Wow, what a gem.

5 of 5
Having stayed in Marbella many times in a range of holiday homes across the coast this has to be the best by far. We plan to definitely stay again. The location is perfect, 2 mins walk to the main promenade with all the restaurants and bars you will ever need. To be honest to many to choose from. Also with a large SuperCol Supermarket across he road you will never be in need of anything for a truly wonderful stay. The apartment is spread over 3 large floors and fully stocked for all your needs. The downstairs included a dining area, lounge, balcony with small sitting area and sun lounger and kitchen area. The kitchen included everything from a dishwasher, washing machine, dolce gusto coffee machine, toaster and all the equipment and essentials you need. The next floor included the 2 large double rooms both ensuite and lots of towels and bedding, and the 3rd floor roof terrace had a large outside space to sit relax, sunbath or enjoy the hot tub in a very private setting. We visited in January with our 1.5yr old and the biggest benefits for us included - great communication with Igor before we arrived, he even met us and showed us around when we arrived, fast reliable WiFi, artificial glassed balcony and sun terrace for the little to play safe, free underground car park with your own space and the location is perfect to fully enjoy a Marbella break. Thank you Igor and looking forward to returning
