“The setting for a truly memorable holiday”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have rented villas abroad for many years and our experience at Villa Melanie was a wonderful one. The house was very well equipped and immaculately presented. The garden was secluded and the pool, which we had heated (at the end of May) was at a temperature which was a delight to step into. Our grandchildren were 8,5 and 2 . Andy gave us the confidence to be assured that should there be any problem whatsoever (which there wasn't) he would only be a phone call away.. The photographs don't do justice to the beautiful outside dining and lounging areas with views of the Mediterranean. For a memorable family holiday in beautiful surroundings we can recommend Villa Melanie unreservedly.

“Amazing villa with fantastic views”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed for 8 wonderful days at this fantastic villa and had a great holiday. The villa was extremely spacious and impressive and had all you could want to ensure your needs were met. The pool and gardens were also great and the surrounding area was very smart too. The covered outside areas were a great bonus as well.

“Gorgeous Villa and excellent value for money”

person found this review helpful

A group of 5 of us stayed here for a week whilst we were golfing, we had a bedroom each which was really nice. There are 5 large spacious bedrooms with enough bathrooms. I would say for a group of males 10 would be comfortable. It is possible with 12 but it would be a squeeze. Ideal for large families with kids.

There are loads of utensils in the kitchen plates, pots, pans etc. The beds are comfortable. The pool does not need to be heated in summer, it is very nice and refreshing.

There are books, games, dvd's, cards, plug adapters, extension cables and numerous other things you may not have room for in your baggage. There is a large flat screen tv with English sky channels/package in the living room, dvd player and two large sofas to chill on at night.

The BBQ outside it great, it is charcoal if you were wondering. There are 3 different seating areas with enough chairs for around 15 people.

The villa is located a 2 minute drive from the main coastal road, the Las Chapas turn off. The supermarket mentioned is not great for a weekly shop as it is a little overpriced. great if you want bits and bobs though. Go to the Mercadona store a few junctions uptowards Eliviria, that is like our Tesco/Morrisons if you will.

All the other reviews have covered nearly everything. The thing about a coat of paint and the garden needing a water is ridiculous, you get what you pay for. Our group were extremely happy with what we got for our money. The Villa is gorgeous for the money.

The main coastal road in 2 minutes max, It is 15 minutes from Fuengirola and 5 minutes max from Cabopino Port. We found Cabopino to be really nice, there are around 30 bars/restaurants which are more family and friend orientated but you can have a good drink too. Alberts Grill food was amazing.

A few things to bare in mind if you do book.... get the precise address for this villa if you want to book a taxi and take mosquito spray if you outside at night and pick the master bedroom. There is a gorgeous balcony to chill out on and the view is beautiful.

One thing I would advise which is a minor negative, there is no landline broadband with WIFI in the property. Andy provides a mobile WIFI dongle on Vodafone which is ok if one person is connected. Anymore and the connection is really slow. It's not strong enough for streaming music or films.

All in all, book here, you won't be disappointed, from the airport it was 35 minutes, to Banus it was 25 minutes, any where in between is easily reachable.

“Fabulous Villa with great views”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The villa was as exactly as described and some of the photos don't do it justice! It was very well equipped - plenty of beach towels, bathroom towels, kitchen equipment. My son even baked a birthday cake for me! We were a family of 6 adults and 4 children aged 14 months to 6 years old. The villa was very secure and the kids enjoyed the freedom to safely play on the grassed areas and pool. There are automatic security gates to the property and ample parking (we had 3 cars). You do need a car as the villa is up a fairly steep hill, but having said that you wouldn't have got those fabulous sea views. No hesitation to recommend this villa to anyone. One suggestion - Post more photos of that fabulous sea view! Thanks Andy for our enjoyable stay.

“"Modern Villa with fantastic bbq and pool area with a beautiful view."”
Reviewed September 25, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Stunning luxury villa, equipped with everything we needed. The villa was located in a quiet residential area which was not disturbed by traffic or anything else. The Pool and bbq area was absolutely amazing and we could quickly take us down to Marbella town with a taxi ride of fifteen minutes. The house was also very fresh and immuculatly cleaned. Andy was very helpful, advising us of taxi, shops and were to eat. We had a group of 9 away for a 4 day break for out parents 60th Birthday and they were just over the stunned by this beautiful villa and its location. Thank you so much Andy for all you help.

“Fantastic family holiday!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A two week holiday of sun fun and luxury! What more could you want . Our family included 3 boys aged 6 and 7 and they had an absolute ball!! The villa was beautiful, perfect location, absolutely immaculate and furnished to a high standard. Everything you could have wanted was there in the villa. Pool was lovely and ideal for the kids. Andy was always at the end of the phone if we needed him and very helpful. We didn't want to go home!! We will definitely be visiting villa Melanie again in the near future!

“Awesome villa”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Excellent location, in the midst of a lush, multimillion $ development of villas. You need a car, but you can get everywhere from here. Great views, you can see forever into the distance and on clear days you can see Africa! Spacious rooms, great beds, nice pool, extremely clean and very bright and full of light. It's the perfect place to relax, bbq, have nice dinners, explore the Costa del Sol, etc.

Remember this is a self-catering villa, which means you have to bring everything (soap, shampoo, detergent for the dishwasher, garbage bags, sponge for the kitchen sink, toilet paper, etc). You also have to lug out your own garbage, which is the system in Spain. Nitpicking, there are a couple of things that can be improved, like the garden may need more watering, the place could use a fresh coat of paint in places, the kitchen needs an upgrade in utensils (like better knives, they were all IKEA) and appliances, it's lacking if you are a gourmet chef.

All points made will be addressed,the painting referred too mainly in upstairs bedroom will be done early July 2014. The point about the rubbish disposal thats the way it operates in Spain, all rubbish should be taken out to the provided areas on a daily basis!The Villa has been describe as Awesome, best we concentrate on that,we will fix the small points to make sure things improve for our clients.
