About the property

Sleeps 2/3, roof terrace, all day sun, very close to beach, Nerja nearby.

One bed top floor boutique apartment with stunning views out over the sparkling Mediterranean. From the roof terrace even more so. Down over the lake. The beach. Along the rugged coastline to the east. And the hazy blue backdrop of the Sierra Almijara. Enjoy long lazy days. Lounging. Reading. Dozing. Evenings out on the terraces. Watch the sun go down. Listen to the waves. Smell the night-scented jasmine. Cool white interior. Bosch appliances. Fully equipped for all your holiday entertaining. Soft Egyptian cotton linen. All season duvets. Watch and hear the sea from bed. Organic towels. En-suite bathroom with deluge shower. Air-con cooling and heating. Flat screen LCD iptv TV. Free wifi. Stereo with i-pod dock. King-size dark-stained solid oak four poster bed. Visco memory foam mattress uses the latest in sleep technology to give you a wonderfully relaxing nights sleep. 5 min stroll down through gardens and lake to the beach. Shared pool. 24 hr security. Beautiful Spanish town of Nerja 5 min drive.

Weather: A lot of people consider the Costa Del Sol to have the best climate in mainland Europe. Averaging over 320 days of sunshine a year. Not over hot in summer [when other parts of the Med exceed 38oC]. And warmer sunnier and drier in winter [when most of Europe is below freezing the warmest place is likely to be the Costa Del Sol. Jan temps mid 60'S]. Nerja however has an even better climate than the rest of the coast. It has its own micro climate as a result of the sheltered bay and the mountains directly behind. El Capistrano Playa itself is very sheltered. There is nearly always a cooling breeze in the summer months and the lower terraces at the apartment is lovely and sheltered for sunbathing even in January. There is a local saying that well describes the climate, 'the sun spends the winter in Nerja and the breeze spends the summer'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Emma,

The apartment is stunning, keep our details on file as we’ll be back!

The roadworks have not affected us in the slightest, I guess in this age of --------, a whole new breed of moaners has been thrust upon the holiday letting industry.

Thank you for your concern though.

Kind regards,

Great apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

It was a lovely apartment in a great location. Stunning views and very peaceful and quiet. It was a bit of a climb up from the beach but it does state this in the information given. There is a lift which takes you up/down a few floors but not all the way. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday is within close proximity. We are really looking forward to going back. One of the nicest holidays we have had.

Superb Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment with spectacular views. Everything was clean and modern and very tasteful. The location is also ideal for a walk down to Burriana Beach or further afield into Nerja town. You will work your dinner off though with the walk back up the steps to the apartment.

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear you enjoyed the apartment, and the stunning views. And found everything to your satisfaction. True with that view comes steps! But at least it is such a pretty walk up through the gardens and lake, and an elevator for half the climb! Emma.

Fantastic apartment with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and a very well equipped, clean apartment. We loved the scenic walk through the complex and gardens to the beach and town. We also walked the other way up to the main road to the supermarket. We were able to completely relax and sometimes spent the majority of the day at the apartment before finally getting around to going out! We loved the sound of the waves and the lovely sea breeze. We hired a car and most of the time we were able to park close by. Thank you Emma for letting your wonderful apartment! We will be recommending!
