About Monica Olsson

We are a couple with two teenage boys who enjoy culture, travel and good food.

Monica Olsson purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Monica Olsson chose Guadalmina

My wife is from Argentina so it is nice to have a holiday home in Spanish-speaking country. Also the Costa del Sol sunshine makes Marbella our ideal spot for holiday including in winter.

What makes this apartment unique

The exceptional level of care of the tropical gardens and swimming pools and the sensation that you are isolated from the rest in your own little paradise. Also going for a walk in the gardens at night (superb illumination layout) or a swim in one of the 3 pools and also the quality of finishing of the apartment with its secluded terrace is what made us fall in love with the place.

Another point is technological with WIFI fast broadband Internet in all rooms of apartment as well as Apple TV and access to Netflix & HBO with 1000s of free movies/TV series and TV sets in all rooms.

Extremely well presented apartment with excellent facilities!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and tidy and equipped with all the facilities you could wish and more, including Apple TV and X Box. Situated in a fantastic complex with gated and manned security, beautiful gardens and a decent swimming pool. The landlord was also very responsive to all our needs and attended to matters promptly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Nigel and glad you enjoyed the facilities and the responsiveness. Don't forget that there are three swimming pools so you are not limited to only one style. We have also now a safe box in main bedroom for our clients' valuables. Hope to see you again. Monica

The apartment was well appointed. Good space and great amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The communication was excellent. The place was clean and bright. The Tvs with apple and Netflix was a god send.

You will need a car staying here as there is lots to see and do in the local and wider area.

We would thoroughly recommend this as a place to stay. The pools and ground were really well kept. Watch out for the minimal amount of subversion and people putting towels out when they are not using them at the time.

This was annoying although didn't spoil anything. There are 2 beds in the apartment anyway if you need them.

Thank you Monica and DAVID.

Owner's Response: Thank you Marc and it was a pleasure having you as a guest. I think you meant lounge chairs if you need them (hope you didn't take the beds to the pool :-) We also leave a selection of beach toys and items for our guests to use freely. We have also now added Netflix through Apple TV in 2nd bedroom and there is also a safe box in master bedroom. Hope to see you again.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful Tropical garden

  • 4 of 5

We spent one week in David and Monicas Apartment in El Campanario. The surroundings are absolutely beautiful with tropical plants, ponds and 3 pools. Nice area for walks too. The pools are not heated, and it was pretty cold to swim in april. Would have been nice with at least 1 heated pool. David was very service minded and answered my questions immediately. The Apartment was not very fresh and modern, but the layout was great. Had everything we needed and more. The wifi was great both inside and on the terrace. There was minimal sun on the terrace. I guess that's fine in the summer, but could have been nice with some sun rays in the spring. Overall a lovely Place. We would love to come back.

Owner's Response: Hi Mari, The terrace is south-facing so has plenty of light coming in all day and a bit of shade is important for the hotter months between May and September as you can imagine. The weather was unusually poor during your stay (exceptional in Marbella!) but usually it is fine to use the pools in April. Not sure what you mean by "not very fresh and modern" as the apartment has cream-coloured marble floors, an extensive sofa with chaise longue position as we like them nowadays, Nespresso machine, bay windows, en-suite master bedroom, all rooms in white/cream tones, flat screen TVs in living room (50" screen) and bedrooms with Netflix (1000s of free movies & series in HD), Apple TV (inc. Airplay), IPTV with all foreign channels and efficient broadband Internet... Anyway hope you had a good time. Monica

Nice apartment surrounded by beautiful well kept gardens

  • 4 of 5

Nice spacious apartment surrounded by the most beautiful surroundings. Set in a peaceful location, and yet closeby to Marbella, Benahavis and Estepona. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (within 10mins walk). Owner very helpful and always quick to answer any queries or offer assistance. Highly recommended.

sehr emfehlenswert!

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns in der gepflegten Wohnung, die sehr gut ausgestattet ist, sehr wohl gefühlt.Die Bilder im Internet entsprechen absolut der Realität. Der Garten mit den Pools ist ein Traum, wo man Ruhe und Erholung finden konnte. Ein Auto ist zwar erforderlich, aber man erreicht in wenigen Fahrminuten sowohl Strände als auch abendliche Unterhaltungsmöglichkeiten, wie z. B. Puerto Banus oder sehr gute Lokale in Benahavis. Netflix funktionierte leider nur an 3 Tagen aber das hat der Urlaubsfreude keinen Abbruch getan, wir hatten eh besseres zu tun als fernzusehen!

Owner's Response: Hi Petra, Thank you for your kind comment and happy you had a great time. Regarding Netflix it is fully operational (as is HBO!) and you probably forgot to use the VPN system (instructions on small table). Any doubt or problem, guests should not doubt in getting in touch with me and I will happily attend to it. A call, an sms or email or Whatsapp, I am connected all the time and ready to help!

Located in award-winning luxury development El Campanario

El Campanario award-winning development is situated between Marbella and Estepona only 5 minutes drive from Puerto Banus Marina and at the heart of the best golf courses in Costa del Sol (next to Atalaya golf course). Only 400 yards from the apartment is a shopping area (Comercial Diana) with several restaurants, bars, supermarket (Cayetano), vet and pet grooming, a bakery, a butcher's, a hairdresser salon and more. El Presidente beach is the nearest (less than a mile from apartment) across main road. It has restaurants and bars for al fresco eating with your feet in the sand with also the Marriott hotel facilities.

Personally we prefer the beaches in nearby San Pedro and Puerto Banus only a 5 minute drive from development. We usually go to the Mistral beach bar in Puerto Banus (Guadalmin exit) where there is a nice ambience. Take the exit at Repsol petrol station (after the San Pedro tunnel towards Marbella).

Also beautiful beaches in Estepona (10 minutes drive) or to the East of Marbella with Rosario beach where actor Antonio Banderas has a house or Cabopino beach with its dunes and fine sand (nudist beach on western side for those who would rather swim au naturel).

San Pedro has a brand new seafront with many restaurants and bars to enjoy (minutes drive from our apartment). Also a sea promenade from Guadalmina going along the beaches all the way to Puerto Banus Marina. A nice idea for a walk in the morning or at sunset.
