About the Owner

I live in the UK with my husband,Martin.We live by a river and have ducks and a pair of swans (Brian & Brenda) for neighbours. I work in the airline industry,at Heathrow airport.We both enjoy travelling;loving the fact we can spend time in Elviria and its only a few hours away.We enjoy going to other destinations too but Spain will always be close to my heart.My Mum was Spanish and I have great childhood memories of spending days on the beach,enjoying the sunshine.I hope the traits I have picked up from my Mum are the pleasures in looking after other people (probably why I work as cabin crew) and also extending my home to others.There is a saying "Mi casa es su casa" "My home is your home" which sums it up for me.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed a week at this lovely apartment in el mirador Elviria. The apartment literally has everything you could possibly need and more!

We arrived late on the Saturday night and when we got there we were left an overnight hamper which had lots of food and drink essentials aswell as other goodies which was so kind and thoughtful.

There are plenty of pools on the complex and beaches near by aswell as great places to eat and drink.

The apartment was immaculate and had a lovely homely feel to it.

The owner Anita was extremely helpful from when we initially enquired about the apartment right up until our holiday was over.

I will definitely be staying at this apartment again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Lovely Apartmemt - Peaceful & Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I just wanted some chill time by a pool to relax - a big ask in the middle of August during the school holidays. However that's exactly what we got and the majority of the time we had the pool to ourselves which was a real bonus. The apartment was immaculately clean and well equipped and was in a very quiet area. However we didn't have to go far to the beach, restaurants and supermarkets a taxi ride down the hill which cost less than 10 euros between us. It is walkable taking about 20 mins. The owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with and couldn't have been more helpful. The only reason for the 4 stars was the fact that there wasn't a shop nearer but as long as you are organised it is not an issue. I would definitely recommend it to friends and hope to return in the future

Owner's Response: It was also a pleasure corresponding with you, Julie and I felt I got to know you a little bit through our emails. I know how important this holiday was to you and your daughters so I'm really pleased you all managed to relax and enjoy yourselves. I understand that not everyone wants to drive and it's certainly more convenient having a car but, yes, you are right, it would be handy to have a convenience shop nearby. Thank you for your kind comments and I hope you visit again.

Excellent Apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this lovely apartment for the first two weeks of April 2014.

The apartment is very well furnished, including a washing machine, and has views overlooking the countryside and Santa Maria golf course. The television has a number of English channels available including BBC and Sky News (we watched the Commonwealth Games whilst they were on). The air-conditioning was excellent and with temperatures in the 90's, stood the test without issue.

The complex has a number of pools and we had the use of one of the pools all to ourselves for most of the days.

The apartment is a 25 minute stroll downhill to Elviria. I'd recommend jumping in a taxi for the trip back up the hill (around £5).

And lastly a highlight for us was watching the shooting stars from the balcony each evening, accompanied by an extremely reasonably priced Rioja

Wonderful apartment + beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This was a holiday we had been looking forward to for a long time, our first as a family. As we have 2 Children under 7 I wanted somewhere close to beaches, with great pools and local amenities. I wasn't disappointed.

The apartment was wonderful, it was spotlessly clean throughout and the surrounding grounds and pools were beautiful and well maintained. The apartment provided us with a real home from home with everything a family could need to enjoy a relaxing holiday.

We hired a car on the advice of Anita the owner and due to the position of the apartment I would also recommend this. The apartment is up into the hills of elviria with fantastic views of the golf course. The journey into the town or Beach is walkable, but not for young children. (Some adults would struggle).

Beaches, shops and restaurants are a few minutes drive away and there is a great selection. We particully like the beach house restaurant which has live music (pricey though and need to book) and Le perla Blanca which is right on the beach.

We really had a fantastic holiday and Anita was incredibly helpful from the outset. Answering my many questions and providing great advice.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Louise, for your very kind comments. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your holiday and that you found the apartment clean and comfortable. I knew, from our correspondence, that this was an important holiday for you and your family and I wanted to be as helpful as possible. I usually recommend car hire unless I know that someone doesn't want to drive whilst on holiday. It's important to let guests know the location of the apartment straight from the onset. Having said that it's still walkable down to the shops and restaurants and to the beach (if you enjoy walking, that is!) On my part, you were a pleasure to correspond with and I hope I can offer my apartment to you another time.

A lovely break.

  • 4 of 5

I will begin this review by highly recommending this apartment. On arrival it was very clean with towels/linen and all things required to hand such as spare bed covers if needed (necessary in February)!! There were many useful, but not essential items provided making the place feel homely (decent hair dryer, kitchen utensils and even a phone charger to name a few), which actually make it a lot easier to travel light on future visits.

All email contact with Anita (owner) and all the information she provided in the apartment on arrival has been fantastic. Very informative and any queries/questions I've had have been swiftly answered. The property management company that Anita uses were also very good. All round the customer service has been great. I would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and relatives and will certainly be returning myself in the near future.

I cannot comment on the outdoor facilities (swimming pools etc) as I visited in February and although we had a beautiful, sunny few days, it was not sunbathing weather and so mainly used the apartment for relaxing in.

A genuinely lovely break. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind, positive comments. It really means a lot to me. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your short break; I'm hoping you'll come back for longer next time and be able to use the swimming pools and enjoy the outside space. It's good to know that you found our correspondence useful and that you felt I provided enough information for you. It's one of the things I can provide that's unique. I know there's lots of competition out there, many apartments to choose from and the service I offered hopefully ensured that you had an enjoyable stay and will come back to revisit. Many thanks, once again. Anita

Excellent property!!

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a 10 day holiday with my husband and 3 young boys. The apartment is exactly as described with every attention to detail and everything you could possibly need for a lovely holiday. Its well maintained and clean. It has a good selection of pools which my boys loved and also about a 5 min drive to the beach and the lovely Don Carlos hotel. We were give excellent advice from Anita from the moment we booked and every detail in relation to directions to apartment and collection of keys was spot on. We will definitely be returning and a big thank you to Anita.

From the Owner

Well, there was no question about picking this part of Spain as it was somewhere I already knew and loved. It has such significant, special and happy memories for me. This part of Spain has changed immensely over the years, many aspects for the better and Elviria has become a stylishly developed area, populated with good quality housing. Elviria is only 30/40 minutes by car from Malaga airport, Fuengirola, Marbella and Puerto Banus are all 10/20 minutes away. I'm probably biased, but I do believe Elviria to be a great holiday destination for all age groups.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Just 5/6 minutes drive to the beach, which stretches for miles. A great place to soak up the sun or walk along the vast golden sands. Sun Loungers can be hired. Plenty of beach bars and restaurants to choose from. Good mix of people; friendly and not at all pretentious. Other beaches worth a mention are Cabopino, La Cala, and Nikki which is adjacent to the 5 Star Don Carlos Hotel.


The nearest airport, Malaga, is well served by airlines including British Airways, Easyjet, Monarch and Thomson to mention a few. The airport is 30 km away so around 30/40 minutes drive by car. Buses and taxis are available and there is a train service from the airport to Fuengirola, which is only a short distance away. A pick-up service can be pre arranged using our management company; please enquire. Car hire is recommended to explore the beautiful countryside, historic towns and villages.


Gibraltar is an alternative airport, just 1 hour 30 minutes away. Also a good day out if you fancy some tax free shopping!

Further Details:

There is plenty to do here if you have the inclination and the energy, including tennis, sailing, windsurfing, go-carting, ballooning and mountain biking. I'm exhausted already just typing these! What about keeping the kids amused and entertained (apart from a bucket and spade on the beach)? Well, there is a theme park, aqua park, zoo and a nature centre all for consideration. Why not visit Cabopino? Its only 10 minutes away, a picturesque, charming port with rather nice bars and restaurants and white sandy beaches. Do you fancy a change from the beach? Why not investigate the stunning lakes at El Chorro? About 1 hour away, its the perfect place to take a picnic and enjoy the views.

What about a day of historical culture? Ronda is particularly beautiful with pretty white washed villages. My lovely Mum was born there too! Can't live without a little look round the shops? Look no further: Marbella offers La Canada - a shopping mall with an extensive range of shops including Zara, Zara Home and Mango. There are also many eateries and a large supermarket.

Fancy a bit of people watching? Go to Puerto Banus; also home to El Corte Ingles (a kind of Spanish John Lewis) its a lively port full of luxury yachts, designer boutiques, trendy bars and restaurants. Its the place to be seen!

From the Owner

El Mirador is an attractive complex which has well groomed luscious green grounds.The apartment is set back away from the busy beach zone with views overlooking the tranquil hills and the fantastic Santa Maria Golf Course; however the beach is still within easy reach.This apartment offers peace and quiet whilst still being convenient. I use the benefits of a management company,who keep an eye on the property:dealing with day to day queries,and managing the keys, they also offer other services such as airport pickups etc; based in Elviria so you can have complete peace of mind during your stay. You have a huge choice of properties to choose from; why pick mine? Well, I think the apartment is well priced - its good value for money and it will always be a comfortable home for you to enjoy.
