We have fitted the house out to a high modern standard and availability is sometimes limited due to it being our family holiday home.

Cabopino is only 5 minute drive..20 mins walk down to port..home to sandy beaches,good restaurants,beach bars..and probably the prettiest port on the Costa del Sol...with Marbella 20 minutes away and Puerto banus 30 minutes away..

Our beautiful private garden has shaded areas to avoid the heat of the sun and has lemons,oranges,mangos and plums available for you to pick and eat depending on the time of your visit.

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.

Most relaxing holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

You will need a car as it is tucked away a bit. The villa is wonderful and we were made to feel that it was our home, so we had a lovely relaxing holiday. the pool which we more or less had to ourselves was great and we spent most of the day lounging on lilos in the pool. Being a higher elevation than the beach there was a constant gentle breeze which helped with the heat being in the 40's.

This was the most relaxing holiday we have ever had and were quite sad to leave, but will look forward to going back again next year.

Summer family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Casa Batty. The villa is beautiful and has everything you need (home from home). Definitely need a car as up a hill. We found nice eating places in Calahonda, Puerto Cabino, Puerto Banus. Although the villa does not have its own pool it felt like it was our own pool as we were the only ones that used it and it was just through the gate at the bottom of the garden. Lovely to go back to the villa after being out all day sightseeing. Furnished to a high standard and very clean and welcoming when we arrived. Would definitely go back again and would recommend to a friend. Phil and Karen provided great customer service and very professional to deal with. Thank you.

Fantastic Villa set in beautiful gardens

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in a number of great properties properties in the Andalucia/ Costa del Sol region over the past 5 years and this is definitely the best.

The villa has all the facilities you could want with spacious and well appointed rooms throughout. We had a group of 6 including 2 couples and 2 children (aged 18 and 11) and there was more than enough space for everyone. The balcony from the Master bedroom was really nice and had great views over the gardens and out to the sea.

The villa was also clean and well managed with Phil keeping in touch with all the details that we needed throughout the booking process. Phil also kept in touch during our stay, making sure that everything was ok.

The large gardens were beautiful and the access to the pool area was ideal. The pool area itself is lovely and clean and in the fortnight we stayed I can count on one hand the amount of times anybody else was using it, making it feel like a private pool for the most part of the holiday.

The large outside terrace was a great relaxing area with lovely views down to the sea. It was ideal for breakfast, lunches, BBQ's and having a drink or two on a night! There was a large dining area inside the Villa but we never really used it as the outside area was so nice.

The villa is set in quiet cul de sac type arrangement making it very private and relatively unoverlooked. It is approximately 5 mins drive from the beaches (Andys Beach was our favourite), however you can walk down to the lovely Cabopino port area in approximately 20 to 25 mins where there is a great selection of restaurants. There are a couple of small restaurants on the way (Cabo Pizza and Da Bruno) that you can have a drink in if you need a break on the way. The walk back is uphill so we sometimes took a taxi back for about 10 euros per car.

Car hire is definitely recommended as there are many great restaurants and areas to visit if you have a car. Some of our favourites are Benahavis Village with it lovely streets and many great restauarants; Mijas with it's Bull Ring and great views over the costas; Ronda with a spectacular gorge and breathtaking drive; Guadalhorce/El Chorro the beautiful serene lakes with pedalo and boat hire.

All in all I can't really recommend this Villa too much. All of our party agreed on how fantastic it was and how we ALL definitely want to come back again.

Thanks again Phil and Karen for such a great stay.

'Home from Home' in the sun

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at 'Casa Batty'. It was a true home from home which felt more like borrowing a holiday home from friends than a rental!. It was immaculately clean with helpful instruction notes and a welcome pack in the fridge .Bedrooms are large and airy and bathrooms a joy with plentiful hot water. The kitchen is well equipped and the large BBQ fed family and friends with ease. Linens and towels are of good quality and plentiful. The garden is very private and as with other reviews we had the 'communall' pool through the garden gate to ourselves! Despite it being late July the house and garden caught the breeze so we hardly needed to use the air con at night. The terrace off the master bedroom is a haven to watch the sun go down ( or escape teens!). The downstairs terrace is always shaded with generous furniture and plenty of space and seats to enjoy meals al fresco. You do need a car, but the beach and supermarkets etc are only a 7 min drive, its walkable in about 20 mins but there's a very steep hill on the way home!. Whilst we didn't need to contact Phil during our stay his ' check in ' texts were appreciated. We'll be back we hope! P.S. Special thanks to the gardener for the delicious tomatoes passed over the back hedge and the conversation in 'spanglish' about the flock of parakeets in the palm trees!.

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 order...it 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.
