Guadalmina Villa Rental Photos and Description
Walking distance to restaurants, supermarket, beach, Golf

Large 4 bedroom villa surrounded by gardens that have been landscaped beautifully. The villa has a perimeter wall, electric gate for extra privacy and a covered parking area for cars. At the end of the garden there is a covered area with a gas BBQ and ping pong. The villa has indoor and outdoor dining for 8; there is a private pool that is well maintained and checked on a regular basis. Next to the pool there is a beautiful terraced area with plenty of sun loungers for everyone to relax and enjoy their holiday. There are also various activities available to play in the garden including badminton. Large kitchen fully stocked. All rooms are large and fully furnished; all have cupboard and wardrobe space for storage of personal belongings. The house has two TV's one in the living room which is a smart TV and enables people to view channels through the internet. There is a small TV upstairs with a DVD player attached. The Villa also has WIFI which is free for guests to use so they can keep in touch. The villa is perfect if all you want to do is stay and sunbathe by the pool as it is well equipped with plenty of sun lounges where you can either lie out in the sun or in the cool of the beautiful and large awnings which come out from the house. The house is also perfectly located for those who want to adventure out to explore all the local towns, amusements, beaches and is also only 45 minutes from Gibraltar. We also offer the added security of access to a safe to further to protect your valuables.

For relaxation you don’t need to even leave the villa! But if you want to go somewhere the closest beach is 20 mins walk. The best beach close to the house would be sun beach which is a short 5 minutes drive down the road to a small town called Cancelada. I would recommend this beach as it is largely unknown so you escape a lot of the crowds in peak time. If you have time it is nice to drive up along the coast road and explore all the different beaches, all very different with some beautiful enclosed beaches as well. The beaches all along the coast have small beach bars and restaurants dispersed among them, a beautiful place to spend a day or an evening enjoying a cold beer or a glass of wine and a meal. We also have a large number of inflatable’s that are good fun on the pool or in the sea. All in all the slow pace of Spanish lifestyle will make going home a very difficult task!

Talking about entertaining for you chef's the Villa has a beautiful open plan kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you might require. The area is full of supermarkets which are wonderfully stocked with fresh fruits and fish so you can really get into the Mediterranean cuisine if you wish.

Entertainment and places of interest: 15 min drive from the villa is the large town of Marbella, a wonderful traditional town where in the old town they have worked hard to keep the town’s original feel. A perfect place to wonder around in and stop for tapas or take a walk along the promenade. get lost in the alleys an stumble upon hidden squares with little Spanish bars and restaurants. Marbella is a true gem that you can never get bored of visiting for a true Spanish experience!

The bustling party town of Puerto Banus (playground for the rich and famous) is 10 mins drive away. Here they have numerous upmarket restaurants. If you want to party there is an almost never ending choice of bars along the strips and also various clubs to select from. Puerto Banus attracts world class DJ's so if you like that type of music it would be worth checking out if there were any upcoming events. Puerto Banus also offers a large selection of boutique shops that you could easy max your credit card at!

More places of interest: The villa is located in the Spanish region of Andalucía, an area with a rich cultural heritage and also spectacular landscapes. Andalucía has had a lot of Moorish influence from the Arabic invaders, this has resulted in some of the most spectacular architecture and art. One of the most famous would be the Al Hambra in Granada 1hr40mins from the house. A castle filled with Moorish art incorporated into the building. A definite must for culture enthusiasts. There are many other towns including the towns of Benahavis and Istan which are closer, both boast wonderful mountain views and walks as well as charming Spanish restaurants. If you fancy yourself for as a bit of an adventurer I would highly recommend climbing la concha (directly behind Marbella) you can drive half way and then it is a 5 hr walk up and down. At the top you have an amazing view of the coasts on both sides of the Mediterranean an experience you will cherish forever.

Although my personal recommendation would be exploring the beaches along the coast and finding perfect hidden beaches, or going and exploring the rivers that go up into the mountains and discovering hidden rock pools. Marbella perimeter of mountains and sea makes it a perfect combination between spanish town and then due to the mountains development can only go so far!

The Villa also has a caretaker based near by who can help you to plan your holiday before you arrive and is there to answer any questions you have during your stay. If you have any special requirements or interests let her know once you have paid your deposit and she will try to help. When you arrive she will also show you around the Villa and the various features to make sure you get the most from your holiday. If you require baby cots please also advise us when you book. The Villa also has a gardener who visits most days and looks after the garden and the pool to make sure it is in perfect condition for your holiday. The garden has an automatic irrigation system which works at night so as not to disturb you, please make sure towels and clothes are not left out on the grass once you go to bed.

Our family currently based out of cirencester in gloucestershire england, We have 3 children, 1 just finishing college, 1 in university and 1 more who is working full time in the cirencester area.

James Hartland purchased this villa in 2006

We had friends who moved to this area of Spain and we used to visit regularly, with a few bad summers that we had received in the UK we eventually made our mind up to buy in Spain. The villa now is beautiful and complete and it is our favourite place to go and spend time on holiday as a family. We created this villa and the gardens and it is a massive part of our family, it was our family home from 2006 to the end of 2009. we only hope that it will provide you, your friends and family with as many joys as it has provided us.

It is the little touches that really make this villa special, when we first bought it the villa and its gardens were completely different! Almost everything was changed about the villa and most of it we did ourselves. (apart from some of the major construction!!) living in the villa and renovating it as we were there was what helped us to create our ideal place. Also being in spain the weather helped us get over some obstacles like when we had the kitchen and living rooms renovated we had to cook outside for 2 months! could be catastrophic in the UK but luckily spanish weather is very forgiving!. All in all what I think makes our villa special is that it was actually our home and we still consider it this way. All of the touches and modifications that were made to the villa and to the gardens were to create a more positive and fun environment for our family. we only hope that you can enjoy it as much as we do!

Wonderful time

My family & I had a wonderful time in this villa as everything we need is here and the sorrounding areas. we have spent most of our time at the villa just relaxing around the pool sunbathing and having some good cooked meals at the BBQ. During evenings if we go out we just walk to the restaurants only 4 mins walk. I enjoyed the saturday market which is just almost outside the gate.

We have enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa. We have visited around costa del sol; estepona, benelmadina, marbella, puerto banus, fuengirola, mijas and ronda.

In Estepona is the very best beach, comfortable and quiet. Benalmadina has got nice amusement park tivoli world, la canada and miramar are good places for people who love to shop. The aqua park mijas is a small but cozy place, especially for families with kids. we also visited the bar down the hill and watched the game of spain vs france, the atmosphere was amazing!!
the villas yard was in good use. we played badminton a lot. we often bbq'd and ate outside. All in all our stay here was successful and perhaps we will meed again.

Thank you family Hartland

ps.
SUOMALAISET, jos menette lahminpaan/kiinalaiseen intialaiseen, muistakaa tilata riisi erikseen!!
Terkkuja espoosta :)

AN IDEAL WINTER GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5

We rented the villa from mid Dec. to mid Jan. to get away from the freezing weather at home. We were delighted with the place, it was very spacious and extremely well equiped and offered everything we needed to enjoy a memorable break. The open plan lounge area has a log burning fire which has a glass door. It provides a lovely feature for evenings in. The weather at that time of the year was mild, with temperatures up to 20*c on quite a few days. the evenings were cooler but still quite mild really and we did have a BBQ with some friends who live locally, one evening.
With free Wi-Fi access in the villa we could keep in touch with people very easily too. We had a friend join us for part of the time and with a downstairs bedroom with en-suite bathroom available, this worked out really well.
If you play golf, as we do, the villa is situated in an ideal position to be able to get to many courses. We certainly enjoyed our time playing in the area.
The owner, James, we found very helpful and easy to deal with and did everything he could to make us feel at home, which we did.
We would certainly recommend the villa to anyone thinking of taking a winter break on the Costa del Sol, we don't think you will be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Dear Peter
Thanks for your kind comments and i am glad you enjoyed your stay. Previously we had not bothered about getting people to stay in the winter months thinking it might be a little to cold for people. I hope you have a successful and healthy 2011 and feel free to contact me again if you want to book another stay.
Regards
James

Superb family villa!

It has everything you would need for a perfect holiday. Nice garden, a patio area, balcony, panoramic views, barbeque, private parking and close location to supermarkets and restaurants. The cleanliness and presentation are excellent. The beach is not far away and with a private pool you won't have to go far for a dip!

Having two young energetic kids, we did lots of exploration around the viscinity. We enjoyed the sceneries, food and weather! Our experience can only be described as perfect. We can't thank enough Arsenia & James for their care and attention. Our family had an enjoyable 2 weeks. It was certainly worth every penny and more. We would definetely return and recommend this villa to our friends and family members.

Perfect Holiday

Wow! so relaxing around the pool. I wish i can share my photo while having siesta on the hammock with a glass of wine compliment from the owner when we arrived next to the pool on 30 Oct 2008. This house has everything, I am working holiday as there's free internet in the villa then go for walk to the beach nearby, walk to the restaurant in the evening. My teenager children just go off to Puerto Banus by public transport for disco & etc. my wife & grandparents go walking at the promenade near the house while am at work then they have their chiringito lunch at the beach. The villa is well equipped as like a home for us. It has everything needed; as the owner Arsenia & James use it as their home too. I walked to the golf club then my wife bicycle to the tennis club. 5 mins drive from the villa is the mountain where we enjoyed walking around the lakes & have a wonderful Spanish meal. We stayed for 2 weeks but we hardly relax as there are so much to go nearby. The owner has put a big box file of places of interest and activities nearby also useful contact numbers which is very helpful. My wife loves the area as supermarket is few mins walk. During evening if nothing to do we play table tennis & badminton. We had few BBQ's too. The house is very spacious & clean. I love gardening so i have enjoyed their garden too. The maid was a bonus as she comes and clean the house for us.

We are coming to stay again next winter. I would highly recommend this house to anyone of my friends in Holland. I enjoyed best is the wonderful food in the area and the friendlinest of the people around. Estepona has a lot of Spanish character & people. Marbella side is more of shopping and any outgoing or beach too. The villa is situated in between of this town.
