Why Neil and Maxine Bartholomew chose Nerja
We had stayed in this apartment a number of times and were thrilled with the outdoor living on the terrace which gives this property another dimension and a great view of life on Burriana Beach
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is luxuriously appointed with an emphasis on relaxation. Step outside the apartment and you are part of the Burriana Beach lifestyle. When the apartment was built the construction employed very good soundproofing and high quality materials so once inside the apartment you are insulated from the outside world and we have never found noise levels to be an issue at any time Updates include a UK TV accessible 42" Smart TV, and Nespresso coffee machine Full aircon and dedicated secure underground parking
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
First class holiday accommodation.
As regular guests at Rubarsal we enjoy the tranquility of this accommodation coupled with the privacy and space on the terrace for outdoor relaxation.
Excellent ,modern well maintained apartment.
We have recently returned from a 12 night stay in this apartment and had a great time.We are a family of 4 and had plenty of room.The apartment is modern and well equiped in and excellent location in Burriana ,close to the beach and all the bars/restraunts, etc.The outstanding feature though is the very large terrace out through the patio doors which has everything you need including 2 very comfy sofas,sunbeds etc which gets sunshine from midmorning to sunset,infact we enjoyed the terrace so much that we spent alot of time on it.The owners Neil and Maxime could not have been more helpful ,Neil even gave me a list of places to go/see for a first time visitor which was very helpful.Thanks again for a very special holiday,you even arranged great weather during our stay.We would highly recommend this apartment and would like to go again in the future.Thankyou.

Wonderful Beach Apartment
Very well maintained apartment, furnished nicely, comfortable balcony with sofas and dining area.
Great beach location, it's only a few steps away from the sand, with many restaurants/bars next door (those underneath the apartment are very good).
The walk into the centre is Nerja is a little tough initially, up the parador but the view at the top is spectacular. At a nice strolling pace 10/15 mins will take you to the centre.
Just an ideal apartment for a beach holiday and Nerja itself is, to me, the best holiday location in Europe.
Many thanks for the generous feedback, much appreciated
We hope to welcome you back in the future

A truly delightful holiday home
The apartment is located a stone's throw from the beach and shops and sits in the vicinity of some good bars and restaurants.
We used the beach every day. It is a busy resort, popular with the Spaniards as well as tourists (always a good sigh); the beach is clean and well maintained.
Nerja town is in relatively easy reach on foot (if you are physically able as the walk there is uphill), bustling with cobbled streets and some very good shopping (!) and a vast choice of eateries.
The property itself is very well equipped and has an extremely 'homely' feel about it; beautifully furnished and very clean and welcoming.
The balcony is a fantastic feature, we spent a lot of time sitting outside lapping up the sunshine, dining 'alfresco' and absorbing the view.
The owner's are very helpful, making the planning and practicalities very easy.
Wardrobe space for the second bedroom is sparse, but for a family sharing, there is plenty provided in the first room for all occupants.
I would thoroughly recommend this delightful property in it's superb location, we arrived home yesterday having had a really fabulous holiday.
Excellent apartment in a fantastic beach location
Very well equipped apartment, extremely well-maintained. Wifi, Air Con and a lovely large terrace. Close to the beach, restaurants and bars and walking distance to the Balcon. Owners are extremely helpful (thank you for posting the keys to us overnight!) - would highly recommend.
We are very glad that you ebjoyed your time in Rubarsal 1F .Thank you for your kind endorsement..We hope you will come and stay again in the futureBest wishes .neil and Maxine
Property not up to a high standard
Internet: Renter must look after this themselves, not included in the rental price. Description of property as having two double bedrooms, reality, one and a half bed. Second bedroom is dark and very small. No wardrobe to hang clothes, facility only in main bedroom. Window small and looks out onto the internal building. Bedroom door does not open fully as it's blocked by the bed.
The only eating area is outside on the terrace which in winter is cold at both breakfast and dinner times. Terrace heaters insufficient at these times. Table and chairs look secondhand.
Owners not very helpful in a situation where the electricity went out in the apartment at dinner time, response time from owners was four hours after contact and essentially told us to sort it ourselves. No further contact to see what caused the outage and if we, their tenants, were ok. Luckily a kind neighbour helped us.
TV is "Free to Air" and instructions how to access this would have been helpful.
Owners state "that they have never found noise levels to be an issue" : not so, the moving around of furniture in the apartment upstairs is fairly full on and judging from the footsteps children were also present.
Finally, bizarrely the keys have to be mailed back to the owners incurring another hidden cost... I registered the letter to ensure that I had a record of returning the keys.
Summary: I would not recommend this property or the owners.
We are just 50 yards from the spectacular Burriana Beach, one of the most attractive and popular resorts on the Costa del Sol.
We are 45 minutes drive along the Mediterranean Coastal motorway from Malaga Airport, under an hour to Granada, Malaga is 15 minutes from the airport.
Frigiliana is 5 miles north, Malaga 40 miles to the West, Almunecar 20 miles to the East.
