Overview

Estepona Port & Town Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Modern & spacious apartment overlooking Estepona Marina with stunning sea views

Stunning, South East facing, air-conditioned apartment ideally situated on the 3rd floor thus providing great views but not too high for vertigo sufferers. Directly overlooking the beautiful Estepona Marina with the local tapas bars and restaurants within an easy 5 minute walk. Access is provided to 2 swimming pools. Two E.C. Blue Flag beaches are an easy 5 minute walk away and Estepona old town with it's many beautiful tree lined plaza's is on the doorstep. The apartment has an open balcony, comfortably seating 4 people, providing panoramic views of Gibraltar, North Africa, the traditional white walled town and the lovely marina. Just perfect for people watching! The apartment is stunningly furnished having recently undergone a full refurbishment. It is comprehensively equipped with all you will need for a short break or long term stay. Our goal has been to provide a home from home for our guests, within one of the most beautiful, unspoiled and typically Spanish areas on the Costa del Sol.

Gibraltar: Only 35 minutes drive from Estepona (and on the local bus route), Gibraltar is a sunny, VAT-free haven where you can find duty free bargains from electronic equipment & jewellery to leather & perfumes & haggling is encouraged! Make sure you don't miss the spectacular natural caverns of St. Michael's Caves or visit the Ape's Den, home to some of Gibraltar's famous Barbary Apes, the only free-to-roam primates in Europe. Watch out for monkey business as they can be mischievous and have been known to pick the occasional pocket looking for treats.

The Dolphin Trip from the Marina is an excellent day out and very rarely are dolphins not seen.

Puerto Banus & Laguna Village: Puerto Banus is about 25 minutes drive away. It has a large number of designer stores including Versace and Armani. Perfect for millionaire spotting and you may also see a famous face or two in the port as a number of Hollywood stars have summer homes there.

Laguna Village is a stunning high class shopping experience just 10 minutes drive away. Whether spending an extravagant day at the beach club, shopping in the designer stores or spending time in the luxurious bars and restaurants then Laguna Village is the ideal place.

Selwo Safari Park: Only 20 minutes drive away and on the public transport route, Selwo is ideal for the perfect family day out. The park is based on an African safari park and houses 2000 animals from giraffes to panthers in semi-wild conditions. Like Jurassic Park, large open sided lorries drive you through the various animal enclosures and up into the hills above Estepona. There are elephants, bears, hippos and so much more to see. In the summer, cover up as it can get very hot and there is not much shelter.

About Andy Loftus

We have been holidaying in Estepona since 1992 and in 2009 we were lucky enough to be able to leave Manchester and move to Spain. We have been letting guests stay in our apartments for over 10 years and like to think that we now know how to make our guests holidays a special experience; from the simple booking process, to providing detailed directions to the apartment, to the standard of the 'finish' of the apartments and the quality of the complementary welcome pack that we provide. It sounds easy but getting the little details just right is often the making of a stress free holiday.

Andy Loftus purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Andy Loftus chose Estepona Port & Town

Puerto Paraiso is ideally located overlooking the lovely Estepona Marina and has views to die for! From watching the beautiful sun rise in the morning, to people watching throughout the day it is often hard to tear yourself away from the balcony, but you must, as Estepona has such a lot to offer both in and around the Marina and also in the 'old town' which is an excellent example of a sea-side pueblo blanco.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is furnished with quality, modern and comfortable furniture and is well equipped with all you need to make this your holiday home from home. If you are in any doubt, refer to the review section; 10 years of 5 star rating is difficult to argue with.

Excellent holiday - looking forward to returning.

  • 5 of 5
We spent 5 weeks during February-March 2011 in Andy and Beata's apartment in Estepona.

Andy explained that they had tried to create a "wow" factor when guests first entered the apartment and with the recent make-over the apartment certainly provides that.

During our stay in Estepona we had the opportunity of looking at several other apartments and only one other met a similar standard (and that was a larger apartment also owned by A&B)

The apartment is furnished in a modern style with great views (great waking up in the morning to the sun coming in the bedroom window) All areas are well equiped.There are a number of stores within 2 mins walking distance for food/drink etc.

The balcony is a joy where on most mornings we had breakfast in the sun..It was the perfect place to people watch as it not only overlooks the Marina but also many of the bars and restaurants that make the Marina the vibrant place it is.

We would often stay on the balcony in the morning enjoying the sun then venture out in the afternoon to have lunch ,walk along the Paseo Maritimo with the blue sea on one side and a fantastic display of succulants on the other or stroll along the Marina or beach.

The "Old Town" is superb and offers a real glimse of what Estepona was in the past.There are several squares to visit and stop in for a cooling drink.

The range of restaurants and bars is good with a good selection of Tapas bars to try (highly recommended). Estepona is still a vibrant fishing port with many excellent fish restaurants in the area.We would recommend El Pescador on the Paseo Maritimo, El Cazador in the Marina and La Escollera in the port. We had our laptop with us and found De La Mar,near the apartment a good place to visit for free WiFi along with great food and drink and really nice staff.

Estepona is the sort of place you can quite happily visit without doing any day trips but should you want to go to Gibraltar,Malaga or Peurto Banus public transport is available with a bus service from Estepona.

We thoroughly enjoyed our five weeks in A&B's apartment, so much so that we have booked 5 weeks next year.We would have returned for a month in October had the apartment been available.

We had the pleasure of meeting Andy and Beata several times.There is no doubt that they care about their guests and go to great lengths to ensure the apartment meets all expectations.

We look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely comments. It is great to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and that you have also fallen in love with Estepona.

In the 10 years we have been renting this apartment we have taken a great pride in providing as high a quality of holiday as possible for all our guests as we know how important holidays are, especially if like us, you have been looking forward to them for a long time.

We recognise that the quality of the apartment, the standard of the accommodation and also the fixtures and fittings is especially important when catering for longer term guests and it is great to know that we have created the right environment for our guests as proven by you returning to stay with us next year.

I'm sure we will have opportunity to catch up with you in the new year over a nice glass of wine in the Marina.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time we have stayed in one of Andy and Beata's apartments in Estepona and I have to say the apartment lived up to all our expectations. As always booking and pre arrival service was excellent and we met the owners as arranged. The apartment is as described in the advertisement, spacious, cool and great for watching on to the marina. We had no problems with any noise from the bars and found the location excellent. Our preference for dining is in Estepona town centre where we found better value and quality and more authentically Spanish. The one exception to this is Le Petit Paris, just up the road from the apartment, which is great in terms of both quality and value. I have no doubt we will back to Estepona.

Wonderful vacation in a perfect apartment

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week in this apartment. The apartment was easy to find and when we get there we were met by Sue. She showed us the place and answered all our questions we had. The location was just 5 minutes away from the beach. Sue recommended the beach El Christo and it was the best place to be at the beach. The restaurant Havana Beach is a nice place for having lunch. They have great wraps. We had a car, but to get to the points of interest in Estepona you don't need one. Except the wednesday-market at the firestation everything else is in walking distance.
The apartment itself is roomy enough for two people and is very comfortable. You will not miss a thing. We never saw a holiday apartment what was soo clean, well equipped, even with a filled up fridge, for such a reasonable price. It does not feel like a holiday apartment, it feels like a private place.

There was only ONE thing we didn't like. The bars around the harbour area are crowded all night long and it is noisy, not to say loud. Sleeping with an open window is not possible. The last guests were leaving the bars and discotheks at 6 o'clock in the morning, most of them singing.
But that is really the only disadvantage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you kind comments. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you also found Cristo Beach (and the Havana Beach Chriniguito) as welcoming as we do. We tell all our guests to treat the apartment as a holiday home from home and it is great to hear that we exceeded your expectations – Thank you!

I’m sorry if some of your evenings were disrupted but Estepona is a tourist destination and also has a number of Feria’s (bank holiday celebrations) during May and these can sometimes, as you say, continue until the early hours. Unfortunately therefore it might not be possible to sleep with the windows open and if you are unable to join in with the celebrations then we have provided a two lots of double glazing and a storm shutter to keep out the noise and allow you to sleep normally. The air-conditioning and the ceiling fans should keep you cool on these occasions.

Hopefully this has not put you off Estepona as if you wanted to stay with us again in the future it would be our pleasure to accommodate you again.

Easter in estepona

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a wonderful Easter break in Estepona. The apartment is exactly as described great location at entrance to marina and supermarket outside the front door. We really enjoyed the Easter processions that took place every nite in the town and the fantastic atmosphere in the narrow streets. We were a bit unlucky with the weather but were able to walk the prom every morning and have breakfast along the sea front looking across to Gibraltar. We drove up thr mountains to Rhonda and down the coast to tariffe really very scenic drives. The apartment was spotless and really well equipped and Sue with the welcome pack was there at the appointed time to meet us when we arrived .the entire booking process with Andy was very simple and Andys information pack and list of restaurants was a great help just had not enough time to try them all. For a special night out I would recommend Robbies bit expensive but worth going once on your holiday try there prawns Judy garland. We had a wonderful break and looking forward to staying longer on our next visit.

The Puerto Paraiso complex is ideally situated in the heart of Estepona's thriving marina with a wide array of restaurants and tapas bars giving the area a truly Spanish feel whilst pleasantly avoiding the 'night club' culture sometimes suffered on the Costa del Sol. Within 5 minutes walk you will find two supermarkets, local shops and beautiful beaches with E.C. Blue Flag status (awarded for cleanliness and safety). Our favourite, Cristo Beach, is a delightful oyster-shaped cove of sheltered, gently shelving sand, ideal for children and is only 5 minutes walk away (250m). In high season the beaches are manned by lifeguards and all have well maintained toilet and shower facilities and a choice of beachfront, traditional, Spanish restaurants (chiringuitos) making it ideal for a family day out. Estepona, due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, enjoys its own micro climate providing over 325 days of sunshine per year and lovely mild winters.

Other Activities: Chilling out in the sun with a cold drink and people watching!
