This is our 2nd time back at the old Marbella townhouse and just as fab as the 1st.

Perfectly situated. Turn right and you enter the hustle and bustle of the old town shops, bars and restaurants. Turn left and you are just a stone's throw away from the magnificent sandy beach. Shut the door at night and it is perfect tranquillity - what more could you ask for.

As we have said previously, Rachel and David are perfect 'landlords' and are certainly living the dream in Marbella - we do envy you both.

We look forward to returning very soon as it is one of the best equipped holiday rentals that we have stayed in.

Tip - Parking can be a nightmare in Marbella. If you are taking a car why not pre-book a guaranteed parking space. We booked Marbella Center car park via "Parclick". It is literally 2 minutes from the house located beneath the Playa Princessa Marbella hotel. We paid 90 Euros for the week. You can drive on and off as many times as you want and being underground parking your car is always nice and cool. Give me a shout if you want any more info on this.

Liked best: Location for sure
Liked least: Occassional smell from drains in the little courtyard. But that is just a general observation of Spain anyway.

We stayed here for a week on our honeymoon after getting married in Frigiliana. The apartment has everything you need and is in a superb location, metres from the beautiful old town of Marbella. We would definitely recommend staying here!!!!!
Very helpful owners too :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The location of the apartment is ideal, with just a few minute walk to the centre of Marbella town and a similar distance to the beach. The apartment itself has everything you could need from UK TV channels, wifi to toys for the kids. The owners were very pleasant and helpful

Sorry for the late review of this property. Stayed with my husband and two children in late September, 2014. This was about our 10th time in Marbella but first time at this apartment. Booking this apartment was very easy and quick and Rachel got back to us very quickly. A taxi was arranged for us to pick us up at the airport and when we arrived at the apartment Rachel was there to explain everything to us. The apartment was exceptionally clean and there is lots of storage etc. It has everything you need from dishwasher tablets to parasols for the beach which was just a short stroll away. I would highly recommend this apartment and would definately stay there again.

“Fantastic apartment in a superb location”
Reviewed May 25, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I had a fantastic stay in the apartment. It had everything you needed and made it feel like 'home from home'. The apartment was clean, well presented and Rachel met me there to explain everything. The beach was a three minute walk away with loads of restaurants, cafes and chiringuito's serving great tapas, paella and barbecued fish. If you felt like a walk the Paseo Maritimo goes to Puerto Banus with great views over the Med.
Local supermarkets, butchers, pharmacy and greengrocer are three minutes walk away and have everything you need for your stay. The winding streets of The Old Town are again only five minutes walk away with small independent shops, restaurants and cafes. You can easily spend a day window shopping and having a few tapas, cervezas or a glass of wine. As detailed in the info folder in the apartment, Plaza de Naranja restaurants and bars are expensive and tourist traps so seek out little bars in the side streets. I found them much better and great food.

Would I go back again ..... Most definitely and will probably make it a yearly trip.

“Excellent Choice for Old Town Stay”
Reviewed April 13, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I stayed for 6 weeks at the Calle Rio Appartment.I can only echo the previous very positive comments.This place is absolutely clean and everything is in good working order.Beyond what was said in other reviews I found the owners to be extremely helpful and accessible.We had a few very cold days and Rachel brought a very soft and warm cover for my bed, which is even better than what I have at home.Because of the owners willingness to help I recommend this appartment especially to people who are visiting the area for the first time and need a little assurance.During Holy Week all the processions walk by just around the corner form the appartment, a perfect place to watch.
