Gorgeous 3rd floor apartment with sea views, minutes from the beach and Marina
About Andy Loftus
We have been holidaying in Estepona since 1992 and in 2009 we were lucky enough to be able to leave Manchester and spend more time in Spain. We have been letting guests stay in our apartments for over 10 years and like to think that we now know how to make our guests holidays a special experience; from the simple booking process, to providing detailed directions to the apartment, to the standard of the 'finish' of the apartments and the quality of the complementary welcome pack that we provide. It sounds easy but getting the little details just right is often the making of a stress free holiday.
Andy Loftus purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Andy Loftus chose Estepona
This apartment is ideally situated a short walk from both the Marina (250m) and the lovely Cristo Beach (50m). It is furnished in a modern but still comfortable style and is equipped to a high standard. With air-conditioning (and winter heating), two pools and a stunning, spacious terrace with sea views, you would struggle to find a better place to stay in Estepona.
What makes this Apartment unique
This apartment was previously owned by friends of ours and after waiting seven years having 'first refusal' on the apartment if it was ever for sale we were lucky enough to be able to purchase it in 2010. We hope that once you see the apartment, the location and the huge terrace that you will agree it was worth our wait! The 40m2 terrace with this apartment is unlike any other we have seen and we have made sure that our guests can enjoy it fully by adding a glass wall so the sea views are uninterrupted, loungers for taking in the sun, a patio set perfect for al-fresco dining and subtle lighting so you can stay out there even after the sun has set.

Fantastic property exactly as advertised
We have been visiting Estepona for 12 years now staying in various different accommodation. This apartment was exceptional and we will be back hopefully soon. We love El Cristo beach so was the perfect location for us. Car not needed we travel from Malaga airport by bus which is an air con coach and travel to Gibraltar, Marbella and Banus by 79 bus. Andy ensures the whole process from booking to departure is effortless. Thanks for a wonderful holiday
Thanks very much for taking the time to leave a review and also for the positive comments. Let me know if you want to return again in the future. Andy.
Wonderful apartment great location
Had 10 wonderful days at this property. Very clean and spacious accommodation. Amazing terrace with fantastic views. Very well equipped kitchen and great having English TV if needed. It really felt like a home from home not your usual holiday rental. A few steps outside the complex leads to a lovely beach with sun beds and 2 beach bars. Mariana, 2 supermarkets bars and restaurants a 5 minute stroll away. We had great communication from Andy the owner and Sue who was on hand if needed. Really enjoyed our stay and if we were ever going to return we would definitely choose this apartment.
Hi Mark, Thanks for leaving your review and also for the positive comments. You are welcome back any time! Regards, Andy.
We had a great stay in Estepona, the accommodation was all it said it was. Great location within easy walking distance to the boardwalk and even closer to the harbour/port. The beach out front is easy to get to and very nice with fine sand and a protected swimming area.
Andy was great at communicating throughout the booking process and made sure we were well set up for our arrival and stay.
I would definitely recommend this property if you wish to stay in Stepona.
Hi Steve, Thanks for the positive review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Regards, Andy & Beata.
Marina Bay: The Development was ideally situated and very well maintained and easy access to thepool
We have just returned after having two glorious months in Estepona😃👍 the apartment was perfect,very well equipped,spacious with a massive terrace giving you fantastic sea views including Gibraltar in the distance, The position of Marina bay could not be better it took us no more than 3 minutes to reach the beach with 2 excellent restaurants, we were 5 minutes walking distance to supermarkets and the port where we spent most days trying out the multitude of numerous restaurants and exploring the Sunday market.
In short we had a fantastic stay and would have no hesitation in returning.We met the owners on a couple of occasions who are charming and could not have more obliging if we needed assistance .with anything.
Hi John, Thanks for taking the time to leave your review and also your positive comments. Thanks also, for booking for another 2-months next year. I'm sure you will enjoy our other apartment just as much. All the best and see you in the New Year! Andy & Beata.
Lovely apartment in wonderful Estepona
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Marina Bay. The apartment was very nice and in a great location. There is a great choice of restaurants and supermarkets nearby and the beach is beautiful. The only things we weren’t happy about were the air conditioning unit (which is on its last legs and took up to an hour in the evening to work properly after lots of attempts) and we were disappointed with the pool which doesn’t get the sun on it properly until 1pm. We have two young children who had hoped to be in the pool all day but unfortunately that wasn’t possible as it was far too cold.
Thank you for your comments and feedback. I'm sorry to hear that we weren't able to give you the usual 5 star experience. Unfortunately, we were only made aware of the issues with the air conditioning upon departure. Had these been raised earlier then we would of course had the engineer visit to inspect the unit much earlier as it had only been serviced 3 weeks prior. Also, there are two pools at Marina Bay which do get the sun at slightly different times of the day, just in case you would like to visit us again. All the best. Andy.
UPDATE: The air-conditioning system has since been replaced (at the end of August 2018) .
Superbly equipped, everything you could need and more.
Hi Brian, Thanks for the review and for the FIVE STARS! All the best, Andy.
Marina Bay is an easy five minute walk from the heart of Estepona's thriving marina and is ideally situated directly overlooking Cristo Beach which is a delightful oyster-shaped cove of sheltered, gently shelving sand making it ideal for children. The beach has been awarded EC Blue Flag status and in high season is manned by lifeguards. It also has well maintained toilet and shower facilities and a choice of two beach restaurants with a true Spanish feel. Within 5 minutes walk you will find several supermarkets and shops. Estepona Town is typically Spanish and has retained all of it's 'pueblo' charm even though it is a well established tourist destination. It has pleasantly managed to avoid a 'night club' culture but does have a wide variety of restaurants & cafe bars to chose from. Estepona, due to its natural environment, surrounded by the surrounded by the sea and Sierra Bermeja mountains, enjoys a micro climate providing over 325 days of sunshine per year and lovely mild winters!
