About Russell Pascoe

I am a Dad of two young girls aged 4 and 1, married to Marianne for 10 years, who loves spending time in the sun. We come to our bolt hole when it is cold and gloomy in the UK and spend time outside in the sunshine, just wish we could spend more time here.

Russell Pascoe purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Russell Pascoe chose Costa de Almeria

We bought here because it was a quieter, more Spanish area than many other holiday homes in nearby. We didn't want to be in Marbella or Malaga because it was too crowded, noisy, racy, glitzy, full of English etc etc, and this area gave us the chance to escape all of that. Around here, you can eat real Tapas if you want, or actually speak Spanish if you want to try. You don't have to drive far to find fish and chips, or English speaking pubs, but importantly ( to us!) you don't have to and can enjoy the real Spain here. We drive in to the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas and drive through the Orange Groves, through the rural Olive Groves, there is real tranquil beauty around here, full of natural countryside, that really distinguishes this area from other parts of Spain.

What makes this apartment unique

-Swimming in the sea.

-Walking to the marina along the promenade.

-Bicycling along the beach.

-Swimming in Almerimar's best pool(!)

-Eating in the town square late on a summer evening.

-Drinking in the town square late on a summer evening.

-Smugly watching the English weather forecast in our lounge.

-Getting in a cool car in the basement car park in the heat summer.

-Looking at the snow caps of the Sierra Nevadas from our sunny lounge.

Marvellous holidays!

  • 4 of 5

Russel thank you for renting your apartment!. We stayed 2 weeks at the end of July 2014.The apartment is beautiful, spacious, very comfortable, very well equipped. The beds are perfect, ideal terraces for dining and sunbathing down at the top of sight. Each room has its own bathroom and it's perfect with three kids! We had a fabulous holiday with beach and swimming pool, the children were delighted to be able to spend their holidays in the water. The residence is gorgeous with beautiful green spaces to run and play, the beach is just in front of the apartment. The residence is very quiet, without noise because a little out of the city center (car necessary to go to marina and supermarket). The swimmingpool is huge and very well monitored. Almerimar is a beautiful resort, restaurants and bars are very cool, life in Spain is very nice! We spent lot of time on the beach because my husband make spearfishing and we ate barbecued fish on the beach... marvellous! We will give your details to our friends for their next vacation! Soory for my english, i'm french .... ;)

Owner's Response: Marianne, Thank you for your kind review. We are proud of our property, and we are exceptionally delighted you enjoyed your stay too. Our property lends itself well to people with children because of all the play areas, for either young ones with the soft play, or older ones with the paddle courts, and everyone loves the pool! Thank you for your kind review, your English is MUCH better than my French! Russell.

Excellence and peace!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our children for two weeks and had a fab time. The apartment offered everything we were promised, it is really spacious and very light, with loads of outside space, which was nice in the evening with the kids in bed. TV gave us English channels, there is a stereo too, but we were happier on the balcony listening to the waves with a glass of wine! We did say there were plates missing and some chipped, when we first arrived but the owner, Russell, got some new ones sent over immediately. They arrived the same day!

The nearest restaurant is minutes away, and there are others scattered close by, but to get in to the marina is better by car, which we did not have. The owner did forewarn us, if we were just sitting by the pool, and eating in, it would not have mattered though. Our kids really enjoyed the kids play area, and I was pleased that the whole place was fenced in, so nobody could just come walking in, I confidently knew where my kids were the whole time. The pool is lovely, and so is the sea just outside the gate, we stayed in the pool because the kids didn't like the sand so much, and because there were life guards so I knew they were being watched the entire time. I think the sea was definitely warmer than the pool though!

I can't think of any real gripes to put here, we had such a nice time.

My only gripe is I had to come home!

Owner's Response: Jane, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Thank you also for saying such nice things. We like the property for all the reasons you do too! I am grateful you told me about the plates - if we don't get told, we just don't know, here in England, that something needs doing. Also, your comment about the car - as I say in my information pack, we would recommend one, but it is not a necessity. Some people just don't want to move from the pool, some people don't want to rent a car overseas, it really is an individual choice, but I appreciate your comments, and glad that you didn't feel you needed one! I think what you say about the pool is so true, we have young children, and we supervise them constantly, but there is a sense of additional security knowing there are lifeguards there too. We also like the gardens around the pool area, the community have spent a lot of time and money making them look nice. Thank you again for your comments, and I look forward to welcoming you again this summer! Kind Regards, Russell.

The distance from the apartment to any facilities was a long way and without a car about an hour and half walk, we check this out prior to arrival and was told although car would be ideal not essential, a car is certainly essential as walking with shopping etc in the heat and with children is not ideal. The apartment was in itself clean, but stated a fully equipt kitchen, all the cup had chips in them, and half the plates where missing, which I feel should be one of the basic things dealt with on a regular basis, the showers did not have a great flow of water, it was stated that the apartment had sky tv, well had a sky box but only worked for the two days out of twelve, not great. Note that prices stated on the website are in pounds sterling, and so are any quotes but asked to pay into a Spanish account thus paying more with conversion rates, so making your holiday more expensive. This was only mentioned when money was due to be paid. Overall area, apartment was ok, pool fantastic, and beach over the road, the restaurant once you got to them were excellent. Owner did answer all e-mails with a response.
