We recently had a 2 week family vacation and couldn't have asked for a better and more relaxing stay. The apartment was beautiful and there was everything we needed to enjoy our stay, includingvtoiletries, a well stocked kitchen and chilled water for our arrival. Both the owner Fiona and local Rep Maria were easily contactable and helpful. You do need a car if you want to get about but we normally hire a car for sightseeing anyway, and we were able to enjoy plenty of space, sun beds and relaxation by the pool which you wouldn't get in a more central location. However, as a base it's great for visiting most places in the area. Would highly recommend.
Great facilities. Very comfortable. Great views,
And we enjoyed our jogs around the neighbourhood, and our walks around the god course
Spent the last two weeks of June in this apartment, two adults and one teenager and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It took us about an hour from Malaga airport to get there and the directions were so good we found it first time (not the norm for us). It is set on the hillside in a quiet residential development about a ten minute drive from Estepona so a car is a must (underground secure car park kept your car cool).. The apartment is a good size and well equipped with everything you need for a great holiday. The gardens are well maintained and there are three pools, as it was quiet time we sometimes had the pool to ourselves but it was never over crowded.. The balcony is a really good size, with great views and has a barbecue so some nights we ate in. Love this area particularly Estepona, Marbella Old Quarter and Malaga. From start to finish this was a great holiday from the ease of corresponding with Fiona (the owner) before and after our stay, to Stacey meeting us when we arrived and showing us around.. Would definitely stay here again and have already recommended it to friends.

We received a warm greeting from English couple; Stacey and Mike. Firstly the apartment is lovely and well-maintained. It has an outdoor space (balcony) with is suitable for al fresco dining and barbecues. As part of a complex, there is also a great view and access to facilities including 3 swimming pools and gardens. The location is quiet and tranquil making it suitable for a variety of travellers - couples or families. It is remote so a car is a must. I would recommend a trip to Selwo safari park which is close by.
The things that could have been improved are the touches that make a stay that much more comfortable. It would have been handy to have basic amenities such as hand wash, washing powder, spare dishwasher tablets, additional loo roll etc. This is quite a lot to buy for a short trip meaning that we had to leave most of what we purchased behind.
We did not see a welcome guide and magazines that a previous reviewer had mentioned!
After arriving after 10pm with an 18 month old toddler, it would have been great to have basic supplies such as milk and bread. We had to drive around looking for food with an overtired child in an area that we were unfamiliar with. It would also have been nice if the cot was put up and ready for us too. Not major issues but just things that enhance overall hospitality.
We did enjoy our stay and would like to thank Fiona for the use of her apartment.
My partner and our 7 month baby stayed in this apartment for a week in June. The apartment had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. Travelling with a baby was a completely different holiday so we wanted that home from home feel which we defiantly got from this apartment.
We had BBQ's most evenings on the terrace which overlooked one of the pools so was very relaxing.
We walked down to the club house on a couple of evenings and the guy who worked there was very friendly and helpful, he also ordered is a taxi into town one evening.
We hired a car which was needed but we knew that before we booked. Estepona town and Puerto Banus was a short drive away.
We got engaged during our stay too so this trip will always be an extra special holiday and I would love to return.
Thank you Fiona for letting us rent your lovely apartment.
