The apartment was nice, with a big terrace. The layout of the apartment was nice with sliding doors out to the terrace both from the living room and the bedroom. Hard beds with blankets, not duvets. And the curtains a bit worse for wear. And yes, the toaster was of a kind I thought authorities had forbidden since 1949, but here it was, and it looked brand new - the kind with "open" elements, very dangerous. The kitchen space was small, hardly any workspace and there were few contacts. So had to put the waterboiler to one side and balance it near the sink, while the coffee was "gurgling" in the perculator. The toaster then used near the sink too, with caution of course, but.... this needs improvement. (so not 5 dots here, and I give 4 because of the friendly service + location)
10 minutes walk to the town center, be prepared for a couple of steep hills. But once they are "over and done with", one is practically in the center.
Ask in advance if there are basic things like pepper and salt, coffee filters, some teabags, etc. Our apartment was totally empty. As usual in rental homes we had to buy a spatula and some other small kitchen utensils. I mean they had a slotted spoon but no spatula. There were 3 fryingpans, 1 big and 2 small.
We bought pepper, salt, oil, etc. We have rented many places, so a few things go in the suitcase as standard: lemon press, garlic press, coffee filters for the first few days,. a sharp allround knife and those ice cube bags (these are common in Norway, at least)
The staff was so friendly. We mentioned to Gustavo that it would have been smart with some hooks in the small hall, and after less than 2 hours, a carpenter came and fixed a small shelf with some hooks! Until then, we had coats and stuff on a sort of bench in the living room itself.
The bathroom was ok and spacious enough, with a working shower (not a given) - but only 1 slim, glass shelf for our stuff. It would have been nice with more shelves.
Burriana Beach feels like a small mini village on its own. I preferred this to the town center, although Nerja is small and cosy.The beach is big, it is so nice. We were there in November and felt like we had the beach to ourselves. It was us and one psc. of Chinese masseuse who turned up from nowhere (do they smell tourists from miles away... or sit in some tower with binoculars...?)
On the roof there was a small pool and sun chairs allotted to each room - smart! (No fights then..)
I can recommend the place. There are 2 ok restaurants there too, a tapas place and another one run by Belgians, a more French-style restaurant - very good, with excellent mussles.
