It is a 10 minute walk away from the city centre and 30 from the beach. The apartment has an air conditioning unit in the living room but only plug in units in the bedrooms making them very warm during summer nights. The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen but extra linen could do with being provided to allow cleaning. Would recommend for a long stay in Malaga.

Katie kept in touch by both email and Whatsapp around she couldn't have made our travel arrangements any easier. On arrival and throughout our stay she kept us well informed of what was available close by and any travel requirements we might of had. The apartment was very well equipped and and once we became familiar with the metro and bus routes it was very easy to get to any part of Malaga without any bother. Big thanks to Katie and Jose for making our stay very pleasant indeed.
