Bedrooms 3
Space 1,991 sq. ft.

About the property

3 double en-suite bedrooms: incl master bedroom with private balcony & sea views

Our beautiful, spacious villa is ideal for families and groups of friends, with a private sunny south facing garden, shade from the hot sun is available on the terrace or under our oak tree, large pool, stunning sea and mountain views.

We have recently installed fast free fibre optic WIFI for our guests.

All 3 bedrooms are en-suite with

the master bedroom upstairs

featuring a boutique-style wet room and a a sun-soaked balcony - the perfect place for a morning coffee whilst enjoying the views as far as Gibraltar and the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.

The villa is very child-friendly no matter what age your kids are - from a large, safe garden to the pool, which has a shallow, sectioned off area for little ones. Feel free to use our pool toys, buckets and spades, baby cot (excludes bedding) and high chair.

Whilst the pool is shared with two other villas you’ll see from the reviews that you’ll more often than not have the pool to yourselves. The pool is accessed through a locked gate at the end of the garden, giving parents extra piece of mind.

Ideally-located in a peaceful, quiet residential location, we’re also just 5 minutes by car from the beach or a 20 minute walk. Shops, bars and restaurants are all just minutes away. Marbella is 15 minutes away, Puerta Banus 20 minutes and Malaga Airport 25 minutes. Sierra Nevada ski resort is also just 2 hours away.

We have a fully-fitted kitchen with oven, dishwasher, washing machine, American fridge/freezer, coffee machine and all the utensils you’ll need for 6 guests plus free basics like coffee, tea and sugar.

Have breakfast, lunch and dinner inside, on the patio or in the garden with contemporary indoor and outdoor table and chair sets. If you feel like cooking outdoors there’s a 4 burner stainless steel BBQ for your use on the patio. There are also 6 sun-loungers for the garden.

Free, high speed broadband is available throughout the property, including the garden area.

We invite guests to pick their own lemons, limes, plums and mangoes from our garden (depending on the season).

Our villa is a year-round destination, perfect for an Easter get-away and even Christmas and New Year in the sun. We have recently installed a log burning fire in the lounge for cosy winter nights.

We look forward to welcoming you...

A perfect luxury retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week at Casa Batty, the property is immaculate and the hosts were fantastic to deal with, really friendly and super helpful.

We had our 3 year old with us and the house layout and huge enclosed garden was awesome for him, we were actually able to properly relax safe in the knowledge he couldn't access the pool directly.

The location is very convenient to both Cabapino and La Cala, and I really enjoyed the tranquil setting, especially in the evenings where the garden gets the last of the light and the views out to the sea with Africa in the background are stunning.

Can't recommend it highly enough, totally loved it!

Lovely house - great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were very pleased with the property, which is just as it says on the website. With a two year old we were particularly delighted with the excellent swimming pool separated from the garden by the hedge and a secure gate - no worries about our daughter falling in if we didn't keep our eyes on her for every second. And though the pool is shared, we ever saw anyone else using it, and it is bigger than most villas' pools and in a very pleasant setting.

We loved the views out to sea, and the whole area is very quiet and well kept with local shops a short drive away - you can walk, but it is a bit of a climb back up the hill!

There are plenty of places to go and things to do, though just being there is almost enough... we especially liked nearby Capobino beach; the area of sand dunes makes it apparently the only stretch of beach on the Costa Del Sol that isn't "urbanised", and it is only a short drive away. The restaurants at the little port there are good, too.

Our daughter is still talking about how she enjoyed the Biopark zoo in Fuengirola, and the Aquarium in Benaldamena, both small enough to be easily manageable with a two year old and good enough to impress her parents!

We were there in late September and the weather was always dry and warm with occasional morning mist - mostly high 20s and very pleasant.

The house has everything needed for a good stay, with good sized rooms, and is smart and well maintained. The beds were comfortable.

We recommend it - our only regret is that we went for only a week - we'd have loved a few more days there and know there are several more things to see and do next time!

Excellent well-equipped villa with lovely garden and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children (4 and 1 years). This villa was perfect for us with plenty of room and facilities inside and a spacious well kept garden outside with plenty of shade from the lovely trees present if we wanted it. There are two bedrooms downstairs and one upstairs with the bedroom upstairs having lovely views to the sea and the marina from the large balcony. The large communal swimming pool with a children's section is through a locked gate at the bottom of the garden (for which you are provided with a key) which kept it safe from the children which suited us perfectly. In the 2 weeks we were there we practically had it to ourselves so it was like a private pool. The villa is in a quiet position and we rarely heard noise from any of the neighbours. There is a dishwasher, washing machine/dryer, oven and fridge/freezer plus cot and highchair if requested (which we did). Outside there is a mixture of rattan furniture (dining table, coffee table, associated chairs and sunbeds) plus fold up beach beds and umbrellas the latter of which was excellent for use when visiting the beach. Shops, beach and marina with numerous restaurants are about 5 to 10 minute drive away. The owners provided us with their mobile number so we could text any questions and the few questions we did have were answered very promptly. For our purposes this was a perfect place with everything we needed (and more) and would highly recommend it to anyone holidaying in the area!!

Very well kept house with beautiful garden and ocean view

  • 5 of 5

If you want a house a few minutes from Marbella, with a nice living area, 3 nicely decorated bedrooms (2 master bedrooms with en-suite bathroom!), 3 minutes away from restaurants, bars, convenience stores, medical centres operating 24/7 and pharmacies, with a beautiful garden, a marvelous ocean view and a nice pool area (shared, but so easily accessible through 1gate from the garden!) then this is your house! Phil, the owner, made us feel at home even before we arrived and not only accommodated our requests but went far and beyond to make us feel comfortable and happy. Couldn't recommend Casa Batty enough!

Relaxing holiday,and a great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Batty is a lovely villa where you can enjoy a very relaxing holiday. From the very start, Phil was so helpful and always contactable if we had any questions that needed answering. When we arrived at the villa we loved it straight away,as it was clean ,spacious and felt like a real home. There was everything that we needed and more,and we couldn't fault it.The upstairs bedroom has a balcony with fantastic views of the sea and Cabopino harbour,and it has its own very modern ensuite bathroom. Downstairs are two more bedrooms and bathrooms,a really nice kitchen,and a lounge where we'd relax at the end of the day. There's plenty of space outside and the garden is a great place to sunbathe as it's so peaceful,and nearby is the swimming pool which we had to ourselves most of the time.

We will definitely be going back again as it is just perfect for us,and we can't wait until next year.

Car: recommended

Quiet location with breathtaking views of Cabopino Marina,Gibraltar and Atlas mountains. Our 3 bedroom 3 bathroom villa has two double rooms and one twin - one upstairs, two downstairs. Modern contemporary furnished..Our urbanisation consists of 14 villas..11of which have their own pools.. Leaving the remaining 3 villas to share the beautiful pool which is accessable through our garden gate and straight into the pool..Even in high season the pool is very quiet and under used..hence we have not had one installed..the pool is 10 metres away..

This is our family holiday home.. so a lot of attention to detail and kept in very good is well situated for beaches, golf, shops, restaurants, Cabopino marina...whilst only 30 minutes from Malaga Airport...Ideal for couples and families.....sorry NO same sex group bookings..apart from golfing groups..

Beautiful private garden and private drive...due to our quiet location...away from the hustle and bustle.. a hire car is recommended.
