We stayed here from the first two weeks in August and would say it is a superb family accommodation in a superb location. Jill is a great support and there if you need anything. She also has a great breadth of knowledge of the area, where to go and things to do. The villa is perfectly equipped with everything a family could need including washing machines and great WIFI. You open the rear doors to a small covered patio area to find an excellent communal swimming pool with a shallow end for children and a deeper end for grown ups. By the end of the fortnight our two year old Grand Daughter was confident enough to venture into the deeper end. This is a great area to enjoy a bottle of wine in the evenings but don’t forget the insect repellent.
The area has some good restaurants and bars within walking distance. Pizza Taxi has some really good handmade salads and pizzas, the Irish bar is great for a late pint on the way back and Mini India does a really good curry. There is a good Aldi supermarket is about 5 minutes walking away, but the Carrefour supermarket in Estepona is even better and only a 10-15 minute drive away.
I would strongly recommend hiring a car to get out and about. Marbella, Puerto Banus, San Pedro & Estepona are all short drives away and have great restaurants and bars. Gibraltar is about a 50 minute drive away and worth a visit.
All in all i couldn't fault it and have to say a great two weeks that went far too quickly. I am sure we will be back.
We had a wonderful week's stay here in June. Jill, the apartment host, welcomed us on our arrival, by giving us thorough instructions on how to find where we were staying. She stocked our fridge with milk, breads, juice and cereal so that we wouldn't go hungry on our first morning. Once at the apartment we quickly settled in. This was made very easy, by the on site facilities such as the communal pool, (situated right outside the back patio door), outdoor BBQ, TV, WIFI, air conditioning, plenty of fresh towels and linen. There are nearby shops and restaurants and the beach within 10 mins walk!
We used the very large pool, several times a day every day. It's perfectly designed for adults and children with a decent sized area for swimming and also a large shallow area for the kids to splash and have fun in.
Our 4 year old son, who had a fear of even getting his head wet at the beginning of the week was swimming, unaided by the end of the week! This was in large part to the excellent design of the pool.
Couldn't ask for more. Great value and a perfect family holiday.
Thank you Lisa. Already planning our return!
V close to the Moter way, easy to get around and explore, close to shopping etc., sleeping 8 instead of 10 would be wiser as a bit cramped using the pull out bed on the sitting room to fit all ten, We really enjoyed our stay, thank you
Loved our family holiday here. Ideal for people wanting to be slightly out of lively Marbella. Aldi down the road for all food shopping. Taxi roughly 10-12 euro into town. Local hotels allow you to use their facilities (one has an on site water park which you pay for but includes food and alcoholic drinks all day).
The pool outside the house was ideal for kids, shallow one side of the bridge and deeper the other end. Loungers, chairs and inflatables available with the house. Keep your eyes peeled for the miserable next door neighbour!! We mainly ignored him but he likes to tell people where they can and can't put their loungers. House was all very well kept and had lots of towels, washing machine and beds were comfy. Would definitely come back. First time booking through trip advisor but would do it again no problem! Tip would be to pre book transfers though Jill or Shirley.
