About Mark Newton

This apartment is privately owned and managed by a UK based family. It is furnished as a high spec family holiday home as it is regularly used by them and their family

Mark Newton purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Mark Newton chose Santa Pola

Great Beach. Great Access. Highly regarded urbanisation based at the foot of the hill, not the top which means beach access is easy. A great urbanisation with a quiet internal view away from the road. Great pool.

Just what we wanted.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment in an open and stunning location, we went for a quiet week away and we got exactly that. We went just before the season starts so still very quiet and some bar and restaurants still closed up but that didn't spoil a thing. Still lots to do and places to see, I highly recommend traveling over to Tarbacca Island its extremely beautiful we went to scuba dive a little cold but still worth it I am very tempted to go back during the hotter months to snorkel. And as for the locals, couldn't help enough very friendly. Food and drink is amazing and I spent every day eating tapas or paella (heaven). Mark is every bit as helpful, anything you need just ask his response time is fab, and the apartment was spotless and had everything you will ever need.

We had a brilliant time!! Definately recommend it!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely in an excellent location to the bars/restaurants. The apartment had all the amenities you need for a short/long stay, plus British tv and wifi which makes life much easier especially when you have kids to occupy in the evenings. The rooms were nice and clean, and we soon settled in.

The terrace was perfectly positioned as a sun trap for relaxing in the late afternoon.

The beach was an easy pleasant 10 min walk away which was not too far for the kids. The beach by the way was beautiful and clean, and due to the time of year felt like we had it all to ourselves.

The restaurants, particularly the Aquarius, was very friendly and offered really nice food. The host was happy to advise us on the local buses for getting to San pola and Gran Alacant, and even ordered our taxi for the airport the next day.

We would definately recommend staying at this apartment and consider returning again.

I would also give five stars to the owner for his courtesy and helpfulness, and ensuring that our stay was as pleasant as can be. Mark was easy to message through the site and always replied promptly to any questions we had. It canbe abit daunting when you plan a stay abroad without a tour operator or a package holiday, but everything went as smoothly as can be, and was exactly as described.

Overall, a fantastic stay for me and my family. My only regret was not staying longer!!
