About Steven Holley

Hello, my name is Steven Holley. I co-own the apartment with my wife, sister and brother in law. We are fully licenced with the Spanish Tourist office to rent our apartment.

We feel very fortunate to own this second home in one of Spains most stunning coastlines. We have welcomed guests from all over the UK and Europe and Australia. Many of our guests have returned to stay year on year some are now into their seventh year.

We have been asked many times, why did we choose this resort ? Riveiera del Sol is a small resort. however, it manages to cater for everything we look for when on holiday. All the facilities one will need when away on holiday. Good restaurants, a few small bars, a nice beach, and good transport routes for excursions. We are ideally placed for the popular resorts of Marbella and Fuengirolla.

If you have any questions then please, either call or email, we are happy to talk to you about the apartment, the resort and of course about the Costa del Sol and what it offers to holiday makers or business people alike.

Steven Holley purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Steven Holley chose Sitio de Calahonda

We purchased in this area of Spain because of the year round warm climate An average of 327 sunny days a year make this an ideal year round holiday destination.

The apartment is located in the small friendly resort of Riviera del Sol. We are situated in an residential area so things are very quiet and peaceful. The beauty of our location is that you can tailor your stay to enjoy peace and quiet, or if you'd rather, you can enjoy all the excitement the towns of Marbella and Fuengirolla ( 8 & 15 km away) have to offer.

For golf enthusiasts we are next to the world famous Miraflores golf course. There are over 30 golf courses to choose from. Every course offers a unique test of golf. We are happy to offer recommendations as what we regard as the best courses to play.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment complex has it's own pool set in stunning botanical gardens. Many apartment complexes whilst attractive, do not have pools and gardens for guests to enjoy (the apartment overlooks the pool). We now offer guests FREE hi speed internet access.

We have on site secure parking. The apartment has it's own designated undercover parking space. A car is not essential but it does help you get out and about to explore this wonderful part of Spain.

Towels are provided as is a change of linen should you require it. To assist you further we have a property management company on 24 hour call should any problems arise with the apartment.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our third, possibly fourth review of this property and for our seventh stay at this lovely apartment. Our second home. Not much more to say other than we love coming here. The apartment is just wonderful. Clean, great location, price, all fantastic.

A great holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on 2 October 2017 to find all the facilities at the apartment we needed. The apartment was very clean and secure. The underground car park and lift facility were a welcome bonus, particularly when carrying suitcases and supermarket shopping.

The apartment was very convenient not only for Cala de Mijas, but for Fuengirola, Marbella and Estepona.

The apartment was very well presented and we would have no hesitation in revisiting or recommending this stay. We would point out that a car is necessary.

What a great place for a holiday!

  • 5 of 5

When we first made inquiries the owner was quick to reply and very helpful. He phoned to ensure that we had received all of the information and the written instructions how to access the property were clear and easy to follow. The on site dedicated parking made life easy and the apartment was clean and well up to expectations. The views were as shown in the photos and the pool and gardens easily accessible and well maintained. All in all we had a great time and will seriously consider this apartment again.

This was our second visit to this beautiful apartment. We stayed for 6 weeks and it really felt like our second home. Everything has been thought of and the whole place is immaculately clean, comfortable and cosy. We were especially pleased to see that super fast wifi had been installed since our last visit which made a huge difference. The help given by both Steven, the owner and Carl from the property management company was excellent. We had a problem with the dishwasher which was sorted immediately and a new one was in place in just a couple of days. We had our own car with us which does make exploring this area easier but there is a good bus service at the bottom of the hill and plenty of taxis.

We returned home feeling very relaxed after a great holiday, and would most definitely recommend a stay in this beautiful apartment.
