About Barry Mowbray

We bought the Villa at Benalmadena Pueblo on a spur of the moment decision at a Holiday Show in Milton Keynes! We love the location and the modern styling of the property. It suits our large and extended family of 3 x sons and 2 x daughters and 1 x grandson and guests.

It is the only villa we own, so we are very proud of it and make sure it is fully maintained and perfect for your holiday. It is so different to our home in England, such a contrast to our Georgian Manor House built in 1760!

Barry Mowbray purchased this villa in 2007

Why Barry Mowbray chose Benalmádena

We love the area around the villa, it is fairly quiet but close to the village of Benalmadena and the beach. It is ideal for large families or 3 generation holidays.

What makes this villa unique

We very much enjoy the communal gardens and swimming pool. They are very well cared for by the Casablanca community.

Hi Barry,

Just coming to terms with the miserable return to the UK, after wall to wall sunshine for 7 days. Just wanted to say how fantastic our stay with you was. Your staff we very helpful and informative. It was lovely and safe for the children (who loved the pools). We felt very at home and privileged to have stayed in your villa. Looking at dates for next year already. Watch this space!



Fabulous Views, Great Holiday, would recommend the local restaurants at the Pueblo - Alison White commented June 07.



Have already booked to return in November, the most relaxing holiday I've had for years - Gillian Senior Oct 07



We had a really great time, the villa was beautiful

we didn't want to come home, as it had everything you could need. Will definitely be recommending it to friends and hopefully be back ourselves.

Family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this wonderful villa, we are a family of six adults and one infant, on arrival everything was spotless and the whole villa was well equipped, large kitchen and living room. Sitting outside on a barmy evening on the patio on very comfortable furniture, we used the barbecue a couple of times, pool area and games room was also an extra bonus, I would rate this property 4.5 stars, only reason I would not give it 5 is the is the strict rules in the communal pool it was so nice but the life guard was a bit zealous.The location was on a hill between the coast and Benalmedina Pueblo so we had the best of both world's beach and typical Spanish village, my wife and I walked it to the village once, we used the car after that, 2min drive. All in all a beautiful villa, we had a fabulous time.

We had a great time staying in this Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you need for a great holiday , and the views are amazing . The setting is very relaxing even with four children . The villa was big enough for everyone to have there own space . There is plenty of sun beds and sitting areas so no one was on top of each other .the WiFi was great so the teenagers were happy 😊? Kate from bravo was very helpful and Quick to get back to me when I had any questions . The area is hilly but we did walk up to the pueblo a few times and also took taxis up and always walked back . We walked down the hill to take the bus into Benalmádena and the train to Malaga a few times all very easy to get around . I Would definitely recommend this villa and Would love to stay here again in the future . Thanks again Barry .

Fantastic villa, 10 days of luxury.

  • 5 of 5

Villa better than described. It was lovely and clean and up to date. Any problems we had (overflowing pool!) were quickly sorted and we made a great friend in Dennis. Even the taxi strike didn't put a dampers on the holiday. We would next time hire a small car just to do local run arounds though the trains were cheap and easy to use. Thank you for a brilliant holiday we really didn't want to go home.

Great place for the whole family!

  • 4 of 5

This villa was a wonderful place for our family to meet (from Ghana, Scotland and California). We had two small children and six adults and still had a spare twin bed.

A car is a must have at the property especially because it is an extremely hilly area. I walked between 50-100 flights of stairs a day just by walking to places in the area. But, if you are up for the challenge, it means more tapas and vino for you!

There were a couple things that might need some attention at the property, but it was only general wear and tear all houses get. You can tell the owners take great pride in the villa and keep it nice for anyone coming to stay.

Having the kids, it was also great to have access to a baby cot and a high chair! Would only suggest you have extra adults on hand if you have small kids because there are a LOT of stairs.

The pool on the property is relatively small, but good for a cool off. The communal pool is a small walk away and is nice. However when we were there it was only open after 1pm and the lifeguard wasn't there on time on a couple occasions. If you email the owner, you will be able to get the schedule for when that pool is open.

The addition of the pool table and access to ping pong in the house was really fun for the adults in our group.

Make sure you have a sat nav or a working phone with gps as it will be a bit hard to find without it. After two weeks there, we had the area pretty well figured out.

There is also a friendly neighbour (Dennis) who was instrumental in us finding our way around. I would suggest to the owner and management company to update the book and information given at the villa as we had trouble finding and using some things.

The air conditioner was very necessary as there was a heat wave when we went. Understandably it turns off every two hours to save the system from running all day... however on hot nights it wasn't fun to have to go down to turn it on in the middle of the night!

Overall: a beautiful villa with lovely views good for families and groups. Just ensure you have a car unless you are up for a big workout!

Luxury living

  • 5 of 5

A very large and well presented villa with everything you would need. Beautiful views with numerous balconies to enjoy it. A really quiet little neighbourhood and a great communal pool. Didn't bother with a car and found the taxi's very efficient and quick to come. The agents were very helpful too.

Magical Villa

  • 5 of 5

Barry's Villa is truly a place where you can relax and unwind and enjoy those special family moments.

We will be returning in 2017 for our 3rd stay and can not recommend enough the high standard this Villa is furnished to.

We love the outside space, where many a night has been spent with a glass of wine!

The pool both at the Villa and on the complex are kept to a high standard...not a leave is left out of place thanks to the maintenance team who are always keeping busy.

We have also experienced a well looked after holiday whilst staying at Barry's villa and look forward to many more visits!
