Was as the advert said, large two bed flat with more gadgets than my own kitchen. My only issue was we had to find the flat ourselves, stupidly arrived on a Sunday. First argument with hubby over we settled in and had a very enjoyable week. Will definitely visit the area again and would recommend it.
I have just returned from a short break with friends in Estepona, where we stayed at Sheps Spanish.
As other reviews have noted, this venue is in a fantastic location. Ideal for just chilling in the area where there are many bars/restaurants on your doorstep, or venturing a short distance to places like Gibraltar and Marbella.
The apartment is located in a block where you have access to a couple of lovely swimming pools. The communal area approaching the venue needs a lick of pain but this is out of the owners control ( I am informed the owner has informed the management company and this is in hand as we speak ).
Upon opening the front door and going into the venue, you can tell the owner has spent time and money on tastefully renovating this apartment into a lovely family/couples/friends holiday home. It is extremely clean and tidy with a lovely gallery kitchen and an open plan lounge diner with a very homely feel ( flat screen tv…music system etc ) and two very nice size bedrooms. The 2 bathrooms are very modern with large size showers with rain head. There is air con throughout and the venue has a lovely calm feel. When the windows and blinds are down it is extremely quiet so you don’t need to worry about any noise from the outside if you just want to relax indoors.
The large terrace has fantastic views across the marina and you can even see Gibraltar! Fantastic if you just want to sit and chill and do some people watching.
You can tell the owner of this place is proud of it and letting it out as if its his own home rather than a holiday let…That goes a long way!
I would highly recommend staying here and if returning to the area I would definitely stay here again…….full marks!!
Enjoy your stay!
The apartment is renovated to a very high standard and is located right by the marina where there's a great selection of shops, restaurants and bars. On Sundays there is a market right by the marina where we found some great bargains and local gems. A selection of beaches are within walking distance so you're really spoilt for choice! 2 great supermarkets nearby where you can get all your groceries but be aware that you cannot purchase alcohol after 10pm in Spain! The restaurants nearby offer very nice food with a great selection of vegetarian, seafood, fish and meat - something for everyone at very decent prices. There are great breakfast places too if you prefer to eat out, offering both English and Spanish options. The town centre is only a 15-20 minute walk which can be done along the promenade making it a very pleasant walk! Restaurants in town are also very nice but they are pricier and not necessarily better quality than those by the marina. There is a bus stop not far from the apartment from where you can catch the bus to Marbella and Puerto Banús - the last bus to Estepona returns around Midnight or a taxi is around €30. There was 5 of us and we couldn't find a taxi bigger than a 5-seater so be mindful if you're in a group. If you're just after a day trip or two to Marbella the bus is a perfect option! Gibraltar is only a 30 minute drive from there and a must visit if you're so close! The weather couldn't be better, it was sunny and warm not a single cloud in the sky. The perfect place to escape London weather.
All in all I couldn't recommend this place enough; it has the standard of a high star hotel, great location with something to keep everyone happy: relaxation, great food, nightlife, shopping - everything in one place! You really can't get better value for money! We would definitely stay here again!
Just got back from Sheps apartment, excellent holiday apartment was very spacious and modern liked the fact that it was right by the marina and the bars/restaurants close by, Gibraltar was only approx 45mins away, lots of secluded beaches to go to nearby. Would defo book again. Well done Sheps

The flat was very clean and well equiped for a family to stay. Located right next to marina with plenty of restaurants and bars. This was a value for money stay and would recommend to all.
