About the property

Villa in Bonalba, Alicante, Costa Blanca North, Spain - On perimeter Of golf resort offering mountain views but within 12 minutes drive to local beaches

Our villa is commonly described as one of the best equipped properties available for rental on the Bonalba Golf resort. It is finished to an 'executive' level with internet/wi-fi, satellite tv and dvd/cd players with extensive dvd/cd collection, solar heated private pool, patio area offering outside dining and sun lounging areas and barbecue. The villa sleeps 8 and is located on the periphery of the resort, within its own gated sub-community called La Rosaleda, having uninterrupted views across to the Bonalba mountains. In addition the villa contains a full range of electrical (kitchen and other) equipment and extensive crockery/glassware for those wishing to entertain whilst on holiday either indoors or outdoors. We have deliberately equipped the villa in this way such that guests have access to the outside world via internet for work purposes or just keeping in touch, in addition to luxurious surroundings and facilities for a restful holiday by the pool or a family beach holiday just 10-15 minutes away by car. As such the villa is equipped for our own enjoyment on a 'home from home' basis and all facilities are made available to tenants in the hope that they are treated appropriately. For parties of more than 8 people we are aware of very nearby properties which are available for rental in addition to ours such that parties of up to 16 may be accommodated in two different (but adjacen) villas. Please enquire.


Bonalba has a 18 hole golf course and clubhouse, together with a large hotel with spa on site. The villa has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms providing sleeping for 8 in 1 king sized bed, 1 double bed and 4 single beds. One of the twin single bedrooms is located on the ground floor enabling easier access for disabled persons with one of the bathrooms also being on the ground floor and containing a shower, wc and handbasin within a sizeable 'wet room'. The other 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are upstairs with one of the bathrooms being en-suite to the master bedroom and containing bath, shower, bidet,wc and wash basin. The 3rd bathroom is a similar 'wet room' facility to the downstairs bathroom. Off the master bedroom there is a large balcony with views from the front of the villa over Bonalba. The layout of the development and space between the properties renders the balcony relatively private and not directly overlooked.

The property is maintained/managed by Steve and Lisa who also co-own/manage the 'English' shop on site. They live on Bonalba and are minutes away in an emergency. It is maintained to a very high standard with pool cleaning taking place on a weekly basis, gardening on a monthly basis and villa cleaning after every tenancy.

About Peter Jones

A UK Finance Professional who enjoys 'nice' things and has equipped the villa accordingly for regular visits with wife Sue.

We now live in Hythe, Hampshire on the edge of the New Forest having lived in Sutton Coldfield (north Birmingham) for most of our married life. I am Birmingham born and bred with my wife originally coming from Oxford.

Peter Jones purchased this villa in 2006

Why Peter Jones chose Mutxamel

If you are looking for a typical basically equipped holiday villa for the cheapest available price then, I regret, this is not the property for you. Our property is very well equipped and we believe very well located to benefit from easy access to some very beautiful Costa Blanca resorts. At the same time if you want to stay around your own private pool for the whole of the holiday whilst having close proximity to local beaches bars and restaurants, and you want to do this in stylish surroundings with 'home from home' comforts, this most definitely is a villa worth considering.

There are some reviews available on the website and these accurately reflect the feedback we get from each and every guest, there never being anything but minor criticisms caused by inevitable problems requiring attention from time to time. In every case these are dealt with promptly by our local managers Steve and Lisa who are always praised for their service and friendliness.

The prices quoted are, we believe, competitive given the quality of the accommodation and the facilities offered. We are however open to more favourable terms for longer lets. Please enquire.

What makes this villa unique

Prices are quoted in the relevant section of this website for normal holiday breaks. In addition the features of this villa enable extended 'home from home' breaks in comfort making it ideal for one or more retired or semi-retired couples having long breaks to escape the 'British weather' in comfortable 'home from home' accommodation with access to the outside world with wi-fi and satellite tv.

Discounts of between 30% and 40% off published rates are available on 1 month or longer bookings depending on availability and season.

Available from November 2015, please make enquiries direct to owner.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Has been described as one of (if not the) best equipped properties available for rental on Bonalba. The 'red' sofas are a local legend amongst its visitors over the years. The property is equipped as a home hence the 'Executive' label but provided for the rental of discerning and respectful tenants.

Good for a family relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Our first time hiring a Villa and we landed with a great one! Instructions were well done for collecting the keys etc and the house was well kitted out for us. As per previous reviews you must hire a car from airport to get about. There are lots of hills so not for the unfit! Would return again!

Loved everything about this villa. Great base for a fantastic holiday with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

After reading all the reviews, which were all praising villa, we were very very impressed. Four bedrooms, one en-suite and two other shower/wc. Spacious living/dining area and a great outside dining area too with a gas barbecue. Fully functional kitchen with washing machine, dish washer, oven/hob, microwave, toaster etc. Everything and more (Sky tv, PlayStation, DVDs, book, games.

The best though, was the lovely private pool and amazing views.

Easy key pick up and brilliant instructions from owner. The two managers of the villa (married couple) were very helpful and were there if you needed them.

We had no problems whilst there.

We would recommend you hire a car though to get around. We did. Alicante of an evening is an amazing place. There are other beaches nearby with great shops.

I so want to be there again as I didn't want to leave. Happy memories of a lovely well thought out villa.

We had a wonderful time in this villa this summer. The arrangements and information provided were excellent, as was the support we received on site from Lisa and Steve.

It was a real home from home with everything we needed for a great holiday. The villa was well appointed and spotlessly clean with all home comforts. I can thoroughly recommend this as a great family holiday

I agree that a car is essential but all amenities are easily reached within a few minutes drive. Lovely beaches within easy reach and very close to the airport which was a great asset. We loved the pool too and had some great days 'at home'

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic 2 week holiday at this villa.

You will not be disappointed if you book to stay here. Finished & equipped to a very high standard. 1 or 2 minor issues that were dealt with promptly by the people who look after the villa (Lisa + Steve). You will need a car. Supermarkets within a 10min drive. We all enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the villa to any potential customers.

Just returned from a fantastic family holiday at Peter and Sue's Villa. We had a great time. The villa was excellent and everything was provided for a fantastic stay. Lisa and Steve who look after the villa were so so helpful. Nothing was to much trouble for them. The mistake we made was not getting a car we just got transfers from airport. But after speaking to someone we then hired a car from eddies in El Campello. Then we used the trams to travel which was so easy to do from the centre of El Campello. The beaches down in El Campello were fantastic the kids had a great time. Peter and Sue I would like to thank you so much for making our Holiday a memorable one we will defiantly be back in the near future. Your instructions and communication was second to none. Great time had by both family's ranging from 2 to 55. So wish we were sitting on the balcony this morning but hey always next time. Defiantly recommend this Villa very very enjoyable.

Fantastic Holiday Villa

  • 4 of 5

Directions supplied by owner were easy to follow.

Very pleasantly surprised when arrived at Villa. A lovely self-contained detached property. Beautiful pool out the back with lovely sun-loungers to while away the afternoons in the sun.

All you need is supplied in the Villa - it even has SkyTV and WiFi internet. The Villa is cool and comfortable with lots of room. The Villa has obviously been well looked after, being very clean and tidy. It is located in a gated area within the Golf resort - ensuring peace and security.

The golf resort is very nice and obviously a great place to stay if you like Golf. There are some restaurants, bar and a shop only 10 minutes walk from the Villa. All have very friendly staff and we had a few great nights sampling the drink and food.

Only 15 minutes drive away is one of the nicest beaches I've been to (between El Campello and San Juan). We spent three glorious days there soaking up the sun before going back to the Villa to laze around the pool with a few refreshments.

Such a peaceful and relaxing holiday!

I will definitely recommend this Villa to my family and friends, and hope to go back again.

Bonalba is situated minutes from the major N332 road which runs north to south parallel to the coast making all Costa Blanca resorts easily reachable. In addition it is located at the junction of major Costa Blanca motorways A70 and AP70 (although shielded such that you rarely hear any noise), giving easy access by road to all major cities/attractions, These include Alicante (south) - 20-25 minutes, Torrevieja (south) -50 minutes, Cartagena (south) - 1hr 30 minutes, Benidorm (north) - 30 minutes, Valencia (north) 1 hr 30 minutes and further north Barcelona (3-4 hours). Trains to all major Spanish cities from Alicante and a local tram passes through El Campello on route from Alicante to Altea/Calpe (well recommended), a beautiful coastal route by car or train.

Further Details:

The Villa is located on the edge of a golf resort developed around 10 years ago, within one of is many gated sub-developments 'La Rosaleda'. There are properties either side but all are detached with generous plots and distances between. To the rear of the property is 'desert' land which ultimately will become a further 9 holes of the Bonalba existing 18 hole golf course. Beyond this 'desert' land are Mountains with Alicante and Muxtamel in the distance. This is not exclusively a holiday development, with many Spanish, Dutch, English and other owners of different nationalities living here all year around and a number of properties available for holiday rentals. The resort itself benefits from being developed by a large Spanish national builder which meant that it did not suffer like many other Spanish resorts from unfinished building in the financial crisis of 2008/9. The resort is maturing well with palm and olive tree lined streets maintained to a very high standard.

There are cafes/bars and small local shops (mostly Spanish but one English shop for those items you just can't live without) within walking distance on the Bonalba resort itself, together with the golf club and a premium hotel with the usual pool/spa/restaurant facilities . Beach resorts of El Campello and San Juan have vibrant promenade beach front activities with a proliferation of restaurants and bars frequented by locals and holidaymakers alike. Both have large sandy beaches and there is a marina at El Campello. A choice of supermarkets are available within 10 minutes drive together with a large range of shops and boutiques closer to and inside Alicante itself, which is a historic Spanish coastal city with many attractions (ancient and modern).
