About Lee McIver
I live with my wife and 2 kids in England. A few years back some friends of ours bought a property in this part of Spain and we would holiday with them. We feel in love with the place and wanted a place in the Sun, that we could call home. We have used the place at least once a year, more often twice per year. This year we decided to start to rent out the property. Hope you love the place as much as we do. If you have an questions, please dont hesitate to contact me. Happy holidays!
Why Lee McIver chose Albuñol
The property is located in the heart of Andalucia, it remains traditionally spanish and has not been ruined by commercialisation. Free tapas are served in the bars, when you purchase a drink. It is situated in the mountains, but is only a 10 mins drive to the nearest beach. The views are stunning, especially the sunsets, whilst sipping a gin and tonic relaxing on the balcony. You stare right at La Contraviesa mountain range and to the left is the beach resort of La Rabita. It has a swimming pool. with kids that's an essential!!
What makes this Apartment unique
It has a lovely swimming pool, where the kids spend most of their time!! There are lots of beaches along the coast to explore. It is based in a working town, so no matter when you go there is always life. We didnt want a property on a purpose built complex, as out of season, they are souless and like ghost towns. There lots to see and do: golf, go-karting, fishing, water parks, walking, cycling, wetern village and the more commercialised resort of Roquetas De Mar is only 45 mins drive away, if you want that. Over the years we have used as a base and explored many parts of Spain.

Excellent Spanish Apartment in Ideal Location
Had a fabulous stay in this lovely apartment. The apartment was extremely clean and had everything we needed. BBQs on the balcony having G&T watching the sun go down was our favourite time. The pool was clean and very refreshing in the hot sun. The location of the apartment was ideal to get to many local beaches most of had beach restaurants selling tapas and local brews. The local town was very friendly and had many bars which served drinks and free tapas. It is also in an excellent location for Malaga and Almeria airports. Well worth a visit.........
Zona bonita y tranquila. La casa está muy bien (si estuviera más limpia y cuidada sería excepcional)
Nos ha gustado muchísimo la casa (es y tiene todo según las fotos y la información dada por el propietario) pero, el acceso con coche es un poquito complicado, aunque se compensa con las vistas desde la terraza.
En mi opinión: debería estar un poquito más limpia y tener en la casa “accesorios” en perfecto estado (sino es así, mejor no tenerlos, da mala imagen).
Espero haber aportado algo a mejorar, porque es un lugar magnífico y una casa perfecta para descansar y si lo deseas poder desplazarte por la costa, sólo me queda recomendarlo (merece la pena visitar).
Muy equipado y limpio, ideal para 4,la cama hinchable pierde aire
Recomendable, vistas y piscina muy chulas el acceso un poco escabroso.
