We reviewed this apartment on this site back in 2011 following our first visit - as we prepare for our "5th visit" and getting excited! felt it was worthy to review our last visit (all be it a little late in the day!). It's difficult to add more to what we have already posted other than to say that the high standard of cleanliness, comfort and available facilities of the apartment, plus the level of pre and post service from Sharon has not dropped in anyway and as our review title says, our experience at this apartment over the years has been "Consistently Excellent!" - so looking forward to our next stay Sharon xx
PS the location and view never fails to please!
Hi Brenda - Thank you for posting this review following your stay last year! As you already know, other previous guests are now reviewing us on TripAdvisor, so your review on this site will hopefully be helpful to other viewers considering our accommodation as it validates the fact that we continue to maintain our apartment to a high standard and still strive to deliver to our guests a good personal service both pre and post stay. We look forward to accommodating you again this year (as always!) and your continued returns are simply the best compliment and recommendation that we can get! Bye for now. Kind regards, Sharon & Darren
We're just back from spending a relaxing and peaceful two weeks in this comfortable and very well appointed luxury apartment (22 April - 6 May 2018).
Given what we had read concerning this apartment and its idyllic hilltop location, our expectations were high. From the moment we arrived, those expectations were exceeded. Stepping out onto the terrace the first time really was a 'Wow!' moment. The apartment was presented spotlessly clean. All of the furnishings are of a high quality and the decor is tasteful throughout. Everything you could reasonably demand is provided, to make your stay a pleasure.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at 'LA Vista', and it is fully deserving of the five star rating at the top of this review. Very highly recommended!
Hi Jeremy - Thank you so much for taking the time to review our apartment on this site as well! Once again you have highlighted the presentation of our apartment perfectly as in being very clean, high standard furnishings and with tasteful decor throughout and as with many other previous guests, the 'wow' factor of the view from the fully furnished and very large south facing terrace, never fails to impress and delight our guests (and not forgetting the 4 pools too!) and we were very happy to hear that it exceeded your high expectations! We look forward to seeing you return in the future. Best Wishes & Kind Regards - Sharon & Darren
Fabulous Penthouse apartment, magnificent views
We spent the most amazing 2 weeks at this fabulous penthouse apartment. Sharon was the best person we have ever dealt with. She was helpful and so efficient from start to finish. The apartment was so spacious, well equipped and comfortable. We didn't close the curtains and slept looking at starry clear nights. The views were spectacular and could see Gibraltar some days. We visited Cabopino beach, which was lovely and lively. We went to Rhonda- hour and a half but breathtaking. Mijas Pueblo was a gorgeous Spanish village about 20 mins away. Marbella and Benalmadena marina also worth a visit. Our final trip was Nerja, long drive but beautiful place and stunning caves. We ate at steak house on the edge of El Zoco..very nice! We liked Supersol supermarket on the El Zoco centre the best, quite reasonable.
Overall we loved our holiday , best one yet!!! Thanks to Sharon and Darren for sharing your beautiful place..
Hi Martin & Heather - Thank you for your lovely review! We must admit that when we stay at our apartment, we too sleep with the curtains open to enjoy the beautiful night skies, another added bonus of our apartment not being overlooked and having the privacy to do just so! It is lovely to hear that you visited some of the best areas of this coast for the full Spanish experience and that you took advantage of our central location which makes it very easy to get around and for the majority of resorts, in very little time too! When we spoke following your return, we were delighted to hear your enthusiasm and enjoyment of our apartment and in saying you had already looked at dates again for next year says it all for us! We look forward to seeing you return. All the best for now. Kind regards Sharon & Darren
Fantastic Penthouse !
We (family of four) spent two weeks at this penthouse in July 2014 and had a great holiday. Sharon and Darren, thank you for letting us use your penthouse. As other guests have commented the terrace is great, very large with sun all day. Inside the accommodation is spacious and furnished to a very high quality. There is pretty much everything you could want or need for your stay. Having rented many apartments and villas over the last few years, this is without doubt the best that we have stayed in! There are four pools on the complex and they are surprisingly quiet. We stayed during the school holidays and often there were only a handful of families around the pool so his was great and very relaxing ... No fighting for sunbeds! The penthouse is within walking distance of a couple of very nice restaurants, in particular El Gaucho. Having stayed near Calahonda several times, we didn't realise how many good quality restaurants there are in the resort. Devines was very good, very child friendly with reasonable prices.
Finally, the booking process from first enquiry to stay was a breeze! Sharon was extremely helpful with any questions we had. All in all a great place to stay and we are returning in 2015!
Hi Brendan - Thank you for your review! It reconfirms what previous guests have commented upon about the quality and spaciousness of the apartment with its 'home from home' comforts and especially the lovely large terrace area which is enjoyed by all both day and night! Yes the pools are quiet and relaxing, yes the restaurants within walking distance are very good and yes, Calahonda itself has many other excellent and child friendly restaurants as you have now experienced! The fact that you have already booked another fortnight stay with us next summer, is the biggest compliment we can get (thank you!) and we do look forward to accommodating you and your family next year as one of our many returning guests! We will be in touch again in due course. Best wishes & kind regards, Sharon & Darren
Great place for our Family vacation!
Stayed in La Vista with family for two weeks in the end of August. The apartment is really nice and was perfect for us (3 adults and 2 kids). The area is in general really nice with some nice pools and clean surroundings.
I would say that a car is a must in this location, even though you can walk to the closest restaurants for example, you wont be walking to the grocery store, it´s basically a steep uphill road all the way from everywhere to the apartment, especially if you are staying with little kids. But having a car makes everything much easier, and the parking space is well located just a couple of steps from the elevator which then again goes right up front to the apartment door, so having a car makes everything much easier.
The apartment is nice with three bedrooms and a small kitchen, nice living room and a really great terrace. If you got really small kids the terrace might become a concern, but ones the kids are at sleep its great for the adults to sit and relax at the terrace. Since the terrace is so big you can easily hang clothes and towels to dry and they wont be in the way for using the terrace for relaxing at the same time. Only downside of having the sun shining to the terrace all day is that the floor gets so hot you can´t walk on it without slippers :)
Calahonda is a nice little town, but if you want to go to the beach we would recommend the Mijas beach rather than Calahondas own beach abt. 10 min. drive from the apartment, same goes for nightlife, most of the restaurants in Calahonda close quite "early" if you want to have a night out so you´ll be better of by taking a taxi to Mijas or Puerto Banus for example. But since Calahonda is pretty close to both you have many options for night life..
For places to visit in the nearby area I would recommend Mijas village up on the hills (abt. 20min drive from the apartment) really nice little village with donkey and horse rides, nice restaurants and cafes, souvenir shopping etc. Also the Biopark Zoo in Fuengirola is really nice, the Aquarium in Benalmadena on the other hand is a waste of time and money, not recommended, but the Cable Car ride up to Mount Calamorro in Benalmadena is great and a lot of fun ! Remeber to check the timetable for falcon shows etc. before going up though !
All and all a great vacation, and the La Vista apartment was really nice and perfect for our needs. I would recommend the place for anyone who doesn´t need hotel services.
Hi Mika & family - Thank you for your review and your tips to readers are much appreciated! You are correct that Calahonda is more of a family resort with the focus being on family friendly restaurants and small bars as opposed to the busy resorts of Marbella, Banus, Fuengirola etc where bars and nightclubs can be open all night long! but for those seeking such entertainment, luckily Calahonda is only a very short distance away, so yes a great choice of night life available! We have always and continue to advice car hire to guests, not just to make the very most of their stay on the Costa del Sol with so many lovely places to visit, for those days to the beach with so much 'paraphernalia' to carry! and as you have pointed out, for the sheer convenience and ease of self catering purposes which a holiday in our apartment is all about! As with all previous guests I know you enjoyed the terrace space both day and night time and as parents with very young children, you were quite right to correctly supervise your children whilst out on the terrace just as you would on any balcony/terrace area! Your comment about how hot the terrace floor gets made me smile but reinforces that when we say it gets sun all day, we mean sun all day :-). I have really enjoyed all our communication together both pre and post your stay and we would be delighted to see you return again in the future! Best wishes and kind regards Sharon & Darren
We had a fantastic holiday staying in this wonderful apartment. The views from the spacious balcony were amazing. The accommodation is furnished to a very high standard and included everything you could need for a very enjoyable holiday. We spent many an evening out on the terrace relaxing with a nice cool drink.
The pool was never crowded even though we stayed in August. We recommend car hire which enables you to visit all the wonderful locations the Costa del Sol has to offer.
Sharon and Darren are extremely helpful and a pleasure to speak to. All in all we highly recommend staying at this wonderful penthouse apartment.
Hi Karen & family - Thank you for submitting a review for us but mostly for the potential guests considering our apartment and who are reading these reviews, as comments, tips and advice from guests who have actually stayed with us, are very important in their final decision making! We did have e-mail communication between ourselves early on during your stay and you commented immediately on much you were "absolutely loving the apartment" and the review you have submitted, reconfirms this! As always, the terrace never fails to please and yes the pools don't get overcrowded even in August! It was a pleasure speaking with you on your return and the personal feedback you gave me and we look forward to seeing you return again in the future! Best wishes & kind regards, Sharon & Darren
