“Fantastic Home Away From Home”

person found this review helpful

Villa Fenix and its owners can only be recommended in the highest in our opinion. We were three families with a total of eight small children that passed two wonderful weeks there recently. The villa itself was immaculate and very well furnished with more than ample space. It is safe and secure and in a pleasant and quite neighborhood that is advantageously situated half way between the town center and the beech. All house facilities one could possibly require during one's stay were to be found at the Villa. The facilities and utensils were clean and tidy and in sufficient numbers for a large group of people. The pool was clean and of a good size surrounded by a large and private garden with a fantastic grill and dining area where we enjoyed our meals everyday. Even though we were a relatively large group we at no time felt cramped or on top of each other during our stay.
The communication with the owners was excellent and they were always very happy to assist while being very careful to ensure that we did not feel that they were encroaching on our space. In fact they felt more like old friends to us than strangers that we had rented from. They insisted on driving us to the supermarket on our first day and showing us around as well as treating us to a fabulous home cooked meal one evening. All in all it was an absolute pleasure to have met and spend some time with them.
It is only a ten minute walk from the Villa to the beech and equally a ten minute walk to the town center in the opposite direction to the beech. The beech itself is clean and peaceful with a very long promenade dotted with a number of kiosks and restaurants. It is ideal for small children especially considering the short walk from the Villa. The town is a perfect size, authentic, relatively quite and has all the amenities that one might require. There are plenty of banks, restaurants, shops, bars, pharmacies etc and it is well suited to families or people who like their peace and quite. For those with a more lively disposition Puerto Banus is only a ten minute taxi ride from the villa or a 50 minute walk along the promenade (which is to be recommended).
In addition the Villa is also well placed for touring. Ronda, Gibraltar and Malaga are all only an hour away by car and in addition amenities such as kayaking, scuba diving and other water sports are to found in the general area.
To conclude, we cannot fault the villa. It was clean, well equipped, and very well located. The owners were fantastic, trustworthy and very kind to us. The town and beech were peaceful and ideal for families with small children and the locals very helpful. We spent a thoroughly enjoyable and unforgettable time at Villa Fenix.

“Perfect villa”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

15 of us stayed at Villa Fenix for a long weekend and we could not fault it in any way. It is located 5 mins in a cab from Puerto Banus in a very well kept residential community and had everything we needed to make the weekend perfect. We had fantastic communication and service from the owners and would highly recommend it for anyone wanting private accommodation in the area.

“PERFECT... Couldn't wish for better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Gutted to be home....
Villa Fenix is a beautiful Villa. We went as a group of 14 for my hen do and we had the best time.
Communication with the owners was excellent. They couldn't be more helpful... Helped us by booking taxis and driving us to the supermarket to get food.
The villa is large, clean and the pool is gorgeous. I can't find fault with anything. Facilities were excellent and the beds extremely comfortable!
Perfect location....right near restaurants and the beach. We got a taxi to puerto banus which was €10 but you really don't need to leave the villa if you don't want to.
Would recommend 100%.
Thank you x

“Everything you could ask for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We are 3 sisters, 1 husband,1 daughter and son in law,5 teenage cousins and a baby ! The accomodation was just perfect. The lay out was ideal for us as a family group with enough space to enjoy a stress free holiday. The owners were extremely helpful and even gave us the use of their kayak .
The pool was great for the teenagers and the baby and it was so comfortable in the garden that we were all very happy to just laze about. We barbecued almost every evening and made the post of sitting around the garden dining table until we were all falling asleep ....or nodding off after the wine! Our host also delighted us by preparing a huge paella for us which was fantastic.
We would all happily return to Villa Fenix and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it for your holiday - it was perfect.

“Excellent location, fabulous outside space, lovely owners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

After looking for a long time for a villa for a reasonably sophisticated hen weekend, we choose villa fenix. Don't be put off by the fact we choose it for a hen do, it was quiet, immaculate and fully equity to spend a whole weekend cooking, eating al fresco and relaxing by the pool. We had an excellent stay and the owners could not have done more. We were a little loud one evening but just took the party inside. 3 min walk to the beach and some excellent beach restaurants, banus is a 10 minute taxi ride and there's not a lout in site. We will be booking again!
