Apartment in Burriana Area in Nerja, Costa del Sol, Spain - Just A Few Minutes Walk To Burriana Beach In The Family-Friendly Town Of Nerja In Spain
About Helen Wiggins
I live in Surrey, UK, with my husband and nine year old son. We have spent all our available holidays in Nerja for many years and fell in love with Spain and particularly Nerja.
Helen Wiggins purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Helen Wiggins chose Nerja
We love Nerja and particularly the Burriana area where we own our apartment. The beach is clean with excellent facilities, bars and restaurants and is only a few minutes walk away. The town is also within a short walking distance and boasts the famous Balcon d'Europa and more bars and restaurants with something for every taste. Flights to the nearest airport Malaga are plentiful and the drive from the airport to the apartment is only 45 minutes drive away. We like the fact that it is still very "Spanish" without the hoards of high-rise tourist blocks that can be found in other resorts.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the beach so you can enjoy the excellent facilities easily. Should you prefer to spend an evening in, the apartment boasts a spacious balcony with amazing views of the sea and the mountains so you can enjoy dinner al fresco. The apartment is well equipped with air conditioning, flat screen TV with British and European Freeview TV and also a CD/DVD player. There is also plenty of storage space and a combination safe for guests use is provided.
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Lovely clean and spacious one bedroom property with all amenities needed for a holiday let.
Location above Burriana Beach necessitates plenty of steps to and from the beach or to Nerja town centre.
Fully recommend with above caution
Great Apartment with Great Views
Very spacious apartment with a long balcony. Fully equipped we could think of nothing else we needed lots of plates, cooking pots, cups, etc etc. TV and internet if needed. Bed was very comfy and a good size. Excellent views of both sea and mountains from the balcony and only a 4 minute walk to the beach and short stroll into town. OK its up or down a lot of steps but the whole resort is very hilly so would not suit anyone who has problems using steps but for us this was a bonus as it allowed us to work off some of the ice cream we eat !!!! Would be come back YES WE WOULD. Also of note was the owner was very helpful and replied to any questions very quickly
Resort is lovely. Great food and lovely people
Apartment not suitable for anyone who can't climb a lot of stairs.
There was no cleaning cloth, no washing up liquid, only 1 toilet roll for 2 people for 1 week.
Apartment is basic and good value but the issue of collecting keys from a hotel which is on the other side of the town must be changed. We both love Nerja and have been before so we knew location of apartment was on a steep hill, but this makes it unsuitable for elderly or less fit people.
Shower very powerful although on the small side. Cheap pillows and poor fitting sheets.
View from balcony great and gets the sun from 2.00pm until 20 30pm
Thank you so much Les for your very comprehensive review. We will certainly take on board your recommendations and will see if we can improve the quality of the bedding when we are next there.
With very best wishes
Fantastic balcony with beautiful views. Great location.
Lovely apartment with everything you need for a great holiday. Balcony fantastic with views to sea and mountains. Home from home. Will definately return. Thank you.
Thank you so much for your review Carol, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and would be happy to welcome you back again in the future.
Great for sunset views
As advertised well equiped and good location for Burriana Beach and bars, town is a bit of an uphill walk but OK, try going straight up Calle Lucena and follow the road up to the main Maro road and then left for town and supermarkets, when walking that is, different for driving.
It was great to find some of the basics supplied ,or maybe left by past visitors, but it is the first apartment we have stayed in Nerja ( four so far) where there was some olive oil, balsamic and salt and pepper and other basics, pasta etc one owner actually told us everything was removed to show that the place had been cleaned ? Oh and more than one toilet roll.
Only complaint, directions not as clear as they could be, we made the mistake of taking the right hand parking just inside the gates which meant we were at the wrong steps, you need to go right to the end of the car park, and if you are coming from the beach area on the Calle Lucena you need to take a sharp right about half way up which then leads to the car park and gates, but apart from that all was good.
Thank you so much for your very positive review, I appreciate you taking the time to do so. Your comments about the directions are noted - thank you for these, I will review and update the instructions accordingly.
Best wishes, Helen
Ants in our food n large lice crawing along d walls n steps outside the apartment.
Arrived at 1.30 am - no outside lights. Was told in directions to take the first set of steps however apartment was on the 3rd set on steps straight ahead. We could not open the door as it is warped so had to walk to the nearest hotel n were lucky to get a room. It took 10 minutes for mainenance person to get d door open n he oiled d locks n cleared cement from under door. Neither Owner or Apartment Maintenance Company would refund cost. Advertised WiFi available but not so.
I'm sorry to hear about your bad experience, no-one else has reported the lice but these were on the outside so really are not in my control. I will investigate the situation with the ants and make sure the management company deal with them. The directions have been clear to all other guests and with the information pack sent through via email in advance of your stay we do also supply a 24 hour helpline to the management company who would have been happy to come out even at 1.30 to sort out the door - which they did when they were called the next day. Wifi is available and the information was also provided on the same email. I am disappointed that you had to write this review but appreciate your feedback of course.
The main Burriana beach is only a 3-4 min walk from the apartment. As well as the usual palm umbrellas and sunbeds and other facilities which are to a very high standard, the beach also boasts a huge variety of shops, bars and restaurants catering for a wide variety of tastes.
The nearest airport at Malaga is 45 minutes drive away. Taxis are available at the airport and if hiring a car, a private, locked car park is available for sole use of residents of the apartment complex.
Nerja town is just a 10-15 minute walk away and also has a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants.
There is a large variety of lovely bars and restaurants both at the beach and in town, something for every taste. On the beach plenty of watersports and activities are offered including introductory scuba diving and day cruises along the coast. Local supermarkets are accessible within a ten minute drive of the apartment or on the beach within a few minutes walk.
