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 area

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.

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.

Stunning :)

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property exactly as it says. We have visited La Cala several times but never stayed so we knew the exact location. The views are amazing and I was quite happy to just look around from the balconies. The property inside was very comfortable, we stayed with our son and his girlfriend 23/21 and we all had our privacy with having an en suite etc. Arrival was very smooth even though we arrived early! We unpacked then walked down town, as other reviews say it is a pleasant walk down. We did our shopping at the Mercadona ( as we know this supermarket) and they rang us a taxi whilst we was packing our groceries! A taxi varied from 4-6 euros back up, but definitely worth it. The restaurants and bars are fab in La Cala, and the beach is lovely,,,two beds and a parasol costing only €9. A fantastic holiday, would I recommend the apartment, yes defiantly, I already have! Thank you Phil :)

Lovely, affordable with a touch of class

  • 4 of 5

Clean, spacious with all the things you need from home to home.

Wendy and Sammy looked after us and made us feel safe, if needed anything.

Having private access to the pool was perfect especially if you're not one for crowds!

Overall, I would recommend this apartment.

Beautiful... with Spectacular views across the Med

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this beautiful Penthouse Apartment for two weeks in July..On arrival the owner had given us directions from Malaga Airport which were very clear and before we knew it, we had arrived at the apartment in no time and were met by the lovely Sammy who gave us our keys and showed us round.

The apartment itself is laid out beautifully with all your home comforts for a wonderful holiday. As you enter the apartment the kitchen is on your right, overlooking the lounge area, which opens out onto a lovely patio ideal for al fresco dining, we had many a barbeque out there on an evening as the temperature is just lovely in the evening for sitting out with a glass of Sangria! The upper terrace was well used late in the afternoon to relax on the sunbeds after a day at the pool. The pool is just a short stroll from the apartment and is at the top of the private complex where there is a beautiful breeze and amazing 360 panoramic views across to the Sea and Mountains. Both bedrooms are a great size with plenty storage. The patio from the master bedroom was lovely to sit at after a meal out and kids were in bed.

Having never been to Cala De Mijas itself we weren't sure what to expect, but this is a beautiful little town with plenty cafes, restaurants and bars. A real spanish feel and all the staff and locals were lovely and friendly. The beach at Cala De Mijas is lovely with sunbeds for hire for around 5 euros for the day!

Stocking up for the Barbeque is easy as there is two supermarkets directly at the bottom of the hill for all your necessities. So many lovely places to visit around this area and would recommend a trip further inland to Benahavis or Mijas..We also enjoyed a trip to Puerto Banus to see all the famous yachts...

Would highly recommend this property and hope to get booked up for our next trip to the beautiful Costa Del Sol..

Lovely spacious, modern & clean townhouse!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this townhouse for 1 week in May 16, whilst in Spain for a family wedding. We knew the urbanisation well as friends have a townhouse a few doors along from Phil's.

The house. is bright and airy and has a welcoming homely feel. Very well equipped from TV, Wifi, and fully equipped kitchen, not once did I look for a utensil and not find it! Gas BBQ was great and used on several occasions, as was all of the outdoor furniture. Plenty of comfortable patio furniture, sun loungers and parasols. With all day sun on the roof top terrace the parasols were a welcome source of shade at the warmest part of the day, where you can sit and enjoy the uninterrupted views of the ocean, hillside & surrounding golf course until the sun sets. The comfortable king size bed, air-con & ceiling fan also gave for a peaceful nights sleep. We Will certainly come back to this house, and was disappointed it was booked for our July visit to La Cala Mijas this year, so will plan ahead for next year!

Fantastic property with superb views

  • 5 of 5

Fortunate enough to have spent the last 7days in this fantastic property. Home from home and more, only 5 minutes walk from the vibrant resort of La Cala. Restaurants and bars are both affordable and great value for money, lovely child friendly beaches and all just a gentle stroll from the penthouse. The roof terrace was a superb sun trap and many hours were spent topping up our tan. All of this in the middle of April! We could not have received better service from the owners and would recommend this property to anyone interested in a holiday on the Costa del Sol.
