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...!

Fantastic apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing 10 night stay in Sandie's apartment. It is a very homely place fully equipped with everything you would need. The apartment is very clean and well maintained. We had a very comfortable stay and even though there are a number of apartments on the complex it is very quiet. There were 6 of us in our party and the space the apartment provided meant that we never felt on top of each other. The 3 balconies were an added bonus!! We felt very safe in the complex due to the guards on duty and the security gate to the promenade. The grounds are maintained to a very high standard and there were plenty of sunbeds to use in the gardens. The 2 pools were very clean and never seemed over crowded.

The apartment is in a great location, 2 minutes walk to the beach and 5 minutes walk to harbour which is full of designer shops and fantastic places to eat. There are a few supermarkets nearby that stock everything you would need which meant we ate in for a couple of nights.

Sandie was very helpful throughout the whole booking process and even organised a taxi to the apartment from the airport for us. Once in the apartment there is plenty of helpful information that she provides from instructions on how to use the appliances to things to do in the area.

Puerto Banus itself has some lovely restaurants - Jack's Smokehouse is very family friendly, Belvedere, Piucaro and La Bocana's restaurants serve really lovely food and have great views over the beach/harbour. Would highly recommend taking the catamaran to Marbella.

We had such a lovely time and would highly recommend this property. We are very much looking forward to staying here again.

Fantastic appartment and best location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks at Sandies appartement and it was fantastic. The rooms are more spacious than the pictures show. The bedroms are big with new AC that dont make a sound. The balconies are also big and we had all our meals on the living room balcony. The kitchen is kind of new and worked very well.

The location is also great. 2 minute walk to the beach. 5 minute walk into Puerto Banus and also 5 minute walk to nearest grocery store.

Sandie is very helpfull and a bonus that it came maids and cleaned the appartement after a week.

We would stay here again. Highly recommended.

Perfect apartment, brilliant location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 3 night break at the apartment and found It to be perfectly situated for all our needs. The beach is a 2 minute walk through the gardens and it's only a 10 minute walk to the harbour area , supermarket , restaurants and bars. The apartment is set in some beautifully maintained gardens and it was a pleasure to sit on one of the three balconies and admire the grounds . There were plenty of sun beds for all the residents and the pool was lovely and clean albeit a little bit chilly ! The apartment was very spacious and equipped with all the essentials we needed , towels, hairdryer , iron, wfi and air con and also a well equipped kitchen. The lounge area was very comfortable as were the beds and It felt like a home from home. Thanks Sandie we had a wonderful break and can't wait to come back next year 😊?

Great spacious, well equipped apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located 5 mins walk from the main harbour but loads of bars/restaurants on the way. The beach is a 2 minute walk and is lovely with a beach bar/restaurant.

The apartment is spacious, beautifully decorated and has everything you need. There are 2 pools with sunbeds - we had the pool to ourselves most of the time which was great.

Cant recommend this apartment highly enough and will def be back.

Great apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is huge! and is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Two pools to choose from and 2 mins walk to the beach and supermarket, 5-10mins walk to Puerto banus port with plenty of bars and restaurants. Our taxi to and from the airport was around €75-80 euros but the apartment has underground parking if you have a car. Overall a superb apartment in a great location. We cant wait to return.

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.
