The owners Leonard and Mel are great, very welcoming and friendly and Stacey who handles the booking arrangements is fantastic, nothing is too much trouble. The location is perfect, bars and retuarants within walking distance. If you want to leave your car at home there is a cab rank and bus service within a 5 minute walk. The accomodation is very nice, you will feel at home here as well as on holiday. I cannot recommend the experience highly enough. Andy

                                                                                                      We were fortunate to find this property and booked a 2 month stay from Mid October to Mid December 2016 For the first month the weather was ideal, with warm days and cooler nights. Second month the weather was wetter and cooler but we were able to sit out on the lovely roof top terrace most days. Much better than England. Location of the apartment is very good, being a 15 minute stroll down hill into the beautiful Estepona, with many lovely restaurants and bars. Also very close to the Carrefour for shopping, which has pretty well everything you could need. I personally preferred the Mercadona and many fresh fish shops which are on the edge of town where prices and products are more Spanish. Particularly good for people watching. The apartment had everything you could want in terms of facilities but we particularly appreciated the English TV which made it seem like a home from home. Wifi worked well. Car parking under the apartment block was also very useful on the odd wet day or when bringing back shopping We had a couple of very minor issues that Alex resolved for us very quickly. Very helpful indeed and much appreciated. The only downside to me was some road noise, due to the fact that I live in such a quiet area myself. After a little while you don't notice this and it wouldn't put me off returning. I believe it was a five star break in a five star apartment
