Is a stunning house, with gorgeous views,
There are 3 spacious en suite bedrooms
Modern kitchen with all mod cons included
Dishwasher, microwave, oven, washing machine, cooking utensils, fridge/freezer.
2 double beds, 5 single beds. The house can sleep 9 people, there are 7 beds in total (2 of them being double) However the couch is super large and comfy if someone wants to sleep there too!
The Beautiful Swimming pool overlooks the the view of the coast and surrounding nature (it is shared with only two other houses in private compound)
It is really unbeatable good value and the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sunshine with plenty of evening trips to the fabulous Marbella for some tapas and a walk on the beach...It was bought with the idea of being a retirement/holiday house and now that we have discovered AirBnB renting it out during the time we are not in the house is the best way for us to keep the bills under control and keep the house in great condition.
It is ideal for people in search of a private residence while they explore the exotic 'Costa Del Sol'. It is perched above Marbella in the mountains overlooking the famous coast - one can see all the way from Marbella to Malaga back to Puerto Banus. The house is surrounded by tree's making it completely private and peaceful but a surprisingly short 4-6 minute drive from the buzzing center of Marbella and the famous white sandy beaches of the Costa Del Sol.
- A car is necessary as walking into the centre takes 20 minutes and the slope is steep!
-There is a late check in fee so if you are arriving after 21:00 let us know!
PRICE (updated 01/02/2013)
The price varies depending on the time of year but as every group is different in size and duration of stay it is best to send us a message and we can work it out from there.
Families with children have a more flexible price and infants under 1 years are free.
The house is ideal for groups of friends/ families or 2/3 couples.We are open to making a special price if you are a big group - roughly it is about 20 - 25 euro per person for a large group (5 plus)
Well what can we say? Beautiful beaches, sunshine, the charming Marbella, the Costa del Sol great tapas and wine are awaiting you! Please feel free to message us with any questions you may have. This is THE location for a relaxing, enjoyable and sun-filled holiday of a lifetime...
So give us a message if you need any additional information and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
Saludos and hope to hear from you soon :)

A car is necessary for this house as it is perked up above Marbella on quite a steep slope. It usually takes about 25 minutes to walk into the town centre but it is only a 5 minute drive.
There are taxi's and buses at the bottom of the hill...
Welcome, we only ask that guests treat our place with respect, as if it were their own home and to leave the house as they found it...
Recently a few of our guests left the house so messy it took many extra hours to finish the cleaning, we absolutely want to add that it is important to leave the house as clean as you found it (of course we will change all the bedding and pay for the normal cleaning)
Please wash your own dishes and throw out your own rubbish when you leave
It is important to tell us in advance your time of arrival, and if possible your estimated check out time.
Please treat our furniture with respect and if you break something let us know straight away.
Please only smoke on the terrace/balcony so to keep smoke out of the main areas of the house.
That when you leave the house, everything is turned off - taps, lights, fans etc
If you light the fire be extra careful about leaving it unattended
Thank you for your understanding in advance!
Note: We have a late check in fee, please write to us with your check in time and we can arrange someone to be there at your requested time and you can pay them when you see them. Late check in starts after 9:30 pm in the evening (21:30)
- late check in fee is 30 euro
- late check out fee is 30 euro (max. time to check out late is 15:00 and it is only available if our next guests check in time corresponds)
This is an excellent house and very decently priced. The locality is excellent, the only thing is you need to have a car to get to this house, but we had cars so that was no problem for us.
The house is perfectly well equipped and the view from the balcony is stunning. Its a rather big place and all 8 of us fit very easily in the house. The house was clean.
The host was excellent too. We didn't get to meet her, but she was in constant touch with us through whatsapp and helped us out with what ever it was we needed.
The house is a little bit hard to find, but then the person we were in touch with helped us a lot and google maps also came to our rescue.
But any way, once you reach the house you'll realize it's totally worth it.
The main city centre or Porto Bannus is just 10 mins drive or less. So this places is your perfect vacation house just a little away from the city, with a pool, an excellent view and a great host.
Nous sommes déçu car la piscine était complètement inutilisable à notre arrivée (piscine vide, eau stagnante et croupissante qui faisait le bonheur des grenouilles... échelle cassée...) pendant 6 jours (sur 15 jours réservés)
L'hôte avec qui nous avions échangé la semaine précédent notre départ, le jour de notre arrivé nous signale par texto qu'il pensait que nous arrivions que la semaine suivante !!!! donc ménage fait en catastrophe....
De plus la maison n'étant pas entretenue, l’extérieur était impraticable...
Quel dommage pour une si belle maison...
Cependant, nous remercions Airbnb pour son intervention rapide et efficace...
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
House didnt look Anything like The pictures so didnt stay there and we agreed i would get my money back.
This has not happend yet and now I Can't reach the host any more.
We had a great stay. The views were truely fantastic and the house was charming, even though the house and the surroundings was a bit run down and the garden overgrown. The main door to the house was very hard to open, the stairs into the pool were missing... The location of this house, being high up in the mountains, requires a car, which we unfortunately did not have. The host recommends car - I can only agree and emphasize the need. Being far from stores and garbage disposals, made our stay somewhat complicated.
Regarding the host, it took quite a long time and several tries to get in contact with the host before the trip, and the replies during the stay was at times delayed, so the speed in the reply communication could have been better/faster. In addition, nobody met us at the house, so we had to search for the keys on our own and finally found them hidden outside the house. We would have appreciated having someone meet us at the house that could explain the practicalities of the house, such as utilities, garbage handling etc.
But, all in all, we enjoyed our vacation and had great stay.
Positive - Lovely view.
Negatives - I'm afraid we found the property a considerable let down. The photographs and description on the website do not accurately represent the house as it presently exists, at least during our visit at the beginning of September 2014. Overgrown, unkempt and untidy outdoor areas "complimented" by squashed mosquitos on the walls and ceiling inside. Worst of all the glass in the rear door had been broken leaving a gaping hole from the outside into the kitchen. The least you can expect regardless of cost is cleanliness and safety. We felt unsafe and despite booking in for 5 days left the same evening we arrived.
Madame, Monsieur, Nous avons eu l’information que votre organisation AIRBNB est sérieuse et nous n’en doutons pas. Cependant, si vous continuez à travailler avec des propriétaires comme Flow et Anuk, nous doutons que vous puissiez garder cette (website hidden)-dessous nous vous transmettons nos griefs suite aux 2 semaines passées à Marbella. A vous de juger. Urbanizacion de la Montua 7, Marbella Description de la maison sur le site Internet: magnifique maison avec belle vue, 3 chambres avec 3 salles de bains, climatisation, piscine, jacuzzi, TV par câble, etc. Une belle maison, une vue magnifique. Oui mais c’est tout. Pour le reste, oubliez !!! À notre arrivée à l’heure prévue, personne pour nous accueillir. Par hasard, nous trouvons la clé de la maison sous une statue. Nous contactons Flow par tél. et une demi-heure plus tard, une jeune fille arrive. Elle ne connaît rien de l’équipement de la maison, et communique à Flow que l’eau ne fonctionne pas. 2 heures plus tard, l’installateur fait sa réparation et l’eau est rétablie. Il y a bien 3 chambres, mais 1 seule est ouverte. Tél. houleux avec Flow qui confirme que pour 2 personnes, 1 chambre suffit. Après de nombreuses palabres, quelqu’un vient le lendemain durant notre absence pour ouvrir une deuxième chambre. La propreté de la maison est relative.. A la cuisine, il y a une corbeille pleine du linge sale des locataires précédents. Il n’y a pas de climatisation, il n’y a pas de jacuzzi, les abords de la piscine ne sont pas entretenus, preuve en est les crottes de chiens qui jonchent le sol. L’échelle de la piscine est cassée. Les environs de la maison ne sont pas non plus entretenus. La TV par câble oui, mais 45 chaînes en espagnol et 4 chaînes en arabe. C’est tout. La porte d’entrée de la maison s’ouvre uniquement en donnant un coup de pied au bas de celle-ci. Durant les 2 semaines, nous n’avons jamais vu personne malgré de nombreux tél et mails. La fameuse Lolly dont les vacanciers précédents parlent, n’a jamais répondu à nos nombreux appels téléphoniques. Nous avons communiqué par mail l’heure de départ. Personne n’est venu. Selon le contrat, nous aurions dû payer un montant de 80 Euros pour le nettoyage. Donc merci pour ce cadeau. Nous avons remis la clé de la maison sous la statue comme lors de notre arrivée et somme partis. Suite à nos remarques, nous avons constaté que des modifications ont été apportées sur le site internet. Le jacuzzi ainsi que la climatisation ont été supprimés. Ce n’est pas tout de mettre une belle maison ainsi qu’une jolie vue à la disposition du touriste, il faut également être un minimum disponible au moins lors de son arrivée pour lui fournir quelques informations pratiques. Depuis plus de 10 ans, nous louons des maisons 2 fois par année dans toute l’Europe, et n’avons jamais connu une telle situation. En lisant les commentaires des autres locataires, nous constatons que nous ne sommes pas les seuls à réagir...

About the Host, Nina
Great to meet you!
We live in the beautiful Barcelona and we have discovered the joy of hosting people coming to Barcelona and sharing our experience of the city. We rent several apartments in the old historical centre of the city, and for those on a budget we also have rooms to rent. We offer a personal insight into the city!
The things we love about Barcelona? Sunshine, music, food, the ever creative, moving energy of the people and sitting having coffee in the hidden plaza´s...
Hasta Luego, see you soon :)
