This totally unique, spacious estate is located in the beautiful village of Benahavis. Literally a few minutes’ walk into this charming white village, this cortijo-style property is a tranquil haven away from the bustle of the pueblo.
Within easy reach of prestigious golf courses, beaches and with Puerto Banús just a 10 minute drive away, this beautiful finca is a private haven – the quintessence of the Andalusian dream home.
The property comprises 17.000 sq. metres (4 acres) of naturally landscaped land blending beautifully with the countrified setting and rolling hills beyond. Complete with all amenities, two large buildings and various outbuildings – the main house covers approx. 300 m2 built.
You approach the house via a long, sweeping, tree-lined driveway, and a forecourt to accommodate several cars. Designed by an artist, the house itself incorporates many unique features including stunning wooden doors gleaned from all corners of the globe. Created in traditional andalusian style, the house features stunning terracotta tiled flooring throughout, wooden-beamed ceilings, a farmhouse style kitchen and wooden shutters.
With 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, the Master bedroom has a bathroom en-suite, and the rooms from the upper floor all look out onto the beautiful surrounding countryside. On a further floor, there is a sizeable room which could be another bedroom, studio or leisure room.
The cortijo is surrounded by magnificent gardens populated with mature trees, a shaded patio and large pool with an area of sunshade. The other building was formerly a sculpture studio with squash court of almost 400 sq. meters and was designed for easy conversion into a 4/5 bedroom house.
While adjacent to the village and private, the new 2019 Benahavis town plan contemplates the possibility of developing the property more fully.
The municipality of Benahavis is one of the most affluent communities on the Costa del Sol, comprising the traditional white village – famous for its restaurants , La Zagaleta private estate and a host of beautiful properties and developments stretching into the rolling hillside just inland from the coast. Only a few minutes drive to the Coast, Benahavis is close to Guadalmina, San Pedro de Alcantara and Puerto Banús.
Best Management Agent Ive ever used!
I contacted Maya last year as I wanted to start doing short term rentals on my apartments in Banus. She was super responsive and helpful with everything we needed.
Maya managed the refurb, furniture, licences, photos etc and was easy to work with and didn't overcharge for anything.
If you're looking for an agency to manage short term rentals in Marbella, you should defo use Maya!
Shame she's not in London.... we need her here!
purchased an investment property in Manilva in 2018 but the property manager that I was referred to by my buyer’s agent was not working out at all - no initiative to get my property rent-ready, she even told me after taking my property that it was too far for her to go there regularly! Thankfully, another owner in my complex gave me Maya’s contact info - the difference in service was like night & day. I live in USA so having a good property manager is absolutely crucial. Maya helped to get my house ready - furnishing bathrooms, landscaping, lighting, repairs, etc. and found a long-term tenant for me in good time; and her communication with me has always been great, quick replies. Maya’s working style is direct - which is what I prefer. She is very professional, hard-working, and looks for her client’s best interest. Thank you Maya!
We have been very happy with Maya’s professional expertise.
She manages our rental apartment and we rely on her not only to warmly communicate with and greet our guests; but also to quickly and efficiently handle surprises (such as discovering and arranging all the work to repair a major leak in our plumbing; and quickly handling the replacement of a dishwasher that stopped working).
But before our first rental- Maya was a lifesaver who helped us bring an outdated apartment up to a high standard. She efficiently managed a remodel of every room - working with me on design choices, hiring contractors, managing schedule and budget, problem solving utilities and HOA issues while keeping me in the loop every step of the way.
She guided us through every step of the process in bringing this apartment online as a successful rental. She was our boots on the ground as we live outside the country. She earned our confidence and trust quickly through her honest appraisal and input on the rental housing market. We trusted her implicitly and she delivered.
We highly recommend her for all the above services.
Maya has been a source of solutions for us and the property we bought last year in Marbella. We wanted to refurbish our villa ? Maya not only came with great ideas but also with the best addresses to buy from and the professional craftsmen to implement them, while always keeping a close eye on the budget. We needed someone to look after the property as if it was her own ? Maya has demonstrated her attention for details that count for us. We needed someone to rent it out ? Covid-19 broke out in the meantime... but Maya already impressed us with her very professional approach on how to succeed as soon as time comes back. In 3 words ? Professional, reliable and creative. What else ? 😃
We live in the states and own a La Duquesa penthouse near Manilva, Spain which we so enjoy as our vacation home.
One thing we desperately needed was a property manager who could update/refresh our unit as well as manage short-term rentals.
In looking for a suitable property manager, Maya Kandrova came highly recommended from a trusted business associate in Marbella.
Not only did Maya give us guidance on renovations, she hired suitable contractors to get the work done quickly and at a reasonable price. She has done everything she said she’d do and stayed within budget.
During our last visit, we’d seen the changes that she made and were very pleased as it was a very positive change to its previous state. Having continued her work, we cannot wait to see the fresh look that she continues to provide in our unit.
Despite the current challenges in Spain, she has continued to update the interior of our unit in preparation for future bookings.
Maya is a true professional who we have come to trust.
