The very best thing about this rental is the host, Brian, who goes above and beyond to provide the most amazing service possible. He was conscious of our every need and helpful beyond what you would expect from a host when we had language problems, needed computer repair, etc. The apartment is lovely, clean and in a perfect location to all of the Old City attractions, and cafes, shops. Highly recommend.
We put down our cases and made a cup of tea with the tea and milk provided, we could have used the espresso machine, yes coffee was also provided. I have never been to a let where so much thought has been put into it. I even found some nail varnish remover in the bathroom cabinet next to shampoo, tissues, hand cream, body loation, suntan cream. You name it, if you happen to have forgotten yours there will be something to use until you go shopping.
Loads of wardrobe space. Extra bath and beach towles, champagne glasses, big wineglasses, plates etc. Napkins, washing powder, the list goes on.
TV loaded with films and music. Super outside eating area for the warmer months.
It was great to have WiFi so you could stay intouch.
Lots to read, maps and ideas for things to do on the table. The house " bible" with how to work everything was great.
Super area, very safe, some fab bars on the same street and hundreds more on every other
street. We only eat in once in two weeks, so much variety in Malaga why miss it?
The beach and harbour just a stroll away (10/15 mins), the fish joints on the beach are well worth a visit.
Did the usual tourist things but much time was spent eating and drinking and just hanging out with the locals. Then home to a comfortable bed or an old movie and a glass of wine.
Brian was a perfect host. We hope to return next year.

This is one of the best holiday apartments we have ever stayed in! After returning home from a fantastic week in Malaga I felt compelled to write a glowing review as Dao, the host has been absolutely superb right from the first point of contact when we asked a few questions about the apartment. He gets back to you very quickly which is brilliant and answers everything you ask him!
The apartment was beautiful and only ten to fifteen minutes walk from the train station. It was very clean, spacious and modern with top quality furnishings. The decor is really nice and the addition of your own private Andalucian patio which is full of beautiful flowers and is a fantastic place to sit with a glass of wine or beer and chill out for a few hours!
The bed was the comfiest I have slept in whilst away for a very long time and I would even go so far as to say it's the best nights sleep I've had in around 12 months as it's so quiet on a night too!
One of things that I loved about Dao's apartment is the addition of little extras such as a huge selection of Spanish music to chill out to and even a vast selection of old movies/kids movies should you just need to relax for a bit out of the sun! We were a little tired one evening so we stayed in and cooked some food and watched 'It started in Napoli' starring Clark Gable...it was really nice! Other little extra touches that were nice were little things like milk, orange juice, tea selection and coffee are all there for you upon arrival....there was even salt, vinegar and oil for cooking! Also, the new addition of the air con unit was fab and made the stay here very comfortable!
Everything is near to the apartment too...there are two supermarkets right next to the apartment, lots of bars and restaurants are nearby and the beach/port are about ten minutes walk. The Alcazaba area (my favourite) is about five minutes walk away and is buzzing with street entertainers a lot of the time! It was great to sit there listening to some fab Spanish music whilst the sun went down behind the Alcazaba!
I would definitely recommend this place and Dao is so great whilst you're there sending you restaurant tips etc. ask him anything....he will find out for you! The other good thing was that he sorted out our damage deposit the same day we arrived home...which is a worry for people sometimes when going through a booking process like this.
A superb apartment made absolutely fantastic by the the hospitality of the host....you will. to be disappointed if you book this place!
Thank you for everything Dao...we hope to return one day! :-)
