About John Cassidy
John & Maureen live in Essex and have owned in Spain for over 19 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 bought, 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, we have eye candy views of the pools and the 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 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, stop for a chat, or give advice. 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 our knowledge, 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

Definitely worth another visit!
Great property, exactly the location we were looking at, well kept place, smooth transaction with the owner. The owner was super helpful and communicated very proactively.
Many thanks for the great review! I'm so pleased you had a good time and it's nice to be appreciated. Many of our renters book return visits, so please give as much notice as you can and it will always be a pleasure to help with your holiday accommodation and advice in the future.

What a great holiday we have had!
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.
Great little find at Calahonda Golf Siesta
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.
Thank you for the glowing review! Always a pleasure to hear from you.
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.
Thanks for your kind comments! Looking forward to welcoming you again on your next and third stay in the apartment. Always a pleasure.

Many people are surprised to learn that the Costa del Sol in Spain also offers a wide ranger of winter sports, such as skiing and snowboarding.
The number one location in Spain is in Andalucia, near Granada in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, only two hours drive on Costa del Sol.
With 80km of ski slopes including 45 pistes and 6 off-piste routes, you can get around using the 2 cable cars, 12 chair lifts and 5 ski lifts. The pistes include Green, Blue, Red and Black runs.The resort is open 9am to 5pm, including weekends and bank holidays and also offers night skiing.
Snowboarding has really taken off at the resort and there is now a snow park complete with jumps.The village at the resort offers a range of inexpensive hotels and Apartments for overnight stays, restaurants, shops and ski/snowboard Rentals. The season runs for four or five months of the year, but it is also a beautiful place to visit out of season.
