Apartment - Entire home/apt · Calle Hernando de Carabeo, Nerja, Andalusia 29780, Spain

The Space

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, 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

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Vi tilbragte en uge i oktober i Marks dejlige lejlighed, meget tæt på den smukke strand i Nerja. Alt var i orden i lejligheden, som ligger meget centralt og har en fantastisk tagterrasse med udsigt over havet. Mark er en meget venlig og hjælpsom vært, der gør alt for, at man skal føle sig hjemme. Der var sørget for en velkomstpakke med brød, æg, mælk, juice, kaffe m.v. da vi ankom. Lejligheden er meget ren og smagfuldt indrettet. Der er sikker parkering ( Carabeo ) tæt (website hidden) betalte 45 euro for parkering i en uge, og det var godt givet ud, da det er svært at finde en p- plads i (website hidden) giver den bedste anbefaling til denne ferielejlighed.

  • What a marvellous place!
    Wir hatten wunderbare Tage in Nerja mit der Wohnung als perfekter Basis, die wirklich keinen Wunsch mehr offen ließ. Wie von den Vorgängern beschrieben alles perfekt - Wohnung, Lage, Abwicklung - ein Traum!

  • We spent almost a week in Mark's flat. Everything was very, very good! We found all we need for our holidays - all thing are at place, you feel as at home. The town is beautiful! Good restaurants, beaches, sea. Mark also gave us some advices on restaurants and beaches, ask a price for parking for us and was very friendly and warm. We would like to return once again. Thanks a lot!!

  • This is a great apartment at the best place of Nerja! It is very close to the beach; it is not in the city centre were all the tourists walk and party, it is close enough to the city centre to get there in a few minutes by walking; it has a great roof terrace; there is a swimming pool; in the apartment is everything you need (including a parasol for on the beach!); there is airconditioning; the apartment had a nice balcony; you can sleep well. The only thing is that Nerja is full of English tourists, which we didn't expect. We thought Nerja would be more authentic. The people in a restaurant start to speak English to you instead of Spanish! But ofcourse the owner of the apartment could not help this.

  • The apartment is very homely, clean and comfortable with everything you could possibly need. It is ideally situated for the beach and the town. The pool and terrace were good to have as well. The only downside is the arrangements for collecting the keys. It would have been impossible to do so if we had travelled by bus which we would have done if we'd landed at a decent time. You need to travel by taxi or hire a car so that you can collect the keys from the hotel and get to the apartment. We would still consider staying here again in the future but if the collection point was more local to the apartment it would be even better. Mark was very obliging and helpful.

    Response from Mark:

    Hi Carole, many thanks for your feedback. I fully understand that the key pick-up situation is not ideal if you are not in a car. In future, I shall send keys directly to guests who intend to come to Nerja by bus to avoid this problem. Pleased to hear you enjoyed the flat. We plan to make further improvements to it once the summer season is over. I hope you will consider being our guest in the future. Best, Mark

  • Mark, as you said, I also find we had good communication and came to an amiable conclusion. Very much appreciated.

    Mark est un hôte qui communique bien et n'a jamais tardé à répondre à mes questions. J'ai fait la réservation de son appartement pour deux copines qui ont laissé le commentaire suivant au sujet de l'emplacement:
    Bel appartement beau rapport qualité prix
    Mais bruyant en fin de soirée

    Merci, Mark, pour ta flexibilité. Ça été facile de faire affaire avec toi. Je recommande l'hôte et l'appartement pour votre prochaine visite à Nerja.

  • Marks tastefull apartment is one between others in a beautyfull house wich stands in one of the famoust streets in the old town of Nerja. In a few minutes you can reach diferent beaches, the exciting old town, tapas and flamenco bars, shops, supermarkets, car rentals, medicals etc.
    From the roof terrace you have a great view over the old town and the sea.
    I spent my holidays the fifth time in Nerja. Again I enjoyed everything!
    I will come back!
