About the Owner

We live in Guernsey, Channel Islands and have a grown-up family. 9 years ago we bought our villa in Spain, then we bought the apartment 8 years ago.

The hot weather is what attracted us to Spain and we have had many years of happy family holidays and now enjoy semi-retirement spending longer periods in the sun.

The relaxed way of life and wonderful, reasonable meals together with the beautiful beaches and the bustle of the open air markets are our particular favourites.

We hope you too will enjoy your time in Spain, in particular in our villa and apartment, and return many many times.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have many repeat bookings. Several of our lovely clients book a year in advance to avoid disappointment. If we are fully booked our key holder looks after and rents other apartments on the complex as well as several nearby, so we may still be able to help you.

Lovely apartment

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely apartment and its in an excellent location for beaches, bars and golf course. The apartment is lovely and clean and a good size if you have a family of 4. My only criticism is the complex is a little noisy and it wasn't very busy when I stayed. Also not sure what its like in the summer but there was no sun on the balcony in October so that was a little disappointing.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are pleased you found apartment clean. Sadly, the month you were in, there were some particularly unreasonably behaved tenants in some of the apartments. This has been brought up at a recent AGM and owners have been asked to make guests aware of the community rules. Sadly, other people's behaviour is out of our control. As is the weather. Obviously sun on the balcony will vary from high summer to autumn, but we work on the basis that when it is really hot, the balcony is a shady haven. Thank you for respecting the apartment and leaving it in a clean state. Not all do.

Lovely Apartment in a Lovely Complex!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for 4 weeks as part of a big group recently and were delighted with the apartment. Centrally located and so well equipped with every convenience possible. UK channels on T.V. , great free WIFI also. Sunloungers, parasol, beach mats etc all provided and of course my beloved shopping trolley!! A lifesaver for all those heavy water trips to Lidl!!

The complex is lovely and secure with two pools surrounded by lovely gardens are well maintained with lifeguard on duty during the season. So comfortable we rarely went to the beach!! The local beaches are within walking distance.

The area has everything you need within walking distance - Huge Lidl, Euromarket, Carrefour, and Supercor all within 5 min walk. Lots of restaurants within the nearby Commercial Centre - although the centre itself appears rundown in places it has some amazing quality restaurants. Our favourites included: Papaya Tree, Uvarara, Leonardos and for amazing value meal deals Maritaos - lovely Asian food at amazing prices and one of the few places that could deal with a large group. Most restaurants needed booking ahead at this time of year.

For shopping there is not much around the immediate area but head down to La Zenia Boulevard (20 min walk) for some serious retail therapy. Bring a swimsuit and towel for the kids for fun in the water fountains to cool them off!!

We found we probably should have hired a car for some part of our 4 weeks as getting out a bit further afield was difficult and taxis were very busy this time of year and hard to pin down. But you have everything you need here within walking for a shorter holiday!

Thank you Yvonne and Terry and of course Helen and Chris (on site). All in all a great time and would definatley return to El Rincon!!

Great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. We arrived very late on our first night and were met by Chris who let us into the property and explained all that we needed to know for our stay. There was a starter pack waiting for us which we were very grateful for. The apartment was very clean and equipped with everything we would need for our 2week stay. The complex was a few minutes walk away from several shops, bars and restaurants which is great for anyone without a car. We did hire a car and used the apartment as a base for exploring the area......and a perfect base it was. The owners made us feel like friends from our first contact and the whole experience of booking felt personal and pleasant. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your excellent review. We try our best and keep adding things which we feel will make our guests comfortable. As clients, you were very easy to deal with and this makes our job easier. You also left it in clean and tidy condition which is not always the case. Kind regards Yvonne and Terry

Fantastic "Home from Home" Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a second visit to this lovely apartment and this time we stayed for twelve nights. Return visit aside you instantly feel at home as soon as you get there. The complex is gated so feels safe and secure and the grounds, lift and pool areas are kept very well maintained.

The apartment itself is extremely clean, very spacious (with 2 bathrooms - especially handy if was a family or 2 couples) and well equipped and the new beds are extremely luxurious. A welcome pack of essential groceries sets you up well and is a god-send when arriving on a late evening flight like we did. Nearby is a large supermarket within walking distance if you'd self-cater and eat in. We had breakfasts and also a few evening candlelit dinners on the spacious balcony... when we didn't walk to the local restaurants/bars. A particular favourite was Rocky's where the good was very good value. We didn't hire a car but most places, including shops, beaches and a lovely market on Saturday mornings were all easy to get to on foot. Buses took you to nearby Torrevieja etc. and in the apartment is a comprehensive folder of leaflets suggesting eating places, attractions and activities.

All in all a really relaxing base for a lovely holiday... we'll definitely be back! :)
