Guestbook comments from the owner
We both enjoyed our stay at your apartment in Carihuela and would recommend it and Alan and Dianne couldn't have been more helpful. I tried to put this review on the website but it isn't accepting my password. One note of warning, tall people would want to watch their heads coming down the stairs as i gave mine a whack bringing down our luggage. We hope to return sometime, John And Flora Monaghan

***PERFECT BASE***

  • 5 of 5
Right from the start, we were collected by prior arrangement with the owner's, at Malaga Airport, on time and taken straight to the apartment. Everything we needed to know about the superb, clean, roomy and well maintained apartment, was explained to us and we were shown around the immediate area. The fantastic beach was on the doorstep and the shops, bars and restaurants were too many to be fully explored! The resort was clean, friendly and the locals made a real fuss of the kids. Having travelled to many destinations around the world, I can honestly say the food was excellent, with numerous restaurants to be tried (new tapas bar next to apartment was exceptional) and the facilities were second to none.
I could carry on for pages and pages, all I can say is we wanted for nothing, had two weeks pure fun and relaxation and I have already made plans to return! Be quick though because many of my friends are planning a trip here!
To finish I was fortunate enough to meet Gavin and Carol in person and I can say first hand, that they are genuine, honest and extremely helpful, which all adds to the overall experience... Get booking!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your great review, I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Alan who looks after the property will welcome you and help you with the layout of the house and show you where the local supermarkets and other amenities are. There is no problem buying your usual products in the supermarkets, and most of the Spanish speak very good English.
The local church is only 100yds away, this is where the local Spanish weddings are held, where you can watch at close hand and see true Spanish fashion.
If any future renters would like to ask for more information contact me at my email address on the enquiry form and I will be in touch as soon as possible, thanks again for taking time to write this review.

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN 10/10

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a great family holiday in both apartments 12 and 13. My daughter and her family in 13, myself and husband in 12. We could not believe how peaceful it was and yet the busy shops, bars, restaurants etc were all on the doorstep. The beach was a mere 2 min walk away. The apartments were as the owners
Carol and Gavin said they would be, and honestly they were like a home from home. They were spotless and are looked after very well by Dianne and Allan. We will be returning again to stay here as we found it to be a great little piece of a heaven.

OASIS OF TRANQUILITY FEW STEPS FROM THE BEACH

  • 3 of 5
We visited Torremolinos in February 2014 during the school holidays and had a great stay in Carihuela. The communication with Carol and later with Alan was impeccable - they promptly answered all our questions. Alan also very kindly took us to the airport at the crack of dawn on Saturday. Thanks again, Alan!
The house/duplex is situated around the corner from the seaside promenade, but it was very quiet and tranquil. It is nicely and thoughtfully decorated and we did not miss a thing. The weather in winter can get chilly in Spain, but the heating system worked without a glitch and there was an electric heater and extra blankets as well.
There are lots of little shops, cafes and restaurants in the nearest proximity as well as two bakeries where we could buy our breakfast pastries fresh from the oven. It's a really nice neighbourhood.
You don't really need a car - the buses that run on the main road take you in both directions: Malaga and Fuengirola and further on to Marbella. You only need it if you want to make longer roadtrips - to Ronda. We had a lot of fun - visited the Crocodile parc, Butterfly parc, the zoo (Bioparc) in Fuengirola, Selwo Marina parc in Benalmadena, Malaga and Nerja, all by public transport alone.
Having seen the region, I absolutely reccomend Carihuela - it's smack in the middle of everything - and would stay at Carol's place again.
The website is acting a bit odd - so in case my star rating does not show - it's five out of five. :)

FANTASTIC HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
I booked this holiday as a last minute trip because I think that this part of Spain is beautiful, I have been to quite a few places in La Carihuela, but this appartment has by far been the best place where I have stayed; I found the appartment very clean and well maintained. The communication between representatives of the accomodation was excellent and any queries we had were dealt with very swiftly. We all felt very secure and at home in the property. I will surely be returning many times.Thank you Gavin and Carol, for the lovely holiday!

LOVELY WELL APPOINTED APARTMENT

  • 4 of 5
Stayed here for 2 weeks in late October/early November. Overall the apartment was great, good location,close to everything,very well equipped with appliances etc and little instruction cards for almost every device apart from the washing machine (this would have been handy as all the programmings are obviously in spanish,so that was a bit of a hit and a miss,lol. Having a dishwasher and sky tv was an added bonus too.
I would have booked this for my christmas break of one month too but unfortunately i couldn't cope with the bed, for me it was too soft and i had to go sleep in the other room, taking the sheets & pillowslips with me as there were no spares, not ideal when you need to change the bedding as you had to make sure they would be dry to put back on. There may have been arrangements in place regards bedding etc but these were not conveyed to me.
The freezer was unfortunately broken when we arrived and there was no attempt to repair or replace it during our 2 week stay, so was a bit disappointed with that as we like to stock up (saves visiting the Mercadona too often) and do cook a fair bit on holiday. We had an issue with the water heater but a phone call to Allan and he was there within 30 minutes to sort it out. Shower was superb but bath took a long time to fill up and be warned, once the water heater gets to a certain temperature it starts to fill your bath with cold water so you have to turn the taps off and wait for heater to kick in again if you want a properly filled bath.
The beach, bars and restaurants are a mere hop,skip & a jump from the very well maintained apartment & courtyard, which is extremely quiet considering you are in the heart of La Carihuela
The surrounding restaurants & bars are plentiful and cater for everyone's taste but my favourite has to be up in Torremolinos centro (a 10-15 min walk), an Italian called Ciao (near Eugenios piano bar) and honestly you will not be disappointed in this place, portions are enormous and can easily feed 2 people, the prawn cocktail or melon and ham are to die for and they do not charge tourist prices,amazing value and we have been visiting there for over 10 years & love it, please do try it.
I hope my review doesn't sound like i didn't enjoy my stay here because i most definitely did, yes i had a few niggles but overall it is a great apartment in a wonderfully safe area and is furnished and maintained very well.

P.S. Please get a firmer bed Carol so that i can return, lol. x

Come and experience what the region has to offer and remember to book your holiday early! There are several golf clubs within close vicinity to the town, including one of the first golf courses built here - PARADOR del GOLF,also TORREQUEBRADA http://www.andalucia.com/golf/clubrealmalaga/home.htm Others locally are: Guadalhorce Lauro Alhaurin Torrequebrada.

Ski: Ski: The Sierra Nevada ski resort is located at Pradollano in the Sierra Nevada mountains. This is Europe's most southerly ski resort and it is small in comparison to other European resorts. However, the facilities are considered top-rate and it has hosted numerous national and international ski and snowboard events. The Sierra Nevada ski resort has numerous runs of varying difficulties to satisfy all levels of skiers. Natural snow is supplemented by snow cannons on some runs, and many skiers are pleasantly surprised to find that, because of its southerly position, the air temperature is usually warmer than other resorts. http://www.andalucia.com/sports/ski.htm
