Perfectly situated halfway between the Old Town and the Harbour

  • 4 of 5

Estepona is a lovely town and the views from the apartment were stunning. The apartment was very roomy and it was nice to have a separate kitchen. In the kitchen, there was everything you would need and a plentiful stock of crockery and glasses. The bread shop is just round the corner with fresh baguettes available into the evening. There are two supermarkets and a butchers close by and several cafe/tapas bars (even in January!) Lydia, the key holder, knows just about everything, she has lived there for 13 years and her children go to school in the town,

The lovely beach, which is cleaned every day is just across the road. Although we didn't have children with us, there are lots of play areas on the lengthy seafront and climbing frames to entertain them, Estepona seems very child friendly, especially the Italian ice cream cafe in the Old Town!! If you don't have children, there are also lots of adult friendly places! We will certainly be going to Estepona again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of your stay in my apartment. It is really helpful and kind of you to point out nearby facilities and the experience of your stay. As you say, the apartment is ideally situated and my intention was to equip the apartment adequately to make it an easier and restful holiday. It is really relaxing to sit on the balcony, looking out to the beach and sea whilst having your breakfast or lunch in the sunshine. Estepona is a lovely town to visit with many other surrounding towns that their good and cost effective bus service will take you to should you not wish to hire a car. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in my apartment and would welcome you back anytime.

Lovely apartment but a few disappointing points

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was spacious and clean and the view from the balcony was wonderful if you were standing on the balcony. The glass surrounding the balcony was so dirty you could not see the nice view when sitting on the patio chairs. We washed one section of glass which took a lot of washing so it had not been done for some time and we had a lovely view through that piece. We had to clean the patio table and chairs and the clothes drier before we could use them. The patio doors needed cleaning so again when sitting down you could not enjoy the view. I appreciate it is early in the season but if you are letting your apartment out it should be cleaned to a acceptable standard inside and out as the big attraction to the apartment is the location and the view. I think the owner should review her cleaning contract to ensure she doesn't disappoint more guests during the holiday season. Having said all that we enjoyed staying in the apartment and had a lovely time in Esteponia and the surrounding area and the local buses were very good and we ate at some nice restaurants in town and in the marina.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of your stay in my apartment. I am sorry that you were not happy with the cleanliness of the balcony. I agree with you that the view is much clearer through a clean balastrade. Unfortunately, it is windy in the season that you stayed in my apartment which results in a lot of sand and dirt being blown over. As I have found on my visits, this makes it difficult to keep the balcony and glass clear. However, I appreciate you concerns and will endeavour to pay more attention to the cleanliness of the balcony. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in my apartment and visiting Estepona and the surrounding towns. As you say, the local bus service is very good and is an economical way to get around. Perhaps you may wish to visit again to see that your concerns have been met.

Great location

We enjoyed taking part in the evening paseo along the waterfront. Easy walking to the marina or to the old town. Apartment was roomy and bright. Felt safe everywhere.

Neelum's apartment in Estepona is in a perfect location. Down the lift, cross the road and your on the beech, and a few minutes walk from the old town where there are lovely restaurants. Neelum is super fast at responding to messages which was great. Lydia is the point of contact in Estepona who meets you at arrival. Lydia was so helpful and even lent us her own baby bouncer as we were staying with our 11month old daughter. Lydia advised us where to get fresh cooked bread and even organised our return taxi back to Malaga.

We were unable to fault the service/ apartment and would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Estepona.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of your stay in my apartment and Estepona. As you say, my apartment is ideally situated as it is near the old Town in one direction and the marina in the other direction. The lovely view of the sea from the balcony was the selling point for me. Each time I visit Estepona, I discover new areas to visit. Lydia, as you have found is really helpful and has lot of useful information about Estepona. I am glad that you enjoyed your holiday and would welcome you back if you chose to return. Regards, Neelum

Amazing Apartment with great views

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start! What an amazing place to stay, walk out of the apartment and turn left, and you reach the old town with lovely bars and shops. Go to the right, and you get to the beautiful Marina, with lovely places to eat. The beach is wonderful, sunbeds very cheap. Lovely and clean apartment with everything you could imagine that you needed. Lydia was very helpful with her knowledge of the town and places to visit. We took a bus ride to Gibraltar, this is a must visit, wonderful to see the Monkey's and lots of History on the Rock. Will definitely recommend the apartment to family and friends, and hopefully come back again. Its so central to all of your needs. Neelum

dealt with our booking very quickly and answered all of our questions promtley.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. I am happy that you enjoyed your stay in my apartment. As you say, it is ideally situated to access all that Estepona has to offer. Of course, the sea views from the spacious balcony add to the charm of the apartment. If you look to the right, the Rock of Gibraltar can be seen. I agree that a visit to Gibraltar where duty free shopping can be done is a must. Visiting the Rock to see the monkeys is a fun experience. Estepona has a good bus service which is cost effective and gives you the freedom to visit other towns. I am fortunate to have Lydia close by to help when needed. She lives in Estepona, knows the area well and is willing to help as needed. It was a pleasure communicating with you and I would welcome you back if you wish to visit again.
