About Karen Keightley

I live in London with my 2 children.. I work full time in the catering industry. I spend most of my vacation in Spain. We have made many friends and have really fallen in love with the Country. I hope to retire to Spain when I reach retirement age. I love this part of Spain as we are in a very nice area of mixed cultures. We also love the shopping mall that is within walking distance. Great if you've had enough of the sun. My children are 21 and 24 they also love this part of Spain. It seems to suit all ages. We love the relaxed way of life. - I hope you will also enjoy our apartment as much as we do.

Year purchased: 2012

Karen Keightley purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Karen Keightley chose Urbanización Jardín del Mar

We do not take an upfront safety deposit from you. On arrival you pay damage of £100.00. Jenny who looks aftrer house cleaning and transfer will refund your £100.00 returnable deposit on the day of departure. I have never had to stop any deposit as this is just taken as a precaution. - I purchased this property as this is near enough to the town, 35 mins walk to beach, or 5 minute drive. The lakes are superb, Haberneras shopping centre within walking distance. We are within walking distance to some good restaurants, bars and a lovely green forest. Bus stop is 5 mins from apartment, bus takes you into Torrevieja, so no need for car. Although, we always have a car as I love to get about to all the different beaches and do lots of sight seeing.

We love the lakes in the area which are very beneficial to health. The all year climate is great. We often go in winter as very bright and warm in the day. Does get chilly st night. Apartment is warm with cosy fire for evenings in winter. Summertime time best part of our apartment in watching the sun go down from roof solarium.

What makes this apartment unique

Carreforre Supermarket and Habeneras Shopping centre walking distance, Bus route straight into town or beaches. The restaurants on the promenade in Torrevieja areas are fantastic. You can stick to the competitive Spanish restaurants and Tapas bars, or enjoy the more upmarket restaurants. Something for everyone in Torrevieja. Dinner on the promenade, watching the sea waves rolling in and out is the best. El Muelle restaurnt for this is great. You can take a taxi to the water park 6 euros, or walk 20 min walk. Great markets nearby. Salt Lakes also walking distance.

Swimming pool 50 metres from the apartment and the private rooftop is amazing. You don't have to go far to soak up the sun. We have everything around us if we want to go out. Also great for those that just like to live the outdoor life and relax in the sun by day, cook at home, eating on the terrace, then watching the sun go down. We have the Waterparks, Park of the Nations, plus La Zenia Boulevard shopping centre 15 minute drive. Lovely shops and restaurants. Biggest Primark in Europe.

2 stars feels generous

  • 2 of 5

The apartment is extremely cluttered - too much furniture and the draws and wardrobes are just full of 'stuff'. The photo online makes it look a lot better than reality. It felt grubby and the kitchen crockery/utensils were not all clean, half the lights don't work including the one outside the door which made coming home late a problem on the stairs, and the bathroom drains smelt really, really bad. Roof terrace could be really nice but again is run down and just feels very uncared for. There is a dog in the house opposite that barks a lot - worth talking to it and making friends otherwise it is a pain. Pool is nice but there are only a few sunbeds and most of these are not in a good state of repair. Not a good experience overall. It could be nice if someone really spent some time sorting it out, giving it a really good sort our, declutter and clean and updating things. Otherwise I would not recommend to anyone.

We had a lovely 5 day stay a very neat apartment in a private gated area fabulous pool great to be able to get straight into water, and neighbors very friendly good to see all children enjoying themselves. Good 40 min walk to beach but we managed it every day even in heat, and taxi cheap back after lovely day on beach and huge choice of restaurants in centre (torreviejca). Very close to apartment wonderful Irish bar open all hours but no outside noise so friendly people really looked after us. The owner Karen delightful to deal with always available honest and kind. overall excellent stay totally suited our needs thank you so much Karen
