Interaction with Guests
I am retired and at home much of the time. I am happy to provide any tourist and travel information both local and provincial.
The apartment building is very close to the town centre but in a quiet, safe residential zone. All the tourist shops and the large Mercadona supermarket are less than ten minutes walk away. There are many cafes, bars and restaurants in the same area. There is an excellent Argentinian style steakhouse called Che Bolu just 50m from my front door.
The train station is ten minutes walk, the bus station is five minutes walk, and the airport is ten minutes by taxi. If traveling by train from the airport take the train direction Fuengirola; the journey takes ten minutes. Car parking is in the surrounding streets.
Other Things to Note
You can stretch out in bed in comfort and often hear the waves breaking on the beach.
Make yourself at home. All I ask that you respect my home and leave things as you find them.
You may not smoke inside the apartment but can do so on the balcony with the window closed.
If coming from the pool please dry off before entering the building, and if coming from the beach please don't bring in any sand.
Wet towels need to be hung from the line on the balcony.
Please leave the kitchen exactly as you found it.
You may not bring anyone into the apartment.
After your arrival you can read a printed sheet called "Guide to the apartment" which has hints and tips to help you find your way around and to make your visit comfortable and agreeable.
Feel free to ask any questions (I can't guarantee you will get an answer, however). Also feel free to make any suggestions.

Yet again, a lovely relaxing stay with Ian. Great hairdryer! Thanks again Ian for getting me some groceries before the supermarkets closed for the long weekend - much appreciated.
Location was perfect , easy access to centre, metro, bus station and beach. Nice view from the room and balcony. Room is wide and cosy. Have everything you need. Ian had been so helpful. Came to pick up to the drop off point as I took the shuttle service from airport.
He always gave me the right answer to my question and requests. I had a great time staying there. Thank you so much. I couldn't have enogh time to see Malaga and other town around there. I wish I could visit again.
Super accueil de Ian.
Son appartement est conforme à son annonce.
Il est à 200 m de la zone piétonne de Torremolinos, mais malgré tout au calme.
Ian est de bon conseil et partage volontier ses bonnes adresses.
La verdad que mi estancia en casa de Ian NO resulto lo agradable que se espera, en primer lugar cobra un dinero por la limpieza que en los 9 dias que estube no le vi hacer nada ni en cocina ni en el baño,,,, y en segundo lugar es una persona que no hace que tu estancia resulte agradable, pues el esta todo el tiempo en su televisor con los auriculares puesto y no dialoga nada como anfitrion y ademas no permite que tus amigos suban a visitarte y puedan disfrutar de las vistas que tiene el aprtantamento sobre el mar.... Asi es que senti que no era una estancia agradable ,,,
This is indeed one of the best Airbnb places on the Costa del Sol that ticks all the boxes: the location, the room, the host and the price.
The location is perfect, there's a plethora of restaurants, eateries, pubs, coffee houses and marketplaces in all directions, and big supermarkets, all within walking distances.
The room is spacious, airy, with a very comfortable double bed and a beautiful view to the sea, and it's surprisingly quiet. The whole place is nice and clean.
The host Ian is a very cool guy, well traveled himself, pleasant, easy going and very considerate.
Definitely a hard to beat Airbnb place!
