We stayed in this apartment in August 2016 - 2 adults and 3 children aged 16, 12 and 9. The accommodation exceeded our expectations as it is more spacious than the photos suggest. It was also spotlessly clean and incredibly well-equipped; the owners had thought of everything down to the smallest details and the lock-up in the garage was a treasure trove of extras such as inflatables for the pool. Sophie organised our transfers from the airport and we were greeted by the lovely Jane who explained how everything worked. A bottle of wine and chocolates were also a very nice gesture to make us feel welcomed.
The complex was very secure and the grounds were immaculate. We spent most of our time lazing by the communal pool which is a short stroll from the apartment. This is a lovely area, not overlooked, with plenty of shade and recliners. We found the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly and we had to tear the kids away to venture into Mijas.
There is a very well-stocked Lidl just minutes from the apartment which made self-catering very easy. A short walk takes you into the town of Mijas with numerous restaurants to choose from. We would recommend Sai if you like Indian food, El Gusto for steak and Henry's for pub grub. There is a market every Wednesday and Saturday which my 9 year old said was the highlight of her holiday! You feel very safe here and there are plenty of families wandering around or eating alfresco in the evenings.
Despite travelling in peak season the beaches weren't too crowded and the beach restaurants were plentiful and affordable. My kids loved the huge inflatable in the sea.
I would recommend this apartment without hesitation. The owners were helpful, friendly and professional and staying in their home was like a 'home-from-home' but better as it had a hot-tub ;)

Lovely family apartment, they've thought of everything! We would highly recommend this apartment for staying in la cala. The hot tub is great for the kids because usually we can't get them away from the pool. Thanks for the wine and chocs on arrival.
I was over for my sisters wedding so had been on the look out for accommodation close together for my family. We were met by Sally at the apartment she was lovely and very helpful. The apartments were very well equipped and very comfortable. The grounds and pools were perfectly kept. my husband and I were travelling with a baby and the apartment had everything necessary for that , eg..sterilising boxes, highchair,cot, even nappies and baby cleaning products if you were stuck. The air con was a life saver as the little man was feeling the heat a bit so it was great to have a cool sleeping environment. Over all it was a great place for us because we were looking for a quiet place. It was located 2mins walk from Lidl and about a 10-15min walk from the beach via fly over, over the main road.
It was a 15min walk from the centre of La Cala along the busy road but there are restaurants about 5mins away along the main road and they are very handy if you don't fancy a long walk or you want to be close to bed for babies bedtime!
The apartment was suited to us for our circumstance, it is not in the centre of things but has lots of amenities close by and 15mins isn't too bad a walk...
The only issue I would have at all with the apartment is that we could hear the neighbours very clearly through the walls! But that could have just been particularly noisy neighbours!
They are most suited to adult groups I would expect or small families.
The Jacuzzi was great but didn't get much use for fear of waking the baby!
We arrived late in the evening, and had problems with getting the Keys to the appartment. The appartment was fine, but small for 8 persons. The City was small and many places was closed, so not much to do there. We had cars so we could get to other places. We still haven't Got our deposit after 5 days and we were promised to get after 3 days.
We had a Nice holiday, but will not go there again.

Hi Sophie and Einar,
Thank you very much - it was a pleasure to stay at your holiday apartment. We really enjoy :) The apartment is good-sized also for bigger group. It was just two of us, so it was very spacious for us! Jacuzzi is amazing - we have to buy jacuzzi for home too!!
The apartment is nicely decorated. There is everything you need!
Location is great, you can easily walk to the beach and restaurants. And bikes were a nice extra!
It was a home away from home!
And Sally - she was just great :)
