There is also a bus stop outside the apartment where you can get the bus to Puerto Banus. The apartment inside had everything we needed with great WiFi and sky sports tv! The kitchen had everything you need to cook a nice meal in if you wanted although you are so close to some great places to eat out! Thanks Robin

You can tell that the owners spend a large part of the year there themselves, given the attention to detail and care taken looking after the place. Arguably the best aspects of the property are the outdoors areas. The pool is large and much used in Summer months. The various terraces house a professional quality bbq, games (table tennis, pool), quiet sitting spots, and several different places to eat. The garden is lush and full of every fruit tree you can imagine! It's just a short drive to the local beaches, family ones like Siroko, and sceney ones like Nikki Beach. But you can also walk or run out from the villa and quickly be up in the Sierra's feeling a million miles away from the bustle of the coastal strip. Certainly recommended!
