Luxury 3 bed, 3 bath duplex apartment on exclusive country club with spa complex

Overview

Property

Updated: 12-Nov-2016
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.

We recommend that you hire a car - we offer a 15% discount on car rental via Helle Hollis

'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

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.

Nice place for family holidays

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place, well maintained. Some time has passed since it was built - this can be seen in some spots inside the flat - but didn't influence our very positive picture of the stay. Overall: nice gardens, pools more than you can try out in a week's time. All facilities around beaches, supermarket, nice restaurants in reach of 10 minutes by car (rental car definitely recommended!).

My fellow writers who stayed here before have delivered an accurate description which we can totally confirm!

Thanks to Neil and Greg who cared about us before and during the stay!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for review, always appreciated when someone takes the time to do so. We have a number of plans for the property over the coming year which will make the place stand out even more as a great holiday home and place to spend time. Glad you appreciated the convenience of the wonderful area our home is located in. Thank you for noting like many others that caring about your experience both prior to and during is a key part of what we offer guests. We hope you will join the other guests that stay with us again.

Entspannter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Ende Oktober als Familie mit zwei Kindern im Alter von neun und elf Jahren in der Wohnung und hatten einen sehr schönen und ruhigen Urlaub dort. Die Wohnung ist gut ausgestattet und bietet Platz für bis zu sechs Personen - und Ende Oktober hatten wir die Anlage fast für uns allein. Die Apartmentanlage ist zwar etwas in die Jahre gekommen, an mancher Fassade hat die Witterung genagt, aber sie ist gepflegt und die Pools wurden täglich gereinigt. Ende Oktober hat die Sonne zwar nicht mehr die Kraft, das Wasser deutlich aufzuheizen, aber unsere Kinder hatten dennoch jede Menge Spaß vor allem am kleinen Pool nahe der Wohnung. Das große Apartment bietet zudem mit mehreren Balkons genügend Platz, um sich auch mal zurückzuziehen oder ein Buch zu lesen. Falls es kleine Probleme gibt, (bei uns ging zunächst nicht das Wifi) hilft der nette Verwalter Greg freundlich weiter. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Form mehrerer Supermärkte sind in der nahen Umgebung. Auch der Weg zum Strand ist nicht weit, aber durch die Küstenschnellstraße, die sich durch den ganzen Süden zieht, nicht ganz so einfach zu Fuß zu erreichen. Ich würde darum auf jeden Fall einen Mietwagen empfehlen - auch weil dies Ausflüge deutlich erleichtert. Wir hatten jedenfalls einen sehr entspannten und schönen Urlaub in der Anlage und können die Wohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.

Fantastic apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our stay at this apartment. Fantastic views over looking a golf course and land.Three balconies and a roof terrace so lots of privacy. Lots of pools to choose from and one virtually on your doorstep that is very quiet and relaxing. This was one of the best apartments we had stayed in, it ticked all the boxes and had everything you needed. Very local to everywhere to and great facilities. Thoroughly recommend!!

Location

La Sal

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Gibraltar at 50 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 500 Metres 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.
