We have stayed 11 days in this appartment. We were welcomed very kindly by a friend of Maria. Maria and her husband are very kind people.
On beforehand Maria and her husband made a (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) group with us, so when we had questions we could just ask them. We rent a car, and the hosts helped us very well with questions we had about parking in the area. They even gave us tips about good restaurants, shops and activities for days when the weather wasn't nice.
When we first entered the appartment, we were surprised positively. It was even better than the pictures. The appartment was clean, fresh colours, light, and spacious. A big advantage, during the day it has a lot of light, but at night you can make it completely dark using the blinds. The airco works really well.
There was way more kitchen equipment than we expected, a lot of plates, cutlery, glasses. There even was coffee, multiple kinds of tea, sugar, coffeemilk, salt, pepper, other herbs, napkins, and water in the big fridge. The freezer was also big. Dish soap and laundry detergent were present. There was enough space to hang the laundry on the balcony. While most appartments have a 2 burner hob, this one has a 4 burner electric hob.
There were enough towels for the 2 of us, even towels to take to the beach were there.
It was also very nice that they had a toaster and an electric kettle.
The lighting was very cosy, in case you stay home for an evening.
The appartment is very well located, there is a bakery 2 minutes walk away, and the supermarket was just as close.
The swimming pool was perfect, water temperature was perfect, good maintenance of the pool and garden, nice and quiet (often it looked like we had a private pool). The neighbours and surroundings were very quiet so it wasn't noisy at all.
The hosts made a book filled with information about Torremolinos and Malaga, which places to visit, restaurants, musea, stores, supermarkets and what not. This book was in multiple languages. Great service!
Halfway our visit we were asked if we wanted someone to come and clean the appartment. We accepted, and when we came home everything was cleaned. The beds were made, the floor was mopped, the towels were replaced, even the dishes were done for us. Everything looked neat, the way we first entered the apparment.
The only negative point we can think of is that the bed is on the small side. But the rest is excelent, we would advise anyone to book this appartment. We give the appartment and the service a 10 out of 10.
