Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a great holiday, lovely clean apartment (thanks to Amanda who met us at apt to handover keys,really friendly), we especially enjoyed the large balcony equipped with table, chairs and loungers, Sun on balcony from lunchtime till sunset, great weather in April. Situated in a peaceful location between Fuengerola and La Cala which we walked to both (took about 30 mins) Easy to book with owner who kept us informed by txt, would defo go again. Thanks

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you for such a great review. You identified one of my own favourite aspects of the Apartment. I love to sit on the balcony in the evenings --- even late at night---- looking out over the gardens and the mediterranean and listening to the crickets. John

Relaxing retreat with a fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we booked to stay at this apartment. It is within easy reach of Malaga airport, we got a train from the airport to Fuengirola and a taxi, total cost of under €20 for 3 of us (you don’t have to pay for kiddies on the train). The view from the apartment is perfect, it looks out over the well kept gardens, swimming pool and sea!! The swimming pool was perfect for all ages. Our 4 year old loved playing in the walk in shallow end, but there is also a large deep area too. The pool bar/restaurant has games available and a play area for youngsters e.g sand area with small slides, Wendy houses etc.

We went both ways (Marbella and Fuengirola) on the bus, 5 mins from apartment. They are regular and the service was good. The bust to Fuengirola takes you to the road next to the train station, so easy access to other areas like Benalmádena.

We did get a bit of a shock when we went to the local beach with our 4 year old to find it was a nudist beach!!! A bus trip to La Cala and the lovely beach there put a smile back on her previously disappointed face!!

We look forward to booking the apartment again. It is comfortable and has everything you need.

Thank you for a lovely relaxing break x

Owner's Response: Thanks for that. There is a nudist beach close by, but there is a very well serviced regular beach also. It is within 100m of the nudist beach ---- but well separated from it. I'm just back from the Apartment myself, having arrived a day or so after you left. The weather was great this year with temperatures from 24 to 32C. we had to lower the Awning on the terrace every day. And I never tire of that view from the terrace. John

Outstanding views from the apartment, very clean and large appartment in beautiful landscaped grns

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped with everything you may need (except instructions for the complicated cooker hob!!) And no barbecue? Although listed in the inventory on the advert. It is well located for a stoll down to the beach, or a brisk walk to la cala. Well laid out appartment with 2 x large bedrooms (both en-suite ) and his/hers basins! Air con in every room, large living room with dining area and stunning sea and pool views. It is very secure with Electric gates and off street parking the whole complex is totally fenced off ?,it is very, very quite and peaceful, on the occasional day (depending upon wind direction ) you can hear traffic noise from the distant main road (which you can't see! ) but other than that ! Perfect! ! I would highly recommend this appartment, and should we visit this area again, then this appartment would be top of my wish list.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that. The area is quiet and peaceful. Not suitable for very active youngsters seeking thrills and noise, but very suitable for couples and families. Regarding the traffic noise which can be detected with open doors on very quiet evenings. A friend and myself had a bet about its source, and after walking down through the development to the road/shore we concluded that it is mostly due to the sea. However it is a long way from being intrusive. I abandoned the barbecue some time ago in favour of an electric griddle (due to cleaning problems ) and thought I had corrected the advert. I'll check that out. Thanks again, John

Peaceful and relaxing - wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time here, the children adored the pool. Pool bar was great for snacks and ice-creams, people are very friendly there too. Quite a few English people own these apartments so easy to ask about places to go etc. Local taxi to La Cala approx 9 euros and approx 12 to Fuengirola. Mercadona in La Cala with plenty of everything. Lovely restaurants in La Cala with good variety of food choices. The apartment was lovely, very clean and comfortable with plenty of equipment and utensils etc. The balcony was large and we could sit on there and watch our elder daughter in the pool. The pool was never busy and the grounds are stunning, and very well maintained. We will definitely return there!

Owner's Response: Thank you for that. The addition of the poolbar about 4 years ago has been very positive, and yes, the nationality of the owners is very varied. One of my neighbours is Belgian, another Swedish, and there are British and Irish also; indeed I think every European country is represented. It is great that you enjoyed yourself so much and I hope to see you back again presently

The gardens are immaculate and the whole complex is spotless!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely relaxing holiday in this apartment. We especially enjoyed the view from the balcony, the swimming pools and the fact that it was quiet and relaxing. There’s a washing machine which came in very handy and there's wifi and satellite TV.. Our only disappointment was that there was no BBQ even tho’ it says on the description that there is one. It’s a great location to use as a base to explore the surrounding area. We decided not to hire a car and instead used the bus or taxi to get around. The most reliable bus stop to use is the one just off the motorway – a short downhill walk from the complex, to go to Marbella and Cala de Mijas, or cross over the motorway on the footpath and there’s a bus to Fuengirola. Both run every 30 minutes. Don’t bother waiting for the bus that supposedly stops outside the complex - apparently it comes twice a day but we never saw it in the two weeks we stayed there. On the whole it was a good holiday and the whole family enjoyed it. Thanks :-)

An excellent value stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in a great apartment with amazing views. You can walk to some good restaurants. Although we had hired a car we found the bus service very convenient, particularly when we wanted to go out for dinner in the evenings. A few instructions would have been useful in the flat. We had an enjoyable time and would totally recommend staying there.

Owner's Response: Thank you for that.The local bus service is very good for visiting La Cala (2.5km) Fuengirola (5km) or Marbella (18km). The local cafes are also great with a mixture of Spanish, Italian, Chinese, English, Indian and Mexican restaurants. The views over the very extensive gardens were one of the main attractions for me in buying this apartment initially and these have been enhanced over time. I look forward to many more years visiting Balcones, John
