About Sandie Khan

I live in England with my new husband and son. I love spending time in Spain as I feel so at home with its people and culture - a place in which to relax and unwind. The apartment is a wonderfully relaxing refuge - home from home. However, its location means that it is easy to discover other parts of Spain within a comfortable timeframe; e.g. the drive to Granada takes about three hours, as does the drive to Cordoba. Seville is approximately two hours away. There are lovely Spanish towns to visit, just a short drive away, such as Benahavis, Manilva, Casares, Cartama and Pizarra.

Sandie Khan purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Sandie Khan chose West Costa del Sol

The property was purchased in 2004. In fact we had rented the apartment for several years from the previous owner and felt at home straight away.

Although Puerto Banus boasts beautiful beaches, wonderful restaurants and bars - not forgetting the nightlife - and has something to suit all ages, you don't have to travel very far inland or further along the coast to find unspoilt villages and incredible scenery. A visit to Ronda is not to be missed; nor is a trip into the hills to visit Competa.

Puerto Banus is just 35 minutes from Malaga airport and Malaga itself is an interesting city. For art lovers there is the Picasso Museum;for those who like to hike and explore there is Antequerra, Three Dolmens, El Chorro Gorge and Bobastro and Torqal de Antequera, to name just a few areas of interest. Granada and Cordoba are an easy drive away with all the history and culture that those beautiful cities have to offer.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in an enviable location. It is just a two- minute walk through beautifully maintained gardens to the beach; and the Port itself is less than a ten minute walk away. The property is in easy walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants. However, although the apartment is so near to so much that is going on it is still a haven of tranquillity.

For those with a car there is secure underground parking, with a lift up to the apartment.

The development has two swimming pools. There is also 24-hour security.

For golf lovers there are many and varied golf courses from which to choose, just a short drive away.

San Pedro is a short drive away with its colourful Thursday morning market; and Marbella is a 15 minute drive, with its quaint squares and cobbled streets. It boasts wonderful shops and restaurants and a live flamenco bar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Wonderfully relaxing; can't wait to go back!"



April 2014: "We were totally in awe at the wonderful accommodation

and the great surroundings.



Your apartment exceeded our wildest expectations;

we could not take in the amount of space it offered

and the quality of the furnishings etc."





Some of last year's guests are already making enquiries about returning and indeed are - "After such a lovely holiday at your apartment last year we would like to return." This enquiry is dated March 2012.



A rental in August 2012: "Thanks again for all your flexibility, we really enjoyed the apt. Let us know when we can book for next year...!

Great location, super size apartment

  • 5 of 5

Pleasantly surprised at the size of this apartment in a gorgeous location. Underground car park is a great bonus if you have a hired car. Everything you need is in the apartment, fully operational kitchen and washing machine is definitely a god send. Would definitely recommend and would use this apartment again when we come back for a second visit.

Relaxing beautiful apartment !

  • 4 of 5

We were lucky to spend the holiday season in Sandies apartment. The weather was so nice, that we could take our meals on the big terrace looking to the well kept garden and this in decembre and january! Even when it was windy, could we sit outside, because it is protected. The kitchen is well ecquiped, so it is a pleasure to prepare some meals, because every now and than it's nice to cook with leasure and not to go out for a meal. To the great walk on the beach which we love so much is it only few steps from the apartement. The way to communicate with Sandie is easy and reliable. Sandie, thank your for the possibility to stay at your apartment, we would like to come back. Jana&Wolf

Excellent facilities and prime location for easy access to all facilities in Puerta banuz

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 7 days in this particular apartment and the ambience was superb! The property is equipped with everything anyone could want to make their stay as relaxing and pleasurable as possible. The property is furnished to a high standard and the 3 balconies (2 for bedrooms and one large area with access from lounge) meant you were spoilt for choice!

I had some friends stopover one evening and they were envious of all the incredible space that this apartment gives! The hallway is wide and welcoming and leads off to the kitchen , lounge, barroom and bedrooms. Very well laid out.

I loved being there and will not hesitate to return to this apartment next year. The description on the web site was totally accurate and the owner ahd gone to great lengths to leave clear instructions for all domestic appliances. The apartment block has 24/7 security which gave me a great sense of personal security whilst i was there.

The location of this property is perfect as only 3 minute walk from the wonderful Paseo enabling some great walks.

Amazing apartment in a fantastic location!!

  • 5 of 5

We have holidayed in Puerto Banus many times but this was our first stay in this apartment. We found it bright, spacious and met all of our needs. It is in a perfect location in beautiful surroundings. It is a ten minute walk from Puerto Banus and the beach is a few minutes walk away. I have no hesitation recommending it to friends and will certainly be returning.

Great apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment. Has everything you could need. Comfy beds, spacious lounge, great balconies in gated complex with gorgeous gardens and 2 pools.

Perfect location right next to beach and only 5 minute walk to bars and restaurants.

Sandie the owner is very helpful and sorted the only issue we had which was with the front door lock immediately and with no inconvenience to ourselves

Would highly recommend and will definitely return

Perfect apartment close to the beach

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we received the comprehensive details on how to get into the apartment from Sandie we felt we had chosen the right place to stay. The apartment is on the first floor overlooking the lovely grounds with a pool in close proximity to the apartment and just a short walk away is the beach.

The apartment was furnished extremely well and all the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need to make a meal, although the hob was an experience to understand but we managed it in the end!

The location is very near Puerto Banus - just a short walk away and with many restaurants that catered for all tastes. If you are taking children I would recommend Jack's which has been in the centre for many years and the food is always good.

Tramp bar & restaurant on the beach is open daily until about 7pm, I would recommend the fried whitebait which is amazing.

There are many supermarkets, one very near the apartment Super Col which stocks everything, otherwise you may need to get in a car to go to the larger supermarkets including Aldi & Lidl for good quality fruit & veg.

Constructive criticism - the front door leading into the apartment block has a door that slams so loud that if anyone came in late the whole apartment knew about it. Perhaps the door could have a mechanism added that allows it to close silently?

We took my elderly mother with us on this trip and there was no slip mat for the baths so she was a little apprehensive in taking a shower.

This place is perfect and we are hoping to book again for next year.

Thank you Sandie.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comprehensive and constructive review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in my apartment and I will look forward to welcoming you back. You are quite right about the slip mat and also the front door. I will indeed attend to both issues forthwith.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Malaga at 58 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Algeciras - 45-50 mins drive at 70 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : AP7 and A7 at 5 Kilometres Nearest Beach : 3 minutes' walk through the gardens Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

The beach and beach bars are just a few minutes' walk away. There are many beautiful beaches along the coast no more than a 15 minute drive away - from those that are quiet and off the beaten track to those providing entertainment and water sports. The beach accessed by Andalucia del Mar residents is a family beach and particularly safe for children; yet just a little further along is the Ocean Club for a more sophisticated beach experience.

Travel:

Malaga and Gibraltar airports are 40 minutes away by car. Car hire is recommended (there are so many places to explore) but not essential as local taxi fares are reasonable and the Port and Marina are an easy walk. There are local buses to Marbella, San Pedro et cetera.

Distances:

Marbella is a 10 minute drive and San Pedro 5 to 10 minutes away. The old and beautiful fortress town of Ronda is an hour's drive away. Gibraltar is a 40-minute drive with Algeciras less than an hour's drive away with its port and ferries to Tangiers and Ceuta. Cities such as Cordoba, Seville and Granada are a two-hour plus drive. Just a short drive away into the hills can be found the Malaga lake district, which is a haven of tranquility and stunning scenery.

Further Details:

Puerto Banus is famous for its smart Port and night life, but it also offers family entertainment, including water sports and safe beaches watched over and patrolled by lifeguards. There is an abundance of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. Puerto Banus is a shopper's paradise with many designer shops. There are several supermarkets close by, including the Hipercor within the department store El Corte Ingles. The regular Saturday morning market is held in and around the Bullring. Marbella is a short drive away with its quaint cobbled streets, Orange Square, marina and market place. San Pedro is worth a visit for its fish restaurants, pretty squares and Thursday morning market. El Torcal Park Nature Reserve is known for its unusual limestone rock formations and is located about 30 km north of Málaga city in the direction of Antequera. Ronda is a must to visit at any time of year and holds different festivals throughout the year; but the best known Ronda festival is the 'Feria Goyesca de Pedro Romero' which takes place during the first week of September every year when there is a procession of horse drawn carriages through the streets of Ronda with everyone dressed in 18th century Goyesque costumes. The town of Monda is a typical Spanish town with its white-washed houses clinging to the side of the hill and is only a 25-minute drive from Puerto Banus. For those who enjoy venturing up into the hills the delightful town of Competa is a wonderful day out; the drive is exhilarating and the views are wonderful. Malaga boasts the new Picasso museum, as well as being home to some breathtaking architecture. For those interested in water activities the Torremolinos and Mijas water parks are approx 20 mins' drive away.
