The best about this appartment is definatelly its view over the sea all the way to the horizon. The view is just stunning! And the owners have left binoculars, so guests can spy on the birds and boats. Apart from the view, there is everything you need in the appartment and the beds are very comfi (at least the one in the bedroom with the view, which we used).
Also the location of the appartment is quite convenient. We did not hire a car, so we were glad we had the train station of Torremuelle just around the corner. Note: the right train station is Torremuelle, not Benalmadena/Arroyo de miel. We got out at Benalmadena when arriving and got terribly lost, before finally taking a taxi, which cost us 12 Euros. There is also a small British supermarket nearby, but it is expensive and not very good. So we just bought water there and everything else at Mercadona, the Spanish supermarket with a great selection, though about 30 min walk from the appartment.
When renting the appartment, please be aware of the following downsides:
- in Winter, it can get quite cold i Spain, too, and there are only two small electric heaters in the appartment. That is certainly better than no heating at all, but it is practically impossible to properly warm up the apartment, as the windows are not tight at all. So take warm clothes, slippers (the floor is very cold), maybe an extra blanket.
- it is lovely to have the sea so close, but it is also very noisy. If you have trouble sleeping with the noise of the waves all night, take along earplugs.
- be prepared that the appartment, although nice and neat at first sight, is not really clean when it comes to bathroom shelves, cupboards and kitchen equipment. So you might have to do a bit of cleaning, or complain, if that bothers you.
- I can imagine that it might become quite hot in the appartment in summer, and I could not spot any air condtioning. Maybe I just could not find it, but without air conditioning and all the windows, the sun probably heats up the appartment a lot. So if you like it hot, it is perfect. If not, do not go there in summer! Spring is probably the best time. We were there in March and we had very pleasant temperatures. We had lots of rain and some cold nights, but it was 15-18 C during the day, so we could go for walks and enjoy all the flowers and green!
