Just returned from Sue and Mick's apartment and would thoroughly recommend. Perfect position all amenities available and a lovely walk into La Cala which is a lovely village with everything you need available.We were blessed with great weather which made it perfect for sunbathing on the large balcony.

“Excellent Family Holiday”

people found this review helpful

This accommodation had fantastic reviews and so we were very eager to see if it lived up to our expectation and we were definitely not disappointed! It is everything you would need for a very enjoyable family holiday.

The accommodation is a very high standard with all the comforts of home which was of the utmost importance to us as we were travelling with the three children, aged 10, 8 and 4. The apartment comfortably fit all of us and was very clean upon arrival. There was loads of extra bed linens and towels as well as a large amount of cutlery, tableware and kitchen utensils...really everything you could need which meant you didn't have to eat out every night if you didn't want. There is a large Lidl supermarket within 5 min walking distance from the apartment which was extremely convenient for all your shopping needs. The complex itself was friendly and relaxed, very well maintained with two pool areas set in pretty gardens...a really lovely place to spend the day by the pool.

The gorgeous town of La Cala is an easy 10-15 min walk from the complex. It's small streets with the pretty white buildings were a joy to walk through. The people are friendly and everywhere is well maintained, from the children's park at the end of the footbridge to the lovely beach and promenade area. The town offers a generous choice of restaurants all of which were of a good standard (some were excellent!), and some bars and shops, all well within walking distance. La Cala is a real jewel in the Costa Del Sol, and much prettier and more charming than it's larger neighbours Fuengirola, Marbella, Benalmadena and Torremolinos. These larger towns were very accessible with an excellent bus service to Fuengirola only 5 min from the apartment, where connections were available at the Bus and Train station. There is a good market on in La Cala on a Wed and Sat morning, which again is only 5-10 min walk from the apartment.

Recommended restaurants in La Cala were the Cantonese beside Biddy Mulligans which was excellent food for a very reasonable price, Biddy's itself which was good for burgers etc. and a great place to watch the sport and Exquisite, which had lovely pasta and pizzas etc. A very special mention goes to El Gusto which is also beside Biddy's which was absolutely gorgeous, fabulous food and really great service, not too mention the best Sunday Roast we have ever had outside of Ireland!

The apartment owners, Mick and Sue, were also a joy to deal with, very quick to reply to emails and to return our security deposit, and also gave us a couple of lovely personal calls to see how our holiday went after we had returned.


Overall we loved La Cala and Mick and Sue's apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone. Hopefully we will visit again very soon!

Another amazing stay at this immaculate apartment it is a great place to stay a home from home with all you need and more.a sun trap balcony .
Great information book provided about things to do and great restaurants .very handy having a supermarket close by now as well.
Transfer from airport to apartment was good and very efficient thanks to the owners recommendation and very reasonably priced.
Mick and sue are such nice people and are so helpful nothing is to much trouble for them and even give a courtesy call after the holiday to see how we got on and to find out feedback to see if they can provide anything else to make it a better stay but what I say to them is its perfect the way it is. I will be booking again still so much to explore there to.i would highly recommend it to anyone.5*

“Fantastic holiday,pity it came to an end!”

Just returned from La Cala where we stayed for two weeks in Mick and Sue's wonderful apartment.
It's always a bit daunting choosing a property over the internet and paying your hard earned cash upfront to complete strangers!However,communication with M and S by e-mail was quick and efficient.Sue actually telephoned soon after my first initial contact.I then had complete faith.
We booked our transfers,much cheaper than a taxi(i'd checked!)and he was there on arrival with the keys.
The apartment itself is bright,airy and modern.Plenty of wardrobe space in the bedrooms,clean linen and towels.With two children it's handy having two bathrooms.The kitchen has every item you could possibly need.
Everything was spotless on arrival,and we had a contact number for emergencies.
We spent most days at the pool,it's cleaned everyday and the lovely gardens are immaculate.The beach is about a 15 minute walk and has the usual bars and jet-ski hire.
In the apartment Mick and Sue have compiled a book with restaurant guides,places of interest and previous guests have added to this which we found really helpful.
At the bottom of the apartment complex to the right, there is a row of bars and restaurants.We tried the Chinese,Indian and Henry's.Henry's is good for a drink before deciding what to eat and where!
Over the bridge and into the main town is where all the action is.There's plenty of choice,the atmosphere is lovely at night and the resort is really quite 'Spannish!'
We both do a lot of driving through work so couldn't be bothered to hire a car.The bus service is cheap and i'd say half hourly each way.We had a great day at the waterpark and getting there by bus added to the excitement.
All good things come to an end and it now seems just a memory.Sue rang the night after we got back and our deposit was quickly returned.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and thanks to Mick and Sue we had a brilliant holiday.

“LOVELY APARTMENT WITH A GREAT BALCONY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

people found this review helpful

The apartment is nicely furnished and fully equipped with everything you will need including English TV. The balcony is a favourite feature of ours and you can sit outside all day in the sun if you wish.

The apartment is ideally located within walking distance of all amenities and the addition of a new large Lidl supermarket just round the corner from the apartment enhances the facilities.

Mick and Sue are very helpful to deal with and are always quick to respond to emails, they also have a good support network in Spain to sort out any problems.

We have stayed at Mick and Sue’s apartment for the past three years and plan to return next year.

“A fantastic penthouse apartment”

The complex with pools & children's play area was extremely secure & apartment easily accessed by lift. The views in all directions were great and the large terrace/balcony with BBQ & furniture was excellent for relaxing outside. The apartment is very well equipped with 2 great bathrooms & everything you could require for a very comfortable holiday. In addition there was a very generous amount of kitchen equipment & towels as an added bonus. The beach & small town with bars & restaurants were within a very easy 10 minute walk from the apartment, but you can walk for miles if you wish along the beach pasing little bars & chinguritos en route. Bus service is great so car not really needed. We had a good time..
