“Great vacation”

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 such as cleaning, laundry etc. done for them, if you like to handle everything yourselves on a holiday, then this is truly a great place to stay in this area. :)

Hi Mika & family - Thank you for your review and your tips to readers are much appreciated! You are correct that Calahonda is more of a family resort with the focus being on family friendly restaurants and small bars as opposed to the busy resorts of Marbella, Banus, Fuengirola etc where bars and nightclubs can be open all night long! but for those seeking such entertainment, luckily Calahonda is only a very short distance away, so yes a great choice of night life available! We have always and continue to advice car hire to guests, not just to make the very most of their stay on the Costa del Sol with so many lovely places to visit, for those days to the beach with so much 'paraphernalia' to carry! and as you have pointed out, for the sheer convenience and ease of self catering purposes which a holiday in our apartment is all about! As with all previous guests I know you enjoyed the terrace space both day and night time and as parents with very young children, you were quite right to correctly supervise your children whilst out on the terrace just as you would on any balcony/terrace area! Your comment about how hot the terrace floor gets made me smile but reinforces that when we say it gets sun all day, we mean sun all day :-). I have really enjoyed all our communication together both pre and post your stay and we would be delighted to see you return again in the future! Best wishes and kind regards Sharon & Darren

Hi Karen & family - Thank you for submitting a review for us but mostly for the potential guests considering our apartment and who are reading these reviews, as comments, tips and advice from guests who have actually stayed with us, are very important in their final decision making! We did have e-mail communication between ourselves early on during your stay and you commented immediately on much you were "absolutely loving the apartment" and the review you have submitted, reconfirms this! As always, the terrace never fails to please and yes the pools don't get overcrowded even in August! It was a pleasure speaking with you on your return and the personal feedback you gave me and we look forward to seeing you return again in the future! Best wishes & kind regards, Sharon & Darren

Hi John & Irene - Thank you for your lovely review of our apartment! Having done private rentals ourselves, we understand the importance of having good communication with the owner and always do our best to be on hand with help, assistance and information to help take away 'pre-holiday worries' we are always there during and after your stay as you now know!! Yes you are correct, there are 4 pools plus 2 small children's' pools and your review does help reassure other people that our apartment is more than suitable for guests with mobility difficulties and we have comfortably accommodated previous guests who have required the use of wheelchairs. Thank you for enjoying and commenting on our large terrace area and view - always a 'hit'! It was a pleasure to have accommodated you all and we look forward to see you return! - Kind regards Sharon & Darren

Thanking you for your review of our apartment, which we hope as always, will be useful to other viewers and potential future guests! From our conversations before your departure, we knew that your family were keen walkers and our guest information book outlines a particular walk from our complex up to the 'old fire watch tower' which from this point, gives a far reaching and fantastic view of most of this coast to include the village of Mijas and Gibralter!. Yes, the most local recommended restaurants to the complex to walk to are very good then, as you say, to reach many more good restaurants in the heart of the resort, it is either just a 3 min drive (if you don't want to walk down) or a short, inexpensive taxi ride away. We do always recommend car hire to our guests for the sheer convenience of getting about under your own steam, self catering purposes and for all the 'beach gear' that guests carry! We were very happy to hear following your return, that when you holiday in this area again, you would be giving us a call, that is always the best compliment we can get! We look forward to see you return in the future. All the best for now. - Kind regards Sharon & Darren
