About the property

House in Fuengirola, Costa del Sol, Spain - Quiet Location, Next To The Promenade- All Amenities In The Immediate Vicinity

This recently refurbished townhouse is one of very few next to the sea in Fuengirola, just 50 meters to beach. Situated on a prestigious small complex at the 'quiet' end of Fuengirola, between Hotel Las Piramides and the castle.

The complex was built between a beautiful park and the promenade. It is always just a stones throw from the new riverside park. You have everything near, no need at all for a car.

About Francisco J Martinez

I live in Madrid-Spain with my wife, Mercedes, and our daughter, Lara. My wife works in the Foreign Office and I am a Chartered Accountant in a Big Four Firm.

My wife and I have past our holidays in Fuengirola since we were in our twenties, because this is a beautiful place for relaxing, sun bathing and sporting. It is really a place for families where you can find everything you want for your family.

I love Andalusia, its history, the people, the folklore, the weather, the beaches and the fantastic gastronomy (please try the marvelous 'espetos' of sardines by the beach - DELICIOUS with a beer).

And you can find many other attractions as running areas, pine forests just 15 minutes driving, hippodrome, dolphin watching excursions, scuba diving places not far away, discos

Francisco J Martinez purchased this house in 2014

Why Francisco J Martinez chose West Costa del Sol

We love Fuengirola because of the fantastic facilities in the area. It is a really nice city for families where you can find everything you want for your family holidays. Although it is a popular place it is never crowded, even in summer.

Fuengirola is close to some important and beautiful places as Marbella, Puerto Banus, Ronda (visit Ronda), Mijas (donky taxis), Malaga, Antequera, Frigiliana, Nerja, Maro ... and you can also have a one day trip to Morocco (Marrakesh the ancient Arabic city) or Gibraltar.

My wife and I wanted all these things together to get active or relaxing holidays, depending on our feelings.

Fuengirola is a save place, good your younger people.

It is a good place for children since we have the famous zoo, which is visited for lot of peeple from many people, and the city is proud of offering lot of amusing activities for younger people and children.

What makes this house unique

The property is 50 meters from the fabulous beach and 100 meters from X Century Sohail Arabic Castle. Culture events are run in the Castle. The best area of Fuengirola.

There are beach 'chiringitos' just two minute walk from the house where yo can enjoy great local foot and delicious evening meals at reasonable prices. You can also enjoy the comfort of the house if you prefer to provide on the close supermarkets.

We have recently restored and furnished the house. You will feel comfortable on new environment.

The property has a community pool open all year. The house is located just in the border of the pool with direct access. The pool is in a flowered garden well attended. Sights from house are direct to the pool and you can also watch the sea from the terraces.

Free Wifi and Satellite TV,. air conditioned and heat in all rooms and sitting room.

Stay over Easter

  • 4 of 5

The whole experience was really good. The contact with the owner was thorough and on the day of arrival and departure the estate agent was excellent. The property was nice and clean and we had room to spread out. In terms of the townhouse it is in a private complex with access to a pool which the kids loved. We where lucky with the weather going over Easter and as you might expect the pool was a little cool but if you are going later in the year you will be fine. You are 5 minutes walk from the beach and the main strip which you can use to traverse the town.

Would recommend staying here

Lovely family spot

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated in a gated complex a one minute walk from the beach. There is a large pool with a substantial shallow end for the children to play in. Unexpectedly the pool is monitored by a lifeguard during most of its opening hours. He is very professional and does an excellent job without being too strict. We did notice that siesta is observed and whilst you can use the pool, it's polite to be quieter between 3:30pm and 5:30pm.

The property is set in beautiful gardens with plenty of shady spots, and umberellas around the poolside area. It's so pretty and you could easily spend a day there.

The beach is very close by, as are two children's parks. It's is perfect if you have children.

We hired a car, but there was no need. Parking is difficult and you really do have everything you need in a short distance.

Inside the villa is quite traditional. The fixtures and fittings are not modern and shiny but the villa has absolutely everything you need, even down to deck chairs, toys and a brolly for the beach!

The kitchen is well appointed with plenty of pots and pans. There is a dishwasher but we didn't need to use it.

The living area is spacious and has a good TV and a DVD/BR player. Take some films to watch as the only English Channel we could find was the news. We only used the tv to entertain the kids.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms on the first floor, one a twin, and one a double. The bathroom is spacious and the beds and linen are in good condition.

Upstairs again is the final double bedroom and en suite.

All rooms have outside space, I particularly liked how secure it was as we had small children with us.

Air conditioning is throughout the property and is most welcome! It all works well. There are also large fans in most rooms.

The owner has thought of everything to make this an inexpensive holiday let for families.

On a personal note. Whilst staying we had some car trouble, without the help of the owner we would have been in a real pickle. I just want to make it clear that the people you are renting from are incredibly welcoming and absolutely bent over backwards to help us. We are so happy to have found this place and will return because the owner and his family are just super.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday!

Wonderful holidayhouse in Fuengirola

  • 4 of 5

We, 7 adults, enjoyed a lot to spend a week in Pueblo Castillo 36. House is very well equipped, rooms and other places were clean. Everything we need, was founded. Also swimming pool. Friendly and helpful owner. The beach, restaurants, markets, all are nearby and short walk for bus- and train station. We can recommend for adults and for families with the children.

Excellant holiday home

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this town house for two weeks. The facilities are as stated and the accommodation is in great condition. Property was clean and well maintained good location near to the beach with excellent children's play area just a minutes walk away.

Great restaurants 15 minutes walk away into the but well worth it with unlimited choice of places to eat and drink.

The owner has a holiday house next door and although not in residence all the time is a frequent visitor and is always available by email.

The satellite TV is OK but has only BBC world news and CNN Europe. however is you are fortunate enough to speak Spanish or German there is an unlimited choice of channels

Garden area and pool well maintained and although we did not use them often would be great for a family.

All in all have no problem recommending this propert as a holiday destination

Owner's Response: We are happy with this valuation since it proves that our gets have got a good stay in our house. It is our objective to achieve that our guests get the best holidays with us. The house is fully equipped and we constantly review it to include any additional item that could improve it and make it more comfortable. My wife and I consider that someone will only be comfortable in our house if we personally feel comfortable. Therefore, we treat the house as our own home. We wold like to highlight that our guests have the highest consideration about the community property, the pool and the garden , since they are perfect for families with children. And also the close beach and surroundings. We are happy with the high performance of our guests holidays.

Winters are soft in Fuengirola area, since the close mountains retain the micro-climate. When other part of Spain are cold and rainy Fuengirola use to be hot and dry, even in Winter.

Nevertheless, the house has a fantastic chimeney to enjoy the evening having a drink when the sun goes.

For CHRISTMAS and EASTER seasons Fuengirola has excellents leisure offers, since they run popular demostrations and processions. The city becomes plenty of Street activities ans markets where you can find the deepth of popular feelings of the Andulucian people.

In Christmas and Easter most visitors become excited for the emotive acts of religious fervor on the streets.
