“Everything you could possibly want”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Amazing place to stay. All rooms immaculately turned, all with air con. But is still felt very homely. Our daughter who is 6 spent most of her time in the pool and playing pool. There is a shed with games console in, but we were too busy to use it, but an amaziing idea for teenagers. There are lots of toys for the kids to play with and a great range of DVDs to watch. We used the android box to watch tv and listen to music.
Mary the owner was so lovely and very helpful and full of hand hints of where to go and what to see.
Wonderfully located, relaxing in the garden and seeing beautiful mountains surrounding you was wonderful.
Will be seeing them next year.

“An excellent holiday in a lovely villa.”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We have recently returned from 2 weeks in this lovely villa. Mary the owner could not have made us more welcome. Her tour of the villa showed how proud she is of her home and rightly so. We had everything that we needed, from the PS3 that our grandson used, the pool table, the many dvd's and films that were available down to the beautiful pool. There were nine of us and the pool was large enough for us all to use it at once. The villa was well equipped for our every need. We are a family of 9, 4 of which are children ranging from 3 - 10 years old, there was plenty to keep them occupied during the hottest part of the day, when we kept them out of the sun. About a 5 min walk down the road is a restaurant which we would recommend. A car is needed as it is a rural location with shops nearby, and about 30 mins from the nearest beach. We hope to return in the future and once again would like to thank Mary for letting us use her lovely home.

We returned to Casa de Marbilla for our holiday this year and it was well worth the wait. A few changes this year which delighted our boys, the Play Station was set up in the shed which looked impressive. Again Mary the owner welcomed us and had the essentials in for us including beer and wine. The house is immaculate and towels are supplied. The villa is really well equipped for all your needs. We had a lovely relaxing holiday and I love the fact that I have my washing done before I leave. Amazing villa. Thanks to Bill and Mary for the villa again.

From the very first contact with the owners to our final day departure, the Casa de Marbilla experience was a pleasure.

The Villa owners, Bill and Mary, add a personal touch to the stay at their villa began at the booking stage and finished with a goodbye chat when the stay came to an end. In-between, both are happy to deal with any questions and Mary's tour around the villa when we arrived was friendly and helpful. Tea and coffee, milk, bread, water and other essentials were already in the kitchen when we arrived.

The pictures of the villa, on the website and Facebook, are a very accurate representation of the fantastic facilities. As Mary explained, this is a family home that is rented out for part of the year. Consequently, the level of amenities are far better than villas we've stayed in previously. Air conditioning in all but one of the main living and sleeping areas, a pool that delighted the kids and adults throughout the stay, the pool table, BBQ area, outdoor fridge, fully equipped kitchen, DVD collection, PS3 with games and controllers, pool towels, gazebo.....the list goes on and on.

The villa is about a 35 minute drive from Malaga airport and the local area has plenty of shops and restaurants. The restaurant at the end of the road is great family fun at the weekend and everyday (apart from Tuesday, when it's closed) the food is good quality pub style food at reasonable prices. The villa is ideal to relax in all day but when we did venture out the coast is easy to drive to on main roads. Also, Mijas and the lakes are worth a visit, although the drive in winding roads is more challenging.

We had a wonderful holiday in Casa de Marbilla and feel lucky to have found it.

I have recently returned home following an amazing week at this villa, it has everything you could think of plus much more.The villa is surrounded by the breath taking scenery of the sierra mountains which is popular with cyclists and hikers.
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the villa making use of the facilities such as relaxing by the pool and drinking sangria at our very own bar whilst watching the amazing sunset.
Surrounding towns such as Mijas, Marbella and Benalmadena are a stone throw away......perfect
The garden and villa has been sculptured to a very high standard and attention to detail, i would not hesitate to return.
Mary the owner greeted us at the gates, she gave us a short tour of the villa, yet very professional and was very helpful in any questions we had about the surrounding area.....first class

“What more do you want???????”
Reviewed July 19, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just returned from spending 2 amazing weeks with my family along with our friends from Lurgan, Ireland. This house and garden has everything you could wish for to spend a relaxing stay in a beautiful country. Mary was there to greet us on arrival and you could tell she was very proud of her home and no wonder. The decor, the garden, the pool, the design, the barbecue area, the air con, the bedrooms, the music systems, the pool table with flat screen TV outside, the English plug points (tons of them), the towels, the fridges, the outside furniture..................................... you get the picture :-) Oh and the Wifi........

This house gets a 10/10 from me and being honest the photo's make the place look great but it is even better in real life.

A 5 min walk down the hill to the main road you have a lovely restaurant that does some great local cuisine and Pepe the chef is a hoot.

You have many supermarkets within a 5 min drive, Marbella, Benalmadena, Malaga are all easily reached in 30 mins.

Between the 2 families we had 5 kids and they were happiest in the pool which is the focal point of the villa. I have rented in Florida before and this pool is 4X the size of the American version (there's a 1st :-)

All in I couldn't give you any negatives and if your lying by the pool with a cold beer have a look to the sky and you won't wait long till you see an eagle fly past.

If this Villa is available in the future I will return 100%.

During our 2 weeks we visited by car, Ronda, Puerto Banus, Seville, Tivoli World in Benalmadena and the rest of the time was spent at the pool. Bliss

Thank you to Bill and Mary for letting us rent their beautiful home.

“Amazing Villa!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

My family and I have just returned from a wonderful 2 week holiday staying in this wonderful villa. We received a very warm welcome by Mary, the owner. The villa is beautiful inside and out and caters perfectly for a family regardless of ages. The villa is on ground level and the double back doors lead to the most wonderful outdoor space, the garden is well laid out with patio with shaded area, plenty of outside dining and relaxation, there is a good sized swimming pool with shallow and deep end, pool towels were provided, there was the most amazing bbq with sink and fridge! the outside pool table was popular with the adults and children (it even had a wall mounted TV!). There is also ample outside lighting for the evening time, the garden has the sun practically all day! the layout of the inside of the house has been well thoughtout also and tastefully decorated, internet wifi, selection of DVDs, CDs and books and children's games. The utilities were excellent also with dishwasher, washing machine and aircon throughout the house. We enjoyed our holiday so much we have asked for the villa again next year! We hired a car which I would recommend, there is a nice place to eat less than a 5min walk away and there is a good variety of supermarkets and shops within a 5min drive into Coin.
