This is a guide to the best Airbnbs in Marbella, Spain- it will include options for multiple budgets and travel tastes.
Marbella is such an ideal weekend break in Spain, but it also hits well with those looking to spend a couple of weeks in a place. Airbnbs can help one stay on a tighter budget and cook instead of spending all the money out at restaurants.
Our guide to the best Airbnbs in Marbella, Spain will give you our top picks for an amazing trip to one of Spain’s most beloved beachside cities.
Should You Stay at a Marbella Airbnb?
Spain is known for being an epic food destination, and rightfully so! But, eating multiple meals out can put a damper on a trip as it will require so much spending on food and leaving you depleted for money to spend on activities and fun nights out.
While Spain is known for its amazing food at restaurants, it also provides those living and traveling there with top-notch ingredients at the local markets and shops. Renting an Airbnb in Marbella can give you the opportunity to take advantage of these flavorful ingredients!
In addition, hotel rooms can be cramped and limited in space. Marbella Airbnb options that we selected have additional space so your entire family or group can stay in one space as opposed to renting multiple rooms as a resort or hotel.
Several properties in Marbella have the same amenities as hotels. You will find many rental complexes where these Airbnbs are located boasting their own pools and gyms, etc. It will make for a relaxing holiday and the perfect time to unwind from everyday life.
