About Russ Stafford
Fell in love with this area many years ago and just had to buy something.
Russ Stafford purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Russ Stafford chose Benalmádena
We love to spend time on the coast and in the more Spanish area of Arroyo De La Miel. With easy acces from the airport by train plus the readily available and cheap bus service to nearby towns this location was ideal. We have views over Paloma Park and the Feria ground/Selwo Marina, quiet yet loads going on within 5 mins walk plus supermarket a short walk away.
What makes this Apartment unique
Views, supermarket close by, loads of bars/restaurants close by and good cheap transport links.

Thank you for your kind words. Really glad you found the apartment to your liking and it lived up to your expectations for your first stay with us.
First time ever a months break in an apartment not the usual two weeks in a hotel. Fantastic break from start to finish. A whole new experience and made so simple. Home and Away site was easy to use and very helpful and on arrival at property it was exactly as stated. The owner Russ Stafford had helped us with loads of info that we asked for and the information in the apartment was helpful and accurate.
The apartment in Benalmadena is in a very good location between the town and the beach next to and over looking the lovely Paloma Park. Everything is close and you feel very safe. The apartment was outstanding, clean well furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need. I would without worry use this property and the services of Home and Away again. Thank you for a great winter break.
Thank you for kind words. Really glad you took the plunge to try apartment living with us. We try to offer a "home from home" service as we find it handy to have full kitchen with washing machine, fridge freezer and full size cooking facilities, when we go elsewhere. It helps keep the overall cost down and provides the option to eat at home, especially with the great selection of foods on offer at the nearby Mercadona.
I have passed your comments on to our cleaning team, glad to see they were up to your standards.
You are very welcome back as guests anytime.

Really glad you enjoyed your stay. I have passed your comments on to our cleaning team. We try to provide a home from home experience, pleased you found it to your liking.
Excellent Apartment and location
My family and I stayed here for 4 weeks in August 2018, it is a great apartment 3 good sized bedrooms lounge and nice terrace with views over the gardens & pool. The location is good, just a short walk to Arroyo De La Miel main shops and bars or a walk through the park to the beach and some great seafood restaurants and other activities, we used the jet skis and the parasailing. Just outside the apartments the bus will take you to Benalmadena Pueblo which worth a visit for a more Spanish feel.
The cleaners called each week with fresh towels and bedding, we would highly recommend this apartment.
Really glad you enjoyed your stay in Benalmadena. Excellent guests welcome back anytime.
Great apartment perfect location
Before we even left home Russ was in touch with lots of helpful information and tips. He answered all of my queries quickly and with good humour.
Our taxi transfer struggled with the apartment address and was not sure where exactly it was - though we showed them the directions provided by Russ and they got us there without a problem.
Access was straightforward- the apartment complex is very secure and the grounds are beautiful.
The apartment itself was lovely. Very clean and well equipped. We were a group of 5 adults and 2 kids and had plenty of space. The kids slept on the sofa bed which they found very comfortable.
The pool did not open until 11:30am but this gave us an excuse to lie in and take it easy getting ready in the morning. There was no fight for sun beds - plenty of them and the lifeguard was very strict about no towels being left on sun beds - even if popping up for lunch etc.
The local area was excellent. The Paloma Park great for the kids, the beach a 15/20 minute walk down hill after the park. The local centre Arroyo de Miel was great to eat out with lots of traditional Spanish bars and restaurants and some lovely shops. The train station was also located here and only a 10 minute walk from apartment- going straight into Malaga airport and the city - which is beautiful.
We will definitely return- cold not pick any faults.
Thanks for a great holiday!
Thank you for the review, really glad you enjoyed your stay and the apartment met your expectations. We wpould happy to have you back anytime.
