“Lovely Apartment, Wonderful Host.”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I'd like to thank Janet for arranging our stay at very short notice (our original booking fell through at the last minute). She was so helpful, answering emails at 2 a.m., contacting Paul to get the apartment ready for us, and generally going above and beyond to make sure our holiday went from impending disaster to absolutely perfect. On entering the apartment we saw so many little touches designed to make our stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible, from Janet's book of tips to the handheld games consoles for kids and even a Spanish mobile phone for our use. The comfort level was very high throughout as was the cleanliness, and the beds were as comfortable as any top class hotel. The location couldn't be more convenient: a short stroll to the friendly local bar and close to all other amenities such as shops, restaurants and beaches. We could be in the Old Town of Marbella in fifteen minutes or the beach at La Cala in ten. The boardwalk which stretches from the beach at the bottom of the road (a fifteen minute walk from the apartment) all the way to Fuengirola is a must, especially in the evenings when the views are spectacular. We have been villa holidaying in Spain for many years and Janet has ensured that our expectations are now higher than they were before.

“perfect apartment”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

wow what a wonderful apartment that could not be faulted. Janet the owner gave us lots of useful information both prior and during our stay. we took her advice and decided against a car and travelled to the apartment from the airport with Malaga taxis which cost 150 eur0s return trip an excellent professional company .We were met at the apartment by paul the property manager who showed us where everything was and said he was on hand anytime .
The apartment itself was fantastic had everything you needed and more down to beach towels ,extra bedding , books , games , chargers , plugs , tea , coffee and very comfortable beds with air con in every room.
The apartment is a in a mainly residential area by the feel of it lovely and quiet and we mostly had the pool to ourselves thew eek we were there. The pool was spotless with plenty of sunloungers. taking four kids aged 12-15 it was perfect being right next to pool as could cool off, have lunch ,get a drink in a couple minutes. it really was a ten min walk to beach and the local bar was very welcoming and lovely food. Janets information book was brilliant and we took the bus to a local market and to Marbella which is well worth a visit .
all in all would highly recommend this apartment .you couldnt ask for more.
we ate one night at the restaurant on the beach would recommend , food was lovely. Another evening we walked along the beach to the port and ate in Arthurs lovely food (although did feel a little ripped off paying almost 3 euros for a bottle of water and charged for bread rolls ) but food was excellent.
We had a fantastic holiday in a lovely apartment in a beautiful location close to the beach , a supermarket and easy to catch a bus to town close by.
Thank you Janet for a wonderful holiday your friendliness and attention to detail made it very special.

“There is nothing Janet hasnt thought of!! Home from home”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I cannot speak highly enough of the service Janet has provided from initial booking to our return home. The apartment has absolutely everything you need!! It was spotlessly clean and modern. The bedrooms are spacious with individual aircon so you can adjust to suit yourself. Janet provided way more than we expected, even down to a mobile phone to call a taxi! Our stay has truly converted us from hotel rooms with all inclusive (which is how we usually holiday)
I would say this is the best apartment in the complex. Sun terrace with sun beds, 6 seater dining table and chairs and patio sofa and coffee table-all right next to the pool where you can see your kids. It was lovely not to have to put towels on sunbeds, knowing we had our own :)
The area is beautiful. A down hill walk to the beach and local supermarket. A taxi is recommended for going back as it is a bit hilly if your not great on your feet. A taxi costs 5-6 euro. We ventured to Marbella, Feungirola & La Cala on the 220 bus which stops on the main dual carriageway (footbridge to cross to other side) this cost between 1.50 to 3 euro bargain! Marbella and Feungirola are the places you need to go if you want shops. If you get a bus from Marbella to Puerto Banus (10 mins) there is a large busy market.
My tip would be to go to Lidl (Los Cipresse, beside dual carriageway) and do a big shop the first day and taxi back up (5-6 euro). It has everything you need and its cheaper than supersol. Also read the 'introduction to the apartment' book which Janet has compiled. It is extremely useful and will help you get to know the areas and where to go!!!
We ate out a few times and also went to Bar 97 which is literally beside the apartment if you turn right from the pool gate. The owners are extremely nice and make you feel at home.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay and thank Janet for a lovely stay in such a well equipped apartment x

We are just back from our holiday after staying in this fabulous apartment. We booked this accommodation because it got great reviews and we where not disappointed. Not only was it clean, modern and well equipped, the owner has went to great lengths to ensure that it's a home from home, including beach towels, sewing kit, mobile phone and chargers, DVD's, CD's and games...everything you could possibly need! We really enjoyed having the loungers and seating area on the terrace, and the pool (which was never busy) was right on our door step, which was perfect!
The apartment was in a great location which made it easy to get around without a car. There is a good selection of bars, shops and restaurants within walking distance and a regular bus service also if you wish to go further afield and explore.
Finally, Janet, the owner of the apartment could not have been more helpful when we were planning our holiday. She was more than happy to answer any questions and did so very promptly.
We really enjoyed our holiday and would not hesitate to recommend to our friends and family. We hope to return soon.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 1 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This apartment was beautifully equiped, very clean, excellent beds and very tastefully decorated. It was ideally located for me peaceful but a short walk from shops, transport etc. There is a small, quiet friendly bar nearby serving a few meals, ideal if one wants to just pop out and not cook.
I will return again without hesitation.
