If you get delayed, please send an SMS to Chris informing him on the delay.

Different locks/Keys

NB! Never close the front door with the key in the lock on the inside when leaving the apartment. If this happens, the door cannot be opened with a key from the outside and in the worst case, the lock must be drilled and replaced.

NB! The key to the front door must always be turned all the way around to be properly locked. You should do this both day and night, whether you are in the apartment or not.

NB! The door to the terrace is also a snap lock, so be careful, there is no key on the outside.

Various keys to the apartment and pool can be found in the hallway by the front door.

Key box by the apartment

A keybox has been installed outside the main gate to La Joya, which exclusively belongs to the apartment in La Joya C-1B. The box is located to the left of the main gate, see photos:


In the keybox there are three keys:

     1. Main key to the apartment. To be kept in the apartment during your stay and to be put back on departure.

     2. Key to the main gate / car gate. Never remove this key from the box, to be put back immediately after use.

     3. Key to the door in the main gate. Never remove this key from the box, to be put back immediately after use.

Check that all three keys are in place in the key box on arrival and on departure.

In case of deviation please immediately notice Chris Wouters +34 692 127 370

Transport

There are four different ways to get from the airport to the apartment:

1 Public taxi Taxi right on the outside. Say you're going to Club la Costa, we have a special deal. Price approx. €70 one way
2 Private taxi Call (+34) 952 666 335 - (Martin & Jose) Mail: majo3@casema.nl
3 Train/bus Train/bus to Fuengirola, bus or taxi the last part of the trip
4 Rental car Easy access to airport car hire.
Remember, pre-book a car before you leave. (A suggestion: www.carjet.com)

The easiest way to get to the apartment is undoubtedly by taxi or rental car.

During your stay

  • Respect the rules of order in the area (See information on Inside).
  • Always lock the front door both when you are at home or away. Remember to turn the key, only then is the door locked.
  • Always lock the patio doors at night, and when you leave the apartment during the day. Remember to push in the locking pins.
  • Turn off the AC system and all the lights when you are not in the apartment.
  • The main tap for the water is in the "shed" with entrance from the kitchen.
  • Always have the windows fully open in the "outer shed" when the AC unit is on
  • The blackout curtains must always be down at night and when the apartment is empty at day.
  • The awnings should always be rolled in when it is blowing, at night or when leaving the apartment. Children should not play with the motorized blinds.
  • Make sure that there is no chair or other object next to the sliding doors on the outside of the terrace when lowering the blinds. This will prevent the blackout curtains from going down naturally and damaging them. (Important!)

Location

The La Joya urbanization is located just south of Fuengirola and about 30 km south of Malaga and the airport. The area is situated at a small height just a few hundred meters from the beach and consists of five blocks surrounded by a very nice outdoor area with two large pools and a small children's pool. The area is very well organized for both children and adults, it is very quiet and always neat and clean everywhere. The field is fenced in on all sides and both intercom and surveillance cameras are installed. The apartment is facing south-east, with a secluded little garden/lawn and with a great view of the sea.

Right outside Club la Costa towards the north is a nice hiking area.

You can find a large album with photos and maps here.

Map

The beach

There is a nice beach just below the complex. It only takes three to four minutes to walk down there. The shortest way is the gate through the enclosure between blocks C and D (just below our block). The beach is relatively close to the road above, but due to the height difference, traffic noise is not a problem when you are down on the beach.

Due to a cliff protruding into the sea further north, you cannot walk on the beach contiguously towards Fuengirola without having to take a short detour up to the road and down again. The underpass referred to in the paragraph above comes out north of this cliff. On the beach, there is a cozy restaurant that is full-service and also sells ice cream and various refreshments.

There is a lifeguard on this beach.

Groceries and shopping centers

There are several shops and kiosks selling food nearby.

Just north-west of our urbanization, there is an Indian restaurant and grocery store that is open every day of the week until 23.00. You can walk or drive up there by driving past the Safari hotel just above the apartment and then onto Avenue Noruega. The road is shown on the satellite image.

There is also a small grocery store down the main road to the northeast at the lower end of CLC's area as well as a couple of mini markets. The small train takes you to all the small shops within CLC's area.

The nearest major shopping center, Miramar, is located between La Joya and Fuengirola.

See the maps in the photo album. Link in the location section.

Restaurants

Just above La Joya there are two great restaurants serving both indoors and outdoors. The restaurants are surrounded by beautiful parks and there is live music every night. There are also several other restaurants in the Club La Costa’s area that are worth visiting.

In addition to the restaurant down on the seafront (just below the apartment), there is a great restaurant (and a few smaller restaurants) in the urbanization of El Faro.

Rules of procedure for La Joya

There are not many ground rules at the facility, but there are a few things to be aware of.

By the swimming pool, you will find an overview of the rules that apply to the facility. Here you should note the following:

Clothes should not be dried “visible to others”. This means that you should not hang clothes over the railing on the terrace.

Meals are not to be consumed by the swimming pool.

Loud music can be annoying to others and should be avoided.

The swimming pool shall not be used late at night or early in the morning. However, if one wants to use the pool outside the “opening hours” this is allowed granted the usage is quiet and does not disturb the neighbors.
