About Mike and Eleanor
Casa Windlenook is the culmination of years of personal design and detailed planning by the owners - Mike and Eleanor. We became so fed up with the standards offered by so-called 'luxury' villas on previous villa holidays, on one occasion even sleeping on the sofa for 2 weeks as it was more comfortable than the beds on offer in a four bedroom villa! When we go on holiday, as with most people, our time is precious and a villa which does not live up to expectations can be a real disappointment.
Mike and Eleanor purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Mike and Eleanor chose Benitachell / El Poble Nou de Benitatxell
So, we decided to design and build our own villa, and do it right! Our professional lives in Hotel Management Consulting for 5 star hotels and Sales Leadership, have given us travel and hotel experiences all around the world, which have helped us create what we believe is one of the highest quality villa experiences you could wish for. Immaculate presentation, thoughtful touches to make your stay the best that it can be, and 'location, location, location' - it really is hard to beat!
What makes this Villa unique
A truly breath-taking location, you will LOVE this villa and the top of the range furnishings and amenities throughout. During several years of successful rental we have been fortunate to welcome discerning guests from around the world, and continue to re-invest in the property to keep it in tip top condition. Our regular guests return to stay again year after year - we look forward to welcoming you too! Eleanor & Mike Casa Windlenook

Great stay with marvelous views, heated pool and great BBQ equipment. Really nice stay for 6 adults and one small child. We spent every evening dining at our terrace!
We're delighted you had such a wonderful week, and all the family particularly enjoyed the stunning views, the pool and BBQ! Thank you for choosing Casa Windlenook for your special family stay - look forward to welcoming you back again. Eleanor & Mike
A superb villa!
What a fantastic villa! We loved the views, the facilities, the cleanliness and, of course, the sunshine! The owners were excellent throughout the booking process too!! Highly recommended without reservation (and we are fussy!!).
Thanks so much for the wonderful comments and recommendation Steve - coming from a 'fussy' family it makes us even happier !!! Most of all we're delighted you had such a fantastic time at Casa Windlenook - thank you for choosing our villa!
Fantastic Property with Brilliant Sea Views
Myself and my partner were looking to book a holiday together at the last minute and by sheer good fortune we were able to get timely communication with Mike and Eleanor to arrange so quickly.
The villa was exceptional and was situated in a quiet, clean, peaceful residential area, with the added bonus of having a picturesque view out to sea affording sunshine throughout the day with lovely sunsets in the evening. Crucially for myself the terrace also has a shaded area with dining table outside which meant my partner and I could still be together comfortably without one of us being on a different level. The terrace also overlooks the pool area so I'm sure it would be the perfect vantage point from which parents could keep an eye on any children and there is an electric awning which is easy to use for shade when down at the pool.
The interior of the villa has been finished to an exceptionally high standard. It is very light and very clean.The kitchen, living room, and internal dining area are open plan and provide a very spacious area for families to relax in, with sliding doors out onto the terrace. There is also a 3D HDTV attached to the wall with DVD player which does have Sky UK and therefore football available.
The owners have done a fantastic job of making your stay as easy and enjoyable as possible and the local property manager, Lorraine, is lovely and will always be on hand to help or give advice if you need it. There is a comprehensive information book, some games, books, binoculars and WiFi which is helpful for Google Maps (P.S. Google Maps now has an offline feature which means you can still be tracked whilst in Airplane mode)
You will definitely need a car for this property, however the drive to the beautiful town of Moraira is not difficult, with parking available just before you get into the town and from there an incredibly short walk to the beach and restaurants. Moraira is probably the closest town and we ourselves didn't travel to Javea or Denia this time but they seem fairly close too. Within Cumbre Del Sol there is also a fantastic restaurant, Restaurant La Cumbre, just next to the Pepe La Sal supermarket which is worth trying out.
Hopefully this review has helped you realise what a great villa this is, and if so, I've given something back for the lovely week we spent there. Thank you to Mike and Eleanor for a fantastic stay and to Lorraine for being so helpful. We'll be back again in the near future!
Certificate of Excellence greatly deserved.
We had a wonderful stay and will be going back in 2017. The customer service was excellent before we even visited the villa, which gave us great confidence regarding what to expect on arrival. The description of the villa was accurate and the photos too it is every bit as beautiful as it looks. The amenities were superb. The hosts have honestly thought of everything needed for a wonderful holiday, in the kitchen, lounge, bedrooms bathrooms and outside.
The welcome pack is the best we have ever had.
It is stated in the advert that a car is essential and this s true however several lovely, welcoming towns with numorous restaurants to choose from are close by which entails a very short drive.
If you want a change from the super pool ( we had it heated) the sandy beach is a short drive away. The villa was very clean and well maintained with plenty of household equipment if needed.
I would recommend this villa to friends and family without hesitation.
Thank you Kathleen for your lovely feedback - we're so pleased you had such a wonderful stay and loved the charming local towns too. We're delighted to be welcoming you back next year!
Definetely on our favorite list!
All rentals should be this comfortable!
This property leaves little to be desired. The mattresses, sofas, and dining chairs were all very comfortable. The kitchen was well-supplied not only with utensils and appliances, but even with some food items. Nice wool blankets and cozy gas fireplace for the winter. Everything was in working order, and there were no musty smells or unpleasant odors. Lovely view, elaborate home-entertainment system, quiet neighborhood (in February at least), helpful caretaker. A car is essential. The location is often breezy.
CUMBRE DEL SOL:
Described as the 'Balcony of the Mediterranean', the extraordinary location of La Cumbre del Sol offers spectacular and panoramic views from points rising to up to 300m above sea level. In an area considered by the World Health Organization to have ‘one of the most environmentally perfect climates in the world', Cumbre del Sol borders National Parkland, and also has it’s own picturesque private beach (Moraig beach). Cumbre del Sol has twice hosted the finish of a stage of the cycle road race, 'La Vuelta a Espagne', most recently in 2017. It is a very popular area for road cycling with many testing themselves on the now famous Puig de la Llorenca hill climb. It is spectacular scenery with photo opportunities at every turn including the famous Montgo ('Elephant Mountain'), the Bernia mountains, the Cape de la Nao - the most easterly point of Spain - the dramatic Ifach Rock at Calpe, and as far east as Ibiza.
Close to the traditional Spanish towns of Moraira, Denia and Javea each with superb sandy beaches, marinas and plentiful restaurants, this is a sought-after location for those looking for quality and style.
Facilities available on Cumbre del Sol include a supermarket, restaurant, bar, cafe, chemist, bank, hairdresser, horse-riding, tennis and private beach.
Moraira – 10 minutes to this beautiful, cosmopolitan town with 2 beaches, castle, a lovely Yacht Marina and a plethora of restaurants and charming street cafés.
