Apartment in Competa, Costa del Sol - Peaceful Location with Stunning Sea Views
- english, spanish
Alick & Debbie moved to this beautiful region of southern Spain in 2005 to start a new life in the Andalusian sunshine. Both had worked in the Greater London area for all their working lives prior to emigrating and were looking for a more relaxed lifestyle. Alick originally worked as a police officer in the Metropolitan Police and served for 5 years before moving into the financial services industry where he worked for 15 years prior to moving to Spain. Debbie had also worked in the financial services industry but latterly had a senior position working in the pharmaceutical industry. As well as letting out their apartment for holidaymakers they have a retail business in Competa and also run a property management business for owners of holiday rental properties. Recently, they have also become involved in a real estate business with a friend and colleague. They reside here with their two golden cocker spaniels, Timi & Maddie, who have become an attraction for many guests due to their friendly nature.
Alick purchased this Apartment in 2004

What a view! Stunning, just stunning. The apartment has everything you need including a rather nice view!
we were met by Alick upon arrival, who quickly settled us in with ease and we were introduced to 2 friendly spaniels who are absolutely no bother at all.
The pool was clean, tidy and was well maintained, along with the apartment and grounds.
Competa itself is amazingly beautiful, clean and friendly.
The holiday was perfect for us to relax, unwind and recharge. There are plenty of places to visit nearby, Torrox, Nerja, Malaga etc but we found it so hard to tear ourselves away from the pool and THAT view!
In conclusion, Alick and Debbie were the perfect hosts, the accomodation was spot on, location is amazing and we will be returning!
oh, and did we mention the view?
Many thanks to Alick and Debbie ,

Great location, stunning views.
Alick & Debbie were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The property was perfect for our needs and very comfortable. We had a great time and would not hesitate to book again.
Lovely property in a great location with fabulous mountain views. Wonderful pool. Perfect holiday for us.
Everything we hoped for and more.
Casa Rey was just what we needed! It’s a very peaceful setting with amazing views. The apartment was clean and well kitted out. Debbie and Alick were perfect hosts, we found it hard to drag and ourselves away from the pool!
The journey into Competa can be done by foot or car, where there are plenty of places to eat/drink, stock up on supplies and lots to see.
Also in the town is a 25m municipal pool, with views across the mountains, not to be missed if you are a keen swimmer.
A wonderful break, thank you Debbie and Alick (Maddie & Timmy!)
Lovely setting, very comfortable accommodation and excellent hosts
This studio apartment was well equipped, comfortable bed! and a superb view from the outside space. We really enjoyed our stay. Timmy & Maddy (the dogs) are adorable but not there if you don’t want them to be. Likewise the hosts 😉A word of warning, the journey from the A7 is for experienced drivers only
Fantastic mountain retreat
Casa Rey is just the spot to enjoy a peaceful relaxing break in a gorgeous setting with amazing views. The apartment is clean and very well equipped and to be able to use the owners' private pool and sunbeds is a bonus. The owners are lovely, there should you need them but not intrusive. All in all, a fabulous place.
