Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Calahonda - The Spanish Olive

Huge 3BR, 2BA flat - Sea views from every room - FREE WiFi, X-Box, Pools

Beautiful three bedroom, 2 bathroom flat. Every bedroom has seaviews and is very spacious. Two of the bedrooms walk out to the terrace. Something that sets this flat apart from many places in Spain is the peacefulness you'll encounter. You won't hear loud motorcycles buzzing by in the middle of the night nor entire conversations by neighbors. This is a very tranquil, beautiful spot on the coast. Every morning you can hear the birds singing and have your coffee/tea on the terrace with a breathtaking view.

The master bedroom, the 'Japanese Retreat', has an attached bathroom and comes complete with king size bed, wardrobe and flat screen TV in the room. The second bedroom, the 'African Safari', has a queen size bed and walks out to the terrace. The third bedroom, the 'City Escape', has a double bed along with a sofa bed that turns into a double bed. The living room and dining area are completely covered with windows, so the views are amazing. The kitchen and laundry room are towards the back of the flat. The kitchen has granite countertops and is fully equipped. The washer is in its own large room off the kitchen with an open air breeze to allow your clothes to dry throughout the night.

Enjoy complimentary toiletries, from Bath and Body Works, that we hope will help to make your stay even more comfortable and stress free.

There is a garage spot reserved for your stay and is only a few feet from the elevator that takes you to the flat. There is a nice pool as well as a children's pool and play area that is open to our guests. The entire residential area, including pathway to pool, is handicap accessible.

Our flat is about a five minute drive down to the beach. There is a small grocery store and incredible restaurant that is about 1/2 mile away. Closer to the beach, there are many other options for restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies and shopping areas.

We offer free wireless internet throughout the house and will have the instructions and password waiting at the house for you. Our flat is baby and toddler friendly that includes the following amenities: high chair, toddler table & chairs, crib & bottle warmer. We also have an X-box and games for your enjoyment.

Additional services we offer are airport pickup/dropoff as well as welcome food packs (great for late night arrivals!).

Our flat is our home that we're opening to people like you. We had originally planned to live there, but due to a job opportunity my husband and I had to move back to the U.S. We hope you can enjoy it since we can't! :)

About Jenni Christopher

Jenni grew up in a small American town called Decorah (Iowa). After graduating high school, she went to college for graphic design and Spanish (random mix, we know). She met the love of her life, Jose, in New York City. Jose grew up in Fuengirola, Spain (lucky guy). We had a beautiful little wedding ceremony in Mijas Costa, of course, where else? Now we're working through the U.S. immigration process (not fun) so Jose can move to the U.S. We both LOVE to travel and we're so happy that we found our wonderful flat so we can go back and visit.

Jenni Christopher purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jenni Christopher chose Calahonda

We settled in this beautiful little part of southern Spain, Calahonda because we fell in love with the beauty of the flat, the undisturbed views (we might be biased, but we have the best views of the coast). It's completely private, unlike many flats in this area. Due to a great job opportunity, Jenni moved back to the U.S. and Jose is working through the U.S. immigration process. So we've decided to rent our home in Spain.

What makes this apartment unique

Our flat has sea views from every bedroom. You can hear the birds singing every morning. It is a wonderful place for families or couples alike. We wouldn't choose any other place to live, because the privacy and tranquillity that our flat has to offer is not to be found anywhere else. Every room is oversized, including the bathrooms. It's not a typical Spanish flat with tiny spaces.

Huge #exotic with themed rooms: Japanese Retreat, African Safari, City Escape. Completely private - enjoy the stunning, undisturbed views of the sea all to yourself. Don't miss out on our one-of-a-kind apartment in Costa del Sol. Complimentary toiletries supplied. Shuttle service available.

Modern - quiet - all you need

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment was great for our family of 5. Modern, large bedrooms and quiet. We loved the terrace with the great view. Great acess from the garrage and straight up to the apartment. The only thing that was somewhat annoying was the aircondition. It turned itself of every 2 hours, which was a struggle every night. Our stay was in July when it is very hot, so we had to get up 2-3 times every night to turn it on. Other than that - a great stay!

It was awesome and so comfortable.

  • 5 out of 5
We were thrilled with our time at the Spanish Olive . All the comforts of home were there. Despite having windy weather we enjoyed the terrace and the central location of this unit. Everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was there. Jeni and Sally who coordinated all of our creature comforts.

Indoor parking , swimming pool , English TV, Wifi SuperSol nearby . What more could you want?

I would highly recommend this to couples or families and you wont be disappointed.

BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 out of 5
First off, we can't express enough what a good time we had here. The apartment was clean and the perfect size for our party of eight; which consisted of 4 adults and 4 children (ages ranging from 2 to 9). Aside from the gorgeous pool, there were plenty of activities, to include board and electronic games, to keep the children occupied. We were provided with a high chair and portable crib which was very convenient. The views were absolutely amazing and I could have stayed out on the balcony the entire time!

I do recommend anyone traveling here has their own transportation as the apartment sits up on the side of the mountain. With that being said, the drive is beautiful and relatively easy. We enjoyed Cabopino Beach which is just a short drive down the highway. There are two grocery stores and multiple restaurants close to the apartment. We took day trips to Nerja and Ronda and I highly recommend both places as they were both stunning.

Jenni has been amazing and sent an abundance of information prior to us traveling there, so we already had a plan in mind of things we wanted to do and see. Also, Sally was wonderful and was available to us throughout our entire stay for any questions that should arise. Overall, I think this place is perfect and I am so thankful that we were able to stay here and experience the Costa Del Sol.

Très bon séjour entre amis

  • 4 out of 5
Les propriétaires sont extrêmement sérieux et professionnels, ils nous ont contacté par mail du début à la fin, nous donnant un maximum d'informations pour préparer notre voyage. Sur place, nous avions une personne que nous pouvions contacter en cas de besoin, qui a été présente quand il le fallait, et qui a su répondre à nos questions.
L'appartement est grand est très confortable, mais il est legèrement éloigné de la cote et des commerces, il est donc plus pratique d'avoir un véhicule sur place.
L'appartement a été refait a neuf, joliement décoré, avec de grandes pièces et de nombreux rangements en cas de long séjour ainsi qu'une grande terasse sur laquelle se retrouver. Le seul petit bémol concerne un léger manque d'ustensiles en cuisine, (en tout cas pour huit personnes) mais ce petit problème risque d'être réglé rapidement.
Je recommande cet appartement sans hésitation pour des familles ou des groupes d'amis qui viennent se reposer, visiter, .. Peut être moins pour ceux qui espèrent faire la fête sur la cote régulièrement.

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour l'examen et pour attirer notre attention sur le manque d'ustensiles de cuisine. Nous avons entièrement réapprovisionné la cuisine avec plus de casseroles, poêles, vaisselle et ustensiles. Nous sommes tellement heureux que vous avez apprécié votre séjour et nous espérons vraiment que vous vous bénéficierez à nouveau à l'olive espagnole. Meilleurs voeux à vous tous!

Beautiful, Authentic, Lots to do

  • 5 out of 5
We had an excellent time at the Spanish Olive on our 5 day long weekend trip from Zurich. The view from atop the mountain where the flat is located is amazing, especially in the morning. The drive down to the restaurants in Calahonda is easy, it is well connected to the highway and there are many grocery stores with a 5-10 minute drive. The drive up to the flat is a little farther than other places, but the view a quietness of the mountain is worth it.
At first I was a little apprehensive about driving in Spain, as most places we go in Europe we tend to book a hotel in the center of the city and then use public transportation. However, the driving was very “American” and easy to do once you get used to it. Getting a car also opens up so many possibilities that you could not do on public transport like Gibraltar, Rhonda, Cadiz, Tangier and many beaches.
The flat was very roomy and always felt we had more space than we needed. They even had a xbox 360 to work off the sunburns. Huge balcony and great rooms.
Overall we would highly recommend and will be coming with our friends from Zurich.
