About the property

3 bed Sea & Mountain VIew penthouse quietly located close to the beach

New to the rental market for 2017 !! A warm welcome to La Perla del Mar, our family run and personally maintained coastal penthouse, a stones throw from the unspoilt El Penoncillo beach, a superb home from home and the ideal place to enjoy a laid back Andalucian beach holiday whilst the more bustling neighbouring resort of Nerja is just a 5 minute drive away. Individually furnished, La Perla is the perfect place to unwind; relax overlooking the Med' on your own private wrap around terrace which has dining suite, Gas BBQ and 2 sunloungers, or spend time chilling at the pool where a lawned sunbathing area with tropical gardens also overlooks the sea. Penoncillo beach is just opposite at an approx 250m stroll away, where there are some superb beach chiringuitos/ restaurants serving BBQ'd fish and typical Andalucian dishes, fresh and reasonably priced. There is a local tapa bar and cafeteria and a few minutes further brings you to the promenade at Torrox costa itself with a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes and a beautiful blue flag beach.

There is a local bus service (bus stop nearby) there are also usually plenty of taxis...this is an ideal base for exploring further afield; the white villages of Frigiliana and Torrox pueblo, Nerja caves and Maro, Torre del Mar and Malaga, Granada, Ronda and Cordoba all within reach for the more adventurous!

Why Sue chose Torrox

We have always been drawn to this area and its unspoilt coastline, (reminds us of how things used to be 25 years ago before mass tourism)! its less busy than the neighbouring resort of Nerja, but you have the option to go there easily by bus, taxi or car - or even on foot if you like a good walk ..At Penoncillo there are some excellent value beach restaurants serving freshly prepared food and drinks at reasonable prices, there is a bus and taxi service and you can also walk along to the promenade at Torrox Costa, where there is a further range of shops bars and restaurants and a blue flag beach. Its just a nice friendly laid back place for recharging the batteries!

What makes this apartment unique

Lots of outside space; South facing for plenty of sunshine even in the Winter. Convenient for the beach and short distance to Nerja and the white villages of Frigiliana and Torrox pueblo. Car not necessary here. Perfect for coastal walks or just relaxing!

Wonderful hosts, Superb location. A real Pearl !

  • 5 of 5

We spent over 2 months at the Penthouse La Perla del Mar (February to April 2017). And without exaggeration, we can say that the penthouse is a pearl. The view is a force, the sea close to

grasping point. Sea view from the terrace, living room and even from the bed (main bedroom). The penthouse is well furnished, we did not miss anything. There is free WIFI and it was very quiet, at least in our travel period. You can reach the city center (Torrox Costa) also on foot (about 2.5 km.), With one car this is more flexible but there are local buses and taxis also.

The penthouse has a commanding view of the beach below... extending to the southern horizon of Costa del Sol. On a clear night one could marvel at the various heavenly constellations while lounging on the balcony.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay very much and we really recuperated. With this view and the nice weather the relaxation was very easy. We can thoroughly recommend La Perla del Mar. It was like you want a holiday to be !

To top it all, Sue & Trevor are such wonderful hosts who are always there and ready to help when needed, very nice and with a quick response to any questions always immediately helpful. Communication was excellent.

Muchas gracias Sue and Trevor!

Brigitte & Butch



Wir verbrachten über 2 Monate im Penthouse La Perla del Mar (26. Februar bis 30. April, 2017). Und ohne Übertreibung können wir sagen, dass das Penthouse eine Perle ist.

Die Aussicht ist eine Wucht, das Meer zum Greifen nahe. Meerblick von der Terrasse, Wohnzimmer und selbst vom Bett aus (Hauptschlafzimmer). Das Penthouse ist gut eingerichtet, uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Es gibt kostenloses WIFI und es war sehr ruhig, zumindest in unserer Reisezeit. Man kann die Innenstadt (Torrox Costa) auch zu Fuß erreichen (ca. 2,5 km.), mit einem Auto ist man jedoch viel flexibler.

Die Vermieter Sue & Trevor sind super Gastgeber, sehr nett und bei Fragen immer sofort hilfsbereit gewesen. Die Kommunikation war ausgezeichnet.

Alles in allem haben wir unseren Aufenhalt sehr genossen und uns super erholt. Mit dieser Aussicht und dem schönen Wetter fiel das Relaxen sehr leicht. Wir können La Perla del Mar nur empfehlen. Es war so wie man sich einen Urlaub wünscht.

Top class accommodation, home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks in June 2017, the photographs are very deceptive the apartment is much more spacious in reality. It would be perfect for for a party of 6 adults or less.The apartment was a home away from home it had everything that you could needs nothing was over looked. I could not recommend the accommodation enough and would definitely stay here again if travelling to this area. Sue was just a phone call away if there were any issues, she and her husband were very helpful as one of our party had an accident during our stay and they did all they could to assist us. Also great value compared to some of the accommodation in the area
