Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed October 9, 2013 for a stay in September 2013



We stayed at Villa Jacinto at the end of September 2013 with a family group, ranging from age 2 up to age 65



The information provided before your stay is comprehensive and well thought out. Really felt totally informed prior to our visit



The villa itself is lovely. The location is peaceful and yet convenient for Javea itself. There are wonderful views from the roof terrace to the sea and Ibiza could even be seen on a clear day! The roof terrace has locked, gated access providing peace of mind ensuring our little boy could not access the area. The pool and outside area, featuring the outside kitchen, is fabulous and was a real feature of the property. The pool has a shallow and deep end, which many properties do not have that we have rented before, so is a bonus for non and non-confident swimmers. The whole of the outside entertainment area is on one level, which was fantastic for our 2 year old boy.



Reviewed July 2014, for a 10 day stay in June 2014 -



" We have recently returned from a 10 night holiday staying at Villa Jacinto, Balcon Al Mar and, didn't want to come home! The villa itself is very comfortable & extremely well equipped - Greg & Jacky have thought of everything. The outside entertainment area includes pool complete with inflatables, undercover naya with outside kitchen, dining area & welcome shade. Beautiful gardens surround the villa - it was a pleasure to water the plants. Finally there is a fantastic roof terrace, providing glorious views of the sea (even saw Ibiza one day) and, a great place for evening drinks.

We celebrated Father's Day with lunch at El Mirador Restaurant, close to the lighthouse, a short drive or 15 minute walk from the villa. The view from the outside balcony, where we chose to eat, is breathtaking. Their chicken & apple salad with a tangy curry dressing was delicious accompanied by a carafe of white wine.

Will we be returning to Villa Jacinto next year? It's a resounding "yes" from all three of us!"

A beautiful villa in tranquil setting, lovely gardens pool, everything for a perfect family holiday.

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish the whole experience of booking Villa Jacinto fulfilled my every expectation. The owners go in detail to ensure the booking and "what, where and how"" process is smooth and clear. The pictures provided struggle to do justice to the real beauty of the villa with everything it enjoys both inside and outside especially the breathtaking views of the area.

My family holidays in villas over the last 15 years in this area meant I have a good knowledge of the region and all its facilities, but this specific experience of Jacinto is by far one of the best; the accessibility to the local communities of Javea and Moraira for the endless variety of restauranst and Spanish ambiance you can wish for, together with I believe to be the best beaches in Spain, make this a wonderful choice to enjoy a memorable holiday.

Basic given is car hire, "Do you Spain" is highly recommended and the fantastic information pack provided prior to holiday from Greg consists of everything you need to know how to get to Jacinto and the most out of your holiday. Enjoy, this is one villa that I would definitely return to without question.

Died and Gone to Heaven

  • 5 of 5

The Villa and it's Location in our opinion is perfect! Quiet and peaceful with beautiful views from the Roof Terrace. There are hardly any negatives with regard to the Villa so not even going to bother to mention them. We were a party of six (4 Adults 1 teenager and a ten year old) and the facilities were very well appreciated. The Pool, Gas or Charcoal Barbie, The lovely Naya, The Roof Terrace, The welcome pack etc. Don't like plastic glasses but understand the reason for them and no big deal really. We would thoroughly reccomend the Villa and we are looking forward to coming here again.

Villa was lovely, in a great location and ideal for families

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here in the villa. We were over for a wedding and the location couldn't have been any better with the venue being literally steps away (a friends villa). The villa was clean with fresh bedding and they accommodated our needs of having a toddler cot available & highchair.

The real positives of the villa were the cleanliness, the little informative notes within the villa showing us the best places to go, the outside dining area and BBQ is great, and the overall spacious feeling within the villa.

There are no real negatives about the villa, we had a few ants at times but nothing a quick spray of the repellant couldn't sort.

Overall we loved our stay here and would definitely book to stay here again.

Villa Jacinto, Balcon Al Mar

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4 stayed for a week at this villa. It is a lovely, well furnished & maintained accommodation, complete with a good sized swimming pool and two separate areas for a BBQ. It had everything we could wish for, both inside and out, and was exactly as described.

Whilst the vacinity of the villa is quiet, there are several restaurants/bars nearby within approx. 20 minutes walk whilst the larger Arenal resort is within 15 minutes drive with its comprehensive range of shops, restaurants and bars, together with a long stretch of sandy beach.

This villa is ideal for a relaxed, private holiday. We all enjoyed our week here and would thoroughly recommend it.

Nice Villa, Awful Location

  • 3 of 5

For me and my family the reason for booking this villa was the numerous restaurants within walking distance. Yes there was some walkable, but as the Villa is perched at the top of the hill there is a steep walk in every direction. So not good for people with walking difficulties either through age or disability.

The villa itself is laid out very nicely. We did have an issue with the shower in the master bedroom not working when we got there, but Tim kindly fixed this the next day. The shower did break again though in the second week and wasn't fixed. The same for the dishwasher, it packed up mid cycle in the second week, that also went unfixed.

There are plenty of "rules" to follow, notes are on almost every wall. Also, there is no proper glasses in the villa, just plastic. Wine in plastic glasses is not a good mix so we brought a cheap set of 6 tumblers from the Consum.

We made use of the lovely pool everyday and enjoyed some BBQ's as well, and we did feel relaxed in the villa.

If you do make the journey out for a meal, both Casa Pepe (5 mins walk to the right) or Azahar (10 min walk to the left) are both good restaurants.

Greg & Jackie do provide a good info pack which you receive a few weeks before you leave, some of the info is slightly out of date (No El Faro restaurant for example) but still good useful information.

One last negative, check your welcome pack when you arrive. We had no bread, cheese, butter or biscuits.

Overall, if you are fit, then there are places to walk to, the view from the sun terrace is good, the villa was clean and tidy, the pool lovely, choice of Gas or Charcoal BBQ and nice comfortable beds.

Owner's Response: This review has really upset Jacky and I hugely, also Tim and Lyn our housekeepers at a time of deep distress for them following the recent fire in the Javea area and the specific effect of it on them. This has been a very tough year at the villa for one reason and another - yet despite all that the villas equipment has thrown at us, we have tried to maintain our standards and tried the best that we could for our guests. We could respond specifically to some statements made on this review regarding "unfixed" items, but we would rather just say that our housekeepers recollection of words spoken is somewhat different. The dishwasher was fixed immediately after the departure of these guests and the shower valve will be remedied when the replacement arrives from the UK next week. I as the owner offered my personal time and assistance if required when the shower first became faulty but I received no further communication during the guests two week stay. The so called "rules" are predominantly advisory notices designed for the benefit and welfare of our guests. We do not consider these to be rules, but cannot decide how different people perceive them. No proper glasses - a few years ago, one of our guests decided that allowing glass to be smashed in the pool was no big deal - it cost us 500 euros to deal with and rendered the pool unusable for a while - having the inconvenience of quality plastic glasses is in our opinion a small price to pay! Out of date information on the welcome pack - our error - we are human though and despite our best efforts we are not perfect - the problem is that in Spain, things change without notice, for example, the supermarket that we had on the details for many years closed suddenly without notice and whilst we try and capture all change as soon as we can, occasionally we leave the odd matter incorrectly noted - we apologise for any slight inaccuracy. The "last negative", Tim is most apologetic about this. He had the items in a cool box in his car, but the guests arrived earlier than the allotted time, and although they went for lunch, Tim tried to get the villa ready for them to enjoy an earlier arrival. In his haste, he accidentally forgot to leave the said items, only realizing this on his return home. The only time in 8 years of letting that this has happened! We are grateful for the positive comments but human nature being what it is, the negatives outweigh the positives to us as owners and we are very upset.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this villa and didn't want to leave !. The pool was great and we spent a lot of time in it then eating outside in the naya with the outdoor kitchen & barbeque which made cooking a lot more pleasurable. There was everything you could want for a relaxing holiday and the location was pretty good with a shop & several restaurants within walking distance. Other bigger shops were a short drive away as were beaches, a small pebbly one in a cove at Granadellla which got very busy so get there early or Javea with its sandy beach and promenade of restaurants and shops where we went several times. The property was very clean as was the pool and was all as described. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend it

Location

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beach is 4 minutes drive away (Barraca or Granadella both pebble beaches). The main sandy beach at the Arenal (Javea) is approx 7 mins drive away.

Travel:

Airports serving the location generally are Alicante approx 85kms and Valencia approx 100kms.

Airlines to choose from include Easyjet, Ryanair, Monarch, Flybe, British Airways, Thomsonfly, Norwegian.

Car hire is recommended as the most economical solution for getting from the airport to and from the villa.There are several car hire companies operating out of both airports which can be located via the internet.

Distances:

Javea is approx 7 minutes away by car. The Cabo De La Nao lighthouse is 15 minute walk away. The nearest supermarket is 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive away

Further Details:

The coastal and stylish town of Javea has three distinct areas of interest for the holiday visitor. The Arenal with its' sandy beach and the Port, linked by a beautiful stretch of rocky beach, and the Old Town (Pueblo). The Old Town is typically Spanish with many whitewashed buildings, narrow streets, squares, a beautiful church and pavement eating places. The Port has a thriving fish market, is still a working port and has a yacht club/marina, as well as a pebble beach and numerous shops and sea front restaurants. The palm lined beach at El Arenal has a flat sandy beach, ringed by a semi circular flat promenade which houses many restaurants and bars. The forty minute or so stroll to and from the port to the Arenal is flat, but if you don't fancy the return walk, buses and a little taxi train (in the summer months) will bring you back to your starting point.

Market day in Javea is Thursday and is held in the Old Town. Javea has two fiestas each year, the first in June held in the Old Town, and the second in September held in the Port. Both include colourful processions, dancing, bull running and firework displays.

Balcon Al Mar has several good quality restaurants which can be walked to and from the villa, but as the villa is on a hill, a few minutes of walking up/down hill is required. A tennis club, supermarket, bakery and hairdressers are all within walking distance of the villa. The There is a bus service with a stop nearby the villa which will take you to Javea stopping at various points on route to the Old Town. A timetable can be obtained from the tourist office in the Port.

There is tennis both locally and in the Arenal area of Javea.
