, the owners arranged for us to be supplied with groceries and drink - even some beer! I would not hesitate in recommending the villa.
