Important notes on accommodation
Wi fi now installed! Since early 2014 all English programmes ceased to be available on Freesat, so we had wifi installed. TV does not now have English programmes BUT if you bring an ipad or laptop with you it should be able to stream via the internet. I am no techi, but my renters have purchased a VPN for little cost per month, in order to make this painless. Cost of wifi is covered each month for your convenience. A note about the pool availability - this is available during peak season only!! I can only stress this to you since I do not wish to disappoint or mislead. - dates vary so do ask the vendor but as a rule the pool opens in July through to end of August only. Closes in September and during winter. Dates of opening vary, please ask me. The reasonable prices reflect this but you may be lucky !

Apartment in Almerimar, Andalucia, Spain
About the area
I have timed this walk myself at 6 minutes, beautiful unspoilt white sand beaches, with great facilities. Beach huts with running water and duck boards to the promenade, so you can clean off all that sand first! Umbrellas and sun loungers, reasonably priced at 4 Euros each when we were there last for a whole day! The sea is fantastic and a further walk along the prom to the local shops and restaurants, makes it all a grand day out.
3 golf courses of International standard are within easy reach of the apartment. 21, 18 and 9 hole options, having been recently revamped. There are golf hotels in the process of being built here in Almerimar. A beautiful oasis of trees, flowers and palms to make your golfing experience that bit more memorable.
Skiing is accessible in the Sierra Nevada mountains 90 minutes away, or for a day trip to have a complete contrast to the Almerimar beaches.
Special Interest Holidays
Birdwatchers very welcome. Aug/Sept 2012 39 different species were spotted, 75% of them from my balcony overlooking the Entinas Nature Reserve. Binoculars provided. Come out for spring 2013 for the migration period!
How to get there
The nearest airport is Almeria, which is around a 30 minute drive to Almerimar. I can arrange for a much reduced rate than local taxis, but if you hire your car it is a straight drive west to Almerimar on uncrowded motorway. You can get about easily if you don't hire a car, but with golf equipment etc it is much easier and there is an allotted underground parking slot for this apartment with lift access. Hire rates with Easyjet eg are around 18E/day for a small car at time of writing.
Please see our website for all local attractions, such as Troglodyte Village, kids days out etc.
Local supermarket is a 15 minute walk or a quick drive away. Mercadona is well equipped with everything you might need and they have not hiked up prices for the tourist market either. Good Spanish fare can be found in good deli counters and I found local wine at 55c per carton! You will however come out humming the Mercadona ad...
House swap very much considered!

"What a Gem"
What an absolute gem. Perfectly located, extremely large balcony overlooking a magnificent views of the sea and nature reserve. Apartment was kitted out with everything you could possibly need and was extremely large for a 1 bed. We loved the apartment, the views and the location. A short walk to a beautiful sandy beach, a large lovely marina with lots of small bars, restaurants and shops. Out of season (New Year) was quiet but places still open and lots of life about at the marina and restaurants. Great location, lots of lovely walks, sea air, loads of sunshine! ... definitely a place to return to. Can't wait!
Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, tourists without a car, sightseeing and romantic getaway

We had a lovely time, I have kept meaning to e-mail you to say how lovely the apartment was and a great location!
It was great being so close to the nature reserve with such a lovely view, saw a pair of Little Owls on our first night and after that loads of flamingoes, egrets, stilts, a Roller (quite unusual I think, you only get them in europe - its vivid turquoise underneath!)
Also loved the fantastic clean beach and just a short walk away. Even at weekends it was busy but never really packed, always a spot for us and our umberellas. Also had fun with the lilos, it was good not to have to buy these and hope our umbrellas will be useful for you in September.
The flat had everything we needed, kitchen was great
About the Owner
Hi I live with my two sons in Brighton, England. I work full time as a recruitment consultant within pharmaceuticals and clinical research. Having been a midwife my interests have always been in medicine and sciences. My partner is a fireman, and we love getting away to Spain when we can. Long term I would love to spend equal time in the UK and winter in Spain. I hate cold! In my spare time I sing in a duo, and you never know you might see me in the bars in Almerimar one of these days!
Year property purchased: 2010
Why this location?
I chose this apartment in Spain because it is not too far to go if you fancy a quick getaway! The area of Almerimar I love because it is stil fairly unspoiled. This apartment I fell in love with when I saw that the views are peaceful and overlook the Nature Reserve. Birds are one my my hobbies, and I have left some binoculars in the flat just because I think it is really interesting to watch them closely, nesting and flying etc. So far I have seen a family of owls, and a nesting pair of prey birds ( not sure which ones!). I want people to enjoy the flat, the area, the peace and the local people are so very friendly. Lots of English ex pats A good old english bar CK's if you fancy it, and lots of real spanish restaurants, where the Spanish love to eat, a good sign!
What are the unique benefits of the property?
This is a brilliant mixture of peace and beach holiday and or Golf if you love it, or perhaps your partner is a golf fanatic, while you and the kids skip off to the beach. 6 minutes and you are there. 1 minute and you are in the warm beautiful, safe pool with the guard there for your peace of mind. Lots of families enjoy this area. Everyone is friendly. The apartment itself is luxurious and fully equipped, I think we have thought of everything, even DVD's and CD's for the evenings, no laughing.... we want you to enjoy the flat, Almermar and the surounding areas, and want to hear what you think so that we can make it perfect for everyone. We hope you come back!
