House in Cabo Roig, Costa Blanca South, Spain - Peaceful Location, 8 Minutes Walk To The Beach & Restaurants a 2 Min Walk
Our house sits within a private gated community which provides a peaceful ambience even though you are just one street from the Cabo Roig strip. The property is light & airy with a very open feel. You walk straight into the large living room /dining room on the ground floor. This contains a very large daybed sofa & dining room table & chairs, a large TV, satellite & WiFi.
We have a galley kitchen here which is well equipped with oven, hob & toaster etc. Also a super size fridge which will stock a families' supply of food & drink if you intend to be dining in more regularly. Also on the ground floor is a shower room & W.C.
The first floor houses 2 bedrooms, one double & one twin which is the larger of the two. We feel the house is suitable for 6 though it would be possible to add 1 more small bed to this room if required. There is a main bathroom on this floor with both bath & shower.
Moving up to the 2nd floor is the master bedroom. Again with a very light and airy feel, this room benefits from glass blocks along the top of the inside wall. These let those beautiful rays of sunshine wake you up naturally for the sunny day ahead.
Leading from the main bedroom is another bathroom, with shower & W.C. Also here is your utility area housing a washing machine, very handy for a family on holiday & also for those who are looking to travel light with Ryan Air!
Next we head out to our favourite part of the house, the roof terrace. Up a small set of stairs takes you to your own little haven, where you can see the sea. This area if fully equipped with rattan furniture. A small sofa, 2 single chairs & 2 loungers. This is perfect if you are having a lazy day & want to stretch out with your book & a vino or if you'd like drinks & dinner up there in the cool breeze. We have a sneaky little wine cooler in the utility area so no need to even go back down to the fridge for your drinks!
If you intend on hiring a car, Calle del Mar has plenty of road side parking so your car will be safe & close by for your excursions. We do have a small shared pool for those that wish to use it too. This is shared with our block & the neighbouring apartments.
Next 'vamos a la playa!' the amazing blue flag beaches that are situated either side of us are stunning & just a leisurely stroll away along the coastal paths, the beautiful sea views are fantastic.
The walks are along the coastal path so we try to walk where possible, obviously depending on the time of day & time of year, as it gets very very hot in high season. If you do need cooling down, then these beaches do have the best chiringuitos on them from April till late October. The simple food is fantastic, a few tapas, pizza or burgers are on offer, as well as amazingly priced drinks. A glass of wine is around 2.5 euros or a bottle is 10 euros, so much cheaper than at home! If you prefer to take a picnic to the beach, we have a freezer bag, plastic plates & cups so this is also a great option.
If you decide to take the car, just a few minutes drive takes you to Cabo Roig Beach. This is perfectly sheltered & a real hot spot for you sun lovers, even in Dec & Jan you can be lucky enough to have a few days in the swimwear & catch the rays. Further on is Cala Capitan & then la Zenia, all of which you can park the car at.
There are many golf courses within driving distance of our house so for those of you that fancy a round or two you are in the perfect place. We intend to have a couple of sets of clubs at the house for this Summer so check when you book if these are already available. This is great as means that you don't have to cart your own clubs out & pay the carriage which can be expensive.
For the girls, there is la Zenia Boulevard which is shopping heaven on your doorstep which is just 5 mins drive or a bus ride away. This houses the best of Spanish boutiques as well as Zara, H&M, Primark, Bershka & many more. So I guarantee the girls will be able to occupy themselves if they don't fancy the golf while the guys have a round. A shop & back to the roof terrace for a vino!
Restaurants & small bars, there are plenty to choose from within a minutes walk. If you like Spanish food there are many, in fact one "la Sal" is literally across the road. For those that like to mix it up you have everything that you could wish for. Thai, Chinese, many Italian restaurants as well as Indians. All of these are very reasonably priced, many with special set menus if you so wish. A set meal for 2 at the Chinese with starters, main, dessert & a bottle of vino is around 25 euros!

About the Owner
About Karen Jennings
We both have a love of the sun & all things Spanish so decided to become owners abroad so that we could enjoy our time just a little bit more as the Spanish do so well. We spent many holidays travelling along the coast down from Murcia to find an area that offered us everything that we wanted for a relaxing holiday break from everyday life. Cabo Roig is where now feels like home. We are both still working hard so letting our lovely holiday home through the main part of the Summer makes sense, so that we can enjoy it through the rest of the year, especially when things cool down in the U.K. We have furnished it to a good standard and hope that the people that let our home enjoy it as much as we do. Treating it with the care & respect like they would do, as if it were their very own.
Why Karen Jennings chose Orihuela Area
We love the fact that you fly to San Javier Airport which is just 15mins car journey to our house. If you fly to Alicante that's still very close at a 45 min drive.
We live in a micro climate on this coast , which gives us over 320 days of sunshine every year, with average temperatures of 18 degrees.
This coast has a very relaxed, casually dressed & friendly vibe which definitely reflect the mañana feel, much more than areas like the Costa del sol.
As well as the Spanish, there are many Scandinavians, Germans & other Europeans who either live or have holiday homes in this area, so a fantastic mix of nationalities.
The beaches are within mins drive or a 15 min walk, which ever takes your fancy. If it's the latter, the coastal path walk is a stunning way to start the day.
What makes this house unique
Close by are some fantastic restaurants, Spanish, Italian, Thai, Chinese & Indian. We can recommend loads to you, all reasonably priced & just a stones throw from your door.
Thursday sees a market in the street parallel to us which is great for fruit & veg, cooked chicken, bread, in fact anything that you may need & at great prices.
There are many large supermarkets, al Campo, Consume, Lidl, all within driving distance and Consume you can walk to, just up the road.
Prices are great, it's not unusual to get a great bottle of wine for 2 euros in the supermarket!
Our roof terrace is a great feature that definitely makes our house stand out. It's a great area for socialising or simply to take some time out while the others head off out to play. Which ever it is, we think you will e

The villa was absolutely as described. Literally 2 minutes from everything. We normally go on holiday as a couple on our own but this year were with friends as we wanted to show them an area we love. We had lots of contact with Karen from long before our trip. She even allowed us to provisionally book the dates long before my holidays at work were approved. Fiona was lovely, she helped us with transfers and showed us round the house fully describing how everything worked. We were also able to contact her at any time during our stay if any problems. Didn't need to get in touch with her but she was very nice and approachable and I wouldn't worry about phoning if I had a query. The house was spotlessly clean. The electric meter isn't a problem, after the first couple of days we forgot it was there. We were out all day and we sat on the patio in the evenings when we came back. We must have walked for miles showing our friends all the areas round about. Our favourite restaurants this time were Asia Chic, The New Delhi and the Orange Tree. We ate out every night and enjoyed every meal. I would recommend the house to family and friends. The layout is perfect with bathrooms on each floor we were able to have floor each so still had our own space. Thanks again Karen for all your help and also Fi who manages the property for you.

Could be better
We had a great holiday in Cabo Roig and were relatively happy with the house and its facilities, however there were a few areas that need improvement and addressing.
Air conditioning- this is on a meter and not as described in the description. We were told that the 20 euros should cover our stay, which it didn't and we had to put more money in the meter for AC.
TV - didn't work and continuously cut out and froze- we reported this and waited for the TV guy to deal with this but he never turned up.
Fridge - sign on fridge saying no ice!
Kitchen - Description says fully equipped? No Microwave or Dishwasher.
Cockroaches seen on a couple of occasions.
Neighbours- there is a lovely Irish lady living next door who is being antagonised by tenants next door to her into the early hours of the morning to the point where they were urinating against her wall. Didn't feel safe.
Service- I emailed the owner to say that we had our car broken into and I replaced the ice bag that was stolen. I didn't receive a thank you but a short note to say that this kind of thing doesn't usually happen here. Well it did and there was no thanks or respect for me replacing their items.
Good location. Clean house but lacking in certain areas, especially customer service.
The house was spotless and every thing you could need and more. The owners had thought of the little extras that make this a very special place. Plenty of restaurants all in walking distant and lovely walk to the beach. This was a lovely location. The added bonus to this property was the master bedroom and ensuite shower room and the fantastic sun terrace. The owners were extremely helpful and made the whole booking experience simple.
Great well equipped house in fantastic location.
Impressive,very comfortable town house in great location. Bars and restaurants 2 to 5 mins walk but the house itself was in a quiet location. Beautiful coastal walks 2 mins away and beach with bar and restaurant 10 to 15 mins walk. House is very comfortable and has good quality furniture and beds. Lovely outdoor eating area and roof terrace with sea views. Karen was very helpful in answering enquiries and Fiona, who met us at the house, went out of her way to ensure we had a hassle free holiday.
This was our 2nd stay in less than 9 months & once again the house didn't disappoint. As comfortable as last time with the added benefit of the new wet room in the top bedroom. The house keeper Fi was friendly & available should you need any help during your stay. Ideal location & perfect for families & groups of friends. Highly recommended.

Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
We are in the perfect location for course to course golf, you could play a different one every day of the week if you so wish!
Less than 10 min walk takes you to Cabo Roig Beach. Another 20 mins takes you on to cala Capitan a deep cove, again well sheltered. The sand is groomed every day, you can see why these are blue flag beaches. A further 10 minute stroll takes you to la Zenia, the largest & equally lovely beach. The walk is a joy as it's nearly all a sea view the whole way. Camopamor is 15 mins right from us, a large more open beach which is fun & lively in high season, also there are a few small beaches en route.
Nearest airport is Murcia which is just 15 minutes drive away or Alicante which is 45 minutes drive. Car hire is not essential but it is for a more enjoyable & varied holiday. In the past we have used Firefly or Centauro which can be booked online, they are both good. If you don't fancy getting a car, we can arrange airport pick up for you, no problem at all.
If you are looking to come and relax, lap up the sun, eat great food inexpensively then you can certainly do this without a car. Taxis & buses are handy for the odd trip out.
Torrevieja is just 11km away, Santiago de la Ribera, one of favourite places (AMAZING spanish fish restaurant on the beach)is 22km away.
The area that we are situated in is very laid back & understated. It is somewhere that you can truly visit & totally chill out. There are smarter restaurants but we'd say that many are more on the relaxed side of life as are the bars in Cabo Roig & the surrounding areas. Though there are a few liver ones on the strip. If you are looking to play a few rounds of great golf or to spend long days on the beach & eat great food & drink fantastic wine, at a very good price then this is definitely for you.
