Just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed our stay! Nick (Aug)


We had an AMAZING holiday in the apartment. We came there to chill, explore when we wanted to, read when we wanted to, eat and drink when we wanted to and we achieved them all!!! From the moment you walk through the door the place has quality written all over it and you must find the amount of jaw dropping expressions quite funny by now. Three weeks is unusual for us but we really felt that we could have stayed (or lived) there for much longer. We take several 2 week hols a year but it is unusual to find somewhere that you really could live in as most are geared up for quick holiday hits and will lack the ‘comforts of home’ that are essential in the longer term (particularly in the kitchen). You have obviously gone that extra mile to provide your customers with the comforts needed for a special holiday. The location proved totally convenient to the Marina and the grounds of your property are immaculate. Probably the winner for us was the view from the balcony both day and night. You are probably aware that the timing of our stay was to celebrate my 50th birthday and that is why our family flew out for the four days. They have different priorities to us but their adjectives included awsome, fab, fantastic so again this makes it clear that you have covered all bases. It was great to have met you and another (the last) point would be that we felt that you introduced yourselves and then retired quietly into the background but we knew that we could contact you if need be. We like to be left alone and not fussed over so again you got the balance right. Many thanks for everything. Paul and Sue (Jul)


Great spot within easy reach of good food and beer. Wonderful week – Thank you. Peter (Mar)


* Fabulous Apartment. 6 Fantastic weeks. Home from Home. Lovely Family. Thanks for everything – we will be back. Ron and Cath (Jan / Feb)


We have been renting in the South of Spain for quite a few years now, and have found this little gem to be one of the best! Alan, Elaine and JoJo (Dec)


Lovely welcome, fab apartment. Everything as per website and more! Beach and restaurants excellent – Could live here! Fab weather – one of our best holidays. The Dodds (Oct)


* A fabulous apartment with all home comforts and gorgeous weather – will be coming back – Thanks Jeanette (June)


Ab fab! Excellent apartment full of home comforts with add-ons (terrace, sun, etc!). All restaurants excellent, Barry and Jacqui (May)


Just to say thank you for letting us stay in your apartment. The penthouse is lovely and very comfortable. It is ideally situated for the port and we would not hesitate in coming back. Thank you very much for a very enjoyable stay. Many thanks John and Sue (March)


We have had a wonderful 3 weeks in Cabopino, made all the better by your wonderful apartment. I’m sure we will be back. Many thanks Alf and Family (January)


Just a note to thank you for the use of your excellent Cavallino apartment in Cabopino. The apartment & complex were extremely clean, very spacious & had all the amenities you could wish for to enjoy a relaxing break. Small shop, pub & excellent take-away (Cabo-Pizza) located directly behind the complex. Cabopino was a nice quaint port with various restaurants, all of which we found to be of a high standard ( Bruno’s, Giuseppe’s, La Despenzas & Albert’s). Apartment was ideally situated close to bus stops for both directions, east to La Cala & Fuengirola, west to Marbella & these run frequently & are very inexpensive. We would most certainly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to holiday in the Costa del Sol & will return ourselves when holidaying in this area in the future. Thanks again, Alan, Margaret & Francesca (October)


Just to say a big “Thank You” for letting us stay in your wonderful apartment this past week. The accommodation is superb, clean, homely, relaxing and comfortable…. Well I could go on! We hope to come back again in the not too distant future. Many thanks Doris and Roger (October)


Just a quick note to say how much we appreciated the excellent facilities of “Cavallino” . We had a very relaxing holiday and are now ready for the “drag” up to Christmas!! Sorry we did not see you before we left. We would like to return for a week, possibly next September but will contact you at a later date. Once again many thanks, Shirley, Anne and Brian (Sept)


Just a quick e-mail to let you know that we all had 3 great weeks at Cabopino. The apartment was really nice, comfortable, very clean and very well equipped and in a good location to enjoy all that Cabopino has to offer especially the beach and the port. We will recommend our family and friends to contact you for future bookings, and should you ever need a reference you can always contact me. Thank you very much STEVEN & CLAIRE (August)


We spent a great week in your fantastic apartment – Thank you for your hospitality. You have a wonderful apartment and a beautiful terrace with a fantastic view. We come again! Thanks to Cheryl and Paul. Houda and Family (Morocco – August) PS – You are welcome to come and stay with us in Casablanca!


* We have had the BEST time here. What a great apartment and beautiful location, gardens and pool. Thank you Paul for getting the high chair sorted out for our 10 month old – he loved having his breakfast with us on the terrace each morning, laughing at the tame little birds! Same time, same place next year then! Thanks Rachel and Conrad (June)


* Again – a brilliant holiday at the Cavallino apartment! We had a wonderful week and the weather was mostly good to us. Our friends were very impressed with the apartment – how could they not be! It was lovely meeting you both at the Plaza bar, I hope we can do it again soon. Best wishes Dave & Alwyn (April/May)


Thank you very much for renting your apartment in Cabopino! We really enjoyed the apartment and your kind service. We have already recommended the apartment to colleagues and friends. Siri (Norway – May)


A fantastic two weeks – our first time in Spain. The apartment and location were better than we had imagined. We will be back. Thanks Paul and Cheryl. The Taylors (April)


Just a note to say thank you for your beautiful apartment for the week and for your hospitality. We found it to be very comfortable and well equipped and a great place to stay. The harbour and restaurants were first class and the apartment was ideally suited to explore the coast. I even managed a trip out of Gibraltar on a friend’s 43′ yacht! We would like to stay again if that is acceptable and will be back in touch with you. Best Regards Dougie and Tracey (March)


Exceptionally spacious and peaceful apartment, and Cabopino is a great place from which to explore the Costa Del Sol. We Loved Ronda and Los Pueblos Blancos (the white villages), Nerja and Frigliana, and El Torcal National Park was incredible. Tammy and Steven (Feb)


Lovely stay and enjoyed your apartment. Thanks for your patience on our ‘delayed’ arrival – We’ll use a different hire car company next time! Paul and Linda (Feb)


Sorry for the delay, but we were so busy from the moment we got home safely after our beautiful time in Cabopino and in your apartment. We all enjoyed living in your apartment for 1 week, enjoyed the beautiful weather and Cabopino. We will certainly come back. If you ever know of an apartment in the same complex as yours, that is for sale, you always can let us know. Many thanks, Josee (Belgium – January)


We’ve been back almost a week now but wish we were still there. The apartment was lovely! After staying in accommodation booked with a tour operator your apartment was massive. The only problem – we didn’t have enough time to spend in the apartment because we wanted to see different places in the area and in the evenings we were eating out at different restaurants with our friends. The apartment was ideally situated as you said for us to meet up with our friends who were staying on the camp site. Some other friends were also staying in Elvira. We all loved Cabopino, the trees and greenness seemed lovely there after holidaying in The Canaries and Greece where everything had been so barren, and look forward to returning when its not such hot weather so that we can see some of the places we didn’t get to see this time. We enjoyed eating at Javiers and Giuseppe’s in the evenings and breakfast at Albert’s. Andy’s bar was great for an after dinner sangria and to enjoy the entertainment. Thanks for everything. Lesley (August)


* We had a great time down in Spain and the apartment was superb as usual. …the idea of renting the flat for three or maybe four weeks next year IE our normal weeks plus one or two or an extra week ‘fore and aft’ so to speak? In short Paul please put aside the usual two weeks anyway, let me know about the extra weeks and if this is possible. Alan (July)


Just a brief note to let you know how much we enjoyed your apartment and, as always, Cabopino. The weather has been fabulous the whole time and we haven’t seen a cloud, let alone rain, so our return to the UK has been somewhat of a shellshock! The air conditioning was consequently fabulous and the apartment extremely well equipped and comfortable. Having enthused to my parents about your place and who adore Cabopino, I am confident that we may well book again in the Spring. Thanks again for the opportunity of renting your apartment and good luck with your villa and plans. Should you ever consider selling the apartment, please do let us know! Regards Lynda and David (July)


Wonderful Apartment, Wonderful Restaurants, Wonderful Weather, We will use this apartment again! Ronald (July)

* We have just come back after a fabulous fortnight at your Cavallino apartment. We were all extremely impressed with the apartment, the photographs just don’t do it justice, the space and facilities were just amazing. Cabopino is a lovely picturesque place and the surrounding areas magnificent. We would love to stay again, perhaps some time next year. Thanks very much for letting us stay, I wouldn’t want to share the apartment with anyone if it were ours! Best Wishes Alwyn & Dave (June)


David and I just though we’d drop you a line to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at Cavallino Penthouse and how sorry we were to leave, the 5 weeks flew by. It also was very nice to meet you both. If your apartment is available in September let us know, we’d be delighted to spend another 4/5 weeks there. Best wishes Estelle and David (May)


Just a brief note of thanks for the use of the apartment in Spain earlier this month. We were stunned by the amount of space we had. The terraces were a pleasure and we enjoyed numerous meals out there on the balmy summer nights while watching the boats on the Med. Cabopino was a lovely place, exactly as you had described it. I will contact you later in the year to discuss a long term winter rental and we will certainly be back! Best regards Julie D. (July)


I am just writing to let you know what a lovely time my Sister and I had in your penthouse apartment last week. We were both looking forward to a relaxing break and neither of us were disappointed. Thank you for the complimentary wine, it went down very well on our arrival at the apartment. Thank you again for a thoroughly enjoyable stay and I will certainly recommend your apartment to friends and family. Yours sincerely Karen C. (June)


Just a quick message to say thank you for the use of the apartment, it was a very pleasant place to stay. The kids enjoyed the holiday as did my wife. Thankfully we had quite reasonable weather (NB December!) which made the stay even better. Thanks again. Regards Steve G. (December)
