I received the best gift for my Birthday… My New Home…

The front entrance… actually no 23…

Looking up from the garden…

Tom and I had planned a whole 6 months to find our next home, the place we could nurture ‘us’ for the next part of our journey… We arrived a couple of days ago in Benalmadena… A place my father and sister told us about… and loved to visit… So of course we had to come and visit and see for ourselves what Benalmadena was all about… Last year in fact we came for a weeks golfing holiday… We were very impressed, not that we visited much of the big town…just the marina… a place we liked and could see ourselves living in… swaying among the yachts in the harbour…

Anyway we are here again… and just to make sure Benalmadena was the place for us, we travelled further down south to Estapona and travelled back up checking out all the towns in-between Estapona and Malaga.. making sure we weren’t missing out on anything…  It took us one day, arriving back in Benalmadena… Tom took a wrong turn on one of the roundabouts and passed a lovely piece of rugged coast and apartments… I was quite busy telling him… ‘this is the wrong road’… but looking at the apartments I saw the buildings were called… Santa Maria…

Later that evening we ate at a lovely Italian restaurant, with my dad, who had joined us here for his holiday.. and saw the sun set… we took pictures of the lovely apartments that were here on the marina… This is where we wanted to live… Benalmadena and in particular the marina…

Early next day, we made our way to the local real estate office… and asked to be shown apartments available at the marina… She had one available and could show us that afternoon… together with another apartment just down the road on a beautiful part of the beach… it was called Santa Maria… My ears pricked up and I just knew that we had to see it… (I had seen and heard this name come to my attention for quite a while lately…)

The apartment we saw at the marina was lovely… but the apartment at the beach was the one for us… My wish was for a garden, a pool, near the beach and sea, a bath in the bathroom, big kitchen and rooms and a grand balcony… It ticked all my boxes…

and what do you know… this apartment was on the road that Tom accidentally took yesterday… the apartments Santa Maria…

I trusted that, as always my wishes would be/are granted… by myself… by the universe… I know that to TRUST… brings everything together…

Here are our pictures… enjoy…. IAM so happy… happy… happy… it is my birthday and my gift to myself… a new home for tommy and me to expand, to be at peace… to explore….

Thank you Sue… It was such a wonderful time, I just loved the journey, the many wow factors… that actually exhausted me… back home now to slowly close down the old life and begin a new part… so exciting… Barbara

OMG this is soooo exciting! I am really really happy for you and your husband! And the views… To die for 🙂
I envy you on waking up every morning to the sounds of waves, sunshine on your face, looking at the wideness of seas. (I am a child of oceans and to oceans my body shall return 🙂
I explored once the area around Malaga and didnt love it so much but you have found a hidden gem. What a great birthday gift.
Wishing you the best new life everin your new home xox
