Apartment in Javea, Costa Blanca, Spain - Communal Pool, Opposite Beach, Easy Walk To Many Shops, Bars And Restaurants
Wonderful beachfront apartment with stunning, uninterrupted views over beautiful Javea Bay. Fabulous location with the beach just 25 metres away and an easy flat walk to a great choice of shops, bars and restaurants. The port area is just 10 minutes walk, the main beach area (Arenal) is 20/25 minutes flat walk in the opposite direction....or head up (hill) to Javea's historic old town (20/25 minutes walk). Alternatively, bike hire is readily available. There is a large communal pool, with the apartment's balcony looking over the pool to the sea beyond. The apartment faces East (morning sun and afternoon shade), ideal for breakfast whilst watching the sun rise...and sipping sundowners as the shadows start to lengthen and you are busy trying to decide which of the many restaurants you will be dining in that evening. For days out, Benidorm with its theme parks is 40km and Valencia with its City of Arts and Sciences is 1-1.5 hour's drive away.

About the Owner
Andy manages bookings on behalf of the owner (and mother-in-law), Eileen, who purchased the apartment in 1989 and retired there in 1993. At the time, Eileen lived in Saudi Arabia, where her husband Alan was an engineer. They then decided to look for a retreat in Spain. First, after weeks of looking, they found Javea (Xabia), a modest sized village under the gaze of Montgo mountain and fronted by a beautiful bay - and then they found the apartment. Perfectly located right on the beachfront, in a great complex which offered them everything they could want. So, for 25 years the apartment has served as home to Eileen and as holiday destination for family and friends. Now back in the UK, the apartment is available for others to enjoy as much as Eileen has.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the apartment & were really lucky that we could take full advantage of the excellent views as we were also blessed with excellent weather for the time of year.
4.4 based on 5 holidaymaker reviews
Loved our 15 days in the apartment, met by Mari as soon as we arrived & our whole experience was pleasurable. Ideally located, especially for people watching, less than 10 minutes walk to the Port, with it's abundance of restaurants literally meters from the sea. We were very lucky as there was a festival (Christian & Moors) which spread over a number of days which provided great entertainment. 20 minutes walk in the opposite direction is the Arenal Beach area which also has numerous restaurants, again great for people watching & lovely food. The apartment is very spacious & most of all....has fantastic views over the Med. There is a parking space which is great as the parking can be quite stressful. Will definitely come again. Andy makes the whole booking experience very easy. I'm missing it already!!!
We have just returned today after spending two weeks for Christmas and New Year in this apartment what a wonderful place this is. I will start with the location - brilliant, views - fantastic, and the apartment is well equipped with everything you need for a wonderful holiday including off road parking. There is no doubt we will be returning.
Lovely apartment, lovely view
We picked up a hire car at Alicante airport and were at our destination within the hour. The flat was lovely and comfortable with a nice welcome pack to greet us. We went straight out onto the balcony to enjoy the fabulous view of the beach and the sea. The flat is very nicely decorated and furnished with everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. It is right in the middle between the main beach and the port area where there are lots of great places to eat and drink. There are also lots of places in between if you don't fancy the short walk. There were plenty of nice places to visit around the area and this was very easy with a hire car.This is a lovely flat in a beautiful area with great views.We found the neighbors friendly and considerate. I will definitely recommend this apartment to my friends and family as we had such a lovely holiday. In fact my daughter has already been and stayed for a week. We will be back!!
What a lovely apartment!! When we arrived there was milk crisps and a bottle of red vino waiting for us, apartment was very clean and very spacious the views from the balcony were beautiful and we loved the swing on the balcony...when we could get the kids off!!
It's a great location with El Puerto only a 10 min walk and Arenal a 15 minute walk. Please try La Siesta and Montgo di Bongo restaurants which are both situated over the road, the paella in Montgo is one of the best we've had...ever (my cousin also agreed and she lives in Valencia so makes it frequently). Try this apartment you won't be disappointed.
Shame the pool area wasn't a bit bigger but having said that it was very quiet so you had the pool to yourself pretty much!!
A big thanks to Andy for all his help regarding our bkg AND Mari Carmen (caretaker)!! We will be back :))
This apartment is AMAZING!!!
This apartment is amazing!!!! nice, clean and the location is just ideal. Few minutes walk to the Port and Arenal Beach. The view is also fantastic!!! it has sea view, every morning we watched the sun rising, that was so lovely and we would sit outside at the balcony having breakfast and watch the sea and people walking by in the street going to the beach or the port. Bars and restaurants are just few minutes away. There's a nice restaurant just 5 minutes from the apartment in the same street which we went to at least 3 evenings in the week we were there. We're definitely going back again in May and each time we go to Javea this will be our place. Highly recommended.
