The apartment is in a fantastic position, right in the middle of everything yet we didn't find it too noisy.
The view from the large terrace is exactly as shown in the pictures and to wake up to the sound of the waves every morning was special.
The apartment is well equipped for a self-catering holiday and there is UK tv, if you want to catch up with the news, etc. It was presented spotlessly clean and communication with Javier was excellent. Javier also arranged private airport transfers for us and the process couldn't have been easier.
A couple of things to note; one of the bedrooms is actually part of the lounge and separated by a curtain. The other bedroom cannot be reached from within the apartment, as you have to access it via stairs from the terrace. However this does make it seem totally private and it wasn't a problem for us. The thing that did prove problematic were the mattresses. Nobody found the beds comfortable and I think this could be easily addressed, perhaps nobody has brought this to the owners attention yet.
All things considered we were very happy with our choice and we would recommend this rental.
We stayed for six weeks in this beautiful apartment which over looks the sea
front. It is in a nice quiet area close to the shops/bars. There are four places where
you can sit out and look at the sea and one which looks out onto the street
where the shops are at the back. you can sit out with a drink in the evening and watch the world go by. There is also a nice size TV with both Sky sports and BT sports which is nice for the sports fan. There is a bedroom upstairs where you
can lay and look out onto the sea. Beautiful walks stopping at one of the many cafe
or bars that you pass on your way. Javier is very nice and looks after you should you
Stayed over the New Year in this wonderful apartment. The booking process with the owner was excellent - he responded to my questions immediately and answered them fully. On arrival, we landed early, I contacted him and he was there to greet us. The apartment was absolutely spotless - so clean and had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The view from the front is amazing straight onto the beach with a sea view. The front patio is a lovely suntrap for the winter sun and the weather was good enough to even have breakfast on the patio. As you exit the apartment you are on a pedestrian only street with lots of little shops, bars and restaurants; all responsibly priced and lovely Spanish food and great little tapas bars (very cheap). There's also an Indian and Chinese restaurant. It is a 15 minute (slow walk) to the port at Benalmadena or 15 minute walk the other way to Torremolinos town, however you have a wide variety of and restaurants on the front and little street that you don't have to wonder far. The supermarket is a 2 minute walk too. Although there are lots of bars and restaurants once you are in the apartment it is very quiet; we were not aware of noise, even on New Year's eve when there were lots of parties and fireworks. Also it has UK TV so great for the news on a morning. I would highly recommend this apartment - we will definitely go back. Great apartment, great location and wonderful owner who could not do enough to ensure we had a great stay.
Just home after a week in Javiers apartment and what a week we had. The location is the best we have ever had in la carihuela. We had the beach to the front and Calle Bulto to the back. Apartment was great 2 bedrooms and bathroom and spotless too.
It was great to be right in the centre to all the restaurants and bars plus shopping and we could sit an people watch from a choice of 5 terraces.
Would highly recommend this apartment and the owner Javier was so helpful we will definately return again.
