The house is very well equipped with everything you need, it is furnished to a very high standard. The urbanisation is very clean and in a lovely quiet area with a few restaurants and shops within a 5 min walk. Would recommend a visit to Gloria's on the beach front, excellent food at very reasonable prices and very friendly staff. My Dream Restaurant just round the corner is excellent for an Indian again at very reasonable prices. The small shop at Frutals does the basics at great prices, there is also a small bar here that does good food and nice glasses of wine for €1. The closest Mercadona is about a 30min stroll, if you take the wheeled shopping trolley then its a very pleasant walk up and you can have a refreshment before you come back as there is a great bar doing great tapas. The sun terrace is amazing and very private with lovely views and a great breeze, it was in high 30's when we stayed and this was most welcome. The front patio is great to sit in the morning for breakfast and in the afternoon with a glass of wine. The facilties are 1st class more than plently of stuff should you wish to cook. The pool area is very clean and while we were there was quiet so it was like having our own pool. The cost of the electricity was very reasonable - €28.50 for 2 weeks, we used the AC on a few occasions, done a few washing in the machine and used the hob occasionally, so no issues with this at all. The bus on the beach road takes you to either to La Mata or into Torrevieja (about €2 each, each way) it is every 30 mins and is reliable. It takes about 30mins to stroll along the beach front to the area where there is more resturants. Once you are there for a few days and get to know the area you can wander along the back streets and be at the Marina area in about 40 mins where you will find more tourist attractions, night market and vast amounts of places to eat and sit and watch the world go by. We were very sad that we had to leave and will most defiantly be going back.

We had our daughter, son in law and baby boy with us . It was absolutely superb, very private and quiet at night . It is very bright and tastefully decorated . We used the heated swimming pool every day . Lovely to come back in the evenings and enjoy the outside dining area . Would have no hesitation in renting it again . Thank you David and Marjorie and thank you to Graeme for looking after us. Pat and Patricia
