About Jacqs Elliott

I live in England with my husband and three children. My father-in-law bought the property a number of years ago when they moved back to England from Africa, so that they could still enjoy the better weather without having to board a 12 hour flight. In 2012, he decided that he would like to let the apartment as we couldn't spend enough time out there and it seemed appropriate that other people could enjoy it too.

Jacqs Elliott purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Jacqs Elliott chose Orihuela

It is ideally located for golf, beaches, restaurants and bars. It is only 20 minutes drive from Murcia airport and 40 from Alicante but it is far enough away from the busier town of Torrevieja for some peace and quiet but not too far should you wish to go clubbing or sample the nightlife there. It is also a great place for golf, with 3 courses within a short drive. There are also some great beaches within a short drive and many markets to browse locally.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment benefits from direct access onto the pool, something that I know many other similar blocks in the area do not provide. The pool and landscaped gardens are for resident's use only. They are well maintained and offer seclusion and safety for the children. Our children have had many happy summer holidays there with two of them learning to swim in the pool and us relaxing with a G 'n' T on the balcony with them safely tucked up in bed.

Villamartin apartment review

  • 5 of 5

John and I had a very nice holiday at your apartment,as you know we had my handbag stolen in the fist week ,and I was very upset,but Jeramy was very helpful and sorted out the key situation for us,the apartment was in a lovely position and had everything we needed,the pool was also lovely ,but the pool man was a bit concerned at times about it being a bit cloudy,this he said was people swimming with lotion on,it's impossible to stop this,but it didn't stop me swimming everyday so we had very nice holiday overall,look forward to receiving breakages deposit back from you,kind regards Phyllis and John hamill

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. It was such a shame that your bag was stolen but I'm glad that it didn't seem to stop you enjoying your stay. The pool issue is something that just happens sometimes. They thought they would have to close it on the Saturday that you left in order to give it a 'shock' treatment but in the end were able to rectify it without closing it. The key/damages deposit was returned via BACs on 7th so please do let me know if you still haven't received it. Best regards Jacqs

Superb location just steps from the pool.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and the apartment and pool area was everything Jacqs said it was. It was so convenient just to walk down the steps to sunbathe or take a dip. In fact it was so comfortable and pleasurable by the pool that we only went to the beach once. The apartment was lovely and clean with everything provided and has excellent security features including an alarm. We would recommend Jacqs apartment to anyone and we would not hesitate to visit again.

Nice quiet apartment

  • 5 of 5

Nice apartment in a quiet part of the Villa Martin urbanisation a 5 minute walk from the centre where there are number of nice bars and restaraunts. Only a 10 minute walk to the Villa Martin golf course and a short drive to La Zenia shopping centre and local beaches. The apartment benefits from a large pool and immaculately kept gardens, we went in June and it was very quiet. Nothing negative about our stay

This place has everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This place has everything in it you need for a family - good wifi included. We had a pool within 30 seconds walk, just down 1 small flight of stairs which is great when there are sunloungers [provided and excellent quality] to carry out. The apartment is the bottom one in the middle of the photo and perfectly situated for parking also. There is a plaza where there are many places to eat 10 mins walk away and a fab shopping centre literally 5 mins drive away which pleased our teenagers very much! We had a car and visited lots of places in the area -Cartagena, Alicante, Lo Pagan - wonderful little place and others. This is an easy to get to place with the airport not far and also easy to access. We really hope to be back here in the future.

Thanks so much for a lovely holiday.

Brilliant apartment. Perfect location . Very clean and spacious. Good value for money

  • 5 of 5

We've had an excellent short break for a 50th birthday celebration. Four of us stayed in the apartment and it worked really well for us as a base. Villa Martin was a nice stroll away. Definitely be booking in the future to visit our friends in Spain

Blue Flag beaches at La Zenia (5-10 minutes drive), Cabo Roig and Campoamour (20ish minutes drive)


Alicante - 40 minutes drive and Murcia - 20 minutes


The square in Villa Martin is approximately 10 minutes walk and has everything you need if you don’t want to venture further afield.

There is a large new Shopping centre at La Zenia. This provides an enormous supermarket and lots of well known high street shops like Primark, Claire’s Accessories and H&M. There is an entire floor of restaurants ranging from an ‘all you can eat’ pasta bar to a Wok bar where they cook everything in front of you! There is also a mini fun park for little people.

Further Details:

There are markets all over the area; three nearest are at Playa Flamenca on Saturday morning, San Pedro del Pinatar on Monday mornings, and at our local town San Miguel on Wednesday mornings. Two larger markets are held on Sunday mornings at Zoco on the San Miguel to Benijofar road, and Lemon Tree on the Los Montesinos to Guardamar, both about 20 minutes drive away.

There are two shopping malls of Habaneras and Dos Mares at San Pedro; both within 20 minutes drive. 20-30 minutes drive away are the beautiful beaches at Guardamar de Segura and Los Alcazares on the Mar Menor – long promenade, warm lagoon water, flamingoes, and typically Spanish.

The beautiful countryside can be explored on foot or by hiring bicycles locally. Villamartin Plaza has a shuttle bus service with regular departures along the coast, for example 5 minutes ride to La Zenia beach.

If you want a water park… there is one in Torrevieja and another in Murcia. Torrevieja is probably closer but Murcia is probably better. The park at Murcia also has a zoo. You can do both the zoo and the water park or just the water park.

Torrevieja is a busy bustling town and has too many entertainment possibilities to mention all of them.
