About Sue and Simon

We have been living in Spain since 2003 and love this area. It offers beautiful beaches, lovely restaurants and bars and a very relaxed way of life. We loved the apartment and its views from the first time we saw it. It offers a great base to stay in a beautiful and traditional Spanish village with lots of amenities on your doorstep. We are nearby in case of any problems and will meet you on arrival with the keys. We look forward to welcoming you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sue

Thank you so much for all your assistance and advice before we set off for our holiday. It certainly helped in ensuring a smooth and stress free journey. Once we arrived we were absolutely delighted with the quality of the accommodation and the equipment at our disposal. And a special thank you for the 50th birthday banners and bottle of bubbly ! Very often it is all the little things that make such a big difference; like the chairs and bed for the beach, the books; the socket adapters (even though we had brought some with us); the well stocked equipment cupboard; and the bits and bobs in the bathroom and kitchen alleviating the need for a mad dash to the shops.

Once again many thanks for all your advice and help. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in such a delightful area. We would certainly have no hesitation in using your services again when we return to visit all the places we didn’t have time for this time around.

Our holiday at Butiplaya

  • 5 of 5

Dear Sue

I know it has taken me a while to send you this message but returning to work after a week takes a while to catch up to.

I just wanted to thank you for allowing us to rent your studio apartment in Cala de Mijas. The location was amazing and the studio was really well equipted, we did not miss anything from home. I love photography and was able to take some really nice pictures of sunrises from the bay windows, I shall send you some when I have a chance to download them into my computer.

What we really enjoyed the most was the quietness, we were very surprised to see that there weren't that many people on the beach and in the building at this time of year ( Easter is suppossed to be peak season ). If I new I was going to have that week next year I would reserve it right way :-))!

Anyways, just a "short" message to thank you both.

best regards,

Roxana and Jose

Owner's Response: Hi Roxana and José Thank you for your note. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and liked the apartment so much. We've tried to ensure that it contains everything needed for a home from home holiday and it's good to know that you thought it did. We hope to see you again next year. Regards Sue

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has all the amenities that you need to enjoy a home from home holiday. The location is what it is all about, walk out of the beach front gate, turn left or right and you will have an enjoyable walk being able to dine in either beach front or more up market restaurants. A very relaxing place to be.

Great time at la Cala de Mijas

  • 5 of 5

Dear Sue and Simon

Had a fabulous stay in your studio.

The location is great close to lots of cafes and restaurants as well as supermarkets

The studio itself is well equipped with everything and more that you could possibly need,right on the beach with sun beds and ombrellas provided and a well kept pool.

We highly recommend it and we defiantly return.

My wife and I had a super time at Sue and Simon's lovely spacious studio apartment. Its location is great, with stunning views over La Cala, well maintained garden and large pool with access to beach and beach bars close by. 10 min walk to centre of rien, nice and flat which suited us fine. Many good restaurants and bars, we enjoyed our night at "Legends" watching Jersey Boys tribute act. We would certainly recommend apartment, hopefully will be back next test.

Wonderful Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Sue and Simon for letting me stay at your wonderful apartment for the month of May.

I found the space to be clean, welcoming, well equipped, and in a great location. The view from the balcony windows is fantastic.

It was very easy to get around to other towns on the Costa del Sol via the bus system and there was a good selection of day trips as well. The town itself was welcoming and the only draw back to the apartment location is how close it is the bakery!!

I have already recommended it to family and friends as a place to check out.

I can't wait to come for another visit!

Owner's Response: Hi Kellie We're so glad you enjoyed staying at the apartment and got around and saw so many things. It's a great base for that. I know what you mean about the bakery! It is dangerously close!!!! We hope to welcome you and your friends and family in the future. Regards Sue

The apartment is on the beachfront at Butiplaya, which is a few minutes walk from the centre of La Cala (either along the beach or the traditional Spanish streets). It is a lively fishing village that retains much of its culture. It has a wide range of Spanish/International shops and bars and a very good twice weekly market. The apartment has a private and tranquil setting and there are some good bars/restaurants from value and cheap to special night out, beach bars and a lovely bakery in the immediate area. Local hotel offers good entertainment to non-residents. La Cala is located between Fuengirola and Marbella. These and Puerto Banus, Riviera del Sol, Torremolinos, Malaga, Benalmadena, Mijas Pueblo etc are all less than half an hour's drive. Seville, Granada, Ronda etc are easy day trips.

No need to hire a car (although there is plenty of parking if you do). The bus service is very good, as are the taxis, both are very reasonably priced. We can arrange an airport transfer.

Other Activities: Skiing is available at Sierra Nevada during winter months - around 2 hours drive
