If you are with more then 10 persons or if you are with less and wish to sleep separately be aware you mention this days in advance so we calculate this, because we need to open and clean this departures as well.
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.
Die Unterkunft war wunderschön und entsprach voll unseren Erwartungen. Besten Dank.
All in all a very pleasant experience. Lovely house in a nice location with a stunning view. The only down side is that cleaning could have been improved (i.e. chair, sofa covers needed washing) and some renovations on the house are necessary(it is noticeable that the furnishing is starting to be run down, for example the kitchen).
What a great (and big) villa very close to Puerto Banus!
We were 11 people, including 4 kids and we all really liked the location and the house. Everybody was able to walk down to the harbor in 15-20 minutes and taxis were available 24/7.
House is big and offers great bedrooms on top floor together with terrace that had enough sun even in October. On middle there is a big living room that we didn't use much as the terrace with sofas and large dining table are so nice, even until late night. Bottom floor has a snooker table, so dial in your snooker knowledge before arriving :-)
Swimming pool was enjoyed by our entire crew and night lighting was awesome.
Overall very pleasant stay and we'll be back...
This was my first experience using Airbnb and a great one at that,
The villa was great with everything you needed, ideally located 10 min walk from to the Port and short bus/taxi drive to Marbella.
Mark was very helpful with all aspects of the booking and accommodating to our needs.
I will be recommending to friends and family.
The hosts (Mark and Natascha) are very friendly and informative (they also provide a very handy "rules book"). The place was very easy to find.
We really enjoyed our stay; the house was clean and came fully equipped with all items needed (towels, kitchen utensils etc.)
The only issue we had was with 1 guest bedroom (the toilet didn't work and the room smelled musty) but this didn't negatively impact our experience.
Overall, it was a fantastic place and somewhere that I will definitely recommend to others.
Thank you Mark and Natascha for enabling an awesome weekend!
