Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great Apartment & good facilities" 4 stars

Had an excellent break at this apartment. We arrived at Malaga Airport in the evening, and the leisurely drive took about an hour, using the toll road.

This is the first time we have had a ground floor apartment with a terrace, and it wont be the last. The apartment had everything we required for a leisurely break and I couldn't fault it. We made full use of the terrace with a couple of bar-b-ques and the days that we spent around the pool, it was never packed and always peaceful. The owners have left a book detailing local attractions and places to go, which proved invaluable, and we visited local markets and beaches using this information.

The apartment is on a hillside so the views from the pools are great. We did have a car which is highly recommended, the local bars and restaurants are between 1 and 3 kilometres away, which in the August heat, would be too far to walk. We would definitely use this apartment again, if we were visiting the area.

amazing family orientated holiday appartment

  • 4 of 5

very enjoyable two weeks, the apartment is well equipped and in a nice quiet location but not far from local beaches and restaurants and local supermarkets but a car is needed.

shared pool and children's pool, which was ideal for my grandson, the complex was gated and made it feel more private and secure.

the apartment was very clean and roomy

myself and my family will defiantly return for another holiday. The owner's were very helpful and nothing was to much trouble to organise.

Perfect week away with family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week at the end of August. It is incredibly clean and has everything you could need. My daughter loved the pool, which was well kept and a perfect size. The kitchen has all you will need and the bedrooms are also large. The block is situated in the hill above La Duquesa. And is only a 10-15 minute walk down to the beach front and port area. We love the port. It has loads of bars and restaurants. Also loads of shops close by. The place really comes to life in the evening. It's also not far from Gibralter if you wish to visit. Or close to other areas. But nicely away from The over populated tourist areas. A handy book is situated in the apartment. Which gives great ideas of things to do and places to go. We will definately be returning again

A great little peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Came to stay in this apartment for a 10 day stay in August 2015.

Such a lovely apartment and location.

We normally go out when we are away but to be honest you had everything you need there we didn't actually venture out in the evening and instead enjoyed the peaceful setting with bbq's.

The apartment was beautifully kept and was perfect for my sun worshipping and my wife relaxing in the shade of the terrace

The pool and apartment were clean and quiet and situated within travelling distance to Gibraltar and other must see attractions such as terifa, the Andalusian horse show in Jerez, Rhonda and the beautiful beaches of Spain. A visit to the chirungito at Los Palma is a must

All in all a beautiful apartment, beautiful location and so relaxing

Would recommend

Phil and family
