About Gunvall Slatlem

I am a married father of 3 daughters and a very young 60 something at heart. I live a 30min drive south of Oslo with my wife and youngest daughter. I started out as an ambitious football player and made the Under 21 team for Norway, but injuries put a stop to my career. I began as a teacher, but quickly realized sales was my strong suit. Today I am partner in a local real estate business and look forward to my retiring years when I can spend more time with my family and friends, travel, enjoy the outdoors (particularly cycling and skiing) and spend time near the sea both in Norway and Spain.

Gunvall Slatlem purchased this apartment in 2003

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is part of the colourful outer walls of the town, which means there are views both towards the ocean and also towards the rest of the town. We loved the space and layout, the old Spanish feel to it and the closeness to the beach, while still being in a bit up from the hustle bustle. Some friends of Ours had holidayed in the area and when we found this apartment was up for sale we decided to never look back! :) We have enjoyed countless amazing visits over the years and always look forward to coming back.

Fantastic holiday in the Old Town of Villajoyosa!

  • 5 of 5

We had 15 great days staying at this lovely house, and loved every minute of it. Especially the roof terrace was great, and we used to go up there every evening. The bedrooms have AC, and both baths are nice. There is a large livingroom, wich the kids used all the time. And its located only a 3-4 minutes walk from the lovely beach!

Thumbs up!

For us the house is on the perfect place.

  • 4 of 5

The house suited our needs.

5 minutes walk to the beach. The equipment in the house is compleet. The terrace on the top with the sinc is comfortable. The 2 bathrooms are good, with sufficient hot water. The 2 double beds are very good. However, the 2 "bedbanks" are not suitable to sleep on. After a night on one of these banks you are broken.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Thank you very much for taking the time to provide feedback of your stay at our apartment. We greatly appreciate this as it gives us insight into the pros and cons of your stay. Especially we like to see where we can improve. We are sorry to hear that you did not sleep well on the sofabeds and we realize they are not of the same standard as the doublebeds, however several of us in the family (myself aged 30 and my sisters) have slept on them numerous times and find them quite comfortable, but this is of course all down to personal preference. As we mention in our ad they are probably more ideal for children. We will be happy to post an additional comment in our ad explaining that the sofabeds are not of the same standard as the doublebeds to avoid confusion. That being said we are looking at adding a third bedroom on the living room level so as to provide more comfortable sleeping arrangements for our guests. We do hope you will consider staying with us again. Wishing you a splendid summer and thanks again for your feedback! :) Best regards The Slatlem family

The apartment is right inside the colourful old town which houses park areas, an old church, a school and cafés. The beautiful beach is only minutes away and sunbeds can be rented for more comfort. There's also several play areas for children. There's plenty of great restaurants both on the beach and up in town, serving traditional food, as well as world cuisine. With the fishing vessels docking at the marina a 10 minute walk away, seafood is of excellent quality. Worth visiting is the Valor Chocolate Factory in town. Valor has been producing since 1881 and is the largest chocolate producer in Spain. Free samples when visiting! Valor also has its own chocolate café on the main road in town. Villajoyosa offers great walking tracks along the beach and in the hills, and there are plenty of historical sights around and places to go for adventure seekers. On a rainy day why not catch the train to La Marina, a large and modern shopping centre 3 stops away. There are also markets in town.

Other Activities: Chocolate factory and museum, festivals throughout the year, spas, modern shopping center, amusement park, casino
