Majestic Marina Bay
About the home
Marina Bay is a highly prestigous apartment complex directly overlooking, and with private access to, the renowned Cristo Beach (Playa del Cristo). The apartment is extremely spacious so you'll have plenty of space to spread out and enjoy your family time together and when night falls, you can tuck the kids up in bed and claim the evening for yourselves knowing they're sleeping safe and sound whilst you relax on the balcony watching the amazing sunsets.
Both the master bedroom and lounge lead to the large South facing balcony directly overlooking the beach enabling you to take in the breathtaking views of the coast including Gibraltar, North Africa as well as the amazing sunsets across the bay. As the balcony benefits from all day sun, air conditioning, ceiling fans, sun screens and shades are fitted to keep you cool even on the hottest days. Heating for the winter period is also provided, all at no extra cost.
The apartment has recently been refurnished throughout to an exceedingly high standard including all new furniture, furnishings, linen and towels. Previous guests have rated the apartment as deserving a 5 star rating - please ask for details of these independent reviews.
The fully fitted kitchen includes a full oven and ceramic hob, microwave, kettle, toaster, fridge-freezer, washing machine, dish washer, etc. Whether it's just somewhere to make tea & toast in the morning or creating mouth-watering meals, cooked with the freshest ingredients from the local markets, your own kitchen is invaluable. Or choose to escape the cooking completely and enjoy regional delicacies in the best local cafe bars and restaurants.
Estepona Marina with the local shops, tapas bars and restaurants is within an easy five minute walk and the beautiful, traditional white walled Estepona old town is also on the doorstep.
Our goal has been to provide a home from home for our guests, within one of the most beautiful, unspoilt and typically Spanish areas of the Costa del Sol. A truly wonderful apartment in a wonderful location!

The Costa del Sol region
Estepona is not your typical English holiday resort on the Costa del Sol. As a lot of Spanish from the North of Spain holiday in Estepona it has retained a true Spanish feel and avoided some of the over commercialisation which has spoilt some areas on the Coast.
Estepona itself has 2 EC Blue Flag beaches, a popular marina area with many tapas bars and restaurants and a lovely white walled town with a pedestrianised shopping area. All within a 5 minute walk.
Due to its natural environment, surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, Estepona enjoys a microclimate with over 325 days of sunshine per year and also lovely mild winters. A perfect escape for some winter sun.
Some local attractions that you may wish to visit are:
Gibraltar - Only 35 minutes drive from Estepona (and on the local bus route), Gibraltar is a sunny, VAT-free haven where you can find duty free bargains from electronic equipment & jewellery to leather & perfumes & haggling is encouraged! Make sure you don't miss the spectacular natural caverns of St. Michael's Caves or visit the Ape's Den, home to some of Gibraltar's famous Barbary Apes, the only free-to-roam primates in Europe. Watch out for monkey business as they can be mischievous and have been known to pick the occasional pocket looking for treats.
Puerto Banus - Puerto Banus is about 20 minutes drive away. It has a large number of designer stores including Versace and Armani. Perfect for millionaire spotting and you may also see a famous face in the marina as a number of Hollywood stars have summer homes there.
Laguna Village - A stunning high class shopping experience just 10 minutes drive away. Whether spending an extravagant day at the beach club, shopping in the designer stores or spending time in the luxurious bars and restaurants then Laguna Village (www.laguna-village.com) is the ideal place.
Selwo Safari Park - Only 20 minutes drive away and on the public transport route, Selwo is ideal for the perfect family day out. The park is based on an African safari park and houses 2000 animals from giraffes to panthers in semi-wild conditions. Like Jurassic Park, large open sided lorries drive you through the various animal enclosures and up into the hills above Estepona. There are elephants, bears, hippos and so much more to see. In the summer, cover up as it can get very hot and there is not much shelter.
Golf - There are over 20 courses within a 45 minute drive. The local Estepona Golf Club (www.esteponagolf.com) is reasonably priced between 20 - 60 euro's for a round and the Sunday Express regarded their greens as some of the best on the Costa Del Sol. Also Monte Mayor Golf and Country Club (www.montemayorgolf.laperlainternationalliving.com) with its exciting fairway winding through dramatic gullies, ravines and streams, offers a superb challenge to even the most experienced golfers.
Also trips to beautiful Ronda, Tarifa and Casares are recommended if you have time. Or why not try Tangiers, North Africa which is only a 30-45 minute ferry crossing away.
The Estepona / Estepona Puerto/Marina area
Marina Bay is ideally situated overlooking Cristo Beach (Playa del Cristo) and is an easy 5 minute walk from the heart of Estepona's thriving fishing port & marina. Cristo Beach is a delightful oyster-shaped cove of sheltered, gently shelving sand, ideal for children and for many years the beach has been awarded EC Blue Flag status for cleanliness and safety and in high season is manned daily with lifeguards. It also has well maintained toilet and shower facilities and a choice of 2 beach front restaurants (chiringuitos) with a true Spanish feel. Ideal for spending a full day on the beach!
Estepona has many facets which makes it a popular holiday destination for those looking for a relaxing break to unwind, eat well, have a cool drink and chill out, people watching.
Estepona Port and Town is typically Spanish and has retained all of it's charm even though it is a well established tourist destination. It has pleasantly managed to avoid a "night club" culture but does have a wide variety of restaurants & bars to chose from.
Within a 5 minutes walk from the apartment you will find several supermarkets and shops and the local tapas bars and restaurants situated in Estepona Marina.

We arrived late afternoon and had a warm welcome from Sue who looks after the apartment. She showed us around the apartment and advised us of various places to see around the local area which gave us... more

We were picked up from the airport as arranged by the owner and car seats were provided for our young children as requested. The owner and his partner were there to meet us at the apartment and showed us around etc.
The apartment was very spacious, clean and modern. Two bathrooms, large kitchen with everything you would need and open lounge and dinning area.
Lovely balcony directly looking over the sea.
Welcome pack with the essentials were provided on arrival, which was a great help as we arrived too late to go to supermarket. All towels and linen were provided which was nice quality.
The apartment was excellently located, just a few steps down to Cristo Beach, which is lovely and 5 mins pleasant walk to the Marina with plenty of great restaurants to choose from.
Lovely little parks for kids further along the beach just past the Marina.
Estepona is very pretty with stunning views and mountains.
Two supermarkets are just over 5mins walk of apartment.
Overall it was the nicest place we've stayed for a long time and we would love to go back in the future.
Thanks for your superb comments. It's great to hear that you and the family enjoyed your stay with us.
Estepona is a charming palce and not typical of the English style holiday resorts on the Costa del Sol and I'm please that you enjoyed your stay with us.

Despite our flight being delayed by over 2 hours, Andy & Beata gave us a very warm welcome and could not have been more helpful. The apartment is a credit to them and the photos don't do it justice, it is spacious, well equipped and definately a home from home with every little detail being thought of. The location, views and amenities are great and the holiday passed by far too quickly. We cannot recommend this apartment enough, the age of our group ranged from 6 months to 60+ and everyone had an amazing time. A big thank you to Andy & Beata.
We are pleased that your later arrival didn't affect the start of your holiday too much. Thank you for your kind comments. We have been letting guests use our apartments for more than ten years and it is still great to hear that they have enjoyed their stay with us as we know how important holidays are and we have made a lot of effort in making their stay with us as pleasurable as possible. I will see what I can do to make the photo's a better reflection of the apartments true quality.
