About Geoff Robins
A Family owned property. This is our winter home to escape the drab dreary weather of the UK with our children and grandchildren.
Geoff Robins purchased this House in 2014
Why Geoff Robins chose Jávea
We have owned various properties in Javea for the last 15 years. Apart from the, mostly, beautiful weather, beaches and sea there is such a huge variety of things to see and do in the area from experiencing the local fiestas and festivals of Javea, of which there are many throughout the year, to the full on intensity of the theme parks and clubs in Benidorm, the lovely old culture of the cities of Alicante and Valencia and the beautiful countryside in the mountains behind Javea with the mountain town of Guadalest, the caves at Benidoleig and the waterfalls at the Fuente S'algar. We have been coming to Javea for over twenty years and have never been bored!!
What makes this House unique
Casa Petirrojos is located in one of the Altamar gated communities. These are located in one of the nicest and quietest areas of the Arenal. The townhouse is one of the largest on the community and only one of three that has a south facing aspect over the beautiful communal gardens and swimming pool. The property catches the sun all day long but, if things get too hot, there is a lovely cool terrace to escape to on the other side of the property. The ground floor terrace leads out onto the secure garden area with two swimming pools, one a good pool for adults to swim in and the other one perfect for children to paddle in. Both pools can easily be viewed from the top terrace so you have peace of mind when the children are playing

Great house, great location will definitely return next year
Javea is a very family friendly location, great for families with teenagers, location of house was perfect for both the port and Arenal beach.
Thanks very much for your kind review. We’re glad that you had such a good time and look forward to welcoming you back again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this spacious townhouse. The home is well maintained and is close to Arenal Beach and not too far from Javea Old town & harbour.
We would have given five stars if basic cleaning materials had been left from previous renters and not removed. It seemed most unusual that there was not even a single bin bag to put in the bin, considering that there was a note on top that a bin bag must be used or remains of any other dish cleaning items.
Thank you for the positive and constructive review. Sorry about the cleaning materials. Our cleaner is very enthusiastic and is extremely thorough with her cleaning. However, she should have left a basic pack of some washing liquid, scouring pads and bin liners. We apologise for the oversight and will check that this is done for future rentals.
We're pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our house and look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
stayed here sept 2017
Could not recommend this property highly enough. excellent location, well equipped kitchen beds were very comfortable, very clean house, and help was always just a phone call away, will book this again next time i go to Javea.
Thanks very much for the lovely review. We're very pleased that you had a good time and look forward to welcoming you back to the sunny Costa Blanca!!
A lovely house in a great location - only a short walk to the Arenal for the beach and restaurants - and on a very nice community. Plenty of room for everyone to spend time chilling together - or apart! Jenna was lovely and helpful. Much enjoyed by us all, thank you.
Thank you for the lovely review. We're glad that you had a good time.
I will pass your comments on to Jenna.
Would love to have you stay again sometime.
Excellent location but lacking in basics
What a fantastic location. Excellent, child friendly secure development with superb access to the pool. Easy access to the lovely Arenal Beach, and walkable to the characterful port. The old town is stunningly kept with restaurants and cafes for everyone. Javea was a huge hit for us and we will certainly return. Don't go if you want to be spoken to in English everywhere you go - we thoroughly enjoyed hearing very few English accents, and feeling like we really were in real Spain.
The main reason after such great reviews on the development and Javea itself for not giving 5 stars is we felt that the house was showing signs of being 'tired', and certainly bathrooms in need of modernisation, and that the kitchen was seriously under-equipped if you wanted to cook in (seems we are the first to do so). Also, there was absolutely nothing left from previous renters, not even salt and pepper or washing up liquid. We had to purchase a significant amount of basics all of which we requested to be left for the next arrivals.
That said, we would rent again - although see 2018 summer is already booked up! I should note that the managing agent was very helpful when needed (arrived to only 4 wine glasses!!) and Geoff was extremely helpful pre our arrival.
Thanks very much for your very balanced and constructive review which is much appreciated. Sorry about the initial problem with the wine glasses which was speedily resolved by Jenna Regarding the kitchen utensils the house is equipped pretty much the same as most other rental properties in the area and this has never previously been an issue. I would be most grateful if you could separately email me a list of items that you feel should be included and we can then see what we can do over the winter to improve for next season. The reason why it appears that the kitchen has not been used for cooking is that both the oven and hob are new this season and we have also recently replaced the fridge/freezer and installed the washing machine. Regarding the bathrooms, these rooms get the most wear and tear in the house. The top bathroom was refitted a few years ago. The other bathrooms are in good condition although a little tired, (chipped bath enamel etc) . The problem is that completely refitting the bathrooms including the tiling would cost around £6-£10 k a go which is prohibitively expensive for us . We will look at "freshening up" the bathrooms over the winter when we undertake the annual maintenance checks on the property. Cleaning comments also noted. The cleaner is instructed to completely clean the house from top to bottom for handover. We will ask her if she can leave some items behind in future! Glad everything else worked out for you, we will pass your comments onto Jenna and would love to have you stay again. Kind Regards Geoff
