Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Nerja - Maro - Timeless and Unique.

1 Bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps up to 4

The apartment is part of a small complex of c. 26 apartments situated around a large communal pool, in the charming village of Maro, 3km from Nerja, at the far east end of the Costa del Sol. Excellently located where the mountains reach the sea. If tranquillity, accessibility and a hint of romance are what you're looking for, then this is the place for you. Never busy, even in the height of summer. Quiet, with fantastic views to the sea.

About Jenny or Jim

Hello, We are from Scotland and have lived in Nerja since 2005. Jim is retired and Jenny teaches English. We live only a short distance from the apartment and try to meet and greet personally as well as being on hand for any queries. Many of our guests return time and time again and love the apartment and the village of Maro. We consider them friends now. We will always do our very best to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. Looking forward to seeing you here very soon!

Jenny or Jim purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Jenny or Jim chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

We had bought a house on the east side of Nerja and knew we wanted an apartment nearby to rent out. We looked at many places but nothing had the 'wow' factor we wanted. Then one unusually rainy, windy Saturday afternoon in November, we went to see the apartment at Maro Club. As soon as the gate to the complex opened we knew this was something special. We thought the apartment itself would have to be pretty awful to put us off. It wasn't in the best of states but we immediately saw the potential and decided on it there and then. The place blew us away in the rain - just imagine what it's like most of the time in the sun with blue skies, sparkling water and stunning views!

What makes this apartment unique

There is something special about the village of Maro itself and Maro Club has a unique charm. Quiet, peaceful but with very helpful neighbours of different nationalities. There's lots of room to sunbathe or daydream and swim in the large pool which is never busy, even in the height of summer. If you want something to eat, there is a bar/restaurant at the entrance and a few other small eateries/bars in the village too. It's easier to get to know the locals here than in many other places in the area as life is at a slower pace - except when a local fiesta takes place! You just HAVE to join in. It's expected! It isn't far to Nerja, a holiday town 3 km along the coast, by bus or car, where you'll find a more bustling lifestyle, but nothing like Benidorm!! It retains its Spanish flavour. Give the area a go. We're sure you won't be disappointed.

Maro Club Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned from a weeks holiday at Maro Club. Apartment is perfectly situated in the sleepy village with excellent access to Nerja and the beautiful Costa Del Sol countryside. The complex is private, has a lovely pool and is very well maintained. Our apartment provided everything we needed for a relaxing holiday.

Quiet Apartment in Maro Village hard Nerja

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay in the quite little village of Maro.The apartment was perfect for the two of us and we would definitely stay here again. Enjoyed eating in the 3 or 4 restaurants in Maro and and got the bus into Nerja when we wanted a change.We loved the beach at El Canuelo and visited La Herradura a couple of times which is a lovely little town with lots of restaurants and a nice beach.As weather was so hot it was great to have a dip in the pool when we returned to the apartment in the evening.

Jenny and Jim were excellent to deal with answering all our queries and doing everything possible to ensure our stay was enjoyable.

Ruhige, gemütliche Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Die private Anlage mit Pool und Terrasse bietet alles, was man für einen Urlaub erhofft, trotz Straße im Hintergrund dringt kein Verkehrslärm in den Innenbereich, Blick aufs Meer und der kleine nette Ort Maro mit Strandbuchten sind perfekt für einen erholsamen Urlaub.

Sunny and Warm in Winter too!

  • 5 of 5

Are you looking forward to some Spanish summer sun or perhaps escaping the worst of the British winter for something much better? We go in winter and we’ll be staying in Maro for the eighth time.

This apartment ticks all of our boxes. We even have friends to stay and in ten minutes we can turn the storage corridor into a comfortable small single bed room.

When the concertina doors are folded back, the impression is that you have your own extensive patio. We’ve had out-door breakfasts in January and it’s ideal for having friends come up from Nerja for lunch. Although this is a shared area, the few people that come and go are friendly. Privacy is enhanced by the big security door at the entrance to this small delightful complex.

Although we do eat out sometimes we prefer home cooking and this apartment has the modern conveniences that make it possible. There is also a washing machine, iron plus board and a large fridge/freezer. There are portable convector heaters for use in the winter evenings and ceiling fans for the summer.

In the welcoming and quiet village of Maro, the mini-market, is useful for top-up shopping; a wider range of consumables is available in nearby Nerja with a bus stop outside the complex.

If you like serious or short walks this is the ideal location for you. “The Mountains of Nerja” (© Cicerone Press) are on your door-step. I shall be forever grateful to Jim for showing me some of the finest routes in Axarquia.

The swimming pool is as large as it looks on the photos. Sun lovers may prefer one of several beaches which are not far away or for a long day out you could visit the Alhambra and Granada, Málaga city, Córdoba or even Gibraltar.

Jenny and Jim are a friendly welcoming couple who genuinely want you to have a comfortable and relaxing time in this light and airy apartment.

You probably won’t find a better value-for-money small apartment anywhere in Nerja or Maro. We have no hesitation in giving it ten out of ten. Whether or not you are new to the region you should have no hesitation in making your booking for this apartment.

Lovely apartment and situation

  • 5 of 5

Had a 6 week stay in this apartment in 2014, and have stayed there many times before this. It has in fact become home from home for me and I can recommend it highly. The village is tranquil and typically Spanish and the apartment is situated in an attractive, secure complex.

A perfect week in Maro

  • 5 of 5

The week in Jennys and Jims appartement was perfectly relaxing. The village is quiet, the beach empty (this time of year) and beautiful. The mountains just behind the house make for great hikes. The appartement itsself tastefully designed, had everything needed. The neighbours pleasant, the pool very nice.

So, I fully recommend it and I will probably come back.

The charming, unspoilt village of Maro (pop.1000) lies 3km east of Nerja, approx. 50 minutes drive east from Malaga Airport. Maro's secluded beach, ideal for snorkelling, is reached by a winding road down the cliffs. The nearby Sierra Almijara provides excellent hillwalking, while the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevada(near Granada) are a scenic one and a half hours drive away. The sea and the mountains act as a dramatic backdrop to the lush farmland and the traditional whitewashed houses and narrow streets of the village itself.

There are a few small general stores, two hotels and a handful of family- run restaurants. Nerja is only a short bus ride away where there are beaches, shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes.

The nearest golf course is 15 minutes by car along the motorway (Baviera Golf).
