About the Owner

Hi, me and my partner moved to Gandia in 2007 to this wonderful villa, semi retired. Enjoyed 2 fantastic summers there until Faye became pregnant with our first child. Joel was born in Gandia hospital with excellent health care. We enjoyed further time in Spain with our new born but Granny and Grandad sure missed their only grandchild so we moved back to the uk for education etc. I was rocketed back into running businesses locally as before and now we have our second child daughter Macey Brooke. We regularly visit the villa off season usually for my cycling!! Who knows full retirement may be on the eventual horizon in a few years.

We had a fantastic time at the villa we could relax without worrying about the kids getting bored. Awesome scenery the best location ever. Definitely be back!! J.Sharpe June 2012

Arrived at night and placed looked beautiful pool lights etc, to wake in the morning like being in paradise so tranquil. Plenty to do in Gandia and the beach is amazing, would definitely recommend.

Very quiet location for 2 families with teenage children - you can make as much noise as you like!

We were a little concerned that no one had reviewed the villa prior to our stay but we need not have have worried. Mark the owner and the second Mark who looks after the villa during your stay made the whole experience most enjoyable.

A car is a must - the nearest bar / restaurant is 1.5km away and the nearest big supermarket around 5km. We tended to use the excellent BBQ area rather than eat out, and there are numerous seating areas. However we did venture to El Coto the local restaurant/bar provides good local cuisine and is excellent value for money. 8 of us ate for under 150 euros including drinks.

The tennis court, pool table and excellent pool kept the kids entertained for hours - with the weather in the mid 30s we spent all day outside and did trek to the local beaches about 15 minutes away a couple of times. With temps that high outside you need to manage the temp inside the house carefully during the day to ensure you are able to sleep overnight. There is aircon in the lounge which is where the kids decided to sleep, which meant we were able to double up the fans for the adults upstairs and found this to be a very comfortable solution.

The kitchen is pretty well equipped and we only found ourselves to be short of 1 or 2 pieces of cutlery but there are plastic cups for out door drinks which makes a lot of sense.

We have stayed in many villas over the years and I would summarise this as well equipped although not luxurious but probably one of the best value for money villas we have stayed in.
