In a lovely complex with pools, tennis & bar / restaurant, near the Arenal beach

Overview

Property

Updated: 20-Oct-2016
A 2 bedroom first floor apartment in a traditional 'pueblo' style family complex

Casa Helen is ideally situated in a quiet pedestrian walkway in this pretty garden holiday park which has a large swimming pool, a kiddies paddling pool, 2 flood lit tennis courts, a poolside bar / snackbar & a nice restaurant offering 'al fresco' fine-dining on the pool terrace. Air conditioning is available for a small extra charge. There is a dive centre adjacent and a supermarket nearby. The lovely 'Arenal' beach is close by and a bus service which runs every 30 mins will take you there in 5 minutes & can bring you back late at night. The apartment offers a nice living / dining room, with a sofabed, satelitte HD TV, DVD / CD players and a lovely cool and breezy naja terrace which looks out onto a fountain in the green peaceful walkway. There are 2 traditional Spanish bedrooms, both with built in wardrobes. These can be set up either as double or twin rooms. There is also a folding 'Z-bed'. The bathroom offers the option of a shower or bath and has a washing machine. There's a fridge/freezer, oven, halogen hob & dishwasher in the modern 'all mod-cons' kitchen. The addition of air conditioning for a small extra charge will add to the comfort and enjoyment to your stay.

AIRPORT TRANSFERS: If you don't want to drive or hire a car you can book seats on a mini-bus to and from the airport. The drop off / pick-up is at the small supermarket at the Tosalet Urbanisation, which is less than a 10 minute walk from the apartment. The total cost is €40 return. Google: 'Beni Connect Transfers'. They have a desk in the arrivals hall at the airport when you arrive. I'll give you directions to the apartment from the drop-off point or if you have heavy bags I'll be happy to pop along and meet you at the drop off point. For your return journey they will collate your time requirements with other passengers and arrange pick-up times along the coast, so you need to check (by phone) the day before your return journey to confirm the exact pick-up time. The vehicles are modern and clean and the service is good.

About the Owner

We are Paul & Helen Nicholls. We have been together for over 45 years and lived in the North West of England. Paul worked in a managerial role with a well-known car manufacturer and Helen was a head teacher. We holidayed in Javea and decided to buy pueblo style villa which we called Casa Helen at which we and our family holidayed for many years. We planned to spend a lot of time in Casa Helen once we retired, alternating between Javea and the family home in England, but we loved the Costa Blanca so much that when we retired we sold up in England and bought a villa nearby instead! We had expected our family to continue to use Casa Helen, but now they descend on our villa and stay with us. We couldn’t bear to sell Casa Helen as it has so many memories and decided to let others enjoy it by renting it for holidaymakers and it is currently managed by a family friend who’s photo you’ll see here. Many of our friends come back year after year.

Perfect Spanish home from home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Helen has everything you could wish for and more. The terrace was lovely to sit on in the warm evening. The beds were comfortable. Fab pool although lacking in sun beds we bought some which did for the amazing beach at Arenal too! Lots of fair priced restaurants on the beach and further to the harbour end (Scallops is worth a visit by the fair) Great market on Thursday, esp if you like bags! We went to aqua land, well worth the money. We had a car, but the bus stop is close. In the end we walked in to town and back as it isn't far, 20mins or so. We had a wonderful time! Thank you and would definitely recommend!

Lovely Location and perfect for a family of 3 or 4

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Casa Helen, it had everything we needed for a week including plenty of beach equipment saving us lots of money on buckets and spades! We hired a car so we had more freedom to venture out and enjoyed visiting all the different beaches along the coast. The bedroom fans were a great hit especially in the evening at bed time and helped us all to get a good nights sleep. The pool is huge! and not very busy at all and great depth for little ones too. We would highly reccomend a stay here as the place is great and the area beautiful. Thank you.

Casa perfecta y limpia para una familia de 4. Dispone de todas las comodidades necesarias para pasar unos días en la playa. En cuanto al casero una persona encantadora y dispuesta. Estuvo presente siempre que se le necesitó para asuntos menores.

Recomiendo completamente esta casa y el trato con el propietario.

Location

From the Owner

We loved the development, it being traditionally Spanish in its style. The mix of small villas and apartments in the garden setting with such a lovely pool, tennis courts, reception and restaurant facilities made the decision to buy easy. Why this particular apartment? Being on a pedestrian only walkway it was always going to be calm, quiet and safe for the children and the fountain just outside the apartment created a lovely view from the naya and we hoped that the sound or the water splashing from the fountain would be very relaxing – we were right!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Alicante & Valencia are both approximately at 90 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : is the bar at the on-site poolside at 100 Metres Nearest Ferry : is Denia at 20 Kilometres Nearest Golf : is Club de Golf Javea. It is only at 5 Kilometres Nearest Train : is at Teulada at 10 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : is junction 67 on the A7 at Teulada - approx. at 10 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : is on site at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : The 'Arenal' is 2.5kms, but Cala Blanca cove is at 300 Metres Car: recommended

Casa Helen is part of a lovely 'Toscamar' garden complex with many lovely palm and pine trees. It offers a very 'green' environment for a safe & peaceful family holiday. The complex is fully gated so you can allow your children to roam freely safe in the knowledge that they can't just wander onto the road. The large swimming pool is also fenced and gated to keep youngsters safe and there's a life guard on duty during the summer.The apartments are build in the traditional 'pueblo' style and are located in a wide pedestrian only walkway. The first floor apartment is comfortably and well equipped with a first class modern kitchen. There's a spacious living / dining room and a cool glazed 'naja' which looks down onto the fountain in the quiet walkway and its adjacent gardens.

There are 2 bedrooms which can be made-up as doubles or twins as you wish. An easy to operate sofa bed & a proper folding 'Z-Bed' allow for 6 to sleep comfortably. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The living / dining room, both bedrooms and the bathroom are heated, so it is comfortable for our winter visitors too.

The beautiful garden complex boasts a large swimming pool as well as a kiddies paddling pool. There is a (seasonal) 24 hour reception to assist you in any way they can. Enjoy the poolside bar & restaurant, relax on a lounger under a parasol with a book and have a glass of wine or a beer and some tapas while the children enjoy the pools. Or be energetic and enjoy a game of tennis on one of the complex's 2 courts which are adjacent to the pool area.

There is ample secure parking spaces inside the complex, entry to which is via secure gates opened by a remote control. There is a Dive Centre nearby and cycle hire is available locally. A very good supermarket is 10 minutes walk away and there is an Aldi nearby as well as local supermarkets at the Arenal.

When you want a sandy beach or a lively night out, a bus service – operating every 30 minutes until late at night – will, from just outside the gates and in less than 5 minutes, take you to and from Javea’s famous 'Arenal’ beach said to be 'The Jewel of the Costa Blanca'. The beach slopes gently into the warm clear waters of the Mediterranean and is excellent for young children. The Arenal has numerous bars, restaurants & shops on its long curving promenade which stretches around Javea bay. Here you will find budget or cordon bleu restaurants, bars & night-spots to suit every taste and pocket. If you want to stay out late - later than the bus runs, don't worry! It's not too far to walk and there's a taxi rank at the Arenal and being only a few miutes away it's not expensive, so no problem!

The rugged & rocky Cala Blanca beach is 10 minutes walk away. Fancy climbing the Montgo mountain? It requires no special equipment or experience and the view is awesome. Drive to the pretty Granadella beach (10 minutes) and enjoy lunch at the beachside restaurant there. Try the 'chiringhito' beach bars on the coast between the Arenal and the Port. Our favourite is Veleta.

Golfers will be pleased to learn of the Javea course as well as others at nearby Moraira and Jesus Pobre.

Take a day out and visit Denia to the north or Moraira to the south. Both are about 20 minutes away and offer beaches, restaurants and shopping as well as such things as go-karting or horse riding, both of which are also available in Javea. Or head in land to the Jalon Valley or to Benidorm to visit the Terra Mitica theme park or Aqualandia Water Park or stay in Javea and visit Javea Port with its shops, bars, restaurants and stony beach. Or the historic 'Old Town' with its medieval church and cool narrow walkways between period buildings. And shop for clothes, leather goods, shoes, fruit, vegetables, cheeses and olives at the Thursday morning market in Javea old town.

THE HEART OF JAVEA BEATS JUST AS QUICKLY ALL YEAR ROUND, SO IT'S A LOVELY PLACE FOR AN OUT OF SEASON BREAK OR SOMEWHERE TO SPEND THE WHOLE WINTER. ASK ABOUT OUR VERY SPECIAL LONG WINTER LET PRICES.
