“Beautiful apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 4 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is a really great apartment with a lovely sea view, good sized balcony, and very well kitted out interior. The pool is small but we never saw anyone else use it, so it was like a private plunge pool. A bit chilly in April, but we plunged in anyway! The walk down to the beach is very short, and then there's a very nice walk along the beach into Nerja town. We didn't bother with car hire for the first week and didn't miss having one. We rented one for the second week as we wanted to go into the mountains, but if you just want to stay local, the buses are nearby and will take you to the town, Frigiliana and beyond. We loved Nerja - the last time we were there was 20 years ago, and although it's bigger now, it has retained all of its charm and appeal. There are a few pubs, cafe's and restaurants close to the apartment, and lots to choose from in Nerja town.
Tim and Emma sent us lots of local information and were extremely helpful and responded very quickly to all of our queries. We had a great time and would love to return.

“Great apartment, view and access to beach and sea”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in June 2016

Away from crowds, south of Malaga, this apartment near Nerja is fabulously placed to walk to the sea in a few minutes, enjoy the nearby town and sites and drive into the mountains. The apartment is extremely well furnished and faces the sun but with necessary shade. It has a small pool but never needed. It was wonderful to walk back from the beach and relax. Honestly this is worthwhile using and easy to reach from the airport. We loved it. Friendly neighbours.

Just back from here last week it has all you would want from a holiday apt great views location a bit out from Nerja 20 minutes walk at your leisure 8 mins by taxi.Punta Lara it self is built around a side of a mountain so you do have hills,This apt.is at the bottom of a hill in order to get to the Punta Lara bar you have to walk up a fairly steep hill the hill going down to the tropical bar is not to bad.We ended up driving to either bar and walking back home ,You need a car to get around there is no shop around and if you need food or drink to buy there is a lidl about 5 mins drive.The apt, itself has a very sunny terrace where the sun is on it till about 4 in the afternoon and the pool area gets it all day.Would i go back yes
