Amazing 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 terrace.
The terrace is 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. The apartment benefits from air conditioning throughout and also window blinds to ensure you keep your cool even on the hottest days. Heating for the winter period is also provided, all at no extra cost.
The apartment has been furnished and equipped as a holiday home from home rather than a "rental unit" and so you should have all you need to enjoy your short break or long term stay. It has also recently been refurbished throughout to an exceedingly high standard including all new linen and towels.
The fully fitted kitchen includes a full oven and 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.

This apartment gives all that was mentioned on the website. Spacious, clean, Well furnished with a stunning terrace. 5 minutes walk from the restaurants and shops. The secure underground parking is very pleasant . The owner gives all the information you need about restaurants, shops etc. Even trips in the neighbourhood. We go back next year and highly recommand this apartment to both elder people and a family with children. The welcome pack is great. It was a warm welcome with also a bottle of wine waiting for us on the table .
Hi Emilie, Thanks your your lovely comments. It is brilliant to hear that you enjoyed your holiday with us. Your 2014 reservation awaits!!

An ideal holiday venue. For relaxing there is the beautiful Cristo beach which is only a stone's throw away and has well kept toilet and shower facilities and a great bar/restaurant. It is ideal for young children as the water stays calm in the bay and does not get deep quickly. The town is also quite interesting and not your typical hotel resort, and there are loads of interesting places to visit nearby. The apartment is lovely - spacious, well equipped, clean and homely, with great views from the veranda. The overall complex is peaceful and welcoming. The pool is a decent size and deep enough for diving one end, whilst also safe for children.
There is a decent supermarket only down the road and also a tourist information office, which was a useful source of information.
Thanks for your kind comments. It is great to hear that you have enjoyed Estepon and the apartment.
Cristo beach is a family favourite and even though it has superb facilities it does not get too busy even at the height of August.

We stayed in this apartment for a week in August, the apartment was very clean and well furnished. The air-con was, I am pleased to say, very well used. There are many restaurants in Estepona Marina but, given the excellent location so close to the beach, we spent a couple of evenings with a home cooked pizza and a bottle of sparkling wine enjoying the late sun while the kids played in the sea. I would definitely recommend this apartment and plan to visit again.
Thanks for your great comments. See you again soon.
