We have just returned from a fantastic two week stay at this lovely apartment. We travelled as two families of three (4 adults and two children aged 16 and 12). The apartment was exactly as listed and provided us with everything we could wish for. There were many small points that weren't mentioned that we found useful - the brilliant roller shutters on all windows, provision of mosquito plugs (not that we ever saw any), every kitchen utensil you could ever need, spanish phrase book,etc, etc.
The accommodation was very well presented, and all was explained to us thoroughly by Sally who greeted us on arrival.
The entire complex is very well maintained and all communal areas are very clean. The two pools were both lovely, with sun loungers provided. There are also bathroom facilities at both pools.
Prior to booking any correspondence we had with Sophie & Einar the owners was efficient and professional and very well organised.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone - if you want a holiday close to bars, restaurants, etc this would be suitable as the center of La Cala De Mijas is only about 10 minutes stroll away, but if you want a relaxing do-nothing sort of break, then this is also the place for you! This is a secure property, with a comprehensive door locking system and the complex has a security patrol for added peace of mind.
We used the hot tub most evenings - strangely it seemed to cool us down after days in the scorching spanish sunshine!
There are lots of local facilities from a Lidl supermarket to a British run snack bar (Snack Attack) to a tour/excursion operator (we booked day trip to Seville) - all within 5 minute walk.
We enjoyed various restaurants in the centre of La Cala that catered to all our requirements - we enjoyed Spanish, Italian, British, and Indian food.
We did not hire a car (just didn't fancy driving abroad!), but didn't really need one either. We made good use of the bus service and had a few visits to Fuengirola, to Benalmadina and to Estepona. The taxi services we also good, with very reasonable rates.
Back in the apartment the home entertainment system was very good - full range of TV channels to keep everyone happy - although we did get a bit confused over which remote control to use!!
We would love to return - so we don't want to encourage you too much to try out this apartment for yourselves in case you are lucky enough to book it when we want to go!! Thanks again Sophie & Einar - it was fabulous!
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Teenagers,
Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. We are glad that you got to enjoy everything the apartment has to offer, from the Jacuzzi to the entertainment centre. Your teenagers will be happy to know that we are getting the brand new PlayStation 4 in February. The PlayStation 3 will have to do until then.
You sure go around, even without a car! The tour operators down the street are great, and so is the public transportation. The only advantage to having your own car is that you can stay for as long as you want in all the inland towns. If you just want to tour up and down the coast then the busses and trains are perfect.
Please come back and stay with us again. You were excellent guests.
