About Christine Bennett

I have done holiday letting (both in Spain & the UK) for over 20 years and believe I do it to a professional standard.

I have many repeat customers which is always very heartening.

I try to equip my apartment on the Costa del Sol with as many 'home comforts' as possible so that my guests will enjoy their holiday. It is also very well equipped for a long winter booking.

I always visit my apartment in June & October each year to 'do a blitz' and sort out any general cleaning issues, replace breakages, crockery etc. My agents (Cariba Sol) have looked after my apartment for 20 years and organise cleaning & repairs etc. A brand new kitchen, with all new appliances was fitted in 2013.

Christine Bennett purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Christine Bennett chose Mijas area


Location is perfect for anyone who doesn't want to hire a car. It is just 5 mins walk to the local beach (either by footbridge or underpass). Bus stops are also nearby (5 mins walk). Regular & cheap buses take you to Fuengirola in one direction or Marbella in the other direction. You can also book coach trips (to Ronda, Gibraltar, Alhambra, Seville, Mijas & many more places) & the pick up point is just 5 mins walk. There is also a train (from Fuengirola) which runs along the coast to Malaga.

There are bars, restaurants, shops, beach bars, entertainment, etc all within easy walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

I am very flexible about start/finish days for your holiday so you can make the most of cheaper midweek flights.

Location is very convenient - hire car not essential.

Air conditioning now installed & is proving very popular (small extra charge applies).

Wifi in apartment (fibre optic)

UK TV channels

2nd bathroom (ie en-suite to 1 of the bedrooms) is also proving popular.

New flat screen TV recently added.

New furniture in lounge & bedrooms.

Brand new kitchen with all new appliances in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Our 3rd visit & we had a great holiday again. We loved the beautiful new kitchen. We'll be back again soon'.

'Another lovely holiday - thanks again. The location is perfect for us as we don't need a hire car. We can walk to everything we need or catch the bus. This year we went on a coach trip to the Alhambra Palace which was fantastic'.

'Your apartment was just as described. All the thoughtful little touches were appreciated. It is so well equipped. I even spotted an umbrella & hot water bottles in the drawer - luckily we didn't need either! The supply of books was useful for poolside reading. Thank you so much - we'll definitely book again'

'This was our third visit. We loved the 2 new bathrooms & the installation of air conditioning. That was a real treat especially as we have to visit in the school summer holidays. We'll be back'.

There is also another apartment that I can recommend on a nearby development (5 mins away). This apartment is also advertised on this website (property ref is S10507).

Towels are just placed directly onto the grass around the pool. (There are several fold up 'beach pads' which can be taken down to the pool area).

Great location, good sized well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a winter stay at the apartment. The weather was perfect which allowed us to have some lovely lunches on the balcony. A great family apartment, close to all the amenities required for an all year round break.

Holiday in Riviera del Sol

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in Riviera del Sol staying in this very clean and tidy apartment. You get exactly what it says on the tin with all the equipment that is needed to help you enjoy your stay. The pool area was very quiet for August and was very clean too.

The supermarket and restaurants etc are only 5 minutes walk away, I would recommend giving Max Beach club a try not cheap but good quality as was La Plaza restaurant another worth a visit. There are many others a few more minutes walk away in Calahonda around El Zocos something for everyone from cheapish Italian to Chinese.

A morning walk along the in the boardwalk to La Cala is a must and on the way back stop at Antonios for breakfast always tasty and good value.

There is a taxi rank just outside the complex which comes in very handy if you need it.

The whole experience was very good from contacting the owner who was very quick to reply to our initial enquiry and any questions that arose later to finding the apartment exactly as we had hoped for. No doubt we would like to return and of course would recommend this apartment to friends and relatives.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for sharing your experience on this forum. It is so helpful for other people who are looking for a holiday rental apartment. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay. You were one of the first people to take advantage of the fibre optic connection which is now in the apartment. Wifi is one of the first questions that people ask about now so I am really pleased that it is now connected. It also gives all the UK channels (+ lots more). I hope you are able to go again another time. Christine Bennett (owner)

Great apartment in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely apartment in a nice development close to.the beach, some shops including 2 supermarkets and restaurants. We stayed as a family with teenagers who enjoyed the pool and being able to walk to.the shops.

Pool.is a nice size and kept clean. The apartment has everything you need for your stay.

It's location near the main coast road is great for visiting other beaches and places of interest. We loved Capobino beach with free parking and beautiful clear water. We also visited Mijas pueblo in the mountains with breathtaking views.

There are quite a few restaurants nearby and we liked mamma nostras for pizzas and try the mixed fried fish and seafood.

Rosie' s bar will.print your boarding passes for free.

All in all nice little place.

Perfect Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 2 week stay in Riviera Del Sol. Jaramar location is perfect for exploring the Costa Del Sol and Marbella district, with a bus service which runs every 30 mins between Fuengirola and Marbella. All amenities are within easy walking distance i.e. Supermarkets, Bar, Restaurants & Taxi. The beach is close-by and has a beautiful boardwalk which runs into

LaCala. We enjoyed walking early morning and evenings.

The apartment is very clean, comfortable and exceptionally well equipped with everything you could possibly require. Situated in a small, gated complex, with beautiful gardens and pool area which is very well maintained on a daily basis.

Communications with the owner Christine Bennett were second to none. Her attention to detail including brochures, direction details and maps which we found to be of great assistance to ourselves.

I highly recommend this apartment which we found to be in a perfect location and great value for money.

Hopefully we too may return at some point in the future.

My third stay in your apartment and it is so clean and comfortable. The type of place that I think about how soon I can come back as I'm leaving! Cannot fault it.
