Our Easter holiday at your gorgeous villa.

  • 5 of 5

I'd just like to thank you for providing us with a wonderful holiday. Everything was absolutely perfect; the villa, the location, the pool, and especially your lovely housekeeper Mary Lou. It was very nice being so close to so many golf courses, without any traffic jams, and the view of the coast from the villa is amazing. We're already dreaming of next year!

The Villa made our holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Such an amazing villa. I enjoyed a long weekend with some old friends and the villa made our weekend. There was everything we could have asked for at the villa and loads of space. The weekend wouldn't have been the same with the housekeeper MaryLou. She made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for her. We enjoyed a lot of relaxing by the pool with the lovely views. It was great to be out of the hustle and bustle of Marbella but yet it was so easy to get to when we wanted to take a trip there.

I would highly recommend this villa for a great holiday.

A real holiday - all the benefits of an exclusive villa, but without the usual chores & stress.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five, with three young children, and wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa.

How many other villas on any website have so many positive and exclusively 5-Star feedback? After staying there, we agree with all of the positive comments already left!

The following is a synopsis of our experience:

- Huge, spacious, traditional Andalucian style villa with lots of character and history.

- Private, yet safe and secure, with great views, and not overlooked.

- Plenty of separate areas for gatherings or quiet corners – in the sun, or in the shade.

- Huge pool for all levels of competency, with separate shallow pool, ideal for toddlers.

- Spotlessly clean with fantastic resident housekeeper during the week - helping at meal-times, freshening towels and bedclothes, but never intrusive.

- Very convenient to popular destinations and beaches, but also to less touristy villages such as San Pedro and Benahavis (which has great restaurants as well as playgrounds for the children).

In summary we would highly recommend this villa for a true family break - the owner (Paul) is a gentleman, and with the help from Marilou it provides all the benefits of an exclusive private villa, but without the usual chores and stress.

Villa Amarilla

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth time and as always a great experience. The villa looks better than the pictures with a fabulous pool, spacious garden and having Marilou available for cleaning, cooking (if you want) makes it a real holiday experience. Looking forward to the next time. Thanks Paul and Marilou.

The villa is situated approximately 60 kilometers West of Malaga on the Costa del Sol, or 50 kilometers East of Gibraltar and lies slightly inland behind the famous MARBELLA and PUERTO BANUS.

The villa is also situated overlooking the La Quinta Golf Course and there are several golf courses within 10 minutes drive of the villa. There are miles of beaches within a few miutes drive from the villa. The villa was featured in the well known Television series ' Auf Weidesein Pet ' and the pool was the pool the gang were building. There is a small supermarket, cafe restaurant and bar, and a bank with cash dispenser within 10 minutes walk. The villa has good security. This is also an excellent location for day travelers who wish to visit the inner Spain, Cordoba, Seville, Ronda, Granada,etc - all are just a few hours drive..
