“Beautiful picturesque, tranquil hilltop location overlooking the ocean”
Reviewed September 8, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed at Villa Tranqulia for a week with a group of friends in May. The villa itself was stunning, spacious, very clean, with a good sized pool and spectacular views over the ocean. It was situated inside a gated community giving us the best of both worlds, offering privacy but only being a short drive to local shops, bars and restaurants. The garden is very well kept with your very own lemon tree, which we used to our full advantage and made ourself natural lemonade in the sun. The spacious garden is also a sun trap during the day to top up the tan, good for days were you might not want to venture out. The nearby town is about a 30 min walk through the hills, which we did on more than one occasion taking in the vast views of Morocco & Gibraltar in the distance. Theres is much to do in near by Marbella aswell. Comes highly recommended for a great value getaway.

“Great home for large group, breathtaking views, and awesome outdoor areas”
Reviewed July 9, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I contacted Michael about our planned trip to Costa Del Sol, and he was extremely responsive, helpful, and made the booking process very simple! I was somewhat cautious because of my experience with fraudulent/scam advertisements in the area while I was attempting to find a place for our group of 12. Michael put me at ease right away by providing me with his direct contact information and his high level of professionalism. The home is amazing...my wife was extremely satisfied with the home's layout which provided sufficient space and privacy for everyone. She also enjoyed the kitchen appliances, to include the stove/oven and the coffee maker which were very high quality. The backyard garden is beautifully landscaped and manicured. The pool is perfect size, and the views of the mountains and Mediterranean are breathtaking. There are beautiful flowers, a banana tree, and a lemon tree which we used to make cocktails and sangria throughout the week. For me, the media system (specifically the SANOS system) throughout the home was a huge bonus...as we love music and we could play music through our phones by the pool, on the terrace, and throughout the house. The home is secluded for ample privacy, but within a 20 minute drive to most things. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thank you so much Michael for allowing us to share your beautiful home.
Cheers,
Nathan

“Bliss”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Pictures do not do this place any justice. The villa is on the edge of the cliff and the views are breath-taking, the villa has everything you would expect and more. We were staying here with a small group of girls and the space allowed us to take things at own pace for everybody as well as get together and mooch comfortably so nobody really wanted to leave the villa and go out. Eventually we did venture out to Benahavis which is a charming traditional Spanish village. We picked a place from owners recommended list - It was a nice chilled vibe & food was exceptional + great value. Food We are already planning to come back next year!

“Stunning Villa, can't wait to go back”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The pictures just don't do this place justice. The location is tucked away in the hills and so quiet & peaceful, perfect for a relaxing break.

The facilities are top class too, we wanted for nothing and didn't even get around to using some of it while we stayed!

We are planning to go back next year!

“Heaven from start to finish”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

The first thing to say is that the photos really don't do the villa justice, its so beautifully designed and decorated and is truly a wow moment when you drive through the gates. It is literally on top of the mountain on an exclusive gated community where you hardly see another villas amongst the trees. Michael, the owner was so helpful to ensure we had a great weekend and organised all the security so we could get in. You do need a car to get there and it is a little drive from Malaga airport, (id estimate 1 hour), its up a steep and winding road from Marbella.

The house itself is so peaceful and tranquil (the name is perfect), we even saw wild hogs crossing the road at one point! as an amateur and wanna be chef I was so impressed with the equipment and facilities in the house itself (all Neff) we only ended up venturing out for one meal over the 4 days.

The house has an am zing view and a sophisticated sound system and outside and inside eating areas/lounging areas and around the pool so you really didn't feel on top of each other because of the space. The housekeeper they employee Javier explained how to use everything when one of our party arrived. Which was handy as both the sound system and the hob need a bit of explaining, the hob in particular! (who knew the magnetic circle was actually the button to turn it on!) we spent a while thinking it was a fridge magnet! (you'll understand when you get there).

The house was so amazing, the birthday girl we were with said it was her best weekend away ever and we are looking to return annually now as a ladies weekend treat!

I cant recommend highly enough, just book it!

“Amazing”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Vila Tranquila is situated in the hills above Marbella. We stayed several times. The name is spot on - only bird song and silence to be heard. Favourite place is outside overlooking the lush valley and the sea beyond, but the view can be enjoyed also from other parts of the villa. The open plan kitchen/dining area/living room is social and comfortable. The sleeping arrangements are very private. So is the pool area and garden, all secluded from neighbours. Ideal for honeymooners, groups of friends, families with kids. The villa has a great atmosphere. Will give it 10 out of 10 points and will surely be back!
