Right outside the accomodation is a large open air swimming pool and tennis court for the use of guests only. A medium sized resort, Caleta has a number of cafes,bars and restaurants serving good food (especially fish and seafood) all within walking distance. Local shops and a bank are also nearby. Views to the marina can be seen from the balcony which has a table and seating for 4 persons; breakfast in the sunshine! The 3rd floor apartment, bright & secure in a 4 floor building with lift and intercom entry, also has private parking for guests. No busy roads to cross for beach access. Sorry, no pets.

Local Lifestyle: Caleta De Velez is a versatile holiday location on the beach with the fishing harbour and marina just a few minutes walk. The apartment is perfect for those wishing to walk on holiday as all the local facilities are no more than 5 mins walk away. There is a small supermarket, bakery, newsagents, tobaconists and several bar restaurants within walking distance. And a beautiful walk along the beachside promenade to Torre del Mar - around 15 mins walk. On Saturday morning the street market sells everything from local crafts to fresh fruit and vegetables.

Velez Malaga & Torre del Mar: Torre del Mar is a much larger resort with entertainment for all ages. It is reached by walking approx 15 mins along the beachside walkway or is a 5 min drive. Enjoy beachside bar/restaurants serving fresh fish & seafood. Also Indian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese and of course, Spanish restaurants. There is a good street market on Thursday.

Cycle hire, go karting and horse riding is also popular. A waterpark is also open in July/August.

Velez Malaga has a large modern shopping centre with boutiques, huge Eroski supermarket, tenpin bowling and multi cinema complex. There is a modern tram service between the shopping centre and Torre del Mar. Or drive by car in 5 mins.

Exploring Andalucia: Caleta De Velez is a central coastal base from which to visit the most popular sights of Andalucia. Granada and the Alhambra Palace are a must see day trip, with the Sierra Nevada ski resort a short drive from Granada city centre.

Malaga city cente is exciting, cultural and has great shopping and tapas bars! Visit the castle and the Picasso museum. Nerja has great beaches and famous caves - just a short drive.

A good motorway network connects Malaga to Antequerra, Cordoba and Seville; for those wanting to travel a little further. Marbella & Pueto Banus, to the West of Malaga, is also a fun day trip.

N.B. There is a good and inexpensive bus service operating both East & West from the apartment. Visit both Malaga & Nerja without needing to take the car.

About Carl Cullimore

We, Carl and Maria Cullimore, came to Comares in 1999 with the idea of buying a holiday home…and we are still here!

We continue to be thrilled by the views and beautiful, colourful landscape of Andalusia. The white washed village of Comares is both unique and unspoiled yet only an hour from Malaga. The perfect rural base to relax and explore.

La Paz, our finca meaning “peace” was renovated and a swimming pool was built on the hillside. We converted part of the farmhouse to a self contained studio overlooking the pool and our holiday rentals idea became a reality when we welcomed our first guests in 2002.

Our next project was Villa Romo, spacious accommodation with pool and popular with families. Friends owning properties locally and wishing to rent their villas for holidays have entrusted us with the keys and management responsibilities.

We are proud to showcase a small, quality selection of individual villas, beach houses, apartments and even a seaside Fisherman’s Cottage. We provide a professional, bespoke service which can include the rental, marketing and maintenance of holiday properties in the Axarquia region of Andalusia.

Please visit our website www.andalusianrentals.com

What makes this apartment unique

close to all amenities. 3 minutes from a Sandy beach and a small but quaint port..Good eateries around.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property many times, and have not needed to look for better accommodation. It's location is perfect for us, in as much as it's in a quiet flat location. There are no noisy bars, just peace and quiet. The flat is well maintained, though a more up to date TV (flat screen) would make it perfect. Just around the corner, you have a restaurant on the sea front called the Eclipse. Good food, nice and cheap. Across the road one way, you have a convenient ALDI store. Venture the other way, and you will find three more bars, also good food. We are booked again in January 17, for a one months stay, where will again meet the very friendly owners, Carl and Maria, who have always made us very welcome. Thinking of booking this apartment? then go ahead. You won't be disappointed. Dave and Sue. (frequent stayers) First booked in 2011.

Owner's Response: Its always a pleasure to see regular visitors return..This great review is informative & written by a couple who know the area well. The old TV has served us well but in December we will be investing in a new flat screen TV to compliment the DVD player, UK & Spanish TV and WiFi that is already provided. Thanks Dave & Sue and see you next year! Carl

Don't miss out on a great bargain holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Met at flat by Mrs. Cullimore. Tea, coffee and a beer on hand. Flat extremely clean and tidy. The town has everything needed for a holiday. Plenty to do and see in the surrounding area. Surprised to find some English TV programmes, that was a bonus. We have got to go back. We didn't stay long enough.

Perfect location and great accommodation

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for the business I came to do in this area, with very easy access to roads, shops and all amenities. The apartment is equipped with everything I needed for my 7 day stay and it has an ample car park. However, although I only used it for business purposes this time, I will certainly come back for a longer stay in the Summer as the beach is only a short walk from it so you get the best of both worlds.

Owner's Response: The beach apartment really does enjoy a great location within a few minutes walk of local shops, bakery, new agents, bar restaurants and internet cafes....and of course the beach! The bus stops to Malaga & Nerja are also very close. Thanks and hope to see you again....

Caleta de Velez
Car: not necessary

Caleta de Velez is both the local fishing port for Velez Malaga and a pleasure marina for motor cruisers and sailboats. The quaint marina is situated 2 kms East of Torre del Mar - a 20 minute walk along the seafront promenade.

Nearby are several small bar/restaurants serving a good selection of local dishes, especially local fish & seafood. Local shops, including a newsagent, grocers, tobacconist, a gym and a bank are a short walk. There is an Aldi and Lidl conveniently situated not too far from the apartment. The saturday local market is excellent.

Nerja and Torrox are approx 15 minutes drive East. Granada, and the Alhambra Palace, is around 90 minutes by car. The cities of Seville & Cordoba are approx 2 hours inland. As is Marbella and Puerto Banus, to the West of Malaga city - which itself is 40 minutes drive from the apartment. Buses run regularly from Caleta to both Malaga and Nerja.
