Many thanks for all your help with our many changes, you were very helpful & we will be back. Great to have so much space to move around & be beside the beach.
The townhouse is situated in a lovely quiet area next to the sea. The resort was close enough to walk if you like to meander but as there is some building work nearby the access to the lovely beach front of Estapona was restricted. To overcome this we had to drive just 5 mins to be able to stroll safely with our 2 and 4 year olds. The Park area and restaurants by the beack were fabulous and we ate a really lovely meals at the port.
The House is lovely and well equiped and the roof top terrace was particularly lovely for evening and lunch time BBQ's. The nearby restaurant is currently up for sale so the nearest places to eat out were Kempinski or Laguna beach. Estepona is a lovely break from the rest of the coast and felt very spanish - all be it modern day spanish. Shopping was easy with lots of supermarkets and the town area for Estepona was lovely with lots of squares and restaurants.
The town house was very cool in the day and so we only needed AC on at night, and it is brilliantly equipped with shutters that really help black out - perfect for the 2 little ones.
Showers were as promised - strong and pleanty of hot water.
A very nice place to stay with the building work not intrusive from a noise perspective.
The pool area is fabulous although a few sun beds (rather than chairs) would have made it perfect - really nit picking now.
Kiddies pool was perfect for the 4 and 2 year olds to play safely and independantly which they loved.
Malaga was a lovely city and very spanish - if you head there get a picnic from the market - brilliant - and head for the sheltered gardens along the sea front to eat and let the kids run riot after on the park. Lots to still see in Malaga - when the Kids are older we will introduce them to the history and Picasso.
The owner provided lots of info before and there was lots of additional info in the apartment and a good book selection.
We saw the gym but stuck with running in the sun to keep fit - it was well equipped.
All in all the holiday let met our needs - with the access to Estepona restricted currently a car would be necessary.
thank you for review mail. yes very happy with holiday, all my family are very happy with house pool & location. we are 3 families together, lots of room, very clean, private, quiet. Pool really nice for us., very clean. locked the key in the house one day and your manage company fixed in one hour, very helpful. really like the views and being so close to sea, took many walks. Hope to see you next year. Thank you again for all the help.
Lovely spacious well equipped villa in a fantastic location. Loved the roof top terrace for evening BBQ's and the terrace of the master bedroom was a great place to chill away from the children !! Comfy beds, hot powerful showers, good kitchen equipment, and air con.
Great pool which we had to ourselves the majority of the time. Local beach couple of minutes walk away at bottom of complex. Estepona short drive away, lovely authentic Spanish town with variety of restaurants, shops and local market. Loved Crystal bay beach just passed Estepona harbour. Area has plenty of things to see and do for all ages. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and would recommend.
We stayed with our 3 year old and found the villa and surroundings to be really suitable for a family holiday.
The villa has some nice outside eating areas - the downstairs table is in shade most of the time which is helpful. Roof terrace great for a BBQ (look out for the roof terrace keys hanging on the upper part of the staircase - we couldn't find them for a few days!). Dishwasher and washing machine, and all the cooking equipment you need for basic meals. Aircon and wifi both worked well. Only issue for us with a small child was the marble/stone staircases, and lots of them! You might want to contact the owner to prearrange hire of stairgates if you have adventurous toddlers. We ended up barricading everything with chairs but I should have sorted out stairgates as it would have been less stressful!
The shared pool is very close and has a separate baby/toddler pool. The beach is just a couple of minutes walk away. Not the most beautiful beach in the world but sandy, great for paddling and sandcastles and very safe and quiet. For restaurants, daytrips and supermarkets its all possible within walking distance but we found it much easier to hop in the car for a couple of minutes to do everything as you are walking on fairly main roads otherwise which we preferred not to do with our toddler. With a car, everything is very easy, we had some lovely meals at Laguna Village and the Marina, and had a great day out to the nearby (less than 10 mins drive) safari park. I'd also recommend Pura Beach club at Laguna Village- an amazing pool, incredible food and service and a really cool atmosphere. They were lovely with our little one, and the only downside was it was hugely expensive! If you can afford to splash out it's a real treat and we went 3 times as we loved it so much (also fantastic people watching!). Wouldn't rate the local restaurant within Garden Beach complex itself though - we ate there the first night for convenience and it was fine just the once, but I wouldn't hurry back!
We were 2 families travelling together with children & the house really matched the description. We had lots of space in the house, everything was very comfortable & really clean. The direct access to the beach was so great to allow the children to come & go. The pool was cleaned every day and the general appearance of the complex was very well kept & safe. Location also suited us as we are more used to Marbella & this was more relaxed & more Spanish. We all loved Laguna Village but the walk down to it could be a bit nicer but it is short. Thank you for all the games & floats in the garage, the children enjoyed them. Yes overall a great holiday, see you maybe next summer...
We did not realize the third bedroom was in the basement behind the garage and laundry room. Lots of stairs - not good for little children or elderly persons. The pool had no furniture - you had to take your own back and forth. Lovely balconies with nice views. Living room furniture needs a bit of updating. A few minor issues got resolved while we were there, but the issue of bird droppings (lots) on the front steps didn't get resolved. We had to step into and over the droppings to get in the villa - very disturbing. Nice to be near the beach and a few restaurants and shops, otherwise we drove to town, but you could probably take the bus in. Good location to travel to Gibraltar and Morocco and also Granada etc.
Situated on the new golden mile, Estepona, Costa Del Sol, the house/villa is located beach side of the main coast Rd. It is a 10 minute drive to Puerto Banus and 2 mins to Estepona town. It is beside the luxury Kempinski Hotel & Spa and the 5* Mar Azul Hotel & Spa. It is also within easy walking distance to beach bars and restaurants and the new and very trendy Laguna Village Beach Complex complete with shops and restaurants.
