Overview

About the property

Penthouse with huge roof terrace, close to bars/restaurants, air con, free wifi

A corner Penthouse with huge roof terrace that gets sun all day. 2 Bedrooms include one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and twin bedroom with separate bathroom. Both bedrooms have blackout shutters for a good night's sleep! In addition to the roof terraces, there are two further large terraces. The main terrace leading off from the lounge has a gas barbecue, dining table and parasol for al fresco dining. The third, large terrace is located off the double bedroom and offers sun in the morning but shade during the heat of the day. This terrace also turns into a cosy area for evening drinks. All terraces have amazing views out to the sea, mountains and over the golf course. Free Air Conditioning is provided in the main living areas and both bedrooms along with ceiling fans. Free Wifi is available throughout. There is a large widescreen TV in the lounge with access to most UK TV channels. The modern kitchen overlooks the lounge area and has dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, oven/hob and large American style fridge/freezer. The Penthouse itself is located in a very secure complex with gated & 24 hour manned security. The complex includes a very large pool area with a pleasant grassed area for sunbathing located close to the penthouse. The pool complex is available from Midday to 8pm June 1st to September 30th. There is a padel tennis court available for the use of guests and rackets & balls are provided in the apartment. The beautiful and popular village of La Cala is a short walk down the hill from the complex. Within easy walking distance are perhaps 50 restaurants of all types, numerous bars and a huge, fantastic beach with golden sand, sunbeds and umbrellas. Limited watersports are available during the peak summer holiday months. The penthouse benefits from being on a hill overlooking the village so although it is walkable back up the hill it is recommended to take one of the numerous taxis in the village which costs just 6 euros (£4.50) back up to the complex gate.

About Phil Ginn

We are a family of 4, living in Scotland and are regular visitors to the Costa del Sol.

Phil Ginn purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Phil Ginn chose Mijas

We have spent several years searching for the right property and location on the Costa del Sol and are delighted with both the location and property. For a family of 4, this Penthouse provides everything we want from a holiday. Lots of places for sunbathing whether that be the roof terrace, pool complex or large sandy beach. Also a huge choice of restaurants and bars of all types within walking distance. Great views from all terraces. Many great golf courses nearby. A very short drive to the busier town of Fuengirola for partying and less than 20 minutes drive to Marbella itself for shopping and entertainment. The village itself is pretty and has everything you need. It is not loud or brash and has no nightclubs, disco bars or high rise hotels but does have a very good selection of bars/restaurants and also evening entertainment in some locations.

What makes this apartment unique

Huge roof terrace gets sun all day. Amazing, panoramic views. Walking distance to lots of bars & restaurants.

10 amazing days

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back from this lovely townhouse situated quite high up on the outskirts of La Cala.

I have stayed in the area many times over the years but the first time in La Cala itself. The Townhouse is set on 2 living floors and a roof terrace. On the ground floor is a really well equipped kitchen with Bosch appliances, a large WC and a nice sized lounge with comfortable leather sofas and a large flat screen TV. There is also a table that will seat 4 easily. There are doors to a lovely balcony with superb views over the Mountains, La Cala and the sea, A dining table and 6 chairs make this a great Al Fresco space, there is also a large gas barbecue and a big parasol. There are steps from here leading to a large roof terrace with 4 sun beds and this really is a great pace to sunbathe as it gets the sun all day.

Downstairs are the 2 bedrooms and the 2 bathrooms, the smaller bedroom has 2 single beds and lots of wardrobe space, the main bedroom with en-suite has a large bed, again lots of wardrobe space (lots of hangers too!) and doors leading out to a lovely balcony with similar views as above and a great seating area where we spent a lot of time.

The Pool is situated very close by and is large and very peaceful. Even though we went in school holiday time it was very very quiet there and it didn't feel like we were there during peak holiday time.

The urbanisation is set on a steep road, hence the stunning views and as has been said, the walk down to La Cala is easy, the walk back!!!!!! Phew! We actually drove down to the bottom of the hill and parked in a small free carpark next to Lidl's and walked into town and then just used the car to get back up the hill. Worked really well for us.

La Cala is a beautiful small town with a great beach, narrow streets and plenty of places to eat and drink. We purposefully avoid anything British and although plenty of Brits use the area it is still very much a Spanish residency and all the better for it. If you want the British experience there is an Irish bar and restaurant next to a place called El Gusto which seemed very popular with Brits but the rest is very Spanish and there is a superb selection of Tapas and traditional Spanish restaurants. Our favourites are Tikus, Boca Arte both Tapas bars and Los Porches which is just to the right of the BP garage and is just fantastic.

Would we return? Absolutely, back in June next year hopefully. It really is a wonderful place to stay. Thanks Phil

Modern and well equipped three floor apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable bedrooms with shutters which can make them as dark as you like. The patio which led from the master bedroom was ideal for sun worshipers and also had a shaded area for those who prefer that. Superb views from all 3 floors. Good rooftop sun terrace. We made good use of the BBQ and there are plenty of television channels to choose from. It's gated complex and the apartment has deadbolts on door and a safe which made it feel very secure. A good cooker, lots of hot water and a big fridge/freezer made the small kitchen enough to satisfy 4 adults for breakfast, barbecues and snacks. We didn't hear any noise at night time.

It is a bit of a trek uphill from the nearest supermarket and, obviously, from the beach or the main restaurant/bar area but we knew that before we went and had been advised to make use of the taxis. The pool wasn't open when we were there which was a pity as it was so hot and the pool area, which was right opposite the apartment looked lovely.

La Cala is a lovely little town with a good beach and many restaurants. We would recommend Biddy Mulligans and El Gusto, completely different type of places but both very good.

All in all I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends or family.

Excellent - very clean home from home

  • 4 of 5

Excellent property - you can’t blame the owners for the weather but with dvds / books & more supplied there was still something to do

Would definitely recommend the property but not for those without transport ( however taxis are cheap )

Owner's Response: Hi Brian Glad you liked the property, thanks for the review. It’s a shame about the weather, it’s been strange so far this year. A big part of the appeal is the three large sun terraces which unfortunately you can’t make much use of when it’s raining! Hope you get to come back when it’s hot & sunny. Regards Phil

Great location, well appointed, very comfortable for two couples

  • 5 of 5

The property is on the hill above Mijas, with great views of the sea and the mountains. It is easy to get to the beach, shopping is nearby and it is easy to make a day trip (bus and train) to Málaga.

Well equipped property, fantastic views.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here in July 2017 with my husband and two sons.

Excellent service from the owner and his property managers Wendy and Sammy from initial booking, arrival procedure, support during our stay to our departure. Phil the owner has taken time to ensure you have everything you need. Kitchen clean andwell equipped . Two bathrooms on the lower floor with the bedrooms, with an additional toilet adjacent to the living room. All patios had fantastic views of the golf course and sea. It is located in a secure gated community and is a short downhill walk to the nearest supermarket (Lidl). The resort itself is a further twenty minute walk. We used the car but I would suggest a taxi. Cala de mijas is a lovely resort with a beautiful beach and a good selection of restaurants.

The apartment did have WiFi but it was slow at times .

All main rooms have Aircon and ceiling fans. The main bed was a king-size but me and husband struggled as it was memory foam which we weren't used to.

However we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Nice Property and good Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 Weeks in this property and we enjoyed our stay greatly. The property was very well maintained and fully equipped with all the necessary and modern items that make a holiday easy end enjoyable.

Phil is a very nice and easy person to deal with and he always replies to emails so we will definitely be re-booking in the future.
