In one of the best positions of the entire coast, our fabulous Penthouse apartment has stunning views over Marbella Marina and the beach which is a few paces from the front door. Great views even when sitting in the living/dining room and from the kitchen, and both bathrooms. You will see fabulous sunrises and sunsets and Gibraltar and North Africa often appear so close. There are equally stunning views to the mountains from the master bedroom.
Beautiful 'Old Town Marbella' and Orange Square with its wonderful shopping is 4 or five minute stroll away. You can walk along the coast to Puerto Banus along the marble Paseo Maritimo right outside our door and there are countless lovely Restaurants everywhere. The Sky Blue ferry (opposite the apartment) runs regularly between Marbella and Puerto Banus.
We offer a private parking space with lift access directly to apartment door but of course you don't need a car as you can walk everywhere!
We have recliner chairs with cushions and table for use on the terrace. There is sunshine all day. During the winter months the sun is lower in the sky and fills the living room with sun with is wonderful for relaxing and sunbathing, half in the room half on the terrace. In the summer it is higher so is only on the terrace, which keeps the apartment much cooler!
The Air con/Heater is operated by a coin in the slot system which costs 1 euro for 4 hours. It is obviously more than this to run but it is designed to make guests aware of not leaving it running with all the and doors open which would break the machine. With windows on all three sides the lovely sea breezes mean air con is not usually needed. There are ceiling fans in both bedrooms.
The beach is so pretty and clean and lovely for swimming, that a pool is not necessary. Most pools in Spain are not heated so have limited use. It is perfect for little children as it is a cove created by the Marina breakwater so has much calmer water than elsewhere and is very shallow at the edges. It is also fabulous for proper swimming for adults!
There is a lovely children's play area on the beach and two restaurants on the sand, serving food and drink to you on beach loungers if you wish.
Our beautiful cove beach is less than 30 seconds from the Front Door with beach beds/parasols and restaurants. You can also take your towel (Please bring your own Beachtowel as we don't supply them) and lie on the sand. Yoga and TaiChi are practiced regularly outside apartment. Many more beaches and beach bars are easily accessed by walking along the Paseo (or the beach of course) in either direction.
