About the Owner

We're an English family, mum, dad, daughter and the apartment is our second home not just a rental property; so it's equipped with everything you could want whilst you're on holiday. We take pride in making sure all our guests are comfortable and have everything they need. The apt is looked after by good friends of ours who live close by and ensure it's kept in tip top condition. We try our best to make the whole booking process as easy as possible and are on hand (email/phone) if you have any queries re car hire, local facilities, flights etc. We realise it can be daunting if it's the first time you have arranged a holiday in this way and are only too glad to help in any way we can. One guest wanted to know how many coat hangers there are in the wardrobes! (it's about 70 by the way!)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Laura & Mike-June 2014 Thank you for renting your beautiful apartment to us. It was definitely the best we have stayed in, and we very much hope to be able to return in the future. There was nothing we could have wanted for. I especially appreciated the wifi, and the two bathrooms - and the lovely walk-in shower.

Dawn Huchings-Aug 2012-We had such a fantastic holiday. Can I just say all credit to you and your husband .. you have such a lovely apartment. All of my friends absolutely loved it, it was so clean and there was everything you could possibly need. Thanks again for being so on-hand with everything.

Joan Duckett-April 2011-Thank you for restoring our faith in Spanish rentals. Everything you need and so very much more.

Sarah Ely-2010-We had a wonderful holiday.The apartment was perfect and the information you gave us was so helpful.We loved the location and found the apartment had everything we needed to make our holiday perfect. We were just sorry to leave.

Spacious and excellent value for money.

  • 5 of 5

This is a good sized apartment which benefits from a south facing, large roof terrace. There is air con in both bedrooms and the living area which worked very well. The kitchen is well equipped with large fridge/freezer, filtered cold water, and an additional laundry room. There were also loads of additional bits and bobs, such as surf boards, beach trolley, cool bags, etc. The location is about 10-15 minutes walk from the beach. Downhill going, uphill coming back. The urbanisation is set on a hillside so not for those who aren't mobile (unless you hire a car). There's plenty of parking if you do. The beach was clean and not over crowded. If you take a snorkel you will be able to see the sea is teaming with fish that swim around you. Quite good fun feeding them. Overall we would definitely recommend Trish and Bill's apartment. We chose not to hire a car and walked in to town (about 25 minutes) on a couple of occasions. The trolleycame in very handy for grocery shopping trips.

We had a Great stay

  • 4 of 5

From our first contact with Trisha (feels like I know her even if we never met) til the last, we have been taken care of in an excellent way.

The apartment were in a perfect spot, close to the beach (10 minutes), the bus stop for the local bus - 2 minutes (takes you around Gran Alacant and to the store, market and back - perfect) and also close to lots of restaurants and Bars (our favourite - The indian restaurant and Bar Oceans 11, Great place and great people)

The apartment has everything you'll need. Great Wifi and one of the best things - We did not need to carry home any bottled water. The apartment have filtered water - always two cans in the fridge. We cooked at least 50% at home - Perfect!

We didn't have a car except for one day and you will not need it unless there is a specific reason for it.

We gave 4 stars out of 5. The last one will be there if an update of some furniture is made - but that didn't effect how much we loved to stay in the apartment in Gran Alacant!

Excellent accommodation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described and then some. Me, my wife and 2 children stayed (1 and 5) and couldn't have asked for more. Beautiful surroundings and pool area maintained to a very high standard. Would 100% recommend for families. Trisha has also been helpful beyond the call of duty and so easy to liaise with. Top marks!!

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment in a great area. I couldn't fault anything and the booking process went without a hitch. The owner is very helpful especially as we hadn’t booked a holiday this way before. The pool area is beautiful and never crowded and the fantastic beach is a short walk away. Lots of restaurants and bars. We had a great time and have booked again for next year!

Great Apartment, Roof Terrace superb.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home after three great weeks at this superb apartment. Everything we needed for a great peaceful relaxing break in the sun was provided for . The booking process was simple and efficient and stress free thanks to the owner Trisha. The roof terrace was fantastic , large with everything we need for long days relaxing in the beautiful sunny weather we had. The apartment is located in a quite area but within a 5 minute walk to shops and restaurants. The beautiful beach of Arenales is only a 15 minute walk away. The resort of Santa Pola is ten minutes by bus and Alicante a little longer in the opposite direction both of which we would recommend to visit. We would have no doubt about recommending this apartment and hopefully we will return again next year.

Brilliant apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Best apartment we've ever stayed in - it has everything and Trish makes it easy to arrange things.This is a wonderful apartment with everything you could wish for. Close to a beautiful beach and great bars and restaurants. The apartment's a real home from home and with two bathrooms it made life easier with two teenage girls! This is a very safe family area and the pool and surrounding areas are well maintained. I couldn't fault anything and we had a superb time. Weather was great too even in October!

Location

From the Owner

We love Gran Alacant because of the fantastic facilities in the area. There are some beautiful beaches and the area boasts a great range of bars and restaurants. The area is easily accessible with Alicante airport a 10 minute drive away.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Lessons in sailing, wind surfing, sail boarding, kite surfing are all available. The large nature reserve with walking trails is a great way to spend a day. Drive to a Mountain range with great walks, waterfalls and rock pools suitable for swimming. Fishing is available in numerous reservoirs for black bass carp, and barbel. Places on deep sea charters are available and tuna fishing is excellent in season.

Coast/Beach:

The beautiful, unspoilt, blue flag Carabassi beach is a 10 minute walk away, with its gently shelving water it is ideal for children and adults alike. It is a soft sandy beach sheltered by rolling sand dunes. There is a beach bar and you can hire sunbeds if you want to, but plenty of space if you want to do your own thing.

Travel:

Alicante airport is a mere 10 mins drive away, Murcia airport is 50mins. We have many guests stay with and without a car (taxi hire from airport is approx 20€). The area is served by a good local bus service to nearby Alicante and Santa Pola. There is also a road tram that travels around the local area and is a great hit with the children.

Distances:

The small town of Los Arenales is 20min walk and has a promenade, restaurants etc. The fishing port of Santa Pola is 10 min drive with it's castle, marina,fish museum, restaurants and bars. A Sarfari Park is only 15 mins. Alicante with its many large shops, castle, marina is 20 mins drive. The ancient town of Elche with its Palm forest is 20 mins. Benidorm is 45 mins and has a large theme Park, Nature Park, Water Park and Dolphinarium. Guadalest, Altea and Tabarca island are well worth a visit.

Further Details:

The apartment has about a dozen restaurants and bars within 5 mins walk. A walk of about 15 mins provides many more restaurants and bars and a drive of 5 mins in any one of several directions will provide you with yet more choice. The area is served by 5 supermarkets all providing good quality, local, fresh produce as well as many English items. A bakery(Panaderia) is 2 mins walk away - lovely fresh bread every morning! There are banks within walking distance and on Thurday morning there is a local market in Gran Alacant. Santa Pola (10 minutes drive) has a popular fish market and local market for fresh produce.

Nature Reserve:-There is a nature reserve within 10 mins walk, providing lovely walks, bird watching (several hides), 2 small lakes and large picnic areas.

10 minutes drive away are the Salt Lakes of Santa Pola where pink flamingoes abound as well as many other varieties of birds.

The folders in our apartment give you all the local knowledge that you will need for an enjoyable and stress free holiday.
