Why S. M. Demuth chose Estepona

I love the Estepona / Marbella area and lived there for a year when I was studying so I know it well. It has absolutely everything from the culture of a beautiful University City (Malaga) to the picturesque shops of the old town of Marbella, the bleached, remote, beaches of Tarifa to shopping in Puerta Banus. It has of course an amazing climate even in the winter its usually sunny. I love the Spanish architecture of the holiday homes with their tropical gardens and pools. We don't find see this plethera of luxury holiday homes in France or other European countries. I feel my apartment reflects Spanish and Moroccan influences of the area. Everything in my property has been chosen with extreme care. I've really tried to capture an exotic but contemporary feel. I notice, everyone who stays leaves something interesting on the mantlepiece they have found on the beach as though they too have captured the environment in someway, shells or stones or smoothed pieces of coloured glass. I never tired of exploring the area, the shops, the bars, the restaurants, the markets, the villages, and even the mountains. This part of Spain gives me everything I need. Even at Christmas or New Year, there is life and fiestas in the street or even lunch on the beach. Every season offers something and even in the winter I can light a fire, crack open a bottle of red wine and watch the sun set or watch some good TV on Sky. What I love about are this area is it multi-faceted quality. When I lived there I had friends visit me constantly for different reasons. Some where on business, some passing through and some on holiday. This is both a connected cosmopolitan convergeance point and a beautiful retreat... what more could you want? Ski-ing? Its got that too!!

What makes this apartment unique

When I bought this property I searched all over the Marbella / Estepona area for what I was looking for. I thought of buying a propery up in the hills, in a town, on a golf course or buying up an old farm. After a long day's hunting in the dry heat and with a brain on overload I remember looking down at all the brochures on the floor of my hirecar. There was one property which stood out from all the others. It looked tropical, exotic, peaceful, and attractive and most of all, in that moment, the pool looked heavenly inviting. The next day I went back to the development. There was one perfect apartment left overlooking the pool and near the beach. It had a mexican / hispanic to it, with white marble and walls everywhere and a terracotta terrace. I felt transported. I went to the beach restaurant to have lunch with some friends to decide. It was a perfect day, with a gentle wind, there was some Spanish music playing. People were gliding through the water as they swam and small cabin cruisers were dropping anchor to come ashore for lunch. The water was flat and I could see the hill of Tangiers in Morocca across from Gibraltar. There was no doubt now that to be near the beach was a luxury I wanted as part of my property. This was different to any other beach because it was secluded by woods and seemed off the beaten track, but near all the exciting places. The apartment felt like an oasis in the busyness of Marbella, which, if I needed, was on my doorstep. I've had the apartment for nine years now and I still marvel at how perfect it is, very tranquil but right in the middle of all the action.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just want to say that we had a wonderful time staying at your apartment in Hacienda del Sol.



I really is a great place, the surroundings are so nice and the weather was (of course) fantastic.



We tried our very best to take good care of everything, and we hope to have the opportunity to return there again before too long.



Also want you to know that Tango handled all the practical details very professionally and everything went very smooth.

The development is ideally based between Puerto Banus and Estepona near a delightful town called San Pedro de Alcantara. It is bordered on one side by a conservation wood providing some exclusive walks to the beach. The nearest beach provides 2 restaurants/bars on the water front where you can sip sangria and watch the sun set over the Moroccan coast line. Although you may want to explore by car, there are also some excellent restaurants within walking distance and some convenient shops and supermarkets. For those who prefer not to drive, there is a first-class bus service which runs up and down the coast every 20 min. There is something for everyone in this area, the sophistication of Marbella, the culture of Estepona and the glamour of Puerto Banus. Costa del Sol (or Costa del Golf) is of course renowned for some of the best courses in the world and its sunshine! And don't stop there, enjoy the culture of nearby Seville, Granada or famous mountain villages Ronda and Benahavis.

Golf: Andalusia has established itself as one of the world’s paradises for golf-lovers. World-class events such as the Ryder Cup’97 has placed it as an undisputed leader in the golfing world. Today, Malaga is internationally christened the Costa del Sol – Costa del Golf. This small area has nearly 40 golf courses in an 80 km strip. Hacienda del Sol is particularly well placed within minutes some of the stunning courses of the coast including Gualdamina, La Atalaya, Los Flamingos, El Paraíso and Estepona Golf Club.

Ski: The exciting Sierra Nevada mountains are within a 2 hour drive of Estepona, giving a backdrop to the beautiful and historic city of Granada. Take a couple of days out of your holiday to do some ski-ing or make a day's trip out of it.

We had a great time

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our vacation in this apartment! We only have one regret: not enough time to enjoy! I wish we stayed longer than a week. The view from balcony is beautiful. The area around the complex is really quiet and well maintained.

We rented a car and visited local towns around. Each evening we had a dinner at different restaurants. In the mornings we relaxed at the swimming pool. We decided not to go to the beach (5 min walk), since the pool looked much more peaceful for us.

The local really nice supermarket is just also 5-7 min walk from the complex. Very convenient.

Wonderfully equipped, immaculate apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed several times at this apartment and have always had a most enjoyable time. It is exceptionally well maintained and has plenty of room for four people. The resort is not a noisy one which adds to the relaxing ambiance. The swimming pool is added inducement to stay at this resort. As a serious swimmer I can get plenty of lengths in before a sundowner on the balcony. A fine choice of restaurants are within easy walking distance as is the beach. Many a happy hour has been spent swimming in the sea and walking along the shore. I have never found it be crowded which adds to its attractiveness. I always leave San Pedro de Alcantara feeling fully rested and planning my next trip there.

Holiday August 2010

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Hacienda Del Sol from 19th August to 2nd Sept with our 2 year old Son and 6yr old Daughter.

Our first impression was how beautiful and clean the apartment was though we were a little surprised at the size of the complex which had @ 300 apartments though it was spread out with each block having its own pool. The buildings and gardens were very well maintained. The pool was lovely with a paddling pool next to it though children weren't allowed blow up rings, balls etc in the pools.

The local beaches weren't very suitable for young children, although the sand was nice there were lots of pebbles and stones to walk over before getting into the water. Sunbeds on the beach in front of the Marriot (timeshare resort not Hotel!) were 15 Euros per day which was a bit steep. If you took a 20 minute drive to El Rosario or Cabo Pino the beaches were more suitable for young children with sand all the way and shallower waters for bathing/playing. Heaven beach had a Flamenco show on the Saturday night which mesmerised the children for over an hour as we were dining on the beach.

The only restaurants within walking distance were set back from the very busy main dual carraigeway which wasn't so nice, we dined at 3 or 4, all were good food and service. Our favourite restuarants were Amigos and Los Albanicos in Benahavis 10 minutes away by car which had a lovely atmosphere at night. Nearest the apartment at the Marriot beach were 2 seafront restaurants both serving excellent food though only 1 was open in the evenings.

We visited the 3 Selwo attractions (cable cars,safari park and marine park) We purchased a ticket to do all 3 which worked out quite a bit cheaper and definately worth the money. We also took a drive up the mountains to Ronda which was very interesting with some amazing views.

All in all we had a really nice holiday but a car is pretty essential as the nearest decent sized supermarket is a 10 minute drive. Sophie the owner was lovely to deal with and was always quick to answer any questions/queries.

Comfortable Luxury

Comfortable Luxury

We have had a wonderful time at this flat. The flat itself feels like home, nicely decorated and appointed with all the essentials. This has been a nice change from timeshare resort accommodations, or hotels.

Having a beach on the Mediterranean Sea not 5 minutes walking distance is lovely. All the necessities such as groceries etc are within walking distance, and a short bus ride to the markets in Marbella and other coastal towns.

One can even do without a car, taking the bus from Malaga. This is such a nice break if one has to drive everywhere at home. If you do have car access, the trip to Rhonda is well worth it, as are many other scenic and historical places.

We have stayed here twice now, and we still want to return. All seasons have their own charm and activities, so any time of the year is good. We highly recommend this unit for holiday or even for a business trip.
