Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Elviria - Powderham Villa

Sleeps up to 13 people, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, walking distance to amenities

This stunning 5 bedroom villa sits on a generous corner plot and so has a high degree of privacy. No expense has been spared and it has a real homely feel. It is perfect for families who can take advantage of the play area, games room and roof top table tennis. Its location also makes it ideal for beach lovers and golfers, Elviria has some of the best beaches (including the famous Nikki Beach) along the coast and there are many fantastic golf courses nearby. This home from home is also the perfect place to relax with its lovely outdoor lounge and dining area overlooking private salt water pool and the beautiful, mature gardens. There are shops, restaurants and taxi rank within walking distance and the nearest beach is just a 15 minute walk. Elviria has a lovely 'square' with tapas bars, restaurants, bars, banks, hairdressers and a supermarket.

Outside space: The grounds are approximately 1300 sq meters and there is off road parking for up to 3 cars. The villa is approached through a security barrier onto the urbanisation and then an electric gate leads onto the private driveway. The gardens have been beautifully landscaped with mature trees, palm trees and orange, lemon and fig trees, there is also a small pond with Koi Carp. The outdoor lounge and dining area can be fully enclosed with sliding flameless glass and opens out onto the terraced barbecue area complete with gas barbecue making it the the perfect place for alfresco dining.

Security: For peace of mind, this villa is secured with an alarm linked to the local security service who are only 1 minute away.

Beautiful private villa with private salt water pool, table tennis & pool table
average rating of 4.9 based on 20 reviews


  • 5 of 5

What an amazing villa! 11 of us (6 adults & 5 children) stayed here for 2 weeks and we never felt in each other's way. To be honest we sometimes couldn't find each other - the place is so big!

Our favourite place was the garden and pool area. So many gorgeous plants, flowers and palm trees, it was like a tropical oasis! The pool was used from sunrise to sundown, and was such a nice place to cool off after laying in the sun-trapped garden! It is bigger than it looks in the picture too.

When we did want shade we sat in the little area overlooking the pool where there are comfy chairs, and nice views towards Elviria Hills. There are nice little touches such as pool inflatables, a Bluetooth music speaker and blankets for the chilly evenings.

Inside the villa, the living room was massive, with a big TV with loads of English channels. The bedrooms were big, light and airy, and the bathrooms were modern, and lovely & clean.

The location of the villa is excellent - the fact it is on a gated development makes you feel safe, and even though there are lots of villas on the development, it was surprisingly quiet. Most of the time, all we could hear was birds singing.

It is best to have a car to explore the area fully (we managed to fit 3 Fiat Puntos on the drive), but you can still reach places without a car. We walked to Nikki Beach in 15 minutes, and there are bars, restaurants and a little shop within 10 mins. There is also a big Lidl within a 5-min drive. And if you love your British products, drive to the far end of Marbella where there is an Iceland!

If you want to explore the Costa Del Sol further, I recommend day trips to Gibraltar and Ronda, and also hiking the Caminito Del Rey - such amazing scenery!

We absolutely loved our holiday here and cannot fault anything. We will definitely be back! Thank you to Nicola as well who was always at the end of the phone, should we have needed her! Although we didn't need to contact her once! (Sorry for dragging you out at 1am on a Sunday morning when we arrived though!).

This House is really a Home

  • 5 of 5

What a great House! Upon entering was once a lovely atmosphere. Super spacious House, where everything was present. Our son of 2 years old has been like us, wonderfully entertained. There was enough toys and a super cute kids room. Outside all is well secured for children, so that we could enjoy our holiday in peace. The swimming pool is very good, there is no chlorine in but salt water, which does not harm the skin. There is a large fence around the pool, what is safe especially for small children. Everything in the powderham villa is thought of, to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Peaceful garden and not suffer from traffic. In the evening we spend al lot of time on the terrace and enjoy the nice view. We rented this House for 3 weeks and that was actually still to short. Shops are a 5 min walk and all is well. The first 2 weeks we had much rain, but there was so much to do in and around the House that we have bored not one second. It was even better than we had expected. Everything was super clean and Nicola, you are a treasure. Thank you so much for all the good care. Our stay was really wonderful and we sure will come back. We will recommend this House to anyone!

Just Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beautiful.

We were a party of 7 and as soon as we walked through the door we couldn't believe we would be spending the week here. (Not long enough)

It's really spacious and modern and the owners personal touch on the decor really makes it a home from home, a really nice one at that!

It has everything you will need and more.

The garden is immaculate, very well kept and the pool is a good size and a great area to spend your day, (and night).

We mainly stayed at the villa but when we did ventured out the main supermarket is a short walk down the hill with a good selection of bars and restaurants. We would get a taxi back with our shopping but take somthing with the address written on to show them as most dont know where the villa is! The beach is only another 10mins from there which is nice.

I would 100% reccomend this villa, we had a perfect stay and really didn't want to leave. You will not be dissapointed.

Last a personal thank you to Nicola for being very helpful and accomodating.

(wont let me select a star rating but it's five stars from us)

O'Connor family.

Perfect place and very nice house for a big family

  • 5 of 5

We was 12 People (grandmother, grandfather, 6 adults and 4 grandchildren) and the house was just perfect! The house was big, clean and very nice. Everyone enjoyed the pool-area og the nice garden. We rent cars and made small trips to Fuengirola, Marbelle og Puerto Banus - very nice smal city. With cars it is 5 min to the beach and shoppingmal for food. We recomend all family to visit Aventura Amazona Marbella. It is a park with 83 challenges in the trees and 20 ziplines - funny for everyone and challenging for someone! Everyone had a great holiday and we recomend the house. We would love to come back! The owner and the manager provide very good customer serivce!

Mar Bella! Vacation! ;)

  • 5 of 5

When booking a holiday you always hope that the holiday is going to be as nice as described in the brochure. The Powderham Villa for sure was as nice! Maybe even better.

Everything was available! Towels for swimming, tons of inflatable toys for use in the pool, an umbrella stroller, a clean bbq, a great kitchen with all equipment we needed, a drawer full of taxi, restaurant and shopping tips. It was all there!

We had a great time! One week was way too short! Nicola, thanks for taking care of everything!
