I was very disappointed in the Flat My first impressions were it was not a luxury flat it was very tired, the TV did not have instructions on how to work it and the agent did not know either I could not get any British channels at all and as I was only there for less than a week I did not bother. as far as it being quiet that again is stretching the truth to bursting point most of the noise came from the local residents the lady below walked up and down here flat with high heels on every morning at about 7.00 as for the sea view did not exist. On top of all that I was charged an extra £100 for cleaning because I was not staying a full week, this was because of the dates I wanted was not available so I took the six days that were. And yes It did annoy me but that is not the reason for the bad review. The review is honest and accurate.
Lovely holiday! Thank you.
Had another fantastic stay at Philips lovely apartment. Communication with Philip and management team excellent ( even when i kept calling wrong number when we arrived). As previously stayed at the property, we knew where the property was and the facilities it offers, they didn't disappoint. New updated TV is on offer, no issues with connection or with the wi-fi connection for our 11 night stay. All white goods, kitchen utensils in good condition, wanted for nothing in apartment. BBQ on balcony excellent.
There is a great restaurant Rancho Grill within 5 minutes or so walking, and the beach with the beach front walkway from Cabopino all the way to La Cala a short walking distance away. Parking place in the garage is very handy with an elevator to the apartment.
Security at the apartment is really good. Key entrance to the complex, stairwell and to the flat. Full air conditioning and the three double bedrooms more than adequate for our needs. A home from home!!!
As said previously,we have stayed at this place before and hope to be back again soon,
Thanks again Philip

Very nice place to stay, everything is thought of for a homely feel and to make you feel comfortable. Would highly recommend as a place of accomodation.
A few things about the area:
It would be so much easier to hire a car a the location is in a quiet residential area and the nearest shop is 15 minutes walk.. the nearest supermarket is 20 minutes walk away which isnt far but the walk is over a footbridge on the dual carriageway. A Pub called the village inn is 15minutes walk away and their so friendly there. Theres buses to Marbella and Fuengirola which are very cheap €2 or less each but a taxi is about €20 also taxi drivers struggle to find the place so would recommend telling them a place which is close to it like the rancho grill and then directing them from there (even take a picture so they know).
The only problem we had with the apartment is we paid for english tv and then when we got there the guidebook said that it uses the wifi and could be a problem to use and when we tried it, it didnt work its not worth paying out for. Everything else was very good.
This apartment is really nice and comfortable. The lokal management is so helpful when anything fails. There is a short walking distance to a wonderful beach (best in spain). Parking place in the garage is very handy with an elevator to the apartment. We have stayed at this place several times and hope to be back again soon. Thank you Philip for this opportunity.
