The apartment is modern and stylishly decorated with every convenience including satelite TV, wireless broadband, DVD player, dishwasher and air conditioning. The living / dining room and master bedroom open onto large balconies overlooking the sea. The rear bedroom also opens onto a balcony. The beach is a 5 minute walk away.

Carbon off-setting option: If you are worried about the environmental impact of travelling by plane for holidays, we have identified a reputable company to allow you to offset the carbon footprint of your travel - for a reasonable price. What's more, if you book our apartment, we'll share the cost with you! The typical cost for a family of four travelling from London to Malaga would be about £18 - or £9 to you - we'll pay the other £9 and take care of all the details.

You will get confirmation from the company direct to show that you have offset the CO2 for your journey. Ask us for more details.

Junk email filter: Please add my email address (andyfuller@ntlworld.com) to your safe email list - I have had several enquiries where I have not been able to contact customers because the email went straight into their junk email! Thanks

Guestbook comments from the owner

We (5 grown-ups) so much enjoyed the spacious light well equipped two-storeyed apartment making us all feel at home straight away. Three lovely bedrooms with good modern beds, each with adjacent bathrooms, of which the master bedroom with its big inviting bathroom certainly stands out with the stunning view of the Mediterranean Sea from the upper big balcony facing east and south; an unforgettable view that may even be enjoyed from the comfortable master bed!



The lower identical balcony opens from the combined sitting room and dining room, and a smaller balcony on the second floor adjacent to the second upper bedroom offers you the opportunity of en-joying the late afternoon sun till evening facing west and north with a beautiful view of the mountains at a distance.



It goes without saying that the underground parking space makes your access to the apartment much easier and keeps the car much cooler in hot weather!!



From the very first contact with the British owner there was a mutual good under-standing of the conditions, which left an impression of serious and high quality business further empha-sized through the signing of the detailed Rental Agreement. Detailed directions for the location of the flat accompanies the Agreement and lots of printed material on all kinds of activities and attractions are at your disposal on your arrival.



On top of enjoying life on the balconies we walked to the beach and went for a couple of highly interesting trips: Gibraltar was a treat, Dolphin and Whale Watching/Safari ( a scientific project with an introduction and two hours´ sailing close to the African coastline) from the most southern Spanish town of Tarifa, east of Gibraltar, took us all by our hearts, see www.firmm.org , notice that the telephone numbers on the website may be wrong!



We made our way to several impressive pueblo blancos: Cazares, Ojen, Ronda and many more, and as our most outstanding and longest trip: the town of Granada to see the Alhambra, which deeply impressed both the older and the younger generation. It was certainly worth the long driving.



We enjoyed the pools set in beautiful surroundings, relaxed and read books on the balconies, felt at home in the flat, we fully recommend it and consider seriously coming back since we missed Sevila this time.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Your appartment rental was just perfect. At the first moment we felt very comfortable. The appertment provides a lot of excellent amenities. In particular,

the two large balconies overlooking the Sea in addition to separate baths for each bedroom, was just great.

Worth mentioning is also the splendid view to watch the sunrise over the sea, it is breathtaking.

We must also mention the private garage space beneath the building. This made access in and out of the appartment

very easy and provided a peace of mind where to park.

We enjoyed

the brochures, maps and general bits of infos on eating, travel and special places to visit.

Must also comment on the availability of lounges, sun umbrellas and the many appliances which came with the rental.

The swimming pool was perfect for a swim, also a bit cool at the time of our stay.

The appartment is centrally located, this makes it easy to drive to Malaga, to Gibraltar or the back country in a short time.

We highly recommend your place and will consider a revisit

I'm sure we will be back !!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks staying in this lovely spacious apartment. We were 5 adults and a baby with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms everyone had space. The apartment is in a great location with fabulous views over the sea. It is at the top of a hill and the paths around the apartment and to the pool are quite steep so not suitable for everyone.

The pool can be viewed from the terrace and is great the teenagers loved the fact it was deep enough to dive in and the baby pool next to it meant we were all happy, there are about 10-12 sunbeds around the pool and most of the time it wasn't too busy.

We went for several days out, including Gibraltar, we drove and parked in underground car park just before the border as our car hire company said car had to stay on Spanish soil. The car park was 12 euros for the day. We walked to the border and just before crossing bought our cable car tickets to the top of the rock which included free bus to start of cable car and fast track entry (which on the day we visited was invaluable as queues were very long the wait was hours not minutes)

We went to the water park at Algeciras , kids enjoyed that, 22 euros to get in 5 euros for 2 beds and umbrella for day.

Turning right out of the Urbanization takes you up the mountain road to Casares a beautiful white old town clinging to the Mountain, all the way up this road are some excellent restaurants almost one on every bend!! well worth the drive only takes 30 mins to get to top.

The beach and promenade at Sabinillas is a 5 min drive and is full of restaurants and activities for the kids. At the end of the promenade you arrive at the Marina at Puerto de la Duquesa again lots of restaurants and stalls.

Andy was an excellent host with good communication before our trip , during and after. On arrival at the apartment Lois advised us the Air Con downstairs was not working but Andy arranged for the engineers to come and it was fixed within a couple of days so didn't spoil our experience. Thanks again Andy and Family I'm sure we will be back !!!

Great holiday in the sun for 5!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the apartment at Bahia de Casares. The complex, situated on top of the hill has wonderful views of the sea, with Estepona in the distance and of the local town Sabinillas below. A car is a must here as walking would be difficult in the heat. Andy the owner was quick to reply to any questions via email and Lois is nearby to help out if needed. The rooms are spacious and airy and the 3 bathrooms make it perfect with 3 teenage boys! Well equipped kitchen with a few basic ingredients left by others. 2 lovely pools to choose from which were wonderful to cool off in when the temperature got up to 41°! Nothing else to do nearby so a car is necessary but lots of nice places not far away. Lidl only a 5 minute drive to stock up on food and beer! A lovely place to stay in real Spain.

Great apartment with fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location of this apartment and the views. Very spacious place and actually felt more like a house as on 2 levels. Underground carpark is great and very convenient, and I would recommend a car to anyone staying here as the hill is steep to the beach, and can be managed but would be wearing over any period of time.

There are various shops, bars and restaurants within 5 minutes drive and there are loads of places to go- Estepona (love the old town), Puerto Banus (posh shops), Marbella (again see the old town), Tavira (for dolphin and whale watching), Water Park within 40 minutes, Sotogrande (again posh area with great beaches) and Ronda (amazing town).

The pools for the kids (and us) were great with baby pools and major pools to dive in so our 4 boys were very happy.

Great for a family break... loved it!

The development 'Terrazas de la Bahia' is on the hillside at Casares Costa (or Bahia de Casares), just off the main coastal road 6km west of Estepona. Further west, within a couple of minutes drive (or a lovely beach walk), is the town of Sabinillas and the pretty port at La Duquesa both with a huge variety of restaurants, cafes and bars. 14km inland is the much photographed white pueblo of Casares known as the 'Hanging Village'. This part of the coast is much less developed but well connected by the coastal road and the motorway. Estepona, Casares and Sabinillas remain refreshingly traditional Spanish villages. It is a 45-60 minute drive from Malaga airport, 30 minutes from Gibraltar airport and 1 1/2 hours drive from Jerez airport.

The new Finca Cortesin golfcourse - home of the Volvo World Match play championship is within a kilometre of the apartment. Many other high quality golf courses are within a few minutes drive.
