About Neil Rudram

We live in Somerset right in the heart of Taunton but are really country bumpkins at heart. Our two children are both grown up having graduated from university and are now working away from home with only slight boomerang tendencies. Neil used to run a busy veterinary practice in Taunton, but now is taking life easier having sold the business and now working part time as a locum vet or doing voluntary work. Liz used to be the practice secretary and manger but now runs a bed and breakfast guest house from our home. We both enjoy leisurely walking and exploring new places. Liz sings in a local choir, enjoys cooking, sewing belonging to a sewing group. Neil likes to sea fish, has a small motor boat and motor cycles. He has being trying to get beyond "dos cerveza por favor" with his Spanish.

Neil Rudram purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Neil Rudram chose Mijas area

We liked the climate of the Costa Del Sol, required a base to explore the more rural areas of Spain yet be accessible to a large International Airport with regular budget flights from most of the regional airports in UK. With in a few minutes drive there are several attractive beaches which are relatively uncrowded, many eateries locally for all budgets, good public transport along the cost, with the choice of upmarket Marbella and lively Fuengirola as our local large towns. We like the White Pueblo of Mijas and enjoy drinking a coffee in the bars around the square and up on the terraces looking out to the coast. Further a field but an easy day trip away are the historic cities of Granada, Ronda, Seville and Cordoba.

This is our apartment and we only aim to let it enough to cover costs.

What makes this apartment unique

Our little apartment is our bolt hole away from day to day pressures of UK life. We love the climate especially from October to May when it can be so cold, damp and depressing in the UK. Our terrace is spacious with good sea views and a great place to relax whether it be eating a leisurely breakfast or having a beer (or cocktail) in the sun. We are just a few steps from the swimming pool and sauna and the whole set up is comfortable and easily managed. Rivierra centre offers all you need for shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment with out the razzmatazz of the bigger resorts along the Costa del Sol. For the Golfers in the family there is a huge choice of courses all close by. We like the gated security of the complex and the mature well kept communal planted areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our personal bolt hole, and we try to keep bookings to a modest level just to cover our expenses rather than make a profit. Consequently the apartment is only lightly used and in very good condition.

Comfortable and quiet with lovely views!

  • 5 of 5

This delightful apartment one-floor up has a spacious balcony which is just right for sitting out and looking out across the garden to admire the views of the mountains to one side and sea to the other. The complex is quiet and secure with an attractive swimming pool and well-kept grounds. The two bedrooms are a reasonable size and comfortable, one with en-suite. The kitchen is well-equipped and cooking meals is not a problem (Christmas dinner has been cooked here!) There is British TV available by WiFi if the Spanish version gets too much for you. We have stayed several times in different seasons and have always enjoyed ourselves - there is an effective heating and air-conditioning unit.The apartment is kept in good condition and is always clean and tidy, We like to visit Marbella for the old town and Malaga for the theatre, museums and Alcazaba. Day visits to Ronda, Granada and Cordoba are easy and there are lovely walks in the mountains above Marbella and in the Montes de Malaga. An excellent venue for a long weekend or a relaxing couple of weeks.

Amazing holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband, our best friend and I have spent a lovely week in this immaculate flat. The flat is in a quiet area, away from all the traffic noise, ideal for busy people like us who tried and even managed to relax on their holiday. We had arranged for an airport pick up , which helped us to get there quicker and even to find our a bit more about the area. As soon as we arrived at the flat, we left in love with the view and as the front door of the flat opened in front of us, we've smelt the fresh air coming from the washed linen. The place has everything a home should have: kitchen well organised, TV,washing machine, comfortable beds, books to read and a lovely balcony where one can enjoy the morning coffee or a well deserved glass of Sangria in the evening time. The owner, Neil , was kind enough to provide us important informations about what's going on in the area, including things we might want to see. He even went beyond that and he provided us with weather links ( prior to the holiday). Another important aspect I would like to point out is that inside the flat there are lots of maps and leaflets, we even used a couple of them to get to Gibraltar (1.5h away by car)!

As a conclusion : we loved the place, in fact, we have already booked it again for another week for my parents. We would definitely love coming back here, but, I will make sure of only one thing : stay longer than a week, at least two! xoxo

Owner's Response: Andrea thank you very much for your kind review We are always pleased to hear how people have enjoyed their holiday at our apartment and for our guests to think the apartment as one belonging to a friend rather than just a holiday let. We enjoy giving advice on where to go and what to see and want our guests to make the most of Andalucia during their stay. There is so much more to see and do from the Costa del Sol other than the package holiday stereotype. To sum up we like our guests to enjoy our apartment and make the most of the area as much as we do when staying at Paraiso. Neil and Liz.
