About Rick Martignetti

I am in my mid 40's with a young family and enjoy the simple things in life.

I am a qualified accountant and currently work for a Bank, currently living and working in Bristol.

I grew up in Cambridgeshire and enjoyed sports, principally tennis and this was one of the main reasons for choosing the area.

Rick Martignetti purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Rick Martignetti chose Sitio de Calahonda

I chose the apartment for several reasons.

The orientation of the apartment gives wonderful views from both the lower terrace and top terrace but is amazingly quiet and peaceful.

It is also spacious and large enough for a large family or even a couple of families and with the BBQ terrace we wanted somewhere to entertain.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with the upper terrace and BBQ, and being able to dine outside in the warm evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rick,

We enjoyed our stay !

My husband found the view on the golf course entertaining and the pool was really nice to swim.

You have a great house with nice outdoor areas we enjoyed.

Thanks for the stay.

Kind regards

What a great apartment, had everything two families needed for a relaxing weeks holiday. Everything described was accurate and to be honest it was better, the roof terrace was amazing!!!! great for relaxing in the sun late afternoon and barbecuing into the evening.

We did walk to the local beach/shops a couple of times 1/2hour walk with hills much easier in the car though, I would say a car is a must for shopping and exploring. We found a couple of beaches we loved were Playa Cabopino and Cala De Mijas both only about 5k either side on the A7.

We used the pool late afternoon early evening and it was never too busy and always clean and tidy, with plenty of space in the sun or in the shade.

We would definitely use this apartment again and recommend to friends and family.

Rick the owner was great from start to finish in helping us book and plan our holiday. I would recommend Ricks advice on the hire car company Fetajo they were great and so easy!!! met us at the arrivals and we were driving away within 10 mins.

Thanks again Ben.

Lovely apartment and great base to see all.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property, clean, tidy and very well furnished and kept. Duplex penthouse arrangement was large ( could sleep 8 really) with upper and lower terraces with views over golf course and towards Mijas Pueblo in the mountains. Upper terrace was lovely and used most days and for evening meals. Only a few minutes by car to the beach. Really liked Cabopino beach and restaurants. Marbella and Malaga (about 30mins) are well worth a visit, especially the old towns. Miraflores golf course looked good but didn't play. Just loads to do along this stretch of coast. Great base and would return to this apartment.
