EXCELLENT LOCATION FOR BEACH, POOL AND BARS, 10 MINUTES FROM ALICANTE AIRPORT

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Santa Pola - Gran Alacant - Home from Home inc UK TV, WiFi

Air con and Wi-Fi. Overlooking a Nature reserve with all day Sun on the Terrace

This top floor, corner apartment, has double aspect light in the lounge/diner and hence has a spacious feel to it.

It has one double bedroom and a twin room. sleeps 4 comfortably. The veranda benefits from morning sunshine and is a delightful place for breakfast. Blinds are fitted to keep sun out if required. The lounge/diner has 2 sofas and dining table & chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped with Oven, Hob, Fridge freezer, Microwave, Washing Machine, Dish Washer, Toaster, kettle etc. From the back door you ascend the spiral staircase to your large private roof terrace. This overlooks the nature reserve, with views to the mountains and sea. This terrace has the sun all day long and there is Sun Loungers and Table and Chairs to make the most of it. At the top of the staircase there is a gate to provide additional safety for young children. There are ceiling fans, and all windows have Insect Screens. New for Spring 2013 is WiFi, with smart phones it just seems rude not to have it !!! We all like to keep in contact with your own world. Also for Summer 2013, there is Air con units in both the master bedroom and the lounge area. These are cold and hot units so will also come in useful in the winter months....yes it can get chilly here in the winter.

The Apartment is in Gran Alacant - Down the Hill: This is ideal for both families and couples, with two pools, the children´s pool has a toddler area.

SORRY, NO SINGLE SEX PARTIES

The nearest bars and restaurants are less than 2 minutes walk, but far enough away not to be noisy.

There is a children's play area, tennis courts and gardens. We have full UK TV package, with BBC1, BBC2, 3 & 4, ITV1, 2, 3, & 4, Sky News and about 40 other channels, so you can keep up with news and soaps. !! If you need Sky Sports, the local bars have them.

The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk on flat ground, where you will find miles of golden sand, which is safe for children. During Peak season, there is a life guard, beach bar, sun beds and parasols for hire.

Further along the coast road to Santa Pola, you will find rocky shoreline, ideal for snorkelling or fishing.

Santa Pola is typically Spanish, with it´s markets on Monday & Saturday, more golden sand and relaxed pace of life. In comparison, Alicante is 20 minutes in opposite direction with plenty of nightlife and shopping.

Benidorm is only 35 miles away with attractions like Terra Mitica, Terra Natura, Aqualandia and Benidorm P

Transport: With Alicante airport 10 minutes away, and all facilities locally, including a bus service to Alicante and Santa Pola, a car is not a necessity. Bus stops at end of the road.

However, to explore the coast or go sight seeing, perhaps to Guadalest, or to plunge into the icy Algar Falls, car hire can be arranged from the Airport. This is cheaper if you pre-book on line, contact us for details.

We now have a Fun Train all year. to take you all around Gran Alacant, including the beach, bars and restaurants in the GA Commercial Centre and those bars and restaurants up the hill. Timetable in apartment and can be caught at the local bars.

Golfers Paradise in the Costa Blanca: For those of you that wish to play, the Costa Blanca has plenty to choose from.

El Plantio, Alicante, Alenda, Quesada, La Finca, Villa Martin, Las Ramblas and Campoamor spring to mind.

The nearest one being 15 minutes away.

The winter months are a favourite with golfers, as the summer is just too hot to play. As we benefit from the micro-climate in Alicante, this gives us 300 days of sunshine a year....I have not counted them personally, so you can play golf here when your local course is not so inviting.

Whether you wish to spend time chilling by the pool or in one of our many bars, or prefer to hit the nightlife, Gran Alacant is a great location for both.

We actually live here and therefore are on hand to help you enjoy your stay or for advise should you need it.

Very clean and well equipped property with an excellent roof top terrace with enough chairs, tables and recliners for all the family - no more rushing to get your towel on a sun bed first thing in the morning !

The terrace has sun all day round and despite the fact we went the last week in October the weather was superb with temperatures in the mid to late 20's all week.

Its been said on other reviews how useful the shopping trip is and I would second that. Its only 5 minutes by car but too far to walk back with the shopping and you save money.

There are a good selection of bars and restaurants within a hundred yards and the beach is only 10 to 15 minutes walk.

The owner could not be more helpful and it all lends itself to a trouble free relaxing holiday.

I would recommend it to anyone and we will certainly be looking to return

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve & Pat.
We want our guests to feel valued, and therefore we added the shopping trip. It only takes about an hour...usually.
This also gives our guests the opportunity to find out about the area and be able to plan their stay.
It also saves them some money.

We look forward to seeing you in the future.

A great place to relax and enjoy!

We had a wonderful week in Gran Alacant (which was actually October 5, 2011, not the date shown). The apartment is perfect – clean, comfortable, convenient, and is well-stocked with everything you might need. Tony and Sue are incredibly friendly and very helpful. The shopping trip is a great help to getting stocked up for the week. Sue took us to see a doctor when our daughter wasn't feeling well, and they were also very patient on departure day as we sorted out the details of our rental car.

The weather was perfect, and our 3-year-old daughter loved the beach, as well as the local train. The rooftop terrace is a great place to soak up the sun, as well as the scenery. There were some amazing sunsets to enjoy!

Thanks for a great week. Highly recommended!

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this apartment.
It really is a 'home from home' with comfortable furnishings and everything else you could expect from rental accommodation.
We were very lucky with the weather - warm and sunny every day,cool in the evenings.But that wasn't a problem as the apartment has wall heaters and a gas fire.
Tony and Sue are lovely.On hand whenever needed - even taking us shopping the day after our arrival (we didn't bother hiring a car)
Gran Alicant is very quiet at this time of year but its an ideal time to get to know the area.
Would absolutely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words.
We like to think that we go the extra mile for our guests. There are plenty of apartments to choose from, but we always consider that this is normally your annual holiday, and endeavour to make it one to remember for all the right reasons.
Any suggestions to improve your stay are welcomed.

The best family holiday we have had

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Nov-2012
  • Date of Stay: Oct 2012
This is a really great apartment, with an owner who can't do enough for you. Our sons, aged 5 and 8 loved everything - the fantastic sandy beach, the well maintained facilities of the complex, the bars and most of all the roof terrace which provided a great outside space that you don't get in many apartments.

Tony told us that the area had something of a micro climate and that certainly proved true - every day was warm and sunny whilst much of the rest of Spain had poor weather.

Overall the thing that makes this apartment very comfortable is that, as Tony and his family have lived there, everything you need is there, unlike many rentals we have had where little thought has been put in and basic items are missing. The description mentions that this is a real "HOME FROM HOME" and that is 100% accurate.
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the Excellent review.

For 2013 we are installing WiFi, seems to be a must these days. Gone are the days when going on holiday was to get away from everything !!
We are also installing two air-conditioning units in the lounge and master bedroom.
This summer was extremely hot and air-con is a necessity in July and August.
The units cool the apartment quickly, so no need to leave them on when you are out.
We pride ourselves in looking after our guests as they are all very important.

Here in Alicante we are surrounded by mountains and these prevent the rainclouds from getting here. Hence the micro-climate. It also boasts a high level of salt in the air which reduces the free moisture and this is a major benefit to anyone with aches and pains in their joints.

Also available for longer lets in the winter months, to enjoy the Spanish sunshine and way of life.

Just 10 minutes south is the typically Spanish Fishing port of Santa Pola.

Benidorm is 45 minutes up the motorway, and the picturesque Guadalest or Algar Waterfalls are about an hour away.

Other Activities:Water Sports Centre on the Beach, pedalo, kayak, wind surfing, sailing etc. all this is located next to a beach bar which is open all year round. See photos.
