Marbella's Old Quarter
Unique cosy apartment in an 210 year old building right on the Orange Square (Plaza de los Naranjos) in the Old Town (Casco Antiguo) of Marbella City Center.

The space
Old and charming but still with modern technology, like WiFi, Air Condition, Dishwasher and Ceramic Hobs!

This apartment is newly renovated with respect for the old construction and is kept in light colors with parquet floor throughout the entire apartment.

But before going any further with falling in love with my amazing apartment in the very center of everything, I would like you to consider the following.

These are the 7 things that previous Guests have LOVED 👍🏻❤️the most about my apartment – if this is all you, then go ahead, read on and book!

1. Located right on the Orange Square, in Marbella Centro ❤️
2. Beach towels and regular towels are included in the price ❤️
3. Spanish TV, so you can become bi-lingual during your stay ❤️
4. Sunshine on the roof terrace all day long ❤️
5. The owner runs a Cleaning Company. That kinda says it all ❤️
6. Air Condition ❤️
7. WiFi ❤️

These are the 3 things that previous Guest have ⛔️ DISLIKED ⛔️the most about my apartment – if you feel the same, then my apartment is NOT the right place for you to stay. We’ll just end up getting miserable all together!

1. There are 24 steps from street level to the front door. No elevator! ⛔️
2. There will be street noise due to the central location, also at night. ⛔️
3. The shower is crooked, so it requires talent not to flood the floor. ⛔️

Terrace
This apartment have a newly renovated terrace with partly glass flooring where it is possible to sit and enjoy breakfast, as the morning sun turns the corner and shine on the terrace most of the day.

In order to keep this little terrace in the middle of one of the oldest town on the Costa del Sol coastline cozy, I have planted some tough flowers that love direct sun in handmade and hand-painted Spanish clay pots.
- However they kept drying out due to lack of watering, so I threw them away and replaced them all with 100% PVC flowers, so no need to worry about drying out my plants, they are already dead!

The terrace has a shady awning, which comes in handy once the sun starts to get really warm during mid-day. There are also some wooden teak lounge furniture’s for the terrace, so it is now possible to take a nap or wedge out with a glass of sangria all day long.

There is also an ashtray on the terrace, as this is the only place where you might smoke. Please remember to close the door to the apartment, as I’m a non-smoker and I would like the apartment to stay a non-smoking apartment. But on the terrace, you can smoke anything as much as you like – just remember to use the ashtray - and be careful not to drop hot ash anywhere, as the Old Town is a car free zone and it would be impossible for a firetruck to get into the area...

Welcome
When entering the apartment you walk into the combined living and dining room, where you'll find 2 comfy couches for you to relax in, after a long days walk around town or a hot day on the beach, which is located just 7 min. walk from the apartment - or 19 minutes if you walk with a 3 year old in your hand, who spots the horses and carriage that takes tourists around town...!

There is also a dining table with chairs for 4 people, hangers for your coat (in case you feel like needing one!) and parking space for your outdoor shoes. So please, do not walk with outside shoes inside the apartment.

From the living-dining room, there is access to the terrace, through a big glass door.

Kitchen
There is also access to the box-like kitchen, which contains everything you need to cook a proper dinner or just preparing a sandwich. There is a hot air oven, ceramic hobs, microwave, dishwasher, combined dryer and washing machine in one, Senseo Coffee machine and a concealed fridge freezer. It is all brand new, so please take good care of it!
- you may use whatever you find in the cupboards, as it is there for the very same reason. Just take some, and if you like, leave some for the next Guests or for my cleaning lady.

Rooms
From the living-dining room, there is access to the hallway where the 3 bedrooms are. All 3 rooms face windows towards the narrow alley below, where there are restaurants.

On your right hand is the master bedroom, with one semi-hard 180x200 mattress, two summer duvets and 2x pillows pr. Guest.
The duvets and the pillows are all washed after each booking period, so you can be sure it is all 100% clean. The bed sheets are from the Danish Designer Susanne Schjerning who makes Scandinavian quality linen - to keep the quality high, I ironed all bed sheets so they are really crispy and nice to crawl into, after a long day in this amazing city!
There is also a closet for your cloth and 2 bamboo nightstands with an alarm clock and bedside lamps.

One side of the closet however, is locked - this is for my private things. Please respect that.

Down the hallway you find the next bedroom on your right hand. I call it the Butterfly Room. Here you’ll got a white dresser and a 140x200 bed which also have semi-hard mattresses, two summer duvets and 2 x pillows pr. Guest - and of course newly ironed crispy bed sheets! There are also a bamboo nightstand, dresser, mirror and plenty of electric sockets for you to charge your phone, camera etc.

Next room on your right hand is the last bedroom in the apartment. In here you'll also find a brand new 140x200 bed with semi-hard mattress - also with crispy newly ironed bed sheets, nightstands, dresser, mirror, lights, flowers and plenty of electric sockets.

In the wintertime all duvets are switched with winter duvets, to ensure that you still get a good nights sleep and don't get cold.

Depending on how many people you are, I'll lock the other rooms that you are not using/renting. Like this:

If you are just 2 people, you'll get access to one bedroom and two bathrooms. If you are 4 people, you'll get access to two bedrooms and two bathrooms, if you are more than 4 people you'll get access to the entire apartment.

If you wish to have access to more rooms than written here, please let me know before arrival.

Bathrooms
Across from the last bedroom you'll find the 2 bathrooms in the apartment.

Both bathrooms have environmentally friendly water saving toilets, a separate shower with Eco water saver function and a sink with a small cabin below where you'll find extra toilet paper, towels, beach towels, hairdryer etc. There’s also a window in both bathrooms, which allows great light and ventilation.

In the small bathroom, there is a shelf where other Guests have left behind shampoo, shower gel, shaving foam, toothpaste and tons of other stuff. Feel free to use whatever you find - or leave some for the next Guest.

WiFi, TV & Other small things
The WiFi is the fastest you can get in the Old Town. It is free and included in the price. However, please DO NOT pretend to be a IT Technician and re-set the router, if you do so and I have to get someone out to fix it, the price will be on you!!

The WiFi is ALWAYS working 100% upon your arrival, so don't change anything!

The TV only shows Spanish Channels, but that means you can be bi-lingual by the time you leave. Watching MTV in Spanish has it's charm! There is also a DVD player and some DVD's in the sideboard under the TV.

Again, don't change the settings (or the language!!!) on the TV, it works, so there is really no need to fiddle around. You can do so at home!

All bedroom windows have outside blinds to pull down, in case you like to sleep in the dark - every morning you can hear the locals pull up the blinds to let the sun in and you know a new day has started!

There are also new double-glassed windows through out the entire apartment.

The Orange Square
My apartment is located right on the Orange Square in the old town of Marbella and the building has front towards the old City Hall, Orange trees, Fountains and the innumerable amount of restaurants, bars and take-away places in all price categories.

Due to the central location of the apartment, and the fact that you are in Andalusia, home to the most warm-blooded Spanish people, there will be city noise. All year around, also at night.
The streets are very very narrow, and covered with cobblestones, seashells and pebbles from the Mediterranean Sea. In itself that create street noise.

When people walk and talk, the tapas bars have live Flamenco dance and the old men starts to sing after a little too much sun and quite a few cana's, you can only expect to feel and hear the heartbeat of the city, as the sound goes up along the buildings.

If you are a light sleeper or demand 100% silence on your holiday, I would NOT choose this apartment, as this is a city that never sleeps, especially during the summertime.

Shopping & Grocery
If you like to cook yourself, there is a Mercadona and a SuperSol Supermarket within walking distance of the apartment. They are normally open between 10.00 am and 20.00 pm on weekdays.

If you want a bit more high-end grocery, you should go to La Canada, which is a huge shopping mall with more than 180 shops and a rather big Supermarket (Al Campo) La Canada is located a 7-10€ taxi ride away from the apartment.

There is also an Open Core around 5 min. walk from the apartment. Open Core has a limited selection of groceries but are open 24 hours, 365 days a year, so it is a good place to start out, if you arrive late at night.

Guest access
The entire apartment. Nothing is shared with anybody else.

Other things to note
AIR CONDITION

There are newly installed Air Condition in each room in the apartment from February 2018, according to the new Spanish rental law. In total 4 new LG ++ Air Conditioner.

However, after renting out my apartment without Air Condition for 5 years with no problems or complains at all, the new rental law and it's demands have been very hard on my economy to fulfill.

My apartment is cheap, the cleanliness and quality is super high - just read my reviews - but in order for Guests not to completely loose their wit while on holiday and screw any electrical bill coming later on, there is a 45€ extra cost on electricity/resort fee (made in agreement with Airbnb's Customer Service Team)

So please be environmentally and financially conscious (for yours and my sake) and think twice before turning on the Air Condition, Dryer, Washing Machine, Dishwasher etc. as you are paying for your consumption upon checkout.
- also, if you have everything running at once, including 4 Aircon, the power might cut, as it is a too large amount of energy to be used at the same time.

When using the Air Condition, whether it be for heating or cooling, remember to keep all doors and windows closed. Thanks for being such a champ!!
