About the property

Apartment near Moraira, Costa Blanca - Ideally Situated, 5 mins Walk to Beach, 5 mins Drive to Moraira

El Cortijo is located in the quiet residential area of Buenavista. Situated close to the coast road between Moraira and Calpe. Buenavista is an ideal location for exploring the beautiful beaches and coves along the route. The private pool and terrace have sun all day but shade is available if it gets too hot and of course the pool to cool you down! The outside kitchen and barbecue also provide a shady area for outside dining. Located a few minutes walk away is a shop, little Spanish bar, and a quality restaurant etc. A beautiful beach bar with magnificent sea views is just a short walk. Moraira is a short drive away and has a great range of restaurants, bars, beaches and much more. There are many things you can do locally such as any water sports, golf, historical sights to see, local markets and so on. We would be happy to advise you on any personal interests or hobbies you wish to pursue.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Jackie is a gracious and welcoming hostess and the apartment is a great little base from which to explore. This is a small apartment underneath Jackie's lovely villa, 10 minutes in the car from Moraira (nice fishing village) and c15 minutes from Calpe (not our scene!).

There are 3 restaurants within easy walking distance. Los Pepes (great drinks but we did not enjoy the food), the beach bar at Cala Advocat (a little OTT for us - we didn't eat there) and the one across the road (La Buena Vida - food was lovely but there was not much of it!)

There is a beach bar at Baladrar and the food there was OK. We had a good Chinese in the Happy Garden; most nights we chilled in the outdoor kitchen and had a BBQ which was great.

We visited Benissa Old Town - not much to see or do apart from the church which is spectacular (we are not religious but we do like a wander). The highlight for us was Javea (Xabia) - GO! Lovely little seaside resort and a nice cobbled old town with tapas bars and restaurants; there is also a marina and it all has some lovely shops. Denia was not so good and we wouldn't go back there!

All in all, we were totally chilled at Jackie's place - we even got to have a cwtch with the terrorists, Kyle and Kylie (aka Jackie's indoor pussy cats) which made me very much at home as I was missing my furbies! A great relaxing week and a beautiful pool which had the sun till about 8.30 (early May). Thank you! xxx

Relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab stay with Jackie. Everything you need is catered for in the villa to relax and enjoy the sun. Jackie is lovely and very helpful with any questions. Lovely pub with great food at the bottom of the road and excellent restaurant 50 yards more. Great time had, just to find the time to go back!

apartment for two people and our little dog

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jackie for three weeks of a special holiday. We were between Calpe and Moraira, lovely towns with good beaches and shops. The apartment had all you needed plus a comfortable bed. Slept better here than at home. The out side kitchen was large and really pleasant in the sun, pool and outside furniture made for relaxing afternoons. Would like to return to jackies home, thank you Jackie for being so welcoming.

Lovely apartment small and quaint.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely and just what we needed a bedroom bathroom and living space. We were made very welcome by the owner who went out of her way to help us. The apartment has everything you need there is an outside kitchen and pool but as it was February we never used them. The bed was so comfy and having the heaters for the evening made it very cosy. It’s close to the sea and 5 minutes drive to the lovely town of moraira. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a base in which to explore the area.

Great place for a couple at a fab price.

  • 5 of 5

Extremely pleased with our stay with Jackie, and her cat (who is outside most of the time). The private apartment has everything you need and offers good comfort and facilities for a short or longer term stay. Some nice things near by, or by bike or car some stunning beaches to chill out on for the day. I'd recommend staying here if you're looking for a holiday in Alicante. Jackie is awesome and makes you feel welcome. Many thanks :)

Owner's Response: It was very good of this charming young couple to take the time to right a review as I know they have a hectic schedule, going on from here to Valencia, they only stayed for a short time but certainly packed a lot in but still finding time to relax out side the apartment for a few hours each evening, I wish them well and you never know they might pass this way again one day, lets hope its soon.

Wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

Jackie is lovely and made us so welcome. We were on a house-hunting mission and it was a great base to explore from and Jackie was very patient with all our questions and so helpful. If we are in the area again would book immediately and look forward to it, lovely restaurants and beach within walking distance and great value on top!!!
