Outside, there is light, power and water available on the terrace, with a dining table and chairs, making it a fantastic area for eating and relaxing any time of day or night.
As this is our second home we have ensured the apartment comes complete with everything you need to enjoy your holiday in comfort. Our large fully fitted kitchen has been totally refurbished and provides all the facilities needed to cater for families incorporating top quality appliances which include microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, built in oven and grill, coffee machine, juicer, plus a full compliment of utensils, crockery (including children's) and glasses - complete with black granite work surfaces.

The master bedroom boasts a king sized double leather sleigh bed, with french doors that lead out onto the terrace and garden.
Home entertainment includes flat screen colour TV's in the lounge and main bedroom. We are not affected by the lack of satellite TV in southern Spain as we have installed a brand new internet provider TV system which receives the full range of UK terrestrial channels, Sky Sports 1-4 and Sky News, plus a vast range of international channels. It also provides a huge selection of free up to the minute movies, radio channels, internet and YouTube.
If you wish to bring your own entertainment we also have a DVD player in addition to a CD stereo. We also have free broadband Wi-Fi access.

Being at the heart of the complex, you are 2 minutes walk to all 5 pools, one heated all year round . You are also only a 3 minute walk to the 4 free tennis courts, 3 padel courts and the golf driving range which are free and exclusive to El Presidente residents. A 5 minute stroll alongside a narrow stretch of woodland and unspoilt sand dunes and by some superb villas between the complex and the sea, takes you to the beach, children's play area and to one of three local beach bars/chiringuitos.
There are numerous free sun loungers available around all of the pools as well as plenty of shaded grassy areas to relax out of the direct sun. The large main pool is beautifully landscaped and boasts a central island and jetty, with gently sloping sides and for the children, an enclosed shallow area. There is a lifeguard on duty in the peak summer months.
For anyone requiring two apartments close together, we also own a fabulous, large 2 bed Penthouse apartment on El Presidente which sleeps five plus a baby. Please contact us for further details.
The Andalucia region
The attraction of this area is that it has something for everyone, catering for all types of holiday ranging from chilling out by the pool to more cultural or sporting trips. Situated between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Mediterranean the area is renowned for a microclimate that produces over 300 days of sunshine a year. It is also one of the few places in Europe where you can ski in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon.
For the sports enthusiast the list is endless with year round perfect conditions for outdoor activities. There are over 30 excellent golf courses within easy reach, including the famous Valderama and San Roque. Tennis, swimming and padel are all available free at El Presidente. Walking, cycling and horse riding offer stunning views in the surrounding hills and skiing in the Sierra Nevada is just 2 hours away. Numerous blue flag beaches offer a wide variety of watersports activities, including the European Windsurfing capital at Tarifa.
The choice in locations is equally varied, from Andalucia's historic white villages and elegant cities including Seville, Cordoba, Granada and Jerez with their Moorish and Roman influences, to the buzz of Puerto Banus marina with its shops, restaurants and non stop nightlife, to the elegance of Marbella's with its fashionable relaxed atmosphere.
El presidente is located midway between the towns of Marbella and Estepona, both of which have maintained their unique Spanish feel and offer a variety of shops, restaurants, bars and some of the best beaches in the area. The inspiration for this superb development came from the design of the magnificent Alhambra Palace in Granada. We chose this apartment as our second home because of it's location in the original, established part of El Presidente, overlooking the mature sub tropical gardens. El Presidente benefits from a traffic free environment and round the clock security. In addition it is just a short 3 min walk to our own sandy beach & children's playground and Chirinquito.
If you want to leave your car and enjoy a drink in the evening you can do, as we are a short walking distance to numerous excellent restaurants and several bars. There are also local shops a short distance from the apartment where you can stock up on anything you need for your holiday.
A five minute drive will take you to the fashionable and stunning resort of Puerto Banus where the rich and famous moor their magnificent yachts. It's well worth a visit to this thriving town and a stroll around to take in some fabulous sights and window shop in the designer boutiques. El Corte Ingles, the famous spanish department store, has a very large shop here with a very upmarket supermarket located in the basement. There are an abundance of bars and restaurants around the port - not all of which break the bank!
For those of you who prefer not to drive,within the immediate vicinity of the El Presidente, you are spoilt for choice with restaurants - the range is endless; from small local Bodegas and Tapas bars to excellent Italian, Chinese, Indian and Bistro restaurants serving modern, international cuisine in stylish surroundings. Nightlife is on hand with the casinos and nightclubs and piano bars of Puerto Banus only 10 minutes away.
A short drive inland is the picturesque hill village of Benahavis with its reputation for splendid restaurants at very reasonable prices and is the home to some of our favourite restaurants.
There are plenty of family activities including theme parks, water parks and safari parks and dolphin watching.

A very spacious, clean and well equipped apartment in a lovely development. We had an amazing holiday relaxing by the pool, visiting the various beaches nearby and enjoying the food. Sean and Deborah made us feel very welcome and provided us with lots of information of the area and local attractions.

From initial inquiry right through to return of deposit Debbie and Sean's contact was brilliant. The apartment was larger in real life than it looked in the pictures. It was also well equipt with everything we needed to provide us as a family, giving us time to reconnect and relax. The advise from Debbie & Sean re the great local restaurants and beach that was within strolling distance. Great advise on saving time & money but using Helle Hollis car hire, who also upgraded us to the next car. Fab holiday. The memory foam pillows in the master bedroom were a touch of luxury too. Thanks. xxx

"Great place to stay!"
Many thanks for such a lovely holiday in your super apartment. This is the third time we have stayed with you and we will return. Everything is spotless and very well cared for. Unlike most holiday rental apartments, yours is the best equipped we have ever found. The kids loved having access to the toys to take to the pool and it saved us from taking them away!
It is nice you offer such a personal service and any minor issues were dealt with swiftly!

"great place to stay"
Lovely , well equipped apartment on a very well maintained complex. close to shops ,restaurants and beach. the complex has a choice of 5 pools and mature gardens with plenty of sun beds, 4 tennis courts and 3 paddle courts . On nights where we decided to self cater the terrace was ideal for a BBQ and a social gathering with friends. We had a very relaxing holiday and look forward to returning back here again.
