It takes some 30 minutes to reach the station closest to the apartment. Ticket prices are less than 2 euros per person. Local trains can be taken e.g. towards Malaga. Buses, which frequently travel back and forth along the nearby road (Avenida de Carvajal), can be taken e.g. to Fuengirola city centre and Miramar shopping centre.

Golfing: There are many golf courses within a short drive, and dozens in the region. The best ones around Marbella are within less than one hour driving distance.

Skiing: MonteCañada is only two hours away from the Sierra Nevada Ski Resorts which have become quite popular. In suitable weather conditions Sierra Nevada can be seen from our apartment's private rooftop terrace.

About Miika

We are a family of four, and want to retire under Spanish sun ourselves, as soon as possible!

Miika purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Miika chose West Costa del Sol

Buying this apartment was a result of a careful selection process. We were looking for a good blend of quality, sceneries, beach proximity, quietness, spaciousness, privacy, and accessibility. And we found all of that in this apartment!

What makes this apartment unique

Extremely well equipped penthouse apartment with spectacular sceneries, huge open air private rooftop terrace solarium, with a real BBQ! Regained UK sat channels - we are one of the very few that again have them!

Guestbook comments from the owner

It would be remiss of me not to tell the truth. I thought about not doing a review due to the fact that we really loved the place, so much so that I'm sure we will be returning later on this year, and we would love to keep it all to ourselves to get the dates we want.



However that would be unfair and very greedy. I fully and unreservedly recommend the apartment to all and do so without fear of contradiction. It's a lovely apartment and located in a very quiet area. It is all if not better than described by the owner. The owner Miika will answer all questions and enquiries very quickly almost by return Email which is a great service in itself.



You will receive a warm welcome from Paul (who looks after the place for the owner) when you arrive and you will find it Spotlessly clean and very well presented for your stay. The roof terrace is Very private and a great sun trap to get rid of the white bits.



Access to the Balcony can be from the lounge or the bedroom with the in-suite. It’s lovely to sit relax and dine on the balcony.



Our party was 2 Ladies and one Gent all in their 60's and with a hire car. Yes, Montecanada sits on a hill so if you’re fit and want to exercise then you won’t need a car. The Train Station is not that far away and there are often Taxis there, outside the Torreblanca Hotel, and the Rovers Return Bar on the round about which is a couple of minutes walk from the station. It’s a 6€ fare.



We had a great time in a lovely apartment located in a lovely part of the Costa Del Sol.



Thanks Miika and Paul….

Excellent

  • 4 of 5

Excellent apartment – spacious, comfortable and very clean. Booking process was easy and any queries answered immediately. This was our first visit to mainland Spain so took up owner’s offer of a meet and greet service from Malaga airport. Driver took us straight to the apartment where Donna was waiting to let us in and show us around – very helpful and pleasant. We had arranged for Donna to do a small shop for us and everything we asked for was there – even 50 litres of water which saw us through most of our holiday. Apartment is up a fairly steep hill so would not be suitable for all. The private roof terrace with sun all day (or shade using the parasol) was fantastic. Some shade on the balcony terrace would have been good as this gets full sun in the morning and was quite hot when having breakfast. Air con in the second bedroom would have been nice – my daughter slept in the living room because it was too hot in the bedroom. Would definitely like to return and would recommend this property.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

The apartment with fantastic balcony and nice views was perfect for four people. Can recommend. The only thing, which was little disappointing to our kids, was the pool: it was open only 4 hours in the afternoon during the period we were there. But luckily the beach was not so far away. Special thanks to Donna, who was very helpful!

A wonderful stay in Fuengirola

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two months (February and March) in this very nice apartment located in the Torreblanca neighborhood of Fuengirola. No problem getting to the condo from Malaga airport situated 20 minutes away since the owner had sent us directions and a detailed map knowing that we had rented a car for the duration of our stay. All the planification and the details of the reservation were made in a very professional way, the owner responding almost immediately to our emails.

We were met by Paul, a friend of the owner, who gave us the keys and explained all the logistic concerning the apartment. Paul and his wife who live in the complex were happy to answer all our questions concerning the location of supermarkets and other shops, beaches and places to visit in the surroundings. A bottle of mousseux and a box of chocolates were waiting for us in the living room, a greatly appreciated gesture.

The description of the apartment that appears in the offer reflexes exactly what you will be the having if you rent this condo. It is very well equipped, clean as a whistle and the presence of the very large private terrace on the roof is a big plus. For those renting a car, the access to the interior garage and to the elevator bringing you directly in front of your apartment is also very appreciated.

The complex is situated 650 meters from the main road and the bus stop that will bring you in the center of Fuengirola or to surroundings cities; but, to get there you must walk down quite a steep hill. You will find a large supermarket at 2.5 km, the town center around 4km and the beach with the 8 km Paseo Maritimo at 900 meters. A car is not mandatory but recommended for farther visits or for everyday uses.

In resume, we strongly recommend this apartment for those who consider visiting Andalusia and in particular the Costa del Sol. Very interesting one day visits can be made from the condo to the beautiful white villages of Frigiliana, Mijas, Salobrena or Ronda. Also, Nerja and the Balcony of Europe, Marbella and its port, Benalmadena are a short distance from the appartment. The visit of the Alhambra of Granada could also be made in one day but you would need 2 or 3 days to visit Sevilla and its cathedral, the old section Santa Cruz and the many beautiful gardens (a must).

Many thanks to the owners who from the beginning of the process of the reservation to the end of our stay were always respectful and attentive.

Very Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have been to this apartment many times and had a lovely relaxing holiday. It is very spacious and the roof terrace is a huge plus as it means you can sunbath all day without leaving the apartment. The apartments themselves are on a hill but we dont mind the walk into the centre....even with a pushchair. If you prefer to catch a taxi back its roughly 6euros.

The apartment is very well equiped and is spotlessly clean. The only drawback for us this time is that we went early and the pool wasnt open, so I would check the pool opening times if you like to sunbath round the pool. We would highly recommend staying here. We look forward to returning next year :-)

Sunny week in February

  • 5 of 5

Lovely and very well equipped flat. We really enjoyed the balcony and sunny breakfasts.

Good views from the sun terrace due to the elevated position.

We were warned that it is a stiff climb to Monte Canada but once we sussed the routes it was fine with quiet roads. Very quick to the extensive and quiet beaches. Good bus and rail connections meant that public transport trips out were fairly easy.

I was with my teenage daughter and her friend. I was able to go out walking/cycling somedays while they went out on the train or to the beach, which worked out well.

Ken next door was very helpful too.

Thanks!

This sought after complex in the up market area of Torreblanca has a large number of excellent golf courses within the locality as well as plenty of opportunities for those who wish to go horse riding, fishing or sailing.

The award winning marina at Benalmadena is just one of the many attractions and only a short distance away as is the town centre of Fuengirola, both of which have a lively nightlife and excellent restaurants.

Location has easy access to Malaga airport, Sevilla, Granada & Cordoba by car, by bus or by train using the nearby rail link with its frequent services. A perfect base to explore the coast, sightsee, and enjoy your favourite sport or laze around our private rooftop terrace solarium, swimming pools or the local sandy beaches which are only a few minutes walk away.

Golf: several golf courses nearby, dozens in the region

Other Activities: lots and lots of different activities, even downhill skiing (2 hours drive to Sierra Nevada Resorts)
