“Amazing apartment, complex and location!!!”
Reviewed 18 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Just returned from a weeks stay at Casa Carla with my wife, 18 year old daughter and 8 year old son, The apartment was everything we could have wished for and more very freshly decorated and spotlessly clean with everything you could possible need including free wi-fi which was an added bonus especially for my teenage daughter! We also loved the large terrace where you can relax and enjoy some of the high temperatures without having to leave the apartment.
The complex has 2 swimming pools we used the large pool which has a life guard from 11.00am until 7.00pm which is great if you have young children.
There are plenty of lovely bars and restaurants at your door step with plenty of choice. There is a large supermarket next door to the complex which has everything you need.
The Port is 15 minutes walk down the road where you will find lots of bars, restaurants and designer shops of course!!
Overall could not fault our holiday from the stunning apartment, lovely complex and beautiful resort definitely a 10/10 from us!!
Cant wait to return!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share how delighted you were with the apartment, complex and variety of restaurants and bistro bars available nearby. It's this combination of amenities and high standard and of what's on offer that makes the apartment the perfect holiday location - also the reason why so many previous guests return year after year!

“Great Holiday - Excellent location!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at La Maestranza. The apartment is spotlessly clean, spacious and very well equipped. The wifi is excellent. It is only a 20 minute walk into Puerto Banus where there are many upmarket bars, restaurants and of course shops. There are, however, plenty of restaurants within a 10 minute walk from the apartment and still great food. We walked from Puerto Banus to Marbella along the beach which was lovely and caught the boat back. We also had a car for the duration of the holiday and travelled to Istan, Mijas and had a day trip to Ronda which is definitely worth a visit. We sunbathed at both pools - there is a larger pool and a smaller one - which can get quite busy and noisy but still lovely grounds. The complex is well maintained and very clean. There is a supermarket literally next door which is very well stocked. We travelled with our 18 year old daughter and can thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Thank you for your lovely review! Yes, there is so much to see and do just 20 minutes away in the Port and you're so right that it's not necessary to venture to the Port for an evening out. There is an abundance of lovely restaurants and bistros within 10 minutes of the apartment and also some very nice eating places in the immediate vicinity of the complex. Planet Beach, which is newly opened, is receiving some wonderful reviews and it's on our doorstep! As you say, so many lovely places to visit if you have a car. We have visited Mijas and Istan too - just beautiful! Ronda, we still have to do!

“Beautiful appartment in a fab location!”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Casa Carla provides the ideal location for a very relaxing holiday. It's an ideal distance from the hustle and bustle of Puerto Banus - a comfortable walk into the marina area and the many and varied, including high end shops. The complex has two swimming pools which were just fab....we used the smaller one which was not at all crowded.

The apartment itself is beautiful...a home from home with everything you could imagine you would need. It's very tastefully decorated, beautifully clean and very well furnished...very comfortable. Loved the large terrace ...we spent much of our time enjoying the warm temperatures outside. Loads of items to keep people and children (if they're there too) busy. E.g games, books, beach equipment , tv and radio. A lot of thought has gone into making this the ideal holiday base.
Some shops and restaurants very close to the complex which felt very safe and was beautifully maintained.
Looking forward to returning in the future.

Thank you for your review!
We always find our time on La Maestranza relaxing so it's lovely to hear that others enjoy it too!
We aim to maintain the apartment to a high level of comfort, a level of comfort that we would expect if holidaying away from home - so really good to hear that you were in a home from home :)

“A most relaxing and enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I stayed at la Maestranza with a couple of friends and it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays I've had. The apartment is lovely - spotless, spacious, extremely comfortable and is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a shopping trolly to bring back your wine and water from the supermarket! When in the apartment, we spent most of our time on the balcony with its lovely comfortable furniture.

The complex itself is kept beautifully clean and the garden areas are well tended.

There were plenty of restaurants and bars in the locale to enjoy, which were quieter (and less expensive) than the bustle of Puerto Banus, and the local supermarket is situated right beside the secure complex. However, a tax ride back from the port or the beach was only around 7 euros and there's also a bus service.

There are two swimming pool areas and we tended to go to the quieter, smaller pool to relax as there was shade from some trees if we wanted to escape the heat of the sun.

For a week chilling in the sun, away from the hustle and bustle, this was perfect!

“A lovely stay”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a wonderful break at this apartment. First of all I'd like to thank the owner Carol for her responses to our emails and accommodating the many high chair/cot and other requests we had for our seven month old baby.

The apartment is exceptionally clean, much larger than you would expect and what was really welcome was the vast amount of facilities within it; a vast array of English TV channels, Wifi, a large terrace, hairdryers, straighteners, washing machine, dryer, even a hand blender for pureeing my little one's food. This owner has literally thought of everything.

The complex is lovely with a heated pool for children. There is a supermarket and bar right next door as well as a selection of nice restaurants including the amazing Planet Beat (great for informal Mexican dining) further up the road.

Then just a few minutes walk away on Av del Prado are some absolutely superb restaurants including the Curry Leaves Indian restaurant and the Vino y Mar tapas bar. The signage on the latter makes you want to avoid it but once you're up the stairs you are faced with the most beautiful terrace with amazing views of Nueva Andalucia and to top it all of the most amazing Spanish food I have ever eaten.

It's a pleasant 20 minute walk down into Banus but we much preferred everything in the immediate vicinity of Nueva Andalucia. If you're looking for a home from home with local amenities, just book this place. Not one bad word to be said.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your time at Casacarla. It's lovely to hear that your break here was so enjoyable! Thank you too, for your eating places recommendations. We are so fortunate to have these restaurants, bistros and bars on our doorstep. Planet Beat has only recently opened, so we are very much looking forward to trying it out on our next trip :) And as for your little one ...... it was easy and a pleasure for me to accommodate your baby requests!

Thank you to Mr and (the new!) Mrs Flaws for taking the time to post your review - and there can be no better feedback than having previous guests returning for another stay! The apartment is indeed a winner as we have guests who have returned each year since we started offering our holiday home for rental, some eight years ago now, and they've just booked again for next year! You're right - the location of the apartment with regards to the proximity of local restaurants, bars and shops is one of its many great features. Looking forward to welcoming you both back sometime soon to Casacarla!

“Perfect Spanish getaway”
Reviewed 22 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were delighted with our stay in Casa Carla and would highly recommend it to others - we couldn't fault it!

The apartment is beautifully furnished and maintained, whilst also being well set up for the self-catering traveller. It's an ideal base in which to relax and unwind, whilst also taking advantage of the very well maintained complex and surrounding facilities.

A selection of shops and bars are in easy reach and larger restaurants only a shot walk away. The town center can be reached on foot or by taxi and we greatly enjoyed exploring the area and local beaches.

Lastly a big thank you to Carol and her hospitality.
