No. 102 is classified in Costa Natura as an A2 apartment, a sitting room with kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom. Total area 27 sq. m. Plus 27 sq m of terrace, which is three times larger than the standard Costa Natura terrace. The bedroom is separated from the sitting room by a curtain only.

There is a lower terrace, 100% private, and a large partially private upper terrace. The apartment and the lower terrace are not overlooked at all, complete privacy is assured. There are five steps down to the entrance, and eight steps up to the large terrace; regrettably there is no disabled access.

What you get! Most apartments in Costa Natura offer a letting option where the owner’s best things are put away, at 102 what you enjoy in summer we enjoy in winter. The under-bed storage is not locked but available for your suitcases as well as home to the sun lounger and garden seat covers. There are just two small locked bedside tables where sheets and pillow cases are stored.

The sitting room includes a 6-panel original watercolour entitled “Window Shopper” by the renowned Irish modern artist, Kirsten Glass, (www.kirstenglass.com), her paintings are included in the world famous Saatchi collection. Kirsten’s studio is in Central London and she is a personal friend.

The paint finishes are “Farrow and Ball”, Ringwold Ground for the walls and Lulworth Blue for the kitchen cupboards. The laminate floor has been chosen to represent a slightly bleached look, as if by the sun, and the main lighting is on dimmers to reflect your changing moods. The bathroom was renovated in 2006 and has not been altered this time, it has a shower, hand basin, bidet, heated towel rail, wardrobe with full length mirrors, and the overall impression is of blue mosaic.

The 2012 renovation of 102 was carried out by “Jose el Antequirano” (www.construccionesjoseelantequerano.com). Our plans and technical requirements were created by Manuel Fontiveros, Technical Architect, ( www.mftecnico.com ). We were impressed with the efficiency and workmanship of both and totally recommend them. The underfloor heating was supplied by UK Company “Warmup” (www.warmup.co.uk), who have a representative on the Costa del Sol.


Welcome to our paradise beach house, “El Jardin Secreto”.  On this web site you will not find details of Andalucia, Costa Natura, or naturism generally, but there is a page of links to more information if you require it.  No.102 is almost unique at Costa Natura in offering privacy near ground level in an enclosed environment; whilst at the same time having a front line sea view. It is not an apartment, but rather a semi-detached bungalow with its own gated entrance.

It was completely renovated in 2012 including a new power feed and wiring, underfloor heating for winter, two station air conditioning, a kitchen that includes a full oven, microwave, dishwasher, and washing machine; all new furniture, a new king size bed (150×190), and enough power sockets for the most wired-up visitor. The accommodation is primarily for two adults, but a single child or teenager can be comfortably accommodated on the sofa-bed in the sitting room.

Our personal thoughts. We would like you to enjoy yourselves, to respect our investment, and to come back year after year; so we don’t have too many requests. We only ask that you read the “instruction page” (link) before you arrive, take care of our investment, and use the bed a lot, (it’s what holidays are for). We have a minimum rental period of 7 days, and a constant changeover day of Thursday to Thursday in order to maximise our summer return, but we can be flexible.

This web site’s purpose is to provide pre-booking information, contact with the owner, and instructions for all the installed equipment!
