About the property

Villa in Alicante, Costa Blanca North, Spain - 5 Mins Drive To Shops/Bars/Restaurants/beach, 20 Mins From Airport, Alicante Port, Torrevejca,

The villa is in a private estate called La Escuera in La Marina, all the villa's in this estate are big and have to have a minimum of 1000 sqm plot. I am renting my 4 bedroom, 2 Bathroom guest accommodation, which I only use for around 3 weeks a year, so you will have the villa to yourself. Due to the size of the villa, it has a large area for sunbathing, swimming, relaxing. The whole area is surrounded with walls, so it is very secure and private, although you are very close to everything. There are two large parasols and a gazebo. The lounge/dining/kitchen and also the main bedroom have coin operated air-con units, there are also ceiling fans in the lounge and the main and second bedroom. The villa has everything you need. You walk out your front door and the pool is right in front of you. It is all on 1 level there is lots of garden furniture and 8 sunbeds. This is the perfect place for an early evening barbecue. Or venture out to the town for a lovely meal. There is a 3G Router in the villa. you can purchase a pay as you go data sim card from a shop in the village and put it into the router for WIFI access while your on holiday.

There is a private english lady taxis service that has an 8 seater contact 0034678229157 lynnehillgreen@gmail.com or kay who is my cleaner that lives opposite 0034667811549 kayepattison@hotmail.com who i find better to contact on whats app, she charges 25 euros from the airport in her car. She is really helpful.

About Derrick Fiddes

I run a large restaurant in St Albans Hertfordshire and my partner and i use my villa around 5 weeks a year.

I do not have children.

I have owned it for about 5 years and bought it as a new build. I have decided to rent out to holiday makers my 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest accommodation.

I have never rented it before but i have let friends use it.

I would like to try and cover my bills as currently i send around £5000 per year for bills and maintenance.

I am sad to leave the villa as it is gorgeous.

I bought the villa because it was close to the airport and the beach. Its about 15 or 20 mins on the beach road N332 from Alicante. Very easy to find and a very central location.

Derrick Fiddes purchased this villa in 2006

Why Derrick Fiddes chose Elche Area

I bought this property in 2008 newly built.

I looked at property in Cyprus and Turkey but decided on Alicante because it is 2 hours flight time from the U.K, It is close to the airport and easy to get too, Close to the beach, in a private area that has no building work in an established area, Close to the Alicante to Torreveja, 5 mins drive from La Marina town with many shops, restaurants and supermarkets 10 mins drive to the old town of La Marina.

It is a large property with a large plot so there is plenty of room to relax and have fun.

It is peaceful the only thing you can ever hear is the local cock waking up in the morning.

It is a very romantic getaway

What makes this villa unique

Most properties in the area have small land and often a shared pool.

Because of the size of the villa it has a large paved area next to the pool and on the other side of the villa there is 3 trees to give shade where you park your car.

All the money that is taken in rent is invested in the villa, after the bills are paid of course.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gorgeous villa in a perfect location i will be going back. My children would not leave the pool.

Alex Carvalho

Great value for money. Loads of nice restaurants very close by.

Although i love the beach i did not want to leave the villa. Pleased i hired a car though it was so much easier with shopping and sightseeing.

Paul Tacon 14/09/11

A perfect place to unwind peaceful and the pool area was so big just the place to have a BBQ. i will be going again.

Clean and tidy villa

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

Very nice clean and tidy villa. No benchmark as 1st time been in a villa! Would have used pool more than once if had been heated. Shower cubicle leaked so only used once. Lucky we had another bathroom with overhead shower. Blind in double bedroom didn't work so felt exposed at night with street light shining in all night. No aircon unit in second double room. No lid on bin on kitchen. Could have done with fly screen on front door Definitely need a car.

Owner's Response: I am glad my villa was clean and tidy. unfortunately i do not know of any villa with a heated out door pool, it is usually used to have a swim and cool you down. Thank you for letting me know about the shower cubical, i was not aware of it leaking, it is only 6 months old, you should of messaged me and i would have called the installers to come around and fix it. It clearly says on the website that there is air con in the lounge and the main bedroom, the second bedroom has a ceiling fan above the bed, and all the bedrooms have fans. The town is 10/15 mins walk, i prefer a car but lots of guests prefer to walk. I always try and make sure everything is perfect at the villa it would have been nice if you just text me or told my housekeeper we would have corrected the issues.

  • 3 of 5

The villa overall was a nice size.plenty of room to accommodate.The only gripe I had was the cleanliness of the villa.It could have been cleaner,it was not really up to our standards.villas we have stayed in before have been spot on but this one lacked care and attention,this is the only thing that let it down.

Owner's Response: I was extremely disappointed to read that you were not impressed with the cleanliness of the villa and feel more heartened having just spoken to you on the phone to find out more about your specific concerns. I understand you saw finger prints on some kitchen cupboards and that the utility room freezer had mould in it and smelt. After our holiday-makers vacate, the cleaners come in within a period of two hours to check that everything is in good order and then clean from top to bottom most thoroughly. Our experience has shown over the years that no one uses the freezer in the utility room which is why it has recently been closed up ready to be disposed of. This is the reason it was switched off. However, I have since decided it may be advantageous to re-instate this freezer as we do have some people who wish to rent for a few weeks in which case a larger freezer would be advantageous. Therefore, please rest assured, the freezer will be either replaced or thoroughly cleaned and sterilised. We take pride in the fact that we present our holiday villa in the best possible condition and its cleanliness is of the upmost importance to us which is why we instruct our cleaners on a regular basis as to any areas that need particular attention. May I refer you to a personal letter that I received from Mrs. Mawer from Hertfordshire who stayed at the villa a short time before you did: On arrival we were delighted by the clean smell of the place! All rooms were immaculate! The kitchen was pristine, all cupboards were clean and fresh, all the cutlery and crockery were gleaming, the washing machine looked new, the bathroom and shower room were also sparkling and clean. All bedrooms were clean and dust free, including under all the beds. I suffer with a dust allergy so always check to see if there is any offending dust which I may need to remove with a damp cloth. This was most certainly not the case in this villa. I would not hesitate to recommend staying in this beautiful place. It has everything anyone could possibly need and is of the highest standard. The air conditioning system was a wonderful bonus too as it was incredibly hot for the entire two weeks we stayed there. I can’t wait to go back again next year!! I do hope you will be happy to come again. We continuously strive to please anyone who comes to stay and seriously value their comments, opinions and any ideas they may have to make their stay enjoyable.

Lovely villa and amazing pool!

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed here as a family of four, 2 adults and 6 and 4 year old boys. So we had a lot of room to ourselves. We pretty much lived in the pool. There is only one point of entry onto the terrace through the front door which makes it good from a safety/pool supervision point of view with young children.

Shallow end is about 1m, deep end is about 1m 80.

There are lots of inflatables in the wardrobe in the master bedroom left by previous occupants. We added one to collection too.

The villa was really clean.

Satellite TV with English channels was good for coaxing the children in from the hottest part of the day.

Great black out shutters.

The only thing which would make the villa 100% perfect is a dishwasher!

The area is unbelievably peaceful and quiet. The only thing that disturbed me was a rooster nearby that crowed at dawn. I'm a light sleeper though, the rest of the family slept through.

There are 2 air con units which take 1 and 2 euro coins. Make sure you have some on you when you arrive to get them started up.

We hired a car. Couldn't have been easier driving from airport to villa and I don't drive abroad very often.

Escuera Town was 5 minutes away and would definitely recommend Consum supermarket and lots of restaurants to choose from. Patagonia Steakhouse was seriously good if you're a meat lover.

We went to Alicante itself early evening which has a great atmosphere.

We also took the boys to Aquapark Rojales which was well pitched for their ages. About 20 mins away.

The last day in order to kill time before our afternoon flight we went to Hillside Aquapark round the corner from the villa. Fun play area pool for the children. Large grown up pool in another section.

We would have wanted to explore more nearby towns in the evenings, but the children were so exhausted from swimming and sun we couldn't keep them awake! Still that meant lots of lovely peaceful adult time in the evening on the beautiful poolside terrace. Can't ask for more than that!

Great villa,with pool and lots of space

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

First impressions,wow what a lot of outside space! Pool very inviting and really warm, with the sun on it all day. Villa clean, only two bedrooms have ceiling fans, of which one also has a coin operated air con unit, a godsend as very hot, air con also in lounge. We moved our daughters bed into the lounge,so she could stay cool under the fan, which she loved, she also had the tv to watch, which had English channels, again great. WIFI not great inside, but good outside. Kitchen had lots of utensils, crockery, no tray to cook a pizza on though, kids always want pizza. It was also nice to see previous guests had left unused groceries, which we also done. Villa had books,games,films, very well equipped. The pool was used so much and very much appreciated to keep cool. Had a hire car, which is needed to get to shops and beach, we found Consum to be a good shop.

Very relaxing,enjoyable holiday and would not hesitate in returning again ........Adios amigos

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. I will defiantly get a pizza try for the oven. There should be table top fans in the other 2 twin rooms, but i will consider getting dealing fans as well. I hope you come again.

Great Villa near Alicante with big pool

  • 5 of 5

The villa was easy to find on a private estate called La Escuera which comprised of all the larger villas in La Marina. It had loads of space, a big swimming pool with a large sun bathing area around it.

It was only 5/10 mins drive to the beach, really easy to get too, which had a restaurant and beach bar on it.

The town is a 5 minute drive, with lots of restaurants and bars.

We went to Alicante port which had great bars and restaurants, it got very lively when we were leaving about 12pm. We walking in a couple of streets to the town and there was beautiful squares with fountains, the perfect place to have a coffee or a beer. We could see the castle up on the hill, which would be a challenge to go to one day.

On a different night we went to Torrevejca which is the opposite way from the villa, about the same distance, this had a night street market and a nice promenade to walk along.

Lots of bars and restaurants in the area, places to go Benidorm, Guadamar, Elche, Alicante, Torrevejca, La Zenia. Beautiful beaches and what a villa!

We will be going again.
