"After previous dealings in Estepona, we found Trevor not only helpful , but honest and a pleasure to do business with. Not pushy in the least and a great advertisement for his business. We both look upon him as a friend now and even though the sale went through 4 months ago, he is still always available for advice and help with our purchase at Alcazaba Beach".

"We have known Trevor and Jelga for 6 years now, which is when we purchased our first apartment in Estepona. To buy and furnish an apartment in another country is extremely stressful, however with the help and guidance from Trevor and Jelga, this made the process far easier. The professional service we received 6 years ago resulted in us purchasing a our second apartment two years later. Trevor and Jelga are not just business acquaintances, we regard them both as our friends.
Estepona is one of the most sought after locations on the Costa Del Sol and has retained its Spanish heritage. With pretty plaza's, great restaurants and award winning beaches Estepona is ideal for couples and families.

"Particularly easy to have people to guide you in the purchase of a property in Spain. Who can assist and guide you through the "Spanish system", especially if you don´t speak the Spanish language sufficiently. Jelga and Trevor are also there for once you are already "settled" and still have questions or need their help. Their involvement continues and you can always count on them.
We highly recommended them to anyone considering to buy a home or vacation home in the Estepona area..

""About our contacts with Jelga and Trevor we can be brief. Also, in fact, long... As there would be a lot of nice words we could say about these special people. But to briefly summarize: We could not have wished for better, warmer, more professional and more reliable people in Estepona. Thanks to their guidance we look back at a fantastic time in Estepona! "

"Jelga and Trevor are people who have assisted us in every possible way during our house search in Estepona.
Not only to find the best location or house for us, but also with many other things that come with it, such as a lawyer, notary, bank, furniture, curtains, etc.
They have shown us what there is to do in and around Estepona (restaurants, events, nature etc.). The whole package. Should there be a next time we will certainly use their services again.

"Brenda and myself first met Trevor in 2008. We had a bad experience with a large property company and then got involved with Trevor. We found Trevor very helpful showing us property always to our specification. The service was very personal and was more than just showing property. We purchased with Trevor late 2008 and since that time Trevor has given us help and support. We would highly recommend Trevor and in fact we have done several times.

"We were planning to buy an apartment abroad and by chance we discoverd Estepona. We came in contact with Jelga Akkerman via the internet. We had told her what our needs were, after which she send us various apartments by email.
In January 2009, we went on a first house search visit to Estepona and then again for Easter. At that time we made our choice and bought a beautiful penthouse in the port of Estepona.
The purchase was guided by Jelga and Trevor, and we were very satisfied with the service. For anything we needed or for any questions we had we could always rely on them. Once you purchase an apartment you encounter many practical issues, such as key management, maintenance, problem solving, decorating etc. Via Jelga we got into contact with professional and reliable people, who we are very happy with. You can always count on them and they always try to help you.
Therefore, if you consider buying a second home in Estepona do not hesitate and contact Jelga Akkerman and Trevor Reavill at Estepona Living!

Even afterwards she is willing to advice you on many things in Estepona area and gives you valuable tips on the environment, events and restaurants etc. She also gives you information about other people and businesses you may need.
To summarize: you are far away from home, but she makes you feel at home again!

"We have known Jelga and Trevor for about 8 years now, and got to know them as very amiable, enthusiastic and reliable people. Whatever you are asking them, there will always be accurate and friendly response.
In short: Service at its best!
We also believe Estepona is still one of the best seaside towns, especially given that the town centre is still so authentically Spanish. The long boulevard can certainly compete with Marbella and it is a pleasure to walk there and have something to drink or eat.
We got to know Jelga and Trevor as friendly, enthusiastic and reliable people. Whatever you are asking them, there will always be an accurate and friendly response.

Estepona immediately appealed to me when I arrived for the first time… only a few years ago. No mass tourism and no loud music or streets full of bars and discotheques. Estepona has a nice town centre with excellent and affordable restaurants, for a delightful breakfast, extended lunch or dinner.Home cooking is not necessary, although also easy as there are sufficient large supermarkets around in Estepona.
Because Estepona is a stretched out town, and there is plenty to see in the environment, it is practical to hire a car. You can reserve a car over the Internet and easily collect it on arrival at Malaga airport.
Most importantly, the climate is great; never too hot and sunny most of the time. Back in Northern Europe I really miss Estepona and I will visit Estepona for many years to come. In short, a great place to go on holiday, with something to do for everyone. Sun, sea, beach, water sports, culture, gastronomy and not to forget the heavenly Spanish wines.
Enough now about Estepona as it is not my intention for everyone to go to Estepona because of my story! Then my the peace will be gone and I won´t be able to dream peacefully under my favourite palmtrees by the pool… Making plans of where to have dinner that evening… !
Estepona instantly appealed to me when I discovered it only a few years ago; a great place with something to offer to everyone!
From the first moment I met Interior Designer Erwin Hamming-Schott to furnish our holiday apartment in the South of Spain, a large burden was taken of our shoulders. It gave us lots of inspiration and energy to create something special.
Because we wanted to rent apartment we needed practical and good quality furniture, but also a ' home ' in Spain. Erwin understood this perfectly. The result is very stylish, and suits our personalities very well. The apartment is a very popular rental apartement and people come back each year because they feel at home in the ambiance and with the furniture.
Erwin actually saved us a great deal of time, money, and concerns. We would have taken a long time to find good ideas and furniture and make certain choices. Erwin knew exactly what would be best for us. With the good assistance and advice of Jelga, Trevor and Erwin, the rest was easy! As a result, is now pure enjoyment!

We are in our sixties and decided about 10 years ago to search for a nice sunny place to spend time regularly when we were older. After searching throughout Spain we fell in love with the beautiful real Spanish fishing town of Estepona. We found an apartment in a new urbanization in the Estepona Marina.
In 2009 we started looking for something else. We contacted Trevor, with whom we had had some pleasant dealings in the past. Coincidently he had a beautiful first line penthouse apartment for sale close to the beautiful Playa Christo Bay, with a nie seaviews towards the rock of Gibraltar.
Trevor has assisted us in a discrete and professional manner; exactly what you need in negociations and dealings to purchase a property. Finally, thanks to all Trevors efforts, we came to a deal, which we were very pleased with.
Also, Trevor has guided us to very good work people to assist us in some refurbishments, who we are very happy with. Also we have had good advice from Interior Designer Erwin Hamming-Schott. Trevor then also assisted in the sale of our old apartment in the port. A sale was soon made and everything went through quickly and successfully.
In short, Trevor deserves a large compliment and we would recommended him for all your real estate business in the Estepona area. He is reliable, accurate, and very knowledgeable in his business. We are very happy with our new place in Estepona!

We are keen to write something about the great urbanization on the beach in Estepona, where we became the proud owners of a beautiful penthouse apartment in 2007.
We are therefore prepared to act as a reference for your business to convey our enthusiasm. Through your great commitment and warm reception we felt at home immediately. You were always there for us when we had questions and difficulties, also in understanding the various Spanish systems and organizations. Our children and grand children are also very enthusiastic and have already enjoyed many holidays with us in Estepona.
Thanks to meeting you it felt like a "hot bath".
