The Costa del Sol Region: Over the last few decades, the Costa del Sol has become one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations. Its pleasant climate, numerous beaches and Golf courses have certainly influenced this. There are countless places to visit and things to do which make it one of the most successful tourist areas in Europe. Its capital, Malaga, and the city of Marbella are both cosmopolitan cities with great night life as well as cultural significance and attract the most tourists. It is a vast area with many different faces from the touristy beach towns like Marbella to the more traditional white washed villages of Mijas. The Costa del Sol doesn’t just posses good climate but it also has diversity. It is no wonder it is so popular with holiday makers.

Selwo Safari Park in Estepona with its animals roaming semi-wild is a great day out as is the Zoo in Fuengirola. There are also two Water Parks close by, in Mijas Costa and in Torremolinos.

"The resort is ideal - plenty of pools to lounge around and rarely did we have problems getting a sun lounger. Lots of shady places too. The Club staff are very friendly and the coffee gorgeous. Large flat screen TV in the lounge area to take in the Olympics and free wifi which was well used. A car is essential to get into Estepona and to shop at the numerous cheap supermarkets along the main road.
The apartment is ideally placed - just a few steps from the chiringuita and a split level pool. The garden is bigger than some and has lovely views. Air con very efficient. Bedrooms compact but with excellent storage, good size ensuite and shower room, couches comfy, tv reception fine, dvd player useful. Kitchen well equipped with fridge freezer, washing machine, microwave and dishwasher. Superb pizzas and pasta at restaurant near entrance to Albayt Resort. We had a great time and excellent value for money! Many thanks Tom.
The apartment was as promised regarding the layout, facilities and location. Car is essential to get best out of the nice city and the best beaches, which locate close to the city. The apartment was well maintained and clean, all the equipments working fine. Good golf courses very near. The customer service both from the owner and from local support was extremely good, fast and friendly. Our family can warmly recommend this as a very good location for a sunny holiday!
This is a wonderful home-from-home and just as the host advertised it. We went in September looking for a quiet time and had a lovely relaxing holiday. The apartment has practically everything one could ask for. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is even a hair drier in the main bathroom. We were four adults and found everything to our liking. There is a tv with 475 channels catering for the principal European languages (except Spanish) and Arabic. The apartment has wi-fi for an internet connection. There is a garden and swimming pools with life-guard very close. But to get around you need a car. There are two restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance but the municipality has made no considered for pedestrians who live or visit the many conurbations along the coast: the only road along the coast is a motorway. The apartment is less than a kilometer from the coast and the beaches to the west are excellent. Communication with the host was very fluent and his local agent was always at the ready to help.
Stayed for a week (myself, husband plus another couple) in the middle of September. The apartment was lovely, very well kitted out, everything you could want for a self catering stay, clean and comfortable. Only a couple of negatives, and they are very minor.
There was nowhere in the main bathroom to put any toiletries apart from in the shower (we moved a small trolley from the en suite bathroom into the bathroom and this helped).
Need at least 2 more sun loungers in the garden.
the pool bar right next to the apartment was closed, and we were informed that the pool would be closing for the winter within the next few weeks too. We spent a day by the pool but it was so quiet and lacked any atmosphere because of this. Not the fault of the owner of the apartment though of course & we heard from a permanent resident that they are trying to get this changed.
We had a lovely holiday in Toms apartment, the area is lovely, a car is needed which is not a problem and there are some lovely places to visit.
Just returned from an eleven night stay in the apartment and found it very comfortable and nicely located between two marina's Estepona and Duquesa with as many bars and restaurants as anyone could need.Although we didnt bother with the tv it has all the channels inc.sky that we have back home and wi-fi is provided.If we return to the area i would have no hesitation in renting it again.Perhaps an improved BBQ
would be my only suggestion.
We spent a very nice week in the Spain at Tom's property. We used it as a base to visit friends in Gibraltar (40 min drive) and see a bit more of the region. Having stayed on the complex in another apartment previously, we knew what we were coming to. Tom's apartment is well positioned with close proximity to a pool and seasonal bar (although the pool was shut when we were there, others were available). The apartment was clean and comfortable and had all the amenities we needed to prepare meals and wash clothes (there is no tumble drier), with the most comfortable seating we have experienced in a rental property, and we've rented a few!
All administration and communication have been punctual and we were met on time at the apartment by Lynn, who was very helpful.
There is basic internet WiFi in the apartment (that you pay 25€ and claim back from Tom),although TV does not currently work, Tom has told me that the TV and Internet service is shortly to be upgraded, this and a few suggestions made to Tom for a couple of improvements, will make this a 5 star property for us.
We will certainly be looking to stay at stay at the apartment again in the future, it really is an ideal location for a quiet out of season stay, although a car is a must.
We did not spend a great deal of time in the immediate area but would recommend the Aldi store for food, especially the bread, very good croissants for a supermarket. Our favourite restaurant was Bahia Beach on Casares Beach, great location and excellent food.
Thank you Tom, we look forward to staying with you again in the future.
On the quiet side of Estepona, comfortable clean apartment , car necessary. Any problems we had were quickly sorted by owner Tom, and rental manager Lynne.
One draw back if staying for long periods no TV channels however able to stream channels via Internet onto computer.
We had a great month , excellent weather for January, would recommend Estepona golf course greens in excellent condition.
Overall a great holiday and lovely apartment .
