Great property for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

I have no hesitation in recommending this property.

The property is as described and certainly lived up to our expectations

Jim and Joy are very welcoming hosts , Jim met us upon arrival and walked us through all the necessary bits and pieces re tv , electrics etc

The property was spotless and well maintained and although we didn't use the pool I'm sure it would be a great way to keep cool during the hot summer days The property is well placed for local amenities and I would be happy to return again

Spacious comfortable townhouse in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse on two levels has the added advantage of two stunning south west facing balconies - one on the first floor off the lounge and one on the second floor off the master bedroom - both with great views down to the coastline out over the shared residents pool. This is situated in a quiet residential street with no through traffic so was very peaceful the whole time we were there. Although we stayed in January it was pleasantly warm most days with sun and about 17 or 18 degrees; and hot and sheltered on the balconies. There is a lovely deli/shop and local cafe an easy 5 minute walk away, with a further 5 minutes flat walk into the lovely spanish town of Arroyo where there is a train station and trains every 20 minutes to Malaga, Torremolinos and Fuengirola. It is a pleasant 20 minute stroll downhill to the beach and seafront where tyou can also catch regular buses to Mijas, benalmadena Pueblo or Fuengirola/Torremolinos - all worth a visit. We did not bother with the car as public transport cheap and frequent. We did have a few taxis back up the hill from the seafront about 5-6E, but also walked when feeling fit. All the rooms are generous in size and there is everything you could possibly want in self catering supplied by the attentive owners Joy and Jim. All correspondence and booking smooth. Very competitively priced and useful free WiFi and English TV channels especially in winter. They even left us a lovely welcome pack including wine and beer. A lovely stay and I am sure we will return someday.

A great apartment with sun from morning til dawn.

  • 5 of 5

A month in Jim and Joys apartment were the best way to spend a holiday.

The apartment was very comfortable and situated in a calm area.

Everything was neat and clean. The service from Jim and Joy was fantastic. We were supportade with all we needed to eat for the fist day when we arrived and we got a perfect service during our vacation.

A true gem

  • 5 of 5

We were on a playa - tapas vacation.

The house is a spacious, well kept home with two fantastic terraces each with great views down to the sea and up to the mountains. It is well equipped with comfortable bedding and furniture and has everything you need to feel at home. Joy and Jim are marvellous and very congenial hosts and made us feel very welcome. They were very helpful, without being intrusive. There is a good bakery about a five minute walk up the hill with a nice Spanish café. The walk down to the beach takes 20 minutes at a leisurely pace. However we opted for a taxi to bring us back up (5 Euros). The beaches are clean, so is the sea. An umbrella and 2 loungers (with mattresses) cost 10E/day. We found a beach we enjoyed with a typical Andalusian chiringuita (snack/restaurant) serving local and international food at very reasonable prices. There is an excellent train service running from Fuengirola to Malaga that stops in Benalmedana. Train to the airport takes about 20 minutes. I have stayed in many rentals over the past years but I have never come across such wonderful hosts. Thank you Joy and Jim. I would definitely recommend a stay at Tanbello as it was perfect.

Just fab , more like a villa than an appartment.

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as stated only better, it's huge so much space with all you need for a fantastic holiday. Jim and joy are so helpful and can't do enough for you and are around 24/7 if needed , we stayed in no 8 and it was so clean and had all you could need , unlike most other rentals ( that get cleared of any food and necessities after each rental) jim and joy leave everything there for you to use should you need it so no need to rush to the shops and buy the usual stuff needed for cooking like salt , pepper ,olive oil tea ,coffee , etc etc I could go on and on the list is endless , and they really do provide a welcome pack as well , as previous reviews have stated . We will be so sorry to leave😩😩. But hope to return soon

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here 4 times now if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay that is spotlessly clean with two of the best owners you could wish for then this is the place to go.

Jim and Joy just can't do enough to make your stay the best it could be from the minute you step into the place they always have the essentials you need ie tea milk bread beer water you name it they probably got it for you and when I asked how much they would not take a penny. The appartment is huge but so wcomfortable if we didn't go out for dinner we would make something up and just sit on the huge balcony enjoying the sunshine The main bedroom is massive as well you just get up in the morning and go outside onto the bedroom balcony and enjoy the views which are stunning,It is only 5minute walk down to the beach or 5 minute walk the other way into town there is plenty to do and see there is the railway station just 5 minutes away as well if you fancy a trip to finguerola or Malaga it costs about 3euros a great service. Back to the appartment you have a beautiful pool which we used regularly and just had a peaceful few days relaxing doing nothing but enjoying the sun.will definetly return and would recommend this appt to anyone you will not be disappointed I can assure you

Just a 10 minute walk down to the beach, where you will find miles of sandy beach in both directions, with all the water sports i.e. paragliding, jetski, banana boat etc, shower & toilet facilities, cafe"s, beach bars.


We are 15 mins from Malaga airport by car, taxi will cost €25 - 30.00, alternately the train is very reliable, every 1/2 hour, & cheap approx €1.50 each way, then you will need a taxi from the train station, €5 - 7.00, pick up maybe arranged, please ask if required.


20/25 minute car ride will take you to the very tourist village of Mijas, nestled in the foot hills of the mountain, with donkeys a beautiful church & square & one of the oldest bull rings in Spain, again stunning views, a great spot to have lunch & a glass! cheers! If you are not drivers, or choose not to drive in Spain, we can arrange these trips & excursions for you, so please ask!

Further Details:

Arroyo de la miel (train station), is 1 mile inland, a 10 minute walk from the house, it is a modern spanish town, alive with shopping, tapas bars & alfresco dinning.

The beautiful award winning Puerto marina is 1/2 hour walk, on your way there you pass our wonderful paloma park, & windmill roundabout. You can walk through the marina and on into Torromolinos, via the main roads & never see a car. In the other direction by car, you have Fingerola 15mins away (also direct train from Arroyo) Marbello is 30 mins, Puerto Banus is 35mins and finally Gibralter is approximately 1hour 20 mins.

Supermarket, mercadona is 6/8mins down hill, at the beginning of palm tree avenue (very good value and traditional foods, suggest weekly shop here) opposite is what we call tesco"s where you will find all things british, great for the odd thing, but expensive. Back on the roundabout you will find a news agents, which sells English news papers.
