Overview

About the property

Excellent location close to pools and clubhouse, beaches within 10 minutes walk

Fantastic fully equipped duplex apartment (non smoking), located on a private country club development close to old Estepona on the New Golden Mile just west of Marbella. Whether it is access to wonderful golf courses, or close vicinity to the beach this is the place to choose. The true jewel of the urbanisation is its clubhouse. The apartment has 3 private terraces, secure underground parking with 7 communal swimming pools set within landscaped gardens. There is hot and cold air conditioning and a security system.

The property is situated between the charming old town of Estepona and the lovely Puerto de La Duquesa, both only about 5km /3 miles away. Cosmopolitan Marbella (great for shopping) and the dazzling Puerto Banus (great for people watching) are only 20min away by car and the lively resorts of Fuengirola and Torremolinos are within easy reach by car, bus or taxi. Children friendly. English resident property manager will meet and greet you.

More about the area: For the more adventurous, you can also take a day trip to Morocco on the fast Ferry from Algercias. Also in the area are several beautiful villages, towns and cites. These include Casares, Ronda, Mijas, Selville and Granada to name but a few. The nearest Mercadona (supermarket) is in Sabinillas, which is approx 1km away. Here you will find just about everything you need at very reasonable prices. There is a lovely restaurant in the Country Club itself which has an excellent menu and is very reasonably priced. About 200m away there are two very nice restaurants, Spanish and Italian. A 5 min drive in either direction will take you to Estepona or Puerto de la Duquesa where you will find numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs etc. Taxis can be ordered through the Country Club reception. Estepona is approx 5km away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We had a great time at the villa, the villa was lovely and the country clubs facilities were very nice, we really enjoyed ourselves' - Helen Marshall

'My family and I had a fantastic holiday staying in Neil's three bedroom apartment on the Costa Galera resort in August 2007. The accommodation was clean and welcoming and well equipped for the five of us. The variety of pools available on the complex meant that you could always find a quite pool if you wanted and the family pool alongside the pool bar was a great place for the kids to make new friends and enjoy themselves safely. I have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other families' - Anne-Marie Walker

Lovely. Clean, spacious and well-equipped.

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 5, including 2 teenagers. We had a wonderful holiday, there was plenty to do nearby, the apartment was a wonderful base for exploring. The owner and manager were helpful and easy to contact. We would happily return to this property.

Owner's Response: Thank you Trisha, it was a pleasure having you stay with us. Nice to see you recognise what a great area it is and how much there is to do on complex and within 15 minutes of the apartment. We always think of our place as a bit of a sanctuary at the end of the day as it is quiet and cool. We look forward to having you stay with us again.

like your own home!

  • 5 of 5

there were every thing you may need for a holiday!

air condition, washing machine, dishwasher, kitchen stuff, loads of towels, cool box, chairs, and many other things that I can not remember.

free parking just in front of the building! swimming pool just few steps away.

Wonderful!

as there was only one pic of one room, I was afraid maybe the other rooms are not good. But all rooms were in a very good condition and separate air condition for each floor.

Well equipped apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed as a family group in January 17. Stair gates and high chair were provided for the toddler, and generally apartment was well equipped for our stay. We needed the heating on during the evenings, and found the inclusive allowance was sufficient to cover this . A car is required to make the most of the area which has plenty to offer in terms of days out. Unfortunately the spa resort was out of action due to flooding during recent storms so we could not used the indoor pool as planned . Only negative was the bedding which needed replacing but we fed this back to owner who intends to address this . Deposit returned in 2 weeks. Overall a good stay for the money.

A Great Week

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great weeks holiday in the early part of September. The apartment suited our family of four (with a 4 and 2 year old) really well. The kitchen was fitted out with all you would need to cook any type of meal and the multiple bathrooms on each level was a great benefit to. The facilities on the complex were well maintained and we made good use of the children's pool at the country club.

There are some great beaches within a 5 minute drive of the apartment, which are clean and child friendly and the sea was warm too. We found some good local restaurants which were family friendly but also had great fresh produce and variety for all.

I would highly recommend this location and apartment for any family. Its clean, well equipped and with a peaceful surrounding.

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

The place is great! Very well maintained. Close to Estepona and other beautiful place for quick day trips such as Ronda, Casares, Benahavis. Several nice beaches close buy to choose from. Neil, the owner is always making sure sure that things go well and that is very much appreciated.

We stayed 6 weeks and will definitely come back on the next opportunity.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We would be delighted to see you and your family return. You were fantastic guests and looked after the place brilliantly. We have changed patio furniture now and put in hotel quality sun loungers too. You will be able to see them on website shortly. I have spent the week getting the online app sorted with key details so it will make everyone's stay even easier both in the apartment and surrounding areas.

Location

Nearest Airport
50 Kilometres
Gibraltar
Car: recommended

Situated less than 500 metres from a local unspoilt secluded beach. If you prefer something more lively, the beautiful beaches of Playa del Cristo, Estepona and La Duquesa are only a

5 min drive. Likewise Sotogrande, Puerto Banus and Marbella are only 10 - 15 minutes away by car.There are several attractions close by to interest the whole family. Selwo Safari Park in Estepona with its animals roaming semi-wild is a great day out as is the Zoo in Fuengirola. There are also 2 Water Parks close by, one in Mijas Costa one in Torremolinos. A great day out is a visit to Gibraltar, (but don't forget your passport) where you can take a tour of 'The Rock' and have close contact with the Apes. For the more adventurous, you can also take a day trip to Morocco on the fast Ferry from Algercias. There are at least 40 golf courses along the coastline. Closest to the apartment are Estepona and Duquesa, both within a 5min drive and reasonably priced. The famous Valderama course is only 15min away.

Other Activities: Spa

Golf: The Costa del Sol is also known as the Costa del Golf, with good reason. There are at least 40 courses along the coastline. Closest to the apartment are Estepona and Duquesa, both within a 5 min drive and reasonably priced. The famous Valderama course is only 15 min away as is San Roque, Marbella, Atalaya, El Paraiso and Sontogrande. A Handicap Certificate is required by most Golf Clubs.

On site there is a golf academy and driving range. Golf clubs are available to hire from the on-site pro shop within the country club itself and a range of green fees are listed at reception for numerous courses located in the area, including the PGA tournament course at Valderama. There is tuition available on the Costa Galera course, for driving and putting, from the 1997 PGA tour coach.

Ski: You can actually ski or snowboard in the resort of Sierra Nevada in the province of Granada which is a 2 hour drive away.
