About this location
The Andalucia region
The Costa del Sol, in southern Spain, is top of most holidaymaker's wish lists!
The 320 days a year of sunshine are virtually taken for granted, it's the multitude of fantastic features, both natural and manmade, which ensure that, no matter what your age, or interests, every day you spend on this beautiful coast will be most rewarding.
Fringing the glorious Mediterranean sea, the golden beaches provide lazy days of sunbathing. If you enjoy sport then you are within a few miles of numerous championship quality golf courses. In the winter, skiing is only 2 hours drive away in the beautiful Sierra Nevada mountains. As the evening approaches, choose your evening venue: the coast has an unmatchable range of international restaurants.
If you still have the energy, take a stroll around Puerto Banus, the home of magnificent yachts, cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Don't forget to visit Benalmadena Harbour, recently voted one of the most beautiful harbours in the world.
The Costa del Sol is in the region of Andalucia. A drive away from your Heritage Resort will take you through stunning countryside to the world famous cities of Granada, Cordoba, Ronda, Seville and nearby Malaga.
You should not miss a visit to the British enclave of Gibraltar with its duty free shopping or even a visit to the Moroccan town of Tangier on the North African coast. The good news is how accessible this fabulous coastline is. Low cost flights from Europe arrive daily at Malaga airport.
Elviria has some of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol with miles of white sand and beautiful clear blue sea, beach bars, restaurants and water sports, and is home to the famous 'Nikki Beach' and 5 STAR Don Carlos Beach club.
Most of these places have lounge chairs and cabanas that can be hired. You can also set up your own. There are water sports facilities provided by licensed operators. The beach is within 10 minutes walking distance.
For the evening a lot of local and international restaurants offer their service nearby, some of them just a 10 minute walk away.

Stayed at Serenity for 9 nights at the end of August this year, we were a family of 5 adults and 3 children aged 4 to 9 years. The villa itself is superb, the kitchen is well equipped (the owner even leaves a cupboard stocked with herbs and spices ideal for use on the BBQ) and all the bedrooms are spacious and nicely furnished with air con and ceiling fans. The villa is actually the owners home and is therefore really well appointed, for the kids there was a table tennis table and swings in the garden, table football, air hockey and pool table plus a Wii with games. The TV gives access to UK channels although we didn't really use it and there is a Bose sound system.
There is a small pool in the garden ideal for cooling off but just a 3 minute walk around the corner there is a large community pool which was never busy and was a little warmer. There are also Padel tennis courts and a playground by this pool.
There are 2 good supermarkets at the end of the road, 1minutes walk away and a few restaurants at a small complex about 15 minutes walk away. The Commercial Centre with about another 8 restaurants is about half an hour walk away (20 mins at brisk walking pace) or €7 in a taxi. The beach is also about 30 mins walk and has a couple of restaurants.
Marbella is only 7km away and is easy to get to on the bus and cost about €15 in a taxi one way. Malaga airport was about 35 minutes away.
The villa is situated in a residential area so don't expect lovely sea or countryside views, it can be a little noisy with kids from the apartments to the rear being quite noisy until late at night and also a couple of noisy dogs 3 doors down the street. I am only mentioning this to give a balanced view, it certainly wasn't enough noise to spoil our holidays but others may be more sensitive to it. All in all this was probably the best appointed villa we have ever stayed in and we would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone travelling with extended family and young kids.
The owners were friendly and available if you needed them (which we didn't) and gave a thorough tour of the villa and it's amenities when we arrived.
Thank you Alexandra and Friedrich.
Thanks for such a detailed review, which will help others get a nice picture. Due to the "siesta" which is custom in Spain to avoid the hottest hours of the day, the evenings are well appreciated by the adults and the kids. There are many kids on the appartements, mostly in August, but they normally go to bed at 12:oo (AM) as it is not permitted to stay loud in residential areas after that time (therefore they wake up very late, almost at 13:00 PM and go afterwards and almost all day to the beach).
Thanks for staying with us and your time writing this review.

Thanks for all your feedback. Last year we install solar plates with enough storage for all to shower. Glad that you notice something like this.
We have bought also a milk can for tea time (so you don't miss it next time).
We are glad that you felt our effort to make you feel at home, because this is really your home for some wonderful weeks in the summer.
Hope to see you soon again.

We will always wellcome you with open arms.

Thanks for sharing your experience and your impressions on Villa Serenity. As it is also our home, we loved that you felt the intimate and unique ambience of our loving home, finding a nice environment for everyone; either lying placidly in the sun enjoying the garden and pool, or playing ping pong, table hockey, pool or just relaxing in the rocking chairs or swings in the garden.
We are lucky to have everything near; playing grounds, the beach, restaurants, bus stop and supermarkets at walking distance.
Thanks again for your time and words.

Thanks a lot for such a detailed and wonderful review. There are some restaurants 500 meters from the house, which I unfortunately didn't mention, such as the Indian Restaurant Saffron and another Spanish one with good tapas named Wuaki, the rest are a short drive from the house or on the beach itself at 1000 meters.
It was nice having you with us.

Have a nice trip back home and hope to see you soon again.

"Herrliche und entspannte Ferien in einer super schönen Villa"
Im Oktober haben wir zwei Wochen in der Villa Serenity entspannte Ferien verbracht. Wir waren 3 Erwachsene, zwei Kinder und ein Kleinkind. Jeder hatte sein eigenes, schön eingerichtetes Zimmer mit En-Suite Bad.
Die zwei sehr sympathischen Besitzer (Alexandra und Friederich) haben uns persönlich begrüsst. Eine kurze unkomplizierte Führung durchs Haus folgte und wir wurden mit einer Flasche Wein beschenkt und in zwei herrliche Wochen geschickt.
Das Haus war bei unserer Ankunft sehr sauber, ausgestattet mit allem was man sich wünscht. Sogar Shampoo und Seife standen in allen Badezimmern parat. Für das Entertainment der Kinder ist gesorgt und dies für alle Altersklassen: Spielzeug, Brettspiele, Pooltisch, Schaukel, etc. etc. Der TV wurde nur einmal angeschaltet!
Es sind auch Beachtücher vorhanden und davon reichlich, was sehr praktisch ist.
Erst war uns der Kunstrasen etwas suspekt, doch schon nach einem Tag haben wir die Vorteile schätzen gelernt. Sogar unser Yogaprogramm haben wir im schönen Garten auf dem weichen, trockenen Rasen, ganz ohne Matte absolviert!
Die grosse Küche ist ausgestattet mit allem was man sich wünscht. Genug Pfannen, Geschirr, einer Geschirrspülmaschine etc., etc. Sogar reichlich Gewürze stehen zur Verfügung.
Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt's gleich ums Eck. Die saubere Beach ist mit dem Auto in 3 Minuten erreichbar und das Auto kann man problemlos abstellen.
Bei Fragen, Tipps oder Problemen stehen die Besitzer jederzeit innerhalb kurzer Zeit zur Verfügung.
Allen in allem waren wir sehr zufrieden und haben herrliche Ferien verbracht. Gerne wieder!

"A wonderful Place to enjoy, relax, and have a good time with the whole family!"
We have returned from a 10 day break at villa Serenity,fantastic villa ,spacious(there was 10 of us) clean and very well equipped.The garden had a lovely ' tropical' feel to it and the children loved the swings,space and pool.The children also loved the tv room which was perfect for them when it got too hot outside,adults therefore could sit by the pool or under the shade and enjoy the surroundings.
We found the overall location of the villa perfect,walking distance to a lovely beach,supermarkets and restaurants.The Beach House restaurant was great.The villa is a short drive to Marbella ,Waterparks ,Amaziona Adventure and many other great places.
We enjoyed our holiday at villa serenity very much and would look at returning for another holiday in the future.
Thank you Alexandra and Fredrich for letting us use your beautiful villa.
Thanks for this wonderfull review and we hope to see you soon!!!
