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 & organise cleaning & repairs etc. A brand new kitchen, with all new appliances has been fitted.

Christine Bennett purchased this apartment in 1980

Why Christine Bennett chose Mijas


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

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'.

Wonderful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had 10 super days in Christine's gorgeous apartment. Jaramar II. Everything you could possibly need is there. So well equipped and spotlessly clean!! Supermarkets, bars and restaurants all about 5 mins walk away and some lovely beach side restaurants by walking either over the road bridge or the underpass.

A visit to Mijas Pueblo is a must. What a pretty mountain village, with loads of bars, restaurants, shops and of course the donkey taxis. The views are stunning. Apparantley the bus fare to go there is very cheap but we used the taxis from just at the end of the road, 23 euros each way.

Christine makes booking her apartment so easy. She is so helpful and we would thoroughly recommend.

Clean and modern with well kept grounds

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a month’s stay throughout August. This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment this year totalling over 5 weeks. The first impressions are very good, a clean and modern apartment in beautifully kept grounds. The beach is 5 mins walk and the apartment has two supermarkets nearby plus restaurants and bars within walking distance. All in all I would say it is in the prefect location and we managed a four weeks stay without the need for a car.

The whole booking process was so easy, regular communications from the owner made things really easy. I am defiantly going to stay there again.

Great location in Mijas, Riviera del Sol

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was exactly as described and in a great location close to the beach, shops, restaurants and taxi stance. Apartment was fully equipped and it was great to be able to use the beach towels supplied as this saved valuable packing space. Pool and grass area around it was never busy so was very enjoyable to use. Very quiet development and very secure. Christine the owner was a delight to communicate with and she provided lots of information about the apartment and area prior to our arrival. Sampled a few restaurants and bars within a few minutes walk of the apartment and would highly recommend Karoke night on Sundays at The Bridges. JJ's is another bar we enjoyed and we ate a few times at George's restaurant. There are two supermarkets within walking distance of the apartment and many other bars and restaurants in Calahonda and La Cala all within a short distance of the apartment.

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.

There are 2 beach bars close by which have sun loungers & parasols to hire. There is also a garden bar (ie you walk up steps from the beach & the bar is in a pretty garden area). There are many other beaches area which you can drive to and park nearby. Cabopino (10 mins) has a sandy beach by the port & restaurants nearby.
