“Relaxing family holiday ”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

From the outset Janet the owner was warm, friendly and very quick to respond to all my queries prior to our two week stay at her apartment.

We are a family of six with two teenage girls and two preschool children, so a rental search needed three spacious bedrooms, to be safe for a prewalker and have views of the surrounding area so we could keep an eye on the big ones while the little ones were indoors! Janet's apartment ticked every single box.

Being a ground floor apt it was perfect, with views over the pool so we could keep an eye on everybody. Bedrooms were all spacious, modern and very clean. Both bathrooms were a lovely size, easily accommodating all of our products from nappies to hair straighteners! Extremely well equipped kitchen with everything you need to cook. Not a massive kitchen but this is very typical in Spain and was not a problem what so ever for us.

The air-conditioning was welcomed during the heat wave, particularly for the baby who struggled to cope a little bit with the evening temperatures.

The outside patio was lovely. In the evenings we could sit and have a family meal with lots of space and enjoy an outside barbecue. During the day it was a Sun trap. Perfect.

The apartment was exactly as described, the residents were warm and friendly and quite often we had the pool completely to ourselves, despite being the start of the school summer holidays.

The area:
A car isn't necessary although you do have to be fit to come up and down the hill to the supermarkets in very warm temperatures. As previous reviews have stated you can easily get a cab if you can't face the walk!

We were in Calahonda during the July heatwave so just made sure we went to the shops earlier or later to avoid the midday sun. Everything is within walking distance to make your stay easy. Getting a bus into Marbella is incredibly easy and cheap, we did that a couple of times and even ventured out to la Cañada, a fabulous shopping mall in Marbella with an amazing huge supermarket.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to couples or families, I'm almost reluctant to sing its praises as it will get booked up meaning we can't visit again next year!!

Very much hoping to return.

Fantastic apartment with large private patio which gets the sun most of the day. Short walk to a fantastic beach and shopping area.
Janet has thought of everything, even has a drawer with bits and bobs you might need or have forgotten.
Really is a home from home.
Loved the place so much we're going back in September.

Have just returned home from a great holiday at Caserio de Calahonda. I can honestly say the previous reviews have not over sold this great apartment. The owner has decorated the apartment to high specifications, getting all the big things right, as well as the tiny details which help make your holiday run smoothly, like information on how to recognise your bus stop when returning from Marbella etc. The pool is wonderful, and just a few steps from the apartment, tempting even the most reluctant swimmers.

As stated in previous reviews there are plenty of good restaurants in Calahonda, although we preferred to go to the marina at Puerto Cabopino, which can be walked in around 25 min. A taxi will cost just less than 10 euro. Try 'Albert’s' if you are missing a taste of home. Excellent British classics at a really high standard.

If relaxing by the pool or down at the lovely sandy beach is not enough, there is plenty to do around the area that will fill your days. The Bioparc in Fuengirola was a big hit with our family.

So all in all a great holiday for us. Are there any down sides? Well only a small one, if like us you decided not to hire a car. The walk up the hill back from the supermarket can seem a long way when carrying lots of bags, however on arrival, the temptation to jump straight into the pool is hard to resist.
