About the property

2 bed villa with large balcony, lovely sea views and shared pool

This beautiful two bed south facing villa in the private urbanisation of San Juan de Capistrano benefits from fantastic sea views. Sleeps up to 4 people. Both bedrooms have sea views and open out onto a large terrace. The kitchen has recently been modernised and has a new washing machine, oven, hob and dishwasher. The terrace has a large comfortable seating area and a table for outdoor dining. There is also a small private garden. There is a shared pool, a short walk from the villa with two pool bars/restaurants and also a children's pool area. The town is within walking distance and there is also a regular local bus service and reliable taxis. Nerja has 5 beaches to choose from including the lovely Burriana beach which is the largest and has bars and restaurants along the front. The town has a lovely Spanish feel with a large pedestrian area by the famous Balcon de Europa which is host to many festivals and local entertainment.

Beautiful apartment in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time in Nerja. This apartment was equipped with everything we needed, and things we wouldn't have thought of but were great to have. Like a sun umbrella to take to the beach, and a cooler. This apartment was lovely and spacious, and we loved the outdoor space with a little yard and a large beautiful deck. Paul provided detailed instructions prior to our arrival and included everything we needed to know, and how to get there. These details were great to have. We loved this location so much, we started looking into properties in this area! Thanks for the lovely stay.

Lovely stay in San Juan in San Francisco villa

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely and comfortable villa to stay in and Paul the owner so helpful with forward planning my holiday. Made good use of icebox, parasols and beach mat on our sea jaunts. Thoroughly enjoy sitting out on terrace L-shaped Sofa in mornings and evenings looking out at sea view and lights of nerja. Villa very well kitted out too!! Thanks - we will be back for sure.

Great location. Great views. Very homely and spacious. Exactly like the photos on the website.

  • 4 of 5

Property clean and tidy on arrival. Modern furnishings balanced with traditional Spanish. Great outside space on the patio with plenty of space to dine and also relax. Lighting helped create a lovely night time cosiness. The small garden area great to Sun bathe if you don't fancy pool or beach. Nice touch to have use of parasol and cooler box for thet beach. Air con in all rooms so lovely to have option though the night. Plenty of work space in the kitchen with no shortage of pots and pans and coffee making kit. Our family consists of four - 2 adults and 2 kids aged 13 & 15. We usually book accommodation with 2 bathrooms and we were worried about coping but it was all fine. Powerful shower and spacious cubicle. Lovely to have some water in the fridge on arrival after lugging cases from car to accom. Clear instructions in the property. Not overdone with lots of dos and don'ts. Welcoming and easy to follow. No problems at all during stay. Another lovely touch was the provision of pool towels so we could use ours for the beach.

Bit of feedback about pillows in that we felt needed two as the ones we had were very flat. Bathroom roomy and all in working order. Showing its age a little but we appreciate costs involved in refurbishing.

Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend and use again.

We know the area and like the fact that in the hills so definitely need a car. Parking at the street nearby so easy for transferring shopping and cases. Five minutes walk from nearest bus stop. Five restaurants/ cafe bars within ten minutes walk if want to eat local.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time here, everything you need for a relaxing stay. Even had umbrellas for the beach, buckets and spades and cool box. Lovely little garden to catch the last of the days rays and a veranda to watch the evening sky. Pool close by and a bus into town round the corner for €1. Liked it so much probably going to book for next year too!

Excellent holiday in this great apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable and well equiped. The surrounding grounds, communial gardens and pool were well maintained and added to our enjoyment. However the star of the show was definitely the large balcony/terrace area with comfortable seating, shade and sun and a great view. What more could you ask for?

Nerja is a fantastic place with an enormous number of great bars and restaurants to choose from and has a great atmosphere. We particularly enjoyed Maria Bonito and La Fabrica. The caves are certainly worth a visit, particularly on a hot day and the tourist train deal to get there is a good option if you don't have a car.

The only down side to the apartment is the location of San Juan which is at the top of a long, steep hill. Walking down to the centre of town takes about 30mins, no problem and we did it on several occasions but the return journey did not appeal. The options are the local bus (only 1euro but only 1 an hour and last bus back 8pm) or a taxi (about 8 euros).

However this didn't spoil our enjoyment of a very pleasant stay.

For us 3 it was perfect, a home from home with a huge balcony and sea views. Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

For my wife and I the villa was perfect and in an idyllic location surrounded by beautiful flora. The local facilities were within a short walk especially the supermarket as it was always open! The villa was clean and very well presented.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the Villa to all our friends and family.
