Description (written by the owner)

WOW, frontline, quality. Ideal for that special vacation. Own solar heated pool. Panoramic views from private south/east/west terraces.

Arguably the nicest in Almunecar. Spacious, airy, private, and furnished throughout to a high standard. Walk through the front door into a light and welcoming entrance hall with glass doors opening either side onto the east and west terraces. Corridor to the main living areas and another leads off one to the bathroom and bedrooms.

The kitchen is modern and well equipped with a door opening directly onto the west terrace. The plunge pool, bar and BBQ are situated on this terrace.

There are 2 lounges, the main one is furnished with settees, coffee table and armchairs. The TV lounge also has a settee, coffee table, recliner armchair, LCD TV with satellite viewing, BBC and ITV incl, DVD player, and WiFi internet connection. Both areas have doors leading directly onto the south terraces.

The dining area is furnished with a large glass top table that can seat 8 and a dresser with a selection of books and DVDs.

The master en-suite bedroom is furnished with a king size bed and bedroom 2 with twin beds. There is an en-suite bathroom. The main bathroom is equipped with wc, bidet, hand basin and a jet shower cubicle with a variety of settings.

The east, south and west facing terraces are decorated with tropical palms, plants and flowers. There are fantastic 360 degree views over the roofs of Almunecar old town and castle, the mediterranean, and Marina del Este. You can enjoy complete privacy lazing by the pool or relaxing on one of the terraces.

The property is frontline on the much sought after San Cristobal Beach and has private underground parking. You are within easy walking distance of the town centre with its shops, supermarkets, restaurants, markets and bars (where complimentary tapas are still served). There are a further 3 community pools (open high season) and a tennis court available for use.

The Costa Tropical is renowned for its unique subtropical microclimate with very little rain due to the close proximity of the high Sierras and the North African coastline. You can easily drive to the famous ski resort of Sierra Nevada for a days skiing.

The nearby water park (open high season) is a short walk away and as are a variety of water sports including sailing, windsurfing, diving, etc. Other activities include paragliding, horse riding, hiking and various clubs and discotheques along the coast. There are two 18-hole golf courses within a half-an-hour drive and a further course 45 minutes away. The Sierra Nevada ski resort is within easy driving distance for a days skiing.

Almuñécar is ideally located for taking an excursion to some of the wonderful sights the southern coast of Spain has to offer. Spectacular mountain scenery, unspoilt white towns, historic monuments, all within easy reach. You can laze on the beach in the morning, and in the afternoon visit local villages (Otivar, Jete or Lentejí) or Las Alpujarras, which are a series of mountain foothills that lie between Sierra Nevada and the sea with beautiful valleys and extraordinary snow peaks.

What an incredible place!

We've recently returned from 10 days in Tony's penthouse apartment and I have to say, the pictures don't do it justice! The terrace stretches all the way round the property giving you full 360 views of the mountains and the entire Almuñécar bay. There is so much outside space!! The place was immaculate, and Tony arranged for the pool to be cleaned and the linen to be changed twice during our stay. And little things like a bottle of champagne in the fridge on arrival made our stay unforgettable. I would highly recommend it here and will be passing on the property details to all my friends and family.

Perfect Apartment

We chose this apartment as we were taking my wife's parents on holiday. Neither of them can walk very far and my mother-in-law doesn't enjoy good health. The apartment is situated very near many bars and restaurants, which we were able to get to easily. The terraces enabled us to find our own space if we needed to, with the pool being a welcome addition. This made it possible to relax In the apartment during the day. The inside didn't disappoint either which very spacious; decorated throughout in white making it light and airy. Jackie, who greeted us, was extremely helpful and personable too. In all, we had a very pleasurable and enjoyable stay.

Simply The Best

We spent a wonderful holiday in the well situated Penthouse. We immediately recognized that many appliances were new, even the BBQ, we were very pleased about it. All was very well maintained and we enjoyed your Penthouse and Jacqui’s perfect service.

Fantastic location in a disappointing resort

With superb views in every direction from the 'wrap around' terraces and spacious, well-equipped accommodation, the simple truth is that there's almost no need to leave this penthouse apartment during your stay - unless it's to shop for provisions, take a dip in the sea (directly opposite) or sample one of the many local tapas bars and restaurants. Which is just as well, since we found Almunecar something of a let down, in terms of its disappointing sea front aesthetics and environmental appeal. Better research would probably have told us that the beach is mainly shingle and shale, and drops fairly steeply into the sea but, if a paddle or swim is high on your 'to do' list, you'd be better advised to head for one of the complex's three and very clean pools, or for the much prettier, neighbouring bay of La Herradura if you want a more traditional beach-based holiday. Fortunately, the vistas from this penthouse apartment more than make up for its decidedly average surrounding environment - so stock up with the G&Ts, lie back, bask in the sunshine and enjoy the views! One other word of caution: getting into and out of the apartment complex (especially if your car is in the underground car park) is something of a chore, involving several different keys, temperamental, malfunctioning locks and two flights of stairs. Not for the easily irritated or faint hearted!

A Great Property and Location

Booking was straightforward and the owner was most helpful at all times. Our welcome and subsequent service from his local representative could hardly have been better. The penthouse was all that we expected and more with its spaciousness, facilities, allround terraces and wonderful views - you can always find a sunny or shaded corner whichever you want and we had our breakfasy outside most mornings even in February/March. The only slight downer is the wind, which on this coast can be a bit of a bother, and being a penthouse on the 9th floor it can certainly be felt when it does blow - although significant not a major problem. The location is extremely good, there being a number of bars, restaurants and a large supermarket within a 5/10 minute walk and the old town and modern centre about another 10 minutes. The town has plenty of amenities, even in winter when the Spanish visit, and a Culture centre which has a wide variety of activities including recently released films in English every Sunday. Very highly reccomended.

Perfect penthouse!

This property is fabulous: very spacious, great views over sea, beach town and mountains, and superbly equipped with all home comforts. It is well located for beach, restaurants and the old town's attractions. It is also an easy drive to Granada and its glorious Alhambra. We had a great holiday - helped by going at the time of the Jazz en la Costa festival (16-22 July)!
