Having recently stayed at this apartment I feel I should mention our experience. As instructed by the owner, Karen, we contacted Julio when we arrived at Malaga airport to inform him we were on our way. He sounded a little surprised at the phone call but eventually he arrived at the apartment to hand over the keys etc. This took approximately 5 minutes. When we asked him to sort the TV out to English he didn't know how to do this and advised us to contact Karen the owner! We did not find him very helpful as we tried to contact him on a couple of occasions thereafter but did not get any response. We did contact Karen via email, who was also unable to help and said she would get someone to sort it. We never saw anyone and as we were staying for 2 weeks it was a little frustrating to say the least. The other issue is transport - you definitely NEED transport to get anywhere otherwise you will require a taxi to the supermarket which costs from 16 - 18 euros round trip and 20 euros to Benalmadena costa. If you walk anywhere it is all up hill and therefore not suitable for the less mobile. There are no shops or restaurants nearby apart from the golf club bar. All in all a very disappointing stay and would not recommend this apartment in view of the lack of communication with the owner/agent.
Karen the owner was easy to reach and help coordinate our stay. The location is away from the busy beach area but accessible to many local activities. Pool area is very family friendly and the golf and tennis are right out the door. Courts are even lit for night time play. The patio area is very large and is nice to sit out in the evening.
This was by far the nicest apartment that my family has ever stayed in and it's our sixth rental. Everything from the key holder to the comfort rate of the beds was great, even the fold out couch was comfy. Nearly 360 degree views of picturesque sea and mountains . The view at night of the pueblo was beautiful with all the lights on the mountain side.Ample outside space in a wrap around balcony and comfort seating for my family of 5 with the addition of two extremely comfortable hammocks. Karen the owner was very prompt in answering any queries we had prior to our holidays and provides renters with a comprehensive information guide before even departing from home.
A spotless apartment block within a gated complex and the added bonus of a fenced off kiddies pool.
A quiet retreat within 8 mins drive of Arroyo de la Miel which is vibrant at night with families enjoying the balmy evenings while children play in the playground. The nightlife or a walk on the promenade is within 12 mins drive of the apartment.Everything is catered for in this location.The train runs directly into Malaga airport and taxis are €5 to the train station.
A stress free rental. We will be back.
