My family including Grandparents stayed here for a week in August. Before our arrival contact with the owners was excellent and Marion provided us with lots of tips for eating out, days out and the different routes to the beach, town and supermarket. She also arranged our airport transfer which was a great help (200 euros return for 7 people). On arrival we was met by both Marion and Felipe, who were very welcoming. There had been some problems with another of their properties and therefore Marion had been unable to get the shopping in that we had requested (at her suggestion!), this was a pain as after travelling with young children they were hungry! She was apologetic about this.
The Villa itself was spacious enough for us all. Here is a bit of info about each floor.
First floor main living area, this is were you enter the property.
Kitchen - spacious, well equipped, no large glasses!
Open plan lounge - comfy settees, RUBBISH wifi, balcony (we used this a lot!) good sized table, air con.
Downstairs one flight:
3 good sized bedrooms, only the main bedroom has air con. Lots of electric fans for the other rooms which we needed to use as it was very hot!
Family bathroom - needs an update it looked a bit grubby in places, very stuffy in here, electrics to shaving light were dodgy, held with a peg!
Large terrace - The only access to the terrace is through the bedrooms. There are sunbeds and a large table out here. The small pool was used by us a lot however I would point out that it is VERY deep. We are a very tall family and none of us could touch the bottom, approx 6ft 3ins deep. A problem when our boys who are learning to swim were grabbing us to keep themselves up and we were going under!
Downstairs again ground floor:
Double bedroom - this is an internal bedroom and therefore no windows = very hot! We used this room and my mother said it was also very noisy (cars and grates!) as it is on the road level.
Bathroom - better than upstairs.
Twin bedroom - not a nice room wouldn't have wanted my children to sleep in here and again no windows. We didn't use it as we had enough rooms upstairs thankfully.
Garage - very large. We found a buggy in here which we used for our 4 year old.
As the villa is on 3 floors there are a lot of stairs. 2 of the grandparents found this a bit hard going. In terms of children though there are stair gates at the top of both sets of stairs.
Our overall feeling of the villa was it needed a little TLC but this didn't stop us having a fab holiday!
An easy walk downhill to the beach (5 minutes) However it is VERY steep so the walk back is more difficult. There is a bus every hour and taxis but be aware they wont take you if you are wet from the beach.
A 20 minute walk to town on the roads or shorter along the beach but you will have a lot of steps to climb up into town.
One more thing to note, as I wasn't aware of this. You have to pay for the electricity. Ours came to 50 euros. We didn't have the air con on every day but used the fans a lot. I think this is a bit steep on top of the rental cost.
In summary we had a brilliant week here. …
Hawaii 28D Burriana beach - close to town centre
Relaxing 3 weeks in the sun
My family and I had a lovely 3 week stay at Hawaii apartments in Nerja, Costa del
Sol. Communications with the owner prior to our stay were helpful and friendly. They met us on arrival and told us about the resort, giving recommendations and useful advice. The accommodation suited us perfectly and the kids loved being in the pool. Other residents/guests at the Hawaii apartment complex were very friendly too. The apartment is up quite a steep bank which might not be ideal for some people. However, it meant that there are fabulous views from the balcony. We will definitely return in the future. …
Frontline Burriana Beach Nerja
We spent there fantastic time
Our stay in this apartment I recommend to all of you. Apartment is very nice. We stayed there 12 days. There is everything you need... and terrace is fantastic. Location has also 100%. Burriana beach was a great choice. Very nice beach, clean, but during the August little bit crowded. Restaurants all around was fantastic, especially paella, fresh fish.... …
Andaluz Apartments - BUR01 - communal pool - Wifi - air con - parking - 4 sleeps
It would have been perfect only for that hill.
The apartment was perfectly clean and well equipped and Monique was ever so helpful. The only drawback was the location - the hill was a killer. Burriiano Beach is beautiful as is the town of Nerja plenty of nice restaurants and Tapas Bars. A visit to the nearby caves and a guided kayak ride around the coast is a must. …
