Perks for the Parents

This 4-bedroom home with a green garden and a lap pool is a 4-minute stroll from the nearest beach and around 15 minutes’ drive from the heart of Málaga. Bright and spacious, and set in a relaxing neighborhood, the house has great play spaces for kids, unique design and plenty to do within a short walk, with restaurants, cafés and ice cream shops along the seafront promenade. You could spend weeks here with no need to drive: everything is at close hand, including a supermarket, grocery shop and fresh food market. The house also has a workspace and a basement gym.

Why Kids Love it

There are plenty of toys and books to amuse kids under 4 in this house, where the main attractions for kids are the garden and the beach. There is a playground on the beach and another one set in a nearby square. For babies and toddlers, there is a high chair and a kid-size bed next to the main master bedroom bed and at the same level, with a baby bath available on request. There is a public library some 3 minutes’ walk from home with a children’s section. The restaurant and café area in the seafront promenade is very safe with kids as there are no roads nearby.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 days. There are stair gates and you should have the kitchen door wedged open to avoid children pinching their fingers. The pool is fenced and children should be supervised in and near it. A cleaning service is available during your stay for an extra fee. The house has beautiful design and some areas need special care from visiting guests: the dining and kitchen tables are of solid wood and no hot objects should to be placed on top of them without isolating protection; the first floor has a wooden floor that is very sensitive to water spills, and has to be dried instantly. Car rental is not essential: there is a bus stop 2 minutes away and all lines take you downtown in about 15 minutes. A taxi ride downtown costs about €8.

About the Location

The residence is in the Pedregalejo neighborhood of Málaga, a former fishermen area around 15 minutes drive to the west of the city center. While still within Málaga city, it is a very tranquil and relaxing area known among locals for the beach and its fresh fish restaurants. A seafront promenade runs almost all along the Málaga city coast from the home to downtown. It is a very pleasant walk (about 40 minutes), bicycle ride (20 minutes) or drive (10 minutes). Málaga Airport is around 20-30 minutes away by car.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom, 3-floor detached garden house includes a ground floor with large kitchen, separate laundry area, large living room with a fireplace and a dining room, a studio with 2 desks and a bathroom. On the first floor there is a master bedroom with a kingsize bed, an ensuite dressing room and ensuite bathroom. A children’s bedroom with a single bed shares a bathroom with another bedroom with a queensize bed. There is a further bedroom with a queensize bed and ensuite bathroom, plus a linen closet. The basement has a small gym and storing area and a machine room. There is also a private awning-covered parking area for a big car or 2 small ones.

Style Notes

Scandinavia meets Spain. This gorgeous house has high ceilings and neutral colors throughout, bringing a flavor of Nordic style to classic Spanish antiques. The eclectic decor includes some 70s furniture, earthy colors and natural materials, plus soft warm light sources to make it cozy and welcoming. A white slipper bath makes bath time fun, while leafy plants and sliding doors bring the outside in. Geometric tiles on the kitchen floor add color while in the living room, ethnic masks hang on the wall for a unique well-travelled feel. We love the garden, the space and light, and the attention to detail in every object and every piece of furniture in the home.

It was a wonderful experience The house is huge and full of books and toys for the kids. It has a big spacious garden which is lovely. They are in the process of putting a swimming pool in so it will soon be even better. It is in a very nice area of Malaga; a 3-4 minute walk to the beach and cafes/ bars/ restaurants. A good supermarket is very nearby and an excellent playground for kids about 15 mins walk away. I think Malaga is often overlooked by tourists who fly in and then drive to somewhere else on Costa Del Sol; its a nice city and the area of the house is particularly nice and laid back. It is very much a local residential area so you feel more like a local than a tourist. It makes a great winter destination. We were there in mid December and got blue skies and warm sunshine every day - a perfect escape from cold, grey London. Homero was very kind and helpful and his friend Joaquin who let us into the house was also very nice. They both speak perfect English Muchas Gracias Homero; I hope that we will come back soon

Malaga, Spain

Sunshine and sardines by the sea

From luxury villas in the hills to atmospheric narrow streets in the old town, Málaga is more than the capital of the Costa del Sol. Discover tapas bars in the historic center before walking around the new port to La Malagueta beach for sardine by the sea. Take the kids to the Picasso Museum for special children’s tours and workshops, and visit the Alazaba fortress and castles for views and a dose of history. Then lay back and enjoy the sunshine...
