About Donna Humphreys

Young British woman who has been living in Spain for 15 years. I spent 9 years living here in fuengirola, currently living in Barcelona and enjoying long weekends on the costa del sol when possible. This apartment was purchased to be my home, but due to personal reasons, my stay there was very brief.

Donna Humphreys purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Donna Humphreys chose West Costa del Sol

As mentioned before, I purchased this apartment to create a home, but within a few months, moved to Barcelona. The apartment is not the typical holiday let, and is equipped with quality and comfortable furniture and accessories. I still like to spend any free time here in the south, so the apartment has to be up to living standards.

It's in a quiet residential area, close to the beach, restaurants and a minute away from the train station, making it the perfect location.

Excellent Apartment & Excellent Location!!

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Donna's apartment. The property is spacious, very clean and well maintained - and above all remains very cool in rising temperatures. The access to numerous UK TV stations and wifi is an added bonus. Communication and reservation / deposit payment with Donna was also very easy and straightforward and meet & greet with Beverley in Los Boliches was also perfect. Without doubt would attempt to book apartment again if visiting Los Boliches. Scores 10 out of 10!! Steve Pearce May 2016.

wonderful Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 couples who stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks.

We can only reiterate what everyone else has said.

It is a fabulous apartment with a very high spec. It is so very well equipped with the very best of equipment and appliances from the cultlery draw to the 50 inch tv and gadgets that go with it. There is nothing you could wish for over and above what is already there.

We have stayed in many apartments in Los Boliches over the years but this has to be the very best for us.

Thankyou to Julia for meeting and greeting us at the train station. Special thanks to Donna for arranging things so well and for the very quick responses to any emails sent regarding bookings etc. We could not fault any aspect of our holiday in this apartment, and we look forward to staying there again in the near future. Thanku, Heather, David, Gail and David.

Location

Nearest Airport
23.5 Kilometres
Málaga (AGP)
Nearest Train
60 Metres
Los Boliches
Nearest Beach
300 Metres
Los Boliches
Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

2 minute walk to the blue flag beaches of Los Boliches where you can find anything from relaxing on the many sun beds available, to the specialty of fried local fish in the beach bars, up to jet ski's, pedalos and most other water sports. You'll be inclined to join the many people taking quiet strolls along the promenade, day and night, enjoying the beautiful views and relaxed atmosphere of what's said to be the best promenade on the Mediterranean.

Travel:

Malaga airport is 15 miles away, and takes 20 minutes by car. Taxi's are always available, although a cheaper option is to take the train service from the airport to Los Boliches, this costs around 3.50€ per person, takes approx 25 minutes, and the apartment is 1 minute walk away from the station.

Distances:

The area is full of all types of restaurants, and has a wide variety of supermarkets and banks all in walking distance. Day trips to nearby towns and cities are available from local travel agents at low prices. More information can be given if needed.

Further Details:

Normal opening hours in Spain are 9-14 and 17-20, giving you plenty of time to visit shops in the centre, although you will find that most stores and supermarkets are open all day from 9-21. The Miramar shopping centre is a popular favourite, having all the shops under one large air conditioned roof, there are direct buses from Los Boliches.

Fuengirola Bio Park, located right in the town centre, gives us a taste of the wild. This is a different concept of a zoo, it has less species than other zoos, but they have recreated their natural habitats, making them feel more at home, and therefore encouraging their very special breeding program.

A day trip to Mijas "pueblo" is also highly recommended, taking in the scenery from the "white village" that could almost be a post-card.

Locally, everything you need is close by on foot, including restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets, banks, chemist's and travel agencies to organize day trips.
