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.
Absolutely beautiful apartment. Ticked all the boxes for us. Location was amazing, views were spectacular & apartment itself was lovely. Mark was very helpful and accommodating in advance of the trip. We both genuinely couldn't find any faults. Intend to return to both Nerja & this wonderful apartment in the near future!
We loved staying in Mark's apartment so much. I think this was one of my favourite holidays. The apartment is perfect and Nerja is wonderful. I loved sitting on the balcony in the evening and enjoying a glass of cold Verdejo. We spent a lot of time by the pool and loved exploring different beaches each day. The location is excellent - away from the touristy-ness of Burriana (the beach is great but the area by it is very touristy and the restaurants average) but close enough to walk to Burriana beach if you want. Close enough also to walk easily in the other direction to the old city and the Balcon de Europa for icecream in the evening but not so close that you get bothered by the noise. The beaches nearby are fabulous. Our favourite was the small Carabeo beach, which I will hold in my heart forever. Thanks Mark!
ps: my only advice to prospective guests is that if you are travelling with small children, the balcony of the apartment might be problematic as the barrier is quite low and there is a bench that your child could climb up and then topple over the balcony. It wasn't a problem for us (our child was almost 3 years) but if you are nervous about this then you might want to book somewhere else.
Apartamento acogedor, en muy buena ubicación al lado de la playa de Burriana y al final del paseo de Carabeo (ideal para pasear hacia el centro, muy cercano al Balcón de Europa).
Great apartment in the best location in town. We loved staying here. Everything we needed was close by: beach, mini market, shops, car parka great restaurants. Mark had left lots of travel advice and information to make our stay easy. The roof terrace is a beautiful place to relax and the view is stunning. We had loads of communication from Mark and he made us most welcome. Best place to stay in Nerja!
It was one of the best Airbnb experience out of the 5 we had in Andalusia. The apartmant has a superb location and it feels like your own home at the very beginning. Equipped with EVERYTHING you would need, it is well maintaned, cleaned and decorated with good taste. We were provided with beach towel, umbrellas for the beach, radio/cd player, guide book etc. As I said like at home. Mark was easily approchable and the info pack left in the apt was very clear and useful. If u arrive with car you can park free around in the street however in high season u have to make several rounds to find free space but it is worth if u dont want to pay in the big parking place just above the apartmant block. Thanks Mark again for making our stay superb:)
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.
