A group of 10 of us stayed for a long weekend at Mark's villa. It was a great villa. The location is very good (10 minute walk tops to the main strip), the house was clean and organised and there was a lot of space. This is a big villa with a lovely pool area, lovely scenery from the garden and great relaxing areas (including a games room with a pool table and bar). Overall a great stay and we would definitely recommend it to others.
The location of the villa is excellent. Just a 10-minute walk down to Puerto Banus and only one minute from Centro Plaza with restaurants, bars and shops.
The contact with Mark was smooth and with the service company as well.
Our biggest problem was a bad smell (moist/mold) in both of the apartments (not the villa). I told Mark about this when I visited the house a few months earlier but nothing had been done. You get the feeling that the villa is wearing down a bit but other than that we had a nice week.
This was the best accomodation I've stayed in with Airbnb. Excellent facilities, excellent location and very easy to deal with hosts. The villa is as beautiful as the pictures suggest.
wunderful house, great located, nice interieur, very friendly rental stuff! Thank you very much Mark!
Following our recent visit to the Villa our group has mixed views;
First off when contacting Mark he was very responsive, however after booking and contacting him on 2 other occasions I still have no response till date. Luckily he included his partners phone number in the confirmation receipt who I contacted & was very helpful.
Once we arrived we had to liaise with the letting agent Virginia who again wasn't the very helpful & the guest found quite rude.
We wasn't shown how a number of amenities operated and when we approached her at her office she fobbed us off.
The Wi-Fi did not work during our stay even after numerous requests to have this fixed (assume the owners have no longer pay to have a phone-line).
The Sauna didn't work for 24hours until an engineer arrived the next day to fix it.
The Pool was filthy an was told by the agent that it was cleaned 'yesterday'. Not sure why it wasn't cleaned that morning or if they'd left the scope for us to clean ourselves.
The side apartment also smelt awful and were told to leave the door open for the day which is not ideal after a long days travel when guests want to settle down & relax.
To cap it off, upon our return we found one of the guests left a pair of trainers in the living room. When I contacted the agent they replied to tell us that they had already found and thrown the trainers away. Surely they should have contact us prior to throwing them away.
5 Star place with 0 Star service.
Personally I felt the Villa wasn't very managed by the letting agent as all these small small issues should have been taken care of prior to our arrival, and not during.
All in all we did enjoy the villa, it was spacious and a great locations to the supermarket, bars, clubs etc, however please ensure that the amenities are working before you arrive.
Great house with a great view and a nice pool. Service was good, as we got instant feedback by phone when we had a few (minor) questions). All bedrooms are of good quality, even though somewhat small (tall Dutch guys speaking here). Fantastic location at the main street uphill from Puerto Banus (10 min. walk to the marina) with several great golf courses within a 10 mins. drive. Supermarket and bakery around the corner, and plenty of places to have a very (very) late night drink :-). Would recommend this to anyone looking for a combination of luxury, party, golf and relaxation.
