About the property

Townhouse in Burriana, Nerja, Costa del Sol, Spain - 300 Meters To The Main Beach And Within Walking Distance To The Balcon De Europa And Old Town

Hi, my name is David Culhane, I am the owner of the property. I absolutely love living in Nerja! I bought the house off plans way back in 1999 and moved here as a permanent base after the build was completed, in 2004. You can contact me directly at my private email address which is : and I will personally answer any and all questions you may have. Please read on;

In the summertime I usually return to Ireland each year for the three months of June, July and August, so I rent my gorgeous home in Nerja for those months. PLEASE NOTE THAT I CAN ONLY ACCEPT BOOKINGS FROM A SATURDAY TO A SATURDAY.

Please continue;

Most rental Houses and apartments have that 'rental property' feel to them, a sort of emptiness with no real style or character, so holiday people are delighted when they walk into my house and find a colorful, unique, comfortable and cozy home and are surprised at all the equipment and gadgets, and especially by the warm style.

Holiday time is a very special time with loved ones and the setting should be right! This house is a home. The name of the house is 'Snugboro'.


Luxuriously appointed townhouse in Burriana 5 min walk to beach. Spacious 34 lounge with sun-terrace suitable for dining. Rooftop Solarium with loungers, both main terraces have all day sunshine due to being an end house and larger in size. Has side steps directing to the pool. On the top deck, with sun-loungers there is also a shower and BBQ. Large bathroom shower/toilet/bidet and downstairs separate shower-room/toilet. Hairdryer, towels, beach-towels. Full stereo sound system in both lounge and master bedroom - free wireless internet connection - air-conditioning and ceiling fans. Master bedroom equipped with MP3/i Pod stereo sound system. Smart TV, Satellite H.D. Digital Flat screen, with NETFLIX, so everything available by remote and Wifi - childrens' channels, all the latest Movies and TV series to have a cozy night at home. Beautiful blue granite kitchen with all mod cons. Large communal pool, private garage. Spectacular sea and mountain views. Very private roof sun lounge with BBQ and h/c shower. Below the house and next to the garage, there is a very cool chill-out Den with stax of books for taking time-out and relaxing quietly and there is also a full size American pool table. This very comfortable and stylish townhouse on four levels, is approx. 350 meters from the main beach which has sports facilities such as Scuba diving, canoeing, children and adult adventure trips including horse-riding, there are also bars, shops, supermarkets, cafes/restaurants. The house is a private home so does not have the spartan feel of a rental property, is warm, tastefully furnished and very stylish. The owner is a designer and set stylist. There are hotels near-by providing entertainment and there are more than 100 restaurants in the quaint town of Nerja which is a five minute taxi ride from the house, or less than a half hour walk. Nerja Town steps back from the beautiful Balcon de Europa, an ancient land-mark that towers over the Mediterranean sea.

Why David Culhane. You can contact me directly by email: chose Nerja

'Snugboro' is by all accounts a gorgeous townhouse and the Summer rental prices are extremely inexpensive when compared to other properties and locations. Every aspect and detail of the house is designed to be exceptionally warm, unique, comfortable and cosy house. Fuentesol (fountain of sun) is a quiet urbanisation, of 27 houses, only 6 are holiday rentals, owners mostly live abroad.

The large lounge terrace, with plants, is very comfortable for 4 people to eat meals outside and overlooks the large swimming pool so that parents can watch their children at play. The main beach of Nerja, Burriana is just a walk away (beach towels and toys including bats and balls, buckets and spades, sea mattresses, light-weight beach chairs to name just a few, are stored in the private garage below the house and the 'Den' chill-out space is separate to the garage and has a full size American table (no charge) and couches either side of a large coffee table to play cards and games (which are stored in the twin bedroom wardrobe). The colourful ceiling strip-lights are above a genuine parachute which covers the whole ceiling. There is also a raised double day bed to relax in the super-cool temperature beneath the house with lots of books to read.

A 5 minute walk brings you to the main road and a large supermarket called 'Supersol', also a five minute walk to the supermarket Mercadona.

Burriana Beach, the main beach in Nerja, is at the bottom of the road, where you can find a small Supermarket, many Restaurants, Bars, Shops, Boutique's, Diving school, Adventure Cafe with Horse Riding, Canoeing, Organised Walks etc. There are many Seafront Cafes and Restaurants including Ayo's, an open-air Paella seafood Restaurant where you can eat as much as you want, one price!

The shortest and most scenic walk to town and the Balcon de Europa, is about 15 minutes from Burriana along the coast. By the main road it takes about half an hour, taxi ride from town costs about 8 Euro to the house

What makes this house unique

The 'Top Deck' sun terrace is a perfect place to sun-tan all day at home and there's a roof-top shower for when you need to cool off, (hot water also, in case you want to shampoo before going indoors). Beautiful views of both mountains and sea, it's very private and is not over-looked. There is also a built-in Bar-B-Q for evening snacks under the stars.

The lounge Terrace with table and benches, is large enough for a family of four to dine out-doors. From there you can also overlook the swimming pool to keep an eye on children.

This is a lovely place to sit under the sun umbrella, chill out, have a drink, relax and read.

The house is beautifully situated at the South East end of the urbanisation, closest to the sea and so has sunshine all day long. Semi-detached with flowers and trees at the side, easiest access to the swimming pool. Fantastic views.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Have yet to hear that any guests were anything but totally delighted and pleasantly surprised with the comfort and luxury of my house and how ideally situated it is between beach and town but at the same time quietly secluded and very private!

Brillant -also 2nd time around!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time staying in Snugbro, just like the first it was fantastic.

David, the owner could not have been more helpful when contacting either via phone or email, the couple of teething problems we had (one of which I had caused), were looked after quickly and efficiently.

Snugbro has everything a holidaying couple or small family (2 children), could wish for including Satellite TV, including Netflix, Wi-Fi, air con, fully fitted kitchen, washing machine and well furnished throughout.

David's taste in decor is very different and makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in the door - a true home from home. The underground garage is also a real benefit in this area as it is on a hill and car hire would be advisable, unless you are fit and mobile enough.

The pool area is small but well tended and designed and is right in front of the townhouse.

Fantastic home for a great holiday with a great owner.

Great family accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Snugboro for 17 days in August. great views from the roof top as well as the balcony. Close to mercadona and supersol.

Great pool which was very quiet most days and felt like a private pool at times. The garage is full of beach games and chairs and lilos which kept my kids happy. Also took great advantage of Netflix for when they just wanted to chill.

The townhouse is at the top of quite a hill and then a steep driveway so walking back from the beach could be quite arduous but a taxi at night was only 5euro. Great mixture of restaurants and bars at Burriana if you didn't want to venture into Nerja. Bar El Fuego - Bakers and Olas for football. good communication with the owner and his team in Spain who are on hand if there are any problems / would recommend a visit.

Great house in lovely Nerja

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the town house in Nerja. The house is about 5 mins downhill to the beach and depending on your fitness about 10/15 mins back! The whole town spreads up the hill and is beautiful. The beach is lovely with lots of restaurants and reasonably priced sun beds (although David kindly has beach umbrellas etc available for use).

The town is across the other side of the valley, but we were still able to walk despite the climb there but downhill on the way back (of course you could get a taxi). There are so many restaurants and beautiful streets that come alive at night, the hardest bit is choosing!

The house offers everything you would need. A fully equipped kitchen, a balcony with dining area for outside eating and a roof terrace for sunbathing. Everything was clean and comfortable. The only negative was that the 2nd bedroom didn't have air conditioning, just a ceiling fan.

David was very helpful and responded to emails quickly for any queries.

This was the first time we didn't hire a car which was great. We prebooked Nerja taxis who were professional and reasonably priced. The large supermarket was a short walk away (fortunately downhill on the way back!) and the tennis club opposite this had a Happy Hour from 5 to 8 where beers were €2 and a large glass of wine only €1!

We had a great holiday and would recommend the house and Nerja. I am sure we will be back! Thanks David for sharing your house and making it a home from home.

Owner's Response: Thank you Carole and Patrick! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful holiday in Nerja and enjoyed staying in the luxurious home from home feel of 'Snugboro'. I have had the property fully updated and decorated both inside and out earlier this year and it's a real pleasure. There's always a welcome on the mat. David.....

Fantastic great decor, lovely complex

  • 5 of 5

WE loved the property and complex, it was well decorated throughout, had all the extras you could want including Wi-Fi, Netflix, British TV. The pool area was generally unoccupied and beautifully turned out, as was the property. Everything you need and great owner who was at the end of the phone for any questions. Brilliant, going back this year for 3 weeks.

Frequent visitors to Nerja and like to try new Villas each time if possible.

The Villa is fantastically situated and the grounds and pool are tended to daily.

The accommodated is of a great size but unfortunately need some TLC to bring up to date and standard.

Limited kitchen ware, worn furniture and bedding and not as clean as most Villas....however David did state that this was to be rectified soonest. Once attanded to would not hesitate to recommend this Villa and give a ***** rating :)

David was a very welcoming owner who made the stay comfortable and cosy. Facilities great - very comfortable beds, if a little short for taller guests. Location easy to find and although a steep ascent to reach the apartment from Burriana beach, the walk back from town using the main road was easy. Overall a good find which we would probably use again

The main beach of Buriana is a 10 minute walk approx and has a Supermarket, lots of shops and stacks of restaurants!

Canopied sunbeds with comfortable mattresses can be hired on the beach. Carabeo Beach is a walk along the beach to the right towards the Balcon de Europa and is a more natural beach. H2O is a nice cafe/cocktail bar where free Wi-fi is available. There are many beautiful natural beaches just a short drive away toward Granada including a naturist family beach with 2 restaurants.


Malaga Airport is aprox a 45 minute drive from Nerja. If you plan to spend your time in Nerja, car hire is not essential and traffic can be cruel. A taxi ride from town center to Fuentesol is €8 and takes less than 10 minutes, walking takes about half an hour. Daytime there's a short-cut along the coast.

Airport Transport can be arranged for you.

There is a regular bus service to Malaga every hour, the old City where Picaso was born is worth a visit. Also bus to Frigliana, a must see is 15 min by bus and has many times won the top prize for 'Pueblo Blanco' best while mountain village. There are lotsof restaurants and shops. It a place wgere many artists, writers and musicians live. Has wonderful views down to the sea and across the Sierra Navada mountains and other ranges.


The beautiful and quaint old town of Nerja reaches back from the famous 'Balcon de Europa', and has many up-market shops, bars, hundreds of restaurants and everything one could possibly require, about a 30 minutes walk, a taxi ride will cost €10. There are 3 large supermarkets, 2 in town, one near to the house.

The house is situated between the main N340 road (opposite Supersol supermarket and down the road from Hotel Nerja Club) and the beach at Burriana. Drive-in outer and private garage.

Further Details:

There are banks and ATM machines within walking distance. The famous Caves of Nerja are 4km away and there are many couch tours available from Nerja to the Al Hambra in Granada etc. The closest large supermarket is 'Supersol' on the main road and a 10 minute walk, the best supermarket is in town, called 'Marcadona'. There is a Sunday car-boot sale nearby which is the best place to buy second-hand books and has 100+ stalls of all sorts of interesting stuff and a snack bar nearby. Frigliana is the cutest 'Pueblo Blanco' White Village, and you can catch a bus there. Lots of lovely restaurants and cafe bars along winding cobbled streets with some tourist shops, honey and wine shop, herbal shop etc. Look through the local free magazines for info on markets, bus time-tables to Malaga etc.

The main beach, Burianna has a large variety of cafes, snack bars, restaurants and bars.

Children's play areas on the beach, volleyball, slides etc. Hundreds of comfortable sunbeds with sunshades, Lifeguards. There are lots of other more secluded beaches nearby and especially along the direction of Granada, a breath-taking drive.

Two markets per weeks, Sunday is bric-a-brak and the Tuesday market is tourist stuff and fresh food stalls, great prices for gifts to take home!
