Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely week in this apartment. It really is a home from home, has everything you need and the garden is great. We enjoyed having breakfast there in the peace and quiet , it is very private and a sun trap til mid afternoon. The only complaint we have is the double bed in the main bedroom is very small. The location was perfect for us, just a 5 minute walk up into Arroyo or 10 mins down to the beach. Overall I would highly recommend this property and hope to return in December to check out the winter weather.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alyson for such a lovely review. Sitting in our private garden in the sunshine is just perfect, especially when the weather isn't so great back home. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay and wish to return. I will email you with our rates. Best wishes Sheryl

Great holiday, excellent location!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from this apartment having had a great time. The location is very central compared to other properties we viewed, right next to Paloma park. It is a gated community so very safe and with added bonus of access to the pool. Once we had figured out the quirks of Spanish electrics, we had no problems, but Lynn was very helpful when we contacted her. This was the first time we had booked separate flights and accommodation and the process was very easy, including transfers ( we used shuttle direct who were also very efficient). The garden was a lovely place to chill out, a real bonus. This is not a 5 star hotel, it's obviously someone's home but there was plenty of room for us and our 2 gangly teenagers. Wifi was a godsend, with DVD player and plenty of English channels. All in all highly recommended and we would love to return!

Owner's Response: We're so please that you enjoyed your holiday at our apartment. Lynn always helps our guests as best she can and we're really pleased that she was there for you. Our Spanish home has been very popular over the years that we have been letting it out. Now that we have WiFi and can pick up all the English TV channels it really has been a great holiday option. Our own private garden is so lovely to sit in summer and winter. We look forward to welcoming you again. Regards Sheryl

Perfect position

  • 4 of 5

The description of the apartment was totally accurate. It was in an ideal position being close to both the beach and the village of Arroyo de Miel. It had all of the amenities required for a great family holiday. The apartment was clean but a little 'tired'. Sheets were clean but well worn and could do with being replaced. The shower in the bath was fine for us all to use but the shower enclosure was too small so we didn't use it at all. The TV and WiFi was a great asset, for my teenage son especially, and in our opinion the size of the tv was totally fine ( one reviewer had said it was too small).

Sheryl was very professional to deal with and answered any of my queries promptly. Lynn met us when we arrived and was a joy. She was so friendly and helpful and very welcoming. The garden was fantastic and it was well equipped with sun loungers. We enjoyed watering the plants when the sun went down and the grapes were even hanging off the vines. The table was well worn, probably due to being exposed to the elements but I covered it with a tablecloth when we were eating. The pool and communal garden is fabulous and not at all busy. We loved sitting in the shade and having a dip in the pool. It is very well maintained and has a person on patrol.

We were able to use the bus to go to Aqualand and the train to Torremolinos and Fuengueroila. The shopping centre, Miramar, was excellent in FuengueroilaFuengueroila. We got the train and walked to it. Playa Mayor is an excellent centre for bowling, eating and shopping and is a stop on the train line. The "last resort" was a favourite restaurant of ours and it is a lovely walk along the promenade to the Marina where you can take a boat trip. Tivoli World is a must for children of all ages and the do a special rate for families if you buy an all inclusive ticket.

I would, and have, recommended this apartment to family and friends. It is in an ideal location and has everything you need. Thank you for letting us stay in your home.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our holiday apartment. We do try very hard to give guests a lovely time. We have been very busy this year and had many of our guests returning from previous years. Items do get worn and we try to replace things regularly. Earlier this year we replaced the fridge/freezer and boiler as well as many of the furnishings and kitchen items. We are going to the apartment in October and will look at the items you mention that need replacing. We know that the English TV stations have been a great asset to our guests. We too have youngsters and being able to pick these up using our WiFi has really helped to make their holiday enjoyable. A lot of guests like our apartment so much because of the private garden, which really is a lovely little haven. We offer a discount for anyone returning or anyone who is introduced so please bear us in mind if you return to the area. We look forward to hearing from you in the future. Regards Sheryl

Stayed in Benalmadina many times before one of the best apartments and location wise you can't beat it. Whole process could not have been easier.

great place in the heart of benalmadena

  • 4 of 5

great property. Close to all amenities and only a short pleasant walk to the beach. Apartment was very clean and had everything we needed. Garden is an afternoon suntrap and a lovely place to sit in the evenings. Sheryl was extremely helpful during the booking process and Lynn was also so very helpful on arrival. Lovely people and lovely apartment. Will definitely be back again.
