The apartment is located in a quiet residential area, but is only 10 minutes walk from the beach and a number of restaurants. (Some at the top of the hill near the golf course and another good selection about 15 minutes walk in nearby Callahonda, close to the management office) Even during the school holidays the complex was very quiet with just a handful of families around the pool. The apartment itself is excellent and is fully equipped with everything you’ll need for a self-catering holiday. When we didn’t eat out, we were able to prepare and cook a number of meals in the apartment’s lovely kitchen and then dined on the balcony overlooking the pool. If you want to go further afield, the local bus stop is very easy and convenient, allowing access to any resort along the coastline. During the 2nd week we hired a car and travelled to the stunning villages of Mijas Pueblo and Ronda, we also had a day out in Gibraltar and the fantastic City of Malaga and also a very enjoyable afternoon at La Canada Shopping Centre near Marbella. We even managed to get to a Malaga football match. (Initially we were a little bit apprehensive about hiring a car and driving in an unfamiliar area, but with the help of the ‘maps app’ on our mobile phone , it was all very simple and we even managed to drop the car off at the airport prior to our flight home, again all of which was very straight forward) All in all we have a great time - thank you to Jason and Debbie for allowing us to stay in your wonderful apartment.
