About the property

Townhouse in Benalmadena, Costa del Sol - Easy Walking Distance To The Beach, Marina, Bars And Shops

Stunning family child friendly townhouse with 4 beds and 2½ baths. Ideally situated in Benalmadena, within walking distance of the beach and the vibrant cosmopolitan marina with numerous restaurants, bars and small shops, yet in a quiet residential area. There is lots for everyone to see and enjoy. You can go to 24 hour square, feed the fish at the marina, go the aquarium, visit Tivoli Amusement Park, take a ferry ride or a cable car ride, visit a water park or just lounge by the pool.

About Joanne


we are a family of 4 with 2 children (who were 1 and 2 when we go the house over 10 years ago). We live in Bucks in a little village where everyone seems to know everyone else (or at least know what they are up to!).

Now that the kids are at school we can only go to the house in school holidays, which is a real shame. My favourite time to go used to be May/June or September when it's warm enough for the kids to swim, but cooler at night - although the a/c sorts that out!

The extended family also go a lot too, from my in-laws (65) to my cousin and his young family.

Best Wishes Joanne and Stefan.

Joanne purchased this house in 2005

Why Joanne chose West Costa del Sol

We got this house because we wanted somewhere that was very child friendly, that was big enough to take friends to and that had all the amenities on the doorstep, but just a quick transfer from the airport. We hope you will agree that we got what we were looking for!

The kids love going to our home in Spain and we so do we. We also hoped that our parents would all enjoy going and they go every year, at least once, so the whole family is happy. From our experience the house and the surrounding area has something to offer everyone and the feedback we get from guests is very positive. We hope you get chance to enjoy it too.

What makes this house unique

Even though we have a shared pool, it is only shared by about 20 houses and as most people that live there are Spanish (who prefer the beach) you often get the pool to yourself, which means that you get a much larger pool than in a villa, but it's almost like a private pool.

The large gated courtyard at the back of the house is fantastic for kids. They often play out there in the evening when it's a little cooler and my kids get the Spanish kids calling for them to come and play.

Everything is so close to hand, from supermarkets to hundreds of restaurants, the marina (which I love), Tivoli (which the kids love).

You can catch a train from the airport to the house for just over 1 euro, so with hand luggage I can get to the house within an hour of landing!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Joanne, We all had a great holiday thank you. Your house is lovely & it really felt like home, (something i have not experienced in holiday accomodation before) and it really made the holiday for me. We enjoyed the cable car,Tivoli world, Paloma park, Aqualand in Torry, the beach, the pool and lovely meals at the Wok (all you can eat) a nice Mexican at the Marina,& some nice beach front restaurant's as well as some nice fry-ups at The 'Grand Final'. Thanks again, & we may well book again! Adios amigo, Kevin & Family

Notes on accommodation: The accommodation is very child friendly with man, toys, books, DVD's, stairgates, plastic plates etc, (high chair and cot available to hire). We did this because we have young kids and it's awful to have to take half your house on holiday! The house is no smoking, although you can smoke in the garden. Please note this is a family house, we will not accept young all male/female bookings. Outside: Outside enclosed, safe garden with separate covered seating area and BBQ. Outside the back garden is a very large gated area that is great for slightly older kids to play in, again very safe. The shared pool is again enclosed, with easy steps into the pool. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The house is cleaned at the end of each stay. Payable locally by the guest. Other: As well as the sunny garden area, we now have a lovely covered garden area which has sofas and great to keep out of the sun or the wind. Lovely for adults in the evening. Check out the photo.

Great property in good location-Pool summer only

  • 4 of 5

Property is excellent and exactly as portrayed in the pictures. Plenty of space and in a generally quiet location. Lots of hot water which is unusual for most rented accommodation we've visited so that too is an excellent point. Nice easy walk to all amenities and a €5 taxi ride if you've gone a wee bit further afield although the taxis for some reason couldn't understand the street name (probably Scottish to Spanish translation problems). Only disappointment we had was that the pool was closed. Joanne had pointed this out to us before we confirmed booking but we went ahead thinking we'd take our chances with the weather - we had 7 days of 25-30 degrees but this wasn't enough for the local management to open the pool (which looked stunning behind it's padlocked gate). Real shame so if you're visiting outwith the high season summer months, don't bank on it being open. Other than that, an excellent week was had by all.

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Just home from our trip to this lovely house. The house was clean and spacious. We had 4 adults and 4 children on our trip and there was plenty of room for all of us. It was like a home away from home, everything we needed was there and there was a welcome folder with all the information we needed to enjoy our stay. We were in walking distance from the shops and local bars even though it was a lovely quiet residential area. We were also in walking distance from the Benalmadena Marina and promenade which was just beautiful.

What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get and like in other reviews we had the pool to ourselves most days.

I would definitely recommend this location to my family and friends and hope to revisit again some day.

Comfortable and very well located

  • 4 of 5

The property is located centrally in Benalmadena so easy access to the beach, shops, restaurants and night life but in a quiet neighbourhood so not disturbed when at home. There is plenty of room in the property and well laid out with comfortable rooms and a nice patio area outside at the back. The communal pool is easily accessed out of the back gate and short walk and although shared with a number of other properties was very quiet when we stayed so it felt like a private pool. Good communication with the owner and no problems in admin. Many thanks!!

Fantastic house and holiday destination

  • 5 of 5

My second visit to this lovely house. First time with friends, this time with husband, children and grandparents. Again, found the house to be very clean and welcoming. Transfers from the airport arranged by the owner were great and very helpful and gave us a stress free start to the holiday. The area is great, there is so much to do we really needed two weeks! As my husband had fractured his back 2 weeks before the trip we were concerned he would cope with walking distances but the house is in an ideal location and we needn't have worried. The amazing Marina and lovely beaches are all within easy walking distances. There are plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from locally. We especially enjoyed the pool set within the lovely garden, and had this to ourselves most of the time. Air con in the house was certainly appreciated. Overall, we all had an excellent holiday and look forward to returning as it was an all round great holiday home for all of us, and the kids (age 4 & 6) didn't want to leave.

Ideal family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and spacious property with a home from home feel close to many bars and restaurants, but in a quiet residential area. Even though we went at the peak period we mostly had the pool to ourselves. Owners very helpful and gave great advice on things to do in the Benalmadena area. We would definitely return and recommend this property.
