About Sue and Simon

We have been living in Spain since 2003 and love this area. It offers beautiful beaches, lovely restaurants and bars and a very relaxed way of life. We loved the apartment and its views from the first time we saw it. It offers a great base to stay in a beautiful and traditional Spanish village with lots of amenities on your doorstep. We are nearby in case of any problems and will meet you on arrival with the keys. We look forward to welcoming you to our apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sue

Thank you so much for all your assistance and advice before we set off for our holiday. It certainly helped in ensuring a smooth and stress free journey. Once we arrived we were absolutely delighted with the quality of the accommodation and the equipment at our disposal. And a special thank you for the 50th birthday banners and bottle of bubbly ! Very often it is all the little things that make such a big difference; like the chairs and bed for the beach, the books; the socket adapters (even though we had brought some with us); the well stocked equipment cupboard; and the bits and bobs in the bathroom and kitchen alleviating the need for a mad dash to the shops.

Once again many thanks for all your advice and help. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in such a delightful area. We would certainly have no hesitation in using your services again when we return to visit all the places we didn’t have time for this time around.

Very bright and spacious. Stunning views.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly how it was described. Very light and airy with the most stunning views. Very well equipped, they have thought of everything. The location is excellent for all the restaurants and tapas bars. We had a lovely meal in Konfusion. Superb pool area with a walk through the gate and you are on the beach. I would recommend the apartment to friends and we will be booking in there again as soon as we can get away.

Property OK for price.

  • 3 of 5

Needs free standing fan or air con. Cupboards are very smelly. Toilet got blocked. On plus side good views and right on beach front. Lovely well kept gardens and swimming pool. Near shops for food shopping.

Owner's Response: What a surprising review after what you told me was a very enjoyable stay. You did unfortunately block the toilet but this does not seem the correct forum to address that - and I believe we were quite polite about it at the time as these things happen (although it has never happened before or since). We are genuinely puzzled by the comment about the cupboards. They are cleaned regularly and no one has ever mentioned this, nor have we ever found it an issue ourselves. You did not raise this with us otherwise we would have come to see what the problem was and would have tried to resolve it. I'm so sorry that asking you to leave in the morning, at the pre-agreed time, because of the changeover that day was such an issue (I think you called it a disaster). It seems to have upset you but I did keep your cases in the apartment for you for as long as I could, and gave you access to the gardens and pool until your flight time. I thought that was a nice compromise since you hadn't booked to stay that day. We work really hard to ensure guests have an enjoyable experience at the apartment and happily most people think it is more than "ok" for the price. That is certainly our aim and I think our other reviews show this!

Beachfront, stunning view

  • 4 of 5

This is an ideally situated, spacious studio apartment with a fabulous view. The well kept gardens and pool area lead directly on to the beach and boardwalk and there are lots of bars and restaurants close by. The owners are great to deal with, Sue couldn't have been more helpful. Extremely good value.

Ideal location.

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment is ideal, 2 minutes from beach and a pleasant 10 minute walk down the beach boardwalk into the centre of La Cala. The local area is quiet and peaceful, even though there are many nice bars and restaurants close by.

The apartment is roomy, was very clean and well equipped.

La Cala de Mijas is a lovely place, we have been many times and will return .

Another wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we've stayed in this fantastically located flat which says it all. It's in a lovely resort, not too busy nor too quiet. Literally on the beach with a lovely private pool. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here, the view from the apartment is spectacular. Thanks again Sue

The apartment is on the beachfront at Butiplaya, which is a few minutes walk from the centre of La Cala (either along the beach or the traditional Spanish streets). It is a lively fishing village that retains much of its culture. It has a wide range of Spanish/International shops and bars and a very good twice weekly market. The apartment has a private and tranquil setting and there are some good bars/restaurants from value and cheap to special night out, beach bars and a lovely bakery in the immediate area. Local hotel offers good entertainment to non-residents. La Cala is located between Fuengirola and Marbella. These and Puerto Banus, Riviera del Sol, Torremolinos, Malaga, Benalmadena, Mijas Pueblo etc are all less than half an hour's drive. Seville, Granada, Ronda etc are easy day trips.

No need to hire a car (although there is plenty of parking if you do). The bus service is very good, as are the taxis, both are very reasonably priced. We can arrange an airport transfer.

Other Activities: Skiing is available at Sierra Nevada during winter months - around 2 hours drive
