“Fantastic apartment on the coast”
Reviewed 30 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment is just as advertised! Brand new, perfectly sized for two individuals wanting their own space on holiday, or even for two couples. The owners are located nearby and more than extremely helpful. We wanted to print our return boarding passes, and without prompting they invited us round to theirs to help us out! Any small problem we may have had (although we didn't) we felt we could ask them about without issue.

The location of the apartment was great for us - about a 10 minute walk up the hill by the coast. The only downside was that it was extremely difficult to locate via taxi on our arrive (I advise you prebook at a fixed price so you don't get charged for them taking their time to find the place). Also, I do not think this is the right location for everyone, as it is quite a steep uphill trek.

The bathroom did occasionally smell (due to the plumbing) and there was quite a bit of noise from the neighbouring apartment's TV throughout the whole of the night. Aside from that, the apartment was fantastic. Everything (down to the olive oil) was provided, and there was an abundant collection of DVDs to choose from in case you fancied a night in.

I would definitely recommend it!

Thanks for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and feel that the flat was as expected. I guess neighbours can be unpredictable and I'm sorry you were unlucky on this occasion. It's usually very quite. The plumbing - as with everything else, I think you agree, is generally of a very high standard. However we take your comments seriously and I have had it checked and cleaned through now, so it is in perfect working order.

“Really lovely apartment”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

enjoyed our holiday very much. beautiful apartment with the added benefit of the parking garage. there is everything you could possibly need. the "smart" tv was fabulous-a real bonus as was the wifi. a lovely big balcony overlooked very well kept gardens and a sea view. there are 3 small shopping centres within easy reach and several bars and restaurants. we had a car so went out a lot to places such as Marbella, Banus and Nerja(a bit further afield). down the main road by the garage there's a travel agents were we booked a coach trip to Granada. well worth doing as it includes a guided tour and entrance to the Alhambra palace-beautiful. all in all a wonderful holiday.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The apartment is a perfect place for a family holiday. As a family with mobility issues we needed a place that has no steps or long walks and this was exactly what we had been looking for. To stay in the area you need a car but parking is underground and the space is right next to the lift. From the lift you are almost next to the front door. To reach the pool just walk to the end of the corridor and you are there.
The apartment has everything, big tv, internet, lots of space, comfortable beds and furniture and all the things you would require. The nearest shop is a shortish walk but better to use the car and go to Supersol or Mercadona. There are plenty of places to eat but we ate In a lot ( the kitchen is fully equipped). Ben kept in touch to make sure all was well and both he and his keyholder/housekeeper type person were always available if needed.
We have stayed in various apartments in the area and this was the best. If you can book it then you wont be dissappointed

“Winter Escape”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I booked Ben's flat for 5-6 weeks Feb through Mar 2015, and basically everything was excellent. The flat has everything that you could possibly need, including Wi-Fi and UK television. The location is excellent giving easy access to a wonderful beach area on the coast a short walk below. The complex has 2 sizeable pools for those coming in the Summer months; and is maintained (gardens etc.) to the highest standard.

In short a home from home away from the worst of the Winter back home.

Many thanks; I'll be coming again!

“A perfect holiday in an excellent place.”

Ben, the owner sent us plenty of information, pictures and videos of the apartment and the surroundings. By the time of our journey we were already familiar with everything. Actually, the apartment, the gardens, the pools and the whole area is even much more beautiful than I expected. The complex is secure, well maintained and perfectly clean throughout. The apartment is very well equipped. We didn't miss a thing. It was very comfortable and big enough for a family of five. There are plenty of books, board games, DVD's, but we simply had no time to use them. The beach is close to the comlex, however it is quite an excersise to climb back up to the flat. The beach is well maintained and clean too. Our children had great fun playing in the sand. There are a huge amount of restaurants and shops all over the village. La Cala de Mijas is a lovely place with lovely people. Chris and Gloria, friends of Ben manage the property and are very kind and helpful too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rancho C Miraflores and would highly recommend it to anyone.
