About Kimberley Stone

I am currently living in Colchester in Essex. I work as a Physiotherapist and I don't get to Spain as often as id like, because of my work commitments. When i did have more time I use to spend long holidays in the apartment, which is why you will find the apartment home from home.

Kimberley Stone purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Kimberley Stone chose Elviria

I love El Soto because of the great location and the facilities in the area. Fantastic beaches, loads of great golf courses as well as bars and restaurants. Internet availability. There is something for everyone here. The local malaga airport is only 40 minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

This luxurious apartment is located in a sunny location on top of a hill, by a beautifal lake, with fantastic views over the mountians and sea. The apartments in the complex enjoy a number of shared facilities such as a 9 hole par 3 golf course, putting green, beautiful gardens, several swimming pools, paddling pool, tennis and a childrens play ground.

There is a golf club on the complex, which is where the main reception is, as well as a bar, sauna, gym, jacuzzi and club house. All these facilities you can use free of charge during your stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from a luxurious relaxing week with my husband staying in this lovely apartment in El Soto De Marbella. The apartment was beautiful even better than the photos very spacious and and well equipped. It had every thing you would expect at home plus a little more. My husband was happy he had a good reliable wifi connection.

We found booking easy and Kimberley (the owner) replied promptly to all emails and returned our deposit promptly.

Elsoto is set in lovely well maintained gardens, with access to six pools, a 9 hole golf course - and a excellent club house which you can walk to across the golf course. The restaurant in the club house serves reasonably priced food and has good entertainment.

We found lots to do whilst we were there. I would definitely recommend renting a car for the visit as the apartment is not a walkable distance to the beach or main shopping area. By car it's a 10 minute drive to the beach, lots of great restaurants and obviously l

Superb apartment in a superb complex. Perfect summer holiday accommodation for a family of four

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fabulous two week stay in Kimberley’s clean, modern, comfortable, well equipped and spacious two bedroom apartment in the excellent El Soto complex.

Fully equipped kitchen, large and comfortable bedrooms, a lovely dining, lounge and TV area and a perfect outdoor dining area backing onto neat gardens with great views.

Three of El Soto’s fabulous pools, all set in beautifully presented gardens, are within two minutes walk of the apartment.

Lovely (free) informal pitch and put golf course with comfortable clubhouse providing good food, a basic gym and tennis.

Car is essential. El Soto complex is an 8-10 minutes drive up a windy road into the Elviria hills. Drive appears long and never ending with tight bends at first - but soon becomes second nature after a couple of journeys and actually quite fun, especially on the way down!

Good choice of good quality restaurants and a couple of small supermarkets in Elviria town at the bottom of the hill just off the main coastal road.

Recommend the extra 2 minutes drive out of Elviria along the main coastal road to the nearby Lidl for stocking up.

Elviria beach (home to the Nikki Beach club) is nice but other local beaches are wider with better selection of shops, bars, kiosks and restaurants. Highly recommend the 20 minutes drive to Puerto Banus beach for beach days.

Marbella old town and La Canada mall an easy 10 minutes drive.

Highly recommend this property. Perfect for us as a family of four with two adult children. Hotel standard double sink en suite bathrooms to each bedroom particularly welcome after recent family holidays sharing a single hotel bathroom.

Thanks very much to Kimberley for being so helpful and for the use of her lovely apartment!

Beautiful holiday apartment in the hills near Elvira

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment - home away from home, this has everything you could possibly need. Stunning views and the pools are close to the apartment. Kimberley was a pleasure to deal with. Food in the clubhouse is excellent and staff were very friendly. Town is about 10 mins drive - this really is in a great location to explore the Costa del sol. Would highly recommend this lovely apartment.

Beautiful gardens and views. Well equipped apartment and would definitely return.

  • 5 of 5

We were a bit daunted by the drive up the mountain but you soon get used to it and it isn't as far as you first think. The views and the apartment are worth it. The complex is beautiful, lovely gardens and swimming pools. Spotlessly clean and lovely surrounding areas to explore.

Lovely comfortable apartment, our hostess couldn't do enough to make our stay more enjoyable. The complex has good facilities with a challenging little golf course, also excellent gym and great restaurant. Would recommend and will hopefully go back.

Lovely apartment in El Soto

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous apartment within the El Soto complex up in the hills of Elviria. Excellent instructions led us to the complex where we were warmly welcomed by Vicky who gave us all the necessary information to allow us a very relaxed holiday. The apartment has everything you need to have a wonderful break. All the pools are within walking distance but checking out the surrounding area requires a car as Elviria and all other popular spots are down the hill. However being up high allows a great view of both the surrounding mountains and the sea. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment for a great holiday.

Lovely apartment with great leisure facilities

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay, Kimberley sent very detailed directions from the airport and her representative was waiting for us on arrival. Apartment was clean and well equipped, complex very quiet and peaceful, not many people in May. 9 hole par 3 golf course well maintained and great to improve the short game. Gym well equipped and bar and restaurant excellent value. Short drive to many golf courses in the area. If you wanted a night out there were many good restaurants in the town, about a 10 minute drive down the mountain. A car is essential. Lovely views and for us the peace and quiet outweighed the need for a car. We will definitely return, for longer next time!
