This renter wrote to us after staying in the apartment for their second holiday....

Dear John and Maureen,

Just thought I would drop you a line to say we had a great holiday renting your apartment on the Costa del Sol! It was lovely to feel right at home as soon as we got there! Everything at the apartment was as good as we remembered and the new sun loungers were great! The new security gates make the complex so secure. The place was very quiet - the kids had the pool to themselves most mornings. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It's such a lovely place.

Thanks again. You'll probably hear from us again!

About John Cassidy

John & Maureen live in Essex and have owned in Spain for over 14 years. We have rented our property to holidaymakers from the beginning, so have plenty of experience. We enjoy socialising, golf, good food and drink. The time we are able to spend on the Costa del Sol allows us to indulge in all of these and more, along with our great neighbours and many friends we have made in Spain. We are happy to pass on our local knowledge to our renters with their personal preferences in mind.

John Cassidy purchased this apartment in 2002

Why John Cassidy chose Mijas area

We viewed many properties over a year or more before we purchased, getting a good idea of what was available and value for money. The moment we set foot in Calahonda Golf complex we were smitten! The apartments were well established with a sound community and finances. There were three pools in well-manicured and lush gardens with eye candy views of the pools and golf course.It was clear that the whole area was complete and that there was no possibility of new builds occurring, so the beauty of the area would remain untouched. And the golf club and a new tennis club were just a couple of minute’s walk, as were, a couple of handy restaurants. Centrally placed on the Costa del Sol, it is easy to get to many attractions along the coast and there are several beaches to choose from.

What makes this apartment unique

When they are around, we have some great neighbours, friendly and helpful, always willing to lend a helping hand and stop for a chat. We have had many nice people rent from us and our aim is to always remember that it is YOUR holiday and we are happy to help with advice to ensure you will enjoy every minute, often recommending some fantastic places we have found, or know of, which will enhance your time in Spain. Some of our renters have re-booked five or six times!

There are 2 sets of golf clubs in the apartment along with a set for a junior. All right handed. Our golf club is a 9 hole par 3’s and is family friendly and the tennis club can be used on a day ticket with coaching if wanted. Under half mile to the main strip with restaurants, pubs and bars, supermarket and despite the bad press on the Euro, dining out and shopping is not expensive here. If you want to live it up and push the boat out there are some top end restaurants within a few minutes drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi John,

Just to say we all had a fantastic time in your lovely apartment. Everywhere is so beautifully kept -we loved it. Being June it was pretty quiet and some days we had a pool to ourselves. We may well book again next for June and would highly recommend it. We took care of it as we would our own homes so am sure you will find all is well. Thanks so much

Kind regards Gill

Hello John,

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the rent of your apartment at la siesta golf. We had a great holiday and the apartment was superb. It was immaculately clean (we tried to leave it as we found it) was very quiet and in lovely surroundings. The DVD player was a godsend especially the inspired choice of 'the very unlucky leprechaun' our 7 yr old watched it every morning when he got up!! If we need an apartment again we wouldn’t hesitate to use the same one again and recommend it to anyone.

Once again many thanks for a very enjoyable week

Richard, Cheryl and Corey.

Holiday at Calahonda Golf

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at the apartment..The scenery is beautiful from the verandah of the golf course, the greenery, swimming pools etc and the scent from the flowers and shrubs that surround the apartment is fabulous. Everything is spotless and well cared for, the clubhouse just up the hill is a great place to relax too with a view down the 9th hole which is stunning.The apartment has everything you could want and the owner John did everything to make our holiday go very smoothly. We will certainly go back here with no hesitation. a definate 5 stars from my family and myself.

Perfect for golf and tennis

  • 4 of 5

We spent a ten days holiday in the middle of February in the community of Calahonda. We were lucky having chosen John’s apartment for our base. When arriving we realized several good features in the apartment which made us to choose the same apartment for another week in March.

The apartment is located just at a nice par-3 golf course, La Siesta Golf Club. Other Golf Clubs are found within a radius of 10 - 15 minutes car drive. We enjoyed especially golf courses like Miraflores, Lauro Golf and Calanova club.

At sunset time sitting on the patio of the apartment and watching the beautiful view to the sea gave an enjoyable ending to the day. We were enjoying good restaurants as well; easy to reach were La Siesta Golf Club restaurant and Dos Leones within 200 meters.

Car is useful (if looking for other golf clubs) but not necessary, we were lucky to have friends with cars living in a close neighbourhood.

Swimming pool was looking nice blue, however we were too eager to play golf to have any time for it

Very clean and has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

When we first entered the Calahonda Golf complex we were very happy to see how well looked after and maintained it is. The apartment didn't let us down either - it was exceptionally clean and had a nice homely feel to it. It also contained everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. The pool was just a few steps down from the apartment, which was very handy and it got the sun all day. We enjoyed some drinks on the veranda most evening taking in the peaceful atmosphere. The nearest supermarket and as well as a good range of bars/restaurants are about a 10-15 minute walk away. All in all we were totally happy with both the apartment and the local amenities and would not hesitate to recommend it highly!

Great Stay at Casa John

  • 5 of 5

The location of this holiday apartment is ideal where you can sit in the sunshine outside and enjoy a lovely glass of wine and just listen to the birds. The grounds are kept in pristine condition as is the swimming pool. It enjoys long spells of sunshine from just after noon through to sunset. The apartment is well furnished and is equally well equipped. Very much a place like home but in warmer climes.

We shall return in the not too distant future.

Thank you

Mike & Joan Baker Lyme Regis

Ideal apartment for a couple or a family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment clean and well equipped with all the requirements for a holiday retreat and more importantly air conditioned if required. We stayed 18 days and enjoyed our stay with no snags or complications. The surroundings i.e. the golf club, pools and grounds are well cared for and secure. We would highly recommend it to friends and family. The owner provided all the information regarding the apartment and local places of interest as well as who to contact in case of an emergency. There are several restaurants in the town and surrounding area with various tennis and golf facilities.
