About the property

Cosy cottage just 10 seconds walk from the sandy beach near the marina & harbour

Fisherman's Cottage is the perfect place for a couple to holiday very near to the beach on the Eastern Costa Del Sol. Located just seconds walk from the beach on the old coast road at Caleta De Velez - the fishing port and marina being 3 minutes walk. Caleta de Velez is a small resort with plenty of bar/restaurants, small shops and local facilities all within a few minutes walk. There is free street parking nearby and a good bus service operating East to Nerja and West to Malaga with the bus stops 5 minutes walk from the cottage.

Fisherman's Cottage is a good coastal base for those hiring a car and wishing to explore the sights of Andalucia.

Granada and the Alhambra Palace, Nerja, Malaga city, Seville and Cordoba are all accessed on good roads/motorways from the cottage.

Many guest will just want to relax on the beach or the sunny roof terrace with its sea views and not travel too far from this very Spanish location. Walk to the street market or enjoy a BBQ & vino under the stars.

Fishermans Cottage - local area: Fishermans Cottage is perfectly located for anyone wanting to walk to the local shops and bars etc. There are several bar/restaurants,a small supermarket, a bakers and a newsagents with a few minutes walk. Between Caleta de Velez and Torre del Mar the beach side promenade passes a number beachbar eateries serving tasty tapas and great local fish & seafood.

Golfers can drive to the 18 hole public course ' Baviera' in just 5 minutes. Full equipment hire is available.

Torre del Mar & Velez Malaga: Torre del Mar is a much larger beach resort which is walkable in around 20 minutes or a 5 min drive. Here you will find entertainment for all ages and a good choice of restaurants including Indian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican and of course Spanish!

The sandy beach is 2km long with safe bathing and beach showers, etc. Sun loungers can also be rented.

Velez Malaga has a large modern shopping centre with excellent boutique shops and Eroski supermarket. It also has tenpin bowling and a multi cinema complex. A modern tram service connects Torre del Mar to the shopping centre and Velez Malaga.

Horse riding can be found nearby and there is a go kart track also.

Exploring Andalucia: Fishermans Cottage is a good coastal base from which to visit the sites and attractions of Andalucia. Granada and the Alhambra Palace is must see. Malaga city is easily reach by car or why not use the local bus - cheap and easy. Visit the castle and the Picasso Museum. Great shopping and tapas bars too. Nerja is a short drive or bus journey along the coast and has great beaches and the famous Nerja Caves.

A good motorway network gives access to Cordoba, Antequerra and Seville.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was a very good place for us!! The cottage is so nice and comfy! The beach so close and beautiful. The roof terrace was great for sunbathing & eating. All this is the middle of a quiet small town full of kind & generous people!!

Spain has become a place we want to get to know better. Fishermans Cottage will be on our list...

The property is what it states a budget getaway. It's situated in a fabulous position on the beach.

  • 3 of 5

Just come back from a two week stay Feb/Mar. The cottage is excellently positioned for all local ammenities. The cottage has all the daily essentials you need for self catering holiday by the coast. We found some fabulous places to eat & drink. Can recommend Rompeolas, El Bodegon, San Muigel chiringuito, Chiki beach resturant , Tizos. The beautiful hill top village of Frilliana near Nerja is a must see.

Albi gave us a warm welcoming & the milk & drinks provided in the fridge was a lovely touch from Albi. However, I think if we had stayed in the cottage during warmer months our experience at the cottage would have been very different, which was a real shame . The weather was the worst they had for 6 mths. The beaches up & down the coast were flooded with debris from the mountains , Which the local council were on straight away to clear. Did a great job.

Overall, unfortunately it wasn't our perfect romantic winter sun holiday accommodation for that time of the year, we found the cottage was very cold, damp & smelled damp. There was bad mold on the bathroom ceiling & even more on the ceiling at the top of the spiral stairs which leads to a door to the roof terrace. Its obviously been like that a while. Everything in the mornings was wet. The heater on the aircon unit was a god send in the cold evenings ,But didnt takeaway the damp. Just made it warmer before bed for the cold night ahead.

In our opinion a property shouldn't be let out in winter unless properly prepared & free of damp & mold . Even a budget property should be habitable all year round.

It would have been nice for someone In the prior reviews on this site to have mentioned ,so could have been prepared for the dustbin men coming every morn between 3 & 5 am to the large dustbins opposite the cottage, which awakened us every morn.

On conclusion a sweet ideally, well set up

property to be used in the warmer months

This had to be my most relaxing holiday ever. The house had everything we needed and more would love to return again. There are lovely places to eat near by and if you go to the marina there is a path that you can walk along the beach all the way to the next village. 4 kilometers ample little bars on the way. thank you so much for letting us stay

Private and cosy

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is in a quieter part of the area, away from the hustle and bustle of Torre del Mar yet close enough for an enjoyable walk, with local amenities: bars, shops, supermarkets just right. The cottage itself is well stocked, and the welcome drinks in the fridge were indeed very welcome!! We received a warm welcome by Abi who was at the property waiting for us ready to answer any questions we had. All the property facilities are as described, I cannot think of a single thing that is needed on holiday that was not provided. Our week was spent walking in the area which was fab; returning to the cottage, getting a drink and sitting on the beach, often with the beach to ourselves, was divine. Having breakfast on the terrace was lovely, although we did not have the time to take advantage of the sun loungers up there. Just 30 yards down on the beach is a lovely beach bar with welcoming hosts, good food which you can enjoy sat with your feet in the sand and your mind in heaven!

We are back again this April for our second visit!

This place is just gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This place is just so quirky, it is compact and bijou but has everything you need and more. It is in a fabulous location(right on the beach) and is near the shops and restaurants. The balcony is lovely and gives some privacy, although the spiral staircase is not for the feint hearted. Ali is just brilliant, nothing is too much trouble and he is just so helpful and informative. The bed is comfy with plenty of storage with a huge wardrobe and bedside cabinets. It is on the main road and can get a bit noisy early hours of the morning but it did not bother us. The local restaurants are authentic Spanish and have the most gorgeous and amazing food and a beer is very cheap. It is a 20min walk to Torres de Mar along the beach or the promenade, there are plenty of shops and restaurants there plus tourist info. You can hire bikes in Caleta for the day, its all very laid back and cheap. We rode to Torrox along a very safe cycle track , its well worth it to see a bit more of the coast. We would definitely book here again. We have inspired our friends to go to Caleta de Velez , I hope this review inspires more people to go because it is just lovely.

Lovely little cottage right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Very well equipped little cottage which was very clean on arrival.

The cottage has a good sized kitchen with a washing machine, a small but comfortable living area, a good size bathroom with a great walk-in shower and a large bedroom with a comfortable bed. There are lots of towels, bedding, cleaning products provided in the cottage. There is also a large roof terrace which is accessed via a steep spiral staircase, but it's worth the climb. From the terrace you have a great view of the beach and it's ideal day or night to have a refreshment and people watch. There are also a couple of very nice sun loungers on which I managed to snooze away several hours over our visit.

We were met at the cottage by Mr & Mrs Abi who made sure all was spotless for our arrival and the cava, beers, water, milk, juice and biscuits provided were very much appreciated. They were also a great source of information about the surrounding area.

The only small suggestion I would make is can you provide a lower down mirror. I'm not particularly vain but to brush my hair I had to stand on the second step of the staircase to see in the living room mirror and at 5' 6" I had no chance in the bathroom mirror.

The cottage is well placed for all amenities with lots of shops (Supermarket Louise - turn left out the front door & it's on the first street on your left has a great selection of cold meats and cheese as well as most things you might need), bars and restaurants ( El Bodegon - again turn left out of the front door and walk towards the harbour, it's just past the supermarket - do amazing food).

On the main road ( next street up) you can get an Alsa bus if you want to go exploring, if you want to go to Granada you can get the bus to Nerja and then the connection to Granada leaves at 10am.

We had a great holiday and would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

Owner's Response: A very thoughtful review and one we can be proud of. Many thanks Ann for your comments and suggestion re the height of the mirror. We have purchased another mirror to be placed a little lower on the wall. Carl

Beachside one bed cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fishermans cottage is a small one bedroom property backing onto the beach in Caleta de Velez.

The cottage is ideal for a couple or a single person looking for a beach break in an area that is very Spanish.

The cottage has a kitchen with everything you'll need if you wish to eat in, a double bedroom with a large wardrobe which has plenty of sheets blankets and towels. The bathroom has a fitted shower which gives a great shower.

The cottage has a roof terrace which is reached via a spiral staircase where there are sunloungers, a table and chairs as well as a couple of washing lines.

There is a huge range of restaurants locally and within a short drive so you need never struggle to find somewhere to eat.

There are plenty of shops and supermarkets within walking distance and also within a short distance if you have a car.

The beach behind the property is fairly sandy, there is also a very large beach in the next town of Torre del Mar.

We received a very warm welcome from Carl at the property and found him a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking process and during our stay.

If you are looking for a small property to rent in this area I would thoroughly recommend Fishermans Cottage.

Owner's Response: I am very pleased with this descriptive review that well describes Fishermans Cottage. " Beach break in an area that is still very Spanish" sums up what this little hideaway has to offer. With just about everything you will need within walking distance. La Caleta de Velez is a top location for those wanting to avoid the larger, busier resorts; and yet still be 15 minutes walk from bustling Torre del Mar. Thanks Bill for your comments and do please return. Carl
