This nice top-floor apartment is located by the sea in the heart of La Carihuela village, an interesting former fishermen neighborhood, 25 minutes away from Malaga Historic Center. It has sea views and many services just downstairs.

The space

It has 2 bedrooms, a chill out area with another double bed, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, salon and a nice terrace.
The 30 years old building has swimming/pools and gardens.
The house furniture are a mix of different styles and ages. Kitchen furniture, sofa and some other items might be a bit old, but general comfort of the house is acceptable.
It has no air/condition, but it has ceilings mounted funs, and being so close to the beach, and with windows in both sides of the building, should make your stay nice and healthy.

Bed for bedroom #1 is 2.00 X 1.50 meters. Bedroom #2 has a 2.00 x 1.40 meter bed, and Chill-out bed is 1.90 X 150 meters.
First bedroom has private bathroom, and another bathroom outside for the use of the second bedroom plus the possible chill/out bed guests.

Guest access

Fully equiped apartment with kitchen, beds sheets, swimming-pool in summer time, WIFI, sea-views, back terrace, etc

Interaction with guests

The apartment is available for your only use; I live nearby, so anything that you might need, just need to send me a message.

On your check-out, you can just leave the keys inside and pull the door. Please let me know at what time would it better for you to check-out, and I will do my best to arrange it.

Rafa is a charming man and made us very welcome. He showed us around the apartment and pointed out how everything worked. We have been to La Carihuela many times before but he gave us fresh insights into where to eat and what to do. Any questions we had he answered fully. All in all a wonderful host.

A great welcome from Rafas father after we were delayed by almost 2 hours. The views from the apartment are excellent and the spacious accommodation is very light. We were disappointed with the cleanliness, obviously no one had cleaned the floor or other surfaces. The fixtures and fittings are very old and in the case of the patio chairs broken with only 2 being usable. A great location and despite the issues this is a great apartment. Badly needs a refurb but that said we would still consider staying here again providing Rafa attends to a few things.
