We were inspired to buy a house in Spain after visiting a friends villa in Nerja. We loved it so much we wanted to own our very own place in the sun!
We love to go on holiday and feel the warmth of the sun and travel to our place with friends and family usually 6 or 7 times a year, or more if we can. With a number of cheap no frills airlines flying to Alicante, it makes it easy and very affordable to simply book a flight and pop across even for a weekend!
We have owned this property since 2006 and have successfully rented it to holiday makers for the past 7 years. For genuine testimonials please contact us! Between 2009 and 2011 we had a long term rental in the property. After these tenants left we have fully renovated the house with all new kitchen appliances and a complete makeover so its new for the 2013 summer season.
Lynn or Paula purchased this villa in 2006
A villa holiday offers total flexibility. You don't have to stick to rigid meal times, you can eat what you want, when you want! Depending on your budget you can stay in the villa doing a BBQ or meal or you have the choice to eat out in the many local bars and restaurants. If its total relaxtion you want, in the warm beautiful sunshine, a gauranteed sunbed, with all the luxury items you have in your own home, then we truly believe you will love every minute of your stay in our villa and in the resort of Gran Alacant.
Gran Alacant is a mix of residential properties and holiday homes with people from all nationalities visiting the area. The area has a great tourist feel to the place with many bars, restaurants and shops and its also very close to a fantastic beach and nature park. Many people speak english so there is no need to worry about language barriers.
The outdoor space in our villa is pretty special, with various places for plenty of sunbeds and tables and chairs. The villa is south facing so you can literally catch the sun from sunrise to senset!
We have furnished the insiside to a very high standard to make your stay extremly comfortable, so you feel like its 'home from home!'
We arrived at the villa after a very long journey to be met by Martin, who was extremely helpful and provided all the information we needed about the villa and the local area. The villa was very comfortable and beautifully furnished and was spotlessly clean. We were there for two weeks and the weather was fantastic the first week, but a bit mixed the second week. The outdoor areas at the villa are simply amazing, great areas for relaxing on the sunbeds by the pool or for eating dinner outside. The BBQ was great and we highly recommend the butchers at the GA Centre for meat for the bbq. The free WIFI and TV channels were great too. All in all a fantastic holiday and a great place to unwind and relax!!
I stayed at this villa the first week in May with my 11 year old son. I will start by saying the pictures do not do the place justice, its perfect in every sense of the word. The pool is fantastic and there are ample sun beds and places to dream the day away and top up the tan. There is a roof terrace with sun beds, space around the pool and a table tennis table for the more energetic. Overall, we were very happy with our stay at the Villa The villa was clean, modern and spacious, and had everything you could possibly need. It was spotless and as clean as you would expect in your own home. There was only me and my son, however it is extremely spacious, with 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We felt quite safe and secure as the villa has a large wall all around and is gated with bars on all of the windows. The location of the villa itself is around 10 minutes from the airport (15/20 Euros in a taxi). A short walk from the villa is a square with great bars and restaurants. There are supermarkets close by, ideal for getting the food for the great BBQ at the villa! Will definitely be recommending this villa to our friends and family and also will be looking to go back again ourselves soon. The only downside, we only had a week and did not get to explore more of the beautiful surrounding area.
When arranging to book this villa the owners were extremely helpful. Upon arrival we were met at the villa by Mark who provided a very handy welcome pack at very little cost. The villa itself is beautiful, spotlessly clean and well furnished. We thoroughly enjoyed the outside area. The pools fantastic and the BBQ was great. Lynn and Paula also provided info on a local taxi service ie Mark, who was great for getting about. We stayed for two weeks and the weather was perfect the whole time. We had our 9 month old baby with us and this villa had everything we needed, ie cot and highchair etc. Alicante is only 20 mins away and is an amazing city. All in all a great holiday rental at a reasonable price that we would happily return to. Thanks again Lynn and Paula for letting us your beautiful home. Kind regards Kieran and Sammy. Isle of Man
