Why Jane Birch chose Nerja

We felt this property had a great location, stunning views and close to the beach. From the roof top terrace you can see the whole of Nerja, the mountains and the nearby beach.

What makes this house unique

It also has the advantage of a separate self contained apartment below for when extra family members or friends come to stay.

Great holiday home

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I have recently returned from a 16 night stay in Punta Lara. The apartment was all you could ask for in a holiday home, spacious,clean, well equipped and 'should' you get bored with the sun (ha ha) a TV with more channels than I thought existed. There was the added bonus of fabulous views from the roof terrace of the coastline and the town of Nerja. The weather was glorious contributing to what was, overall, a very pleasant stay. One small point I recommend you heed the owner, Jane's, advice and invest in a car hire unless you are a keen hill walker

The house is conveniently located within walking distance to the nearest beach and small supermarket

  • 4 of 5

A well equipped house with fine views of both mountains and beaches from the roof terrace and lounge balconies.Although Punta Lara is outside the main town of Nerja the town can be reached by a scenic beach walk

or by taking one of the regular buses at the bus stop five minutes walk from the house.

The owner had left good instructions for house equipment and appliances and the satellite TV provide a great range of programmes.

During our stay the weather deteriorated ,the temperature fell significantly. And we were very grateful for the room heaters supplied by the


We regretted that there was no swimming pool available but realised that

A majority of the pools in the area are only in use in the summer months.

Nerja is a lively and pretty town and most businesses offer friendly and good value services.

Owner's Response: Hi Graham Thanks for a good review. I'm glad you liked the house and appreciated all the instructions. We really love the views from the roof top too. Unfortunately as you mentioned most pools in the area don't open till mid to late April but luckily the beach and sea are less than a 10 minute walk away if you fancy a swim. Really sorry to hear your weather wasn't so good but glad to hear you still made the most of your holiday and still enjoyed all that Punta Lara and Nerja have to offer. Hope to see you back sometime soon. Kind regards Jane

not very comfortable

  • 3 of 5

The property has a nice location however there were a few problems that made our stay not comfortable. First, the shower or water in general.

It was either cold or extremely hot. We tried everything including changing a shower head but nothing helped. Second issue was internet. It worked for the first week but then started randomly buffering and stop for a period from 15 min to an hour. Rebooting the router did not solve the problem. We enjoyed being outside of the property, the sea and sun made our trip pleasant.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry you did not find our property as comfortable as you would have liked. My father came for a trip immediately after you and cleaned out the shower hose and that seemed to fix the problem. It was just a build up of limescale. My father reported no problem with the internet and when we arrived 6 days later for a week we also had no issue with it either. Again I am sorry if there was any disappointment felt. I pride myself in good guest care so I am sorry your trip wasn't what you had hoped for. Kind regards Jane

Luxurious Villa with Amazing Views on the edge of Magical Nerja

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from Jane's beautiful house after a fabulous week's holiday. We stayed 9th to 16th September 2016. Weather was hot during the day with balmy evenings. The communal swimming pool is close to the house and quite often, we had it to ourselves, and there were never many people there. There are two bars near the pool. Our favarouite is the Oasis Bar & Restaurant. The food is good and reasonably priced, and offers a varied menu of Spanish and English food. They are open midday to midnight and offer takeaway food too. Staff are Spanish and speak excellent English and are very welcoming.

The house is very well equipped and is a true home from home. There are beach mats and even a shopping trolley for guests to use, and too many extras to mention. Beds, sofa and chairs are really comfortable which in my experience is rare for rented holiday homes. There's a washing machine in the elegant kitchen. The bedrooms and shower room are downstairs with sitting room, kitchen and bathroom (with shower over bath) upstairs, opening through French doors onto a spacious balcony with table and chairs with umbrella, and spiral stairway up to large roof terrace. There's air conditioning, ceiling fans and fast wifi connection.

I've holidayed in Nerja more times than I can remember, but I've never seen views half as good as the view from the roof terrace. The roof terrace is well equipped with tables and chairs, including 4 sun loungers, and there's a pergola to give shade from the sun.

The house is in the Punta Lara Urbanization which is a quiet and well maintained area. The bins are a short walk from the house, and the local council collections are every night.

We never had a problem finding a space to park the car on the road, at the front of the house. We hired a car from We booked the car online and paid for it on collection. Cost was 161 Euros for 7 days including full insurance pack with excess cover. Shuttle bus services are available to airport from Nerja.

It's a pleasant 40 minute walk into Nerja from Punta Lara, along the beach, with numerous opportunities for refreshments along the way, and at night, the route is well lit. You can catch the bus into Nerja, hourly, across the road from Punta Lara.

Nerja is a real gem. Jane, the owner, has been very helpful and responded straight away to any questions. Nick, from the local letting agency, was easy to contact.

I'm looking forward to returning for another wonderful holiday!
