We stayed here as a family last Oct 13 for 1 week. 6 adults and one 2yr old. The accomodation itself was spot on and exactly as described by the owners. The townhouse is spread over 3floors and very well appointed. 2 balconies and garden to the rear which do get the sun at different times of the day however there is a large open terrace on the street level at the main door to the house which attracts the sun without interuption-a joy to sit at all day especially the evening time. There is also ample shaded areas.
There is also easy access to the shared pool, a 1 min walk away, with bar area and small restuarant snack bar.
The beach is a 5-10mins easy walk down the hill if you are fit enough although those with any mobility issues may struggle,however you can drive your hire car straight onto beach road and access is simple from there!
The townhouse itself ,within the tropicana complex , is a good 20min walk from nerja or 5mins by taxi costing 6euros. We had hired a car simply to go to shops for supplies etc but there is no real need for this as taxis are plentiful for any of your needs and parking the car in town,at times,awkward.
Call the taxi with your mobile or the bar staff are more than happy to oblige.
A good location for peace and quiet during the day or night with easy access to the busier nerja. We sat out most nights on the terrace-we were neither roudy nor quiet-with no complaints or noise from neighbours. The neighbours are a good mix of people living in nerja full time,long letting or short hols.
J and j that own the property are very helpful with hints and tips of surrounding areas and always gave us good advice even down to the best supermarket. Any dealing at all with the owners was smooth and timely!
We also would reccomend most definitely the el avalon restaurant at the bottom of the main road and up the stairs-5mins walk away-and 1 of the best steaks i have ever had-quality on your doorstep and a great treat!
We also got the welcome hamper/pack from owners which was good value.
We hired the car fom lessaggro in the town centre-no problems and would recommend.
To summarise-The townhouse is great,all you need,fitted kitchen,washing machine,great outside areas,two great seperate sitting areas inside with tv dvd(beer fridge in lower sitting area), Stairs aplenty to keep you fit.
If you like exploring and going to beaches(which are plentiful within 5mins drive) hire a car.
If you like relaxing,enjoy the town house and the pool,get a taxi to supermarket for supplies or to town at night.
p.s our 2 yr old had the run of the first floor-kitchen, sitting room,toilet and outside terrace with no restraints apart from blocking the stairs at the top with child gate.
