Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Alfredo,

Our recent holiday in Gran Alacant was very enjoyable. The house is very clean and has all the qualities for an enjoyable holiday, especially sitting on the patio enjoying a cool drink after a long day.

The beautiful beaches are nearby as are the local amenities such as super markets. Local bars and restaurants are all within walking distance which was good for us and offer a good choice of food.

I would recommend your holiday home to friends.

Kind regards

Roy



Dear Alfredo

Thank you so much for our stay in your lovely house. It is so clean and well maintained, and you made it clear that you will do everything you can to make your guest’s stay comfortable and enjoyable. The views from the sun terrace are fantastic and, although close to the airport, we didn’t hear any aircraft sound. We would certainly recommend the house to others, great value for money.

Everything you need for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Alfredo's house is a lovely property with a fantastic roof terrace in a very quiet area. Was spotless on arrival. It has everything you need for a self catering holiday. The airport pick up & drop off is a massive bonus & Ian's tour of Gran Alacant was very helpful. Close to a great supermarket, restaurants, bus/little train stops. Loved the resident Gecko's in the porch! The only slight negative was the living room suite was quite uncomfortable to sit on & relax of an evening. If you are out every night this wouldn't be an issue but for us who spend evenings at home it was. However this did not detract from the property at all & we would return. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. Sally & Hugo

We couldn’t ask for more!

  • 5 of 5

Well, what can we say. Both the house & location were perfect. The house was very clean & included everything we needed to make us feel at home. The communal swimming pool was nearby, as were a variety of bars, restaurants & shops. Wonderful views from the roof terrace. Plenty of interesting places to walk to & if you didn’t feel energetic, there were a number of bus services. Alfredo & Ian couldn’t have been more helpful, including lifts from & to the airport. Very much looking forward to staying there again.

We dare not tell you how good this accommodation is....

  • 5 of 5

....as we'll be looking to stay here again next year - and we don't want it to be booked-up!

This is s delightful town house, quietly situated opposite a ravine on an excellent quality development, only 20 minutes from the airport but a million miles away. It's well equipped and comfortably furnished. There's good a/c in the bedrooms and living room and it's a bonus having two bathrooms. There's easy access to shops and just a 5 minutes drive from a long and sandy beach. Alfredo and Ian are lovely hosts and super helpful. We had a lovely, relaxing family holiday. Many thanks - and thank you for buying a new BBQ for us to cook on! Hope to see you again next year :-)

Everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay at Alfredo's house, the house was very well equipped with everything we could have wanted. It was clean and tidy and was great to be met by Ian who gave us a tour of the area.

Good supermarket is 5 minute stroll away and the pool is literally just around the corner, the pool has a lifeguard on duty and sunloungers to hire each day for just 1,50euro, although Alfredo has chairs that can be used around the pool too!

Air con in bedrooms and lounge was great but fans were also fab if you aren't a lover of air con!

We were a party of 5 and one of us slept on the sofa bed which was fine for our needs, we worried that the house wouldn't be big enough for us but it was perfect!

Alfredo and Ian very kindly have us a lift back to the airport on our return (taxi was a bit of a pain when we arrived as they struggled to find the house but we got there in the end!)

Lots of places to eat within walking distance, and had lots of lovely meals..... can recommend the Banoffee Cake at Hemingways!

All in all, great value ... couldn't ask for more for your money 💰?!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location with a supermarket, bars, restaurants and bus stop all within 5 minutes walk. The home itself was spotless and had everything you needed. The roof terrace had wonderful views. The communal pool immaculate. Alfredo was an excellent host. Thank you so much for our lifts to and from the airport. Definitely recommend.
