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...!



Several guests are returning each year.

Location style and comfort

  • 5 of 5

Lovely large well fitted out apartment. Big comfortable bedrooms and a new kitchen with al the appliances and everything you need to eat in or sit with drinks. The three balconies enable you to sit out in the shade or sun depending upon what you want to do. The grounds are very good with easy access to the paseo and beach along with the two pools on the complex. It looks like a nice mix of people who have owned for a long time or live on the complex. Great location and the underground garage is a bonus so you avoid the parking problems in the area. Despite the two days of rain we had a lovely time exploring old and new haunts. Very efficient service from the owner and an apartment I would recommend to friends. What you see on the web site is what you get.

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.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovely stay at this apartment in Peurto Banus. The whole experience has been tremendous, Sandie has been in contact to ensure our stay was successful. The apartment is a little home from home with lots of facilities you can use. This is a fantastic apartment for the elderly or infirm as a member of our party had reduced mobility and really enjoyed her stay. The pool area was right beneath the apartment and was clean and enjoyable. The location is superb, it is around 10 minutes walk to the port and the bars and restaurants. Also it is within a couple of minutes walk from the beach and ocean club marbella. We enjoyed our stay so much we are already planning on our return. Thank you Sandie, see you soon.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a perfect location. We've stayed in this block of apartments before but this apartment was really spacious and had everything we needed. The location is great; pool area is lovely or the beach is only a 2 minute walk away. Can't recommend enough!

Owner's Response: Thank for your review. I like to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay at my apartment, and have had as much pleasure from their stay as I do. I have tried to create a home from home feel and like to think that guests are comfortable. It is always very helpful to receive feedback not only about the apartment but about the amenities within the complex.

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.

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.
