About Roger Osborne

Roger and Barbara Osborne live in the Northeast of England. We have owned an apartment in the Javea area for many years and purchased El Pinito in November 2013. It is our home away from home and we are hoping to spend a considerable time here when I retire.

Roger Osborne purchased this villa in 2013

Why Roger Osborne chose Jávea

We have owned an apartment nearby for many years. We love the rugged coastline and dramatic landscape inland. There are great restaurants and bars in both Javea and Denia and we love the unspoilt nature of the area.

What makes this villa unique

We like the fact that we can walk through back roads to Javea in 25 minutes and wander the narrow streets and stop at many atmospheric cafes and bars for a coffee or glass of Rioja.

Stunning and Tranquil, perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at El Pinito for 2 weeks and had the most relaxing time. The villa is spacious and well equipped and was very clean and the views from around the garden were beautiful. We spent most of our time outside either in or around the pool and the large outside dining table was perfect for eating al fresco. The pool was easily visible from the terrace area or the bar area which meant the kids could be in the pool even if we weren't. The owner was very helpful throughout the booking process and while we were at the villa and I would definitley recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: Thanks Tom for your kind words. However, I get the impression that you pressed the send button before you had finished, as it ended in mid sentence. Kind regards Roger & Barbara Osborne

Lovely property set in a wonderful garden setting. Excellent facilities and flexible living space.

  • 5 of 5

We had a week in this lovely villa at the end of July. The house is set well away from the main road and is not overlooked by any of the neighboring properties. The house was clean and well appointed with everything one might need during a stay. Fresh bread and refrigerated items had been left for us on arrival including a nice cold beer and a bottle of wine; nice touch. We had great weather and spent most of our time outside where there are lots of places to sit in the sun or shade. There's a good quality gas BBQ which makes eating outdoors easy and a great pleasure. The outside bar area fridge came in handy for quenching a thirst and is a great spot for watching the sunset. Javea old town is beautiful and just a few minutes drive away with the harbor and beach not much further. There are loads of restaurants to choose from and some excellent ones very near by. I highly recommend this villa and will definitely return in the future - a precious find.

One observation for families with younger children; the master bedroom is separated from the other bedrooms. If you have children that call out or wake in the night, this layout might not work for you.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words Jonathan. We thought that the outside bar area would be a hit when we planned it earlier in the year. You are absolutely correct about the distance between the master bedroom and the other two v.v hearing small children crying etc. As a result of your comment, we plan to take out a baby monitor when we go out next month to leave for guests who have small children. Kind Regards, Roger and Barbara Osborne

Amazing villa in a spectacular setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a totally relaxing holiday in this well equipped and positioned villa. The setting is fabulous and it was a delight to eat breakfast in the outside kitchen area with views across the mountains.

The villa has everything you could need to make your stay enjoyable and the air conditioned bedrooms were the perfect antidote to the daytime temperatures. The kitchen and bathrooms were to a high standard and the extensive welcome pack an unexpected addition on our arrival. We have been using Owners Direct villas for a number of years and it was certainly the most generous we have ever received.

The outside pool area and the pool itself are so nicely done with the provision of two big parasols and the greenery bringing some protection from the sun. We used the gas barbecue on one occasion and found supermarkets/restaurants within easy reach (albeit a car is necessary to reach Javea - but we expected that and it wasn't a problem at all for us.)

We are grateful to the owners for allowing us the use of their beautiful villa and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. We would definitely hope to return. Thank you!

Great villa with excellent views of Montgo

  • 4 of 5

We had an excellent holiday. We have been coming to Javea for over 20 years and last stayed in El Pinito more than 10 years ago. We found the improvements to the original nayas to be great. The villa was very comfortable and the complimentary welcome pack was much appreciated.

The gardens and the pool area are lovely and we especially enjoyed the views of Montgo. I think the summer kitchen will be a great addition when completed.

We were very impressed with the amount of information provided and the Wifi connection was very good.

The only problem we had was that we found it very difficult to manoevre the chairs around the outside table and also the cushions were very thin. We ended up using the plastic chairs from around the pool.

Nevertheless we were very impressed with the villa and will hopefully return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and constructive criticism. We are aware that the chairs are heavy which does have the advantage of keeping them well anchored should we get a strong wind. I agree that they are difficult to manoeuvre, but we find them comfortable once in position. We will look in to the cushions, although there have been no other complaints regarding these. The summer kitchen is now complete and the fridge will be installed next week. Kind regards, Roger and Barbara Osborne

Beautiful villa, secluded and very well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay in this immaculate and extremely well equipped villa, set back from the road, so very peaceful. Didn't get much chance to utilise the garden and pool (given 60 mph winds and gales) but could see that this would be stunning when warm and sunny. The master bedroom is a haven to couples with kids which allows privacy away from the hubbub of the house. Log fire a lovely touch. Roger and Barbara were very helpful when we had a few hiccups and couldn't have done more to help. There was only one thing I would change.... the pillows are extremely hard, but seriously if that was all I had to complain about it shows you how impressed we were with the villa and all the support structure around it. Would definitely recommend. Gill MacAulay

Owner's Response: Thanks Gill for your glowing report. It is a great shame that we couldn't have arranged for better weather for you! It was unfortunate that you couldn't have seen it in the sunshine. We have noted your comments on the pillows and will take some softer ones out when we travel by car in June. Hope you can visit again in better weather. Kind regards, Roger and Barbara
