STUNNING TWO BEDROOM PENTHOUSE WITH FABULOUS, LARGE TERRACE-SEA VIEWS

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Mijas Costa - Riviera del Mar

2 Bedrooms, sleeps 6. 2 Bathrooms

This beautiful Two Bedroom Penthouse is on the 5th floor, with lift, in a private enclosed holiday complex set in lovely manicured gardens, a few minutes walk to the beach. An exceptionally large private terrace offers truly amazing sea views towards North Africa and Gibraltar.

The complex has two pools, toilet area and a poolside snack bar, which is open in HIGH season only. You could not ask for better family facilities.

The penthouse has two bedrooms, Master Bedroom large twin beds and 2nd Bedroom twin beds, + a sofa bed in the lounge. There is a main bathroom and second shower room. Linen and towels are provided.

The lounge has satellite TV and a DVD/CD Player. Also available is access to the internet which costs €30.00 for one week and €40.00 for two weeks, payable to Y-internet.com. The patio doors of the lounge lead onto the huge terrace, with sunbeds, and barbecue, which overlooks the sea as well as the beautiful gardens and pool. The American style kitchen is fully equipped. 2 supermarkets, Beach, Bars, Restaurants are five minutes walk away.

What's to do here?: Riviera del Sol has long been a popular area for Tourists as it has many Bars and Restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. For people who don't wish to drive whilst here, then there is a Bus service which takes you into Marbella or Fuengirola, from Fuengirola you can catch a Bus to Benalmadena or Torremolinos both popular for their beaches and night life. Alternatively, a Bus into Marbella or Puerto Banus takes you to Puerto Banus Market which is very popular with Locals and Tourists alike. Marbella is known throughout the World for the Rich and Famous, who like to spend their holidays here.

If you do decide to drive here, then all the major attractions are close at hand, for golfers there are approximately 60 golf courses along the coast one of which is five minutes away in Miraflores, this is an 18 hole course and very popular. Go-Karting, Fishing, Swimming, snorkeling, Jet skiing and hang gliding plus many coach Trips and Tourist attractions can all be found here.

What Attractions are there?: Selwo Safari Park near Estapona is a lovely place to go for the kids. The BioPark in Fuengirola is a wonderful Zoo which has gone to a lot of trouble to make the animals feel happy in their surroundings, I have been several times and thoroughly enjoyed it. In Benalmadena you have Sea Life which is in the marina and is great fun for adults and children alike. Crocodile Park in Torremolinos is also another place that kids really enjoy. Also, in Aroyo dela Miel is Tivoli World which is a Theme park and great for all the family.

Coach trips to Gibralter, Seville, Ronda, Granada and Malaga are also available. If you like to shop, then The Myramar in Fuengirola or La Canada in Marbella offer all the High Street shops under one roof, beware, you could spend all day here especially in July when all the Sales are on.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a welcome Lynn and Dennis met us at the apartment the location was great

near to shops, restaurants and local transport if you dont want to drive.

The apartment is large enough for a family a good size lounge/diner,and kitchen with 2 bathrooms been a bonus,

and the terrace is enourmous and a real suntrap with great views across to Africa and Gibralter.

We had a few barbecues and some great lunches on the terrace 27 out of 29 days

All in all a good holiday

Thanks Lynn & Dennis

My husband and I were looking for a holiday home and had seen many apartments in Mijas Costa, on the day before we were due to go back to the UK we were shown the apartment in Riviera del Sol, we absolutely fell in love with it and when we moved to Spain lived in it for five years, We now live in a house just up the road but couldn't bring ourselves to sell the apartment so decided to rent it out for the Summer.

Lynn Banks purchased this apartment in 2000

The location is ideal for Marbella and Fuengirola, it is easy to get around if you don't have a car, the Bus stop is in walking distance and there are shops and restaurants all near at hand. The Penthouse is in a well run Community, with lovely gardens and great swimming pool. The apartment has a fabulous terrace with lovely views of the sea, it's ideal for relaxing on the terrace or in the gardens. When we lived there it was like one long holiday, great.

We have the benefit of sharing the costs of running the Community with Crown Resorts, it is kept up to a high standard. The Lounge is very bright and airy with lovely views from the Lounge window, also the Terrace is very big and great for having lunch or dinner on it in the Summer.

GORGEOUS APARTMENT WITH AMAZING VIEWS

  • 5 out of 5
5 of us stayed in this apartment for 2 weeks and I cannot rate it highly enough. It was so well equipped, a real home from home!! The owners Lynn and Dennis are lovely people, always on hand should you need them but never intrusive. The views are to die for and I thoroughly enjoyed watering the beautiful plants and flowers on the huge terrace, whilst taking in the breathtaking views. The complex is lovely, extremely well cared for and has the added bonus of 2 swimming pools and a snack bar. There are lots of bars and restaurants within walking distance and also a couple of supermarkets, so you don't need to hire a car if you don't want to. We did, as we like to go exploring, but the local transport is excellent.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment and everything went smoothly from booking to going home. We really didn't want to do the latter though!!
Thank you Lynn and Dennis for our 2 weeks in your beautiful apartment, can't wait to come back again!

Owner's Response: Jo and Family were a delight to have stay in our apartment, it´s so satisfying when you get extremely appreciative guests stay here. The two teenage boys and girlfriend were very nice and very polite and obviously enjoyed themselves. Jo and her husband Ade are very responsible parents, hence the well behaved teenage lads. Jo watered our plants twice a day and what a lovely show of colour there was after two weeks of her tender care. Thank you Jo, you are obviously a flower lover, you can come here again any time. I would have no hesitation in recommending this Family to any other Holiday Rental Owner, they treated our apartment with respect and kept it clean and are a lovely Family to have in your home.

Thank you for looking after our apartment.

Regards,

Lynn

PERFECT LOCATION FOR A FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
Spend two months in this appartment. It's so well equipped and clean that it makes you feel at home. Everything you need for a holiday is there. Shops, a few restaurants, bus and car rental are just down the road. Despite being on my own, I felt very safe. The property has two nice pools, beautiful gardens and playgrounds for kids. The big terrace of the appartment is truly unique for a holiday appartment. The owners are very hospital and making sure you don't lack anything. When you want to do a lot of trips it's best to rent a car although almost every place can be reached by bus/train as well. The area has beautiful surroundings. (Sevilla, Nerja/Frigiliana, Mijas and Ronda are really nice places to visit)

Owner's Response: Jessica came on the 3rd April, 2014. She was on her own but that certainly did not stop her from making the most of her two months here. She was a lovely person and a joy to have her in our apartment. We would recommend her to any Owner who would like a respectful Renter stay in their property.

Lovely meeting you Jessica.

FANTASTIC FIRST FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
We decided to book a very last minute family holiday in the sun to get away from the Dutch drizzle. It was our first family holiday together with our little two year old boy so naturally we wanted it to be a good one. And boy, we weren't let down!
The apartment was perfect, the view absolutely stunning, and the location fabulous. The only slight negative was that there was a lot of noise from the main road close to the beach. The back of the apartment is very quiet but the front bedroom was quite noisy, so it's worth considering if you're looking for silence...but it didn't bother us particularly and it's hard to get away from main roads in this area.
The two bedrooms worked out well with the little one having his own room and cot. The view from the humongous roof terrace across the pool and out to sea kept me and hubby entertained when the wee one slept. The apartment was just five minutes walk from a lovely clean beach, supermarket, and restaurants, and was situated in landscaped gardens with two pools, mini golf, playground, and a little basketball court. To top it all off, Lynn and Dennis are the nicest most helpful and friendly hosts you can imagine. We were so impressed we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Kathy, Kev and gorgeous little Leo were absolutely lovely, my husband and I fell in love with their 2 yr old little boy Leo, This is a lovely Family and looked after the apartment very well, that´s not easy with an inquisitive little boy but they managed to do this, I would have no hesitation in recommending this Family to any other holiday rental Owner, they are extremely friendly and appreciative of all the facilities that we provided.

Would definitely have them back again.

FABULOUS APARTMENT AND WONDERFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful holiday :) Thankyou so much we had the best ever holiday :) The apartment has everything you could ever need or want and WOW the terrace what views and huge! We spent our days by the pool relaxing watching the children play and make friends. Evenings we watched the sun go down with some of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen then sometimes a walk for a drink at Georges. The supermarkets are nearby and easy to walk to. The beach is lovely and again easy to walk to. There is even a wolf whistling parakeet somewhere nearby that entertained us no end! Lynn and Dennis are nearby and on hand if you need anything :) and are very lovely people. I can't wait to return next year. Thankyou soooooo much for the best holiday ever <3

Owner's Response: Vicki and Alan stayed from 25th August to 3rd September 2013. Their two children James and Immi are lovely and very polite, it was a pleasure having them stay in our apartment. They are a very appreciative family who enjoyed the apartment and everything that we had to offer, we were so pleased that we were able to contribute to them enjoying their holiday, especially as they had had a pretty stressful year, I am pleased that they went home feeling happy and refreshed and wish them all the Best for the rest of the year. I would be happy to have them stay with us again and would be happy to recommend them as guests to any other rental Owners.
My husband and I both like them a lot and hope we see them again. Lynn

Notes:
Contact owner for details on long term bookings during winter season. Although wheelchairs can gain access to the apartment via the lift it does depend on the width of the wheelchairs as to whether or not it can get through the front door, so please check with me as to the measurement of the door. There is a 32 inch flat screen T.V. with a DVD and CD player. Also various Books (novels mostly), and bucket and spade and balls for children. The very large terrace is a sun trap and is a favourite with our guests as it is very private and has fabulous views. There is no charge for high chair and travel cot. It·s ideal for the elderly and those with a slight disability, but you will need to be able to stand to get into the shower.
