This villa is so much more than functional as a holiday property, it is a home from home and benefits from simple home comforts that you won’t always see from a basic holiday villa.

The apartment is entered via a separate gated entrance to the side of the villa and steps down to the apartment front door.

The other bedrooms are on the main level and include a double bedroom with king size bed, larger twin bedroom (suitable for adults sharing) with ample storage space (wardrobe and shelves) and wall-mounted flat screen TV and chair. The smaller twin bedroom is ideal for children sharing. In the hallway off the double bedroom there is wardrobe and storage space. There is also an additional cloakroom on the main villa level. There is internet wifi access for the Internet TV and general access (Good speeds too! 34 up, 30 down)

There is also a wall-mounted baby gate blocking access to the stairs leading up to the master bedroom to ensure safety of little ones around the marble stairs.
The complete villa is the ideal place to spend time and you will find you can enjoy different parts of the villa including the following; There is a top terrace with outside furniture to seat 5 people with umbrella to enjoy far-reaching views down across to the sea and even as far as Gibraltar on a clear day. There are also a couple of sun-loungers on the top terrace for ultimate private sun-bathing. On the main villa level there is a covered terrace with outside sofas to seat 4 people, perfect for enjoying an evening drink or breakfast. There is also a secluded outside dining area with Moorish style outside table and seating for 4 people located off the villa lounge with easy access to the kitchen through the villa and surrounded by plants and sapling orange/lemon trees.

The property has been furnished to very high standards & has everything you could hope for from a holiday property. We rely heavily on word of mouth recommendations and regularly get around 50% repeat guests returning year after year and are booked up approx. 1 year in advance.
In line with Spanish legal requirements our property is also fully registered with the Junta de Andalucia: Reference VFT/MA/03015
We lived in Spain for 10 years before returning home to West Sussex with our young son for work relocation. We love our house in Spain and try and return as often as possible as all of us love the beautiful pool and relaxing on the chill out bed with BBQ's in the evening.
Alana Burton purchased this apartment in 2002
We love our villa and have spent many years improving and upgrading the original house to provide a luxurious base for the perfect holiday destination for both couples of families.
With our flexible accommodation you can rent just the apartment level which sleeps 4 , just the villa level for up to 8 guests or the whole property for up to 12 guests. With its great location just 2 minutes walk from shops, bars and restaurants but in q very quiet cul de sac with just 4 villas it really is a peaceful and relaxing retreat but with the beach just 4 minutes by car and Marbella just 15 minutes drive you're close to everything you need for a memorable holiday.
If you are sensible enough to book "The Apartment" you literally need only bring yourself. Absolutely everything you might need for your holiday is provided even a spare golf bag in our case. The privacy of the Villa is just perfect as is the off street parking, the accommodation and particularly the pool. Alana and Mike provide an excellent booking service and the management company were helpful and obliging. Lying on that gorgeous day-bed, surrounded by beautiful terracotta pots filled with exotic plants I truly felt that I had a holiday to remember.
A fantastic apartment with excellent facilities. The description is accurate and comprehensive, whilst the photos give a good feel of the property. However, seeing is believing and our kids thought it was "awesome". The apartment was clean, well maintained and stocked with good quality linen, towels, kitchen appliances and an extensive range of utensils and crockery etc. The outdoor area is amazing - a large dining table, sunbeds and a chill-out bed. The Weber gas BBQ is big and a bonus for those enjoying outdoor cooking.
The owners were available when needed and provided us with information regarding the local areas. Although they live upstairs, they respect your privacy at all times.
Car hire is not essential, but is great for visiting local beaches and nearby Marbella. There are also several large supermarkets close by, but a long, hot walk away without a car.
In summary, a perfect place for those wanting luxurious holiday accomodation, a private pool and secluded garden area in a central location close to Marbella and Malaga.
The villa was beautiful and exactly as pictured. It had a home from home feeling with attention to detail. Every effort was made to make us feel comfortable and well informed of local amenities. We will definitely return. Our best holiday to date 10/10.
Property and management services made it an easy decision to book this again next summer on our return from a relaxing holiday. The villa is beautifully furnished, clean with all mod cons. Situated near some very nice restaurants. Would definitely recommend this property.
We have just had a brilliant two and half weeks at the apartment. The apartment itself, is furnished to high standard with possibly the best bed we have had while staying on a self catering holiday. Having your own heated pool has been fantastic and our one year old loved it, we took him swimming everyday, even the days that there was no sunshine, and with the outside paved area it was great for him to practice his walking, Its pretty close to most things that you will need, the beach is a good ten minute walk away and their is a big supermarket about five minutes walk though it's up hill coming back so don't go too mad with the shopping. Communication with Mike was also of a high standard, any problems were fixed straight away and he was always a text or phone call away. for example we were the first couple to stay with a small baby and he went out and bought, high chair & travel cot, brilliant effort. We are hoping to come back in September or october, that pretty much says it al!!!
We hadn't stayed in a private holiday apartment for many years and to be honest although all the photos looked very nice both of us were a little bit nervous. We shouldn't have been though as this property is simply fantastic, the pictures are totally accurate and the location is so very quiet. We had a fabulous holiday and will recommend the apartment to our friends and family.
Calahonda is a central location on the Costa del Sol situated 30 mins drive west of Malaga airport & is in between Fuengirola & Marbella.
The property is on a quiet cul-de-sac within a couple mins walk of "the strip" where you'll find various restaurants, bars and a mini supermarket close to the bottom of Calahonda.
It is quite simple to get from the airport to The Apartment along the N340 coastal road & the A7 motorway (direction Algeciras/Marbella) We can talk anyone through the directions if needed.
The local area attracts many tourists year after year and is perfectly suited for families, golfing holidays, relaxing breaks away as well as activity holidays along the coast (kids park nearby) as well as inland and offers something for everyone.
Being near to the N-340 coastal road means it is easy to reach other local sights and towns very quickly and easily and there is also a motorway exit for Calahonda making it easy to get to the airport.
A car hire is advisable, we can arrange a transfer to & from the airport for 50 euros each way if needed.
