“Summer holiday”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We loved the apartment and choice of pools. The terrace area was spacious with plenty of chairs and large table. It was good to have the wifi and tv especially for the kids in the evening.
Well equipped kitchen which was very clean. Bedrooms were a good size and nicely decorated.
We hope to return next year!!

Thank you for your response, I do appreciate your comments. I make it clear in the terms and conditions that charges for small breakages such as you mention will not be levied, all that is aksed is that guests bring any breakages to the attention my agent so that replacements can be made for my next guest. The withholding charge of GBP50 in this case was made due to the extra cleaning and garbage disposal charges that were passed on by the cleaners. I understand it can be upsetting when this is done and that is why it is only when considerable expense is incurred that I consider it. In fact this is the only incident of withholding funds that has occurred.
However I thank you for your recommendation to install WIFI and non Spanish TV channels and this is now included.
The apartment was repainted and renovated in July 2017.
If my guests find anything that is not to their satisfaction I urge them to bring it to the attention of my agent in Spain who will make it right.

“5 star relaxation with quality amenities, peaceful and lovely views.”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment was lovely, clean and spacious with a lovely view. Really perfect for a relaxing holiday. It was great for the kids too as there are 5 pools to choose from to keep them busy. La cala de Mijas is quite central too as there I plenty to do if you have a car. There is a golf course 5 mins away also.

Overall we thought the place was wonderful and I would recommend it to young families or couples wishing to have a quiet relaxing holiday.

I would definitely stay there again

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A beautiful apartment, extremely clean and everything you could need!
Andy, Monica and Sean were all very helpful and even arranged for a high chair and travel cot for our baby.
Communication with them was very easy from the beginning and we were made feel very welcome.
The apartment is just under a 10min drive from la Cala so it's handy to have a car, there is secure under ground parking, but it's wonderfully peaceful and has spectacular views to enjoy from the spacious balcony!

We spent a fabulous holiday all in all!

“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.
