About the property

Apartment just off Calle Carabeo, Nerja, Costa del Sol, Spain - Located In The Prestigious Carabeo Area, 150m From Sea, 5 Min Walk To Balcon. Pool being upgraded

This lovely apartment for the discerning client, with stylish new furniture, flat screen TVs with UK satellite TV box, free wifi, newly installed bathroom and climate control is situated in the most beautiful part of Nerja old town.

The small modern apartment block is set back from the main road but centrally located in the beautiful and sought after Carabeo area of Nerja, with picturesque winding cobbled streets, whitewash houses and blooming flowers. The apartment is quiet but has easy access to bars, shops and restaurants. The famous Balcon de Europe is only 5 mins stroll from the apartment with no hills to negotiate, therefore suitable for all ages.

This 1 bedroom property sleeps 4 as the spacious lounge, with sun terrace for alfresco dining, is separate from the kitchen and would also suit a family or 2 couples if required. Parking is available immediately next to the apartment in the main Carabeo carpark, and free parking is available on the streets around the apartment. If you have a car, it is very easy to explore the surrounding area of Nerja and the pretty villages of Frigliana and Maro with its stunning caves. Nerja is also perfectly located for exploring the historic cities of Granada, Seville and Malaga and only 2.5 hours from Madrid by high speed train. Nerja has justifiably won several awards for being the prettiest town in the Costa del Sol. With its year round sunshine and beautiful beaches it is a perfect place to visit at any time of the year for all ages.

NB: IMPORTANT To comply with new Spanish Laws, the roof terrace pool must be upgraded for wheelchair access and is therefore likely to be closed for summer 2016 (June to September). All clients will be updated with any further news on works required.

About Katherine Howell

About the owner

I live in Dublin and work as a lecturer in University College Dublin teaching Medicine. I would love to say that I get very long holidays the same as the students but unfortunately that is not true!

I'm originally a Lancashire Lass but moved over to Ireland in 1996. I visit home often to see my lovely family and my beloved Burnley FC.

Katherine Howell purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Katherine Howell chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

I was never really a fan of the Costa Del Sol until I came to Nerja. Close enough to Malaga for great transport links, yet far enough away for the fabulous mountains and scenery. There really is a lovely Spanish feel to the place. The old town is pretty, the views stunning and it hasnt been spoilt by high rise buildings.

In Nerja I wanted to be in the old town and close to the lovely bars and restaurants, and as close to the sea as possible. Nerja is quite hilly and so I wanted to stay in the old town so there are no steep hills to tackle and easy access to everywhere.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is just 125m from the beach, in a quiet location in the beautiful old town. The small apartment block has a lovely courtyard and fantastic communal roof terrace with pool and amazing 360 views of the sea, mountains and town. Perfect to chill out after long day on the beach. It has a small sunny terrace overlooking a pool and partial seaviews.

The apartment is very spacious and modern and decorated to a much higher standard than most holiday lets. I use the apartment a lot myself and wanted somewhere I could call home. There is English TV and wifi (payable online) and the lounge can be used as a separate bedroom.

The location is second to none. Quiet, yet only a couple of minutes walk to the sea and surrounding restaurants.

I hope you love our apartment as much as I

The apartment was exactly as described by Katherine and reviews from previous occupiers.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well situated for restaurants, shops, transport and the centre of Nerja. From the car park near the apartment there are lots short cuts to different parts of the centre .

The bed was lovely and comfortable and the apartment was well equipped .

As we were in Nerja for a month we mainly ate in. However for those who enjoy a curry that is full of flavour from the spices without being too hot we would highly recommend Jaipur which is situated near the apartment. We did try the Taste of India which had excellent ratings but was very disappointed as it was very bland.

There is a good bus service that visits surrounding villages and resorts if you don't have a car. Fragalina and Malaga are well worth a visit.

We had a wonderful time at Katherine's apartment it would definitely be our first choice if we visit Nerja again. We would highly recommended this apartment to others as we are sure that they wouldn't be disappointed.

Thank you Katherine for making our stay a very positive experience .

Great location for beach and Balcon. Plenty of bars/resturants and shops within a few minutes walk. Apartment very well equipped. Very clean. Clear communication from owner. Free parking problematic (as is the whole of Nerja in the busy summer season). Large public carpark nearby.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Katherine the owner is very friendly and helpful responded to all my emailed questions quickly the location of the apartment is fabulous a 5 minute walk from everything but set back slightly so you don't get any noise from the town the apartment is brilliant you need a key to the gate to get into the block so felt very secure with the added bonus of a safe in the bedroom the apartment is spotless and very thoughtfully stocked with everything you could possibly need bedroom has plenty of storage and a huge comfy bed the wifi connection was great and the tv in particular was a big hit with my husband if we ever go back to nerja Katherine will the first person I contact I would recommend this apartment to everyone a big thankyou to Anne the cleaner for waiting for us to arrive to let us in Ann & Steve Murphy Lancashire UK

Fabulous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to an immaculate apartment that felt very welcoming from the moment we stepped through the door. As others have said, Katherine has thought of everything that you need to have a comfortable, enjoyable stay. Prior to arrival full information was provided about the safe, wi-fi (which worked perfectly) and other useful bits and pieces. Katherine was a pleasure to communicate with. She genuinely wants her visitors to have a happy holiday!

The bed was very comfortable with lovely bed linen. The living room was well furnished and the kitchen fully equipped.

We know Nerja well and found the apartment very easily but I am sure that the very clear directions would enable a first time visitor to find it as easily!

The views from the roof terrace are wonderful.

We will be repeat visitors and would very happily recommend to friends and family.
