About Alex Johnstone

I am a Brit living in South Africa for the last 6 years. I love the coast and like splitting time between Cape Town and Spain. I take great pride in my properties and have spent a lot of time designing and decorating them to a high standard

Alex Johnstone purchased this house in 2014

Why Alex Johnstone chose Nerja area

I have loved this area for many years, my parents have had a property here for over twenty years so I've seen it develop and improve significantly.

Maro is a traditional Andalusian village but very close to the beach and also to Nerja town which has many restaurants and bars.

There are lots of great beaches along the coast within a short drive, in addition to the local Maro beach.

I bought this house and had an architect draw up plans for a completely new and modern layout behind the traditional village facade.

What makes this house unique

The house has the benefit of being close to Nerja but situated in the quieter village of Maro just 3km away. Behind the traditional Andalus exterior is a modern relaxed space done to a very high specification. This house is unlike any other in the village.

Everything was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Alexander was helpful and accommodating before we arrived and his folks were perfect hosts. There when you wanted or needed them. Staying in Maro was a perfect choice for us a quaint, guiet tiny village just a bit down the road from the busy and touristy Nerja. The house looks as good in reality as it does in the pictures. A chef would be happy in the kitchen which has everything you could want or need. There is one small problem... the bedrooms and decks, not to mention the pool, are so nice, you have to remind yourself to get out to see and do the sights. We had a car which was very helpful but there is bus and taxi service as well. Parking was never a problem. We traveled a lot during our stay and access to high speed divided highways was excellect, but you can also twist and turn along the coast and access the many beaches.

Que demander de plus?

  • 5 of 5

La maison d'Alex a tout pour plaire : très belle, très propre, très bien équipée, confortable, dans un beau et calme village tout près de la jolie Nerja et à quelques minutes à pied de la superbe grotte de Nerja... Difficile de trouver mieux!

Depuis Maro, il est très facile de visiter les charmants villages de l'arrière-pays de même que les grandes villes telles Malaga et Grenade, toutes deux à une relative proximité.

Nous recommandons sans hésitation la maison d'Alex et espérons revenir un jour au "Maro townhouse".

Merci Alex, Liz et Robert pour votre hospitalité.

Perfect in everyway, you will not be disappointed

  • 5 of 5

Maro Townhouse was just the tonic we needed after having a sight seeing cities tour of the South of Spain for our first week. The house has been renovated to the highest standard with exquisite taste and design with stunning views of the mountains and sea. It is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, even a welcome pack which we weren't expecting. The house is well positioned with local bars, restaurants and a good walk to the beach. We'll definitely be back, thank you Alex.

A true five star!

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a superb location. The welcome we received was second to none - nothing was too much trouble. All areas, both inside and out, are spotlessly clean. The beds are extremely comfortable. The house is spacious. Everything you need and more is provided.

The photographs really don't do it justice! Absolutely faultless.

I really can't recommend highly enough!

Thank you!

Lovely house with all you need for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This house house is absolutely stunning. The attention to detail and the quality of the furnishings are outstanding. The photographs of it are lovely but really don't do it justice. The booking process was very easy and all emails were answered quickly.

We received a warm welcome on our arrival and were given some great tips on where to eat out within walking distance.We had a relaxing week here and enjoyed every moment.
