You'll not find a better quality villa in such a fantastic location! Ask for my website details.

Puerto Marina, Benalmadena Costa:

Puerto Marina is one of the main attractions of Benalmadena Costa. In an ideal location, you're just a few minutes' walk away from the marina so that you can enjoy it without having the noise and bustle when you'd rather relax.

At the marina there is a huge selection of bars and restaurants, English-style or Spanish, even a Greek restaurant and of course, some excellent fish restaurants. Enjoy a real Spanish paella with a glass of wine!

For family holidays there is the Sea Life Centre and often there are also huge trampolines which are great fun for children!

You can take a boat trip around the marina, to Fuengirola or to Malaga. You can take a trip to watch for dolphins or, for the more adventurous, some deep sea sport fishing.

Local attractions:

Benalmadena Costa is an ideal location for a variety of entertainment. You will easily be able to visit historic sites such as the Alhambra in Granada and the town of Ronda. You can visit the very typical and attractive village of Mijas, or go to Gibraltar for the day. If you don't have a car, don't worry!! Coach trips are easily available locally.

In the more immediate local area you can visit the local Aquapark or Crocodile Park at Torremolinos, Selwo Marina in Benalmadena, Sea Life Centre on the Puerto Marina and Tivoli World Amusement Park in Arroyo de la Miel. There is a cable car near Tivoli World to take you into the mountains.

Local markets are interesting, and shops, restaurants, bars and beach are all within easy walking distance.

Car hire is not necessary at El Descanso!!

Local beaches:

El Descanso is in an excellent location to enjoy the sandy beaches of the Costa del Sol. The nearest beach is just 3 minutes walk from the villa. The sand slopes gently into the sea and so great for swimmers of all levels.

The promenade connects up the Castillo de Bil Bil right along to Torremolinos, passing through Puerto Marina and La Carihuela. There are some excellent local bars and chiringuitos to stop at whilst you stroll along enjoying the sunshine and wonderful sea views!

Child safety: The swimming pool is fenced from the rest of the garden. Facilities for children include: cots; high chair; push chair; baby bath, etc... please see my website for more details.

Mobility Needs: The villa is adapted for elderly and disability needs. Wide doorways, access for mobility scooters, one bedroom with extra movability space with ensuite bathroom with floor level non-slip shower. Very easy access to beach, marina and local facilities.

About Jennifer & Miguel

I live here in Spain, love the area, love Malaga!

Jennifer & Miguel purchased this villa in 2011

Why Jennifer & Miguel chose West Costa del Sol

I'd been looking for a place suitable for mobility needs. This is perfect. Great location so easy from that point of view and apart from the master suite which is upstairs, all the villa is one level so ideal.

What makes this villa unique

Location, mobility suitability, child friendly - just great!

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Group of ten adults at El Descanso

  • 5 of 5

This large villa is clean and well maintained. Very close to the marina and loads of bars and restaurants. Ten of us were accommodated comfortably, but bear in mind that four of the bedrooms are on the lower floor with only one upstairs. This means that you will need to share bathrooms - not a problem for friends. Large outside area with heated pool, very clean. Wifi was seemingly free for our stay, although the blurb says otherwise. Jennifer at costadelsolholiday.com was very helpful, clear communication and no problems whatsoever. Thanks very much for a great stay at El Descanso!

Beautiful villa and gardens

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our extended family and the villa, pool and gardens were beautiful. It was easy to book and the owner did provide good service, with lots of information about the local area and transport to and from the airport. The villa is as described in the listing and the location is perfect - a short journey from Malaga airport and all amenities within walking distance. Everything is clean, beautifully decorated and well maintained with everything you need for a great holiday. The bedrooms are lovely, with air conditioning and the bathrooms are clean and modern, with fresh white towels. The kitchen is modern and well equipped - even washing machine and dishwasher, there is also a BBQ on the patio. The pool is lovely and can be gated for safety, with plenty of sunbeds and chairs to relax on the patio area. Our family spent a lot of time here because it was so nice. The town and beautiful marina are minutes walk away, here there are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. The town was lovely to walk around and had a great holiday feel. Buses are close by to visit attractions - Aqualand is a great day out. There's also a beach, but we preferred to stay by the pool at the villa. I would highly recommend this villa.

Lovely villa, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this lovely villa which was fully restored a couple of years ago. It is spacious, and very nicely decorated and furnished. There are a number of terraces and areas in the garden so you don't feel on top of each other. The pool and BBQ were great. The location is absolutely fantastic. The main coastal road runs at the top of the road but you would never know it. Access by bus along the coast and to the airport so no need to hire a car, only about 20 euros in a cab. Lidls at the top of the road and a Supersol about 5 minutes walk away. The BEST bit though is how near it is to the Marina and beach, I promise you only 2 minutes walk. Also there are lots of lovely restaurants for all budgets. We loved the Spanish Garden behind the Aloha Puerto Sol, very Spanish. If you need English bars and restaurant just walk down the road from there. Paul at Casey Dukes Irish Bar at the top of the road is very helpful, and made recommendations for eating and things to do. You will really enjoy this villa.

Benalmadena Costa, Costa del Sol
Car: not necessary

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.

Just 2 minutes from the apartments, 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!

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

Golf: There are over 50 golf courses along the Costa del Sol. A few of the nearest to the villa would be Benalmadena Golf, Torrequebrada Golf, Mijas Golf, Valderrama Golf Club, La Cala, La Reserva de Sotogrande - the list is long!

This area of the Costa del Sol is rightly often called the 'Costa del Golf' !

The area is also a perfect location to bring the family. Whilst the golfers are away, there is plenty to keep the family occupied!

I can arrange golf transport and tee discounts.

Ski: Benalmadena Costa is ideally situated for those wanting a winter break of sunshine and beach, but also a trip to the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada. The Sierra Nevada is only about an hour and a half away by car and the skiing is fantastic. Enjoy the relaxing sunny beaches one day and the excitement of the ski slopes the next!
