Puerto Banus is the playground of the rich and famous. Located on Spain's Costa del Sol just west of Marbella.The Costa Del Sol/Andalucia runs from Malaga down to the southern most tip of Europe and the historic "rock".It enjoys over 300 days of sun a year and has 60 beaches, stunning mountains,glitzy Puerto Banus,expensive Marbella and traditional mountain villages.Mild temperatures join forces with the magic of Andalusia’s towns and villages, its charming harbours along with splendid countryside and the convergence of sea and breezes. These are the basic ingredients for a destination not to be missed

Sheltered and protected by the peaks of the Sierra Blanca mountain range, the winter weather and climate in Marbella/Puerto Banus is generally extremely mild, with only light clothing necessary during most winter days. Not only are Marbella's winter months quite warm but they are also fairly dry, featuring infrequent rainy weather and few overcast days.With long hot summers stretching from late March though to mid November and with Winter temperatures averaging 20 and seldom dropping below 18C it is the perfect place to enjoy long family holidays or short weekend breaks.

Whether it be barbecues in the garden,late balmy evenings sitting on the terrace enjoying a glass of Rioja,quiet strolls through quaint traditional mountain villages,designer shopping in the Port or local street markets, eating at some of the best restaurants in Spain or simply lying on one of the sun drenched beaches or by the pool, enjoying a game of golf at one of the 4 local championship golf courses, tennis or water sports the exclusive Puerto Banus El Paraiso area has it all.

Thanks to its unbeatable climate and warm year-round temperatures, the Costa del Sol is a great option to escape from the cold.On winter mornings you can choose to enjoy an outing to the heart of the countryside, play a round of golf or go shopping at one of the typical local street markets. At lunchtime, why not get your strength back with a delicious snack on the lively, sunny promenade? In the afternoon you could continue with a cultural visit and, to finish off the day, what better than the excellent night life at one of the marinas? Because on the Costa del Sol, life is just as intense in winter as it is in summertime.

Let yourself be captivated by Andalusia’s coast, where you will find a succession of unspoilt beaches and a veritable paradise for your holidays. With pleasant temperatures no matter what the season, Andalusia's outstanding beaches are a gift to any traveller.The coast of Andalusia offers you the chance to lose yourself in contemplation of its deep red sunsets and its waters, caressed by the easterly wind

Places to Visit:

Casares

is a beautiful little village, a taste of "real" Spain. Head towards Estepona and follow the signs. About 30 minutes by car, through the country. Park at the top of the hill before you drive into the village. Walk down through the narrow streets and then up to the very top of the hill where the castle ruins and cemetery are and watch the vultures, kestrels and eagles. Stop at the bar on the way down and savour the panoramic views over a beer.

Benahavis

– another small Spanish town - more commercialised than Casares, but a great place to go for dinner (see restaurants).

Ronda

– Famous Spanish town stunning gorge. About 1 hours drive. Worth a visit . There's a bull ring, old town and good shopping.

Gibraltar

– For adults and children a visit to Gibraltar for shopping or to visit the historic battlements is a must.Gibraltar also has an M&S and Morrisons stores Gib is a 40 minutes drive. Take your passports! pay in pounds very cheap alcohol,cigs,electrical goods.tax free..Do not miss the dolphin watching boat trips,go up the rock on the cable car and see the original battlements and the famous but not too pleasant monkeys.Have lunch in the famous Rock hotel terrace or visit the Southern most tip of Europe and look at Africa a mile away and the dozens of boats going through the straits or if you really want to be adventurous you can take the fast ferry 45 mins to Tangiers were you can get some excellent bargains in pottery,basket ware,clothes not to mention fake designer wear

Marbella

- sophisticated and fabulous shops! You MUST go to Orange Square one evening – either for dinner or for drinks. If you are driving to Marbella from the Villa , you park on the right hand side (ie the coastal side - there are a few public car parks ) and Orange Square is up in the centre of the old town, left of the main road .

The Port of Estepona

- The marina and port are a must as is the old town. A much smaller and more intimate version of Puerto Banus!

Granada/Seville

Both are approx. 3 hours from the villa.In Winter we have sun bathed in the morning at the coast and 2.5 hours later skied and enjoyed amazing snow.The drive is stunning and you can stop for lunch in the numerous ski lodges and simply walk in the snow the views are to die for.A must is the Alhambra palace in Granada itself.Seville is 3 hours in the other direction by motorway it can be very hot in Summer but perfect in Winter its big so pick the area you want to visit,park and walk- has to be one of the most beautiful cities in Europe

"Luxury in Marbella!"

Just returned from a short trip with 7 friends to this amazing house. Pretty much faultless, and everything you need for a relaxing and pampered stay. It feels like a house, not an impersonal rental property.
And the Ramos restaurant 5 mins walk away was the best meal we've had in a long time.
Thanks to Victoria and Allan for their excellent communication and all the useful information in the property.
Just go - you won't regret it. Can't recommend highly enough!

"Everything you could ask for to be able to relax and enjoy your break."

This is a fabulous property that is well maintained and situated in a tranquil relaxing surroundings. The views from the roof are breathtaking and it is is in easy reach of the most necessary amenities and must see places. The owner appears to be a very honest, understanding and extremely helpful lady and she even took the time to supply me with east to understand directions to the venue. I would sincerely recommend this property to any respectable family.

"Great Villa, lovely pool, great location and lovely people"

We have just returned from a week at the villa having found it on holiday lettings website. Vicky the owner was very helpful, and there were little touches that made the holiday easy like a cool bag at the villa and beach towels for use, Paul the guy who let us in was also very helpful.
The living space was more than ample and clean, all the bedrooms were a good size and the bathrooms were lovely. The pool was nice although we did tend to go to a local beach in Estapona because it was easier to relax with toddlers. There was a local supermarket called the Mercadona a short drive away and several local restaurants, you have to visit the fish and chip restaurant Peggottys, the food is lush!
I would recommend car hire, there are plenty of places to visit and the house is up a large hill, so a bit of a walk in the heat. Also the car was useful for shopping.
My only fault with the house was the fact it was on three stories, this wouldn't be an issue for most guests but was awkward for us as we had to sleep a 3 year old on the top floor, this did concern me a little as the stairs are all tiled, I did worry she may fall but there were no problems. The villa did have a stair gate on the floor below.
Great holiday, lovely place, we would love to go back to that part of Spain and that villa!

"What a fabulous holiday"

3 Couples and our 21 month grandaughter stayed for a week in this beautiful villa.
It was very well described and Viccy (the owner) was extremely helpful with all of our enquiries
We decided not to hire a car and really enjoyed the walk down and up the long hill and felt assured it would burn off all the calories after enjoying such an excellent variety of good quality food available.
'Ramos' was excellent and only a 5min walk from the villa
Tha villa itself was beautifully furnished and superbly equipped with everything needed

Thank you for an amazing holiday with our family

"Beautiful Villa"

We stayed in this villa for two weeks in Sept and it was perfect for our needs. We were 3 adult couples and a two year old. We were provided with a high chair and a cot. The villa was clean, spacious and well laid out. There is a store cupboard in the kitchen full of essentials, herbs, oil, vinegar, marmite etc. There is a restaurant a few streets away and there are countless bars and restaurants just down the hill. You can see the sea from the balcony and the mountains are the other side. The pool was cleaned every day and was located just at the bottom of the garden. The man who delivered the keys was very helpful and the owner has been great with communication throughout. Fab holiday, we would definitely recommend this villa.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Casa Paraiso and felt the need to write a review. This place exceeded our expectaions and the pictures dont do it justice. The complex is beautiful. We usual… More

I would like to thank the guest for their kind comments.It is very rewarding when someone enjoys the house,gardens and pool as much as we do.We have quite a few repeat guests and very much want our guests to feel our home is their holiday home as well.

"A beautiful summer home ... but be aware of a serious lack of securiy"

We booked Casa Paraiso for 7 weeks last winter. The owner Victoria arranged us a deal for the winter period as we were only a couple with a 2 year old girl and we booked late, less than 3 weeks before arrival. Most properties were already booked over Christmas time and New year so we were happy to find it! The house is really LUXURY, very spacious, lovingly decorated and description is accurate. Paul, the representative, was more than helpful and still now we thank him for being so kind and helpful! Weather was very humid and the house was cold. It is fitted with marble floor so need the heater on day long. Electricity was limited and during winter, you need to be careful of this extra cost.
The residence itself is beautiful, with well maintened garden, even during low season. So a prefect setting for a wonderful stay! ...However we, as 5 other villas in the residence, have been visited during the Silvester night and we were rubbered most important effects. Most of the villas have fences and/or window protection but not a Casa Paraiso where we stayed. Access from the garden is very easy...Security in the residence was at that particular evening completly absent-We have been looking for 4 hours for the guardian who diseappered. Only Paul, the representative showed up 10 min after we called him, in the middle of the night. Police only arrived 5 hours later thanks a Spanish owner who called them hundred times. It was a very scary experience with our 2 year Old girl. The owner did not recognized the lack of security despite the fact that the residence was already visited and some houses was rubbered for 2nd time in 6 months! Casa Paraiso is advertised with a security guardian from 08.00-08.00!! We wanted to leave the next day after the incident as the door was broken and could not be locked anylonger. We booked for 52 days and paid in advance. We got refund the days the owner managed to get reservation and we were even asked to pay the higher price over the Christmas period despite we made a deal when booking last minute- We run a property rental company in Croatia and we feel in such circumstances that a full refund of the nights non used should have been made as we left the property because of a lack of security. This is our own experience and may be a rare case, but still travellers should be informed of the lack of security in this residence Casa Paraiso and a lack of courtesy from the owner who kept thinking on her rental loss rather than of the well being of her guests. A part from that the Villa is beautiful, up a hill so a car is necessary, -- Puerto Banus is a 25 min drive- and Paul, the local agent from Pelican rentals a very friendly and helpful person. We would recommend Casa Paraiso only if the owner confirms that security measures have been reinforced since beginning of 2011.
Ps: We should add that on our drive down to Puerto Banus, we were car-hacked and stolen already valuable effects and we were under a schock. So we were happy to settle in a quiet neighbourhood and house. We bought new items as laptops that we needed for our buisness and were stolen again at the villa. So our experience was unlucky and for this reason the owner refused to refund as she considered we wanted to go home -- After those experience, we think no one would have stayed with a 2 yearl Old girl in a unsafe place with open doors.... So now you know all story!

I am pleased the guest rated our house as good overall and “luxurious“. The house has and had during the guests visit, an infrared motion sensor security system in all rooms which is linked directly to a security company who inform the local police station, my local guest representative and myself if the alarm goes off. Unfortunately this was not turned on on the night in question. Since this incident we now specifically highlight and explain the security system to all guests on arrival and suggest they use it. The small development the house is on is in a quiet,residential area and the site is gated and fenced with an intercom controlled entrance system from the house linked to the TV, so you can see who is at the gate before you open it and there is also a security man present from 8pm to 8am every night. Not being there I cannot answer as to where the security man was on the night in question but I know the local manager I pay to look after the house and my guests, was present throughout and offered to have the broken lock fixed immediately after the police inspection.I am sorry it took the police so long to attend the scene but anyone who has experienced a burglary in the UK will know this is common everywhere.I am relieved the guest found my local rep helpful and courteous. My husband and I talked several times at length to the guest on the phone from the UK and could fully appreciate how distraught she was with the breakin coming so quickly after her earlier robbery when travelling through Spain.My husband immediately made arrangements to fly down to check the security and assist with the police report.However the guest had already left when he arrived. I should say that no damage other than a patio door lock, was done to the house and no items TVs, DVDs, SKY box, Sound system, ipod speakers etc of which there are several in the house, were moved or stolen and we have had only this one break in in the 4/5 years since the house was built.

The guest was offered the high season weeks of Christmas and New Year at a heavily discounted rate on the basis that her booking was for an extended period through the low season of January and was subsequently refunded the equivalent of 4 weeks low season discounted rental. I am very sorry she does not feel the level of refund was adaquate but taking into consideration that her family did have use of the house from the 20th December, over Christmas, through to the first week of the New Year I could not, as clearly wanted, refund the total rental. I am also sorry that she was disappointed with the weather but like anywhere in Europe, Winter weather can be cold and wet at times but then again you can have some clear, sunny, wonderfully warm days.....The house is modern, and spacious with marble floors throughout with individually controlled central heating/aircon system in every room, duvets on all beds in Winter plus wel can supply extra radiators if required. Regarding electricity – as the rental was low and for an extended period, it was clearly indicated in the booking contract that the cost of electricity was covered in the rental charge up to a specified weekly average with any excess usage to be covered by her during her stay.

Like everywhere in the world, crime is an issue in Spain and the guest's earlier robbery experience before she arrived at our house must have been extremely upsetting as even prior to the break in she had indicated that she may need to leave early. Casa Paraiso is our family holiday home and it is very important to me personnally that everyone who stays, enjoys the house and I, my husband and our local representative do try to do everything we can to make our visitors stay an enjoyable experience. However clearly on this occasion we failed and for this I can only apologise to the guest and her family.

"Excellent villa - as good as it looks on the photos"

Have just returned from staying for 10 days in the villa. It has a real home from home feel about it. Very comfortable with everything you could possibly need and more. All the facilities were excellent, from the travel cot and high chair to the ensuite bathrooms. The outside terrace with awnings were well used with the comfy sofas and table, we satyed outside until midnight most nights.
Restaurants and bars are a good walk down the hill but perfect for building up a thirst! There is a good choice of restaurants depending on what you fancy. We explored the area went to Puerto Banus, Gibraltar, the aquapark near Torremelinos was excellent .I would recommend the villa to anyone and will certainly book again when we visit the area.
