About Cath Simmons
My partner and I have 5 children between us and a dog called Daisey we grew up and still live in Manchester. We love going on holiday whether it's in the UK or away and Marbella is a firm favourite with all the family, we keep coming back year after year.
Cath Simmons purchased this Apartment in 2015
Why Cath Simmons chose Marbella City Centre
This property is in the perfect location, overlooking the beach and promenade where people cycle, run, roller skate, or stroll with families stopping off for ice cream. The chiringuitos are wonderful for afternoon paella whilst the children play on the beach. The old town is our favourite, people dress up and meet with friends, and we can still get lost in the maze of side streets filled with people sat on barrels eating tapas surrounded by the cascading bougainvillea. Bliss.
What makes this Apartment unique
We fell in love with this apartment as soon as we walked in because of its lovely layout over two floors, the wonderful terrace with fantastic views allow to to sit with a glass of wine and while the day away well into the evening. The pool area is quiet and pretty and the beach is literally outside the front door. It's positioning is second to none.

Perfect Location, Stunning Panoramic Views from the Terrace
We spent several winter weeks in this modern penthouse apartment. The central Marbella location is perfect, close to the beach and the old town. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants and bars all within strolling distance, in fact most things are within walking distance. The apartment building is very well kept and was very quiet whilst we were there. Taxis are not too expensive, for example, a trip to Puerto Banús will cost you about 12 Euros.
The very large terrace equipped with sunbeds and comfortable seating is a real plus. You can spend hours staring down at the beach, the town centre, and the labyrinth of streets and roofs in the old town. In the evenings we often sat on the terrace watching the sun go down over the mountains whilst enjoying a G&T. You will need to make sure that small children are always properly supervised on the terrace, it’s a long way down.
The apartment itself was clean and well equipped, with fast internet, UK TV, and Apple TV (make sure you have your login details with you if you want to take advantage of services like Netflix or Amazon Prime). The bedrooms and bathrooms were well equipped with towels, hairdryers etc. We were particularly pleased to find that the beds were so comfortable.
The owner Cath was super-fast to respond to any queries, and we are hoping to return next year.
Thankyou for a lovely review and I’m so glad you had a great stay ( with fabulous weather )
This is a great penthouse rental on two floors with a lift. It has a wonderful terrace off the living room (many places in Spain have stairs to get to the terrace which makes carrying that cup of tea/glass of wine harder!). We enjoyed many sunsets from the terrace.
The apartment has a well equipped kitchen including small thoughtful extras like salt, flour, olive oil, tea lights and sugar.
Lots of English channels on the TV. Very comfy bed upstairs, with great view of the moon over the mountains. Wonderful to have secure parking in the basement of the building.
Amazing location. Right on the promenade walk along the sea and the old town was across the street with its wonderful maze of streets. Good grocery stores nearby. You don’t need a car unless you want to go out of town. 5 star rental!!
Cath was very responsive to any questions we had. Locally Peter was great with our orientation when we arrived. We had a lovely stay!
Thankyou for a wonderful review Alan so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the wonderful views from the terrace, we hope to see you both again soon.
Fantastic penthouse apartment in a perfect location
Only negative was on day of departure checkout was 10am, our pick up wasn't until 7pm and there was nowhere to leave our cases and we were not allowed to use the pool area. We therefor had to book into a hotel for 1 night in order to have somewhere to leave our cases and have a shower.
Hi Lesley, sorry about your last day, use of the pool and showers should not have been an issue for you. There are not many who rent out in the apartment block so it’s not like a hotel where there is a storage room for luggage. My apologies once again.
Perfect location. Beautiful Terrace.
We have just returned from a fantastic relaxing 10 night stay. The location for us couldn’t be better, outside the door is the ‘prom’ on the beach, which we walked along every day. Even walking to Puerto Banus one day which took just over 2 hours with a few stops for drinks. We then used the catamaran to return. On the other side of the apartment is the start of the ‘old town’ where we eat every night, except for one night when we got a taxi for 15 euros each way to Puerto Banus. The apartment has everything that you need for a relaxing stay. My favourite being the terrace where we spent a lot of time. It is very large and there is enough seating to choose whether you want to be in the sun or not which kept everyone happy. The WiFi was excellent. There is a supermarket round the corner. We felt really safe in Marbella, going for a run early morning was lovely and you pass many others doing the same. Communication with Cath was faultless and the property manager Peter (Marbella) left his contact details if we had a problem but we didn’t need to contact him. We are hoping to return again next summer.
Stunning views, relaxing, everything is walking distance!
When I saw this property, I fell in love with it! It was perfect for our family trip to Spain, and had something for everyone. Without a doubt, the place we enjoyed the most was the terrace! However, we took advantage of the pool, the beach and all it had to offer, dinners in Old Town Marbella, the catamaran ferry to/from Puerto Banus, and relaxing at sunset! Cath and Peter (who assisted us at arrival) were wonderful to work with, and assisted with all of our questions. I only hope we can make it back to visit again! Many thanks for sharing your beautiful property with us!
Perfect location with superb views
The apartment was perfect for our short break celebrating a family wedding; a good location for both the Old Town and the beach front. A couple of minutes walk for the supermarket and the many restaurants and bars. The apartment is modern, comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The roof terrace is superb; spacious and fabulous views; we spent much of the day enjoying the sun on the loungers ! Cath was very responsiveness right from our initial contact and very helpful in answering our many questions. Storm from the local management company was also very helpful for the key handover on arrival. Would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.
Thankyou for a lovely review and recommendation.
Directly outside the apartments is a beauty salon and shop to hire bikes, the 'old town' with its quaint whitewashed streets and beautiful orange square, with alfresco dining is a couple of minutes walk away. You'll find an abundance of boutique shops,restaurants and tapas bars filling the tiny streets and opening up into wonderful courtyards with churches and chapels. As you step outside the apartments onto paseo maritimo you pass a beach gym and numerous chiringuitos (beach bars), mouthwatering tapas bars, restaurants,pedalos and an 8 screen cinema in the shopping centre as you stroll towards Puerto Banus. The bustling marina has yachts, fishing boats, a ferry to Puerto Banus and lots of bars to meet friends or just sit and watch the world go by as the sun sets, it's the perfect place.
