About Gavin C
I live in London with my wife and two children. We are addicted to the outside life and take every opportunity to escape to the sun!
Gavin C purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Gavin C chose Torrequebrada
We fell in love with Benalmadena after previous visits and decided to buy an apartment for us to use for our holidays. After seeing 18 apartments, we chose this one as we liked the area, which is peaceful and feels very safe. It's great not having to hire a car as the beach is very close and it's easy to get around by public transport. Having a large supermarket and golf course on our doorstep was a big selling point too. This is our first year of offering the apartment for rental so, if you decide to book, we hope you enjoy staying here as much as we do.
What makes this Apartment unique
A personal favourite feature is the terrace, which captures the afternoon sun beautifully. The rear bedroom has patio doors that open out on to the terrace and we take advantage of the mild evenings to enjoy a glass of wine there while the kids are safely tucked-up in bed in their room.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Fabulous accommodation and fabulous area
Just returned from 6 days in the apartment and loved it. The apartment is cool and airy and light. We didn't use the air conditioning so can't comment on that. LOVED the shower!! The balcony is large and gets the sun all afternoon which is just lovely. The kitchen is very well equipped and had everything we needed. Fridge is huge and we even had ice lollies in the freezer. The pool was freezing but as the temperature got up in the afternoon it was lovely to take a dip. Going at the end of April we had the pool (and pool area) to ourselves most of the time and were joined on Saturday afternoon by some other residents. It took us two trips to the pool area to realise there are toilets there!! The Benalmadena area itself is lovely and the apartment is just a short walk down to the main street where we made use of the bus stop (at Flatotel) to travel to Torremolinos and Feungirola. I downloaded the app you suggested for the transport and it worked perfectly (I will be passing this on to friends who have booked a hotel holiday in Benalmadena in the summer!). We walked one day from the apartment into Torremolinos and it was just lovely. Lots of lovely bars and shops on the way and we had several trips down off the main road onto the beach. The water was crystal clear. We ate in Bar76 in Benalmadena and would highly recommend it (I had the prawn and steak salad). We even got a free bottle of (red) wine which was really lovely. It doesn't look much from the outside but it is truly lovely inside and the food is amazing. Feungirola is bustling with lots of really lovely streets criss-crossing over the main square with restaurants and shops. All in all we had a fabulous time and have no hesitation in recommending this area (and the apartment!) to friends. Thank you very much and hope to deal with you again in the near future.
Hi Alan, Thanks a lot for taking the time to leave us a review. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll consider us if you visit the area again.
As we were arriving very late on Saturday evening, Gavin very kindly sent us the keys in the post, which was fantastic.
Absolutely beautiful apartment with everything that you need for a very comfortable holiday. The dvd’s and board games were fantastic for the children. The pool area was very clean, which was not far from the apartment and sunloungers were in the apartment for us to use, the only downside was the poolside toilets wasn’t open. The balcony was huge and we ate outside most days, it was like having another room.The supermarket was only a few minutes walk away and there was a small gift shop too.There was a lovely indoor cafe, very reasonable prices and a pool table, which our grandson really enjoyed playing on the overcast days!! We had a fantastic holiday, but did find it a little too residential for us, but if you are happy to walk to the town (20 mins away) then you couldn’t go wrong staying in this apartment. Amazing!!!!
Thank you Gavin.
Hi Lesley, thank you for your kind words. Really glad that you enjoyed your stay and thank you for treating our apartment with respect :) Best wishes, Gavin
lovely apartment in great area
A lovely apartment within walking distance of a very nice beach. Excellent local bus service, the bus stop was just at the bottom of the road. The owners sent us very comprehensive details of everything with regards to the local area as well as the apartment which was a lovely touch. The apartment was perfect for us. Thank you Gavin and Emily x

Torrequebrada golf course is about 5 minutes walk from the apartment, as is a large Mercadona supermarket. The nearest beach, Playa de la Viborilla, is less than a 10 minute stroll away, as are bus routes to all of the major resorts in Western Malaga.
Buses are frequent and air conditioned and service Malaga airport, Malaga central, Benalmdena, and the resorts of Fuengirola, Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Mijas and Marbella from the stops at the nearby Flatotel roundabout.
