Beautiful 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath apartment 40m2 Terrace. Super Views, WiFi, UK TV, CH

Overview

Property

Updated: 25-Nov-2016
Apartment in Fuengirola, Costa del Sol, Spain - Quiet, Secure Complex, 400 metres Beach, 350 metres Shopping Mall, Full UK TV, WiFi, Pool

This quiet complex, just 400 metres from the beach, is only 10 years old but, in December 2013, this apartment has been completely refurbished and Central Heating installed for winter stays. The apartment has all the main UK TV channels (all BBC, all ITV, Channels 4 and 5, several children's and film channels. The apartment also has its own private WiFi signal. A rare feature too is the huge 40 m2 balcony terrace boosting superb views and overlooking the super gardens and pool. There is an air-con unit in the lounge: 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 the Owner

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

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.

We had a very pleasant holiday, the apartment was lovely. Terrence D.

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.

excellent apartment

  • 4 of 5

we stayed in july in the hottest we have known in spain and the balcony was a godsend as was the pool, the apartment is excellent and is set in beautiful grounds, the myramar shopping mall is 250 metres away and all the amenities are close at hand, david the owner is on hand should you need him and the apartment is a credit to him, we would definitely stay again and would certainly recommend to families, thanks david for a lovely stay.

Owner's Response: Many thanks indeed to these guests for taking the time to write a review. It is rewarding for me and my small team to know that we are providing standards that generate such enjoyment by guests which, after all, is the whole point of going on holiday. I shall always wonder though why these guests did not award us 5 stars which the comments suggest we earned.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this apartment and had a great time. David the owner was lovely and very helpful especially when the wifi stopped working and I had 3 teenagers in despair!!! David promptly arranged someone to come out and fix it!!

The beach was close by but the town centre was quite a trek (25 mins) which was hard going in the heat. We would definitely return as could not fault the apartment at all.

Thanks once again for a great holiday David😄😄😄😄

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Becky for her review and I am so pleased that she and the family enjoyed the apartment so much and i look forward to welcoming them back in the future. I am not sure which part of town would be defined as the 'centre' because, in fact, like all coastal towns, Fuengirola is long and thin and hugs the coast rather than grow around any central point. In fact, there are 8 kms of sea-front which starts just 400 metres from the apartment. The 'heat' is why we love the Costa del Sol.

Best Apartment Ever

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 7 brilliant days in this wonderful apartment and I must state that this is the best apartment I have stayed in on my many visits to Spain. 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 even came back two days later to make sure all was well

The apartment within easy walking distance of all of the amenities of Fuengirola, the location is slightly elavated but not a hindrance as my 74 year old mother in law had no issues getting back to the apartment from Fuengirola. 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 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 2 teenage children this was a huge benefit.

The layout of the apartment was wonderful and the lounge area was perfect. The quality of the furniture was exceptional and the two leather settees were the best we have ever encountered in Spain as they both fitted 3 adults on and were very comfortable.

The balcony was very large with lots of chairs to relax on and got the sun all afternoon and evening

I would recommend this apartment to all families and must give David a lot of praise for how he looked after us throughout the stay

We had a great holiday and hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to these guests for their review. It is very rewarding to know that my investment in the property, the further investment in its refurbishment and re-furnishing as well as the efforts of my small cleaning and maintenance team all add up to this level of appreciation by my guests. There are many apartments available for holiday rental in Fuengirola and I wanted to place mine in the top slice in terms of standards and location but keep its pricing very competitive in order to attract holidaymakers, surprise them in a positive way and make them want to come back. These guests have already booked another week's stay for later this year.

Location

From the Owner

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
