The new metro is around the corner and the buses are regular and inexpensive, that is if you wish to leave the area. The longer we stayed, the more we preferred just squiffing around the neighbor. It became more fulfilling than rushing into old town to sit with all the other English and Americans. The apartment is less than 10 minutes walk from the bus and train stations. Great news if you wish to take day trips out of town. The apartment is serviced by all the major supermarkets: Aldi, SuperSol, Lidl, Mercado and dozens upon dozens of small markets. There is a regular fish market within three minutes of the apartment. Oh, and a weekly farmer's market. The apartment is on the third floor of a nine story, quiet tower. It is well appointed, exceptionally clean and comfortable. It is in fact the largest apartment we have ever rented in Spain. But the real joy is to be found in the hosts: Katie and Jose. Usually hosts disappear like snow off a ditch after giving you the keys, but Katie and Jose are special, very, very special. I feel safe in saying we've never had such engaging and attentive hosts. Yet, we never felt intruded upon. It was Christmas and Katie had decorated the apartment for us. Lovely touch. And the day before Christmas, she and Jose arrived with a hamper they'd made up just for us. So Sweet. Advice and tips were dispensed within seconds of texting or calling. They anticipated our needs at every turn. It was great knowing they were at the other end of the phone and really cared that we enjoyed ourselves. We are already planning a return visit. Urban Spain at its best.

Our stay really could not have been better. It started with a warm welcome by Jesus and we quickly settled in to the clean ,very well equiped apartment. The locaion is perfect for getting around ,central but relatively quiet. We slept extremely well due to the comfortable bed and enjoyed cooking a few meals as well as taking full avantage of the great local restaurants and bars. Our stay included a Sunday so we were able to take advantage of the free entry at some of the museums which was a bonus. We very much look forward to returning to this apartment in the future.

The apartment is amazing, very clean, modern with lovely features and great outdoor spaces. It is only a short taxi ride from Malaga airport and is very well situated, within walking distance of the beautiful squares full of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes and probably about half an hour away on foot from the Marina which is stunning! We were very lucky with the weather and I would recommend a Segway tour of the city which is a great way to enjoy the sunshine and see the best views of the city from high above. After a full day in the sun it was lovely to come back to the apartment and enjoy a few drinks up on the rooftop terrace in the jacuzzi and take in the impressive views. Will definitely return!
