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

Other Things to Note
Minimum 4-night stay
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.
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.
Mark's apartment in Nerja is a perfect place to stay while visiting Nerja. It is tastefully appointed, and equipped with everything one needs to be comfortable and cozy. It is located within easy walking distance of the center of old town and the balcon de europa. One note of caution: the picture on airbnb is from the roof of the building, and not from the apartment. This turned out to be no problem, as the apartment has a nice terrace, and we used the roof for spectacular sunrise yoga every morning. An especially nice touch is unlimited hot water for your shower. All in all, Mark has provided a lovely place by the sea.
We loved our stay in Nerja in October. Mark is a fantastic host giving us all the information prior to our visit. The welcome pack is a great touch and was much appreciated after a long day of travelling on Sunday. The apartment is exactly as described and has everything you need for your stay. The beach towels and umbrellas were an added bonus to have. The location is perfect, close to the beach and to great restaurants. We tried most of the recommendations in the book Mark left for us and they really are great. Make sure you visit 34 for the menu del dia - best value ever.
Overall we loved our stay in location! location! location! and would definitely recommend :)
Mark was a pleasure to deal with - quick to respond to queries and always helpful.
We enjoyed our stay in Nerja - the apartment is in a cracking location, very close to the beach, good restaurants and local supermarkets. You really don't need a car unless you want to get out and explore the countryside as everything is within easy walking distance. The apartment is well furnished and has all you need for a lovely stay. The welcome pack of essentials (like water, bread, milk, juice, eggs etc) when we arrived was unexpected and a lovely touch.
One small point - sometimes there is street noise from cars and people in the bedrooms at night. We got some earplugs from the local pharmacy and had no problems sleeping.
Just loved our holiday in Nerja, Mark was the most fantastic host, although we didn't meet him personally he made sure we had absolutely everything and every clear instruction we might ever need and assured us we could just contact him, and I would have felt comfortable doing so. The apartment was very well equipped (probably better than home, only smaller) and in a great location. Mark very generously left the weary travelers basic food stuff and a lovely bottle of wine, there are even beach umbrellas, chairs and towels for us to use, all most appreciated. We just wished we had cut short other parts of our holiday so we could have stayed a little longer. We have stayed in quite a number of airbnb apartments and this one is the best, no one could be disappointed staying in 'Location! Location! Location!'.
Hi Sandy, really pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay in Nerja. It makes my day to hear it! I am not sure when you might return to Europe but if you do, why not come for a longer stay? I would be more than happy to have you as our guest once again. Thanks for the lovely review.
This was my first Airbnb experience and it could not have started on a better note. Mark was the best imaginable host, always extremely prompt, friendly and informative. The location was shockingly perfect; beautiful secluded beach coves a stone's throw away and Nerja's pretty town center (albeit very touristy!) near by as well. The apartment felt like staying in a friend's house, everything you could possibly need and all very personal and cozy. Add to that the wine and food that awaited our arrival and I can not praise this Airbnb location enough. If there were any more stars to give it I would for all the extra, personal touches.
Many thanks for such a kind review. I take great pleasure in looking after my guests so it is always gratifying when it is appreciated!! Hopefully I will have the pleasure of having you as a guest again sometime in the future and to point you to the less 'touristy' parts of Nerja! Yes, they do exist!
What a great apartment! My husband and I had a great stay in Nerja and we are so glad we found this place. It is in an exceptional location -- just steps away from the beach and many restaurants. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed (and more!). Prior to our arrival, Mark sent me all of the necessary information/directions in advance which made for a seamless vacation! I would absolutely stay again and would highly recommend to anyone seeking accommodations in Nerja!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the apartment. I do hope I will be able to host you again in the future. I am planning more improvements to the kitchen and bathroom so if you ever do return to Nerja, I hope I will be able to offer you an even better experience! By the way, all returning guests always get a discount! Best, Mark
