About Gerry Hammond

Janette and I have been together for 30 years and have a son Tony and a daughter Sara.

We live in Egham Surrey. Janette grew up around this area along with her 2 twin sisters and her elder brother. Gerry (me) was born in Windsor and moved into the Egham area shortly before we married.

Gerry Hammond purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Gerry Hammond chose Mijas area

We actually bought this apartment after a couple of failed attempts at a purchase in Lanzarote.We have always loved Spain both its lifestyle and its climate.

Having holidayed regularly for many years in Lanzarote we decided we would look seriously at buying a holiday home of our own. But due to a couple of problems in the administration system the purchase fell through. We were not deterred however and a good friend of ours hearing of our plight and having purchased recently in Rancho 'C' recommended we stay at his apartment and see if we could find a property nearby. We instantly understood why our friend had purchased there as the area was so clean so professionally run and so close to all the local attractions and sights.

We had a list of requirements we wanted our 'home in sun' to have : most important was a sea view with a balcony overlooking the Med, another was 3 bedrooms so our family and friends could enjoy holidays with us and lastly a good standard of build within the apartment and the surrounding gardens.

Rancho 'C' and this apartment ticked all the boxes and it was on a golf course, BONUS!!!

The area is safe, quiet and the beaches and surrounding restaurants, shops and bars are very close by. We have now made regulars of ourselves in most of them. Lastly the complex is built to very modern standards and we were so pleased that it could cater for all ages and all has the capacity to deal with wheelchair and push chair access.

Lovely Apartment on Miraflores

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed in this beautiful apartment which has fantastic sea views and a large balcony, a lovely sunny place to start your day and have a leisurely breakfast, we love it. It is well equipped and is truly a home from home. It is always interesting to see what is new or improved since we last stayed. The DVD player and free WiFi are an added bonus if you are unlucky enough to encounter some less than perfect weather (winter months) or have children to entertain.

The swimming pool is well kept and a good size with plenty of sun loungers available and there is a separate pool for children, . This is set in a well maintained garden with secure key operated gates to keep people out and children in!

There is a very well stocked English supermarket on the complex and all the usual supermarkets within a 10 minute drive, there are lots of restaurants and bars nearby to choose from.

We always hire a car, the airport is only about a 30 minute drive, the underground parking with a lift is fantastic. We stay in the apartment for golf holidays and there are many local courses within a 20 minute drive, more if you wish to go further.

This is one of the best apartments we have stayed in, it is always cleaned to an excellent standard and the property manager, Gloria & her husband are on hand if you need any assistance, we have never had a problem. Gerry is very easy to deal with and very prompt to reply. We have already booked to return in June this year (2017) and March & June 2018.

Thanks you Gerry & Janette for letting us share your lovely holiday home, Tim & Bev

Fabulous arrival at property, walking in and seeing the stunning view of the Med. Knockout.

Beautiful, spacious apartment. Everything from the attention to detail to the beautiful cotton bedding made us so comfortable. Beautiful, clean, well equipped. Home from home. be difficult to find better

Lovely pools, gorgeous and well kept grounds.

Easy 10 minute walk to sea. Very pleasant Bar on Beach. easy walk into La Cala, lovely little square and enjoyed a meal at Irish Bar.

Quaint little supermarket near beach with excellent meat counter. Also sells the obligatory floats and bits and pieces

Lidl very near.

Up the Hill, an English supermarket and good takeaway Fish and Chips.

Very good Indian Restaurant, Bombay Spices by sea front

Weather was great, mid 20s

Gerry very helpful at all times, prompt responses to every query.

We used the Car service to return to Malaga Airport, faultless

We hope to return very soon.

All you need is here!!!

All you need is here!!!!

This is our 5th time to stay at Gerry and Janette’s apartment! We were the type of family who would not normally keep returning to the same area and complex, but this is simply the best apartment we have ever stayed in! With its spacious rooms, huge balcony, underground parking, stunning views from all aspects, it is so well equipped! Washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, and toaster etc! Words don’t fully do this apartment justice. The gated complex, with a Lifeguard in July and August, itself is beautifully maintained, the Manager, maintenance staff, cleaners etc keep it in top shape, you won’t see a weed or litter here! It is very peaceful and is about 5-10 minutes walk from the beautiful beaches with their array of fantastic restaurants like Papa O, Nacho Playa, and La Bomba. These are located on the new boardwalk, a really lovely addition that stretches from La Cala to Riviera del Sol. This is a really pleasant place to stroll, run, cycle etc.The beaches are spotless and with plenty of Lifeguards, keeping everyone safe. If you go to La Cala, you will find really good places to eat, including typical Spanish, Indian, Chinese, all reasonably priced. Also in La Cala, you will find LIdl, Aldi, Supersol and Merodona supermarkets, but there are two shops within 10 minutes walk from the apartment for any milk, bread etc. Super place for all golfers! You will also come across a really good playground for the kids with a tapas bar. Buses at the end of the hill with take you to Fuengirola, with its great shopping and Water Park. You can also take the bus to Marbella, Malaga etc. Mijas Pueblo, a white washed village, which is visible from the apartment, is well worth a visit. Gibraltar is about an hours drive away. We have never hired a car, so you don’t really need one, as the Public transport and taxis are quite cheap. Gerry and Janette are an absolute pleasure to deal with, answering any queries etc very promptly. Chris and Gloria who live in the complex are very helpful and are around if you need any information. All you need is here!

Large terrace with sea AND mountain views

  • 4 of 5

Large apartment with massive terrace and only a short walk to the beach and some really good restuarants (Blue Marlin tapas menu in particular was great). It was a little chilly while we were there but we still managed breakfast and sundowners on the terrace with a choice of sea or mountain view.

The apartment was very clean with good kitchen facilities and includes an undergroup car park space.

Miraflores makes a great base for those wishing to explore the Costa Del Sol, with the ever popular Fuengorolia and Marbella only fifteen minutes away. The complex is built around a very testing but very pretty 18 hole golf course. Also for golfers there are up to 30 other courses within 45 minutes travelling time. Equally for those who want a quiet less active break La Cala beach is only 10 minutes walk away, so too are a variety of shops and restaurants. Miraflores Country Club with live music most evenings is also very local. For those wishing to cook 'Al Fresco' a gas barbeque is supplied on the main terrace.

Other Activities: go karting, waterpark, retail park.

Golf: Great base for Golf.

Miraflores course is not long but very cleverly designed.....some great match play holes.

Cabapino course nearby is again not on the long side but quite tight, and has some amazing views over the Med.

El Chapperral is also with 5 min by car, great contours and true greens.

Santana,about 10 min away by car,great visual course, wide open fairways,reasonable flat, you could score low here if you get a bit of luck.

Alhurin el Grande, very challenging, especially for mid to high handicappers,always a bit of wind here.But also some lovely views, about 30 min from apartment.

Calanova, I played this in October, I liked it a lot.Great design.You can see this course from the balcony of our apartment, look to the left as you are facing the mountains.The tees seem always to be elevated you get to see the hole and its designs early, again great views and great fun.
