About Faith and Phillip Putman
My husband is from England and I was born in the U.S. We fell in love with Spain after we walked the Camino de Santiago in the summer of 2013. We decided to buy a holiday/retirement home and chose the El Presidente Urbanizacion in the Costa del Sol area because of the beauty of the beaches and mountains along with it's fabulous micro-climate. Both of us like the beach and we both love to hike. We are hoping to retire in the next 5 or 6 years but in the meantime we would like to share our beautiful apartment with those who enjoy the beach and mountains and we hope you will enjoy our fabulous apartment.
Faith and Phillip Putman purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Faith and Phillip Putman chose Estepona
We choose this property because of the beachside spanish style apartments in a tropical garden setting. We also noticed that the El Presidente urbanizacion was one of the few complexes with numerous pools set in a quiet area surrounded by protected pine trees.
What makes this Apartment unique
The El Presidente urbanizacion located on the New Golden Mile next to the Marriott Andalusia Resort. We found that the area is centrally located to more of Spain's southern coastal attractions, family friendly and considerably less busy then the Malaga area. Yet close enough to Marbella, Puerto Banus and Estepona to find the vacation night life. It was easy to find and travel down the coast from either Malaga or Gibraltar's airport.

Our second year here in the apartment and we love it. It has everything that you need for a comfortable stay, loved the new shower and sound bar Faith
Loved, loved our stay at this apartment in Estepona!! Everything was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed, furniture is new and comfortable, and wonderful amenities. Our favorite spot was drinking coffee on the balcony in the morning with all the birds chirping. The location is perfect! We could easily drive to Malaga, Ronda and Tariffa. Estepona is gorgeous and people are wonderful. Easy to catch a cab into the heart of Estepona for a fabulous dinner. The beach is super close and easy to get to. Also has a grocery store very close by to grab anything we needed. Would stay here again!! We hope to come back soon!
Thank you so much for the great review and we would love to have you come back.
Loved this apartment! We can't wait to return.
This apartment has everything you need. The community is beautiful and it is located on the coast between Marbella and Estepona. The community has 5 beautiful pools available for you to choose. The gardens are wonderful and there is plenty of things to do in the nearby area. We can't wait to return for another relaxing holiday.
Wonderful apartment and complex
10 out of 10 we had a great relaxing holiday in Faith’s wonderful apartment
Perfect a delight
Beautiful penthouse apartment over looking one of the many pools. The complex is in delightful gardens which are mature and old school Spain. It was a little oasis but near enough to shops and main connections to Marbella, Estepona and further afield. It was well equipped and had all the things we needed. We will certainly return
Thank you for the wonderful review! We would love to have you come back.
Bright, spacious apartment overlooking pool and set within quiet, well maintained grounds.
The El Presidente urbanisation itself feels like a small safe community opposed to a holiday complex. The grounds are beautifully maintained, pool areas are clean with shower and bathroom facilities and the apartments themselves all look cared for and well loved.
This penthouse apartment has everything you need to have a relaxing holiday. The kitchen is well equip should you wish to cook and eat there, with an Aldi supermarket a short walk away. Open plan living/dining with a large table to eat at both inside and on the terrace. Bedrooms have plenty of space and storage and the beds are very comfortable. Both bedroom have french shuttered doors with fly screen options and small terrace spaces too, master bed has a ceiling fan which we were very grateful for given the unusually high June temperatures. Decent wifi, a smart tv and plenty of channels to suit the fussiest of teenagers too.
There are a few cafes and restaurants within walking distance should you want to give the car a break and have a beer. We would recommend L'Oriental (Lebanese) or Mini India. L'Oriental is just around the corner, Mini India a little further, can be reached by walking over the bridge at the side of Aldi but worth the extra few minutes walk.
The apartment is around 10 mins drive outside Estepona town and main beach. It is also close to Puerto Banus for those with designer taste.
The only negative for us was the local beach. It was nice for a walk but is shingle at the waters edge, making access to the sea tricky on bare feet. There are much prettier beaches with better facilities with less/no shingles up and down the coast as well as the large main Estepona beach. (For young families try Cristo beach, a small cove on the other side of Estepona Marina.)
Our family had a relaxing holiday and would definitely reccommend this apartment for a comfortable home from home stay. The Torrances (June 2017)
This area is ideal for golfers, hikers, beach activities and numerous site seeing adventures. There are five beautiful pools on property along with tennis courts, basketball courts, children's soccer field and playground. The gardens on property are resort style manicured.
