“Amazing Villa & Great Holiday”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

From a view of 11 21 year olds this was perfect. The villa was amazing, it had everything that we needed/wanted. The villa was presented in fantastic condition. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The outside area where we spent a lot of our time was perfect, more than enough room, with great sea views. In terms of getting around, we found it hard, because we had to get 3 taxis everywhere and as they don't speak very good English they couldn't really understand us. However, once calling through about 30-40 times on occasion, we got through and could get about. The walk up and down to the supermarket isn't too bad, although a car is recommended!! The nightlife is good, however very expensive, although you have to expect that. Taxis are very reasonable. Andy was always on call for anything that we needed and can't thank you enough for the amazing villa and great stay!

“Great service, well equipped and lovely location”

We stayed here as part of our family holiday - 3 couples and 2 children. Andrew was very accommodating meeting us later than expected due to flight delays and helping us get to know the area while waiting for us to get shopping before closing time.

The villa itself was lovely, very well equipped - plenty of crockery, cutlery, glassware and utensils for cooking. Along with dishwasher, great hob and oven and we used the washing machine. Loads of space around the villa to get your own peace and quiet too and not feel under each other's feet and with good communal space for eating together including a BBQ. Gardens and pool lovely with plenty of sun beds, shady areas and beach towels. Having blinds on the windows helped keep the rooms cool as well.

Villa was also very secure, alarmed and behind secure gates, in a great location, a nice urbanisation with access to Malaga, Fuengirola and Marbella very easy. I would say its best to have a car though as the walk up the hill from the main bus stop and local shop would be tricky with lots of things to carry and the heat! Shop in Calahonda Lidl or Mercadona or SuperCor in Elviria.

The beach at Las Chapas exit was good too quieter than Cabopino and the Rama restaurant fantastic as well as recommending Alberts or Da Brunos in Cabopino.

I think one of the best things we found was how quiet it was. Not overlooked at all and a very peaceful area with a fab view of the sea.

Also make sure you have some euro coin change for the aircon if going in high temperature season.

Overall very impressed and would happily return again. Thank you.

“Almost perfect ...”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

person found this review helpful

We were a party of six adults and two children aged 4 years and 11 months. We found the villa facilities very good although were mildly disappointed to find some minor snagging issues, eg the oven door handle was broken and the kitchen tap was very wobbly although usable.

The beds were all comfortable although the bed linen was thin and old and did not fit the bed very well in the Master Room.

Although all the floors 'appeared' clean, we soon discovered that they had in fact only been swept or vacuumed and had not been washed as we all had very dirty feet the first morning. It took me almost an hour to mop the downstairs floors, which was something I had not planned to do on my holiday!

As a tip for other travellers, just be aware that parking with two cars is tight in the driveway but perfectly doable. Oh and the electronic gate 'key' was very temperamental.

Overall however, we found Villa Melanie very pleasant and we never really wanted for anything during our visit.

Liked best: The peace and quiet with a perfect size pool for keeping cool.
Liked least: The decor is tired and the shower cubicles could do with re-tiling/re-grouting as they do not feel or look clean although I'm sure they were.

I am very disapointed to read your comments, I can assure others the Villa is always cleaned to a high standard for all clients arriving, even after mopping floors in Spain your feet will always get dirty as its a very dry Country I am sure you are not in the habit of walking around in the UK in bare feet.... the oven is only weeks old so I am surprised to hear the door was broken... I will however look into this and the other small negatives you have listed!

“A very comfortable and well equipt villa for families and groups of friends”
Reviewed 26 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The entrance and residential area this villa is situated in is very impressive, however you will need a car. Puerto Banus is approximately 20 minutes away and Marbella town is 15 minutes- by car. All rooms and bedrooms are very large, and the garden is kitted out with BBQ, comfie seating and eating areas, as well as loungers. We made use of the sky box, and there was even a DVD player and sound system. The wifi wasn't working unfortunately but this gave is a great excuse to relax. Great size pool too.

We are happy all went well for your party and you all loved the Villa, it should be stated the WIFI modem never worked for 2 of the 7 days of your visit, mostly clients dont have any problems with the WIFI.... it will be nice to see your group retuning in the future. Rgds Andy

“The setting for a truly memorable holiday”
Reviewed 14 September 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have rented villas abroad for many years and our experience at Villa Melanie was a wonderful one. The house was very well equipped and immaculately presented. The garden was secluded and the pool, which we had heated (at the end of May) was at a temperature which was a delight to step into. Our grandchildren were 8,5 and 2 . Andy gave us the confidence to be assured that should there be any problem whatsoever (which there wasn't) he would only be a phone call away.. The photographs don't do justice to the beautiful outside dining and lounging areas with views of the Mediterranean. For a memorable family holiday in beautiful surroundings we can recommend Villa Melanie unreservedly.
