Overview

About the property

Detached Private Luxury Villa in peaceful location but close to beach and amenities

This beautiful villa has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and will appeal to those of you wanting that little extra luxury.

The villa has an American Fridge/Freezer so you don't have the cost of buying water as the water is filtered and cooled through the fridge and it also makes endless supplies of ice. There is also a dishwasher (you are on holiday after all!!). Our kitchen cupboards are well stocked with kitchen crockery, cutlery and utensils, it is a kitchen home from home, we even have a Dolce Gusto coffee maker and good quality 4 slice toaster and Breville cup kettle. It certainly is not your usual basic villa rental kitchen. We appreciate you may not want to be spending your holiday cooking meals for everyone in the villa - so we have built a fantastic outdoor kitchen area with BBQ and pizza oven so you can cook outdoors if you wish ....and you don't just have to cook pizzas in the pizza oven!! The outdoor dining area is covered by a pergola to provide shade whilst dining and is lit by solar lanterns at night.

The terrace is partly enclosed and has luxury relaxing terrace furniture for the adults to relax in with a glass of wine on an evening. The terrace sideboard contains beach towels, selection of books, board games, first aid kit, sewing kit, speaker to connect your iPhone or smart phone and various other essentials you would have at home.

The living room has a new flat screen TV with USB port so you can bring your children's downloaded favourite programmes and films. We have all English Channels and an X Box with a variety of games and DVD's to watch and there is an aircon unit with hot and cold temperature control.

Each bedroom also has individual aircon units, again with hot and cold temperature control. The bedding is 100% white Egyptian cotton for coolness in the summer.

We have ceiling fans in every room and on the terrace outside, they are a necessity in summer and really do keep the villa cool.

The villa is set on a 525 sq metre plot and is totally private and secure. The garden has been designed with children in mind, it is flat and has been flagged rather than tiled. Tiles heat up in the sun and you cannot walk on them without burning your feet, you will find you can walk on the flags quite comfortably. We have a wooden playhouse with play kitchen, table and chairs, toy pushchair, dolls, cars, train set, blackboard and some ride on toys, scooters, trike and there is a swing/seesaw combination. The pool has steps at the shallow end where small children can play. We have a large banana parasol and a large tilt parasol to provide plenty of shade if required. There is plenty of seating areas and sun loungers outside and also a rooftop solarium with a table and chairs.

The villa is situated in a peaceful location with mountain views from the terrace and is about 10-15mins walk to the nearest commercial zone where there is a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops and La Marina beach is about 6 mins drive away. The villa is only 20mins drive from Alicante airport and it is centrally based for visits to Alicante, Benidorm, Javea, Altea or south to Guardamar, Torrevieja, Playa Flamenca or Cabo Roig.

About Maureen Bennett

Hi. My name is Maureen and I'm married to David, we have 2 sons and a daughter - Daniel aged 27, Thomas aged 22 and Millie who is 14 years old. I work part-time as a Doctor's Receptionist and David is a self-employed Plasterer with his own business. We also have a property Development company and so we love to escape to Spain for some sun and a bit of relaxation when we can. We like our comforts while on holiday and that is why our villa is maintained to a high standard with quality furniture and furnishings - it's our home from home. When we are not visiting our Spanish Villa we like to visit Florida and rent private villas using ownersdirect. I know what it's like, searching for the perfect villa and I do not mind at all if you phone me to ask questions about the villa or area.

Maureen Bennett purchased this villa in 2004

Why Maureen Bennett chose Elche Area

We went on a property inspection trip in March 2003 with my parents and fell in love with La Marina. We bought our villa off plan, as did my parents and sold up in England and moved to Spain. We rented a property and watched our villa being built. Finally in December 2004 we moved in and it became our home with no expense spared on fittings and furniture. We love the area, it is very quiet with lovely views but we are within walking distance to shops and bars. We also fell in love with La Marina beach, it is only a few minutes drive away but it is beautiful. When we lived there we often went down to the beach in the evenings. Unfortunately we felt we had to move back to the UK in January 2006 for business and career prospects in the UK.

What makes this villa unique

When we returned to England, we left everything in Spain and started again in England. We love our villa and the location so much that we did not want to sell it. We go there ourselves quite often and rent it out to help cover the cost of owning and running it until we retire and then the rentals will stop. We decorate every year and are constantly renewing and refreshing things so that our villa never looks tired. We like to be comfortable ourselves when we holiday, I like to feel I am home from home, which I am here just with the added benefit of a private pool. Ours is not a basic holiday villa, it is our home which we are quite happy to share with you at the moment. We like our villa to stand out from the rest and this does reflect in the amount of bookings we get.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You beat me to it – its been mad since we got back and haven’t had chance to email you yet and say what a beautiful villa you have. It was a lovely holiday – just right for us. We couldn't have picked a better place to be! I loved the cleanliness of your home. It had everything we needed. The dining area and pool outside were just great– everything was just right! Haven’t stopped raving about it since we got back! Will certainly recommend to all our friends and hopefully book again soon. Many thanks for sharing your lovely villa with us. Rachel



Thanks for a great holiday, your villa was perfect very relaxing and clean. Kids loved the pool,the toys the American fridge with ice on demand. We would definitely use the villa again and have mentioned to friends about it. Ill be in touch for our next visit in the very near future. Thanks again, William.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: The villa has air-conditioning units in each bedroom and the living room and this is paid for via coin meters in the villa.This ensures that the units are not left running when not needed and because its `Pay as you Go' we can keep our rental costs down.The meters take €1 coins but we will ensure that there is 6 hours credit on each metre at the begining of your stay. Air-con is really only needed in high summer, but the villas are designed to be cool so if shutters are kept closed against the sun, air con use will be minimal. Every room has ceiling fans, the bedroom fans are remote controlled, quiet and highly efficient to keep the bedrooms cool during the night, you will find you will not need air conditioning quite so much, if at all with these fans. For the teenagers we have unlimited WIFI so they can keep in touch with their friends in England. Having children ourselves and spending many weeks in our villa, we know exactly what is required to meet everyones needs. Outside: Outside there is a 8x4m pool and sunloungers and swinging hammock. There is a table and 6 chairs near the outdoor kitchen area for outside dining and a luxury table and 4 comfortable chairs on the terrace and a poolside table and benches. Our villa caters for children, there is a swing combination and swing and climbing frame for toddlers. There is a wooden Wendy House with a good selection of toys in there including play kitchen and equipment, table and chairs, blackboard, dolls and pram, cars, train set, buckets and spades and we even have ride on toys and scooters. There is an outdoor kitchen area with BBQ and Pizza Oven, the pizza oven can be used to cook anything that a conventional oven will cook but tastes so much better. The garden is private and secure and has off-street parking for 2 cars. The property is alarmed. Bed linen is changed before each changeover and may be washed by yourselves if necessary using the washing machine, all towels are provided for use inside and beach towels are provided for use outdoors.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this villa about six times now and always have a great time, it's very well maintained and extremely clean, the owners are always doing work on the villa to improve it inside and out. Their priority is to make sure you enjoy yourself and feel comfortable in the villa. It has an amazing pool which we use all the time. It's just a short walk to the nearest shops and restaurant. Maxine who come to meet you and cleans the villa is lovely and nothing is too much trouble.

Can't wait until we can return again next year.

5* accommodation

Recently stayed for 1 week with a 5 year old and a 2 year old. Immaculate accommodation with excellent facilities throughout. The pool area, BBQ and pizza oven were perfect, close to local supermarkets and an easy drive to/from the airport.

Thank you

Fantastic villa for relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

First time we have stayed at Maureen and Daves superb villa which is a credit to them.This villa is really a home from home, with all mod cons.Pool was a good size and used every day! Ice/ water dispenser on fridge freezer was a godsend, good location on the urbanisation, a hassle free holiday from the time of first enquiry with Maureen. Can't wait to book again. Chris, Emma, Charlie & Rosie

Sit back, relax and BBQ.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is a credit to its owners, everything you want and much more.

If you want to go and relax it's perfect.

Most of our days were spent relaxing round the pool whilst our 9 year old son was in it. Then evenings around the BBQ area followed by cards on the terrace with a few drinks.

My 18 year old daughter and her boyfriend went up to bars most nights and reported many happy hours and a warm welcome from all.

Plenty of shops, local bars and small supermarket all within walking distance, the Final Whistle is well recommended for football fans and a friendly welcome.

We had a car and would recommended if you want to venture out a little more, only 10 mins drive from the beach and 5 minutes drive to Lidl, Iceland and Mercadona supermarket for all your supplies.

You get a really nice welcome from Maxine on arrival and nothing is to much trouble for her if you have any problems.

Thank you to Maureen and Dave for letting us stay and will definitely consider returning next year when booking our next holiday.

Amazing Villa-great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The villa we stayed in for a week was fantastic and could not off asked for a better location. Family off four with 2 girls aged 11 and 10 and grandparents joined us for 3 days, nice big rooms with wifi, amazing pool. We rented a car from alicante airport put in the address with google maps and got straight there. Straight run on the n332 about 25-30 mins. There are loads of great restaurants, patagonia argentinian steakhouse and the grillhouse favourites, nice italian too la terrezza. Great waterpark aquapolis(saved 24 euros by buying online.) 25 mins away in torrevieja-which has a great market with fair and beachfront. La marina beach is literally 8mins by car and there is an iceland supermercdio aldi and china shop 2 mins away by car. The villa was really clean and well kept and maxine/dave brilliant. The girls loved the pool and plenty of room for 6. The was a market we went to on the thursday which was 5 mins away easy to find and great for the girls and tat. Would higly recommend this villa and will definitely be staying again-girls already pestering us haha. Great info on the homeaway site and maureen was really helpful with any queries. Brilliant villa holiday and service. ps have already recommended this villa to colleagues and family and freinds.
