About the Owner

A 40ish single professional lady I bought the apartment in 2001 as somewhere to spend my precious holiday time and eventually as a retirement pad. Until then I'd like others to discover as I did the benefits of this beautiful area and chill out.

A Gem of an apartment in Belanmadena

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is spacious and great value for money. I have stayed at the apartment before and had a lovely holiday with my family. This time round the apartment was exactly how I remembered it-it is in a fantastic location-the amenities are to hand-and for a self catering stay it is a diamond in the right region . Would highly recommend.

Home from home

My 2nd visit to this apartment. we find it home from home and relaxing. it's spacious and always very clean on arrival. It was nice to see the handyman again who showed us around on arrival. it is comfortable and has everything you need. we loved the fully fitted kitchen. The living room is comfortable with a new flat screen T.V and two big sofas. The swimming pool is spotless and gardens is well kept with beautiful flowers. The apartment is in an ideal location being convenient and need the shops. bars and beach but the apartment is surprisingly peaceful. Good value for money and we would recommend it to all age groups . The apartment is very secure with a grill on the veranda that can be open or closed and locked. The owner has always been helpful and friendly with us and we will return again next year gods willingt

From the Owner

I'd spent many happy holidays in the area prior to purchasing the apartment. It's easy to get to from Malaga airport which has flights to all parts of the UK and it's in easy reach of the major facilities of the Costa del Sol and south eastern Spain. And the weather is always warm and sunny - so different from south western UK.

Activity and Interests


Benalmadena beach and Marina is 5 minutes walk from the apartment.


Malaga, the nearest airport is 20 minutes by taxi.

The area is well served by a regular bus & train service so a car is not necessary. However should you require it Car Hire is available at the airport & Los Porches benefits from a secure covered parking area. We can arrange airport transfers if needed.


Malaga town is 30 minutes by train. Puerta Marina. a beautiful marina and beach complex with its abundance of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants is 5 minutes walk. Boat trips and Dolphin safaris start from here.

Tivoli Amusement Park is a short bus or car drive.

Fuengirola which has a weekly market and Sunday flea market is 20 minutes by bus.

Torremolinos is a 30 minute stroll along the front.

Further Details:

Benalmadena is on of the most important resorts on the western Costa del Sol offering a variety of options: firstly the village itself, located in the upper part of the municipality features traditional architecture reflecting its origins, and beautiful panoramic vies; Arroyo de la Miel, where most of the population lives has a wealth of tourist facilities including Paloma Park, home to a diversity of birds & animals, is 10 minutes from the apartment; & Benalmadena Costa where most of the facilities for sun & sand tourism are concentrated - hotels, a casino, golf courses & a beautiful marina complex.

The Coast of Sun has approximately 300 days of sunshine per year. July & August are the hottest months.

The area abounds with markets which normally run from 10a.m. til 3 p.m. although they may start to pack up earlier in the winter. On Wednesdays there is a car boot market at Paloma Park. Flea markets are held on Saturdays at Fuengirola & on Sundays at both Fuengirola & Torremolinos.

For the more energetic as well as golf there are many tennis courts & green bowls lawns. Water sports & horse riding are readily available.
