Fantastic Apartment in a fantastic part of Alicante
This apartment is absolutely perfect with three bedrooms one with an en-suite. We were only four people because one our group couldn't make it at the last minute but the apartment would have been perfect if we had been five, or even the maximum of six occupants.
The apartment is in what I assume is a residential block so having respect for the neighbours is essential, this of course means that things were also nice and quiet for us.
In addition, the apartment had everything we needed, from comfortable sofas to the kitchen essentials including a dishwasher, not that we cooked much as there are so many fantastic restaurants very close by.
Alicante is enormous and we seemed to be in a more residential and business area which was perfect for us as it made things very relaxing. Although the more touristy part was only a 5-10 minute walk away if we wanted a more exciting evening than just enjoying one of the many local restaurants.
We had a hire car and parking was easy. Because we were out for most of every day we mostly used the street parking available directly outside the entrance to the apartment block, which is free overnight, so the odd Euro now and again just gave is a little more time in the mornings. On the one day we didn't use the car we placed it in one of the many public parking lots which was easy to use and a very reasonable price.
What we found nice, although it did put us to the test as we knew very little Spanish, is that most of the shops, bars, and restaurants were Spanish run with a lot of the staff knowing little of no English. It made the holiday different and we feel that we have really visited beautiful Spain and Alicante and not just another hotel in the sun with a pool and lots of bars and drunk people.
Last but not least I have to mention how friendly Paco was (Mateo's brother in law) who showed us around the apartment, we were delighted as soon as he opened the front door and felt at home straight away.
We had a fantastic time in Alicante and this apartment was one of the reasons, I can honestly recommend it anybody who is visiting Alicante for a proper holiday and not just one spent in bars or clubs.

El transporte público es bueno, y el apartamento está en un buen lugar en la ciudad. Muchas gracias por todo Mateo, nos alegramos de que conozcamos.
Comfortable and well-appointed apartment
The apartment is as described in the online details. It is conveniently located with lifts to get you to the third floor and there are nearby shops and bus stops. Beach is 10-15 minutes walk away. Small balcony which is sheltered and catches winter sun between about 10.30 and 5. Alicante is a good centre for visiting other interesting places (the bus station is round the corner and train station about 10 minutes' walk). Mateo and his wife are very pleasant, welcoming and helpful.
Martin y Barbara son un matrimonio muy simpaticos, agradables y muy cuidadosos con los objetos y mobiliario. Siempre seran bienvenidos en nuestro apartamento cuando ellos quieran.

Good location, clean, great for children, friendly host
We had a great holiday in this appartment, it was very clean and well presented. We were met outside by the host and shown around the appartment and how to access it. You go up one floor then outside across a balcony and then up another two floors. There was a lift for the pushchair so you don't need to use the stairs.
We went with the family including a 14 month old. The flat had all we needed for the baby including a washing machine which came in very handy when we had got through all her clothes.
The flat had English TV and WiFi which suited the older girls and even a DVD player. There are many play parks very close to the flat which all the girls loved and kept them entertained for hours.
The beach was about a 20 minute walk away but easily accessable. It never felt like a long walk as there was always something to see on the way or another park to have a play on. The shops, old town, castle and tram station are also all easily accessable from the flat so everything that you could want is within walking distance.
There is a little supermarket abaout 2 doors away that we used and stocked most items that we needed. It was open from 9 in the morning to about 9.30 at night every day. There are also local street markets that are worth a visit and stock a wide variety of foods and other items.
If we come on holiday to Alicante again we would choose to stay here again.
Ha sido un placer de haber acogido a esta familia en nuestra casa ya que se han portado maravillosamente, amables, simpáticos y respetuosos con todo lo que hay en el apartamento y con los demás vecinos. Les esperamos en sus próximas vacaciones.
Really well equipped and comfortable apartment.
Pasamos una semana muy agradable en el piso de Mateo.
Mateo es muy amable.
