About the property

Child friendly 2 bedroom plus childs room penthouse with views over the river

Our penthouse apartment has 2 bedrooms plus a childs room with 1 single bed and a cot, both with single beds, but both used mainly as doubles. one with king size double, 1 with two singles but often made up as a large double. Great for golfing couples or a short golf break as we are within walking distance of the beautiful Rio Real Golf Course. Santa Clara, Marbella Golf and Santa Maria Golf Club are all within 10 minutes to mention another 20+ courses within 30 minutes drive.

The apartment is our second home in Marbella, and is equipped as of linen, towels, beach towels. There is a washer/dryer, a dishwasher, microwave, etc. We have 42' flat screen TV, Fibre Optic WiFi Internet is free and fast! and UK (and European) TV. air-conditioning and central heating. There is underground secure parking and a lift. The swimming pool is a 2 minute stroll through the lovely enough not to hear other peoples children having a good time. At the pool there are changing rooms and a book exchange. We are fully equipped for babies, all you need is baby and nappies and have everything a pushchair.

Do you want to see Andalucia??: a journey...I would recommend an overnight stay, although I did a day trip from Elviria on a expensive , but a long hot day. But such a beautiful place...

worth an overnight stay, but a day trip is Alhambra is just incredible.

an hour away, half way up a mountain, a real 'white village' with wonderful views over the coast.

an hour up the mountains...a good trip to see the bridge where the 'bad guys' were sent to their deaths

hour down past windy, a day trip over to Africa

Gibraltar...45 minutes, good for duty

for the day, but a lovely city

worth the shops...Christmas lights are worth a visit.

More room .....: We have a neighbour with a ground floor three bedroomed apartment in the Pueblo, so if you can't fit your family into our apartment, perhaps you could rent theirs contact me for photos

Long lets: We have found that our apartment is such a good location that we have had several longer lets. As you will see we have a three month let over the winter. Last summer we had a family in for 6 weeks. It is a great location because we are so close to Marbella and the beaches, but we are 'hidden' in a quiet valley.

You can walk up to the Rio Real Golf Club and restaurant, a super evening out. Or to the Incosol Hotel (although it is expensive!!) You can walk to the beach it is 1.5 KMs, ( excellent restaurant and beach bar, Trocadero). There is no charge for parking on any of the beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner


4 of 5 starsReviewed September 16, 2013 NEW

I had already decided on the destination for our holiday and travel period (we went at the end of August), so all we needed to find was accomodation. Out of the 3 I had found, Pueblo Tranquilo was by far the best- I had a really good feeling about it just from the images on the website. I wasn't wrong, and even before I had booked with Rosemarie, she was so accomodating, extremely helpful and full of information about the area that it made my final decision an easy one to make. She seemed to genuinely want us to have a good time on our holiday.

The directions to Torre Real were perfect and made the journey from the airport less of an 'experience' (It was my first time driving a left hand drive vehicle abroad so I was petrified!!). My partner was able to follow the directions however with very little trouble- when he stopped over thinking it!!

The apartment itself was amazing- beautifully decorated, CLEAN and comfortable- just like to images you find here. Both me and my partner are quite fussy people, but we had no complaints here. Our little girl was even happy to sleep in the second bedroom for the first few nights. But the master bed was quite inviting by the end of the week

The private pool was a winner with her too- it wasn't overly busy as everyone was coming and going at their own pace. We even had sun loungers and trendy parasols to use every day we went. Not like hotels where people aimlessly leave beach towels on them while they go out all day.

Sky TV -so I didnt miss my soaps of an evening (sad I know).

And only 3km from Marbella town -we were shocked at how close we actually were. However I would reccomend a car as you would struggle to get back up the hill from the beach at the end of the day Haha. And you have to see Puerto Banus- we saved that until last.

The only negative we had was that the wi-fi wasnt working, but this was literally it and may just have been due to it being the end of the month and the limit may have been reached.

All in all though, we had an amazing time thanks majorly to Rosemarie, (and my choice of destination of course)- and we would definitely recommend this to any holiday goers wanting a peaceful leaisurely holiday in Marbella.

wonderful Apartment!!!!

The interior, we feel was done by a specialist! We have not missed anything in the kitchen, or in the bathrooms (enough towels and Linnen) even blankets have been provided. The view from the balkony to river Rio real and to the mountains was fantastic. A Little walk to the poolarea and the stay in the sun up to 5p.am.in this very tranquilly area was really very Relaxing. The Location, only 5 minutes away from supermarkets and/or old town Marballa is excellent.

We will come again and only hope that nobody will rent this beautiful Apartment

when we plan to come!

Owner's Response: Anita, how very kind of you! We do try to make our home in Marbella a 'home from home' for everyone who stays there. We like to have friends to stay while we are there so we have it fully equipped if we need to entertain. We also have 2 small grandchildren so we have everything for them too. We are both so thrilled you enjoyed your stay in Pueblo Tranquilo...named well we think because as you say, very close to the town, yet it is such a quiet and lovely spot...one of Marbellas best kept secrets!

Pueblo Del Rio is within walking distance of the Rio Real Golf Club, and the Incosol Hotel , in the area known as Los Monteros. The Rio Real is the only golf course that goes right down to the beach. We have some lovely sandy beaches all with beach bars/restaurants within 5 minutes by car..our nearest 1.5 Kms.....all with free parking. Marbella town is only 8 minutes for all the restaurants shops and night life you could require. Puerto Banus , the internationally known port full of expensive boats ( and shops to match) is 10 minutes along the N340.

La Canadas is also 5 minutes drive and is a large shopping mall full of fashion, cafes, cinema, Marks and Spencers, Apple.....and a huge hypermarket.

Our home is perfect for a great relaxing holiday...whether you want to play golf, walk or sunbathe on the beaches go fishing or sailing..or shopping..or just watch UK TV for a bit, we have it all. The pool is an oasis of gardens and relaxation, there is even a book exchange. High chair and cot available

Golf: There are 26 golf courses with a 20 minute drive of our apartment. I think my husband ha played them all, so just ask his opinion!! La Quinta and Rio Real, Santa Clara and Santa Maria will be well known names, Santana, Marbella Cabopino, Los Naranjos, ....it goes on...All good courses. Some have better deals than others.
