About the property

Super Apartment - 400 metres Beach, Quiet Secure Complex, 350 metres Shopping Mall, Air-con all bedrooms+lounge, All UK TV, WiFi, Pool

This quiet complex, just 400 metres from Fuengirola's superb beach, is only 12 years old but, in December 2013, this apartment has been completely refurbished and Central Heating installed for winter stays plus air-conditioning in all of the bedrooms plus the lounge. The apartment boasts all the main UK TV channels (all BBC, all ITV, Channels 4 and 5, several children's and film channels via wifi. The apartment also has its own private WiFi signal. A rare feature too is the huge 40 m2 balcony terrace with superb views and overlooking the super gardens, pool and across the Mijas Valley. There is air-con unit in the lounge and all bedrooms but, in fact, the sun does not hit any bedroom windows which is ideal for summer avoiding any greenhouse effect. The whole apartment also boasts new furniture, equipment, linen etc throughout, own wifi signal, central heating and has a real touch of style. The huge private West-facing terrace of 40 m2 (about 430 ft square) provides room for all to sunbathe and dine whilst keeping an eye on the kids in the pool immediately below the terrace. The terrace faces across the Mijas Valley and the views are stunning. The terrace also has 2 fully retractable overhead sun blinds (one for each half) which one can open or close in seconds depending on whether you want sun or shade at any time. The Myramar Shopping mall with some 80 boutiques and the biggest supermarket in Fuengirola is just 350 metres away. The 3 bedrooms (2 doubles and one twin) are beautifully done and the two full bathrooms mean no queues or crowding. This property also boasts central heating throughout...ideal for that winter stay.

The apartment is ideally located for food and entertainment too. Within a short walking distance, there are dozens of bars, restaurants, cafes etc along the sea-front and also in other streets behind the sea-front.

The apartment has its own private parking space under the complex so, although everything you need is accessible on foot, you can park a hire car there too for those trips to visit a little further afield. The apartment is located on the ground floor of the complex so access to it from the street is completely wheelchair suitable. The main terrace, however, sits some 5 metres above the community gardens and pool so there is no security concern from the terrace.

This apartment is registered as a holiday rental property with the Junta de Andalucia under the registration number CTC-2016077002.

About David Greene

I am a British Chartered Accountant and I came to live and work in Spain in 1998 after a long-ish career in corporate finance. On arriving in Spain, as a complete change of lifestyle, I opened a very successful French restaurant which I later sold very well. I then owned and ran a small, successful real estate office but closed it when the property market went quiet here in 2007. I speak fluent French and an improving Spanish too. I have been advertising here since 2007 (ref s6575).

I am a friendly and approachable guy and I want to make sure that my guests are happy with everything and, thankfully, I seem to succeed in that. I expect high standards when I go on holiday and I always assume that my guests expect the same from me.

I live just a few minutes away in the centre of Fuengirola

David Greene purchased this apartment in 2013

Why David Greene chose West Costa del Sol

I bought this property in December 2013 because it is superbly located so close to the beach, shops, bars, restaurants etc and yet is within a quiet, secure complex with super community pool and gardens. The size of the terrace is exceptional and provides space for everyone to relax, dine, sunbathe whilst enjoying the ability to oversee the kids at the pool below and enjoy the stunning views over the gardens and pool to the Mijas Valley and the mountains. Although there is also private underground parking, no car is necessary because all of that which one needs is within easy walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

Tranquility, location, private space inside and outside, privacy, wheelchair access, no noise from passersby either on foot or by car both daytime and nighttime, all the main UK TV channels and more, own WiFi, private parking, are all attributes that make this an exceptional property. The size and layout of the apartment with two bathrooms, good-sized kitchen and huge terrace show that it was clearly designed for permanent family living rather than just as a bolt hole for holidays. There are certainly other properties that can boast some of these attributes but only a few that can boast all of them.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This review was posted on homeaway.co.uk (ref 1332009). We just spent a lovely week at this apartment and it was such a pleasant change from our previous experiences of renting on the Costa del Sol. David’s apartment is refurbished and beautifully furnished and has all the mod cons you need. Two things also stood out…the huge terrace which we spent most of our time on and the peace and quiet of the complex (and the great pool there) even though it was just a few minutes walk from the sea front. Such a pleasant change from trying to sleep with noisy drunks outside all night like last year when we stayed on the sea front.The shopping centre was only five minutes on foot away too so we had a great relaxing holiday and intend book at David’s apartment again.

Fantastic apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Fuengirola and it was mostly down to how brilliant we found the apartment. David was very accomodating on arrival giving us hints and tips on the area. The apartment itself was extremely well looked after and more than spacious enough for 6 adults. It was also very well equipped and we were found wanting for nothing. The terrace is a fantastic asset, very big area and we gladly made use of the bbq. The location is also very good, with only a 10 minute stroll to the beaches/bars and restaurants. It also is well located with only a 5 minute walk to the shopping centre, which has a huge Carrefour supermarket and many other shopping outlets. I would highly recommend this apartment and if I return to Fuengirola I would certainly stay here again.

Winter Sunshine

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is amazing, beautifully set out and extremely spacious. Clean and well presented, a real home from home. Ample space for the 6 of us, the photographs of the terrace don't do it justice, it was beautiful, the best way to watch the sun go down of an evening.

Spent most days at the beach which is a 10 minute walk away, were were extremely lucky with the weather too, peaked at 31 degrees on one afternoon! Very enjoyable, will definitely return if/when we visit Fuengirola again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to these guests (stayed for a week in late October 2016) for their review. I cannot take credit for the weather but my small team and I do our best to maintain the highest standards. The terrace is indeed exceptional, about 40m2 with stunning views, and the location of the apartment is ideal being away from the sea-front night-time noise but within a 5 minute walk (or 10 minutes it seems if you walk slowly hehe). To be exact, the beach is 400 metres away.

Super Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Very clean apartment with lovely communal pool. David met us on arrival (close to midnight on a Sunday!) and ensured that we were familiar with the apartment. The terrace was a joy.

Lovely, modern, spacious apartment..

  • 4 of 5

Had a great stay in this wonderful apartment. Once you get your bearings, its only a short walk to the supermarket (huge!) and about a 15 min stroll to the main Fuengirola area of restaurants/bars etc. English TV was a bonus and the pool is directly below the apartment. Thanks to David for his hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you to these guests for their review. A four star rating is good but it is the first that is not five stars so a tad disappointed. The reference to the 'main Fuengirola area' presumably means the Port area which is indeed 15 minutes on foot. In fact, the sea-front promenade and beach is just 400 metres away from the apartment (about 4 minutes walk) and this is where the closest concentration of bars, restaurants, cafes etc can be found. The sea-front promenade in Fuengirola is actually 7 kilometres long and there are bars, cafes, restaurants, shops, estate agents, etc all the way along it. The apartment's location so close to the sea-front, but not actually on it, is perfect because, although it is just 4 minutes walk away, there is no night time noise from traffic and revellers and one can actually sleep at night.

Excellent Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 7 brilliant days in this excellent apartment and I must state that this is the best apartment I have stayed in on my many visits to Spain. This is our second visit to this apartment and once again on arrival at the apartment we were met by the owner David and shown around the apartment. He explained all we needed to know and explained that since his last visit he had now installed internet TV that included all UK Freeview channels as well as many others.

The apartment within easy walking distance of all of the amenities of Fuengirola, the location is slightly elavated but not a hindrance . We have been to this part of Spain twice a year for the last 15 years and this is by far the best private accomodation we have stayed in.

Also within a couple of minutes walk is the huge shopping centre Miramar which boasts many shops, eateries, cinema and a huge supermarket Eroski which meets all self catering needs ! The shopping centre was visited on numerous occasions by the 3 teenagers we had with us. The complex even had a GO Kart track on the roof

The apartment is exactly what you see on the website, set in immaculate gardens with a good sized pool with every mod con you could ask for (and comfortable beds), including wifi and when travelling with 3 teenage children this was a huge benefit.

Once again the apartment provided a wonderful base and was very quiet in the evenings. You are also provided with a secure parking space which was very helpful when doing your big shop

We would recommend this apartment to all as it is excellent value for money and the owner is very professional and friendly

Owner's Response: Thank you very much to these guests for their super review. How very rewarding to hear such feedback. It makes all the effort by my small cleaning and maintenance team and myself so worthwhile. Tempting as it is to put my rates up for next year hehe, I am holding them at the same as for the current year. Thank you once again.

Bed linen changed weekly for stays of longer than one week. No additional cleaning costs. No maid service but this can be arranged on demand at the guests' expense.

Unlike most apartments, this one boasts a huge terrace bigger than the lounge in fact and will no doubt be where guests will spend most of their time.
