The Community and Surrounding Areas

This quiet residential beachfront community with manicured tropical gardens and two swimming pools comprises apartments and town houses of excellent quality construction in the traditional Andalusian style “pueblo blanco”. Assigned parking space is available.

The location is convenient to the new highway, 50 min. drive from the Malaga airport and only 20 min. drive to Marbella or Gibraltar. A few minutes away by car is Puerto Deportivo of Estepona (the Marina) and just a few kilometers away is the historic center of Estepona where you can enjoy exquisite dining and nightlife. There are several great restaurants within a 10-minute walk. Two five-star hotels, featuring health spas, shops, restaurants, white sandy beaches with lounges and umbrellas, and much more, are also within walking distance from the apartment. Other activities in the area include: golf, sailing, deep-sea fishing, windsurfing, dolphin watching, horse riding, safari, nature parks, museums, historic sites, etc. A convenience store located within a 10-minute walk is open 24/7.

The ubiquitous festivals (fiestas) are more than likely to occur somewhere nearby during your stay in Estepona since Andalusian cities and towns celebrate over 3,000 fiestas each year. You may also enjoy such typically Spanish art forms as flamenco and corrida. Please come and treat yourself to this unique colorful and festive ambiance of Estepona and what an unforgettable experience it will be!

we would like to say what a great time we had at your apartment ,the photo’s do not give it justice, everything you need and more. The pool fab and compliments to miguel and his wife for keeping the grounds pristine. we respect the place we were staying in as our own .julie is well impressed as its nice to hear her repeating it so many times to family and friends. It makes a nice change ha ha ! truly made her week an everlasting one to remember.
we visited gibraltar great views and history and them monkeys. also visited mijas lovely place drove up the longest way’ up the other side of mountain and down to it. nerja was nice to visit as we had been there 6yrs ago and seen some changes.
Though the stress’s of driving left hand side and the opposite side of the road and missing turns and ending up the wrong way .we had to laugh some times and those toll roads I think I have bought my own piece of tarmac”.
but looking back an experience to remember and to end our days out’ relaxing in privacy and lovely surroundings.

All though a little isolated , I would advise car hire to any one .to fully appreciate the true potential your apartment has to offer with regards to food supplies restaurants and other places to adventure..
we will highly recommend this apartment to everyone. ‘ holidays’ are what you make out of them, and this place is a great start.
may i make a suggestion as an extra option with additional cost..that it would be a nice touch if may be you could organise some milk .a few beers and a bottle of wine in fridge as a welcome pack .as we arrived 11pm and no idea of amenities,

all the best boris
thanks for the privilege

colin & julie



Hi Boris,

Just want to inform you that we really enjoy your “getaway”
Everything is fine and working!
The weather is great, only sunshine so far.

My vodaphone mobile connect card works just fine from your apartment!

That´s all for now

Best Regards,




We were very reluctant as this was our first visit to Spain and our first ever self-catering holiday and we absolutely loved it. We had the beach and pool all to ourselves, the weather was fantastic and the apartment had everything we needed and more (i.e. toys and books for Josh). There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets around and the “playground” at the beachfront is fantastic.

We will definitely contact you again to visit Estepona.

Many thanks,

Sean, Petra and Josh



A very well appointed appartment and very fully equipped; everything was very clean, all of which led to a comfortable stay. The view from the lounge window, of the garden and the sea, is most attractive. Although there are no shops or restaurants that can be reached on foot, Estepona is only a very easy 3km drive away. Estepona is quite an attractive town with numerous shops and cafes. The marina and port are great areas for relaxation. On the whole, a very enjoyable experience.

We are in our last week at the Dancing Parrot in Estepona. The weather has turned warm and sunny, the last of our guests has left, and we are preparing to return to the US. We have had a great time here, and have enjoyed the
condo and living in Spain a great deal. From the perspective of long-term renters, Bonnie really enjoyed the
well-equipped kitchen. The appliances are all of good quality and work well. We are trying to leave the place in at least as good shape as we found it.


Leigh B. (Chestershire, UK), Aug. 04:
Wanted to write to say thank you for the use of your apartment.  We had a wonderful stay.


John H. (Manchester, UK), Sep. 04:
We had a great 2 weeks and we all agreed that the apartment was wonderful and everything we hoped it would be. We would happily recommend it to any of our friends!

Property: Casa Del Loro Bailador
Date of swap: Thu – 19 Sep 13, 2013

Was the accommodation as you expected, and as described?
The apartment is in a lovely area with gorgeous gardens, pool area and so close to the beach. The beach is fantastic with a top class hotel nearby, perfect for a walk and refreshments. A car would be needed if you stayed longer but we were only there for a long weekend so we managed by walking and taxis.
Rating: 9/10

Was the accommodation clean?
The apartment was very clean, comfortable and well stocked. The larger balcony is perfect for dining and sunbathing, the smaller one has great views of the pool area and the sea.
Rating: 10/10

Was the owner helpful and communicative?
The owner answered every email I sent very quickly and was very helpful.
Rating: 10/10

Was there anything you were unhappy about? – No
Nothing to do with the apartment but when we wanted to walk to the supermarket, there was no pavement along the road so it was a bit of an adventure getting there.

Would you recommend the property as a good exchange? – Yes
I was very impressed by the location in general and would love to return in the future. It is a lovely part of Spain. The weather was fantastic and the property was a very good size.
