Peaceful Holiday Getaway
This is a lovely two bedroom apartment, catering for all your needs. I visited with my sister, my daughter and her friend. There is room for another two people in the lounge area, in the form of a futon. The apartment was very clean, plenty of towels, including some beach towels, shampoo, shower gel so you don't have to worry about carrying this on the aircraft with weight restrictions. The kitchen has a cooker, washing machine, including washing up liquid, and washing powder, and a few extra essentials for catering. Outside there is a balcony that both bedrooms and the lounge have access to, and lovely to sit on in the evening sun. This overlooks the pool and the sea in the distance. From the balcony you can access the roof terrace, here you will find chairs, a lounger, barbecue, parasols. There is a supermarket which is about a 5 minute walk from the apartment, and being in a very Spanish area, very reasonably priced. We found a lovely beach, small, quaint, and very private, but it has 134 steps leading down to it, so one does have to climb back up! The beach is about a 15/20 minute walk, but I enjoyed the exercise. The apartment has a shared pool, and when we visited in September, found we were normally the only ones in it. This again has steps leading down, so if you had difficulty with mobility you may find this a problem. There is a bus from a nearby hotel (about 15 minute walk) that takes you into Benalmadena Costa, which is where you will find lots of restaurants, and night life, plus the marina. The bus cost 1.45 euros. it also takes you to Torremolinos, Fuengirola, and Marbella. We sometimes caught the bus into Benalmadena, but then walked home, being cooler it was a nice leisurely form of exercise and took us about 50 minutes, and that was in high heels. Pedro the owner is a very lovely man and most helpful. If you require anything extra he will endeavour to supply it for you. If you want to hire a car for your stay, and I do recommend this if you don't like walking or want to get out and about and visit more places, there is a garage provided for parking too. I decided not to hire a car because I just wanted to relax and not go anywhere for my week long stay. I would most definitely stay here again, and loved the tranquility of the place.
Owner's Response: Gracias por su comentario. Este año a los inquilinos le damos una llave para que por la piscina puedan acceder más rapidamente a la playa. Realmente son 5 min.
Thanks for your comment. We give a key to the renters to go to the beach though the swimming pool gardens. It is the faster access to the beach. They really are 5 min.
We are upgrading with your coments.
