"Fantastic apartment great location"
Left on 06/30/2015 for a stay in June 2015
We have just returned from a great weeks holiday at apt 19 Tee5 we would recommend this apt to anyone who like to have classy accomodation with all the comforts of home. The booking through the owner was seamless from start to finish and a pleasure to deal with.You will need a car but with the location central and maximum 20 mins drive to Marbella 10 mins to the beach or Estapona and Benahavis great for golfing walking cycling or just general relaxing by the pool
We just wished we had booked for 2 weeks and will definatley be top of our list when we return to the area

"This Beach-house was great. Exactly like shown on pictures. it's cosy and clean. Location is also great, very close to the beach about 50 m, apartment near to Marbella town- about 15 minutes drive. We did used all the resorts facilities including gym, adults only swimming pool, etc. We had wonderful time. Natalia was very helpful. She had answered our questions very quickly and made sure we had everything what was required."
"Amazing villa and staff"
Left on 06/08/2015 for a stay in May 2015
I am just back from a short stay at this Villa with 3 of my sisters, we had a fantastic stay, the villa is amazing inside and out! designed to a very high standard and immaculately clean. The garden area and pool are very spacious and I particularly enjoyed a little swing on the hammock after a few too many Sangria!!!
The staff were also amazing, the food prepared by Dario was delicious and the cleaning done everyday by Jeanette meant we did not have to lift our fingers which was exactly what we wanted.
Silvio - the owner of the property was absolutely brilliant, he really went above and beyond to ensure we all had an enjoyable stay, anytime we needed anything he was only a phone call away. I will definitely be back to this villa and possibly like to view any other villas he is renting.
Many thanks for an amazing holiday :)
A gorgeous resort town in southern Spain, Marbella is one of the most luxurious and popular destinations on the Costa del Sol. This classy seaside city is built for relaxation and recreation. Here, Spaniards and other Europeans spend their days sunbathing on the jewel-like Mediterranean beaches then spend their evenings dining in the city's chic eateries. Located on the water, Marbella is also a popular port for sailing and yachting in the Mediterranean Sea.
Although Marbella has been developed for tourists, there is still a charming Old Town in the city's central district, where you can see the distinct Andalusian influence. Wander among historic pastel-colored buildings over cobblestone streets, pop into a centuries-old church or dine al fresco among an elite crowd of visitors. For food lovers, Marbella is a wonderful destination, with over 600 restaurants, tons of fresh seafood, and several Michelin-starred restaurants.
If you are interested in browsing through designer label clothing, Marbella's boutiques feature some of the most famous names in fashion. There are also a number of upscale gallery spaces in town, some of which feature excellent contemporary work. For a distinctly Spanish experience, visit Marbella during the Feria de San Benabe in June, when you can enjoy typical dancing, music, and food from Andalucia.
In and around the town of Marbella, there are several interesting sights, including:
- Patio de los Naranjos: The main square in Marbella's Old Town, the Orange Tree Court is a hub of activity from morning until evening.
- Paseo Maritimo: Enjoy the gift shops and boutiques along this lovely wooden boardwalk in Marbella's harbor.
- Puerto Banus: Marbella's most famous beach boasts a large marina for yachting, wonderful restaurants, and chic sunbathers.
- Roman Villa: In the neighboring town of Rio Verde, you can visit a Roman villa built during the 1st and 2nd centuries and adorned with striking mosaics.
- La Concha: Ascend La Concha, the highest peak above the city, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of Marbella and the sea.
- Gibraltar: Take a short drive from Marbella to see the famous monolith, the Rock of Gibraltar, which stands over the sea.
As many of Marbella's vacationers would agree, a luxury vacation rental in the city's upscale residential neighborhoods will be the best way to really relax. Look for a comfortable condo or modern apartment, with access to a private pool and hot tub. For utter pampering, rent a villa near town, where you can watch the sunset over the sea.
