Incredibly high spec, everything was brand new and top quality. The kitchen was beautiful and well equipped. The view was spectacular! Even better than the photographs! The best view I have ever had in any apartment. Waking up to the sound of the sea on your doorstep was something very special - it was almost like being on a boat. We went for a quick swim before breakfast every day. The location is great - most people stay in Malaga city, but this was the best of both worlds. 15 minutes walk from the city and shopping streets, but only a few minutes walk from the port which is wonderful by day or night. Full of shops, bars and restaurants. And we had our pick of the lovely Chiringuitos on the beach for fresh seafood at night. The train station is a 20 minute walk or short hop on the bus, from where you can head off on day trips to Seville or the Costa del Sol. Our host Reme could not have been more helpful, and was on hand for anything we needed. There is nothing I would have changed about our trip and we will be back!

Quite spacious living space with good air conditioning and plenty of seating. Kitchen is equipped to a good standard with many home cooked meals prepared. Two bedrooms had ceiling fans with only the small single without. Best room for summer sleeping is the living room because of the air conditioner and comfortable sofabed. The owner was accomodating with arrival time and was contactable during the stay. Maskom (2 mins) dia (3 mins) and mercadona (8 mins) are three supermarkets close by whilst the beach, although a reasonable distance, can be reached in just over 20 mins on a good march through the traffic tunnel. A definite winter five star but the lack of proper air conditioning in bedrooms makes it a summer four star. All in all would recommend and enjoyed the stay.
