About the Owner

I am retired and live with my wife in Dublin Ireland. We purchased the apartment in 2000 and spend 6/8 weeks in La Perla each year. It is a home from home in a magnificent location, on the beach. We enjoy walking the beach to Sabinillas and Duquesa for morning coffee of evening dinner. We are golf lovers so really enjoy the selection of courses available in the surrounding area and of course the guarantee that you can play in the sunshine, unlike home. We love the apartment and the surrounding area which gives you the best mix of traditional Spanish culture and modern living. We love travel and have been to every continent , but we have yet to find a place to compare with La Perla and Estepona.

Wow - just wow!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time in this wonderful apartment with amazing views. Every finishing touch you could think of has been ticked off. The whole complex feels luxurious and is superbly maintained. We are a family of 4 with two teenage boys who loved the James Bond style entrance gates and garages - as well as reliable wifi! There is access to another pool too which is much bigger than the one pictured - perfect for my morning lengths. Sunbeds and shade were never an issue. A couple of minor domestic issues were dealt with very speedily by Martin who was most helpful throughout. We hired a car but walked into Sabillinas or Port Duquesa most nights and got a cab back. Lots of restaurants to choose from and market stalls to browse. The apartment is well placed for touring around - we enjoyed Mijas and Casares as well as Estepona. We flew into Malaga and out from Gibraltar - both very accessible. I don't think this can beaten for value/quality on this part of the coast and we would love to return one day ...

Fabulous apt with stunning view.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 17 day holiday in La Perla da Bahia, on arrival we found the apt spotless, it's also very large, bright & airy, the beds were very comfy. It's very well equipped. The view was stunning, picture doesn't do it justice it's amazing. We had our two teenage children with us, they had great fun at the pool were they met some friends and loved the beach which is about 2min walk out the gate. We also could walk to sabinallas or Duquesea which was great. Location is perfect, La Perla is a beautiful complex very well kept, beautiful grounds. It's quiet and relaxing. The Wifi was perfect for teenagers. We hired a car and visited some very nice restaurants and towns along the coast. but on nights that we didn't drive we had gorgeous meals in the highly recommended chingruito on the beach just outside the apt. Martin was extremely helpful and his directions and info were perfect. I would certainly recommend this apt, it would suit families or couples of all ages. We certainly will return, I am missing the sun and view already. Thanks for a fab holiday.

Lovely Apartment in relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Spacious apartment in lovely location overlooking the pool with sea view. We stayed for two weeks and enjoyed the restaurants close by on the beach and also in Sabinillas a short walk along the promenade. Very relaxed environment with sun loungers always available around the pool. Supermarkets are a ten minute car ride away for food shopping. Drove from Malaga airport, but Gibralter airport is also an option. Martin the owner is very helpful and always responds promptly with information and advice.

Beautiful Apt. in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from our second holiday to this Apt. in La Perla, and it was even better than we had remembered. We really love this place.

The location overlooking the pools and beach is just stunning and the gated complex is beautifully maintained, while the lantern lit gardens are amazing at night time.

The Apt is very spacious and really has everything provided for your comfort. It is extremely clean and comfortable and has a feel of luxury about it.

The convenience of having two very good beach restaurants a two minute walk away was fantastic and there is a lovely Spanish restaurant a two minute drive away.

There is a lovely walk along the sea front and a visit to the nearby white washed village of Casares is a must.

We have no hesitation in giving this Apt a five star rating and highly recommending the Apt as a fabulous holiday location.

Ps. The owner Martin was most helpful and provided us with lots of useful information which helped to make our holiday even more enjoyable.

A really well equipped apartment. Everything was as described on the advert and we had everything we needed for a great holiday.

The pools and surrounding gardens were beautiful and very well maintained, and the views across the mediterranean towards gibraltar and africa are stunning.

Gibraltar is easily accessible in a car and was a great day out for all the family (just watch out for the apes when the cablecar reaches the top of the rock!)

From the Owner

We purchased the property in 2000 as we were looking for a home in the sun, convenient to all amenities but away from the madding crowd. After spending some time researching various locations we happened upon the La Perla development and were immediately taken by its location and quality of design and finish. The Apt we chose is south west facing so captures the the sun from early afternoon until sunset and has fantastic sea views. There is no more relaxing place than the balcony, watching the sun go down while sipping a glass of wine.
