About Joan Moorhouse

My husband and I purchased the Villa in 1989. Over the years we have added to the property, making it a joy to stay in. During the sunnier days (which are many) most of the time is spent outside and so the addition of our outside kitchen and dining area has been wonderful. Sometimes we go down onto the patio for breakfast and stay all day. We are retired now, so enjoy the quiet life that the villa brings, but if we want wonderful food and exciting company the Villamartin Plaza is around 20 minutes walk away.

Joan Moorhouse purchased this villa in 1980

Why Joan Moorhouse chose Orihuela

When we bought we didn't know the area, but we knew we wanted a property in a residential area, within 10 minutes drive of the beach. We also wanted to be able to walk to shops and restaurants and the villa is perfectly situated for all this. It enjoys the privacy of a detached property and the private pool and patio is a haven of tranquility. Within 20 minutes you can be in the countryside enjoying real Spain and the nearby town of Torrevieja is certainly worth a visit.

What makes this villa unique

Private Pool set in tranquil Patio Area with outdoor kitchen and shaded Gazebo.

Everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A real home from home. We loved the privacy of our own pool.

Amazing pool in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

On booking this holiday the pool was the selling point and it didn't disappoint absolutely fantastic

The outside area I think needs updating although functional so outdated the BBQ has had its day RIP BBQ the covered area worked well in the heat and breakfast on the new seating was a dream

The plants some are past their life and new plant would go so far in making the pool area the dream area it could be

Inside works well the kitchen area fantastic the dishwasher make like so easy

Next time half the cloths as the washing machine is great

Big question would I come back ?

A big YES and hope to book again soon. So quiet here and a place to recharge our battery's for life back in the UK .

Thanks to Angela and Steve for the meet and great all covered to make a brilliant stay

Mandy,Dorian,Robert and Sarah brilliant time

  • 5 of 5

Excellent time had by all, the outside space is where we spent all our time that and the pool is what made it for us,big enough for 4 adults to swim comfortably,it was very hot so the shaded area was a god send without it we couldn't have been outside all day,inside was nice could just do with a bit of declutter and aircon in the bedroom would have made sleeping a lot better,we will defenatly be booking again, thankyou Joan for sharing your home with us.

Lovely villa for a relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

This villa is great if you want a quiet holiday away from the hustle and bustle of tourist area. The pool and outside kitchen is the best feature, probably needs a bit of updating but it is a great place to spend time relaxing in the sun. The only downside is the lack of aircon in the bedrooms, the fans are quite noisy and not very effective in the Spanish heat.

The villa is located about 10/15 mins walk from Villamartin Plazza and La Fuente commercial centre where you will find bars and restaurants and shops. Beaches are a few kilometres away. Public transport isn't that good in the Villamartin area, taxis are the best bet and not expensive if you want to go further afield.

Overall I would highly recommend this villa for a quiet break, it is excellent value for money, we had a great time. Also, I would like to say the property manager Steve is really helpful, gave us lots of info about the area, a really nice guy.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at the Villa. We may look at adding air con in in the bedroom for 2018, but this would have to be reflected in the rental cost, which we try and keep competitive. There is a regular bus service which can be accessed at the end of the urbanisation. It travels to Campoamor beach one way and La Zenia on its return. We hope you enjoyed your stay enough to consider booking again. Regards Joan

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic villa, everything you need is there. The pool is a great size and plenty outdoor swimming material in the big boxes outside. There was only my husband and myself and was looking for a quiet holiday away from the hustle of daily life at home, we weren't disappointed and found the area quiet and friendly and not far from local amenities. 5 minutes from nearest bar wolfies who serves food which is lovely and morgans bar just a further 2 minutes. Nearest supermarket is only 20 minute walk, however book a taxi for coming back. The local taxi was also friendly. Will definitely be back!! Thank you joan.

A home from home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed many holidays in this area and this villa certainly ticks all the box's for a superb holiday. Inside,the villa is clean,tidy, with all you need for a home from home. Outside , the pool size is excellent with plenty of seats and sun loungers. Add the "outside living" feature and you do not really need to leave the villa at all ! The location is peaceful but within walking distance of some very good bars, Wolfies, Morgans, Secret Garden, an Asian restraunt well worth a visit and the commercial centre beyond the supermarket. With a car, visit San Miguel de Salinas for more authentic Spanish restraunts, and DO NOT miss the La Zenia Boulevard !! Great shops, tapas and bars to watch sport on a massive outdoor tv screen. If your a beach lover you will be spoilt for choice,, personal favourite El Capitan and Campomar by the beach restraunt. Enjoy ,,, as we will certainly be back in the future.
