2 bedroom, 2 bathroom luxury penthouse with 2 sun terraces and pool, sleeps 4
Semi-retired from the UK my family and I love to escape to the sun, a welcoming country with so many interesting places to visit, and somewhere for relaxation or adventure. If you like golf there are many courses nearby and even someone as bad as me can play without feeling under pressure.
Why John chose Carib Playa
The terraces are private and the spacious main terrace is perfect for quiet sunbathing and eating in the shade. The views are wonderful - trees, duneland, sea, distant mountains and sometimes the coast of Africa.
What makes this Apartment unique
The privacy of the property is very important to me as well as the pleasure of being up amongst the trees with all sorts of birds and yet close to the beach and restaurants.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a great stay in the apartment! Good and easy contact with the kind owner and a warm welcome from the local representative Sarah!
The apartment was well kitted out, everything from kitchen utensils to hairdryers to furniture and other gadgets, was there. The area is quiet, even in August it never felt busy. Lovely few from the terrace over the trees and towards the beach. The swimming pool was very nice as well and also, even in August, nevery too busy.
So all in all a fantastic stay, and well worth a repeat visit!
Fantastic private main terrace with sea view and lovely apartment and furnishings with everything you could want to enjoy your holiday. Totally recommended!
The apartment was really nice and we had a great holiday
The apartment was as good if not better than expected. It was nicely decorated and very comfortable. The main terrace was very spacious and completely private. The small terrace had a lovely view of the quiet gardens and pool. The area was great for a relaxing holiday although we had plenty of exercise walking through the dunes, to the beach and to the nice local restaurants. We were met on arrival at the apartment by Wendy who showed us round and we were provided with a delicious welcome pack which made our first evening very pleasant. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you so much for your comments. I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope maybe to have you visit again.
Très très bon sejour
Superbe appartement situé dans un quartier tranquille à proximité de la plage

Thank you so much for your comments and for taking the time to write them. I am pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment. hope to have you return some time.
Johns apartment was fabulous. The balcony is fantastic for sitting out in the day sunbathing and at night having a meal or having drinks in the peaceful surroundings. The pool is very large and v welcome in the heat. Within easy walking distance to the supermarket and also over the dunes to the port area at Cabopino for restaurants and great beaches. The apartment has air conditioning which is fantastic. We had a fantastic week and our favourite restaurant was Simbad by the sea with wonderful seafood and a ten minute walk. Thanks again John. Will look to come back v soon.
I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and the apartment and amenities. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review.
Summertime Get Away.
Travelled as a couple, to enjoy our summer getaway for 10-days. The property was exactly as detailed and expected, communication with the owner very swift and easy, where any pre-booking questions were answered honestly and therefore we were very happy. The Penthouse is located in a quiet & private spot near to Puerto Cabopino, the sun terrace enjoying all day sunshine and very private, which as sun lovers we actively seek and request.
Very comforatble property, furnishings comfortable, where we sadly incurred a maintenance issue on the very first day, however our local support contact sourced and supplied a plumber very efficiently with a new hot water boiler fitted within hours (excellent!).
We would highly recommend to couples and families, excellent walks just on your doorstep, mindful that there is no lift service to the flat if essential to you? Very much looking forward to being able to return in the future.
Our only criticism is the two apartments below, one is for sale and the ground floor looks unused and shoddy appearance. This is unfair on the owner as not his responsibility or control, however as a visitor, neighbouring properties directly affect your own stay and enjoyment, hopefully they can be resolved.
Many thanks to John for allowing us to enjoy a very much needed holiday in our favourite location, his patience throughout when making the booking and looking forward to our next trip in due course.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the sunshine!
The penthouse apartment is set in colourful landscaped gardens with a large community pool in a quiet residential neighbourhood only 30 minutes by car from Malaga airport. Adjoining a conservation area of dunes, eucalyptus trees and pine woods bordering a long beach which is a 5 minute walk over the unspoilt dune-land, filled with wild flowers in the spring and now includes a wonderful boardwalk through the Cabopino dunes! This property is a perfect romantic hideaway and a haven for peaceful relaxation with sea and mountain views.
A very large choice of restaurants lie within driving distance as do the fashionable shops and malls of Marbella, some 15 minutes by car. For those seeking night life, plenty is available within Marbella and its surroundings. There are numerous golf courses in the area making this a golfer’s paradise and good skiing exists (in season) in the Sierra Nevada mountains near Granada, within 2 hours drive away.
The property is a good touring base to explore this interesting and historic part of Spain (Malaga, Seville, Granada etc.) or for trips to the mountains, Gibraltar and North Africa.
