The prime real estate value of Puerto Banus
The Golden Mile, Sierra Blanca, La Zagaleta and Los Monteros may rank as the top addresses in Marbella, but Puerto Banus is right up there with them in terms of desirability – and property values.
Marbella is a luxury resort town richly endowed with exclusive residential zones that each offer something very special. The Golden Mile offers a millionaire’s row of fantastic frontline beach villas between Marbella and Puerto Banus that draws on the glamour and six-star services of the Marbella Club and Puente Romano hotels. Los Monteros also has the distinction of having luxurious beachfront villas for sale on spacious private plots, while La Zagaleta is the place to look for a country club villa lifestyle in Marbella.
Whether you prefer a beachside property or a villa overlooking golf in Marbella, there is a choice of fine homes available in highly select, attractive areas suited to your style and personal preferences. You may be a little surprised to find that Puerto Banus also falls within this category, for the luxury marina is known above all for its super-yachts, designer label shopping, trendy beach clubs, restaurants and nightlife.
Two sides to Puerto Banús
However, there are two sides to Puerto Banus. One is the area surrounding the yacht harbour, in which the above mentioned amenities are concentrated, and the other is an exclusive residential zone that extends just west of here along the Mediterranean shore. Where central Puerto Banus is the beating heart of Marbella’s cosmopolitan social life, the rather more private and leafy streets of residential Puerto Banus offer luxury villas and beachfront apartments that are close to all the excitement of the port yet peaceful and secure within their own immediate setting.
The villas and penthouses for sale in Puerto Banus west either look straight out upon the beach amid magnificent sea views or they are within easy walking distance to it. Little traffic passes through this area, where you’re a minute or two away from the coastal road but also have kilometres of seaside walkways to stroll, cycle or jog along, or indeed enjoy beachfront café society. It’s a highly desired area with some of the most attractive villas, apartments and penthouses for sale in Puerto Banus, let alone Marbella – and properties here are snapped up quickly and command premium prices for a premium Marbella seafront location.
The same is true of central Puerto Banus, where luxury apartments and penthouses set within lush subtropical gardens enjoy fantastic Mediterranean sea views to Gibraltar. The fact that they are within walking distance of some of Marbella’s best shopping, dining, beaches and nightlife makes them highly prized among those who come here for stylish summer fun. Features such as on-site facilities such as indoor spas, 24-hour security, concierge, covered parking and gyms merely add to square metre prices that are among the very highest in Marbella – making Puerto Banus one of the region’s top-performing residential submarkets in terms of demand and real estate values.
