About The Owner

We live in England with our 2 children and 2 cats, just across the local common where we walk and cycle all over. We are a family of keen cyclists & try to have a cycle outing once a week. If not cycling (or playing tennis if you're Nico), we love playing games, music, singing, al fresco dining or barbecues, walking, swimming, being part of our local community (fairs / markets / music events)

The Owner purchased this in 2004

Why The Owner chose Rojales

We love our house firstly because of all the effort we put into "dressing" it... We love the view, the freedom, the marble, the difference to how our life is at home - a true holiday home.

We love the area because it supports our need for a varied holiday (we have a 15 year gap between all our children) - we overlook the orange/lemon groves adjacent to the De La Mata (salt lake) Nature Reserve which is great for local walking & cycling. Local supermercado is walking/cycling distance away. Yet we are central to small wonderful Spanish villages, market towns and great cities. All with great traditions all year round (truly awesome Easter and Christmas celebrations as well as outstanding concerts & events over the Summer holiday offering a little more entertainment and cultural diversion)

What makes this unique

This is OUR holiday house that we share with you.

Our house is unique in both style and practicality. Elegant furniture -not the mass produced bland offerings of most. Fully functional for any time of the year (winter - heat, summer - air-con / terrace dining, built in proper barbeque, proper wooden garden furniture and loungers) with all, not just some, holiday conveniences such as dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/freezer, combination oven (microwave & convec) and even kitchen processor.

As we love games, multitude of games. As we love music & movie there are many CD and a big selection of DVDs. We love exploring so our guidebooks are there... And with kids - toys, work - broadband of course! As we love cycling:we used to have 2 adults & 2 children's bicycles (sorry now removed as too costly to maintain, still excellent to hire & cycle around!).Our home from home. Hope you enjoy it too

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so grateful that you were able to help us (and friends find accomodation at short notice) at a time of challenge. Your generosity and assistance at every step was deeply appreciated. Your house is also very welcoming and your property managers friendly and efficient.

Wonderful home from home

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two stay at the house and we had a wonderful time. On arrival we were met by David who gave us the keys and general advice ect. The house was very clean and it is has everything you could need for a relaxing stay.

The area is quiet and has plenty of on road parking. The pool was much needed, but it did have a huge amount of wasps around it. We bought a sieve and would take out the dead ones.......you just had to watch where you were stepping. It was very hot and humid and maybe this is why there were so many. It did not stop us from using and enjoying the pool.

Within walking distance you find a supermarket and bars and after a short drive you arrive at fantastic beaches. David and Jessica (who meet you with the keys) have written some brilliant guide books, that give you some great ideas for days out and they were available in the house.

We had a wonderful 2 weeks and cannot thank the owners enough for all the help and advice they gave us. The house is in a wonderful area and the views across the lake is just amazing....we would go back again

Villa was lovely & clean ideal size to fit 6 people easily. Straight across from complex pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was In a fantastic location straight across from the complex swimming pool. 10 mins walk to local supermarket & a few bars & same time scale in the other direction where there was a great British pub, Chinese restaurant & few other eateries.

The "strip" where there are numerous restaurants & bars is a short taxi ride away costing €8.

My only issue was we only received 1 set of keys & as a villa to hold maybe a few couples found this a bit of a nusciance to arrange times for everyone to gain access to villa together l.

Owner's Response: What a wonderful and informative review, thank you! Apologies for only 1 set of keys, we've never been asked for another but I think it's a valid point so I'll have another set made so next time you'll have at least 2 sets. Thank you for giving us the suggestion.

A very well situated villa. Bars and restaurants and a decent supermarket all within walking distance.

Very comfortable accommodation, very well equipped.

Lovely pool opposite, which we had to ourselves most of the time.

Good contact with owners and their keyholders.

Friendly, helpful, excellent villa and great holiday overall

  • 5 of 5

The owners were incredibly helpful and the property was wonderful - even better than described. The photos don't do it justice (bit outdated). Excellent location and good guides. The De La Mata nature reserve is quiet and amazing. Longish walk to the beach that we very much enjoyed.
