Townhouse in Calahonda, Costa del Sol, Spain - Only 5 Minutes to all Amenities

- 13 Sep 2018
We bought the property after owning an apartment high up in the hills of Calahonda which was fabulous but just impractical for us as we are getting older and creakier! We fell in love with this one and its location and fantastic setting and jumped at it since very few properties here come onto the market. We made the expensive move - without selling the other one first so I think that shows what we thinks of this town house! Anyway after a costly 12 months we sold the first property and were then able to put some money to this and had the main bathroom totally refurbished last summer and are planning to do the same to the downstairs shower room in the coming year. We love chilling out in Calahonda, only problem is we don't have chance to use it more often!
Owner purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Owner chose Sitio de Calahonda
We feel that Calahonda is in a perfect location - within easy driving distance of the well known resorts of Marbella and Fuenguerola, but with less hustle and bustle that you find there, particularly in the peak months. For us the balance of what is on offer in Calahonda is just right. Also we find that in bars and restaurants the prices are a little cheaper than you would expect to pay in say Marbella or Puerto Banus. If you want to see live entertainment or go to a karaoke bar then you will find them, but there is the right mixture of those places, local tapas bars and a great choice of restaurants . The driving distance from the airport - about 30-45 minutes means that for us, quite often a weekend break is feasible with cheap budget flights.
What makes this Villa unique
We have tried to make the property home from home so apart from the obvious cups, plates and pans, we have supplied board games, packs of cards, CDs and DVDs. There are inflatables to use at the beach, umbrellas and beach mats, tennis racquets for the court on the complex, maps and information about local places of interest. We find that a lot of guests love the community gardens and pool that they don't bother making a trip to the beach. If you don't hire a car then shops and restaurants are but a short walk away, but the town house is secluded enough that none of the noise is picked up. Calahonda beach is a 5 minute walk for those who love the sea air, but there are views of the Med from the property.

Lovely townhouse in a quiet but ideal location
House had everything you needed. It was relaxing sitting out on the garden terrace in the sunshine but also had choice of the balcony off the bedroom. Christine was really helpful with info & sounded friendly. Will definitely recommend this rental.
Thank you for the feedback and I hope you were successful in your search for a long term rental. Thoughtful and practical guests.
Lovely house and excellent location!
We had a great time! The house had all the things you would expect, the gardens and pool are lovely and well maintained!
Good location, well equipped and comfortable
I have just returned after a 4 day holiday in Calahonda with our two boys. The villa was just as advertised and really well located for the local shops, restaurants, beaches and, most importantly for us, the local tennis club. All in all we had a really lovely time and would definitely return.
can't honestly say what we were expecting, but the house is lovely, in a nice residential area, very clean and all the amenities you will need for self catering (cooker,microwave,toaster,washer,fridge/freezer) and a choice of 3 supermarkets to choose from within a 10 minute -at the most- walking distance, we were warned that if using public transport that there would be a bit of a hill up to the road the house is located in, however we found it no problem (we are in our early 60's),the grounds around the house are so lovely, with a decent size swimming pool, it was so nice to sit out on the lower terrace but the upper terrace was a truly relaxing place to sit, we found no problems getting around by public transport but for peace of mind and 20euros we took a taxi to fuengerola train station when we came home (even though the buses appeared to be reliable), in fact we enjoyed this holiday so much we are going again in september..........roll on! extra note, there are lots of really good places to eat if you don't fancy cooking inhouse.
Hele fijne tijd gehad!
Huisje was groot genoeg voor ons tweeën. Fijn dat er wat voorraad is voor het begin. WiFi haperde soms. Warm water was snel op. Vraag me wel af hoe dit dan met 4 personen moet, wanneer deze allemaal moeten douchen.
