I live in Canada with my husband and our 2 sons. We both work and spend our summer holidays for the last 19 years in Europe.
Spain is always part of our trip since it is our first 'love'. We also visit the Caribbean Islands but Costa del Sol offers us sun and memories within reach. This made us buy a property in the area.
The 2 duplex penthouse units are centrally located in a gated community in adjacent to Miraflores - Albamar Urbanization, with commanding and spectacular views towards tropical gardens, 3 pools, and a private pool Club/Bar.They face South respectively South-East towards the Mediterranean Sea.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010
The 2 apartments are very well suited for families with/without kids. Each block has 6 apartments, 4 on ground floor and 2 penthouse duplex-es, it is quiet yet having all amenities in walking distance.
There are many good quality apartments in Mijas Costa but one can hardly find under one "roof": great location, amenities, mature gardens, well maintained/secured complex and amazing sea views.
We had a wonderful hollidaybreak with our 10 year old daughter. The appartment was very luxury and spacious. Two terraces made it complete. The topterrace was very usefull to enjoy the last eveningsun. The views from the terraces are great. Also the beautifull garden what surrounds the appartment is very nice, including three pools to choose from. Restaurants, bakery, internet-cafe and a small supermarket in walkingdistance. Easy access to the mainroad to visit the touristic highlights. We got very usefull and detailed information of you about restaurants and places to visit. Also the response of questions was very fast. We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed the spanish way of life.
I went with my daughter her husband my son and his girlfriend and it suited the 5 of us just right. The complex is ideal for relaxation and entertainment whichever suits and the apartment was lovely, clean, tidy, good facilities and a lovely sun terrace that we were able to enjoy each evening
The appartment was exactly like described in the listing. What we enjoyed most was the huge balcony directed to south west. The appartment as well as the full complex was very tidy and well kept. The penthouse is located in a house at the uppermost end of the complex`s garden. This ensures you to have a spectacular view over the beautiful garden with its flowers and trees and even down to the sea. Also, One of the 3 pools can be watched from the balcony.
The rooms were fully equipped with lovely designed interior decoration. The 2nd sleeping room can be reached over somewhat steep corkscrew stairs. Up there you will be enjoying a specifically cute atmosphere of this little room.
Gabriel and Mirela, the owners, were very helpful and straightforward during our short term preperation of the trip. They provide lots of helpful material inside the appartment - as well as additional tipps via phone and email.
I have already recommended the appartment to my family. My sister with her 2 kids might be next :-)
Dear Mirela and Gabriel,
Your apartment was very beautiful, well maintained and lovely to stay in (it also had all the facilities we needed). It was perfectly located in a very nice neighborhood with walking distance to great shops and restaurants. We all really enjoyed the evening sun on the big beautiful terrace ..... The views are just breathtaking :-)
The 3 pools on the community ground were perfect for the kids to play in (age 4 & 7), and the nice club house had good food and lovely staff.
Nice with a walking distance to the beach and to the local bus for an easy access to see the rest of the beautiful coast.
We enjoyed many good restaurants in the area and explored many nearby cities (Marbella, Gibraltar, Setenil, Mijas (Pueblo), Granada etc).
Thank you so much for a really good customer service and help both before and during our holiday. (Really nice tips and recommendations from you Gabriel :-).
We would love to recommend this great apartment to our family and friends and we will definitely go back and rent this apartment again!!

Dear Mirela and Gabriel
We just came home after a very nice holday. The stay in your apartement was very good. The views are just breathtaking, one could get used to those views. We felt save and at home in this urbanizacion. The park/gardens is/are very tidy and beautiful to see with its palmtrees and flowers. The apartment was great for five people (2 adults and three children). We maybe should advice you to change the matrasses of the beds, only this small point of critique cannot win it from the rest. A big compliment for the place and thank you for your kind help in preparation and during the stay.
greetings from a dutch family. sander and willemijn and kids
Wonderful setting, clean and very tidy grounds, plenty of room and excellent locaion.
We wanted a perfect family break where our 15 Year Old Daughter could pose and look cool at the beach, pool and local restaurants, our 5 Year Old could play safely and generally have fun, and Mum and Dad could relax, take in a bit of Sun, enjoy some good food and maybe make a few new friends along the way, whilst knowing the girls are having a good time and enjoying their holiday.
This apartment provided the perfect base to achieve all the above, a lovely, clean spacious accomodation, over two floors, with roomy bedrooms, functional kitchen / dining area, spacious shower room and relaxing lounge area with TV/DVD and Satelite providing an endless selection of channels.
The main lounge and master bedroom access a very large sun terrace with views over the communal pool area and past there onto the sea. The Pool area has a great bar and cafe serving excellent meals from breakfast through to lunch and dinner.
Local restaurants and bars on the Miralfores estate are within easy walking distance, as is the local beach at Riviera De Sol, many other beaches and places of interest are within easy reach by car or local transport.
All in all we loved our stay at this apartment, it provided a great base for a great holiday, and I think it's the first time we have had an arguement and stress free holiday where all age groups were catered for and pleased with the vacation, in short, recommended.
