About Geckos y Sol

Moved to Alhaurin el Grande in Nov 2013 from Ireland & fell in love with the area.

Geckos y Sol purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Geckos y Sol chose Guadalhorce (Costa del Sol)

This property is in a lovely quiet location with easy access to the communal pool. Perfect for golfers, or for a relaxing family holiday, or to use as a base for further investigations into the province of Malaga with it's many attractions.

What makes this apartment unique

Do as much, or as little as you want, when you want! The views from the balcony and dining area are fantastic! You are less than 10 minutes away from the town of Alhaurin el Grande with has many bars & restaurants as well as a large ex-pat community. The coast at Fuengirola is 15-20 minutes away, and Marbella is only 40 minutes away. The location is perfect for exploring inland Spain, and is much cheaper than staying on the coast, although you can still easily get there! Only 30 minutes from Malaga airport!!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed in the alhaurin golf apartment and were extremely satisfied. We were lucky enough to book this spacious 2 bedroomed apartment to take our two little ones on holiday. Age 5 and 1. Patrick and david were very very helpfull at meeting our requirements for a highchair and travel cot at very short notice. And was always on the other end of the phone if we needed anything.

We were a bit weary about booking as it is in a remote area and a car was required. But it was so worth it. The views are beautifull and it was lovely and peacefull but at the same time a short drive by good roads to all the popular places.

The pool area is stunning the pictures dont do it justice atall. I would high recomend this apartment and if i get my way with the hubby we will be back ;)

Wonderful vacation at Al Haurin Grande (Golf)

  • 5 of 5

The holiday apartment is very comfortable and has all the amenities you could wish for. The air-conditioning is excellent (though not always needed even in the hottest times), hot water is plentiful, the kitchen well equipped and there is a lovely balcony where you can eat your meals and have a spectacular view of the trees, bushes, flowers surrounding the Golf course.

If you are interested in birds, the balcony is a wonderful spot. The pool is a great attraction; it is clean, refreshing and has a lovely waterfall. It is very relaxing. In addition, the Golf Club is near-by where you can have a drink or a meal or play a round of golf.

The property is well maintained and very clean. David and Patrick are extremely helpful and gave us good advice on places to visit, restaurants and things to see. They are excellent hosts. The Wi-Fi and Internet connection is first class. Both Alhaurin El Grande and Coin have excellent restaurants and cafes and there is a wide choice. There are also plenty of supermarkets and the BP garage is always open for any emergency shopping.

The property is well situated for travel. You can get to the airport and the beach in less than 30 minutes, Gibraltar takes an hour and a half, Cordoba two hours by car.

This was the second occasion that we have stayed in the apartment. We really enjoyed it and we can highly recommend it to others.

fab apartment!

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was perfectly situated to reach all the beauty spots and only 15 minutes to the beach. Alhaurin is totally unspoilt by tourism and so are the surrounding villages. Mijas is a must visit !

Only two negatives :

Bath towels need to be larger! &The hot water tends to be more hot than cold!!

Overall....fantastic apartment, great location, lovely pool, great views and David and Patrick were more than helpful!! Thanks

David and Patrick are excellent hosts.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our week's stay in Alhaurin Golf.

David and Patrick we excellent hosts and we have booked again for our next holiday.

The flat is very convinient, clean, bright. It is not far from Alhauring El Grande Centre. It is an interesting place. And just a few minutes away from Coin. You can drive to the beaches and to the airport in less then 30 minutes. We had an excelent holiday.

Regarding the Owners Direct website, this really needs some attention. When we rebooked, both our Saudi and British credit cards were rejected. In fact, Saudi Arabia is not even listed as a choice in the drop down box of countries. Secondly, as we live in Saudi Arabia, our UK credit card accounts have a Saudi postal address and this was unaccetable to the program.

Is it possible to add Saudi Arabia to your list of countries accepted for credit card payment and why is it necessary for a UK issued credit card to have a UK postal address? Please explain.

warm and sunny Alhaurin Golf

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a nice relaxing week in warm and sunny Alhaurin Golf (3 Adults, 2 children - toddler & baby!)

The apartment is set in a nice peaceful location. We availed of the welcome pack and it was ideal and we would recommend it.

The apartment was very clean and well maintained. It is was very spacious and comfortable with the following provided, towels, iron and ironing board, hair dryer, travel cot, high chair, WIFI!! The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice comfortable and spacious with air conditioning and there were also plug in fans available.

Deck chairs are provided for the pool, we enjoyed many hours by the beautiful pool!

The Alhaurin Golf course is definitely a must for any golfer, my brother in law enjoyed a round of golf with the members.

The apartment is just a short transfer from the airport. We did not avail of car hire during our stay but car rental is recommended as the apartment is ideally located if you wish to get out and about take a day trip to Fuengirola or Marbella.

We had a very helpful and obliging taxi driver throughout our stay taking us to and from Alhaurin El Grande, where we enjoyed some lovely meals.

We enjoyed dining in, Casa Paco, la Allegria and locally Los Morenos for lunch.

We hope to have a return visit to Alhaurin Golf, and have recommended it to family and friends.

Thanks to Patrick and David, who were so very helpful prior to and during our stay!!

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

In August we spent two nights in this beautiful apartment. The apartment is fully equipped and clean. Location is very central , but the tranquility yet close to the airport and the coast ( we did have a rental car) . Our kids enjoyed the pool. If there is the situation we will absolutely want to rent the apartment . We recommend the apartment than well. Thanks David and Patrick.

Large well equipped apartment in a beautiful setti

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is spacious ,well equipped and has two bathrooms. It had the added bonus of air conditioning which was a must have as the temperatures were in the high 30s. Wifi ,another must have ,was also available. Alhaurin Golf is a beautiful setting. The gated pool was just a few minutes walk away and we sometimes had the pool to ourselves. No fighting for sun beds as these come with the apartment. We took up the offer of a starter pack so there were a few basics waiting for us. Alhaurin el Grande has lovely bars and restaurants and you can explore the area from here with a very cheap bus service. I would recommend hiring a car as Alhaurin Golf is about 10 minutes from Alhaurin el Grande and can seem a bit isolated.. We used taxis driven by English speaking Juan who was very helpful and very knowledgeable about the area.A lovely holiday was had and I would certainly recommend this apartment.
