“Everything you need....and more!!!”
We stayed with our 3 boys under 7 for the first two weeks in August. The apartment was exactly as advertised on the excellent website and did not disappoint in any way. There was more than enough room for us all, and some of the included equipment was a real bonus- for example we brought one pram for our 20 month old but found the buggy provided was greatly helpful for our 3 year old as well( there is a bit of a walk up hill from the main resort!) This apartment has everything you can think of, so you don't mind having a few nights in ( not like when you stay in a hotel with kids and need to escape the confines of 4 walls!), as it provides a real home from home environment with the added bonus of luxuries like the hot tub and lovely terrace area to enjoy with a glass of wine once the kids are in bed. The resort of 'La Cala' was ideal for us- there are plenty of bars/ shops/ restaurants and a fantastic playground near to the apartment with an adjacent outdoor cafe where you can watch the kids from a safe distance. We enjoyed our stay that much that we booked again for the same time next year within 2 days of our return. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Owner's reply: It is always fun to have guests return to our La Cala de Mijas based holiday rental homes. That you booked within 2 days of arriving home is a great review by itself. We are glad to hear that you got to enjoy all the different equipment we purchased for babies and toddlers. If you can think of anything else that we should have then please advise. We are looking forward to next August, to have you back again.
“Perfect place for a trip with the girls!”
We just loved this place! We were three girls who spent one week here in the beginning of June, and we wish had booked one more week. We will definitely come back! The apartment has everything you could possibly wish for. A BBQ on the balcony, a blender for drinks and even make-up Mirrors in the bathroom (in addition to all regular kitchen-, living room- and bathroom stuff). Our favorite place to relax after a day at the beach was the balcony. It was so lovely, with a large dining table, Jacuzzi and a “sofa hang out”. We went to the beach every day, and it was perfect! We had nice weather, and there were really nice sunbeds with thick mattresses and umbrellas for rent. The beds in the apartment are also worth mentioning, they were just so comfortable we slept like babies. The town itself is really cozy, with restaurants and bars. We also took a taxi to Fuengirola and Malaga to explore the area a bit more. We will absolutely recommend this place to others. Everything was just so easy from booking, getting there, information folders and Sally who was very helpful throughout our stay. Thank you so, we will be back!.
Owner's reply: I am so glad to hear that the Train and Bus guide that we put together worked well for you and your group. Going from Malaga airport to La Cala de Mijas by public transportation is always around 1 hour and super cheap. Sally, our onsite manager, is awesome! She can always be trusted put together something special, should you want a food basket, birthday party balloons, or a Christmas tree. I agree that La Cala de Mijas can be a bit quiet if you want to go clubbing. There is only one place for that in La Cala, but there are plenty of pubs, bars, lounges, and restaurants. We hope to have you back again soon. You were great guests!
“Chill out and relax in style!”
Had a fantastic time at this apartment. It is like a home away from home. Everything is thought of and where you would expect it to be. Our needs were catered for very well. A cot, high chair and other toddler essentials were of top quality as was the whole apartment. We enjoyed the hot tub, which finished of the evenings well. Especially after a walk home up the rather steep hill. Nothing a taxi ride didn't remedy. It is set in quiet grounds and well kept. Round the pool most days it was very quiet and felt sometimes like our own private pool. Also the lidl's at the bottom of the road is great. Good food, cheap beer and only a short walk. All in all a great apartment, and would recommend to anyone who wants all the home comforts in a lovely complex.
Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and that you found all the baby and toddler friendly features to be helpful. It is our goal to have families that travel with young children to have an easy a time as possible, by reducing the amount of items that are needed to be brought from home. When we were first looking around to find a 2nd home in La Cala de Mijas we saw many beautiful homes that were up steep hills. We avoided these to ensure that families walking with strollers, and the older people with their walkers, would have no problems walking to our apartment. We picked this location because we thought it was perfect, with just a slight hill leading up to the garage with the elevator to the apartment. We were therefore a bit surprised about your comment about the steep hill leading to our apartment. We hope it wasn't all that bad, as we want to list and describe everything exactly the way it is, to ensure that everyone has a great time. We hope to have you back in the near future. We loved the care you showed for our home. You were excellent visitors to our home from home.
“Another Superb Apartment”
Having previously booked the owner's other apartment the Coral Beach we knew we would be happy with the Sandy beach. We were met by the new manager Sally who was prompt at meeting us at the apartment when we phoned her from the airport. Although we had been before Sally let us know about all the facilities and was excellent at giving us ideas of where to go in the area. If your looking for local info Sally is your girl. The apartment was really nice, modern and most importantly clean and a complete home from home. The apartment is well lit and bright giving a sense of open space. The Dining room was beautifully furnished as was the living room with the corner sofa and 2 seater sofa,enough for a big family to enjoy. The bedrooms were tastefully designed with the most comfy beds I have ever encountered, even in some 5 star hotels. The apartment has all the mod cons and top of the range white goods including a huge fridge freezer to hold as much beer and wine or salad if that's your thing. The kitchen again has everything you could possibly need including a teabag sqeezer, now that's service for you. The sun room was excellent and our favourite area to hang out after a invigorating walk on the local beach just 10 minutes walk away. Sit, relax and take in the sun going down in the distance with your gin & Tonic or glass of the local wine. Better still enjoy the view from your own private hot tub. We didn't have a chance to check out the pool area on our last visit as it was hidden in the tropical gardens. We wandered up the spiral pathway and were met by a sparkling clean beautiful large pool with little shaded break out umbrella areas. There were also plenty of sunbeds for everyone to use. The area also has clean toilets in the grounds. In the summer this would be ideal for families with children who perhaps do not want to walk to the local beach. There is plenty to do in the local area from the clean sandy beach to the local town of cala de mijas with a array of excellent shops and restaurants to choose from. There was also a new Lidl 5 minutes from the apartment for those last minute daily essentials. We highly recommend the Chinese restaurant Cantonese 2 which we visit on most visit's. For great food and drink and a superb price this cannot be beat. The owner is lovely and really courteous with the free liquer at the end of your meal and a bracelet for the ladies. The weather was mixed from a pleasant 17c to 22c. Not that we were cold after leaving a freezing Glasgow at -5c. If your looking for Quality, Relaxation, a real home from home then you need to book this gem of a aprtment in Cala de Mijas.
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for yet another superb review! As we have come to expect from you, your write-ups are so detailed, and have great advice for future guests. We haven't tried out the Chinese restaurant yet, so we go there next time we are in town. Thank you! Sophie
“Great holiday stay with extended familiy”
Our family with a 10 month old baby stayed in the Sandy holiday apartment for 8 nights and had a fantastic time. This holiday flat has an extensive set of amenities, many more than what one could normally expect, with no extra charges. We would highly recommend staying here and would love to come visit in the future.
Owner's reply: Hi, We are glad you enjoyed your stay with your 10 month old baby. Thank you for taking the time to review our home, and we are glad you found it to your satisfaction. Your idea for a soft play-floor will be purchased on June 3rd, 2013. Thanks!
“Wonderful apartment, wonderful area!”
We stayed for a week, dad, mum and two boys (8 and 10). Thanks to Sally for meeting us at the apartment, it really made us feel welcome. The apartment is well equipped, which made cooking at home easy when needed. As we stayed there in February, the weather wasn't warm enough to use the outdoor pools - not for the adults, at least. The boys used it twice, and on our pictures it looks really idyllic. The beach was also fun, and we spent some time chasing the waves. Afterwards it sure was nice to have a warm Jacuzzi to come home to, and it was used every day! We rented a car, which we highly recommend. There are so many things to do and see in the area, but they are easiest to reach by car. The aquarium in Benalmadena is okay on a rainy day. If you like walking in the mountains, you should go visit El Torcal de Antequera and look at the fantastic rock formations. Gibraltar was also fun; we rented a taxi that gave us a guided tour on the Upper Rock. In that way even the mother of the family – terrified of heights – could enjoy the trip, only occasionally suffering from death anxiety. The youngest boy, however, still hasn't forgiven the ape trying to steal his caps. This sure was a memorably holiday – we will be back!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your great review. It gave a lot of ideas of things to do for people visiting our holiday rental home. La Cala de Mijas is centrally located for day-trips to many locations in Andalucia. We hope you will be back again soon. We have tons of new games for the PlayStation 3, that I think the boys might enjoy :)
“We loved it”
We love this place! La Cala de Mijas should not be missed by anyone who likes the unique character of small towns in southern Spain. We looked at many apartments, and decided to stay with Sophie. We are so happy we did! Excellent place, high quality, beautiful community gardens with a private feel (they are enormous!), and a short, enjoyable walk to all the bars and restaurants, golf courses, and the beach (too cold when we were there in December). Thank you for being great hosts. Hope to be back within the year, to explore more of the historical cities and places in Andalusia.
Owner's reply: Hi, We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and that you want to come back again soon. We can't blame you. La Cala de Mijas is amazing, and the apartment complex is so well kept by the onsite staff. Thank you for sharing your experiences with the online community of future guests. Sophie
“Wonderful, clean and spacious appartment”
My wife and I needed a getaway and this apartment in La Cala was just the ticket. It's location was great as we did not want to be right on the beach or in the middle of town. Easy walking distance to the pool and the beach + many great restaurants. Lounging on the terrace was one of our favorite activities and it has a great outdoor/indoor feel to it. We can and will highly recommend this vacation rental to others.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to spread the word about your experience staying with us. It is much appreciated, and we hope to have you back again in the near future.
We stayed in one of Sophie & Elnar's apartments in September, It was our first stay in Cala De Mijas the apartment was like home from home with all mod cons.The Hot Tub on the balcony was a lovely touch. The pool area is lovely and very child friendly with plenty of grass area's for children to play on. There are plenty of Restaurants & Bars within walking distance & the Beach is 10 minutes away. We would definitely book these apartments again as they are absolutely beautiful. We would like to say a big thank you to Sophie & Elnar for all their help from the moment we booked nothing was to much trouble for them. We think whoever stays in these apartments will have a fabulous holiday. Karen, Dave & Danielle
Owner's reply: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us in La Cala de Mijas. We loved having you as our guest and hope to have you back again soon.
