Apartamento muy limpio que cumplía perfectamente todas nuestras necesidades. Cumple con todo lo que indica en su ficha por lo que no podemos más que recomendarlo.
Gracias a Llew por su "seguimiento a distancia", esperamos conocerlo en una futura ocasión.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans l'appartement propre et spacieux de Llew. Très belle vue et non loin de la plage. La Cala de Mijas est bien située entre Malaga et Marbella. C'etait notre base arrière pour visiter l'andalousie. Llew était très à l'écoute de nos interrogations et de bon conseil même si nous ne l'avons pas rencontré personnellement. Il est assez rigolo et certainement très cultivé. Nous ne pouvons que conseiller de lui rendre visite un jour. Faites nous confiance... Merci et à bientôt
We had a fabulous stay at Llew's place.
The apartment was clean, well appointed and very comfy. And, as the pictures show, the views are sensational. The excellent wifi was a bonus as well.
The area was just perfect for us. The beach, which is only a short walk, is lovely. There's an endless Boardwalk (ideal when you have a pushchair) and the numerous restaurants (on the beach and more inland) are great for food and drink. We also found the staff at all the spots to be really friendly.
The walk to the beach is down, and then back up a short but steep hill. It's something to be aware of but it really isn't a problem. My wife was 30 weeks pregnant and managed fine. Just take your time.
Llew is an excellent host. He ensured we had all the information we needed both before and during our stay and was always on hand to answer questions or provide advice if required. He was also very supportive when there were potential disruptions to our plans due to a Spanish air traffic control strike - no actual problems occurred but the support was really appreciated.
It was perfect summer holidays, the place is nice and apartment too. Only some things (not critical) like nights noisy from motorway if you sleep with open windows on the balcony and if you close it, become stuffy and better to have air conditioner!
Unfortunately it is difficult when you get close to the sea in Mijas Costa (& we are very close) there is a bit of street noise. We have considered air-conditioning but this comes at a cost which would have to be passed on the the guests. Also, air-conditioning is only necessary for about one month every year (August). However, we will certainly look into this again. One possibility is to have a coin operated air-conditioner, so the cost would be borne by the user.
Llew was very friendly and helpful. He provided lots of information about the facilities and local area. He also kept in touch after we arrived to make sure we were getting on OK.
The apartment was clean and well cared for with everything we needed. The furniture was comfortable and the view from the balcony was stunning especially at night when the moon was rising over the sea in front of the balcony.
There was plenty to do in the local area and we'd be happy to go back for another holiday.
Endroit magnifique ! Appartement spacieux et entièrement équipé avec en plus vue sur mer.
Llew est une personne très disponible, toujours prêt à répondre à vos attentes et qui vous donne de bons conseils (restaurants, endroits à visiter...).
Si nous revenons en Andalousie, nous serons enchantés d'être de nouveau chez Llew.
Je recommande vivement !
Thank you Llew! we had a wonderful time in Mijas and enjoyed great holidays there. The appartment was very clean, fully equiped (much more and better than expected) and had a magnificent view on the sea. It was very close to the beach and the pool was almost empty. Llew recommended us many places to visit and restaurants, we tried many of them and they were excellent.
