Detached Individual Villa, Private Pool/Gardens, Quiet Area, UK TV, Wi Fi

Overview

Property

Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Villa in Calpe, Gran Sol, Costa Blanca North, Spain, Quiet Residential Area, Near Beaches And All Amenities, UK sat. TV, Wi Fi

Villa Catalina is a luxury modern detached individual villa on one level. Set in the quiet non-estate residential area of Gran Sol; it is now approached by a tarmacked road which replaced the old unmade track. Nice views of mountains, with a glimpse of the sea and Calpe Rock.

We have made our villa a real home from home and made sure that all the amenities you would expect are there. It has a large light and airy lounge/diner with a ceiling fan, a fully fitted modern American kitchen, which is well equipped. There are three bedrooms, (one double bed with full en-suite and four single beds) all with ceiling fans, large fitted wardrobe spaces, mosquito blinds and security blinds, bedside tables, and/or chest of drawers; one double (full en-suite) and two with twin beds, plus a family shower room.

There is a Blu-ray DVD player, with some discs, CDs, board, playing cards and other games, numerous books and children's beach and pool toys, plus a sun umbrella.

UVPC double glazed throughout, with patio doors.

A sunny south facing veranda benefits from all-day sunshine with 6 quality sunbeds and a large covered terrace with table and chairs. The private gated gardens have been beautifully planted and are regularly maintained.

For those looking to cool down there is a private weekly (twice weekly in summer) maintained kidney-shaped pool, with an outside shower. There is a further terrace with a stone BBQ and table set. There are under water floodlights in the pool and several outside lights and spot lights.

We are sorry but we do not accept any animals on any part of the villa premises.

We also do not accept single sex occupancy by adults and groups and mixed groups under the age of 30, as this is a family home, unless agreed beforehand.

The villa is only let for a maximum of 6 persons plus up to two babies in cots

This is a non-smoking villa and no smoking is allowed inside the villa. There are ashtrays for smoking outside.

If a tenant breaks any of the above conditions they will lose their security deposit.

We would love to welcome you to our beautiful holiday home in Calpe. Villa Catalina is definitely the place for you, any children and the elderly!

About the Owner

We have lived in the same house for over 39 years in a village in Bedfordshire, where we brought up our 3 daughters.

I was a Probate and Trust Manager, also advising on Tax with a large firm of solicitors in Hertfordshire. I then set up an investment department managing £32 million, (having been authorised by the Law Society and the Financial Services Authority) within the firm of solicitors, advising clients where to invest their money, before the department was sold to an asset manager for whom I subsequently worked. I became a Member of the Securities Institute. I am now a self-employed Tax Consultant working from home.

I enjoy playing whist, gardening, watching football and travelling.

We had a lovely time staying at the villa just to mention about the pool it was perfect for my self and my husband, but I would be aware of young children as the bottom step into the pool is very high and quite a drop. It was lovely and clean on arrival, we didn't have a mid week clean and had to leave our dirty bedding and towels outside to be collected where the "cleaner" then left our clean bedding ect, unfortunately for us it was a windy day so our clean sheets and pillow slips where blown on to the ground.

Considering all that was mentioned above it's a very good Base to go into benidorm and site seeing and a lovely place just to chill and relax had a great holiday

Owner's Response: We always warn our guests that the pool is deep and to keep an eye on children at all times when in the pool area. We have never offered a mid-week clean but we could arrange this for an additional fee, if required. We had always thought that the dirty and clean linen was left in the hallway but in view of these comments we have now arranged for all future linen changes to be picked up from a box in the garage. We have apologised to this guest for any inconvenience but this is the first instance, that we were aware of, of the linen being blown away in over 10 years of letting. The reason why the linen was left on the doorstep was, because without permission the cleaners never enter the villa when the villa is let. Despite the guest’s comments we were pleased to note that she enjoyed her stay at our villa but we are disappointed at being only awarded 3 stars which does not reflect the quality of the villa, or previous guests’ experiences.

perfect property

  • 5 of 5

description of the villa is accurate. I liked the fact that the pool was well maintained and cleaned twice a week. The owner is quick to get back to you regarding the property' very friendly maid who came and did the midweek changeover of sheets ect.I would defiantly recommend this property to friends and relatives.Lots of good resturants to pick from' but keep away from the chinese close to the beach. Mad waitress running about all the time.

Location

From the Owner

I own jointly with my wife, Kay, (who is retired) Villa Catalina which we bought new in 2003 and furnished it ourselves. We usually visit once in the spring, again in June (with our grandchildren) and finally in October/November to coincide with Calpe’s Moors & Christians Festival (a spectacular display of floats, marching bands & soldiers/ladies in beautiful authentic costumes) for a total of 7 or 8 weeks. We originally had a small holiday townhouse on the Costa Brava which we sold, as we wanted to move further south so as to extend the spring & autumn holidays. The Northern Costa Blanca is not too dissimilar, in places, to the Costa Brava with its rocky coves, mountains and cliffs. Also, there are many flights to Alicante from Luton, our nearest airport.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Alicante at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Aleman Bar at 0.25 Miles Nearest Golf : Moraira at 5 Miles Nearest Train : Calpe at 3.5 Miles Nearest Motorway : A-7 at 10 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Gran Sol Hotel at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Levante, Calpe at 1.25 Miles Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches (both Blue Flag) to Villa Catalina are about 5 minutes drive into Calpe with its fishing port, fish restaurants, marina and long promenades. There are long white sandy beaches with lots of restaurants, bars and children's play areas. Here you can find the famous spectacular Calpe Rock rising 332m high which dramatically divides the two beaches. The salt lake on the edge of Calpe is home to flamingos and numerous other aquatic birds.

Travel:

A car is advisable and we can direct you to an excellent hire company who, we have found, are the cheapest. Alicante is the nearest airport and is less than an hour’s drive away; although there are also flights to Valencia which is about 30 min. more. There is a coach direct from Alicante airport or a coach from Alicante airport to Alicante City and a train or coach from here to Calpe.

Distances:

Villa Catalina is only 15-20 mins drive from the popular coastal resort of Moraira and only a further 10 mins drive to the beautiful Jalon Valley, with its terraced citrus and almond groves and wonderful scenery, Oliva, Denia & Javea. Benidorm is 40 mins drive away offering more attractions such as discos, nightclubs, shows, bars, Aqualanda Water Park, Mundomar (a marine and exotic animal park) and the theme park of ‘Terra Mitica’. There are also a zoo, caves and a safari park nearby.

Further Details:

The local shops, supermarkets, main restaurants and beaches (Blue Flag and sandy) are all about 5 minutes drive from Villa Catalina and the main town of Calpe is only a few minutes more. However, there are several restaurants and bars within walking distance of the villa.

The Costa Blanca offers virtually year-round sunshine making it one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe. The Northern Costa Blanca remains one of the most scenic areas of Spain, where unspoilt fishing villages and historic towns lie between miles of beautiful rock coves and white sandy beaches, most of which have received the prestigious European “Blue Flag” award for safety and cleanliness.

In this region as you drive around the winding roads there is spectacular mountain scenery and many charming traditional towns and villages, such as Benissa, Gata and the magnificent fortress town of Guadalest built on a precipice.

There are also many other activities such as safari parks, zoo, kiddies fair, tennis, golf, go-kart racing, climbing, walking, various water sports/parks, sailing, swimming, diving, boat hire, cycling, ice skating, caves, horse riding and trips nearby (Benidorm) for you to enjoy.

The local green countryside is dotted with beautiful individual white-washed villas. Shady pine woods, citrus groves and vine terracing make a pretty and relaxing setting for those of you wanting to unwind on a peaceful holiday away from the package tour crowds. This is a fantastic area with no shortage of things to do, or places to visit and catering for all your tastes.

Villa Catalina is ideal for families looking for a relaxing self-catering holiday away from the crowded coastal resorts.

Caring families will appreciate the villa and its environment. We are confident that this is the perfect place & you will thoroughly enjoy your holiday in this beautiful villa.

Facilities

From the Owner

Most guests comment that the kidney-shaped pool, which is south facing and the gardens are the best features. However, the peace and tranquillity is something to be treasured when relaxing on the patio around the pool soaking up the sun with a cold drink and a good book. Another feature is that the villa is fully equipped for more than 6 persons, in that there are ample cutlery, crockery, dishes and glasses, together with a full range of facilities to cater for any cooking required. There are several bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk. The villa is only 5 mins. from the nearest sandy Blue Flag beaches, supermarkets and restaurants and only a little further to the main centre of Calpe. Benidorm with its water and theme parks and night life is only about 35 mins drive away.
