About the property

Huge 3BR, 2BA flat - Sea views from every room - FREE WiFi, X-Box, Pools

Beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom flat. Every bedroom has seaviews and is very spacious. Two of the bedrooms walk out to the terrace. Something that sets this flat apart from many places in Spain is the peacefulness you'll encounter. You won't hear loud motorcycles buzzing by in the middle of the night nor entire conversations by neighbors. This is a very tranquil, beautiful spot on the coast. Every morning you can hear the birds singing and have your coffee/tea on the terrace with a breathtaking view.

The master bedroom, the 'Japanese Retreat', has an attached bathroom and comes complete with king size bed, wardrobe and flat screen TV in the room. The second bedroom, the 'African Safari', has a queen size bed and walks out to the terrace. The third bedroom, the 'City Escape', has a double bed along with a sofa bed that turns into a double bed. The living room and dining area are completely covered with windows, so the views are amazing. The kitchen and laundry room are towards the back of the flat. The kitchen has granite countertops and is fully equipped. The washer is in its own large room off the kitchen with an open air breeze to allow your clothes to dry throughout the night.

Enjoy complimentary toiletries that we hope will help to make your stay even more comfortable and stress free.

There is a garage spot reserved for your stay and is only a few feet from the elevator that takes you to the flat. There is a nice pool as well as a children's pool and play area that is open to our guests. The entire residential area, including pathway to pool, is handicap accessible.

Our flat is about a five minute drive down to the beach. There are a couple of incredible restaurants that are about 1/2 mile away. Closer to the beach, there are many other options for restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies and shopping areas.

We offer free wireless internet throughout the house and will have the instructions and password waiting at the house for you. Our flat is baby and toddler friendly that includes the following amenities: high chair, toddler table & chairs, crib & bottle warmer. We also have an X-box and games for your enjoyment.

Additional services we offer are airport pickup/dropoff as well as welcome food packs (great for late night arrivals!).

Our flat is our home that we're opening to people like you. We had originally planned to live there, but due to a job opportunity my husband and I had to move back to the U.S. We hope you can enjoy it since we can't! :)

About Jenni Christopher

Jenni grew up in a small American town in Iowa. After graduating high school, she went to college for graphic design and Spanish (random mix, we know). She met the love of her life, Jose, in New York City. Jose grew up in Fuengirola, Spain (lucky guy). We had a beautiful little wedding ceremony in Mijas Costa, of course, where else? Now we're working through the U.S. immigration process (not fun) so Jose can move to the U.S. We both LOVE to travel and we're so happy that we found our wonderful flat so we can go back and visit.

Jenni Christopher purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Jenni Christopher chose Sitio de Calahonda

We settled in this beautiful little part of southern Spain, Calahonda because we fell in love with the beauty of the flat, the undisturbed views (we might be biased, but we have the best views of the coast). It's completely private, unlike many flats in this area. Due to a great job opportunity, Jenni moved back to the U.S. and Jose is working through the U.S. immigration process. So we've decided to rent our home in Spain.

What makes this apartment unique

Our flat has sea views from every bedroom. You can hear the birds singing every morning. It is a wonderful place for families or couples alike. We wouldn't choose any other place to live, because the privacy and tranquillity that our flat has to offer is not to be found anywhere else. Every room is oversized, including the bathrooms. It's not a typical Spanish flat with tiny spaces.

Huge #exotic with themed rooms: Japanese Retreat, African Safari, City Escape. Completely private - enjoy the stunning, undisturbed views of the sea all to yourself. Don't miss out on our one-of-a-kind apartment in Costa del Sol. Complimentary toiletries supplied. Shuttle service available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I (total 8) just came back from a fabulous holiday to Malaga. The hosts Jennie and Jose were absolutely brilliant!!! They were very prompt with all communications and extremely helpful with all our questions and queries. The accommodation was fabulous! Exactly as described and very comfortable and a feel of home - amazing views. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend to all my friends. Sally who helped check us in, etc...was also fantastic and very friendly and helpful. Thank you Jenni, Jose and Sally for really making our holiday memorable.

First off, we can't express enough what a good time we had here. The apartment was clean and the perfect size for our party of eight; which consisted of 4 adults and 4 children (ages ranging from 2 to 9). Aside from the gorgeous pool, there were plenty of activities, to include board and electronic games, to keep the children occupied. We were provided with a high chair and portable crib which was very convenient. The views were absolutely amazing and I could have stayed out on the balcony the entire time!

I do recommend anyone traveling here has their own transportation as the apartment sits up on the side of the mountain. With that being said, the drive is beautiful and relatively easy. We enjoyed Cabopino Beach which is just a short drive down the highway. There are two grocery stores and multiple restaurants close to the apartment. We took day trips to Nerja and Ronda and I highly recommend both places as they were both stunning.

Jenni has been amazing and sent an abundance of information prior to us traveling there, so we already had a plan in mind of things we wanted to do and see. Also, Sally was wonderful and was available to us throughout our entire stay for any questions that should arise. Overall, I think this place is perfect and I am so thankful that we were able to stay here and experience the Costa Del Sol.

The Spanish Olive apartment

  • 5 of 5

The Spanish Olive was a bright, spacious well maintained apartment.

We loved the decor, the views, the lovely designs and themes and all the special little touches which made us feel at home.

Sally, the contact person, is an angel and nothing was too much trouble for her. The apartment was spotlessly clean and fresh, it felt like a 5 star hotel.

We stayed for four weeks and didn't want to leave.

We would certainly recommend this apartment.

Linda and Brian Vandemast.

Well equipped appartment with fantastic sea view

  • 5 of 5

Though we arrived late night (01.00 a. m.) we were received heartily, welcome package included. The unit is located in the hills with natural surroundings (inluding wild pigs with youngsters), a perfect location for those who seek a calm and quiet place for their vacation. I especially liked the view and the high quality of the beds (far above average Spanish standard!) and decoration/ furniture.

If you hire a car (which I would highly recommend) it is a perfect spot to start your day trips since several freeways are easily to reach. Also the beautiful Club del Sol tennis club is quite closed. We enjoyed our stay very much and I would come back any time for another vacation.

Appartement parfait. Vue magnifique

  • 5 of 5

La propriétaire Jenni a été d'une grande gentillesse ainsi que Sally pour l'accueil et la disponibilité. Les chambres sont magnifiques et les lits excellents. Belle terrasse, belle vue sur la mer. Nous avons passé un très bon mois de vacances. On peut tout trouver à proximité : bons restaurants, centres médicaux. Bref une adresse à conseiller vivement. Mériterait une 6ème étoile.

Orange Beach, Al

Stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Spanish Olive. The views were amazing! When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised. We just loved the fun, up to date decor. The condo had everything we needed. It was also very clean. We were glad to find things for our baby like a high chair, baby cot, and plastic kid friendly kitchen items. We loved the pool, baby pool, and playground. The kids had a place to go and burn energy. It was very relaxing to sit by the pool and look out at the gorgeous views. If you want a tranquil, peaceful place to stay that is a short drive to the beach and restaurants, then this is the place for you. The owner was lovely to work with via email and the lady who looked after the condo was so friendly and helpful. If we needed anything she always answered her phone to help. I highly recommend the spanish olive. It is peaceful and quiet, a great place to relax!
