About the property

In a sea of ​​colors of flowers, 350m from the beach, sleeps 7, 10x5 pool


Perhaps the first day begins so; You / your sitting in the shady patio under orange oleander flowers, blue and red Jacaranda Bougainvillea, feel the heat, take as fragrance of the flowers one, enjoying their first coffee and plan for the day. The children meanwhile because pool (10x5) endeckt (Mama, Mama! In the water are dolphins!) and the laughter vibrated through the house (~ 160sqm 12 rooms with two fireplaces and a heating open for the winter months. Each bathroom has its own toilet / shower)

Maybe you decide to first do the Enkaüfe and walk the 750m Trough shady avenues highly supermarket (Supersol). The car can safely stay on the property for more than a certain value Shopping supply many supermarkets home.

Once the purchases have arrived home, housed in the huge refrigerator in part, you decide not to have lunch at home (the first day is too early to try the fully equipped kitchen - see picture.). So gather the children a (now busy playing football in the garden) and you take a leisurely stroll down to the beach the 350m where they choose one from 5 restaurants (see photo). The restaurants are of native (Spaniards and foreigners) all year by popular. The service is friendly, and the selection results with fresh fish dishes, Spanish tapas, Italian dishes to fresh salad and great Spanish wines.

After that want the children romp in the water and you now want to lie in the shade and out look out to sea. Both are possible . Either you make now a verdaungs Walk to geshützten bays of Puerto Banus (20 minute walk - see picture) or you can rent right at the San Pedro beach chairs and umbrella (see picture). Most of the beaches in the area have showers, toilet / changing facilities.

In the late afternoon (it is still hot), and zurrück in the garden you are now under a palm tree (the garden is home to five palm trees), or up on the sun terrace (where fly past at eye level bright green Parakeeten), or see the children to swimming and perhaps marvel at the same time as the dark blue of the pool developed into a play of colors with purple and red bougainvillea, white and red oleander, yellow and orange roses, cacti (which bloom yellow in June), all under the bright blue summer Heaven (Since 2011, the sun shines most continuously from January to November.)

Meanwhile, the men sit with a cold beer in front of the 55 inch television and watch a sports show on (we have the normal German-speaking Free Satellite TV channels and a DVD player maybe suitable for children brought DVD.)

Everyone has place here.

For the evening planning we have to offer: Boutiques, yachts, a department store (El Corte Ingles) and countless bars in Puerto Banus (20 minute walk along the beach. Or 5 minutes by car.). Skips man Puerto Banus and Marbella controls, man can as explore the alleys of the old town Marbella, located on Orange Square (Plaza de Naranjas) meet for dinner and then try the countless wine bars or perhaps attend a Flamenco show. Or stay at the villa and sit outside under the sunshade with the background of illuminated palm trees (see picture) with a swimming pool and pool grill.

About Marc Alexander

We are an Englisch / German family who have owned this elderly but lovingly cared for Villa for a generation. The family spends most of their holiday here and therefore it is offered as a 'home form home'.

Marc Alexander purchased this villa in 1984

Why Marc Alexander chose West Costa del Sol

The Villa lies 350m from the Beach , there are great value for money restaurants that are used by local and epatriates all year round. The area is quiet yet centrally located with easy access to San Pedro, Puerto Banus (Department Store 'El Corte Ingles') or Marbella. Either on foot , bus or car.

Gibralter (duty free) and Malaga city are in opposite direction but both are easily reachable in 40 . 50 minutes by car via motorways. Whether it is Marbella , Malaga, Granada or Seville , everything is within reach by bus (airconditioned and again good value for money). Without doubt a car is useful but it is certainly not essential.

What makes this villa unique

The peace and quiet of the huge colourful garden (irrespective of the season there is always colour here) . Add to this the size of the house (for example there are two lounges with fireplaces) so that everybody can find their corner (even in winter) .

Every bedroom has its own shower/WC (we have one bath).

In summer life is spent around the the 10x5m pool, but there is also the option to withdraw to the pation , soak the sun up , upstairs on the sun terrace or choose one of 5 palm trees to sit under

Fabulous October long weekend away!!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned home from a fabulous long weekend away with friends who recommended the villa to us when they stayed for two weeks in April. The villa was beautiful especially the outside with all the flowers in bloom, the weather was lovely for that time of year and we will defiantly will be returning next year. Would highly recommend.

We returned yesterday from a week-long stay at Marc’s beautiful villa, situated in Cortijo Blanco urbanisation, a well-established suburb of the Marbella region. As a family of three – my wife and I and our 7 month old – we were spoiled by the generous 4 double bedrooms, communal areas and outdoor space (the villa sits on quite an ample plot of verdant grass secured by high walls lined with purple bougainvillea). Large or multiple families would be well accommodated here.

Marc greeted us on arrival, helping us with our luggage into the master bedroom and then giving us a tour of the property. He was very helpful answering our questions – we were particularly eager to locate a supermarket to get stocked up on food and drinks ahead of the England game playing later that day – and even sent me directions via WhatsApp.

Unlike some of the other guests before us, we did opt for a car rental. It is by no means essential or necessary but did make those supermarket trips easier and the wider region more accessible. I would recommend a walk to Puerto Banús marina (a chance to see super yachts and supercars) and a visit to the towns of Marbella and Estepona for eating, shopping and soaking up some Spanish culture.

The villa is equipped with a large SMART tv hooked up to Satellite (Euro channels, mostly German) and has a decent wireless provision of broadband connectivity. I ran a speed test from my IPad and clocked a download speed of 35MB, which is ample for any streaming services you have on your mobile device (you can run Netflix right off the tv). There are also board games and a collection of English and German books for entertainment.

Our recommendation to Marc would be to install air conditioning sometime in the future (fans are provided and do a fairly good job of cooling the bedrooms down at night). Overall, this was a great holiday for us and we highly recommend Villa don Carlos to others.

A villa full of character.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were absolutely thrilled with the villa. Upon arrival it was immediately clear that the villa would not just meet our high expectations but also surpass them. The villa is full of character. It is clean, comfortable and well presented. It has spacious rooms and ample bathrooms which have been modernized. Inside the villa has everything you might need including excellent WIFI!!

Where this villa surpassed our expectations was the spacious and very well maintained outdoor garden with a large and welcoming swimming pool. The garden is full of colour and has comfortable spacious seating areas for catching some rays, having drinks before dinner or hosting a big family dinner al fresco.

Marc met us on our arrival to help us find our feet and introduced us to the door of the fridge which holds all the info you might need for your holiday while in the villa and out about town and the beach!!

it would be a pleasure to recommend Villa don Carlos to friends and family and we look forward to a future visit there.

2 weeks of bliss..

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival and meeting Marc we were both surprised on how beautiful the villa was. The pictures of the garden, pool area and roof sun terrace do not do this property justice! Marc was very welcoming and provided fantastic customer service throughout the process. Marc was very knowledgeable of the area and there was ample information within the welcome pack of all local amenities as well as excursions. Marc also provided a guided tour of the villa & ensured we was comfortable with how everything worked and where to find everything.

The property itself was very well maintained and even had a local gardener that came twice a week to maintain/clean the pool and garden, we didn't even see/hear him though we knew he had definitely been!

The interior of the villa was very well equipped, Internet, TV etc. However will say we couldn't find any English channels though this wasn't an issue as the 50" tv was a smart TV so easy to get Netflix or Youtube if needed and besides you don't come on holiday to watch TV! With 4 double bedrooms and 4 bathrooms this was more than ample especially for just the 2 of us! The 2 beds we did use were very comfortable & yes found it very hard to get out of in the morning, especially my wife!

The actual location of the villa was ideal for us, it's in a quiet urbanisation and did not feel overlooked at all. It's a stones throw from the beach which has a lovely promenade and numerous restaurants to choose from. The town of San Pedro is only a 15-20 min slow walk away with some lovely shops/bars & restaurants and is also very well priced and certainly has more the feel of a real Spanish town. Again if you are looking for a little more then Puerto Banus is also just a 15-20min slow walk away along the beach pathway/promenade which also has plenty more beaches/bars & restaurants enroute. If you would rather get a taxi then look to pay no more than 10 euros each way to or from Puerto Banus. Finally regarding the location it was in close proximity to both a super market and an Irish bar which had all the sport you needed and I must say the locals and bar staff were so friendly and welcoming, Joey the owner and Sam behind the bar were great guys! The local ex pats were also very friendly.

A hire car is not needed for this location unless you have good reason. Would I recommend this property? Yes 100% Will we stay again? Yes 100% & very soon! Marc, thanks for a great stay & look forward to seeing you again soon BR Al & Katy.

The villa was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fantastic! The photos on the website do not convey the size of the garden surrounding the villa, it was very extensive and with the benefit of a high wall and colourful bushes surrounding the whole property, the privacy it afforded was excellent. We could spend the whole day by the pool and not see another person if we wanted. It felt like a a real retreat from the outside world. The pool area was spacious and the pool itself was surpridsingly large, the kids loved it. The villa itself was tastefully decorated and well equipped with plenty of space for 2 families if required. We would thoroughly recommend this property and will definitely go again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much. Others have also noted that the pictures do not convey the size and the privacy. Yet its only 350m away from the beach and restaurants. Supermarkets are in walking distance. Hope you do manage to visit again. M A Vielen, vielen Dank. Andere haben auch bemerkt das die Fotos nicht die grösse des grundstücks oder auch die Ruhe übermitteln. Nichtdestotroz sind wir 350m vom Stand , Restaurants und auch der hiesige Supermarkt ist leicht zu Fuss zu erreichen. Wir sürden uns sehr freuen wenn ihr es doch schaft wiederzukommen. Gruss M A.
