Lovely Family Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a weeks stay at this apartment with my husband & 2 children and were VERY HAPPY with it.

Firstly let me start by saying the owner of this apartment was lovely. Karen answered all of my question and always reply's to emails quickly plus all of the info she provided is very accurate ie the directions to the property are spot on!

We arrived late (10.30pm) this did worry us a little just in case we had a problem, but the keys were waiting, plenty of parking, and were even provided with a bottle of water, a carton of milk, and sashays of coffee and sugar which was just what the doctor ordered!

We were aware that another family had left that same day-but you never would have known as the place was absolutely spotless. Both bathrooms and w.c had lovely fluffy towels, toilet roll and handwash. You may think all this would be expected as standard but believe me this is NOT always the case!

The apartment seems quite new and is fitted-out to a high standard, it also over looks the gardens and pool which very nice.

Unfortunately for us the weather was not as warn as it has been in previous years at this same time, it was also quite windy at which made it feel rather chilly. My husband and I spent our first day being nagged by our children to go in the pool and although we knew this wasn't the best I idea we took them down the next day needless to say they did last long and they didn't ask again!

Due to this there wasn't many people around, although; like us I did see other people try and brave it once or twice and all gave up rather quickly! lol But I got the impression that if the weather was better then this wouldn't be the case. Plus we'd see the men cleaning out the pool every morning and putting out loungers for the day.

The nights would get a little cold but all there was extra blankets (enough to cover all the beds)

The property agent in Spain was also very good, we had to call them due to a problem with a door. She was very honest and said that she would probably not be able to get someone out the same day, but about an hour later a maintenance man turned up a had it sorted in no time. Plus there is an out of office number which IS answered.

I'll end by saying although you don't need a car I would recommend it as it just makes getting around so much easier.

Fantastic apartment for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from two weeks in the apartment feeling renewed and refreshed. It was extremely spacious and it was wonderful for all seven of us to be able to eat together on the terrace. We could not fault the facilities, the pool was great and the sky subscription on the tv was an added bonus. The wifi was appreciated by the teenagers. A day trip to Gibraltar was definitely worth it, although I would 100% suggest hiring a car for the holiday. Would definitely recommend this to all friends and relatives!

Amazing weekend in this stunning apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 7 of my friends stayed in this apartment from Thursday 31st July -Monday 4th August and I could not rate the place higher. The apartment itself was much bigger than it looked in the pictures and was extremely clean. The whole is perfectly kept and the pools are of very high standard it is also in a perfect location only around 10 minutes taxi ride from Puerto Banus. Would recommend this to any of my friends and will definitely be returning for another holiday.

A peaceful haven!

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this apartment for a long weekend, part of a group of mums looking to escape to the sun! The apartment is spacious, clean and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The balcony is ideal for al fresco dining, overlooking one of the many pools and tropical gardens. Apartment is about a 5-10 min drive outside puerto banus, but within walking distance of a supermarket and row of shops/bars. The clubhouse on site is perfect for lunchtime and offers good value food, in a great setting. Karen the owner was extremely attentive and helpful in the run up to our holiday which is reassuring when staying somewhere new.

My husband and I have just spent a week in Paradise....!!! Sitting by the pool in the stunning gardens in such a tranquil setting, it certainly felt like Paradise..... The apartment was extremely stylish, comfortable and very clean. Our thanks to Karen for all her help in making our first holiday abroad in many years, such a wonderful relaxing break. It was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. We wish Karen every success for 2014!
