We consider this Apartment to be absolutely perfect for Families, Golfers, Sun Lovers, and those in need of Fun & Relaxation, in the coastal hills of the Costa del Sol.

This centrally air-conditioned apartment accommodates up to six people in three bedrooms, all with built in wardrobes, plus two bathrooms.

Other FREE facilities also include a well equipped gym, a sauna, jacuzzi, steam room, tennis courts & paddle tennis, a putting green and a beautiful 9 hole par 3 golf course. The clubhouse offers many different entertainment functions throughout the year for the whole family.

The apartment has a lovely, spacious, double-height living area with fast wireless internet throughout, Smart Amazon Fire TV, large leather sofa, a comfy chair, and 6-person dining table, all of which allows you to relax any time, or entertain your friends indoors.

It is an ideal base for families and friends to explore the inland delights of Andalucía with its Moorish influenced white villages or 'pueblos blancos' such as Mijas, Istán, Ojén, and Casares. Within a 2 hour drive such cities as Granada, Seville, Córdoba and Ronda are also definitely worth visiting. Gibraltar is a great day trip and it is possible to make the short hop over to North Africa by ferry or hydrofoil to Morocco.

If you are seeking an extremely comfortable luxurious penthouse apartment, set in beautiful relaxing surroundings in the hills, with its stunning views, lovely gardens, golf courses, and well equipped clubhouse, all within close access to some of the Costa del Sols beautiful beaches and cities, and perfectly suited to families, friends, golfers, nature lovers and sporting people, then our apartment will offer you all of this, neatly wrapped in a happy "memories for life" box !

Excellent-book it!

  • 5 of 5

Quick acceptance of holiday booking. Easy handover and meeting with property manager. An excellent spacious well appointed and clean apartment Everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. Lovely main balcony with fabulous views. Good wifi. Main pool 30 seconds from property which we had to ourselves most of the time. Grounds and pool very well maintained. 10 minute drive to Eliviria centre and 12 mins to beach - a hire car is a must. Would not hesitate to recommend and will book again.

A really lovely, luxurious appartment

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five, including late teens and early twenties. The apartment is set in the hills with beautiful views, its a gorgeous location, very peaceful. Swimming pool was lovely and we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves most of the time.

Beach is a 10 minute drive away and there are lots of restaurants in nearby Elviria. We tended to visit different places most days, Gibraltar is definitely worth a visit, hire a taxi tour guide and remember its duty free. Mijas is very beautiful you can have dinner whilst looking out at the most magnificent views, sunset is to die for.

Overall a really lovely base for a great holiday.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for us. It was exactly as described, clean and plenty of living space for the six of us. The pool nearest to the apartment was rarely used which meant we felt like it was a private pool.

We were welcomed and met in the main Elviria complex which was great as I dare say we would not have found it easily. You definitely need a hire car as the supermarket is about a 10 minute drive which is fine as it was incredibly peaceful.

A beautiful setting and the whole process was smooth and hassle free. I would really recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday away from the hustle and bustle whilst being close enough of a drive to get to the main parts.

Thank you so much.

Highly recommended, a most enjoyable stay !

  • 5 of 5

Excellent accommodation ! Our initial impression when driving into the resort was being amazed at how the land has been terraced, using massive stone blocks positioned on top of one another. Then, when first entering the apartment we were further impressed with the beautiful panoramic views, with the mountain range on one side then moving across to a sea view on the other. The apartment itself is bright, spacious and modern, with marble floors and bathrooms, very tastefully furnished, and a well fitted kitchen that's a good size. We enjoyed the pools, and walking to the clubhouse for a few meals - the staff there are exceptionally friendly. All up, we would highly recommend this penthouse to anyone.

Gorgeous Penthouse & Complex

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful penthouse, which had everything we needed. It was very clean and Keith the agent who welcomed us answered all our questions and was very helpful. The views were amazing and I would highly recommend the one restaurant overlooking the Golf Course called The Clubhouse. The food was gorgeous and the staff lovely, they even catered for Gluten Free. We went in June and it was perfect, very quiet and most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. There are four lovely pools to choose from too. We had free use of the gym, Jacuzzi and golf course (we only had to hire the golf clubs which was approx. 10 euros). There is a supermarket called SuperSol which was 10 minutes drive down the mountain, we also found a Lidl close by which was much much cheaper than SuperSol. We were about 30 minutes drive from Puerto Banus, which was lively and full of restaurants and beautiful beaches. Nikki beach was only 10 minutes drive from our penthouse too. I would highly recommend this place if you would like a relaxing holiday. I just want to mention that the drive is high up the mountain road (approx. 7km up), beautiful views if you are not scared of heights ;-) Well worth the careful drive up and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

From the Owner

Very close to the beautiful beaches and night life of Marbella and Puerto Banus, and yet hidden in the hills overlooking golf courses and the Mediterranean coastline, this was an oasis of comfort and tranquillity on the Cost del Sol. All the necessary comforts and amenities are at our finger tips, we simply HAD to buy this lovely Duplex Penthouse Apartment and as a family, we spend as much time as possible here ! .... after all, the flights from the UK cost us less than the taxi ride from home to Heathrow !

Your apartment is located in the hills above Elviria, near Marbella, Costa de Sol. Elviria is a friendly small community, fast developing as one of the most prestigious addresses in the Marbella area, and only 30 mins from the airport ! Visit the Old Town of Marbella (approx 10 kms) & enjoy a meal or drink, in famous Orange Square which is only 20 minutes drive away from the apartment.

Visit Granada to see the Alhambra Palace which is a famous fortress & monument of Arabic architecture. Visit Sevilla, Ronda, Córdoba, Puerto Bánus, Jerez or Cádiz to name just a few.

Andalucía is a huge region of Spain with a little of everything, from towering mountains to sandy beaches, true desert, to lush wetland, and picturesque villages to historic cities. Whether you want to get away from it all, or be in the centre of the things, there´s somewhere to suit everyone here!

Shopping excursions to Gibraltar or City of Málaga. Visit Tarifa the windiest place in Spain for lots of activities including wind & sea-surfing & many different water sports to enjoy. Visit typical white Andalucian villages of Mijas Pueblo or Nerja and many, many others.

There are around 10 golf courses very close by for example: La Cala Golf which is only 5 minutes drive away, where you will find 3 X 18 golf courses, Greenlife Golf set in the Elviria Hills, Santa Maria & Santa Clara golf courses & the famous Marbella Golf & Country Club.

Elviria beach is about 7 kms drive or 10+ minutes by car. The famous Nikki Beach is next to Elviria beach which is around 8 kms from the apartment.

Also there are easy excursions to Tangiers in Morocco by ferry from Algerciras or Tarrifa (crossing time is about 35 minutes).

Ski: The Sierra Navada Mountains in Granada are only 1.5 hours drive away. It is possible to be on the beach in the morning & be skiing the slopes in the afternoon during some months of the year.

The old town of Marbella is absolutely charming. The streets are narrow and cobbled, with chic boutiques and local cafés side by side. At the heart of the Old Town known as 'El Casco Antiguo' lies the Orange Square, which is also where the tourist office is ready to give you maps and information. Cross the road from the Alameda Park fountain and walk through the Orange Square past the old castle wall and into the impressive Cathedral. The Old Town is perfect for shopping and relaxing in the many cafés, restaurants and bars. This was the only shopping centre in Marbella 10 years ago before El Corte Inglés and the ultra modern La Cañada shopping centre arrived. You will find real hand made clothing and jewellery in the boutiques around the Old Town.
