About Richard Funnell

As a family we have been enjoying holidays in this apartment and in the area for over 15 years. Our two sons love staying here, and with plenty to do to keep them occupied, so do we!

Why Richard Funnell chose Mijas

The property has just undergone complete modernisation in January 2015, with new kitchen, bathrooms and redecoration, providing a modern and contemporary feel.

A new internet enabled smart TV and unlimited fast fibre internet service with WiFi is perfect for NetFlix, Amazon Prime, YouTube, Facebook, as well email, internet etc.

Being within a secure community provides that peace of mind for families. The landscaped gardens provide a haven of tranquillity, whilst not far outside are bars, restaurants, shops and the beach.

What makes this apartment unique

Easy drive from airport. Good transport links. Close to beach, shops, restaurants and bars, while being quiet and family friendly. Completely modernised in January 2015 (photos to updated soon).

Perfect house and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I plus another couple stayed in this property for a week.

The owner was very attentive from when we enquired about the booking until we came home. Richard provided recommendations for restaurants and things to do which we found both helpful and reliable.

The apartment is in an ideal location for accessing the restaurants and the beach and for walks on the boardwalk. There are numerous golf courses within a short driving distance.

Both bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom with excellent showers and no shortage of hot water.

I would have no hesitation in returning to this property.

Perfectly suited to our needs

  • 4 of 5

The apartment and facilities available at the complex were ideal for us.

Two adults, one 5 year old and two teenagers.

The apartment was clean and well maintained with adequate space for us all. Wifi and satellite TV were a real bonus (especially for the teenagers).

The pools and bar area were never overcrowded and were just a few steps away through the perfectly kept garden.

Just next to the grounds are a number of very good quality restaurants and a very well stocked supermarket.

We hired a car so that we could explore the area but beaches and buses are within walking distance so transport was not an issue.

Overall the apartment exceeded our expectation's.

Great stay in Spain

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for ten days and we really enjoyed our time there! The apartment was lovely and very neat and very well equipped! The area was very quiet. Richard had arranger an extra bed for our youngest son so our three boys aged 4,6,8, slept together in one bedroom and we parents on another room.

The pool area couldn´t be better for staying with little childern. It was close, maby just 50m from the back door. Kids pool 20 to 40cm deep and bigger pool 120cm from the lower end. Pools were next to each other. There was also another pool close by but taht was just a deeper one.

Tere were some nice restauranges just a walking distanse and a supermarket. I would say a car is necesseary at least when there is children with you. It´s very easy to get to the centrum and shopping mals by car and won´t take long. There was always a free parking space just in front of the apartment.

Richard was very helpfull with all the questions we had and Jon as well! We would warmly recommend this apartment and would love to stay there again next time when travelling to Malaga.

Lovely relaxing week

  • 4 of 5

Retuned from a weeks holiday on Saturday 22 July.

The apartment is well equipped and comfortable and about 20 yards from the pool.

The complex looks a little tired in places but the pools were fabulous and ideal for a 6 and 3 yr old. At the start of the holiday the 6 yr old was too nervous to go in without arm bands, but by the end he swam a length by himself.

The restaurants near the top of the complex are really good and not over priced, and neither was the supermarket, no need for a car here.

It's also in walking distance of Miraflrores golf course, so managed a couple of games.

Only downside was lack of AC, fans in the rooms were ok, but it was very humid at times so a bit uncomfortable.

also wouldn't recommend this property to under 3's due to stairs.

A fabulous week

Lovely property, great resort...

  • 4 of 5

We loved this resort, it had everything we needed and was beautifully maintained and so friendly. The swimming pools especially were a treat - perfect size and temperature, and clean and quiet. We had a very relaxing, laid back holiday. We especially enjoyed the walk along the boardwalk to La Cala, where the beaches are wonderful. The apartment itself was almost perfect, well equipped, spacious and comfortable. It was very hot while we were there, and at times during the first couple of days, the ceiling fans weren't quite enough, but we soon learned that rolling out the awnings kept a lot of the heat out of the place. Would definitely return.
