House on Los Naranjos de Marbella in Puerto Banus, Marbella, Costa del Sol, Spain - 3 Bedroom Home In Puerto Banus To Rent, 5 Min walk to Shops & Bars, 15 Mins Walk Of A Golf Course
About Pam Andrews
We are a family with four grown up children who all enjoy staying in the house as often as we can!
Pam Andrews purchased this House in 2006
Why Pam Andrews chose Marbella
The house has met all our holiday needs as there is so much for children and teenagers to do. The house is special as is hardly overlooked which gives greater amount of privacy and conveniently situated. There are cafes and a tapas bar next to the supermarket which is conveniently only a couple of blocks walk away from the house. Just opened is a delightful play area for your young ones, something different for them during your stay. Puerto Banus is an easy walk away with its great beaches, extensive shopping, cinema and famous night life! There is parking outside the house, though taxis and buses are easily available for travelling to Puerto Banus, Marbella, San Pedro, Estopona, and all the other lovely towns and villages nearby.
What makes this House unique
We feel so lucky to be able to enjoy this lovely house, as it is spacious enough for us all be together or with with partners and friends. Our stays are always too short and we never want to leave! We have done much to improve the house by upgrading the kitchen, buying the ideal pieces of furniture and spending lots of time gardening, we love the peace and quiet and beautiful smell of the Jasmine sitting in our 'special piece of heaven' along with our lemon tree that produces an abundance of lemons, that is what we miss when we are in the UK, (that and the sun!

Central air, little used pool and lots of outside space
Over two weeks the pool was busy only one afternoon. In the mornings we often had it to ourselves and it is just four houses away so it is easy to pop back (though there is a loo at the pool). It is a reasonable size (10-12 breast strokes per length). There is a steep slope in the middle so while the shallow end was great for non-swimmer children the deep end allowed for diving (or jumping off stacks of sunbeds as other children preferred!).
The pool gets the sun all day, with some shade from palm trees in the morning and afternoon, so was never cold - and sometimes like a bath - in early to mid August.
The sandy beach of Puerto Banus is a five-minute drive and the marina there is well worth a visit.
The supermarket is a five-minute walk.
The dishwasher and washing machine are a welcome bonus.
Good shutters and central air means every room in the house was cool without needing the air con on very much at all.
A travel cot was available for €10 per week.
Over two weeks with two small children and three generations in the same house we didn't lack anything.
Perfect location and lovely house!
We have stayed in the area before at different resorts to this one, but always travelled to the supermarket and taperia restaurant located on the same site as the house on each of our visits over the past few years.
We were eager to find a house on the complex as it is a great location with amenities and a pool a short walk away, plus local towns like Puerto Banus, Marbella and Estepona are a short drive away.
The house had all the amenities we needed for 4 adults, a baby and a toddler. The ability to hire travel cots and a highchair was a must for us and it was all ready for us when we arrived.
The many balconies and the lovely spacious back garden were a real bonus and the pool was a very short walk away and not used by many people at all (in June). Watch out though as it gets deep quite quickly and there aren’t any depth signs to tell you.
Thank you for a lovely stay and we will start saving now to return again!
We are so pleased you found our house has everything you needed for a great family holiday. Having the cots and high chair there when you arrive takes out the stress!
Our house is set up for families and we are pleased you all enjoyed the garden, balcony and terraces, many places to get away for some peaceful time.
We agree the location of the house is perfect as easy walking distance to a great supermarket, taperia restaurant run by two fun sisters and a great health food cafe and a fantastic yoga studio that makes it so easy to dip in and out of. Also so many towns and villages are easily accessible.
We love that our guests return again and again and we look forward to welcoming you back anytime.
Absolutely fantastic from start to finish!
We had a wonderful four night stay at this house at the beginning of October. From the initial enquiry to being dropped off back at the airport, it was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Once we had booked the house, the owner put us in contact with her agent who was very responsive and helpful. On request, the agent was able to put us in touch with a taxi firm to arrange transfers from and to the airport (80 euros each way for 5 people) and also met us on arrival at the house. The house was very clean and well presented with everything we needed for our stay. The terraces were well used in the early evening and there was also a nice outdoor space on the ground floor to sit for breakfast. The bedrooms were very comfortable and the master bedroom was very spacious with an en suite. The swimming pool is shared although we didn't have to share it with anyone else during our stay. It was very close to the house and was kept in immaculate condition.
There was a supermarket in the complex, just a 5 minute walk from the house. We were also able to walk down to Puerto Banus itself (about a 20-25 minute walk) although we did use the bus and taxi service a few times. There are many fantastic restaurants in Puerto Banus and some nice shops as well as the beach. You can take a ferry across to Marbella (it took approximately 25 minutes) where there are more nice beaches and shops (although the shops are nicer in Puerto Banus).
We would definitely like to return at some point in the future and would definitely book this house again. The complex felt very safe and is obviously extremely well looked after.
We love that our guests feel like this after staying in our townhouse. We thank you for taking the time to write a review as it is so helpful for potential guests to know that they will also be so well looked after and have a great time in our house.
Spacious and clean. Has everything you need.
Spacious and clean. Has everything you need. Nice balconies and outside area too. We really enjoyed the pool
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We are so pleased you found the house clean and it was spacious for your family and you enjoyed using all the different outside spaces. We love breakfast on the balcony and sun downers on the terrace!
We do agree, the pool area is really lovely and so well maintained, with lots of comfy sun loungers. It is good to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
Perfect property for a great family holiday
Our family of 6 adults were very impressed with the accommodation. It's very nicely furnished and spacious. The outside space was perfect for relaxing and there is a barbecue. We contacted the property manager (Jane) on two occasions and she dealt with our enquiries quickly. The lovely shared pool was very close to the property and most of the times we used it we had the place to ourselves.
There is a large supermarket nearby and two restaurants next to it. We only went to one of the restaurants (Sisters) which had a lovely selection of Tapas and a great menu. There is also a Tennis Club which has a lovely pool (separate children's pool) and restaurant, again with a good selection of snacks/meals.
Overall we had a great holiday and we would certainly recommend this property to family and friends.
Many thanks to Pam and Jane.
Thank you for taking the time to review our home. We are very pleased you enjoyed your holiday so much and look forward to welcoming you back again.
Gorgeous Villa - Perfect Location!
Such a great find - from the outset communication with the owners was faultless, questions always answered quickly with really helpful info. On arrival the villa was beautifully appointed, very clean and exceptionally serviced. The bedrooms were great sizes, well maintained and tastefully furnished. The outdoor space was fab with a garden perfect for al fresco dining, a large balcony on the second floor and even a roof terrace for when the beach seemed too much like hard work! Linen and towels were included and there was everything in the kitchen you could need. The villa is located in peaceful surroundings for a quiet relaxing break but there's lots of lively entertainment within reach – would definitely recommend this property!
We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay and were so lucky with the sunny weather so early in the year. So good you appreciated the little improvements and additions we have made in the house. Also pleased that Jane my agent was there to welcome you and to show you around which is such an help when you arrive somewhere new.
Special interest holidays:
On this beautifully well maintained complex, there is the clubhouse which hosts a sophisticated bar and bistro which serves delicious inexpensive breakfasts lunches and dinners.. There is also a large swimming pool and an area with a bouncy castle, and an area ideal for children to play ball games. It is a relaxing place to spend time enjoying a drink and to meet other holiday makers and locals. The newly totally refurbished clubhouse is becoming famous for its entertainments on selected evenings. Paddle tennis courts are available to hire and they are very happy to arrange lessons and the use of racquets. They also run fitness classes which you are welcome to join, for a small fee! If you wish to play tennis there are courts to hire at the back of the complex.
Recently opened is a lovely yoga centre at the side of the restaurants and supermarket, where you can literally pop in for a session. The views of the mountains from the studio is breathtaking and all sessions are run in English. There is also a masseuse next door.
The Costa del Sol, which translates into english as Coast of the Sun, is a region of Southern Spain. As the name implies, the region consists of the coastal towns and communities along the Mediterranean coastline found in the province of Malaga.
There are numerous attractions and activities to enjoy along the Costa del Sol.
The Costa del Sol has become a popular destination for foreign tourists not only for its beaches but also for its local culture, with the quintessential flamenco playing an important role. The area is particularly famous for its towns like Marbella, which provides the Costa del Sol with its reputation for being a playground for its super-rich and famous visitors. Marbella Old Town is somewhere not to be missed.
Recently opened is a large supermarket on the complex which is so convenient that it will be just a two minute stroll to get all your provisions. Next door to the supermarket is a great tapas bar, we haven't found cheaper drinks! This is open from morning to night that also offers free wifi and next door to that is a delightful health food cafe with delicious meals to tempt you. Also less than 1km away is a supermarket open seven days per week 24 hours a day for all your basic needs along with many bars, clubs and restaurants, before you arrive in Puerto Banus itself.
The area is well known as an international tourist area, surrounded by golf courses, beautiful beaches, lovely mountain views, exciting nightlife and extensive bars, restaurants some around the picturesque harbour not to mention the fabulous designer shops and those with a more modest pocket! On Saturdays there is a large local market at the bullring in Puerto Banus and you can find markets in all the surrounding towns on most days of the week. You can find a list of all of these in our house.
