About the property

Garden Apartment near Burriana Beach, Nerja, Costa del Sol - Idyllic Setting With Elevated Views Of The Mediterranean, Just Minutes From Burriana Beach

Imagine a long sloping valley, inclined towards the south and looking out over the blue mediterranean. At the crown are the majestic peaks of the sierra almijara and sierra nevada mountains. The overall feeling is of harmony, with green valleys, rugged mountains and white-washed moorish style villas. Located just above the Burriana Beach and a 10 - 12 minute walk to the centre of Nerja. This is the peaceful haven we have chosen to locate The Garden Apartment.

**The tropical garden and well maintained pool are not shared - they are for the exclusive use of guests at The Garden Apartment

Broadband Internet WIFI (P.A.Y.G.) throughout apartment.

The apartment is located in a quiet residential road where parking is free, unrestricted and usually in plentiful supply. Most guests manage to park immediately outside the gate or within a few metres of it.

If you chose not to rent a car, we can arrange for a Nerja taxi to collect you from Malaga Airport and take you back at the end of your stay. The driver would have the keys from us in advance and would take you directly there without the need to worry about collecting the keys on the way in. For the return, you would simply hand the keys to the driver and he would return them to us. The regulated fare is currently 69 Euros per trip, payable directly to the driver, which is less than the Malaga taxis charge from the airport rank.

Our check-in time is approximately 1:30 PM and check-out is 10:30 AM to provide time to our maids to prepare the apartment for the next guests' arrival, usually the same day. If you have a late flight, there is usually somewhere we can suggest to store your luggage on that last day if we have new guests arriving. If we don't, then, you are welcome to stay as long as you need on the last day.

We are back in Norway after 3 wonderful weeks in Nerja. The city with its surroundings was magnificent, and we really loved the apartment. As I said, - it felt in a way very private. We will soon come back with our reservation for the next year, in the Garden Apartment. Best regards, Anders.

Thanks for your kind attentions. We had a terrific week in the Garden Apartment in Nerja. Our sixteen month old son had a whale of a time. We'd like to go back next spring, so we'll be in touch again. Thanks again. Stephen, Marcia and Gabriel.

The apartment was one of the best places we rent in Spain.We liked it very much, the terrace,garden,pool and all. The distance to beach and town

were perfect. We want to rent the garden apartment next year. Kind regards Lars-Ove and Meril.

We had a fantastic week in Nerja - simply bliss! The villa was very well equipped. We particularly loved the garden and the privacy. Would definitely stay again. Many thanks, Eirwen and Scott.

Just wanted to say we had a great stay in Nerja!

It will be more visits in the future! Lasse. July 2014.

Thank you so much for a wonderful holiday in your fabulous apartment. The garden and pool were superb. We loved it. It's the first time we've had a pool all to ourselves. I'm sure we will be back in future years.

Thank you once again, we were very impressed with the whole organisation.

Kind regards Elaine. August 2014

Just a quick note to say many thanks again for your great help and particularly the additional insider's tips about Nerja and environs. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay --lovely apartment--and hope to return one day.

Perfectly Peaceful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Garden Apartment and we enjoyed it even more than the first. The apartment offers privacy, is bright, clean and very well equipped. The garden is delightful and having the use of the lovely pool is icing on the cake. It is within easy walking distance to Burriana beach, the centre of Nerja and is close to large supermarkets. The apartment's location is also suitable for accessing interesting walks in the area such as the 'Rio Chillar'. The English owner is very helpful and friendly and pleased to suggest places of interest. The availability on the Inter-Sol website is always up to date and enquiries are answered promptly. We are definitely returning.

Owner's Response: Much goes into making The Garden Apartment a "special" place to stay and enjoy the delights of Nerja, so it's always rewarding to hear that has been recognised and appreciated. The garden and pool truly are private and exclusive to guests at The Garden Apartment, not shared with anyone else and this is the only apartment we know of in Nerja with such an amenity! In addition to other agency websites, our own availability calendar is kept up to date here on the Owners Direct website. Having been successfully renting The Garden Apartment for more than 26 years now, we do try to meet the needs of our guests and, yes, respond promptly to all questions and requests. So, thank you for giving The Garden Apartment such a glowing review!

Beautiful...and our own pool...loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent ten days at The Garden Apartment this July and had a fantastic time...just loved it! The apartment has all you could need for a self catering holiday plus a fab pool all to yourself, beautiful garden and a very spacious terrace on both sides with lovely views. For us it was perfectly located being a short walk to the local supermarket, Burrianna Beach and Nerja town centre. Leisurely breakfast on the terrace each morning looking down towards the beach was so relaxing. We also enjoyed having a barbecue on a few evenings...other nights we would sit with a nice glass of chilled wine before heading into Nerja centre to visit some of the fab bars and restaurants the town has to offer...Nerja is beautiful. We had a wonderful holiday and found the apartment much more relaxing than staying in a hotel...we will definitely choose here again on our next visit to Nerja. Oh, think it's also worth mentioning that we booked our taxi driver (who also passes you the keys to the apartment) through the owner and the service was perfect...would recommend.

Peaceful home from home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment feels secluded and calm, even though it is only a short walk from Burrianna beach. Ideal for a middle aged couple, like ourselves. I loved the private pool and the view towards the sea in the distance. Booking a taxi through the owner was very well organised.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! Our guests have been enjoying the tranquility of The Garden Apartment for many years now, some returning time and time again. There IS a special atmosphere there, a feeling of peace and harmony. It still remains the only apartment in Nerja overlooking it's own private and exclusive pool and garden. Yet, as you say, all the amenieties of The Burriana Beach, voted one of the best beaches on the Costa del Sol, are only a short walk away!

Late May Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Garden Apartment for a lazy week away from the rat race. The peace and tranquility were the first things I noticed along with the cool deep pool. The apartments location is close enough to Burriana Beach to make it accessible on foot but remote enough to remove you from the world at large.

I wont recommend restaurants etc as this is subjective except 34 which the owner thoughtfully provided a discount voucher (which I thoughtfully forgot) All in all a fabulous week and one I shall definately be revisiting..Thanks to all involved in getting us there which was completely hassle free.

A perfect summer break

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Garden Apartment for two consecutive years and definitely will be returning.

From booking to departure the helpfulness of Nick was outstanding. Eating breakfast on the terrace in the early morning sun, relaxing in the private pool and beautiful views to the sea just make a fantastic holiday. A short walk to the beach, and close to the typically Spanish town of Nerja to people watch and have a drink just makes it perfect in every way.

Its a quiet , quaint and addictive area of Spain that we have fallen in love with.

I recommend this little Garden Apartment if you are looking for a sunny getaway with peace and quiet yet just enough bars and restaurants to have a typical Spanish evening
