Penthouse Overlooking Mediterranean VFT/MA/06432

Bedrooms 3
Space 120 m²
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, futon, living/dining area, patio+rooftop. Sleeps 2-7, max8

A large sunny apartment, 120 sq. meters, this 3 bedroom 3rd-floor gem has a large living/dining area with flat screen TV, two tiled remodeled bathrooms, a modern kitchen, three bedrooms with ceiling fans, and marble floors. A comfortable futon accommodates 2 additional people. For relaxing entertainment, the smart TV displays online or smartphone content like movies, videos, and social media using screen mirroring, Wi-Fi Direct, Apple TV, or Samsung TV apps. The Hi-Fi stereo plays music files from smartphones for listening enjoyment. Starting in May, 2017, the apartment will feature central air conditioning and heating. As always, the outdoor beauty beckons through a wide expanse of glass doors affording spectacular views of the blue Mediterranean. The spacious patio and rooftop are perfect for dining 'al fresco', entertaining, and enjoying life's pleasures. The swimming pool awaits in a lush garden setting overlooking the Sea. El Tuhillo is a scenic seven minute walk to the centre of town. More photos available upon request.

Nerja is Unique: Nerja enjoys the ambiance of the 'old world' Spain, with its beautiful winding streets, whitewashed houses, as well as pretentious tiled homes behind garden walls. Enjoy as many as you can of the 500 restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and tapa bars. Dancing, Spanish music, and entertainment fill the late night hours until dawn, when you can enjoy champagne and watch the sun rise. Nerja is filled with excitement and adventure sufficient to create romantic memories that will last for years.

A Walker's Paradise: Whether you like to 'shop till you drop', or hike a more challenging route, Nerja has it all. Shops selling Spanish leather goods offer glorious bargains in shoes, handbags, and jackets. For a beginner's adventurous walk, just below El Tuhillo is a trail alongside the Mediterranean, through giant boulders where you enjoy the Sea lapping at your heels as you walk through miraculous scenery. The trail leads you to the Balcon de Europa, the centre of town. Hikes nearby in the mountains of Frigiliana afford a more zestful challenge above that historical old Moorish town.

Things To Do: From Nerja, by bus or car, it is only a day trip to glorious Granada, site of the Alhambra Palace. Likewise to Malaga, one of the oldest cities in the world. From Malaga one can take a boat to Gibraltar or Morocco. Closer to Nerja are the prehistoric caves which offer ballet and music in the summer. Fiestas abound during the year but especially summer. Street-side 'Tuesday Market' offers countless bargains, and follow that up with a seaside dinner at Burriana Beach, of fresh, grilled fish, patatas fritas, cerveza, and paella served from a pan so large it is stirred with a shovel by none other than 'Aiyo' himself.

Why Sue Fuller chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Yearly trips around Europe for this family of 6 gave us the privilege of viewing many beautiful coastlines, but it was an easy call that this coastline view from El Tuhillo was the most beautiful ever. It couldn't get any better. All these years later when I visit the apartment, I still take view pictures each day. We are truly blessed.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Christine, Yes you were right, it was all about the view. Your apt was fab and had everything one needed; just reading the guestbook said it all. Also would like to mention Denise, your cleaning lady, and Sue were very helpful and took time to explain things to us. They are a credit to you. Thank you for letting us stay in your pad. All the best and I wish you many more bookings.

Take care, Judy xx

The WOW factor!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment definitely has the WOW! factor. The views are simply superb. The apartment itself is beautiful, but we spent most of our time outside. The balcony is great and the roof terrace is a real bonus. In the evening when the sun was off the balcony, we adjourned to the roof terrace which had views of the sea and mountains and caught the last rays until the sun went down. The apartment is a very short walk from the Balcon de Europa and there are loads of restaurants within walking distance. On-street parking was very hit or miss when we were there, so we opted to pay for parking (a pass for a week cost 62 Euros) as it avoided the hassle of searching for a space every time we got back. The car park is just a couple of minutes walk away. To drop off your luggage or shopping at the door, go past the Parador as the one-way street comes round by the door to the apartments. It's not a busy road, so easy to stop and drop off if you leave someone with the luggage/shopping. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if/when we return to Nerja.

Fabulous cliff top apartment in Nerja town

  • 5 of 5

Hi Chris,

I'm back at work now and missing Nerja terribly. The apartment was great and we all really enjoyed our time there, Sue met us and gave us the quick tour and everything after that was self explanatory, fantastic location and views, so much so that there are already talks of a return visit. I will keep your details on file and I will pass them on to the people who were in our larger group of about 20 people who are also talking about return trips to the area.

Best wishes,

Owner's Response: Niall was part of a out-of-country wedding party. Because the apartment is so large, I suggested he could have friends over to enjoy the rooftop view. Nerja is a popular place for weddings as others have stayed in I-3 for other such happy occasions. Thank you, Niall.

Spectacular is not strong enough to describe the views...

  • 5 of 5

Christine: your apartment is simply fabulous and you are right- it is all about the views... We have had a wonderful holiday with our daughter. Our son and his wife also joined us for 3 days. This is our second holiday in Nerja and we plan to come back. We truly felt at home in your beautiful apartment. It's location is perfect, it is comfortable, clean, very well equipped and... did I mention the views?... Thank you so much... We are leaving with lasting memories...

Warm and welcoming condo in Nerja

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 weeks at this lovely condo with endless views of the Mediterranean. We had everything we needed for cooking, endless towels and bedding, beach supplies and more. We explored far and wide but it was with a sense of comfort and happiness that we returned each time to our vacation home. Nerja is a jewel of a town and both Burriana Beach (and others) and the downtown area are easily accessible from the condo. We did have a car and managed to find parking most of the time but it would be very easy to enjoy your holiday without one. We will remember your condo and the many good times forever.

Owner's Response: This couple was fortunate to have the time to visit Tangiers in Morocco, Gibraltar, as well as exploring southern Spain. She wrote of dining at Ayo's world famous paella on the beach, grilled sardines and calamari at La Marina, and how much they enjoyed the tapas served all around the town.. They found the apartment was "spotlessly clean." Welcome back any time!

Fabulous apartment, fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely rwo week holiday in Nerja. The apartment was just as described in the listing and the view was sensational. Sue met us on our arrival and could not have been more helpful. The apartment was clean and well equipped, there were even spades, buckets etc for us to take to the beach! Every evening was spent sitting on the balcony, sipping a drink, watching the sun go down, whilst our grandson slept. It was delightful. The pool and pool side were kept scrupulously clean, it was never too crowded.

We did not hire a car as we could walk everywhere we wanted in Nerja and we used the excellent local bus to take us to the caves, which is a must for all visitors. For the airport transfer we used Nerja taxis. I booked these on line and they were brilliant. They were waiting on our arrival with a lovely airconditioned car to take us to Nerja, and waiting 10 minutes early for our return

As we had our young grandson we tended to eat relatively early so had no problem getting tables in any restauraunts. All our meals were lovely. We particularly enjoyed a breakfast outside the Balcon hotel, such comfort and luxury.

As we were staying at the hottest time of the year we did find we were hot at night. There are fans in all the rooms and the lounge area was always comfortable, the bedrooms were still quite hot, air conditioning would be nice! However, that would not stop us recommending the apartment and we would certainly try to book it again if returning to Nerja.
