About Lesley O'Dell

The property is owned by Lesley & Mark O'Dell, who reside in Warrington, Cheshire. We adore Spain hence the ownership of our properties. Our friends also live near the properties. We are married in our 50's and have three grown up children (2 sons, one based in London one who works in car rental management for an international company, one who lives in Nashville, USA who works in vehicle management and our daughter who is nursery nurse locally. Lesley is retired. Mark has retired from his former Police career and now works as a freelance trainer assessor, delivering trainer / assessor course, first aid, lifeguard training and health and safety courses - www.richmondtrainingassociates.co.uk.

We have both been actively involved in the Scout Association and Mark is a District Water Activity Adviser and a County Assessor for canoeing and rafting.

Lesley O'Dell purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Lesley O'Dell chose Orihuela Area

El Rincon was purchased for it's location as a good holiday venue. The benefits being: gated secure community. Good standard of accommodation and sunny balcony overlooking community pool. Couple of supermarkets a short walk away. Playa Flamenca Commercial Centre containing plenty of restaurants only a short walk away. Blue flag beaches along the coast here. Cosmopolitan Torrevieja only a short drive away. Air-conditioned and heated property makes it ideal for winter lets. Covered car parking to keep your hire car cool. UK TV and other international channels.

Free Wi-Fi bring your laptop/tablet/smart phone.

What makes this apartment unique

We have holidayed in several countries, however El Rincon is well geared up for tourism and people keep coming back. Our properties are serviced by two local airports both within easy driving distance, namely Murcia and Alicante Airports. When we travel out and have a hire car we do travel out a bit further afield. The inland sea at La Manga is definitely worth a visit and shops in Torrevieja are good. You can even mud bathe by the salt pans at San Pedro, very popular with the locals.

El Rincon apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the apartment, it was in pristine condition and had everything we needed. The pool area was superb and the children loved having it mostly to themselves. We could not have been placed in a better position as there were many bars and restaurants close by, also within a few minutes walk to large supermarkets. I would like to mention a big thank you to Helen and Chris who look after the property, they are a credit to the owners Lesley and Mark. Once again a big thank you and we will certainly be back again.

Pat &family,

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We're from the Netherlands (so excuse my poor Englisch) and we've been at least 8 times in Orihuela. This is the second time in El Rincon. We had an extremely pleasant stay at this nice and clean apartment. We felt really save because of the security gate. Loved the wind from the sea. Great Wifi. Our children (8 & 12) loved it here. We've stayed in several other communities, and I think the regulations in El Rincon are quite soft compared to others. We really want to come back again to this apartment.

After we left, we had an immediate call that my husband has left his wallet in one of the drawers. So thank you Lesley, Mark, Helen and Chris for your kindness and service. Lesley, thank you so much for your wonderful communication since this was our first time we booked at HomeAway.

Owner's Response: So glad you all had a good time; we will be pleased to have you here again in the future. Due to the building being built around the pool/gardens there is shelter from the sea breeze when you want to sunbathe but when it is very hot it is indeed a good idea to open the front door to get a little breeze from the sea. It was very fortunate that Helen and Chris went in to clean straight away and we were able to alert you that the wallet had been left........we worked as a team on that one. and hope to continue as a team. Happy travelling.

Lovely location, really comfy beds. Air con was a blessing although only used it twice when needed. Has everything you need and fast wifi. Good pool and plenty of things to do and places to eat and drink. Spotlessly clean. Will definitely book to stay here again. Excellent communication from both Lesley and housekeepers Helen & Chris

The apartment was beautiful, and so well equipped, couldn't ask for more! Loved the large balcony where we could lie and enjoy afternoon sun. It was immaculate and the communiation from Lesley was much appreciated. In an ideal position to walk to Playa Flamenca, La Zenia or to Punta Prima. Loved all the long coastal walks and found the restaurants very reasonable. Thank you so much.

Owner's Response: So pleased that you found everything to your liking. We try hard to keep the apartment clean and well maintained, part of which is due to our housekeeper who does an excellent job when it is hot and time is of the essence during the peak season. We also rely on our guests to speak up if anything is broken or not up to scratch so that we can sort it straight away.. Yes there are some lovely walks nearby and places where you can get drink/food without breaking the bank. We love it and so do many of our guests who return time after time. Hope you will too. Thanks Lesley

Well equipped apartment, very comfortable with free wifi

  • 2 of 5

Apartment was lovely and clean and extremely comfortable. However I would not stay in this complex again, it was extremely windy compared to other blocks, also there are a ridiculous amount of complex rules, no eating or drinking by the pool, no noise by the pool, it felt extremely regimental. On the first evening a resident asked me and my friend to stop talking on the balcony....ridiculous.

This is a residential block with no holiday atmosphere at all. Perfect if you are looking for a trip on complete silence.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review, a little disappointing when all our other guests are awarding 5 's and 4's. A lot of holiday lets in Spain are in community sites so there will be a few basic rules which are intended for your SAFETY and CONSIDERATION to others. Sorry if you found them excessive. There is a rule in this part of Spain that there should be no noise between the hours of Midnight and 8am; this is at the Hotels as well and any live entertainment should stop at Midnight. You misunderstood the no eating and drinking at the Pool. It says no eating but you are allowed to take drink in plastic bottles i.e. no glass by the pool. These are pretty standard rules over here. Early April is early for the holiday season so the complex is usually fairly quiet - mainly residents who return to the UK when the season really starts. If you want more 'holiday' atmosphere at this time of year then our apartment is probably not for you. We are a family orientated complex and have a lot of repeat bookings from our guests.
