The villa has spacious accommodation over 2 floors with 2 double bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other with a twin beds, all furnished to a high standard. The double bedroom has access to a balcony with splendid sea views. Elsewhere in the villa you have a fully fitted kitchen including dishwasher, cooker, microwave and fridge freezer.

The property benefits from the use of the communal pool and gardens, only a few steps away.

The Gardens & The Pool: Dennis and Tina have worked wonders with the gardens and the flowers are a sight to behold during the Summer months. Bougainvillea cascades over the balustrades creating an authentic Spanish touch. In early Spring the Jasmine is also fantastic - wonderfully fragrant at night. The rear courtyard has a superb range of alfresco cooking facilities - ideal for enjoying the long barmy Spanish nights.

The pool area is housed in a secure gated environment - ideal for families. There is a small child pool as well as a full size pool for the more energetic. There are ample chairs and loungers free for you to use and to enjoy the sunshine.

Local bars and restaurants: There are a number of excellent bars and restaurants in the area. In particular there is the welcoming English bar and restaurant - The Jetset Bar - with a good range of food on the menu (including a take-away service), entertainment on selected days (see the notice board inside for details! ) the bar also as Wi-Fi. Also there is the Venta La Nuza Spanish restaurant which offers a full range of Spanish meals and tapas plus they have an English menu - well worth a visit.

Bar/restaurant Poblet by the local super market also offers a very good menu it also as Wi-Fi All of these establishments offer 'Menu del dia'. One station down on the tram will bring you to a place called Paradise where again you have a full range of bars and eateries, including a fantastic Chinese restaurant. For that special evening of the holiday why not try the five star Monteboli Hotel ala carte restaurant.

About Tina and Dennis Rainbird

Tina and Dennis purchased the villa in 2000 and have enhanced many of its features.They have worked hard to make the villa as comfortable and enjoyable as possible to ensure that everyone who stays have a brilliant holiday. It is a pleasure just to sit on the patio area having an evening meal 'Al-fresco' or simply sunbathing and taking in the sea view.

Tina and Dennis Rainbird purchased this villa in 2000

Why Tina and Dennis Rainbird chose El Campello

They chose this villa in Venta La Nuza El-Campello for its easiness to get to other Towns,Villages and Cities by car, or the scenic coastal tram that runs from Alicante city to Benidorm-Calpe - Altea Gata & Denia

The area of Venta La Nuza is very peaceful having its own sandy cove and a small harbour only one minute from the villa .

After a busy day sightseeing it is a pleasure to come back to the villa and enjoy the peacefulness and tranquility of the area

What makes this villa unique

The outside of the property offers a fabulous array of appliances for your use and to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. It is a fantastic holiday for couples or families wanting to soak up the sun, sea and sand. The tram is just behind the complex, offering easy reach to the shops. It is a quiet location and we have had lots of success in renting the property and every year we have had couples and families returning because they have enjoyed the villa so much and our aim is to make your stay as comfortable as possible because that is what matters to us

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dennis, I promise that I did try to place a report on the website but I am finding it very difficult to access the site with passwords etc. If you are able I am happy for you to upload the following;

We enjoyed a fantastic stay at Dennis and Tina’s villa in El Campello during the February half term break. The Villa was everything we could have asked for; clean and well-equipped and most importantly, right on the doorstep of the tramway which enabled us easy access to both Alicante and Benidorm. Dennis was the perfect host; he arranged to collect us from the airport and arrange our transfers as well as giving us as much detail as possible about the local area. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Thanks, Kealey

Lovely villa,home from home. Everything you need for a great holiday.

  • 4 of 5

Just come back from staying at Dennis and Tina's villa in Venta Lanuza in Spain. We were there for 17 days and had a fabuolous time. The villa is in a small gated community very close to a small beach. The villa was very well equipped with everything you need for a great and relaxing holiday. It was very clean both inside and out. Dennis and Tina were both very nice and there to give us a tour of the villa and a brief overview of the area.

We were amazed at the lovely weather while we were there and tee shirts and shorts were the order of the day,every day. The villa is approx half way between Alicante and Benidorm. As we didn't have a car we used the local Tram which runs about 50 yds past the villa. It was so very easy to use and reasonably priced. As I said the distance to walk to the Tram is litteraly, out the front door, round a corner,through the gate and up the road for 1 minute and the station is there. You can get to Alicante, Benidorm and lots of small towns and villages inbetween.

Going back to there being everything in the house there was even a shopping trolley which we used to do our weekly shop. You see the spanish with these trolleys all the time. Again we caught the Tram to a place called El Campello, where there was a supermarket across the road from the station. Did our shopping the got the Tram back again. The Tram's run every half an hour in both directions.

If I had to be negative about anything it would be that there is a bit of road noise that can be heard,however it really didn't bother us.

I would definitely go again and have no concerns about recommending the villa to family and friends.

Good house in nice place

  • 5 of 5

House is very, very good, perfect backyard with barbecue, grill and seating area, also pleasant and big sitting area in the front. Closed territory for the hoses complex. Pool is just behind the house. We were family with 2 kids (7 and 8 years old), for us house was perfect: size, interior, equipment of the house.

Beach is good, sandy and was not crowded (may be because of September) only 2 minutes walk.

Place is very quiet, and the minus that there is no food shop near, only driving by car or by tram. But there was very good restraint near the train station. Good value of money and great food.

I'd like it very much, if come to Alicante again, then definitely to here.

Fabulous Property!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely two weeks in this beautiful villa. It had everything there that we could possibly need to enjoy our holiday. The outside kitchen and BBQ area was perfect for the evenings we chose to stay home and eat "al fresco."

The pool area is lovely and very quiet.

The tram stop just behind is excellent for travelling up or down the coast. We visited Alicante, Altea, El Campello & Benidorm with complete ease.

Dennis, the owner, is very friendly & helpful.

I'd highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from 2 wonderful weeks in the sun, staying at Dennis and Tina's villa. They have thought of everything, home from home.

Very well equipped . From the transportation to and from Alicante to the finest detail for the children's safety in the swimming pool. Arm bands and rubber ring were even bought for the children. A Big thank you both. Villa is excellently positioned for beach, the tram 2 mins walk from villa

Is punctual and goes all over the coast and beyond and is cheap and air conditioned also.

Even the ticket conductor was helpful first time getting on and not having a clue where we were. if you get stuck or need advise on anything from supermarkets to doctors on site there is a lovely lady Judy , she was so kind to us. So nice to find such willing to help people.

Thank you Dennis and Tina can't wait to rebook for 2017

Situated less than a minute away from the beautiful Calanuza sandy beach and within easy walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. The location has the benefit of also being within walking distance of the popular local light railway which runs from Alicante to Denia, with stops at Villa Joyosa, Benidorm, Altea and Calpe. El Campello esplanade is 10 minutes by car.

20 minutes by car or tram takes you to Benidorm which offers shops, restaurants, nightclubs, theme and water parks and all that one would expect from one of Spain's best holiday resorts - It's got the lot!

Other Activities: Karting

Golf: The Terra Mitica golf course and theme park near Villa joyosa .
