Just back from a wonderful relaxing holiday.Went to sleep and woke up listening to the sea.The beach was used mainly by locals and was extremely quiet (no row after row of sunbeds or fighting for an inch of sand to lay your towel !!! ) The beach bar next door was an added bonus and we were never disturbed by any noise even though it stayed open into the early hours. There were a number of bars/restaurants nearby but we didnt use these as we ate in the apartment most evenings sat looking out to sea. ( three supermarkets nearby ) The bus stops directly outside and at 1.50 Euros into benalmadema there was no problems getting around. The marina was beautiful and has a really good choice of places to eat.
The apartment itself was far larger than the photos suggest, it has everything you could need. We were worried about the lack of air conditioning but the ceiling fans were more than adequate.The view was just breath -taking, Ann said we wouldnt be dissappointed by the apartment and that was an understatement....we loved it and really didnt want to leave.
We decided to get the train from the airport ( as we travelled with only hand luggage) and that was so easy... train station was opposite airport and cost 1.70 euros , it took under 30 mins and train station at Torremuelle about 10 mins walk from the apartment (route map supplied by Ann ).Ann met us with the keys and showed us around. She had supplied us with tea bags, sugar,milk water and a bottle of wine which was greatly appreciated. We were able to stay in the apartment untill we had to leave for the airport.
I would really recommend this apartment ( and Ann& Nigel ...Benalrentals. )
Definately will be returning , for us it was a perfect mix of peaceful with the opportunity to pop into the hussle and bussle of the nearby town.

“amazing rental and vacation”

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary there, We loved the property, the location is incredible, if you love the beach you cant do better, you literally step out of your porch into the beach, the area is not very rocky which is nice as well but if you are sensitive i would recommend water shoes. also the bus is outside the building so no car is needed and you can take it pretty much anywhere, there is also a grocery store walking distant from the property. it is an apartment building but you are on the first floor, there is mixture of locals and tourists, the beach during the week is pretty empty. you have pretty much all you need in the condo, the only thing that wasn't so great was the bed, it's extremely short (5'7) and uncomfortable, we did however let the owners know and they might change it... please note that there is wifi but it's not consistent (i understood its like this in many areas of Spain) it was enough for me - checking emails once a day... we also took the options of paying them for transfers from the airport, it was definitely worth it (and I'm usually a bus person). we arrived late at night and the flight came in late, Nigel still waited and picked us up, it was nice cause he also got to show us the area on the way there. we got to meet the property managers (Nigel and Ann) and the owners and they are all very nice people, we will definitely come back :) it was a very memorable vacation.

Just arrived home after spending a fabulous week at the Malibu beach, the apartment was very spacious and is much bigger than it looks on the website. The location and the view from the apartment was amazing, five steps to the beach. Everything you could possibly need was in the apartment even a trolley for the supermarket which came in very handy. Can't thank Anne and Nigel enough, they provided a first class service. See you next year!

Just arrived home after a week's holiday in this apartment. Place was spotless with everything you could wish for to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The English TV channels were a bonus as weather . Wakening up to that view in the morning WOW !!! and the sound of the waves so relaxing. We were picked up at Airport by Neil and returned to airport by Nigel hassle free. So many thanks boys. Anne you do a great job we will definitely be back and recommend Malibu to others.Thank you for making our holiday one to remember .
