“Gorgeous & immaculate villa”
Reviewed June 30, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The villa owner John was quick to respond and extremely helpful with all of my queries. He was kindly flexible, and the whole booking process was seamless.
On arrival to the villa, the first thing I noticed was the clean, fresh smell, before we looked around a beautifully bright and airy villa.
The facilities are all there, an ice making fridge, full kitchen, air con, dining area, music system with music, books, TV with DVD’s, iron, towels, and bed linen already made up on the beds.
The outside area, with working fridge, was simply beautiful and I don’t think any pictures will do it justice but I’ve added a couple.
We would highly recommend the villa, and are already considering a return trip next year!

“Stunning !”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Villa Sophia is fabulous - the rooms are very spacious and the villa easily houses 10 people without it feeling cramped.
The bedrooms are roomy and the beds extremely comfortable.
The villa is well equipped and there was everything you could possibly think of or need in the kitchen. The 2 dishwashers were a Godsend especially as we had additional family visit for supper on their way home from work!!
The pool is amazing, the water was cool (not cold) and very refreshing.
Gardens are very well kept, we even had a visit from the Gardener mid week. The gardens include a fig tree and we (the kids) spotted a few lizards lounging around in the sun.
The weather was fantastic, really hot so the pool was refreshing and welcome.
The area is quiet and tranquil and the ideal place to chill out and recharge your batteries.
You do need a car though and once you've braved driving on the Spanish roads then you soon get your bearings and can find everything that you need quite locally.
The nearby locations of Mijas, Marbella, Fuengirola and Puerto Banus are wonderful and well worth the visit.
John was extremely helpful and always got back to us if we needed any queries answering.
Would we return to Villa Sophia - ABSOLUTELY !!!!!

We absolutely loved this Villa and we had such brilliant holiday. Thank you !
The Villa is extremely spacious and is just perfect for a large group. It's clean and tidy and has everything you could need and the beds were comfortable with great AC in all bedrooms . ( The 5th room , which was more of a roomy hallway didn't have AC and had a small double fold down sofa bed .Luckily this was where my 7and 4 yr olds were to sleep but the bed wasn't that comfy and as there was no AC they just ended up sleeping in our massive bed with us which was fine ) It wouldn't have been suitable for 2 adults though.
We loved the outside seating areas and pool. There's more than enough sunloungers and chairs with a super BBQ area too.
We would absolutely recommend this Villa and thank you to the owner.

“Amazing Villa!”
Reviewed June 15, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have not long returned from Villa Sofia after 8 on us embarked upon a hen weekend! When we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with how spacious and lovely the villa was. The photos do not do this place justice! I even ensured I took extra photos to show how great this place is. Provides ample towels and bed linen for all guests. As mentioned there were 8 of us but more could definitely easily fit if needed for a few nights! The villa was clean, pool and outside space was amazing! We even left our inflatables here for the next group or family to enjoy! The living room and conservatory were both huge! Bathrooms were clean although hot water took a while to pump through. Although that may have been because 8 girls were trying to shower within half an hour! Air con was great and available in all bedrooms and loving space. Huge TV for you to use and stereo system. John- The owner was extremely helpful offering us everything from local supermarket to take away advice!! This is about 20-25 minute taxi from Puerto Banus and about 15 minutes to Marbella town. Supermarket is a 15 minute walk down the road. Very calm, quiet neighbourhood in the Elviria area. Overall this outdid our expectations massively and everyone in the group fell in love with the villa. It is secluded enough for you to have your own space whilst feeling the security of neighbouring villas. Would definitely recommend visiting! We are already planning our Marbella reunion 2018 and will be hoping to stay here!

Beautiful villa, stunning pool area and very helpful owner. Myself and 7 other friends loved this accommodation and definitely made our holiday. Photos don't do the villa justice in my option, large living room, bedrooms and outside areas. Would definitely recommend.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The villa is amazing, the pictures don't do it justice it all, it is open and spacious with more than enough room for 8 people to comftably stay.
It is close to central Marbella town only around €25 and around €40 to Porta Banus, it is in a quiet and very safe area with a golfing range down the road, the owner is great and very helpful pointed us in the right direction for shops and restaurants sand provided taxi numbers for the area.

All round a great trip and would highly recommend to a family or a group of friends
