Overview

About the property

Family House 5 Min Walk To Playa Bil Bil & Next To Parque Paloma In Benalmadena

Welcome to my 2-storey 100m2 house with a south west facing 35m2 private patio and a roof terrace (almost 50 m2) with views over the sea and the mountains. The swimming pool is only meters away and the nearest beach, Playa de Bil Bil, 300 meters away.

The house is located on a secure, gated complex, far from the main roads and noise. There is a parking space in the underground garage but due to the fantastic location, a car is not necessary (a taxi to/from the Malaga airport should cost about EUR20).

The nearest bar/ restaurant is located in the famous Parque de la Paloma, only a couple of minutes walk away. There are also lots bars/ restaurants by the sea. If you enjoy cooking, will find a fully equipped kitchen and even a 1001 recipe book in the house. There are 2 well-stocked supermarkets within 10 minutes walk from the house, and a small supermarket a couple of minutes walk from the house where you can get all your essentials.

Selwo Delfinarium is the nearest attraction for the family and is located right next to the complex so you can swim with dolphins and sea lions at your convenience. The tree-lined space between Selwo and Parque de la Paloma (approximately 200 meters away from the house) is used for local festivals and fun fairs so you are likely to experience some Andalusian event there during your stay. If you are into culture and architecture, castillo Bil Bil (right next to the beach 300 meters away from the house) is the place to visit and marvel at. In the summer there is free open-air cinema on the beach next to Castillo Bil Bil.

I hope you will enjoy your Spanish holidays in my house and please remember that I offer a 10% discount off the standard price for returning guests.

Please contact me for more information - hasta la vista! Joanna

About Joanna

I am Polish and British. I love Spanish culture, food, architecture, landscape and the sun but while I am busy with my day job, I let other holidaymakers to enjoy my little piece of Spain.

Joanna purchased this house in 2015

Why Joanna chose Benalmádena

This spacious property is in a quiet community and allows to relax on large terraces, indoors or by the pool, and at the same time it offers a convenient base for exploring Benalmadena beaches and other attractions. The sea is only 5 minutes walk away and the beautiful public park Paloma is even closer, with cafes, animals, various plants and water features guarantees a peaceful time for the whole family!

What makes this house unique

Benalmadena offers a multitude of attractions:

- a miles long promenade along the beach where in low season you can enjoy cycling or skating, otherwise this is the best place to eat out and shop

- the famous Benalmadena marina where you can take a boat to other places, or hire water equipment such as windsurfing, otherwise this is also one of the best places to eat out and chill out

- gyms and green areas on the beach free for the public

- beach volleyball fields

- free open air cinema on the beach on summer weekends

- Selwo delfinarium where you can swim with dolphins and sea lions (next to Parque de la Paloma)

- The Sea World with sharks and other sea animals

- an ice rink (yes, that's right!)

- tennis courts (on Avenida de la Palmeras)

- skateboaring ramps (near Parque de la Paloma)

- Tivoli amusement park (next to the train station Benalmadena/Arroyo de la Miel - 15 min walk from the house)

- a cable car going to the top of Caramorro (next to the train station Benalmadena/Arroyo de la Miel - 15 min walk from the house)

- birds of pray and horse shows on top of Caramorro

- golf courses, the nearest big one in Torrequebrada only minutes away from the house by car

- an Aquapark in neighbouring Torremolinos

- Fuengirola zoo (15 mins by train from the Benalmadena/Arroyo de la Miel station)

- guaranteed sun and cheap food and drink!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed for a week in March, 4 adults ,13yr old and 2yr old. Very spacious and clean property with everything we needed. Huge patio with the sun shining on it from breakfast time all day.Just a few minutes walk from the promenade and a good 25 mins stroll to the port area ,which is not a problem as there is more to Benalmadena than the port. There are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby and directly behind the property is a wonderful park with rabbits and chickens running around which was a huge hit with the children. We were met at the property by Jose who was very friendly and helpful ensuring the t.v was programmed to english channels which was a bonus. The owner ,Joanna, responded quickly to emails and was also very helpful. Thank you

Beautiful, clean and in lovely quiet area. Everything you could wish for. f

  • 5 of 5

The home is like a semi detached villa. The area is absolutely spot on. Joanna has been so helpful right from me booking and nothing was too much trouble for her. There were 6 adults in our party and plenty of room for us all. The two sun terraces and pool area were brilliant and we spent many hours around there. The beach is about 5-6 minutes walk and also walkable are the marina, Tivoli World, Selwo Dolphinarium and Paloma Park. The park is just magic and no matter what time of day you go, you are greeted by a host of cockerels and their chicks. There are also turtles, swans, rabbits, ducks and even green parakeets flying around. The marina with its Moorish designed apartments is perfect for.sitting at the waterside feeding the fish (1 euro for a large bag of bread) , having a nice cool drink and watching the world go by. All in all we had a fabulous time at Casa Juana and definitely hope to return soon.

Amazing holiday in Casa Juana for family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and spent 2 absolutely amazing weeks at Casa Juana. Kids (3 girls 8 months, 4yo and 6yo) loved park which is less than 5 mins from casa and where you can find rabbits, chicken, donkey, goats and excellent playgrounds – they have even clowns during weekends. There is Delfinarium opposite the park where you can see a lot of animals apart from dolphins. Worth going there.

Sea is only 5 minutes walk away.

There are many other attractions nearby (maximum 20 mins away either by foot or taxi) – aquarium, butterflies, crocodiles, Hindu temple, theme/amusement park (Tivoli World), beautiful gardens, marina. To be frank, we did not see all of these places as kids simply loved playing in the house, on the patio and sharing time mainly between seaside and the park.

There are plenty lovely restaurants on the seaside – which I wanted to go to. However, our kids did not fancy the restaurants and we had to cook. We are gluten and diary intolerant and it was very easy to find right food for us in well stuffed supermarkets which are 5-10 mins away. The kitchen at Casa Juana is well equipped and it was painless to cook there. You’ve got there everything you need to cook proper meals for a big group of people.

As my kids were ill, I had to make 2 trips to the private hospital Xanit which is 20 mins away by taxi from Casa Juana. Xanit is pricy (c200Euro per visit) but if you are covered with insurance, the expense should be refunded. The treatment we received was perfect- the doctors spoke English, the hospital is very modern and we did not have to wait long.

It was a first time for us to spend summer holidays in a rented house. Casa Juana is such a nice place that we are planning to repeat it. The house is clean, well equipped – the owner has thought even about things such as a baby chair or non slip mats for bath. The house is spacious and so it was lovey to put kids to bed upstairs and have some free time in the evening in the living room on the ground floor.

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

Joanna was very efficient in replying to our queries.The photographs are true to real life .The house offered enough space for four adults.Jose met us on time but we were totally unprepared for the 28 stone steps leading to the house .This causes a problem when you have heavy cases .It would have been better to come in the back door.The air con was brilliant as it was unseasonably hot.Two things I would change is the old tv ,it powers down after an hour, and the two satellite receivers clash with each other.Also the pillows are the size of a cushion ,I would supply full size ones .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your valuable feedback. I have passed your comments to my local manager as there are actually 2 non-step ways to the house (1 from the agreed meeting point) and I agree that these should work better when guests arrive with suitcases. The issue with pillows could have been easily resolved if we knew about it as there are a number of long pillows in the house and if they are not on the beds then they should be found in the cupboard marked "duvets/pillows". Guests are free to help themselves to extra pillows (there are different sizes for different needs) and Jose is always on call to provide local assistance. However, I passed the comment for the cleaning team so that they consider when making the beds. Lastly, a brand new TV will be coming very soon. I hope that you will consider visiting Casa Juana again to see the improvements. Best regards, Joanna

Very spacious family apt in great location

  • 5 of 5

Having just stayed at this accommodation we was very impressed by the size of the apartment! Very spacious with a massive roof terrace. The bedrooms were really big and the air conditioning was a god send (especially in the 40• temperature). The pool was lovely and quiet and the supermarket only 5 min walk. The only thing we found was some of the furniture was becoming tired, but that is just being picky and given the amount of people coming and going it will wear quite quick. All in all a very enjoyable holiday and have already been looking at next year.

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday at this property has been fantastic! Joanna provided us with lots of really useful information prior to our visit and our arrival meet was seamless, despite it being late at night. The property is absolutely stunning, spacious, clean and well equipped with lots of extra touches to make us feel at home quickly. It was very secure and located in a great place. The outside areas were lovely to sit in and had lots of shade or sun depending on what we wanted. The swimming pool was brilliant, a lovely shallow part for our kids to play in and a deeper part for swimming. The residents were also very friendly and welcoming when we met in the pool area. There are good local amenities a within a short distance and we were very close to both Paloma Park and Selwo Marina Delfinarium where the dolphin shows are. The beach and main areas were just a short downhill walk away. We would absolutely recommend a stay at this property and plan to come back ourselves in the future.

Great location, spacious accommodation

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property couldn't be better - just a few minutes walk from the beach and close to shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Ideal for families, with one double room and 2 twin rooms. It was clean but could do with a bit of updating and some of the outdoor furniture was in need of replacing. We felt it was rather sparsely equipped, and had we been planning to do a lot of cooking we might have struggled. Some spare towels would have been useful, there weren't enough provided to put one in the downstairs toilet. The swimming pool was very close to the property and with a grassy area next to it was a lovely place to relax and sunbathe. The owner was extremely helpful and communicative, and we had no problems with key collection etc. Overall the properly suited us well for what we needed and we would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments. I am glad that overall you had a great time and would consider returning. It is important for me to review all the points made as I would like you and my other future guest to feel that they are getting a 5 star service. Regarding furniture, I keep improving/replacing older furniture so it is an ongoing project. Generally, outdoor furniture gets the highest wear and tear and each year I make investments in this area. I would like to add some kitchen equipment and your guidance as to what you felt was missing (apart from a dishwasher due to lack of space) will be appreciated. For big eating, there are a couple of dish sets for 6 and also a few plastic dish sets for kids, but I appreciate that in terms of cooking maybe larger pots would be helpful. My apologies if there was an oversight on the towel's front and next time please feel free to speak to Jose during your stay. The standard at Casa Juana is that 2 towels are provided per person - a bath towel and a hand towel (up to 8 guests so 16 towels) and on top of it there should be a hand towel in the downstairs loo.
