About this listing
A cosy 2-bedroom apartment located in the sought-after Carabeo area of Nerja.
Step out of this apartment and you find yourself at the top of Calle Carabeo, quite possibly the most picturesque street in Nerja. Turn right and you can enjoy a pleasant 10-minute stroll, taking in the lovely fisherman's cottages, boutiques and cafes that line the pedestrianized street, before you arrive at Balcon de Europa, a beautiful viewpoint that juts out into the sea giving you wonderful vistas out into the Med. Turn left and a mere 50 metres along the road you come to some steps that take you down to a small sandy cove and the sea. Carabeillo Beach is usually pretty quiet as there are no facilities - just a shower to get the sand off you - perfect for a quiet morning swim. What about the apartment I hear you say? Well, it's a pretty two-bed on the top floor of a three-floor building (no lift) with plenty of character. The flat is very secure as there is a gate you can lock protecting the main door - quite common in Spain. Inside, you will find a spacious lounge with a sofa, a couple of armchairs, satellite TV (English channels available including BBC & ITV), pay-as-you-go WiFi (not the fastest but perfectly adequate for email, posting photos on (website hidden) and so on), brand new-air conditioning, a dining room table and four chairs. French windows open out onto a pretty terrace with a table and two chairs. The main bedroom, which is also air-conditioned, has a double bed, wardrobe and French windows that open out onto the balcony. Both this bedroom and living room face east so good sun in the morning and cool in the afternoon. The second bedroom is small - more ideally situated to two small children than two adults - It is not air conditioned but stays pretty cool if you leave the door open to the living room. There is a large fan in the room to ensure a restful night. There are two new sprung single beds with one bed sliding out from under the other. The kitchen comes fully equipped. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower, toilet, washbasin and a Bosch washing machine. If you are a sunseeker, there is a massive communal roof terrace with fantastic views for your to enjoy. Sunbeds are dotted around the terrace and there are sun lounger cushions in the flat for you to take up to the roof. The pool is a decent size and quite deep. It's on the ground floor. There is some room around the pool to put a chair down and sunbathe but not much! On arrival at our flat, you will be offered a welcome pack and you will find the beds made and ready for you. Bathroom and beach towels are available for your use.The cost includes final cleaning at the end of your stay. Come and enjoy our flat in Nerja. We would love you to stay! Mark & David

A copy of the building's rules regarding the use of the pool and the roof terrace will be available to all guests. We would ask guests to keep all noise down after 11pm.
Mark was brilliant- answered all of my questions quickly and went over and above to ensure a comfortable stay. The apartment was perfect- well equipped and comfortable, a short walk to the beach, and all the bars and restaurants surrounding the Balcon de Europa.
There were a few goodies in the fridge to get us started, some great restaurant recommendations and all the beach equipment you could possibly need.
In short- I couldn't recommend this apartment enough. We'll definitely be returning!
Loved our stay at Mark's place in Nerja. We were thankful for the staples we found in the fridge (yes, wine is a staple!). We had no problems and would stay there again if ever in Nerja.
Just back from a lovely stay at Mark's apartment. Very responsive host and nothing was a hassle. Apartment really is in a great spot and it was very clean. Fully functional and equipt (washing machine, iron, etc.) everything we needed was there. Pay-as-you-go Wifi was a little expensive, my only complaint.
Wish we could have stayed longer!! Overall - Highly recommend
The welcome we received was fantastic - the welcome pack was just that - it made us feel so at home. The apartment was perfect, so well equipped and the neighbourhood, being just beside the sea and the old town of Nerja couldn't have been more ideal.
The apartment was comfartable. Not too big, but for a stay of one week and with good weather, it is a very good accomodation.
clean bathroom and kitchen, towels and linen present plus some useful goods in the fridge.
communicating with Mark was easy, answers came quick.
The location of the aparment in Nerja is grea. Close to the beach and a 5-10 min walk to the city centre.
A good-feeling house, personally decorated, with all the comfort you need. Very accurate communication. The description of the area is right; you are in the most beautiful street of Nerja. A good choice!
The apartment was delightful and well equipped with all amenities-- and some unexpected welcome treats were much appreciated after a long road trip. The apartment was extremely comfortable with a nice balcony and in a terrific location and neighborhood. The beach, accessible by a brief walk down from the bluff was only a minute away. Restaurants, old town, and shopping were nearby. When a simple question arose it was addressed immediately by the apartment manager. Mark was responsive throughout when making arrangements and helped with advice. We would definitely stay there again should opportunity arise and we recommend it without reservation.
