“Perfect Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 26 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

This is the second time that my 22 year old granddaughter and I stayed in Ray and David's apartment. We stayed there for a month two years ago and had such a fantastic experience that we wanted to stay there again. The experience at the apartment made us want to come back to Marbella!

This time we stayed from mid-November through mid-December, and the apartment was even better than we remembered. The owners, Ray and David, continue to improve it with new furniture and fresh paint. It was spotlessly clean, and Ray and David couldn't be more hospitable - always ready to provide whatever information we needed.

The location of the apartment is perfect, the owners attitudes is perfect, and Marbella is perfect, which makes for a very special experience. I wouldn't stay anywhere else, and I look forward to returning to our "home away from home."

“A little Gem in the heart of Marbella Old Town”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

What a lovely Town House in the heart of Marbella Old Town. Accommodation was superb, clean, spacious, well decorated and furnished. We spent a wonderful week there with ideal weather. Plenty of eating places and bars all within walking distance.
Thank you Rachel for the warm welcome.

“Perfect Holiday Home”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

What a great apartment!! Superb position 5 walk minutes from the beach yet in a quiet residential street on the edge of the Old Town. The apartment has everything you need for your stay and Rachel very kindly provided a welcome pack of food. The apartment is very well equipped with hair driers, iron, washing machine, dishwasher, coffee machine etc and enough utensils to cook a meal if necessary. There is a very small enclosed sitting area with the washing machine and drying facilities. The wifi is excellent but we were unable to find any English TV channels which to be fair was no problem for us!! There are many restaurants and bars in the Old Town and on the Paseo Maritimo and plenty of shops nearby. If you bring a car I would recommend parking across the main road in the Avenida del Mar car park as the car park just by the apartment is ridiculously expensive. It is possible to buy a weekly ticket for the Avenida car park- take your passport and allow plenty of time!!
To summarise, we really enjoyed the apartment and the location is perfect. We would definitely stay here again.

Many thanks for your review. I am sorry you did not manage to find the English channels, I should have explained it better. There are 28 English channels.
I think I need to put some written instructions in the apartment so that no one else has that problem.

“Excellent apartment near the Old Town of Marbella”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment was really great, well fitted, very clean, it has everything you want including airco and any household utensil you can think of. It even has a nice, small patio.
Nice to have towels for the beach and there was even a ‘parasol’ for the beach.

The apartment is perfectly located in a quiet street with lots of shadow, a 5 minutes walk to the beach and the shopping center in the Old Town. Just around the corner there are lovely bars and restaurants where we had breakfast every morning (eating churros).

Remarkable is the contact with the owner. When I mailed her before our holiday, I noticed that she answered my mails within a day. She gave good parking advice (parking In Marbella is not funny...).

In short: we are very satisfied. When we go back to Marbella we will certainly check he availability of this apartment.
