About the Owner


We have had this apartment since 2005 and have never regretted buying it. We have had some great times there with all the family and grand children. There is plenty of attractions for all ages which are mostly walking distance from the apartment.

Clean, comfortable and central.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and comfortable in a good central position. It is within walking distance of Benalmadina Marina and the buses which run between Malaga and Fuengerola. There are plenty of restaurants, bars and supermarkets nearby therefore a car is not necessary.

We found the apartment easy to book and Brian, the owner was very helpful in sending us lots of information and suggestions. Any queries we had were dealt with as promptly and efficiently as possible!

As winter visitors, we had no experience of the gardens or pool but all the areas around the apartment looked clean and tidy.

We enjoyed daytime visits to Torremolinos, Fuengerola, Malaga, Mijas and Pueblo Benalmadena. On recommendation we enjoyed excellent meals at the local Chinese and Indian restaurants plus an extremely good 'Carvery'.

All in all, we found the apartment a good choice and we would have no problems recommending it to friends - we look forward to the possibility of returning again for a summer break. Many Thanks to Brian and Frances.

First class apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was a very pleasant surprise. Spacious, well equipped, full kitchen, comfortable beds. Clean & nicely decorated with pleasant balcony space to eat breakfast & spend a pleasant evening. Good choice of english tv channels & good wifi connection. Owner Brian, very good, answered all our questions promptly, refunded our deposit quickly & even sent sae to return keys. Our only regret and the reason we will not use this apartment again, is the location. Situated on a steep hill, it was not good for my breathing as I suffer with COPD. If you are fit and able to walj the hill, it is a great apartment to stay in.

Superb apartment ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 2 adults and 4 children aged 8 to 16 and found this apartment to be ideal for us. It was spotlessly clean, light and extremely spacious with everything that you could need to self cater while on holiday. Having two bathrooms when there are 6 of us was great!! The balcony had lovely views and was perfect for an evening drink. The pool and garden areas are immaculate and there was always plenty of room to sunbathe and chill out. The complex is in a quiet street just a 5 min walk into the resort and about 10 mins to the Marina. We had a really lovely holiday in Benalmadena made even better by staying at this apartment. We would definitely recommend it to other families and would also look to stay here again ourselves!! The owners reply very quickly to any emails and were extremely helpful by providing a thorough guide to the apartment, the local and wider area. Thank you Brian - we all loved our holiday!!!

This apartment certainly does not disappoint!!! It is extremely spacious, spotlessy clean and very well equipped. It is in a quite location in between Belalmadena and Torromolinos but only minutes walk to beaches, marina and also walking distance to 3 major supermarkets. I would highly recommend this apartment and if I was to return to this area I would be booking with Brian.

Thank you Brian.

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment. It is spacious, clean and well maintained.Everything you need is supplied. The owner is available and helpful. The best thing I liked is the quiet location.

Even though you are 10 minutes from the beach and the marina, 5 minutes from the bus stop and 15 minutes from the train station, there is no traffic noise. Also the apartment is not overlooked at all. I would thoroughly recommend this.

A superb base for enjoying the Costa del Sol

  • 5 of 5

I booked for Christmas and New Year and a wonderful stay, I arrived to find the apartment immaculately clean, well prepared and equipped exactly as described in the ad. Loved the internet and all the TV channels especially catching up with the holiday Sky movies and Sky/BT football with my kids. I know Benalmadena really well any way and it is a great place for a winter break -ran along the beach in the sun on Christmas day! Can't recommend this apartment highly enough. Thanks to Brian for doing all the admin so painlessly.
