“Great Apartment, great View and a great time was had by all”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This apartment lived up to and exceeded our expectations. It was clean, well appointed and presented with all of the home comforts. A full kitchen if required with a washing machine. Marble floors throughout with both the on suite bathroom and the shower room tiled with marble. The beds are as we prefer very firm with duvets if required. Plenty of wardrobe space, we always take extra cloths hangers with us but they were not required this time. A 32” colour TV with Sky in the lounge area (don’t forget to take your Sky card if you want the full service but there are plenty of channels available without it). The balcony is roomy with 2 sun beds, a table with 4 chairs, an umbrella would have been useful as first thing in the morning if you’re having your breakfast on the balcony the sun settles right where the table and chairs are positioned, but we were able to reduce the glare by moving them slightly behind a support pillar. The balcony has spectacular views of the mountains and the coast. The balcony overlooks the pool which as already stated in other reviews only has 4 sun beds but while we were there we were mostly down there on our own, it was very quite some days you did not see anyone else all day, but as the apartment is part of a golf course complex I guess that some of the occupants were down playing golf, and some of the apartments were empty.
The apartment has a safe and also a simple CCTV independently monitored alarm system. Full Air-conditioning is also available to cool you down after a day out in the sun.
You will in my opinion need a car as the apartment is about 3 miles from La Cala De Mijas town centre, we spoke to someone who had walked down to the town and it took them an hour, as the complex is uphill behind the town you would really need to take a taxi back unless you are a really keen walker. There is a secure underground car park beneath the apartments which keeps the car both secure and cool, this is accessed by using a remote on the bunch of keys.
The apartment is convenient situated close to the A7 coast road so all of the nearby resorts and restaurants are easily accessible by car or Taxi. We went up to Ronda for the day which was really nice but you need to ensure that there is no market or Fiesta scheduled when you visit as parking can be a problem the bridge, gorge and the old architecture are worth the visit, don’t forget your camera. Parking can also be difficult in La Cala De Mijas but we were always able to find a space after doing a tour of the small town quite good to use up the fuel on a full/empty hire car. We went up to Mijas Pueblo several times and there is a multi storey car park one Euro for all day parking. Fuengirola is also difficult for parking, Benalmadena Harbour area is quite nice and has a pay by the hour car park.
We had dinner a couple of times in our favourite restaurant the Mijas Playa in La Cala De Mijas and also by recommendation of the very nice couple Monica & Sean Peck (who are the owners representatives in Spain and will oversee your visit) we visited El Gusto in La Cala De Mijas where we had a Sunday Dinner with all of the trimmings. They also offer an A la Carte Menu and I had a Sole on the bone one evening which was really good, the food is very good but not the cheapest in town. I would recommend this apartment without reservations if you want a reasonably priced comfortable stay in a quieter area of the Costa Del Sol. It’s just the place to chill out with a glass of wine or a beer or two.

“Lovely apartment within easy reach of local attractions”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

My wife & I & our 2 daughters aged 16 & 12 stayed at Cala Nova Sea Golf in August 2012. We were met in the nearby village of LaCala by Monica & Sean from the management company who showed us to the apartment which was about 5 minutes drive away & explained how everything worked. The apartment was very clean & nicely decorated & had everything that we needed for a comfortable & relaxing holiday. The apartment can be accessed by lift from the private parking garage which was great from a security point of view. There is a choice of swimming pools the one nearest to the apartment is a good size and was very clean and although sun beds were limited the apartment owner provided 2 for our use. Car Hire is not really a must if you don't intend going too far afield - Taxis into LaCala where there is a nice beach, good selection of bars & restaurants as well as supermarkets are plentiful & easy to book & only cost around 10 euros each way. Thanks for a lovely holiday
