The complex also has secure resident’s car parking but a car is not essential due to the excellent apartment location.

Apartment location : Only 30 mins door-to-door from Malaga airport this spacious, newly refurbished apartment is ideal for a relaxing holiday yet it is close to all amenities in the town of Calahonda and 10-15kms from the bigger tourist towns of both Fuengirola and Marbella.

A major supermarket, banks and the beach are located 7-8 minutes walk away. And not to be missed is the beautiful little marina of Cabopino just a walk on the beach away.

Sights by Car: For guests with a car Calahonda is located in the middle of the Costa del Golf with 30-40 golf courses are located within a 45 minute radius.

Why Fiona and Lily Saunders chose Mijas area

We purchased this property in order to have a place in the sun and this particular apartment because of its location and its very large & spacious size. The location is wonderful, located at the bottom of the sometimes hilly Calahonda, it's location means that we never have to hire a car, only if we choose to do so. We can walk to the supermarket, the nearby tapas bar for some tapas or a drink in the sunshine, 2 mins walk from a range of restaurants & bars and a 5 mins walk to the beach.

Also, personally I am a swimmer and it is the only apartment complex that I have ever seen that has a proper 25m swimming pool with a shallow end and a deep end, perfect for swimming lengths or relaxing by the steps or in the shallow end. It is also set in a manicured garden meaning that your relaxing by the pool is not over concrete but cooling grass.

Lovely apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here July 2008 and loved it, the children enjoyed the pool and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the sun with a coffee (or something stronger!) watching them! Very private and safe, in a gated complex. Very relaxing!!

Good positioned apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment very clean and in a good position. The only thing I feel lets it down is the cooking facilities , oven very small. Ideal for 2 people unless you like to eat out every night.

Excellent Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Really nice and spacious and clean apt, family of 2 adults and 3 kids aged 12 to 7 had plenty of space and comfort, Fiona was very accomodating and easy to deal with. Apt very central to Restaurants and shops and pool had an extremely attentive and friendly life guard, local beach a bit rocky but Andy's beach a few km away was lovely. Would definitely go back to holiday there again.

lovely holiday

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful apartment with everything you need. Owner very helpful and informative. Area very nice with lots of places to visit within easy driving distance. Plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. Only disappointment hence 4stars was the fact that the pool was closed . Apparently, no lifeguard -no pool. This was a real shame as the weather was beautiful . Luckily we love the beach. Would go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Christine, Thank you very much for your review and I am delighted that you had a lovely stay at the apartment. Yes earlier this year there was a change to Spanish law regarding large swimming pools and the need to have a qualified lifeguard on duty at all times. While the weather is often lovely in October the community residents felt that from October onwards (for the winter months) that a lifeguard was not required and hence the pool access will not be possible without a lifeguard. Thankfully the beach is very close as you mentioned and a good option for the winter months. Kind regards, Fiona.

Excellent apartment, very clean, very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 10-day stay at the apartment and can not wait to get back next year. Both my children (11 & 15) and my wife loved the place and the pool. Very secure and very quiet. The apartment itself is extremely clean and very comfortable. The air con is a great added feature. Fiona is a dream to deal with. We really could not fault it in anyway and will certainly aim to return in the future.
