“What a lovely holiday”

I was really looking forward to my solo break and I was not disappointed. The weather was sunny every day, and Andre's lovely pool was fantastic. Of course I had it to myself, what a luxury! Andre meets all his guests who arrive by train, and immediately whisks them off to a well stocked reasonably priced supermarket to stock up with all the food and drink you'll need. Tip, either have a lot of euros or a debit card to hand to pay for it all. Take advantage of this as the local supermarkets closer to the apartment are nowhere nearly as good.
I went wanting a nice quiet break and I got just that. Andre is a real sweetie, he's about if you want him, and not if you don't. The apartment itself is fab, so well laid out, everything you need there, and the outside space that comes with it is wonderful, the roof area, and another terrace of your own. The pictures Andre had on his ad are authentic and are a true reflection of the apartment and the area. For British visitors, there's Sky, and you can have net access, so bring your laptop if you want to, I will on my next visit. I cannot recommend this gem highly enough for the price. The apartment is perfect for a couple, a solo traveller like myself, and maybe 2 friends who don't mind sleeping in the same room. Definitely not for anyone who would have difficulty with a lot of stairs!

Management Response

It would be better if the number of actual steps is not given,since not proven, and that 70 is replaced by "some". The steps can however be avoided by walking 10 minutes along a partly winding road at no discomfort.

“Tranquil, hidden gem!!”

Just returned from a last minute relaxing week, lovely fully equipped and spacious for two, nice pool, and rooftop bathing area. Train to surrounding areas eg Benalmadina a couple of euros and 3 per hour. Just 10/15 mins walk downhill to beach bars and a sprinkling of restaurants.
5 mins walk to English supermarket...has a bar and mini eatery inside nice English breakfast. Would highly recommend this for a holiday away from hustle and bustle in pleasant surroundings. Andre (owner) collected us from the local train station, kindly took us to larger supermarket in his vehicle to stock up on our first day, very helpful and hospitable. Will certainly return as good value property for price.

Liked best: The secluded rooftop bathing areas and having the swimming pool to ourselves.
Liked least: Hilly surrounding and had we not been going away for pure relaxation not a lot going on nearby.
