“fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The title says it all, a truly lovley place to stay. We spent last week at Villa Fenix with a group of friends, this villa has everything you need for your stay, it is very well equipped with everything you will need, the location is great for bars and restaurants and shopping. The beach front is flat and tree lined which makes for easy walking. The owners Miguel and Toni were lovley people, always on hand if you needed help with anything. A very enjoyable stay we hope to repeat one day. Thankyou Miquel, Toni, and Sergio

Reviewed May 18, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We were at Villa Fenix with 12 friends last week, it was perfect everything you would ever need for a wonderful self catering holiday there was nothing to want for. The outside areas and pool were cleaned every day by Miguel and Toni did everything to make sure that you were comfortable and happy, Sergio spoke excellent English and was helpful.

Beach and 10 mins to the town a perfect location plenty of bars and restaurants with in easy walking distance, if you are looking for a self catering holiday in a lovely Villa and wonderful surroundings Villa Fenix is the place , one day we will be returning for sure. Thank You Toni, Miguel and Sergio from Pauline Kate and the Gang.

“Fantastic mini break away”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Have just returned from a 4 day trip to celebrate my hen do and can't say enough positive things about villa fenix. I had excellent correspondence with the owners prior to the visit, we were warmly welcomed with a tour of the villa and felt right at home almost immediately. The villa was in a safe and secure neighbourhood with easy access to shops, restaurants and supermarkets. The villa itself was spacious, clean, well presented and was well equipped with all the amenities you could possibly need. As most of our party were restricted to hand luggage only, it was particularly useful to have facilitates such as hair dryers, towels etc. The garden area was well designed with a good sized pool and comfortable seating. The owners were very helpful and accommodating but gave us the space to enjoy our holiday. Would reccommend 100%, a fantastic place in a beautiful location.

“Fantastic Home Away From Home”
Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

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”
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”
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”
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.
