About the property

Beach Front Apartment in Fuengirola, Costa del Sol, Spain - Peaceful Location in Private Gardens, Overlooking the beach. Within Minutes of Restaurants and Shops

Dona Sofia is an exclusive block of apartments at the edge of the bustling town of Fuengirola. It is quiet, while being within a very easy walk of many and varied restaurants, shops and transport. This air conditioned two-bedroomed apartment is on the fourth floor, and is served by lifts. There is a full-time concierge and an English caretaker. The 'Blue-Flag' beach (with water sports, beach beds and brollies for hire) is just a few yards away, as are many restaurants and a children's play park. The sunny balcony has relaxing and dining facilities for four people. The fully equipped kitchen, the modern bathrooms and the spacious living area, with free WiFi and English TV, provide everything you might need, whether for a week or for a long let. The area is ideal at all seasons, with the wonderful soft climate for winter, the excellent beach for summer, the flowers and colours of spring and the ferias of autumn. Water and electricity are included. There is ample parking nearby and our secure underground parking space can be rented at a small cost.

Comfortable and quiet in the perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Great communication and patience from Mike with my booking. Mike also arranged airport pick up and return with Sue who was great to meet and talk to. The apartment was perfect, plenty of room and had everything we needed. A very relaxing 11nights 1 minute from beach. Look forward to making another book as soon as possible.

Property situated in a great spot, close to the coast.

  • 5 of 5

It is a great condo, but for what we paid we felt it needed to be updated. The whole place needs painting.

Chesterfields need to be replaced after years of use.

Mattresses in main bedroom are very soft - need to be replaced. Extra shelf in bathroom is needed.

Kitchen: A set of dishes would be welcomed. It is our understanding that this has been asked for before!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We need to address the points that you have raised: The apartment has been repainted throughout since you left - we are fortunate to have had a very busy few months and the redecoration has been planned for some time: this was the first available opportunity. The matresses are soft but many of our guests like soft mattresses; the lounge furniture was considered in the Autumn but was felt to be entirely appropriate - especially for the busy periods of the year. These items will be looked at again at the end of the Season, as is our practice. All your suggestions regarding plates and other culinary items have been met; it is a shame that these requests were not made earlier in your stay, when their provision would have been of use to you. But no, these requests have not come to our attention before, or they would have been dealt with then - we like our guests to get the most out of their holidays with us. As regards an extra shelf in the bathroom, we shall discuss this with our colleagues and, if felt appropriate it will be provided. Having said all that, our local colleague tells us that you had a great holiday - in spite of the weather! For that we are delighted.

What you see is what you get

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this apartment are very exact.

We did not get to meet Mike & Jill Stammers,the owners but they kept in touch via email with all the info needed.

The apartment was very clean with a glorious sea view.

2 minutes stroll to the beach, 10 to a large supermarket & 20 the centre of Fuengirola.

I would happily recommend it

comfortable apartment, well equipped, great spot.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed 2nd to 9th Nov 2017

Sue collected us from the airport and gave us good information on the area.

The apartment is over the road from the beach and a short stroll to the old town which has a lovely atmosphere and plenty of good eating houses.

The bus and train station take you to many locations efficiently so no real need to hire a car.

The apartment had everything required and more.

grateful for Tea and a cold beer there on our arrival!

Would highly recommend .

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our holiday was really easy, from booking with Mike & Jill, sorting out airport transfers with Sue, who showed us a few places to eat at on our way to the apartment, to sorting out a mobility scooter for myself, which my wife found on the main strip after being let down by another company (Push & Go) who never turned up with one.

The apartment itself was great, very clean with a big comfy sofa & chair and in an ideal location, far enough away from the main areas of the resort, but within very easy walking distance. The WiFi was a massive bonus for us as we use the internet a LOT and it worked perfectly during our stay and the speed of it was great as well.

Would not hesitate to book with Mike & Jill again and highley recommend their apartment.

Many thanks.

Mick & Sheila.
