We always recommend car hire for the convenience of a self catering holiday and our location makes for such easy driving and quick access to all the other resorts, attractions and sights along this lovely coast and with your own car you can get about at your own leisure and timetable! There is a small bus service which runs from outside the complex and takes you into the main 'heart' of Calahonda (2km) whereby you can access all the other major bus routes that service this coast and taxis are readily available at a cost of approx 6€ from the complex to Calahonda.

Interaction with guest

To take the stress out of your arrival & to ensure the start of your holiday goes as smoothly as possible, we will be in close contact with you prior to your departure to discuss all aspects of your holiday. We also include an excellent Meet & Greet service with a very easy to find meeting place (full directions from Malaga airport provided), this takes away all the hassle from trying to find where to pick up your keys in unknown territory! The M & G service includes a full tour of the apartment, an explanation of how everything works air con, TV etc & a general orientation to local facilities to get you started. Lastly our manager will be contactable throughout your stay in the event you need assistance with any aspects of the apartment!

“Perfect stay”

Reviewed 15 Jan 2016

A bit away from the beach, and not much city. Apartment was perfect. Small problem with a bed was solved within 1/2 hour. Houselord kept up well informed.

Owner's reply: Hi Kim & Family - thank you for your review from Denmark! I agree that Calahonda is best described as a smaller family orientated holiday resort when compared against resorts such as Fuengirola and Torremolinos and with the closest city being Malaga where you will find historic buildings, museums etc amongst the more modern and new buildings which gives Malaga its eclectic mix! Calahonda is nestled conveniently midway between Fuengirola and Marbella with 'many' bars, restaurants and a good choice of supermarkets and Calahonda's own lovely Royal Beach is just a short 5 minute drive from our complex (2km), with either Cabopino or La Cala a further couple of minutes away! We were very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and that you have appreciated the information and communication we gave you pre and post stay and the service provided locally during your stay. Thank you for writing in our guest book which outlined how well equipped our apartment was, how much you enjoyed the outdoor facilities and last but not least, the view from the terrace! We look forward to seeing you return in the future and in the meantime we wish you all the best. Kind regards, Sharon & Darren

“With wonderful views, this well equipped & luxurious apartment makes for fabulous holiday”

Reviewed 22 Sep 2015

Excellent personal service from Sharon during booking & being met on arrival meant everything got off to a great start Little extras like the shopping list also appreciated since we were arriving late evening & there was no local shop available Lovely apartment with everything you could possibly need plus things you didn't realise you needed! Car essential due to the location & no local shops for provisions (I believe there was one within walking distance but apparently this is now closed) Great location for visiting local areas, in particular Mijas is definitely worth making the effort for! Thanks again to Sharon for the use of your lovely holiday home, will definitely revisit and recommend to friends:-)

Owner's reply: Hi Dave & Hayley - Thank you for your review! We were very happy to hear that you had enjoyed your stay in our apartment and that you appreciated the meet & greet and shopping service upon your arrival, as you say, these little things do help to make the start of your holiday go more comfortably and stress free! Yes, a shame the little local shop has gone, it is now an extension of the ever popular Miel y Nata restaurant, which the good point on that is, there is now more of a chance of getting a table at that restaurant! however and one of the reasons why we always recommend car hire for the purposes of a self catering holiday, better bargains, choices and prices can always be found in the bigger supermarkets and as you would have found, the nearest supermarket (Supersol) is just a 3 minute drive from the complex! We always recommend a visit to Mijas (one of our favourite places, with many 'menu del dia's' to choose from, yummy!), Mijas is one of the prettiest 'white villages' of Spain and due to our location, only 15 minutes drive from the complex, so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit there too! We look forward to seeing you return in the future and in the meantime we wish you all the best. Kind regards, Sharon & Darren

“Excellent accommodation and superb views from the balcony”

Reviewed 4 Feb 2015

The only fault was poor reception on the TV but i am assured that this was a temporary blip. We enjoyed our stay so much that we have booked to return in November

Owner's reply: Hello David & Judy - Thank you for submitting a review following your recent stay. We did discuss the TV reception following your return and agreed that it must have been a 'blip' as no other problems reported by other guests throughout the previous year and we ourselves had just spent 2 weeks in the apartment previous to yourselves and experienced no problems. For people viewing this and to be fully aware, UK satellite TV was switched off in Spain in February 2014 and the only way now to receive TV channels other than the local Spanish stations is by subscribing to local providers who then stream in selected channels via the internet. When streamed wirelessly, atmospheric changes can 'at times' buffer programmes as well as having other wireless connections i.e. laptops running at the same time as the TV. As much as this is a common problem throughout all of Spain since the satellite switch off, it does not happen that frequently! However going back to your review and as you pointed out when we had a chat following your return, the TV was not the main focus of your holiday, it did not spoil your holiday and you found all other aspects of our accommodation and its standard, to be very much to your liking and as your review states, you have already booked with us to return in November this year, which is always the best compliment we can get!! - thank you. We look forward to your return and will be in touch again in due course. Kind regards Sharon & Darren

“Fantastic penthouse !”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2014

We (family of four) spent two weeks at this penthouse in July 2014 and had a great holiday. Sharon and Darren, thank you for letting us use your penthouse. As other guests have commented the terrace is great, very large with sun all day. Inside the accommodation is spacious and furnished to a very high quality. There is pretty much everything you could want or need for your stay. Having rented many apartments and villas over the last few years, this is without doubt the best that we have stayed in! There are four pools on the complex and they are surprisingly quiet. We stayed during the school holidays and often there were only a handful of families around the pool so his was great and very relaxing ... No fighting for sunbeds! The penthouse is within walking distance of a couple of very nice restaurants, in particular El Gaucho. Having stayed near Calahonda several times, we didn't realise how many good quality restaurants there are in the resort. Devines was very good, very child friendly with reasonable prices. Finally, the booking process from first enquiry to stay was a breeze! Sharon was extremely helpful with any questions we had. All in all a great place to stay and we are returning in 2015!

Owner's reply: Hi Brendan - Thank you for your review! It reconfirms what previous guests have commented upon about the quality and spaciousness of the apartment with its 'home from home' comforts and especially the lovely large terrace area which is enjoyed by all both day and night! Yes the pools are quiet and relaxing, yes the restaurants within walking distance are very good and yes, Calahonda itself has many other excellent and child friendly restaurants as you have now experienced! The fact that you have already booked another fortnight stay with us next summer, is the biggest compliment we can get (thank you!) and we do look forward to accommodating you and your family next year as one of our many returning guests! We will be in touch again in due course. Best wishes & kind regards, Sharon & Darren

“Fantastic Holiday”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2014

We had a fantastic holiday staying in this wonderful apartment. The views from the spacious balcony were amazing. The accommodation is furnished to a very high standard and included everything you could need for a very enjoyable holiday. We spent many an evening out on the terrace relaxing with a nice cool drink. The pool was never crowded even though we stayed in August. We recommend car hire which enables you to visit all the wonderful locations the Costa del Sol has to offer. Sharon and Darren are extremely helpful and a pleasure to speak to. All in all we highly recommend staying at this wonderful penthouse apartment.

Owner's reply: Hi Karen & family - Thank you for submitting a review for us but mostly for the potential guests considering our apartment and who are reading these reviews, as comments, tips and advice from guests who have actually stayed with us, are very important in their final decision making! We did have e-mail communication between ourselves early on during your stay and you commented immediately on much you were "absolutely loving the apartment" and the review you have submitted, reconfirms this! As always, the terrace never fails to please and yes the pools don't get overcrowded even in August! It was a pleasure speaking with you on your return and the personal feedback you gave me and we look forward to seeing you return again in the future! Best wishes & kind regards, Sharon & Darren

“Lovely Apartment,Fabulous views,Excellent aftercare...... Brilliant Holiday.”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2013

My wife and I stayed here with her elderly Mother who has some mobility problems. I knew as soon as we contacted Sharon,who rented us their property, we were going to be well looked after and would have a wonderful stay, She gave us all the information and guidance we needed through a series of emails. We were met by the very welcoming and friendly Monica who looks after the apartment and she took us directly there. The Apartment itself is well maintained with all the facilities you would need and fabulous views from a terrace which gets the sun ALL day. It has three good sized bedrooms and a very large lounge/sitting room. It also has an elevator with direct access. There are several pools ( four I think) which you have access to. It is in a nice quiet area, though you definitely need a car. (Underground parking space) All in all I can't praise Sharon & Monica enough for their assistance before AND after our holiday and I would highly recommend them to everyone.

Owner's reply: Hi John & Irene - Thank you for your lovely review of our apartment! Having done private rentals ourselves, we understand the importance of having good communication with the owner and always do our best to be on hand with help, assistance and information to help take away 'pre-holiday worries' we are always there during and after your stay as you now know!! Yes you are correct, there are 4 pools plus 2 small children's' pools and your review does help reassure other people that our apartment is more than suitable for guests with mobility difficulties and we have comfortably accommodated previous guests who have required the use of wheelchairs. Thank you for enjoying and commenting on our large terrace area and view - always a 'hit'! It was a pleasure to have accommodated you all and we look forward to see you return! - Kind regards Sharon & Darren

“Lovely holiday”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2013

Lovely apartment finished to a very high standard. The beautiful and spacious balcony area was very relaxing to come back to at the end of the day.

Owner's reply: Hi Karen & Family - Thank you for your recent stay with us and for posting a review! The feedback you gave us following your return was extremely positive, especially your comments about the high quality of our apartment and like all previous guests, you particularly enjoyed and appreciated the use of the large terrace area to relax on following your days out along this lovely coast! We look forward to seeing you return for another holiday in the future! - Best wishes & kind regards, Sharon & Darren

“Holiday with family”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2012

We were four adults and two children. The apartment is very comfortable and well equiped. Plenty of room for all of us. The balcony is particularly spacious where one can get the sun at any time of day, and bbq. Even plenty of games for children if needed. Good eating places just within walking distance but a car is recommended especially for the beaches.We tended to walk down to the restaurants and taxi back, 6 euros. Choice of beaches within a ten minute drive. Good size pools on site. We like walking and there are hill walks right on the doorstep. All in all a good holiday apartment.

Owner's reply: Thanking you for your review of our apartment, which we hope as always, will be useful to other viewers and potential future guests! From our conversations before your departure, we knew that your family were keen walkers and our guest information book outlines a particular walk from our complex up to the 'old fire watch tower' which from this point, gives a far reaching and fantastic view of most of this coast to include the village of Mijas and Gibralter!. Yes, the most local recommended restaurants to the complex to walk to are very good then, as you say, to reach many more good restaurants in the heart of the resort, it is either just a 3 min drive (if you don't want to walk down) or a short, inexpensive taxi ride away. We do always recommend car hire to our guests for the sheer convenience of getting about under your own steam, self catering purposes and for all the 'beach gear' that guests carry! We were very happy to hear following your return, that when you holiday in this area again, you would be giving us a call, that is always the best compliment we can get! We look forward to see you return in the future. All the best for now. - Kind regards Sharon & Darren

We had 5 days at this stunning apartment. From start to finish we had the most brilliant time. The apartment was pristine (and we are very fussy) and arrival procedures from Jacqui and Tom were very smooth. Excellent customer service nothing was too much trouble for Sharon as we had to amend our booking at last minute The apartment is kept to the highest standards with lovely furniture and high quality bathrooms. Perfect location but always looked forward to coming back to the Penthouse, it was so peaceful and sunny. We will definitely be back Kindest Regards, Michelle and Phil Whitehead

Owner's reply: Many thanks for posting a review for us, we do appreciate this so that other potential guests who are looking at our accommodation, can benefit from reading your experience with us. I know I spoke with both of you following your return and was most happy to hear that both of you could find absolutely no fault with our penthouse apartment at all, to include its standard, decor, cleanliness, location and the great view! .....and it is testiment enough to us, to hear that you are already planning a return visit to us and have indeed, already recommended our accommodation to friends of yours!! So on that note, I need not say anymore, other than wish you both a lovely summer and we look forward to seeing you both return shortly! Kind Regards Sharon & Darren

“Wonderful penthouse apartment with views to die for”

Reviewed 13 Apr 2012

Just returned from great week at this 3 bed apartment. Calahonda is a great town in a fab location near the sea. So much to do in the area. The apartment is amazing. Beautiful location, stunning views, and spotlessly clean. All very up to date, with high quality furnishings. The owner took an amazing amount of trouble with our booking, everything was organised like clockwork. The team out in Spain couldn't be more helpful too. So all in all, highly recommend.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review and the speed at which you made it following your return! Your review and personal opinion of our penthouse is of particular significance to us on this occasion since your own profession is in hotel marketing! So with your knowledge and experience of accommodation standards and customer relations, your review is greatly appreciated by ourselves and does help confirm that we are getting things right for our guests and your review further compliments and reinforces all our other previous positive reviews! We hope to see you returning shortly, until then.......all the best. Kind regards Sharon & Darren
