Beautiful Villa, Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mara is an outstanding, well equipped villa which sits in a quiet urbanisation and has easy access to excellent local bars and beach front restaurants.

The villa itself has all the necessities to ensure a comfortable stay plus many nice to haves such as SKY package on a large flat screen TV, gas barbecue, fully equipped kitchen, complete with dishwasher and corkscrew (often missing).

The garden at the rear of the property houses a large swimming pool, which is cleaned regularly and it offers complete privacy for the occupants.

The Villa is clean and the owner has obviously spent time and money to keep the facilities modern and up to date. Beds are comfortable, rooms are spacious and the owner was helpful both before and during our stay. He provided short instructional videos on the alarm system and TV package controls.

There are a lot of villas out there but Casa Mara proved to be a real winner which I would recommend to anyone without hesitation

Second Visit - Better than Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Another fantastic stay at this beautiful villa in Marbesa, we (four friends) visited a few years prior. The property owner has clearly invested over the years to keep it up to date and make significant improvements.

The villa itself has everything you require and more. The pool is fantastic and private from neighbours, more importantly the garden/sunbathing area gets the sun all of the daytime. The kitchen has all the facilities to dine in if you wish, with a barbecue outside and ready to use (which we did alot!). We especially really liked there was a ping pong table and English satellite on the TV for the nights in.

Location wise, the villa is just a short walk from a local supermarket, restaurants and the beachfront. Marbesa is a beautiful quiet resort placed perfectly in between the excitement of Marbella and the towns of Benalmadena and Fuengirola. We did hire a car and would suggest you to as the taxis were not reliable in the peak times.

Finally, what has impressed me most (on both visits) was the level of service from the villa owner (Christiaan) and the local villa manager (Coral). I especially appreciated the instructional videos provided to operate the alarm system, TV Satellite and Indoor/Outdoor bluetooth sound system. Generally both were excellent, quick to respond to queries, friendly and ready to provide any advice.

Look forward to visit number three.

Lovely family villa

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 1 week in May 2016 as a family of 4. Thoroughly enjoyed our week in the clean and private villa. Home comforts like washing machine, dishwasher and BBQ were fantastic. Felt safe with the added bonus of the alarm system. The pool/outside area was perfect and very private. Walking distance to a couple of lovely restaurants and bars. A maintenance issue that occurred during our stay was dealt with efficiently and with minimal disruption. All in all it was a great week and I would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was the first holiday for five years with family. I couldn't have picked better. the place was wonderfully situated, it was clean, spacious, BBQ, near shops and supermarket, a little beach - not that there was much need as the pool was so lovely.

Just a fantastically restful week, and will definitely be booking again. the agent was also excellent.

Couldn't recommend it more!

Great family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We've recently returned from Casa Mara on a family holiday. 1st impression of the villa was fabulous! Owner was great with communicating with us & gave us all information needed. There was 3 local supermarkets all in about 10mins walk of villa & 2 larger ones a short 10min drive away, we actually went nearly everyday for fresh food to the local supermarket

. The villa was like home from home with everything you need.

Like 1 of the reviews says it just needs a few repairs here & there just like home would & a few thing are looking a little tired but it does look like the owner is starting to renew things. The shower room was clearly brand new & was lovely!! You don't exactly need a car as lots of things are close by but if your wanting to venture further afield then I would recommend to do so. All in all couldn't fault it & would defiantly recommend & return to Casa Mara, maybe next year!

Great villa, fab location

  • 4 of 5

Great villa, stayed for 2 weeks in July with 4 adults and 2 children (1.5yrs & 3yrs).

Everyone had a great time, short walk to local supermarket which you can get your everyday basics from, and about a 10min drive to local lidle which was great VFM. We didn't hire a car but be aware of local cab services, we hadn't stayed in a villa in Spain before only hotels and wasn't aware that the taxis will only collect you if you are in their area, unfortunately the taxi driver didn't tell us this on our first venture to the lidle and the lady at the taxi office just kept putting the phone down on us when we called for taxi to get back to the villa, luckily a lovely Spanish lady spotted us stranded with a trolley of shopping and helped us get a taxi.

The villa itself was great. Very clean with all the luxuries you would have in your own home. Garden toys were most appreciated and the kids loved them.

Would highly recommend a visit to simbads restaurant by the beach about a 7min walk from the villa, great setting and very child friendly. Food was amazing.

Would advise the owners to leave out a visitors book that everyone can write in at the end of their stay with comments and top tips, and putting together a ring binder with villa / local information that guests can refer such as alarm instructions (to refer back to as was a lot of information to take in when you have just arrived after traveling with 2 babies) and list of local restaurant with directions of how to get to them etc.

There was a few running repairs needed to the villa but just small bits that you would have in your own home.

All in all a lovely villa in a quite area with Good local amenities and no need for car hire. Great holiday
