Three times I have rent this villa. Tommy T bag Manchester, England

...this villa is excellent, it is situated on a very quiet avenue and is well-maintained, it is also very secure surrounded by a wall and entrance for cars and there is room for at least 6 on the side drive. Walk for a short distance and there are banks, restaurants, bars and supermarkets.

Great Family Holiday.

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from a two week stay in this fabulous villa. Greeted by the lovely Georgina whom we found really friendly. Villa spotlessly clean inside and out. Pool area immaculate. Fabulous size pool. Six of us stayed including myself and my husband my 8 year old son and 9 year old daughter, my mother and my 14 year old niece. Plenty of space on the inside. Lots of storage for clothes. Lots of tv channels. Air conditioning in all rooms which was greatly appreciated. Fly screens so windows can be opened without any nasties getting in whilst letting a lovely breeze in. Need to be careful with cleanliness as ants can be a small problem but a few sprays here and there does the trick. Will definitely return to this villa. So close to all amenities. Had a fantastic holiday. Felt very safe as the area is lovely quiet area. Thanks for looking after us Georgina. Will see you again next year.

Excellent accomodation and lovely pool

  • 5 of 5

Ideally located for the shops restaurants and the beach. Fantastic pool in a very quiet residential area. I would recommend this property for a relaxing holiday. There is no foliage or plantation in the gardens which makes it seem quite bland, however there were no flies as a result!

Owner's Response: Previous guests, mainly from families with young children, gave verbal feedback to say that although they enjoyed their time at the villa, they were being annoyed by the mosquitoes whilst in the pool and around the pool terrace. Unfortunately mosquitoes are difficult to keep at bay as they are to be found in hot climates and live in greenery especially when near water. Consequently there is little that can be done to prevent them. The villa used to be surrounded by high conifer hedging and as attractive as the conifers were they were removed at end of season 2016, in the hope that in doing so this would go a long way in alleviating mosquitoes and thus allowing our guests full enjoyment of their stay. The high walls now surrounding the villa still give privacy and a few are decorated with decorative plaques. We are very pleased to know that our guest on this stay still enjoyed a relaxing and enjoyable time at the villa even in the absence of greenery and we hope he will visit again on a future occasion.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fantastic 10nights stay in this villa, it is very well situated for all amenities and a 10 min walk to the beach. It was lovely and clean on arrival and has everything you could possibly need including items for the pool, which was a god send. Georgina who looks after the villa is very helpful, she looked after us from start to finish, which was very much appreciated as it was our first time stay in a villa, she is very knowledgeable and was a great help, it was a pleasure to meet her and her husband Kevin, Georgina can not do enough to help. I look forward to returning in the future. Our first villa holiday has been amazing 🌞🌞😃😃

Entire property was in pristine condition

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious inside and outside, only a few minutes walk to all shops, bars and restaurants.....La Zenia Boulevard was indeed top of our list on this trip. This was our second time to stay in this Villa over the past 2 years and again the entire property was in pristine condition along with the excellent customer service from start to finish. Definitely would recommend this property to other travellers

700mts from Beach, Central to all Attractions

  • 5 of 5

Very impressive from the start, all rooms very clean and the outside of the property was spotless and might I add very safe and secure for our children and my elderly mother. 10 minute walk to the La Zenia Boulevard Shopping Centre (a must visit) and walking distance to an array of supermarkets and good restaurants and bars. Bus Service within walking distance, if you wanted to plan a days outing to Alicante, Cartegena, Murcia, etc.

Orihuela Costa provides a vibrant nightlife with many entertainers working along the coastal resorts with its wide range of bars and restaurants to meet all tastes. There are many local beach resorts along the Orihuela coast and many have been awarded the blue flag in recognition of high quality. Within a few minutes walking distance are the three fantastic beaches of La Zenia.

La Zenia itself is in the heart of the Orihuela Costa with easy access to the AP7 motorway and the N332 coastal road. On your doorstep there is an array of banks, shops, bazaars, restaurants and café bars (many providing great live entertainment).

Only a few minutes walking distance and between the Saturday street market and the AP7 Junction is the newly opened (September 2012) Zenia Boulevard Commercial Centre with over 5000 car park spaces, over 150 shops including Zara, Blanco, Europe´s biggest Primark, H&M, C&A, Druni, AlCampo, Decathalon, Leroy Merlin, Blanco, serveral children´s boutiques and AlCampo supermarket but to name but a few as well as a petrol station. For entertainment value there is a children´s large play area, casino, bowling alley, an enormous tv screen showing sports and there is often live entertainment provided. The centre itself is a pleasure to walk around if only for window shopping (if possible), a bite to eat, a glass of wine, beer or a coffee. A good night out is guaranteed during the months of July and August as the centre is open until 1am.

Other local activities are football, bowling, 10-pin bowling, go-karting, scuba diving, tennis, casino and cinema.

Local resorts are the vibrant Cabo Roig, the popular Flamenca Beach commercial centre and the fabulous Villamartin Plaza.

The main town of Torrevieja with fabulous marina, promenade, Habaneras shopping centre and water park is only a 15 minute drive away and every evening during the high and low seasons you will find an abundance of small market stalls providing local craft along the front.

The beautiful Mar Menor coastline with stretches from San Pedro to La Manga is a 15 minute drive away. Alternatively heading north towards Alicante you will find the very attractive sandy beaches of Guardamar and La Marina.

AIRPORTS: There are two main airports serving the Costa Blanca area and these are Alicante, which is just a 45 minute drive to the property and just 20 minutes drive away is Murcia (San Javier)

AIRLINES: Monarch/Rynair/Easyjet/Jet2 etc offering budget and scheduled flights from Stansted, Gatwick, Luton, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Prestwick, Shannon, Dublin, Cork and other major European airports
