About the property

Apartment in Elviria, Marbella, Costa del Sol, Andalusia - Quiet location, stroll through the private garden to the beach or relax on the secluded patio.

'Solymar', a newly refurbished ground floor, 2 bed apartment situated in Marbessa – Elviria on the Costa del Sol, with frontline beach location and uninterrupted views of the sea. Located 40 minutes from Malaga airport and 10 minutes from Marbella town centre, Solymar is in a fantastic location for you to take full advantage of all the Costa del Sol has to offer from beaches to mountains, golf , tennis, kite-surfing, shopping and entertainment.

The apartment has 2 air-conditioned bedrooms both furnished with single beds, bedside tables, desk with chair and built in wardrobes. The main bedroom has fantastic sea views and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a well appointed bathroom adjacent. A fully equipped kitchen was installed in June 2015 complete with modern units & Spanish granite worktops, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer, oven, microwave and ceramic hobb. A large arch from the kitchen opens to the lounge area with great views of the terrace and sea beyond.

For comfort the lounge is air-conditioned with a leather sofa and a sofa bed, modern oak furniture, flat screen TV, DVD player, wifi & internet TV. A glass dining with seating for 6 allows you to dine inside on cooler evenings. Push back the sliding patio doors to the large patio with sun awning and terrace beyond, there you can relax on a lounger, dine alfresco at the 6 seater table or rest on the patio sofas with a chilled drink.

A short flight of steps lead down from the terrace to the garden and from there you can access the gardens, outdoor pool & sandy beach beyond. Playa Real is a secure complex with a transparent fence around the garden with a resident gate access to the beach. If mobility is an issue, there are several short flights of steps to access both the apartment and beach.

A short walk along the beach brings you to one of several Chiringuitos where you can enjoy a drink or a lovely Spanish meal. Further along walking east brings you to Cabopino with a delightful marina, several restaurants and of course ‘Andy’s bar’ on the beach. Walk west and you can make your way all the way to Marbella town with many places to stop on the way for refreshments.

Playa Real boasts 2 pools; a large outdoor pool with sun loungers and a bar in the summer and a heated indoor pool with sauna. Well kept tranquil gardens separate the complex from the beach, just stroll through the beach gate to enjoy one of the finest sandy beaches in Marbella.

Looking for more than a beach and pool? With easy access to the A-7 all the sights and amenities of the Costa del Sol are within reach or you can venture inland to visit to historical towns of Rhonda or Seville. No car? No problem, you can still explore the area, the buses into Marbella and Fuengirola are reliable, inexpensive and frequent or take a taxi along the coast.

Pass under the iconic Marbella Andalucia arch then onto the real Marbella, no visit is incomplete without wandering around Marbella old town where you get a feel of the traditional Spain, enjoy flamenco dancing or eating in one of the many restaurants.

About Deborah Burrell

My name is Deborah Burrell, with my husband Stephen we have three teenage children. We are both professionals working in healthcare and live in Hertfordshire. Our children are currently studying for exams so a relaxing 'bolt hole' is just what we all need.

We work hard, often very long hours and really look forward to our holidays in the sunshine. We have spent many days and evening discussing the refurbishment and furniture for the apartment, hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Deborah Burrell purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Deborah Burrell chose Elviria

We spent a quite a while choosing a property because we were certain we had to have a sea view and we would not compromise on that, not just a view from a distance or between other developments but a clear view where you can hear the waves -with only a secure terrace and garden between us and the sea this certainly fits the bill.

With 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms a large lounge/dinner and a kitchen with a view of the sea, this apartment is perfect for adults & families looking for a holiday situated on the beach but close enough to all the amenities of the Marbella and costa del Sol region.

Young children? Just pop across the garden to the beach, no lengthy trips in a hot car or up countless steps to retrieve left items. Stay at our apartment and you and your children can play on the beach then wander back to the apartment for lunch or a siesta. (no worries about where the nearest toilet is!)

Situated in the Marbessa-Elviria area the complex is quiet & secluded but close to beach side restaurants, within walking distance of the local supermarket and just a short drive to Elviria centre with plenty of shops and restaurants. Marbella, Puerto Banus, Fuengirola & Estapona are only a short drive away. The airport in Malaga is only 30 miles away.

What makes this apartment unique

This great apartment with its stunning sea view and easy access to the beach is fantastic for adults and children alike. With air-conditioning/heating, free wifi, flat screen TV & DVD player we aim to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Completely redecorated with new furniture, electrics and a new kitchen 'Solymar' is a home from home with all the conveniences you expect in a smart holiday apartment.

Very few properties can claim the beach is just a 35 metres stroll to the beach!

Enjoy a dip in the pool or stroll along the beach to the many Chiringuitos. The world famous 'Nikki Beach' can be found around 10 minute walk down the beach, walk along to Cabopino marina for lunch or dinner or enjoy one of the many beach side restaurants.

The large secure terrace is well appointed with 2 sofas, a coffee table, large dining table with chairs and sun loungers.

Relax in tranquil surroundings or take a short drive to the A-7 to access the Costa del Sol and Andalusia.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an absolutely fantastic stay in your beautiful apartment! The terrace provided the ideal place for the girls to sunbathe, whilst I stayed cool in the beautiful air conditioned lounge. We made great use of the pool and enjoyed dinner in the restaurant on the beach next door most evenings. I have no doubt that we will be back to the Costa Del Sol in the near future and I know exactly where we will be delighted to stay again.

Kind regards and best wishes,
Jun 2016

Elvira apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was in very good location right on the beach with lot's of restaurants to choose from .The hotel restaurant on site was very good with two for one on Tuesdays and Thursdays and happy hour 6-7 and nearby camp site had as good a supermarket as anywhere.

We found Sinbads as the best restaurant, Andy's bar on Sunday with live music is a must.

Santa Maria golf course was our favorite but would not play Marbella GC again

The apartment had everything including IPTV which had all the channels you could wish for everything else worked including an excellent kitchen and two very good bathroom/showers

Would highly recommend the board walk to Calahonda and

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Deborah was really helpful, getting us local taxi numbers and answering all the queries we had.

The apartment it's self is lovely with great sea views and a short walk between local restaurants. The setting of the restaurants along the beach is amazing to sit and watch the world go by.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be looking to return again soon.

Great Place, fantastic view

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 7 days in December. The apartment was clean and well kept. The view was fantástica and the owner was reasonable to deal with. There was a small grocery store nearby, a few restaurants, although many seemed to be closed for the holidays. The kitchen was well stocked with supplies, my only complaint is that there was no bathtub.

Just a 35 metre stroll across the garden is the Mediterranean sea, lapping at the sea wall, along from this is a beautiful long sandy beach stretching from Cabopino all the way to Marbella. Great for families and sunbathers alike. Relax on the terrace where you can see the sea or walk along to the many beach side chiringuitos for lunch, dinner or a drink to watch the sunset. Next door to the complex is le Papillon, a lovely bar & restaurant with several more a few minutes walk along the beach or pathway in both directions. Located a 10 minutes along the beach is the famous 5* Don Carlos Hotel and Nikki Beach Club.

Tennis is available at the Don Carlos resort and for golf lovers there are several golf clubs very close by including the Santa Maria Golf & Country Club and Greenlife Golf in Elviria Hills which also boasts a Michelin star restaurant El Lago.

East is the neighbouring urbanisation of Cabopino, with its charming port and beaches is just five minutes drive or 20 minutes walk along the beach, home to Cabopino Golf and a further five minutes, direction Fuengirola, you come to the very British area of Calahonda, with its host of facilities to shop and dine.

Drive west and the beautiful town of Marbella is just 10 minutes away, wander around the charming Old Town of Marbella and enjoy a drink or meal in the fragrant Plaza de los Naranjos (Orange Square), the town has superb dining choices. Glitzy Puerto Banús with its luxury yachts and stylish boutiques is just past Marbella.

If shopping interests you along with the designer shops in Porto Banús there is a large shopping centre (La Cañada) situated just outside Marbella offering over 200 stores.


Malaga airport is only 40 minutes drive away. The local buses into Marbella are frequent from the bus stop 5 minutes walk inland from the apartment. Taxi into Marbella from the apartment cost around 20 Euros.
