About Mark Perry
We live in West London & have 2 young children. We bought the property as much for them as us & intend to spend as much time as possible there enjoying the Sunshine! However given the restrictions of school holidays it does sees a shame to leave it empty for so much of the year & feel it makes sense to offer it out for rental. PS New OD service fee https://help.ownersdirect.co.uk/articles/What-is-the-service-fee-OD Please note this is only levied if you use the OD payment system, other methods are available eg bank transfer. Use "enquire now" not "request to book" to deal directly or please contact me and I will explain :)
Mark Perry purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Mark Perry chose Estepona
We loved the fact that the penthouse has such fabulous views across the countryside & across to Gibraltar. The location is fantastic being close to Marbella, Puerto Banus & Estepona, not forgetting the gastronomic village of Benahavis. We have several friends who own properties within a few miles of ours.
What makes this Apartment unique
It is in a great location close to all amenities yet quiet enough to be able to relax away from the stresses of the outside world. The views really are spectacular!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
A lovely break
The apartment was spacious and clean and the balcony was wonderful including the shade. As we weren't in school holidays the pool was pretty quiet although there weren't enough sun loungers by the pool at the weekend when it was busier. We enjoyed the location for visiting Estepona and Benahavis. All in all a perfect stay we will be back!
Week away with friends
This is the 4th time we have stayed at Mark's Apartment. Booking with Mark couldn't be easier and communication is great.
The Apartment is really a home from home, it's so comfortable and has everything you could need.
This time we visited with 2 other couples, The Balconies are a great place for a G&T and sit with friends until the early hours!
The pool and surrounding areas are great with plenty of sun beds.
The local Supermarket has everything and more and is within 5 minutes walk.
We made several visits to Benhavis (about 10 mins in a car or 12 Euros by Taxi) where the Restaurants are superb.
Hope to be back again soon!
spacious quality apartment with amazing views
This is a really good quality apartment equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable, relaxing holiday. The wrap around terraces give an amazing view of mountains and coast with Gibraltar on the horizon and gives all day sunshine. Lots of shaded areas too for when it got too hot. The garden grounds of the complex are a delight. The apartment is well placed, only 50 minutes from the airport and close to lots of lovely beaches and restaurants. Even the supermarket is within walking distance.
I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment and will be likely to book it again in the future.
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review, I’m so glad that you had an enjoyable holiday and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
Amazing Views From Superb Penthouse
Another superb weeks stay at this extremely private, secure and tasteful Penthouse
The views always amaze, and the general standard of decoration both On the wrap-round terrace and Internally remain In good repair...
Only negatives would be the sun loungers are now looking a little tired, and glass-ware
Is In need of replenishment....
Already looking forward to returning In August
Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We are always looking for improvements, for instance we recently bought a new BBQ and dining room chairs. We will see about replacing the sunloungers when we return in the summer but sadly the lovely Spanish weather does take it’s toll!
Very nice apartment with great views
Large and well kept apartment with great views all round over golf courses, to the sea and mountains. Louise was friendly and helpful with the meet and greet. We had a great time.
Thank you very much for taking the time for leaving a review, I so glad that you enjoyed your holiday.
We stayed at the penthouse for 7 nights during the Christmas holiday. There were 2 adults and 1 teenager (14). We had more space than we needed but it was still cozy. Our teenager would have loved to see other teenagers close to her age, but she enjoyed our day trips. The wrap around balcony was beautiful to look out from while the sun was up. The whole complex is very well maintained and secure. There were some minor repairs being done on the stairs and entryways. It was very quiet because of the time of year. We had a car but we took the city bus to Gibraltar, which we highly recommend. The trip was just about an hour each way. We enjoyed Puerto Banus and Benahavis. We drove to Ronda which was breathtaking but the drive up is a little nerve wracking. We did make our way to El Corte Ingles. We had no idea what it was. My husband who does not enjoy shopping really liked it. We do no longer have stores like this in the U.S. that carry everything under one roof. We will definitely be making a return visit and recommend the property and area. Thank you Mark for opening up your vacation home to us.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review, I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you and your family again.
All the best
