“Lovely apartment, with outstanding terrace affording great views of the Castle.”
Reviewed January 25, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had a lovely stay at this apartment, which is modern and compact and has everything one needs. The outstanding feature of the apartment is a large terrace with views over to the woods and the Gibralfaro Castle,
which is lit up at night.
The apartment is in in quiet residential area, but close to a number of good quality bars, cafes and restaurants. It is also well-placed for the Plaza de la Merced, where the Fundacion Picasso: Casa Natal is located, alongside a variety of eating places, which are complemented by a sumptuous food
and drink offer in the market itself.
We very much hope to return in the not too distant future.

“Great apartment with a beautiful view”

people found this review helpful

My girlfriend and I stayed at this great apartment for a week. We received a very warm welcome and got some excellent tips about local restaurants and tapas bars.

The apartment has everything one could ask for, and I would really like to highlight the beautiful view from the terrace. Watching the sun set behind the trees sorrounding the Gilbralfaro Castle is a sight for gods - and a glass of wine during this is highly recommended.

I would like to thank Olga and her family for being sublime hosts during our stay, and I would recommend them to anyone!

“A Fantastic Apartment for a Week's Stay in Malaga”
Reviewed November 2, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

person found this review helpful

A well equipped apartment with a fantastic terrace enjoying south facing views over the Malaga castles. Located in a quiet residential area but only 10 minutes walk to Merced Plaza and the first of Malaga's numerous restaurants. Really helpful owners who provided useful information before and during the stay, and also arranged the (really) early taxi to ensure we were able to catch the plane home!!!

“Excellent small apartment with a great terrasse”
Reviewed October 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

people found this review helpful

Everything is clean, functional and well maintained. The terrasse gives you morning sun and sun most of the day wit a great view to the castle and the neighbourhood. Quiet neighbourhood and bus to the citycenter just outside the apartment. It takes about 10 minutes. You can even walk down hill to the citycenter. Up hill gives you the exercise of the day.

Landlord Olga is very friendly, serviceminded and speaks English. No problems at all.

You share the terrasse with the neighbour-apartment but its divided whit big plants in pots, so not really a problem. Supermarked, baker and fruit- and vegetableshop just downhill 5 minutes walk.

“Big sunny terrace with a view to the Gibralfaro mountain”

people found this review helpful

The appartment was very tidy, newly renovated and everything functioned well. The building was quiet, no noise whatsoever. I really enjoyed the lovely and peaceful terrace! The location is very near to La Plaza de la Merced which I found excellent because I visited many times El Teatro Cervantes. The appartment is located up on a hill, so you get good excercise walking back home. And the landlady Olga! She was so kind, helpful and frendly, I don't find the way to express my gratitude. In the appartment there were all kind of useful information about the local bus, taxis, restaurants. Btw the taxis were cheap and easy to order. I recommend warmly Olga's appartment and when I visit Malaga the next time, I shall see if the appartment is available!

Interior design is quite elegant although the space is limited. Kitchen and bath well functioning. But the peak is the large terrace with a wonderful view to two small wooded mountains, one crowned by old arab castel. Hostess Olga is quickly responding and extremely helpful.
