“We had a lovely holiday at this luxury apartment in Playas del Duque. The location was perfect, as we were only 5 minutes walk from all of the amenities in Puerto Banus, and even closer to the beach, which would be easily accessed through the garden gate. The apartment was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, including two en-suite bathrooms and WiFi (both of which are of real benefit to a family with teenagers!). The gardens are beautiful, with plenty of sunny and shaded areas to sit, and very tranquil after the heat of the beach or walking around the marina. Angela popped round to see us while we were there, and it was lovely to know that she takes such an interest in her guests. We would recommend hiring bikes on the beach and cycling along the coast towards Marbella - a lovely experience. Thanks for hosting us Angela & Niall!”

High quality beachside apartment

As with all their properties the apartment did not disapoint us. Always maintained to a very high standard the slightest of problems are dealt with promptly. Viewing from the balconies the immaculately maintained gardens are a joy .An easy few minutes walk into the port offers many good restaurants overlooking luxery yachts . We plan to return soon and recommend this property unreservedly.

Charming and the sweetest spot on the Thames!

We stayed at Pixie Place in April and I purposefully waited to write a review to see if my 1st impression and perspective had been viewed through rose coloured glasses while I was there. But nothing has changed my opinion - I still adore this place and tried to reserve it again for July but sadly disappointed as it is fully booked up until mid August. Here are just a few pointers in my opinion, which may help other travellers when looking for a quality holiday home to rent. The location could not be better nor is there a sweeter spot on the river Thames! Very quiet, very safe and absolutely beautiful. The house itself is to a luxurious standard of furniture, comfortable beds, clean and fantastically equipped kitchen, a riverside garden that belongs only to you. It was so soothing to spend some time every day in the Conservatory. The owners promptly answered all our queries. Our deposit was returned to us on the actual day we left (never experienced that in my life before!) A wonderful experience. ....Highly recommended.

Lovely apartment, fabulous location.

On arrival at the apartment we were delighted to find it was cool, spacious and very well equipped. In a block which is situated at the far end of the complex, the location was very peaceful. There was a superb view from the balcony, looking straight down the gardens to the sea. A most enjoyable holiday.

Superb Accommodation in Windsor

Pixie Place is perfect for couples with babies wanting to explore Windsor & the surrounding areas including London but who don't want the inconvenience, noise, congestion, lack of parking & general disturbances of being located right in the town centre. Pixie Place offers the best of both worlds...a peaceful & pretty countryside private & secure location but only a few minutes' drive into the hustle & bustle of Windsor town centre. This house is fantastic... it's on the river Thames with fabulous views, its clean, comfortable & well furnished & decorated. It is quiet with a large private walled garden & outdoor seating area on raised decking, secure parking, gardens to walk around BUT only a couple of minutes drive into Windsor town centre. It was also very easy to travel into London by either bus or train (we did both). There is also a the Royal Windsor farm shop nearby selling all sorts of local produce. We managed to take long a and lovely walks with our babies in their pushchairs...we walked from Pixie Place into Windsor Town centre, along the Mile Walk towards the Castle, to the Farm shop on the outskirts of the castle grounds and to the country pub off the tow path. For families with babies, the cot was high quality and the chair looked great quality too but didn't use it as our little ones are too young. The owners were really welcoming, the information pack was also really useful giving opening times, directions, prices etc for loads of local things like local restaurants, local shops, Windsor Castle, River Thames Boat Rides, Windsor Open top bus tours, horse & carriage rides through Windsor Great Park, and the Theatre Royal in Windsor. Just one of the small but really thoughtful things that really made a big difference. This was the first time we have reserved a holiday through a website and did so with some trepidation but there was no need for us to be concerned, even our deposit against damages was offered back to us within an hour of us leaving! Perfect place to stay in Windsor whether you're single, a couple or a family with children. Highly recommended and we cant wait to go back.

Simply stunning

One of the best apartments I have ever stayed in. Immacutely clean and with plenty of space for a family of four to spread out. Beautiful views of the garden and what a stunning garden it is. Three large pools and two friendly restaurants to choose from, paradise for the children. An excellent location for those travelling without a car - plenty of reliable buses to Marbella and San Pedro just a short walk away. Communication with Angela and Niall was effective and pleasant from start to finish. They have a superb apartment and we feel very lucky that we had the opportunity to stay here.

Piece of Heaven!

The remote gate entry, security guard & the metal security garage door below made you feel very safe! Took the elevator up to our apt., opened the door and was amazed how beautiful & clean it was. The rooms were large with plenty of closet space and a nice, fully functional kitchen. We had 3 roomy balconies that allowed sun exposure during the entire day. Breath-taking views of the garden, Mediterranean, Gibraltar, Puerto Banus and the mountains abound. We thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay and it has easy access to the pool, beach and the city which actually makes renting a car unnecessary (unless you plan on traveling the countryside). When we return, I would not hesitate to book this again! property in a heartbeat!

"Superb accommodation"

We booked this house primarily for visiting London. It served our every purpose. It's smart, well equipped. The conservatory is a delight, allowing views of the river. We sat out on the decking for a few nights. It was clean , well prepared. Set in a quiet location. Although close to the Heathrow approaches, this didn't bother us, and the double glazing ?(?triple) helped+++. The nearby lock is a 3/4 mile walk - very pleasant. The kids loved the house. It was well located for exploring London. Datchet train station is a five minute drive away with plenty of parking. We used Egham train station on a Sunday (quicker trains, but less parking). Our itinerary (for our 2 children aged 10 and 8) was Sun : HMS Belfast, Tower Bridge, Thames Speedboat (these booked to avoid the bank holiday rush), Mon - Hampton Court (a 35 min drive), Tues - Madame Tussauds, then Tower of London, Weds : Trafalgar Square and Buckinghams Palace, then West End show, Thurs : Chessington, Fri : Houses of Parliament (audio tour) and then London Eye. We have stayed in the Windsor area before for a week, doing Legoland, country parks, indoor skiing, cycling, swimming. So there is probably enough here for a fortnight. My wife enjoyed running down the Thames footpath, and I had a 10 mile mountain bike circuit , out via Crimp Hill then taking in Great Windsor Park and national cycle route 4 : perfect! Excellent communication from owner. Highly recommended accommodation.

"An ideal, high-spec staycation for a holiday"

I have rented various apartments over the last few years in Puerto Banus which belong to this owner and thought I would try their English property for 6 of us to meet up for a week's break and get together...we were not disappointed! . As some of us flew in from the North of the UK ( book in advance and it's cheaper to fly than drive), proximity to Heathrow was a plus. Location within Windsor Great Park was lovely and a plus while the Queen's 90th birthday celebrations were happening.
Where the whole house sits was interesting, well presented and well maintained. The house itself was well equipped and spotlessly clean. With 6 of us, there was plenty of space. We cooked meals with no problem at all, it all actually felt quite homely so was equally suitable for a more social gathering like ours. Bedrooms were lovely too. Also, we were blessed by some fantastic weather and the garden was a great place to sit and share a glass of wine while watching the river pass by as well as the swans and ducks! Windsor was in easy reach, and we managed to see the Changing of the Guard at the Castle, and took a carriage ride along the Long Walk. There's no doubt that it had been one of the very best staycations any of us have ever experienced, but it was due in no small part to the perfect suitability to our needs of Pixie Place and the fantastic service the owners successfully provide here and in Spain.

"Truely amazing"

We had the most amazing stay at this apartment. On the lead up to the holiday Angela & Nael were so helpful in any query we had. We couldn't believe how nice & how clean the apartment was it had everything. Two large bedrooms and two large bathrooms, kitchen large living room area with television with all the channels and outside area. The apartment complex itself has the most beautiful grounds with 3 swimming pools and it's so peaceful. It's also right on the beach and within 3 minutes walking distance to the ocean club depending on what you are looking for. In the evenings its' only about a 5 minute walk to the post which is quiet lively full of bars and restaurants. Its also a very secure apartment complex. We will most defiantly be back and I look forward to returning.

"Great time"
Let me firstly start with the less positive site – the weather was horrible!!! Almost 2 weeks rain and that in May!!! Luckily the apartment and Puerto Banus are on an excellent location and even with horrible weather we could enjoy our vacation and had good time there. Very nearby to the apartment there is a very nice SPA with an excellent gym, sauna, pool, etc... We spent quite a few days there. It is pretty expensive (40 Euro per adult per day!!) but we got an offer for 15 days which could be used by the whole family and was a great deal compared to other prices. Shops and restaurants are all in a walking distance. You do not need a car but if you decide to rent one, there is a car rental agency in the 2 underground floor of Corte Ingles which is 5 minutes walk from the apartment. We had really a great experience there. Cabs are also easy accessible and pretty affordable (approximately 10 Euros to get to Marbella). The apartment itself is very well equipped and surrounded with a beautiful park with a few pools and direct access from the park to the beach. Unfortunately we could use the park and the pools only 2-3 times but loved them a lot. You have complete privacy, peace and quiet although you are only a minute from the beach, parties and other happenings. There are also 2 small restaurants in the park which serve pretty good food and the staff is very friendly. Nael and Angela were really great in providing all necessary instructions/directions prior to the stay and all went very smoothly. Even during our stay they were so fast with responding to our inquiries. Although we never met in person, we felt there was someone there for us to support when needed. Thank you so much for that!!! The only minor comment for a potential improvement – it would be nice to get at least a welcoming bottle of water:-) A supermarket which works 24 hours 7 days is only 2-3 minutes away from the apartment but still, if you arrive in the evening and do not want to rush with shopping, it is always nice to be welcomed! Last couple of years we have been usually staying at such apartments/houses and always got welcomed with small goodies, differing from a bottle of water, coffee and tea to real baskets of everything you need for a breakfast or quick dinner with e.g. spaghetti and wine. It does not need to be a lot but small thinks make you feel being at home from a very first moment:-) Other than that really nothing to object and we can only recommend it further!

An Excellent location just a few minutes walk to all amenities, beach, marina, shops, bars and restaurants so a car is really not required.

We stayed here for the 2nd time, May 2016. Cannot fault the apartment, very spacious and a stunning location looking out to sea, the balcony is huge. It's just a 2/3 minute walk to the local supermarket and shops and a gentle stroll to the marina. The grounds of Andalucia del Mar are beautiful, there are 2 swimming pools and there is a gate at the bottom of the gardens leading out to a path to the beach. The gardens and apartment building are disabled friendly, our daughter has difficulty with steps but found no problem here. Every convenience has been thought of, love this place. Angela and Nael are very helpful and go out of their way to provide an excellent service. Can definitely recommend.

"STUNNING APARTMENT"

My mother and I stayed at the apartment for a week at the beginning of May. The apartment is absolutely stunning, very spacious, very clean, well decorated, great views, well appointed.... actually I cannot find any more superlatives to use. The only trouble is that the better the reviews the harder it will be to book it again!!!!! If there is one thing I would change, and it is a small thing, the beds are quite hard and some different variety of pillows (ie, soft, firm, etc) would be nice but that is being extremely picky on my behalf. Well done to the owners on your standards - not always easy to find.

"Relaxing and adventure when you want it"


The property is great. The apartment is well cared for and the property it resides in is in a great location. Easy walk to the beach or to go further to the harbor if you want more excitement. Marbella is an easy trip by boat or car if you want to venture out for a few hours. What we really enjoyed is the location because you can lay on the beach one day and drive to a great hill town, Gibralter or even go to Tangier for a day if you like. Every day was fantastic and it was great to go back to the apartment that was well accommodated to rest up for the next great day. Nael was great to work with. Made sure we had everything we needed before we arrived and made the whole transaction smooth. I'd highly recommend my friends to stay here and we hope to come back ourselves.

" Spacious, comfortable with every amenity and good location"

Immaculate home, with every extra. Owners were very helpful with directions and keys and suggestions of things to do. Pixie is a great house with plenty room to separate squabbling children and a safe garden in which they can play. There are three bedrooms plus a handy office. There are two full bathrooms upstairs plus a downstairs loo which made this a very workable house for the increasingly vain family members who find it tough to pass a mirror without checking themselves out. Ham Island may well be a sleepy location but it is also very convenient for Windsor. It was very relaxing being on the river and watching it flow by while sitting in the large sunroom. The living room is very large with an attractive large dining table. Kitchen is a good size too with another table, and if it lacks anything well I never noticed. Staying at Pixie made for a very easy break and I will definitely enquire about going back the next time I plan to visit the area. I should also mention the great carry out restaurant food there is in the neighbourhood- top score to "Punto's " an excellent Italian nearby that delivers food. Thanks for a great stay!

" Memorable holiday "

We had always wanted a Christmas/New Year break in the sun and found a luxury property to rent on the Spain-holiday website which met all our criteria at an affordable price. What impressed most from the outset was the professionalism and support offered by Nael and Angela Marar, the owners of Apartment 514, Andalucia del Mar. No question posed was too much for them and it was obvious they are honest and genuine people, easy to deal with. I was particularly pleasef that they were able to make last minute arrangements to accommodate our son who discovered less than a week before departure that he could join us for the family holiday. This saved him having to stay separately in a hotel. We arrived at 1am on Christmas morning and were able to collect the keys at a nearby location without any trouble. Apartment 514 was clean, spacious, secure well equipped and mostly quiet (there was occasional noise from above and the adjoining apartment as well as the refuse collectors and gardeners but not so much as to cause us problems). It benefits from three large terraces, two of which are south facing offering a sea view. This is a distinct advantage and encourages sun bathing and Alfreso dining. 514 is located 5 minutes walk from the beach and less than 10 minutes stroll from Puerto Banus where there are all the facilities including supermarket and pharmacy. The gardens and pool for the complex are beautifully kept and there is an excellent boardwalk along the beach front which was a favourite with our family. We hired a car for the first 9 days of our holiday and parking in the basement was easy and useful. One tip, if you need the use of a wireless printer for printing vouchers, boarding cards etc, the owners can provide one but we had not thought to ask them in advance. Internet usage is provided at extra cost but is reasonable and for us essential. They also have Internet TV offering latest films? We honestly could find no fault with 514 and would recommend it without hesitation. In fact we would certainly go back there. Thanks Angela and Nael for your part in making our holiday so relaxing and enjoyable.

The apartment is very conveniently located in attractive gardens that lead, through a secure gate, to the seaside boardwalk which can be used to walk to the Marina or the local shops (which include a well-stocked, medium-sized supermarket) and restaurants in just a few minutes. The apartment itself was spacious, clean, nicely furnished, fully equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Angela and Nael's organisation was smooth and fault free and it was especially nice that Angela popped round to see us on a couple of occasions to check that all was well. If you have a hire car the secure underground garage is a real bonus. I have stayed in a number of rental apartments and villas over the years and this apartment compares favourably with the best of them. Highly recommended. An additional bonus was the weather 21 - 25 degrees in late December cannot be bad!

We were told by friends that this is one of the most popular resorts to holiday in - for two main reasons: great location plus the lovely holiday ambiance within the resort. Other influential factors are safety (you need key to enter the resort and a security guard is here full time). We stayed at this apartment for a few days and found it of great value. The apartment is beautiful and comfortable, the furniture is elegant and the huge sea view balcony is amazing. The owners, Angela & Nael have been absolutely lovely and eager to make sure our stay was impeccable - as a most welcome plus, we found a wifi internet connection perfectly working. The apartment is located in a beautiful resort. There is a parking lot within the resort and has 24-hours security .Overall, fully recommendable

"Beautiful gardens"

We stayed here in late November and enjoyed lovely weather. The gardens were beautiful and lead straight to the boardwalk and beach. This was perfect for our two year old to run about and play in and great for going for walks with the buggy. The apartment was very nice and well equiped and spacious with lovely views over the gardens. Although tempertures got up into the twenties each day, the pools were still cold and whilst we could go in briefly, we couldn't bring our baby in. We were disappointed that the indoor pool was so expensive. The indoor pool is part of a luxury spa and you need to get a day pass which is e40 for adults and e20 for children, so for us to take the baby into the pool would end up costing e120. Banus is lovely, but expensive. It was nice to see all the superyachts, flash cars and designer stores, but that is not really our thing.

Apt 116 - Andalucia del Mar

"An end of season vacation that didn't disappoint"

The location is perfect, with the beach a 5 minute walk away and the beautiful Marina, an easy 10 minute walk. The marina with its super yachts, high end shops and lots of eateries and bars was a great place to sit and have a drink whilst people watching! The apartment was spacious, clean, and well equipped and with English channels it was a great place to relax of an evening once the sun had set (especially with a teenager) and a real home from home. We have not visited this area previously and whilst a car isn't a necessity, we did hire one and ventured up into the hills and out to Gibraltar, a mere 50 minute drive away and well worth a visit. We really enjoyed our stay and as we run a motorcycle hire business on the Isle of Man http://www.motorcycleadventures.im/ we are restricted to the times of years we can take a break. We were not disappointed with apt 116 and Pueorto Banus and thanks to Angela and Nael we had a wonderful time.

"Truly on the Beach and our second visit"

This is our second stay in this beautiful Andalusian style apartment,well located with excelent shops,Cafes and restaurants.this luxury two bedrooms,air conditioned apartment has all the homely comforts including all UK TV Programmes. Also the Apartment has beautiful scenery from the well-positioned balconies,enjoying the sea view and the Andalusian Gardens. Our November trip was quite warm with lovely sunshine all day and most likely will do this trip again in next November. For us ,no doubt, Puerto Banus is the most beautiful place to be in and the Andalusia Del Mar is truly 5 star Apartments.

"2nd stay in Apt 3.12 was as good as the first"

This is the second time I've stayed in Apartment 3.12. The apartment is immaculate and stylish and very comfortable for short or long stays (done long weekend with my two daughters and then a week with my partner). It is ideally positioned with lovely pool and gardens to relax in and a very short walk along the beach front to Puerto Banus, where there is everything you could want from beautiful beach, great selection of restaurants and shopping. The first visit I didn't hire a car and found everything there you could need. This time we hired a car and visited other resorts along the coast, but agreed we had the best base staying in this apartment, it has everything you want for a great holiday. Thanks Angela and Nael for letting us use your beautiful apartment again at very short notice and at a reduced price for returning to it again.

"Can't recommend this place enough :)"

I loved everything about this apartment- it is quiet, clean, great value for money and the location was amazing. You can tell a lot of effort had been put in to the apartment and it was also very comfortable. They have great Wifi and loads of Satellite TV channels and we didn't want for anything. The beds, bedding and towels were like the kind you find in 5 star hotels. Thank you so much!

"Excellent venue in an ideal location"

Pixie Place is a well appointed property on the banks of an off-shoot to the Thames. It is an excellent base for exploring the sights and museums of London, using Egham railway station, which is only a short drive away and with ample parking nearby. Windsor Castle and Legoland are also only a short drive away. There is a luxurious conservatory, facing the river, giving you the opportunity to observe the varied bird life of the area.

Great apartment with every facility. The beach is a 5 minute walk through the private garden with a 10/15 minute stroll to the Marina. Lots of top end shops and great bars and eateries to people watch. The resort was busy enough considering it was out of season and I can imagine it "buzzing" during the summer months, especially as the Ocean Club is right on your doorstep. We have not visited this area of Spain before and we were not disappointed. The owners provided a personal and first class service.

Wonderful apartment, place and experience!

Whether you are up for beach, shopping, street markets, nightlife, golf or Spanish wine on the balcony, when staying at this apartment in Puerto Banus you can have it all! Just one step from the beach and the Marina a 5 minutes' walk, you can find fabulous shopping opportunities at world renowned designer boutiques, stylish restaurants, trendy beach clubs, bars, night clubs and yet, we could recharge our batteries having a nice sleep behind the blinds in a quiet, cool and relaxing apartment. Dealing with the hosts was smooth and hassle free and took just 3 emails. Their 4th email was to return our breakages deposit back on the morning we left! Details and photos of the apartment and complex were exactly as promised with no surprises. Another plus is that you really do not need to have a car. A great holiday experience and would definitely recommend this apartment!!

“Lovely location”

We have just spent a lovely week at Pixie Place. The house is lovely and has everything you need for your stay. Location is first class, with plenty to do locally and in London. We went into London several times from Datchet station, 5 minute drive from house. There are nice walks locally along the Thames, or spend time just relaxing in the conservatory overlooking the Thames. Cannot fault the time we spent there, would highly recommend it for a holiday.

We have just returned from another wonderful week in apartment 514 in Puerto Banus.
Everything in the apartment was as before, very satisfactory and the weather was very kind to us.
We were even treated to a wonderful fireworks display by the nearby Ocean Club on the night before our departure.

“What a lovely place !!”

The house is lovely just a couple of yards away from the river Thames but was safe enough for my 5 year old to explore as there's a good size fence that her eyes could just peak over. I loved the conservatory as it felt like you where just above the water. The property is very spacious and furnished to a very high standard. Shops are 5 mins away by car to stock up the cupboards and restaurants that deliver if you don't feel like cooking. Windsor centre is only 10 minutes by car where there lots of lovely restaurants and coffee shops. Lego land was only 10 mins away also, which was a blessing !! I found the place very relaxing and would love to return !!

"Wonderful break away"
We were delighted on arrival at the beautiful location and surroundings. Once inside Pixie Place the feeling of space and luxurious decor was more than expected. The views from the decking and conservatory over the river Thames was outstanding. .. It truly felt like home and we soon settled in.
We were amazed at how well equipped this house is and lacked nothing. The owners decked out the study area with a whole selection of sight seeing and timetable info which we found really useful and dealing with the owners was an easy process, even receiving our deposit back before we'd even reached home. For the more outdoor types there are amazing walks and runs which I discovered just down the lane.
Lego land is a mere 10 min drive from Pixie Place and so is Windsor Castle.
We truly found this house to be as good as our own home and more which is a very rare attribute. We will definitely be returning and have recommended Pixie Place to our friends and family.

Lovely Apartment in a great Location

We had a great holiday in Puerto Banus. The apartment was clean and very well equipped. The rooms were very spacious and the apartment was nicely furnished. We enjoyed using the balconies with the views of the gardens and the sea. The children loved the pool and we used this every day. The location of the apartment was ideal as you could walk to the beach, port, restaurants and shops. Angela popped in to check everything was ok during our stay. We loved the Fly blue boat trip to Marbella and enjoyed exploring Marbella's old town. We also visited Benalmadena and enjoyed the butterfly farm and the large park in the centre. We ate out at lots of nice restaurants in Puerto Banus. La Sala and Piucaro were our favourites. If we were to visit again we would consider hiring a car so we could explore more of the area. Thank you Nael and Angela we've had a lovely holiday.

We are a family of four who spent a week in this beautiful, spacious apartment. We have two teenagers and there was more than enough space for our family. The apartment is lovely with marble floors, a big kitchen, and a balcony where we enjoyed eating. The laundry room was a huge convenience, I had much less laundry to do when we returned home from vacation!
The apartment is located in a beautiful resort where my kids loved swimming in one of the three pools after a day at the beach, which is only a few steps away, outside the garden. The restaurant by the pool has great food, by the way.
Nael and Angela are great, responsive hosts, and the process was very smooth from the booking to our stay. The apartment was a great homebase to explore Coata de Sol and even a day trip to Morocco! I highly recommend this apartment and will certainly book it again when we return to Marbella!

Me and my family, daughters age 13 and 17, and my husband have just returned from a lovely holiday staying at Puerto Banus rentals. The apartment we stayed in was spacious, clean and tidy and had a very traditional Spanish feel to it. It was well equiped and exactly as descriped. The gardens were beautifully kept, with lush green lawns and pretty flowers, giving it a relaxing and homely feel. Directly on the seafront and just 5 minutes walk away from Puerto Banus harbour, it was nice to be able to appreciate the relaxing atmosphere of the complex but yet near enough to the buzzing atmosphere of the town. We would definately return and would recommend it to anyone of any age. Thanks again for a great hoiday!

The apartment is the perfect complement to the posh Puerte Banus. Very good quality, spacious rooms (which I expect, but have rarely found as here) and all in a very well maintained complex with two large pools and a practical access to the beach.
Whoever wants to consume culture and therefore have a car / borrow, which is the garage (included in price) really appreciate! Parking is not possible in Puerto Banus de facto.
Puerto Banus is certainly an appropriate starting point for the most interesting cities (Sevillia, Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, Ronda up to the "Rock of Gibraltar".

Our two week stay at the Marbella apartments of Angela and Nael was really enjoyable. Actually working with Angela and Nael was overall a recommendable experience. Friendly and great service are the key words. The apartments lived up to the expectations in every way you can think of. Location, space, quality and the Playa del Duque park management are of high standards and quality with everything available that you can think of or desire. You do get friendly services and a good value for money. We are definitely thinking of returning next year. What a lovely place!

Thank you for another superb holiday. The apartment and complex are first class and live up to our expectations year after year. We feel very safe there as security is tight and staff are very friendly. Nael and Angela are most helpful and provided us with the Marbella newsletter via email, it was good to know what was going on in and around the resort. They also gave us good recommendations for eating out and places to visit. Customer service is excellent. The complex is nice and peaceful but when you step outside it can be as lively as you wish. We would highly recommend this property. We will be back! Thank you again from Debbie and Billy, Scotland Published

5 star Lovely !!!!!

I don't ordinarily write reviews, though I felt it would be only fair to give other prospective visitors an insight. Set in the quiet of Windsor, by the banks of the riverside Pixie Place is a haven of modernity and relaxtion. I visited with my extended family for a week in June of this year. We had a lovely , stress free and enjoyable 7 days. Only upset with knowing we had to leave on the Saturday. It was so enjoyable I have booked for not only next year, but for a week in the future years there after. I cannot recommend Pixie Place strongly enough. If you want quality, light, space to move around, comfort, and modern living without the bling then look no further. Very rarely do you come across 5 genuine stars , well now you can. Unfortunately I'm not related to the owners and again unfortunately I'm not being incentivised to give Pixie a good write up or 5 stars. Book it you wont be disappointed.

“Great place to stay for our vacation”

My husband and I recently travelled to England from the Bahamas with the intention of visiting old friends and catching up with family. Pixie Place was our home base from which we set out daily on our visits. It was always a pleasure to return home at the end of a long day to a comfortable, well-appointed house and because we are warm-weather people and May was unusually cold this year we really appreciated that the central-heating was on and the house warm and cozy. My favourite room in the early mornings was the conservatory with its bright and open feel - a place where I could sit and watch the ducks and birds and listen to the sounds of the river. Everything we needed was there and the instructions for the house and suggestions for places to eat and shop were very detailed and helpful. When we had trouble playing a DVD one evening (turned out to be a loose connection) Nael and Angela were very prompt in returning my emails. Everything about Pixie Place was great. From the initial rental process to receiving our security deposit promptly after leaving. One thing we would have liked to have is a telephone as none of our cellphones worked in the UK. We will have good memories of our stay at Pixie Place.

We have just returned from a week's holiday in Puerto Banus.

Penthouse Apartment 514 was very luxurious and was exactly as advertised and as portrayed in the photos. It was clean, very well equipped and the terraces surrounding the property meant that we could enjoy the sun and different views all day.

Whilst a hire car is not essential, we hired one from Yellow Car and they were very efficient, meeting us at the airport and bringing the car to us.

“"Pixie Place - perfect for a great holiday!"”

Pixie Place far exceeded our expectations; we had both researched the property thoroughly, prior to booking, and scrutinised its website entry in detail, and yet it still managed to wow us. Nothing but a personal visit can possibly do the place justice; everything about it was superb and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
We have holidayed in many luxury properties over the years, always booking through a letting company, and, initially were a little concerned to be booking directly with the owner; phone calls to both Nael and Angela, however, very quickly put our minds to rest and thereafter we benefitted from their very efficient, professional, and yet very personal, handling of all our queries and arrangements. It is, of course, cheaper too, to book directly with the owner, as this avoids management company handling fees.
Not only is the well equipped, spacious house a perfect holiday base, but it enjoys a fantastic location. Its riverside setting allows for peaceful walks along the Thames and yet it is so close to Windsor, London, LEGOLAND and the wonderful counties of Berkshire and Surrey. Old Windsor itself, offers so much, literally on the doorstep. We took advantage of the local Italian, Indian and Chinese takeaways, as well as the pubs and shops, and found all to give good service.
The check in and out procedures were good and our only disappointment in the whole holiday was that we had to leave!
We certainly hope to be back soon.
Many Thanks Nael and Angela

We enjoyed our stay at the apartment which is a wonderful retreat within a 5 minute walk through beautiful gardens to the beaches and promenade along the sea. Very peaceful. We had sunshine every day, a real treat for us at this time of year. The apartment itself is very comfortable and spacious, and well equipped with everything one could need. It is also situated in a great location with all the facilities of Puerto Banus within walking distance (even a fantastic fitness club nearby which we joined for a small fee). Marbella is a short bus ride away with an "old town" and many great cafes and restaurants. Many historical sites are also close by with day trips available to places like Granada, Ronda, Seville and others. Mijas also highly recommended to visit and accessible using public transit. For anyone wishing to visit this area of Costa del Sol, I would recommend this accommodation

This is a perfect place to go to get away from an English February. We were very comfortable here so much so that it took an effort to get off the balcony and actually go out. The effort is well worth it as this is a beautiful position in a lovely part of Spain. There is no shortage of good places to eat but if you do want to stay home and cook there is a very well equiped kitchen area and a very pleasant view as you sit and eat. Good supermarket 5 minutes away and Corte de Ingles close at hand for excellent fish and meat, not to mention a fine choice of Roja.
All in all a very good experience and the organization and information from the owners helped tpward a totally hassle free trip. Thanks to both

"Lovely apartment in a fantastic secure complex"

We stayed in apartment 2.12 for a relaxing break in February 2015. The apartment was immaculately, clean, well equipped and spacious. We found it was and just right for us (2 adults and 2 kids 6-12). The complex was gated and secure, with lovely well maintained grounds. We didn't use the pools due to the time of year. There was direct access to the seafront, which was really handy for my wife and I, as keen runners. If you are so inclined you can run along the seafront to central Marbella, which is 5 miles away. We found Puerto Banus to be quiet (at this time of year anyway!), with upmarket bars and restaurants. We enjoyed some lovely meals out, but the prices in the immediate area are higher than Marbella. However, the prices were still very competitive compared to what you would pay in the UK for an equivalent standard. We found the owners, Angela and Nael, to be extremely helpful and courteous. We enjoyed a very straightforward transaction to book the apartment, and everything was very well organised. We would have no hesitation in staying again in one of Angela or Nael's apartments. In summary, a lovely, spacious apartment, in fantastic grounds in an interesting location. Recommended.

“Excellent accommodation in the heart of P. Bañus.”

Traveling with small kids can be stressful and demanding if you don't have the right accommodation. That is to say, we are very glad we chose Nael's and Angela's apartment for our winter vacation in Spain. It is very well appointed, spacious with all a family needs for a comfortable stay. Furthermore the location is great, just a few meters from the beach and a nice walk to the marina and commercial center. Not to forget that the owner was always at reach when needed. We would definitely come back if we choose Puerto Banus for our vacations again.

I cannot put in to words how much myself and my friends loved this apartment. The decor was so modern, kitchen/living room/dining areas are so spacious. The kitchen had everything you could need - dishwasher, washing machine as well as air conditioning , a Safe, Tv and wifi. Despite the endless restaurants nearby, we cooked breakfast and dinner a few times and everything was perfect. The bathrooms are wonderful – powerful showers, deep bath tubs and luxurious towels. Also, there seemed to be plenty of plug sockets… for hair dryers, phone chargers and ipads, this was a blessing! The bedrooms were gorgeous with high end bed linens on the ever so comfortable beds. The beach is literally on the doorstep -just walk through the secure garden gate and you're there. You can walk into Puerto Banus or in the opposite directions for a lovely long walk using the board walk. Having the 24 hour supermarket on site kept us going, very well stocked and reasonably priced. The apartment feels very secure with a locked gate to the lift area which takes you up to the apartment. Our keys and information document were awaiting our arrival as promissed, the apartment is as depicted on the photo's, was so clean and so fresh smelling when we walked in. The bars, restaurants and shops are a short walk away - just walk through the beautiful gardens where the Birds of Paradise flowers are in full bloom and in abundance - you will find another secure gate which also leads you into Puerto Banus - perfect!! Overall, I really cannot think of anything negative to say about this upscale property and devolpment. The location was more than perfect and as their website says, "no need for a car here". The facilities were great and the owners were very helpful, making the booking process so easy...we'd even received our deposit back by the time we had returned to the UK When I return to Marbella, this is where I shall be staying, no doubt about it!

Our family had a fantastic christmasholiday in this very well maintained apartment. The view was gorgeous in any time of the day to sea and mountains. There was plenty of room for us parents and our two children. The apartment and location felt safe and relaxing and we received very good service from the owners. The location right next to beach is great even in winter. I can just imagine how great it is in summer.

The apartment was wonderful, made our vacation special. The owners were very cooperative and friendly. The garden was beautiful and unique, quite a view from the balcony. The apartment was clean, organized and had everything we need. Fully equipped kitchen, TV, super high speed Internet, towels and beddings. The complex is great, you have your own park to wander or just read a book. Location is superb, access door to the beach and 2 minute walking to Puerto Banus.

I would highly recommend booking your vacation here, it's the perfect setup for a perfect vacation.

Thank you Mr. Nael & Mrs. Angela for the wonderful hospitality. Hope to see you again soon.

"Excellent apartment, great and constant communication and perfect location"

From the moment of initial booking Nael and Angela were superb. Excellent communication and so helpful, this continued throughout our stay, including a bottle of wine delivered to the apartment for us to celebrate our anniversary, even to check we had arrived home safely. The apartment was superb, high quality fittings, a great size especially for just the 2 of us. Would be perfect for a family too. Everything you need is in the apartment. Comfortable beds, lots of storage and big bathrooms. The grounds were immaculate, beautiful gardens with rivers, pond and wildlife. Although the pools were not open, it is December, they looked stunning and well cared for. There is a few restaurants and bars on site too, these were not open again because it is December.The location is also perfect for the beach, the board walk takes you to the port and all the restaurants. We have been going to Puerto Banus for 30 years and a lot in the last 15 years so we know the area well this apartment is such a great location for the port, the supermarket, the beach, the clubs and bars, the Saturday Market and bus stops to other areas, all within walking distance.I would definitely recommend both the apartment and Nael and Angela.A truly relaxing break, will be booking again.

“Beautiful House - perfect for extended family or colleagues on business”

We stayed at Pixie Place for a few nights whilst attending to business nearby, it was a lovely house and accommodated my husband and I and colleagues in some style and was relaxing at the end of a busy day.
The owner communicates well and makes sure everything goes smoothly. We didn't really have time to enjoy the facilities to their full extent as we left every day early and returned when it was dark, but I can imagine it is lovely in the daytime, particularly if you want to visit Windsor area. No expense has been spared on the beautiful bed linen and towels and it has the feel of staying in a luxury hotel with added relaxation areas such as the spacious lounge, decking and conservatory if weather permits.

" Luxurious penthouse with wifi"
Apt 514 was everything we thought it would be! We had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in a beautiful penthouse....almost like home from home.....apart from the weather.... which was much better in Puerto Banus!!!! With 3 different balconies we were able to follow the sun until sunset. We didn't need a car which was a bonus, everything was very close by. A short stroll through the tropical gardens & the electronic gate took us onto the boardwalk and the beach and a further 5 or 6 mins walk we were in "The Port" Angela the owner called in to check we were happy with everything and of course we were! The photos on the web site are all true and both Angela & Nael seem to take great pride in being professional, organised & efficient with their rental properties and want all their guests to have a great time......we had only arrived at the airport to fly home when we received an email asking about payment details to repay our refundable deposit...very impressive!

“A great cozy holiday home”

We have stayed at the Pixie place and would recommend it for anyone who is looking for a relaxing stay at a homely place

The property is located on a quiet road by the river. It's just 5-10 mins drive to the Windsor which was amazing. It was ideally situated for us as we were visiting family who live off the M25. I found Windsor great for shopping as well. Had a memorable day in London, took the train and we were there in no time. So much to do locally, had a job to fit everything in. The Patio has a splendid dining area (wooden deck) by the water which we enjoyed

There was plenty of room for my family to spread in the open plan lounge/dining room plus more sofas in the sun room. I cooked a couple of times, everything I needed was there making it super easy to enjoy home made meals. We had 'takeaways' from the local village a couple of times, one even delivered which was really convenient. All in all we had a
great time. Owners were welcoming and friendly and quite contactable when needed. They did not charge for a couple of broken glasses, which I thought was a nice gesture, and received by deposit within a few days of returning back home. We look forward to be back soon

The location was convenient to access the South of England with easy approach to the Motorways and attending system.

We had never booked a holiday direct with an owner before and Angela and Nael Marar were excellent communicators, answering all our questions before and during booking, sending us clear and concise instructions on the process, payments, directions etc. The gentleman on reception when picking up the keys at Playas Del Duque was really pleasant and helpful. The apartment is situated on the first floor overlooking the beautifully cared for gardens in the complex of Andalucia Del Mar. There is a small pool which you can see from the lounge and master bedroom windows and a larger family pool at the bottom of the gardens to share. We enjoyed the sunny aspect from these two windows and balconies morning to evening all week!
The apartment was spotless on our arrival and really felt like home from home with a fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms one of which was en-suite. We paid extra for the wifi which was well worth it for our girls aged 16 and 19. Even though it was the middle of summer, we didn't feel we needed the air conditioning on much, as it was lovely and cool in the apartment. Although it is not necessary to hire a car, we did because we wanted to explore a little, but having said that the main drive we did was to Gibraltar (be prepared to queue at border control and don't forget your passports) and we recommend the cable car to the top of the rock for the breathtaking view, there is a free car park at the base of the cable car, don't even attempt to drive into the centre - we did and although we did find a parking space eventually, the narrow roads and one way system was quite hectic. Back at the apartment, the car parking space in the basement is included in the price. There is a lovely mini-cruise to Marbella which runs regularly from the Puerto Banus marina and we would recommend visiting Marbella Old Town as it is really picturesque with the beautiful Orange Square. This apartment is perfectly central for the shopping area of Puerto Banus, the marina with the boardwalk stretching right along the beach from the bottom of the gardens. There are a huge variety of restaurants along the Marina to suit all budgets. Angela called in to check we were ok on the Saturday morning and recommended the market - we did this, and there are a lot of stalls so give yourself plenty of time if you want to browse! Because Angela and Nael are based in Puerto Banus, it is obvious from the cleanliness and attention to detail of this apartment that they personally check the apartment themselves. Because of this, the location and excellent standard of apartment 116, we had a lovely relaxing holiday....our girls are now addicted to jet skiing (you can prebook in advance at Water Sports Banus turn right at the bottom of the gardens and walk along the boardwalk about five minutes) and I fear the bar is set way to high for any future holidays, thank you Angela & Nael.

This was the first time we had booked private holiday accommodation online. We did so somewhat nervously as the last thing we wanted was to book a substandard apartment. Booking the apartment went smoothly with the owner being both polite and informative. Each stage payment was acknowledge and the whole process was very professional. Upon arrival at the apartment we were delighted to find that the apartment was even better than we could have imagined! It was spotlessly clean and had all the mod cons expected of a luxury apartment. The complex is set in substantial gounds that are kept in fantastic condition and the beach is literally a couple of minutes walk away.

We are a group of friends that stay in the area every June, and Pixie Place has become our 'home from home' for the last two years.

The property is located on Ham Island, in Old Windsor near the lock, and has delightful view to the rear of the property over the weir and on onto the Thames. It's quite rural, but still just 5-10 mins drive to the shops.

You can enjoy the view from the properties spacious accomodation, including a large open plan lounge/dining room, with two large sofas and round dining table suitable for 6 diners in comfort. There is also a huge conservatory with another two sofas and a couple of easy chairs, with windows overlooking the weir. Finally the outside deck space with wooden patio furniture is a delightful place for breakfast, especially on a sunny day.

The kitchen is well equipt for those that want to 'eat in' (as we usually do) with lots of pots and pans, gas hob and electric oven, microwave and a large fridge freezer - There's plenty of glassware and cutlery around too. The Windsor farm shop is just 5 mins drive, where you can stock up of some real quality produce from the Windsor estate, or of course just arrange a delivery from Waitrose/Sainsburys to save you the hassle. Theres a local Co-op convenience store 5 mins away or a larger Tesco Express in the next village of Datchet, just a 10 mins drive.

There's a separate study too, if you have to do some work to do whilst you are away (something I personally try to avoid though) ;-)

The sleeping accomodation is excellent, with a large roomy double bedroom with en suite shower room to the ground floor, good wardrobe space and lots of drawers. To the first floor there are two further bedrooms (one double and one twin) with a family bathroom. A Z bed is also stored in the larger double bedroom for an extra guest.

Communication with the owners is swift and efficient, (by email usually), we have always found Nael and Angela helpful and courteous at all times.

Can't really fault anything - hope to return again in 2015 for our third consecutive year.

"Wonderful stay in Puerto Banus - yet again with Angela and Nael Marar"

Our preference has always been Playa Del Duque as we have rented from the Marar's on previous occasion. This year we stayed in Apt 1.3 in PDD and absolutely LOVED this apartment due to the bright open aspect overlooking the gardens to the newly refurbished kitchen and brand new fridge freezer Unfortunately we could only stay 5 nights of our 10 night stay and then had to transfer to Andalucia Del Mar aprt 5.14. This is a lovely penthouse apartment overlooking the gardens with view of the sea and panoramic views from the balconies on all elevations. I would not fault this apartment at all and would recommend but our own personal preference would always be for PDD. Special praise goes to Angela Marar who is very responsive and always keen to ensure that you are happy with your stay, so much so that Angela made contact with the concierge at PDD to allow us to use the gardens during our time at ADL as the gardens are not as good as PDD. The apartments are always well presented with all the amenities you need during your stay. I would have no hesitation in recommending renting from Mr and Mrs Marar as well as either apartment

This was my second time in Marbella but first time actually staying in puerto Banus.

From the moment we arrived at the doors we knew from the fantastic greeting by the door man it was going to be a special stay.

The room was amazing, the decor would be just how I would love my home to be, as for the views...words cannot really describe, over looking the beautiful gardens and looking out to the sea.

Everything we could want was literally on our doorstep, gateway from the beautiful gardens literally sharing a door with the infamous Ocean Club but still could not hear a sound.

The port and all it has to offer was literally a 5 minute walk.

We cannot wait to come back

Thanks so much to Nael and Angela who made us feel so welcome.

Having never previously hired a self catering apartment directly before, I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I needn't have worried. Nael's (owner) initial communications were really comprehensive, offering lots of useful information on what we may require during our stay and concise instructions on what to do on arrivale. Photos per the website, we later found, were also completely true to reality.

On arrival, we found the apartment was clean, spacious and tastefully decorated. Ample wardrobe space, two good sized bathrooms, large dining/living area and balcony off living room and bedrooms.

We didn't visit pool area, but could see from the apartment, there are two, which appeared to be very quiet with ample sunbeds.

Beach is two minute walk and its gorgeous - situated in front of the Ocean Club Marbella which is good for a bit of people watching! Puerto Banus Marina is about five mins walk away from the apartment. Would recommend for breakfast/lunch Deli Del Mar - very accomodating and amazing food. Nightlife fab, had an amazing time!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back!

We were two mature couples who rented 116 for 7 days this spring. The apartment is spotless, roomy, and well equipped. We very much appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the hospitality of our hosts: for example, one hair dryer did not work, and a replacement appeared within an hour. The shopping centre is nearby for major grocery purchases, but a mini-mart is handily around the corner. Beaches and the marina are an easy walk. The grounds of the complex are well maintained and we enjoyed our stay immensely. Directions to the complex were easy to follow. Thanks so much to the owners for accommodating our visit.

The property was amazing.Im not one for all flowers and plants, but I have to say that this plays is beautiful.The pools, the walkways, the scenery cant be beat.5 to 10 minutes walk to the marina, with restaurants, shops, galleries, etc... Our condo was great 2 bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms which was probably a little big for us just my wife and I, but the extra bathroom helped as did the spare bedroom for suitcases.The concierges were very informative, and spoke english no problem.We had a patio that we sat at and had few glasses of wine at night, with no noise.The kitchen had everything we needed for breakfest and coffee in the morning.We met the owners who came over to say hi and to see if everything was good, and it was, All in all we would go back tomorrow, if we could (weather was a little iffy) but enjoyed ourselves a lot.Thanks for getting this booked for us so fast, and having everything well prepared for us, Rick and Marilou (Orillia Canada)

Husband booked apartment on a whim for the month of March and luckily he made a great choice. The apartment lacked nothing, the location was beautiful. The standard of attention to the cleaning and maintenance were second to none. We are missing our morning exercise along the boardwalk already! Unfortunately, I took ill but the concierge contacted a doctor who came right away and was so reassuring. Nael and Angela were so helpful and for this we also thank them. Would absolutely recommend to anyone. We would hope to return in April of next year... pil pil prawns and crisp white wine can't wait. Brenda Murray

“A wonderfully relaxing stay”
5 of 5 stars

We stayed in apartment 3.12 from the 6th to the 10th April 2014. Party consisted of 2 adults with teenage daughter (14)

The apartment itself was appointed to a high standard, was clean and the bed and sofa were both comfortable, the floor was a little cool, although sometimes this was a blessing!

Although for the UK it was the start of the Easter holidays, it was not yet a school break in Spain, so the complex was pretty quiet and there was some works (mainly gardening) as they ensured the grounds looked their best for the break, pools were a little chilly for swimming in, but no cooler than most I have come across and warmer than some for this time of year.

We were very lucky with the weather, temperature most of the trip was over 25C, with a max of 29C.

The complex felt safe enough, with "fob" access to the beach and Puerto Banus harbour which were only a short stroll away, the amount of "touts" selling fake goods was annoying, but not a reflection on the apartment (or even Peurto Banus, as we found them at various beaches down the coast).

The apartment included car parking, although it says car hire is not required, we like to explore and like to work to our own timetable so for it it was necessary, but everyone is different.

The apartment has a large balcony, it's not south facing, so in April we did not get the Sun on there that often, but I imagine in summer the aspect of the apartment will help you stay cool without the need for running the air-con all day.

WIFI was available at a small additional cost and was fast enough, it even made daughter more sociable as the range did not extend into the bedrooms that well, so she joined us most evenings.

We had a couple of queries during the break and the response from the owners was always very prompt and polite.

Overall, we had a very relaxing break.

"Excellently located, comfortable apartment"
Excellent location, very well serviced by the owners, excellent customer service. Facilities exactly as described on the website. Underground parking was a bonus for us as we were off golfing most days, but there is no need to have a car as the apartment is close to beach and centre of Puerto Banus, walking distance to everything.

"Excellent high-end condo"
The apartment was impeccably clean on our arrival and everything exactly as advertised. It is spacious with great views to both the sea and the mountains, it is well furnished and has all necessary equipment and kitchenware. The only minor flaw is the bedding as the thin blankets are too cold for the winter months. The owners always answered queries promptly and were very forthcoming and helpful. The security deposit was returned in full on the day of departure. Puerto Banus is not very lively in the winter months with many restaurants closed. Marbella is not far away and has plenty fine restaurants but a car is required to get there. Many excellent golf courses within a short driving distance and more further afield.

REPLY:
We are so pleased to know our guests found our apartment to their utmost satisfaction...if only they had asked us about extra blankets we could have easily and quickly supplied them. At the same time, there are available surplus blankets in each bedroom wardrobe. We do not know what restaurants they are referring to being closed. Out of hundreds of restaurants, catering for international kitchens and all budgets. Very few restaurants do close for a week or two, to carry on some refurbishing in the low season in February. The weather was absolutely magnificent, and most restaurants were opened.

Al expectations exceeded !

Having booked this property, the instructions given to find and gain access to the property were clear and concise. When we arrived at the property, the front-desk staff were courteous, helpful and spoke and understood English very well indeed. When we entered the property, it was exactly as described; beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and tidy and a credit to it's owners. I telephoned Nael with some questions about the WiFi facility and found that he had just arrived in England and was in the middle of doing some shopping. Nevertheless he patiently answered my questions and went out of his way to ensure that I knew how to set up and re-charge the WiFi device. My wife and two of my oldest friends have been coming to Puerto Banus since 1984 and this short holiday must stand out as one of the best.

Apt 2.12
We stayed in apt 2.12 for a week in June and were so impressed with the apartment and complex that we wanted to go back in October. Unfortunately the apartment wasn't available so we stayed elsewhere which really didn't measure up as the pool was closed despite the good weather. I contacted Angela who very kindly offered us the use of the gardens/pools in Playa del Duque so we could keep our little girl entertained for a few hours each day! The apartment has everything one could need while on holidays and is very nicely furnished and decorated, a home away from home! The gardens are beautifully maintained with 3 lovely pools and 2 restaurants on site. Playa del Duque is an ideal location, only 2 mins from the beach through a private gate and a 7 minute walk to the centre of Puerto Banus and El Corte Ingles.
We will definitely be back next year!

"Amazing in every way imaginable!!"
Before I review the apartments, let me start by saying that Angela & Nael are beyond "Top Notch" people. Rarely do you find people of their calibre to do dealings with or become friends with. From the moment I contacted them through VRBO, they were on top of every question, answer or request I had. As for the apartments (I had the luxury of both 1.3 and 3.12) they are truly amazing). Both apartments have very strong points. First 1.3: We arrived here from the airport in Malaga by private transfer that I arranged. It was totally worth the 69 euro (I know you can get there cheaper, but come on folks, you are staying in the most luxurious part of Spain, I am sure you are coming here you can afford the transfer). He was waiting with my name as soon as I came out of the baggage claim. What made it so worth it, was he handled all our luggage, we only had to go to the car with him. The directions Angela & Nael gave were spot on. We picked up the keys and went right to the apartment. We could not believe the place. The view in this apartment is amazing, and you wake up with the same view from the master bedroom. The gardens here are absolutely pristine. The pools are amazing (only one open, but we were here in the off season, funny the sun is still hot as heck for an off season and the bars and restaurants were still packed as well. But we basically had the resort (I call the complex this because it truly has every amenity and beyond in it. Spa, health club, massages, restaurants, beach, pools, on and on...) all to ourselves. The apartment was more than we could have asked for. Bed, sheet, furnishings all top notch quality. The kitchen is fully stocked as well, and being a chef it was great cooking in almost one meal at least, every day. The second bedroom, although furnished and decorated incredibly nice with an amazing bathroom, does not have the view. So who pays take the master hahaha. Apartment 3.12: We were in these apartments for a very long stay, 18 days. They did not have full share in the first apartment so we had to move to this apartment for the last 7 days. We were a bit apprehensive because the first apartment was so nice. Honestly, we loved this one more. It did not have the view but the kitchen was amazing. Huge, the balcony was even larger, it doesn't have the view the other one had straight on, but when you were on there it had a lovely view all the same. Best part is, both bedrooms here are lovely. In short, do not hesitate, book this now.

"Beautiful apartment"

I have been coming to Puerto Banus for many years and have stayed in a mixture of timeshare, hotels and apartments. This apartment (3.12) was lovely and I would certainly return and recommend. The property is in a lovely up-market development with three swimming pools and beautiful gardens. Plenty loungers!! Not suited to rowdy parties as very quiet, particularly in the evenings. There are three entrances/exits from the development to the beach and port. All served by a key or fob making it very secure. I have been burgled elsewhere in the past so security is important to me. The apartment is very spacious with good quality fixtures and linens. We ate in a few nights and our every need in terms of utensils and cooking equipment was catered for. Nice TV etc. with loads of British channels. Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and would return here. Angela and Nael were a joy to deal with and my deposit was returned within 24 hrs of my return home.

We spent a wonderful stay in Marbella. The appartment is spacious, comfy and we felt very well welcomed and happy to live there for our holidays. All was perfect. The owners were gentle and they shown us, each time, the desire of satisfying their hosts. We found them very attentive and kind. They took care of everything with many professionalism. What a pleasure to spend some holidays in a clean and luxuous property like "Andalucia Del Mar". We have intention to come back again next summer in one of their beautiful properties as Marbella. We spent such a nice and wonderful stay that we just want to come back again ! Thank you so much !

A quick 45 taxi ride from the airport and we were safely in the apartment (1.12) drinking wine on the spacious balcony.
The apartment is clean, well furnished and very secure. The utility room gives the added bonus of taking clean clothes back home!
The bedrooms are airy and comfortable with loads of wardrobe space. The bathrooms as good as any 5* hotel I have stayed in.
The main feature of the resort is the beautifully kept gardens. There is no need for umbrellas as the trees give as much or as little shade as you want. There is a real family feel about the resort with all ages enjoying the warm sunshine and the 3 excellent pools.
Peurto Banus itself it very (VERY) expensive - so having self catering was a blessing. A huge supermarket is 5 minutes walk away and the meat and veg is on par with Waitrose and M&S.
If you are planning to use the beach, then suggest you buy a couple of chairs and a parasol rather than spend £10E a day on each sunbed! - or, as we did travel into Marbella to, in our opinion, a much nicer beach where the beds are half that.
People watching is a must - the marina boasts many designer shops and the supercars that do the marina circuit kept my boys happy for hours whilst I enjoyed a wine or two at one of the bars.
All in all, a very nice apartment, a great resort, and an interesting area. Wouldn't recommend if on a budget - but if you can, definitely worth a visit!

** Thank you for your review Lisa - it is very much appreciated.
It's also worth noting that here are plenty of bars and restaurants suit suit all budgets. **

It was in a really good location next to the beach and couple of minutes walking distance from the shops and marina, there is a supermarket very close by. On Saturdays there's a market not to far away, walking distance. There was also plenty of restaurants to choose from. The owners have been very helpful and get a quick reply with your questions.

We stayed here with our two youngest daughters and our son visited for a week then our eldest daughter and her fiancé. Excellent private location. The concierge by the entry gate and the key operated gate to the beach were great to have. Secure underground car park too. The town and harbour are close but not too close. A convenience store is a few minutes walk. The apartment was spacious and well appointed. Just as described and the wrap-round terraces meant we all had plenty of sunbathing room or just somewhere quiet to sit and read. All residents seemed nice. The owner was lovely and always concerned that all was right. Certainly recommend. Will return no doubt

"Excellent stay at in Old Windsor"
Really enjoyed our stay. Great location only a few minutes outside of Windsor itself. Quite lovely location on the water. Enjoyed watching the boats go by. The house itself lived up to all all expectations (wi-fi was a little slow) .Great launching point for London a places west. We did the harry potter studios, Oxford, Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle, Maidenhead/Marlow, local pubs. All good!

My Response

Pixie Place is a fantastic location suitable for all members of the family as said by our guest. Many of our previous guests have stayed at Pixie Place not just because of the easy access to so many exciting attractions within in the UK and the immediate/surrounding area but also for the access to the rest of Europe as Heathrow Airport is a 20 minute drive away. We're so pleased to hear how our luxurious property lived up to all expectations. We shall investigate the reported slow WIFI speed. This was never reported previously.

“Beautifully appointed immaculate 'home from home' on the Thames in a convenient location to all attractions.”

Everything about Pixie Place exudes comfort in a delightfully appointed immaculate decor with every upscale amenity aptly provided in a peaceful and beautiful setting on the river Thames in Old Windsor. We particularly enjoyed relaxing in the light-filled conservatory watching the swans and ducklings and the various boats that drifted along the river. The location affords easy access to all the local attractions, and walks along the river nearby the house were a scenic delight. Plush towels and designer linens, appliances, comfortable furnishings, decor, lighting, kitchen appointments, tourist brochures, informational booklet, fabulous shower and bath facilities,off street parking, even binoculars!... and so much more awaits anyone who has the opportunity to stay at Pixie Place. We have been refreshed by this 'home from home' and look forward to a return visit in the future.

"Dream Holiday"

My husband arranged a surprise anniversary present for us to stay at the Penthouse Apartment in Andulucia Del Mar. We had the most wonderful holiday and had the time of our lives. The apartment was luxourious with every amenity you could wish for. The decor and furnishing were of the highest standard and we relaxed and enjoyed every second. The views were beautiful overlooking the sea from the front and the mountains to the rear. Peurto Banus harbour, the shops, cafe-bars, restaurants, coffee shops were terrific and we could spend hours just watching the world go by. The place was full of energy with lots going on but at the same time it was chilled out. We have never been there before but from now on it is my number-one destination. My husband and I stayed for a week last year in the owners UK property in Windsor and because we enjoyed it there so much, on the strength of that holiday and the quality of service given by the owners, my husband booked the Peurto Banus apartment.

From the moment we stepped into this wonderful apartment, we were wow'ed. It is spacious, very well furnished and equipped, and the views out to sea are stunning.

“Pixie Place - Perfect”
5 of 5 stars

We arrived on a very cold Easter saturday to find a lovely spacious, clean and very well equipped house.

The view from the Conservatory was very relaxing, watching the river meander by.

The house is in good proximity to Old Windsor with a good Co-op supermarket, that is well stocked, and some good family restaurants. Its location, on a island in the river, and at the end of a country road means whilst it is very tranquil a car is recommended for travelling around.

We travelled into London from Datchet station which is only 5 minutes away and has sufficient all day parking.

There is plenty to see close at hand, especially Windsor and the Castle.

The house is an ideal place to return home to each evening as it is so comfortable. Our son has autism and enjoyed having the space to move around whilst we were able to relax knowing that he was in a safe environment.

The booking process was handled well by the owners and the website was particularly helpful in allowing us to show our son where we were going so that he would be relaxed and helped him settle quickly.

It is certainly a property we would visit again, though perhaps in warmer weather to allow us to better advantage of the available walks in the surrounding countryside and watch the boats going through the lock on the other side of the river.

“Superb in every Respect”
5 of 5 stars

We stayed for one week at Club Playas Del Duque wanting a central location to relax in Puerto Banus. This Apartment is superbly located, furnished and has all the necessary "home comforts". The added bonus is that it is quiet, with the most glorious surroundings. Beautifully landscaped private gardens, pools, bar/restaurant and loungers ensured a very relaxing holiday. In terms of the location it is the best in Banus - having looked at other options, Club Playas Del Duque is close enough to walk to ALL Banus has to offer, as well as the surrounding beaches. However it is just far enough away from the Port area to ensure that you can escape the noise and late night revelling.
The booking process was easy, great communication, very helpful with arrival/departure information and transfer options. This made our Holiday experience just perfect and I would return tomorrow without hesitation.

“A little piece of heaven!”
5 of 5 stars

Recently returned from a week's stay at Pixie Place where we celebrated my fathers 80th Birthday. Fabulous location away from all the hussle & bussle yet close to everything, and in a lovely peaceful setting. We enjoyed seeing the wildlife on the river and despite it being bitterly cold that week we were very cosy and even sat in the conservatory several afternoons enjoying the winter sunshine. Loads of places to visit nearby. My parents were too elderly to enjoy walks in Windsor Great Park but that would be a great place to explore if you enjoy the outdoors. The Windsor farm shop is nearby with a great range of food and a lovely café which is highly recommended.Everyone especially enjoyed a trip to Richmond and the drive around the park. Fabulous to get so close to all the stags and deer followed by refreshments at Pembroke Lodge where you can enjoy the wonderful vista over the Thames. Went to the theatre in Windsor one evening, a delightful venue and highly recommended. We ate out a lot but if you wanted to cater for yourself everything is provided for you. The accommodation is very spacious, plenty of comfy seating and although there were several generations to cater for, you could still find a quiet corner if you wanted a peaceful read or merely enjoy the wildlife. We had a great time and would like to visit again. I'm sure it must be lovely in summer when you could enjoy sitting outside watching all the activity on the river. Nael & Angela were very helpful and the whole booking process was easy and straightforward. Would highly recommend it to anyone contemplating a stay in Windsor.

This apartment, view and location is truly a slice of heaven. We stayed for one week and we felt that was not enough time here if you want to do day trips elsewhere.So plan ahead! We were four people and not one of us was disappointed. We we both loved our bedrooms, they were spacious,with comfortable beds, coverings and pillows. The bathrooms well appointed,as was the kitchen. Puerto Banus proper we more or less passed on in favour of the surrounding towns and villages. Perhaps on a future trip ! All in all a lovely diversion to our normal winters in Spain.

"The Perfect Home away form Home"
Our family, 7 in total, could not have been happier with our choice to stay at Pixie for 21 days. The house is superb in every way, The location is rural, well for only 1.5 miles then you are in the town of Old Windsor, and a 30 min jog to Windsor, and we will miss the drive over the bridge and down the lane. The house nesstles on the edge of the Thames, plenty of walks along the river, Swans freely come up to the waters edge for some feed. We found this home is immaculate condition and extreemly clean, spacious, warm, and so so homley. Spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, and family area. Of special like to myself was the conservertory where we could sit and watch the snow fall onto the roof and the passing Thames. Then owners were so accommodating. We broke the dryer and it was fixed in two days, and with snow falling and plenty of water about they even had Wellies provided for us. Coming form a country where big spaciouis homes are the normal, Pixie was simply perfect and a must to stay at if you are planning to base yourself in outer London. We travelled to Dublin by plan and just 20 mins form Heathrow, and then to Paris by Eurostar, that was just 50 mins to St Pancreas. We will stay at Pixie again, and thankyou to Angela and Nael for beign such careing hosts.

" Two thumbs up!!! "
We enjoyed almost a month at Pixie Place. It was more than we had imagined it would be.It was extremely well equipped with absolutely everything from a crock pot to real chrystal wine glasses. Hosts Angela and Niall were very attentive and helpfulul. We stayed for two weeks with our adult children and then on their departure we were joined by our logntime friends. We hosted a family reunion there for 50 plus people. .When it threatened to rain neighbor Jilly and Jim were so helpful lending us a rain canopy. It has been almost a year now since we were there and when I look back I think of our time there as close to home away form home as we could have had it . Two thumbs up!!!

OWNER RESPONSE:
A luxury vacation rental by owner. Windsor has the seductive Royal residence. It is England's most visited, and London's favourite urban rural retreat. It has been enjoyed once again by another family from the USA. It is outstanding location at any time of the year and magical.....although we must point out that gatherings or events of more than 7 guests is not allowed because of insurance cover.

“Really happy - what a great house & location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We were so happy to arrive at the Pixie Place house in Old Windsor. We were not exactly sure where we were coming to, but as we got close we realized we had made a great (lucky!) decision. The house is located wonderfully down quiet country lanes on a private road. The house itself is new and modern, but retains a great deal of charm both inside and out. It backs on to the river just a few feet away and is quiet and surrounded by huge trees. The few folks we did encounter on the road were friendly and happy to see us! The house itself has everything you could ask for - all modern amenities and is of a good size. We were 2 adults with an infant and also 2 other adults and 2 teenagers. Everyone was happy and comfortable. No reason whatsoever we would not return here on a future holiday if we're in need of a place to stay. Again, we feel lucky that we found this house. The communication with the owners was superior both before, during, and after our stay. What more could you ask for?

“Haven by the water”

I stayed at Pixie Place for a week with friends last month and had a relaxing, peaceful week.
We found booking the accommodation straightforward and the communication from the owners was excellent, they replied to our queries very promptly. Booking was easy and payment by PayPal was a safe and convenient method.
The house is located by the river with beautiful views from the sitting room and a deck that was perfect for enjoying a drink on in the evenings.
Whilst there we visited Windsor castle and watched the changing of the guard, the house was located perfectly so as to be near enough many attractions but still remote enough to enjoy a restful break.
The furnishings in the property were plush and comfortable and all the included extras such as wifi and sky movies were a nice touch.
Though we didn't make use of it this time, in future we thought it would be a good location to stay before a flight from Heathrow, as it is only a short drive away.
Overall I would recommend a stay at this property to anyone looking for picturesque views and a country feel yet so convenient to get to the buzz of central London.

“A magical Home In an Idyllic location”

Pixie Place is Home in an ideal location on an island by the river Thames with scenic walks and close proximity to Windsor and only a short trip from London.
We loved the spacious airy conservatory where we watched ducks and swans waddling on the river bank into the beautiful garden.
The house was spotlessly clean with a well stocked kitchen and with all the facilities we could possibly wish for. The living room and dining area was ideal for our extended family gatherings. The bedrooms were contemporary and comfortable ad the bathrooms were modern with excellent showers. The private office space with WiFi made it a useful addition to the facilities made available to us. All furnishings were of the highest standard.
Pixie Place cast its enchanted spell on us - we can't wait to return.

Just got home from a lovely holiday in Puerto Banus staying in Playas del Duque for the 2nd year running. We have 2 small children and find the apartment a home from home, UK TV being an important factor with two small children. Another big bonus being that you can walk straight onto the beach and into the Port from the apartment via the beautiful gardens and pool areas. The apartment is very well equipped and you feel very secure there with 24hr security and concierge service. We would recomend this holiday home to all our friends and family.

“A dream come true”

My family and I have such fond memories of our stay at Pixie Place. We've traveled extensively and have stayed in some of the finest accommodations. But this location has a special place in our hearts. Our daughters delighted to feeding ducks on the river. My husband and I appreciated the easy ride from the local station to London. The home is both cozy and spacious given the comfortable furnishings. We appreciate the strict adherence to 'no smoking' inside. Given our busy lives in the States, we were fortunate to stay in a place that felt very much like home. We could pretend to be living abroad with all of the conveniences! This beautifully appointed property is home to a few mother-of-pearl inlaid furnishings which add to it's allure.

“Superb Retreat”

Having recently stayed at Pixie Place with my family I feel compelled to write a review about the fantastic time we had!

We booked Pixie Place for a week break whilst our family met up for our annual gathering and we were all exceptionally pleased and happy
with the accommodation and also by its location.

Pixie Place is nothing short of pure luxury and to be honest the details and photographs do not do it justice.
It is large, bright and spacious with breathtaking views from the lounge and conservatory which sits overlooking the river, and I can honestly say that sitting with my family watching the swan's swim past us at the bottom of the garden was the most relaxing time I have had in a long time!

The rooms are all decorated beautifully whilst still remaining homely and cosey. It is pristine and has every amenity that you could possibly want for.

There was plenty for adults and the children to do locally for entertainment, from the beautiful grounds of Windsor castle to Lego Land and plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from, the theatre and it is very convenient to travel to central London by train or bus.!

The booking process was extremely simple and my deposit was returned 24 hours after our departure.
I would be happy to recommend this beautiful home from home residence to all my friends.

Having spent many happy hours rowing in the Thames Valley, it was lovely to return to Pixie Place for a second time. This wonderfully appointed Thames side house,fitted with all the modern amenities one would expect from such a luxurious property,is ideally placed to explore this special part of England. Located in Old Windsor, the house is only minutes away from the ancient town of Windsor and its Royal castle. Shopping, sightseeing and visiting one of its many restaurants are local pleasures to enhance any vacation. This is a location that my wife and I would have no problem in returning to time and time again. We would strongly recommend Nael and Angela's riverside home,to both UK residents and overseas visitors.

“Superb holiday getaway very highly recommended.”

We arrived to find the house in a superb location and the property just as described by the owners.
We were pleasantly surprised how well maintained the property was and was thoroughly cleaned to a high standard.
Each bedroom had a supply of good quality freshly laundered towels nicely presented , the bed linen was of good quality and there was more than enough cushions and pillows ready for a good night sleep.
As we arrived with three young children, their needs had also been catered for including a cot and high chair, enough information leaflets on local attractions and children's attractions to keep a family more than entertained and the property also benefited from Sky TV in the more than spacious lounge area and an extra TV in the master bedroom.
As the property is triple glazed we didn't notice any aircraft noise as described in the previous review unless you were actually stood outside taking a keen interest in the planes as our two year old did !!!!
he views overlooking the river on a beautiful sunny New Years morning were emailed back home to share with our family and friends !!!
We found the owners to be more than helpful and communication was excellent, even advising us which trains took us into London on a 'fast service' (21 mins).
A ten minute drive into Windsor with ample parking, superb restaurants, shops and entertainment not to mention a visit to the castle was superb very highly recommended.

Thankyou for having us !!!

"Perfect for our Family of 6"

We spent one week at Pixie Place, and it was fabulous. The house is modern and spacious, and well-appointed with high-quality appliances and furnishings. It was thoroughly cleaned and ready for our arrival. Check-in was easy, and we were given a good introduction to how everything works. This is a great location for exploring the surrounding countryside, but also easy to get into downtown London (we drove 15 minutes to Slough to take a 30-minute train ride to Paddington -- buy the "all day" travel card and you'll have both the round-trip train plus unlimited underground and bus travel in London). There are a couple grocery stores located close by, and a few places to eat as well (try Punto for really good Italian food!). It was a relaxing and enjoyable week -- we would definitely recommend Pixie Place, and look forward to staying there again on our next trip to England!

“Pixie Place is amazing.”

We had a wonderful week at Pixie Place. The house was stunning, spotless and everything you could hope for. There was so much to do right on the doorstep, however it was difficult to tear ourselves away from the place. We had a lovely rest day from the busy day trips. We walked down by the river to the local pub for lunch then spent the afternoon in the conservatory watching the neighbours float by in their boats. It was heaven. Can't wait to go back.

“Prestigious apartment within beautiful tropical gardens and superb beach/port location. in Puerto Banus.”

A prestigious apartment set in beautiful tropical gardens within walking distance of both the beach and port of Puerto Banus. The apartment is extremely well proportioned and extensively appointed. The living area has comfortable sofa's and large glass dining furniture. The terrace boasts fabulous views over the gardens and a side sea view.The gallery kitchen has an open aspect into living area. A very spacious master bedroom with en-suite and a delightful view over the gardens. A second bedroom has twin beds and en-suite. The complex has 24 hour concierge and security. We regularly return to Playa del Duque as it offers a very high calibre of accommodation with easy access to the beach and the port. We would recommend hiring a car as the surrounding area is well worth exploring. Granada, Cordoba and Seville are all only 2 hrs by car and the lovely hilltop villages of Mijas and Benhavis are 30 mins. Car hire is not essential as shops, restaurants, beach bars/clubs are all within walking distance. We highly recommend this apartment for couples and families with children.

"Possiby the best vacation home ever!"

I took a trip back home (I grew up in Berkshire) to help my Mum celebrate her 80th birthday. Came across Pixie House on vrbo.com as I was looking for accommodations for other family members (a party of 7 of us travelled from the US for the event) and was impressed with the description and location. Little did I realize that the impression made in the online posting was actually "under-stated"..... when we arrived we were absolutely blown away. The house is beautiful, sparklng clean, spacious and magnificently furnished and decorated. We were met by Mrs. Johnson, right on time, and she provided the keys and a thorough rundown of how everything worked and left us to enjoy a wonderful 5 days. The sunroom overlooking the water is magnificent, as is the adjacent deck. The bedrooms are spacious and living room (with huge HD TV set) is gorgeous. The little "cul-de-sac" in which its located is very quaint and private and the whole experience was simply brilliant. To top it all, we calculated the cost of the stay for 7 people was a little over half of what it would have cost for us to stay at a local hotel.... and with none of the luxuries we enjoyed. Thank you Nael and Angela..... if we plan a similar trip in the future, we'll be in contact!!

“House is shown accurately in the pictures and excellent service by the owners”

I travelled with my parents, brother and sisterinlaw and my 9yr old son so there were 6 of us in all. Although we are from the UK originally we live in the US and are used to the luxury and size of US living. Of course there is always apprehension as to whether a place will live up to expectation but we neednt have had a moment of worry. The drive to the house is through some country lanes which adds character and the feeling you are truly enjoying the English lifestyle.....it is worthwhile looking up where Old Windsor is on a map...it is an excellent location to get to Windsor and also to the main highways around West London. It is also very convenient to get to HeathrowAirport. We drove straight into London and were parked at Harrods in 35 mins. The house itself was fantastic from the moment we drove into the secluded gravel driveway. There are a few steps up to the front door and then as you go into the house you are met by a light and airy hallway leading into a good size family room. I dont need to describe each room as the pictures shown on the website are accurate and give a good feel of how the house actually is. In fact if anything the house is better than the pictures especially the conservatory area. The house was extremely well maintained and every convenience had been thought through and made available. The kitchen is especially well stocked with flatware and crockery. The bathrooms were great and there was excellent water pressure in the showers. The central heating was very strong and we had to turn it off, it warmed up so quickly! Although we were on vacation, i did have to attend to some work and there is a nice office where you can shut the door and have some privacy. The Wifi access worked immediately. The owners were very quick to reply to our queries before we got there and the whole time we had the feeling that our dealings were straight forward.
I have been trying to think of something to say that "could have been improved" but i really cannot think of anything. We would most definitely book again and have already recommended it to family and friends.

“Apartment and area as described by owners”

We would like to thank Nael and Angela for making this an excellent holiday for us; they were always available and ensured everything ran smoothly throughout.
We thoroughly enjoyed our apartment, which had everything needed for a self-catering break, for example, cooker, microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher; comfortable seating indoor and outdoor, and comfortable bedding. Apartment bright and spacious, with no feeling of being hemmed in. Also plenty of utensils and glasses etc.
The location was perfect. Less than 10-minute stroll to Marina and to Cortes Ingles, a superb hypermarket in town centre which has everything you would ever need.
Beautiful walks along the beach and wooden pathway. Cafes and restaurants excellent...especially La Sala (very upmarket but also very reasonable); also can recommend Picasso and The Old Grill at the marina.
An ideal base as we never drive on holiday, and so the closeness to the town centre made 116 Andalucia Del Mar the perfect place for us...and we will return.

“5* all round without fault. I cannot think of more praise”

Absolutely wonderful holiday, which we will repeat again and again. This has been our third year in a row and we absolutely love it all. Family of four with two teenage girls.

Excellent luxury accommodation at a great price, in lovely private grounds, perfect location by the beach and within walking distance to the centre of Puerto Banus. 5* all round without fault. I cannot think of more praise for this accommodation, location and hosts.

We have tried 2 of the apartments within Playas Del Duque and loved then both. I remember my reaction and that of my family on first arrival. We were amazed at the quality and space available in both apartments. We walked around between all the rooms with joy as they exceeded all our expectations.

Both apartments are extremely well equipped with everything you will need, with every detail covered.

The grounds are large and have a “park-land” feel with three great pools. Our daughters loved each one and were spoilt for choice. The gardens are perfectly manicured and well stocked with beautiful plants and bushes. A perfect location to relax on long, warm Spanish afternoons and evenings.

The apartments have a great mix of couples and families, age-groups and a real relaxed Spanish atmosphere. The pace of life is perfect. The pools are so quiet in the mornings even through to mid-day. Try the on-site restaurants for both the late-afternoon “lunch” or evening dinner. Great selection of food with friendly staff.

Puerto Banus has a huge range of restaurants to cover all tastes at all price ranges. All within a short walk on the beach front. Try “Google-Earth” view of the location to appreciate the benefits of this location.

As for the hosts, Angela and Nael, we couldn’t have wished for better. Whether you want no hassle or support. On our first year, we didn’t meet them which in it’s own way was great. On our second and third year, we needed a bit of advice regarding local doctor. Angela and Nael provided great assistance and support and their concern was reassuring. They did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible.

We will be back.

Having stayed at this apartment twice now I can say that it really feels like a 'home from home'. It's very comfortable and is extremely well equipped. We stayed for 3 weeks each time so did not want to go out every night, and the apartment, lovely terraces and great views made staying in a pleasure. Having two teenage sons, being near the Puerto Banus nightlife is a must, and this apartment is perfectly positioned in that it's a 5 minute walk from the port but is also in a peaceful area. It's also positioned right on the beach, with two pools. I would say a great choice for a family with kids of any age. it certainly ticks all the boxes for us and our boys.

We work hard all year round, so our holidays are important to us. We don't want to become aggravated by an ineffecient and unhelpful booking process, and we don't want to be disappointed when we arrive to find the booking was not what we had expected. We have very high standards, and are not easily pleased.
So it gives us great pleasure to write this review - in a nutshell, everything was absolutely perfect!
The listing description on the website was accurate regarding the location, layout and amenities (in fact it was better than the photos led us to believe!)
The property was spotless, and was very well-maintained throughout.
Angela and Nael were extremely effecient in dealing with the whole booking process and answering our questions.
The location was perfect - close enough to stroll into Puerto Banus in 10 minutes, but far enough away to leave all the noise behind at night.
We are already looking to book our next holiday there, and would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative

We have just returned from our 2 week holiday and the apartment was lovely. Everything was so clean and modern and very comfortable. The grounds where we spent nearly everyday by the pool (there are 3 to choose from) were well maintained with helpful staff (especially the sunbed guy), and the pool itself was clean and inviting. If you prefer sand and sea when you sunbathe, the beach is right on the doorstep.

The apartments location was 5 minutes walk from the main harbour where there are plenty of restaurants to choose from.

Thanks to Niall and Angela for being on hand to help us with any questions we had during our stay.

We had a great stay at this apartment in Puerto Banus. The apartment exceeded our expectations, it was ideal, brilliant space and large sun terraces. The location, pool, concierge were all great.

Our girls haven’t stopped talking about our stay at the apartment and I expect we will be back again. We will certainly recommend and I don’t mind if you publish our feedback!

MANAGEMENT RESPONSE:
The location of our apartments are ideal for families with young children or teenagers, for wheelchairs, pushchairs, golfers or just plain beach bunnies and not forgetting the skiers who enjoy the Sierra Nevada mountain snow and then retreat to the beach to re-charge their batteries.

Our gated developments are manned with 24 hour security staff, secure underground parking,
key fob access to/from the beach and for the board walk to Puerto Banus Marina and so, all part of
a safe and secure environment to holiday in.... In fact, if you don't want to move around too much everything is available within 50 metres.....WiFi in the apartment, health and beauty spa, supermarket, a la carte restaurant, casino, pharmacy, cafe

When "siesta" time arrives, you can lounge in a cool and inviting apartment luxuriously furnished or just relax on the spacious balcony before heading out to explore the wondrous sights in the harbour at Puerto Banus Marina where you can find fine dining, exquisite designer shops and laid back piano bars.

The location of this property surrounded by a beautiful well kept garden is a hidden treasure. We have stayed here a few times and always come back as it ticks all our boxes. The apartment is spacious, clean and well maintained and in a secure complex. The beach is almost on your doorstep and good shopping facilities are very close by. There are many good restaurants along the harbour and surrounding area and there also a couple of restaurants that are located on the complex, ideal for breakfast or lunch, especially if you just want to spend the day lounging by one of the 3 pools and taking in the beautiful gardens. Sitting under one of the palm trees with the bright blue sky makes you feel like you are in paradise.

Anyway cut to the chase the apartment was superb.. able to relax a couple of afternoons watching Wimbledon as the apartment has all the English TV channels you'd need . The gardens and the 3 pools were fantastic and open either of the back gates you are within a 5 minute walk of the main streets of the port itself. Just so simple to have a nice meal and a few drinks and be able to walk home within minutes.. no cabs , no car parking hassles .. so simple and makes the holiday more enjoyable.
Highly recommended apartment. Neal and Angela made it all so easy to book and just run smoothly. Brilliant and so enjoyable.

El apartamento es fantástico, amplio, con bonita decoración y sobretodo que tiene todos los utensilios que uno puede necesitar.
Lo que mas me ha gustado son sus amplias terrazas, con sus vistas maravillosas y donde se puede disfrutar del sol sin salir en casa. Esta situado al lado de la playa, en una zona tranquila y céntrica.
Lo recomiendo sin ninguna duda y espero tener ocasión de volver pronto.

Great location and lovely apartment
We have stayed in a range of different accommodation in Banus for a number of years and this apartment was high on the list of great places to stay. Ideally located and a nice and well furnished accommodation. The facilities were great with really relaxed and well tended pool areas and gardens.
Owner comment:
We pride ourselves on providing comfortable, beautiful and luxurious accommodation to add to the perfect holiday experience! We're so pleased you enjoyed the manicured gardens and pool areas too..... see you next time!

Myself and my friends have been to Puerto Banus many times and have stayed in both hotels and apartments, but this was by far the best. The grounds of the apartment were looked after beautifully. The accommodation was very clean and spacious with all the appliances we could want. The beach and night life were a short walk away. Both myself and my friends would recommend this accommodation, in fact we are hoping to book again very soon.
Owner comment
Thanks Lisa, it's a merit to our housekeeping staff and the gardening/maintenance team that we can offer such beautiful surroundings. Club Playas Del Duque really is the jewel in the crown on the illustrious "Golden Mile"! We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and really look forward to seeing you again soon!

We always dread the first day experience in finding a new property. In this case it went smoothly from start to finish and the apartment was comfortable and in an excellent location near to the beach and all the amenities of Puerto Banus. I would highly recommend it.

02 Apr 2012 “Beautiful apartment and complex"
Nael and Angela were extremely helpful.”
Really lovely apartment. Very spacious, beauticully decorated and with every appliance and convenience you could wish for. The complex had beautiful gardens, pools, direct access to the beach and it's own restaurants and security.
Puerto Banus is a beautful town with plenty to do and great places to eat.
Nael and Angela were very helpful and efficient. Emails were answered promptly and accurately. They have a very professional setup. More then that they even went to the trouble of buying new high chairs and providing cotts (with better, non-standard mattrasses and extra bedding) for out little children. We couldn't have asked for more.
Highly recommend.

Perfect Location
Review Submitted: March 20, 2012 For Apt 3.12
We stayed here after a recommendation from friends. The location is perfect everything is in walking distance. You walk out of the apartment complex onto a beautiful beach you can then walk along the beach path into the port. If you walk out of the main entrance the shopping centre of Puerto Banus is on the doorstep. We went to all our usual restaurants and didnt have to take a taxi once! after staying at various apartments further out in previous years it was so relaxing to be able to walk everywhere. We have 2 year old twins and cots and high chairs and all bedding were provided. everything is of excellent quality. You will not be dissapointed if you stay here.
Owner's Response: We are delighted to know that our guests have enjoyed their stay.
They have specially enjoyed the unique location of our apartments as you do not need a car here,
at the same time you are away from any noise.
Our gardens are the prize winning gardens on the Costa del Sol, Park like
tropical gardens with 3 large swimming pools, two private restaurants, one gate leads onto the beach and the other gate leads into Marina Puerto Banus. The world famous Ocean Club is at the bottom our gardens.

“A stunning apartment in a paradise”
First of all, the owners are the most kind and warm persons we have met. It has been a real pleasure to meet them and deal with them.
We have enjoyed our holiday very much, much more than we have ever expected. Puerto Banus is a paradise and the apartment is absolutely stunning and comfortable. The pictures truly do not do it justice. Attention has been paid to every detail. The least we could say is that we have not been disappointed . We will certainly return to Puerto Banus and to the same apartment if possible..
Response:
we are delighted that our guests had enjoyed their holiday. We look forward to see them or their friends back soon. We are grateful to be in a position to say that 40% of our bookings are repeats and some of them even are one year forward bookings.

An Very Enjoyable Stay
Review Submitted: February 28, 2012 Date of Stay: February 2012
We felt like home the moment we got into the house. It is nicely & cosy decorated and clean. It is well equipped. Though we visited during the snowny week which was one of the coldest Feb in UK for many years, we enjoyed out stay so much just relaxing in the conservatory with the fantastic view right by the Thames. It is close to local amenities, and Windsor where there are loads of shops and restaurants.

We are planning to book and come back again during summer.

We highly recommended Pixie Place.

Review Submitted: April 26, 2011 Date of Stay: March 2011
We had the most fabulous and memorable holiday. The communication with the owner was super efficient and every thing was clear and specific and made it a very easy way to book a holiday. The apartment was clean,spacious, fully equipped, well decorated. The gardens were magnificent with three swimming pools,with life guards in attendance., The photos and the description were exactly as expected.
Two private restaurants in the gardens served good food at reasonable prices. Superb location and all amenities are within few minutes walking distance including Marina Puerto Banus. The sandy beaches are the end of the gardens.
We would have no hesitation to recommend it to all our friends and we look forward to coming back again.

“Fantastic apartments”

The location of the apartment is fantastic, right on the beach which is great for families. A very short stroll away is the harbour with all its restaurants and bars,boats and cars,which makes for the best people watching.

The boardwalk from Marbella to San Pedro is now almost complete and makes for lovely evening walks,walking towards San Pedro where there are more traditional spanish restaurants and bars.



The apartments (we have stayed in both belonging to the owners) are equipped with everything you need and are very comfortable ( the penthouse apartment is beautiful with wonderful veiws) and the DVD players and cbeebies channels are a godsend when on holiday with a three year old.



The owners are very kind and helpful, I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

24 May 2011 “Perfect family holiday”

The apartment is splendid. It has great views to all sides thanks to massive balconies. Being so high up also makes the place feel very open, yet private. The apartment has a wonderfully unique interior, nevertheless it caters very well for families with children and it is very safe too.

The communal area of the complex is charming and consists mainly of mature garden for relaxing. The beach is only a few hundred meters away and the marina just a short walk away.

The beaches are nice, safe and sheltered from large swells and the restaurants on the beach are cosy and serve very nice seafood.

The owners are most accommodating and take very good care of their guests. The standard of service and flexibility is outstanding. We would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a special and relaxed place in the area.

Review Submitted: September 28, 2009 Date of Stay: April 2009
Three couples of us from Texas stayed at the Pixie Place after a Transatlantic Cruise last April. We were so pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. There was plenty of room for all 3 couples, albeit two of the bedrooms were a little small, but ample. The master was great!! Just be aware that there are a substantial amount of stairs in and outside of the house. If you don't have knee problems, they are fine. The kitchen was very nice and well stocked. There is a nice television (although being from the U.S., we usually have televisions in our bedrooms, which we missed.) If you are not afraid of driving on the left side of the street (which we were), it would have been very nice to have had a car. However, the taxi service is very prompt and quite reasonable. Numerous times, we walked about a mile to the main road to a small store and a wonderful Italian Restaurant. Our favorite place to eat was walking distance (about 1-1/2 miles) on the trail across the river and lock to the main street. It has great food and very reasonably priced. If you are visiting Windsor for the first time, I would highly recommend the grocery store in town unless you have a car. We found it to be very convenient getting to London by train, and then upon your return, you can catch a taxi right outside the train station to return to Pixie Place. Also, I can't say enough nice things about the owners and the couple who manage the Pixie Place for them. They are ALL so nice and helpful. They are there to please their guests -- and believe me, they do!! If I ever return to this area, I would definitely stay at Pixie Place if it is available. I like the area much better than the "rat race" of London. We enjoyed the swans on the river right in back of the house!

Owner's Response: We are happy that our guests from the USA have enjoyed their stay at Pixie Place and would like to come back again. We have put a new large second LCD TV with over hundred channels, in the master bedroom. The houses in England might be smaller than those in Texas but Pixie Place is in excess of 3000 sq feet which is above average in Europe. Pixie Place is elevated from the ground for better view of the river and the surrounding area. We welcome our guests from all over the world and assure them the very best of service

We look forward to see our guests back again soon

Review Submitted: October 4, 2009
As a large family of 6 from Australia we found this property to be very comfortable.The main bedroom is very large and beautifully decorated, the other 2 bedrooms were a little small but on English standards not to bad.The kitchen is very modern and fully equiped with every thing you could possibly need.The lounge and conservatory give you alot of living space so that you have room to relax even with 4 children.The furnishings throughout the property are of a high quality and the extra small touches of fresh flowers, books and even a christmas tree give it a very homely feeling.The heating was brilliant as we were there over christmas and not being use to the cold we really needed it.It does have a few levels of stairs which with very young chidren it may cause problems.My youngest was 5, but I dont think I would have liked to have a 2 year old in this property. The property is located in a lane of country style cottages in a country setting.The scenery is absolutly beautiful and quite surreal. But in saying this it means it is quite a walk to any shops. If you were staying for any lenght of time I would recommend maybe a rental car.We did use the taxi service which was very prompt and not to badly priced.We also used the trains into London which didnt take that long and were easy to use. The booking of the property was handled easily and fast with all questions answered with speed. We did have to wait for the return of the bond as there was a few small issues that had to be sorted out but once this was done it was deposited straight away. I found the owners to be helpful and caring.I would use this property again and are hoping to have the opportunity in the near future.

Pixie Place is part of a family orientated community of 35 homes with friendly neighbours. It is 15 minutes walk from all amenities and buses, It is about 2 miles from 5 railway stations and 30 minutes time to central London and 20 Minutes from Heathrow Airport. The area is very beautiful and exclusive, being the number one Tourist area in the UK, with many attractions, as The Queen Residence at Windsor Castle, Legoland, Horse Racing, National Parks and perfect beauty everywhere. We recommend to have a car to be able to visit and enjoy all these attractions at leisure. Taxis , very reliable come to house within 5 minutes, and charges about seven pounds to all surrounding areas and Railways Stations.

Review Submitted: November 20, 2009 Date of Stay: October 2009
We were pleasantly surprised to find our holiday house situated on the Themes. The house has a lovely teras to sit outside overlooking the river. The surroundings were beautiful. The house was clean and well maintained. It was lovely warm in the property when we arrived. The owner is available to give advise. The beds were clean and we slept well. There is not much room for the children to play in the garden but there are parks very close at Windsor and plenty of room for walks along the river.
By train from Windsor it only takes a good half hour to get to London.
It is a quite area and there are many things to do in the area. We visited Lego land which the kids enjoyed enormously.
All by all a lovely holiday and we certainly will come back again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Pixie Place has exceeded our expectation in most aspects. We were a family of six and all had a wonderful stay. The booking sequence with the owners was efficient and very informative with quick responses. The house is by the river with beautiful different shades of green just in front of us, It was relaxing feeding the swans and the ducks their breakfast. The house was clean, spacious and very well furnished and the kitchen was fully equipped. The conservatory is just the place to enjoy the views or relax with a book. The area is very well located with things to do for everyone in our family. We travelled very economically to Central London on the trains and on the buses. Windsor, beside being the residence of the Queen offers a theatre, Legoland, parks, shops, sport centres, garden and botanic gardens, international restaurants and all our needs. We have enjoyed all our 15 days we spent in Pixie Place. We look forward to return again and we do recommend it for other families.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We stayed for two weeks at Pixie Place with another couple and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The house is exactly as shown - absolutely spotless, comfortable and "homey". The kitchen is extremely well equipped - plenty of everything in the way of dishes, cutlery etc. The beds were comfortable, bedrooms a very good size. The conseravatory is absolutely fabulous - we hardly spent any time in the living room as the view from the conservatory was so beautiful. There were swans, unique ducks with their babies, boats, people walking their dogs - always something moving and catching your eye. Even when it rained we sat in that room! The flowers were lovely, the neighbours were friendly, places to eat and shop for groceries were nearby. Could not have been better. Dave and his wife who help manage this property were very helpful when we ran into a problem and had to make a call back to Canada- they were wonderful. They also have a really neat cat named Percy who is king of the little neighbourhood! This would be the place for us to stay again if we are able to come back to the Windsor area for another vacation. I would not hesitate to strongly recommend this home to anyone looking for lovely place to stay while visiting the area.

“Wonderful house and an excellent stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

We rented this house as a family of six with four children ranging from 7 to 16. We used the house as a base to visit nearby Legoland and for trips into London. In terms of location we found this house met our needs very well, although you do need a car. The house is in beautiful location and we also felt safe. The house was a luxurious home from home for us. We instantly felt at home and the house was very comfortable. The views of the Thames from the sitting room and conservatory are very relaxing and picturesque. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use for a family and we found it easy to cook and do laundry, which is very important to a family of 6 on the move. Two large televisions with sky made life very easy! The house also has excellent wiifi. Booking and arrangements were made very easy by the owners. This house helped to make our stay one of our best family trips and we would hope to stay there again in the future. Only sorry we didn't have time really to look around Windsor very much as there is a lot to see and do in the area with lots of nice restaurants. We would very strongly recommend this house, especially to a family.

From BBC Living In The Sun

Thank you for a wonderful stay. This place is paradise. From the moment you enter into the cool, tiled courtyard with glimpses of the beautiful sub-tropical gardens and glittering blue pools beyond, you just know this is going to be the best holiday ever. The apartment is very luxurious and well equipped - even down to beach towels, and more important, champagne glasses!
We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere, and loved being able to laze by the pools under the shady trees, with only a few yards walk to the lovely restaurant and bar. The sea is at the bottom of the garden, there are great shop, restaurants and bars a few minutes away, and the supermarket at Corte Ingles will deliver your groceries and drinks to the door. What more can a holidaymaker want.

Here is a review that has been submitted that has been submitted for your property Puerto Banus,Marbella,3 sunny balconies,sleeps 4/6 on booking 4523-18814 by John Egan
"Reviewing: Puerto Banus,Marbella,3 sunny balconies,sleeps 4/6 (Property Ref: 4523)

The property was well maintained and equiped added value was provided in respect of the little extra's and finishing touches. The owner had clearly gone to extra effort to make sure facilities were available for our children and this was appreciated. A minor negative was the smell of paint throughout the appartment, clearly some decoration had been done outside the main holiday season. However, this didn't detract from the overall holiday. A fine property in an excellent location."

Thank you for the use of your apartment. We had a wonderful holiday and the accommodation was fantastic. Although we tend to holiday in different locations from year to year, the next time we fancy a holiday in the Costa del Sol I hope you wont mind if I get in touch again.

I hope we left the apartment in a reasonable state.

Thanks again.

Regards,
Tony

Just to confirm Sue's and my own thoughts about the holiday
1. The email correspondance was good and prompt so the booking went easily
2. Electronic transfer of the payments was easy. An easier way of dealing with the beakages deposit/refund would have been helpful (now that we know you and your expectations this would not be a problem)
3. The apartment was as we expected, but newer furnished and greater range of equipment, with others that we have stayed in in the Puerto Banus area.
4. Access to the garage was very good.
5. The setting/location was excellent
6. We will use the apartments again
7. You and your wife were helpful and accepted telephone calls during the stay
Yes we really enjoyed our stay, one week is too short
I am happy to be contacted

Dear Nael,
We really enjoyed staying in your beautiful apartment in July. It was very clean and spacious, tastefully decorated with every up to date appliance. We loved to be able to eat on the spacious balcony in the warm evenings. It was also ideally situated in lovely grounds, with clean, well kept pools and cafes for lunches. We did appreciate being able to walk easily to the port and shops and the lovely beach and especially enjoyed the Ocean Club nearby. Although underground parking was provided, one hardly needed a car, other than to explore places further afield.

We certainly hope to stay at your apartment again next year.

Things have got a bit hectic here so unfortunately we wont be coming in November as we had previously mentioned. Best wishes to you both, David and Alex

Dear Nael and Angela,

Thank you for this. Sorry not to get back to you - we had a very late night on our last night! We had a great holiday and thought that the apartment was ideal. The location of the apartment is superb and it is lovely and spacious. We were also most impressed with the security at the complex. We hope to come back again, perhaps when it is a little busier and a bit sunnier!

Thank you for all your help.

Kind Regards,

Hi Nael,
Yes, the accomodation that you have provided me & my family was excellent & I would be struggling to think of anything that was below par during our stay. I would definitely recommend you to my friends & colleagues in the future.

Thanks again,

Hi Nael,

Thanks for the use of your apartment - my colleagues were all very complimentary on the standard of accomodation.

I left the keys in an envelope with the reception where I got them from with your name & address on.

The weather managed to stay fine - I think it got up to 33C on Tuesday!

Any how, thanks once again, I suspect our short stay wasn't ideal for you & I appreciate you finding somewhere for us to stay.

Hi Nael

Thanks for letting me know. We had an excellent stay thankyou. Too good in fact - it's made coming back to the 'autumn' British weather, even harder!

It was good to meet your wife before we left. I mentioned to her that we may be interested in an end of season/early season long weekend break. Do you rent the apartment throughout the year or just the high season summer months? It may be worth keeping us posted on your bookings for next year, because if you have some mid week bookings that mean the apartment is empty at any time over a weekend, we might be interested in filling it. Something
to think about.

Anyway, thanks again.

Mark

Hi nael and Angela,

We had the most brilliant time on holidays. Your apartment was absolutely gorgeous, we didn't leave the grounds of the apartment at all during the day it was so tranquil and plenty for the lads to do between the pool and fishing in the pond. They loved the night time when we would come back after eating out they would catch frogs. The best holiday we ever had!! So secure. We will definitely be booking again with you

Hope you are enjoying the sun there as it is raining non stop since we came back.

Again thankyou.

Hi Nael,
Just to let you know we had a fantastic time in your apartment. We had some great weather and just loved sitting out on the balcony eating our breakfast. It is a beautiful apartment and excellent gardens! The only problem there was which was minor was the pipe attaching the water to the shower and tap is leaking think it just needs tightened. We hope to be able to return again same time next year and will be in touch.

Dear Angela and Nael,

We arrived back in the U.K. late last night - just wanted to say thank you for renting your lovely apartment to us. We had a lovely holiday. Didn't actually spend that much time at the complex (so much for using the gym and having those treatments!) - too many family members to visit! But we were so lucky with the weather - just amazing sunshine the whole time.

Thank you again.

Hi Nael – your condo was wonderful, and Puerto Banus was absolutely beautiful. Everyone was so helpful and friendly; I can’t wait to return with my family to visit.

One issue with the condo that might need to be checked out is the outlet in the guest bathroom and the outlet in the guest bedroom where the lamp is plugged in. Both seem to overheat. I used an adapter for my phone charger, and when I plugged it in I saw a spark and my charger quit working. The lamp still works, so perhaps your voltage is too much for my adapter to handle. Other than that, everything worked great. Thank you so much for all the help you gave me regarding taxi / bus / etc. info in your emails.
Again, thanks so much for everything. Marsha

We enjoyed our stay at your condo. It was in a nice area, close to the beach, and in walking distance to the port and all the activities. It was very comfortable and your directions from the airport to the condo were excellent. However, it would have been nice to have a few necessities at the condo when we arrived, especially after our long flight and the hour drive from Malaga. Items like coffee, tea, salt, pepper, and paper towels.
Again, we really enjoyed our stay

we are back home after a fantastic vacation in Marbella. We really enjoyed your wonderful appartment and would for sure like to come back next year, maybe for 2 weeks at that time. If ok, i will contact you at a later stage to book the appartment again.

I have washed the beach towels and placed them in the dryer before we left, i did however turn the dryer off when we left the appartment, so its proably a good idea to just start the dryer again
Thanks again for renting out your lovely appartment.

The apartment is excellent and the location perfect. We thought it was close to the centre but didn't realise it was almost in the main shopping area. Anyway everything is close by.

My sister lives in Los Pinos which is 5 minutes from here. My parents and my brother and his family are joining us all to celebrate New Year. They are all staying at Los Pinos but I expect we will all meet tomorrow.

We just wanted to again let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation in Puerto Banus and much of that enjoyment was certainly a result of our selection to stay in your penthouse apartment. The grounds were spotless, the view of both the Mediterranean and the mountains were breathtaking and the location was superb.

Although we have plans to see other places in Europe , I think there is a very good chance we’ll be back sometime.
All the best to both of you.
