We are a family of 5, living in the beautiful area of Benahavis, in the Costa del Sol. Our home is surrounded by trees and we enjoy amazing views of the coastline and mountains. We have two dogs, Mac, an 11 year old Golden Retriever and Kala, a 7 year old Westie, and Roxie, our nomad turtle. Currently, our 2 oldest sons study abroad, so the house is pretty quiet.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are a Spanish/American family, fluent in both languages. We have been living in the area over 15 yrs and are great hosts. Andalucía is an amazing region. Málaga has so much to offer, both culturally (many things, towns to visit) as well as nature sites. My husband and I are both active and willing to serve as guides for surrounding areas, hikes, walks. He is an avid biker/hiker/swimmer (and many other activities) and is always happy to take people out exercising in nature.
What help do we appreciate? It´s a big house, and there is always something to move, fix, order... We have a small vegetable garden which appreciates able and loving hands. Our dogs enjoy going for short walks nearby. We eat clean, healthy diet and are always happy to enjoy a nicely cooked vegetarian (me) meal prepared by our guests
Depending on time of year, we have up to 3 rooms. All with King size beds and private bathroom, wardrobes and natural light, and beautiful views. One has small kitchenette.
There is A LOT to do nearby, as Marbella is a very touristic site with a broad activity offering. We live 5 minutes by car from closest town of San Pedro. There is no public transport other than taxi (about 10€).
