About Gary Brown

I have lived in this part of Spain for the the past 8 years, but have owned property here since 2002. My children attend school in Sotogrande, and we run a property management company. We like to make sure our holiday guests have a great time so are on hand to give advise about everything from restaurants to beaches, and golf courses to finding the best places to go shopping. There is lots to see and do and we like to think whatever your interests and priorities we can help you have a wonderful holiday. The weather looks after itself and we can look after everything else.

Gary Brown purchased this villa in 2005

Why Gary Brown chose Manilva

We built this villa in La Paloma De Manilva because of the fantastic views and its proximity to unspoilt beaches whist still only being a few minutes drive away from the lively marinas of Puerto De La Duquesa and Sotogrande.

We also like to eat at the chiringuitos ( beach restaurant/bars ) which are dotted all along the wide sandy beaches.

Another great thing about the area is the number a day trips which can be made to places like Marbella, Sevilla, Tarifa, Gibraltar and even Morocco.

What makes this villa unique

One nice thing is that this villa is my home for 9 months of the year so it is always kept in excellent condition with a luxury kitchen, WIFI, Smart TV with Love Film, Apple TV and so on.

Finally we are both available at any point for help and assistance to ensure your stay with us is perfect.

“beautiful villa”

5 of 5 starsReviewed September 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Beautiful villa in a lovely position. The views were amazing as was the pool. Both Yvonne and Gary the owners were very helpful and had great knowledge of the area. Gary took my son and husband around and showed them the best places to visit etc. The villa was well equipped and was so much bigger than in the pictures. We would 100% return there and recommend it to anyone.

“Relaxing Holiday”

5 of 5 starsReviewed October 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Lovely villa in good position. Ideal for relaxing.

The large outdoor area had plenty of seating and sun loungers spread around the pool. The view over the Mediterranean was spectacular. We ate outside all the time and made good use of the barbecue.

Master bedroom was very spacious with a balcony. There was also a seating area outside of one the lower bedrooms.

Plenty to do in the surrounding area. We went whale watching, visited Seville, a several of the White Towns, Marbella and the local ports. The teenagers in the group spent time on the nearby beach.

Owners were very helpful with information and car hire details. Their children also offered advice on the local nightlife.

We were in total 10 people staying at the villa, from the ages from 1,5 to 60+ years old. Our jaws dropped when we first arrived and saw our accomodation for the next 8 days! The villa is just beautiful, and the views amazing! You can trust the pictures. It is actually better in real life.

It is large, with nice spaciouse rooms. A lot of space outside as well, and we had the option of beeing everyone together at the pool area, or withdrawing at the terrace below or balcony above. It is located only short drives to grocery stores, beaches, restaurants, etc. There were alot of different activies at nearby areas for all ages.

We also recieved great service from the owners. Gary even took some of us for a guide of the area by car so we easily could find what we needed during our stay. The payment and return of deposit went smoothly.

Everyone had a great time, and we hope to return!
