“Beautiful apartment in a great location.” The apartment is equipped to a high standard, clean,bright, airy and very spacious. Large balcony with views to sea and mountains, we loved it. Best apartment we have stayed in - we hope to be back next year!
“Apartment in Sol Timor GREAT SEA VIEW” I had a nice week in Keith's apartment in the hotel Sol Timor. The sea view was great. The apartment was nice and clean and had everything I needed. The apartment is in a great central location.
I went to Pub Carlos every night and made it my local for the week. Also enjoyed the food at the Carvery and the Spanish Garden restaurant Which are across the road from the hotel
I would recommend this Beach Front Studio Apartment.

Thank you for your review. It is always very helpful when clients take the time to leave details of their holiday on Trip Advisor like this. I have spoken to the hotel manager about the slight hickup at reception which I understand was resolved after just a few minutes. It seems that the new receptionist was not aware that the keys for private owners are kept separately to the keys for the studios owned by the hotel. This ensures that my studios cannot be used by the hotel without my knowledge, and the system works well. The handle to the bathroom has been changed to ensure that guests cannot inadvertently lock the door now! I am pleased you enjoyed your holiday and look forward to seeing you again this year. Keith Simpson.

“Home from Home” Great apartment, well kept communal pools and gardens, right on the beach. We stayed for ten nights and ate in a different restaurant every night around the marina. Everything we needed for a restful holiday was there in the apartment or within a 10 minute walk. This was our fourth visit to Duquesa and we will be back next year.
The apartment was really good and in a fantastic location. There is a lovely balcony overlooking the gardens and pools with direct access to a wonderful beach. Just a few minutes walk from the main p… More

“Blissful retreat in Andalucian village of Gaucin” Casa Muneca is a place that you will find it difficult to leave, and one to which you will no doubt want to return to time after time. A delightful welcome from key holder Agusutina who keeps the place spotlessly clean and tidy and who lives close by if you should need help or advice (her English is rather limited, however with smiles and gestures much can be communicated and she loves to hear faltering attempts at Spanish) The house is comfortable & homely, elegantly furnished with many interesting little touches that blend well both old and modern styles of Andalucia, it is well equipped with all that you need for self-catering. We did not need to use the fire as the weather was warm in the evenings, but one can imagine how cosy this would be later in the year or on one of the rare rainy days.
Most of our time (including breakfasts) was spent on the spacious veranda that looks out across the village rooftops to the mountains beyond. The views are absolutely stunning; on a clear day one can see the rock of Gibraltar and the distant coast of Africa. From here you can watch Eagles soaring overhead in the clear morning light, spend a pleasant siesta sunbathing or sheltering in the shade, in the evening relax with a glass of wine and enjoy the most wonderful sunsets imaginable, and at night time sit quietly watching the moon rise in the star studded sky.
Gaucin itself is such an interesting and friendly village, quite a maze of little streets many of which are steep to climb. It has a great and varied selection of good eating houses/bars, cafes and art/craft gift shops (all within relatively easy walking distance if you are OK with steep streets). There are a couple of Supermarkets for general supplies, although we preferred to shop at the (friendlier) smaller shops to support local trade. There is also a Wholefood shop/Internet cafe at the bottom of the village. It is an artists and writers paradise, a place that leaves one feeling inspired.
Gaucin is a fantastic base to explore from; surrounded by stunningly beautiful little white villages tucked away in the mountains, and of course not too far from Ronda which is a real cultural must see/visit. A trip down to the coast is also a nice day out, much of it is rather built up and touristy however there are some smaller places that are still wonderful if you are lucky enough to come across them. All in all Casa Muneca and its location are just perfect for an Andalusian adventure and/or just as a retreat to relax and recuperate from life.
“All the comforts of home while you relax in the sun.” We found this apartment spacious,well equipped and comfortable with superb views and lots of outside space to enjoy the sun. It is a short walk to the beach where we enjoyed swimming.There is also a lovely swimming pool within the apartment complex.
“Great stay in family friendly villa” The villa is extremely comfortable and spacious. Very well laid out to accommodate up to 10 people sharing.
The gardens and pool are particularly well designed with lots of room for sun beds in the gardens beside the pool and graduated steps for easy access to the pool.
Beautiful shady terrace with dining table and couches leading out directly from spacious sitting room
The hosts Jo and Mike were exceptionally friendly and warm.
We had a fabulous week here and would definitely love to return another time.
“A taste of Luxury” This was our third trip to Nerja and this stay was definitely the top time we have had. Helen and Keith had done a fantastic job prior to our stay explaining where we should go and sending out maps and information packs on Nerja. The location was fantastic with amazing see views and some cracking atmosphere below in the square.
The apartment itself was fantastic, we have stayed in a number of places during the years and this was definitely the most modern and well furnished we have ever stayed in. Clearly time has been taken to keep it's Spanish routes with a touch of British class about it. I would definitely reccommend coming here to friends. The four of us had a fantastic time, thanks so much Helen and Keith.
“Definitely recommend” Hi, wonderful stay at Villa Maxine with my family and brothers. Plenty of room for 10 of us over the Villa itself but of course we enjoyed the pool and outside as much. Close to the coast and situated for easy commute to Marbella and Malaga.

“"Enchanting and wonderful TOP APARTMENT"” Only footsteps away from the sea - amazing! Wonderful apartment, clean, enchanting and everything you need is there. The surroundings are first class. Great kitchen. Everthings fits perfect for us. We`ll be back next year.
“Restful holiday, close to beaches and nightlife” Only 30 minutes from Malaga airport. Lift for easy access. Lovely furnished apartment with all mod cons. Sunny balcony all day with distant sea view. Comfortable bed! Convenient for beaches, local shops and restaurants - some within walking distance. Have stayed in this apartment twice and look forward to going back again.
Recently returned from a wonderful eight day break in this lovely apartment, to say we wanted more days there is an understatement.
Spacious and modern with everything we could possibly need.

“Live it!” Having stayed in the area twice with my family and three times on a girlie weekend, this villa is our favourite. The area that the villa is in is so pretty. The villa over looks the pool and has a large terrace for alfresco dining. The beds are comfortable and everything is spotlessly clean. There is a short stroll to the beach which has everything you could possibly want; great bars, dining, sports etc. Town again is a walkable distance and has great restaurants and bars. Love it so much that we've already booked again for next year!
“Excellent - just as advertised” I have just returned from this apartment where I spent a week with my sister. It was perfect for us and the location is excellent with restaurants very nearby, but also wiithin easy access to the centre and Balcon.

“Brilliant apt” Stayed here last wk with my wife & daughter apt spotless just the right size for the threes of us lovely quiet location in a secure gated complex but still only a ten min walk to harbour so best of both would recommend this apt to anybody also eva who meets you was very friendly and helpful
“A perfect place to spend a holiday” This was our fourth time to Nerja and this was by far the best facility we've stayed at. The house was perfect and spacious and extremely well equipped. The garden was really nice, let alone the pool! We did not have the need to visit the communal pool at all, but spent most of our time in our own, private pool, which was big enough for a family of four (two teenagers). Such luxury! I simply loved this place and will come again! Unfortunately next summer is already fully booked :(
“Superb villa” Stayed inVilla Banus for a week, we wished it could have been longer. Wonderful place, it had everything we needed and more. Very spacious and very clean, lovely outside furniture, very comfy Very good restaurants around the villa, La Sala for a special night is a must, mister noodles for a very tasty meal and not expensive. Lovely week had by all.
Will be saving up to go again next year, you never know we may come away with a nice little yacht!!!
“lovely apartment” This apartment is in a great location, it overlooks the pool area and has a lovely balcony where we sat for breakfast and drinks, inside the apartment there is everything you need for a brilliant holiday, Gaynor who owns the apartment is a very helpful and lovely lady who is always on hand to help nothing is too much trouble.
“Highly recommended and hassle free” Had an amazing time in this villa with my wife and baby. The weather was fabulous so we made full use of the heated pool. The location was top notch, the beach was only a stone throw away as were some nice shops and restaurants. The house was stunning. A spacious, clean and well kept villa it was a joy to stay there. This villa is ideal for whatever type of holiday you want, you could go your whole stay to relax or use it as a base to explore and enjoy the mountains. Highly recommended for cycling enthusiasts. I will definatly be staying here again. Five star service from the owners. Very friendly.
“Spacious, Private, Luxury and Convenient” Wow! What an apartment!!!
My husband and I visited this apartment last weekend with another couple. The apartment is HUGE with the most stunning terrace and a pool which was so quiet it almost felt private. The bedrooms and living room are spacious and kitchen is modern and well equipped.
We'd planned to eat out every night but the place was so nice we actually stayed in more and cooked BBQ's on the terrace whilst watching the sun set over the beautiful golf course.
Car hire is required but the roads are quiet and it's really easy to get to Puerto Banus and Marbella and there are 3 supermarkets within a 5 minute drive.
Highly recommend for couples, friends and families; you won't be dissapointed.
