We consider this Apartment to be absolutely perfect for Families, Golfers, Sun Lovers, and those in need of Fun & Relaxation, in the coastal hills of the Costa del Sol.

This centrally air-conditioned apartment accommodates up to six people in three bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes, plus two bathrooms.

Other FREE facilities also include a well equipped gym, a sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, tennis courts & paddle tennis, a putting green and a beautiful 9 hole par 3 golf course. The clubhouse offers many different entertainment functions throughout the year for the whole family.

The apartment has a lovely, spacious, double-height living area with fast wireless internet throughout, Smart Amazon Fire TV, large leather sofa, a comfy chair, and 6-person dining table, all of which allows you to relax any time, or entertain your friends indoors.

Beautiful large outdoor terrace with very comfortable seating area and glass top table, sea facing, and overlooking stunning gardens and the golf courses, from where you will also enjoy more spectacular views of the Mediterranean coast and Sierra Nevada mountains. Fully equipped modern kitchen (all new Siemens units) with separate utility laundry room with washer/drier.

Each bedroom has several built-in wardrobes with drawers. The top floor master suite offers complete privacy, where the main bedroom is located, with beautiful oak frame king size bed and private balcony with breath taking views.

The apartment includes secure fast broadband internet throughout, with dedicated WiFi router and smart television. Families and friends will love the choice of any of the 2 sparkling crystal clear swimming pools, or just relaxing and soaking up the sunshine in the beautiful gardens on the many pool loungers under the swaying palm and date trees, whilst Golfers will appreciate the proximity to over 20 championship golf courses, including the world renowned stunning 54-hole Championship 'La Cala Mijas Golf Resort' only 5 minutes away, and 'Santa Maria Golf Club', 10 minutes away, which makes this a perfect golf and family holiday base.

It is an ideal base for families and friends to explore the inland delights of Andalucía with its Moorish influenced white villages or 'pueblos blancos' such as Mijas, Istán, Ojén, and Casares. Within a 2 hour drive such cities as Granada, Seville, Córdoba and Ronda are also definitely worth visiting. Gibraltar is a great day trip and it is possible to make the short hop over to North Africa by ferry or hydrofoil to Morocco.

Why Keith - Property Manager chose West Costa del Sol

Very close to the beautiful beaches and night life of Marbella and Puerto Banus, and yet hidden in the hills overlooking golf courses and the Mediterranean coastline, this was an oasis of comfort and tranquillity on the Cost del Sol.

All the necessary comforts and amenities are at our finger tips, we simply HAD to buy this lovely Duplex Penthouse Apartment and as a family, we spend as much time as possible here ! .... after all, the flights from the UK cost us less than the taxi ride from home to Heathrow !

What makes this apartment unique

Two sparkling pools to choose from, beautifully lawned gardens with colourful flowers, date and palm trees swaying in the warm breeze, sunshine just about every day of the year, beautiful winters, a golf course and amazing clubhouse, with excellent facilities, what else could we want ?

Your apartment is located in the hills above Elviria, near Marbella, Costa de Sol. Elviria is a friendly small community, fast developing as one of the most prestigious addresses in the Marbella area, and only 30 mins from the airport ! Visit the Old Town of Marbella (approx 10 kms) & enjoy a meal or drink, in famous Orange Square which is only 20 minutes drive away from the apartment.

Visit Granada to see the Alhambra Palace which is a famous fortress & monument of Arabic architecture. Visit Sevilla, Ronda, Córdoba, Puerto Bánus, Jerez or Cádiz to name just a few.

Andalucía is a huge region of Spain with a little of everything, from towering mountains to sandy beaches, true desert, to lush wetland, and picturesque villages to historic cities. Whether you want to get away from it all, or be in the centre of the things, there´s somewhere to suit everyone here!

Shopping excursions to Gibraltar or City of Málaga. Visit Tarifa the windiest place in Spain for lots of activities including wind & sea-surfing & many different water sports to enjoy. Visit typical white Andalucian villages of Mijas Pueblo or Nerja and many, many others.

There are around 10 golf courses very close by for example: La Cala Golf which is only 5 minutes drive away, where you will find 3 X 18 golf courses, Greenlife Golf set in the Elviria Hills, Santa Maria & Santa Clara golf courses & the famous Marbella Golf & Country Club.

Elviria beach is about 7 kms drive or 10+ minutes by car. The famous Nikki Beach is next to Elviria beach which is around 8 kms from the apartment.

Also there are easy excursions to Tangiers in Morocco by ferry from Algerciras or Tarrifa (crossing time is about 35 minutes).

Ski: The Sierra Navada Mountains in Granada are only 1.5 hours drive away. It is possible to be on the beach in the morning & be skiing the slopes in the afternoon during some months of the year.

The old town of Marbella is absolutely charming. The streets are narrow and cobbled, with chic boutiques and local cafés side by side. At the heart of the Old Town known as 'El Casco Antiguo' lies the Orange Square, which is also where the tourist office is ready to give you maps and information. Cross the road from the Alameda Park fountain and walk through the Orange Square past the old castle wall and into the impressive Cathedral. The Old Town is perfect for shopping and relaxing in the many cafés, restaurants and bars. This was the only shopping centre in Marbella 10 years ago before El Corte Inglés and the ultra modern La Cañada shopping centre arrived. You will find real hand made clothing and jewellery in the boutiques around the Old Town.

Heaven on a hill

  • 5 of 5

You will not be disappointed if you book a stay at this luxury penthouse apartment .

It is up in the hills above Elviria on a beautifully kept complex of quality apartments , the gardens and pool areas are maintained to a very high standard .

The club house and facilities are well worth a visit with a choice of homemade food from an extensive menu served by welcoming friendly staff . We didn't have chance to play tennis or golf but that's definitely on the agenda for next time as we found it difficult to drag ourselves away from the apartment and pool.

I can honestly say that the apartment is one of the best i've stayed in , the decor is modern and tasteful with comfortable furnishing plus all the equipment and mod cons that you need to make your stay a 5* one. The main balcony has an L shaped sofa , dining table and large gas barbecue, its a great size and can be accessed from the lounge or the double bedroom . I had the master suite which is a gem , I watched the sun rise over the sea every morning from the its own balcony .... bliss !

I've already enquired about booking next year as there is so much more to explore and experience in this wonderful part of the Costa del Sol .

Luxury at its best.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed on the complex on numerous occasions over the past 10 years and would honestly say that this Penthouse was one of the best.

Every room is immaculate and sun terrace is of the highest quality.

The Penthouse itself has everything in you may require for a great holiday experience.

Would not hesitate to come back and will hopefully be doing so later on in the year.

Greeting and changeover was also hassle free and super friendly.

Couldn't ask for no more.

Wonderful villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment on the inside and out - with beautiful views across the valley and down to the sea. Very clean and tidy inside with all the basics to make for an easy stay. The nearby clubhouse is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner with great food and extremely welcoming staff. Very close to the pool so you can easily nip up and down when you want to.

Would highly recommend to groups or families who want a relaxing break.

A really lovely, luxurious appartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five, including late teens and early twenties. The apartment is set in the hills with beautiful views, its a gorgeous location, very peaceful. Swimming pool was lovely and we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves most of the time.

Beach is a 10 minute drive away and there are lots of restaurants in nearby Elviria. We tended to visit different places most days, Gibraltar is definitely worth a visit, hire a taxi tour guide and remember its duty free. Mijas is very beautiful you can have dinner whilst looking out at the most magnificent views, sunset is to die for.

Overall a really lovely base for a great holiday.
