About the property

Villa in Cabo Roig, Costa Blanca ?Quiet Location but Close to Beaches and e

The villa is set on a very friendly, quiet urbanisation in a cul-de-sac with the lovely swimming pool just 80m away. All bedrooms and the lounge has air conditioning. Two bedrooms have twin beds whilst the one on the ground floor has a double, which is perfect for anyone not wishing to climb the stairs. Opposite this bedroom is the shower room and toilet so any senior guests have no need to go upstairs. The lounge/diner has two settees, one of which is a fold down double bed with an additional single bed that you can pull out from underneath. There is a dining table and chairs, stereo, 32" TV and FREE WI FI.

Outside the front door we have a table and chairs on the patio which is ideal to just sit and relax.

As well as the two bedrooms on the first floor we have the family bathroom which boast a shower and bidet, then connecting the two bedrooms is a nice balcony which catches the morning sun.

There is a sun terrace on the roof, another at the front and off street parking.

The shops, bars and restaurants that make up the local ‘strip’ are 5 minutes walk away with the nearest beach a further 10 minutes walk. There are 4 blue flag beaches within a 5 minute car ride and all have fantastic sand and lovely clear warm water. Each beach has its own bar serving drinks, tapas and burgers etc and they all play a bit of music to listen to.

It really is an ideal location as its quiet but 5-10 minutes walk to the "Strip" in one direction and De Stefanos and La Zenia Boulevard shopping Mall in the other.

About Marc Fletcher

Louise and myself, Marc, have enjoyed many fantastic holidays here in the sunshine of Spain.Together we have watched our two sons play in the sea and on the beaches and they are now old enough to come over on their own. Louise works as a receptionist in a doctors surgery and I am a carpenter so we always look forward to a week or twos rest and relaxation.

The house is far too nice to be empty most of the year so come and enjoy yourselves, I know you will.

Marc Fletcher purchased this house in 2002

Why Marc Fletcher chose La Zenia

We bought our villa for the quality of the design and build and the location.You can always rely on the weather, the beaches are close by and you have a choice of 5 within 5 minutes drive and every one of them is fantastic with lovely golden sand and clear warm water. Throughout the summer each beach has a bar which serves hot meals and plays relaxing music. Two of these beaches, La Zenia and Playa de la Glea have water sports and usually have waves to play in but if you like it a bit calmer for the little ones the Capitan or Cabo Roig beaches might be better. On an evening it is only a 7 minute walk to the many bars and restaurants down at "The Strip" where every taste and quality of eatery is catered for. At the end of the day we like to relax on the terrace with a small glass of wine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brilliant location, brilliant neighbours and brilliant weather, we'll be back.

The kids had a fantastic time, they loved the pool and beaches and can't wait to go again.

Thanks for a lovely relaxing holiday in your superb house, just what I needed.

House was lovely and clean. Philly was wonderful and met us when we arrived. The house was really central for beaches, bars resteraunts and shops. We had a really good reasonably priced meal at the orange tree on the Cabo Roig strip. I would highly recommend the house and area to family and friends

Great 3 bed apartment, very clean, tons of room

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, Mum and I stayed in Marc's apartment for two weeks. It's in a fantastic location, is very clean, and homely.

The bedrooms are spacious with loads of storage, as is the upstairs bathroom, with tons of towels.

The welcome pack was a lovely touch too, as we didn't expect it. It let us have a coffee when we arrived, which was just what we needed!

The downstairs bedroom and shower room were great for my Mum, saved her going up the stairs all the time.

The roof deck is lovely with great views. We used the downstairs outside eating area all the time, it's in the sun till around early afternoon, so is great to sit at night and chill out.

The communal pool are is just lovely, large pool, with lots of room to swim and sunbathe.

You can walk to the strip with bars and restaurants in 5-10 minutes, and La Zenia Boulevard is a 5 minute drive, or a 15 minute walk.

We would definitely recommend Marc's apartment, and will use it again.

Special interest holidays:

Although we don't provide anything, we are a 45 minute drive away from some of the best scuba diving in the Mediterranian at Cabo de Palos.I dive with Planeta Azul who are very helpful and can hire you all necessary equipment. I have seen grouper, Eagle Rays, Sun fish, Barracuda and Moray Eels to name but a few.

We are also close to many golf courses including Compoamar and Villamartin which I am told are both excellent.

The beach at LA Zenia has all the water sports activities to hire and, like the other 3 local ones, has lovely sand and clear waters and a great beach bar where you can listen to some music whilst enjoying a cool drink and some Tapas.

There is also horse riding, freshwater fishing, river rafting, paint balling and para gliding to be found further inland near Orihuela.

Closer to home there is a great Go cart track just down the road and in Torrevieja there is a lovely water park to discover, it's great fun.

For anyone interested in birds there is the salt lagoons near Torrevieja which attract Flamingoes which feed on the brine shrimp or you can have a tour of the salt works!

One things for sure, you won't get bored!


Our nearest beach is Cabo Roig and is 15 minutes walk away but if you have a car there are 4 more all within 5 minutes drive. All the beaches have lovely golden sands and each has a bar that also serves English snacks as well as tapas. The water is nice and warm and crystal clear and good for snorkelling and swimming and some beaches have water sports for hire.

Google earth co ordinates are 37 55' 09"N 0 44'23.89"W


Nearest airport is Murcia which is 20 minutes drive or Alicante which is 45 minutes drive. Car hire is not essential but it is recommended for a more enjoyable holiday. Remember to book your car early as it is much cheaper and you don't pay until you pick it up. Airport pickup can be arranged.


Approx driving times: Torrevieja 10 minutes. Alicante 45 minutes. Murcia 40 minutes. Cartegena 40 minutes. Cabo de Palos 45 minutes. Benidorm (Terra Mittica theme park) 1¼ hour.

Further Details:

There are too many restaurants to mention, your best bet is to try them for yourselves. We have eaten in many very nice restaurants very near to our villa and also at villamartin plaza where there are about 25 set in a lovely square with palms and wild parrots flying around.

the "strip" is under 10 minutes walk away and has everything you need from posh restaurants to takeaways, banks and supermarkets and 24hr shops, car hire and pharmacys.

go karts are just around the corner and there is a water park in torrevieja which is next to los habeneros shopping mall which the ladies are sure to enjoy.

anyone who likes scuba diving must go to cabo de palos for some of the best diving in the mediteranean. There is a marine reserve just offshore and its fantastic.

if you want to go further affield then there is the terra mittica theme park overlooking benidorm and also a bigger water park and of course the shops and beaches of benidorm.

10 minutes south of our house is the mar menar which is an inland sea and if you go to a place called lo pagan you can bathe in the sulpher lagoons with the locals. This hot mud is meant to have healing powers and is very popular with the local elderly population. It is great fun and has to be experienced to be beleived.

a brand new shopping mall, The Zenia Boulavard, has now opened containing up to 150 new shops and is less than a mile away.

Booking Notes:
Non refundable deposit of £100 is required to secure your booking then final balance 8 weeks before your holiday. Prices now include cleaning and "meet and greet" when you arrive.
On arrival, I will need a 100 euro deposit incase of damage but more importantly to cover the cost of over excessive use of the air con. Some guests have the air con on all day even when they're out, leave windows open and even leave it on when they go. This is just a deterrent and hopefully will never be enforced.

Changeover Day:
Please contact owner for details. This can be any day you like to fit in with the best flights for you.

Notes on prices:
Prices are in English Pounds per week.
There is a cleaning and laundry surcharge of £20 per person, for parties over 4 people, per booking.
