Apartment in Estepona, Costa del Sol, Spain - Superb location for Sandy Blue Flag Beach (10 minute Walk) or stroll to the Marina (10 minute)
About Mary Morrison
Brian and I live in West Midlands, UK. Brian is a driving instructor and I am a Operations Manager. We have 5 grandchildren - Ellie, Sam, Isabelle, Noah and Grace. We decided to buy a property in Estepona because of its wonderful location and scenery. We have fallen in love with this beautiful area. The location of the apartment is ideal to walk to the beach, the port, to the old town shops and much more. Everything you need to enjoy your holiday is there for you and your family. We are involved in the local Elim Pentecostal Church. We have been part of mission to Tanzania, East Africa on 6 occasions which we found rewarding and challenging. Although working full time Mary enjoys looking after her allotment, Brian doesn't always enjoy what Mary has grown! I have partially retired now working 3 days a week. Extra time for my allotment!
Mary Morrison purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Mary Morrison chose Estepona
We purchased the property 'off plan' in 2009. It took a few years to get completion but now it has all been worth it. The area is a perfect location for either a total chill - just sitting on the balcony watching the world go by, a stroll to the beach or the Port or looking round the Spanish Town and shops. We have added wi fi and full English TV. The apartment is well looked after, has excellent quality furniture and is popular with guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
We enjoy the convenient location of the property. Ideal to pop down the road to buy fresh rolls for breakfast and get some fresh fruit. The property never seems to get hot and stuffy and is always welcoming when you return from a day on the beach or a day trip. There is also something good about the fragrance as you walk into the foyer and lift. It is cleaned regularly and the fragrance lingers. The apartment is secure and safe too with vision intercom system. The location is perfect - just a pleasant walk away from the Marina or the beach. Dawn looks after the property for us. It is kept immaculate and so very clean. We provide towels including beach towels. You are welcome to use our sun beds and beach chairs. You now have the benefit of secure wi fi and apple tv.

Great place to stay
Everything was fantasticly easy from booking the apartment, the payments and communications from the owner. Mary provided great accommodation in a wonderful location and even supplied a meet and greet service on the day of arrival. This is how all private lettings should be managed.
Lovely, well equipped apartment. The pool are was also clean and well maintained. Supermarkets within walking distance. Dawn met us and was very welcoming. She also responded very quickly when we had a minor issue with changing the gad cylinder. The only drawback was the very hilly nature of Estepona. Although the beach and port were not that far away the homeward journey involved some quite steep hills. However, it kept us fit. Thanks to Dawn and Mary.
Really comfortable and spacious apartment. All facilities you would require. Good value for money.
We are so glad you had a good time. We have made a real effort to provide every facility required in self catering accommodation.
Hello Mick and thank you for your review. You are right the location is perfect. We love strolling down to the Port to have our evening meal - a really great setting.
I hear the weather wasn't that kind to you - I wish I could put that right but so glad everything else was good.
A very pleasant, sunny apartment
We spent 9 weeks in this apartment. On arrival it was very clean and tidy. All your requirements were catered for, well equipped kitchen, good size living room and bedrooms. The apartment had bars/restaurants close by, the port was a 10-15 mins walk, as was the old town.
Dawn was always on hand if any queries occurred, and was most helpful.
We had a very pleasant stay, and would certainly stay again.
Thank you so much for your review. Brian and I are pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment. You are right that it is a bright and sunny apartment and the location is perfect. We do our best to think of everything needed for our guests.
We thank you for your booking and you are welcome to return anytime.

This apartment was perfect for our holiday. It had everything we needed to make our holiday enjoyable. It was very clean and well presented. With having a baby and two teenagers it was great to have the laundry facilities and the equipment we needed for the baby. The location is great with a 5 min drive to the beach and local restaurants and Estepona is such a beautiful place. I would highly recommend and will definitely be going back again.
Thank you so much for your review.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We have provided everything we can think of to make your stay enjoyable - even a cool box for your picnic.
It is great to have a choice of walking to the main Rada beach or taking a short drive to the cove which is ideal for young children - and to get free parking on the beach too!
You are welcome to return anytime.

Superb blue flag Estepona La Rada beach is within 10 minutes walk (0.6 miles). The beach is a long sandy beach. The superb sandy Cristo cove (beautiful blue flag beach) is a 3 minute drive. The cove has shallow water and is an ideal beach for children. The Port / Marina is 10 minute stroll away - an ideal place for your evening meal. Water sports are in the area. Boat excursions / fishing trips sale from the marina.
Malaga airport is probably the most convenient -45 minute drive from the airport to the apartment, although Gibraltar Airport is also an option. From the airport you can travel by motorway which brings you within 3 minutes of the apartment or by the coast road. Car hire is available from Malaga Airport or there are transfers by taxi or bus. Once at Estepona a car is not needed as everything is to hand. We can put you in touch with car transfer if you prefer not to hire.
Puerto Banus is a 15 minute drive. Duquesa 10 minute drive, Marbella 15 to 20 minute drive. Ronda is a convenient drive away - as is Selwo Adventure park.
Eat Out: The Marina has an excellent choice of restaurants: Italian, Chinese, Indian, Irish, and much more.
Eating in: Lidl and Mercadona supermarkets are 2-3 minute walk. Excellent kitchen facility. I have provided everthing I can think of for self catering.
Shopping: Old Spanish town 10 minute walk. The old town has retained it's Spanish charm - but there are also modern shops. Banks - several banks in the Town and along the promenade.
Hospital: 5 minute walk. Chemists - several - some stay open 24/7
Bike hire: (hire shop within 5 minutes walk). Estepona is ideal for bike riding with a choice of the promenade/beach front area or the more challenging mountainous area of Sierra Bermeja mountains, a national reserve with scenery which will take your breath away.

Soft play area within walking distance for children.
Horse Riding: You can take lessons or hire a horse at Estepona's Escuela de Arte Ecuestre. If you travel west along the coast to Tarifa, at the southernmost tip of Spain, you can hire horses for fabulous rides across the miles of unspoilt sand dunes which overlook the Strait of Gibraltar and the coast of North Africa.
Walking:Take a stroll through one of the town's many beautiful parks or head into the beautiful Sierra Bermeja mountains. There are 4 museums in town. The area's past has included long periods of domination by Romans and Moors. Museums: are located within the town's bullring (5 minure walk) - they include a bull-fighting museum with glittering costumes donated by some of Spain's top bullfighters.
