3-Storey Townhouse On Small Quiet Community Mijas Costa Malaga Spain



Updated: 06-Oct-2016
House in Calahonda, Costa del Sol, Spain - Peaceful Location - Only 10 Minutes to Bars & Restaurants and the beach is close


On the ground floor after entry to the house there is fully-equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, fridge-freezer, modern hob and oven. It has all the utensils and crockery to ensure that any large family can enjoy staying in and entertaining at home. The ground floor also has a comfortable lounge and dining area, with enough seating to accommodate the whole party, as well as a large flat-screen smart TV, which accesses the internet through the house’s fast Wi-Fi router, and a DVD player. There is also a WC on the ground floor.

On the first floor, you will find 3 double bedrooms. One of the rooms has 2 single beds, whereas the others have large double beds. The master bedroom itself has an en suite bathroom with a powerful shower. There is also a separate large bathroom which is accessible from the other 2 bedrooms. All the bedrooms have built in wardrobes, thereby maximizing space for the guests.

The fourth guest-bedroom is in the coolest part of the house, downstairs from the ground floor, thereby not needing the air-conditioning that is fully available throughout the rest of the house. With an en suite bathroom, this bedroom has the most powerful shower in the house, thanks to its gravity feed.

Access to the double-garage is also downstairs under the house, in the cool. This ensures that when having to get into the car to travel somewhere, it is not boiling hot, not having been parked outside in the warm Andalusian sun, which is something that not many other houses can give.

At the top of the house there is a large solarium, which not only affords great views of the urbanisation and surrounding areas but also ensures the ability to suntan for a full day in complete privacy.

Returning to the ground floor, there is a large patio and barbecue area, where most guests have their meals around the large family-sized table under the sun. A few steps from the garden gate there is a swimming pool, set within a large garden and grassed area. This enables families to utilize the pool from the comfort of the house, or take one of one of the 6 sunbeds that are part of house’s property and lay down within the gardens next to the pool. Being a small urbanisation, the pool area actually feels more like one that is private.

The house is conveniently located near to many amenities. There is a large supermarket, just 5 minutes’ walk away. Another 5 minutes’ away there is a restaurant and shopping complex area, El Zoco, which offers many types of cuisine including Spanish, Argentinian Steak House, Chinese, French, Italian, and even the best fish and chips on the coast! And yet just another 5 minutes away is the beach area, which has a recently built coastal broadwalk, allowing great walks up and down the coastline.

Whilst a car would open up areas further afield for more exploration, with Gibraltar only being about 1-hour’s drive away, the local transport links are very conveniently situated and allow regular quick journeys to Marbella, Fuengirola and Malaga.

Having moved into the house 12 years ago, which was brand new at that time, I loved living in the area and have many fond memories. Obviously the continuing shining sun of the Costa Del Sol helps to always bring a smile to the face. But the location of the house, the convenience of the shops, restaurants, bars and beach, as well as quick access to the larger towns of the area, all add to its appeal. Finally, the urbanisation is such a small and friendly place, that it really is home from home. My friend, Attila, lives on the urbanisation itself, just 3 doors down and he looks after the guests from arrival to departure. In this way, any guest has 100% support, if needed, during their stay.

About the Owner

I am a 50-year old teacher, running my own English language school in Moscow. Reliable and open, I always strive to ensure my guests have a wonderful experience on their holiday. Although I don't live in Spain, I have close friends who look after the house as they live just 3 doors down from the house, and this enables me to have an almost physical presence. This means that no request is too insignificant and all my guests can be sure of a personal touch.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great experience in a multilevel town home. Michael was a gracious host and was easy to communicate with as well as the neighbor Atilla. Clean, spacious home with pool right outside of the back courtyard. Nearby center for restaurants and supermarket. The kids had a wonderful time and parents has a wonderful time.

Delightful house in brilliant setting

  • 5 of 5

No reservations about recommending this excellent property. We stayed for a month and were delighted to discover this well equipped and maintained house met all our requirements , even when family members(2 to 70) joined us. Michael provided excellent directions and information beforehand , Attila was on hand to meet us and provide help throughout our stay without being intrusive.

4 good sized bedrooms with huge wardrobes, lovely bathrooms , a good, equipped kitchen and both terraces were much appreciated as was the attention to detail.( Beach towels for everyone, coffee makers, proper kettle, electric orange juice squeezer etc).

Quiet gated, well cared for location yet 2 mins from large supermarket, friendly pharmacy, newsagent and cash machine. Easy walk to restaurants, more shops, Calypso market on Thursday and Sunday, bus to Marbella or Fuengirola, Boardwalk and beach.

Easy drive on toll road to airport and other destinations. On street parking as well as underground garage.

We used the bus, train from Fuengirola to Malaga and walked regularly and could easily have done without a car.

El Zoco is a maze of restaurants within easy walking distance for dinner. We tried several different cuisines at varying prices . We often enjoyed a pre lunch amble along the boardwalk and ate at La Luna or one of several at the lovely port at Cabo Pino.

Thank you, Michael , we had a wonderful winter break.

fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Property was just like the description, everything home from home, it was very spacious and well presented. The house is close to the local amenities such as supermarkets, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, cafes. Pool area was used every day by all of us. The local restaurants were great, the waiters were very friendly and helpful. The local buses were cheap and every half hour, Fuengirola was about 20min 1 way and Marbella about 30min the other way. Lots of really nice beaches within easy reach.

There was 3 adults and 3 teenagers in our family.

Michael was so helpful and his knowledge of Calahonda was great.

Lovely Town House in a quiet tranquil location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 7 and it was easily big enough for us all. Attila met us at the location and did a full walk around and also made suggestions as where to eat and the beaches to go to. He was also very friendly and helpful and was always on hand to answer any questions. The kitchen is fully serviceable, with all the amenities you need for preparing a meal. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable and sufficient hot water for all of us. The pool was perfect being just outside the back gate and the grandchildren made full use of this facility all day long. The location is good with a supermarket and restaurants within walking distance, 5 minutes drive to the beach at Cabopina as well as restaurants by the port, 15 mins to Mijas, and about 20 mins to Fuengirola. Yes, we would recommend friends and relatives to this property.
