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
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.

Sports & Adventure Activities
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.
Thankfully a little WD40 on the door seems to have done the trick,! ....Ian
Lovely village apartment
Im very pleased that we chose to stay in this apartment rather than our usual place. Not having to use a car to get to the village was very handy with everything being within 5 minutes walk away. The apartment was very clean and had everything that we needed. The rooftop pool was a lovely sun trap offering great views to the coast. We would happily stay here again
Home from home
This was our third stay at this apartment & we are booking to come back next year. It's in an ideal setting, so close to the beautiful village of mijas pueblo. The bars & restaurants offer fantastic food & value for money & are on your doorstep. Ian is very good with everything, I would definitely recommend this apartment, it's spacious, has a lovely balcony & I get my washing done before I go home, which makes things so much easier.
Relaxing stay in a beautifully appointed apartment
The quality and high standard of this apartment, the setting with it's views from the balcony and pool coupled with the extra helpful and friendly owner, Ian, made booking this apartment and our stay at Mijas truly memorable. The apartment is well appointed and has more than enough space and facilities for a family to holiday in luxury. Scrupulously clean and very comfortable , it is only a short walk from the centre of the village. If you are after a relaxing holiday in a stylish, comfortable apartment with a beautiful and interesting view, book this apartment with confidence!
Dear Martin - thank you for your kind comments about my apartment. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again next year ! Very best wishes, Ian
Superb apartment. Convenient location. Stunning views.
Spent two weeks in this superb apartment which lived up well to the description. Location permits short uphill walk into the village where Mijas offers a great range of bars and restaurants most of which are reasonably priced. The balcony offers the opportunity to take in the fantastic views down to Fuengirola and the Mediterranean beyond and to watch the horses and donkeys making their way from or to their stables. Although we had a car it was hardly necessary unless wanting to go down to the coast. There is ample bus and taxi availability. being in Mijas during the annual festival also gave us lots of free entertainment. Bonus!
Great apartment. Great place. Great time.
Lovely apartment with beautiful views
We have been to Mijas before and have always had a very enjoyable stay.Ian's apartment is lovely with beautiful views and has everything you need.We would not hesitate to recommend it our friends and family and I'm sure we will be back again very soon
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
