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 and built in wardrobes. The main bedroom has fantastic sea views and an ensuite 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. 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 sofa and a sofa bed, modern oak furniture, flat screen TV, DVD player, wifi & internet TV. 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 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 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 Marbella area

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,

A stunningly placed quiet safe apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Very well furnished with everything needed for an enjoyable holiday by the sea. Easy access to at least five restaurants of good quality. No need for a car with a well stocked supermarket nearby. My girl friend and I would love to return. The pool and surrounding areas kept in a good condition with plenty of sun loungers. No traffic noise.

Excellent property which lived up to to its own criteria/description!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property to anyone with a family!

As international tourists from Australia the location provided us with the options of seaside resort, touring to significant local destinations e.g. Gibraltar in an hour approx. or the mountains to the magnificent town/city of Ronda for historical features, upmarket shopping and dining.

Glad we chose Costa del Sol "Region" rather than remain in Malaga which was our original plan.

Thanks for the opportunity to stay at your property Barbara!

Coming from Australia again, I would follow you detailed instructions to the letter rather than second guess your directions as my "navigators" did!

P.S. Have your maintenance man lubricate that front door as sea air obviously plays havoc with the lock!

Great spacious apartment, on the beach, fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Rented the apartment for 10 days over the easter period, and it was perfect. It is a large two bedroom apartment, about 30 feet from the beach. Was just lovely to be so close to the beach and just take in the sound of the waves.

Two large bedrooms and two bathrooms (1 ensuite). Kitchen is great as well. Nice and clean, full of utensils, whatever you need.

There are two small supermarkets close by (5 mins walk) to buy anything you need, however i just used the apartment as a base, as i was driving around alot (ironically property hunting), so i dropped into Carrefour and Mirimar in Fuengirola for a couple of larger shops.

Parking was easy. You can park inside the complex about 30 feet from the front door. Easter weekend was obviously busier, but after that, there was plenty of space.

There is a large outdoor pool, and an indoor pool, as well as the beach. If you are there with children, they will be spoiled for choice.

Communications from Deborah were great, no issues. Would easily recommend and rent again.

Thanks

Dean

Beautiful beachside apartment ideal for families and couples

  • 5 of 5

Solymar is a beautiful and well furnished apartment between Fuengirola and Marbella. It was relatively easy to find. It had everything you need there. Parking was easy. The terrace was beautiful with splendid views. Our children enjoyed the outdoor pool (albeit a bit cold in April) and the indoor pool with jacuzzi. There was a nice lawn outside the property where the children can run around too. The kitchen had all the mod cons with all the utensils supplied and my wife was able to cook some dinners there easily. There is a supermarket within walking distance and I would recommend this. The apartment is modern and clean. The owners were helpful in contact emails.

We had good weather for the week and we will definitely be coming back again very soon. We have stayed at many places in the Costa Del Sol but this rates as the best due to the beachfront location and outdoor space that were lovely. We didn't try the restaurant next door but it looked lovely.

The only thing that perhaps need improving are the airer and parasol. A nice addition would be a small barbecue that could be used.

A good find and would suit couples or families with 1 or 2 children.
