Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $1,094.15
  • Cleaning $273.54

Notes:

NB We change our prices regularly, like low cost airlines.

The prices quoted include all expenses (except electricity over €100 per week, pro rata, plus a maid service/cleaning fee of €250 payable to our staff during your stay). IMPORTANT NOTE: HomeAway's system does not calculate the Security Deposit in line with our standard terms & conditions. Notwithstanding the Security Deposit published by HomeAway's system, the Security Deposit will actually be 25% of the total price charged, except for lettings of more than two weeks, in which case the Security Deposit will be 25% of the total price, reduced pro-rate to two weeks. In the case of long term stays, we will ask for any excess consumption over the electricity allowance to be paid to us on a fortnightly basis.

Please note that we do not accept hen or stag parties, nor will we contract with a person under 25.

Sadly, we are no longer able to accept credit cards.

Car: Recommended

Beautifully located with stunning seaside views, some 5 minutes from beach, 3 minutes from local shops and restaurants (no need to go on the coastal highway).

Visit the shops, restaurants and bars of nearby Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona

45+ golf courses within 45 minutes drive, including Valderrama, Sotogrande, Las Brisas and adjoining Marbella Golf

The tennis club is only some 3 minutes away.

Within 2 hours or less are the cultural marvels of Alhambra at Granada, Ronda, Seville/Sevilla, Córdoba, Cádiz, Gibraltar and Málaga (Picasso's birthplace).

Morocco is only 35 minutes by fast ferry from Tarifa, where you may also enjoy the best surfing, wind and kite-surfing in Europe.

The Costa del Sol caters for a great variety of sports other than golf and tennis - nearby Funny Beach offers go-karting, quad biking and activity entertainment for children.

We can provide catering in-house if you want to hold a party or dinner-party effortlessly. Try our Tapas & Paella evening - there is a menu on our private website mystays [dot] net.

Golf: This villa is especially suited to golfers. It adjoins Robert Trent Jones Snr's Marbella Golf, which itself adjoins Santa Clara golf. Río Réal, Marbella's oldest course, is 5 minutes beyond.

The rest of the coast from Valderrama & Sotogrande to Málaga overflows with courses to suit all players' needs. Santa Clara also features excellent practice facilities.

The house is the Spanish base of The Pocket Guide to Golf Courses team. The Spain & Portugal volume was written in the Blue Bedroom. A free copy of the book is given to every golfer staying at the house. We are extremely well connected within the Iberian golf world, and can arrange tailor-made golf or golf and culture holidays, from a self-catering basis right through to a tour hosted by golf playing/course design/photography professionals, as suits the requirements of the party.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: - I am a real estate developer and investor, and am also involved in publishing, media and photography. - The houses we rent in Marbella, Tuscany and Cornwall are all our private homes and we invite you to enjoy them as if your home from home.

Why the Owner Chose Marbella, Málaga, Spain:
- Location, location, location: outstanding views, hi-quality build (German construction company), huge garden, peace, panoramic yet secluded jacuzzi, quiet yet close to everything in Marbella and with immediate golf course access. - I have been coming to Marbella for some 25 years: there are very few properties which combine all these features and such spectacular views. That made the decision to purchase very easy.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
