Definitely NOT "luxury"
We (a retired couple from GB) rented this apartment for 5½ weeks from early January 2017. Communication with the owner, Juan, was easy, but there are inaccuracies in the flat’s description. The stated size of 150m2 presumably includes the roof terrace as the flat itself can only be about half that size. Though 6 people could sleep here, they would find it rather crowded. The location was not “oceanfront”, but a 5-minute walk from the beach. Between the apartment complex and the beach runs the busy N-340 dual carriageway with a half-hourly bus service. There were enough shops nearby to cater for our daily needs.
The apartment itself can only be described as basic; “luxury” would imply superior quality and finish, but we found cheap furniture, 2 dirty sofas (one worn out) and poor hygiene. There was only one working air-con/heater and a dusty electric fire. NB: In January tiled floors can feel very cold, even in Spain. When contacted, Juan arranged for 2 additional heaters and a vacuum cleaner. His response to problems was generally good, but his talk of planned improvements in the future did nothing to make our stay more comfortable.
The brightest and warmest place in the flat was the large conservatory (whereas the lounge felt dark on dull days). It doubles up as dining room/utility, housing a washing machine and dishwasher, both in good working order. On rainy days there was a slow drip from the ceiling, fortunately confined to one end of the room. Unfortunately, noise from the road below was quite troublesome here.
The kitchen is small with only one work surface. The worktop edging has been left open in the corners/at the ends, so crumbs and dust collect there. There were damp, dirty cleaning cloths in some cupboards. The sink had no plug and no washing-up bowl.
The shower room was grubby, cold and damp; there was mould along the edges of the shower pan. I found long black hairs in the drawer that contained the hairdryer. There wasn’t enough hot water for two people to shower in succession.
The bedrooms are adequate in size, but there isn’t much space around the beds. The large double mattress was good, but the two single beds were quite hard.
The roof terrace is accessed externally via two heavy locked doors. We found it uninviting and did not use it. Wi-fi was good, but the TV only offered Spanish channels.
In summary, this apartment was of a rather basic standard and poorly maintained. We would not return.
We have been talked by private massage about it. The first that I want to aclarate is the term "Luxury". I have never use it and It is a problem with the automatic translator. All the photos is real in the Wedsite,and for example I don´t undestand why you write small kitchen, check it in the Website, It is the same that in the photo or no?. You say for example "Though 6 people could sleep here", in summer there are families with 3 children and with a grandmother who have been really good in the apartment. I suppose that they will be better in two apartment but Maybe It will be more expensive. Why you comment it if you are only two person, I don`t understand.
you say " not oceanfront” maybe I have a ploblem with my English and I should say "great sea view", a lot of of my guest talking about it in their comments.
you say "Unfortunately, noise from the road below was quite troublesome here", It is possible but only in the enclosed terrace and if you close the windows It is not annoying, and the living room, 2 room and the rest of the apartment, there's no noise.
In other comments the customer say the same than I
you say "The large double mattress was good, but the two single beds were quite hard". You can say "The large double mattress was luxury bed, but the two single beds were normal beds". the large double mattress is a bed used in the best hotels "bed carpediem korno".
I write in homeaway 75 of the flat, more 75 in the uptairs terrace. It is a terrace ideal for the meeting in the summer, barbacues, chill-out etc. It is one of the things that It like a lot at the guests.
you say "but we found cheap furniture, 2 dirty sofas (one worn out) and poor hygiene" the other customer say thath The apartment has a moder decorations.
All the electronical device is new(washing machine, dish washer, tv, frigde), excep the oven and the electrical cooking.
I think that you are really exigent in your comment, and I need to aclarate it. You don´t say me nothing in your accomodations only a few things thath I try to correct it. I buy more electronical calefactetor etc.. And I try to help you for the pick up etc...
If You had told me "Juan, I don´t like your apartment" and I had given you your money the first day, it is no problem for me.
I accept your comment, but I need to aclarate it by this way. I will use it for improve things in the apartment, in special for the winter customers.
In conclusion you tried to find a "luxury" apartment with a normal price
Convenient apartment close to sea
We stayed 3 weeks in this apartment with our 9 months old baby in october. The apartment is well located, 2 min walk from the beach and a great wooden boardwalk. Luna Beach is a nice little beach with a great chiringuito. Nice food, friendly staff. The compound has a pool that is clean, there is an elevator (appreciated with a trolley) and a gated parking. The flat has a nice view partly on the sea. The only down side is the road that passes close by the apartment and creates some noise. Not a problem at night though, it was very calm. Close to supermarket.
Juan was easy to communicate with as well
Thanks Olle for your comments, I hope to improve the apartment these year and I hope that you will spend more time in moon`s house in other ocasion.
Condo in great location on Costa del Sol
We rented this condo from a nice guy Juan who was helpful and very accommodating. The location is on the top floor (4th) of the complex giving a great view of the Mediterranean sea and beach. The location provided me the ability to walk along the boardwalk every day at the beach or walk to restaurants and shops. It is a great location for jumping into your car and going to Malaga, Fuengirola or Marbella.
Dear Tarak, I am very happy that you enjoyed in the apartment. And I hope to rent you the apartment in another occasion because You can enjoy of the one of the best bed in the world( a new be in the masterbed 180*200 meters), it is a new adquisitation in the apartment.
See you and thanks for your opinion
Vi kom till Calahonda och mottogs av Mariebell och Daniel. Lägenheten uppfyllde våra förväntningar. Underbar utsikt, nära till havet och affärer. Fantastisk strandpromenad. Underbara sängar. Rent och snyggt i lägenheten. Terassen som vi också kunde utnyttja var toppen. Vi återkommer gärna. Juan gav oss många bra tips. Tack Monica och Roger
Thanks Monica,You will be wellcome in other ocasion. This year the two terrace will be direct conected I hope you can spend more time in the apartment. See you
En effet, un endroit fort sympathique! pres de la plage par un raccourci qu'on le fait a pied sans aucun souci, l'appartement est spacieux, avec les éléments de base, nous avons été bien guidé par Daniel pour l'arrivée car nous, nous sommes "un peu perdu"! Merci encore de votre accueil et les explications!
Nous cherchions un appart avec une terrasse en face de la mer pour apprécier la mer et les couche de soleil, mais malheureusement impossible de rester un seul minute sur la terrasse car au pied de l'immeuble se trouve l'autoroute du sud et le bruit est assourdissant!!
La climatisation de la petite chambre ne fonctionnait pas, il fallait ouvrir la porte fenêtre mais cela rendait impossible d'y rester car le bruit était insupportable!
Enfin, nous avons bien profitait de la piscine qui était impecable!
your puntation about the apartment is not good and It is really down in comparating with other opinions, I thought that you have had a good accomodations in the apartment. You have written a lot of good things about the apartment and only write two bad things. The noise in the enclosed terrace and the air aconditionation in the second room. The air aconditionation is ok, but you should put it in manual because the remote device is not ok. The terrace has a really good view, a lot of guest said about it and the noise is only in this terrace, in the rest of the apartment is not noiser, the apartment has other terrace roof that is really calm. The noise in the terrace is not problem for the most of the guests but I accept your opinion and I try to improve the apartment for example change the remote control of the air aconditination.
See you and thanks for your opinion.
The attic is located in the resort Calahonda Royale, just 3 minute drive from the picturesque port of Cabopino, considered by many the most beautiful area in ??the Costa del Sol. This quiet port is surrounded by pine forests, green areas and it has many restaurants, bars, terraces and magnificent beach dunes. From the attic, only 2 minutes walk to the beach will reach the Moon beach with awarded blue flags by the European Community. The mall “Los cipreses” this just 2 minute walk , and you will supermarket, bakeries, bars, news, video, internet access, pharmacy, etc ...
Undoubtedly Calahonda is an excellent place from which to visit the wonderful Costa del Sol, where you can enjoy a pleasant climate all year long. Just 10 minute drive from the center of Marbella and Fuengirola. You can also enjoy visiting beautiful places such as: Ronda, Mijas, Puerto Banus, Gibraltar, Malaga and even Morocco by ferry from Algeciras.
This is a great place for golf enthusiasts. Walked arrive at Cabopino golf and less than ten minutes drive fields Miraflores, La Cala, La Noria, La Siesta Golf and Santana.
