Why Per Halvorsen chose Mijas area

I was in Calahonda first time in 1992 playing golf for the first time. I really enjoyed the area and have revisited Costa del Sol yearly since then both as a golfer but also for relaxing/holiday with family.

When the opportunity came to buy my own property in Spain I was looking at 75 objects.I was living @ Mi Capricho during one of these stays and found out it had all I was looking for. I brought my wife and kids down here and they loved it too. So for us, this is the best family resort ever visited.

What makes this apartment unique

Fantastic outdoor space with stunning 360* views. Close to sea, great facilities for kids, well kept area, friendly staff, walking distance to all, nice restaurants,shopping, adapted for disabled, garage, elevator, quiet, modern and bright apartment.

Stunning beach front penthouse in Calahonda near Marbella. Mi Capricho
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews


  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the month of September and could not have been more pleased. The pictures are a true representation of the home and property. The owner is very easy to deal with and very polite.

Nice restaurants right next to the property . Stunning is a proper description.

Highly recommended.

A truly 5 star apartment in a 5 star complex

  • 5 of 5

Impressively furnished, comfortable, well appointed and spotlessly clean - truly a 5 star apartment. The weather during our stay reached 36 degrees but the canopy allowed us shade and with a refreshing breeze the temperatures were manageable. The air conditioning units were 1st class and the wonderful pools also helped to cool us. The view from the terrace is a feast to the eye and over a glass of wine we often passed time watching life on the sea. To watch the sun rise and set is a sight to behold.

Mi Capricho is in an excellent location with all amenities close by. We dined out a number of times but our favourites were the Argentinian Steakhouse in the El Zoco centre in Calahonda and Albert's in Cabopino. Bus stop are close by should one wish to visit Marbella or in the other direction Fuengirola. We felt safe and secure at all times in this beautifully maintained complex.

Thank you Per for our perfect stay in your apartment and we look forward to our return in 2017.

We must also mention your agent Sol Finders who were extremely helpful anytime we needed to speak with them.

Penthouse Pleasures

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a month in this lovely, well appointed clean and secure apartment. Views from the balcony are stunning with vistas to Africa and Gibraltar on a good day. Everything you need is at hand: supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants and services such as hair salons. For days when you want to explore further - perhaps Malaga or Marbella, the bus stop is almost in front of the property and runs quite regularly. Also, the train is accessible by bus to Fuengirola. There is a beach boardwalk right out front of the property with a wonderful walk to either Mijas or the port of Cabopino.

The 2 bedrooms and baths, along with the fully supplied kitchen are great for 2- 4 people and an extra bed available as well. It was a pleasure communicating with the owner who was not only quick to respond to every need but most interested in assuring that the time spent there was the best it could be.

If you have a car, the parking is very convenient within the building and offers security. The restaurant on the property is very good as are some of the restaurants in nearby Dona Lola.

I recommend this to anyone seeking a soothing respite in the sun along the Costa del Sol.

Stunning and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Second consecutive year in Pers apartment but this time 8 weeks and next year a little longer.

Being retired we travel between two homes and Pers apartment has become a Winter extension. So often you return somewhere and the standards have dropped ---NOT Pers. His standards are very much 5 stars. The sight is so secure and friendly. A few new restaurants opened since last year but it was so lovely to visit the regular restaurants of last year and be made so very welcome like long lost friends. The beach at the bottom of the gardens is just wonderful for walking. We walked no less than 4 miles each day both on the beach and up and over the various roads. I'm a little stuck for more information as you will see I wrote a review last year. Our only advice---- don't hesitate to stay at this apartment and book early to avoid disappointment.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in November with perfect weather conditions. Each morning breakfast on the spacious terrace in the shadow. If it is to warm, you can go on the roof to get some wind. Perfect view to the sea. You can see Africa and Gibraltar if the conditions are good.

Well equipped, modern apartment with flat screen, DVD and air condition in living and sleeping room. Perfect for 4 people. 2 Sleeping rooms and two bathrooms.

Lift goes from the spacious and secured garage direct to the apartment.

5 minutes to walk until the big Super market. Marbella and Porto Banus not far away. Bus stop within three minutes to go.

Full 10 points for this location.

Only the highway in front of apartment complex is a little bit noisy. But on the terrace on the sea side you only hear the sea.

Calahonda is a favourite holiday destination as it is ideally situated right by the sea between Fuengirola and Marbella (both about 10 minutes drive away), and only 25 minutes drive from Malaga Airport. There's an an excellent bus service along the coast, with buses running every 25 minutes to Fuengirola and Marbella, stopping off at lots of beaches, villages, and attractions on the way. If you wish to travel further afield in the Malaga direction, a train will whisk you along the coast from Fuengirola via such tourist hotspots as Benalmadena and Torremolinos. Calahonda has a wide variety of shops, banks, bars, restaurants and cafes. It has it's own medical centre, a picturesque marina, and two golf courses. The lovely white village of Mijas is about 20 minutes drive up the foot-hills. Puerto Banus Marina is about 15 minutes drive. Gibraltar is about a 70 minute drive away, Ronda 50 minutes and the magnificent Selwo Adventure Park at Estepona is in the same direction, 25 minutes.
