  • "His advice ultimately saved me from making a costly mistake with a reform project"

    My dealings were mostly with John at Eco Vida Homes. Dealing with John was simple and straightforward – his advice ultimately saved me from making a costly mistake with a reform project. I appreciated his transparency with bringing up issues that would have been in his interest to hide. We will keep him on the contact list for the future too

  • Extraordinary degree of attention

    We found that Domingo as an architect gave extraordinary degree of attention to every aspect of the project supervision. John responded to any questions or concerns that we had during the process and also was extremally helpful in making very structured evaluation of the properties and plots for the second project that we had in mind. The rest of the team -Alba, Ivan, Alzae construction workers –showed high degree of professional loyalty, responsibility and quality in their work for our projects. Our positive overall experience with the first project that we have completed with Eco Vida team motivated us for our second project currently in implementation.


  • No nonsense approach and really honest answers

    When we were looking for a plot in region Marbella we found Eco Vida Homes during our web search and contacted them. In John and Domingo we found good partners to ask our questions. We loved their no nonsense approach and really honest answers and estimations. Professionalism at the best! Highly recommend them to anyone with building plans.

  • Takes pride in their profession

    I have been engaged with Luis and John in a villa project. I am finding them very professional. They are changing the way of building homes in Spain, the concept is one single point of contact, one contact which you can trust and who is very dedicated and takes pride in their profession. I will have no doubts in using them again. I have dealt with many companies in Spain and there is a big gap between companies with this quality level. Thank you. Kind regards Henrik, Costa Blanca.


  • Always making us feel incredibly comfortable

    We have loved working with the two of you. John, you were our first sense of realism when it came to Marbella property, helping us cut through a load of cr*p that others were spouting, never at all too salesy and always making us feel incredibly comfortable throughout the process. Domingo, you have been a total pleasure. By far and away our most favourite Spanish person in the whole of Marbella. Ellie actually wanted to call our house ‘Villa Domingo’ to pay homage to you, when we were getting a little excited and discussing names after having the offer accepted on the previous plot.

  • Sincere, trustworthy, detail-oriented

    When I first contacted John I wanted someone to enable the process, and put me at ease throughout the purchase. I could not have found a more sincere, trustworthy, detail-oriented, or personable professional to help me. I will definitely engage John's services over the coming years as I build my dream home. I can absolutely recommend John and his team as consummate professionals, with whom you can have every confidence. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone better!

  • Proactive approach

    A big advantage of EcoVida Homes was the proactive approach from the beginning by following up quickly on our request, answering some of our doubts, coming round to visit the property quickly, and really showing like they wanted to do the job. Also, professional approach, experience in Spain, and your people give us additional comfort we were working with the right company. We are very happy with the refurbishment and now have our perfect home in paradise re-designed the way we wanted it. People that visit us are always impressed with it. A great job by EcoVida Homes!

  • Hugely helpful and a pleasure to deal with

    Both John and Domingo of Eco Vida Homes have been incredibly helpful in assessing potential building plots and completed property for purchase. We have worked with architects in the past where creative instincts have got the better of the budgets set. With John and Domingo they were very clear upfront about what's deliverable from a given budget. Indeed, blending the architectural services with quantity surveying should be how everybody works and its precisely what we needed to compare the cost of a new build with an existing property, in order that we could plan. Based on our experience to date, I would not hesitate to recommend Eco Vida. They have been hugely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks very much indeed chaps.

  • A Code of Ethics Old School and Rare

    "Domingo is very competitive and honest with his pricing. Where many builders or suppliers will take a percentage from other trades and then add this on to the customer invoice Domingo does not. He has a code of ethics which is very old school and rare to find these days. There are no surprises to your budget at the end of the build again something which is unusual."

  • Outstanding Job in Realizing our Dreams

    "Domingo did an outstanding job in realizing our dreams whilst maintaining a voice of reason always fully explaining the practical ramifications. He maintained the perfect balance between creative proposals and practical solutions.

The end result in both instances is a beautiful modern living space matched by practical and enduring quality."
