About the property

Villa in Villamartin, Costa Blanca South, Spain - Quiet Location Within Easy Reach Of Beaches, Bars And Restaurants

The apartment is comfortably furnished and well equipped with everything you might need for a relaxing holiday. The balcony overlooks a peaceful park area so you can sit or eat outside without being overlooked. And for serious sunbathing there is a solarium up top. The pool here is truly one of the best in the area, with ample gardens to sit around without tripping over other people. If you want somewhere comfortable and not too expensive, where the weather is good and there is lots to do, as the base for a great holiday, then this is the place for you.

About Derek Hancock

We are a retired couple living in Surrey. We have had the property for several years and use the apartment as our holiday home. We try to provide everything that you might need for a holiday, and ask people to treat it with respect.

Derek Hancock purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Derek Hancock chose Orihuela Area

Great area for a holiday. Lots of bars and restaurants. Plenty for the children to do. Good beaches.

What makes this apartment unique

Also good for a bit of peace and quiet. There's plenty of room around the pool, even in summer, to just laze and read a book.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All these reviews were left on Trip Advisor, on our previous website....

March 19 2014. "This apartment is great, all you need to start a great holiday, and have to say very clean. Having the garage was great as we rented a car for two weeks and I am sure in the season parking might be an issue. Having said that, the apartment is set in a very quiet street overlooking a park" 401sunshine

November 24 2013 "An excellent light and airy apartment, well equipped and comfortably furnished, well worth a visit. Good location, we are thinking of returning with friends as great for golf and plenty of good bars and restaurants to choose from and all nearby." Julie Cuff

August 31 2013 "Loved this apartment! Beautiful location, very comfortable and immaculately clean. Garage was a bonus as car not sat baking in the sun so it was cool to get into. Lovely well maintained pool and gardens." Claire M

April 10 2013 "Exactly as described on the website....but better! Steph

January 4 2012 "Fantastic apartment it has everything you could want and then more. Very clean and spacious, love the balcony from the lounge and the bedroom, best apartment we have stayed in by far. The garage is a real bonus too." Lyndy B

October 31 2011 "Very comfortable and spacious apartment with excellent fully equipped kitchen with all those little extras most holiday apts don't have, like water waiting your arrival. Nice secure cool garage parking with electric doors. Very comfortable lounge with lovely balcony and quiet views. DVD pplayer with DVDs and books were a nice thought. The pool was constantly checked hygeine wise." redpolly

June 2010 "This has to be the best rental property I have stayed in in Spain. The owners keep it in immaculate condition and have thought of everything you could possibly need for a stay in their property. I would recommend this property to absolutely everyone." David H

February 2011 "We had a wonderful relaxed stay in Los Dolses. Very comfortable and clearly a much loved family-owned apartment. Everything worked very well and many little touched contributed to our comfortable stay. A variety of groceries in the cupboard helped ensure that we were not caught out when needing something we had not already bought." RichMaddy

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(8 traveller reviews)


10 out of 10

  • 5 of 5

This property ticks every box :

Great Location, Great Facilities, Spotlessly clean, Comfortable, Spacious.

If your looking for a great base to enjoy this part of the Costa Blanca you cant do much better than this place, the apartment was extremely well presented and went above and beyond the description provided, every possible home comfort is there for you.

The pool has recently been up-graded and is quiet, safe and spotless.

You are 10 minutes walk from some great bars and restaurants and 5-10 minute drive from the beach.

Derek offers great support also.

My only regret.......I didn't leave a nice message in the visitors book which I fully intended to do but simply packed so much into my 2 weeks I clean forgot, however this book is packed with great reviews from very happy visitors.

Thanks Derek.

Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely apartment! When we opened the door the apartment smelt clean and fresh. It was really well looked after and all the furnishings were like new. The pool was nearby and had recently been refurbished. It was a good size and the surroundings were good too. We had a great holiday. Would definitely go again!

Excellent apartment and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was light and airy, with modern styling and good quality furnishings. The crockery, cutlery and kitchen utensils were to a very good standard (although not very much used by ourselves!).

The apartment layout lent itself to an open comfortable feel and certainly generous in size for 2 people in our case, or a small family.

The gardens and pool are conveniently located and are to an excellent standard and well maintained.

The local Supermarket, a 10 minute comfortable walk away, provided an excellent selection of food and wines.

The local plazas look a little tired although still providing a few fine restaurants, in particular the Italian venue and Rollo's for an excellent English breakfast. However, the Fuente Plaza which is a little further way is a modern centre with a fine choice of restaurants, bars and shops. The beaches are a short taxi or car journey away and we would especially suggest the Nautilus Restaurant which is located by the sea. This provides an excellent choice of Spanish cuisine and good service.

The holiday provided us, as a couple, with a superb base location in which we met family and friends.

Access to both Alicante and Murcia airports is very good.

We would recommend this apartment to our family and friends.

The listing description is accurate and the Owners provided a very good folder with all relevant information included.

We both had a superb holiday and are looking forward to returning.
