A brilliant villa!

  • 5 of 5

What an enjoyable holiday! There were 6 of us in our party. We arrived on the 25th July '16 earlier than planned. We rang Mark/Martin to see if it was possible to get into the villa before the 2pm. They said that would be fine and within 10 minutes Martin arrived. We were shown around by Martin who was very helpful. We were very pleased with the villa. We stayed for 14 days. The position of the villa is easily accessible to Gran Alicant, Santa Pola and Alicante by the local bus at a nominal price. There were supermarkets locally too which was handy. The communal pool is straight out of the villa. My youngest son absolutely loved going swimming and we used it every day. The beach is about 20 minutes walk. What a lovely beach! There was a bar on the beach too which was handy selling drinks and food. Would I go back to the villa again ,my answer would be a definite Yes!

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in Feb 2016 as a winter break. Weather good - warm & sunny 50%, other days windy/cloudy but not cold - we wore shorts most days. Just one day of rain.

Villa immaculate, clean & modern. Sitting/dining room overlooks communal garden. Good size bedrooms, comfy double bed. Useful safe in wardrobe. Well-fitted bath & shower rooms. Compact kitchen had all necessary items (a microwave would be a nice addition). To have UK TV & Wifi was a blessing in the cooler evenings. We enjoyed sunbathing on the roof terrace.

NB Good advice from UK permanent neighbours to turn heating off temporarily when cooking to avoid tripping fusebox, as they put it 'heat or eat'!

The villa is in a small development around a shared central garden & pool. Well maintained & attractive, pool clean & sparkling, though as unheated we didn't use it.

The Clot de Galvany nature reserve is very close, & we had pleasant walks there. Carabassi beach is a 15-20 minute walk, a beautiful long stretch of sand, reached by boardwalks over the dunes.

There is a small shop, plus bars & restaurants 10 minutes walk away. Here you can take the road train to the Commercial Centre, with larger shops & eateries. We used Lidl & also Mercadona - great for fruit & veg - & super cakes!

Not having hired a car, we took the bus from the main beach road for a day in Alicante. Cost just over €3 each for return journey (buy outward ticket on bus & return in Alicante bus station). We visited the magnificent hilltop castle (free entry, pay for lift up) and the Contemporary Art Centre (again free).

Our local contacts, Mark & Martin, were friendly & helpful - with indepth knowledge of the area.

All in all, a relaxing stay in a healthy environment, with comfortable accommodation.

Many thanks, Olwen & Ed

Comfort, Peace and Recreation

  • 4 of 5

We appreciated being slightly away from the crowds of Alacante but with a beautiful beach within walking distance. Very convenient and within walking distance to supermarket, market and restaurants. Public transport very good. The Villa was clean,conveniently laid out and had everything we required for a 10 day stay, including umbrellas etc for the beach. We appreciated the lawn and trees by the pool for a cool rest. We would certainly recommend this Villa and will be returning with friends for another stay.

A very relaxing place to stay with family

  • 5 of 5

Casa de kiwi is very cosy and we had a great time exploring the local attractions. The pool was very nice and the free Wifi helped us keep in contact with friends at home. The UK Sat TV was also handy when the sun was too hot!! We will be back!
