Stayed for a week at this apartment with our children ages 1, 4 and 13. We arranged a return transfer via the apartment owners which proved to be stress free and made for an easy start (and end) to our holiday. We were met on arrival and shown around the apartment. The apartment is clean, well presented and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. We made use of the BBQ on the balcony and enjoyed the lovely sea views.

The apartment is on top floor (3 floors) accessible by a lift. There is a lovely main pool and kiddy pool where we spent sometime each day. There is also a small play area. The complex is secure and we noticed that each morning there were maintenance workers checking the pool and grounds and everything was kept clean and tidy.

There is a Lidl supermarket next to the apartment complex which is excellent for stocking up and we made very frequent trips there!

La Cala De Mijas town centre is approx 15 minute easy walk from the apartment where you will find the usual shops, restaurants, bars etc. The town has a more 'Spanish' feel to it than some of the other towns along the coast, which we really liked. We also noticed that there were very few high rise buildings which meant that you could be quite a way back from the sea but still enjoy a sea view.

The local bus service runs along the main road at the front of the apartments (this in no way is too close to the apartment) one direction to Marbella, the other direction to Fuengirola. Both places worth a visit.

The owners were very responsive to our questions before the holiday and phoned for feedback upon our return which was a nice touch.

Overall excellent accommodation, super location and wonderful weather made for a great family holiday. We would most certainly return and would highly recommend.

A very good well equipped apartment with lovely views from the large balcony and easy walking access to the facilities in La Cala De Mijas.

Mick and Sue (the owners) were easy to contact and promptly answered any queries re-the booking. They also were kind enough to call us immediately after our return, to check if everything had been satisfactory and the deposit was returned promptly.

We would certainly recommend this apartment.

“Excellent Family Holiday”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This accommodation had fantastic reviews and so we were very eager to see if it lived up to our expectation and we were definitely not disappointed! It is everything you would need for a very enjoyable family holiday.

The accommodation is a very high standard with all the comforts of home which was of the utmost importance to us as we were travelling with the three children, aged 10, 8 and 4. The apartment comfortably fit all of us and was very clean upon arrival. There was loads of extra bed linens and towels as well as a large amount of cutlery, tableware and kitchen utensils...really everything you could need which meant you didn't have to eat out every night if you didn't want. There is a large Lidl supermarket within 5 min walking distance from the apartment which was extremely convenient for all your shopping needs. The complex itself was friendly and relaxed, very well maintained with two pool areas set in pretty gardens...a really lovely place to spend the day by the pool.

The gorgeous town of La Cala is an easy 10-15 min walk from the complex. It's small streets with the pretty white buildings were a joy to walk through. The people are friendly and everywhere is well maintained, from the children's park at the end of the footbridge to the lovely beach and promenade area. The town offers a generous choice of restaurants all of which were of a good standard (some were excellent!), and some bars and shops, all well within walking distance. La Cala is a real jewel in the Costa Del Sol, and much prettier and more charming than it's larger neighbours Fuengirola, Marbella, Benalmadena and Torremolinos. These larger towns were very accessible with an excellent bus service to Fuengirola only 5 min from the apartment, where connections were available at the Bus and Train station. There is a good market on in La Cala on a Wed and Sat morning, which again is only 5-10 min walk from the apartment.

Recommended restaurants in La Cala were the Cantonese beside Biddy Mulligans which was excellent food for a very reasonable price, Biddy's itself which was good for burgers etc. and a great place to watch the sport and Exquisite, which had lovely pasta and pizzas etc. A very special mention goes to El Gusto which is also beside Biddy's which was absolutely gorgeous, fabulous food and really great service, not too mention the best Sunday Roast we have ever had outside of Ireland!

The apartment owners, Mick and Sue, were also a joy to deal with, very quick to reply to emails and to return our security deposit, and also gave us a couple of lovely personal calls to see how our holiday went after we had returned.


Overall we loved La Cala and Mick and Sue's apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone. Hopefully we will visit again very soon!
