Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in La Cala de Mijas - Oasis Cala de Mijas
3 bedroom, 2 bath, Private Hot Tub, FREE WiFi, Bikes, PlayStation 3, Pools & GPS

You’ll feel at home the second you walk into our Coral Reef Holiday Rental Apartment. That’s because we've gone all out to make Coral Reef just that—more of a home than a holiday rental apartment.

As you can see, the apartment has a plush, modern Mediterranean style. The open floor plan, private hot tub, and partial ocean-view terraces create an airy, relaxed feel that’s perfect for kicking back after exploring La Cala de Mijas and the rest of the Costa del Sol. When you’re ready to venture out, you’ll find 28,000 square meters of tropical gardens and two expansive saltwater pools in the complex. It’s quite possible to spend the entire day with the pool or the gardens to yourself.

'Coral Reef' Holiday Rental Apartment is stocked with many amenities that other apartments lack. Look in the kitchen cupboards and you’ll find everything you need to cook a mouthwatering dinner (we even have a juicer and a bread maker). We also offer two complimentary bicycles, so you can be at one of the nearby beaches, restaurants, or markets in a matter of minutes. For families with young children, we have plenty of equipment to make your stay easier, including a stroller, a baby monitor, and extra bottles.

'Coral Reef' self catering holiday rental apartment has three bedrooms: one master suite with a queen-size bed (double), one guest room with two queen-size bunk beds, and a daybed on the terrace that sleeps two. The terrace converts into a fully-enclosed room with air conditioning, blackout curtains, and a foldaway glass covering. The master bathroom includes a double sink, a bathtub, and a shower. The shared bathroom has a mosaic tile shower and Italian marble countertops and walls.

My name is Sophie and I was born and raised outside of Stockholm, Sweden. I love riding horses, traveling, and exploring. My Norwegian husband and I currently reside in Washington, US, and fly back home to Europe at least a couple of times per year.

Sophie Idh purchased this apartment in 2010

When we were looking for a home to purchase in Costa del Sol, we searched all the cities, up and down the coast. When we found La Cala de Mijas it was no longer a question of what town to buy in, but what apartment complex to call our home. We quickly found Oasis Cala de Mijas, which is a high quality, low quantity complex, built with care and consideration. Only 30% of the property is built upon, leaving 28,000 square meters of well kept sub-tropical gardens, including 2 saltwater pools.

Our two apartments are located on the 2nd and 3rd floor, both accessible via an elevator. The entire complex is handicap accessible, and ideal for families traveling with children. You do not need a car while staying here, as you can walk from the apartment to just about everything, including the beach, bars, golf, restaurants, retails stores and more.

We love the architecture in our complex, with traditional Spanish style, combined with a modern look. Italian marble is all around, and the layout flows seamlessly from one room to another. We have included all the features that you would expect to find in your neighbor's home, so it is not just another holiday rental. Some of these features include:

- Private Jacuzzi

- Fully stocked kitchen applieances

- PlayStation 3

- Board games

- Beach and pool toys

- WiFi (ADSL Wired and Wireless Internet, for FREE)

- Secure, underground parking space

We hope to have you as a guest in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions.

6 of us stayed here and we all loved every minute of our holiday. Property was lovely, clean, tidy. We loved the hot tub! The area is lovely too, close to the shops and beach. Sally and Chris were so helpful and answered any questions we had, they made us feel so welcome.
We are looking to return in 2014!
Owner's Response: Thank you Nicola for staying with us in our La Cala de Mijas based holiday rental home. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and can't wait to have you back again in 2014. You were excellent guests.

Best,

We rented the apartment for 3 months for a language immersion program for our children. The apartment was well equipped and beautifully decorated. We loved the hot tub and high speed internet. We were walking distance to grocery stores, restaurants, the beach, golf and mountains. Fabulous stay and Einar was extremely accommodating! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to share your experience with future guests. I think you started a trend with the language school in La Cala de Mijas. We have had many other guests stay after you, who all wanted to learn Spanish. No one has stayed as long as you did, so you still have the record!

We hope you come back to stay with us in La Cala de Mijas in the near future. Our holiday rental home is always there for you (unless it is booked, of course :) )

  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
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!
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.

A Great Week Holiday!

  • Review Submitted: 13-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
Everything was better than we could have expected. We had a great week of holiday!
The apartment was excellent. (rooms, kitchen, Jacuzzi etc.) There is absolutely nothing to complain about.

Most of the time we spend at the pool enjoying the sun. We visited shopping centers and in Fuengirola and Malaga. (and of course old town in Malaga)
Every evening we visited to local restaurants. Some of us even sang karaoke at The Henry’s bar.

Hopefully we can get back to spend the holidays in your apartment.

Thank you for the excellent accommodation and greetings to Sally!

Best apartment by far in La Cala de Mijas

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 13-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2012
A superb Luxury apartment with every conceivable item for a comfortable stay.
Well equiped kitchen with top of the range white goods and plenty of crockery and glasses etc for a family of 8.

Modern dining area and sitting room, again with lovely comfortable safa and chairs.
Top of the range TV with HD, Humax satelite system and playstation 3, enough to keep the kids and a few adults happy. Channels all in English.

All bedrooms were an excellent size and modern with excellent mattresses. Kids will love the huge bunkbeds.
Main bedroom also has a en suite with a power shower and HOT running water which is a novelty in Spain.
Then there is the extension room which is excellent for guests who want a breeze running through the room, although the air conditioning is excellent throughout the whole apartment. This room also has the Glass curtains which open fully to let in the air and light and a fantastic view of the sea.

What better than a long day on the beach and coming back to the Hot Tub and have a large gin and tonic. Absolute HEAVEN !!

The free parking space was also a boon and had the addition of secure parking and a security guard patrolling the premises 24 hours. The owners were easily on hand by phone and email and kept us updated throughout the whole booking process.

I would highly reccommend this apartment to anyone looking for a home from home that has everything required for a fantastic stay and is within walking distance of the lovely town and beach area. La Canasta cafe is excellent for beers and a snack, Grill de la Cala was great for dinner in the evening, very friendly staff and very good value for money. The small town has plenty of bars, restaurants, banks and supermarkets for anyone who does not want to leave the area or do not have their own transport.

Thank you Einar and Sophie for an excellent holiday.

Owner's Response: Hi John and Eddie,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at our self-catering holiday rental home in La Cala de Mijas with out future guests. It greatly helps! We love La Canasta Cafe too, and try to stop by each and every time we are in town. Grill de la Cala is new to us, so thank you for the recommendation. Next time!

Hope to see you again soon.

Owner's Response: "...coming back to the Hot Tub and have a large gin and tonic". Love it! That is exactly why we put the Jacuzzi in there to begin with :) We are so happy that you have decided to come back twice now, and hope for many more visit in the future. La Cala de Mijas has so much to offer and we love the character of the town. The restaurants are waiting for you!

Amazing Home from Home in La Cala de Mijas!

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 31-Aug-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jul 2013
We stayed in Coral Reef apartment in La Cala de Mijas this July, and had such a wonderful time. We arrived at Malaga airport and were able to quickly rent a car. The driving directions to the apartment were very easy to follow and Sally met us at the apartment with a smile. She is such a great host, with tons of knowledge and very friendly.

The apartment has absolutely everything we wanted and needed, plus a lot of extras. We spent every evening in the Jacuzzi with a drink or two. The two saltwater swimming pools are surrounded by very well groomed gardens, and there were plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas. The upper pool felt like a private pool, as we were the only ones there most days.

The first few days we played a lot of golf at a few of the local clubs, including Los Olivos and La Noria Golf Course. There are so many golf courses to pick between, and a great place to rent equipment from just across the main street from the apartments.

Day 3 we had a daytrip scheduled to Morocco. We called the bus tour company, Viator, ahead of time so that they could pick us up in La Cala instead of having to drive to Fuengirola. I would highly recommend the daytrip to anyone who wants to be able to say that they have been to Africa, and those who want to buy rugs or spices. You need to REALLY do some negotiating if you want a good deal. Start at a 1-4 of the asking price and go from there. You do need more than a 1 day trip if you want to do some exploring. For a euro you can ride a camel!

For great clothing shopping Plaza Mayor has everything you need. Remember that if you live outside of the European Union you can get all of your sales taxes back. Sophie sent us an article about this which came in handy. The taxes are given back at the airport and the process is much more complicated than what it needs to be.

One evening we went on a harbor sailing tour of the Puerto Banús marina. What a place that was. You need to hold on to your credit card so it doesn't overheat. The place is pricey.

We would highly recommend this apartment and La Cala de Mijas itself to anyone, from families with babies and toddlers, to a romantic getaway. We will be back!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your stay and review. We are glad you got to see Morocco on your trip as well. It makes it easy when it is located just 40 minutes from Spain.

Thank you for being a great guest. We hope to have you back again soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such an informative and excellent review. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay and that you found everything to your liking. The Snack Attack that you mentioned is an excellent breakfast, brunch or lunch place that we have visited many mornings. The Lidl is less than a year old, and makes life so easy for those who stay in the apartment.

Thank you again for your stay, and we hope to have you back again soon.
