Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Andy,



I thought I would drop you an e-mail, my husband, grandchildren and myself had a really wonderful time in your villa and the swimming pool was out of this world. Pinomar has changed an awful lot since we were there last, but we managed to get around. We will certainly consider renting again and will recommend you to friends and family.



Thank you once again.

Excellent location close to beach

  • 5 of 5

This was the third time we have stayed at the Balcon a Mar Villa, the first time we have stayed with our young son. The villa itself is superb with excellent amenities for a great holiday holiday and the onsite Villa representatives Peggy and Gerard are very helpful, (a really nice touch is a stocked fridge upon arrival which is great if arriving late after a flight)

Villa location is great short walking distance from a superb beach which has beach bar which provides drinks and food, if feeling energetic you can take a walk to La Mata which takes about 30 minutes.

The villa itself has 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen area. It also had WiFi & satellite TV. The pool area is excellent with barbecue and sun sun loungers, the pool itself is excellent very clean and maintained weekly, its an essential feature as the weather can be very hot in this part of the world..

The villa is located close (but not too close) to the main road which is very convenient for trips to Torrevieja ( where there are some great restaurants), Alicante, La Mata and surrounding areas , a rental car is essential to get the most out of your stay

There is a restaurant and bar on the other side of the road from the villa and a conveniently located service station for groceries although the local Carrefour (10 mins drive) should meet all your shopping requirements.

We would recommend the Balcon a Mar Villa to anyone and will be going back again in the near future.

Superb villa and holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our week’s holiday at the Balcon a Mar Villa. The villa itself is superb with more than enough room to accommodate 2 couples (4 adults) with all of the amenities you would need to have a completely flexible holiday i.e. staying in some evenings to eat as well as going out for dinner on others. There was plenty of storage, 2 bathrooms, good size bedrooms, very clean and with well needed fans available to use. It also had WiFi which was a real benefit.

The pool was absolutely stunning and was very clean (with a lovely dolphin welcoming you each day!!) It was an essential feature as the weather was great but very hot. Many an afternoon and evening was enjoyed in the pool. A good size as well as you could get a few lengths done each day if you are feeling energetic.

The location is very good as it is a short (10 minute) walk to the beautiful dunes and beach which is extensive and always had plenty of room to sunbathe. There is a well situated beach bar which offers drinks and food (and very generous cocktails!!) and you can take a long walk on the edge of the sea and go to La Mata which only takes about 25 minutes.

La Mata can also be reached along the road with plenty of walkways/cycle paths making it safe. There is a great market on Wednesdays which is worth a visit and then plenty of restaurants and bars along the coastline.

We would definitely recommend a car as although there is enough to cover everything within walking distance or a bike ride (bikes were also available at the villa), there is so much more to see and do in the local area. An amazing restaurant called Barlovento in Torrevieja is a must visit if you like seafood and paella. Really superb food and a very good selection of wine. The waiter Ricardo was also very entertaining. The restaurant and bar on the other side of the road from the villa on the hill is also great if you want to enjoy some welcome shade and a drink within walking distance.

Overall I would recommend the Balcon a Mar Villa to everyone and look forward to booking again in the future. Thank you!!

Great Introduction to Spanish life

  • 4 of 5

Sorry for the late posting of review - life takes over some times

We had the most relaxing holiday ever here. A villa holiday is a must if it is peace and relaxation you are looking for. My husband and I had a really great two weeks. We found the villa was well equipped for our needs.

We are planning on retiring to the Costa Blanca area and this was a first holiday for us to mainland Spain and I must admit we where not dis-appointed .

Great communication with Andy throughout the whole booking and paying process. We had no need to call on Peggy or Gerard throughout our stay.

We hired a car for the fortnight - really good rates - and we used this most days - (the Carrerfour Hypermarked was frequented a lot lol) and we ventured to further towns.

Would definetely recommend staying here

Thanks for the use of your lovely home

Excellence place to stay

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious villa, a very warm welcome on arrival! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to all of our friends. The beach was approximately 10 mins walk away and there were some lovely places to eat which were walking distance, by car they were only about 10 mins drive!! It was great to be able to chill by the pool at the villa some days and then others going to the beach which was lovely as it was a lovely sandy beach!! We will defo be going back next year!

Stayed at villa balcon a mar for two weeks.

The villa was nice but was a little old-fashioned. The biggest problem for us was that there was no air-conditioning. There were fans available to use but they made no difference as they were only blowing hot air into our faces. You would need a lot more fans. This made our stay very uncomfortable as it was extremely warm at night and none of us could sleep at night.

I feel that a car is essential as there is not much to do in this part of town. We therefore went to guardamar which was lovely.

There is 24/7 garage/shop across the road. However you do have to cross a very busy road which could be very dangerous to get to it.

The wardrobe in the second bedroom had an awful smell.

The pool was lovely and the welcome pack was a nice touch.

Overall I was disappointed with the villa and I will not be returning to this villa or recommending the villa to any of my friends.

Owner's Response: I'm glad you found the Villa nice and were pleased with the pool and welcome pack. However I'm sorry that you found it very uncomfortable without air-conditioning. Unfortunately to run air-conditioning units in the Villa becomes very expensive and would therefore increase the rental price. Speaking to previous tenants and reading other reviews I get the impression that the majority would rather have cheaper rental than air-con. It has also been one of the hottest summers for a long time in this area of Spain. I've had the cupboard in the twin room checked out and there was a musty smell, probably because it doesn't get the regular use like the main bedroom. We've arranged for it to be completely cleaned out and re-decorated. We do recommend hiring a car as there are some lovely places to visit like Guardamar as you quite rightly pointed out. However if all you want is a relaxing beach and pool holiday and don't mind a little walking then you can manage without. Andy
