About Stella Daniel
Hi I live with my two sons in Brighton, England. I work full time as a recruitment consultant within pharmaceuticals and clinical research. Having been a midwife my interests have always been in medicine and sciences. My partner is a fireman, and we love getting away to Spain when we can. Long term I would love to spend equal time in the UK and winter in Spain. I hate cold! In my spare time I sing in a duo, and you never know you might see me in the bars in Almerimar one of these days!
Stella Daniel purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Stella Daniel chose El Ejido
I chose this apartment in Spain because it is not too far to go if you fancy a quick getaway! The area of Almerimar I love because it is stil fairly unspoiled. This apartment I fell in love with when I saw that the views are peaceful and overlook the Nature Reserve. Birds are one my my hobbies, and I have left some binoculars in the flat just because I think it is really interesting to watch them closely, nesting and flying etc. So far I have seen a family of owls, and a nesting pair of prey birds ( not sure which ones!). I want people to enjoy the flat, the area, the peace and the local people are so very friendly. Lots of English ex pats A good old english bar CK's if you fancy it, and lots of real Spanish restaurants, where the Spanish love to eat, a good sign!
What makes this Apartment unique
This is a brilliant mixture of peace and beach holiday and or Golf if you love it, or perhaps your partner is a golf fanatic, while you and the kids skip off to the beach. 6 minutes and you are there. 1 minute and you are in the warm beautiful, safe pool with the guard there for your peace of mind. Lots of families enjoy this area. Everyone is friendly. The apartment itself is luxurious and fully equipped, I think we have thought of everything, even DVD's and CD's for the evenings, no laughing.... we want you to enjoy the flat, Almermar and the surounding areas, and want to hear what you think so that we can make it perfect for everyone. We hope you come back!

very tidy, wish we could of stayed longer. more than we expected
Very comfortable & well equipped!
Excellent base for a stay in Almerimar. Very spacious & comfortable, good location, short walk to D-Bar which was friendly with nice tapas.
Air conditioning was an added bonus given the August temperatures and the big balcony with the lovely view was bigger than expected with lots of furniture. The kitchen had everything you needed & the washing machine came in handy given we were staying in spain for 3 weeks with our middle week being in Almerimar. The TV was a bit awkward as after following the instructions to use the satellite system we could only get programmes on the screen for 2 mins at a time before they went off & you had to reset it to get another 2 mins. The movies however did work so we weren't really bothered given we were out so much anyway. The swimming pool was great, nice & big & not overcrowded, came handy for taking a quick dip at the end of the day. The complex overall was friendly, secure, well laid out & looked after.
Overall a lovely stay & we would happily book again.
Thank you, we have had the issue with the TV sorted out by our on tap IT guy in Almerimar, John. His phone number is in the property, sorry it was a problem -
Air con doubles up as heater in the cooler months too :)
The D Bar is literally just up the road opposite the bus stop outside the complex. Great for a quick bite
Great apartment and equiped as advertised
Agent met us on time and as agreed, even though it was the afternoon of New Years Day. Wonderful view over the wetlands to the deserted beaches from the stoep. Saw many kites and other rapters in the mornings.
It was a great 7 days break of warmer days and especially nights from the normal winter coolness of our Casa in the hills north of Velez Malaga.
We are definitely hoping to go back for another week before our winter ends.
Our thanks to Stella and to Pete
Thank you for your lovely review, we are admiring the view as I write, we too have seen the amazing variety of birds, including Eddie the eagle! We are indeed so lucky to have Pete and Pat looking after our guests even finding a locksmith on new year day! As ever we look forward to your return visit. When the UK has the miseries we were sitting on the beach sun bathing! Almerimar is a hidden gem, winter sun is only two and a half hours away after all
lovely property with great views, in a relaxed and local town.
We wanted to go to somewhere that was quiet and off the beaten track a little (not your brits abroad type of place!) and this place was perfect! The accommodation was great, we loved sitting out on the balcony for some sun downers after a hard day on the beach (although would say the beach is a 10-15min walk) whilst watching the flamingos in the near by nature reserve, and then wandering into town later in the evening.
The location was great for this and ideal for what we were looking for.
Great place and would visit again.
Lovely place for family,beautiful flat-very clean ,where was everything there we needed.
The owner- Stella was very helpful,very good contact with her.
We miss the vue from the balcony....:),and planning back there :)Magda,Sebastian and kids
Hello Stella, I'm sorry I meant to email you much sooner. We really enjoyed our two weeks in your apartment. Very nice to have the morning sun coming in and it was very spacious. We had good service to and from the airport (John?).maybe a bit pricey? We elected not to hire a car and did everything on foot and by bus/coach. For me it was a bit of slog to the town and supermarket but we gradually worked out the bus times.not very frequent) and of course they are very cheap. We did one tour with Pepe's tours into themountains which was very good.. Ann swam in the sea. I was frustrated not to be able to 'get on the water' with all those yachts there. Your help with emails and directions was brilliant. The only negatives were that a Spanish family above made a lot of noise till very late, it was difficult to work out the tv, but its in Spanish naturally, we watched videos. I chatted to Mathew in 'Leos' was it about buying an apartment there but I think I am getting too old to commit now and you are never sure who to trust!! Thanks. Martin.
Thank you for your kind review. Sorry you were disturbed by upstairs! I have generally had no problems hopefully a one off.
Glad you enjoyed the environs. I have put instructions in the apartment about the TV, along with a help line phone number to John our friendly IT expert in almerimar , there is access to UK programs, and films etc. sorry you didn't get to use the full potential of the system :)
Special interest holidays:
Birdwatchers very welcome. Aug/Sept 2012 39 different species were spotted, 75% of them from my balcony overlooking the Entinas Nature Reserve. Binoculars provided. Come out for spring 2013 for the migration period!
I have timed this walk myself at 6 minutes to the sea, beautiful unspoilt white sand beaches, with great facilities. Beach huts with running water and duck boards to the promenade, so you can clean off all that sand first! Umbrellas and sun loungers, reasonably priced at 4 Euros each when we were there last for a whole day! The sea is fantastic and a further walk along the prom for about 15 -20 minutes to the local shops and restaurants, makes it all a grand day out.
The nearest airport is Almeria, which is around a 30 minute drive to Almerimar. I can arrange for a much reduced rate than local taxis, but if you hire your car it is a straight drive west to Almerimar on uncrowded motorway. You can get about easily if you don't hire a car, but with golf equipment etc it is much easier and there is an allotted underground parking slot for this apartment with lift access. Hire rates with Easyjet eg are around 18E/day for a small car at time of writing.
Please see our website for all local attractions, such as Troglodyte Village, kids days out at the water park, Movie sets used for the spaghetti westerns are local too etc.
Just opened, a good Gym which both my fitness crazy sons used, 5 Euros per day pass per person, well equipped and friendly just near the first marina near Popular Bank
Local supermarket is a 15 minute walk or a quick drive away. Mercadona is well equipped with everything you might need and they have not hiked up prices for the tourist market either. Good Spanish fare can be found in good deli counters and I found local wine at 55c per carton! You will however come out humming the Mercadona ad...
