About Karen Grundeken

The property was purchased by us when newly built. The family has spent many happy holidays there. Now the children are adults and 'do their own thing' we have decided to let it out to other families for part of the year.

Karen Grundeken purchased this house in 2004

Why Karen Grundeken chose Baix Vinalopo

The townhouse is set in a quiet location near to the airport, approximately 10 minutes by car or taxi, and near to beaches, bars, banks and shops. The climate in this part of Alicante is known as a 'micro-climate' and is usually warm/hot and mostly sunny.

From Santa Pola and Alicante there is a boat service to the small island of Tabarca - an area of marine conservation and the fish can been see from the glass bottomed boats.

Santa Pola is the oldest fishing town on the Mediterranean and has a lovely old castle and many Roman remains. It is market day Saturdays and Mondays.

The old town of Elche is about 20 minutes by car.

What makes this house unique

There is a good bus service into Alicante and a train service from Alicante to Benidorm and beyond. Also there are several organised coach day trips from GA, including Wednesday and Friday trips to Benidorm and Theme Parks.

Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had lovely few days staying in this deceptively large, comfortable and extremely clean villa. The wifi is super fast and we found the beds to be very comfortable. Great location as only a short walk to bars and restaurants, easy access to the beach, nice local walks and good public transport links. Our security deposit was returned immediately after our holiday. Fully recommended and we will definitely be returning soon.

Fantastic holiday townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely townhouse for our holiday and was extremely pleased with the property. It was spotless clean and well maintained, we made good use of the wifi and had lots of fun in the pool. The location of the property was superb for us with lots of choice of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. We had a ride on the local tourist train and found it very cheap and a useful way to get about. We caught the bus into Alicante which was great as we didn't hire a car for this holiday and found that it really wasn't necessary as the local transport was excellent for days out and all the amenities that we required were in easy walking distance. We had a fantastic family holiday and will be returning to this property again this year.
