About Beverley

We live in the UK but have holidayed in Spain for the over 25 years, visiting family living there. We have 3 grown-up children and currently 3 grandchildren so our Spanish house is very much a family home when we are there.

Beverley purchased this house in 2006

Why Beverley chose Orihuela Area

Our short-list for the property was decided as a family. It had to be walking distance of the beach, restaurants and bars, with a pool that could be seen from the house, but quiet enough to enjoy a relaxing break. The location needed to be less than an hour from the airport in an area with no high rise developments. And the house needed to be big enough for the family. This house fulfills all the criteria and more.

What makes this house unique

With all the necessary amenities within walking distance a car is not essential. But just a short drive and you are in open countryside with orange groves and Spanish villages.

The pool can been seen from all outside areas, from the terrace on two sides of the house, from the master bedroom balcony and from the large rooftop solarium, which also has sea views.

And if you love shopping the La Zenia Boulevard complex, with around 150 shops, is under 15 minutes walk from the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect place, perfect pool, perfect house. We hope to be your guests again.



We were very please with house and location. We would not hesitate to stay there again and also recommend it to family and friends.

A lovely property

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to house by the pool and it won’t be our last. The house is spacious , clean and homely. There is plenty of outside space to choose from and the pool is right next to the house. When we have stayed in may and September we have had it to ourselves. It’s about a 15/20 minute walk to the beach, 10 mins to restaurants, we didn’t hire a car. Would recommend this property

Our stay at House-By-The-Pool,Playa Flamenca

  • 4 of 5

Property was very nice and had everything we required during our stay, even down to a shopping trolley and large shopping bag for getting essentials from the supermarkets which were about 15-20 mins walk away. Only negative comment was that the pool had a lot of dead flies, hornets, moths floating on surface and only seemed to get cleaned once during our stay, although this may change during the high season (July to September) when I believe an attendant is on duty at the pool.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We will follow up on your comments about the pool - it should be cleaned daily under the contract. The largest supermarket in the area is around 15-20 minutes walk, however there is one under 10 minutes walk from the house. We look forward to welcoming you and the family back next year. Up-date: Having spoken to the community vice-president about the pool issue I have been informed that on several consecutive days the filter became blocked by seed pods from nearby palm trees. It was cleared daily but re-blocked. Palm tree seed pods are small and black so may have appeared as flies. The palms have now shed all seeds and have been pruned so the issue will not reoccur.

The local Playa Flamenca beaches are less than a mile away and are awarded the European Blue Flag. The Orihuela Costa is 16km of coastline at the southern end of the Costa Blanca. The main beaches have services such as showers, toilets, ramps, life guard services in high season, first aid and small beach bars in ummer. There are also several small natural coves backing onto the cliffs.

There are two sports marinas on the Costa for water sports.

The largest shopping centre on the Costa Blanca is under 15 minutes walk from the house, Zenia Boulevard, boasting 150 shops, bars, restaurants, children's soft plat area, bowling, casino and free daily entertainment.

Travel:

From Alicante Airport it takes around 40 minutes to drive to Playa Flamenca. Murcia (San Javier) Airport is a 20 minute drive. Playa Flamenca is easily accessed from either the N332 coast road or the AP7 motorway. A hire car is not essential as amenities are within walking distance and there are local buses. Our keyholders can provide airport transfers by arrangement if you are not hiring a car.

Distances:

The house is close to local shops, including a large supermarket and the huge Zenia Boulevard shopping mall complex. The local Saturday market takes place very nearby. There are tourist attractions to suit all tastes: go-karting, museums, horse riding, quad biking, water parks, zoo, water sports, walks, salt lakes, bowling and just down the road is the famous Mar Menor, known for its water sports and mud baths! There are details of attractions and activities at the house.

Further Details:

At the house you will find telephone numbers for local taxi's, medical centre and airports. There are business cards for various 'tried and tested' restaurants within the local area. The Flamenca Beach Commercial Centre, local Via Park centres and the huge Zenia Boulevard complex cater for all types of food lovers. There are also beachside cafes and restaurants open for breakfast right through to super time so you can look at the sea while enjoying your meal.

Local shops sell souvenirs and crafts and there are several supermarkets and banks. At Zenia Boulevard there is a bowling alley, around 150 shops, bars, restaurants and daily free entertainment - less than 15 minutes walk from the house.

Locally there are markets, go-karts and a small fun fair in main season. There is a water park close by, (transport can be provided to there by our keyholders), from June to September. Within a short drive are riding facilities, off-road quad biking and water sports.
