About Mike Downes

Both owners are Nottingham based families and we purchased this property whilst under construction in 2004. We try to get out to Spain 3 -4 times a year to chill out and to continually improve the property for our own comfort and for our guests. It is a second home for us and we just love being out here!

Mike Downes purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mike Downes chose Alicante Province and Costa Blanca

The Orihuela Costa has the most stunning beaches, literally hundreds of excellent restaurants and bars and is a readily accessible destination from both Alicante and Murcia airports. It offers golf at reasonably priced courses, home from home comforts and facilities or the traditional Spanish experience if you go into the bustling coastal town of Torrevieja or the hilltop villages inland from the coast. It literally has something for everyone.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is one of few two bedroom apartments to benefit from its own private pool and beautiful terraced garden and so is an affordable luxury. The setting is a tranquil residential environment yet within 10 minutes walk is the lively and safe Villamartin Plaza. Our apartment is somewhere you can chill out in the sun during the day and then prepare for your night out wondering which of the 20+ local restaurants you will stroll to and whether your late night entertainment will be to listen to the live music in Shandon Bells, dance with the youngsters in Cafe Rock, or make you own music in the karaoke bars till the early hours. After that it is just a nice downhill stroll back to our comfy apartment - what more could you want ? Satellite TV ? - well that is thrown in as well!

Excellent well equipped apartment, short stroll to the Plaza with a wide selection of bars and restaurants.Pool is a great added bonus and is much larger than the photos show. There are some slight snagging issues in the new en suite but this does not take away from a great addition. Would highly recommend.

Excellent Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The two bedroom property is in an excellent position on a quiet urbanisation within a few minutes walk of the Plaza. Apartment has all the amenities you would expect and is in excellent condition throughout. Now has an additional shower room which is en suite to one of the bedrooms. Great value!

Very friendly, homely villa

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this place, the neighbours were friendly, the area is near to all the facilities so you can have a glass of wine with your dinner without driving. The Plaza has an array of restaurants. Swimming pool was an amazing added extra for the price, cold, but that just added to the fun:) Beaches are nearby, great shopping centre with "must have ice-cream or gelato". House was homely, beds could do with up dating..a little hard for our taste, but hey, slept well on the sun beds in the garden during the day. Overall, we loved it and would go back.

Fantastic apartment in quiet residential area.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night but that wasn't a problem for the agents, they ensured we had some electricity and clear instructions where to find the key, the apartment was spotlessly clean, with all the facilities you need, it was home from home, apart from the British weather.

The pool was larger then we expected, big enough for 4 adults on inflatables, very clean and attractive garden, plenty of seating by the pool and on the veranda.

We used the large communal pool once, which again had plenty of sun beds, which is a bonus as usually communal pools in other places of VillaMartin don't have.

A short stroll to the lovely plaza where there is lots of restaurants to choose from, also a great supermarket, not very big but has all you would need, further afield heading towards la Zena is Dialaprix supermarket, which has the best meat selections for barbecues, must try the pork kebabs, yummy.

The apartment is in a quiet residential area with great neighbours, making it a lovely community to stay in.

I highly recommend this apartment and will be returning again soon, ( already planning next trip back ) if a second shower room is added that will be a bonus to an already perfect holiday home.

Plenty of information in the folder provided, has a telly, DVD, satalite tv, but we didn't need it as spent our nights relaxing on the veranda.

One petty thing to change is the pool net, large holes so not really fit for purpose, but otherwise a great stay all round.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the kind review. We will be creating a second shower room over the winter and installing wifi now that the infrastructure has arrived at our community. And we will be replacing the pool net !!! Mike Downes

Excellent facilities and location. A must return.

  • 5 of 5

Firstly I must say the property was absolutely spotless and in excellent condition with all the facilities and equipment you could wish for. The pool is larger than you imagine and provides a superb extra rarely found in similar properties in the area. As regular visitors to Villamartin we know pools this size are rare

The location is excellent. Only a leisurely 10 minute stroll to the plaza with other bars and restaurants nearer than that.

We cannot fault this property and will return again.

Very nice apartment, I will go again!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment that is in a good location. We are very regular visitors to this area so it really suited us! The private pool is quite an asset and you also have a communal pool if you need it. It is on the ground floor with a large area so you can relax outside and use the BBQ etc. Normally with an apartment you just get a balcony.

Good Points, Good location, private pool, well equipped. The apartment was spotlessly clean and the local agents are very nice people.

Not so good points, I think the apartment is due a bit of a freshen up in terms of decor and furniture. A huge bonus would be a second WC and shower. This is fairly straight forward job and I understand is on the owners "to do" list. Please don't be put off by this as I understand the work is due to be done over this winter.

I was not a fan of the metered electricity for 2 reasons, firstly I expect the price I pay to include everything and secondly we put 10€ in and I think only used 1€ as we did not use the aircon. We filled the meter as we were concerned that we might run out whilst we were out or run out in the night. We had bought a lot of food and needed the fridge and freezer to keep working.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We do indeed plan to put in a second shower and wc and and this will take place early next spring after our winter guest has departed. Electric meters are an unfortunate reality as previously we experienced some very high bills through the aircon system occasionally being left on night and day in the hot periods even when guests were out of the apartment. We try to keep the rental price competitive for the facilities we offer and pay as you go for electricity helps us achieve this. .

The apartment is located just 4km inland from some of the most beautiful sandy beaches on the Costa's. Blue flag, supervised beaches and picturesque coves at La Zenia, Cabo Roig and Campoamor are family friendly, and a 10 minute drive from the apartment. There is a marina at Cabo Roig.


Murcia and Alicante Airports are 15 and 35 miles respectively from Villamartin. Most of the budget airlines fly to these destinations. Car hire is available from the airports or we can organise for you to be met by a driver, who will transport you to and/or from) your accommodation. Please ask for details. A car is recommended for getting about but not essential. Taxis are available at the Villamartin Plaza and the fare down to the coast is around 7 Euros.

There are inland country parks, protected coastal environments and a wide range of local activities such as ten pin bowling and the water park at Torrevieja and the Go-Karts at La Zenia.

Further Details:
