About Michael

Originally from New Zealand my wife and I now live in Yorkshire with our 3 children. We both work but spend most of our holidays in Spain which we love!

Michael purchased this villa in 2014

Why Michael chose Baix Vinalopo

We love Carabassi beach and being able to visit Elx, Alicante or Santa Pola when we want. Gran Alacant is a wonderful place to relax and the weather is amazing!

What makes this villa unique

Casa de Kiwi is just 15 minutes walk from the fabulous Carabassi beach. We provide the beach umbrella so you can travel light and make the most of the great coastline. There is a great selection of Restaurants 5 minutes walk towards the beach, everything from Mexican, Spanish to English. If you want to stay in, Casa de Kiwi has all cooking amenities a fab communal pool and private solarium.

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!

sol y playa

  • 4 of 5

La estancia en Casa de Kiwi , ha sido muy confortable, y encantadora.. La persona que nos recibió Martin. muy simpático y amable. ..fuimos 2 parejas y un bebé de 11 meses. ella lo disfrutó muchísimo, jaja

En general hemos disfrutado de una estancia de 4 noches muy placenteras , relajadas y en familia. que realmente era lo que deseábamos...la playa muy cerquita,, se podía ir a pie 800 m.. pero el calor era tan intenso fue mejor utilizar el coche..

La localización del chalet no fue exactamente la que figura, ya que tiene dos tipos de identificación.. una por Avenida de Polonia Nº 6 y otra por Casa Kiwi- Avenida de Polonia Nº.630. es lo que nos lio un poco....ya que fuimos directamente a la primera dirección...pero vino Martin y nos condujo al sitio...(eso por no haber llamado a Mark como nos sugirió.. y nos fuimos por nuestra cuenta directamente)

la propiedad estaba limpia. pero faltaban bombillas en las escaleras,,,, Teníamos accesorios de limpieza, en la casa .. muy de agradecer. la verdad ,, en los aseos jabón de mano y papel higienice., para la llegada

el sistema de agua caliente es por butano y caldera.. perfecto funcionó...

si que se echó de menos un microondas

la atención del propietario fue buena

Aunque sugiero que durante esos meses de tanta atención a los turistas, deberían tener mas personal auxiliar...el argumento que no dábamos a basto o estamos a tope por parte del propietario ,demuestra falta de organización y atención dando una fea imagen . Recuerdo que le notificamos de ciertas alteraciones dentro del chalet, (llamo mi esposo a Mark) dejo de funcionar el mando a distancia del aire acondicionado del salón, el llenado de una botella donde va el agua del mismo se llenaba con mucha frecuencia, las bombillas, etc.. recibieron el mensaje pero no vinieron a corroborarlo o llamarnos para decirnos algo (entiendo estaban saturado de trabajo) !!! .. cierto es que tan solo eran 4 días..

recomendaría. esta propiedad teniendo en cuenta estos puntos. que desde luego son solucionables. y no alteran en absoluto el buen relax

no hemos salido de la propiedad a conocer lugares cercanos.. porque realmente por tan poco tiempo de estancia , como dije anteriormente disfrutamos del sitio, de su piscina hermosa, caminatas dentro de la urbanización.. y PLAYA que es muy limpia, amplia y hermosa...

en general, un buen lugar para recargar las energías y pasarlo en familia.. lo recomiendo

fin bostad, ren, städad och man känner sig hemma.

  • 3 of 5

det var bra, fin bostad, men vi saknade bra sängar. sängarna var olämpliga, hårda och inte sköna att ligga i utom en. inte en liter vatten i kylskåpet fram tills man kan handla nästa dag.
