Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great stay at Francisco's place with 12 people. Francisco was very helpful and kind in preparation and during our stay. He even provided us with a fantastic small theater in Malaga center to do some exercises with the group. The rooms and beds were good. The whole place was clean. The garden and pool magnificent. At first the kitchen was a bit of a challenge to prepare daily meals for 12 people, but with some gathering of stuff we managed just fine. Quick response, fair price, and completely trustable. Thumbs up for Francisco!

  • We had 5 awesome days in the house of Alfonso! We received a nice welcome from Alfonso and his wife when we arrived and we were able to contact them whenever needed throughout our stay. I even woke Alfonso up on the Saturday morning when the power went down and he came right away to fix the problem!

    The house itself had comfortable rooms and the garden was beautiful! Because we were with a group of 20 in total we did have some issues with the showers when we used all 7 at the same time as some werent working properly with no warm water. I would say that was the only less positive point but other than that it was great!
    Thank you for everything Alfonso!

    Response from Francisco:

    Hi Daphne. Thank's for your evaluation . Just tell you something: my name is Francisco not Alfonso.

  • We had a great time at Francisco's place. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and everything well organized. The whole area of the villa is wonderful, including the pool. The place itself is a bit far from the center, but well connected by public transport. Francisco is a perfect host and helps with tips for going out, interesting sites, and many more.

    For us it was also great that the kitchen / terrace is a perfect place to meet other people. These encounters made our holiday special and unique.

    In summary, we can wholeheartedly recommend this place and we'd 100% book again this location.

  • Casa fantastica en una zona de Malaga privilegiada. Oportunidad para quien quiera descansar y alojarse en lugar tranquilo, alejado del ruido del centro. Francisco responde rapido, acoge muy amable y esta disponible para cualquier cosa que pueda surgir. Recomendaria su casa a un amigo y si vuelvo a Malaga intentare alojarme de nuevo alli.

  • J'ai passé un très sympathique séjour chez Francisco, qui m'a aimablement renseigné sur les adresses des restaurants et autres bars de la ville. Très bonne ambiance dans la maison, digne d'une colocation avec une dizaine de chambres sur 2 étages. Belle piscine avec une île! Propreté correcte.

  • J'ai été ravie de ma première expérience air bnb avec cet hôte . Je n'ai eu aucun problème tout s étant bien déroulé , l appartement et la villa correspondaient exactement à la description . L'hôte est très discret et la villa très agréable et au calme . Propre et dans un quartier agreable , Je vous conseille tout de même de louer une voiture pour bien profiter des environs . Autoroute proche de la villa , ce qui est pratique et la quartier El palo et sa plage sont sympa , d ailleurs mieux que malaguetta . Je recommande vivement ce logement qui nous a enchantés .

  • Francisco and his family are very kind and wonderful people, it was a pleasure to have met them and have stayed at their beautiful villa. My friend and I met some great people during our stay and we would highly recommend Francisco and his villa to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy a quiet respectable retreat.

  • We were 15 students and 3 teachers from Norway who were on a study trip to Malaga and had a stay at Francisco's Villa in the period 24th September to 1st October.

    We couldn't be more satisfied with our stay. The house was nice, the garden and the pool was beautiful. What pleased us the most, was the fantastic hosts. Francisco and his family showed us great hospitality. They helped us more than we could ever expect. Francisco who is an opera singer and his son who is a pianist, even gave us a concert the last evening in their private house. This was a great experience.

    Francisco and his son speaks well English, therefore we had no problems communicating with them.

    We recommend Francisco and his Great Villa with pool and garden (website hidden) var 15 studentar og 3 lærarar frå Norge som var på studietur til Malaga og budde hos Francisco i villaen hans i perioden 24. september til 1. oktober.

    Me er svært nøgde med opphaldet vårt. Huset var fint, hagen og symjebassenget var flott. Det som gjorde sterkast inntrykk på oss var den enorme gjestfriheten Francisco og familien hans viste oss. Dei hjalp oss lang meir enn det vi kunne forvente. Francisco som er operasongar og sonen hans som er pianist gav oss endå til ein privat konsert i heimen sin den siste kvelden vi var der. Dette var ei fantastisk oppleving.

    Francisco og sonen hans snakkar godt engelsk, og vi hadde ingen problem med å kommunisere sjølv om me ikkje snakkar (website hidden) kan anbefale Francisco Arbos og huset Great Villa på det varmaste.
