There were several reasons why Maria, reader of, decided to renew the image of this apartment. Owned by his father and in a state of almost abandonment, he was encouraged when he discovered the coquettish accommodations that were offered for holiday stays through the internet. He had always seen the possibilities of his house, but he had never decided to transform it into a practical and cozy place for visitors to discover the town of Malaga in which it is located: Torre del Mar.
Maria decided that she would change it completely with a reduced budget. As a graphic and interior designer, a decoration lover, she restored the furniture she had, painted a lot and made covers and cushions (with her mother's help). He incorporated decorative details here and there and achieved his purpose.
Then he named it Fifth four, He created an identity, cards, guides in the area ... all to create a cozy accommodation, ready to enjoy.
A sample of how without large investments or luxuries it is possible to create a cozy atmosphere, full of charm. Discover more of its history in the gallery.
Quintocuatro is rented for holiday stays.

Before having this look so pleasant and casual, the apartment had a mixture of furniture (most of them finished in wenge tone), colors and decoration, which made it dazzle.
The posters on the sofa (futon type), the wall sconces in gold, combined with the retro white design ceiling lamp and old gold details… The set is a success.
The paintings are the work of María, who works in an advertising studio.The terrace
