About John Cassidy

John & Maureen live in Essex and have owned in Spain for over 18 years. We have rented our property to holidaymakers from the beginning and have many returning guests, 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 Sitio de Calahonda

We viewed many properties for over a year or more before we purchased, getting a good idea of what was on offer. The moment we set foot in Calahonda Golf complex we were smitten! The apartments were well established with a sound and well managed community.There are three pools in beautifully maintained, 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. 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 amazing beaches to choose from within minutes.

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 3 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, or inexpensive cab journey. About 4 miles away is Olivia's restaurant and night spot owned by Elliot Wright, featured in ITV's Playa in Marbella. A great night out, usually rubbing shoulders with one or two TOWIE personalities. Well worth a visit

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.

Great little find at Calahonda Golf Siesta

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've stayed in John's apartment in the Calahonda Hills and there are many reasons why we will keep on coming!

His apartment is allocated in beautifully appointed gardens with a choice of quiet pools. The HUGE benefit for the Costa Del Sol is the peace and quiet especially at night, although you're just a 5 minute drive from all the action on the coast ( would definitely advise renting a car, although taxis are readily available ) The gorgeous beaches of La Cala and Cabopino are 10 mins away by car.

John makes bookings a doddle and is always available to help or advise. There is a choice of excellent tapas bars and restaurants just down the the road plus great markets and supermarkets if you're planning a night in on the lovley terrace.

Highly recommended

What a great holiday we have had!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in Spain in this beautiful apartment overlooking the golf course and surrounded by lovely lush landscaped Mediterranean gardens bursting with colour and greenery and beautiful pools. A real home from home and very clean with some nice neighbours. The owner was extremely helpful and has great knowledge of local restaurants, golf courses etc. Shops, bars, and the golf course and tennis club are all within easy walking distance. I would definitely stay here again and would thoroughly recommend it.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is our second holiday in John's lovley apartment, and I 'm just about to book a third. The apartment is set in the tranquil grounds of Calahonda Golf. Superb pools, close to really good bars and restaurants, and has most 'mod cons' The superb beaches of Late Cala and Cabopino are a short drive or bus-hop away. Highly recommended.

Fantastic location for golf, relaxation and views

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful relaxing holiday in Spain. We stayed at this beautiful apartment located in Calahonda Golf, overlooking the golf course and surrounded by lovely landscaped gardens and two beautiful pools. The apartment is in a picturesque location and a real home from home and very clean.

The owner was extremely helpful with all our questions and has great local knowledge of local restaurants, golf courses etc. Shops, bars, and the golf course are all within easy walking distance. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

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
