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.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We are just home from a nice relaxing week at Alfredo’s house. This is our third visit and we can’t praise it enough. We like to go for long walks and plenty refreshment stops. I agree the resort is hilly but we go down the quicker steeper hills then take our time walking up the long one from the commercial centre. With it being cooler in the evenings we were out all day and headed back to the house when it got dark. Nice and warm with the heaters on, same television programmes as at home and really strong WiFi. Our favourite restaurants this time we’re Alexandria’s, Los Lunares and the Indian restaurant at the commercial centre. Alfredo is really easy to deal with and picked us up and took us back to the airport. Forgot to say thank you Alfredo for leaving us milk and bread etc. That was really helpful as the supermarkets were closed when we arrived on Sunday. There is good local bus service to get about the town and also regular buses to Alicante and Santa Pola.

Very clean well maintained property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Alfredo has provided everything needed for a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The house is very clean and in a great location. The views from the roof terrace are beautiful. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance . We did not hire a car as the buses were great to get to Alicante or Santa Pola for day trips. Alfredo arranged for Ian to collect us from the airport and drop us off again. This was very much appreciated as this is our first visit to this area and he was kind enough to show us around Gran alicant on the way to the property. I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends and family and look forward to a return visit in the future.

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.
