Lovely apartment in a great location
Our first time at Cristina’s apartment and it was wonderful. We know the area very well as we’ve been visiting since 2006 but we couldn’t book our usual apartment and found Cristina’s on Home and Away. We weren’t disappointed. Spotlessly clean, great walk in shower and a lovely living room. It’s located in the heart of the action. As mentioned on other reviews, the pool area backs onto the main motorway and it can be a wee bit noisy but it’s spotlessly clean with a large pool and has plenty of sun beds. Stick a pair of head phones on and you won’t notice the background noise. After 2 days it didn’t bother us .The apartment is located at the side of the H10 hotel next to a very popular French restaurant. Its so convenient for the underpass located at the side of the casino - 75 yds from the apartment. 10 mins and you’re in the port. We walked to either Marbella or San Pedro every day but there’s plenty of pit stops along the way. Nearby , you have Funky tapas (highly recommended) or go over the hill towards Aldea Blanca and you’ll find the best (local) tapas bar in Puerto Banus, namely El dorado. We’ve been visiting it for 13 years and it’s exceptional. It’s located near the Voven restaurant . We are delighted with our choice of “stand by” apartment and will definitely return to Cristina’s apartment in the near future.
Had a lovely stay and apartment everything said it was. Highly recommended tapas bar and the staff friendly in sports bar. We’ve been to Peurto Banus a few times over the years an old favourite for us. Would recommend this apartment to any couple wanting to experience the area.
Home from Home
I just want to start by saying that this apartment exceeded our expectations. We were able to check in early which was perfect as we'd had an early flight. Cristina had suggested Vince the taxi guy for our transfers which we used, and he was great, he knew where he was going so there was no issues with arriving at the apartment.
Cristina greeted us, she was friendly and you can tell she takes pride in her property, which we did also. Its spotless. She showed us round, including the pool and gave us some tips on how to use things in the apartment which was great. She has catered for every need. It really is a home from home. The place is decorated to a high standard, its very comfortable and has everything you will need for a base. Excellent shower/bathroom. Beach towels, shower gel, washing powder, cling film, salt, pepper, olive oil..the list is long! English TV channels inc sports channels, there are DVDs and films on the tv box also. We had a bottle of wine chilled in the fridge from cristina which is a lovely little touch. The bed was very comfy, extra pillows and duvet in the wardrobe if needed. It has a small balcony which we used every day, out there is a washing airer and pegs. Air conditioning which we only used a couple of times as the fans were enough. The place is light and airy.The pool is not heavily used, there were a handful of people every day. There is noise from the road, a busy road, but it's very private and after the first day we didn't really notice it, but the pool is lovely and we made good use of it.
The apartment is on the 1st floor and there is a lift.
The local area is great, 2 minute walk is The funky tapas gastro bar food is amazing, really reasonably priced. We went to the sports bar daily and drinks are also reasonable, nice Gin. Next to the sports bar is an Italian, they do pizza to go, lovely! To cross the road there a subway which goes from the casino over the road, really simple - vince gave us all this information when he dropped us off. There is a supermarket next to the italian, however there is a bigger supermarket further up the hill, but even better is corte de ingles, a huge shopping centre in the town. The local beach is a 10 minute walk. There is a regular bus over the road to Marbella which is so cheap. Visit the old town, it's worth a trip out.
Overall our week was perfect, We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, I wish we had booked longer. Thank you Cristina for everything.
Great Location and Host Who thinks of Everything
This rental is perfect for two people visiting the area. Christina has provided all the little things most VRBO rentals don't. Things like cooking oil, spices, cold water, ice cubes, large bath towels, etc. Plus this rental has a queen sized bed which is unusual in Europe.
The two of us used this rental as our hub on visits to Tangiers, Alhambra, Gibraltar, and the caves of Nerja. With the ideal location we could also walk to the beach for sunrise and sunset. I highly recommend selecting this rental.
Thank you so very much for such a positive review. It was my pleasure hosting you as well as knowing you enjoyed your stay.
Excellent property, immaculately presented and fitted out, and spotlessly clean on arrival. Cristina met us and went over all the bits and bobs and left us to it. Well situated for the beach and port (10-15 minute stroll), as well as a good variety of local eateries (and a supermarket) all within 100-200 metres of the apartment if you don’t want to wander far in the evening. Pool area is lovely if a little noisy due to the main road – didn’t notice myself as I listen to music whilst lying about. Pool temperature was perfect. Pretty much an ideal base for a stay in Puerto Banus if you don’t fancy the hotel option. Highly recommended.
I really appreciate you took the time to write down such a positive review. Thank you so much for choosing my apartment. It was a pleasure meeting you.
