Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a wonderful week in your house in Almunecar. We have found the house and the key without any problems, thanks to your good explanation.

The weather was really beautiful, we were very lucky to have so much sunshine! A bit of warmth and light in the darkest period of the year. Exactly what we were looking for!

Very comfortable home from home.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 teenagers and my husband and myself. We didn't hire a car but we had no problems with taxis, which are needed due to the very hilly area. It is a bit further out of town than we had thought but taxis to the local Mercadona were not an issue. The infinity pool is BEAUTIFUL and definately made our stay cooler. We even had night dips in the other pool, we weren't alone ☺️. We spend many, evenings on the balcony playing the games there or inside watching DVDs when it was too hot. Totally recommend this place, has everything you would need 😊.

Local area is very Spanish and my children got to practise their language use. Water park is better value for money than I initially thought and bigger than I thought. Bring a picnic! Nerva caves were wonderful and the old town was a delight. Loved it 💞

A cool, peaceful haven from the hot sun

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a wonderful two weeks at Casa Tropical. Eight of us staying age range 9- adult. Very comfortable stay in well equipped home from home. Thoughtful welcome pack on arrival. Air conditioning in July / August was an absolute must and made our nights sleep restful and relaxed. Lovely terrace to spend the evenings. Both pools were lovely. Especially enjoyed the infinity pool which is well maintained and a wonderful place to spend a lazy day. We arrived dead on opening time of 12.00 to secure our spot but despite this being peak season it didn't feel overly crowded. Long strolls along the beach fronts at night and amazing meals on the beach, this really is a beautiful part of Spain. Enjoyed Cabria beach with paddle board hire and stunning Marina del Este beach and marina. We have returned tanned, refreshed and looking forward to returning. Thank you.

Relaxing family location

  • 4 of 5

The description of the house and location was very accurate. Very well equipped house with very welcome and substantial "welcome"pack! Clean and comfortable except for the heat in upstairs bedrooms which were not helped by ceiling fans however the heat in our first week was as everyone told us unseasonably hot!! Air con was broken downstairs but had a mobile unit for first 6 days until wall unit fixed. We didn't want to hire a car as didn't want to go far and found the location a little remote but we had been made aware of this beforehand, however we did name the hill up from the beach as " Heart attack" hill as it is certainly not a location for the unfit or elderly unless have a car. Sonia and her taxis were fabulous, reasonable and v reliable. Almunecar was a lovely old Spanish town.. A trip into Nerja reinforced what we thought, that it is pretty but touristy and totally invaded by Brits whereas Almunecar remains a Spanish holiday town wi th lovely restaurants and heladarias. Problem in second week with jelly fish which we were told is an increasing problem on the whole of the coast along to Marbella andwas slightly off putting but pools at villa were lovely, could be busy but it was holiday season and we always managed to find sun loungers, restricted at the larger pool by opening times as didn't open until 12 which was a shame but didn't spoil things. The owners were very quick to respond to any queries or problems and helped everything go smoothly.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. As you say, the aircon is now fixed. We did suggest a car if staying here, however the local taxis are cheap and reliable as you found out.

Fantastic spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and well laid out. Also well kitted out, a great base for visiting surrounding area. The 2 swimming pools are excellent and very close. Enjoyed patio area in the evening with brand new gas barbecue. The beds are comfortable and location is nice and quiet at night. Was terrific for our extended family of 3 adults and 4 children. Lovely aspect and peaceful location. Look forward to returning!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Pennys and Tims house. The rooms were clean, our favorite room was the upstairs bedroom with the panoramic window, which provided an amazing view. Every morning we enjoyed our breakfast on the terrace in the provided sunchairs. When a chair broke, Sue and Allan, the local caretakers, replaced it within very few hours. Arriving, parking and staying there was alltogether very easy. The appartment didn´t have wifi which was no problem, because there was a free wifi at the McDonalds in the city. Although the appartment is situated on the mountainside, we only walked 20 minutes to the beach. Almunecar is a great place to be. Although it is a typical holiday resort with one hotel next to the other, you find a lovely old town with small streets and lots of cultural programm. June was the perfect time, since it was warm but not too hot and crowded. Even the two fantastic pools were barely used by other people than us. We can highly recommend the appartment to everyone who wants to spend a nice, relaxing time at the Costa del sol!
