Your Premier Real Estate Agency in Marbella
Miguel works for Securitas Direct and he installed my alarm and before me, many friends of mine had alarms installed by him. Reliable, and quick to respond, and for those who don’t speak Spanish, he also speaks English!
Triple A is a fantastic nonprofit rescue shelter for homeless and abandoned animals. Costa del Sol is full of animals that need shelter and the local authorities do little about this issue.
Thanks to Triple A many animals get a second chance at life. Please contact them if you want a cat or dog and maybe you can also help them with dog walks or transport foist pets to their new families in Germany, Sweden, or Finland when you anyway are going back home from Costa del Sol. It is a very simple and fantastic way to help out.
Nikki Beach Marbella opened in 2003 and is located on one of the finest white sandy beaches in Spain. The beach club is comprised of a swimming pool with sun beds on a raised deck, a large open-air restaurant, a centrally located octagon-shaped bar, a Lifestyle boutique, and a terrace with spectacular views of the Sea. A Restaurant & Beach Club famous for Champagne tastings, opulent lunches, daytime dancing, signature White opening parties, and Red closing parties. I would also like to add that they are generously hosting my annual Maiti Nepal charity gala on a non-profit basis which for me makes them stand out from any other club or restaurant on the Costa del Sol.
Pedros Beach opened in 1978 so I remember it from the very first visit to Marbella with my parents. It is my preferred chill-out place where I can bring Karlsson and just recharge my batteries. Nice ambiance and, most of the time, quiet and relaxing. I normally would order a nice salad down and eat by my subbed but sometimes I also go to the neighboring restaurant Los Espigones for the best paella on the coast.
Marbella Rent a Bike
Marbella Rent a Bike – the owners of this shop are my good friends but the reason I recommend Marbella Rent a Bike, is because loads of my clients have used them and they all have given me positive feedback! MRB has high-end bikes which they deliver home or you can go to their shop where they also do bike sales and repairs and have clothing and nutrition for sale. They have been on the coast since 2008 and are the number one bike rental here in Marbella and the only ones who do guided rides and training with a fully qualified UCI trainer.
Bellasol awnings and blinds in San Pedro de Alcantara have been on the coast for many years and they are one of the few companies in their field that have proven to me that they are efficient and competitively priced at the same time as doing a great job. Not only do they deal with the traditional awnings to keep the sun out or to protect your home but they also do PVC windows for energy saving and various double glazing windows as well as glass curtains for your terrace. When I wanted to make my blinds wind-sensitive to avoid it breaking, Vasile came and installed a wind sensor that works superbly. Vasile Bota, the owner speaks both Spanish and English and is very helpful so just give him a call.
Promas Construction and Design
As I am in the real estate business I have seen many good and bad building sites and renovation jobs over the years. This is probably one of the sectors on the coast where you will find the most amount of cowboys. Construction is very important and is also something that can turn out extremely expensive if not done properly from the start. Since I came in contact with Promas Construction, I have never had to worry about unhappy clients and bad work. They are extremely professional and always on time, which is highly unusual here. I have seen building jobs having years of delays. They have been on the coast for over 15 years and have everything from designers, architects, and builders in-house and specialize in bespoke residential re-modeling, home extensions, and swimming pool construction which require workmanship and attention to detail to the highest standard. They are fully insured and qualified in every field of expertise which gives me peace of mind when I recommend them to you. Another great thing is that they offer 3D renders, AutoCAD drawings, and 3D videos and send you weekly updates on the progress of your home during the construction or refurbishment. I am also very proud to say that they are one of the companies that yearly give a donation to the charity Maiti Nepal and support the annual Nikki Beach gala in the fight against human trafficking.
Gunnel’s Fashion is my absolute favourite boutique and luckily located just around the corner from my home, at Centro Plaza shopping center in Nueva Andalucia. Gunnel Bergman has such a great eye for trends and she has that gift that she can pick out the things that suit each individual customer´s style and body shape. She always finds me things that fit perfectly when I try them on! Her shop has a unique mix from every corner of the world of fashion. Both, my mum and my sister can shop in the same boutique even though we have very different styles. Gunnel travels to fashion fairs and hand-picks most of her fashion items and has many different brands like Mou, Please, Wildfox, Cosabella, Berenice, Busnel, Caroline Svedbom, Samsoe&Samsoe, and many more.

They make you feel completely confident about your dental choices and dental issues before even starting your dental treatment. With the help of the latest knowledge and technology, they are able to show you the results before even starting your treatment and giving you the most comfortable dental treatment possible.

I got it in my favourite color; pink 🙂 Behind Nordic Dental Centre is a professional team of four dentists, each one with their specialty, one dental hygienist, and dental assistants. Valentina is their receptionist who will take your call and answer your emails as soon as possible. They speak English, Spanish, and Swedish.

One of my passions is fitness and bodybuilding and in 2018, I stood on stage competing in bikini fitness. This means that I spend a lot of time at the gym. I have for the last 4 years been going to Panatta Gym in San Pedro de Alcántara. Most gyms are in a basement or dark spaces while Panatta is upstairs in a bright and nice local full of windows where I have spent many mornings training to the sunrise. Another important thing is their opening hours. Most gyms in the south of Spain open at 8 am, which for a businesswoman is way too late. Panatta opens at 6 am on weekdays and they stay open all day until midnight for those who like to train in the evening instead of course they are open both Saturdays and Sundays. They have a large gym area and also boxing hall and an aerobic studio. Easy parking.

Her business has grown over the years but she always keeps the personal touch and keeps in touch with every client to make sure everyone is content. Everyone I have recommended her to has been over the moon with the service she has given them. Many of my clients are in a different country and this makes chasing furniture more complicated. They have told me that Andrea send them very clear plans with photos and specifications so it has been such a pleasure to decorate their home

A good friend of mine recommended me to Sandra at Saga Salud in Estepona. She did a thorough check and assessment of my shoulder and then started to work on healing with acupuncture, fusion, and other type of treatments.

Clinica Veterinario Diana
Lucia is the most caring and professional vet on the coast by far. She has a small practice in Diana Park commercial center just after the turn-off to Benahavis. I started using her already for my dog Davidson over 10 years ago and towards the end of his life, he suffered several health problems that she dealt with impeccably. When he needed a neurologist at one point she sent me to one that was equally great and he recovered. I like the fact that she never has you do 100 unnecessary exams just to make money out of you when you are the most vulnerable with your loving pet ill. She is honest and caring and always guides you through each procedure and why it is needed. I now again use her for my little Lillebror (dog) of course hope we will not need to go very often but I am grateful to know that if he needs it, she is always there to help.
