Great position but a bit shabby in places.

  • 4 of 5

Communication with Marta and her friends was brilliant and they couldn’t have been more helpful. The apartment looks O.K. at first but it needs a bit of an upgrade. Lots of small details such as the roller blind is badly fitted and needs replacing, the entrance hall light doesn’t work at ground floor level and we had to use a torch, the shower caddy is just dangling from a rail etc.

Having said all that, we enjoyed our stay there and it wasn’t expensive.

great location- a minutes walk from everything

  • 4 of 5

great location and fantastic city- the apartment is very central- bedding etc. clean and a spacious apartment for a city centre- the apartment is a little tired in places but is priced as such- communication with Marta was excellent and we were met by a friend Alex at 11.30 pm- easy to find the apartment and your way around- the front of the apartment does look straight on to a large office block occupied day and evening so best to be aware of this if privacy is important to you- on the whole a decent apartment for the price- we found it to be quiet at night as no traffic except for some utility vehicles during the day- also a minute or two to reach the lovely beach and a great choice of restaurants and bars just around the corner

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were devastated that we had to miss a couple of days of the start of our trip, but Marta and David were very understanding and rearranged meeting up with us - which helped make up for the lost time. They were also generous about our leaving time, which gave us another afternoon to laze on the beach and get a fabulous long lunch, coffee and amazing artisan ice cream before catching the bus to the airport. The apartment was calm and peaceful, but just a short walk away from the beach, the Esplanana, great places to eat and drink and tram and bus stops to explore the coast. Great if you want to pack in as much as possible on your stay and love ambling along the lovely streets in the old town.

Alicante Old Town apartment

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is well maintained and is in the perfect location for exploring Alicante and near to the beach and restaurants. The main market is only a 5 minute walk away and the quality and selection of the fresh produce is amazing.

Unfortunately there was no ceiling fans as advertised but the floor fans were adequate. Also there's confusion regarding the 'loft' area. It was more like a large alcove.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to explore Alicante. As I said earlier, the location is perfect but we went in July and even the locals said it was almost too hot.

Owner's Response: Dear Martin! How are you? Thank you so much for the review. It was a pleasure to have you and yes you are right; it was too hot. Hope to see you son, anyway. By the way, I'd also like to tell you that we offer discounts for second visits! Hope to see you soon. A hug from sunny Alicante Marta and David

Fabulous city centre apartment

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect: right in the middle of the restaurants and bars, but in a quiet part of the city centre. 5 mins walk to the beach and Mercardo tram stop.

Apartment is extremely well equipped with everything you need for your stay (even beach parasol and bats/ball). We cooked several meals here with the beautiful, fresh produce from the market and felt right at home. David and Marta provided all the details we needed before our stay and David even waited to greet us after our flight was delayed: that’s service! Spain ‘suffered’ a heatwave during our stay, so air conditioning would have been nice, however the fans within the flat kept us cool and airy. There is a newish Carrefour supermarket on the Town Hall, so you never have to stray very far for supplies.

We had a great time and will definitely stay here again on our travels to Alicante.

Pleasant apartment in super location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is in a little side street off the square and does not overlook the plaza, however it is also very private. Inside it is airy and light and pleasantly decorated with a good kitchen and powerful shower in the bathroom.

A few very minor issues which Marta & David are looking at, but nothing that would stop us visiting or recommending it to friends.

The best feature is the location, you can literally walk everywhere in 10 minutes. loads of bars and restaurants from high end to tiny tapas bars, churches, museums etc. However when we were there the weather was superb, so we went to the beach every day, again 10 minutes stroll (so long as you don't stop for a drink)

Owner's Response: Dear Bryan, Its a pleasure to have guests like you who can appreciate the excellent value we offer in our properties, considering the apartments 50 yards away cost the double and they are not as well equipped. One question, which way did you try to go the beach, haha??? Postiguet beach, the city beach, is 3 only minutes walk, at the most!!!You must used the scenic route, I think! Hope to see you again soon. A hug, Marta
