Im so very behind on this review since we stayed from Sept 1-12, 2014 - better late than never I hope!
The condo/apt was fantastic - it was absolutely everything advertised and more. The veranda in the front, washer and dryer setup, everything was perfect in a nice and comfy space - we felt very comfortable and at home.
Javier was kind enough to show us around the area on the first day, along w/suggestions for amazing nearby eats - most everything was walking distance, including the beach and the train station.
The place was secluded enough from the heavy tourists, but close enough to everything we needed to make a comfy stay. We happened to go when it was super hot, Javier made sure the A/C was in working order and did the best he could w/the internet (it wasn't working anywhere at the time, even the nearby hotel!). We ate at some AMAZING places - Alamo 49 was really spectacular - I still dream about the papas fritas con chorizo, you would too. Out of this world good. Shamba on the beach stood out for amazing anchovies cooked by indirect heat on fire (everywhere along the beach) as well as their amazing calamari (ask for pepper and onion salad to go with it, it just works) and we walked further and surprisingly enough found a really amazing chinese food place (I was craving spicy), but their food was really good - and Ive had amazing Chinese food. Take the train into the nearby city and do the bike tour - really informative and gives you a good feel for the city and where things are. And its easy to do from Javier's place, Javier was also really informative about recommendations on sights and anything else Malaga and Spanish and eager to share his wonferful country and culture - he was a very attentive host without being intrusive - couldn't have asked for a better host.
We hope he'll come visit us and San Diego sometime" so we can repay the wonderful hospitality he showed us :)
