About Ian Kenworthy

Originally from Yorkshire, I have lived in London for the past 35 years. I first fell in love with Mijas during visits to my uncle who has lived in the area for over 30 years.

I first saw the apartment when it was a building site and loved the position and the fabulous views were really what sold it to me - I was the first person to move into the apartment when the block was opened in 2004

I work in the hospitality business in London and hope to spend more time in the apartment when I finally retire in about 5 years time. Until then I enjoy renting out the apartment and get satisfaction from all the lovely comments from guests. I have made the apartment as comfortable as possible and hope that people use it as their home when they are staying.

Ian Kenworthy purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Ian Kenworthy chose Mijas area

The village has a very special atmosphere, it's main population is Spanish people so it retains the character of a Spanish village, with a local food market and all the festivals that go along with Spanish life.

The property is wonderfully situated in a quiet corner of the village with exceptional views out to the sea and up to the mountains.

What makes this apartment unique

The amazing view which I never tire of.

Quite location

Covered secure parking.

Easy access to the fabulous historic cities in Andalusia.

As has been said, the apartment is fantastic in a lovely spanish village. Loved sitting on the balcony at any time of day reading and watching the locals about their daily business eg. the horse handlers taking their horses up the hill in the morning and back down at night, listening to the music and feet stamping from the dance school. When walking to and from the centre of village you will pass the local women cleaning their doorstep and local men sitting on benches have a good old blether. The apartment is very quiet and we didn't hear any noise from other neightbours. Door to apartment was very stiff and we always worried that we were making too much noise as you had to close door with force but that is the only negative that we can think of. Would definately rent the apartment again if we were in the area again.

Fabulous apartment, well located , a hidden gem.

  • 5 of 5

2nd time at this apartment for myself and my husband. Located just at the edge of the village of Mijas. A quiet spot but 2 minute walk and your in this charming village. The apartment has everything you need and is very clean and modern. Having the roof top pool and sun deck is a peice of heaven. The owner, Ian is great to deal with and we have never had a problem. Definitely be back.

Amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, well-appointed and Emily was very helpful when needed. Ian responded quickly to minor concerns and they were resolved. The view from the large balcony is amazing! The village (Mijas) is sooo charming and we truly had a chance to relax and unwind- but still plenty do see and do. Would return again in a heartbeat.

Lovely condo in Mijas Pueblo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Ian's condo for 2 weeks in May. Ian provided us with lots of information before we arrived and Maria the housekeeper met us at the condo on our arrival. (it can be a little tricky to find if roads are closed) The condo is well equipped, spotlessly clean and the covered patio has a beautiful view of the Mediterranean. A communal pool can be found on the roof and is accessible through the parking garage. There is no need to use a car within Mijas, everything is within walking distance of the condo however there are a few hills so be prepared for a bit of a hike. (the nice thing is it's all downhill on the way home) There is a public bus that goes into Fuengirola and Torremolinos from Mijas on a regular basis.

Mijas is a beautiful little village away from the crowds at the beach. It has great restaurants, grocery stores, a small market selling meat, fish and fresh vegetables and lots of stores for browsing. Our favourite restaurant (and we tried lots) was Alboka on the main road by the plaza, they had excellent tapas and mains at reasonable prices. Mijas is a great location to use a base to explore the area. Sevilla is 2.5 - 3 hrs away by car, Cadiz can be done on a daytrip there and back as can Granada and Cordoba, and Malaga is 40 mins away. Overall we had a very pleasant stay and would not hesitate to recommend this condo.

Property as described stunning views to the ocean and in a great location relative to the village

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment with ocean view, everything you could need for a great holiday. Close to lovely bars and restaurants. Spacious bedrooms and kitchen / diner. There is a great variety of restaurants to chose from and all at a reasonable cost. We had a hired car but parked it in the underground car park for the entire week, local transport is so inexpensive and very regular, we got a bus and train to Malaga an spent a night there, total return cost €5.05 each. The train stops in Malaga Airport, if I was coming again I wouldn't bother with the hire car. Definetly an ideal apartment and location to return to.

Mijas; 4 miles inland & 25 minutes drive from Malaga airport is know as 'White Mijas' because of the marble white colour of the Andelusian syle houses of the village. Situated at 1476 ft above sea level the village gives wonderful views to the sea. Golf, horse riding, bird watching and walking are amongst some of the most popular activities in the area. Once rested why not venture further afield & visit one of the wonderful cities and towns near by: Granada with its amazing Moorish Alhambra Palace: Malaga, the birth-place of Picasso and the site of the Picasso museum: Rhonda, high in the Serrania Rhonda mountains with its famous Roman bridge: Cordoba a world heritage site, home to the Alcazar built in 1328 and the Mosquita-Cathedral de Cordoba dating from the 8th century. Alternatively you might enjoy sipping “cocktails” in the harbour at Puerto Banus: the millionaire’s playground of the area. If you are feeling more adventurous why not visit Gibralta or North Africa for the day
