2 bedroom, 2 bathroom luxury penthouse with 2 sun terraces and pool, sleeps 4
Designer furnished, tasteful and luxurious penthouse apartment set in colourful landscaped gardens with a large community pool in a quiet residential neighbourhood only 30 minutes by car from Malaga airport. Adjoining a conservation area of dunes, eucalyptus trees and pine woods bordering a long beach which is less than 5 minute walk over the unspoilt dune-land, filled with wild flowers in the spring. This property is a perfect romantic hideaway and a haven for peaceful relaxation with sea and mountain views.
The penthouse apartment is furnished to a high standard with marble floors throughout. Because of its proximity to the beach, there is often a pleasant breeze providing a light and airy feel. Air conditioning is provided with in-built heating for any cooler evenings out of season. There are two tranquil and private roof terraces enjoying excellent views and decked with pots full of colourful plants and climbers. The large terrace is totally private and with sun loungers is ideal for relaxing and sun bathing in total seclusion with the sound of birdsong from the adjoining eucalyptus trees. It is perfect for alfresco eating, barbequing and dining by candlelight under the stars. The smaller terrace off the main bedroom is perfectly positioned for sipping champagne whilst watching the sunset over the distant mountains.
Within walking distance in both directions there are a number of beach bars and restaurants. In one direction is the beach and pretty port of Cabopino with several restaurants and bars including Andy’s Bar. Nearby are other facilities including supermarkets, chemist, banks/ ATM and hotels….the famous Don Carlos is 5 minutes away by car. Marbella is a short drive away and there are many golf courses nearby and numerous other leisure activities. The property is a good touring base to explore this interesting and historic part of Spain (Malaga, Seville, Granada etc.) or for trips to the mountains, Gibraltar and North Africa.
More about the apartment: The apartment bedrooms are furnished with a double and twin beds with Memory Foam mattresses. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with over bath shower and the twin room is serviced by a shower room. All bed linen and bathroom towels are included; you will only need beach towels.
The living room area is spacious and comfortably furnished and incorporates a dining area….rarely used as life is lived out on the lovely terraces! There is TV, DVD/CD player and Wi-Fi and some books.
The kitchen is well equipped and includes oven, hob and microwave although the barbeque probably gets more use than the oven! There is a good size fridge and freezer so no need to be constantly shopping. To minimise packing there is a washing machine, clothes airer and lines (everything dries quickly on the terrace), iron and board.
There is a toy box on the terrace which is a children’s treasure trove of all sorts of things left by other little visitors!
Further location details: A very large choice of restaurants lie within driving distance as do the fashionable shops and malls of Marbella, some 15 minutes by car. For those seeking night life, plenty is available within Marbella and its surroundings. There are numerous golf courses in the area making this a golfers paradise and good skiing exists (in season) in the Sierra Nevada mountains near Granada, within 2 hours drive away. Gibraltar is easily accessible.
Transport etc.: It is advisable to hire a car if you wish to visit other areas.
Around August a number of families arrive for their summer holidays and everyone enjoys dining and drinking on their terraces, hence it may be less quiet in the evenings! Community rules ask people to respect their neighbours.

Semi-retired from the UK my family and I love to escape to the sun, a welcoming country with so many interesting places to visit, and somewhere for relaxation or adventure. If you like golf there are many courses nearby and even someone as bad as me can play without feeling under pressure.
Why John chose Marbella
The terraces are private and the spacious main terrace is perfect for quiet sunbathing and eating in the shade. The views are wonderful - trees, duneland, sea, distant mountains and sometimes the coast of Africa.
What makes this Apartment unique
The privacy of the property is very important to me as well as the pleasure of being up amongst the trees with all sorts of birds and yet close to the beach and restaurants.

So pleased you enjoyed your recent stay and thank you for your comments.
A very restful holiday in a superb location
Although we had plans to visit Gibraltar, Ronda and the old town in Marbella these had to be curtailed as I was recovering from a health issue that meant no driving or mid day sun for me. My wife drove for the first time on the Continent to get us from the airport to the apartment [and during our stay a 5 min drive to the supermarket] and hated it!! So we decided to drop our tourist plans and just enjoy the apartment and local area. This was a real blessing in disguise and we had one of our most restful holidays ever. The apartment is located a very enjoyable 10 min walk from the lovely sandy beach, at one end of which is the Restaurant Triana which had an excellent menu, very friendly staff and superb location as a result of which we visited several times. At the other end of the beach it is also about a 10 min walk to the marina where there are many other restaurants, nightlife and shops. The apartment gives access to an excellent swimming pool and gardens and they became a part of our daily enjoyment as well.
The apartment itself was perfect for us, plenty of room, air conditioning that worked and of course a huge veranda with beautiful plants, sun loungers and importantly a shaded area to sunbathe in safety. The apartment is a penthouse and as such there are several flights of stairs to climb. The effort is worth it as there are wonderful views in all directions. It is largely a residential area, very quiet and peaceful. I would thoroughly recommend the apartment and the area.
Thank you so much for your comments and I'm delighted that you enjoyed your holiday so much.
Lovely apartment in a wonderful location
We've just returned from our 10 night stay in this lovely apartment- we had a great time!
The welcome pack of goodies was very much appreciated after a long overnight journey.
The apartment had everything we needed including excellent Wifi, better than home! The roof terrace was just perfect, and the pool was great for cooling off and was pretty quiet all the time we were there.
Great location with a very quick walk to the beach, and the boardwalks around Cabopino make it really special.
Many thanks to John for his flexibility with our booking, and to the lovely lady who met us to show us the way to the apartment.
I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay - thank you for taking the time to write your comments and hope to see you back sometime. John
I had the most relaxing and enjoyable week in this beautiful and clean penthouse apartment.
The private terrace had a great view and comfortable sun loungers with a BBQ that we used daily.
Wifi, air con and a washing machine were all working well.
I wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting this area in the future.
Thank you Kenny, So glad you enjoyed and I appreciate you taking the time to write this review. John
Second stay at this apartment and it was just as great as the first time. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area!
So pleased that you enjoyed staying again, and thank you for taking the time to write your review.
