"Clean & spacious, with everything you need close by."
The apartment was lovely & spacious 2 great sized bedrooms & bathrooms & a clean spacious lounge kitchen & dining area. There is great outdoor balcony overlooking the pool. Part of the balcony is covered with table & chairs plus other seating great if you've got children as they can play in the shaded area whilst the adults can sunbathe in the open area. Unfortunately the week we went it rained for most of the week but there were some children's toys available to help keep our toddler entertained. The food pack was a really lovely touch and meant a trip to the shops wasn't required on arrival. Having Anthony & Lola living above was great they were exceptionally kind lending us an umbrella & generally being in hand. A thoroughly great place to stay the only thing I would mention there were quite a few steps to the apartment & to the short cut to the beach/shops we had a toddler in a pushchair so had to do a lot of carrying up & down steps so for families to be aware of this but I have to say no way would this stop me from booking again. We had a lovely holiday despite the rain :-)

"Perfect place for a relaxing family holiday"
We booked our stay at Chestnut Garden apartment through Holiday Lettings. Anthony responded very promptly and the rest of the booking process was very straightforward.
We arrived late evening and were greeted by Anthony who showed us straight to the property, everything was ready for us with the apartment being comfortable, spacious, well equipped and spotlessly clean. The next morning Anthony showed us the pool area and gave us a quick run through of local amenities including the beach, restaurants, supermarkets and directions to the nearby resort of Fuerengirola. The swimming pool is directly in front of the accomodation and for the best part of our holiday we had it almost exclusively to ourselves. A short drive away is the beautiful Mijas pueblo with its spectacular views, pretty white-washed spanish houses, village square and not forgetting the horse-drawn carriages and donkey taxis. On Wednesday's at noon in Mijas throughout the summer season there is flamenco dancing, arrive early to get the best view.
Anthony and Lola are the perfect holiday landlords, they are always on hand for tips, advice and answering questions but never under your feet or in the way.
Overall we had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday and hope to return very soon.

"A lovely villa in a lovely location!"
My family and I have been visiting this same villa for the past 12 years. The villa is spotlessly clean and very well looked after by the owners. It benefits from a large balcony/terrace which provides excellent access for sunbathing overlooking the pool. The pool and garden area is also excellently maintained and clean and is often vacant throughout the day resulting in often having the pool to yourself. The villa is located in an excellent position with Fuengirola and La Cala both within a 5 minute drive. A supermarket, restaurants and small beach are all just a few minutes walk away. A hire car is ideal in order to visit the many nearby towns including Mijas, Benalmadena and Marbella. These are all within a 20 minutes drive away.

"A relaxing place where you will always want to go back!"
We stay at Lola and Anthony apartment in this summer. We feel great, villa is close to the beach, the apartment is equipped with everything you need, pool and garden are just like the pictures. We stay a lot in the pool area, was relaxing
I would recommend anyone this small corner of Spain, which surely recharge you.
The owners are 5 stars, very nice people.
