“A most relaxing and enjoyable holiday”
Reviewed July 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

I stayed at la Maestranza with a couple of friends and it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays I've had. The apartment is lovely - spotless, spacious, extremely comfortable and is equipped with everything you could possibly need, including a shopping trolly to bring back your wine and water from the supermarket! When in the apartment, we spent most of our time on the balcony with its lovely comfortable furniture.

The complex itself is kept beautifully clean and the garden areas are well tended.

There were plenty of restaurants and bars in the locale to enjoy, which were quieter (and less expensive) than the bustle of Puerto Banus, and the local supermarket is situated right beside the secure complex. However, a tax ride back from the port or the beach was only around 7 euros and there's also a bus service.

There are two swimming pool areas and we tended to go to the quieter, smaller pool to relax as there was shade from some trees if we wanted to escape the heat of the sun.

For a week chilling in the sun, away from the hustle and bustle, this was perfect!

Thank you for taking the time to post your lovely review!
I am so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your time, and yes - I too have found that the trolley comes in very useful for transporting the wine and water from the supermarket back to the apartment! :)

“A lovely stay”

We have just returned from a wonderful break at this apartment. First of all I'd like to thank the owner Carol for her responses to our emails and accommodating the many high chair/cot and other requests we had for our seven month old baby.

The apartment is exceptionally clean, much larger than you would expect and what was really welcome was the vast amount of facilities within it; a vast array of English TV channels, Wifi, a large terrace, hairdryers, straighteners, washing machine, dryer, even a hand blender for pureeing my little one's food. This owner has literally thought of everything.

The complex is lovely with a heated pool for children. There is a supermarket and bar right next door as well as a selection of nice restaurants including the amazing Planet Beat (great for informal Mexican dining) further up the road.

Then just a few minutes walk away on Av del Prado are some absolutely superb restaurants including the Curry Leaves Indian restaurant and the Vino y Mar tapas bar. The signage on the latter makes you want to avoid it but once you're up the stairs you are faced with the most beautiful terrace with amazing views of Nueva Andalucia and to top it all of the most amazing Spanish food I have ever eaten.

It's a pleasant 20 minute walk down into Banus but we much preferred everything in the immediate vicinity of Nueva Andalucia. If you're looking for a home from home with local amenities, just book this place. Not one bad word to be said.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review of your time at Casacarla. It's lovely to hear that your break here was so enjoyable! Thank you too, for your eating places recommendations. We are so fortunate to have these restaurants, bistros and bars on our doorstep. Planet Beat has only recently opened, so we are very much looking forward to trying it out on our next trip :) And as for your little one ...... it was easy and a pleasure for me to accommodate your baby requests!

Thank you to Mr and (the new!) Mrs Flaws for taking the time to post your review - and there can be no better feedback than having previous guests returning for another stay! The apartment is indeed a winner as we have guests who have returned each year since we started offering our holiday home for rental, some eight years ago now, and they've just booked again for next year! You're right - the location of the apartment with regards to the proximity of local restaurants, bars and shops is one of its many great features. Looking forward to welcoming you both back sometime soon to Casacarla!

“Perfect Spanish getaway”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We were delighted with our stay in Casa Carla and would highly recommend it to others - we couldn't fault it!

The apartment is beautifully furnished and maintained, whilst also being well set up for the self-catering traveller. It's an ideal base in which to relax and unwind, whilst also taking advantage of the very well maintained complex and surrounding facilities.

A selection of shops and bars are in easy reach and larger restaurants only a shot walk away. The town center can be reached on foot or by taxi and we greatly enjoyed exploring the area and local beaches.

Lastly a big thank you to Carol and her hospitality.

“Fabulous, spacious, well cared for appartment. Lovely!”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Just returned from an 11 night stay in this wonderful apartment in the La Maestranza complex.
Situated about 15 mins walk from the portside it's in a calm and quiet area far enough away from the hustle and bustle but within easy reach when we wanted it via a half hourly bus (€1.20) or a taxi (€6).
There's a Supermarket (Mercadona) and a couple of nice, informal cafes (Pasta Café and Café Comptoir) literally a stones throw away along with several cash machines dotted around.
The apartment itself is beautiful and the photos on here do not do it justice. It literally has EVERYTHING you need and is clearly lovingly looked after. It is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and we really could not have asked for more. I'd also like to thank the owner, Carol, who made the booking process and our arrival there so easy and stress free.
I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough. 10/10.

Thank you for taking the time to send your lovely comments! Yes, the location of the apartment is ideal with some restaurants and a supermarket in the immediate vicinity while the lively Port is just a short walk or bus/taxi ride away. It is so nice to hear from guests who have enjoyed and appreciate the comfort of the apartment as we do - and it was my pleasure to make the booking process and your arrival so stress free!

“Better than ever!!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We have stayed at Casa Carla several times and upon arrival it is clear that this is a well loved and cared for apartment! This time we noticed that the apartment had been freshly painted, new terrace furniture and bright new co-ordinated accessories throughout, even fluffy,soft new towels! A great base for cycling and discovering the coastline and many traditional restaurants . Going back in July and hopefully September!
