About the property

Apartment, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This wonderful vacation home has a spectacular panoramic view of the sea, and miles of dramatic mountainous coastline. Overlooking Nerja's popular Burriana beach, this is a one of a kind facility. The apartment's architect/owner renovated 2 adjacent apartments into one to create a generous penthouse facility intended mainly for his family's personal use, and is furnished as such.

Sea-facing rooms have wall to wall glass. A large modern kitchen is fully-equipped, complete with granite countertops. The extensive outdoor patio/terrace as well as a separate private, furnished roof deck, let you enjoy the Mediterranean ambiance from sun loungers, or while dining under the stars. The building's communal garden has a newly refurbished swimming pool open all year round.

THE PLACE: Perfect for someone looking for 'that special vacation,' this third floor walk-up is in a quiet residential part of Nerja, with the town square a short 6 minute walk away, down a classic Andalucian street. No car needed. It has 2 separate lounge areas (both sea-facing); an ample supply of books, audio tapes, etc. as well as many amenities for children (videos, toys, games, books, high chair etc.) Access to the building's newly renovated swimming pool in the garden overlooking the beach and the sea coast.

THE TOWN: While Nerja has a considerable tourist population, it's a world away from the high-rise vacation development elsewhere on the coast. The original Andalucian town retains its traditional character. Fishermen still bring in their morning catch down on the beach, and peddle the fish on the street corner.

LOTS TO DO: The Nerja Caves (Spain's second most visited tourist monument) are the town's most internationally-known attraction, but the location caters to other interests. Wander the typical streets, browse the Tuesday street market, pick up some Spanish at a local language school, time your stay for colourful local fiestas, or visit the Moorish fortifications at nearby Almunecar and Salobrena. The world famous 'Alhambra' palace in Granada is a scenic 1 1/2 hour's drive away. Day trips to the nearby Moorish 'White Villages', or jeep adventure tours into the national park in the Alpuharras region are readily available. Gibraltar, Morocco, Cordoba, and Seville (260 km) are all within a rental car's reach, or by local bus tour. (Tour bus pick-up is just a block away from the apartment.)

FOR THE ACTIVE VACATIONER: there are beach activities, or head inland. Rent a mountain bike, a motor scooter, or hike the walking paths in the mountains surrounding the town(published guide books are available locally). Tired yet? Time to wind down over wine and an evening meal, at any of a number of great restaurants, both at the beach and in town.

WHAT PAST CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY: 'What can I say? Your apartment was just stunning and even better than we were hoping for.' (Stephenie H.) 'We all had a lovely holiday. The apartment was everything you promised it would be, we could not have asked for better accommodation. The toys and videos were a huge help.' {Lynne I.) 'It is a beautiful location, great views, well kept pool and quiet as well, with nice families staying there.'(Susan W.) 'We had a wonderful time in Nerja enjoying especially the view and location...Our stay in Nerja was the highlight of the trip.' (Rose d.G.) 'We had a farewell party on your roof. It was just grand...Thank you for a lovely stay in Nerja.' (Alberto R.) 'We would certainly recommend the apartment and would like to return one day.' (Alyson W.)

About Tim Tory and Nora Tory-Pratt

We are a Canadian couple with a passion for living in Andalucia. Tim is a retired architect and Nora is a documentary producer. Our Nerja penthouse has been an adventure for the entire family. Our 2 boys split their education between their Canadian school and the local school in Nerja, and ended up being far more fluent in Spanish than their parents. What we love about Nerja is that although Spain has experienced huge growth in tourism, the Andalucian town of Nerja remains intact, a welcome relief along the coast. And after all these years, we still find the panoramic exposure over the Mediterranean breath-taking.

Tim Tory and Nora Tory-Pratt purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Tim Tory and Nora Tory-Pratt chose Axarquia (Costa del Sol)

Tim had a history and affection for the Spanish coast dating back to the late 1960's. After touring up and down the coast from Valencia past Marbella to Estepona at the west end of the Costa del Sol over many years of visits, he found this special place in a pretty little coastal town where a car is an option but by no means a necessity. And where the local butcher recognizes you when you arrive to buy your meat. Our kids love the hiking in the surrounding countryside. And the fact that in winter, you can be up on the ski slopes of the Sierra Nevadas in less than 2 hours.

What makes this apartment unique

Make no mistake. This is a family home, not a holiday retreat. Clients frequently comment that the spaces are generous beyond what the photographs suggest. For 18 Renter reviews (all 5 star) visit our homepage AT LINK:

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday at Tuhillo 3 L was great! The apartment is spacious with stunning views and perfect surroundings! So close to everything and yet nice and quiet.

All of us (mom, dad, 3 sons and 2 girlfriends) enjoyed every moment!

I spent a wonderful two weeks here celebrating a big birthday with three friends. We had lots of space, much more than you usually get with these rentals. We each had our own comfy bedroom and it was easy to share the two bathrooms. We love to cook, so it was great to find a modern, well equipped kitchen. The weather was fab, and we spent most of our time on the big terrace looking out at the sea or up on the roof for an evening bbq. (When we weren’t in the pool or down at the beach eating paella!) The nice thing about Nerja is that it’s a real place and not just a tourist trap. We spent lot of evenings strolling around town, stopping for tapas (and drinks!) along the way.

We found the whole Tuhillo complex very well maintained, and the penthouse squeaky clean. And it was a real bonus to deal with people as pleasant as Tim and Nora. They really did their very best to accomodate our every wish or need.

Nerja Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Your penthouse in Nerja is stunning. We loved

the space, the fact that the bedrooms were separated from the living

space, and the two patios, both of which we enjoyed often. We loved the

pool, and the nearness to the beach and the town without being in the

depths of it. Every evening we went exploring for a different place to

dine, the weather was fantastic. Having the transportation arranged for

us was a real bonus too, and one less thing to worry about.

All in all, our stay was fantastic and your accommodation was the

perfect fit for us with our two adult daughters. I'm so glad that we

chose your penthouse and that everything worked in our favour.

Such a lovely place you have there. Thanks again,

3L Tuhillo

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this fabulous apartment and the friendly treatment we got in contact with the host.

The apartment is bright, spacious and practical furnished. It suited us perfectly. We enjoyed the nice patio and the roof terrace. We appreciated that it was clean and well maintained.

The common pool area was quiet and although it was well managed.

The apartment is centrally located but in a quiet area, with direct access to the sea and walking distance to downtown.

We would gladly return.
