Living in Nueva Andalucia
Nueva Andalucia is one of the Costa del Sol’s most popular residential areas. This is due to its location, about midway along the coast, and the fact that it lies in the foothills of La Concha mountain, providing its residents with spectacular views of both this landmark and the Mediterranean Sea.
Furthermore, parts of Nueva Andalucia are a mere few minutes walk from the famous marina of Puerto Banús, and central Marbella is only a 10-minute drive away, as is neighbouring San Pedro de Alcántara. Essentially, it is an ideal area for all age groups, because of its infrastructure and its proximity to a wealth of sports and leisure activities, as well as beaches. This all makes it very appealing to property buyers who want easy access to amenities but be located somewhere with stunning scenery.

We were more than happy with the services received from Aqua Estate. Sebastian had all the patience in the world, showing us some twenty properties, never being disappointed when we said no again and happy to come up with more properties to show. Most importantly , he presented us those which were within our price range, not wasting our time with more expensive ones, as so many agents do. Besides his positive attitude, his knowledge and advice were invaluable. Even after the deal was done, he continued to help us with various matters. Last but not least, the entire team of Aqua Estate shows the same high level of dedication. Why would anybody choose a different agent in Marbella ?
We highly recommend Sebastian Jimenez and his agency Aqua Estates. Sebastian is extremely kind and patient, no query, no task is too much for him at any time. Moreover, he is very efficient, helpful and understanding, even if we wanted to inspect a property for the third time, only to continue the search. Sebastian never imposes with his own taste or opinion, however convinces with his professional and local market knowledge. House hunting with Sebastian was a real pleasure and a successful one too as we just moved in with his help into a fantastic apartment on the coast. AND after sales assistance is not only a promotional promise, but was happily offered.
Hello Sebastian, it is with pleasure that we, my wife and I, testify to your professionalism and your attention regarding the purchase of our first property in Spain 4 and a half years ago and of our new house in which we will be moving in October 2021. We have found in you, listening, competence and besides that is why we have remained faithful to you for 5 years, and that we have recommended you to all our friends.
I’ve been with Aqua Estates for 12 years, and have bought and sold various properties with them but I’ll make it short: I wouldn’t even think of using someone else.
