About Kimberley Stone

I am currently living in Colchester in Essex. I work as a Physiotherapist and I don't get to Spain as often as id like, because of my work commitments. When i did have more time I use to spend long holidays in the apartment, which is why you will find the apartment home from home.

Kimberley Stone purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Kimberley Stone chose Marbella area

I love El Soto because of the great location and the facilities in the area. Fantastic beaches, loads of great golf courses as well as bars and restaurants. Internet availability. There is something for everyone here. The local malaga airport is only 40 minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

This luxurious apartment is located in a sunny location on top of a hill, by a beautifal lake, with fantastic views over the mountians and sea. The apartments in the complex enjoy a number of shared facilities such as a 9 hole par 3 golf course, putting green, beautiful gardens, several swimming pools, paddling pool, tennis and a childrens play ground.

There is a golf club on the complex, which is where the main reception is, as well as a bar, sauna, gym, jacuzzi and club house. All these facilities you can use free of charge during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a luxurious relaxing week with my husband staying in this lovely apartment in El Soto De Marbella. The apartment was beautiful even better than the photos very spacious and and well equipped. It had every thing you would expect at home plus a little more. My husband was happy he had a good reliable wifi connection.

We found booking easy and Kimberley (the owner) replied promptly to all emails and returned our deposit promptly.

Elsoto is set in lovely well maintained gardens, with access to six pools, a 9 hole golf course - and a excellent club house which you can walk to across the golf course. The restaurant in the club house serves reasonably priced food and has good entertainment.

We found lots to do whilst we were there. I would definitely recommend renting a car for the visit as the apartment is not a walkable distance to the beach or main shopping area. By car it's a 10 minute drive to the beach, lots of great restaurants and obviously l

Great stay in lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely comfortable apartment, our hostess couldn't do enough to make our stay more enjoyable. The complex has good facilities with a challenging little golf course, also excellent gym and great restaurant. Would recommend and will hopefully go back.

Lovely apartment in El Soto

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous apartment within the El Soto complex up in the hills of Elviria. Excellent instructions led us to the complex where we were warmly welcomed by Vicky who gave us all the necessary information to allow us a very relaxed holiday. The apartment has everything you need to have a wonderful break. All the pools are within walking distance but checking out the surrounding area requires a car as Elviria and all other popular spots are down the hill. However being up high allows a great view of both the surrounding mountains and the sea. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for a great holiday.

Lovely apartment with great leisure facilities

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay, Kimberley sent very detailed directions from the airport and her representative was waiting for us on arrival. Apartment was clean and well equipped, complex very quiet and peaceful, not many people in May. 9 hole par 3 golf course well maintained and great to improve the short game. Gym well equipped and bar and restaurant excellent value. Short drive to many golf courses in the area. If you wanted a night out there were many good restaurants in the town, about a 10 minute drive down the mountain. A car is essential. Lovely views and for us the peace and quiet outweighed the need for a car. We will definitely return, for longer next time!

Truly a great apartment

  • 5 of 5

“We have just returned from our family holiday a 10 night stay and the first time we have been back to this part of Spain for 20 years - This is a truly great apartment fully kitted out with everything you need to a very high specification for a family Hols with loads of space and great to have the use of 2 bathrooms so the children have the use of their own - Air con power showers the lot you really could not ask for more we also had the use of a new entertainment system which had access to all uk TV and numerous latest movies. The development has a number of pools to choose from all in a short walk from the apartment, the development is maintained to an extremely high standard which also has the benefit of a clubhouse which offers a great selection of meals throughout the day even breakfast for Bacon Sandwiches! You are 5/6 mins from La Cala Golf Resort where we had family staying so is a great base for a spring golf trip as an alternative - A car is recommended to make access to the local beaches and towns easier. Peter our agent was extremely helpful at all stages in arranging our holiday and would definitely recommend.”

What a fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place!

We have visited Marbella many times with our friends and we decided to stay in this particular apartment having been recommended by a family friend who has used this apartment before. We are so glad we acted on this recommendation, it is a beautiful place and so well kept. The facilities such as WiFi, Washing Machine, Air conditioning make this place feel like a home from home!

There are many pools to choose from around the complex, we used a different one almost every day. It's also nice to see the gardens etc all so well looked after and maintained.

The location is also ideal just 10mins to the sea front and a few lovely local bars/restaurants if you don't feel like going down the hill.

We will define they return and stay in this apartment again! Hopefully sooner rather then later :-)

Highly recommended facilities

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Spain and this accommodation. The information provided gave us clear directions to reach the accommodation without a hitch and took us the time suggested. There was a handy supermarket to get everything we needed 10 minutes before reaching the resort.

The accommodation is of a high standard with lovely décor and made us really comfortable for our week, with lots of personal touches such as books to borrow for the duration of the stay. The facilities within the apartment were great and it was clean, tidy and had everything we needed and extras such as a BBQ that we weren't expecting! The apartment was used by 4 adults and 2 children. There was ample space, the open plan design is lovely and great for relaxing and socialising. We loved being able to open the door out onto the patio area for breakfast and sit out looking at the hills, it was beautiful.

The complex has lots of swimming pools and during the week we were there, we had it to ourselves apart from a couple of other families. The resort has beautifully kept gardens, the pools were clean and the area well maintained. It was incredibly relaxing and the children had an amazing time by the pools all week.

Other facilities include the golf course (which my husband loved) tennis courts (which the children loved) and the clubhouse which was a 5 minute walk (and made great cocktails which I loved!) The food was fantastic if you don't want to cook!

Overall the holiday was just what we wanted, really relaxing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the apartment and resort. Would I go back again...definitely. (The children are already asking when can we go again!)
