Penthouse Terrace- The 'Pièce de Résistance!'
The terrace area is very much commented upon by guests and is a super feature of this apartment!
The very large 'wrap around' terrace, one of the very few well placed for unrivalled views on this complex, continues to delight our guests and with its' south facing aspect it enjoys sun all day from sunrise to sunset and it affords a beautiful panoramic sea view across to the coast of Africa!!
It is equipped with sun beds and drinks table, a large dining table with 6 chairs and a large parasol, coffee table with 2 chairs and a built in BBQ for wonderful 'al fresco' dining!
To finish off your day, there is a lovely comfy terrace suite where you can sit and relax with a long cold drink in the early evening (and later!) as you watch the sun set over the Mediterranean, the coast of Africa and the Atlas mountains!
Calahonda Information: Calahonda is a busy resort with a rustic flavour and is very much centred on the holidaymaker, with four golf courses, tennis courts, and a shimmering coastline offering an array of water sports, shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants that have a truly global take on cuisine and cannot fail to suit all tastes!
Calahonda has its own marina called Cabopino (5 minutes away,) which has the reputation for being the most secluded and picturesque marina on the Costa del Sol. It has a superb sandy beach with bars and restaurants that have barbecue areas where freshly caught fish are cooked as a speciality. The marina is host to many lovely and well known reputable restaurants,
Eating Out around Calahonda: Within a few minutes walk of the apartment you will find an ATM and some bar/restaurants all of which we can highly recommend. Walking a little further on (3 minute drive) will bring you to the ‘Strip’ well known in Calahonda for its wide choice of restaurants, which cater for literally all tastes, including Swiss! Around the corner from the Strip is the El Zoco Centre where you will find a further choice of wonderful restaurants set in a lovely pedestrianised area. In addition you will find gift shops, banks, newsagents, pharmacy etc and one of 3 large supermarkets, which will cater for all your needs. Opposite the El Zoco, just across the coastal road, there is the Dona Lola Complex where yet again you will find a further choice of good bars and restaurants to choose from.
"Your apartment is absolutely gorgeous and the terrace and view magnificent, a great feature. We will recommend it to all our family and friends."
We (family of four) spent two weeks at this penthouse in July 2014 and had a great holiday. Sharon and Darren, thank you for letting us use your penthouse. As other guests have commented the terrace is great, very large with sun all day. Inside the accommodation is spacious and furnished to a very high quality. There is pretty much everything you could want or need for your stay. Having rented many apartments and villas over the last few years, this is without doubt the best that we have stayed in! There are four pools on the complex and they are surprisingly quiet. We stayed during the school holidays and often there were only a handful of families around the pool so his was great and very relaxing ... No fighting for sunbeds! The penthouse is within walking distance of a couple of very nice restaurants, in particular El Gaucho. Having stayed near Calahonda several times, we didn't realise how many good quality restaurants there are in the resort. Devines was very good, very child friendly with reasonable prices.
Finally, the booking process from first enquiry to stay was a breeze! Sharon was extremely helpful with any questions we had. All in all a great place to stay and we are returning in 2015!
We spent the most amazing 2 weeks at this fabulous penthouse apartment. Sharon was the best person we have ever dealt with. She was helpful and so efficient from start to finish. The apartment was so spacious, well equipped and comfortable. We didn't close the curtains and slept looking at starry clear nights. The views were spectacular and could see Gibraltar some days. We visited Cabopino beach, which was lovely and lively. We went to Rhonda- hour and a half but breathtaking. Mijas Pueblo was a gorgeous Spanish village about 20 mins away. Marbella and Benalmadena marina also worth a visit. Our final trip was Nerja, long drive but beautiful place and stunning caves. We ate at steak house on the edge of El Zoco..very nice! We liked Supersol supermarket on the El Zoco centre the best, quite reasonable.
Overall we loved our holiday , best one yet!!! Thanks to Sharon and Darren for sharing your beautiful place..
Stayed in La Vista with family for two weeks in the end of August. The apartment is really nice and was perfect for us (3 adults and 2 kids). The area is in general really nice with some nice pools and clean surroundings.
I would say that a car is a must in this location, even though you can walk to the closest restaurants for example, you wont be walking to the grocery store, it´s basically a steep uphill road all the way from everywhere to the apartment, especially if you are staying with little kids. But having a car makes everything much easier, and the parking space is well located just a couple of steps from the elevator which then again goes right up front to the apartment door, so having a car makes everything much easier.
The apartment is nice with three bedrooms and a small kitchen, nice living room and a really great terrace. If you got really small kids the terrace might become a concern, but ones the kids are at sleep its great for the adults to sit and relax at the terrace. Since the terrace is so big you can easily hang clothes and towels to dry and they wont be in the way for using the terrace for relaxing at the same time. Only downside of having the sun shining to the terrace all day is that the floor gets so hot you can´t walk on it without slippers :)
Calahonda is a nice little town, but if you want to go to the beach we would recommend the Mijas beach rather than Calahondas own beach abt. 10 min. drive from the apartment, same goes for nightlife, most of the restaurants in Calahonda close quite "early" if you want to have a night out so you´ll be better of by taking a taxi to Mijas or Puerto Banus for example. But since Calahonda is pretty close to both you have many options for night life..
For places to visit in the nearby area I would recommend Mijas village up on the hills (abt. 20min drive from the apartment) really nice little village with donkey and horse rides, nice restaurants and cafes, souvenir shopping etc. Also the Biopark Zoo in Fuengirola is really nice, the Aquarium in Benalmadena on the other hand is a waste of time and money, not recommended, but the Cable Car ride up to Mount Calamorro in Benalmadena is great and a lot of fun ! Remeber to check the timetable for falcon shows etc. before going up though !
All and all a great vacation, and the La Vista apartment was really nice and perfect for our needs. I would recommend the place for anyone who doesn´t need hotel services.
We had a fantastic holiday staying in this wonderful apartment. The views from the spacious balcony were amazing. The accommodation is furnished to a very high standard and included everything you could need for a very enjoyable holiday. We spent many an evening out on the terrace relaxing with a nice cool drink.
The pool was never crowded even though we stayed in August. We recommend car hire which enables you to visit all the wonderful locations the Costa del Sol has to offer.
Sharon and Darren are extremely helpful and a pleasure to speak to. All in all we highly recommend staying at this wonderful penthouse apartment.
We realy enjoyed our stay in this marvelous Penthouse.
Especially the view and the huge terras did make our stay unforgetable.
I would recommend this penthouse to anybody who wants to stay in this area!
My wife and I stayed here with her elderly Mother who has some mobility problems.
I knew as soon as we contacted Sharon,who rented us their property, we were going to be well looked after and would have a wonderful stay,
She gave us all the information and guidance we needed through a series of emails.
We were met by the very welcoming and friendly Monica who looks after the apartment and she took us directly there.
The Apartment itself is well maintained with all the facilities you would need and fabulous views from a terrace which gets the sun ALL day.
It has three good sized bedrooms and a very large lounge/sitting room.
It also has an elevator with direct access.
There are several pools ( four I think) which you have access to.
It is in a nice quiet area, though you definitely need a car. (Underground parking space)
All in all I can't praise Sharon & Monica enough for their assistance before AND after our holiday and I would highly recommend them to everyone.
