Apartment in Benalmadena, Arroyo de la Miel, Costa del Sol, Spain - South Facing, Sun From Morning Till Evening

The apartment sleeps 4 people with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, lounge and well equipped with wifi and English Tv, modern kitchen. It is south facing towards the sea with sunshine from morning till evening and a generous balcony. The apartment is on the 8th floor in a 9 floor block with 2 lifts. There is NO pool with our apartment complex. Within 5 minutes walk is the Spanish town of Arroyo de la Miel which has an abundance of restaurants/bars, shops, and supermarkets. 10 minutes away are several lovely clean beaches, with a flat promenade that can take you all the way to Malaga if you feel that energetic. The airport is only 20 minutes away on a direct train line, there are also good bus services and car hire locally which can take you to Torromolinos, Migas and Fueringirola. Nearby are the attractions of Paloma Park, Tivoli world, the mountain cable car, Selwo, the Sealife centre and the award winning Marina, one of the best on the Costa del Sol.

About The Owner

I am 49 years old and married to Chris with 2 children, aged 17 and 14. We are both self employed and love the freedom this enables us to use our apartment as much as the school holidays allow.

Why The Owner chose West Costa del Sol

My wonderful parents-in-law have owned a property here since 1985 and we loved using their apartment for holidays, but with 2 children their 1 bedroom apartment was getting a little cosy. So, in 2003 we had a good look around and bought our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment. We always loved Arroyo and wanted to be near restaurants and transport links.

What makes this apartment unique

We were very selective when buying, as we knew we wanted south facing, so whenever we come out from cold, wet Lancashire, we could sit and enjoy sun and warmth at whatever time of the day and year. With the children at the age they are now, we use the train to get to our apartment, so as it is within walking distance, it is ideal.

Our holidays have evolved over the years, as the children have grown up, but they love planning what we are going to do. We very rarely hire a car, as there is no real need for one, as the public transport is cheap, clean and reliable, plus half the fun is relaxing into the Spanish lifestyle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely apartment in a great location, well maintained and equipped, we really enjoyed the sunny balcony and the views, would recommend to anyone. The Johnsons June 2010.

We find ourselves returning to this wonderfully located apartment year in, year out, everything is on the doorstep, a real home from home, with sun thrown in for good measure. Sue and Mike Warren - winter 2013
