About Steve Jenkins & Sue Crabb

We are both nurses, my wife semi-retired and me approaching retirement, children grown up and (nearly!) flown the nest, and wanted an investment to put our energies into, but one with massive benefits for us to enjoy.

Steve Jenkins & Sue Crabb purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Steve Jenkins & Sue Crabb chose Mijas

We chose this property for its location in La Cala and the quality of the complex. When we were away in May 2014 for my birthday, my wife and I spent a good part of the week viewing lots of different properties along the Costa del Sol, all along the coast, but when we visited La Cala de Mijas, instantly fell in love with the town. It was only a matter of time before we found the right property, and on the last day searching, thankfully we viewed the Alamar complex. It ticks all the boxes for us; close to beach, town, golf, pool, beautiful countryside, not too far from the airport, cheap flights, and the building will last for many years!

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment sells itself; large 2 bedrooms, lots of terrace, and only a stroll away from the busy, yet relaxing town and beach of La Cala. There is an extra large terrace to while away the time relaxing/dining/chatting/sunbathing, and all the mod cons to make it a home from home.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you need and has been thoughtfully fitted out to a high standard; it felt like a home away from home for us. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending it to anyone and would definitely stay again. The large balcony is a great space to relax. There was good communication from both the owners and Christine, the property manager, leading up to our stay and Christine met us when we arrived to let us in. The apartment is in a lovely, secure, quiet complex which is 15 minutes walk to the centre of La Cala. There is plenty of parking and a Lidl at the bottom of the road. The only thing which could have perhaps improved our stay would have been an extra set of towels and bed linen as we were staying for 10 days but a very minor niggle. Thanks for a great holiday :)

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a true home from home with quality fixtures and fittings allowing you to get on with a relaxing holiday. It’s location is perfect for those seeking a quiet getaway within walking distance of supermarkets and restaurants and bars. The complex is perfect and not too far from the airport. We even stayed additional nights to maximise the experience and with fabulous walks including the boardwalk allowing you to appreciate the sea views there is plenty to do to keep active. All in all we had a brilliant time and recommend it to everyone. Young family travelling with a 16 year old and 12 year old.

Magnifique appartement !!!

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est vraiment top; 2 belles chambres avec placard, 2sdb avec toilette, une grande cuisine et une énorme terrasse meublée. Nous avons eu une moyenne de 25° et avons nagé dans la mer ;-)L'arrêt de bus se trouve à 300 m et la ligne 220 vous emmène partout et est très facile pour rejoindre Malaga, Fuengirola, Marbella, .....

Le Lidll (50 m) est super bien fournie avec une boucherie indépendante et du pain excellent. La plage (très belle balade à faire) et le village est très familiale avec plaine de jeux pour les enfants et terrain de basket hors heures scolaires. Vous y trouverez aussi tout le necessaire. Je vous conseille vivement cette location car elle est vraiment impeccable et les propriétaires adorables !!!!

La Cala


La Cala de Mijas beach and town are a 10 minute walk away.


Malaga airport is 35km or 21 miles away and Gibraltar is 60 miles. Flight prices are very competitive, especially if booked in advance (look out for the regular sales from Ryanair, Monarch and Easyjet).

Its a straight forward 40 mins by car/taxi. Car hire is not necessary, but you are advised to pre-book. Public transport is plentiful and cheap, and we have found the Train/Bus combination the best option.


La Cala - 10 minute walk

Mijas - 15km

Fuengirola - 10km

Marbella 20km

Gibraltar 98km

Granada 160km

Seville 240km

Tangier, Morocco 197km

Further Details:

There are around 50 restaurants, cafes and bars, of varying prices, catering for all tastes from curries to English breakfasts, Chinese restaurants to tapas, Spanish cuisine and Japanese! we especially love the chiringuita's on the beach for fresh caught and cooked fish. The village has banks, newsagent, supermarkets, internet cafe's and much more.
