Casa Capitan definitely has the wow factor! It has been sensationally refurbished and is now a top-notch, stunning holiday villa with six bedrooms, fabulous living spaces and gorgeous outside space. The villa enjoys a prestigious location on the exclusive urbanisation of Puerto Del Capitan, just a few minutes drive from Benahavis, Marbella and Puerto Banus. It is private, spacious and beautifully designed. Casa Capitan looks grand and inviting. Its architecture incorporates touches of characterful Andalusian essence which belies the trendy, chic, part Scandinavian, part industrial furnishings inside. Think ultra cool, think handpicked, forget traditional wardrobes, think trendy freestanding clothing rails, think striking black framed everything. This villa oozes style and luxury. Its complete refurbishment is of the highest luxurious standards with inspired decor, glass features, Italian porcelain terraces, a fabulous garden and a new swimming pool.
The secure community of Puerto Del Capitan is surrounded by prestigious golf courses including Los Arqueros, La Quinta, El Higueral, Guadalmina and Los Naranjos. Just around the corner, Benahavis boasts many high class restaurants scattered along the narrow, winding streets. It is very picturesque, reached through the Rio Guadalmina gorge up into the hills. Close by, La Aldea is almost a village within a village, the brainchild of the British sculptor David Marshall. His gallery is one of La Aldea’s main features, along with the marble fountains, antiques and old-fashioned doors and grilles. Within minutes, guests of Casa Capitan can be relaxing on the Costa del Sol’s sunkissed beaches or living it up in the celebrity hotspots of Puerto Banus and Marbella.
The magnificent Casa Capitan is built over three levels with living space and bedrooms on the lower level together with the gardens and pool, the kitchen diner with a small living space on the first floor and the other bedrooms scattered between the first and second floors. Guests with bedrooms on the ground floor have the luxury of opening their trendy doors and taking early morning swims or enjoying a morning cup of coffee on the terrace. The pool is wonderful and is surrounded by a lush lawn, gardens and the terrace. The loungers and parasols are of the best quality, beautiful to complement the pool and terrace. Alfresco dining can be taken on the terrace or above on the spacious first floor balcony. The villa enjoys a large recreational lawn and stunning tropical gardens, a beautiful arrangement of landscaped design. There is a very special illumination system which makes the whole villa look truly spectacular at night. Gym enthusiasts will be delighted to find some equipment.
With a minimalist design, its Scandinavian and industrial touches and fantastic use of glass, the interiors are stunning. The lower living space features sumptuous cream sofas adorned with black scatter cushions, the ideal place to chill. Above, the chef’s dream of a kitchen is very striking in black to match the door and window frames and with a dazzling white worktop. The appliances, including a wine fridge, are fantastic. Dinner can be enjoyed inside or outside on the balcony. Two trendy chairs sit in front of another television and a feature fire. The spacious balcony enjoys luxurious lounge furniture as well as its alfresco dining and a barbecue. Throughout the villa, you will find striking black and white tones and warm woods.
The bedrooms are gorgeous havens, all with kingsize beds, terrace or balcony access and immaculate bathrooms to use. Each has its own special touches from macrame wall hangings to handmade wooden furnishings, all beautiful and stylish. There will not be any arguements about bedrooms here, they are all stunning!
Casa Capitan is very special and will ensure you leave with wonderful memories. You are in for a treat.
