Why Fiona and Lily Saunders chose Sitio de Calahonda

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!!

Lovely apartment, fantastic pool and great area to stay

  • 5 of 5

It's always nerve wracking when you pull up to the place you have saved your money for and chosen to stay in for your holiday. We were pleasantly surprised every step of the way. The appartment has secure parking and is situated in a lovely neighbourhood good for families and couples alike. The surrounding apartments were a mix of residential and holiday lets which meant the pool wasn't jam packed with keen holiday makers. It's a good sized pool with a seperate toddler pool which is perfect for the kids and also for adults to get a good swim in. There is also a lifeguard on duty which set our minds at rest with having children. The pool and outside area was very clean and well kept.

The appartment itself was spacious, bright, well equipped and well decorated. There were a few supplies such as cooking oil, washing powder, lilo and a bucket and spade for our use which was extremely handy.

The area has a few bars and restaurants, we'd recommend christoffs and bogarts for good, traditional reasonably priced Spanish food, both within a short walk of the appartment.

The nearest beach was walkable, it was a fairly quiet beach with a couple of places to eat. We found another beach which was a 10 minute drive away called cabbapino beach which had better facilities / more varieties and was shaped into a cove so was safer and the water was calmer for the young children to play in.

There were several local supermarkets but the one we preferred was lidl as it was cheaper and had a larger variety.

Everyone in the area was pleasant and friendly. Everything about the stay was enjoyable. Communication when booking the appartment was good and nice that it was a personal response from the owners. I would highly recommend booking this appartment.

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.
