3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Detached Villa in a delightful convenient location.
Our superb south facing detached villa in lower Calahonda, is just near the Norwegian Church, in a very peaceful area, day and night. Conveniently located on the coast between Fuengirola and Marbella and is just a thirty minutes drive from Malaga Airport. There is a lovely large well maintained large communal pool and garden area, accessed through the garden gate, and is less than 30 metres away . The villa has a large private south facing terraced garden ideal for sunbathing, barbecues and outside dining. The terraced garden is accessed from the lounge patio doors, master bedroom and the kitchen. The property is split level, the lower level being the terrace and large lounge area and the upper level being the contemporary dining area with its own patio doors to the small west facing terrace, and the fully equipped modern kitchen. Access to the property is from the road via the carport is down a flight of outside steps to the front door and terrace area, and we therefore do not think it is suitable for wheel chair users!

Why Martine and Phill chose Sitio de Calahonda
We really feel totally at home in Calahonda, having got to know the area so well, and having made many friends here over the years, and we just love the location with so many excellent restaurant, bars and beaches right on our door step. It is also a very safe area with 24 hour security. This superb location is also an excellent base from which to visit other areas of Southern Spain and Portugal with excellent road and rail links.

Lovely villa perfect location
We have just had 10 perfect days staying in this lovely villa, the facilities and location had everything we wanted. We spent lazy afternoons by the pool, which was lovely and clean and the gardens were very pretty. We had barbecues on the Terrace which had all you need for relaxing over a glass or two. The villa is done very tasteful, and the kitchen is better equipped than home !
The location is great for beaches, pretty villages, busy resorts and people watching in little restaurants in old Marbella.
Martine and Phill are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble. We definitely will go back ...
Thank you for the above review regarding your recent stay at our holiday home, in lower Calahonda.
We are both so pleased that you all enjoyed "perfect days", the lovely home from home feel of the villa and garden, and that you also managed to get out and about and see so much of what the local area has to offer holiday makers, during your stay.
Thank you for your business, and we both look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
Truly Amazing Villa & Hosts !
We recently stayed at the villa for 12 days. It was simply perfect. The villa is in a great location in a quiet residential area with only a short walk to shops, many great restaurants (try Brogart's and the Jammy Olive,our favorites) and two grocery stores. We knew from the moment we arrived we had chosen something very special. The villa is very well appointed and there was nothing we needed that was not provided. The décor is modern yet comfortable, very welcoming with a hint of luxurious. The pride that Martine & Phill take in the entire property is very apparent. Travelling with 5 people the split level layout of the villa was also perfect, the living area is at the front which allowed early risers to enjoy beautiful sunny mornings on the very spacious and stunning patio overlooking the well maintained gardens and pool without disturbing those that like to sleep late. The kitchen had all amenities and we enjoyed cooking many meals in the comfort of the villa, which was relaxing after long days sightseeing. Martine & Phill were absolutely fantastic hosts. From the moment of our first inquiry they graciously answered all of our questions, provided step by step instructions for the booking and even contacted us once we had arrived to ensure everything was in order. Upon our return home the security deposit was refunded much faster than I had anticipated, which was one more assurance we had selected the right villa. We would highly, highly recommend renting this home and we are sure that you will enjoy working with Martine & Phill as mush as we did.

The villa more than lived up to our expectations. It was immaculately clean,very luxurious, light and airy and spacious.It is located in a very peaceful area of Calahonda but only a short walk to the pretty beach,cafes & shops..We enjoyed swimming in the lovely clean pool and chilling out in the garden whilst enjoying the views.Lots of places to visit in the area and the weather was pleasantly warm and sunny whilst we were there.Great to eat breakfast outside every morning.
We would definitely recommend this property.

The villa is amazing location and well equipped with everything you need, the pool is great and the terrace and BBQ is lovely if your wanting a night in. Would advise you hire a car so you can go and visit all the beautiful Old Towns. Will 100% be back next year.

We are both so pleased that you enjoyed your family get together and in particular loved the villa terrace, BBQ and the beautiful pool.
Thank you for your kind words, and we both look forward to welcoming you all back in the future.
We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in this spacious, luxurious, well equipped villa.
The owners - Martine and Phill - could not have been more helpful in arranging the booking and in providing a wealth of useful information to make our holiday most enjoyable.
The villa is well furnished, spotless and catered for our every need. Excellent showers, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, so much space to sunbathe on the terrace outside - and even access to UK television channels.
The 12 metre communal swimming pool is only a few yards away, and was seldom used by holidaymakers in the adjacent villas - it was effectively our own private pool!
The villa is situated in a lovely quiet residential neighbourhood, yet is only a 10-15 minute walk away from a good choice of restaurants, bars, supermarkets, pharmacy etc.
We cannot recommend this property enough! Excellent accommodation and excellent value!

Thank you also for your business, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Fantastic property for a relaxing chill-out holiday in the sun
From the initial enquiry about availability of the villa through to booking confirmation, and then during the period before we departed for Spain communication with the property owners was brilliant. Phone, email and WhatsApp messaging were all used to confirm everything we needed to know, and they provided us with great recommendations on local car hire, restaurants and ideas about things to do during our stay.
One is always slightly wary with booking accommodation based on just website photos and reviews, but we struck gold with this villa in Sitio de Calahonda.
The location is lovely in a quiet residential area, but with restaurants, bars and shopping within a 10 minute stroll.
The villa itself was gorgeous with very spacious living & dining area, three bedrooms with one having an en-suite bathroom, the main bath / shower room and a fully equipped kitchen. The private terrace was beautiful getting the sun pretty much all day, and we spent most of our week relaxing there. It also overlooks the shared pool area which is in a lovely garden setting and about a 50 yard walk from the villa back gate.
Internet access was reliable & quick, plus access to UK TV channels was a nice to have although we hardly watched any TV as outside most of the time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property and would recommend it, particularly if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing break. We'd have no hesitation in returning.
Thank you for your recent complimentary review regarding your stay at our holiday home in lower Calahonda last week.
We are both delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much, and that you felt so reassured by our communications with you during the booking process, and prior to your arrival.
We were also particularly interested to hear your lovely comments regarding our private sunny terrace and the beautiful pool too.
Our aim is to try and make sure that our guests do enjoy a real home from home feel about the villa, during their stay.
Thank you for your business and we look forward to welcoming you all back again in the future.
Make sure you take a walk along the new coastal path, it is set back just above and behind the beach, along most of the local coast now!
For a real adventure day out drive up to the Camininto del Rey and do the newly constructed gorge walk, its stunning and well worth a visit. You need to book online at www.caminitodelrey.info.en and it costs 12 Euros each inclusive.
