About Dave

We live in England, My wife and I both took early retirement (50 ish) as we think, time together in later life is more important to us. We don't want to get old and say "we wish we had done that" We have 2 children. 1 has been in the RAF for over 17 years working on the Euro fighter. The other is a bus driver and his favorite song is 'the wheels on the bus go round and round'.

Dave purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Dave chose West Costa del Sol

We thought the apartment was brilliant and fell in love with it first viewing.

It is on the 7th floor with brilliant views. It had to be a corner apartment with the larger size balcony,saw the smaller 'stuck on' balconies and thought they weren't for us.

We fit air con, but rarely needed to use it as the draught can be controlled to keep the apt cool.

The area is just what we wanted. With the local bars and restaurants. It has a good balance of things to do in the area far too many to list. The pool area, for those just wanting to laze about, is the best in the area.

What makes this apartment unique

Hiya Dave 18/7/13

Just want to say your apartment was lovely, in a really good spot for everything, and like u said your pool is probably the best in the area. We had a nice evening in mijas and sampled some tapas and an eventful trip to Gibraltar....the monkeys are really funny .

Any way if we ever go to Benelmadena again i hope we could use your apartment, i have certainly recommended it to our family and friends.



Regards

Tracy

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked through the door it felt like home. Every bit of equipment that you would need was there, we have stayed in many apartments over the years in both Minerva and Jupiter and this was by far the best both for cleanliness and facilities. To sit on the balcony with a cup of tea watching the sun rise every morning (well 24 out of 28 mornings) was wonderful what a start to a day.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to family or friends and hopefully we will be back next year. If you are someone who wants 4/5* hotel service with clean laundry towells every day and maid service then this is not the place for you however if you want brilliant self catering facilities then this is the place for you.

Thanks Dave for everythin

Kind regards

Jayne and Dave Thornton

Great location for Benalmadena, Torremollinos, Furengirola and even Malaga (if you enjoy sunny walks)

Supermarket very close to hand (Mas), along with lots of bars.

Great apartment views all along the coast.

Apartment complex pretty quiet.

Sun lovers delight

  • 5 of 5

Excellent communication, explanation and guidance - nothing is too much for Dave. The apartment is in a best position, you can see the sun from dawn to dusk with amazing views ( winter stay ). The apartment is generously stocked - plenty of everything, roomy and clean, will return and definitely recommend.

Brilliant Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th stay at the Minerva/Jupiter Complex and Daves Apartment was by far the best. Really clean and comfortable, well equipped, fantastic balcony and views with a lovely breeze running through the Apartment. Restaurants and Bars just across the road, Dave was always easy to contact regarding the booking and really helpful. We will be returning next year. Thanks very much.
