About the Owner
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 Area
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.

Lovely relaxing stay. Really good sized, spotless apartment. Friendly, pleasant communal pool area. Thanks to Jeremy for his welcome and assistance on our arrival. Hope to stay here again in the future.
Villamartin Plaza is a comfortable stroll away and has a good selection of bars and restaurants, would particularly recommend the Iberian Lamb at Fairways, make sure you take a healthy appetite.
My husband and I stayed at the apartment with our 3 year old daughter. The apartment was brilliant. Everything was clean and very homely and well equipt.
The pool is brilliant. It was just a stones throw away and there was never more than a handful of people around the pool.
Villa Martin was really handy and has a great selection of restaurants. The supermarket also stocks everything you need.
Would definitely stay again!
Relaxing break, away from the hustle and bustle
Stayed here with husband and 14 yr old daughter in June 2016 and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing holiday. Apartment was spotless, really well maintained and superbly kitted out with everything you could need. The correspondence with the owner was always prompt and very helpful, from instructions of entry, places to eat and visit, to useful hints on traveling around the area. We didn't hire a car as we really just wanted a lie by the pool and read a book few days but if we go back and we would, I think we would hire a car and explore a bit more. We used a local taxi company and they were fab and not expensive. 60euros from Alicante airport. The local Villamartin plaza is jam packed with bars and restaurants with a small but ample supermarket too. Our only negative was it is very much an ex - pat area, we never found a Spanish restaurant but lots of other European type places and the obligatory Irish bar. Some people love that about the area and that's fine, just note you would need to go a little bit further afield to find tapas. The highlight was the really lovely pool and garden area. So relaxing and beautiful. Would definitely go back.
My wife and I had an absolute lovely break in a very well kept property, very clean and well kept,the best we have stayed in so far, excellent
Can't fault the apartment, clean and tidy. It was great to be on the ground floor and with just a few steps down to the pool it is ideal with children. It is very quiet and private around the pool, apparently even in August! The location is great as you can walk to the square with all the bars and restaurants. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Activity and Interests
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.
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.
