Overview

About the property

Moraira "The Jewel in the Costa Blanca". Pool, spa, private west facing terrace

Puesta Del Sol is situated in the lively yet sophisticated town of Moraira with no high rise or resort hotels. There is a good range of bars, restaurants (everything from budget menu of the day to top quality international cuisine) and individual shops.

There are two supermarkets nearby including Pepe La Sal (200m away) which has excellent meat and fish counters, a bakery, a good range of drinks and self service fruit veg and herbs.

The apartment is set in the beautiful secure complex of Moraira Club, is comfortably furnished and the 65sq meter enclosed private terrace is well set up for outdoor living. It has an awning to provide shade on hot summer days.

There is a good modern kitchen with everything you will need from a dishwasher to a coffee machine, an open plan living/dining area, a double and a twin bedroom, family shower room and an en suite bath/shower room with bidet. The master bedroom and sitting room both open out onto the terrace.

The apartment has hot and cold air conditioning. Also underfloor heating in both bathrooms.

The bedrooms and sitting room have electronically operated shutters.

Parking is available immediately outside the property.

The landscaped gardens boast a shared 20 by 15 metre pool with a spa area and there is a raised seating area by the pool ideal for watching the beautiful sunsets. Generally the pool is not busy.

Free Wi Fi is available in the apartment.

The lovely sandy beach in Moraira is safe for swimming and has a fun beach bar.

If you walk along the coast you will find other charming beaches.

Connections to Moraira from Alicante airport are easy. Car hire is inexpensive or you have the option of taxi or a regular bus service. The bus drops you a short distance from the apartment.

All bed linen is provided as are bath and beach towels. There are no hidden extras in our price structure and we are confident that we offer great value for money.

Puesta Del Sol has everything you need for a great holiday on your doorstep but if you choose to travel around you will find other costal towns nearby and charming villages inland. Suggested trips include waterfalls at Algar, beautiful iris and rose gardens, Terra Mitica theme park, Aqualandia water park and Mundo Mar and a large shopping centre at Ondarra. Jalon with its quirky Saturday flea market. Not forgetting Moraira's own market on a Friday morning.

About karen pickles

I am John Pickles are retired chartered accountant with a passion for swimming. My first trip to Moraira was in 1963 and I have loved it ever since. I met my wife Karen on the beach at El Portet in the 1980's. We spend about half of the year in Spain at our inland property doing lots of work on our land. We grow table grapes, almonds and other fruit. We spend a good deal of time in Moraira enjoying the friendly cosmopolitan atmosphere and visiting other friends who also live in town.

We spend the rest of the year in the Channel Island of Guernsey.

karen pickles purchased this apartment in 2015

Why karen pickles chose Moraira

We have bought this lovely flat in 2016 as we fell in love with it at first sight. It had not been occupied until then and we have fully fitted it - so everything is new. Mainly, we love the gardens and the short walk to Town.

Truly beautiful apartment perfectly located......

  • 5 of 5

The owners description of " an oasis set in beautiful gardens " was not wrong! What a beautiful apartment. It is situated minutes from the Harbour area and the beach front.

It does have that home from home feel, with everything that you need for a beach holiday to be found in the apartment. It was spotlessy clean and the kitchen contents were to a high standard. The quality of the towels were wonderful including the beach towels.

Now, the beds! On my, I have to say the beds were seriously comfortable for a holiday rental. Absolute joy to get into bed, the sheets were of good quality and the pillows.......

We made great use of the terrace area. All of our meals we had at the apartment , we had out on the terrace. Loved having our early morning breakfast out there, chilly but nice.We used the loungers for late laternoon drinks and read books whilst the children rested watching the english channels on the TV. Previous comments have mentioned the noise but really it is backround noise, it did not affect us at all. Watching the sunset over the mountains before heading out for the evening was nice too. Again, its all about location.

The pool area was a lovely area and very well maintained. A great little chill out spot.

John and Karen were great communicators before our arrival and Karen kindly met us to let us in. Thank you both for allowing us to experience the wonderful town of Moraria in such a great apartment. We loved every minute and as you know we are coming back!

Fantastic stay in a 'gem' of an apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located within easy walking distance to Moraira town. It is beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable and so very well kitted out with everything. The pool and communal gardens are also very well looked after. Having holidayed in Moraira for many years now and having stayed more often in villas we have so enjoyed our stay in this apartment that we have already rebooked for next year. We would have no hesitation in recommending this lovely apartment to anyone! Thank you John and Karen

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

the apartment is ideally situated 2mins walk from the centre of Moraria. It was very clean and well maintained. We were a couple but it would be ideal for a family as well. John and Karen were very easy to deal with and very helpful throughout our stay.

the information pack was simple to understand and informative.

Huge terrace to lounge around on and got the sun nearly all day. pool area was beautiful and wonderfully maintained ideal for any age.

we would wholeheartedly recommend a stay with John and Karen and this area of Spain is quiet simply stunning......a world away from the noise and pace of other parts of this coast line. Excellent 5 star rating without hesitation.

We can't rate this apartment highly enough.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is well equipped with everything you need and more. It felt like home to us. The pool is stunning and didn't get very busy. The location is perfect with everything on your doorstep. Moraira is a gorgeous little town with some wonderful restaurants and bars. The Asian star Indian restaurant served the best Indian food we have ever had. Saxo bar has a lovely chilled vibe. The beaches are lovely especially El Portet. If you book this apartment, you won't be disappointed. Thanks to John Pickles for great communication throughout.
