Spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom air conditioned penthouse apartment in Cabopino

About Paul Bell
Originally from Nottingham, I moved to Spain in 2005 after a long career in IT in the UK. I love the laid back lifestyle out here and obviously the climate, especially in the winter months. I enjoy photography, cycling, motorcycling, cars, hiking, travelling and spending time with my two daughters when possible.
Paul Bell purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Paul Bell chose Elviria
When I came to Spain looking for property I was looking for a place near Puerto Banus - With hindsight I'm absolutely delighted that I never found it. Cabopino has everything for a relaxing break with great beaches, restaurants, bars and a lovely small marina. And is away from the hustle and bustle of the livelier areas with all the associated noise and traffic. Yet it's just a 15 minute drive to the center of Marbella and Puerto Banus for the times you want to visit.
What makes this Apartment unique
Without doubt the biggest feature of this penthouse apartment is its large sunny sea view terraces. Most guests are surprised at the size of the terraces. The terraces wrap all the way around the apartment in a U shape with large East, South and West facing areas ensuring there is not a minute of the day the terraces are not in the sunshine! We do have a shade you can pull out when you have had enough! The size of the apartment itself is also far larger than most, with each of the 2 bedroom suites located in opposite corners, it is a great layout offering privacy to both rooms. Add in the fact you are a 10 minute walk to the beaches, marina and restaurants and it's a great place to be.

This is a top class accommodation, we've stayed in many similar properties but this is the best. Really don't want to recommend to anyone else because we want to come back ourselves. Our host Paul had kindly provided a welcome pack of food and drink so we did not need to rush out shopping. Paul's responses to emails before we arrived were always quick and his information factual and true, making for a most reassuring holiday. We arrived over 2 hours late but he was most understanding and still made us feel incredibly welcome. Every detail about the apartment was explained to us making it easy for us to quickly settled in. By far the best feature is the amazing space outside which was fully equipped with chairs, tables, loungers, cushions, sunshades in fact far more than we had expected but there still remained so much space. You get the sun all day. Even when sitting you can see the sea, which is a bonus. If you're worried about the road noise don't be, this apartment is a good distance from the road but close enough for quick access to the local shops and the sites. Great TV with good internet access and lots of DVD's. Loads of books to read and box games. We had a great time and really enjoyed our stay and are looking to rebook later in the year. Thanks again to our host Paul for a great stay.
Thanks very much for your review Yvette,
Very kind words. Pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to greeting you out here in the sunshine again soon.
We have recently returned from our February break within this property and absolutely loved it. The property is exactly as described, the owner is 100% efficient with his information supplied and response where we would not hesitate to recommend to anyone considering booking this penthouse.
Very well equipped, huge wrap around sun terraces, which were able to take advantage of the winter sun during our time. Easy location to find, quick access to Marbella, local beaches etc. For those who enjoy outdoor life, the boardwalk to La Cala de Mijas is within easy access, allowing extended walks or beach-side running (my wife loved this aspect of our stay most mornings).
We have returned to the Calahonda / Cabopino area on numerous occasions, already looking forward to our next visit. We would return to this property without hesitation, how frustrating that numerous people have already beaten us to the majority of 2019 dates!!
Huge thanks to Paul for a brilliant stay and memorable holiday.

Many thanks for the review and pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. Hope the fishing was good too!

Great place to stay!
We stayed here for 9 nights in mid January. It’s a fantastic apartment, very well equipped and spacious, with sun terraces on three sides and views towards the sea. We had plenty of sunshine and it was lovely to soak up some winter sun. It’s a 10 minute walk to the beach and to the small port of Cabopino which has a selection of restaurants and bars. It’s also well placed for visiting other towns like Estepona, Mijas Pueblo and Marbella. We loved Marbella with its narrow streets and orange trees. You get some amazing sunsets in this area and you can actually see the coast of North Africa. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay here again.
Many thanks for the kinds words Laurie. It was a pleasure to meet you both and I hope to greet you out here in the sunshine again soon :-)
A spacious luxury property, perfect for a young family
A fantastic property, beautifully decorated with stunning views from the balcony.
We visited the property with my 2.5 year old and 3 month old daughters. The property was well equipped to make our stay comfortable and convienant. There was plenty of room for the travel cot provided to go in either the master bedroom or second bedroom. On arrival Paul had stocked the fridge with family friendly goodies to see us through till we could get to the supermarket/cafes/restaurants. The dishwash, washing machine and microwave made the stay easy and the lift gave easy access to the property with all the gear that goes with kids. There was so much space in each room that we could comfortably spread out, play and not desturb the rare lie-ins.
There is so much to do in the area, beautiful beaches, play parks, fish to feed at the port, excellent restaurants, tapas bars (and a cocktail bar for mummy), all of which where so welcoming to families. If you have a car, we loved a day in the mountains and a boat trip seeing dolphins. Paul's guide provided some great local knowledge.
A really lovely family holiday with lots of happy memories. We will be back.
Many thanks for the kind words and pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay :-)
And thanks for leaving the apartment so clean. Much appreciated. I Look forward to seeing you out here in the sun again soon.
Cabopino, located a few miles east of Marbella, is often described as the Costa Del Sol's best kept secret, and the Jewel in the Costa del Sol. There is no better place on the Costa Del Sol for a refined family holiday, or a relaxing break.
Cabopino has it all, greenery, a beautiful quiet marina, surrounded by many fantastic restaurants, nice bars, great family friendly beaches and easy access to the other attractions along the coast. Yet it remains relatively quiet and refined.
The apartment itself is superbly located to allow you to enjoy Cabopino, it is a short 10 min walk to the beaches, Puerto Cabopino marina, Cabopino Golf and the restaurants, yet just far enough back from the night life to be very quiet when you desire tranquillity.
