About C Kilburn
We are a couple who love the company of other people. We are on hand any time to help and advise you on where to go and what to see. We enjoy hosting roof top BBQs and mixing with our guests,but if you prefer privacy we will not impose. We generally find most guests love to have a little company some evenings and a chat over a glass of wine. For our guests without a car if we are going out for the day we like to invite them to join us, maybe just a run up to the garden center in the mountains or a trip into Fuengirola. With a little bit of notice Phil is happy to drop you off at local markets and villages. For any single ladies who would like a holiday with company I also enjoy having someone to accompany me on days out. Whatever your preference your holiday is important to us and we want you to have a lovely time while visiting us. Happy holiday!
C Kilburn purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why C Kilburn chose Mijas
We chose this area for it´s peace and quiet but being not too far from a little night life. Fuengirola and La Calla are 5 mins away. The local beach is a short stroll away and has its own little chiringuito where we love to go for an evening drink. We chose this particular villa for its stunning views. We are on the highest point and not one person has gone on to our roof top terrace without saying WOW.

Comfortable, clean with excellent view
Lovely hosts, friendly but not intrusive. We've never been in an apartment before that has been so spotless.
We don't like driving in Spain but were fine in this apartment to get about on the local bus which can be picked up down the road - only about a ten minute walk and we're not youngsters!
Hope to visit again next year.
Thank you Ray for your very kind words. So pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.
We make every effort to ensure the apartment is clean and comfortable for our guests. Any suggestions for improvement are always welcome.
Was a pleasure having you visit us and do hope to see you both again.
It was very pleasant and good value for money a little basic for us but the hosts were lovely 😊
Lovely apartment, good location with sea views.
Chris and Phil are a really lovely couple.
They gave us a warm and friendly welcome and were very keen to share their local knowledge.
The Studio Apartment did not disappoint. A welcome pack is provided in the well equipped kitchen. There are also many beach items for use including towels, mats, parasol and chairs.
There is an attractive private terrace which has lovely sea views. This is a great sun trap, but also has areas of shade and an awning.
We had a very relaxing, enjoyable stay and hope to return.
We would certainly recommend this accommodation to other people.
Hi Gordon and Jo.
Thank you so much for your lovely review.
So glad you enjoyed your break with us.
Nice to hear when our guests love the peace and quiet and enjoy the views from our terrace.
It was a pleasure meeting you both. Do hope to see you again sometime in the future.
Many thanks. Chrissy.
Just back from five nights staying in El Faro and I have to echo what the other reviews say. Phil and Chrissy were such lovely hosts, they made us feel so welcome, going above and beyond what you would expect. We were picked up from the airport by Phil and taken shopping to get supplies. We were then offered a choice of apartments (studio or apartment), both were lovely. Clean, fresh with every possible thing you may need. The views from both are stunning, offering panoramic sea views. It is so quiet and peaceful, no cars/roads in view, with just birdsong to keep you company. Chrissy and Phil were on hand for travel advice and offering to take you or pick you up(how kind!).We went to La Cala and Fuengirola, which were both lovely. Phil took us to both and showed us around. We went to the market in La Cala, then had lunch on the seafront. We had an excellent meal at El Patio (Chrissy's recommendation), a couple of minutes walk from the studio. There are also bars/restaurants and a shop a few minutes away. La Cala and Fuengirola are just five minutes away. I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here (we already have told family and friends!), as you will not meet nicer people than Chrissy and Phil. You feel completely safe staying here! I read the reviews before booking and they are all accurate. We really did not want to leave! Thank you so much to Chrissy and Phil and Mitzy/Cat ;-) xx
Thank you for your very kind and lovely review and comments. We do strive to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Our guests are so important to us and we hope they leave with lovely memories of a happy stay in our accommodation. We welcome any comments and suggestions to help us continue or improve our service to future guests.
Great apartment and great hosts!
I thoroughly enjoyed my 5 day break in Mijas Costa. Chrissy and Phil were fabulous hosts; they made me feel so welcome and ensured I had everything I needed. I was traveling on my own and really enjoyed their company – we had a good chat and a few drinks :-)
The studio apartment is a great size, well furnished, spotlessly clean and has everything you need. It was so peaceful with fantastic views. The patio was really spacious and ideal for sunbathing and lazing the day away – having the plunge pool was an extra bonus when it got too hot. Great location with easy access to local amenities and the beach. The welcome pack on arrival was great, added touches like that are thoughtful and very much appreciated.
Would definitely recommend staying at Chrissy and Phil’s to family and friends and will hopefully be back some time in the future :-)
Hola Fiona, thank you so much for your lovely review. We really are lucky to have such nice people coming to stay with us. We do enjoy meeting so many different people from all over the world. I thoroughly enjoyed our little trip to La Cala and a good chat.
Hope all is going well with you, keep me updated! Chrissy.
Stayed at this apartment twice now and wouldn't go anywhere else! Chrissy and phil are two of the nicest people you could wish to meet, fantastic hosts and can't do enough to make you welcome. Beautiful views, ideal location and plenty of choice for local bars and restaurants. What more could you want? Thank you chrissy and phil, be back soon!
Hola Brian thank you for your lovely, kind words. Great having you both here again. We do count ourselves lucky when we have such lovely guests returning. We have been very busy here and very HOT! Look forward to your next visit, has to be a drink or two on the terrace. Take good care. Chrissy and Phil.
