Bedrooms 2
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type apartment

About the property

The apartment has 3 rooms and a bathroom, all of them with windows offering views of the 'sierra' (mountain range). The first (and biggest) room is the living room/kitchen, which has a large sofa, several chairs, a dining table and a television. There is no lack of details here, with a marble worktop, a sink, a microwave, a vitro-ceramic cooker, a freezer, both high and low storage spaces for storing food, and kitchen utensils. The bedrooms sleep 2 and 4 respectively. The first one is fitted with a large double bed; the second one has two bunk beds, sleeping 2 people each. Both of the bedrooms have spacious fitted cupboards and windows towards the outside. The bathroom is completely equipped. It has a washbasin, a bidet, a bathtub with a matted crystal screen and all you could need for storing bath towels and bath accessories. Above the door, there is a self-contained heating. Just like the other rooms, the bathroom has a window towards the outside. All of the components in this property are high quality. All doors are perfectly finished to avoid airflows when they are closed. The same goes for the windows, which are isolated from noises and outdoor cold. The modern heating system installed in all of the rooms assures an optimal temperature at any moment of the day: this will make your stay even more comfortable. The apartment is, without any doubt, ideal for having an unforgettable holiday. The building also provides a garage and ski storage area. The heated pool, sauna, and hot tub are located inside the building.

About Carlos Baca Moreno Torres

My name is Carlos Baca. I live in Malaga, where I study audio-visual communication. I have been renting our apartment on Homelidays for 5 years now. We like to ski, so the Sierra Nevada really has always been a part of our history. For this reason, we bought the apartment, which lies at a prime location next to the chair lift. It also has a swimming pool: very important for relaxing the muscles afters skiing. My elder siblings work in Madrid, and my younger brother and I work and study in Malaga. We do not have time to ski as much as we would like to, which is why we rent our house when it is unoccupied.

Carlos Baca Moreno Torres purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Carlos Baca Moreno Torres chose Granada Province (Costa Tropical)

We are a family of skiers and we love the Sierra Nevada. We rent our apartment when we are not using it; this helps us to maintain its optimal condition.

What makes this apartment unique

For its location along the chair lift, there is no hassle with dragging along your skis. It is sunny and south oriented. Spectacular, large, indoor swimming pool with sauna and hot tub, and views of the crystalline ski resort.

First of all, I would like to say the owner is very accommodating and helpful and kept in touch by email throughout and returned the security deposit in a timely manner. However, I was disappointed in the property, it was smaller than I expected, I would say it was adequate but it was not a comfortable stay. The kitchen area is very small and not very well equipped if you want to cook every day. The apartment was extremely cold when we first arrived, and the first night we sat with blankets round us to keep warm! The TV is Spanish only channels, and my Spanish is not very good, so it would have been nice to have a DVD player or some other form of entertainment - no books or games supplied. The double bed in the main bedroom is a small double bed, and due to lack of space one person has to climb over the bed to get into it! It was very convenient to have the ski lift right outside the apartment block. This block is more suitable for young people, as we found it very noisy at night, I was woken several times by people coming back in the small hours of the morning, as late as 3.30am, talking very loudly, laughing and generally being very inconsiderate, we complained twice to two different apartments, one next door and one upstairs. I am not sure what the smoking rules are in Spain, but it was obvious that people smoke in the building which could plainly be smelt. The hot water tank is quite small and didn't supply enough hot water for the 3 of us in the morning. The apartment looks a bit tired and could do with some new dining furniture and sofas. We didn't use the pool, but had a quick look and it looked very nice and a very reasonable price.

Sierra Nevada

  • 4 of 5

Apartamento limpo a nossa chegada. Acesso aos meios mecanicos proximos, o que foi muito pratico! Piscina agradavel com jacuzzi, o preço de 5 euros foi aceitavel e as minhas filhas (3 e 6 anos) nao pagaram. Elas adoraram!! Um apartamento ideal para uma família de 4 pessoas. Dispoe de um guarda skis.

Tenho de dizer que o Sr Juan e o seu filho são muito simpaticos. Esqueci -me dos meus oculos no apartamento e estes foram-me devolvidos pelo correio. Obrigada!!!

Estupendo apartamento!!

  • 5 of 5

Increíble!!!Hemos estado el puente de diciembre en este apartamento, la verdad que no esperábamos estar tan bien situados y tener tanto gusto de estar allí alojados. Todo lo tiene cerca,el telesilla esta justo al lado, el supermercado cruzando la calle, una de las mejores pizzerias en la misma calle, no se puede pedir más. Y calidad - precio insuperable. Todo tipo de detalles en el apartamento, vamos estupendo. VOLVEREMOS!!

Casa en sierra nevada

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado muy a gusto en la casa. Está muy bien y la verdad es que tener garage es muy cómodo. Hemos esquiado tres días en pistas y otros tres días hemos hecho esquí de travesía, y tanto para una cosa como para la otra, es salir de casa y ponerte los esquís. La telesilla está a 20 metros y para hacer travesía nos poniamos los esquís a menos de 100 metros de casa.

La piscina con jacuzzi es una gozada después de esquiar. Hay muy buen ambiente en los bares que hay alrededor de casa, y hay un supermercado en frente de casa.

Es la segunda vez que alquilo la casa y si tengo opción volveré.

The Sierra Nevada ski resort (only 25 minutes away from Granada) is situated at the end of the Monachil community border; it can be reached over the highest road in Europe. With three both national and international airports (Granada, Malaga and Seville), a train station and a bus station nearby, Granada is a perfectly interconnected city. Nowadays, thanks to a modern motorway network, we are less than 4 hours away from Madrid. La Ruta del Veleta (luxurious) and Pizzeria Tito Luigi are, among several others restaurants, only a few metres away from the house. The apartment is situated near nightclubs, small food and beverage shops, and so on. Access to the chair lift nearby.
