Overview

About the property

Beachfront- beautiful bright 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment 30 meters from the beach

This beautiful bright 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom raised ground floor apartment definitely has the ‘wow’ factor.

Only 30 metres from the beach, with spectacular sea views from every room!

Although we viewed many fantastic places to buy, this beautiful, comfortable apartment just hit the spot, nothing could compare with the views and location. We love this place and hope you do too.

It’s set within the secure, gated community of Puerto Del Mar, a beautiful ‘sun lovers’ dream apartment, and it couldn’t be closer to the beach.

With uninterrupted sea views from every room, and direct access to the beach and the new boardwalk, it provides a perfect holiday destination for sun-lovers, golfers, couples and families of all ages.

There are four pools including a large sparkling ‘lagoon’ style pool, a lovely large round pool and two children’s pools, in secure areas, with showers and beautiful gardens.

The building is serviced by two sets of lifts to help with mobility, luggage and shopping.

The bright, spacious lounge opens onto a superb wrap around terrace, which faces both south and southwest. From here the sea views will take your breath away as well as providing stunning views of both the sunrise and the sunset at most times of the year. (the sun being directly overhead in high summer!)

The terrace is a perfect place for comfortable al fresco dining, as well as relaxing on the sofa in the evening with a glass of wine or prosecco watching the world go by and the sun go down.

The apartment is brightly decorated, has WiFi and TV with a full package of UK channels including sport and movies. (Other language channels can be provided).

There is a bluetooth speaker/radio for you to use.

The apartment is furnished with quality and comfort in mind. It has air conditioning/heating in every room, making it a perfect all year round holiday destination. The kitchen and utility rooms are well equipped with a comprehensive range of appliances and equipment to make your stay more enjoyable.

There is a private secure parking space for a small car as well as on street parking; a car is nice to have but not essential, as all facilities are within easy walking distance, as well as being close to a regular bus service.

Ideally located just a short distance from Royal Beach, home to one of the best Chiringuitos (beach bar) on this stretch of coastline. The popular Luna Beach and Chiringuito, is only a five minute stroll along the new boardwalk in one direction, with the fabulous El Caprico Chiringuito 5 mins in the other direction.

A 15m walk (part boardwalk part beach) brings you to the picturesque port of Cabopino with its fabulous yachts and numerous bars and restaurants. The superb coastal boardwalk provides easy access to many other top class bars, and restaurants along the coastline. You’ll be spoilt for choice and could eat somewhere different every day.

This apartment is ideally located on the Costa Del Sol, between Fuengirola , with its beautiful old town, and the up market Marbella and Puerta Banus, as well as being well situated for visiting the charming whitewashed mountain village of Mijas Pueblo.

Locally there are numerous top class golf courses,

(9 close by!) as well as theme parks, a safari park, a sea life centre, a zoo, and water parks. For those looking for more active fun there is a gym and a tennis club close by.

About Wayne and Julie Robinson

We are both from the North West of England and love our holidays but this is the only place we have found which keeps drawing us back. It is so easy to get to, we just love the area and the climate is fantastic!

As well as beach holidays we also enjoy skiing, so this location offers the best of both worlds with the excellent ski resort of Sierra Nevada just over 2 hours away by car. Great too for golfers with 5 beautiful courses close by.

Wayne and Julie Robinson purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Wayne and Julie Robinson chose Sitio de Calahonda

The apartment is brightly decorated, and furnished with quality and comfort in mind. It has air conditioning/heating in every room, making it a perfect all year round destination. There is WiFi and a full package of UK and, on request, other channels TV.

The kitchen and utility rooms are well equipped with a comprehensive range of appliances and equipment to make your stay more enjoyable.

We just love the location, it is perfectly situated just a few hundred metres from Royal Beach, home to one of the best Chiringuitos (beach bar) on this coastline. You can spend the day on one of their perfectly positioned sun beds and order food and drink without leaving your sun bed.

The popular Luna Beach and Chiringuito, is only a five minute stroll along the new boardwalk in one direction, with the fabulous El Caprico Chiringuito in the other direction. A 15m/20m walk brings you to the picturesque port of Cabopino with its fabulous yachts and numerous bars and restaurants.

What makes this apartment unique

As soon as we saw this property we fell in love with it. It is a bright apartment with fantastic sea views everywhere you look.

The bright, spacious lounge opens onto a superb wrap around terrace, which faces both south and southwest. From here the sea views will take your breath away as well as providing stunning views of both the sunrise and the sunset at most times of the year. On clear days you can easily see Gibraltar and the African coast.

The terrace is a perfect place for enjoying your breakfast al fresco, whilst planning your day, and then in the evening relaxing on the sofa with a glass of wine, watching the world go by, and the sun go down.

In the well maintained grounds of the community there are 4 pools, including a large lagoon style pool (being the main feature), there is another large circular pool and 2 children's pools, all pools are fenced off for safety. There are plenty of sun beds to relax on, around the swimming pools, and pool towels are provided for your stay.

Great apartment right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a most enjoyable and comfortable week in this beautifully located two bedroom apartment. It was a real home from home with sunshine and great views along the coast. The large balcony was a joy and the underground parking space a real bonus. Both the apartment and the grounds - including a lovely pool complex - were well maintained and we wanted for nothing. The recently built boardwalk that is accessed directly from the complex provides lovely walks along the beachfront and gives access to good beach bars and eating places. There are two supermarkets just across the main coastal highway - a ten minute walk. If you do not have a car there is a regular bus service along the coast with a stop withing a few minutes walk. Easy access to the variety of Costa del Sol towns and villages and Malaga airport. Wayne and Julie provided all the information anyone could need before our stay and could not have been more helpful. The apartment is well equipped including WiFi and an excellent range of TV stations if you enjoy keeping in touch with the news and watching a little TV. No hesitation in recommending this home to anyone other than we shall want to go again and do not want to find it fully booked!!

fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this property and I must say the place and the location could not be better. Weather was fantastic so we made great use of the outdoor terrace and swimming pools. Our kids are aged 6 and 3 and it is almost a second home to them now, it make it very difficult to leave come home time. The owners always make sure we are comfortable from booking to arrival, the property itself is maintained immaculately, it really is home from home.

Thank you Wayne & Julie, we look forward to booking again with you next year.

The Property Is Everything That Was Written About It And More

  • 5 of 5

Wayne & Julia have gone to a lot of trouble to ensure that, whilst you are there you want for nothing at all. In all my years of self catering I have never come across such a lovely apartment. What A Pity Its booked up for 2019. Thanks to Wayne & Julia for making our stay so easy.

Lovely property with stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was immaculate & really well equipped. The owners clearly care about their guests happiness. If we ever go back to Calahonda this will definitely be our first choice of accommodation! One point to note however is that the allocated car parking space is a very tight squeeze! We hired a Ford Focus & found it too tricky to park there. Luckily there was on road parking available so it wasn’t a problem.

Owner's Response: Hi Lizzy, Thanks for the great review. Yes, the car park space is small, more suited for a smaller car really, but the car park is usually pretty quiet and there are many spaces guests can use. As you say there is also parking on the road next to the main entrance. Glad you had a great time and we look forward to your return visit. Kind Regards, Wayne and Julie Robinson.

Amazing location, perfect size, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as described, directly above the pool and on the coast overlooking the ocean! There is an amazing wooden walkway just on the other side of the pool that goes about 20 minutes in each direction. It is well used but safe , clean and very well maintained. There are restaurants and bars of varying formality, price and menu on either side. Nearby there are plenty of restaurants and grocery stores. The dishwasher and washer and dryer are a nice touch and very helpful. The kitchen is well stocked - and the apartment is very clean. We can't wait to come back! Thank you for the amazing time!

The Andalucia Region

Costa del Sol has been at the top of European holidaymakers destinations for so long because of its great position in the Med.

With over 320 days of lovely sunshine each year and miles upon miles of Blue Flag sandy beaches, this really is a place to come to relax and enjoy yourselves.

Sitio De Calahonda, Mijas

Calahonda is one of the best-positioned towns on the Costa Del Sol, half way between Fuengirola and Marbella there is more than enough to keep everyone happy. With the lovely old, Spanish fishing village of La Cala de Mijas on one side and Cabopino marina on the other side, you could not be any more central.

Calahonda has some of the best bars and restaurants on this stretch of the Costa del Sol.

From the boardwalk, immediately in front of the apartment you can walk to some fantastic beach bars. Leave Puerto Del Mar by the front gates.
and either turn right or left. If you turn right you will very soon see Royal Beach, home to a fantastic Chiringuito (open March to October) great for food, drinks and atmosphere
, with its Pirate Bar and relaxing music.

http://www.chiringuitoroyalbeach.com/contact.html or see them on Facebook at

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001143820279

Continue to Luna Beach Chiringuito (open all year round), great for seafood/fish, drinks and friendly atmosphere
- Continue to Capobino (part Boardwalk/part walk on the beach), passing two further small Chiringuitos on the way (open March to October). Capobino is a small harbour town with several great restaurants including Albert’s Bar and Grill and La Despensa.


Continue beyond the harbour and it opens out to a further sandy beach and Chiringuito called Andy's Beach bar where you will see water sports and, on a windy day, kite surfers.

If however you turn left along the boardwalk
 from the apartment you will come to Chiringuito El Capricho great for sea food/fish and grilled meats
. Continue behind EL Capricho and you can continue to walk along the sea front/beach, however part of this walk (by Dona Lola property) is only possible at low tide. (The boardwalk is in plan to be completed for this stretch winter 2016/17)

The boardwalk continues beyond Dona Lola and stretches all the way from Riviera to Cala de Mijas. La Cala de Mijas holds wonderful street markets and with over 100 stalls there is something for everyone. Stroll along the boardwalk and have a drink at one of the many beach bars.

The Dona Lola resort is around a 15m stroll or a 2 minute drive from the apartment and a great place for eating out with a huge variety of cuisines to suit all tastes. Have a drink at Oscars (Bar and Tapas) before strolling a few yards to try Da Vinci’s for Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, or Lemon Grass for Thai, or The Spice Lounge if Indian is your choice or La Estancia for a great steak in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The choice is yours.

Across the road from Dona Lola you will find El Zoco, which is a multicultural shopping centre of arabesque architecture. In El Zoco, you will find a number of restaurants, pubs and sports bars of many different nationalities, as well as many other amenities such as shops, supermarkets, a Post Office and a bank with a cash machine.

Try a relaxing drink with views of the Med at the rooftop Bar Boru, which also does excellent breakfasts! Within the courtyard of El Zoco, you will find La Mandragora for International, Spanish and Mediterranean food, El Oliva for international, Spanish and Mediterranean food, China City for Chinese, Vila Paradiso for Italian, Ruta 40 for a great Argentinian steak. Plus others.

The closest shops and supermarket are at Los Cypress which is within walking distance of the apartment. There is a taxi rank there too for the return journey if needed! When leaving the apartment by the main gate head down to the main road and go under the flyover and then left at the roundabout and up the hill where you will find a Lidle and a Super sol supermarket, a bar/cafe, a bank and other general shops.

Our apartment at Puerta Del Mar is also within easy reach of various other resorts and attractions:

Back on the boardwalk, as you continue past the beachside of Dona Lola and rejoin the boardwalk you will come to the newly refurbished and fabulous Max Beach for 5 star food, luxurious large white sun loungers and fantastic ocean views.

http://www.maxbeach.com

Just past Max Beach is the Chiringuito El Juncal at Playa Riviera. A lovely bar and restaurant, right on the beach.

El Oceana Beach Hotel & Restaurant, Mijas Costa, is right on the beach and boasts stunning views, luxurious facilities if you want to feel special for the day.

Fuengirola is central for numerous activities and is 15 mins away by car, from Calahonda. It has 5 miles of sandy beaches, an open air Zoo and Aqua park. Sohail Castle is situated at the West end of the promenade and has a park, which hosts many festivals throughout the year.

Space is limited here, I can send you more info
