Casa Christabel y Casa Annabel
Mi Jardin, Benalmadena
Casa Christabel and Casa Annabel are set in the beautifully landscaped and tranquil Mi Jardin, which has the atmosphere of a Spanish pueblo and was carefully constructed in a traditional Andalusian style. There is a lovely communal pool, which is fully enclosed for safety, and is open from 1st March until 31st October and from 1000 – 2100 ( in July and August this is extended until 2200).
I am a retired midwife and I foster teenagers that are homeless or leaving care. I enjoy caring for pregnant teenagers and often have mother and baby placements. I have been married to Gary, a civil engineer for 32 years. My eldest daughter Lauren is a community midwife who lives and works in Oxford and my youngest daughter Lydia is at university in London studying sport and exercise rehabilitation.

The beautiful blue flag Carvajal beach with its highly recommended Spanish churinguito Kalifato and usual water sports, is a 15-minute walk away. Please note that it is a 20-minute walk back as it is uphill. Why not treat yourself to a swim in the lovely pool on your way home?
It is a 20-minute walk (uphill) to the bus stops, shops, pavement cafes, bars and the recommended Indian restaurant Nirvana. Aldi is only a further 5 minutes walk away (or 5 minutes and around €5 in an Uber taxi). Casa Christabel is only 3km from Benalmadena Pueblo and 7.5km from Mijas Pueblo. It is a 20-minute walk to the Carvajal train station (or 5 minutes and around 5e in and Uber taxi) which provides easy access to Fuengirola, Benalmadena, the airport and Malaga city centre. Trains run every 20 minutes, the journey to the airport takes just under 30 minutes and costs just over 2 euros! The station is inside the terminal, (please note when booking you flights that the train stops running between 2330 and 0530), however a taxi will cost around 35 euros. Airport transfers can be arranged on your behalf from 30 euros. A car is therefore not necessary however it would be an advantage if you like to explore. Free communal parking is available. Please note that there are steps down to the property so it may not be suitable for those with walking difficulties.
