About the property

Villa in Javea, Costa Blanca - Peaceful Location With Outstanding Country Views

Villa Marisa is situated on the side of a gentle hill, 3 kms from the beach and town and 4 kms from the golf course. It stands in a large garden with a superb 10 x 5m pool (underwater lighting) within a walled terrace which basks in sunshine until evening. A fully glazed terrace is furnished with dining table and chairs, as well as a cane suite. By the pool, a built-in barbecue offers an alternative means of cooking for the alfresco enthusiast and a lawn provides an additional area for play and relaxation. The accommodation is on one level (although there is a garage and a car port beneath the villa) and comprises a spacious beamed lounge with stone fireplace containing a wood burning stove. Satellite television, DVD player and video are provided. The lounge is separated from the dining area by attractive stone arches. The kitchen, recently refurbished, is large and well equipped and beyond the kitchen door, there's a pergola style patio that provides an alternative dining area.

An amazing villa in a beautiful location. The best we have stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Anne was extremely helpful from the start, we were provided with all the information regarding her home before we left. From the second we opened the door it really was a home from home until the moment we left. Anne has made this villa stunning with everything you could possibly want, available. The pool area was immaculate and the gardens were gorgeous. Having driven from Newcastle England it was the perfect place to relax after such a long journey. The weather was regularly in the 40's with beautiful warm night and the air conditioning in the bedrooms made it perfect for sleeping. The lounge is beautiful and comfortable and the kitchen was also perfect with everything you could possibly need. The bedrooms and bathrooms as everywhere else were also beautiful and immaculate. You can see a lot of thought had been put into everything to make a perfect stay.

We have stayed in many villa in Javea over the years and this is by far the best!

I would highly recommend this villa and we will certainly be asking to return, maybe via plane next year!

Thanks again Jan, Tony and family.

Owner's Response: Jan and Tony, thank you so much for your high praise - we're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Marisa and the greatest compliment guests can pay is to want to return. We do spend a great deal of time at the house ourselves and are forever planning improvements here and there. We believe it's important not to stand still and we know that those who do return are keen to see what we've done since their last visit. And, yes, having driven back and forth in the days before cheap(ish!) flights, I would definitely recommend spending more time at the villa and less in the car en route from Newcastle!!

Excellent villa in an excellent location. The pictures do not do justive to this villa.

  • 5 of 5

From first contact with Anne in relation to booking the villa, everything went smoothly. Great communication with Anne.

What to say about the Villa Marisa. could use multiple descripives but all I will say is book this villa and see for yourselves. it's everything you will want for living away from home.

My family and I were out there for a family wedding, and it proved to be just the right place for us to support my daughter.

If Anne will have us my family have already said they would love to book it again.

Many thanks Anne for letting us use your home from home.

The Lucas family.

Highly recommended villa

  • 5 of 5

Firstly can I say that Anne (the owner) is extremely helpful We were staying in another villa the week before and Anne looked it up for us to give us directions to her villa. The communication between myself and Anne was very pleasant and informative. The villa is amazing it felt like home from the moment we walked in, relaxing. Whilst we were there the weather hit 39c and the shaded eating area was most welcomed, and the air conditioned bedrooms were fabulous. The pool area is is spacious and the pool itself well maintained and clean like the villa.It is about 5 mins drive to Arenal and 30 mins walk.

Owner's Response: Sue and family Many thanks for submitting that lovely review of your stay at Villa Marisa which we really appreciate. Each year in the "off" season, we consider what improvements we can make to the property, both inside and outside and we always hope that people are going to enjoy all that we have to offer there. 2016's undertaking was a total overhaul of the swimming pool and its surrounds. We were very pleased with the result and hope all of our guests will be as happy with their holiday as you were. Anne

The villa was first class with everything you would need to have a great vacation.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very helpful prior to our arrival answering several questions we had. The villa was extremely clean and tidy when we arrived with goodies left in the fridge for our first cup of tea. The villa is well appointed and the pool is very inviting, especially when returnng from a hot trip out. Wifi is provide but it is very patchy throughout the property. We had a great 10 days and would book this property again as it is situated in a lovely area and for us was a nice quiet relaxing place to stay.

Owner's Response: Dear Richards family, We're really pleased that your stay at Villa Marisa lived up to expectations so that you could enjoy your holiday to the full. Sorry the WiFi was less than 100%. It is patchy, as you say but it's much the same across most of Javea unfortunately. There's a Facebook forum called 'Javea Connect', frequented mostly by Javea residents & umpteen posts appear on it with people whining & moaning about unreliable reception. Can't have everything it would seem! Best wishes, Anne Q

Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a quiet location, well equipped and to a high standard. It has a large well maintained garden and a nice pool with good views. During a very hot July the air conditioning in the bedrooms worked well, although we did find the lounge got a bit warm in the evenings.

The main Javea beach is close by. Valencia and Benidorm (where there are adventure/water parks) are both about an hour away by car. There were plenty of good restaurants and supermarkets in the area.

We didn’t have any problems with the villa, but the owner was helpful and maintained good communications.

Strongly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Clare. We're really pleased you enjoyed your holiday, despite 3 or 4 days of torrential rain towards the end of your stay! Writing from Javea today, I can tell you that it's gorgeously hot and sunny again now. We don't know El Chamizo in Moraira but will try to find it and give it a go before long. Kind regards, Anne Q.

About Anne Qualters

Martin and I have owned Villa Marisa since December 1985. We love it very much and visit as often as possible throughout the year. Martin's self-employed so, since he's answerable to himself alone, he's forever badgering me to have another long weekend in Javea! However I am employed so it's not always that easy for me to abandon my post, much to Martin's annoyance!

When we bought the villa, our children were just 4 and 2 so they've grown up holidaying in and around the property and now, as adults themselves, they still love returning for visits with their respective partners and groups of friends. Some of our own pals who came to stay with us early on have bought their own houses in Javea and huge numbers of us descend for birthday celebrations and New Year. Great times!

Anne Qualters purchased this villa in 1985

Why Anne Qualters chose Xàbia

Quite simply, Javea is a captivating location. Since buying Villa Marisa, we have had countless friends and relatives out there to stay with us. Many of them were definitely Spain sceptics who hadn't set foot in the country for decades, preferring France, Italy and Portugal. I can say quite honestly that they've all been converted thanks to Javea's amazing drawing power and some have even bought their own houses in the area.

The scenery is beautiful - tree covered hills, vine covered terraces, groves of olives and oranges, small rocky coves, ideal for snorkelling and a wide sandy beach for families; Javea's got it all!

Eating out is a joy too. No matter what your preferences, there'll be a restaurant for you and Spanish wines, especially the reds, are smooth and wonderful.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Marisa is ideally situated. We're not right in the bustle of the sea front but it only takes a few minutes to drive there or, in the other direction, to the golf course or the supermarket. The property's in a cul de sac road so it's quiet and, at night, with no street lighting and air con, you're guaranteed an excellent tranquil sleep!

We've always treated Villa Marisa as a home, rather than a mere rental property and we don't have one set of equipment for ourselves and another for our guests. If we feel the need for something, we buy it and it's there for everybody's benefit. We've always thought our house is very special - we love it - and we've always wanted our visitors to feel the same way too. Judging by the many thank you letters we've received over the years, most do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Sporting a very nice tan at the moment. Brilliant villa! Brilliant weather! Brilliant location! Brilliant holiday!" Rob & Colette Foulkes, August 2008.

"We had a wonderful holiday and thought the villa was superb... a real home from home and very well kitted out. Thanks again for the use of your beautiful home." Julie Foster, August 2007.

"We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at your villa, once again. It was very relaxing and enjoyed by all. Our friends thought your villa was beautiful and exceeded their expectations although we had told them how lovely it was. We all think the villa is in such a peaceful location but close enough to the unspoilt town of Javea." Nickie Lynham. Summer 2006 and Summer 2007.
