About the Owner

Hi, My name is Dave. I absolutely love Spain and have lived and worked in Cartagena a few years ago. I am a family man and believe the location of our Spanish home is good for families to relax and enjoy My Spanish is good, (though my grammar leaves a bit to be desired). I hope you enjoy Spain as much as I do, and enjoy staying in my property. I do use it myself, and my mum and children also go there when time and budget permits, so please look after it for us. x

A beautiful, bright house. Spotlessly clean and in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and bright and very well equipped. It had everything we needed. The pool is also lovely,as is the pool bar which serves snacks and dinners right up to 11.30pm

We visited a few places while we were there and would highly recommend Algar waterfalls where we were able to take a dip in the fresh (cold) water

The house has lots of options for TV so we were never stuck for a movie in the evenings.

There were 4 of us so we had plenty room and plenty of towels etc

Would definitely recommend this lovely house.

wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned home from a wonderful stay at this property! It's beautiful and well kept as are the grounds. It's well located, took us around a 40 minute drive from Alicante airport and a 10 minute drive into the centre of Torrevieja. The communal pool is wonderful and they had just finished fitting new play equipment too, it's all gated and secure which is great peace of mind with the little ones! Joint to the pool is the bar, it's reasonably priced and had Kareoke etc for night entertainment however I didn't rate the food. We had the most wonderful time and when we needed to contact David he was helpful and quick to respond! There is also an English couple on site who couldn't have been more helpful for recommendations etc. I am hoping to return next year!

A great property in a beautiful urbanisation. Centrally located with easy access to buses, restaurants and torrevieja. Lago jardin is just perfect and Dave's house is clean and welcoming anyone staying here would have a perfect holiday.

Excellent property - wonderful service

  • 5 of 5

Really happy stay for all of us. 4 people stayed in total and we had plenty of room to enjoy. Picking the key up was easy to do - Dave and Rob were really friendly and helpful. The property was near to many areas: we went as far as Benidorm (Mundomar well worth a visit); Murcia and Torrevieja obviously. We look forward to visiting again. As an indication of how good the stay was I often judge when there is a problem. Had a minor issue with our toilet and it was resolved painlessly and helpfully within 24 hours - very impressive.

From the Owner

The property is set in very well maintained gardens offering a peaceful break. Even the running water in the fountains helps you relax. We are only a stones throw from the large communal pool and bar area making it ideal for families. While I like to practice my Spanish (and I do think everyone should try) there are a lot of English speaking around, even in the bars. There is also a supermarket and complex a few minutes walk. Whilst we enjoy the peace, it is only a short (and cheap) bus ride (or short drive) from the bustling centre of Torrevieja where you can enjoy the many bars or market stalls along the seafront, or the busy nightlife.... Its a fantastic place!!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Alicante at 65 Kilometres Nearest Beach : at 3 Kilometres Car: not necessary


A short bus ride, or 10 mins in the car will take you to Torrevieja seafront. There are many lovely sandy beaches along the Costa Blanca. All the main beaches are blue flag to meet EU standards and you will find pedalos, jet skis and all the usual water sports. Many have beach bars or cafes and sun loungers for hire. Because of the very hot climate in this area, you will see people swimming and sunbathing during the winter months.


Alicante, or Murcia airport are less than 30 mins away. Private Taxi can be arranged from either airport at a cost of €35 each way.


There are many restaurants and bars in the local area. A short walk away, approx 10 mins, is a complex with local shops, bars and restaurants, and a mini-market. There is a very good Chinese, fish and chip shop, steak house and family run brasserie. Another complex is a further 5 min walk away.

A well stocked supermarket can be reached within 5 minutes walk for all your needs.

Further Details:

Cleaning 60€ to be paid in cash in arrival.

Meet and greet with key 15€ or free if you prefer to collect keys from Torrevieja

Taxi fare 45€ each way from either Alicante or Murcia airport, where taxi service is required, there will be no charge for the meet and greet with the key.

Whether you just want to laze in the sun and relax or explore the local area, this is the ideal base. Locally are 2 water parks, nature reserve, museums, safari park, boat trips and funfair on the seafront. Further afield you can get to Murcia, Cartegena and Elche, some lovely historical towns.
