What a fabulous few days myself & my girlfriends had last week. The villa is beautiful & everything Jennifer said it was, copious amounts of space inside & out, well equipped throughout the villa

As for the location well, at the bottom of the road is the marina, and at the top of the road are the supermarkets. Perfect!

I intend to be back next year with my family

Thank you Jennifer & Miguel xxx

Excellent in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with our extended family, 4 countries, all meeting up at El Descanso. This was our third visit to one of Jennifers vilas. Jennifer made it all very easy for us, always quick replies to emails and everything was just great. The villa was super clean and had everything we wanted. Lots of space and having the pool heated was great for the little kids. Little things made the difference - comfy beds, cot and high chair for our babies at no charge - even toys and books. Snooker table was a hit with us adults. Beautiful villa and will definitely return! We also took a few nights at El Atico, just 4 of us, to visit Malaga.

Beautiful villa, well equipped, brilliant location

  • 5 of 5

Spent an amazing week with family and friends at this villa.

It ticked all the boxes.

Our group consisted of a mixture of ages ranging from 23 - 77., the villa and location accommodated everybody's wants and needs.

One of the group had limited mobility and the bedroom with level access shower was a perfect.

The heated pool was fabulous too x

The aminities within the villa, more than catered for our needs. We ate in a few times and made use of the BBQ.

we are currently planning a return trip.

Would like to Jennifer and her team for making the booking experience and check in straight forward and hassle free.

Gorgeous Villa near beach and shops!

  • 5 of 5

El Descanso is an absolutely gorgeous villa, very spacious with plenty of room for 3 generations of our family and everything you could need for travelling with an infant and a toddler including a box of toys!

The pool was lovely and the bbq and outdoor eating area perfect. There were three balconies to catch every single ray of sun!

Location was a couple of minutes from beach and supermarkets incl Lidl which is great for bbqing for a large crowd

A beautiful villa in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We stopped at the villa over the Easter period. It is a very spacious villa, very clean and lots of room for a family. The heated pool was wonderful and a stroll down to the Maria was great. We all wish to return next year. A holiday to remember.

Benalmadena Costa is an excellent location for a family holiday or golf breaks on the Costa del Sol! We are an easy drive from Malaga Costa Del Sol Airport also known as Pablo Ruiz Picasso Airport.

From all my properties you can walk to Puerto Marina, visit the bars & restaurants and the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. See the mountains of the Sierra Nevada whilst swimming in the sea!

You will be in an ideal location to visit the Alhambra in Granada and beautiful local towns such as Mijas and Ronda. Don't miss a visit to Malaga to visit the Picasso Museum, and a chance to sample tapas and Malaga Dulce vino!

Excursions can be arranged locally.

Within an easy walking distance are local shops, restaurants and many tourist facilities. Visit Sea Life Centre in Benalmadena, Selwo Marina, Tivoli World, or visit nearby Torremolinos for the Aqua Park and Crocodile Park.

For golfers this is the 'Costa del Golf' - to name a few nearby clubs: Torrequebrada Golf; Valderrama Golf, Benalmadena Golf; Mijas.
