Overview

About the property

4/5 double beds, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8 to 10. Garden, play room & conservatory

Fabulous Detached Villa. Fantastic family holiday home, situated short walk from 4 local commercial ctrs (close enough to shops, restaurants, banks & bars, but far enough not to be bothered by noise). Built & fully furnished to a high standard with secure private parking. Overlooks the beautiful large triple communal Pool. The villa stands at a high point in this prestigious development, & so enjoys commanding spectacular views of the sea & mature greenery. It is set in it's own private, secure gardens with orange & lemon trees & kids play equipment incl. trampoline. 3 double bedrooms (master with en-suite and memory foam king size bed), plus large twin 4th bedroom, & occasional 5th double bedroom (also playroom) gives flexibility to sleep 8-10 (max. 6 adults). 2.5 bathrooms, 4 sun terraces, incl. private rooftop solarium. The villa is secure, comfortable, and is like visiting home from home. Large conservatory & patio. Walk-through video at www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ha99ZHcmTys

General: An ideal holiday for the young family with several water parks nearby, including the Aquopolis in Torrevieja.

Down the coast is the beautiful Mar Menor inland sea. Ideal for water-sports, and for taking in traditional 'old' Spain in the towns of Santiago de Ribera, Los Alcazares and Lo Pagan. A little further down is the world famous La Manga Club with its amazing golf and leisure facilities.

The newly opened Zenia Boulevard is a mecca of shopping and gastronomy. It is one of the largest and most luxurious shopping experiences in Spain, and it is just 5 minutes drive from the villa.

Nearby the traditional Spanish town of Torrevieja offers lots of facilities including a yachting marina and many and varied restaurants and bars. Also a childrens fair and street market (open every night), large Friday market and a good selection of shops. Fantastic sea front and beaches. Submarine museum too.

Also the famous (free!) mud baths are only a fifteen minute drive in Lo Pagan. Cake yourself in therapeutic mud whilst the flamingos look on bemused!

Historic Cartegena is about an hour away to the south and Alicante 45mins to the north, Orihuela and Murcia cities are 45mins inland.

There is also tennis at Villamartin, and Bowls at the Emerald Club.

Beaches: There are a wide variety of top quality beaches, all awarded the EEC Blue Flag for cleanliness and safety, all within 5-15 minutes drive. The most famous of these is Guardamar Beach with its spectacular sand dunes covered with pines and eucalyptus - the setting is one of the most unique scenes in Valencia. Locally, the sandy beaches at Playa Flamenca, La Zenia, Cala Capitain, Campoamor and Cabo Roig are a must for all sun seekers, with beach bars and restaurants, plus volleyball and children's play areas, and those all important sun beds. Most beaches have childrens play frames and equipment. Snorkelling is great at many beaches, especially Playa Flamenca. And surfing is popular too, with kids body-boarding and even serious malibu boarding. Fishing is very popular off the rocks.

Climate and weather: Obviously Spain is famous for its virtually guaranteed sunny weather all year round, with beautifully warm weather in the summer months. And there are very few rainy days between November and March, during which time you can expect blue skies and temperatures in the low to mid 20’s (tee shirt and shorts weather!). According to the World Health Organisation this area of the Costa Blanca has got the healthiest climate in Europe, and is one of the healthiest places in the world to live. Asthma and rheumatism sufferers especially will notice the benefits.

Please note:

Air conditioning - for the avoidance of doubt, the villa does NOT have air conditioning. All bedrooms are on the ground floor, which makes them naturally cooler, plus all bedrooms have ceiling fans which are adequate for most people in all but exceptionally hot conditions.

Pool - the pool is communal, not private. It is however very close by - approximately 30m - and can be seen from the rear terrace and rooftop solarium.

There is an additional Housekeeping charge. This is for the preparation of the house, cleaning & laundry and is payable directly to the housekeepers in cash (euros) on arrival, depending on number of guests or bedrooms used:

up to 4 guests / 2 bedrooms = €130

up to 6 guests / 3 bedrooms = €140

up to 8 guests / 4 bedrooms = €150

up to 10 guests / 5 bedrooms = €160

It is not optional.

About Paul Brown

We are a family of 4, with 2 boys. We bought the villa as a home from home in the sun, and as a long term investment for our retirement.

Paul Brown purchased this villa in 2004

Why Paul Brown chose Orihuela Area

When you are on holiday you want your accommodation to be at least as good as when you are at home. This gives us - and you - the luxury of a detached house with lots of space and privacy. Plus the location is excellent. There is so much to do. We have been holidaying there several times a year for many years and we never get bored!

What makes this villa unique

We spend most of our time on the rear terrace! Its such a relaxing place to be with commanding views and lots of sun. Bliss!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Good and Bad

  • 3 of 5

Positives:

Welome pack appreciated. Exterior of building very well kept. Good facilities in terms of kitchen, washer, drying screens etc. The kitchen was very clean but still had a very used and grubby sponge/scourer in the sink.

Negatives:

We were disappointed with the low standard of cleanliness. This was particularly so in both the bathrooms with dirty sealant, grubby shower screen glass and surrounds at base of shower doors. Both wash basins with long cracks and dirty sealant around both. The shower mat had debris when shaken.

Also, we were aghast to find stains on bed sheet. When getting replacement from wardrobe this too had a stain. 3rd sheet clean but did not fit bed properly. Mattress protector had hairs on it. All bedding needs replacement, as does the bathroom sealants and the rusty shower cubicle.

Dust and used tissues found when moving one of the twin beds. Debris of long-standing found between the sofa cushions.

Overall the issues of cleanliness and required refurbishment and replacement put a bit of a damper on our week. In a "luxury" villa the least we expect is fundamental cleanliness, not to say uncracked basins.

All of these points and more have been raised directly with the owner. Despite having recently appointed new cleaners just prior to my visit he has yet to get to grips with this. I am told they had done a 10 hour spring clean prior to our stay. I would not employ them if this is the case.

Owner's Response: Hi Phil, Thank you for your thorough appraisal. We rely on feedback from guests and pride ourselves on meeting or exceeding expectations. Clearly not this time! There had just been a changeover of housekeepers and I think many of the issues were due to this, and hangover issues from the previous ones who had let standards slip. I apologise for this. We too are disappointed about the cleanliness issues, and have passed on your comments to our new housekeepers - uncensored! Luckily these are easily remedied. Some of the other issues require some more substantial work. Your feedback has formed the basis of a review and refurbishment, and can assure you (and future guests) that ALL of these issues are currently being addressed. I am glad you managed to enjoy your holiday. Regards, Paul & Jacqui

Lovely location nice and central nice villa maybe as it sleeps 10 my only advice is that it needed more bedding etc as we were sharing pillows etc. Other than that really nice holiday. As I used to live there myself we were celebrating a friends 70th who lives there and own a bar in Rioja. Will book again

Lovely villa in a convenient position

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 9 days at the Villa. Paul, the owner was very helpful providing lots of information. He also left us a welcome pack of food and drink which was much appreciated. There was plenty of room for us (4 adults, and two toddlers). The pool was 2 minutes away and we spent lots of time there, even though the water was cold, the children loved it, and it was very quiet.

The villa is within walking distance of plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets. It was a smashing holiday.

Beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

From the second we walked in we were amazed, all this is for us. Well furnished and homely. All the outside space was a real bonus, the roof terrace was my favourite spot at night, cool beer, sun lounger and very hot night air. The shared pool was very quiet most of the time which made us feel it was just ours. If we all go away again (10 of us) would definitely try to book this place before looking else where.
