About the property

Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms, in walking distance to bars, supermarkets, good restaurants & new shopping centre. Perfect for non-drivers

This apartment is our home away from home. We have loved coming to stay to escape the English weather for 15 years and the area keeps getting better and better.

We love the apartment because it's on the ground floor of a brilliant, small complex. It's on a quiet road that leads directly down to the blue flag La Zenia beach which you can walk to in 8 minutes. It's also close to an array of restaurants offering all types of food, great bars, big supermarkets and La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre.

The Outside Space

Because it's a ground floor apartment, we have two private terraces that wrap around the property so you can chase the sunshine. There is a sheltered area which has a large dining table and covered smoking area, a BBQ terrace, and a large area which has sun loungers. There is a wall and secure gate around the property so it is secure for children.

The Pool

To the rear of the complex is a resident's only, communal pool which is clean and quiet. It is best enjoyed for an afternoon swim in the sunshine, is not visible from the apartment but is easily accessed via the main apartment entrance. Some of our families like to spend the whole day at Orihuela Costa hotel which is less than 5 minutes walk away.

The Living Space

With a comfy leather sofa, you can relax and watch English TV and DVDs. We also have very fast and reliable WIFI which is free of charge to all guests. There is a table and chairs for eating meals inside when needed.

The Kitchen

The kitchen is really well equipped. We love to cook and have made sure there is a really good array of pots, pans, plates and everything you could need to make a holiday meal.

The Main Bedroom

The main bedroom has a comfy double bed with new duvets and a luxury mattress topper. There are built-in wardrobes so there is a lot of storage, a dressing table, hairdryers and there is an ensuite with a large shower.

The Second Bedroom

The second bedroom can have two single beds or a double bed. It has new mattresses and duvets so it's really comfortable.

The Third Bedroom

This bedroom contains two single beds with new mattresses and duvets. Inside the built-in wardrobe is a safe to keep valuables in.

The Bathroom

The shared bathroom has a bath with a shower.

Other things you might want to know

We have described the area near the apartment, but further afield there is a lot to see and do, whether you are a couple or a family. You are within driving distance to some excellent towns and sights, such as Torreveja, Alicante and Murcia. You are also close to some excellent golf clubs.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Have now spent six summer hols at the apartment. Last year was as fantastic as always. My friends and I just love not having to have a car. Everything is within walking distance. I have booked again for 2013, JC from Hampshire.

A great holiday. Thanks. The apartment and area in general were great for us and our toddler. He loved the beach at Cala Capitain as the water was shallow and calm. B and N Hampshire.

I had the best holiday. The beach is fantastic and the apartment lovely and plenty to do nearby. It has everything you need. I can't wait to come again. CM from Hampshire (teenager).

Amazingly located 3 bed apartment, 8 mins walk from La Zenia Beach
average rating of 3.5 based on 5 reviews

Pleasant stay in La Zenia

  • 4 of 5

A very nice and clean apartment. A little bit on the small side but not really an inconvenience. A short walk to bars, restaurants in either Cabo Roig or La Zenia. Also a very short walk to the beach. A decent location for our golf games also. Nice seating and lounging area at the front for the sun. The swimming pool is in a strange location. It seems to be in the shade all day. All in all, quite a nice apartment and in a nice area.

Owner's Response: Hi Stephen Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We’re glad you liked the apartment and had a good time. Re the pool, you’re right, it’s in shade all morning and then in sun in the afternoon which suits a lot of folk when it’s very hot. Thanks for staying at El Verano. Lynn and Chris

Tilfredsstillende med mangler

  • 3 of 5

Det var et udmærket hus,og beliggenheden er meget central.Det var ikke så stor køkken i huset,men de ville hjælpe hvis. Der ikke var så mange ting af ejerens. De kunne med lethed være opbevaret i den store kælderen

Jeg mener også opsynet med huset kunne have sørget for at elpærerne var udskiftede før ankomst af nye gæster.
