About Rod Owen

I live in Scotland with my wife. We use the apartment for much of the year - it is our second home - but we make the apartment available for friends and guests during the summer. We have made many friends in Spain and have really fallen in love with the country.

Rod Owen purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Rod Owen chose Elveria

We love Elviria because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches with a great range of bars and restaurants in the local village. There really is something for everyone here. The area is easily accessible with Malaga airport 45 minutes drive away.

Despite the current relatively strong Euro exchange rate to the UK Pound, there remains strong competition between restaurants and there are lots of very good and generally iinexpensive restaurants in the Elviria area and in Marbella.

You can get excellent Tapas and coffee in the village for £1.30 for each Tapas and £1.20 for a coffee.

Takeaways: BBQ Chicken £7.5 for a whole chicken for 4 people or Thai and Rice £7 pp (eat in or takeaway)

Dinner can cost as little as £20 pp for 2 good courses in a local Bistro.

There are several restaurants offering lunch deals for around £10 pp.

Some of the beach restaurants will provide fish and salad and a beer for under £10.

And of course if you are looking for an excellent dinner with wine and music it will be more expensive, but there are some good restaurants close by.

I am certainly happy to share some of our local picks with you or I suggest you check-out TripAdvisor for current information.

What makes this apartment unique

Duplex penthouse with great views over the valley to the Mediterranean and Gibraltar in the distance. It is in a quiet area with plenty to see and do less than a mile away. Golf, Beach, Great Restaurants and Bars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous week in Elvira. The apartment was beautiful and exceeded all expectations. Wonderful views from the terrace and great restaurants to be had just a short drive away. Will definitely be coming back. Once again many thanks for all your help.

Top class apartment, highly recommended for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 week stay in this lovely apartment, everything was exactly as described, providing every possible comfort to make our stay relaxing and stress free. The accommodation is clean, modern and well furnished with comfortable beds, and although we don't go on holiday to watch TV, we enjoyed having the option to watch the Sky Sports channels to keep up with the golf and cricket. We spent lots of time soaking up the sun on the large private balconies, which are nicely furnished and provide optional shade along with good open views down to the coast. The owner Rod provided lots of helpful advice and information, and we received a lovely welcome on our arrival and were well looked after during our stay, we didn't have any problems but we know that help was on hand if required. The location itself is ideal if you like to be close to the local amenities, but in a peaceful relaxing environment. Elveria itself offers lots of lovely restaurants, bars and cafes to suit all tastes and budgets, also supermarkets, cash points, and some lovely small independent shops, it's also an ideal central location with a short drive to the many other lovely locations such as La Cala and Cabopino in one direction or Marbella in the other, and is convenient for lots of golf courses. We'd definitely recommend this apartment, and hope that we'll be able to make a return trip.

Lovely apartment!

  • 4 of 5

A lovely, very well equipped, clean and comfortable apartment and one I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. It is in a very peaceful setting and for us the only minor downside is that the location is a bit far out although for those who hire a car or are perhaps a bit younger(!) this wouldn't be a problem. We walked into Elviria most days but in very hot weather it took us around 25 minutes at a leisurely pace. We didn't even attempt to walk back because of the heat and the very steep roads. We used taxis which are always available on the square and depending on the time of day and the route taken only charge 6-8 euros.

Overall we enjoyed a very relaxing break.

Peaceful and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay in Rod's apartment. Fully equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. We enjoyed sitting out on the large terrace and the electric awning was very useful to provide shade as it was very very hot the 9 days we stayed there. The apartment grounds are very well kept and the pool area was never busy which we liked as it was nice and peaceful. May I also thank Coral, the agent who met us at the apartment and was on hand for any questions or queries during our stay. Highly recommended.

The best beaches on the Costa del Sol are genuinely less than 5 minutes drive away, with miles of sand and gentle warm bathing. These offer excellent beach bars, chiringuitos, sunbeds, up-market beach clubs including the renowned jet set destination of Nikki Beach, as well as more secluded areas. The yacht harbour of Cabopino is also nearby.


Malaga airport is 45 minutes (40km) away. Car hire is recommended but not at all necessary.


Elviria shops, bars & restaurants are 1.6km away and the nearest beach 2.4km.

The apartment is well situated to explore white villages of Andalucia and the famous historic town of Ronda, perched on a high plateau (2500 ft above sea level), all are within easy driving distance. Seville, Granada and Gibraltar can each be reached within 2/3 hours. In addition other popular locations such as Puerto Banus, Benahavis and Mijas are a short drive away.

Further Details:

As well as the picturesque fishing and yachting marina of Cabopino close by with many bars & cafes, there is an abundance of excellent, fish and meat restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. It is a 15 minute or so pleasant downhill walk from the gate to the shops and 15 or so great bars and restaurants of Elviria. If you prefer, the journey back can be undertaken by readily available and inexpensive taxis. The Marbella area has world class facilities, restaurants, shops, nightlife, fitness, sports, health and beauty clubs plus more than 20 quality golf courses. Attractions for families and thrillseekers include parasailing, Tivoli World, Aquapark, Natura Aventura, Buggy Safaris, Zoo and Funny Beach. Malaga itself offers walking tours, galleries and the renowned Museo Picasso. In addition whilst the apartment is well situated for many popular locations, it sits amongst low-rise residential villas and offers quiet walks and peaceful tranquillity. Please email with any questions and we will try and give you the information you seek.
