We had a great holiday with our 20 month old daughter. The apartment was located on a lovely complex that was very well maintained. A car is required to explore the area and also makes getting to the beach easier. We generally went to playa del cristo most days and found it to be the best beach in the area, some of the other beaches had already closed up for the year. You can still access them but not all the facilities are open. I would also recommend getting into the hills behind the main resorts to experience more of the real Spain. We would definitely come back in the future. The weather varied between 23 - 26 every day with no rain, perfect for us. Next time we will fly into Malaga as we had delays at Gib due to high winds on the way home (we actually ended up gettig a bus to malaga as the plane was diverted).
We spend 2 weeks in Andalusia with our children aged 11 and 14. Diana and Peter's flat is in a nice complex, surrounded by lovely gardens, a beautiful pool (supervised by a lifeguard), nearby beaches (Casares del Sol, Estepona...) but also the Sierra Nevada. We found the location was ideal both for relaxing and sightseeing. We highly recommend to visit Ronda, Casares, the white villages in the Sierra Nevada and Gibraltar. We also visited Grenada and Cordoba, even though it's a 2 hours drive from Casares del Sol, it is more than worth it!
The flat is of good size, well decorated, with nice views over the mountains and the sea from the patio. It has everything you need : air conditioning, washing machine, dish washer, TV., DVD ... It's also of easy access to the pool. Diana was very helpful and always available for us! Booking is very easy and as I said, any questions, just contact Diana and Peter! We highly recommend this property!
Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement. Il est très bien équipé et bien situé, que vous vouliez découvrir l'Andalousie ou simplement vous relaxer autour de la piscine ou au bord des plages alentours. Depuis Casares del Sol, vous pouvez visiter Estepona, Ronda, Casares, les villages blancs dans la montagne, Gibraltar... A 2 heures de route, il y a aussi Grenade et Cordoue qui valent vraiment le déplacement! L'appartement en lui-même est agréable. Il est au rez-de-chaussée, dans un complexe calme et entouré de beaux jardins. La piscine est surveillée et les plages sont à 2/3 minutes en voiture. Depuis le patio, vous avez vue sur les jardins, la piscine, la montagne et la mer au fond. C'est très facile de réserver et si vous avez des questions ou des hésitations, vous pouvez contacter Diana et Peter. Ils nous ont toujours répondu très rapidement et efficacement. Bon séjour en Espagne! Isaline August 2016
We stayed at the apartment for two weeks with our 6 and 10 year old children and had a very enjoyable stay. The kitchen is very well equipped, the bedrooms are a good size with comfortable mattresses, plenty of storage (and hangers!). The apartment is very nicely decorated with a large balcony/terrace overlooking the gardens and pool. We were unable to access any TV channels, which would have been nice for the occasional hour when the children needed a rest from the pool, there is wifi access (albeit somewhat intermittent). It was a few days before we thought of making use of the underground car park and were glad we did, so much nicer than getting into a boiling hot car, and convenient to use the lift (it's only 1 floor but handy when you have a lot to carry).
The complex is well looked after, lovely landscaped garden to walk through to the large pool with fabulous mountain views on one side and sea views to the other. There were a mixture of nationalities when we visited, both owners and rental guests, we found everyone very friendly.
You really do need a car here, there are at least three supermarkets within 10 mins drive, it's less than 10 mins to Duquesa which has loads of restaurants serving pretty much every type of food you could ask for, approx. 5 mins drive to Sabinillas, which again has a plenty of restaurants (we highly recommend the Argentinian). There are so many great places to visit, but one of our favourites was a visit to Mijas (45 mins drive) , an incredibly pretty mountain village with stunning views and some lovely shops and restaurants, the children absolutely loved riding around the town on donkeys!
All in all a great apartment, well situated and perfect for families.
We travelled as a family, my husband, older teen son & myself.
Booking :-Having started off on an unusual footing of being asked to pay direct, I'd already paid via the OwnersDirect site, & that the credit card charge would come off the deposit? (I'd paid by debit card) I then received instructions that the key to the property were in a key safe, the number for this wasn't passed until the day we arrived (which was ok, but a crossed message regarding them not having my mobile 'phone number when all of my details were on the initial request sheet was a little concerning).
Property:- was ok, when we finally got in, via the service manager, the following day.
We arrived at the time we stated on a message also asking for the key safe number, security man wasn't aware of our details but did locate security fob & showed us to the property (a very large complex, difficult to find without assistance). For the following hour, we tried & failed to open the key safe to enable access to the property. Site Security couldn't assist us with this. We contacted Mrs Knight, the owner, via mobile & landline numbers but to no avail during that first hour.
This was our first holiday to this part of Spain, we didn't know our way around at all. We drove to the nearest largest town to locate some wifi & start looking at options.
After a day of travel, 38° & hadn't eaten since lunch, we were all a little frazzled.
Over 90 minutes later, having sent text messages explaining our issue, we were also concerned as to where we would sleep that night. 1 HR &40 mins after my first contact explaining the issue, a text came through suggesting I try a different key pad number! Having explained via text that we were not returning to just try another, not even similar number & requested that she arranged someone to meet us there, all I then received was a further text message suggesting that we hadn't used the keypad properly! I then asked for her to call me. I received a call back 10 minutes later, this was now 1855, just short of 2 hours after arriving at the property. We were not happy!
We have rented accom across the world, this was the first time we had rented from another Brit when in Europe. ALL other bookings (we are well travelled) we have been met by someone.
On this occasion the owners system failed but sadly, they were very unhelpful & have continued to be. No apology, all rather selfishly about them!
No refund of 1 night 'rental' or our required hotel costs.
I guess the title says it all. We normally go on holiday earlier in the year but due to family commitments we couldn't. So when the chance came we decided to return to place we know and like very much.
We were not disappointed .I can recommend this accommodation if your looking for a base to explore Andalucía. Even after a good day out it was a pleasure to return to the apartment.
It was a shock at arriving with 2 small children in the apartment, how dirty and improper was its shape. We had to start with a total cleaning took several hours even the refrigerator, the cutleries, and bathrooms…etc. The internet was not worth for using as it was cancelled in every minute and the tv satellite card did not work…Internet and TV would not be a huge issue however it was promoted as part of the package.
Finally we were not allowed to leave the keys in the apartment but we had to post it back to the owner on our cost and time after the holiday.
But what was the most disappointing that we had to ask several times the owner to send our deposit money back…!!! It took us almost 2 months to have it back but was reduced by a given amount of money based on having a bloodstain on the bath outlet what is a type of towel, nothing more!!!
On the other hand not offering any refund on our wasted time for cleaning and not enjoying our holiday.
It is scandalous and we have never met a situation like this before.
We have been several times for weeks in Andalusia and we love it very much, but I clearly would not recommend this apartment to be stayed.
