About Tanya & Simon Stevens

My husband and I live in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, England and have two boys aged 11 years and 7 years. We are both professionals, in our early forties, non-smokers.

We purchased our apartment in 2004 and furnished it to a very high standard as we had no plans to rent it out, however with school commitments making it difficult to use it as much as we had hoped, we took the tough decision to start renting it out a few years ago.

We've always received very positive feedback and have lots of couples and families who come back year after year.

We enjoy eating out, fine wine and all the good things in life. We can recommend some great restaurants.

Why Tanya & Simon Stevens chose West Costa del Sol

We chose the Costa Del Sol for the weather and with parents living there, it meant we were reasonably familiar with the area.

It's just a 2.5 hour flight journey from the UK and then just a 15 minute drive from Malaga Airport to our apartment.

We chose Benalmadena Pueblo as we fell in love with this typical Spanish white village and it's fantastic restaurants. It's also nestled at the foot of the Mijas mountain, another traditional and beautiful village. It's just far enough away from all the hustle and bustle of Benalmadina port and Fuengirola which can be reached by car in 15 mins and Marbella in 25 mins.

Reserva Del Higueron is regarded as one of the finest developments on the Coast. It's surrounded by a lush green oasis of lawn and palm trees with two large oasis swimming pool

What makes this apartment unique

Our property is furnished with style at heart and very comfortably. It has air-con units in both bedrooms and in the living/dining room. The apartment is just a 20 minute drive to Marbella and 25 minutes to Puerto Banus. It's just minutes to Benalmadena, Mijas and Fuengirola.

Great for children during school holidays, there are so many diverse things to do. It's a fairly quiet urbanisation so you never feel like the place is over run with children, even during peak holiday times.

Out of school holiday times it's ideal for all ages of couples looking for a peaceful break away or golfers as it is located within a short drive of a large number of golf courses. All our guests have thoroughly enjoyed their stay and many often return year after year. Please refer to the testimonials on the sit

Guestbook comments from the owner

Steve, Michelle, Josh an Millie - family holiday.

we've used this apartment now for 2 yrs and found it to be well maintained and in an excellent complex, we find it a safe, friendly environment especially as we have 2 young children. We would gladly use the apartment again and would recommend it to anyone. Recommended for: families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway, sightseeing.

Holidaymaker 99, Milton Keynes.

Have now used this holiday apartment twice and have thoroughly enjoyed both holidays. We travelled as a family of four (with 2 difficult to please teenagers) and a fantastic time was had by all.

Found the apartment to be exceptionally clean, well equipped and luxuriously furnished. Pool and the gardens were exceptionally well maintained and it never felt too busy or overcrowded. Thoroughly recommend.

Winter break

  • 5 of 5

We found the owners of this apartment very responsive to all of our queries and the description of the apartment accurate. The apartment was clean and comfortable and well equipped for our month long visit. It is in parts showing signs of age and use. We were there when the weather was extremely cold and although the apartment is designed more for summer use we were able to keep warm by the heating systems available.The position of the apartment meant that we were only able to use the terrace for a short part of the morning because when the sun moved it was too cold to sit out.

The gardens and pool area are lovely and very well maintained.

The location of the apartment suited us well. The development is on a very steep hill and anyone with mobility difficulties would find it extremely difficult to go out for a walk. We had a car which enabled us to get around easily. For those without a car there is a little train which runs to the supermarket, train station,bus stops and the beach.It is brilliant and enables you to travel further afield.It runs every hour until 6-30 pm.and is free to residents of the reserva. Beware that if you miss the last train it is a very steep climb back to the apartment.

Overall it was good value for money.

Stayed in the apartment in August 2016

  • 5 of 5

Very spacious apartment. Two great sizes bedroom and smaller bedroom off the second bedroom which my 9 year old found perfectly adequate. The children loved the two pools which where always very clean. Excellent living area and outside balcony. We loved the little railway that took us either down to the beach or up to the shops.

A really peaceful location but near to plenty of attractions

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was fantastic - very clean and spacious. Very well equipped. The pool area was peaceful and never busy - we went in the school holidays. Car is essential I would say. We had trips to Puerto banus, banalmadeba Marina and old town, both water parks and more. Best of both worlds - peaceful, relaxed environment but so much to do if you choose to. Supermarket is a very short drive. Hotel next door has a great gym and rooftop bar. All in all perfect. And sue who manages the apartment was amazing - delivered a cork screw (an essential) and was immediately on hand when I couldn't work the air con. Highly highly recommended for a relaxed and beautiful break!

A really lovely, spacious, modern and well maintained apartment. Perfect for a family. Picturesque surroundings too. We chose this apartment to stay in whilst we were out for our wedding in Benalmádena. It was perfect. Great location. Far enough away from anything overly touristy yet easily and quickly accessible by car/bus if you want it.

What topped it off was the professional and punctual yet warm and genuine owners. We will definitely return!!

A great big thank you

Mr and Mrs Stephen

Sunny Spain

  • 4 of 5

Quite some time since we had been to Mainland Spain and never before to this area.

Flight from Glasgow around 3 hours and Easyjet outbound and Inbound absolutely painless and on time or ahead of schedule.

Malaga Airport , again very efficient.

The same cannot be said of Budget Car Rental. Fairly big queue but slowed down by their efforts to sell extras to those renting. Also we were delayed as they did not offer the type or equivalent to that ordered and it took a Manager to sort out.

In all we waited about an hour.

The directions given by Tanya to the apartment were spot on and certainly quicker and more accurate than the route my Satnav wanted to take me.

The time from the Airport is around 20 minutes but once at the Apartment you are never aware that an Airport is so close.

The meet and greet was very efficient and the handover done in around 15 minutes.

The apartment was very clean and well presented and a nice touch was a tin of Beer in the Fridge which was gratefully consumed later in the evening along with a Pizza from. Shop at the top of the hill.

I did leave a Beer for the next person.

On that point , the area is hilly and I feel it is essential to have the use of a car white there or else you are going to be getting Taxis everywhere ,even to the Supermarket.

The Complex is extremely well maintained with some remedial work taking place to the Pools and Showers whilst we were there. This did not cause any problem as there was always an alternative.

5 minutes by Car is Benalmadena Peublo which has a beautiful central area with lots of Restuarants the best of which we thought was La Fuente , fabulous traditional Spanish food in a good portion size and excellently cooked and served by some of the most polite and efficient staff we have met. An absolute pleasure to dine there.

The Apartment is also well placed for touring the various towns in the area and you can get to the main coastal road in less than 5 minutes down the hill. This also allows access to larger Supermarkets with a wide array of produce at reasonable costs.

Overall we had a great time . The only downsides were the lack of wifi in the apartment which meant keeping my phone on roaming and also the only programmes you can get on the TV are from DVD's of which there are many in the Apartment.

In fairness that was detailed on the comprehensive information pack supplied by Tanya and Simon.

I would definitely recommend the Apartment on the basis that you have a Car
