We stayed in this wonderful villa for 7 nights which wasn't long enough in my opinion! We had such a brilliant week. From enquiring about booking to our arrival James the owner was so responsive with messages and really helpful. As was the key holder that greeted us on our arrival. The villa had everything you could possibly need including a washing machine with the kitchen being very well equipped and a large fridge freezer with plenty of room. The villa was immaculate the pictures don't do it justice. The Wi-Fi was brilliant we never had any problems with it and the villa also has Apple TV so we could use our Netflix account which was an added bonus. There was a Bluetooth speaker in one of the rooms which we used but we couldn't work out how to recharge it.
Outside is just as beautiful, spacious with so much furniture to sit on around the outside areas. We loved watching the sun come up as we ate breakfast outside on the raised patio area which overlooked the lovely pool. There were 4 loungers to sunbathe on and some comfy seating. The outside shower was lovely and warm which was brilliant especially for our toddler so he could get showered before and after the pool. The pool was super clean and so warm I miss swimming in it every afternoon. There is also a huge roof terrace with a BBQ .
The villa is in a great location - walk able to a huge beach (it is lovely but not much shade) and restaurants. There's an amazing ice cream place you must try out, can't remember the name but it's really good! You can also catch a little train which is 3€ return each from the campsite which is located at the bottom of the hill towards the beach to the right. The train starts at 6pm and takes you into the port our toddler loved that. The port is quiet in the day but comes alive at night and has lots going on with some great restaurants by the marina. You do need a car here - we flew into Alicante airport and it was a really easy drive of 1.5hrs to the villa. There are some amazing beaches not far away in the car and lots of supermarkets to choose from. There's an information pack in the villa with helpful maps and lots of info and tips - the train needs adding into that if possible.
As you can tell from this review we loved it, we like to go somewhere different every year but if I could have two holidays I'd come here for one of them! Only minor niggle was paying 25€ for a travel cot and we couldn't locate a highchair in the villa but apart from that perfect!
Spent a great week here, apartment has everything you could possibly need and is so central to the beach, harbour and restaurants. Immaculately clean and very comfortable and provides a great base for touring the area. We visited numerous different beaches and have been to La Manga and Cartagena - both well worth a visit.
