5 star villa
We have stayed at Peter's villa for the past two years running and have just booked up again for summer 2017. It's a lovely, spacious villa perfect for a family with children! It contains everything you need and want for a relaxing holiday with an added bonus of a private pool and roof top terrace. Location is excellent as restaurant/bars/supermarket are all within walking distance and the beach, water park and zoo are a short taxi ride away. We love staying here :-)
Residential area but good base, car needed
Met by Maxine who was extremely helpful and welcoming.
The villa did have some issues - the barbecue had been left unclean and still had food in it from previous tenants and the sofas were very worn and in need of repair/replacement and the walls in the living area were peeling quite badly both of which meant I had the broom out regularly to sweep up.
The set up in the living/dining area and round the pool is more suited to 4 people rather than 6 and the additional loungers outside were not suitable for use, being broken or frayed.
Unfortunately we did have issues with the door lock and washing machine and during our stay which in all fairness were resolved within hours. We did find it a bit odd that there was a Wifi router but no wifi in the villa.
Good base for exploring. Quiet during our visit just before the school summer holidays (purely residential area). Would benefit from additional resources for guests such as a welcome pack, more maps of the local area and details attractions.
Car definitely needed.
Lovely child friendly, private villa
Just returned from 8 days at Peters lovely villa. Description is accurate and everything was as described being a really nice home from home. We were met by Maxine who made us very welcome and could not have been more helpful. The villa is perfect for children being totally private and self contained with lockable gates. Pool was fantastic - just what you need on a hot day and with the easy roman steps it was great for our little grand daughter.I had contact from Peter from the minute I booked - he provided all the information we needed including villa and beach directions and even buses to all the local areas. Excellent service from start to finish.
The Villa is on a nice complex which has many bars and supermarkets. The Patagonia Steakhouse is excellent. Local beaches were very good - particularly the ones at Guadamar which were a little more developed than the ones at La Marina.
Just got home from a week in Peters villa had a good time all went well from first contact with Peter till the day we left in a great area for shops and restaurants had a few coach trips to other parts of spain can't wait to go back next year thank you Peter
home from home
We have just returned from a lovely two weeks at Peter's villa, wish it was ours!
Everything went smoothly from paying the deposit to handing back the keys. It's a little bit worrying not going through a travel agent but the communication from Peter was reassuring.
The villa is in a quiet residential area, it has everything you need, (including a hairdryer) for a relaxing self catering holiday. The villa was perfectly clean and has been well maintained. Loads of british channels via satellite and a dvd player. The aircon was fine for us we kept the bedroom door open. I suspect in the height of summer it would be insufficient but it would be easy enough to rent a fan.The beautiful pool is cleaned regularly, the pool is very deep at one end, you'd need to keep a close eye on the kids.
There are bars and restaurants, with a variety of cuisines 10 mins walk, there is a largish supermarket here too. If you walk up the road another 5 mins there is another area with more bars and restaurants. If you are feeling lazy there are takeaway menus in the villa :-)
There is a Lidl and Iceland, which sells all the British favourites, a short drive away, you could probably walk but we didn't!
I have no hesitation in recommending this villa.
We stayed at Peter's villa in La Marina during the first week of August 2014. The meet and greet staff were wonderful, very helpful and knowledgeable. The villa itself had everything you could possibly need, was well furnished and in a great location. We were 5 - 10 minutes walk from the bars and restaurants, along with children's play parks, tennis courts and supermarkets.
The area is great, easily accessed from Alicante airport and perfect for family getaways. We will certainly be back!
