Great spacious apartment, on the beach, fantastic

5 of 5
Rented the apartment for 10 days over the easter period, and it was perfect. It is a large two bedroom apartment, about 30 feet from the beach. Was just lovely to be so close to the beach and just take in the sound of the waves. Two large bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 ensuite). Kitchen is great as well. Nice and clean, full of utensils, whatever you need. There are two small supermarkets close by (5 mins walk) to buy anything you need, however i just used the apartment as a base, as i was driving around alot (ironically property hunting), so i dropped into Carrefour and Mirimar in Fuengirola for a couple of larger shops. Parking was easy. You can park inside the complex about 30 feet from the front door. Easter weekend was obviously busier, but after that, there was plenty of space. There is a large outdoor pool, and an indoor pool, as well as the beach. If you are there with children, they will be spoiled for choice. Communications from Deborah were great, no issues. Would easily recommend and rent again. Thanks Dean

5 of 5
Peaceful and tranquil location. A real home from home. James provided a taxi service to and from airport which was really handy. Andrew was so helpful in arranging our holiday. We loved it so much we have booked to stay again later this year. There can be no better recommendation from us than that! Thank you Andrew.
