Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa, very well laid out for our extended family of 12. Nicola could not have been more helpful and the location was perfect for us as we did not hire cars but used an airport transfer. The local area had all that anyone would need all within 10 mins walk.

The security and safety of the villa was excellent as we had small children who were able to use the grounds safely.

I would have no hesitation in renting this villa again and will look closely at other ones under Nicola's care if I want to rent again.

All in all a great, relaxing time.

CHILL TIME

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant holiday in Elviria recharging our batteries whilst also playing a bit of golf.

The villa is in a secure complex and in an ideal location with access to the bars and restaurants of Elviria only a ten minute walk downhill and Marbella less that quarter of an hour by car.

There is a real homely feel about the villa and as there was only three of us we had more than enough space. Outdoors is fantastic with a beautiful pool and garden which is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

A very big thank you to Nicola for all of your help in ensuring we had a perfect holiday and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Relaxation at its best.......

  • 5 of 5

I would like to say a huge thank you to Nicola for providing such accurate information about this villa. What you see in the photos is exactly what you get. 13 of us stayed for a week and I must say the villa was big enough to accomodate us all. It was spacious, roomy and very stylish. The swimming pool was excellent as were the beautiful gardens and the privacy.

It's within walking distance to nearby Elviria (approx 8 mins) downhill where you can find bars restaurants and activities . The Playwright restaurant being a favourite of ours. Also we had hired a car and visited Marbella and also Ronda. A visit to Ronda is a must. It was absolutely breathtaking!

One week stay was just too short. Maybe we will go for longer next time. We would have no hesitation in recommending Powderham Villa and also Nicola who was more than helpful .

Thank you Mr Gundersen for letting us stay in your wonderful villa.

The best Place!

  • 5 of 5

Me and 10 of my friends had the best time while staying at Powderham this weekend!

We enjoyed all the luxuries this wonderful place had to offer: Playing table tennis, swimming in the pool and especially relaxing in the outdoor hot tub!

We also loved that it was such a short Walking distance to the beautiful beach of Elviria and that Marbella and Puerto Banus were so easy accessible by car.

The house is very spacious, well equipped and there were no problem having a barbeque even for our group of 11 adults.

The villa manual was of great use and comprehensive even for us Swedes :-). I can't think of anything in the listed description of this rental that wasn't correct. The property was Clean, well maintained and the customer service were the best one could ask for.

We will definitely be returning when we come to Marbella next time!

Thank you Nicola for everything!

Great family villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at the villa. It was clean and very well equipped. Pool/beach towels are provided. We enjoyed the table tennis and pool table. It caters for children with their bedroom having lots of toys, books and a den. Outside the climbing frame was a big hit with them, Buckets and spades and armbands can all be found down by the pool. The gardens and pool are well maintained. We would definitely recommend this villa.
