About Anne Cameron

We bought our property in 2006 having fallen in love with La Quinta Hills. We had been visiting the area for a few years and when we looked at La Quinta Hills we decided that was where we wanted to be. Some of the owners live here so that was attractive to us. It is a well run friendly community in a gated complex with 4 shared pools. We can always find a quiet spot at the pools even in high season. Out of school holidays we are often the only people at the pool.The complex is quiet, with lovely gardens and has amazing views to the mountains, sea and golf-course, yet it is a short drive to beaches and the many restaurants in Puerto Banus and San Pedro. We have been out here most months of the year and there is always a good mix of families,young people and retired people like us.

Anne Cameron purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Anne Cameron chose West Costa del Sol

We love the tranquility of La Quinta Hills. It only takes about 10 minutes by car to get to Puerto Banus and San Pedro. There are good restaurants and a supermarket less than 5 minutes away. We can see the hills, the sea and the golf course from our terraces. We can park the car easily near our apartment. The nearest golf Cub is just down the hill.

What makes this apartment unique

Having 4 pools to choose from is great. Out of school holidays there is often no one at the pools. Even when it's busy we can find a sunbed at one of the pools. Being in a gated complex makes it feel more secure. We come here with our grandchildren, our grown up children and retired friends and everybody finds something that they like about it.

Excellent apartment. Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

As a family of 3 we stayed in this lovely apartment for 10 days recently. The location, layout and facilities were as described and more than met our expectations. The apartment was tastefully decorated throughout, with good quality comfortable furniture. It was obvious to us that the owners treat it as their second home, judging by the well equipped kitchen. Cupboards were well stocked, and if we used anything we replaced it before we left. It was clean and very well maintained. We were provided with a change of sheets and towels during our stay. From the point of enquiry onwards the owners provided excellent customer service, and were more than happy to speak or email us prior to our leaving with any questions or information we required. The views from the balconies and roof terrace were stunning. We hired a car for the duration of our stay and would recommend having one, although facilities at the nearby golf resort are in walking distance. There was plenty of choice of restaurants in nearby Benahavis, San Pedro, and Puerto Banus. We have stayed before in the Estepona area but not specifically at La Quinta Hills. We would certainly return to this area, and especially to this property, and would highly recommend.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I both enjoyed our time at La Quinta. The resort is wonderful and relaxing. I am a keen golfer and it was very easy to arrange morning golf at this and neighbouring resorts. If you do arrange golf I'd suggest using Golf In Spain as they offered a very easy booking service and lower prices. The apartment itself overlooks the golf course and is very tranquil. We particularly liked the balcony off the living room where we had our morning breakfast and relaxed at night. The Owners of this apartment are clearly very organised and thoughtful when it comes to their guests. Everything was spotlessly clean when we arrived and there were clear instructions everywhere to tell us how to do things. We also appreciated the fact that there was milk in the fridge so that we could have a cup of tea when we arrived and they even provided a bottle of wine and water. All they ask is that you leave something similar for the next tenants. Another nice touch was the fact that there were basic condiments in the cupboards. In the past we have stayed at apartments where there was absolutely nothing provided and we had to buy everything from scratch. These little touches are what make staying in an Owners apartment so much better than a holiday apartment or hotel. There were also towels and other things provided that you don't always think of when packing. Needless to say these little touches made our stay much easier and more enjoyable. The apartment itself was very comfortable and spacious and we were very sad to leave La Quinta.

Couple of tips for others. If you stay in La Quinta Hills then you can access all the pools. We mInly used the top pool as it is the biggest one. I think there are two others. Also try out the gym and spa at the golf club which we found wonderful. The hotel there is also pretty amazing. If you want to get off site then head to Puerto Banus for some bling or San Pedro for something more local. Either one is a 10 minute drive.

To sum up I would definitely recommend this apartment to others.

peaceful,quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

had a wonderful holiday ..beautiful views of African coast from roof terrace although too hot to sunbathe up here ,but fab for a chilled glass of wine and particularly loved the ability to bbq up here... it was great .Apartment well equipped and had a homely touch.

we would certainly recommend a stay here,

A car is essential and it was so quite but still within 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of puerto banus.

Summer in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 2 week family holiday - great apartment, exactly as described with a lot of home touches. Good support while we were there in arranging an engineer to reset the STB so that we could receive UK channels ( during World Cup/ F1 at Silverstone /Wimbledon finals...!).

Location wise in a great spot re views across the golf course and out to the hills, yet only 5 mins from the main roads and nearest motorway exit, and about 15 mins from Benahavis with its wide range of restaurants

The rooftop area is great for early morning sun ( in fact all day sun although can get v warm up there )

Owners were a pleasure to deal with and arranged a rapid return of the security deposit
