About Trish Jenkins

I am a British citizen, born in Weston Super Mare aged 60. I have been living on the Costa del Sol for 30 years now. I have one studio apartment for rent which I have owned for a few years. As I have been here for a long time I am well known in the Sol Timor Hotel and in the area. I live quite close to the Timor Sol hotel.

Why Trish Jenkins chose West Costa del Sol

I initially bought the first apartment for my Mum and Dad to stay in for their long holidays in the Winter. My parents used to love it here, sadly now my Mum is deceased.

I love the fact that you can wake up every day and think that is the Mediterranean sea, the sun is shining. But here I am and I am avoiding the grey skies and the rain. This area is Spanish with a few English qualities that we can all enjoy. Flights are daily and only take 3 hours so I can always get home quickly if needed. I have lots of multi national friends and enjoy eating and drinking in the sun. I also like the English TV.

What makes this apartment unique

When you stay at the Sol Timor hotel or apartments you can be sure of a first class quick and friendly check in. If you ever do have a problem the staff will help you out. Need a doctor, now worries you can use your E111 form or see a private doctor in a hospital close by. Everyone speaks English so you can always be understood whether you want to book a table in a restaurant or the hydro to Tangiers. Money Exchange is not a problem either in the hotel or the many money Exchange places.

Our accommodation may be small but it is perfectly comfortable for a short or long holiday. Don't want to miss your favourite soap? many bars show all the popular tv shows. Start recording all your favourite programmes to watch on our DVD player.

FABULOUS HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I (2 25-year-old women) stayed in Trish's apartment on the 3rd floor. From the moment we booked Trish was brill with communication, answered any questions we had and offered recommendations.

The apartment is a short 20 minute taxi ride (at most!!) from Malaga airport which cost us 23 euros. The location of the apartment was BRILLIANT for our holiday. We were able to walk from our room to a sunbed on the beach in under 5 minutes using the pool gate. Alongside the convenience of the beach, there were a few smaller shops outside the front door and Lidl was a 10-minute walk away. The walk to the beautiful restaurants along Benalmadena Marina took about 10 minutes and wasn't a struggle to get home after a few too many wines!

The apartment itself was clean, airy and perfect for two people. We found having the ceiling fan as well as the air conditioning useful for when we were using the hairdryer to keep the room cool. We only used a few of the kitchen appliances as we made good use of the lovely food on offer at the beach bars along the promenade, however, there was a fridge and freezer, 2 hobs, a toaster, a kettle and a microwave along side cutlery and utensils in the drawers and cupboards. We couldn't have asked for more! The only thing we missed was a few tea towels for when we washed up what ever glasses we had used.

The beds were comfortable with fluffy pillows and clean bedding. We hid our suitcases away under the beds after hanging our clothes in the full-length wardrobe and made use of the full-length mirror every day. The bathroom was large consisting of toilet, sink and a shower over the bath. Everything was grand for the pair of us.

There is a small balcony overlooking the pool and the beach - beautiful views for a morning coffee or evening G&T.

We preferred to use the beach (for 5 euro per sunbed) however if you want to spend your day by the pool - be sure to join the gaggle of loopy ladies putting towels on sunbeds at 7am (when the pool doors get unlocked by security). The first day we spent by the pool there was not one sunbed to be had and had to lie on the grass on our towels. On our second pool day, I set my alarm for 6.45 and joined the other sleepy guests and waited for the doors to be opened. After going back to bed it was much nicer lounging by the pool on the beds we had secured with our towels when we got up at 10am.

Fabulous apartment, fabulous host, fabulous location!!!!

Would recommend to anyone :)

Been using these apartments for around 15 years, both apartments are great, super clean, spacious and close to all local supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The owner is a beautiful kind woman who cannot do enough for you. I would highly recommend anyone to use these apartments for their holiday

Excellent location. Spotless apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was very clean and had everything you needed. UK TV, DVDs, Fridge and facilities to cook your own snacks and meals (although why would you with excellent choice of restaurants within walking distance). Walk out of hotel grounds onto prom and beach. Owner was very nice and was available to give plenty of advice about the area. Would highly receoomend this apartment.

Vacances à oublier

  • 1 of 5

Bonjour, nous sommes vraiment déçu de notre séjour qui a été catastrophique pour les raisons suivante : des services proposés dans l'annonce sont inexistants et non disponible : wifi, machine à laver, parking en plus des choses qui dérangent tels que la porte qui a sifflé durant toute la nuit du samedi et dimanche en raison du vent et du mauvais temps, la chasse d'eau qui fuite, impossible de dormir avec bruits énormes, pas de contact téléphone du propriétaire pour l'aviser d'intervenir, pas d'Internet pour le contacter sachant qu'au mois d'octobre nous avons séjourné et nous étions trés content puisque le propriétaire nous a rendu visite pour s'assurer que tout se passe bien, nous marquons nos mécontentements envers la propriétaire. J'espére avoir une réponse de votre part. Remerciements

Owner's Response: As an owner of this apartment for more than 30 years, I am disputing this review. This is a Hotel complex with over 2000 guests. Wifi is available through Reception 24hours a day. There is a car park for 80 cars outside the hotel, see photographs.Washing machine is advertised as being in only one apartment and we also confirm this via email. Full contact details are available in the information folder supplied In the apartment with other touristic information. there is also a telephone in the apartment. Reception staff have my telephone numbers which they use if they need to speak to me. Having checked both mobile and landlines we did NOT receive a call from you. I wish I could control the rain, wind and sun, but I can not. The wind was particularly high coming from the sea, but yet again, I can't control it. as his is the only complaint I have ever received I feel it is totally unjustified.
