Description (written by the owner)

Architect Re-Design of 2 units into 1 fabulous facility. Stunning seaviews. Large private roof terrace & Bbq. Spacious interiors. 2 lounges. AirCON. Communal Pool (VFT/MA/07340).

This wonderful vacation home is front-line Mediterranean, with a spectacular panoramic view of the sea, and miles of dramatic mountainous coastline. Totally renovated by its architect/owner, this spacious 3rd floor penthouse is almost twice the size of any other apartment in the Tuhillo building (180 square metres), with 2 separate lounge areas (both sea-facing), a large modern, top quality kitchen complete with granite countertops, 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a front terrace directly overlooking the pool and the sea, as well as a huge (80 square metre)private roof terrace. Air conditioning units throughout. The entire facility is furnished as a home for the architect's family, rather than a commercial holiday rental unit. Looking out over Nerja's popular Burriana Beach, it's just a 6 minute walk to the main town square. Due to the special nature of this facility, rental groups normally limited to 7 people (including children and infants). (More photos available.

THE GARDEN: The penthouse includes access to Tuhillo’s communal garden on a cliff overlooking the sea, where you can enjoy the sun loungers, the shade of palm trees, and a refreshing dip in the pool. At the west end of the building, a public staircase descends directly down to the beach.

LOCAL POINTS OF INTEREST: The Nerja Caves (Spain's 2nd most visited tourist site) are the town's most internationally-known attraction, but the location also caters to other interests. Wander the typical streets & shops, browse the Tuesday street market, learn Spanish at a local language school, time your stay for a colourful local fiesta like San Juan, Easter, or San Isidro - or visit the Moorish fortifications at nearby Almunecar & Salobrena. Day trips to typical Andalucian 'white villages' or jeep adventure tours into the national park in the Alpuharras region are readily available. Granada's famed Alhambra palace is a scenic 90 minute drive away. For the kids: Sea Life, the Selwo Dolphin show & Tivoli World, all at a drivable distance in Benalmadena; the water slide park at Velez Malaga, and even a crocodile farm. For longer trips, Gibralter, Morocco, Ronda, Cordoba and Seville (260 km) are all within a rental car's reach, or by weekly local bus tour. (Tour bus pick-up is just blocks from the apartment.) Skiing in the Sierra Nevadas Dec-April, less than 2hours away.

FOR THE ACTIVE VACATIONER: The beach offers a variety of activities, but you can also head inland. Rent a mountain bike, a motor scooter. The area is well known for its walking paths in the mountains surrounding the town. (Published guide books available locally.) Tired yet? Time to wind down over wine and an evening meal at any of a number of great restaurants, both at the beach and in town.

FOR THE NOT-SO-ACTIVE VACATIONER: Pick yourself a book off one of the shelves and settle into a chair on the front terrace or one of our sun loungers on the private roof deck or, better yet, poolside in the communal garden overlooking the beach. There are worse ways to pass a week!

Amazing Penthouse!

We spent a wonderful week in Tim & Nora's penthouse. The location was perfect with beach & pool just below us, shops & bars close by and just a 5 min walk into the centre. The views are to die for and can be enjoyed from either of 2 sea facing balconies or a massive roof terrace. Extremely well equipped with everything you could ask for. Tim & Nora were absolutely wonderful - organising taxi transfer from the airport for us and sending all the information we needed prior to the trip. Their green binder, in the apartment, was also a great source of information about the property and the local area. Couldn't fault anything & can't wait to return. Thank you so much Tim & Nora xx

Fantastic spacious apartment with great views

We were a party of seven (age range 12 to 70's), the apartment was fantastic and so spacious and It must have one of the best veiws in Nerja! It is also in my opinion perfectly placed as it is roughly the same distance to walk to either the older part of town or the main beach area, both have great restarants. Nerja has some fabulous places to eat and we always had great food. There is plenty of watersports from pedalos to para-sailing. The guys in our group went for a quad bike tour one morning and really enjoyed it. The Nerja caves are worth a visit (best to book in advance) and are just a bus ride away. Tim and Nora organised everything very efficiently and all went perfectly. Thank you so much. Jackie, Andy and family

The Perfect place for a family holiday.

This seaside penthouse provided the perfect base for our wonderful Spring tour of colourful Andalusia. This apartment is the best location in Nerja, a picturesque wonderfully preserved Costa del Sol village. The apartment is perfect - quiet, spacious, comfortable, well-equipped, cool and well laid out with stunning views of the Mediterranean sea, and adjacent beaches. Tim and Nora were so helpful, and even arranged transportation from the Malaga Airport to our home away from home. Their green binder in the apartment provided lots of useful information to help us plan our stay. We all felt at home from the first day. Beginning our days with a leisurely breakfast prepared in a well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed on the large balcony overlooking the beautiful blue Mediterranean. (The boys' job was to buy fresh still warm bread each morning from the friendly baker just up the street learning a few Spanish words in the transaction. ) And each night, tumbling into the comfy beds and falling asleep to the sounds of the sea. Access, by a handsome curved staircase, to a large private roof-top terrace as well as the building’s well-maintained gardens and pool are lovely extras. The location is perfect - short walks to beaches, shops and restaurants, and also easily accessible to the other towns and cities of Southern Spain. Nerja is a lovely town with friendly helpful people, an excellent variety of restaurants, interesting shops and of course lots of the most delicious "helado". Thank you, Tim and Nora, for providing the base for us to create some wonderful family memories. We hope to return again.

Beautiful Apartment in Nerja

Hi Tim & Nora, Thank you very much for letting us use your apartment, it certainly has the best views in Nerja and over the years we have tried many rentals and yours was certainly the best. Lovely views and lovely clean accommodation. A little hiccup with the TV but very grateful for the way you immediately made contact and took responsibility.I will certainly reccomend your apartment and will look to revisit when we next decide to come back to Nerja.

Beautiful, Tranquil and Very Enjoyable

The very best accommodations I have enjoyed in Europe - beautifully kept, modern with all the comforts of home. Incredible view of the ocean from the oversized balcony - breakfast and evening sunsets enjoyed there daily. Walking distance to city square with abundance of local and fine dining, not mention history. Close to everything -shopping, museums, art, shopping and loved walking to the beautiful beach. We did not want to leave. Tim and Nora, we thank you for providing the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful place and we definitely would like to return in the future.

Absolutely Fantastic - Immensely Enjoyed!

Immaculate, spacious, comfortable with a beautiful view overlooking the water. Functional modern kitchen, bath and laundry facilities with all the comforts and accessories for a most enjoyable vacation. Open, bright and airy rooms and amazing balcony/veranda - overlooking the sparking ocean. The upper level terrace was a great bonus. Location was walking distance to lovely restaurants, shopping, centre square and walk to beach. The owners were fabulous - provided information about the property as well as things to do in the area - they really wanted to ensure our stay with enjoyable and memorable. Would definitely return to enjoy future vacations in this suite and location- exceeded my expectations! Thank you to Tim and Nora.

NERJA PARADISE

I spent a wonderful two weeks here celebrating a big birthday with three friends. We had lots of space, much more than you usually get with these rentals. We each had our own comfy bedroom and it was easy to share the two bathrooms. We love to cook, so it was great to find a modern, well equipped kitchen. The weather was fab, and we spent most of our time on the big terrace looking out at the sea or up on the roof for an evening bbq. (When we weren’t in the pool or down at the beach eating paella!) The nice thing about Nerja is that it’s a real place and not just a tourist trap. We spent lot of evenings strolling around town, stopping for tapas (and drinks!) along the way. We found the whole Tuhillo complex very well maintained, and the penthouse squeaky clean. And it was a real bonus to deal with people as pleasant as Tim and Nora. They really did their very best to accomodate our every wish or need.
