This wonderful apt has been in our family for over 20yrs I am a busy community nurse, both my husband and I work hard, and for that reason we are not able to spend as much time in Los Boliches as we would like. We have 2 daughters (grown up now) and over the years we have had many fantastic holiday here. We are hoping to spend more time there once we retire as did my parents for many happy years.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 1980
Why Owner chose Fuengirola
The apartment has been in my family for over 20 years. We love the location - shops, beach, sea, sea views, morning sun on the balcony, flat easy walking. Flight time only 2.5 hours from the UK, cheap train (Approx 3.5 Euro to the Airport each). Really sorry but we dont accommodate children the balcony is high and not suitable for children.

Home from home in a perfect location...
This apartment literally made our stay in Los Boliches the perfect holiday. It really is a home away from home (my 15 year old said as much) with everything we could possibly need. Situated a 5 minute walk from the train station - we caught a train from the airport for €2.70.
On arrival, the first thing we were drawn to was the balcony and were completely blown away by the immediate proximity of the beach and the breathtaking view. The apartment itself is furnished with everything you need - two spacious bedrooms , a lounge/dining area and kitchen. This made it a welcome retreat after a day on the beach. We had chairs, parasols and cool bag available to make every trip comfortable and our drinks chilled. We spent most of our days relaxing on the beautiful beach which was spotless every day. So easy to retreat for lunch and return again as it was literally at the bottom of the stairs.
We spent many an evening relaxing on the balcony watching the world go by. Equally there are an abundance of shops and restaurants along the front and in the many side streets. The supermarket was just behind the train station and had everything we needed - the shopping trolley in the apartment made bringing it home easier. Everything really has been considered staying here !
The owner was a pleasure to deal with and gave clear instructions on how to locate and enjoy the time we spent here.
We will definitely go back again as we feel there is so much more we didn’t see.
A perfect holiday !
Carlita, Los Boliches - Julie Dickson -
Unfortunately I was unable to stay in this apartment as planned. However, I did view the property beforehand and was very impressed with everything ie great location, beautiful clean spacious apartment (home from home). I will most definitely be booking this apartment at my first opportunity to travel again.
Also the owners who I met could not have been nice enough (and I travel to this area often and they are highly thought off by the locals) and nothing is too much trouble to them to help (as I found out when I could not travel).
Disappointed I did not stay here but there will be other time I am sure. Look forward to staying in this lovely apartment.
So good we came
Lovely comfortable apartment just as in photos. Clean with nice modern bathroom, plenty of towels left out for us. Good comfortable beds and sofas and the pretty dried flowers and ornaments add to the homely feel. Kitchen fully equipped should you wish to cook there is a gas hob and electric oven. We were grateful to find sugar, tea bags and coffee in cupboard (along with other basics such as kitchen roll) so we could have a cuppa before going shopping! Wifi easy to organise and worked well for our laptops/iPad and TV. Heaters useful for a winter stay, though the place holds the heat very well so not needed often.
We went for 3 weeks from the beginning of December and loved it so much we have just returned from 3 weeks this January. We didn't expect wall to wall sunshine but we're lucky with weather, so made good use of the balcony. Comfy seats, and the sun rises straight ahead, great for sunrise photos. The whole block is well maintained and clean. Communication with the owner Debby was excellent, with good instructions for getting there and how everything worked. We have already asked for an extended stay this October. We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely apartment.
Dirty and very dated
Very dated dirty bathroom and kitchen food opened left in fridge crockery dirty kitchen utensils still had dried food on them including the frying pan etc this totally ruined our Xmas and new year the place in our opinion needs to be totally updated and scrubbed clean the owners should take a surprise trip and check this out
We are devastated and horrified to receive this damning review. We don’t understand why we were not contact immediately you found the cleaning issues, The welcome sheet we sent you with the keys clearly requests that, should you find any problems with cleaning or encounter any concerns to contact us directly or the cleaner directly, both numbers are on the sheet. 'Owner Direct' also would have addressed any issues. If this had been done we could have rectified the matter immediately and compensated you for any inconvenience caused. Finding out almost two weeks later left us feeling shocked and denied us the opportunity to rectify the problem and find out what has gone wrong.
You also stated that the apartment was very dated:- at the time of booking 'guests' should view photographs in the ad, which clearly show each room, these should be used to make a judgement on its suitability of the apartment before booking. We found this deeply shocking having totally updated the lounge furniture fixtures and fittings last year. Both bedrooms have had new beds and mattresses Rugs etc. The entrance porch/foyer has also been totally updated as have the lifts and each floor corridor upgraded.
Our regular cleaner who went in to clean once you left (not knowing about your complaint) wanted us to know that he had to charge us extra as you had used almost all our large stock of towels in the cupboard and you had left bags of rubbish in the apartment. Again the welcome sheet clearly asks you to remove your rubbish when you leave and the use of extra towels will be charged for.
We are sorry this couldn’t have been resolved in a timelier manner and feel your review is harsh and unjust.
Everything you could wish for with home comforts.
My husband and i stayed here with our two teenage children,for two weeks in July/august. The apartment had everything you could wish for and need for our two week stay .On arrival we found a lovely clean inviting spacious apartment with amazing views from the balcony plenty of clean bedding and towels with a very informative welcome information pack to read. The location was just across the road from the beach which was very clean and always had sunbeds available through the day.The location was excellent lots of bars and restaurants and supermarkets and a lovely bakery where we bought fresh bread and pastries for breakfast . It was a short walk in to fuengirola where we found lots of things to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and the apartment made it. We will definitely book this apartment again in the future and the owners were very friendly and helpful too.
Nice flat but not cleaned so very dirty
Good location good description poor hygiene throughout the flat. Filthy bathroom.large amount of fluff under bed dirty fridge and cooker.left over food in kitchen and holiday ruined because of this.
We were notified of this guests concerns at the time ,(October 2015) and were obviously horrified. We addressed this immediately with our cleaner and believe it was rectified within hours. This is the first complaint we have ever had and hopefully the last..
