About the property

Villa near Puerto Banus, Marbella, Spain - Peaceful, 15 Minute Walk To The Beach

Villa Andaluz is a very large, luxury private villa located near Puerto Banus on the Costa del Sol that boasts 330 days of sunshine and 200 miles of beaches.

The villa itself is booked out annually for 40 + weeks with about 40% of the bookings each year coming from guests who have been at least once before. Our guests range at times from 2 people in a party to 12, and therefore we have a tariff schedule that reflects this and that we send to you, so please ask for a quote as we simply enjoy sharing the villa with both our existing guests as well as those who have not stayed before.

We offer a place that you, together, with your family and friends can enjoy; including the privacy of the villa and its terraces, large garden, heated swimming pool and the comfort of this beautifully furnished villa fully equipped with all the mod cons.

Relax on the terraces or eat alfresco while enjoying the sea view, or take a walk to the beach, shops or local restaurants. There is also a WIFI connection, satellite TV with SKY channels including sport, Freesat BBC 1- 4, ITV 1-4, Swedish, Norwegian and Irish channels and for further entertainment in 2015 we provided the ping-pong table for the garden.

Internally, we have just added a large walk-in shower to the family bathroom on the bottom floor and for several seasons now we have had a hot water external shower located in a private courtyard in the garden.

One guest of many summed up our place very well; 'We really enjoyed our visit in Spain, the house was just amazing and everything worked out to the very best. Thank you!'

About Anne Garnett

Anne is an architect responsible for the house and all the internal decorations and high class furniture while Rob spent most of his life in the Pharmaceutical business and latterly as Chief Executive of a Norfolk Council. The property is managed with the help of local skilled staff, so it is very much a family affair and everyone has worked together for a long time and our main interest is to see that all our guests have a wonderful holiday.

Anne Garnett purchased this villa in 2005

Why Anne Garnett chose Estepona

We spent a long time looking at all the locations on the Costa del Sol and chose Paraiso because of the excellent micro-climate, being so close to the beach, shops, restaurants and Puerto Banus and Marbella. In order to make it a year round location we installed a heated swimming pool and private gardens to soak up the sun. It is easy to get to from Malaga, Gibraltar, Granada and even Jerez airports and plenty of private parking.

What makes this villa unique

One guest summed it up by saying "that it was better than a 5 star hotel with all the privacy you could ask for and meal times that suited us-utter luxury".

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The photographs are good but nothing prepares you for the WOW factor when you arrive, see the facilities and the pool and the setting is just SO peaceful. We struggled to get the kids out of the pool they loved it so much"

"Already booked to come back next year-says it all"

"Superb and even better than we imagined and so close to shops and restaurants and yet so quiet-the kids just loved the pool and all the space"

One of the best places we have stayed

  • 5 of 5

This is undoubtedly one of the best places we have stayed.... And we've stayed in many other villas in the area, over the years!

From the initial booking to the time we left, nothing could have been more perfect.

A huge thank you to Anne and Rob for providing such a wonderful place to stay. We're already looking to book for next year!

From first enquiry everything was very smooth and completely painless. The communication from Rob and Anne was without doubt the best I have had over many years booking Villa holidays.

The directions were excellent and helped no end. When we arrived at the Villa, Rob was there to greet us and gave us a guided tour. If you think the Villa looks good in the photos then wait until you see it in the flesh, it is beautiful!

We spent most of the time around the pool which is very clean and because it is heated we became very crinkly because of the time spent lazing on the lilos. Eating outside is a joy either downstairs by the pool if you are barbecuing or on the middle floor terrace if cooking in the very well appointed kitchen.

The penthouse suite is fantastic, a perfect place to kick start the day with a cup of tea before falling into the pool for the rest of it.

There is a good butchers (Liam's) and numerous restaurants in the parade at the bottom of the hill, about 10 minutes walk.

Overall, if you're looking for a beautiful Villa where you have the choice of enjoying fantastic amenities or eating out then you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful relaxing Villa. It had everything we needed and more. The kitchen is set up for people who like to cook. The beds were comfortable, all the seating areas were lovely. The pool was lovely and warm. The welcome pack was really appreciated, it had all the supplies we needed for the first night.

The kids (11 and 15) had a fabulous week and the Adults felt well rested and happy. The villa is in an ideal place to explore the local area, however a car is essential.

I would love to come back next year for another holiday.

Owner's Response: To Elinor, We are delighted that you and your family had a lovely holiday in Villa Andaluz and you all would be very welcome to return. I will let Experience Group know as they clean the house & terraces from top to bottom which is quite a job and also Maddi Duffy who you met at the "meet & greet," as well as Lewis & Jo who garden for us and maintain the external furniture. It makes it all so worthwhile when we hear how much a family holiday has been enjoyed and many thanks for taking the trouble to write a review. Our best regards, Anne & Rob Garnett 21/04/2014
