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.

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.

Well equipped house in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely holiday at this property. It is clean, tidy and very well equipped for self catering. The information/directions provided were very helpful and easy to follow and the owners were more than happy to answer any questions we had. The property is set in a quiet area with a bar/restaurant only 2 minutes walk and a 10 minute walk to the beach and beach chiringuitos. The garden here even has its own lime tree - very handy for my G&T. We would be happy to stay here again.

Very enjoyable stay at this lovely apartment with very pleasant little garden. Access to pool very handy although pool size a little on the small side. Really helpful owner was most attentive and considerate throughout. Short walk to beach and manageable walk into town. Parking nearby and small shop a few minutes away. Apartment roomy and well equipped. Everything as described. Would love to go back.

Fabulous holiday home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you arrive you can see that Casa Lynda has been lovingly prepared and carefully equipped. The villa is sparkly clean and all the provided linen is fresh and fragrant. The bathrooms gleam and the porcelain is all immaculately white. Casa Lynda has been considerately prepared with a property book and yes even a cosy for the T pot. We highly recommend this little place if you are looking for a clean, tidy, plug and play holiday home that will make you smile the moment you open the door.
