All along the beach front are plenty of restaurants and cafes serving delicious food and specialising in fried fish. The area is typically Spanish and not touristy at all. The supermarket is within easy walking distance. The apartment is as specified and has a lovely little terrace to sit and have meals or just to sit and look out over the beach and sea. There is a roof terrace but I found this disappointing. However, beach chairs and a parasol are provided so this was not really an issue. The apartment is also within easy reach of the bus stop to Malaga which is only a 15 minutes journey. The buses are excellent and run regularly even throughout the night. Buses to other areas throughout the region run from Malaga. Malaga has plenty of interesting museums (we loved the car and fashion museum!) as well as a great selection of shops, cafes, ice cream parlours, restaurants and a park. There are loads of attractions to visit around Malaga province including a botanical garden, water parks, amusement park (open till 1.30 am), butterfly garden, caves and even a Buddhist temple. So there is plenty to keep different generations within a family happy! And if you love clothes and shoe shopping - go to nearby Torremolinos! I would definitely recommend this apartment to those who do not wish to be in the typical tourist resorts nearby and knowing a small amount of Spanish helped get us by! My only concern is that I had to pay the remaining amount due for the apartment to the owner in cash and I would have preferred to have paid this directly into their bank account. All 3 of us very much enjoyed our holiday (with my daughter aged 21 and son aged 12).

A clean and comfortable house with a nice terrace and garden where we used to spend most of our time: we had breakfast and lunch under the tropical fruit trees!! It is a very quiet place, and we really enjoyed our “siestas” lying on loungers under the Andalusian sun. It is very easy to go to the beaches and downtown Malaga is close. There are lots to see and do in Malaga and surroundings. Malaga is a nice city, Frigiliana, Nerja, el Torcal, all very nice to see. Juan Carlos and Matilde are very welcoming and friendly people. I would recommend this place to everyone!!

Cristina answered all our questions honestly, promptly and thoroughly and we were disappointed not to be able to go. We will certainly consider this villa next time we are looking. Having inquired about many villas in the past the dialogue we had with Cristina was by far the best.
