About The Owner

Hi, I have lived on the Costa del for 18 years and so know the area really well. I'm always on hand as I live only 2 mins from the apartment.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

Why The Owner chose West Costa del Sol

I actually brought the property for myself. I choose the location as it is quiet yet a short walk to the beach, Marina, bars and restaurants. The front is a bit more lively.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. If asked I always try to point out it's a 10 min walk to the marina and beach. The benefit is you get somewhere quieter to stay and there are supermarkets and restaurants within 1 min of the apartment. It was great to chat. Thanks again! Rob

Great Apartment

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I have stayed in the apartment in 2011 and 2013 for 4 weeks each time and we will stay there again in September-October 2014 for 4 weeks again. We love the location of the apartment near supermarkets, near the train station, Pinillo, near the church and near some marvellous restaurants. The apartment gets the sun on the large balcony in the morning and through until the late afternoon in the Autumn. The apartment has a large kitchen with all the amenities, washing machine, 4 hob ceramic cooker and oven, electric kettle and toaster as well as a large fridge freezer with a full complement of utensils.If you have a car there is safe parking in the underground garage.

A great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a quiet residential area of benelmadena. It has a lovely pool and gardens. It's a big 2 bed apt with all facilities that you could need and a good size balcony which you can access via the lounge and master bedroom. Our 17month old boy spend hours running round the apt which was great for him. There was also a travel cot and high chair provided at no extra cost (just need to bring bedding for the cot).

We found the apt to be very clean.

Rob was a good host and met us on arrival to show us around. He was contactable at all times as he lives close by, but we had no need to disturb him. There was 1 big supermarket just 5minutes walk and a Lidl about 10mins walk.

Benelmadena marina was around a 10 min walk and the same for the beach and sea front. It was about a 20min walk to paloma park.

We also took the teleferico (cable car ride) and had a great time at the top watching the falconry. The crocodile park in torremolinos is well worth a visit. If you get a bad weather day then the sea life centre is ok but a bit expensive for what it is.

We ate out on the marina most nights but there are hundreds of bars restaurants to choose from across the resort. Not far from the teleferico is a more local area which is typically Spanish. There's also a British area around bonanza square.

The taxi from the airport was 23euros.

We had a great week and would definitely recommend this apartment and would stay there again.
