Why carolyn goodman chose Mijas

We love the area as it is close to everything. The mountain area of Mijas which is beautiful all year around, the Marbella area, the local Fuengirola area. Its close proximity to Malaga and overall ideal perfect spot for golf, relaxation, shopping, horse riding, entertainment and all round fun!there are lots of free things to do, free entertainment every night on site. very quiet area away from it all but near enough if you need or want to find the noisey social life. water parks and beaches are very close by. you can use all the clc facilities including free Paint balling, football, archery, sangria making, yoga and nightly entertainment to rival any along the coast and its free !!!

What makes this apartment unique

situated on Club La Costa we are in a private development so are set back from any noise, but within a 2 minute ( max) walk to all the amenities and entertainment. There is a small train which takes you to the resort facilities if you don't fancy. walk.. also drops you near the beach which is only a 6 minute walk away anyway x there are lots of things to do in the main town of Fuengiroa which is easily accessed by bus... there is a large water park, lots of restaurants, beautiful blue flag beaches with bouncy assault courses and jet ski hire or relaxing beaches with just a nice bar and your sun lounger ! so something for everyone... we are happy to point you in the right direction and will collect nay discount vouchers for the attractions you may wish to try,

Our hosts Caroline and Dean were excellent! Very welcoming and helpful with tips for the area.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and spacious, perfect for our family of four. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and the large front terrace was perfect for some lazy days as the weather was very kind to us. The Club La Costa resort on which the apartment was on the edge of, had plenty to do including two heated pools and a very well equipped gym. The kids loved the train which runs round the resort, it was great to catch to make use of other pools and bars. The restaurants looked a bit expensive and we chose to eat at a local restaurant Donna Maria's that was recommended to us by Caroline. This was so good and very reasonable that we went there 3 times in a week! I would recommend booking as even on a Tuesday in February it was full. We did have a hire car from the airport and saw a fair bit of the area including Mijas Pueblo, Marbella, La Cala de Mijas and Fuengirola. All of which were worth a visit.

All in all, a fabulous winter break in a great apartment. Highly recommend!

Alto Loma , quiet and friendly

  • 4 of 5

very relaxing with easy access either walking or by train to various places on the complex. The beach was rather rugged near by but the beach in Furengerola was nice and the old town La Cala was also good with plenty of people about. The apartment was good and our hosts Carolyn and Dean were exceptional, couldn't do enough for us

Carolyn and Dean were great on showing us the property and for any information needed. We had a great time. There is so much to do on the premises that you only need to leave for the beach. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful place for family and couples

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay here its clean tidy and child friendly just beautiful. We had a warm welcome from Carolyn and Dean. They explains everything we needed to know places to see and to eat.The apparent was spacious and comfortable. The best part for us was the beautiful terrace close to the swimming Poole and you could see the sea. We were asked would we like anything from the shops befor arrival and this was a lovely extra as when you have a baby it's nice to be able to have food and drink so your relaxed and don't have to worry on the first day. There was a local shop on site which was walking distance and it had everything we needed from fresh bread, croissant and lots more. It's a safe gated area and the complex around was lovely you just can hop on a train and there was different restaurants on site also could grab a taxi at good rates.For all different occasions family or couples it's perfect. It's a short walk down to a beautiful beach bar were you can enjoy a cocktail or 2.

There lots more but would reacommend this apparent to anyone as it's just a great place and lovely owners and atmosphere.

Fantastic place to stay and everything you need. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 lovely weeks in Carolyn and Dean's ground floor apartment. After arriving we were given a guided tour of the important areas - Restaurants, shops and pools - and some important pieces of information that would make our stay trouble free. Overall a really good balance between telling us the things we would want to know and letting us discover things for ourselves.

The apartment had everything we needed and we loved the self catering aspect - no buffet madness! Large supermarkets were a short taxi ride which was handy and the complex had a shop with the basics available - also a very nice mini market 5 mins round the corner.

The weather was brilliant and this helped of course. The kids spent most of their time in the pool which due to the time of year felt like it was our own private pool. Really clean and refreshing. There was also access to other pools which we tried but we always came back to the pool below the apartment as it was our favourite.

I would really recommend this place to stay and we've already discussed when we're going to return.

Brilliant place and brilliant holiday.

Thank you Carolyn and Dean.
