About Miss Chalice Croke
I purchased my lovely apartment over 24 years ago. I use it as much as I possibly can with my family when I'm not busy working in London. I travel a lot and enjoy holidays which range from 2 - 5 stars, so I understand good value for money and what represents good accommodation.
Miss Chalice Croke purchased this Apartment in 1991
Why Miss Chalice Croke chose Estepona
For me owning a 2nd home abroad was all about the sea and beach and this apartment has it all. It's large, it's opposite the beach, it has the most amazing sea views and I can see the mountains too. It's on a very secure and private residential complex so whether I am there on my own or with my family I always feel safe. The apartment is within close proximity to the town centre. Just a 7 minute drive along the beautiful coastal road with mountains in the backdrop and I am in either Estepona Port East or Sabinillas West, close enough to get into town with ease but away from the hustle and bustle, perfect! I can walk to a supermarket, a 5 star beach club/bar, a 2 star beach restaurant, a day spa and gym and I have a shared pool. Car hire is essential when staying at my apartment but there is a bus stop outside and buses run frequently so all in all it works for me and my guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
Location, location, location ... sea views, mountain views, proximity to beach, private exclusive complex of 1 low rise block surrounded by individual villas all with own pools. Turn off the coastal road straight into Buenas Noches and our car park is at the entrance so it's really really easy to find. This apartment is simply huge.

Good size, good location
2nd time at Las Bougainvillas and once again can't fault it.
Short drive into town but that's ok as Estepona is a big town and we like
the variety of beaches and driving into the mountains before heading for our daily walk.
WiFi connection was intermittent but it was free so didn't mind and
I bought a dongle locally for only £10 euros. FIVE STARS. We will be back again soon.
Lovely large apartment convenient for town
This bright, light apartment is perfect for families or - as we were - a group of friends wanting space and sunshine. Estapona is a very pleasant town, with a long sandy beach, and lots of restaurants to choose from. Highly recommended.
Spacious, clean & great sea views.
I travelled with my Husband and 18 month old and we just loved the space in this apartment. It has a large lounge with beautiful sun terrace which was ideal for bbq's & really good sized bedrooms. The apartment is clean and well equipped with everything you should need, the pool was lovely & peaceful - we were often the only people using it.
The Owner was really helpful as has so much knowledge of the area, she helped with car hire & gave us a list of the best local beaches & resturants to visit - this is invaluable information when you are travelling somewhere for the first time with a small child!
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again & would highly recommend others to stay here too.

Stayed in October
Wanted a nice apartment and was a bit sceptical at first as it is advertised as budget and some of the reviews were not amazing.
However I found the apartment amazingly clean, amazingly bright, amazingly well furnished and we simply couldn't believe that the owner advertises it as budget accommodation.
The rates are amazing compared to other advertisers, when divided between 4 / 6 people it works out around £10 per night per person and frankly you can't book a beach hut, pension or BnB anywhere in the world for these rates these days. Or if you do, you don't expect shiny marble floors, clean linen and towels, breath taking sea views, a pool, coffee making machine and the ability to pay by credit card. Call me new age but this place rocks in terms of value for money v comfort during your stay.
I am going back and passing the word on too.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay and found the apartment clean and good value for money.
I guess I am under selling it by advertising it as budget but I've always felt that not over promising and keeping the prices keen are some of the reasons why my regular guests come back time and time again. Hopefully you will too!
What a lovely relaxing holiday, great times.
My Wife & I stayed here with our friends, 5 of us in all.
booking was very simple & the owner gave us loads of helpful info & tips(Thank you! we had a great night at El Rincon Toscano)
The apartment was a great size, clean & fresh, with great sea views & didn't feel cramped at all, the facilities were good with fresh towels/linen etc& the kitchen has all you need.
The beautiful pool & garden were great for relaxing in the lovely sunshine & although it is a communal pool we never saw anyone else there.
Estepona is a lovely area with alot of character, nice little local bars & with Puerto Banus & Marbella just down the road you get the best of both worlds.
We had such an amazing time we have already booked up for this summer
Hope this is helpful.
DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY
When we arrived the afternoon of the 3th of July, after a travel of 10 hours, the responsable of the keys told us nobody will arrive to the appartment this day and she has no instructions from the owners, and we spend one hour to show her the e mails and to try to explain her (she speaks only spanish...)
at least she give us the keys, this appartment was the dirtiest one I ve seen, a porchery, we have been shoked and when we asked the keyholder she doesnt stopped speanking spanish and done nothing for us.
we wrote several emails to Chalice, she appologizes so many times and nothing was done , we have to clean the apprtment during hours so we can sleep quitly, and the day after we had to buy cleaning products and clean all the appartment
We had to buy towels and bedleanen, and four days after a woman brings us towels and sheets.
we spend two weeks in the appartment and nobody asks about us or about the appartment cleanness.
As the appartment is not cheap, it must be perfectly cleaned and furnished,
So I dont recommend this appartment to nobody, espacialy families with children,
