Great Winter Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this lovely apartment for two weeks last January and like it so much we came back for six weeks this time! All the previous reviews express our thoughts exactly, so no need to repeat them.

We had a wonderful six weeks. To sit outside in the sunshine in tee shirts in December/January was a lovely feeling. Nearly all the restaurants are still open at the Plaza and Chemies is a great stop off on the way home. We went to a carol service there with mulled wine and mince pies. Christmas Day on La Zenia beach is not to be missed. Even the dogs have Santa outfits on! As everyone who has been to the apartment knows how fantastic the view is from the solarium. Watching the firework displays from there on New Year's eve was amazing.

The whole six weeks was an outdoor life and we came home with great memories. Would recommend to anyone to try it.

Thank you Peter and Lou for the experience. Another great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you both for your great review – we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay this winter – we always think that a holiday in the sunshine in the winter makes the weather seem more bearable when we go back in the UK and certainly the sunshine lifts the spirits! We are very lucky to have the solarium which gives privacy when sunbathing but also wonderful views during the day time and a spectacular viewpoint for fireworks in the evening. We look forward to welcoming you back to our apartment one day in the future.

Wonderful apartment,great holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment the agent,Steve, opened the door for us (very nice guy and helpful...pity he`s a United fan but ,look, nobody`s perfect) we knew we had chosen the perfect place to stay.

First impressions are always the best and we were so impressed.

What met us was a comfortable ,airy well lit apartment which overlooked a pristine swimming pool set in well manicured greenery. An absolute haven which during our stay was condusive to many hours of peaceful relaxation. The tranquility was almost tangible!

We found during our stay in Casa Lou that the apartment had everything we could have needed including good wi-fi and the most comfortable bed i have slept in for years!

The location was perfect for us, the supermarket and restaurant only a few minutes walk and 2 bars just 2 minutes walk away which we really appreciated on the night of our arrival!!

We visited La Zenia and the boulevard a couple of times which is only a short taxi journey (the Argentinian restaurant is not to be missed!) and the town of Torrevieja is definitely worth a visit.

All in all i would have no hesitation of recommending this lovely apartment or the area to anyone wishing to visit and all being well, with the good grace of the owners, we`ll be back for more of the same.

A perfect home from home.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have become regulars now to Villamartin and having visited numerous times since 2009 and we "discovered" this apartment last year. We have just returned following our second visit. The location is absolutely ideal being close to the heart of the urbaniseation and to the Plaza, yet blissfully quiet at all times of the day and night. and I don't believe it can be bettered. There are outstanding views from the lounge over the pool and far beyond towards the coast, and even more spectacular views from the huge and very private roof terrace. The apartment is extremely well equipped and very comfortable with everything required for a relaxing stay and excellently presented. Meet and greet with Steve ( and departure) has been first class, and he and Angela are on hand to assist efficiently and promptly with any issues which may occur. The sun is on the small front balcony for breakfast and mid morning coffee and on the roof terrace all day long where 4 loungers, a large dining table, parasol and chairs and a built in barbecue make time spent up there with a good book and a cold drink ( or snoozing quietly) an absolute joy.

A car is essential as the many beaches ( several blue flag) are a couple of miles away ( but very easily reached) and if it is not beach weather there are lots of interesting areas to visit well within an easy drive.

We like the apartment and the area so much we have already booked for next year !! Thoroughly recommended ( but not please when we want to stay there !!)

Lovely apartment with great outlook

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in this apartment twice over the past few months we are already looking forward to our return next year. Both Steve & Angela who look after the apartment always give us a warm welcome and are very helpful. It has everything that you need to make your stay comfortable - the area is so peaceful yet only a short stroll from the lovely restaurants at Villa Martin Plaza. The pool area is complimented with lovely gardens so it is bliss to sit in the balcony and watch the world go by. We didn't feel the need for a car - there is a supermarket nearby where you can get all your supplies - very popular for walking and cycling along the canal - all in all very enjoyable and totally relaxing. Thanks to Lou & Pete for ensuring all is in order.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very positive review - we try very hard to ensure that our guests enjoy their well-earned holiday in our apartment and go back refreshed ! We work very closely with our on-site agents, Angela and Steve who maintain our apartment to a very high standard, to ensure our guests are made welcome and they can provide a wealth of information on the local area. As you say, the location of the apartment ensures that, despite the restaurants of the Plaza being so close, the peaceful nature of the gardens and pool area are maintained. We look forward to welcoming you back next year.

A lovely stay during August

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice apartment in an excellent location, with balcony and solarium views of the pool. The pictures give an excellent view of the property, and there's plenty of space throughout. Pleasingly, the 2 bedrooms and the lounge are all separately served by a/c units so you can precool your bedroom before bedtime during the hottest days.

The pool is excellent, easy access (via car) to local supermarkets and the La Zenia shopping boulevard, the agents give a great service, so all in all - recommended.

Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Lou for the 9 nights we were there - our friends were getting married nearby so we thought we would make a holiday out of it. The apartment was clean and well laid out, with another space for 4 adults to live comfortably given that both are double rooms with there own bathroom and a spacious living area. Overlooking the pool the location was ideal in regards to relaxing and ease of popping back to the apartment for things throughout the day and it also had the added benefit of a sun terrace which was a fantastic place to relax.

The plaza, which is around a 5 minute walk away has everything you need for evenings, around 10 - 12 restaurants and several bars surround the square where live music plays each night, we had a great time every evening and always ended up at Chemies bar which is literally a 2 minute walk away from the apartments and was great for showing the football!

Lou couldn't have been more helpful in the organisation of our stay, from giving us all the info we required to arranging transfers from Alicante.

I can't recommend the area and apartment enough and will definitely be back one day.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review - we are so glad you had a good time. We spent a lot of time in selecting our apartment and a great deal of care in furnishing it and our aim has always be to exceed the expectations of our clients, not purely in the terms of the accommodation itself but also in the information and support services from both ourselves and our managing agents at Aset Spain, Steve and Angela. We would love to welcome you again to our apartment – be it for a summer or winter stay – don’t leave it too long ! :)
