We had wonderful time
Valentin is a very kind host! He has welcomed us with a little gift and helped us where he could!
The apartment is clean and very well located.
What still has nothing to do with Valentin but is worth mentioning that the sea in Marbella is always cold! We didnt know that... But the stay was anyway great! Thank you Wim&Valentin
We wanted to stay in a local, residential ambience and we got it with Valentin and Wim. The apartment location is very central and quiet, in a nice part of town where you might actually want to live yourself! It's really close to the beach and the old town. Easy to find and accessible.
We stayed in the attic with its own bathroom. It looked just as described in the photos, with a clean bathroom and good shower. Very warm at night (early September), but the AC worked well. We weren't bothered by any noise.
We didn't get much of a chance to talk to Valentin and Wim as we were pretty much doing our own thing, but we did have some brief chats, especially for recommendations. They were both very approachable and friendly, and if we had been there longer than 3 nights I'm sure we would have got to know them a bit better.
All in all, it was a good alternative to staying in a hotel. For us staying in the apartment and neighbourhood definitely added a dimension to visiting Marbella, and we didn't feel like total tourist outsiders!
Clean place just a stone-throw from the beach. Very nice hosts. If you go for friendly and personal ambiente over high-polished designer fanciness, this is a really good choice.
We spend 4 nights here, a nice place with a big private terrace. Wim and Valentine give you all the privacy you need, gives good advice on stuff to do in the area. They are really nice people and we can only recommend staying with them if looking for at place in Marbella.
I really liked the stay. Super nice and helpful. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Clean Apartment.
Es un apartamento acogedor situado en un fantástico barrio de Marbella, la playa está a un minuto andando, y tienes multitud de comercios, restaurantes, bares, etc alrededor, la urbanización cuenta con dos piscinas y grandes praderas para estar tranquilo, Wim, Valentín y Carmen se adaptaron perfectamente a nuestro horario de llegada, ya que llegamos un poco tarde, y nos atendieron estupéndamente, muchas gracias!
Our stay in Valentin and Wim's house was really great!
The house is very similar to the pictures: beautiful, clean and quiet!
The room is spacious, clean, the private terrace is so fantastic to have a drink (apero) after the beach and before the dinner!
The common terrace is very beautiful and the kitchen is spacious and clean!
The house is perfectly placed! Just 2min walk to the beach, 5 min to the historical center! There are 2 taxi stations near it and buses.
There are bars and good restaurant near the house!
Wim and Valentin are very helpful and friendly! They were very attentive to our thought! They are really fantastic! They were like friends!
We also met Carmen who seems to be a very sympatic woman!
I recommand their house !
Thank you Wim and Valentin for everything :-)
The apartment is placed in a quiet housing area one hour away from the city center by foot. It is a local neighborhood. The room is very small but comfortable. Unfortunately you can't lock the door. The whole apartment is very nice and clean. You have a sufficient equipped kitchen. The terrace is nice for watching the sunset while drinking a "Tinto de Verano". You have a pool in the middle of the residential complex which you can use for free. The supermarkets are a 30 minute walk away down in the city, so it is pleasant to rent a car. There is a Lidl and a Supersol. We haven't met Wim & Valentin but had a great stay at Carmen's apartment. She's a nice friendly host and lets you do your stuff.
If you are looking for a quiet holiday, not directly in the Marbella Centre, I can recommend this small room.
We spent lovely 18 days in Marbella but staying with Carmen was the
worst part of it. Pros of the place:
- safe and quiet condominium,
- the apartment is clean,
- nice garden with a swimming pool.
Cons of the place:
- not every part of the apartment from the photos was available to the
- no locks on the rooms doors,
- no lock on the shared bathroom door (!!!); cheers to the 2 guys I got to
know too well!,
- noise from the A7 autovía.
What we disliked about our stay:
- Carmen only speaks Spanish and makes little effort to speak slowly to
be understood by someone knowing only the basics of the language,
- she said it would be easier for us to be informed about the rules by
Wim and Valentin because they speak English, but she then broke the
rules angrily pointing out it was her house, not Wim's and Valentin's,
- without our permission she moved the stuff in our cupboard in the
kitchen, as well as in the refrigerator,
- when we ate she would come to inspect the pots used for cooking before
we had time to finish our meal, much less to wash the dishes,
- she would remove the guests' towels from the rack after drying without
any notice. Not everyone gets a towel in a unique colour so they
would get mixed up and you would not get your own towel as a result,
- for some reason before doing the laundry she had us show her our
clothes to be washed (?!).
All in all for longer stays we recommend avoiding Carmen due to privacy
concerns not letting one feel at home; it might not be that annoying
during shorter stays, though.
It was a pleasure to host Wim and Valentin. Our communication was very effective and everything went smooth for check in and returning the keys. Place was taken care of and left very tidy. A very good experience.
I truly miss these guests. Prior to their arrival, I was worried about a disrepair - faulty front door as I thought that it could result in a negative review. Wim however offered to, and fixed it as soon as he saw it. Furthermore, they were both very easy to get along with and clean. I should add that they are fantastic cooks. I learned from them that healthy cooking/food tastes great.
They are very highly recommended.
They were very friendly and tidy.
Actually they came back home very late every day so i was very happy.
Ha sido una estancia muy breve: tan solo una noche.
Todo perfecto: comunicación fluida y agradable, y el estudio en perfectas condiciones.
They are very sweet people and welcome back anytime :)
Valentin fue un huesped genial y respectuoso. Fue una pena no tenerlo mas tiempo. Espero que nos veamos por Londres:)
5+ guest. They are very friendly and easy communicate. and make up the bed when they check out. Highly recommend to all hosts of airbnb and strongly hope to see them next time in hk.
they are friendly people
I had wonderful stay at this bnb. Valentin and Wim are fantastic hosts, really welcoming and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious. I would go back and especially in the summer to make the most of the swimming pool and the sea.
Je recommande ce bnb. Les hotes, Valentin et Wim sont adorables, tres accueillants et aimables. La chambre et la salle de bain etaient spacieuses et propres. J'y retournerai tres certainement pendant l'ete alors je pourrai utiliser la piscine commune et irai a la plage.
