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 area

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.

Excellent clean and very well equip property

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Christine whom was very helpful with local information and approachable. The apartment was in excellent condition, location, great security and a huge porch with each bedroom and the lounge opening up onto it. Lots of extras such as use of buckets spaces beach chairs, pool towels, bathroom products etc. We would definitely stay at this property again if we were to go back to this location.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great 6 night stay at this lovely apartment. The complex is a good size and very secure. It is kept spotlessly tidy. Pool was lovely and warm and quiet (apart from my children).

The apartment is modern and well furnished with a nice big terrace with dining table and sofas. Good sized kitchen with all the appliances you could possibly need and a huge amount of crockery, glasses and cutlery.

Bedrooms very comfy and lots of nice touches such as colouring books and buckets and spaces for the kids.

Fabulous apartment for 4!

  • 5 of 5

We really like La Cala and this was our 6th visit in 5 years but our first stay in this apartment. It really was perfect for us as a party of 4 adults. Very well appointed and well equipped with lovely furniture and a huge balcony. I sometimes suffer when I'm in a different bed but the beds were really comfy. You really do have everything here, two bathrooms, aircon a lovely pool area (pool towels provided) and there were even things in the fridge and oils etc available for guests. If you like to shop at Lidl like us then it's just two minutes down the road. Communication with the owners was great and Christine who met us in the resort was excellent. I really couldn't fault this place and plan to return!!

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

As a young family traveling with a 3 year old it was the perfect place to stay, very easy to find, 20 mins from Malaga airport, the villa was lovely couldn't fault a thing, very clean and had everything we needed and very spacious, having a 3 year old the complex was very secure ;)

We had a Lidl just over from the apartment which was perfect, a huge play park and beach about 10min walk from the villa, bars restaurants also in walking distance, Sue and Steve the owners were very helpful and made it a very smooth stay

Would highly recommend ;)

Fantastic Winter Sun!

  • 5 of 5

A terrific apartment, beautifully decorated and modern. Christine greeted us on the first day (speaks fluent English and Spanish) and was a great help in fixing the internet. La Cala de Mijas is a wonderful beach and town with lots of lovely restaurants. Tried a few times to speak Spanish but so many people here speak English! Also the Liddle down the road is ideal being just a couple of mins walk away.

A very quiet area and we enjoyed a few good days of sunshine and sightseeing.

Thanks Steve and Sue!
