Very good English trainer, at a fraction of cost of one back in England.

Restaurants and bars. : The most local restaurant are only 5 mins away by foot. Leave the complex by the gate facing the sea, walk down the hill and you will find 4 or 5 very fine restaurants try Rackets for great food and great entertainment, especially if you are served by Carlo.! Don't say I didn't warn you!! Just past Rackets are Chinese, Italian, Spanish and Indian Restaurants, all excellent and great value for money.

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.

Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, the organisation of our transfers by Chris was faultless. The apartment was as described, scrupulously clean and contained everything for our needs. The views were absolutely stunning. The location is great, within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. The location is hilly so you need to be fairly mobile and fit, but the opportunity to work off those extra calories was welcome.

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

Location

Nearest Airport
20 Kilometres
Malaga
Car: not necessary

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.
