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. Just off the kitchen is a galleria that leads to the roof terrace. There are 2 large storage cupboards in the galleria where we store Henry the vacuum cleaner, dishwasher salt, rinse aid, various cleaning products, bin liners etc. I stock it up and just hope people replace when it's gone, if not I'll replace when I'm out. There's nothing worse than having to buy cleaning, washing up products when you arrive. 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 provide plenty of towels, lovely fresh white bath sheets and bath towels which we replace regularly.

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.

Our villa is maintained and updated regularly, we visit 3 times a year and always have a project to do. This year at Easter we built a pergola over our outdoor dining area, replaced the American fridge freezer and painted and spruced everything up for the new season. We visit again this August and are replacing the terrace furniture and starting on our indoor kitchen project which will take a few visits to complete but after each of our visits there will be noticeable differences. As you can see, we like to spend time and money on our villa to ensure we and our guests have a fantastic stay. So many villa owners take your money but don't re-invest it into the villa. Please keep checking my page for updated photos.

A departure clean of €80 is payable on arrival to our Agent who will greet you at the villa.

For a quote for your dates please submit an enquiry through the link. You will see that Home Away make a small charge for you booking through them but they provide a safe and secure payment method and you can also pay by credit card which gives you extra security. You also receive the benefit of HomeAway liability insurance during your stay at our villa and have access to their 24/7 helpline. It is adviseable that you never book through a link that takes you away from the owners direct/Home Away website and never pay by bank transfer unless you know the owners.

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 visit ourselves quite often and rent it out to help cover the cost of owning and running it. 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 6 sunloungers. There is a covered dining area and outdoor kitchen for outside dining and a luxury corner seating set on the terrace for relaxing and a poolside table and benches. Our villa caters for children, there are various ride on toys and scooters and 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. 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. Extra chargeable mid stay clean available on request Other: outside rear utility area leading from the kitchen and leads up to a roof-top solarium with washing line. The villa conforms to all safety regulations, there are 2 smoke alarms. CO Detector not required as there are no gas and flue appliances. CHANGEOVER DAY - SATURDAY IN HIGH SEASON

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.

It was lovely!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay, it had everything we needed and more, everyone was comfortable! The only thing that could have made it better is the pay by air-con although we didn't mind paying going to get change every other day was not ideal.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review, we're so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our villa. Thank you for your comment regarding change for the aircon meters. We do put credit on the meters on arrival so that guests do not have to worry about having to find change immediately. We do also advise on the website that the meters take €1 coins. Having spoken with Maxine, she is now going to ensure she has some euro coins with her when she greets guests at the villa in case anyone wishes to purchase some. Thanks again for highlighting this as we do want our guests to have a perfect holiday and we cannot rectify these problems if we are not made aware of them. Many thanks for choosing our villa for your holiday stay and it will be a pleasure to welcome you back in the future. Maureen and Dave

Absolutely fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! Maureen was so helpful with the booking of the villa. She talked me through the accommodation on the phone and the villa layout, very useful when you have a 3 year old who likes to run around. I found her really kind and took alot of time to answer our questions and really professional.

The villa came with a play house, children's toys and scooters which gave the children a welcome break from the sun. There was also a swing set and lots of inflatables, including a boat. The boys spent hours in that! :-)

The American fridge was perfect for the hot sunny days. Cold water and ice when you needed it. Loads of kitchen equipment, more than I have in my own house!

I would recommend having a car, the supermarket and beach were both within a short drive but not walkable.

We went to the Aqua Flamingo waterpark which was only 25 minutes drive away which the children loved. The villa is in a great location with everything you need under 30 minutes (including the airport).

The fans worked really well, we did also use the air-conditioning units through the night. 1€ worked for 90 minutes which I thought was reasonable.

Maxine who met us on our arrival was very friendly and knowledgeable. She was easily contactable via WhatsApp during our stay answering questions quickly.

Overall a fantastic villa for all our group who ranged from 65 years old to 12 weeks old. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Pool was clean with 6 sunloungers next to it and 2 huge parisols. Perfect for keeping an eye on the kids but also relaxing.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful holiday and letting our family use the villa. Travelling with a 12 week old baby was hardwork but arriving at the villa and seeing how amazing it was made it all worthwhile! :-)

Beautiful well equipped villa with a gorgeous pool and outside kitchen and BBQ area

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 6 adults, there was plenty of space for us all with a well equipped kitchen and enough crockery for two or more meals. The outdoor kitchen was great and we had some fun making some pizzas and using the pizza oven! The pool was just so lovely it was well used .We enjoyed the bars and restaurants which were about a 10-15 minute walk away and supermarkets close by- however you do need a car to shop or go to the beach. Overall a great villa and a lovely family holiday to treasure- thanks Maureen

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a thoroughly relaxing 2 weeks here. Everything was spot on. Location, pool, furnishings, Xbox, wifi I could go on and on. Apart from shopping, we only left the villa twice once to the water park which was great and once to the beach which was also great. This villa just has everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

We hope to return one day.

Excellent, clean Villa.

  • 5 of 5

We all had a fabulous time in this villa. It had everything. My kids loved the pool an thought the pool was "epic". Overall the villa is well maintained & well looked after. The bars and restaurants are only 10mins walk from the Villa. A car is needed to venture out. This villa is a credit to Maureen. Thankyou Hardip x
