If you pass through under the bridge by the Dali Rhino keep going past the roundabout, when you come to the second roundabout and look left, you will see the urbanisation of La Alzambra. Built by the luxury developer, Vasari this collection of complexes offers a good standard of accomodation within close proximity to Puerto Banus.
On your immediate right after the security gate you have phase 2, then phase 1 after the road turning right and finally phase 3. The 1st phase offers spacious properties, with slightly older qualities, the 2nd phase, better than the 1st and finally the 3rd and best apartments.
You may be able to find a rental in the oldest phase with 2 bedrooms for around the €1300 mark, than will increase by increments of 15%-20% in the subsequent phases. The gardens within the final phase are exceptional and there are also 2 villas within the grounds, although I have never seen them come up for rental.
The are also townhouses in Alzambra for long term rental again offering decent qualities and plenty of space.
La Alzambra Villas
On the left hand side after the security office you also have some Alzambra villas for long term rental, many have pools
and good size gardens (approx 800m2), some of which have 7 bedrooms and a basement area.
