About the property

Sleeps 8, Shared Pool and Tennis, Close to Beach, Golf and a great Town

3 Bedroom duplex apartment sleeps 6 in bedrooms and 2 on a sofa bed in the living room. Modern (built 2006), well equipped and on a very highly rated development with a great swimming pool and tennis.

For our English guests, we have UK TV.

Just 10 min walk from La Cala de Mijas - one of the few towns on the Costa del Sol that has a level underpass for the N340 (no need to risk life and limb dashing over this busy road or to climb endless steps over bridges) - which has all the facilities you might need on your visit including supermarkets, restaurants, banks, bars, cafes and a beautiful sandy beach with safe swimming.

Convenient for many golf courses, the closest of which is La Noria (9 hole, 18 hole and driving range).

40km west of the airport at Malaga, on a well kept, gated development, this duplex apartment has secure parking, fresh decor, fully fitted kitchen, hot/cold air conditioning, great views from the large terrace and a peaceful location - no drunk crowds keep you awake at night here.

Offered on a self catering basis, ideal for families

We use a great local agent, LCS Management (English and Spanish speaking), who will help with pretty much anything that you need any help with. The apartment will be clean and tidy on your arrival and you can just up and go on departure day.

The town of La Cala de Mijas is a wonderful place. As well as a great beach (with a long promenade), there are 3 supermarkets (Aldi, Lidl, Super Sol & Mercadona), plenty of restaurants, parks and playgrounds, cafes, bars and a famous cabaret venue. There is a large market a couple of days a week too. La Cala is also one of the few towns along the coast that seems to have money to spend on the infrastructure. New parks, new things on the beach, the lovely new promenade walk and more. It is a thriving town and a nice place to be.

There are several very high quality restaurants in the town, including a new one from May 2015 called The Little Geranium which is run by a chef that has owned a Michelin Star winning restaurant in the UK previously.

The beach side walkway stretches from La Cala right to Cabopino. It is very accessible for walking, pushchairs, wheelchairs, scooters, bicycles etc. Level and well constructed in concrete and wood, it is an easy path with beautiful scenery, loads of cafes and bars and runs right along the beach.

New for 2015, this is a major attraction on the Costa del Sol. Already people are coming from miles around to La Cala to enjoy the lovely walk along the coast. A must see.

Why Jonathan Powell chose Mijas

We spent a lot of time looking at a lot of developments before settling on this one. We chose La Cala as it is very nice, clean and friendly town with great amenities. The Navigolf development is out of the town centre, quiet, secure, family friendly and fully occupied. The gardens and pool are in great condition and there is a nice balance of locals and tourists living on the development.

The apartment is well equipped and an easy place to stay. Full kitchen, en suite bathroom, UK TV and a very large terrace to sit out in the sun. The communal pool is large and has beautiful gardens around it.

Easy to find and just 40km from the airport.

What makes this apartment unique

One of the few places on the coast where you can cross the N340 coast road easily - by underpass rather than by bridge. The underpass is a nice route into town, safe at all times and with well kept flower beds etc.

La Cala is a wonderful place for a holiday - so much so that many people return year after year.

La Cala Duplex, a great holiday let in the lovely town of La Cala. All our holiday rental customers enjoy their holiday in La Cala de Mijas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found some reasonably cheap flights into Malaga, booked this apartment and off we went! The apartment is lovely - very nicely equipped. English TV was nice to have for us to keep up with the soaps (sad I know!). The town is nice and there are some great restaurants. We had a great time. The agent, Val, is very helpful too, even though it was the holiday period, she organised us a hire car very quickly and very cheaply.

The terrace is 37 m² and faces south easterly. The view is to the sea to the south and to the hills to the north and overlooks a golf course. On the development there is a great swimming pool, a kids paddling pool, 2 paddle tennis courts. Overall the mix on the development is a good balance of locals and others living here full time and holiday makers - the traffic is low and its a safe environment. The whole development is gated with restricted access so it is as safe as they come. The local town is a few minutes walk and has all the facilities you might need: supermarkets, beach, bars, restaurants, taxi rank etc. etc. Our agent lives locally and she is very helpful with all matters and has stacks of useful knowledge about the whole area.

Fabulous property and ideal location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay.We felt it gave us everything.10 -15 minutes from lovely small town and beach.lLovely Boardwalk 5k.The apartment was very spacious for 7 people and had everything one needs..5 minutes from an aldi for basic groceries.We got plenty of exercise as located on a hill!This may not suit everyone but suited us.Only downside for us is when one of the boys explored the letterbox to find a hive of bees!Thankfully no major casualties.

Very nice

  • 3 of 5

Lovely property, quiet residential safe area, had everything we were looking for, spacious, clean and comfortable, big enough for our large party. Only thing that would've made things easier is a high hair for the baby.

Beautiful villa lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

we had such a lovely holiday, the villa was very well equipped for our family of 8, very lovely place to stay, very clean and well maintained. The owner has been very helpful with any questions we had before our holiday. The kids highlight of the holiday was the pool, and seeing the dolphins jumping in and out of the sea at la Cala beach. Amazing place to go for a self catering holiday, we will be back next year.

Great location, immaculately clean too!

  • 3 of 5

This apartment is very conveniently situated in a new complex a couple of minutes drive from Mijas Costa town. The complex is gated and feels very secure. A 5-10 minute walk across scrubland (easy to walk paths) gets you to the local Lidl and Aldi shops for supplies too.

The flat itself is beautifully clean and fresh. The bedroms, a king and two twin rooms were perfect for our needs as our little grandson could have his own room! The lounge, kitchen and large patio are great areas too, and the kitchen is well equipped.

Unfortunately nobody informed us that the onsite pool closes at the end of August. That was the reason we chose to stay at this apartment so we were really disappointed, obviously. There are no public pools within easy driving distance and local hotels don't allow day guests so we bought a paddling pool for the patio. Hardly the same as a lovely big fresh water pool though!

This would have been a five star experience for a family for whom a pool was not a very important part of their holiday enjoyment.

Owner's Response: The pool does not close. It is open all year round. We regularly use the pool on Xmas day. However, it is only staffed by Lifeguards from in the height of summer to the end of August.

Unfortunately didn't get an opportunity to stay

  • 1 of 5

Booked this apartment on 10 August 2015 and paid the deposit through BACS as requested for 9 Aug to 16 Aug 2016.

On 28 July 2016 I attempted to pay the remainder only to be told my booking was cancelled, a mere 12 days before six of us were due to travel. Had it not been that I made contact I sincerely doubt I would have been informed.

The deposit was refunded with nothing more that a 'sorry'.

At such short notice we were very fortunate to get another apartment as the Costa Del Sol is very busy at present.

I'm sure the apartment is lovely however if you are considering booking please get some form of insurance on it.

Perfect and booked for next year

  • 4 of 5

I have stayed on the complex before but at a different apartment. The apartment was clean, tidy and had everything we needed for a family of 5. I had exchanged emails with the owner prior and he responded in a timely fashion. We picked the keys up from Val (the property agent) with no issue. The apartment is on the top tier of the complex but having stayed here before I knew about the stairs to the pool and don't cause us any issues.

The villa is very reasonable and we have booked again for next year.

The villa is a good location for the town, beach and shops
