Guest comments: 'I wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in La Herradura. The apt. was perfect; quite comfortable for us and so conveniently located. I loved the beautiful wood and the marble floors. We were very fortunate to have experienced the Patron Saint (San Jose?) festival during the time we were there. The townspeople and crowds were delightful. Food was cheap and so delicious. I love the town and our trip could not have been better.' Ann H, Vernon Hills, Illinois, USA.

'Your slice of heaven! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful apartment with us, it was everything I expected and so much more. It was spotlessly clean and beautifully equipped with everything anybody could reasonably expect.' Steve & Trish, Sussex, UK.

'We are delighted with the apartment and would like to say that you have a beautiful home here with a very welcoming atmosphere. It is so well furnished and has everything one could wish for. We are looking forward to exploring the region of the Costa Tropical.' Richard & Sue on arrival from Cours de Monsegur, France.

'We thought we had died & gone to Heaven!' La Herradura is a friendly Spanish village named for its horseshoe-shaped bay & mile long crescent beach. By land, it is surrounded by green & verdant hills with the high Sierra mountains beyond. Originally a fishing village, it remains unspoilt by high-rise building. The apartment is central with the beach across the road, shops & supermarket within 2 minutes walk & the daily market, square & charming church less than 5 minutes away. The wide variety of restaurants & bars include several 'chiringuitos' actually on the beach & 'tapas' are still served free with each round of drinks! By car, Almunecar (5 mins) has 'big town' shopping, Nerja (15 mins) is a popular resort & skiing in the Sierra Nevada (90 mins) runs from December to April. Stunning scenery, traditional villages & fascinating history are all within 1 hour, as are Malaga & Granada airports with budget flights from many parts of UK & Europe & good, low-cost car hire.

Other Activities: 3 golf courses within 30 mins drive.

Very nice and spacious directly to the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at John and Dorothy’s nice apartment for the 3rd time. The apartment is in the heart of La Herradura - near beach, shopping and restaurants. The apartment had a great size for us. We also loved using our time at the balcony all day long. Furthermore was the rooftop very spacious and sunny with a fantastic view to the entire bay. The apartment was well equipped. The communication with the hosts was excellent.

Beautifully furnished large apartment with side sea views, centrally situated.

  • 5 of 5

We were over the moon with this apartment which is the best furnished and equipped we have stayed in over many years of holidaying abroad. Around 25 yds from the beach it is in a secure, mainly residential, block with a lift.

We went as a couple, stayed for a month and could happily have stayed longer. It is a real home from home. There was no problem in having family over to stay for a few days.

The apartment is very spacious and the layout is good with 2 bath/ shower rooms, a separate kitchen, and the bedrooms on their own arm of the corridor away from the lounge. It has side sea views from the spacious balcony which opens off the living room.There is also a large roof terrace.

Furnishings are in Spanish style and are good quality. There is everything you could wish for in terms of kitchen equipment including kettle, toaster, coffee maker and a washing machine in a separate laundry area. There is ample cutlery and crockery. The living room has books, DVD's, CD's, games, magazines, English TV, and helpful information on the area left by the owners. Hairdryer and non slip bath mats in the bath/ shower rooms and bed linen, towels and tea towels are provided and changed weekly.

La Herradura is a lovely laid back village/ town in a horseshoe shaped bay. If you are wanting a nice family resort this may well be the place for you.There are bars, restaurants, shops and supermarkets nearby and the main square is just around the corner. The taxi rank is at the bottom of the street. Along the seafront there is a large childrens playground and a daily fresh food market. There are also outdoor gyms on the beach. In addition there is a dive centre and windsurfing but these were closed when we were there in February.

The bus network is reliable and cheap. Getting around from here is easy, even without a car, although obviously a car would enable you to do more. Having said that we went to Malaga and Granada on the bus as well as places in between. e.g. Nerja 15 mins, Almunecar 10 mins, Salobrena 25 mins.

Booking this apartment was easy and John and Dorothy were really helpful. There is a local agent who speaks fluent English just 100yds from the apartment who was also very helpful. She even came and changed a failed light bulb herself within 2 hrs of us reporting it.

Usually we don't go to the same place more than once but we would happily return here, and probably will. Overall a great holiday in a super apartment.
