Excellent heating/air conditioning. Brilliant location - we could walk to all the places we wanted to visit. The area is authentic and vibrant with a great selection of cafes, bars and restaurants within a short walk. Cruz is very welcoming and organised. She provided lots of helpful information and her communication is prompt and efficient. She is available if you need anything but not at all intrusive. We loved staying here and would certainly recommend Malaga and this apartment!

It did get a little cold at night, but Jayne gave us a gas oven and if it gets too cold, just go and relax in the jacuzzi! Get a small car - the roads surrounding the apartment are winding and narrow. It takes long to get anywhere but the views are incredible. We would come back any time!

This property lived up to those expectations in every way. There was excellent communication with the owners and with the lady who was on hand to meet and greet us on arrival and show us around the house. She was also well informed about the town and local area. The house was very cosy and comfortable with a very well thought out sunroom/roof terrace. We have lived in a bungalow for 30 years so we're not used to the 39 steps from the ground floor kitchen dinner to the roof terrace however we got used to them after a couple of days and did not find them a problem although those with mobility issues might struggle. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would be happy to stay there again. The house is well positioned in this small town and the slightly larger town of Competa is just a 35 minute walk away. You could do the walk in about 25 minutes but we kept stopping to take in the view. Whilst on the subject of views, the one from the roof terrace is fabulous.
