I'm outgoing person who likes traveling, cooking and having fun. I speak English, Spanish and Italian, love to meet new people and making new friends.
Great experience staying with Barbara and her charming son. Excellent location in the centre of Malaga. Unfortunately I only planned on staying one night and was flying out the next day! I was definitely inspired to return one day soon.
My first time in Malaga. Location is superb. In the town centre where everything is in reaching distance. Beach and the new shops and restaurants about a 5 minute walk. The facilities are good. Barbara was an absolute great host, laid back and informative on places to visit. Great stay.
I think I simply picked the best place to stay in Malaga. The apartment itself is wonderful, the room is spacious and Barbara is so welcoming. I felt at home within minutes. I kept telling Barbara I would die to live in an apartment like that in the centre of Malaga!
The location is unbeatable: you are 2 minutes away from Plaza de la Constitucion, the Picasso museum, the Cathedral and La Merced. Within my first 6 hours in Malaga I had already covered all the touristy bits I wanted to see and had plenty of time to travel around the next few days.
At night, you can reach all the bars, restaurants and pubs in the centre within minutes - the most difficult bit for you as a tourist will be to decide 'where to go tonight' as there are so many options. On my first night I walked to the beach after dinner and it only took me 15-20 minutes.
I found Malaga very inspiring and elegant. And staying at Barbara's definitely contributed to the experience. Should I have the opportunity, I would definitely go back.
I had a superb stay at Barbara's. Her place is right in the center of the city. I would definitely stay at her place whenever the chance to go again to Malaga.
- the apartment is located in the heart of a friendly and lively area
- most museums and cultural landmarks are within 15 minutes walk
- the room is large
- the apartment is not that easy to find and about 20-25 minutes away by foot from the Cercania station.
- the apartment is on the third floor, without a lift.
These 2 points have to be taken in consideration if you carry 2 heavy luggages.
- the noise in the street below can be disturbing in the middle of the night.
- the room was cold.
- we were not allowed to use the washing machine.
- the room doesn't have a private bathroom.
The room may not be for everyone or for a long stay.
We were only in Malaga one night before flying out very early and Barbara's home was comfortable and conveniently located. She was very kind and helped us figure out our travel plans to the airport. The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable. It was a little bit chilly in winter and there was a bit of noise outside until the wee hours, so we'd recommend ear plugs for light sleepers!
I loved Barbara and her cute son. They both are very warm and welcoming people.
nice room, good location !!
Barbara and Sean (her son) received us wholeheartedly. Gave us some useful tips on local eateries! Great located and well kept apartment. The room is spacious and large hence could be a little chilly during cold nights! Thank you!
I only stayed one night before flying back home. The flat is really gorgeous and centrally located/very easy to find. At night it can be noisy on the street but nothing a pair of earplugs won't solve. I slept really well (and the bed was massive!). Barbara was helpful before and during my stay. You couldn't beat the location- everything is on your doorstep!
Barbara is nice guest, they stay in my apartment on Oct. They can take take my apartment like their owned.
I would gladly recommend Barbara to anybody. She is a fantastic host that looks after everyone. Barbara can speak perfect English, Spanish and Italian and has excellent knowledge of the area. More than willing to help a person in any way, she will make you feel relaxed, welcome and very glad that you stayed in this amazingly located apartment. In the heart of the beautiful city center of Málaga and only 10 minutes walk to the beach. By far the best value for money in the breathtaking Costa del Sol. The apartment is very clean, modern and comfortable. A fantastic place to stay in a wonderful city.
