“Beautiful Apartment” Thank you very much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful apartment. Not the tourist trap which suited us and was a quiet spot to use as a base to beaches and towns. Great Tapas bar on your doorstep, with locals and families in the majority. Supermarket had one of the best selections we have found outside of the usual hypermarkets. Great holiday.
“lovely Apartment” Just got back from a fantastic holiday at this apartment with my 2 girls..couldnt recommend it enough..the apartment is very roomy and spotlessly clean and like a home from home..will be visiting again next summer
“Great Apartment Would recommed” Travelled to Puerto Banus for a family wedding booked this apartment through Trip Advisor. From the very start we had very good communiations with the owners. We were met by Linda who had contacted us by phone, the welcome pack was amazing. The apartment was just as described it had everything we needed.
Private undercover parking is just outside the front door, the whole complex was very secure.
We have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone who wants a quiet and relaxing holiday within walking distance of the town, the pools were sparkling clean with a lifeguard on duty.
“Great Apartment, Extremely Helpful and Organised Owner” Very impressed with the apartment which was in a good location, clean and well-equipped. Great to have wifi and a TV with English channels as we were in in the evenings because we were travelling with my young daughter.
We had been worried that the pool would be cold, but it was in fact pleasantly warm. It is easy to walk to the sandy beaches - you have a choice and hit them whether you go right or left. The beach immediately behind the apartments is a stone beach and where all the surfers go - great to watch (especially sitting in one of the restaurants right next to the apartment with a Sangria to sip on!)
The booking process was very easy and Richard, the owner, is wonderfully helpful and organised. He gave us lots of information before we went, and was extremely quick to respond to any queries we had. On arrival we found that we couldn't open the patio doors because they had been jammed by the previous tenants; Richard ensured that this was rectified very swiftly, was great at communicating with us and very apologetic.
As Richard knew that we were staying in for dinner on a couple of the evenings he recommended an Indian restaurant/takeaway across the road in the City Centre shopping centre. We very much enjoyed the food and the owner, Patwal, was very friendly.
“Superb !!” We Stayed in this apartment for one week in April 2013. We have stayed in benalmedena a few times before but mainly on the coast and not up beside Arroyo. But we were pleasantly surprised with the plenty of good quality bars and restaurant's in the area. Before we had even arrived at the apartment the attention to detail was outstanding. The owners emailed us frequently prior to going with every bit of information and advice possible. We were met at the apartment buy the "meet and greet"guy as arranged who explained everything about the apartment. We also received a welcome pack of bread ,milk ,water,butter etc until we got a chance to go to the supermarket.
The apartment itself was immaculate. Everything there that you could possibly need .It felt like home from home almost immediately .We would definitely go back and I would recommend it to anyone.

“Restful holiday, close to beaches and nightlife” Only 30 minutes from Malaga airport. Lift for easy access. Lovely furnished apartment with all mod cons. Sunny balcony all day with distant sea view. Comfortable bed! Convenient for beaches, local shops and restaurants - some within walking distance. Have stayed in this apartment twice and look forward to going back again.
“What a beautiful apartment” I have just come back from a 2 week stay in this apartment, i have stayed on a few on Playa Bastian and i have to say that this is definatley the best we have tried. The views were lovely and everything was very at hand. We cook alot while we are away and found everything we needed in the apartment. The whole apartment is very homely. We had english tv ie bbc and itv which is always a bonus. I would recommend this apartment to anyone that wants a peaceful and spotless apartment to stay in, there is a taxi rank outside the apartment block so if you want to go out you can. Thank you for a very nice holiday.
“Spacious apartment, good location and friendly helpful host.” Mary was very pleasant and helpful. She provided instructions for us to take the metro from the airport and met us at Arguelles metro station, walking us to the apartment (5-10 minutes away) pointing out the supermarkets etc on the way.
The apartment is on the fourth floor with no escalator, but Mary’s partner assisted with getting our luggage up the stairs. It is on a busy one-way road, which we found noisy. Fortunately the bedroom is back from the road a little with no windows and with the bedroom doors closed we enjoyed a good nights sleep.
The apartment is spacious and has a homely feel with the bed providing a comfortable nights sleep. There is plenty of wardrobe space and a good-sized clothes rack for drying clothes. The kitchen has microwave oven, stovetop, dishwasher and washing machine. The bathroom has a shower over bath.
We really appreciated the supplies that Mary had waiting for us including bread, milk, butter, conserve and condiments so we didn’t have to rush off to the supermarket to get supplies. The wine and chocolates were also a nice treat.
The apartment was very convenient for our needs. It is about a 15-20 minute walk to the Palacio Real and Plaza Mayor is a bit further on. It is a long but manageable walk to the museum quarter and there is the option of the metro. The Arguelles metro stop is only a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment and the metro is a convenient and easy way to get around Madrid.
The apartment is also only a 20 minute walk from Principe Pio station to catch the bus to Sergovia and a 15 minute walk in the opposite direction to Moncloa bus station to catch the bus to El Escorial. The metro takes you to Atocha Renfe for the train to Toledo. These offer an economical and easy way to visit these sights on your own and at your own pace rather than taking a tour. We don’t speak Spanish but doing these trips by public transport was easy. Hence the apartment provided a great base for us to explore Madrid and the sights nearby.
In summary, Mary was very pleasant and easy to deal with. The apartment is well equipped and spacious. Our only reservation was the road noise but with the bedroom doors closed we slept well. The location was also great for our needs and we would certainly stay here again.
“a lovely appartment in a lovely location” We stayed in the appartment in San Lorenzo over the christmas period in 2011 - the town of san Lorenzo is in a beautiful location and the appartment itself has wonderful views over the mountains from the front balcony. The appartment has a lovely home from home feeling, with lots of personal touches which made it a really relaxed and comfortable stay. In San Lorenzo the monastery of el escorial is quite awe inspiring and well worth several visits, the christmas full size nativity scenes throughout the centre of the town were also quite something to see and made it a very memorable christmas stay. We also did several walks into the nearby mountains, and to the city of Segovia with it'sancient aquaduct and castle was well worth a visit. A wonderful holiday and a lovely comfortable appartment with lots of helpful information supplied by the owners, i would highly recommend.
“Very good but!” The bungalow by Cala Gran in Cala D'or is in a lovely complex and an ideally located close to the town. The bungalow is as close to the beach as you can get which can be good or bad depending on what you want. The bungalows are close together without being invasive which is perfect. Although there are plenty of steps down from the road and up from the beach. The apartment itself is nicely finished, although certainly not as pristine as the photos suggest and the bathrooms could do with updating. The facilities cover the basics, just about and not much else. Don't expect a welcome pack or a mid week laundry service or a dvd collection or anything but you have everything you need. Just! You're paying handsomely for the location and that's it but it is a pretty impressive location. The swimming pool within the complex is an added bonus but the location is key, close to town and beach. Perfect!
The only reason for the very good rating is the mealy mouthed provisions in the apartment, that could have tipped it into the excellent bracket but it was certainly disappointing.
Would I go back..yes. Is it a good location..yes. Was it worth the money..maybe. Was the €100 plus booking fee justified..no!

“I recommend staying here and have an unforgettable holiday” We occupied this apartment from 06/26/12 to 05/07/12. Fully equipped very comfortable apartments are well located between two beautiful beaches where you can enjoy unforgettable views of sunrises and sunsets. A good impression of this place will always attract us here ...
