Designer furnished, tasteful and luxurious penthouse apartment set in colourful landscaped gardens with a large community pool in a quiet residential neighbourhood only 30 minutes by car from Malaga airport. Adjoining a conservation area of dunes, eucalyptus trees and pine woods bordering a long beach which is less than 5 minute walk over the unspoilt dune-land, filled with wild flowers in the spring. This property is a perfect romantic hideaway and a haven for peaceful relaxation with sea and mountain views.
The penthouse apartment is furnished to a high standard with marble floors throughout. Because of its proximity to the beach, there is often a pleasant breeze providing a light and airy feel. Air conditioning is provided with in-built heating for any cooler evenings out of season. There are two tranquil and private roof terraces enjoying excellent views and decked with pots full of colourful plants and climbers. The large terrace is totally private and with sun loungers is ideal for relaxing and sun bathing in total seclusion with the sound of birdsong from the adjoining eucalyptus trees. It is perfect for alfresco eating, barbequing and dining by candlelight under the stars. The smaller terrace off the main bedroom is perfectly positioned for sipping champagne whilst watching the sunset over the distant mountains.
Within walking distance in both directions there are a number of beach bars and restaurants. In one direction is the beach and pretty port of Cabopino with several restaurants and bars including Andy’s Bar. Nearby are other facilities including supermarkets, chemist, banks/ ATM and hotels….the famous Don Carlos is 5 minutes away by car. Marbella is a short drive away and there are many golf courses nearby and numerous other leisure activities. The property is a good touring base to explore this interesting and historic part of Spain (Malaga, Seville, Granada etc.) or for trips to the mountains, Gibraltar and North Africa.
More about the apartment: The apartment bedrooms are furnished with a double and twin beds with Memory Foam mattresses. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with over bath shower and the twin room is serviced by a shower room. All bed linen and bathroom towels are included; you will only need beach towels.
The living room area is spacious and comfortably furnished and incorporates a dining area….rarely used as life is lived out on the lovely terraces! There is TV, DVD/CD player and Wi-Fi and some books.
The kitchen is well equipped and includes oven, hob and microwave although the barbeque probably gets more use than the oven! There is a good size fridge and freezer so no need to be constantly shopping. To minimise packing there is a washing machine, clothes airer and lines (everything dries quickly on the terrace), iron and board.
There is a toy box on the terrace which is a children’s treasure trove of all sorts of things left by other little visitors!
Further location details: A very large choice of restaurants lie within driving distance as do the fashionable shops and malls of Marbella, some 15 minutes by car. For those seeking night life, plenty is available within Marbella and its surroundings. There are numerous golf courses in the area making this a golfers paradise and good skiing exists (in season) in the Sierra Nevada mountains near Granada, within 2 hours drive away. Gibraltar is easily accessible.
Transport etc.: It is advisable to hire a car if you wish to visit other areas.
Around August a number of families arrive for their summer holidays and everyone enjoys dining and drinking on their terraces, hence it may be less quiet in the evenings! Community rules ask people to respect their neighbours.
