Puerto Paraiso 1
Stunning, South East facing, air-conditioned apartment ideally situated on the 3rd floor thus providing great views but not too high for vertigo sufferers. Directly overlooking the beautiful Estepona Marina with the local tapas bars and restaurants within an easy 5 minute walk. Access is provided to 2 swimming pools. Two E.C. Blue Flag beaches are an easy 5 minute walk away and Estepona old town with it's many beautiful tree lined plaza's is on the doorstep. The apartment has an open balcony, comfortably seating 4 people, providing panoramic views of Gibraltar, North Africa, the traditional white walled town and the lovely marina. Just perfect for people watching! The apartment is stunningly furnished having recently undergone a full refurbishment. It is comprehensively equipped with all you will need for a short break or long term stay. Our goal has been to provide a home from home for our guests, within one of the most beautiful, unspoiled and typically Spanish areas on the Costa del Sol.
Between 1st October to 31st March all bookings of 4 weeks or more are discounted by 30%.
Gibraltar: Only 35 minutes drive from Estepona (and on the local bus route), Gibraltar is a sunny, VAT-free haven where you can find duty free bargains from electronic equipment & jewellery to leather & perfumes & haggling is encouraged! Make sure you don't miss the spectacular natural caverns of St. Michael's Caves or visit the Ape's Den, home to some of Gibraltar's famous Barbary Apes, the only free-to-roam primates in Europe. Watch out for monkey business as they can be mischievous and have been known to pick the occasional pocket looking for treats.
The Dolphin Trip from the Marina is an excellent day out and very rarely are dolphins not seen.
Puerto Banus & Laguna Village: Puerto Banus is about 25 minutes drive away. It has a large number of designer stores including Versace and Armani. Perfect for millionaire spotting and you may also see a famous face or two in the port as a number of Hollywood stars have summer homes there.
Laguna Village is a stunning high class shopping experience just 10 minutes drive away. Whether spending an extravagant day at the beach club, shopping in the designer stores or spending time in the luxurious bars and restaurants then Laguna Village is the ideal place.
Selwo Safari Park: Only 20 minutes drive away and on the public transport route, Selwo is ideal for the perfect family day out. The park is based on an African safari park and houses 2000 animals from giraffes to panthers in semi-wild conditions. Like Jurassic Park, large open sided lorries drive you through the various animal enclosures and up into the hills above Estepona. There are elephants, bears, hippos and so much more to see. In the summer, cover up as it can get very hot and there is not much shelter.

About Andy Loftus
We have been holidaying in Estepona since 1992 and in 2009 we were lucky enough to be able to leave Manchester and spend more time in Spain. We have been letting guests stay in our apartments for over 10 years and like to think that we now know how to make our guests holidays a special experience; from the simple booking process, to providing detailed directions to the apartment, to the standard of the 'finish' of the apartments and the quality of the complementary welcome pack that we provide. It sounds easy but getting the little details just right is often the making of a stress free holiday.
Andy Loftus purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Andy Loftus chose Estepona
Puerto Paraiso is ideally located overlooking the lovely Estepona Marina and has views to die for! From watching the beautiful sun rise in the morning, to people watching throughout the day it is often hard to tear yourself away from the balcony, but you must, as Estepona has such a lot to offer both in and around the Marina and also in the 'old town' which is an excellent example of a sea-side pueblo blanco.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is furnished with quality, modern and comfortable furniture and is well equipped with all you need to make this your holiday home from home. If you are in any doubt, refer to the review section; 10+ years of 5 star rating is difficult to argue with.

Home from home in Estepona
We recently stayed for a week in Andy's apartment. It really was a wonderful base and felt so homely compared to many holiday lets. We had bad weather the last couple of days of our holiday but really didn't mind being cooped in indoors due to the comfort of the apartment. Great location by the marina with plenty of restaurants to choose from. We really enjoyed our stay in Estepona.
Hi Mel, I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed the apartment. It's a pity about the weather - maybe next time? Regards, Andy.
Well equipped and very Airy and Bright Apartment
Just spent a week here in March and loved the apartment and the location. Andy and Beata have it very well equipped for long stays and we really wished we had divided our time in Spain so that we had at least one of our other weeks here!
The apartment is very well equipped for everything you need to cook in or dine out at the variety of establishments around the Marina. There were high quality towels and sheets and lots of extra things like toilet tissue and paper towels etc.
The kitchen is fully equipped with some spices and oil etc and lots of cookware. You are close by to two supermarkets and in one there is a fresh bakery for baguettes and pain de chocolat which we enjoy with a morning coffee on the balcony. It really is a very first class apartment and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting a long stay in the Estepona area.
It is nice to be located at the marina to see the fishing boats coming and going while enjoying a glass of excellent Rioja and waiting for the sunset!
Thanks Andy and Beata for making our stay comfortable and also to Sue who met us and checked us in and out!
Thank you for your kind review. Beata, Sue and I are really pleased that you enjoyed Estepona and your stay in the apartment, and are especially pleased that you felt that the "little things" that we have added in the apartment made your stay a little more special as we have taken a lot of time in making sure that we think about the needs of our guests.
All the best and please let me know if you wish to return to Estepona again in the future.
The Puerto Paraiso complex is ideally situated in the heart of Estepona's thriving marina with a wide array of restaurants and tapas bars giving the area a truly Spanish feel whilst pleasantly avoiding the 'night club' culture sometimes suffered on the Costa del Sol. Within 5 minutes walk you will find two supermarkets, local shops and beautiful beaches with E.C. Blue Flag status (awarded for cleanliness and safety). Our favourite, Cristo Beach, is a delightful oyster-shaped cove of sheltered, gently shelving sand, ideal for children and is only 5 minutes walk away (250m). In high season the beaches are manned by lifeguards and all have well maintained toilet and shower facilities and a choice of beachfront, traditional, Spanish restaurants (chiringuitos) making it ideal for a family day out. Estepona, due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, enjoys its own micro climate providing over 325 days of sunshine per year and lovely mild winters.
Other Activities: Chilling out in the sun with a cold drink and people watching!
Winter Discounts: From 1st October to 31st March the following discounts apply: - 4 week bookings are discounted by 30% In certain circumstances, booking of less that 7 nights may incur a full weeks charge - please enquire for details.
