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, 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!

Further details

A complementary welcome pack including essential food items such as tea, coffee, milk, bread, water, wine, etc. is included in the price Please ask if you have any additional requirements.

There are no additional charges whatsoever, including cleaning, heating, electricity, etc. Also we do not charge extra for Easter, Christmas and New Year or other public holidays.

Further details indoors

The apartment is tastefully furnished in a modern yet comfortable style and benefits from marble flooring throughout. Both bathrooms are finished in marble for that extra touch of luxury.

The lounge includes a HDTV with UKTV together with a DVD player and CD player.

If required, a cot can generally be made available at no extra cost - Please ask for availability.

Further details outdoors

There is a large 40m2 terrace directly overlooking Cristo Beach (Playa del Cristo) which is only 50 metres away via private access.

For your peace of mind, if you have hired a car, the apartment also provides secure underground parking with a gated security entry system. The apartment can be accessed from all levels by two reliable lifts.

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.

Estepona Puerto/Marina

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.

“Great place to stay”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2016

We have recently spent 3 most enjoyable weeks in this apartment and would like to reiterate all the sentiments of the previous holidaymakers. The apartment is spacious, well maintained and the kitchen has everything you need. It is situated not far from the Estepona Golf Club if you intend playing golf on holiday. If we visit Estepona in the future, we would like to say here again.

Many thanks for leaving a review and also for your kind comments. Andy.

“Wieder in Estepona”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2016

Kommunikation mit Andy war ausgezeichnet, obwohl wir kein Englisch sprechen. Google mat es möglich. Die Wohnung unter dem Preis-Leistungsverhältnis hat die beste Note verdient. Die Freundlichkeit bei der Aufnahme inkl. Lunchpacket und Sekt war sehr nett und bleibt lange in Erinnerung. Die große Terrasse mit Sicht aufs Meer hat dafür gesorgt, dass wir die Wohnung lediglich für das Schlafen nutzten :). Wir haben Den Kontakt und die Wohnung schon weiterempfohlen. Danke Beata und Andy :*

Vielen Dank!

“Fabulous Apartment”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2016

Just had a wonderful 10 days at this wonderful well equipped apartment. We we're made to feel very welcome. Arrival and departure went very smoothly Everything thing we needed was there. We made the most of the terrace and self catering facilities, although we ate out a few times Including Thapa Thai in the marina. Taverna Miguel in the old town , Havana beach bar at Christo beach and some Chiringuitos on the beaches. Drinks were enjoyed at Healy Macs and Jazz Bar. We felt Estepona is one of the most beautiful Spanish towns we've visited and spent many a hour walking the long promenade. We will definitely return one day and would recommend staying at this lovely apartment.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the apartment and also found Estepona as wonderful as we do. If you decide to visit Estepona again in the future please let me know as we would be more than happy to have you stay with us again in the future. Regards, Andy

“fabulous apartment with great terrace & views”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2016

Enjoyed a lovely week and this fabulous apartment. We were met on arrival by Andy & Beatta and shown around and given good information about the area and places to go. The fridge and cupboard were stocked with necessities including bread, milk, eggs, teas and coffee. We were also left a bottle of wine, which we enjoyed on our first evening on the beautiful terrace. The view from there is just gorgeous. The apartment and terrace are well equipped with everything you need for a week or two in the sun. The communal pool, is down a level from the apartment, and can be viewed from the terrace. We decided not to hire a car, and because of the location of the apartment it was not needed. We got the direct Airport bus from Malaga to Estepona. During our stay we caught the bus from nearby to Marbella (Puerto Banus) and in the other direction La Linea (for Gibraltar). There are shuttle buses to take you to the main bus station - which is now located a good bit out of the town, however a taxi from the taxi rank is also good value. A visit to the Old town is a must, an easy 10 minute walk, or 15 minute stroll. There are many lovely places to eat around the Marina and the bonus of having access to Cristo beach from the back gate of the Marina Bay apartments was brilliant. All in all a wonderful trip, and we are already considering going back to stay in the same apartment.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and also for your fabulous feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and would welcome you back again in the future. Regards, Andy & Beata.

“Great location for a relaxing break”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

From enquiry to booking, arrival to departure Andy was professional, efficient and very helpful. Andy provided a wealth of information about the apartment and Estepona before we arrived which made it all the simpler to start relaxing from the get go. The journey from Malaga to Estepona is direct - the A7/E15 takes you all the way to Avenida del Carmen and from there it's a 5 minute drive to the apartments. Sue met us outside at exactly the time she said and within ten minutes we were inside and unpacking. We stayed in apartment B32 which has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a kitchen, lounge/diner and large terrace. The apartment was left very clean and the welcome pack and offer to use anything in the kitchen was very nice. The terrace is sunsoaked all day and the view of the Med is fantastic. The outside furniture is comfy as is the sofa inside when it gets too hot. The air con works very well. Cristo beach is reached via the rear exit of the apartment complex and we could be on a beach lounger within 5 mins of leaving the apartment! The beach bar/restaurant (Havana Beach) does excellent food and of course, cold drinks. The sunloungers/parasols are 5 euro per day each. We ate out most lunch times and evenings either at the beach or the Marina. We liked Halamon Bar for simple tapas. We liked El Cazador although the portions were very big and the menu a little limited. De La Mar above the Marina is a nice relaxing Dutch/English bar with good value tasty food. Le Briconnet del Puerto was nice too - right next to the water. We ate in at the apartment a couple of times, first shopping at the massive Carrefour in east Estepona but after we found the SuperSol supermarket a few minutes walk across the road we didn't bother with anywhere else. Great little supermarket at good prices so not worth the trip through town. We didn't venture far from the beach and Marina. We went to the Wednesday and Sunday market - fine for a stroll around. We walked into Estepona town a few times - a very nice clean and friendly place. By car we went to Gibraltar which took under an hour and Puerto Banus, 20 minutes in the other direction. This trip sealed the deal. We've been to Spain many times over the years and this time decided that we will put down more permanent roots there. We'll be planning a fact finding trip in the winter and looking to invest sometime in 2017!

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments. It is appreciated. Good luck in the property hunt! Regards, Andy.

“Fantastic apartment, had a great time.”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

We were met by Sue at the Marina Bay apartments who showed us around & made sure we were settled in ok. The apartment was ideal for us, very clean & well equipped. The welcome pack that Andy supplied (included in the price) was most welcome. We were also sent an extensive information pack on local restaurants, Estepona & surrounding area during the easy booking process, it came in very handy indeed. The apartment is close to Estepona marina with its good assortment of places to eat & drink, never had a bad meal during our stay. The huge terrace was used every day to sunbathe & relax with a couple of Cuba Libres. We had a great time at the Marina Bay apartments and would certainly recommend them not only to friends & family but to anyone looking for excellent holiday accommodation in a great location. Many thanks Andy.

Hi Tom, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and also for your positive comments - both are very much appreciated. Please get in touch if you decide to return to Estepona again in the future. regards, Andy & Beata.

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!!

“Couldn't ask for more”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2012

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. Highly recommended

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.

“Excellent location”

Reviewed 28 Aug 2012

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.

“Superb experience - first time in Spain”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2012

From the moment we contacted Andy to discuss the rental, to our regrettable return trip home (we didn't want to leave), we had an amazing experience. The apartment is in a delightful location with excellent views and superb facilities. Estepona and surrounding area is a credit to the Spanish tourism industry and we were never short of activities for when we tired of being on Cristo Beach or lounging by the peaceful pool. Gibraltar is well worth a visit if only to stock up on duty free (and petrol for the hire car). One of our best days was spent exploring the mountains from Casares all the way up to Ronda. We would not hesitate to recommend both the location and the apartment to future visitors. Thanks again for a great holiday.

Thanks for the lovely comments - it is still great to hear them after 10 years of letting guests use our properties for their holidays. Cristo Beach is a jewel and it is our personal favourite so it is nice to hear that you enjoyed it also. Well done for visiting Ronda & Casares. They are well worth the effort of leaving the beach behind.
