Beautiful airy apartment

  • 5 of 5

The kitchen is well equipped. The beds are comfy. The pool is great. (open 11am - 9pm) The views are amazing. We had a very good time lazing by the pool and doing day trips out to various places. It was amazingly quiet at the complex. Loved every minute of our stay, didn't want to come home.

Apartment was very nice

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was as described, very nice place with plenty of room for 2 couples. We had a very enjoyable stay whiles visiting from Canada. There are quite a few steps to get to the apartment but there is an elevator to the first level 2 and then a short walk to a second elevator which goes to the next level 2. Was very enjoyable sitting on the patio overlooking the pool which has partial sea views. Would stay here again if we are thinking of going back to the Malaga - Marbella area. Very glad that we rented a car for our two week stay as it allowed us to tour around the area and day trips to Gibraltar, Granada and Ronda.

Fantastic location & holiday rental - totally ideal for families!!

  • 5 of 5

We visited at the start of February as a family of 4. We are 2 adults and 2 children (one aged 4 years and one aged 6 months old). What a fantastic find! The owners were really good at keeping in contact before our stay and therefore we were confident about our holiday stay.

We arrived to a very clean, spotless apartment after a flight from the UK. It seemed a lot bigger than what we'd viewed on the photos.

The balcony is ideal for sitting out in the sunshine for a family breakfast looking either out to sea or towards to pool!

The lounge area is ideal for relaxing in the evening when the children are in bed - a very comfy seating area next to the dining area.

The kitchen is well equipped - we decided to eat in each night as the children were exhausted and in bed by the time it was dark at 7pm!! Plenty of supermarkets in the area to keep adequately supplied!!

Both bedrooms are spacious - one is a double with a bathroom and the other is a a twin with a shower room off it.

We frequented local beaches at La Cala de Mijas and then discovered the great beach at Cabopino - daily sea swims were fantastic!

Day trips to Ronda and the white village of Mijas are possible and lunch out at Benalmadena kept our week busy!

Thank you for letting us use your lovely apartment for our winter sunshine holiday!!!

We'd totally recommend a stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and complementary comments about the apartment, and our contact with guests! We agree that photos do not clearly show how large the apartment is. It is very encouraging for parents of young children that you were able to share quality time with your young children, we will advise future guests about your thoughts regarding the beaches. Well done for having daily swims in February!

Could not be faulted. Exceptionally clean, well decorated & uncluttered. Everything provided.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing holiday over the New Year. Upon evening arrival the secure, gated complex was well lit. The apartment could be reached quickly by steps or as I am disabled by using the lift and walking along the pushchair/wheelchair walkway provided. Very pleasant as it took us around the pool area and lit up garden.

The apartment was delightful. Spacious and fully equipped. There was nothing not provided for. The alarm system was easy to remember and caused us no problems. The beds were comfortable and we loved having our individual bathrooms. The patio is well equipped with table and new loungers, we especially enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony.

The apartment is on the hillside and this accounts for the beautiful views. We hired a car from the airport which was imperative for me. We were able to park without problem outside the apartment complex. We used the car to explore many places, Marbella, Porto Banus, Fenguerola, Benalmadena along the coastline and also up into the mountains we explored Monda and also Rhonda. We enjoyed the local Mijas market on the Wednesday. There are so many places to dine, especially if you have transport. Alternatively there are shops and a well stocked supermarket at Mijas Flores just before you reach the apartment. We also did some shopping at the local Lidl.

Our New Year's Eve was spent a the exclusive Sloane's Bistro. It wasn't cheap but the meal was exceptional as was the service. We can recommend this for a special occasion. We relied upon taxis for this evening. We pre booked our taxi at the rank near the shops in Mijas Flores but he was unable to return for us as it was out of his area. We were slightly concerned we would have trouble getting a return taxi New Year's Eve but there was no problem. The restaurant phoned for us and one arrived within five minutes.

We had a lovely holiday. It was easy to arrange, the owner's could not have been more helpful, we were given lots of useful information and even had a holiday app which I thought was quirky. Five Stars given, book with confidence.

Owner's Response: Your positive and detailed response about staying in our apartment over the New Year festivities is very much appreciated. We are pleased you found the amenities of a good standard and that the kitchen had all the equipment you could wish for in a holiday rental. It is useful that you found the wheelchair / pushchair access walk from the lifts very pleasant, the path being around the pool area and lit up garden. The communal gardens are always well maintained with sub-tropical plants and are just as interesting at night as they are during the day. You obviously enjoy sightseeing, and made the most of this great location from which to explore the many beautiful places on the Costa del Sol which you visited. We are glad you found our detailed information pack helpful and we look forward to welcoming you back, should you wish to book with us again.
