Couple from Kidderminster, United Kingdom Oct 2016

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.

Hi Maura

Family from Cambridge, United Kingdom Jul 2016

Just back from a wonderful week at sparkling days. Great apartment, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We used the pool daily and the gardens and surrounding area are beautiful. Underground parking kept the car cool in average temperatures of 30c. Plenty of local restaurants and the beaches are close by (though we never did find the supermarket) . Attractions nearby, including the cable car and a boat trip to see dolphins. Malaga, Marbella and nearby port, all worth a visit. Happy to recommend and would love to return.

Many thanks for your review, Andrew, it was a pleasure to have you and we are glad that you enjoyed yourselves.
I have updated our photos with a map showing the local supermarket locations within an easy walk, so hopefully that will assist future guests.

excellent property with everything on hand and more! michelle and mark very helpful and couldnt have done anymore if they tried!only downfall was 4 english channels but when on holiday your not there to watch tv, but we had 2 boys under 3 years so had a couple of early nights in. Pool was good and even though 2nd week in October still just warm enough,beaches in walking distance but car hire recomended, no noise from neighbours and underground car park a godsend,

overall very impressed and right up there with properties we have rented previously in the area!! would i rent again? yes i would, will i? yes if the price is right!!

thanks for a wonderful holiday

Great appartment and location! :D

From Milton Keynes, United Kingdom Aug 2009

An excellent apartment which exceeded our expectations. It was clean, spacious & very well equipped - the swimming pool was great & the kids spent many many hours there!! The beach was a short walk away - Cobapino was a particular favourite. It is also a short drive from all the tourist locations. There are also a number of good restaurants only a short walk away. All in all we had a great time & will definately be returning. Many Thanks
