Casa Victoria far exceeded all our expectations for our 2 week stay in August 2019. The Villa was exceptionally clean and there are many small touches that the owner has made that make it feel like home from home. The kitchen was very well equipped with plenty of plates, mugs, glasses, cutlery and cookware for the 9 of us. The decor in each of the bedrooms was individual and welcoming. There is ample seating & eating areas in and around the villa & grounds with the added benefit of plenty of opportunity for shade. The swimming pool was a huge hit with all ages and is cleaned every day. There are ample sun loungers and beach towels to use as well as play equipment & toys for children (& adults).
There is a washing machine, tumble dryer, iron & ironing board in the villa to use and air conditioning throughout. The outside bar provides an additional area to store and prepare food & drink next to the BBQ area.
The owner, Victoria, was very helpful and welcoming and shared fruit and eggs with us during our stay as well as offering advice regarding the local area and facilities.
There is a 15 minute drive down to Marbella & Puerto Banus where you will find supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars and lovely beaches. The villa is about 1km from the village of Istan which has a small selection of bars/restaurants serving typical spanish food, a bakery, small convenience store & bank. It takes approximately 15 minutes to walk into Istan, although I would recommend using a torch/phone if you are returning to the villa in the dark.
Overall, Casa Victoria provides an excellent base for exploring this area of Spain. The villa is of a very high standard in terms of cleanliness and facilities and I would certainly recommend it as a holiday base.
Gracias Victoria por toda su ayuda y amabilidad durante nuestras vacaciones en su encantadora villa.
