Location description from owner
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.
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.

“Lovely large apartment overlooking sea and beach”
We stayed in this apartment for 12 days and couldn't fault it. Everything we needed was there and it was beautifully furnished. The bedrooms are large with loads of storage space. English tv and wifi available and the kitchen is well equipped. There is a large balcony to sit and watch the sun go down. There is an easy walk down to the beach. You can be there within a couple of minutes. It is 5 minutes walk to the port with plenty of bars and restaurants and about a 20 minute walk to the old town. Brilliant holiday and we hope to return again.
Hi Carole, Thank you for your lovely review. Please let me know if you want to return again in the future. Regards, Andy & Beata.
“A beautiful apartment close to all amenities.”
I arrived on my own as I was visiting relatives in the area. Sue, who I found to be extremely helpful, met me close to the apartment and guided me to the underground car park. I think the apartment is a wonderful place to stay; the location is brilliant and the apartment itself is well stocked with everything you would need. A 'welcome pack' of basic groceries plus wine and beer were left in the fridge, a lovely touch. The apartment is located close to the Marina and Andy ( the owner) left a list of recommended local restaurants and places to visit which I found very reliable. As someone on my own I am pleased to say I found the apartment very secure. I would love to stay in this apartment again.
Hi Vonnie, Thanks for your kind comments I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you again in March '15.
“Excellantly equipped, spacious apartment and well located to all amenities”
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.
“Faultless Holiday - very hepful and accommodating owners”
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.
“All the comforts of home”
This is a spacious apartment near the marina. Compared to many Spanish apartments particularly holiday rentals it is large with two bathrooms and a sizeable living room and good sized kitchen and nice balcony with views across the beach towards Gibraltar. There is also easy underground parking at the property which was secure and well lit. There is everything one could need during ones stay and a welcome pack was included which was nice. The owner Andy is helpful and his emails and suggestions for things to do and visit are very informative and helpful, we were met by Sue on arrival at the apartment and again she was very pleasant and helpful and there is some comfort in knowing that there is someone nearby to contact if there was an issue, although in our case all went well. The apartment is 5minutes walk from the marina where there are a wide variety of restaurants and bars with a variety of cuisines to chose from. The centre of the old town is an easy 15-20 minute walk along the paseo which is a nice walk in itself. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for its location, facilities and the fact it is a just a really nice place to stay.
Thank you for your comments. Even after letting our apartments to guests for the last 10 years it is still really pleasing to hear that they have enjoyed their stay with us.
