We have stayed at this property on numerous occasions, and its always a case of booking a holiday around the dates its available rather than book time off then see if we can stay there. As a family, Arroyo De La Miel is our ‘happy place’ and this property is our ‘happy home’ My wife and I have three grown up kids (26, 22 & 20) and as soon as we mention Benalmadena and "the Arroyo house", we know we will have a full family booking for the holiday. It is clean, spacious, well equipped, air conditioned and set in a block of circa 30 houses with a shared swimming pool. During the week we’ve always found that on most days the pool is our own, and at weekends, the local Spanish residents, ex pats and other holiday makers socialise around it with their families. Everyone is friendly and we have always been made to feel welcome, we have always felt that if you respect the community the community will respect you. My wife loves the fact there is a washing machine, as we always go home with a case of clean clothes. Dishwasher, microwave, oven, fridge/freezer so it really is home from home. The house is located up a hill so walking into town is great downhill but it can be a struggle walking up it if you have any mobility issues. However, there is an abundance of cabs outside the train station in the town center and 6 euro will see you home safe and well. There is also a bus stop around the corner from the house and the ‘Welcome Folder’ provided at the property gives plenty of information on the local travel options. We tend to hire a car for the period of our stay as we like to travel around the area, and parking is available on the local streets. However, be mindful of yellow lines and local residents to ensure you are parked correctly and not blocking driveways upsetting the locals. Arroyo is packed with restaurants, shops and bars so you’ll never find yourself hungry or thirsty. There are also plenty of supermarkets in the area so the fridge can be stocked with the basics for the duration of your stay. We tend to have breakfast at home, then eat out each evening. Prices are good and there is a great atmosphere in the town center. If you feeling in the mood for a walk, its roughly half hour downhill to the beach, and only circa 10 euro for cab home. Again the beaches at Benalmadena are packed with restaurants, gift shops and bars, Palm 5 Beach Bar being our favourite hang out spot. Cold drinks in a beach front bar watching the world go by – what’s not to love! So in summary, a lovely, well equipped, clean property in a lovely Spanish residential area with plenty to see and do. Book it and you wont be disappointed. Simon, Joanne, Jordan, Ben & Ellen-Marie.
We made our booking (myself and husband and our 5 children).. Originally planned to have my parents with us but they couldn't make it... I have to say... Jason.. Eveline are absolutely exceptional! I spoke with Jason over the phone (now a new friend I like to think).. Eveline deals with the online part but she is very much as important with the whole booking... Every little details we as holiday renters actually don't think about they have covered honestly even as a frequent renter of holiday home's they topped everything... The home.. Wow.. OK.. So you've seen the pictures... Honestly they do not do the home full justice... The kitchen is alot wider and bigger than it looks and has everything and I mean everything... Even an ice slicer!!!! The lounge /dining again is wider and the furniture in the home is of a very high standard... Bedrooms/Bathrooms.. I called them 1 2 3/4.. Youll see from the photos to which I refer too... So bedroom 1 I call this the master bedroom.. Fitted elegant wardrobes (lots of hangers and a safe that you can use)... Large full bathroom toilet shower over bath and bidet and sink... And a mirror always. Plus for us girls.. But there is a very large mirror on the wall opposite the bed so no struggles as we women always want to check ourselves.. We do...has air conditioning unit and ceiling fan.. Also a little patio/terrace area where you can see the back drop of mountains but also across to the town... Bedroom 2 twin room.. The picture doesn't do this justice at all... Very large room... More than enough space to walk around each bed.. Fitted wardrobes and chest of drawers... Also has a fold out chair (my girls loved this).. Fan on ceiling ( my only suggestion which I am told the owner is going to look into doing is this room doesn't have air con.. So air con in and wow what a room) again this is a huge room.... Bathroom to this bedroom is outside the room... Toilet sink.. Overhead shower on half bath... Mirror again spot on. Bedroom 3/4... Another master slightly smaller than what I class the main master BUT... This has a double bed I actually think it is bigger than your standard doubles... Fitted wardrobes and a full bathroom.. And mirror!! Also this room has a terrace/balcony... Now the 4th part when you enter the room it's quite amazing... There is a room open to that main room but with a further 2 beds in... My kids loved it!!! Our eldest slept up their as did my 2 other girls on and off.. The owners put in a stair gate for me as we have a just turned 2 yr old which was very much appreciated.. The patio/terrace from the lounge area is a sun trap!!! This is where you can also access the communal pool... Toledo when the sun gets too hot... Table and chairs for 6 and sun loungers also available which we were able to have 3 of the loungers and the table and chairs and could still move around... There is a small terrace at the front with a table and chair's which was handy when cooking or in the evening when it was cooler... The communal pool is very clean... You will actually see the chap every day out and about cleaning the tiled paths to the pool... So you know it's going to be clean... I would without doubt recommend this home to any family.. Families... The home easily accommodates 9 people and you don't feel like you're on top of one another at all... The area is quiet... And easily you can walk into arroyo and benalmadena... We did walk a few times back and forth... But you can also get a bus or Uber or rent a car.. Personally we felt we didn't need to have a car all the time it just depends on yourselves... I have one last piece to say... We cannot wait to go back to this home so if summer is gone.. You know we have booked it..
We were delighted to see this property re-listed for holiday lets again. It’s our 3rd time staying at this super house as we like it so much. The house is always spotless, it’s spacious and it is in a great location. We also love the pool area , (the picture on the web site doesn’t do it justice). It also worked out at good value for money given the amount of people in our group. We also love the area of Arroyo/Benalmadena, so much so, we have had our last 8 holidays there. There is plenty of places to visit, loads of fab restaurants, tapas bars and nightspots and lots to do and see for everyone The hosts are fantastic, and nothing was too much trouble, Jason and Eve were always quick to respond to any queries and the literature and information they supplied was brilliant. Would recommend this house and destination to anyone anytime.
