LOCATION BEYOND PERFECT ....

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in this apartment twice and are returning again in September, this says everything about Karen’s apartment and the fabulous location. Karen met us on arrival and was very nice, helpful and easy to deal with. The apartment is basic, clean and very homely. I particularly enjoyed Karen’s huge selection of books and the comfortable easy chairs to relax in … bliss! It is in an ideal location for exploring i.e. near train station and the bus to Malaga stops outside. The apartment complex has three swimming pools, tennis court and a really nice bar beside the pool. There is an abundance of flowers, trees and plenty of shaded areas to relax. The Mercadona supermarket is five minutes walk from the apartment … there is a fabulous bakery around the corner and some really nice restaurants nearby ... Can’t wait to return in September … Thanks again Karen:-)

Very nice location

  • 3 of 5
Accurate description of property on web site
well maintained grounds and pools
close proximity to beach, restaurants and nightlife
very good and frequent public transportation
ambience not very spanish, more dutch/British
owner present and helpful
studio only 2-star standard, could use a make-over and put more effort into cleaning
recommandation for tapas: Taberna de Juan with traditional good quality food and wine at a very modest price

Owner's Response: Dear Neils,

Thank you for your comments which are always appreciated. You are correct on the complex having a lot of Dutch and British as it is very popular with these two nationalities and not many Danish! In July and August is when the Spanish have their holidays so this is when the balance changes.

I am glad you enjoyed Taberna de Juan. Juan is quite a character and this bar is probably the most traditional tapas bar in La Carihuela.

Re you comment on 2 star you are probably correct. I have tried in the description to describe it as a bright sunny apartment and the photos are exactly what there is: all the basic facilities needed in a self-catering apartment. As the studio is privately owned it is not generically furnished. I am aiming more for comfort. The kitchen, for those who have stayed before, has had all the cupboards changed as they were looking very tired and are now new and white. Re the cleaning please note that I do not advertise cleaning during the stay. I supply all linen for the duration of the stay with extra of everything including beach towels. Main reason for this I had family stay in another studio a few years back and they had cleaning included. They found it very intrusive having the cleaner knocking on the door all the time or arriving and finding them in the middle of cleaning. As the studio is a 25sqm self catering studio I leave all cleaning materials for clients and over the years this appears to have been appreciated. Of course anyone with disabilities is always helped out. Also this is reflected in my prices which I feel are very reasonable compared to other self catering studios, but of course if anyone wants extra cleaning that can always be arranged. Anything to help out!

Thank you again for your comments.

Kind regards

GREAT STUDIO GREAT LOCATION :)

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a two week holiday at Karen's Studio Apartment. We would definately recommend this apartment as it is in a great location for beach, restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets. Super view from the balcony out to the sea and also overlooking one of the pools. The complex has beautiful, well maintained gardens. La Carihuela is a lovely area of Torremolinos. This was an easy and pleasant booking transaction. Thankyou Karen and we hope to return.

Owner's Response: Dear Jackie it was great meeting you both. Thank you for your kind comments. I am pleased that you found the location ideal. Having lived here for years I know how great it is and it is nice to meet people who enjoy La Carihuela as much as myself. A little hidden jewel. I have known people who have been all along the coast and then they discover La Carihuela and then never stray again! I trust you had a pleasant flight back and you know where I am if you ever need anything!

Thank you again.

Kind regards
Karen

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5
Great location, great apartment, great view. Has everything you could possibly need just a short walk away from restaurants, beaches and marina. Karen was very helpful and came to meet us with keys as we were a late arrival, and we were able to remain in the apartment until late on our departure day. Apartment was clean and well-maintained, close to lots of shops/ferrys/boat trips. Altogether great holiday, would reccomend both apartment and Carihuela beach area highly.

Owner's Response: Dear Kathy,

Thank you for your kind comments. I am glad that you enjoyed your last day on the beach without having to worrying about left luggage areas etc. I personally think La Carihuela is a great place and it is good to get such glowing comments from a young couple. There is definately plenty to do no matter what age you are! Anyway you know where we are and it would be great to see you again! Thanks again.

I have put wheelchair accessible. Generally the area of la Carihuela is excellent for wheelchairs. So is the complex with ramps and lifts. There is one area which is uneven and the shower room is only a small entrance. If you are interested then please let me know the size of wheelchair to check accessibility. On site there is a computer room with internet access. There is also left luggage and shower facilities for departures but if there are no arrivals guests can remain in the studio until departure. There is a tennis court on site - price 5 Euros per hour. Book via reception.
