About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, comfortably sleeps 6, set in stylish gated community

Property registration number CTC-2016105161. In this spacious and elegantly designed first-floor beach front apartment, recently redecorated, you can idle away the sunny days, stretching out on the terrace or by the pools. You can stroll across to the beach and have a drink or meal at the smart beach cafe. It is situated in a tranquil area yet bars, restaurants, excellent golf courses and the main commercial centres of Estepona, Marbella and Gibraltar are only a short drive away.

Parents will enjoy the peace of the La Perla de la Bahia complex, one of the most acclaimed on the coast. It is known for its Moorish-influenced architecture and carefully tended gardens with their palm trees and colourful flower beds. Two beach cafes, open during the summer months, are within easy walking distance. Children will love the toddlers' pool and the direct access to the uncrowded beach. A new playground ideal for the under 8's has recently opened a 3-minute drive or 15-minute walk away. The first-floor apartment is tastefully furnished to the highest standards, wit h extra-wide super king-size bed in the master bedroom, and whirlpool bath. A super-fast fibre-optic broadband system has now been installed at the apartment, which also gives access to hundreds of TV channels in a variety of languages, including the main UK terrestrial channels, eg BBC1, BBC2, ITV and C4 as well as many Spanish, French, German, Irish and Scandinavian channels.

The price of the apartment is in Euros so the £sterling price quoted may vary very slightly according to exchange rate fluctuations.

Welcome to the Costa del Golf!: This is a golfer's paradise and only minutes from the superb courses with a short drive from the numerous other courses of the coast. The Sierra de las Nieves national park is 30 minutes drive where you can enjoy 4x4 jeep safaris, quad-biking fishing, shooting, mountain-biking, hill-walking and equestrian sports. Horse-racing is held weekly in high-season in La Cala de Mijas, and at Sotogrande visitors are welcome to watch the polo matches being played with immense skill most afternoons at 5 pm. Further east in Fuengirola there is an excellent aqua-park, aquarium, dolphin trips and shopping facilities. The Selwo safari park in Estepona is only a short drive away and is worth a visit for all the family. Marbella is the place to go to enjoy a late night out with its fantastic bars, restaurants and clubs, or, even just for a shopping expedition to the large department stores.

Great Sightseeing Trips:: Casares, Guacin and the famous Andalusian white villages are a short drive inland. In the winter you can even enjoy a day's ski-ing on the Sierra Nevada near Granada, a three hour drive away.

Closer at hand, the excellent Sal beach restaurant (open from Easter-September) is a 10-minute walk away, the other side of the headland beyond the Moorish tower. Puerto Banus is the place to people-watch at the marina, with plenty of designer boutiques, bars and restaurants. The old town of Malaga is worth a visit with its stylish shopping and Pablo Picasso museum.. Go to see the Barbary Apes or try some duty-free shopping in Gibraltar one day, or take a day trip to Tangiers in Morocco. Don't forget to visit Tarifa too for the spectacular sand-dunes, massive breakers and surfboarding.

Other activities:: Close to the Costa del Sol Championship Golf Courses.

Wow! What a fabulous apartment!

  • 5 of 5

A truly fantastic holiday. The apartment was exceptional - immaculately clean, luxurious and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The panoramic balcony gave us the most beautiful sea views and stunning sunsets. Plenty of excellent restaurants nearby or very well stocked supermarkets if you prefer to self cater. The children adored the extensive pool - perfect temperature for swimming and set in delightful gardens. Tom was very responsive and helpful in all correspondence prior to our arrival. We would return in a heartbeat! Thank you.

Amazing apartment near Estepona !

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in July '16 in this amazing apartment in Estepona!

it is the perfect place to stay for a family vacation.

The apartment itself is great with stunning views in a large terrace in front of the sea! you have absolutely nothing between the apartment and the beach except:

a beautiful residence garden with kids and adults pool (very quiet and secure for kids) and the beach right past it!

there is a enjoyable walking path between the residence and the beach for great walks.

The residence Perla de la Bahia is also very charming and lovely with well maintained gardens, the apartment has an underground secure garage with an elevator which made it very easy for grocery shopping and luggages.

The residence is also next to a very hip and trendy private beach with sofa beds, luxurious bar and pool.

The apartment as mentioned has perfect terrace (with sitting corner, lunch table), all possible equipment even fiber optic internet! very comfy, with books and DVDs. Kitchen is very well equiped (with even had a high chair for our baby boy).

The location is near everything, a car though is recommended to fully enjoy costa del sol.

Finally the owners are lovely people and very thoughtful, they assisted us, even from a distance by mail or tel, whenever we needed something.

We definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful and perfect vacation in costa del sol!

Great apt with cleaner who doesn't like to clean

  • 2 of 5

All the other reviews about the standard of the property were spot on so no need to repeat why has already been said

Only issue we had was the safe not working in the apartment and the fridge every no and then not working . The lid of the kitchen bin was broken . All of the above was liveable so we did not contact anyone to request it to be sorted

We were leaving Malaga at 9pm on the Saturday night and enquired if we could stay a bit longer in the apartment . Unfortunately due the fact that they new clients were coming in that day our request was declined . A 10.30am is too early IMO to ask guests to leave . We stayed around the complex till 6pm . Nobody had arrived by them . Surely a midday departure should have been accommodated .

A 10.15 the cleaners arrived . 15 minutes earlier than expected and when I asked the lady to come back at 10.30 ,she requested to start changing the beds was requested by her . When i said no to her , she was not impressed.

When we returned from our holiday we were advised by the owner that there would be a surcharge due to the cleaner having found the apartment in a poor condition . When we enquired what the problem was , she informed the owner that there was fingerprints on every window in the apartment , finger prints on the tv , water bottles under the beds , food in the baby's high chair. We tend to go on holiday . Didn't know that we needed to bring our windoline and start cleaning windows before we left . That's why you have a cleaner to come in to clean the apartment . She also complained about a black bag that we left in the apartment . The same one that i offered to take out and she said that she would do so .

I am not sure the cleaner advised the landlord that she didn't need tidy one of the bedrooms in the apartment because it was unoccupied for the two weeks . So this game her plenty of time to wipe down a few Wi

Owner's Response: Disappointed and saddened with Greg's review, but I think it speaks for itself. He left our cleaner almost in tears at the messy state he and his family had left the apartment in - marks on the upholstery, walls etc etc as well as the bits he admits to - the worst in three years of lovely people coming to stay with us. He is upset because we therefore had to make an extra cleaning charge, the first time that I can recall we've ever had to do this. Greg admits the apartment is great, as praised by previous visitors, so a 2* review seems vindictive to say the least! As to the checkout time this was made clear well in advance, and visitors can still stay around the complex all day, as he and his family did. Never mind, most of our visitors are delightful!

Absolutely superb, an amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were so very impressed by the beautiful apartment, from the fabulous views of the ocean to the relaxing pool enclosed by meticulously manicured gardens. The whole complex was superbly maintained. The apartment was a home from home and wonderfully equipped. I can honestly say it was one of the most relaxing holidays Ive had in quite a long time. The boardwalk that runs along the beach is so inviting and for those who enjoy a little more exercise they have free equipment at intervals along the way. I hired a bike from the next village and every morning cycled the route to explore the area. Quite simple stunning. I wholeheartedly recommend the apartment.

Nice stay at Casares Costa (Sp)

  • 5 of 5

A very nice 3 bedroom apartment with huge balcony (nearly 50m2) with sea view. The apartment is situated at the second floor and easy accessible with an elevator. From the balcony you have nice view to the fantastic gardens wit swimming pools, one for adults and one for children. Estepona (north) is just 10 min drive, Gibraltar (south) is appr. 40km.

Along the beach is a nice and well accessible, 4,5km walking pad (with lots of gym attributes) up to Puerto Deportivo De La Duquesa, here you can find lots of nice restaurants around the harbour.

We had a very nice 10 day stay at June with nice weather. For our 2 year old daughter a cod and high chair were available for free.
