“A lovely apartment in an ideal location.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A well equipped apartment in an ideal location- only 10 minutes walk to the beach and the local bars and shops. Only 15 minutes walk to La Duquesa and no hills to climb! The apartment was well equipped and attractively decorated. Lovely pool area with clean toilet facilities. My only criticism was the lack of sunbeds around for the pool and I ended up buying a cheap deckchair which I left at the apartment. Otherwise, no complaints.

Thank You for your excellent review.
As the pool area is a communal area, as a resident owner we are not allowed to leave deckchairs or sunbeds in the pool area.
This is something that the community are looking at, and we have been told that there will be furniture provided for the next season.

“Fabulous apartment, fabulous location”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We visited this property as a Family of four in August 2013 and honestly can't fault a single thing.

The apartment is spacious, very well appointed and in a great location with a large supermarket, pizzeria and several bars within a couple of minutes walk. About 10 minutes walk away is the town centre of Sabinillas and beach with lots of bars and restaurants.

The gated complex itself is extremely well maintained and has 4 swimming pools, paddle courts and free WiFi in the communal areas. You can pick up the signal in the apartment but its quite feint.

The two bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space and the two bathrooms (one ensuite) both have showers so its easy for a family to get ready in an evening.

The kitchen is well equipped with oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, toaster and microwave. We didn't use the microwave so moved it into the utility room on top of the washing machine to create more work space. There's also an iron and ironing board in the utility.

The living space is exceptional with a great dining table, large L-shaped sofa, TV with good range of English channels, Blu-Ray player and a superb balcony with another large dining table.

Duquesa port is a couple of minutes drive away and a great place to dine in the evening with just about every type of cuisine catered for. Bahia Park is only 30 minutes up the road towards Gibraltar and is a great Waterpark at a very reasonable cost for a Family ticket. The lovely town of Estapona is only 10 minutes in the other direction with a good selection of shops and restaurants plus beach. Well worth a visit.

I cannot recommend both the accommodation and area enough. Its a wonderfully friendly place with many English run businesses mixed amongst the traditional Spanish. If I had one piece of advice to the agents it would be to provide better instructions for entering the property for the first time as finding the correct lift was impossible and only resolved with the assistance of some other residents. Having said that, the agent was extremely helpful and answered emails promptly with additional information such as where to take your rubbish.

All in all, an utterly brilliant holiday and we can't wait to go back.

Thank you for the wonderful review. As this is the first year of rental, we are looking to improve on your point about access and have provided an access map for the Agent to hand out. We will also be providing a folder and review book in the apartment to help future travellers decide what to do, and where to go|
