This was the perfect location, safe and secure and just pristine !
The area is dotted with wonderful little bars and restaurants. We found Cancaleda village to have a host of wonderful outlets for delicious local food and the village is only across the motor way (10 minutes walk maybe)
Estepona is a quick commute from this location. We found having a car was a must. I'm sure there is a good local bus service too but we did not use it.
Visited Casares too, about 30 minutes drive into the hills, the most wonderful village built into the hill side. Stunning views from the Cathedral at the top of the village, however, a very speed walk to the top. Later, sitting in the village square having tapas and wine was incredible and made up for the venture to the top !
Our apartment was wonderful, fully equipped, modern, clean and airy. The roof top terrace was such a bonus, we used it every evening just to take the evening sun and chillax with a few drinks.
We had a wonderful break, made all the more prefect with a comfortable and well appointed apartment. Phil & Jenifer, are the perfect hosts. From start to finish they were informative and helpful. We hope to be back to their lovely apartment again in the not too distant future - Many thanks for eveything
February half term spent here and a great relaxing time we all had whilst the UK was getting hit by storm Doris
Weather here was a bit mixed - but no reflection on the well appointed, furnished and located apartment we were staying in
Was all a bit quiet out of season nearby but this was perfect for our needs - although we did suffer on the first day (Sunday) as all the supermarkets were shut!!
Really enjoyed staying here, it was luxurious, comfortable, clean, quiet and perfect for a relaxing break
Would definitely consider coming back again at the price that we paid
Excellent value for money and a great break - thank you
We chose the apartment as we wanted to relax for a week in the sun. We weren't disappointed. The apartment was great, with everything and more for a restful stay. The private roof terrace was ideal to get the sun in seclusion. The pool was a great size too but just a little cold at first.
Phil & Jenny provided lots of information on everything around for a 'see the sights' stay but we chose to just use some of the info provided to explore the sights of Puerto Banus & Estopona.
Found a lovely restaurant just over the foot bridge 'el carnicero' where we had a lovely meal for our anniversary.
For a relaxing week in the sun this is just the place.
Extremely comfortable 2 bed apartment, easy access to Malaga airport, and good position for trips inland and along the coast.
South facing balcony has the sun most of the day, and the use of the rooftop terrace was a great benefit.
Walking distance to shops and restaurants within about 15 minutes. It is one of the best positioned apartments in the complex. Nice shared garden and pool, and easy walk down to the beach.
Our only disappointment was that there was no beach front promenade to walk along, but we did have enjoyable walks at Estepona and Puerto Banus.
Ate out twice at El Lagado which was not in the suggested eating choices, but we would highly recommend it, 3 courses for 14.80! Top of the village of Cancalada.
Would happily go back to this apartment if we were to return to the area, and we'd have no doubts about recommending it to others.
Really enjoyed our stay. Great location not far from supermarkets and motorway etc. Would definitely reccommend. Property owners really helpful and promptly communicate. Apartment itself really spacious and clean looks better than pictures suggest not that i'm being critical of the pictures; just you'll be pleasantly surprised.

We stayed here for a week around the Easter weekend. First, dealing with Phil and Jenny was a breeze, they answered any issue we had promptly and payments etc and deposit return was dealt with speedily.
The apartment was as nice as it looked; the living room, bedroom (we only used the main one) and bathroom's were all perfect and spotlessly clean. Internet, although not the fastest, is still perfect for catching up on stuff. The TV is a smart TV so has an internet connection for UK channels if you need them - we brought all our films/TV series etc on our Laptop and used an HDMI cable to watch them on the TV. The kitchen is a mix and match of cupboards and does not have a regular over (be aware), but the fridge, microwave and hob are all fine. Washing machine was perfect too. The microwave says it acts as a conventional over, so we bought some frozen chips one night but even after 25 minutes of cooking in it on the oven setting they were still terrible LOL, so we gave up the oven cooking. Oh, well, back to eating out! Plenty of great restaurants about and within walking distance.
Only other small issue was the noise. The Easter weekend brought many Spanish families to the neighbouring apartments and the echoing noise within the tiled and brick apartments of chairs etc at 2 and 3 in the morning was deafining. We had ear plugs but still heard doors slamming during the wee hours. Maybe it was just a busy weekend and not normally like that.
All in all, cleanliness is a huge thing with me and this apartment was spot on. The roof terrace is fantastic and clean also, as is the furniture. I would recommend this apartment to friends and family.
