About Phil & Lynda Phillips

Phil and Lynda first visited Nerja on a family holiday in 1997. They fell in love with the town and have been enjoying holidays with their children and grandchildren at Tropicana since buying “Casa Lynda” in 2006. Now both retired they are able to spend time in their home-from-home two or three times a year. At home in Somerset Lynda is a leading light in the local WI and enjoys many different handicrafts, cookery and reading. She is currently learning flamenco dancing. Phil is a fair weather golfer, DIYer and self confessed “petrol head”. Despite many lessons and years of practice he is still struggling to play the Spanish guitar.

Phil & Lynda Phillips purchased this house in 2006

Why Phil & Lynda Phillips chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Nerja is situated at the easternmost end of the Costa del Sol, where the Almijara mountains meet the Alboran Sea. Although the town has grown in size over recent years it has kept much of its character, particularly the old part of town with narrow streets and traditional architecture. Tourism is important but Nerja is still a town where farming and fishing continue and are celebrated in the many Fiestas throughout the year. Apart from the obvious seaside attractions a trip to the fabulous Cuevas de Nerja is an absolute must for anyone visiting the town. The white villages of Frigiliana and Competa are a short drive away and are well worth a visit. The cities of Malaga, about 50 kms to the west, and Granada, about the same distance to the north east, offer lots of unique attractions.

What makes this house unique

Urbanizacion Tropicana is a small 1980s development built on a hillside on the eastern outskirts of Nerja. Its white painted houses and well tended gardens have a feeling of the “real” Andalucia. ClubTropicana bar/restaurant and the communal pool are welcoming places to relax, socialise or just soak up the sun. A29 “Casa Lynda” is our home-from-home and has everything we need for a comfortable holiday. The house is well equipped, light and airy with traditional pine furniture and Spanish feature tiling in the hall. The private rear garden and terraces are south facing and are ideal for sunbathing or enjoying the view of the countryside towards Nerja, the Almijara mountains, and glimpses of the Mediterranean. The nearest beach is a ten minute amble away and Nerja town centre is less than 2 kilometres away.

Really good accomodation with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here a lot as accommodation has all you need and not more. That was very important for us as junior kid (1.5 yrs old) attempts to turn/check/test everything, thus we could cause a damage very easy if we had excess decoration or other stuff like in previous place where we stayed. Landlord made efforts to make it safe - here you can find extinguisher and kitchen blanket. I do recommend this place for staying - it's safe and cozy!

A lovely charming house in a great spot

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here the garden faced the sun all day so you could sit in a private and quiet location.

The house had all you need for a stay and we did not find ourselves wishing it had more.

We recommend staying here and look forward to our next visit.

Locally there are 2 really good restaurants nearby the gastronomico (really great atmosphere and the steaks are delicious) and the Avalon (with great views)

We did not use the communal pool (as we like the beach and tend to explore) however the pool looked clean and maintained.

Excellant property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Casa Lynda. The house was ideal for us it had everything you need for a good holiday, very well maintained, spotlessly clean and really comfortable. The garden was great and the view from the first floor balcony was perfect especially in the evening. It was a lovely relaxed neighbourhood. The shared pool is a fantastic facility really quiet and friendly, only a few minutes walk away. The beach was also really handy.

Nerja is a lovely town with a great atmosphere. The walk along the beach was always interesting and the bus was handy too.

Phil and Lynda were really helpful before we travelled offering lots of help and very prompt in all their replies.

We would recommend Casa Lynda for a lovely relaxing holiday.

Very comfortable, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. The villa had everything that was needed. Clean and comfortable. We have been going to Tropicana for over twenty years, and have stayed in other villas, this one was one of our top ones. Would use it again.

Lovely well equipped house.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Casa Lynda in August. The house is very well situated for access to the shared pool and the complex itself is very well maintained. I would advise a car as there are plenty of local beaches and towns to visit. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The owners are very helpful.

Lovely town house ideally placed to explore the area

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely house, with short walk to nearest bus stop with a frequent, cheap and short trip into town centre. The walk into the town along the beaches is very pleasant. one can stop for a drink or bite to eat if needed at the various bars and restaurants on route. The property has all the amenities you need. a big plus is that the Tropicana pool and bar is only a few minutes walk away. The staff there are very friendly and helpful.
