About the Owner
Up to now I have lived in London until 5 years ago when I moved to Spain to care for my elderly parents who are both Spanish. I am located 30 miles north of Madrid and am enjoying the quieter life against the constant fast pace in London.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Warren Nicholson and Victoria Nicholson Essex 01/08/2014: "We really enjoyed our stay. While we relaxed and enjoyed our break our Daughters enjoyed the night life and the karaoke evenings in the local bar, often visited Torrevieja during the day and also in the evenings. The area is ideal, and so is the apartment."
Mr and Mrs. Buckley London 21/08/2014: "The apartment was just as described in the advert, brilliant, loved the location. We will seriously consider returning, Can recommend"
4.8 based on 8 holidaymaker reviews
Well equipped, close to the beach and good local ammieneties
Frank is a very attentive host who couldn't have done enough for you. Fortunately we know the punta prima area and the development work going on, which might not suit everyone with the view from the balcony. There was a down side with the swimming pools as there was no area around the pools to sunbathe after a swim. There are lots of lovely restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the apartment, it is a comfortable and ideal base to explore the area with a good bus service and we will diffently staying there again. Thank you frank.

Lovely relaxing apartment
We stayed here mid September for a week and found the apartment A1 to our requirements. The position of the apartment and safe environment with its clean surrounding gardens made us feel relaxed and chilled. The apartment was clean and provided us with everything we could have wished for. Great place and would recommend to anyone wanting a good priced value for money holiday. The communication with the owner is fantastic and the meet and greet is terrific too. Thanks so much for the chance to chill out in a great environment.
Clean, tidy, peaceful, excellent location. Very quiet area, but within walking distance of beach, shops, restaurants. 2 nice communal pools, everything you need is in the apartment.
We spent a week here, and it was 5*, had everything we needed, we felt safe and secure, knowing we had a security guard patrolling the whole complex. The apartment is beautiful, clean and well cared for, and close to shops, bars, restaurants, and the supermarket. The beach is less than a 5 minute walk away, which also has bars and a restaurant too. If you didn't want to go anywhere, it is lovely to sit on the balcony (which is huge) enjoy a drink, or a meal..Overall i would recommend this property to anyone who's thinking of going to Punta Prima, you will not be disappointed..oh and the air-con, is superb..
Hemos pasado unos días preciosos de sol y playa con mi familia en Punta Prima. Ante todo destacar que el apartamento es precioso,cómodo,limpio y muy funcional.Tiene todas las comodidades necesarias para pasar una buena estancia.Ropa de cama, toallas y todo los enseres de cocina.
Sobre todo destacar que su dueño,Frank , es una persona de las que hoy se encuentran pocas, atento a nuestras necesidades y a nuestro bienestar; muy amable. Agradecemos profundamente su preocupación por resolver los inconvenientes que tuvimos con el coche.
En resumen una estancia de 10!
Recomendaré esta propiedad a mis amigos.
La playa muy bien y en Nautilus y Sunrise sirven unos ricos cockteles. Las playas Flamenca y Zenia están a 5 minutos de allí. en el Centro comercial de Zenia el restaurante Muerde la Pasta muy buena comida y atención.
No recomiendo el Buffet wok (en el polígono donde esta el Consume) de punta Prima.
From the Owner
“I bought the apartment in 2008. Madrid has a climate of two extremes very dry and hot in the Summer and dry and cold in the Winter. I wanted an area that provided a pleasant climate, hot Summers and mild Winters. Punta Prima, south of Torrevieja Alicante has just what I was looking for. The area is beautiful with a selection of beaches and peaceful walks. Due to the mild temperatures there is an abundance of palm trees which catch the attention due to their size. The resort is easily accessible from Alicante Airport(45 minutes) San Javier Murcia Airport (25 minutes) Pick up service available on request ask when booking.”
Activity and Interests
The local sandy beach is only 200m walk away and numerous other beautiful beaches within easy walking. There is an additional secluded beach 5 minutes stroll away with palms trees a bar and a lift for easy access for pushchairs or wheelchairs. There is also a first class restaurant with a large patio where there are dances at weekends during the Summer.
Alicante Airport 45 minutes away, San Javier Airport Murcia 25 minutes away,makes this an attractive resort for short breaks or golfing weekends.
Pick up service available ask when booking. Taxis and regular bus service available to take you to Torrevieja, Murcia and further distances. Corvera airport(Murcia) is scheduled to open in 2015 and is 40 minutes away.

La Zenia shopping center 15 minutes away The area has been voted as one of the healthiest climates in Spain. The local salt lakes clears the atmosphere and dramatically reduce the humidity levels.
This plus the many months of sunshine make this an appealing resort.
There are spa baths to be found around the salt lakes where you can bathe and feel rejuvenated.
Torrevieja has become a popular resort since financial investment by the local council. The Vista Allegre,a half mile traffic free promenade surrounded by bars,cafes and restaurants where you can sit and watch all the entertainment
of traders selling their wares,the flambuoyent street performers trying to catch the attention of the passers by. Or just watch the locals discussing the day´s events. Playa de los Locos and Playa de los Curas are among a number of beautiful beaches just off the promenade. The marina is worth a visit if only to catch the boat that takes you around the bay. Torrevieja has an excellent market once a week as well as other markets at Playa Flamenca or Guadamar which are a short bus ride away. Alicante has some of the best beaches in Spain and is only 50 minutes away. Also a large marina,a castle and a multitude of shops and restaurants. Benidorm famous for the award winning comedy series of the same name,where you will find a vibrant lifestyle attracting both young and old, well worth a visit. The cities of Orihuela, Murcia and Cartagena will appeal to those who want to know more of the culture and history of the region.
La Manga and Mar Menor have lots to offer from some excellent golf courses to some tranquil beaches. In addition, a fiesta can be found almost all year round in a local village or town.
