About Barbara

We bought the apartment a number of years ago when our children were quite young and have had many great holidays at all times of the year. They are now teenagers and they still love their holidays here. It is ideal for all ages.

We spend our time playing golf at the numerous local courses, or on a lazy day its spent by the pool or on the loungers in our garden outside the apartment. The beach is close by and we go for long walks on the coastal walk way. The evenings are spent with a glass of wine on our terrace, watching the stars and enjoying the peace and quiet after a meal at one of the local restaurants or after a barbecue. We also have friends and family who return each year as they love the place as we do. Then when we come home we plan our next visit!

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2011

A really nice, well kept property. We were in the pool every morning and in the sea in the evening. We had a car and parking was always available outside the building. A thoroughly relaxing holiday. Would certainly recommend both the flat and the area. We intend to return!

Recommended for: Age 55+, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children

June 2011.

My 7 years old grandson, my wife and I had a lovely stay in Barbara & Stuart's apartment. On our arrival we were greeted by Barbara's agent, Nicky. He showed me all around the apartment and complex. There is a small comprehensive supermarket about 500metres away however there is a larger supermarket for the big shop.

The apartment is probably one of the best we have stayed in for its extensive inventory. The swimming pool awas a delight and run by pleasant staff. We found the use of a car invaluable.

We had a super holiday and would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Brilliant appartment, lovely complex

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment very easily and it was only a 30 minute drive from Malaga airport.

The apartment is perfect for a family of four, lots of wardrobe & drawer storage and a very well equipped kitchen.

The Miraflores complex is very nice, the pool area for the block is very well maintained with lovely gardens and a small pool bar serving drinks & hot and cold snacks.

We did hire a car but we found nice beach front restaurant's within waling distance so only used the car for day trips out.

We spent most time on Capobina beach, which was clean, spacious, had a gently sloping beach into the sea and was very scenic. We ate at two very nice restaurants in La Cala de Mijas and then at the Garden Bar and Antonios which were walking distance and were on the beach front so we managed to see some lovely sunsets.

Fantastic apartment with everything you could need.

  • 5 of 5

I was staying in this apartment with my mum and two teenage daughters in early April. We were very worried about weather however during our 7 day stay we had only 1 very windy and wet day. Overall apartment is lovely very spacious and bright. It has everything you could need. The biggest surprise was that this apartment had toilet paper, tea, coffee, oil, ketchup, mayo and etc. All necessary things so you don't have to run to shop first thing. We even found beer, wine, crisps. It's probably from previous guests but it was nice that it wasn't all taken after guests left.

Apartment has stunning views to the pool and easy access. As it was early April me and mum didn't even try going to the pool however my daughters did even so water wasn't that warm. We enjoyed our days sunbathing in the garden. Sun is facing garden and pool all day long.

One things you have to be aware that apartment is way up the hill good 10min walk from the main road. So if you don't have a car,as we didn't, be prepared for some exersize.

We have visited 4 restaurant during our stay they were about 20-25min walk however well worth it. You can have nice walk closer to the beach, access and walking paths are very convient an easy to find. El Olivia de cala, Enriques, Meson de Calahonda, Las Llaves. There are some closer restaurants as well. I was following the best reviews on TripAdvisor and wasn't disappointed.

Now shops there is one about 5-7min walk from apartment however everything will cost about 50 cents more than in the shop about 15-20min walk. All shops has bakeries so you can get fresh bread every morning.

Supermercado MAS is the cheapest and has better selection than Supercor and they are one next to each other .

If taxi required it's not too expensive. We used from supermercado Mas to apartment and paid €4.60 euros. Minimum charge is €3.15 and €1.15 for every kilometre.

Owner Barbara was very comymunicative from start to finish and you have local man James who is looking after you if you need any help while staying in there apartment. We had no electricity during first day due to road works, alarm was set off in other apartment because of it and James dealt with it in a very timely manner.

Overall very happy would highly recommend to anyone.

Nice spacious light apartment

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was nice and comfortable , everything we needed was on hand , beds comfy and plenty of spare blankets etc

Shower was nice and powerful, lots of crockery in cupboards.

Easy pick up of keys , once we found the launderette and the man there very helpful even took us to apartment ( followed him in car), as i think it may have taken us ages on our own !!! Milaflores is huge !

Very handy to have the car as without it would have been hard to get to

Overall happy with price and apartment , and good communication with the owners prior to the holiday

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from staying at this lovely apartment. The apartment itself was ideal, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. Air conditioning was great and cooled down the apartment very quickly. Garden terrace was beautiful. Quiet and safe location. It was very clean and well maintained. Barbara emailed all relevant information re the area which was most helpful.

Lovely apartment in beautiful gardens!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and spacious ground floor apartment set in beautifully kept gardens and securely located within gated urbanisation. Very useful detailed instructions/information received from owner. Lovely, quiet and relaxing pool area with bar/food. Lots of sandy beaches nearby, enjoyed Cabopino especially. Probably best to have car to get around.
