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.
The apartment was superbly furnished and equipped. it was an excellent choice for our winter break, shame about the noisy main road (N340) too close for comfort; there was no facility for pedestrian/cyclist use, and it was the only route to supermarkets. The boardwalk was most enjoyable.

Referring to our reveiw at the begining of march
What a great property. The owner produces a comprehensive review and it is all 100%. If you love the beach it is ideally situated with newly constructed broad walks over the nature reserve. The pool is great but obviously as you are in a complex on the second floor sun loungers are not readily available - take a towel. Security is really good. Key entrance to the complex, key entrance to the stairwell and obviously key entrance to the flat with secure underground parking as an added extra. Situated in an ideal location and has many many restaurants a walk away. We even walked to La Cala (during the day) stopping for a lovely Sunday lunch with the Spanish in a Chiingurito. Full air conditioning and IPTV are all included - great deal. Three double bedrooms but when we were at the apartment the main bedroom was a double and the other two were two singles so three couples could be a push. Interesting to read in the comments book that some Scandinavians had visited three times for some 6-7 weeks at a time - that probably gives you the best clue to this hidden gem.
