It's a home from home but better. We could not fault the property, the gardens are beautiful and very private- there was really no need to step outside your garden area. The pool was great and was very clean. Guy the key holder was very helpful and took us to the supermarket on arrival which was much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble. You can tell that the owners have put a lot of thought and love into the property- it's fabulous! We love the area - the bus service and tourist train make getting around really easy and there are plenty of shops nearby and a good number of reasonably priced bars and restaurants. We can't wait to go back!
This apartment is absolutely superb. The owners have created an oasis of tranquillity where you can totally cut yourself off from the outside world. The apartment itself has everything that you need and is very comfortable but the jewel is the outside space - the verandah, garden and private pool. A gem!
The apartment was exactly as described on the website. There was obvious care taken in choices of decoration in the garden as well as in the accommodation. We really loved the pool although small was big enough to swim lengths and also deep in one end too. The garden was surrounded by a high white wall with two lovely palm trees which made it easy to spot when you are in a cab coming home after a night out. The bedrooms both have new air con and beds are comfortable. With the blinds down it is quite dark and can be hard to get up in the morning! There is a good size flat screen TV in the living room plus a radio /CD player. The kitchen is small but contains all you need including a washing machine. There is also a supermarket just over the road so easy to buy a few beers, bread etc. Plus there is a good Scandinavian restaurant next to the supermarket and various other restaurants near the apartment. The beach is a bit of a hike on foot coming back up a hill. There are good bus connections though and a road train which gets you down the hill for three euros. A taxi into Alicante will cost about 25 euros. We loved the place and our holiday.
We had the most relaxing holiday ever and the owners gave us a fantastic welcome.
From the moment we stepped through the gate we were amazed by how clean, spacious and tranquil the villa and gardens were. There is a supermarket literally a stone's throw from the villa itself and bars/restaurants are just a short stroll away in the neighbouring complex. We caught the land train down to Carabassi beach one day, which again was a simple and short trip. We didn't hire a car but what with being only a 15 minute taxi ride from the airport and having all you need within walking distance, we didn't miss having one. You really can't go wrong with hiring this villa - it was perfect for our short stay (3 adults for 4 nights) and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again if returning to the area. The gardens and pool area were beautiful and so private. The villa itself has everything you might need and is more than spacious enough. There's plenty of seating in the gardens, as well as sunbeds and a lovely al fresco terrace for eating in the shade. I have to give special mention to Guy, the keyholder. He was super accommodating and really made us feel welcome. Our flight arrived at Alicante just after 10am and although check-in shouldn't have been until 3pm he was more than happy for us to head straight to the villa and drop off our bags while he carried on with cleaning after the previous guests had checked out that morning. We were also able to stay until lunchtime on departure day as our flight wasn't until 3.30pm. What a nice man - please pass on our thanks! So overall I would definitely recommend staying here and would say it was superb value for money!
Couldn't fault the holiday in any way. Thanks to the owners for another fantastic stay at their lovely apartment. Have lost count of the times that we have been back to this accommodation. The location is fantastic with a well stocked supermarket less than 1 minute walk away. There are also bars and restaurants within a 5 minute walk. We went to Dunbars which had been shut on previous years. The ribs were fantastic. Never had ribs with so much meat on them. Also had the set menu. Fab. Give it a try. See you again in September. Thanks also to Alicante Holiday Villas for all their helpfulness they have given us over the years. The booking process is always easy and straightforward and always promptly return our security deposit.
Gran Alacant, where all our holiday rental villas and apartments are situated, is a residential area and therefore perfect for families – just a few miles south of the vibrant and beautiful city of Alicante and just to the north of the traditional Spanish seaside town of Santa Pola. Nestling in the hills above Alicante Bay, there are stunning views across to the city and the castle of Santa Barbara and northwards to the Crevillente mountains.
The few miles distance to the airport make Gran Alacant a particularly good place to stay as you can be in your holiday rental accommodation in less than an hour from landing and, because Gran Alacant is not on the flight path, there is no aircraft noise.

Close to Gran Alacant and just five minutes by car, is the typically Spanish resort of Los Arenales del Sol. Facing onto miles of sand duned beaches, cleaned each day, Los Arenales is a popular weekend destination for people from Alicante and families from all over Spain have holiday homes here. In the resort are plenty of bars and restaurants, some with superb views of the sea and Alicante on the other side of the bay. During the spring and summer water sports of all types are available from the beach. For beach lovers, a lazy day at Los Arenales is highly recommended.
For walkers there are a number of clearly marked trails in the El Clot Nature Park in Gran Alacant. Birdwatchers will also enjoy following the trails as there are many species to be seen at all times of the year. A little further afield there is excellent walking near the Santa Pola lighthouse whose light can be seen most evenings from Gran Alacant.
