Shall I shoot myself in the foot

  • 5 of 5

The decision to write a glowing review of a holiday rental leaves you with the future possibility of not been able to book for the following year. With that said.

The communication between the owner Alan and ourselves during the booking was friendly and honest with all questions asked answered.

We booked a transfer from the airport to Rancho Park with Alan and were met with great warmth.

The apartment in which we stayed is very well appointed , extremely comfortable and maintained to a very high standard.

The area where the apartments are situated is ideal set on a quiet residential street which terminates due to a large body of water . The beach can be seen from the gate making the three minute walk to the sand an ordeal. If you do not fancy the beach you will probably have the pool to yourselves.At night leave the windows open and fall asleep to the sound of the waves carried on the night air.

The mini supermarket is equidistant to that of the beach deciding who will go for the fresh bread rolls each morning is a chore.If you wish to cater for yourself during your stay the mini supermarket carries everything.

There are a number of restaurants along the beach front which serve good quality food .

Alan the owner is a gentleman, providing excellent customer service, going well beyond what is required.

When it was time to leave, it was like leaving home after a week of total relaxation.

So there you have it we won't be able to make a booking next year . Enjoy!

Lovely and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay. Alan the owner was extremely helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We found that the oven was not working and he bought a new one and it was fitted the next day. My only negative is that being on the ground floor our terrace was always in the shade as it is at the rear of the property. We like to sit out in the morning having coffee and couldn't do that as it was shaded and a bit cool. The pool area at the front was great though and a good sun trap. The restaurant at the end of the road was fab. Great food, staff and entertainment and dancing every night.

Hidden jewel in Elviria

  • 5 of 5

What it say's on the package is what you get. We stayed for one week and it was perfect.The owner is a gentleman and the apartments are a credit to him.The apartment was spotlessly clean and well maintained.Location was for us ideal.Beside the beaches and lots of restaurants within a stroll away. Alan the owner lives next door to the apartments and is on hand if there is anything you need or if you want to know where to go to eat or visit he is there and nothing is a problem to him.We would have no hesitation in recommending the property to our family and friends. We hope to return in September.

The name of the road gives a clue - Tranquillity.

  • 5 of 5

As described on the website, clean, well maintained, great service when required like a warm fire in the winter. Easy access to restaurants, beach and supermarket, 50 paces and you are there, what a wonderful location. Attention to detail is clear to see. We will be back again and again and again. Many thanks for a great week. Have already told friends about this hidden gem.

Conveniently located just a 30-minute drive from Malaga International Airport and 10 minutes drive to Marbella and Puerto Banus with its magnificent marina and selection of numerous first class restaurants and bars. The ever popular holiday resorts of both Fuengirola and Benalmadena are also only a 15 minute drive from the complex. Elviria’s Santa Maria Golf Club has everything to offer even the most inexperienced golfer and there is also the Greenlife Driving Range nearby for beginners who are not quite confident just yet to go on the golf course, both only a short distance from Rancho Park Holiday Homes. The surrounding area is a paradise for Surfing, Golf, Tennis, Angling or for someone just searching for peace and quite and wanting to relax at the pool or just laze on the white sandy beaches nearby. The Costa del Sol offers approximately 320 days sunshine each year and incorporated with all of the above, surely this makes “Rancho Park” the ideal holiday destination for all ages.

Golf: The Santa Maria 18 hole Golf Course, par 70 (soon to expand to 36 holes), designed by Antonio Garrido is only a few minutes drive away from Rancho Park Holiday Homes and Santa Maria Golf has a magnificent Club House bar and a very exclusive restaurant.
