Caserio de Calahonda
About the home
Caserio de Calahonda is a relatively small gated community of 47 apartments in 3 blocks. Situated in the sought after area of Jardines de Calahonda, adjacent to natural parkland, the atmosphere here is distinctly Spanish, with Moorish inspired architecture, pretty gardens, a tranquil courtyard and the scent of blossom in the air.
This large luxuriously appointed ground floor apartment enjoys direct access from its spacious private terrace to a delightful freeform swimming pool, and of particular benefit to guests with restricted mobility there is no need to negotiate any steps when entering the apartment via this poolside terrace.
Indoors, the king sized master bedroom leads to a full ensuite bathroom and the double and twin rooms share a shower room with walk in over-sized shower. All bedrooms have mirror fronted wardrobes with plenty of hanging space. There are docking stations in all bedrooms and the twin room has a tv with UK channels. There is a larger television in the living room, together with DVD player and entertainment centre. A selection of DVDs and CDs is on hand, as well as a choice of books and games. There is also a community library where you can browse through the large selection of books, take a DVD or borrow the set of golf clubs which has been left for residents to use, (on a first come, first served basis). There is a safe in the master bedroom and wi-fi is available. The master bedroom and living area have air conditioning/heating and each of the other bedrooms has a portable fan/heater. The fully fitted kitchen offers all mod cons and leads to the rear utility terrace, housing a washing machine.
In this wonderful climate al fresco dining is the norm and the terrace dining table will comfortably accommodate 6 people. There is a further suite where you can relax on the terrace with a pot of coffee or jug of sangria or you may prefer to lie back on a lounger and soak up the sun. A barbecue is also provided. The terrace is partly covered and at any time of day offers a choice of sun or shade.
This is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing pool or beach holiday but due to its location mid way between Fuengirola and Marbella, Calahonda is also a perfect base for sightseeing and for visiting many wonderful locations in Andalucia and Southern Spain. The Costa del Sol is a great choice for golf enthusiasts and the nearest courses are just minutes away from the apartment. From autumn right through to April visitors can even combine sun and snow as the ski slopes of Sierra Nevada are only two hours away. The apartment is a great choice for those who choose not to hire a car as all local amenities are within walking distance, public transport is cheap and reliable and bus stops for Marbella and Fuengirola are within easy reach.

The Costa del Sol region
Perfect for a holiday at any time, the Costa del Sol is famous for its wonderful year round climate, with the temperature rarely falling below 60º F in winter and a year round average temperature of 75º F. Whilst this is a great location for a beach or golf holiday, there are numerous other attractions and activities to suit all ages. For a taste of the real Spain a short drive inland will take you to the ‘white villages’ of Ojen, Istan and Mijas and on a day trip slightly further afield you could discover Ronda, Nerja, Seville, Jerez, Cadiz, Granada or Gibraltar.
The Calahonda / Jardines de Calahonda area
The area is served by Malaga airport, which is about 30 minutes drive from Calahonda. The main road is an excellent dual carriageway. Calahonda is only about 14 Kilometres from Fuengirola and 16 Kilometres from Marbella and although a car would be useful it is not essential to hire one as buses run every half hour to these towns, and are cheap and reliable. The local beach is a pleasant 10 minute stroll. Calahonda has numerous restaurants, bars and supermarkets and there are many attractions for all the family, including water parks, theme parks, riding stables, zoos, golf and water sports, all within a short drive.

Four of us thoroughly enjoyed a week in this excellent apartment. The accommodation is first class with every need catered for. The apartment is tastefully decorated. The terrace is ideal for relaxing in the sun.and the pool is an added attraction. During the day we enjoyed walking along the beach to Puerto Cabopino where there is a marina and several good restaurants. We also used the local bus to visit Fuengerola and Mijas. There is also a good mix of restaurants about 15 minutes walk from the apartment in the El Zoco Shopping Centre area. All in all a great holiday in highly recommended accommodation.
Thank you very much for taking the time to post such a positive review. I was delighted to hear you all enjoyed your holiday, especially at a time when winter seemed to have returned to the UK (in May)!

As advised by the owner this is a much loved second home, and it shows. The apartment has been extremely well decorated, from the three bedrooms, to the kitchen and two quality bathrooms. The terrace... more
Thank you for these kind comments. I don't usually get to meet my guests in person so it was a real privilege to be introduced to three generations of such a lovely (and appreciative!) family.... more

I stayed at this apartment with my elderly parents one of whom has minor mobility problems. The fact that it is a ground floor apartment suited the elderly, middle aged and young members of our group. In all we were a party of 5 and found the apartment very very spacious. The internal and external decor is magnificent and provided a calm relaxed feeling which was present from the 1st day. The apartment is well equiped with the things anyone could ever want or need for a wonderful holiday. Through a manual the owner has put a lot of time and effort into making sure holidaymakers have information about the area and some of the local attractions, she has even provided photgraphic instuuctions of how to get to shops and other regions of the Costa Del Sol. This was my first trip to Spain but I found these guides gave me a sense of knowledge and courage to explore. As it says in the manual, it is a much loved second home and having stayed there I would agree. We can't wait to return next year.
I'm so glad you all had such a good holiday and have already booked for next year! Thank you very much for taking time to post the review.
