About the property

Two Double Bedrooms, Two Bathrooms, Balcony and Patio With Two Community Pools

Nerja, the coastal gem of the Axarquia, is right on the Mediterranean shoreline at the foothills of the Sierra De Tejada mountains, about thirty miles east of Malaga on the Costa Del Sol, and about forty minutes drive from the Airport (on the N340 motorway).

It has sandy beaches, impressive mountain scenery and is untouched by high rise developments typical elsewhere in Spain. With its mild climate you can enjoy yourself to the full all year round and take advantage of the relaxed way of life of a town that still retains much of the character of its Moorish past.

Nerja has a choice of beaches, Burriana, Calahonda, Torrecilla and Salon. The most popular is the Burriana where you will find plenty of places to eat lunch or enjoy an evening meal.

All the usual water sports including water skiing, scuba diving and sailing are available. From Burriana beach to the town runs a coastal path with fantastic views. Following the winding path brings you into the town where you will find the famous Balcon de Europa.

The Balcon, formerly a XI Century castle, is now a viewing point above the sea with panoramic views of the Mediterranean and the small coves and beaches below. This is the place to be at night where people promenade after a wonderful meal. You can either sit and watch with a nice cool drink, take a tour of the town by horse & trap or have your portrait drawn by one of the street artists.

Adjacent to the Balcon is the beautiful 17th century El Salvador Church constructed in Baroque-Mudejar style, where religious festivals such as Holy week (Easter) and Festival of San Juan and Carmen Day are celebrated in their own special way.

Another event of particular note is the acclaimed Nerja Caves Festival which takes place amongst Stalactites and Stalagmites that were formed millions of years ago. NerjaCaves are currently the third most visited monument in the whole of Spain.

The house is located on a delightful Andalucian 'pueblo' style development known as Nueva Nerja that retains all of its traditional character and forms part of the old fishing town of Nerja.

The house was fully refurbished in 2009; new kitchen, bathrooms and bedroom furniture. It is located in a secluded courtyard away from the main walkways; it has its own outdoor eating area equipped with table and chairs.

It is within two minutes of two swimming pools and a small shop selling day to day needs with a larger Spar supermarket just five minutes walk.

The two double bedrooms each have single beds and double wardrobes; there is additional space for a cot or an further single bed in the larger rear bedroom. Both bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully equipped with microwave, toaster, washer, oven, hob and large fridge/freezer; there is plenty of cutlery, crockery and glassware. The living room has two sofas, flat screen TV with UK digital land channels, DVD player and dining table. The living room also has a ceiling fan. There are two bathrooms; the ground floor wet room has a shower and the upstairs bathroom has a full bath with shower over.

All hot water and heating is via electricity thus avoiding old fashioned bottled gas. There are oil filled electric radiators for Winter use.

The house is ten minutes level walk from the centre of town and the mentioned Balcon de Europa, with its thriving cafes, tapas bars and haute cuisine restaurants. There is a multitude of street entertainment too with many concerts and recitals in the Summer months.

A similar walk will bring you to either of Burriana and Carabeo beaches (although Burriana is down a very steep hill).

Burriana beach also has a large number of beach restaurants to suit all tastes; the barbecued fish and huge dishes of paella are a specialty. Burriana beach will also offer you all you need in water sports including scuba diving, wind sailing and paragliding.

The typical Andalucian village of Frigiliana is also a short bus ride; cars are all but banned from this wonderful village of cobbled streets and whitewashed houses. Climb to the top of the village for spectacular views down over Nerja and the olive groves.

Nerja has managed to keep a lot of it's character, particularly the old part of town with narrow cobbled streets and Tapas Bars, small shops offering local produce of the area, including sweet wine, olive oil, honey and tropical fruits. There is also a wide range of international restaurants which offer a variety of menus to suit all tastes.

Lovers of the open air can enjoy the wonderful countryside in the area. Sierra Nevada (Europe's most Southerly Ski resort) is only two hours drive from Nerja so you can ski in the morning and be on the beach in the afternoon! For those who seek alternative activities, there is fishing, canoeing, hiking, cycling, horse riding and parascending and of course there is golf at Añoreta golf course which is twenty minutes drive and the Baviera golf course is even closer.

Nerja has something for everyone!

About Sarah-Jane Denham

We have been going to Nerja since 1977 and fell in love with the town at first visit. We welcome you to use our home in the sun to create your own memories; it doesn't matter whether you come for a few days or for a longer break, whether you want a beach holiday or a more town oriented visit. There really is something for everybody, whatever your age group or interest.

We cannot allow groups of boys or girls; the house is strictly for couples and families.

Sarah-Jane Denham purchased this house in 1978

Why Sarah-Jane Denham chose Nerja

The house has been in the family since 1978 and generations of the same families have been using it since then. We have got to know many local people and visitors who go at the same time every year. It really is that kind of place!

Comfortable, well-located house

  • 4 of 5

Sarah-Jane is an excellent host and communicator. She provided detailed information regarding the house and the town both prior to our arrival and available in the house. Although situated on a busy street, the house is separated from the street by a substantial wall and fronted on a shared private courtyard, resulting in little noise from traffic. The rooms are sufficiently large for our party of four to move about without interfering with each other. The furniture is substantial and better than we have experienced in some other homes. The kitchen in particular is roomy with good appliances - easy in which to prepare meals. Windows and doors are of excellent quality, further soundproofing the house. We recommend Sarah-Jane's house without reservation to those seeking a place well located in Nerja.

Clean, comfortable and good location

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Nueva Nerja previously but it was our first time to stay in Sarah-Jane's house which is situated in a lovely quiet courtyard in this development. There are 2 pools - a very small one a minutes walk from the house (I love this pool) and a larger pool just across the road which my boys loved. The shop next door stocks almost everything you could need and is open for about 16 hours each day. The Villa Flamenca Hotel is across the road but non-residents are not allowed to use any of the facilities (pool, bar or restaurant) during the day but we did have a drink there late one night.

The house itself is clean and comfortable and well-equipped. We had a problem with the plumbing on Day 2 but Sarah-Jane organised a plumber to call that evening and he dealt with the problem quickly. We were more than satisfied with the reaction to the problem.

Sarah-Jane had advised us not to grant entry to anybody claiming to be a cleaner and we were glad that she had told us this as the family in the adjoining house were not told this and were robbed by a bogus cleaner whilst they were in the house.

Burriana Beach is fantastic with a huge range of places to eat and drink - its less than a 10 minute walk from the house but beware the very steep hill on the way back. The Balcon and town centre are about a 15 minute stroll away and is a bustling, friendly place with a huge range of restaurants.

The Wi-Fi in the house is a bit slow but we found it reliable.

The only disadvantage was that there is no air-conditioning in the house. The bedrooms and living area do have fans but it was very hot at night.

Would we recommend - definitely yes.

Would we return - definitely yes but not in July or August.

A very clean and comfortable townhouse everything required to make your stay a happy one

  • 3 of 5

We have been going on holiday to Nerja for 12 years.

The townhouse was in a quiet courtyard, well maintained and all appliances in very good working order.

The town was about a 15 minute walk to the beach and shops, so ideal for walking and stopping in various cafes and restaurants.

A pleasant stay and very relaxing, with stunning scenery and friendly locals and ex-pats.

The owner, was very prompt with contacting us and we received the deposit in case of breakages very quickly. The instructions were very clear

and found the keys waiting for us at the petrol station.

Our stay in Nerja

  • 4 of 5

First off all we will say thank you to Sara-Jane who let us rent there house in Nerja where we had a wonderful time. We felt very welcom from day one and the house was exactely what we had expected. The best thing was the fact that this is a kind of a town-house where you are just a stroll away from everything, and at the same time it is quiet and relaxed. We often sat out in the evenings and enjoied our selves without any major disturbens. No partynoise at all, only adults living near by. We would love to come back and I am sure we will contact the owners the next time we are going to this amazing town in the south of Spain...

The house is ideally located on the edge of the 'old' town; a 10 minute level walk from all possible amenities, including healthcare, with basic food/drink needs even closer to the house. Located 800m from the sea which is walkable but down a steep hill. Perfectly suited for short or longer stays, many people come and stay for the winter. Nerja is a coastal town at the foot of the Almijara mountains with a long tradition of fishing and agriculture. The fishermen still pull their nets ashore on Burriana beach and fresh produce can still be bought from the doorways of local people´s houses. The weekly market (Tuesday) attracts many traders and shoppers from all over the region and the town centre has a vibrant, friendly atmosphere with many lovely shops and tapas bars & restaurants. Something for everyone!
