About Iverna Hynes

We are private owners dedicated to providing guests with excellent service for the past 20 years. Your enjoyment is of paramount importance to us .

Iverna Hynes purchased this apartment in 1970

Why Iverna Hynes chose West Costa del Sol

Skol is probably the best location in Marbella. Built when spacious gardens and 3 pools were affordable it is ideally located close to the Old Town, Marina and beach.

Super whether you wish to shop. chill out, play golf or just laze in the sun .

The perfect apartment in Marbella

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks in January in the Skol apartment. The location is unbeatable: from the two terraces you can watch the sunrise, sunset, and everything in between: fishing boats on the horizon, beach side restaurants grilling the catch of the day. The apartment is modern ,equipped with every necessary appliance, and comfortable. Step outside and you are on the Paseo Maritimo, one can walk for miles in either direction with the sea on one side, and cafes, tapas bars and villas on the other: great people watching. Easy to walk to the old town and central market: we bought seafood and vegetables several times and prepared some delicious meals. There is plenty to do in Marbella, but there are many interesting side trips to be taken:walk or bus to Puerto Banus to view yachts of the super rich and huge Saturday outdoor market, with great bargains on leather goods: rent a car for a day and visit Ronda or Granada.

Iverna and her team were so easy to work with: quick responses to my inquiries and all the information one needs for the apartment and Marbella. We are returning next year

Would stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at this apartment for 1 week in April. The apartment is exactly as the pictures demonstrate and every room was extremely clean. The bed(s) were comfortable with what appeared to be somewhat new and fresh sheets. Our only complaint was the shower took quite awhile to get warm, which may be typical for the area, but nothing we couldn't fix by giving it time to warm up. The 2 balconies provide more than enough space, chairs and sun to relax without having to go far! Every restaurant we tried within walking distance was delicious and affordable. Bath towels & hair dryer provided allowed us more space in our suitcases! Spent a day walking down the Paseo to Puerto Banus and another walking around Old Town/Orange square. Also very convenient city bus ride for 3 Euro to Puerto Banus or approximately a 15 Euro cab ride. Large grocery store only 5 minute walk to stock up the kitchen for your stay. Overall we have no complaints and would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone! Iverna was extremely easy to work with and very responsive to any and all questions that I had, thank you Iverna!

My wife and I have been going to Marbella for over 25 years, and we love it. We also loved this apartment. It's got everything you could possibly want and a fantastic balcony which gets the sun from mid-morning until the end of the day. It's very central and everything is close at hand. The booking process is easy and directions, keys etc very straight forward. I'm certain we will be back again. Thank you very much for the use of your apartment.

Excellent apartment in excellent position

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks over winter in that comfortable, clean and nicely furnished apartment right on the traffic-free promenade and with superb south and west views from both rooms, kitchen and balconies over sea, coast and garden. Everything you need for a pleasant holiday is there, everything works. Not only is the position of the building excellent, but also of the apartment within the building. No need for a car, there is a large, well-stocked supermarket on the promenade 5 minutes away, the attractive restaurant Da Bruno is in the same building. And the 7 km long promenade leading to Puerto Banus is a jewel. Lots of palm trees, benches and attractive beach bars and restaurants. The owner was very accommodating, the booking process easy and efficient. A highly recommendable apartment, we would return at any time.

fantastic Marbella beach-front apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our stay in this great apartment in the Skol complex

This 3rd floor corner apartment has everything one would need on holiday including Wifi and satellite TV. But it is the 2 balconies and incredible views that really make it stand out. The views down the coast are simply stunning. The complex pool area is beautifully kept and has 2 large pools one of which is adults only

And on top of all this the location is superb - yards from the beach and in the heart of Marbella

Booking was easy and There really was nothing about our stay that we could fault

Highly recommended - will definitely be back !

Wonderful ideally located apartment

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous week in this light and airy apartment. It is perfectly located within walking distance of the Old Town (we love to drink freshly squeezed fruit juices in Orange Square in the mornings) as well as all the restaurants on the Promenade. The apartment is very clean. We spent most of our time when at the apartment on the front balcony in the sun, there is plenty of room for 2 people. We also had breakfast on this balcony. We used the second balcony in the evening as in March it can be windy and this balcony was shaded better from the wind. We watched the sun setting from one or other balconies whilst sipping a local bottle of wine before heading out to eat every evening. We walked to Peurto Banus which is a long walk but lots of lovely stopping places along the way. We ate at Da Bruno just below, La Navilla (lovely fish and prawns) and La Barca. We will definitely return and will recommend it to our friends and family. Thank you Iverna!

Car: not necessary

A guests description says it all !

'This is one of the most sought after locations, on the beach front yet within a stroll of the Old Town, Orange Square, etc. In a quiet area with a Park and a selection of wonderful restaurants friendly bars you will be spoilt for choice.

The complex is right beside the sea and, while the beach can be busy, inside the sub tropical garden in Skol beside the adults only pool it was another world - so peaceful! There were plenty of people there on sun loungers reading, tanning etc. but it was quiet - no problem with having a nap!

Heading outside the garden gate brings you directly on to the promenade (its all that separates Skol from the sea) the restaurant and bar choices are endless. The old town is a leisurely stroll away and gives even more choices. Note: a car is in not necessary in fact it would be a hinderance really as parking spots seem to be like gold dust in Marbella. There's a ferry to Puerto Banus from Marbella marina (you can see it from the garden gate) and also the local bus service brings you up and down the coast if you want to go to see some of the other towns.)
