About Susan Chuback

Susan Chuback purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Susan Chuback chose West Costa del Sol

On our first trip to Costa del Sol, we explored the entire area as tourists. However, after a few days we fell in love with Arroyo de la Miel (River of Honey). We felt that this area truly represented the real Spain.

Arroyo de la Miel in particular is accessible to all activities, yet quiet and

tranquil (or 'relaxed', a word we heard a lot when we first moved here )

Many cafes, restaurants and bars are walking distance. It is a short drive to the airport, shopping centers and to the 16 beaches in the area.

It was clear in the end that Casa del Sol was not only the "house in the sun" but was also a home between the mountains and the sea.

What makes this apartment unique

The Gold Suite and The Platinum Suite .

The spacious suites include a kitchenette equipped with a full size refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, kettle, cutlery and tableware.

In addition, each suite has an ensuite with rain shower and LG COOL air-conditioned/heating with a free-view digital and APPLE TV with NETFLIX on a flat screen 36inch LG television.

The rooms are decorated in Vintage Contemporary Style, indulging in comfort and luxury with a king size memory foam mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets and ample wardrobe space. The garden and private pool is south facing and is perfect for relaxing in the sun. The Sunroom has its glass folding windows open revealing views of yachts sailing by on the horizon and its' fully retractable roof allows guests to enjoy a beverage of their choice under the stars.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Trip-advisor:

“Casa del Sol is the most beautiful and relaxing place you could ever wish to stay”

Reviewed July 19/13

Everything about this property was wonderful. The suites were beautiful, opening out onto a beautiful terrace and pool. The breakfast and afternoon tea was wonderful. The 4 days we spent there were truly blissful. Nothing was too much trouble for the owner and the attention to detail was second to none. Even down to the bubbly, bottled water and soft drinks in the fridge on arrival. Providing towels for the pool and beach, and even a travel plug adaptor in the rooms. Could match any 5star accommodation.

“I can't wait to go back!!”

Reviewed July 18/13

This is the first 'girls' holiday I have been on for many years and the first time I have flown for nearly 10 years. I just wanted some sun and a relaxing environment. This is exactly what I got but so much more. This was the most luxurious, perfect holiday I could have imagined. The attention to detail is superb.

Perfect hideaway retreat

  • 5 of 5

We booked to stay at 'Casa del Sol' on the basis of such wonderful reviews and beautiful photographs and we were not disappointed. We were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and also renewing our vows at a nearby location and we wanted to find somewhere special that was both relaxing and private. Casa del Sol had everything we wanted and more.

Susan (the owner) was the perfect host. From the offset Susan communicated with us before our arrival and was very helpful. We were asked about choice of beverages and any allergies. She also explained exactly where she would be when collecting us from the Airport, even down to what colour dress she would be wearing.

We were taken by Susan to the villa and were amazed at how beautiful it actually was. The whole villa was completely immaculate, not a speck of dust or dirt to be seen. We even tested the top of the satellite TV box for dust but there was none whatsoever. The fridge was full of our favourite drinks and we had a lovely champagne welcome. We were made to feel at home by Susan and she explained how to use everything we needed.

All appliances and furnishings were top spec and we had absolutely everything we could ever need or think of: Tweezers, razors, toothbrushes, towels, sewing kit, first aid kit, sun tan lotion, insect repellent, to name a few! There was not a thing that Susan hadn't thought of.

The meals at Casa del Sol were on another level to anything we had experienced before. Every day we looked forward to breakfast and afternoon tea in the pretty sun room. We were treated like royalty by Susan and effort was always made by ensuring we were happy with everything. The sea views from the sun room were absolutely stunning and every day the table was laid differently. It was pure paradise.

Every day the rooms were cleaned to an exceptional standard and we were provided with clean and luxurious towels for the pool area and shower.

Susan gave us 3 free rides and even took us to the place where we renewed our vows. It was very helpful that Susan was so experienced with the area and because of that we were able to see some amazing attractions such as a falconry show, theme park, market, beach and a quaint village with the most amazing restaurant.

There is not a bad word to say about Casa del Sol and it has been our best holiday yet. We will most definitely be returning and would recommend to anyone that is looking for a holiday that has that special something.

Great 2nd stay

  • 5 of 5

2nd visit to Casa Del Sol and we were as impressed as we were on the 1st visit. Everything spotless and we were again, well looked after. Susan's breakfast's and cake making skills are fab, you definitely won't be hungry for the rest of the day! I was also 23 weeks pregnant on this holiday and Susan & Bruno got us some beautiful gifts for the baby. We were also lucky enough to meet Susan's mum this time round. They feel like old friends now! We will be going back next year with our new baby and a testament to Susan's organisational skills, has already given us details on where to hire car seat etc from. Thankyou from us and both and we look forward to seeing you next year!

Disappointed no privacy

  • 1 of 5

I would like to express my personal feelings of this boutique hotel, excellent facilities .but the attitude of my host. a lot to be desired

When we arrived we were told it takes 11/2 hrs to clean a room each day, but not told about all our toiletries and shoes being rearranged as she would like including medicine pill box into drawers . I now understand everything has its place but I paid for this room and not to have my personal items moved, food good but make sure you don't drop any or you will be reminded with a dust pan and brush. I would say it was a uncomfortable stay we don't all want to be pressurised into eating in restaurants .

I think it was very unprofessional of Susan to contact ahead by phone to my next host owner to discussed her facilities or my personal details of my second leg of my two week holiday in Marbella. There was a lack of comfortable chairs to sit and watch the television other than having to lay on the bed , but my experience did not inspire me to relax sitting outside on a warm evening owing to be restricted what time I went to bed by having to text Susan so she could tidy up and put the cushions away I thought this was my holiday , after having a dip in the pool I left a lilo floating in the pool to lay on a sunbed only to have it extracted by Susan ! There is no privacy whatsoever

Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a 10 day stay at Casa del Sol. A very chilled out and relaxing time in a beautiful suite. The accommodation and both pool area and garden are spotlessly clean and first class. Susan our host was superb and her breakfasts a treat ( a different theme each morning!) Would highly recommend and would definitely return! Thanks again Susan

Glad I found this place!

  • 5 of 5

Booked this hotel long in advance as it looked a beautiful place to relax after what was planned to be a busy year and reviews suggested that it was very good. Boy was I not disappointed! Before we departed Susan emailed to get our favourite drinks and food preferences for breakfast, I squealed in delight as the holiday was almost upon us. Susan picked us up at the airport on arrival and settled us into the Gold suite which was beautifully furnished with remarkable attention to detail. Once settled we had a glass of bubbly and took in the breath taking view over Benalmadena. The pool and garden area is just gorgeous and so spotless, they really have thought about everything. Susan’s home cooked breakfasts & cakes for afternoon tea were delicious and had a different theme everyday, which we loved.

Susan & Bruno made us feel very welcome and could not do enough to ensure that we had a great holiday. Thankyou both and can’t wait to see you again next year!
