Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a few words of appreciation following our return from a fantastic week's holiday. We were so delighted with the welcome on arrival and to see the trouble Andrea had gone to. After such a long day the beers in the fridge were particularly well received! After daylight we could properly appreciate how peaceful the location was. It was just what we needed. I felt that I felt that in reality it was even better than it looked on the website. The combination of peace and quiet, the pool, very comfortable furnishings and the TV made us and especially Griff, our son, feel really at a home from home. This had been the main difficulty in the past when when had taken holidays which had upset him becaue there was so much that was unfamiliar to him. So many thanks for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home and many thanks to Andrea for being so helpful and caring. R. Edge, May/ June 2007

Lovely Quiet Retreat In a quiet town surrounded by mountains.

  • 4 of 5

During our week long stay we were surprised at how quiet the place was which was exactly what we were after. Hardly any issues to mention other than the pool light wasn't working which would of been nice as we all did some night time pool frolicking(and a pool heater would of been even better but it was October). The kids enjoyed it also however did tend to get a little restless towards the end of our stay. The only other drawback i would think would be the size as i thought it would be a little bigger. I wouldn't of liked to of gone with 6 of us but as there were only 5(2 adults, 3 children) it was manageable but maybe im just been too fussy. The really lovely friendly cat which on occasion chose to be me meow'ing outside the window of where my daughter was sleeping early on a morning which, as much as we all love cats (given we have one ourselves) was a little frustrating for her. Oh and a cooker hood/extractor fan could really be utilized as when cooking for 5 of us on the cooker we definitely needed the door or window open which is fine through the day but on a night becomes a hotspot for insects flying in. Other than that it was great. Jan the property manager was great with the minor issues we had. For us the best town nearby was Xalo where there was some lovely restaurants and a supermarket among other shops. There were others nearby but we just preferred Xalo. Was absolutely lovely just chilling outside on an evening with a glass or 2 of wine...erm ok then several glasses of wine...lol..and watching the stars go buy chilling on the sun loungers. In the day even though it was the back end of October the temperature was still in the 20's and even though there were a few overcast days it was still warm. We did gather a few oranges and made some "fresh as you can get" juice which was nice. We would of liked a barbie but it did feel a tad claustrophobic where it was but im sure in peak summer we would of much preferred it to be situated where it was for shade. It would of been nice if it was on wheels so we could of taken it nearer the pool area where we all were but it didn't dampen anything by any stretch of the imagination. All in all a lovely place with friendly locals and perfect if you want to be away from the concrete jungle in a nice open setting surrounded by mountains. We give it 4 stars although we think it would probably be a tad under due to the points given but feel it would be brutally unjust to give it 3 or even 3+. Many thanks

Excellent propety in a beautiful and peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Having visited the area previously, including twice in November, we decided to come back for the last of our fair weather cycling of 2016. Good weather isn't guaranteed at this time of year, but we had a week of warm sunshine until our last day when the it was raining and windy. The accommodation is comfortable and ideal just for the 2 of us, with a well equipped kitchen and good amenities. It was clean and well maintained, and the owner was very helpful in arranging our booking with our odd dates. Outside space is amazing, and we made good of use of it, apart from the pool! The location as very quiet with pleasant views, and perfect for cycling or walking on the many challenging and exciting roads and trails in the area.

Amazing location, great pool and outdoor space

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of August 2016. The outdoor space and pool is amazing and we would thoroughly recommend it to anyone! It is in a really nice quiet area. We found lovely quiet beaches just north of Denia and most of the time had 100m of beach to ourselves :)

Andrea was so helpful with the booking. The property is great. Look no further for your booking.

Wonderful peaceful location, off the beaten track.

  • 5 of 5

If your dream holiday includes peace, quiet, beautifully dramatic landscapes and countryside as well as getting a taste of the authentic Spanish life and culture, then the Murla Casita is a great place to stay.

On arrival we found the property to be clean and had everything that was given in the description. The layout of the Casita has the ground floor giving access to the lounge and kitchen area, with guests accessing the bedrooms by the outside staircase. The bedrooms are all well furnished and presented and have plenty of space. The outside patio area has a gas powered bbq, patio and seating area. We spent almost every night eating in the outside area which was very pleasant.

The separate pool area is very nice, with loungers for sun bathing, or a gazebo area if you want to keep out of the midday sun. We spent most days, when not exploring the surrounding area, in the pool. When sat in the pool area you get an appreciation of the wonderful location that the Casita is located in. The town of Murla is flanked by mountains on each side, and the local area is superb for hiking, running and road cycling which we did on most days. Can't recommend this area enough for this aspect.

Some wonderful places to explore such as the beaches at Calp and Moareria, nearby towns of Xalo, and Denia and further afield to Valencia (90 mins drive). There are lots of really nice restaurants in nearby towns with a range of options.

During the stay we had a couple of issues, such as the Air Con breaking down. Both Andrea (the owner) and the property manager were really helpful in trying to get them rectified.

My family really enjoyed our time at the Casita Murla and hope to go back and visit sometime in the future.

Pure relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas as a family and in terms of value for money this is right up there with the best. The pool area is superb and the Cabana is a god send when the temperatures are in the mid 30's. If you want peace and relaxation in a small Spanish Village but only 30 mins drive from some lovely Spanish coastal resorts like Denia then this is the place for you.

Excellent, peaceful, brilliant villa

  • 5 of 5

Situated a 90 minute drive from Alicante airport the villa is in a tiny village so a car is essential. Totally private by the pool so you can avoid tan lines if you want. The villa is well equipped with crockery and has a fully equipped kitchen. Air con worked well but the breeze whilst we were there meant it wasn't needed. 2 good sized bedrooms and also a bed as you enter the upstairs part of the villa(via quirky outside steps). The double bed was sooooo comfortable! Bedding is good quality as are the towels. If I had to find fault it would be that our stay was too short. Excellent comms with Andrea. Would definitely recommend. The pool was a bit chilly but it was May.

Owner's Response: Aww, thank you ever so much. I do try my best. Since your stay I've added Memory Foam Matress Toppers to every bed just to make them even more squidgy and comfy. It's so important to have a great nights sleep and extra home comforts whilst on holiday. The wifi/Internet has also had a major upgrade too! Thank you for being great guests and doing this lovely review for me. xx

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Cycling and walking enthusiasts will love the pretty villages and there are many to explore.

There are 2 dult size mountain bikes, free for use at the property.

Benidorm and all it's theme parks include Terra Mitica (Spain's answer to Disney Land!), Aqualandic Water Park, Mundo Mar (dolphinarium) Terra Nature - animal park. Locally you have tennis, karting, horse riding, and bodegas, where they make the local wine and you get to taste all the varieties!

Travel:

Airport taxis can be arranged for £80 each way, but car hire is highly recommended and can be as cheap as £9 per day! Alicante and Valencia airports are the nearest airports. They are about the same distance (100km/60 miles), each are about an hour's drive on the A7 (AP7) motorway. Alicante is the larger of the two and has probably more flights available. Valencia is smaller which gives it a certain charm. Flights to each of these airports are available from many UK and European locations.

Distances:

Jalon is a 5 min drive with a superb famous Saturday market with bars, bodegas, supermarkets, restaurants, Banks etc. The local pretty village of Murla has a restaurant, a Spanish bakery with fresh baked bread daily, a pharmacy, a couple of bars, large communal swimming pools and children's playground. Murla markets are on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Further Details:

There are only 2 properties within our4 acres of unspoilt scenery. Pretty working villages and wildlife are a must-see for nature lovers. Murla has amazing stunning views and scenery from every angle. Its pure, fresh, sweet smelling mountain air is truly inspiring. Murla has the advantage of being close to many tourist areas and attractions but without being affected by them! This gives the visiting family ample opportunities to enjoy a wide range of activities and sights. Some of the many possibilities within a short drive include many interesting towns and villages including the historic cliff top castle at Guadalest - built by the Moors around 300BC. Most of the local towns and villages have a weekly market and fiestas (festivals) throughout the year. Karting and quad-biking are available locally. There are plenty of mountain bike tracks offering easy and challenging routes, family cycling and walking on the level, traffic-free tracks and trails that criss-cross the region. Snorkeling and scuba, and various boat trips are available off the coast of Denia. For the children big and small, how about a day out at one or all of these fun parks! The Aqualandia Water Park, Mundomar Marine Animal Park and the Terra Mitica Theme Park can all be found at Benidorm. El Vergel safari park is 1/4 hour by car. Shopping - Denia is a substantial coastal town with a large selection of shops of all kinds, it's about 20 minutes drive. Plenty of parking available.
