Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Mijas area - Oasis Cala de Mijas

3 bedroom, 2 bath, Private Hot Tub, FREE WiFi, Bikes, PlayStation 4, Pools & GPS

You’ll feel at home the second you walk into our Coral Reef Holiday Rental Apartment. That’s because we've gone all out to make Coral Reef just that—more of a home than a holiday rental apartment.

As you can see, the apartment has a plush, modern Mediterranean style. The open floor plan, private hot tub, and partial ocean-view terraces create an airy, relaxed feel that’s perfect for kicking back after exploring La Cala de Mijas and the rest of the Costa del Sol. When you’re ready to venture out, you’ll find 28,000 square meters of tropical gardens and two expansive saltwater pools in the complex. It’s quite possible to spend the entire day with the pool or the gardens to yourself.

'Coral Reef' Holiday Rental Apartment is stocked with many amenities that other apartments lack. Look in the kitchen cupboards and you’ll find everything you need to cook a mouthwatering dinner (we even have a juicer and a bread maker). We also offer two complimentary bicycles, so you can be at one of the nearby beaches, restaurants, or markets in a matter of minutes. For families with young children, we have plenty of equipment to make your stay easier, including a stroller, a baby monitor, and extra bottles.

'Coral Reef' self catering holiday rental apartment has three bedrooms: one master suite with a queen-size bed (double), one guest room with two queen-size bunk beds, and a daybed on the terrace that sleeps two. The terrace converts into a fully-enclosed room with air conditioning, blackout curtains, and a foldaway glass covering. The master bathroom includes a double sink, a bathtub, and a shower. The shared bathroom has a mosaic tile shower and Italian marble countertops and walls.

For more information and to reserve Coral Reef for your holiday, check our website at www.spanishvacationrental.com. La Cala de Mijas is a growing destination spot, so be sure to book before it’s too late!

About Sophie Idh

My name is Sophie and I was born and raised outside of Stockholm, Sweden. I love riding horses, traveling, and exploring. My Norwegian husband and I currently reside in Washington, US, and fly back home to Europe at least a couple of times per year.

Sophie Idh purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Sophie Idh chose Mijas area

When we were looking for a home to purchase in Costa del Sol, we searched all the cities, up and down the coast. When we found La Cala de Mijas it was no longer a question of what town to buy in, but what apartment complex to call our home. We quickly found Oasis Cala de Mijas, which is a high quality, low quantity complex, built with care and consideration. Only 30% of the property is built upon, leaving 28,000 square meters of well kept sub-tropical gardens, including 2 saltwater pools.

Our two apartments are located on the 2nd and 3rd floor, both accessible via an elevator. The entire complex is handicap accessible, and ideal for families traveling with children. You do not need a car while staying here, as you can walk from the apartment to just about everything, including the beach, bars, golf, restaurants, retails stores and more.

What makes this apartment unique

We love the architecture in our complex, with traditional Spanish style, combined with a modern look. Italian marble is all around, and the layout flows seamlessly from one room to another. We have included all the features that you would expect to find in your neighbor's home, so it is not just another holiday rental. Some of these features include:

- Private Jacuzzi

- Fully stocked kitchen applieances

- PlayStation 4

- Board games

- Beach and pool toys

- WiFi (ADSL Wired and Wireless Internet, for FREE)

- Secure, underground parking space

We hope to have you as a guest in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your questions.

Lovely property, very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed there for an early April week, and we were well pleased. I think this is the nicest property we've ever stayed in for that price. It's new, clean, well maintained, owned by Scandinavians who obviously take pride in what they offer to their guests, and the description matches the reality. If you want to cook there's every utensil, and the WiFi is a through proper ADSL connection.

It works best as a two-bedroom apartment, as it says in the description the third bedroom is a glassed-in veranda with curtains, but our son enjoyed sleeping there much better than sharing a bedroom with his sister.

The location is great, Cala de Mijas is lively, the beach is awesome, and the 15-minute walk to it is not a problem. Shopping is easy since there's a well-stocked Lidl just 3 mins walk away.

We enjoyed the stay very much, and would not hesitate to book it up again.

We first visited Sandy Beach Apartments for a weekend break last year. It was so good that this year we decided to stay for a week this time round. One of the reasons we returned was because this apartment is everything you could want. The location is 10 / 15 mins walk from theWe first visited Sandy Bay Apartments for a weekend break this time last year. It was so good that this year we decided to stay for a week this time round. One of the reasons we returned was because this apartment is everything you could want. The location is 10 / 15 mins walk from the beach a bit more if you are less able. Lidl' at the bottom of the road is a godsend. There are a few bars at the bottom of the road that do save you going into town. Right back to the apartment, the underground secure car park has a lift that goes up to the second floor so no carrying cases up stairs. From the minute you walk through the door it feels like home from home. From the well equipped kitchen to the extra large balcony, everything is perfect. The welcome that we received from Sally was first class and she couldn't do enough to ensured we enjoyed our stay. The bubbling hot tub ensures that you relax fully. The pool is cleaned daily and is a welcome relief from the Spanish sun. The pool side is spotless. We don't normally return to the same location as we prefer to visit new places BUT the Sandy Apartments are so good that we will return year after year. Thank you so much Sophie, Einar and Sally.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming back to stay with us for a second time. Let us home there will be a third and forth as well. There are so many places to see and explore in the Costa del Sol region that I know you will have a different experience each and every time. Thanks!

Cala de Mijas
Car: not necessary

There are so many facilities in the local area that you will never run out of things to do, with or without a car. La Cala de Mijas still has that small town charm and feel, yet the sophistication and amenities of a modern city. Every Wednesday and Saturday you can walk to the local market, where you can purchase anything from fresh produce, to clothing, jewelry, and everything in between. There are Irish Bars, English Bars and Spanish Bars, all within a few blocks of each other. You will find restaurants and retail stores up and down the narrow, cobble stone streets. A 10 minute walk will take you to an amazing beach, with miles of the Costa del Sol’s finest sand. A pirate ship playground is located along the beach walk promenade, and it is a big hit with the kids, when they need a break from the ocean. Two modern grocery stores are within easy walking distance of home. Take either public transportation or a car for a 10 minute drive to the enormous local shopping mall, Parque Miramar

Golf: The apartment is situated in the Golf Valley, with 9 excellent courses, including The famous La Cala Golf, Mijas Golf, Mira Flores Golf, La Siesta Golf, La Noria Golf, Santana Golf, Calanova Golf, and El Chapatral Club de Golf.

Notes:
The holiday rental apartment is located on the 2st floor, above the garden apartment, and 1st floor, or what is referred to as the 3nd floor in Northern Europe and the US. The 73 square meter balcony/terrace has a large section enclosed with a glass wall, that can easily be slid to one side, to open the entire area up to the sun. For the winter evenings, the glass can be put in place, and the terrace be fully enjoyed, with Infra Red heaters, if necessary. The private jacuzzi is located on the terrace, out of view from the rest of the units, for a more private experience. This holiday rental apartment is located in a gated community, surrounded by 28,000 square meters of subtropical gardens, with swimming pool areas and lighted walkways for your enchanting evening strolls. While the beach, shops, restaurants and bars are just a short 5 to 10 minute walk away, you will still enjoy a tranquil and quiet apartment, with absolutely no street noise.
